Sarah Sanders Says Mass Shootings Are More Of A 'Moral Issue,' Not A 'Gun Issue'

Fox News

Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is settling in well to her new correspondent job with one of President Donald Trump's preferred television networks, Fox News.

Sanders recently appeared on Fox News host Jeanine Pirro's show, where the former Press Secretary discussed gun violence.

It went...predictably.


Sanders, who routinely defended the separation of children from their parents at the border and admittedly lied about the perception of former FBI Director James Comey's reputation within the agency, said that gun violence is a uniquely American problem because we aren't moral enough.

"You know, when Congress comes back [from August Recess], there's going to be a lot of discussion about guns," Pirro said.

Sanders responded:

"I think the big part of the problem that we're missing and one of the things that we're not doing, is this is not as much a gun issue as it is a moral issue. We have to look for ways to bring this country together...It all goes back to having respect for one other and I think we need to have a step back and not make this a gun issue, but this is a heart issue."


Giphy

If Sanders's point is true, why is this so-called lack of morality exclusive to the United States, when other countries with fewer mass shootings still have video games, political division, pornography, secularism and virtually every other development attributed to moral decay?

Yet only America has mass shootings at near epidemic levels.

And if you're looking for why we have so little "respect for one another," look no further than her former boss's Twitter feed.

People were quick to point out the hypocrisy.






For the record, it's definitely a gun issue.



At least Fox is likely satisfied.

In July, a 21-year-old college student created a joking Facebook event inviting people to help him storm Area 51 to "see them aliens."

His logic was that if enough people stormed the Air Force base at once, authorities wouldn't be able to stop them all.

It's always a bummer when you're hungry and stuck somewhere you're not allowed to eat.

So when someone comes up with a solution, to eat undetected, does that make them a genius or a hero?

The internet agrees that the answer is "both".
