The shooting in Las Vegas has had a huge impact on everyone involved. There seems to be a lot of unanswered questions as far as the actual shooter goes. Thousands of people’s lives all changed forever just because of one stupid and horrible decision from a man that seemed to have an agenda. For those that are trying to make this seem like a drop of a hat decision, that is not the case. This was obviously premeditated.
And now, as we all could have expected, liberals from all over the country are complaining about gun laws once again. There is a problem with what they are trying to say. This shooting would have happened regardless of whether of not guns were illegal. That is because criminals do not care about the law. They will find a way to kill people.
That is why it was so shocking to see a top Republican start talking about gun laws in the Senate. Lindsey Graham, who has been one of the Senators that is very hard on President Trump, has come out with a statement on gun control.
He started talking about bump stocks.
“I’m not an expert on bump stocks, but all things that make America safer and don’t infringe on the Second Amendment, count me in,” Graham said.
Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows even talked about the issue.
“I own probably more guns than most members of Congress and that was the first time I’d ever heard of a bump stock,” he said. “There is a prohibition against automatic weapons…anything that would try to make it an automatic weapon would need greater scrutiny, let’s put it that way.”
This cannot infringe on our Second Amendment rights. There is no excuse for Democrats trying to pass a bill only days after 59 people lost their lives. Let these families reflect before they are used as an example. Maybe the gun laws should be looked at, but now is not the time. We need to let these families try to heal first.
What do you think about these Republicans trying to push for new gun laws?
