Some people are getting a wake up call about about guns in the wake of the recent Vegas shootings.
A guitarist who played during the Las Vegas music festival where the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history took place Sunday night said
he was “wrong” about his support for the Second Amendment.
Caleb Keeter, guitarist for the Josh Abbott Band, said on Twitter Monday he’s been a supporter of the Second Amendment for his “entire life.”
“Until the events of last night,” Keeter said. “I cannot express how wrong I was. We actually have members of our crew with [concealed handgun
licenses], and legal firearms on the bus. They were useless.”
Let the statement above sink in for a moment.
These mass shootings are occurring more frequently with each event becoming worse and worse. Not too long before this one we had Virginia which made
held the former record. Conneticut? California? It never ends. The Trump administration and others argue that now's the time not to have a debate on
gun violence. Now IS THE TIME to have that debate. If not now, there will never be that time. Gun nuts want to sweep this issue under the rug but
it's not going away. Caleb has woken up and over time more will wake up. Something needs to be done.
Hiding behind the founders and the 2nd amendment, back to a time where guns were a fraction responsive to your standard hand gun today, isn't going
to do it anymore.
Hiding behind the argument that guns are the only answer against other guns isn't going to do it anymore.
By far the worst in the developing world. The UK, Germany, Japan and Australia see nothing in comparison to this mess. Want to talk about bigger
populations? India, China? How do the stats compare for mass civilian shootings? We look terrible against them in terms on gun violence.
You know what I found funny as well? That the Trump administration had the nerve to argue that now's not the time to debate gun violence, it's the
time to grieve and respond. Yet Trump never bothered to do this for Puerto Rico. Right after the hurricane, the 'lazy' talk comes out.
Like it or not. The push for gun control is not going away.
