In AMG’s “serious” conversation about gun control thread, someone accidentally raises a serious question:
In this latest horror, how much gun control will have any effect on the mentally ill that steal a gun ?
One child was shot eleven times with an automatic. Would one shot from a single shot gun had a different result?
This person undoubtedly thinks they are making the case for no gun regulations. What a maroon.
The answer is YES. YES, a child is many, many times more likely to survive a singlet gunshot rather than eleven. YES, I’d rather be shot once myself rather than eleven times. YES, I would rather the person aiming at my child have only one bullet available instead of eleven. YES, the school principle who rushed the shooter would have preferred the shooter have only one bullet to use between each reload.
YES, the other children running away from the gunman would have preferred a shooter with a single shot weapon.
Yes, yes, and yes again.
Thanks, Calvin, for putting the finger on the right question, even if you clearly didn’t mean it.
