Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- JPFO mourns with sorrow the senseless deaths at the tragic shooting in Aurora, CO.
We extend our condolences to the families and friends of the victims and pray for the recovery of the injured.
Unfortunately, the opponents and liberty will not hesitate to dance on the victims' graves while singing their tired songs of firearm bans and confiscations.
Already, the Brady Bunch has called this “yet another horrific reminder that guns enable mass killings.”
At JPFO, we take a more commonsensical, measured approach. Lunatic mass murderers will not be stopped by gun bans or confiscations; those with criminal intent will always find a way to access firearms. If we revoke freedoms and liberties in reaction to every tragedy, we will soon not only outlaw all guns, but also knives, screwdrivers, hammers, pipes, and eventually pens. But blaming the tools is just a small step better than blaming the victims. Instead, let's put the blame where it belongs: on the murderer.
At best, he should be given a life sentence with no chance of parole. But feel-good sophists — the same feel-good sophists who would confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens who want no more than to have a tool to defend their families — want us to ignore the criminal and blame the tool.
(We hope soon to have a follow-up article.)
Yours in Freedom, The Liberty Crew at JPFO
