Personally I believe our democrats are somehow linked/orchestrate/are responsible in some ,manner/somehow for the "mass shootings" that have occurred here in the US, and then they use them to pass more anti gun legislation. I know it sounds like a conspiracy theory, but then so has everything else them dems actually have done the last 10+ yrs, that were later proved true.Mnay years ago I owned and shot self loading rifles here in the UK. What I saw happen over here was the antis used shooting incidents as a springboard to push for more restrictive legislation. The self loading rifle ban here followed a mass shooting in our west country and the handgun ban followed a worse one, in Scotland.
I dont need to tell you these bans did not reduce gun crime at all. However, the antis dont need logic and common sense on their side. They just want to restrict or eliminate gun ownership. I see the incident on your Capital as a potential springboard the antis will use. I think those who attacked the capital issued a golden ticket to those who would restrict or ban ownership of firearms. You dont need to tell me there is no connecton, but be sure they will try.
