Could Gun Control Have Really Prevented This Tragedy?

Gun control advocates never stop saying the most ridiculous things. Everytime some nutcase opens fire and injures and/or kills people, gun control advocates scream that more gun control would have saved lives.

But a recent mass shooting in California should make you question that narrative from anti-gunners. Jack Phillips writes,

The Santa Clara Sheriff’s Office in California said Wednesday that eight people died during a shooting at a Valley Transportation Authority railyard near San Jose.

“There are multiple injuries and multiple fatalities in this case,” sheriff’s Deputy Russell Davis told reporters near the crime scene, while confirming the number of victims who died. “The suspect is confirmed deceased.”

Davis said the suspect was an employee at the Valley Transportation Authority and the victims were also employees of the agency. The incident occurred at around 6:30 a.m. PT.

It’s not clear what type of firearm the suspect, who was not identified, used in the shooting, said Davis. Also unclear is whether the shooting took place indoors or outdoors.

“A horrible tragedy has happened today, and our thoughts and love goes out to the VTA family, the organization, and what they’ve had to go through,” Valley Transportation Authority chair Glenn Hendricks told reporters on the scene, adding that the incident occurred when the light rail service was starting for the day.

The shooting took place where Valley Transportation Authority vehicles are maintained and stored, he said.

So, would stricter gun control have stopped this tragedy? After all, it happened in California where gun control is strict. If already strict gun control didn’t stop this horrible shooting, what will more be able to do?

The answer is: Nothing.

That’s because gun control doesn’t work. All it really does is to keep the people who want to keep everyone safe from being able to have a firearm on their person when the stuff hits the fan. It makes it a lot harder to stop a slaughter if you can’t shoot back.

  1. They answer to the question “what would have stopped this carnage” is not “nothing”. In literally every public institution of “learning” in this country, the Leftist enemies of humanity who have been undermining them for half a century have created the disordered, self centered, entitled, self esteemed individuals that when they become teens and adults commit these heinous crimes against others. They then blame the behavior that results from the deceptions they have instilled in our children since early childhood on firearms or anywhere else that will distract from its true source. Few parents even noticed and many of the deceived among their ranks became unwitting participants in the event when in the 1960’s the legitimate virtue of self respect (selflessness) was discarded and supplanted by the phony virtue of self esteem (selfishness) at the hands of socially predatory instructors and mentors among others. Just ask yourself, when was the last time you ever heard the term “self respect” employed in any discussion with respect to raising children. Some of the deceived were complicit and are today while others were simply ignorant and complacent having been deceived themselves as children. As long as Americans who know better continue to finance the crap handed down to them by teachers unions, school administrators and other deceived or corrupted enemies of family and freedom, entrusting their vulnerable children to these social predators, the carnage will continue unabated. Once these enemies of your children’s genuine humanity are exposed for who they are, fewer and fewer will continue to entrust their children to them and skills of cognitive ability and enemy recognition will begin to return in them.
