Minnesota – -(Ammoland.com)- Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the victims of yesterday's shooting in Oregon.
In the wake of tragedies, we would always prefer that the victims and loved ones be able to mourn, heal, and console in peace, free from opportunists trying to capitalize on a tragedy.
Unfortunately, just moments after the shooting, before any facts of the incident had come to light, the anti-rights crowds were celebrating an opportunity to push their agenda.
In fact, the President of the United States said that this was indeed the time to politicize the problem.
The fact remains that none of their solutions would have prevented this incident, or any of the other incidents they have taken advantage of call for restrictions of your rights.
Blaming the tool is the easy way out.
We already know a few key facts about this tragedy:
The community college campus was a gun-free zone, where law-abiding citizens had to cower in the corner for nearly 20 minutes waiting on a good guy with a gun to arrive.
Oregon already has the sort of “universal background check” legislation in place that the anti-gunners believe would solve this problem.
Already, the politicians are proposing more gun control or “gun safety” measures that would not have impacted this incident in Oregon.
Even Rep. Norton, the new champion of gun control here in Minnesota, was on social media this morning touting the idea of a Gun Violence Restraining Order as a potential solution. Such a law would enable a judge to order your firearms seized at a hearing without you even being present to defend yourself.
