I have to weigh in on this tragic event. I’m getting tired of seeing everyone post things on social media about “more gun laws”, “senators have to do something”. What the hell do you want them to do? Seriously.
If people would actually look at statistics, instead of sharing memes about gun laws, you’d actually see that guns laws work as long as people follow the laws, lol. Think about that for a minute:
LAWS: a rule of conduct or action prescribed or formally recognized as binding or enforced by a controlling authority or formally recognized as binding or enforced by a controlling authorityMerriam-Webster
See, a law is only effective if people follow them. So if someone wants to do something, regardless if there is a law or not, they are going to do it. Hell, look at marijuana. People need to understand, if a criminal wants to get into your home, it does not matter how much security you may have, they will get in, it don’t matter if there is a law about breaking and entering.
Are there not laws about speeding, yet everyday people speed to get to work or to wherever and die. Do you think more legislation would prevent that? There are lots of deaths per year by speeding motorists,
Speeding was a factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities in 2020, killing 11,258, or an average of over 30 people per day. The total number of fatal motor-vehicle crashes attributable to speeding was 10,136.NSC
There are some tough laws on drugs, yet everyday people are selling/buying/using drugs. People are dying left and right from overdosing, how are those laws helping?
The Robb Elementary Shooter (Salvador Ramos) purchased his guns LEGALLY! He did not get his guns off the street, he did exactly what your senators put into law. So in essence, he was a law abiding citizen when it came to gun ownership. Did that stop this law abiding citizen from shooting p a school? Hell no it didn’t. His mental instability caused him to walk into that school and start shooting.
Why are we not enacting more mental health laws. The gun wouldn’t have killed these people of there wasn’t a person on the other end pulling the trigger.
More laws and trying to take guns out of the hands of all people because of one incident is like punching your mother because your cousin punched his dog, it just does not make sense.
This country is so fucked up on it’s priorities
