The thing is, I'm not surprised.
Even if I could wave a magic wand, I would not get rid of the whole lot.
I hardly believe that Moulton had some infinite wisdom into the motives and means that fed this tragedy, yet he instantly jumped to "gun control" and refused to pay the respects due those who lost their lives in Las Vegas. This followed too many massacres perpetrated recently by US citizens in the United States.
When will enough be enough?
As over 90% of gun violence is committed by men, in order for a man to purchase a gun, he must first get a waiver from his current wife, plus his most recent ex-wife, or any woman with whom he is now in a relationship (if he's gay, he must get the waiver from his male spouse/partner). Expansive interpretations of the right to bear arms will be the law of the land - until the "right" itself ceases to be. It was written into the U.S. Constitution by the Founding Fathers. The gun lobby is strong, I know, but why are automatic weapons available? "No one should be able to easily and cheaply modify legal weapons into what are essentially machine guns".
This idea that the Founding Fathers were able to accurately judge how unsafe unabridged access to guns would be in the 21st century is ludicrous.
The words of this amendment, however unclear they may read today, are under constant defense and scrutiny by all facets of the public in this country.
The biggest and most important issue I have with the Second Amendment is that regulations against it don't exist. We've never repealed a part of the Bill of Rights.
"Conservatives have this idea", he added, "that the only right that guarantees our freedom is the Second Amendment". United States determined that the First Amendment, while prohibiting the government from limiting freedom of speech, did not provide protection for risky speech. It is called the First Amendment. My statements would be threatening. The court held that the "Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home". Nothing. Instead, countless more families grieve for lives lost. The only reason to fire so many rounds so fast is to kill large numbers of people.
The gun culture in America is also central to law enforcement.
Unless you're a certifiable gun collector, shouldn't that wave a red flag that just might warrant an occasional knock on the door from the feds?
In Las Vegas, several guns were used to cause 59 deaths and injure more than 500, shot from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel by a man who owned more than 40 weapons.
There were almost twice as many suicides involving firearms in 2015 as there were murders caused by guns, and the rate has been increasing in recent years. If we're talking about automatic weapons, those are virtually impossible to obtain-although there are attachments that enable semiautomatics to function like automatics, which is what might have happened in Las Vegas. It's insane to make it so easy for someone to acquire all this weaponry - whether the person is sane or not. Well, I hate to break it to you, but "thoughts and prayers" simply aren't cutting it!
