(TheConservativeNews.org) – The leftist argument that banning guns would reduce gun crime has been exposed as deeply flawed many times. Taking guns away from law-abiding Americans would simply allow criminal and dangerous weapon use to proceed without fear of consequence in the moment. This was demonstrated by a shooting spree that took place in Louisiana on Saturday, February 20.
According to the local sheriff, police arrived at the Jefferson Gun Outlet after reports a single shooter had opened fire at the facility. The gunman shot two individuals inside the gun store, but was confronted by other weapon owners who were present. He shot two more people outside the store before sustaining a fatal gunshot wound himself.
The two people initially shot were pronounced dead at the scene. Those who were subsequently shot are recovering in hospital; their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
What happened here was undoubtedly a tragedy. However, had it not been for the trained, responsible gun owners who were on the scene, it could have been much worse.
