Guns aren't going away, especially in the USA, so deal with the reality instead of screaming for something that isn't going to happen and scapegoating the NRA and law-abiding firearm owners. The airline said the decision reflected "the airline's neutral status in the current debate over gun control". Every day when we go to class, a movie, work, any setting with a large number of people, there's the risk that some individual has gotten hands on a deadly weapon and has come to the point of being ready to murder as many innocent people as they can. Their standard refrain has been that talking "too soon" about guns after a fatal shooting is "insensitive" and "disrespectful" of parents of dead children and of survivors.
Although media coverage would have people believe that everyone in Florida has decidedly turned against guns in the wake of a school shooting, that isn't really the case.
This time, however, the descent has been much less pronounced - and it seems we've hit a plateau of interest around gun control.
"We have heard you". The businesses include Delta and United airlines; Enterprise, Hertz, Avis, National and Alamo rental vehicle companies; Best Western Hotels & Resorts and Wyndham hotels; North American Van Lines Inc.; MetLife Inc., which offered auto and home insurance incentive programs for NRA members; and Chubb Ltd, which underwrites an NRA-branded insurance policy for gun owners. There would be a record of who purchased the gun and where that person lived. Now, the current Australian Ambassador to the USA, he recently tweeted it can't happen here because "guns are more pervasive and cultural" in the United States. Maybe semi automatic guns are more unsafe than revolvers or lever actions, or pumps, or muzzle loaders. That's how, as a society, we will be judged. Well, we can learn from the UK.
In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, students flocked to the state capitol to demand legislators take action to prevent the next school shooting. Citizens reacted by signing petitions and pressuring their lawmakers to make a change. According to Murphy, the discussion included the introduction of a new bill that could possibly create more regulations if passed. Officials collected some 200,000 firearms and 700 tons of ammunition. But sadly, many people who have these needs may never turn to God in repentance and faith. When an active shooter decides to use our children for target practice, do you want to give them extra minutes for their sport?
In the United States, I do not expect to see a complete ban of firearms. They are winning the argument, with more than 90 percent approval in some polls for universal background checks and high approval rates for measures such as outlawing "bump stocks" and raising the minimum age to purchase assault-type weapons like the AR-15. But we should also expect that those who are able to have guns are, at the very least, not a threat to public safety. For that matter, most school violence does not even involve a gun at all. What about my freedoms - to walk through an airport, attend a movie, disco or concert, send children to school - without fear of being mowed down? "During the Virginia Ratifying Convention, Mason argued the importance of the public remaining armed, stating, "...to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them..."
