Northam Admits Latest Gun Grab Wouldn’t Prevent VA Beach

Gun control proponents latch onto every mass shooting and use it to advance their anti-gun agenda. It doesn’t take long, either. We usually see them push gun control proposals on social media before the facts have even started coming in. They’ll tout “assault weapon” bans before we know what weapon was used, for example.

So it wasn’t surprising to see Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam jump all over the Virginia Beach shooting with such vehemence. It’s the way of his people, after all.

What is surprising is that he is willing to admit that none of the proposals being touted by him and others would have prevented the tragedy.

It is encouraging to see that it was students that forced the issue.

This is the kind of statement that concerns me from Northam. He is playing word games. Any additional gun law restrictions is a violation of our 2nd amendment rights.

We lose too many Virginians each year to senseless gun violence, and it is time we take meaningful steps to protect the health and safety of our citizens,” said Governor Northam. “I look forward to opening a dialogue with the General Assembly on this legislative package of reasonable gun violence reforms, which appropriately balances Second Amendment Rights with public safety.

Not to sidetrack, but I heard the "suicide" connection as a means to demonize guns and justify seizing them. Ya know, if a person has a right to determine what they do with their own body, how can such intervention in a suicide be legal?

Iirc, according to suicidology.org less than 50% of suicides utilize a firearm, but it's still the #1 source for successful suicides on the 1st attempt. I'd like to see other states do as Utah did, and provide free powerpoint presentations to discuss this issue, with resources available for those considering suicide. Utah's Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Identification provided that PowerPoint presentation to all of its Concealed Firearm Permit Instructors.
