Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- If you look at all the new gun ban laws, the anti-gun Democrats are proposing and applied them universally back, say ten years ago.
Not ONE mass shooting would have been prevented. Not ONE. Not one life would have been saved. Not ONE of these new laws would have stopped the shooting in Orlando, FL by a radical Islamist.
So for all the yelling and screaming, sit-in and filibusters it all comes down to one thing for Democrats. “Never let a good tragedy go to waste.”
As a gun owner, when I see people proposing laws because of a tragedy that would not have had any effect on that event, don’t you have to ask yourself why?
It’s like this. Let’s say a guy killed his mother so he could steal her car; then he drove the car into a school killing a bunch of little kids. The Democrat's solution here would be to pass a law that cars would have stronger breaks. You know to prevent further tragedies… you know, “for the children.”
The NRA would favor having someone shoot the driver of the car before he crashed the car into the school, thus saving all the children’s lives.
With 1,800,000 people on the terror watch list, and the fact the Orlando Shooter was TAKEN OFF THE LIST! I have to ask what do you have to do to get on the list and stay on the list?
How about something like:
- Telling your co-workers, you want to become a suicide bomber.
- Having a friend from your house of worship tell the FBI that you said you wanted to join ISIS.
- Travel to Saudi Arabia for unknown reasons, and someone else paid for the trip!
- THEN having a gun dealer report you to the FBI for suspicious activity.
All this was known to the FBI, and this guy was still not on the current list?
If you’re so dangerous that your more of a danger than the Orlando Shooter, and the Democrats argue you should be stripped you of your constitutional rights, why are you not in Jail?
It seems that the people in charge are not taking any of this seriously. Laws that strip citizens of their constitutional rights are useless when they do nothing to prevent shootings. When terrorist who confess their plans is then let loose to carry them out, who is to blame. Oh yeah, the NRA.
So look lefties. We are NOT going to let you strip us of our rights for laws that do NOTHING to prevent violence or shootings. We are not going to let you blame us for the failures of the FBI. Because let’s face facts, they screwed up on this one.
You know how the Orlando Shooter got off the terrorist list? He told the FBI his coworkers hated him because he was Muslim and that HE was the victim here. The FBI said “Wow… then we had better let you go, you poor harassed and wrongly accused individual” That is how he got off the list. Media and Democrats of-course now blame the NRA somehow for this.
So why do all this? Why push meaningless laws? Because Hillary is the 1st Democrat candidate for President, who has banning guns as part of her agenda. All of this is about helping her get elected. It is all Kabuki Theater. I’d say the Comedy Club, if the damage these anti-gun lefties are looking to do to our society were not so serious.
Renew or join the NRA, get involved. 120,000,000 gun owners must stand together, or we will lose our right to own a firearm.
