And what exactly do we think any of these executive orders are going to do to reduce the shootings?
They may sound good to some people, but are they really effective?
Like an assault weapons ban – didn’t work from ‘94-’04 per the government’s own data. But we’ll rehash it because it gets the left all in a dither.
Here’s the concept. Many of us firearms owners have no problem with “common sense” “gun control” measures…….The issue is that many of the ideas from the left don’t really accomplish a freaking thing.
Firearms are the tools used to cause so much pain and destruction…….but there are two main underlying issues that our society and government and politicians don’t ever seem to address.
2) mental illness
Work on those two issues in positive, meaningful ways and so much is fixed in our society – and not just in regards to firearms related deaths either.
But it’s easier to malign firearms and those of us that own them as ammosexuals and wanting to beat off with our AR or shotgun or pistol than it is to actually try to fix the underlying issue.
Sort of like painting a car but not fixing the rotting frame and body panels.
