BFA Thoughts on the Las Vegas Mass Murders

USA -(Ammoland.com)- After the cowardly attack on innocent concert goers in Las Vegas, the media started asking us to comment. And all the usual anti-gun suspects started calling for stricter gun control laws before the spent shells were cold.

Buckeye Firearms Association mourns the senseless slaughter and our hearts go out to the families of survivors. However, unlike the anti-gun zealots who can't even take a one-day break from politics, we prefer to form opinions based on facts. So we'll withhold comment until we know a lot more about what really happened.

What we DO know is that when these events occur, the early reporting is often deeply flawed. And what appears to be true in the first hours can turn out to be entirely untrue days or weeks later. We also know that the gun laws pushed by gun control advocates will not stop these events.

So let's all take a deep breath. Let's allow the authorities to complete their investigation. Then, when all the facts are in, we'll take a cold, hard look at this horrific event.

But my guess is that while we'll study this event for years, and actually learn from it, the media and the gun grabbers will have already moved on to their next fact free rant.

Yours for Freedom

Dean Rieck
Executive Director

My estimate is that no more than about 10+ people would have been shot before the counter sniper caused the sniper to back off or even shot him dead. This is… Read more »

I now call this media and politician reaction to tragic events:

“Dancing in the blood of the victims”…

Nothing to see here, please move on…

Several years ago now, the CDC opined that none of the gun control laws so far enacted had had any effect on violence committed with guns. NONE!

I agree that early reporting on these events is often flawed, unfortunately these erroneous “facts” are what many people take away as truth. My heart aches for the victims, their families and friends, and the people of Las Vegas. As a retired Law Enforcement officer my thoughts and prayers also go out to my brothers and sisters in uniform, all the other first responders, and the doctors and nurses and other medical personnel, too. These dedicated professionals are often forgotten in these terrible situations and they are hurting, too and need are caring and support. May God bless all who’ve… Read more »
