Multiple liberal news outlets use a false narrative of Washington Naval Yard shooter, Aaron Alexis, used an AR-15 in his attacks. Piers Morgan, the New York Daily News, and CNN, among a host of others having been playing up the AR-15 angle in an effort to revive their gun banning laws.
Reliable sources have reported that Alexis had a shotgun and two pistols. it is believed he brought the shotgun and removed the two pistols from his victims. The real question is how could someone with a long history of mental problems get access to such a secure area. That is the same question people mare asking about Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter.
In the political arena, the usual suspects came forward and have called for more gun laws. Leading the way is Diane Feinstein, D-CA.
I mourn those killed today at the Navy Yard in Washington and send my thoughts and prayers to those families grieving the loss of loved ones.
There are reports the killer was armed with an AR-15, a shotgun and a semiautomatic pistol when he stormed an American military installation in the nation’s capital and took at least 12 innocent lives.
This is one more event to add to the litany of massacres that occur when a deranged person or grievance killer is able to obtain multiple weapons—including a military-style assault rifle—and kill many people in a short amount of time.
When will enough be enough?
Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.
But many of Feinstein's detractors have questioned whether we need more gun laws or more enforcement of current gun laws. Neither Hasan or Alexis should mhave had guns in the first place, but getting illegal guns is not a hard thing to do. And the current administration has been remiss in prosecuting illegal gun cases.
This is just another case of liberal politicians and media jumping the gun and not waiting for the inconvenient facts to be known.
A recent Harvard study shows that more gun control doesn't make you safer, and in fact there is less gun violence where guns are readily available.
