What Might NRA Say About LAX Shooting With Semi-Automatic Rifle?

November 1, 2013

Yet another much-publicized senseless and needless shooting took place today in America.

Local police in Los Angles report the suspect was armed with a semi-automatic rifle.  CNN states the gunman approached a checkpoint at the terminal and opened fire.

These gun crimes are all just so absurd, and yet come next week when some other shooting occurs and we forget about this one today there will be just a continuation of shaking our heads.  The national psyche is being dulled to the continual slaughter.

But at the heart of matter is the fact gun manufactures, the NRA, and a failed political process has allowed for the carnage to continue.   For the most part Americans just are left feeling impotent as to how to address the gun problem in this nation.

Meanwhile there are many in the NRA who think the answer to gun violence is to have more ‘law-abiding’ citizens armed so to resist the ones intent on using the weapons for the very purpose they were designed.

As such the NRA might very well come out and say everyone at LAX should have had a semi-automatic rifle at the ready.

A core of national responsibility needs to form and flex our muscles and demand accountability from those we send to elective office.   This gun violence, and the ones who work to perpetuate it need to be reined in.
