McCabe on ‘Wilkow!’: The left will spin Santa Barbara shooting against gun rights

The Santa Barbara shooting is another sad example of the left exploiting tragedy to score political points.

Guns & Patriots editor Neil W. McCabe was a guest May 27 The Blaze TV???s ???Wilkow!??? program, hosted by Andrew Wilkow.

Watch the video here:

Show note: Progressives are once again using tragedy to call for more gun control. This time it has to do with 22-year-old Elliot Rodger. Rodger is alleged to have gone on a killing spree which left six people dead. This rampage unfolded Friday night when Rodger stabbed three people to death at his apartment and then went to a UC Santa Barbara sorority house and starting firing at three sorority sisters nearby, killing two and wounding another. California already has some of the toughest gun control laws in the country. Not to mention Rodger killed three people with a knife before he started shooting. Clearly, he was going to do something regardless of whether he had a gun.
