The overwhelming evidence shows “good guys with a gun” don’t really exist—and gun tragedies are inescapable in a society so full of them, according to VICE .
In the weeks following the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida last winter, something remarkable happened: Florida lawmakers delivered a bill to Governor Rick Scott that raised the age of firearm purchases to 21 and increased funding for mental health services, among other changes. The bill, the “Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Safety Act,” marked the rare occasion when an episode of horrific gun violence resulted in direct and relatively speedy legislative action.
“Indeed, the list of ways Americans have come up with to hurt themselves using tools they think keep them safe is as disturbing as it is long. Parents let toddlers get ahold of firearms, and tragedy ensues. People shoot family members or roommates they mistake for intruders. And, perhaps most commonly, domestic disputes between partners escalate when guns—typically wielded by men—are in the household,” Krishna Andavolu at VICE wrote.
The serious lack of any firearm knowledge and the blatant anti-firearm and 2nd Amendment rhetoric from VICE is inline with the Democrats and left that continue to attack America’s freedoms and Amendments.
According to Krishna Andavolu, everyone who owns a firearm is a “bad guy” and only criminal behavior and violence can come from owning a firearm. Which means military and LEO and citizens are all “bad guys” and with their logic, we should have all been “Attacked” by firearms at least 72 times each. Vice does not provide any logic or intelligent comments in their argument on firearms.
What makes people so afraid of firearms? Why does a percentage of the population want to take what the other percentage has?
Anyone who believes firearms are bad and that there are no “good guys” with firearms, must believe that criminals will be nice to you as they carry out their criminal behavior and that if a bad guy has a gun, he will never use it so long as YOU do not have one either. The logic makes 0 sense and the over all stupidity of the logic is baffling.
The onslaught against our 2nd Amendment is stronger than ever before and the push to take firearms from citizens is a hurricane all in itself. I truly believe if they want to take your firearms so bad, they need to lace up and do it themselves.
