Where's the anti gun crowd after the NOLA shootings?

Posted by   + Show Post
For the record, I have no stance on gun control, I view guns the same way I view abortion: don't like them, don't get one. I was surprised, though, that there was no cry for stricter gun control after the shooting in Nawlins. Why has it been so quiet? I've asked a few people IRL this question and have gotten interesting answers, so I thought I'd ask you ladies.

Because the stories are saturating us, I suppose.

Who was shot? Only minorities? Only adults? I don't know the details.

I think people are getting sick and tired. Sadly.

Quoting ashellbell:

This was actually one of the theories I heard. Because the guy was black and his guns were illegal anyway.


Quoting IhaveHisjoy:

 Because it was a black man? Perhaps?


 

Well, now, I didn't think of that one but of course you did.

Because LEGAL gun owners are not involved.

Quoting ashellbell:

But where's the outrage because of the shooting that occurred? Why isn't this shooting being used as an example for stricter gun control like the Colorado shooting or Sandy Hook?




Quoting Sisteract:

Seems the militia is something we all get to live (if we're lucky) with- regulated or otherwise.


More guns are supposed to make us safer. Heck there are even people against taking the guns out of the hands of mentally ill folks,because we might just tread on someone's rights.

I've been too busy to read about it.
But,since I am.for background checks and gun control, I'll just say that it shouldn't have happened and again....the NRA sucks big time.

There was a thread on CM about the situation-

I'll admit I did not open the thread. I am like the poster above said, "saturated."

It's a free -for- all in terms if guns in this country- The only people who really care anymore are those directly affected.

Well, the shooter was black.  No way he could be a right-wing, Sarah Palin-obsessed  Obama hater.  So, you know, whatevs.

Personally I am not going to get all worked up over people shooting/killing in each other in large cities in Blue States.

Just not going to happen.
