While the country is still reeling from the completely preventable and brutal attack in Sacramento California, another senseless act of violence was committed in a New York City Subway Station.
The gunman began his attack by donning a gas mask and activating a smoke grenade inside a train. As the smoke rose he then opened fire, striking people both inside and outside the train.
Below are two social media posts showing the aftermath of the attack. WARNING: some of the footage is graphic.
Unfortunately, the country is once again ringing with calls for more gun control. However, it’s important to note that both the Sacramento and New York attacks occurred in cities with some of the most strict gun control laws in the country.
What new gun law would possibly prevent someone bent on murder from committing the crime? The truth is, no gun law will prevent this violence.
What will prevent more senseless attacks is empowering law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. Also, cities must fund and support law enforcement agencies. Finally, the laws on the books must be enforced. The Sacramento attacker was out on early release due to woke policies despite the DA’s prediction that there would be violent crimes committed.
The odds are that this latest shooter is also a repeat offender, someone with a history of committing violent crimes.
What do you think, is gun control the answer? Or should politicians be held responsible for pushing feel-good policies that allow repeat offenders back on the streets?
