I am so sick and tired of the people who hate guns coming out of the woodwork every time there is a tragedy.

Where are they when every day in Mexico — where guns are illegal, by the way — people die from guns at a higher rate that the US.

Starting with media who glorifies the killings and plastering it 24/7 so that other deranged individuals and watch and learn all about how to carry their craziness. We need to ban the media from sensation ling these events. Watch how they scream and cry about that.

Yes, I support gun control. I was against the law in AZ that allows all to carry concealed. It was a good thing having to take a class, get finger printed and learn about gun safety in order to get a CCW permit.

Fingering printing everyone who gets a firearm and not permitting them to take that firearm home until that check comes back is a good idea and I’m a gun lover. And yes, close the gun show loop hole. I own assault weapons and various other guns that I use for sport shooting and if it takes enacting those types of laws to keep my right to possess arms, then I am for them.

And finally, my heart goes out those killed in the last tragedy as well as all the others. They didn’t have to happen but trying to make guns illegal is not going to do anything.

Just ask Mexico.
