“…basically the only way to guarantee that we would dramatically reduce acts of violence involving guns is to basically remove guns from society and until somebody gets enough oomph to repeal the Second Amendment, that’s not gonna happen.”
Karl Rove just helped conservatives out by proving there are no differences between republican and democratic progressives. They both think the same but use different methods of delivery and messaging. Maybe Rove made this suggestion knowing it’s what democrats want so he could then go into the issue of mental illness in which no one ever seems to want to talk about. He explains that there were plenty of warning signs leading up to the Charleston massacre that were overlooked. The Second Amendment should never ever be considered or have anyone suggesting it should be repealed; even when one is making an argument as Rove did here. (By the way you can be sure other sites will spin this that he is in fact calling for 2A repeal.)
The Second Amendment is clear “…shall not be infringed.” yet progressives are all calling for more laws even though many experts have said no law could have prevented this recent mass killing in Charleston, SC. The real problem with progressives is that they always go after guns and 2A instead of addressing mental health and violent criminals who are at the root of the majority mass killings.
DC has done nothing to address mental health issues. They have not been enforcing guns laws already on the books to deal with violent criminals either. I think Bill O’Reilly might be onto something calling for a new federal law:
“If a person is caught with a gun in any crime at all, it automatically becomes a federal beef. If convicted, the criminal gets a mandatory ten years in federal prison.”
This is something many could get on board with but problem number one means more big govt and number two Bill O also wants a national gun registry. That isn’t going happen, gun owners as well as the NRA and other pro-gun groups will fight it all the way to the Supreme Court.
We will always have sick people and violent criminal among us. If they want to kill they will find a way to do it no matter how many laws are created. But disarming people is not the answer to stop these acts of violence. Criminals by their very nature don’t follow laws so more gun laws are not the answer. Almost all mass killings and shootings take place in gun free zones or states/ cities with very strict gun laws. States that allow open carry or make obtaining concealed weapons permit reasonable do not have these problems. How about we stop infringing on peoples right to defend themselves?!
