Once again, an apparent gun-hating liberal wants to blame the gun rather than the shooter. He blathers on about “assault weapons” being the problem.
My question is, what is an assault weapon? A spike-heeled shoe, a baseball bat, a rock, knife, pitchfork? All these have been used in assaults. An AR 15 is far from a machine gun or rocket launcher. It may “look” scary to a gun hater, but it fires a .22 bullet at the rate of 1 per trigger pull. They are great for target practice, and I hope I never have to use mine to protect myself from my government.
Armed guards in schools are a start, but the gun free laws need to be repealed, and concealed carry allowed for properly trained and vetted people, including teachers.
Since every mass shooting has occurred in a “gun free zone” it is obvious — even though the killers are crazy, they are not stupid! If there may be guns, they won’t go there!
What part of the Second Amendment do the gun haters not understand? “The right of the people to keep and BEAR arms shall not be infringed.”
Period! There is no “but”!
