BELLEVUE, WA –-(Ammoland.com)- Seemingly before the Navy shooting was over, the Obama Administration along with anti-gun giants Dianne Feinstein and Bloomberg were calling for a new gun control push.
These anti-gunners were trying to brainwash Americans soon after the shooting. They said the shooter used an AR-15 during the attack and extensive gun control is needed so this does not happen again. No surprise they did not get their facts right.
The last mass shooting that took place in Newtown, CT was followed by an exploitation of a tragedy when there was a massive push for gun control at every level. That wave of gun control was held off earlier in 2013. Now the Obama Administration and their anti-gun puppets are ready to exploit another tragedy. Most of them have already made public statements demanding more gun control. It is our job to make sure the public does not fall into their trap.
At least after the Newtown shooting the anti-gun crowd took their time to convince America that they cared about the victims. Not after the Navy yard shooting. In Obama’s first statement after the shooting:
“We’re gonna be investigating thoroughly what happened, as we do so many of these shootings, sadly, that have happened and do everything that we can to try and prevent them.”
Anti-gun queen Feinstein was a bit more blunt in her approach:
“This is one more event to add to the litany of massacres that occur when a deranged person or grievance killer is able to obtain multiple weapons – including a military-style assault rifle – and kill many people in a short amount of time. When will enough be enough? Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”
The shooter came armed with a double barrel shotgun like the one pictured to the right. He was found with an AR-15 and 2 pistols that he had taken from victims. The FBI said they do not believe the shooter used an AR-15 at all.
No gun control bill would have stopped this; no gun control bill would ban a double barrel shotgun tailor-made for hunting. As you can see in the picture, double barrel shotgun simply means it can only hold 2 rounds at a time. Many countries with strict gun control laws do not even ban basic hunting shotguns.
This is the type of brainwashing the anti-gunners like to use. They make you believe a normal every day citizen walked into a gun shop and purchased a devastating assault weapon legally with no trouble. One way this shooting may have been prevented is if there were more strict mental health regulations surrounding firearm purchases.
USA Today reported that the shooter sought mental health help as soon as a month before the shooting. If he had been flagged as unstable when he sought mental health help, he could have been stopped from legally purchasing that shotgun.
We need to stop focusing on the firearm and start focusing on the insane person that pulls the trigger. Whether it is mass shootings or murders every day in Chicago, putting restrictions on our firearms will not stop criminals. The death penalty and life in prison has not stopped psychos from committing murder. Nearly 100% of the murders in Chicago are done by gang members using illegal guns. It is not Joe Smith going to the gun shop and purchasing a legal firearm to hunt, go to the range, or protect his home with.
We are about to be in the midst of a massive push for gun control at every level. This happens after every mass shooting. The anti-gunners see it as an opportunity to exploit a tragedy and to push their agenda.
We must collect as many resources as possible to be ready to defend your gun rights in the courts from anti-gun laws coast to coast. Earlier in 2013, Second Amendment patriots were able to bond together and defeat the massive wave of new gun control. We must do it again.
Thank you. I know I can count on you.

Another “Target Rich Environment” aka: Gun free zone is used by a wack-job, to vindicate his warped thought patterns. Now all the other gun owners must pay penance and be punished. I’m beginning to feel discriminated against.
I thought the offending firearm was identied as a Remington 870.
They are tying in what happened in Africa to gun control in our country. Never let anything go to waste.
Right on, Bill. People who are sick aren’t the problem. You don’t take away someone’s rights because they have the flu or chicken pox. Why should someone with a mental illness immediately lose his rights because he wanted to get help. There are exceptions, of course. Some sick folks (sick as in having an illness) are too far gone, and are harboring dangerous psychoses. But there’s already machinery in place to protect society from people with a sickness like that. It just doesn’t work well because our healthcare system itself is such a wreck.
Being flagged unstable for simply seeking help is why a lot of people aren’t going to. There has to be a middle ground and something we can do on this without destroying due process.
