Gun grabbers have wasted no time: "We must come together and do whatever it takes to protect our kids & communities from gun violence." — Jocelyn Benson (@JocelynBenson)
"Whatever it takes" to them means banning all the guns (even though the campus is already a "gun free zone") I do get that logic because you can't shoot a gun that isn't there. However no one is ever going to ban all the guns, and if they did then it would leave the law abiding defenseless while the criminals would be the only ones with guns.
What it would actually take is allowing carry, open or otherwise, on campus. Maybe more officer patrols would help, sure. I heard they hid just like they did in Uvalde.
I'm obviously not saying anything that everyone here doesn't already know. I'm just annoyed at the fact that they seem to be winning on their agenda. For better or worse the NRA did a bunch to free up and protect the gun rights we enjoy today. But they screwed up big time and lost the trust of many of their members including lifetime members. There are many other organizations that take less of a political stance and focus solely on the gun issue. I need to check into some of those more.
