3…2…1 Gun Control Debate Rears It’s Ugly Head. Yesterday Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year old, began his shooting rampage outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in a suburban neighborhood shortly before dismissal time around 2:40 p.m.
He was armed with an AR-15 rifle. By the way, AR does not mean Assualt Rifle it stands for ArmaLite Rifle, after the company that developed it in the 1950s.
As of July 1, 2008, Florida became a “Take your gun to work” state (F.S. 790.251). This law prohibits most businesses from firing any employee for keeping a legal firearm locked in his or her vehicle in the company parking lot. The purpose of the new law is to allow citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights during their commutes to and from work. Exceptions listed in F.S. 790.251 include:
- school property;
- correctional institutions;
- upon which a facility that generates electricity by nuclear power is located;
- property upon which substantial activities involving national defense, aerospace, or homeland security are conducted;
- property upon which the primary business conducted is the manufacture, use, storage, or transportation of combustible or explosive materials;
- a motor vehicle owned/leased/rented by your employer;
- any other property upon which possession of a firearm is prohibited pursuant to any federal law, contract with a federal government entity, or general law of Florida.
3…2…1 Gun Control Debate Rears It’s Ugly Head
They should maybe think about changing this law. For schools anyway. The libtards claim that guns themselves are the problem. What!?!? How is the gun the problem? Did the gun go to the school and start shooting people all by its self? They always bring up that more regulations more gun control more, more, more laws. There is only one way to fix the problems of bad guys/gals marching into schools, hospitals, movie theaters, etc. is if there is a good guy/gal with a gun in these same places.
Some anti-gun advocates believe we own too many guns in America. So how many, are too many? Igor Volsky, a founder of Guns Down, a nascent group that is trying to stake out a bolder position on gun control. He says, “What I want to hear from them [politicans] is that we need fewer guns.” Speaking of the Las Vegas massacre that took place he says, “Nobody saw any red flags. Nobody thought anything was wrong with him,” Volsky said of Paddock. “It’s not enough to just limit the kind of people who own guns. You have to go after the guns themselves. Guns are the problem.”
Fools like this one are what lead to massacres. So in his theory, we take away all the guns and the murders stop? Good luck with that. If a person wants to murder someone it’s going to happen with a gun, knife, hammer, ax, vehicle, bombs, etc. and the millions of other things that are available.
Limiting the number of guns in America makes about as much sense as signs that read “Gun Free Zone.” Even if we made owning guns illegal in America would not stop a criminal from using one. Look how the drug law situation is…heroin, cocaine, etc, is ILLEGAL but it’s still here.
Volsky does not say Americans should have no guns, simply that they should have “fewer guns”, and that guns should be much harder to obtain. Certain kinds of guns, like military-style “assault weapons”, which were banned from 1994 to 2004, “should be banned entirely from the civilian market”, he wrote.
AR–15-style rifles are NOT “assault weapons” or “assault rifles.” An assault rifle is fully automatic — a machine gun. Automatic firearms have been severely restricted from civilian ownership since 1934.
