Among the gun-controller / -abolitionist crowd, we often hear the
tripe trope that “Guns should be kept at gun clubs, which should be the only place you get to shoot them” and “All gun owners should be registered members of gun clubs”, and so on, all to do with how wonderful gun clubs are in terms of controlling gun use and allowing only lawful shooting. This, supposedly, will help end illegal gun use by criminals / terrorists / Trump supporters etc.
Then we see this little snippet:
Christchurch terror suspect ‘was member of New Zealand gun club where he practised shooting SAME AR-15 rifles used in horrific mosque massacres that left 49 dead’
…and another cherished little belief goes up in flames.
Gun clubs, and the restrictions attached thereto, do as much to stop random acts of violent crime as any of the other nostrums proposed by gun controllers, i.e. practically nothing.
So stop that shit. You’re not fooling anyone except others of your own ilk.
Afterthought: I would point out that this asshole, who was captured in the very act of his villainy, is no more a “suspect” than I’m a Democrat, but that’s an argument for another time.
