National Rifle Association (NRA) pundit Antonia Okafor explained to Fox News how she enjoys people coming together after mass shootings (which includes burying the dead, treating the wounded, and issuing “thoughts and prayers” to heartbroken family members).
Okafor also told Fox News host Heather Childers that Democrats are “the problem” for bringing up gun safety laws following every mass shooting:
We have Baltimore, we have Chicago, we have St. Louis, we have all these places that are ridden with violence. And we’ve implemented more and more gun control as the years have gone on. So, the policy is not working.
Dahleen Glanton, a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, notes: “Chicago does not have the strictest gun laws in the country. It’s time for gun lovers to stop spreading that lie.”
Okafor went on to explain her joy after mass shootings:
One thing I love about — unfortunately — these tragedies that happen, the reaction from the American people coming together. And one thing I think we’re very good at is problem solving. And so I believe if we’re willing to change the direction that we’ve been in before… you know, we voted for President Trump because we wanted a difference.
Okafor called for Americans to listen to President Donald Trump’s upcoming, future unknown advice regarding mass shootings:
I think it’s important that if we listen to our president, if we listen to the leadership and the advice that he has in the future going on forward that we can actually make change in this horrible circumstance so that this doesn’t happen in the future.
