The Right wonders why Kimmel, Hillary Clinton can’t get the argument straight


A roundup of editorials Thursday points out flaws in Democrats’ plans to prevent shootings, why Jimmy Kimmel isn’t the voice of the nation and how wrong Hillary Clinton and Sen. Tim Kaine are on silencers.

Opinions from the Right:

1. Dems have no idea how to prevent mass shootings

From The Federalist: Short of confiscating weapons in this country, there is very little that can be done to prevent another incident like the one in Las Vegas.

2. Crying on TV doesn't qualify Kimmel to set nation's gun agenda

From The Hill: Sorry, Jimmy Kimmel, emotional monologues about the killings in Las Vegas is not the way to effect change in the nation’s gun laws.

3. Hillary's Running Mate: Vegas massacre was stopped because the shooter didn't have a silencer

From Townhall.com: Both Hillary Clinton and her 2016 running-mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, argued in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting that if proposed legislation aimed at easing restrictions on “silencers” had been in place, more people would have lost their lives. Townhall’s Guy Benson calls on them to check some facts first.
