If they’re not blaming the murderous actions of a criminal on the 2nd Amendment, they’re blaming it on “small government.” Everyone knows that the government is there to protect us and take care of us from cradle to grave. Why would anyone want to diminish the government’s ability to be our safety and security to whom we flee when crisis strikes? Just like we shouldn’t be talking about additional gun rights at a time like this, we also shouldn’t be talking about spending cuts. At least, that’s what some people like the D.C. Mayor believe.
According to Vincent Gray the D.C. Mayor, unnecessary and fiscally irresponsible spending cuts from sequestration are what led to the Navy Yard murder spree:
It’s hard to know, [but] certainly, as I look at, for example, sequestration, which is about saving money in the federal government being spent, that we somehow skimped on what would be available for projects like this, and then we put people at risk. Obviously 12 people have paid the ultimate price for whatever — you know — whatever was done to have this man on the base. It really is hard to believe that someone with a record as checkered as this man could conceivably get clearance, could get credentials, to be able to get on the base. I just met with the commandant of the Washington Navy Yard last week. We were talking about the security and we know this is one of the most secure facilities in the nation. So how this could happen is beyond belief.
