“I support the Second Amendment, but I had to ask myself, ‘are we truly doing everything we can to make our kids and communities safer?’” Scott said. “Because if we’re at a point where our kids are afraid to go to school, and parents are afraid to put them on a bus; or police don’t have the tools they need to protect victims of violence; or families can’t step in to prevent a loved one from taking their own life; then who are we?”
Seems to be a mantra, “I support the 2nd Amendment, but…”
No it’s not. Look at the Waffle House shooting and what happened there. People – both citizens and politicians – are finally realizing that guns can’t be allowed to be used untethered. And I like what I saw recently that pointed out that the Second Amendment was strictly for the establishment of a “militia.”
The Waffle House shooting was another example of police pretty much letting white boys get away with criminal threats with weapons, which eventually leads to something very bad.
The Waffle House shooter had his guns confiscated from him, but his dad either gave them back to the shooter, or didn’t secure them well enough. In addition, he was a stalker, and he had a police record for threatening people with an AR-15. I guess I just don’t understand, but IMHO, if someone is threatening people WITH A GUN, they should be arrested and prosecuted. At least in FL, that’s a felony charge.
