Details of the Santa Fe Shooting Don’t Fit the Gun Control Agenda
There’s a good reason why the recent Santa Fe shooting is not getting nearly as much media attention as the Parkland shooting, and it has nothing to do with the slightly fewer number of victims.
In two very important ways, the Santa Fe school shooting does not fit the narrative of the gun control agenda, therefore offering little leverage for the gun control crowd to capitalize on through non-stop coverage, protests, and student outcries. The most important of the two reasons that the Santa Fe shooting does not fit the gun control narrative is the shooter’s choice of weapons.
The Santa Fe shooter carried out his attack – which left ten people dead – using a shotgun and .38 special revolver – neither of which are the much-vilified “assault rifle” — and both of which are commonly used for both hunting and protection. Supporters of the Second Amendment have long argued that even a blanket ban of all semi-automatic firearms would not stop or even slow down individuals intent on murder, and the Santa Fe shooting is a grisly proof of this point.
The second reason that the Santa Fe shooting does not fit the gun control agenda is the shooter’s age. Following the Parkland shooting, gun control activists pushed for the minimum age to buy a firearm to be increased. The Santa Fe shooter, however, was not old enough to purchase a firearm even under current laws, highlighting the inability of more laws to stop people who are determined to break them.
