With the Second amendment allowing American citizen’s the right to bear arms I Fear we will be seeing more shootings. It is in my personal opinion, that guns should not be allowed in the hands of mentally unstable persons. More gun laws are not needed, but to be enforced. Parents and gun owners should be more stringent in making sure those guns are stored and locked away safely.
Granted, the brand-new looser gun laws in Texas, which are almost ludicrous in how widely they permit the possession and carrying of firearms, are part of a series of bills passed before June. But in view of the two recent mass shootings in Texas—making it the state with 4 of the 10 deadliest mass shootings in modern U.S. history—the laws look especially ludicrous. Given that most of the American public wants stricter gun laws, but the Republicans (pressed by the NRA) apparently want every American to be armed with a semiautomatic rifle that they can carry to Starbucks, these laws make Texas look especially bad. I can only imagine how the rest of the world regards us now—now that we seem to have a mass shooting every two weeks.
And the solution to these murders? MORE GUNS, Texas tells us. CNN reports what the new laws are (click on screenshot):
