This bill not only will not reduce crime, the math says that it is absolutely certain to increase it. The only real question is who the first person to be killed (accidentally or on purpose) will be.
What this bill WILL do is create a new market for gun-runners who already sell enough weapons each year to arm every single voter - about 80M of us.
The real questions here are ones like:1. WHICH student will have to die a violent death at school to generate those profits?2. How many students will die - and will any be carrying a baby at the time?3. Will the shooting be accidental or on purpose?4. Will drugs or alcohol be involved in the attack? (A statistical near-certainty).5. Did a cop search the shooter, see the gun, and let them go - prior to the attack?6. Did the shooter come from a family where gun-violence was a topic of comedy, and in which killing things for fun was considered acceptable behavior?
Ok, Sanders, show us the "math" that shows an increase in crime.
The bill won't change any laws pertaining to buying or owning firearms, so where is the new market?
Answers:1. None, gun owners already (I know this is shocking) OWN GUNS, so there will be no proliferation of firearms beyond what already exists.2. Now students carry babies all over campus???; No more will die than already die due to on-campus shoot-outs, which is somewhere around zero on average.3. You're more likely to fall to your death or drown than you are to be accidentally killed by a firearm. CDC shows us that in the National Vital Statistics report every single year.4. Why don't you look up the actual stats and find that CHL holders are 13 times less likely to commit a crime than the average citizen and get back to us on the "drug" question. (as reported by the Texas DPS)5. No, because (as already stated) CHL holders aren't the issue. the VT shooter wasn't a CHL.6. Even if he was (and we've already established that it's not a CHL holder), would the implementation of this law have ANY effect on that? No. You can't (and never will) determine with certainty the effects of childhood experiences on future outcomes.
Quit living in your fantasy-land of fear mongering, and join the rest of the world. You could start with just a little bit of education.
