(PartiallyPolitics.com) – The National Rifle Association has had two legislative wins for gun owners only a day after a school shooting in Nashville, Tennessee which resulted in the death of three children and three adults.
The gun lobby organization had a win after a hearing on a law in Colorado determined that the ban on semi-automatic firearms needed to be delayed. In a separate case in Nebraska, a law determined that people would be allowed to carry concealed handguns without a permit.
Both of these wins for the NRA come after 28-year-old Audrey Hale, had entered the Covenant School and shot three 9-year-olds and three adult staff members on Monday. The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department identified the suspect who had entered the school carrying three guns including two assault weapons. Hale was shot by police officers at the scene. The NRA praised the police officers for shooting Hale and claimed that the enhanced school security had been a “deterrent” after the Nashville police revealed that Hale had been considering a different target but opted against it because it had “too much security.”
So far, the Democrat-led effort to prohibit the ownership and proliferation of assault weapons in Colorado has specifically called mass shootings one of the predominant reasons that assault weapons needed to be banned. As they describe in bill HB 23-1230, mass shootings are “an American epidemic that no other industrialized country experiences at remotely the same level” and stated that the ban would help provide security and peace.
