If you’re wondering why news reports about the alleged west Texas mass shooter have died down much faster than previous mass shootings, it’s because the details that are emerging do not jibe with the gun control agenda being promoted by mainstream media. The more we learn about the alleged gunman and how he acquired the firearm, the clearer it becomes that no measure of gun control would have prevented this mass shooting.

First, it was revealed that the suspect had failed a background check. This was instantly pounced on by many Democrats who believed that meant it was a legal private sale in which background checks aren’t required. This would mean their universal background checks would have done the trick.

…but…

A new report indicates police believe the gun was illegally manufactured and sold by a man in Lubbock, Texas. If this turns out to be true, and it’s unlikely police would be raiding the suspect’s home if they didn’t have a solid case to build upon, then that means no gun control measure would have stopped it. Not universal background checks. Not “assault weapons” bans. Not mandatory buybacks. Nothing.

As Texas Governor Greg Abbott noted, gun control legislation is designed to harm lawful gun owners, not criminals who find ways to circumvent the system. That’s the nature of criminals, after all.

If there was only a law against illegally buying/selling firearms, then this never would have happened.

I bet the liberal shithead cult will avoid this thread like the plague. Anyway, the media is being quiet about this, another illegal gun, another shooting. when will we deal with the illegal gun problem and stop focusing on the outliers.
