The gun control nuts are at it again – talking heads and politicians calling for tighter gun laws. And the left is once again spearheading the effort with Obama’s “political” speech and Hillary’s efforts to close gun sale loopholes – as if there are any loopholes left to close.
Hillary also says she wants to repeal the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,” which protects gun dealers and manufacturers from prosecution (or should I say persecution) should one of their weapons be used for nefarious purposes.
Can you imagine the feeding frenzy of the Democrat slip and fall trial lawyers on the gun industry if that were repealed. It would be carnage and the end of most gun manufacturers.
Our society today has been so neutered, so conditioned, that instead of people taking it upon themselves to protect their schools, we look to our nanny government for answers.
Will we ever figure out that our government, as always, is once again the cause of the problem? Never mind suing the gun manufacturers – we should be able to sue the government for facilitating this problem – for setting up “gun free zones.” Still, everyone looks to our great leaders for guidance as to how to solve this “epidemic,” because that’s what sheep do.
But what about the actual victims? Why not ask them what may have helped, instead of our ivory tower pampered politicians with their well armed security details. I find it ironic that when a candidate or politician goes to a school for a function or a speech, the school ceases to be a “gun free zone,” yet somehow that’s not a problem.
