Colorado Springs Shooting

Just 1 week after America’s Midterms, another mass shooting occurs in the USA!  On 11/19/2022 Saturday evening a shooter enters a nightclub in Colorado Springs Colorado, and open fires on patrons of the nightclub. The shooter killing and injuring multiple people with a rifle. Our sincerest condolences to those who lost loved ones and are injured from yesterday’s event. So, what stopped the shooting? It wasn’t local law enforcement; it was patrons of the nightclub grabbing a handgun from the shooter and pistol whipping him unconscious.

This eerily echos the same issues that America has been dealing with for over 40 years. This issue is gun-bans and gun control! While the left continues to push gun bans and gun control to the rest of the USA as the solution to ending criminal behavior and mass shootings; everyone on the right has been vocal about the lack of gun education and conceal carry as the solution to ending these events. What we do know is that: since 1934 when the first gun control bill was passed NFA Act of 1934, there has been over 300,000+ gun laws passed across the USA! Of those 300K+ laws, a majority of them have been passed since the late 1970’s to present day.

If we connect the dots between gun laws passed over the last 40-ish years, we have an increase in gun violence year over year. Theoretically, if there are more laws against guns (or whatever topic you choose), wouldn’t there be less gun violence or less common occurrences of these issues? This theory has been proven wrong, year after year! The left is willing to “trust the science” but won’t trust factual hard case evidence.  Since we’ve proven that this theory of increasing gun laws prevents more gun related deaths is false, we can openly agree and state that these crimes are committed by criminals, and not law-abiding citizens. What’s the best way to protect your family or friends from criminals? Put a firearm between you and them!

At some point, when will these people come to terms that their inability to take a gun education class or even entertain the idea of a concealed carry option, as their way of promoting a solution to preventing these horrific events from occurring!  Also, worth noting that they are contributing to gun related deaths or active shooter incidents! How are they contributing to gun related deaths and active shooter incidents? If you remain unarmed and in the event of being in a life-or-death situation with a criminal who has a gun, you either become a victim and statistic or a survivor.

The graph above shows active shooter incidents in the US from 2000-2020. As you can see the incidents over time relatively keep spiking, year over year. In regard to today’s shooting, Colorado Ranks 10th in the US for 2022, by a pro left wing anti-gun policy websites. In other leading Anti-gun advocates websites, Colorado ranks between 11-14th place in States with Strictest gun laws, with an average ranking of 11th. One would understand that, if they rank near the top 1/5th in the US for highest gun laws, there would be less incidents over the past 20 years (with respects to those who lost their lives), but there hasn’t been the desired change the left-wing gun grabbers want. Additionally, the left leaning skewed data in the graph below doesn’t show violence or death by other forms of weapons (knives, baseball bat, hammer ect..) that surpass gun related deaths in place where states have strict gun laws (California, New York, Hawaii, ect..).

Finally, more gun laws on law abiding citizens only harm innocent lawful people, they do not restrict or curb criminal behavior. Get educated, take a gun safety course to become comfortable with a firearm, and get your concealed carry license! By doing so, you become a proactive citizen to protect your constitutional rights, therefore becoming a protector to our communities and ourselves. Be part of the solution to ending mass shootings and criminal behavior, conceal carry! 40+ years of gun laws have only created more innocent deaths than the previous 206 years, for country that is standing tall on the words of freedom.
