Liberals are attempting to blame lack of proper gun control for the Las Vegas shooting, but that’s NOT the truth, and advocates are now DESPERATELY attempting to hide facts from the American public.
According to gun control advocates, an increase in gun regulation could have prevented this tragedy from occurring. In reality, those regulations have nothing to with the attack as the shooter was firing an automatic weapon, the most heavily regulated firearm in America. Extensive background checks, fingerprints, and registration are enforced when purchasing an automatic weapon, not to mention the need for a dealers license in order to legally obtain the weapon to begin with.
Therefore, the shooter either legally went through all the protocols, or, his criminal actions began with illegally acquiring the weapons used in the attack, which makes gun control irrelevant to the situation.
Unfortunately, there are no regulations that you can put on person who has shows no previous signs of mental illness. People snap. This man wanted to kill a lot of people, and had he not been able to obtain these weapons due to stricter gun laws, he could have just as well done this much damage with a homemade bomb or flying into a building with one of his personal airplanes.
Chances are, someone who is going to kill hundreds of people will probably not abide by stricter gun laws anyhow.
WAKE UP AMERICA.
“You do not need a permit to buy a rifle, shotgun or handgun, nor do you need to register the weapon, or be licensed to own one,” Quartz reported — while burying the fact that a federal background check is required for all those purchases.
In addition to the background check requirement, there’s also the pesky reality about automatic weapons and machine guns: They’re extremely regulated already, and are illegal to own unless a stringent application and registration process is followed.
Automatic weapons fall under both the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986. Under the law, every NFA firearm must be individually registered with the ATF. Before that happens, an even more in-depth background check is required, which includes photographs and fingerprints.
Clearly liberals and the mainstream media are confused about what honest journalism entails.
Although this story isn’t blatantly lying about anything, hidden facts still makes for FAKE news! If your agenda can’t be supported with factual evidence, maybe it’s time for a new one.Stop blaming guns and start blaming the psychotic people who illegally obtain them.
