The recent school shooting in Texas once again brought out the worst in all of the NRA apologists. As we are all aware, they feel the problem with gun violence isn't the guns, but literally anything else BUT the guns.
Numerous folks have pointed out that he used a shotgun and pistol, NOT an AR-15, so therefore banning AR-15s would have had NO EFFECT on this shooting. Never mind that a "child" of 17 isn't allowed to be in possession of a shotgun or pistol, so he had them illegally (see? - criminals WILL find a way to get guns... they'll take their parents' guns). Never mind that if dear old dad happened to have an AR-15 in the house, the kid would most certainly have used it (and done much worse damage). Never mind that people who actually DO want to control gun violence have proposed numerous regulations on gun control besides banning AR-15 (semi-automatic rifle) type weapons, and one of them would be holding the gun owner criminally liable for crimes committed with his/her weapons.
