It turns out Pamela Geller was right, the attack was in fact an act of jihadi terrorism. And it didn’t take long for the civilian disarmament complex to figuratively shoot themselves in the foot when they tried to make political hay out of the situation before the fact became clear. It wasn’t a “school shooting” by some half-cocked Trump voter. It was a Somali refugee who was obviously not properly vetted, and was allowed to not only resettle in Columbus, but was enrolled as a freshman at Ohio State.
From PJ Media:
What was originally reported as an “active shooter situation” at Ohio State this morning was soon revealed to be a car-ramming/stabbing terrorist attack by an 18 -year-old Somali Muslim refugee named Abdul Artan.
Law enforcement officials told NBC News the suspect’s name is Abdul Artan, an 18-year-old student at the university. He was a Somali refugee who left his homeland with his family in 2007, lived in Pakistan and then came to the United States in 2014 as a legal permanent resident of the United States, officials said.
While events were still unfolding, a number of liberals embarrassed themselves on Twitter by pushing a gun-control narrative before the facts surrounding the attack were established. Here are the top five hot-takes from lefty gun-grabbers who couldn’t let the crisis at Ohio State go to waste.
Tim Kaine led the charge, but was joined by such notable hoplophobes as California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsome, Shannon Watts and others. Left-wing fake-news site Vox even went “full potato” and published a piece on “America’s Gun Problem”
It leaves you wondering if the wounded cared much that the perp, who is now assuming room temperature courtesy of Ohio State University Officer Alan Horujko’s quick response and accurate marksmanship, chose to use his car and a knife, rather than a gun.
After all, the ISIS leadership doesn’t seem to care much. They are actively encouraging such attacks.
