Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe didn’t wait long to inject his party’s gun confiscation agenda into the story of the attack by an armed Democratic activist on a group of Republican members of Congress at a baseball practice Wednesday morning.

At a news conference on the shooting in Alexandria, McAuliffe, with close ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, said: “We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence.”

Of course, if that were true, all of America would be wiped out in four days, I thought to myself.

Within minutes, McAuliffe repeated the bogus “statistic” about 93 million – even after being corrected by reporters.

“With 93 million people a day it’s just something,” McAuliffe said.

Asked again what he was talking about with the 93 million number, McAuliffe half-heartedly corrected himself: “93 individuals a day.”

Let me correct McAuliffe one more time – not to mention all the other politicians making similar claims that the problem is too many guns on the streets.

Too many guns in America is not the problem. The real problem is too many Democrats with killer instincts, seething with hatred and violence in their hearts.

That’s right.

It was a left-wing Democratic activist who tried to gun down Republican members of Congress and anyone else in the vicinity. It was a fervent Bernie Sanders fan. It was a supporter of Media Matters and the Southern Poverty Law Center, one whose other apostles tried to kill everyone at the Family Research Council a few years ago – with a gun! It was someone who watched and idolized Rachel Maddow who did this. It was a supporter.

That’s who perpetrated this shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, Wednesday morning. His name was James Hodgkinson. And he was your prototypical left-wing Democratic zealot, enflamed with hate against Donald Trump, Republicans and pretty much everyone who didn’t agree with him and Bernie.

Now here’s the curious thing: Why does someone who loves Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and all their ideas about grabbing guns own one? I can only guess that he just wants to confiscate guns from those who don’t agree with him, right? Just like he would be happy to snuff out the lives of those who disagree with him.

He’s part of an all-too familiar pattern of Democrat, “progressive,” left-wing haters who love to label those with whom they disagree as haters. But, in the end, the real haters demonstrate their hate and their madness with acts of reprehensible violence.

Isn’t that usually the case?
