Grandpa of Uvalde victim says America is no longer ‘One nation under God’: ‘We’re under guns’

Media descended on Uvalde, Texas in the aftermath of last week’s horrific mass murder at a local elementary school, seeking out the grieving family members of the young victims in pursuit of ratings as well as to push the left’s fanatical anti-gun agenda, and the grandfather of one slain child provided MSNBC with a perfect sound bite.

According to Victor Cabrales whose 10-year-old granddaughter Eliahna Torres was among the 19 children who were slaughtered along with two adult teachers in their classroom last Tuesday, the United States is no longer a nation under God, but a nation under guns.

In an interview that aired Monday, Cabrales spoke with MSNBC reporter Sam Brock, expressing criticism of President Joe Biden’s trip to Uvalde on Sunday where he consoled family members of the victims and visited a makeshift memorial at Robb Elementary School with members of the assembled crowd shouting at him to “do something” about guns.

Brock laid the emotional groundwork as he told viewers that Torres’ grandfather wrote a personal letter to be delivered to Biden, allowing Cabrales to provide details on what he said in the message.

“Well, I was, you know, like I hear him say we are one nation under God, and really we ain’t no more,” he said. “We’re under guns.”

“He has power to change it,” said Laura Cabrales, the slain child’s aunt, “and he can do it, he can, and it needs to change because how many more lives are gonna be taken and another family’s gonna lose their child, or their niece, their cousins.”

The emotionally distraught grandfather added “Two weeks ago we were playing here, playing here,” he said, “I bought her a new glove. She never had a chance to play in a game.”

Pressure on Biden to “do something” about guns continues to mount with the left seizing on the Uvalde carnage to push for severe new restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans in the finest tradition of the Rahm Emanuel maxim of never letting a really good crisis “go to waste,” a golden opportunity that the gun-grabbers are determined not to squander as a step towards the left’s Holy Grail of disarmament.

On Monday, Biden seemed to shift the goal posts away from semi-automatic rifles to ordinary handguns, especially the hugely popular 9mm handgun, a weapon that is the choice of millions of Americans for home defense.

“A 9 millimeter bullet blows the lung out of the body,” Biden said. “So the idea of these high-caliber weapons — there’s simply no rational basis for it in terms of self-protection, hunting.”

North of the border in what U.S. leftists will see as a perfect example of what they are demanding domestically, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau – a darling of liberals – took a major step towards total gun confiscation when surrounded by creepy masked parliament members, he declared a “freeze” on handguns.

“Today, we’re moving forward. We’re introducing legislation to implement a national freeze on handgun ownership. What this means is it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer, or import handguns anywhere in Canada,” the preening young fascist decreed.

“In other words, we’re capping the market on handguns,” he added, charting a course for Canada to follow Australia with the most Draconian gun restrictions in the western world.

It will be up to Republicans in Congress to hold the line against the coming hyper-aggressive push to move the ball down the field on disarmament, whether they are up to the task remains to be seen but the anti-gun propaganda will be relentless.
