The Texas Church Massacre was stopped by a "good man with a gun", after a "bad man with a gun" slaughtered 26. Who knows how many more would have died if nobody had been ready, willing and able to step up and shoot the crazy son-of-a-bitch before he could have murdered many others in the pews of their church.
You can't stop the "bad men with a gun" because they will defy current laws; you can only hamstring the "good man with a gun", because they will obey the law .. however unwillingly. Because "law-abiding".
And yet the crazy Gifford family ignores recent history, and allows their emotions to over-ride the Constitution because of their own personal tragic history.
We can't blame the Gifford family for allowing their experience to color their response, but it would be "nice" if the could step back and realize that none of the laws they espouse would be "common sense" ... because the "bad men" would ignore them.
Criminals will always have guns, because "Criminals"!
Trump administration sued by gun control group founded by Gabby Giffords:
“The Trump administration appears willing to let the National Rifle Association dictate its federal gun safety policy, which includes remaining silent on how to stem our nation’s gun violence epidemic,” said Robyn Thomas, executive director of the Giffords Law Center, according to the Huffington Post. “Protecting the safety of Americans should be the top priority of any president. Unfortunately, gun lobby profits seem to be more important to President Trump.”Oh, thanks a HELLUVA LOT, Gifford Family, for making it much more complicated than the Constitution really needs to be:
