We can all see by now the child like tantrums and absurd behavior arriving at ever corner from Democrats.
Democrats have been constantly using every single type of disaster or crime to push their crazy political agenda. Now, with the mass shooting that just happened this Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, we can see it the most. Liberals are starting to push more and more towers harsher gun control laws. But do you really think this is the answer? Do you really think harsher gun control laws will bring a stop to the constant mass shootings that keep taking place in our nation?
Democrats seem to barely know what they are talking about half the time, especially when it comes to guns. We have seen liberals refer to AR-15 rifles as “assault rifles.” That should tell you all you need to know… Then to top it off, they make constant demands that assault rifles need to be made illegal. Wake up! AR-15’s are not assault rifles, and they are already illegal. Do your research.
Republican Representative Trey Gowdy is usually the voice of reason when it comes to matters such as this one. He made an appearance on Fox News in order to talk about the most recent mass shooting in our country. He was asked whether he thought more gun control laws would solve the issue of mass shootings.
Gowdy’s answer was epic. He expressed his sympathy for the students who had to go through such a horrific incident and explained that he would be thrilled to pass laws that might actually fix the problem and prevent future shootings, but he went on to explained that this is the big issue. There is no law that will stop a potential mass shooter from killing. Gun control won’t stop a madman from killing people. Yelling about gun control isn’t going to do anything, and it’s about time that the left stops and realizes this.
The Daily Caller reported that Gowdy stated on the air, “I don’t know anyone who would not pass a law today to prevent the next mass shooting, but to Sen. Rubio’s point, you gotta find out how he accessed the gun, we have to find out whether there was a data point in his background where someone could have reported it, whether or not he accessed the gun legally or illegally.”
He went on to question if proposing more gun control laws would even stop a shooting. He asked, “Usually at about this time, we hear about the gun show loophole, fine, close the gun show loophole, but how many mass killings have resulted from guns purchased at gun shows?”
Gowdy finished off by declaring that if someone could present a law to him that would prevent another mass killing, he would fully support it. He stated, “If you can show me a law that will prevent the next mass killing, go ahead and sign me up for it.”
Gowdy is right. What kind of law stops people from being mentally ill? Is there any such law?
Gowdy also reminded Americans that the government should actually be prosecuting people who get their hands on guns illegally. This is something that former President Barack Obama and his Justice Department did a terrible job of keeping up with.
The issue that must be addressed in this case is not the issue of gun control. Mental health is what is really the biggest problem when it comes to mass killings. The FBI was made aware that Nikolas Cruz had mental issues and they did nothing to stop him. This is the bigger problem.
