Gun Control Wouldn’t Have Stopped The FL Shooting. It Caused It

Published

on

In response to the Parkland, Florida school shooting that left 17 people dead, the anti-gun voices in Washington, D.C. immediately began screaming for gun control. But the truth is, gun control won’t stop mass shootings, instead, it causes them to happen.

Research compiled by the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that over 98% of U.S. mass shootings from the 1950’s until 2016 have occurred in gun free zones. This research proves one simple fact: Mass shooters target gun free zones. That likely has to do with mass shooters attempting to amass the largest body count they can before police arrive; an armed citizen in the way would likely lead towards quicker resistance, and a lower body count.

Unsurprisingly, as it turns out, Wednesday’s shooting that left 17 people dead, and at least 14 injured also occurred in a gun free zone. Under Florida Statute 790.115: “Possessing or discharging weapons or firearms at a school-sponsored event or on school property prohibited; penalties;”. In other words, absolutely zero firearms on school property, with the exception of police officers, who really can’t be everywhere.

Florida’s laws are even more oppressive than the restrictions put forth by the Federal Gun Free School Zone Act, which has been in effect since the 1990’s, and hasn’t stopped any of the school shootings that have occurred since then.

Despite these facts, Democrats in Congress have already begun demanding more gun control, taking to Twitter to make their demands known.

It’s clear that Democrats don’t seem to care about real solutions to stop mass shootings, like repealing gun free school zones, which President Trump has supported, and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has filed a bill to do.

Texas Gun Rights Endorses Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Luther is running for the Texas Senate.

Published

Earlier this month, pro-Second Amendment organization Texas Gun Rights PAC endorsed Shelley Luther in her run for Texas State Senate.

Luther gained national attention for her refusal to close down her salon in Dallas, Texas, which was in violation of Dallas, County’s lockdown order. She would end up in jail for violating the order but would later be set free after Texas Governor Greg Abbott took action to release her.

Chris McNutt, the Director of Texas Gun Rights PAC, issued a statement on Texas Gun Rights PAC’s endorsement of Luther:

It is clear Shelley Luther is the strongest pro-gun candidate running to fill the Senate District 30 seat being vacated by Pat Fallon. Texas Gun Rights PAC is proud to endorse Shelley Luther for Senate in the September 29th Special Election.

“Even before Shelley decided to run for office, she proved she had the courage to stand up and fight against an overreaching government without backing down,” McNutt added. “So it’s no surprise Shelley Luther was also the first candidate in the Senate District 30 race to take a bold, pro-gun stance.”

Constitutional Carry is one of Luther’s legislative priorities for the 2021 legislative session. This issue has been a priority for the Texas Republican Party during the last 6 years. Drew Springer, Luther’s opponent in the Senate election, never supported Constitutional Carry.

Passing Constitutional Carry legislation is part of Luther’s campaign platform and has been a top priority of the Republican Party of Texas for the past 6 years. Her opponent, State Representative Drew Springer, has never backed Constitutional Carry since he came into office back in 2012.

“State Representative Drew Springer claims to be ‘pro-gun,’ and yet he repeatedly refused to co-author Constitutional Carry every year that it was introduced,” commented McNutt. “Pro-gun Texans in Senate District 30 need a leader who is willing to fight for the Second Amendment like Shelley Luther, not another political backbencher looking for a job promotion.”

Should Constitutional Carry be passed, Texas would be the 16th state with this law.

Thanks to the political establishment’s constant legislative roadblocking, Constitutional Carry has had a considerable amount of trouble in being passed in the Lone Star State.

With politicians like Luther potentially in the mix, Constitutional Carry has a stronger chance of being passed.  America First patriots living in Texas Senate District 30 should resoundingly vote for Luther due to her firm commitment to limited government.
