In light of the horrific tragedy that occurred this month in Tucson, many people across the nation expected gun restriction debates to catch fire.
Quite unexpectedly in Arizona, however, the opposite has happened. Republicans have continued to surge forward in their Second Amendment rights legislation.
According to The Huffington Post, the Tucson shooting did next to nothing to halt legislation that would continue to make firearms available to the general public.
What is even more surprising is that the GOP is beginning to make moves to allow students at college campuses across the state to legally carry concealed weapons.
|What suprises me (and others) is that so many are ready, willing, and even eager to pass laws infringing on my rights based on emotional reactions to criminal acts.
Since each person elected to any office of note in this nation swears an other to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, why would it suprise anyone that elected officials and those seeking such elected office move to defend one of the enumerated Rights of The People?
Egad! gadzooks! and, as the younger crowd today says... WTF?
