With the horrific news out of Texas yesterday, the liberals are of course screaming for “common sense gun control,” which of course we already have.
First, some spot-on humor produced by our friends at Black Rifle Coffee back in January. Buy their coffee. Good stuff, Maynard. Then we’ll get to the discussion after the video.
- The shooter was dishonorably discharged from the Air Force based on a domestic violence conviction. This is grounds for losing his gun rights.
- Simple possession of that gun was illegal, even if he had legally obtained it prior to his conviction and discharge.
- If he purchased it after his conviction and discharge, he perjured himself on the background check application.
- A neighbor of the church with a lawfully possessed firearm shot and injured the shooter as he attempted to flee, eventually resulting in a crash and the shooter’s death.
What the left screaming for gun control never wants to acknowledge is that the overwhelming majority of gun violence committed in this country is by individuals who are already outlawed from owning or possessing guns, and those guns are most likely stolen.
Every tweet from the left about “it’s not too soon to debate gun control,” which of course is not really an invitation to debate, should be met with a requirement to watch a full episode of Live PD. Criminals with stolen guns committing more crimes.
If you disarm the law-abiding public, all that will remain really will be the inmates running the asylum.
