That “F” Has Got to Go!

In hindsight of the Parkland shooting tragedy we need to examine its aftermath and ask ourselves what are we seeing and why. We see students marching to ban assault weapons that they believe are to blame. They also believe that these guns only exist because of ‘NRA Blood Money’.

The adults are legislating to remove the right of any 18 year old to own a semiautomatic rifle and to ban types of these guns for everyone.

Looking at the graphs below (Figure 12 and 13) it becomes apparent that an armed resource officer that responds (not hiding behind a tree like the Florida school shooting) cuts the casualty count in half as compared to when the police arrive.

Explaining Irreconcilable Worldviews Between Pro-Gun and Anti-Gun Activists

This came across my desk and it is a good explanation of why the anti-gun people are hampered by their own collectivist ideology. By W.F.
