The fascist-communist liberals in America want to ban assault weapons. Jesuit Joe Biden called for tougher gun control laws after the Colorado shooting, despite Colorado already having universal background checks and red flag laws, and yet the shooter still got his hands on a gun.
The Colorado shooting is further proof that gun control laws don’t work and only make life more dangerous for law abiding citizens who are now defenseless and have no way to defend themselves.
If that grocery store had armed security or if somebody in the store was armed the shooting wouldn’t have resulted in 10 deaths.
An old saying that communist liberals hate is “a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun” and this statement was proven true in an attempted church shooting on December 29, 2020 when the shooter was instantly killed by two armed church members thus preventing the shooting from being a lot worse than it could have if nobody in the church was armed.
A study in the Foundation for Economic Education shows that assault weapons ban have no effect in stopping gun violence.
There are theoretical reasons to doubt the effectiveness of a ban or buyback of assault weapons, but it also doesn’t help that real-world evidence suggests these measures fail to produce reductions in gun violence.
Between 1994 and 2004, the federal government banned the manufacture, sale, or transfer of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines. A subsequent Department of Justice study found no evidence that the ban had had any effect on gun violence and stated that “should it be renewed, the ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.”
A recent study published this year in the Journal of General Internal Medicine examined state gun control policies and found no statistically significant relationship between assault weapon or large-capacity magazine bans and homicide rates. A Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) study came to the same conclusion.
Australia doesn’t prove gun control works
In 1996, Australia experienced a horrific mass shooting. In response, the government implemented a mandatory buyback scheme that banned and confiscated certain types of firearms, including assault weapons.
A 2016 JAMA study on the matter found no statistically significant change in the trend of the country’s firearm homicide rate following the law’s passage. The authors also noted that the decline in firearm suicides post-ban could not clearly be attributed to gun control since non-firearm suicides fell by an even greater magnitude.
The mass shootings with assault weapons are only constitute a fraction of mass shootings.
Two things are crystal clear.
- Gun control laws don’t work.
- Liberals and gun control activists don’t understand what “…shall not be infringed” means.
