The Senate Will Introduce a Bill on Gun Control [VIDEO]
The Senate is poised to introduce 2013 legislation on gun control. The fact is, dozens of mass killings have occurred in our country since two teenagers went on a rampage at Columbine High School. Now with the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, more and more American’s are calling on our leaders to do something about the growing list of mass shootings plaguing us. For example:
July 1999, a stock exchange trader in Atlanta, Georgia, killed 12 people including his wife and two children. September 1999, a gunman opened fire at a prayer service in Fort Worth, Texas, killing six people. April 2007, student Seung-Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people and wounded 15 others at Virginia Tech. December 2007, a 20-year-old man killed nine people and injured five others in a shopping center. December 2008, a man dressed as Santa Claus opened fire at a family Christmas party. April 2009, a man shot dead 13 people at a civic center in Binghamton, New York. November 2009, U.S. army psychologist Major Nidal Hasan opened fire at a military base in Fort Hood, Texas, leaving 13 dead. January 2011, a gunman opened fire at a public gathering in Tucson, Arizona, killing six people including a 9-year-old girl. July 20, a masked gunman kills 12 people and wounds 58 when he opens fire on moviegoers. December 14, a shooter opens fire at the Sandy Hook Elementary School killing several people including children.
The story about the legislation originally appeared in the Drudge Report as the headline story but has since been moved to the sideline. Now I must be careful of giving an opinion on this issue, so I won’t say anything accept that when I hear gun owners talk about assault weapons used for recreational use, and hunting, I think of this scene in an Eddie Murphy movie about duck hunting. What do you think of?
