It's Not "Gun" Control They Want

This list about the Maryland school shooting has been making the rounds of social media, and it gets right to the heart of the matter.
  • What didn’t stop the Maryland school shooting
    • Maryland’s assault weapon ban
    • Maryland’s 10-round magazine limit
    • Maryland’s universal background check requirement
    • Maryland’s law requiring an extensive application process to obtain a permit to purchase a handgun
    • Maryland’s law prohibiting purchase of more than one firearm a month
    • Maryland’s law requiring handgun registration
    • Maryland’s law requiring licensing of handgun owners
    • Maryland’s extremely limited approval of conceal carry permits
    • Maryland’s refusal to honor any concealed carry permit from another state
    • Federal law prohibiting handgun possession for people under 21
    • Laws against carrying without a permit
    • Gun free school zones
    • Laws against discharging a firearm in public
    • Laws against attempted murder
  • What did stop the Maryland school shooting
    • An armed person at the scene who engaged the shooter in less than a minute

The "do something" laws and restrictions around gun ownership that the left has been crying for are already in place. Honest and intelligent people know these laws do nothing to stop evil people from committing acts of violence. Regulations and processes that could actually serve to keep people safe are routinely ignored by those charged with enforcing them. Our leftist antagonists have but one goal with their calls for "gun control." They are not interested in the safety of children, children are mere pawns to them, a means to an end. Their motive is a compliant, defenseless and submissive citizenry.

The despicable people pushing for "gun control" are in my opinion, no different than the tyrants throughout history who cruelly clamped down on the freedom and lives of others. Whether willful participants or useful idiots, they should be met with utter disdain and contempt. They've already proven how they feel about us.

The violence in Maryland will soon fade from the headlines. Unlike the Parkland, Florida mass killing, the outcome in this case doesn't fit the agenda. The leftist narrative must be maintained, facts be damned.

  1. Absolutely. The nut cases (if that's what they are, and not just homicidal maniacs) ignore the 25,000 existing gun laws. But THIS time, they'll obey the NEW one. Sure they will.

    1. I typically have a simple two word response for gun grabbers. But this blog is generally PG rated.

      Cheers!
