How Does Assault Weapon For Military Settings Get Into Hands Of Citizen On Streets Of America?
America woke up this Sunday morning to news that the deadliest mass shooting in America had taken place at an Orlando nightclub. As of this posting there are 50 dead and scores more injured with what are being reported as grievous wounds. The death toll is expected to increase.
The ease of obtaining guns in America linked up nicely for a terrorist who wished to do harm against–in this case–gay Americans. It is not as if we have not been warned that these two factors would connect and create great damage. It did in Orlando, and will do so again due to a lack of spine and spunk from our elected officials to make laws that have teeth and meaning to stop the outage. It will also happen again due to the timidity of the citizenry to stand up to the deadly harm perpetrated by the National Rifle Association.
There is no way to miss–again–the lead question to this massacre.
How does an assault weapon used for military settings make it into the hands of any citizen on the streets of America? It simply boggles the mind to the degree that this nation has allowed–yes ALLOWED–for the gun laws of this nation get so turned so upside down.
What is now allowed to happen makes as much sense as if one were to place new turf on the lawn and plant it grass side down. By not pushing back with fervor against the NRA and their limp dicked allies in the halls of power this nation has accepted the outcomes that are making for wall-to-wall coverage today on television.
We are only accepting that we will wake up to more days such as what is unfolding today by not demanding that large magazines for weapons be outlawed, or that a complete dismantling of sales at gun shows occur, or that strict laws governing private sales of weapons where background checks are a running joke is implemented.
Until the next time there is a mass killing by guns in America this is Caffeinated Politics asking for sanity.
