Another law won’t solve anything


— Pretty straight forward, but because of the common sense aspect of it, some people don’t pay attention.

A person steals a gun (which is against the law); shoots and kills his own mother (which is against the law); transports these guns loaded (which is against the law); breaks into the school (which is against the law); discharges the weapons within city limits (which is against the law); murders 26 people (which is against the law); and commits suicide (which is against the law).

Many people in this country somehow think passing another law banning guns would protect us from someone like this. If you haven’t noticed, people like this are not concerned about breaking laws — they only care about fulfilling their own twisted agenda. The only people who a gun ban would impact are law-abiding citizens as it would only serve to cripple our ability to protect ourselves.
