U.S. must act on gun control now

U.S. must act on gun control now

At least a dozen of the Las Vegas shooter's weapons were outfitted with bump stocks. "We don't believe that bans have ever worked on anything", he said. They should ensure that there is clear language in the bill to prevent the ATF from reclassifying semiautomatic weapons as machine guns so that it does not become a backdoor effort to ban now lawful weapons. An analysis by the data-journalism outfit FiveThirtyEight found that in the last four years, there were 90 mass shootings in the U.S. According to CNN, there have been 273 mass shootings - where four or more people were injured or killed - in the United States since the beginning of 2017 alone.

Surely there must be something we can do. But when our forefathers were constructing the second amendment, they certainly did not have bump stocks in mind, given the fact that they've only been around for about a decade and only made legal since 2010 when the ATF and Obama administration made them so. We have to talk about it now so that we don't have more families dealing with the lives of loved ones being cut short. The ginned-up outrage over Wayne LaPierre's "good guy with a gun" remarks after Sandy Hook lasted for weeks but now, because of the NRA's pre-emptive move and the lecherous actions of a big-time Hollywood producer and Democrat donor, the news cycle is moving away from gun control on to other things. An amendment to a 1996 spending bill, the Dickey Amendment, makes it almost impossible for the CDC to research the matter without risking its own funding. Criminals and the mentally sick will get guns no matter what the laws say.

Or how about we close the gun show loophole?

If signed, the bill would require background checks for employees of gun dealers, require surveillance outside gun stores, and mandate training for employees to identify straw purchasers. "It's an interpretive issue and they need to get the job done".

The federal government, with all its billions and billions of dollars, can surely be bothered to make sure all gun sales are met with a background check?

He added, "Since they don't change the function of the firearm it is still a semi-automatic, one bullet with one press of the trigger, there would be no reason to have them outlawed". What's the tangible difference? What we need is sensible legislation that can help prevent gun deaths. The NRA wants easy access to weaponry of any kind and they're not about to care about this tragedy when they can continue to profit off of it. What use are all those gun controls there?

The pseudo-late-night comedians, with nothing else to bray about, are now fixated on guns, which are associated with country music by the condescending elites who portray anyone who owns guns as trigger-happy NRA members. If that person is dead set on killing one or one thousand people, they will do it and find a way to do it no matter how many laws you put in place to attempt to stop them. The power of the boycott, if wielded correctly, can be a powerful one.
