Kentucky Intensifies Gun Laws After School Shooting

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “A shooting at Marshall County High School in Benton, Ky., left at least two people dead and 17 others injured after a student opened fire on Tuesday, “ Fox News reported Tuesday. “[O]fficials said the alleged shooter, a 15-year-old male student, was in custody and will be charged with murder and attempted murder.”

“Much yet unknown,” Gov. Matt Bevin admitted on Twitter. “Please do not speculate or spread hearsay.”

So naturally, the gun-grabber default is to do just that, as well as to lay blame.

“Our nation’s schools should be some of the safest spaces in our communities,” Gabby Giffords asserted on Facebook. “Why do we keep allowing this terror to happen? We know how to solve this problem. Congress can protect kids in their classrooms, in the cafeteria, and on the playground – but to do that they must strengthen our gun laws.”

Really? Got any specifics, especially before facts on how the suspect got the gun he used are known?

Per CNN, citing State Police Commissioner Richard W. Sanders, “the suspect, armed with a handgun, walked into the school at 8:57 a.m. ET and started shooting.”

And he’s 15?

That means before he ever fired a shot he broke laws to possess the handgun, to transport it, and to bring it onto school grounds. And it’s already a felony in Kentucky for an adult and/or parent to “intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly” provide or permit a “juvenile to possess a handgun.”

Adults were mandated to be powerless to protect their charges.

In a sense, Giffords is right.

Our nation’s schools should be some of the safest spaces in our communities. We should not keep allowing this terror to happen and we do know how to solve this problem. Congress can protect kids in their classrooms, in the cafeteria, and on the playground.

But to do that they need to get rid of evil “gun free school zone” edicts that ensure “success” for those who would prey on the defenseless, the weak and the most vulnerable among us.

      Just STOP all armed protection of ‘elitist’ individuals–let them fend for themselves like the rest of us. See what happens! And that includes Secret Service!

      • PAproFirearms

        Forgot: I did NOT hear the Dem/Libtard clamoring for new laws after Scalise and the GOP softball players were targeted!

  • A_patriot

    Oh, please. Does anybody REALLY believe that such criminals intent on doing harm are suddenly going to pay attention to ANY gun-law? Seriously? We have enough on the books, already. STOP chipping away at the Second Amendment! What’s next? Knife laws? Car laws? Machete laws? Ax laws? All of these things have been used to commit murder. This in defiance of God’s law: Thou shalt not murder. (Yes, murder, not kill, is the correct translation.) I say all of these loosey-goosey liberal minded SOCIALISTS need to find themselves another planet to screw up. Good bye and don’t let the door hit you on the arse on the way out!

      According to FBI statistics, more people are killed by knives each year than by guns. Also, more people are killed by automobiles each year than by guns.
      Where is the outcry for knife control, or automobile control?

      • Bud Wood

        Seems that although you are correct, automobile kills are mostly accidental so should really be a different subject,

  • Medic RN

    Liberal blather sounds so poetic;”Gun free zones”, “Diversity is our strength”.
    But what does this liberal blather even mean?
    Come kill our children? Come drain our national treasure? Let us be murderous and poor? NO! MAGA! NOW!
    If MAGA is not a liberal first possession value of American Nationalism, then liberals are the problem, not the solution.

  • Sarge

    Evil is not in the gun, but in people’s hearts. A gun is a tool and like any other tool it is no better or worse then the person using it. I am sorry for the parents of the dead children and for the wounded. But until we can teach people respect for life, tragedies will continue to happen.

  • Daniel from TN

    Has anyone noticed these killings only occur in gun free zones such as schools, post offices, etc.?
    When was the last time you heard of a gunman on a shooting spree at a gun show, or a police convention?
    I believe it is prudent for the Kentucky legislature to review state laws to see if changes are needed. But to have new legislation ready less than a week after the shooting is reckless, and clear thought could not have possibly gone into it. Then again, since when do Liberals think clearly?

  • EC

    Knee-jerk reactions can be expected from certain ignorant, overly emotional members of society, but it’s disgusting when these reactions come from members of Congress. It says a lot about who gets elected these days – certainly NOT the cream of the crop. Just like Obama, they form their opinions long before they know what the hell the facts are. These mindless buffoons need to be thrown out of office. They’ve already done enough damage.

  • HappyDog1

    News reported the shooter’s friend said he was a quiet kid, a good kid, everyone like him, but that he became agitated days before the shooting. How did he get the gun? Did he okay highly emotional video games about killing, death, War, etc.

  • lightingengineer

    Unpoliced gun free zones filter out and incapacitate those with good intentions and cannot possibly stop those with bad intentions. Today we have more than 80 times as many concealed carry licenses as we have on-duty police. Time for armed security by police and/or teachers in every school. Time for universal national concealed carry. I can protect myself and others around me in 39 States. Why not 50?

  • bahndon

    There is not one law that will stop someone that is determined to commit this kind of criminal activity, ONLY A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN CAN STOP A BAD GUY WITH A GUN.

  • theseer

    HE THE LIB SNOWFLAKE SHOOTER FORGOT TO OFF HIMSELF…

  • JBMac

    I am beyond sick of Ms. Giftords and her stupid mate spewing hate immediately every time their is a mass shooting. These liberals hope all guns are confiscated so only the criminals have them.

  • pat

    We had to listen to Brady’s bullshit all those years now we have to listen to this bitch,it never ends.

  • Alan404

    Seems like the shooter remains amongst the living, a circumstance providing the following question. WHY? or HOW COME?

  • Paladin

    Someone needs to publish ‘101 productive uses for a liberal’…

    • Juanito Ibañez

      Taking a hint from a very old ‘Twilight Zone’ episode — ‘To Serve Man’:

      ‘To Serve Democrats’ — “It’s a COOKBOOK!”

      • Paladin

        Good episode… I saw it. Let’s go lookin’ for hungry aliens who like to eat libs!!!

  • MASTERMECH

    Just come to reality, NO GUN laws will ever stop a determined individual from using guns in a criminal manor. Most of the gun laws make it harder for law abiding individuals to protect themselves and others around them. In reality, GUN LAWS only help the bad guys. Bad people DO NOT respect laws period. I’ll give you a serious/positive action, CUT THE THUMBS OFF Criminal Shooters, now try to hold a hand gun. Not perfect but a start.

  • Robert Haltiwanger

    any law must apply to everyone. You want to take the guns away, OK let do that to everyone. No guns for everyone, that includes the cops, military, bodyguards secret service, gangs will turn in their guns, right? No guns in the USA. close down the military, companies will stop making weapons, make the USA gun free. Russia, China, and all our enemies will leave us alone because we are now gun free. History was shown us that peaceful unarmed people are left alone, right? NO, History have shown that people that can not defend themselves, ends up dead or slaves.

  • Ed

    Well he he violated the gun free zone law. Bailiff whack his ………..Why is it that these folks can’t get it into their heads CRIMINALS DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE LAWS.

  • SIRWIZARD

    I think I’ve seen this movie before. Leftist knee-jerk reflex. Make schools even MORE defenseless.
