Texas State Rifle Association on Connecticut School Shooting Tragedy

Houston, Tx –-(Ammoland.com)- The Officers, Staff and Directors of the Texas State Rifle Association grieve with the country and with the families who lost loved-ones in Connecticut.

The loss of anyone’s child at any age due to a criminal act is a heartfelt tragedy for us all.

This is a sad time and Americans are understandably seeking answers, as to why. However, to second-guess an ongoing criminal investigation by suggesting that additional gun laws or restrictions might have made a difference is not only a rush to judgment, but is irresponsible.

This association continues to stand behind efforts that serve to:

  • Recognize our inalienable right to self-protection,
  • Recognize the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and similar language in our state constitution which protects the rights of law abiding citizens,
  • Enforce existing gun laws and regulations,
  • Lock up those individuals who use guns as part of their criminal acts,
  • Ease firearm restrictions for the law abiding in many of the so-called “gun-free zones,”
  • Identify those judged through the courts to be mentally ineligible for firearm ownership.
