After church shooting, more prayers, more calls for more guns | Letters

After church shooting, more prayers, more calls for more guns | Letters”

That brings us back to this weekend's attack in Texas - which is the 377th mass shooting this year, by the way.

He also may have sent threatening text messages to his mother-in-law, who attended the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs. But let's not put the cart before the horse Donald - anyone who uses a gun for any goal, including taking a pot-shot at Bambi, is just exercising his God-given, 2nd-Amendment "rights".

During a press conference in Tokyo on Monday morning, the president declared that a man with a gun who killed 26 people "isn't a guns situation". That's not the case, however.

The disconnect between gun rights supporters and gun control advocates in this regard is absolutely vast. If these states' gun laws are so unsafe, why are there so few homicides in these states? It's a sharp break from his predecessor, who over his eight-year presidency assumed an increasingly frustrated tone at lawmakers' inability to approve meaningful gun control legislation.

The reality is that for most conservatives and most gun owners, these mass shootings don't move the needle on gun control because, for them, this isn't about guns.

"I researched the strictly tightened gun laws in Britain and Australia and concluded that they didn't prove much about what America's policy should be", Libresco wrote.

What happened yesterday in Sutherland Springs, however, wasn't just another mass shooting with a larger count of wounded and dead.

When every American must take a gun to church, will the NRA and gun manufacturers be satisfied?

The Sutherland Springs massacre has reignited the fierce and divisive debate on gun control in the U.S. and within hours of the shooting Democratic lawmakers renewed their pleas for measures to curtail the damage one gunman can inflict.

For supporters of gun rights, there is simply no tie between violence committed with guns and the availability of the guns themselves. Why not ban most knives to stop stabbings?

Many people joined Moulton in denouncing the NRA's tweet.

The headlines today are about a mass shooting, this time in Texas, the state where "mass" shootings first began when Charles Whitman went up to the top of the University of Texas tower and killed or wounded almost 50 people in 1966. It's not the gun, remember? When that's not feasible, certain individuals, ideally armed Americans, should act as volunteer security officers who can act as a last line of defense.

'The EU during the Obama administration had more casualties per capita than the whole of the United States over that period'. It's still unclear, however, whether his military court martial should have disqualified him from purchasing a weapon.

The mission of the Brady organization and its Million Mom March is to create a safer America by cutting gun deaths in half by 2025.

When it comes to stopping gun violence, a more responsible citizenry is the answer, not more government-imposed mandates.
