Loss of loved ones during the Las Vegas Shooting has liberals calling for gun control while conservatives like Tony Burditus refuse to relinquish rights in the name of terrorism.
Denise Burditus was one of the 59 people who died in Las Vegas on Sunday night after a ‘mad’ man opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on to the un-suspecting crowd of over 22,000 people attending the 2017 Harvest Music Festival. Though hers and the others involved are absolutely tragic, her husband refuses to let this tragedy be a stepping stone for liberals to protest a need for increased gun control.
Tony Burditus and his wife, Denise, were attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival when Stephen Paddock opened fire from a 32nd floor hotel room above them. While attempting to flee from the rampage, Denise became one of 58 people who were murdered.
When asked about the shooting by Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Burditus said it was a tragedy, but he would not let his grief be used as a reason to give up his Second Amendment rights, according to BizPac Review.
“You lost your wife,” Hannity said. “What is the right thing for the country to do and how to handle it?”
“It was a tragedy, Sunday night,” the grieving husband replied. “I still will never give up my rights.”
Burditus, a former U.S. Army Green Beret, and his wife had been married for 32 years. The couple were residing in West Virginia, according to a GoFundMe page set up in her memory. The high school sweethearts raised two kids and had four grandchildren, with a fifth on the way.
One should never let tragedy and fear stand in the way of what is rightfully deserved no matter how hard the situation might be. Guns aren’t the problem, people are.
