New Zealand shooting

It hasn’t even been 24 hours since the New Zealand shooting when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mocked the NRA (and Christians) saying, “What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe? (Note to AOC: Mosques don’t have pews).

I really hesitated to post this but since AOC thought it expedient to score political points on this tragedy, I feel compelled to respond. First, New Zealand has more stringent gun laws than the U.S. but that didn’t stop the shooting.

Second, this shooting demonstrates that stringent gun laws do not keep people from obtaining guns any more than drug laws keep people from obtaining drugs.

Third, someone so evil they would open fire on a crowd of innocent people is certainly not going to be concerned about gun laws anyway.

Finally, as I understand it, the only reason there wasn’t even more carnage is because one of the congregants used his own gun to chase the gunman away. Of course none of this matters to AOC or other anti-gun lobbyists. They just want an excuse to take away your guns.

Please pray for the family and friends of the victims of this atrocity.
