Sane Americans support reasonable gun control

A single rose is left at the door of the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino in Las Vegas, Nev., on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017. A gunman opened fire on an outdoor music concert on Sunday. It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, with dozens of people killed and hundreds injured, some by gunfire, some during the chaotic escape.

In stark contrast to columnist Andrea Seastrand’s fantastical conception of Second Amendment constraints, the Oct. 1, 2017, massacre of concertgoers in Las Vegas by a gunman armed with dozens of fully automatic weapons proves beyond all doubt that in America, there is no effective gun control.

The NRA and gun lovers can whine all they want about “freedom,” but from this date forward, all sane Americans will support the strict enforcement of reasonable gun controls.
