The shooter who attacked a Texas high school on Friday was not old enough to buy a gun and he stole legally owned firearms from his father.
He broke the law by possessing the gun and he broke the law by stealing the gun and he broke the law by killing people.
In other words, more gun laws would not have stopped this shooter.
But, that hasn’t stopped the liberal media from attacking Congress for not ‘acting’.
CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the left wing media have been clamoring for more gun laws for years now despite the fact that gun laws haven’t played a role in the shooting
On Sunday, one Democrat Senator finally admitted the truth.
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) said there was not “a single piece of legislation” that would have prevented the recent school shooting in Texas.
Warner said, “I don’t think there’s a single piece of legislation, but there’s a series of actions. Are there things we can do that would improve the safety of our schools? Absolutely.”
He continued, “Should there be more mental health counseling for troubled teens, the number of the incidents caused by young men time and time again? Absolutely. Making sure people are safer with their own firearms? Absolutely.”
Another gun law would not have prevented this shooting.
So what in the world do Democrats want Congress to do? Ban all guns? It’ll never happen.
Warner is right. There are things we can do to make schools safer and improve mental health screenings.
We don’t have to yell and scream at the NRA and we don’t have to make up lies about gun statistics.
Warner is definitely an ideologue and we can’t expect him to continue to say reasonable things like this but even a broken clock is right twice a day.
