Shooters, not guns, are the problem

Here we go again. Immediately after the tragic shooting in Las Vegas on Monday, Hillary Clinton, gun-control advocate, has renewed her assault on the Second Amendment and is attempting once again to blame the NRA.

Clinton believes that taking guns away from legal gun-owning, law-abiding Americans with more gun control measures will solve the problem. She doesn’t have the sense to realize that it’s not the guns, it’s the actions of the murderous thugs using them.

Later on Monday, Texas Congressman Henry Cuellar, a Democrat, said on a national news channel that taking guns away from everyone will not solve the problem.

After the shooting occurred in Dallas on July 7, 2016, Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, stated that the common denominator is not the weapon – but “the anarchy in the heart of the person committing the crime.”

Nothing is to be gained by taking legally owned guns away from law-abiding Americans because law-breakers will be the only ones with guns, and they do not care about the laws.
