To no surprise, anti-gun fanatics instantly took to every form of media possible to call for more and stricter gun control after a Sanders’ supporter shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), House Majority Whip. The topic of gun control became an instant political hot-potato. One Congressman, Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) told the media that the shooting was directed at Trump supporters and that from this day on, he will carry his gun in his pocket.
The shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise and four others at a baseball practice for Republican members of Congress on Wednesday morning in Alexandria, Virginia, was always going to quickly turn to politics.
Rep. Chris Collins, one of President Donald Trump’s most prominent congressional supporters, insisted that the shooting was directly tied to anti-Trump rhetoric from the left. “I can only hope that the Democrats do tone down the rhetoric,” Collins said on a local radio station in upstate New York. “The rhetoric has been outrageous — the finger-pointing, just the tone and the angst and the anger directed at Donald Trump, his supporters. Really, then, you know, some people react to things like that. They get angry as well. And then you fuel the fires.”
Collins also said in the same interview he would have his gun “in my pocket from this day forward.” …
If more law-abiding citizens carried a gun with them at all times, there would be far fewer shootings and less violent crime. Notice that most mass or public shootings take place in gun free zones or in cities with strict gun control laws already in place that make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to be armed and ready to defend themselves and others. The solution to violence and shootings is to arm the people!
