In Their Own Words: Is gun control discourse effective?

In Their Own Words: Is gun control discourse effective?

In response to President Donald Trump's statement that, "this isn't a guns situation", Brown said, "This is about guns and the failure of this administration to protect us. And I feel very strongly about it".

There's no procedure under federal law to force people convicted of domestic abuse to surrender guns they already own. Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, the organization's lobby arm, was quick to "applaud" Trump's decisive action in making sure that potential mass murderers can more easily get their hands on the weapons they need to kill innocent people.

The shooting is unlikely to sufficiently shake up well-worn gun politics to produce meaningful changes in the nation's gun laws, even though public support for more regulation typically spikes after mass shootings. The state does not have any restrictions on magazine capacity, nor does it have any restrictions on firearm ownership for the mentally ill.

This view is born out in scads of polling data over the years.

Speaking during his 10-day tour of Asia, Trump responded to a question about gun control in the wake of the shooting - one of the deadliest in modern United States history. After multiple failed efforts to persuade Congress to act on gun control, he and his White House admitted that the will simply wasn't there. The Texas shooter reportedly purchased the assault rifle used in the attack from a gun dealer in San Antonio previous year. They view the right to own a gun as a core freedom; nearly three in four gun owners describe the right to own firearms as "essential to their own sense of freedom", according to the Pew poll. Trump said that he would talk about that later.

One common denominator among mass shootings is the huge power of the NRA.

As evidence, they will note that the shooter in the Texas case was denied a gun license. Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that the incident left 27 people, including children, while more people have been wounded.

She calls the mental health issue a "red herring", but says that if mental health is indeed the problem, then "the question is, what are you going to do to improve the mental health issue".

Murphy, a Democrat and vocal advocate for gun control, blasted lawmakers for failing to pass laws that could prevent tragedies like Sunday's Texas rampage.

"While we mourn the loss of the Texans brutally gunned down in their house of worship-many of whom were children-we can not wait another day to do something to help stop future tragedies like this".
