With The country’s latest mass shooting has claimed the lives of a prominent doctor and four others, including two children, in South Carolina. The question is why? Why haven’t we came up with proper laws for “Gun Control”. Why haven’t we passed an Law to prevent Mass Shootings such as this?
Ex-NFL player Phillip Adams kills 5, injures 1 in Rock Hill, SC before killing himself. According to officers, Adams, 32, played for the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets in a six-year career that began in 2010.
York County Coroner Sabrina Gast identified the victims found dead in the house as,
Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70; his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69; Adah Lesslie, 9; and Noah Lesslie, 5.
James Lewis, 38, an air conditioning technician with GSM Services of Gastonia, NC, was killed. Robert Shook, another technician, was injured and remains in serious condition, York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson said at a Thursday news conference.
During this tragic incident, the The Lesslie family issued a statement, read by Tolson Thursday, that said
“the losses we are suffering cannot be uttered at this time. We are truly in the midst of the unimaginable,” the Lesslie family said. “While we know there are no answers that will satisfy the question why, we are sure of one thing we do not grieve as those without hope.”
April 8th Biden holds an press conference, addressing the tragic incident an gun laws an concerns.
“Gun violence in this country is an epidemic,” Biden said in the Rose Garden to an audience of lawmakers and Americans touched by gun violence. “And it’s an international embarrassment.”
The executive actions — which Biden repeatedly argued did nothing to impinge on the Second Amendment right to bear arms — include efforts to restrict weapons known as “ghost guns” that can be built using parts and instructions purchased online.
Biden Also emphasized the announcements only amount to the first steps toward addressing gun violence, with later action like a ban on assault weapons or rules requiring universal background checks requiring Congress. Biden, who is in the midst of advancing a massive infrastructure plan, has previously voiced uncertainty on the likelihood of passing major new gun laws.
On Thursday, he acknowledged the persistent struggle in convincing Washington to act on a seemingly intractable issue.
“We’ve got a long way to go,” he said, “it seems like we’ve always got a long way to go.”
But he insisted lawmakers must break the pattern.
“They’ve offered plenty of thoughts and prayers, members of Congress, but they have passed not a single new federal law to reduce gun violence,” he said. “Enough prayers, time for some action.”
The question is when will pass better gun laws? When will we have more laws in order to prevent such tragic events? How many more family an friends will we have to lose in order to have better gun laws control?
