The impulsive and irrational push from the left to create yet one more law, regulation or ordinance to magically prevent violent deaths at the hands of humans is ill-thought and freedom-robbing. I have bad news for them – laws haven’t prevented murders .. ever.
Most recently a crazed white dude went into a church with a gun and killed 9 people. There were laws in place to stop this – but why didn’t they?
South Carolina already has a law prohibiting the possession of a firearm in a church unless specifically allowed by the leading church authority. They made their gun-safe zone reaaallly gun safe.
Assault, carrying concealed without a permit and finally, murder are already illegal.
Certainly the tragedy in Charleston is saddening, but adding one more law to murder, asssault, concealed carry and guns in churches .. what good would it do?
At some point, perhaps they will start looking at the pharmacological or mental health angle of the whole thing. Or maybe … South Carolina will consider letting its church members carry.
The gun won’t be convicted of anything. Because, on its own, its incapable of doing much of anything other than gaining or losing value.
If guilty, Dylann Storm Roof will take whatever punishment the courts inflict. Why? Because the gun didn’t intentionally do anything. It served its master. A master bent on the death of a prayer group in South Carolina. The master has a price to pay.
Those desiring a more socialist, communist or otherwise progressive America will tell the story differently. That somehow, without the gun, no tragedy would have occurred or that in other countries multiple murders don’t happen. They lie.
In China, 29 died by knife wounds. In North Carolina, a psycho ran over people with an SUV. There are so many more incidents where a group of people died without a gun involved. Oddly, it seems that mass murderers will kill with whatever weapon is available to them. Gun, sword, knife, car, truck .. baseball bat.
Without facts, Constitutional conservatives don’t stand a chance. With facts, no one else has any chance at all.
