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.

As far as the "good guys with guns protecting others" it depends on the laws regarding carry in the state or city.

I know of a couple incidents in my city where a person with a CCL stopped suspicious activity by merely making the possible perps aware of their gun, without even drawing. Those types of things don't even make local news.


Quoting FromAtoZ:

Good question.

I posted about what happened when I saw it come across the top of Yahoo as I was going to my email.  Not much reaction.

I am glad that no one was killed.  Maybe that has something to do with the lack of concern or coverage?  I don't know.

I watched the video and it was terrifying.  Just because the shooter wasn't connected to 'terrorizem' some how, or some kid shooting at a school, doesn't take away from the terror those in that crowd had to feel.

So much for the good guys with guns protecting every one else.

Isn't Louisiana a red state?

Quoting Sisteract:

Please do not feed the attention seeker.



Quoting lga1965:

Sure , because you don't think people in blue states are important to.you or worth caring about,right ?





Quoting Billiejeens:

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.

No, those instances never make the news.

It's just the overall feeling that some people believe.  The good guys are not able to protect due to laws, they good guys are always there, etc.

It just gets old.  All of it.  At this point, I really don't care who owns a gun or what type of gun.  I don't believe in the good guys versus the bad guys or otherwise.  Any one with a gun can be either at any given moment.  Same with those who don't believe in owning a gun or allowing any one else to.

The middle ground isn't something people are willing to seek.

Oh boy. You are a broken record.

Shouldn't you have said something about the precious aborted babies too?

Right now they are busy spinning the talking points to keep Obama from getting the blame for Benghazi, the IRS and the AP.   They have enough to keep them busy these days.

My middle ground is I don't own a gun. I support reasonable regulation on guns but gun control does not mean banning guns.

Just my two cents on my middle ground.

Bingo.

Quoting JoshRachelsMAMA:

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.

Free guns? Where?

Quoting Sisteract:

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.
