Following the 28th mass shooting in 46 days since 2018 began, a local gun owner is worried that the government is planning to infringe on his God-given rights.
“School shootings are horrible and my thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families. But banning things isn’t going to stop the bad guys. They’ll just find black market schools to shoot up”
When asked if he was beginning to get fearful that the government might make a move towards basic background checks on suburbs with proposed schools, and possibly taking schools away from offenders – Joe says he’ll form a militia before that happens.
“Out of my cold dead hands” says Joe Siggspek.
The 19-year-old suspected of killing 17 people at a high school north of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was a troubled former student who loved guns, locals and police say. His tragic actions have restarted a national debate about whether or not it is time to start talking about limiting the amount of schools that everyday Americans have access to.
Many American politicians have been quick to politicise this highly political issue, with many pointing out the obvious, that being the key factor in most school shootings is the actual schools they occur in.
