Left-wing liberals have been blaming the NRA and Republicans for allowing the mass shooting in Las Vegas that left over 50 dead and 500 injured. They are blaming the GOP and NRA for not passing enough gun control laws that could have prevented the mass shooting.
However, it needs to be pointed out that Stephen Paddock purchased all of his guns and ammunition legally.
Secondly, the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is a gun-free zone, but as in so many other gun-free zones, that only applies to law abiding citizens, not criminals, crazies, whackos and terrorists.
Third, and MOST IMPORTANT is that the Obama administration on at least two occasions approved the sale of bump-fire stocks. It wasn’t Republicans or the NRA, but Obama’s crooked ATF – the same folks who ran the illegal Operation Fast and Furious.
The National Rifle Association has broken its silence four days after the deadliest mass shooting in recent US history to call for “additional regulations” on bump fire stocks, the device the Las Vegas shooter used to turn his semi-automatic rifles into rapid-fire weapons.
But alongside the rare concession from the influential pro-gun group, the NRA also suggested it was time for further relaxation of laws permitting Americans to carry concealed firearms.
“The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations,” Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox, the group’s two leading figures, said in a joint statement…
If liberals want to point a finger for the legal purchase of bump-fire stocks, they need to look at themselves first. Secondly, NRA President Wayne La Pierre has publicly stated that the NRA dies favor some kind of regulations on the sale and ownership of bump-fire stocks.
