Tuesday morning, anti-gun lawmakers, gun control groups, and the Fake News media were jumping up and down as another school shooting was playing out on national TV.
Like all of the shootings before it, gun grabbers were hoping to use the news of the Maryland school shooting to further their ant-gun agenda.
But by noon, the story seemingly vanished.
That’s because — far from making the case for gun control — the Maryland shooting showed the utter failure of gun control in stopping violent crime!
You see, Maryland is a gun control activist’s dream come true.
* Maryland already has a complete firearms registration program in place, putting every gun owner in a central database.
* Maryland also has a complete ban on the AR-15 and 45 related firearms.
* Maryland has a ban on mags that hold over 10 rounds of ammunition.
* Maryland has extensive ‘Gun Free Zones,’ including the school in question from yesterday.
* Lastly, Maryland has a SEVEN day waiting period on all handgun sales.
But, as is always the case, all of that gun control failed to stop the criminal who ignored all of those laws as he carried out his violent attack!
But it gets even worse for the radical gun grabbers.
That’s because while all of the gun control laws in Maryland failed to stop this shooter, he was stopped . . . by a good guy with a gun!
An armed school resource officer was on site, heard the attack taking place, and shot and killed the suspect during the shooting spree!
Here’s a picture of the officer . . .
And so the lesson from the Maryland shooting is simple: the best way to stop violent criminals is to put more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens.
That’s why it’s vital candidates for Governor, Lt. Governor, and General Assembly return their GGO Candidate Survey 100% in favor of the Second Amendment and pledge to pass a Constitutional Carry law for Georgia!
And it’s not just Georgia Gun Owners saying this.
In Colorado, the State Senate just passed Constitutional Carry, sending it to the House for consideration.
In Wyoming, our sister organization, Wyoming Gun Owners, was able to pass Stand-Your-Ground law just last week!
Lawmakers in these states clearly know that the best response to a mass shooting is to increase Second Amendment freedom.
Constitutional Carry is the law today in over a dozen states, and is on the move in many more.
With so much going on in Atlanta and Washington D.C., we need your support now more than ever.
The Maryland shooting is just the latest in a series of mass shootings that reveal the utter failure that gun control has been in keeping Americans safe.
And, yet again, it showed that armed ‘good guys’ are the best way to stop criminals in their tracks!
It’s time the General Assembly in Atlanta acknowledge this and pass a Constitutional Carry law!
