Yesterday morning it was reported that a shooting took place at a school in Sparks, Nevada. Math teacher Michael Landsberry – who attempted to stop the shooting – was killed, while two 12-year-old male students were wounded but are reported to be in stable condition. It is still very early in the investigation yet the anti-gun left has already ceased on the opportunity fuel up another push towards increased gun control measures.
At least one gun control group is already calling for “common sense solutions”. The comment sections of various news sites have started to fill with outrage from liberals who are upset about everything gun related, most notably referencing the NRA’s opposition to background checks on gun purchases earlier this year. But as usual, the left was quick to rattle off their grievances and talking points before the facts really came forth and now, despite the facts they will continue.
As the day unfolded, we found out that the shooting took place at the hands of a 14 year old gunman. Does it matter to anyone that the shooter, being 14, was not legally permitted to purchase a gun? Or that since he wasn’t legally old enough to obtain a gun, it would have been absolutely impossible for a background check to prevent this terrible situation?
To the anti-gun left, none of this matters. In their minds, guns are bad. Period, the end.
