DNC Fundraises Off Mass Shootings In El Paso And Dayton

Peter Hasson on August 5, 2019

The Democratic National Committee is fundraising off of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that together left at least 31 people dead.

The DNC sent out a pair of fundraising emails from former Rep. Gabby Giffords, who was wounded in a 2011 shooting. Giffords’ emails directly invoked last weekend’s mass murders in asking for donations.

“I am asking you to have the courage to act today. For every man, woman, and child whose life has been cut short by the epidemic of gun violence in our country,” Giffords wrote in an email sent out Monday afternoon.

“Split a $10 donation between my organization dedicated to ending gun violence, Giffords PAC, and the Democratic National Committee today. Together, we have the power to prevent gun violence and save lives,” she urged recipients.

The second email, sent out later Monday afternoon, was similarly worded.

The DNC, which did not return an email seeking comment, has used mass shootings to pump supporters for donations in the past. The committee repeatedly used 2018’s Parkland, Florida, school shooting to solicit donations.

The DNC fundraised off the shooting one day after it took place and later sent out fundraising blast a Parkland student signed. The DNC fundraised off of the shooting again on the one year anniversary of the tragedy.

  • i have a glock m9, i just put it on the table, fully loaded and ordered it to go out and shoot someone, anyone. guess what, it is still sitting in same spot on same table for last 24 hours. so, what does that tell you. guns are not the killers.

  • I'm sorry about Gifford getting shot ....but here's the reality ....if her bodyguard didn't have a gun she would have been killed ....leave are LEGAL right to defend ourselves alone.

  • Shooting will continue if other people with guns couldn't kill the person who was committing the crime.

  • Giffords was shot by a known paranoid schizophreniac. Sandy Hook was done by a troubled kid when his mother was going to commit him to an institution. Parkland was done by a troubled kid whose home the police had been to 40 time. Both the local police and the FBI did nothing. El Paso was done by an a kid whose warning signs were ignored. hate list. rape lists. Social media posts. This is the problem. Not the weapons! MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES! The liberal Democrats will NEVER admit this.
