Do you want to see the President of the United State claim he isn’t targeting law abiding gun owners, but then do exactly that?
Do you want hear him use the “Do something.” excuse and then claim nothing was done when states enacted all kinds of rules, like the S.A.F.E Act, that didn’t work?
Do you want to hear the President wax poetic about an assault weapon ban that will stop mass shootings, like in California where it hasn’t stopped mass shootings?
Do you want to hear him claim that there have always been limitations on weapons and then drag out the National Firearms Act? Because 1791 and 1934 are pretty much the same year obviously. Also that just taxed machine guns to get gangsters for tax evasion, not exactly the hallmark of safety legislation.
“We regulated machine guns 90 years ago and its still a free county.” – Joe making something he believes is a point, I guess. Not commenting on the fact Machine Guns didn’t become new production illegal until 1986, just taxed. Or that the posterchild school mass shooting, Columbine, happened during the Assault Weapon Ban he wants back.
“This isn’t about taking away anyone’s rights, its about protecting children.”
Okay, then do that. Put physical security experts on the ground at schools and cut them a check to make upgrades. Put them in contact with the local LEs to see what the problematic regional concerns are. Build out a plan.
You cannot be free of the consequences of another’s actions. It is literally impossible. So no, we do not have that “freedom” because it isn’t a freedom. It may be a reasonable expectation in society, and it is. But it isn’t a right. Freedom from consequence is not a right. The right to “feel safe” is not a right. It cannot be secured by the actions or restraint of governments.
“Guns are the number one killer of children.” Nope. Accidental injury is. Rolling in the teens to age 17, 19, or even 21 into “children” and both homicide and suicide rates shift that rate. But the motivations and free agency of an 8 year old and 18 year old are entirely different.
But use kids as your political prop I guess, not like decency and honesty has stopped you before…
More “school age kids” died from guns than police or military combined, he states next. Hmm. Where Joe? Where? In school? What where these school age kids doing when they died? Who killed them? Bet most of those deaths were in the 15+ age range and tied to criminal activities instead of a more “school” related event, am I right?
Go ahead, Joe. Keep oversimplifying and misidentifying the problem with politically charged information bracketing that has nothing to do with motive. I’m sure that’ll work this time since it has literally never worked.
