Would you destroy your assault-style weapon? Social Media is divided

Gun owners destroy their assault-style weapons in a series of viral videos after the 2018 shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead. Others use their social media to defend their second amendment rights.

As I read the newspaper and listen to the television news I hear the tragic news about the shootings in El Paso and Ohio. It is easy to see the United States has become a violent country.

People have complained and protested about the use of assault weapons and the flimsy excuse the politicians and the NRA use, is it’s against the 2nd Amendment. Prohibiting assault weapons and repeating revolvers would not be against the 2nd Amendment. People could still bear arms such as rifles and hand guns.



The only people who should have assault weapons is the military, NOT the civilians. No matter what excuse is being stated, No civilian needs assault weapons.



Just think, when this subject first began we may not have had these tragic happenings.

I also believe, if we did not have lobbyists we would not have all the problems we have today.



What do you think?
