If someone has decided to kill a lot of people at once, the means available to him are many, but what does not make sense is disarming the law-abiding as a response to terrorism.
As with firearms in particular, technology in general is neither good nor bad in itself. It’s up to the user to determine the moral character of the object.
I don’t accept the hopelessness found in claims that we can’t win over new people to the support of gun rights. If NRATV is to be replaced, and it needs to be, It should be a new inclusive vision
This is the lesson that many learned in elementary school that if you shout threats at a classmate, you don’t get to whine when he gives you a bloody nose.

Millions of American gun owners did not commit that atrocity, and lashing out at us will not prevent crimes in the future
I expect to see Democratic candidates fall over themselves to present the purest image of a gun control advocate, and I equally expect that nothing in it will have anything to do with actual safety.
A bill in the New York State Assembly seeks to make purchasing more than twenty (20) rounds of ammunition for “assault weapons” in a one hundred twenty day period a felony.
