Gun Control Debate: Navy Yard Shooting Another Poor Excuse For More Laws

As usual, gun control laws failed to prevent the latest mass shooting in D.C., and politicians and the media incorrectly covered it. It’s a tragedy, and trying to exploit it in order to pass more gun control laws is not going to happen, Americans have learned by now that more gun control legislation does not work.

The left is falling all over itself to demand more gun control laws after the most recent mass shooting at the Washington, D.C., Navy Yard which left 13 people dead including the shooter. Yet, D.C. is home to some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. The shooter apparently lawfully purchased a shotgun in neighboring Virginia, then brought it with him to the D.C. Navy Yard where he opened fire. 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) held a press conference after the shooting, reporting that “the killer was armed with an AR-15, a shotgun and a semiautomatic pistol.”  She said, “This is one more event to add to the litany of massacres that occur when a deranged person or grievance killer is able to obtain multiple weapons — including a military-style assault rifle — and kill many people in a short amount of time.”

Feinstein championed the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban in Congress, and would like to see it brought back again. However, it turned out she was wrong about the killer and the AR-15, as well as the pistol. He did not own an AR-15 or pistol; he illegally took them off the bodies of those he killed, including a security guard who was carrying the pistol for his job.
