Why Do They Do It?
In Michigan, a man randomly walked around in several parking lots, shooting and killing people he didn't know. Six, maybe seven people dead because of—what? All mass shootings are not Muslim-inspired, and this one probably isn't, either. But what motivated this fool to go around killing indiscriminately? Nobody knows, and probably never will, for sure. But what is common to ALL mass shootings, in schools, churches, or parking lots? Answer: a gun. But in most mass shootings, the gun was not bought legally. And since most mass shooters are not necessarily repeat offenders, no amount of laws DISARMING law-abiding people will stop them from getting guns.
They will only inspire them. Many have nothing yet in their backgrounds to stop the purchase. And after they perform a mass shooting, it's too late, with ALL the possible defenders DISARMED by law by fools who still think the way to self defense is to make yourself defenseless. The answer is as obvious as the nose on the faces of lawmakers: allow ALL people to be legally armed. 3 out of 4 people ARE illegally armed, anyway. So why not allow law-abiding people the arms needed to defend themselves, and others? But our fool politicians are too damned stupid to realize this. They think if we have guns in our pockets, WE will go around shooting people at random. One recently said that ALL gun owners are willing to become lawbreakers. Why do we keep electing such fools?
