Shootings in Colorado and Nebraska Reminds Us of the Cost of Assault Weapons in Civilian Hands
"We are saddened by the recent shootings that left four people murdered and four more wounded at a missionary training center and a church in Arvada and Colorado Springs, Colorado. This follows on the heels of the shooting in the Omaha, Nebraska mall where eight people were murdered and five wounded. Our sympathy and prayers go out to all of the family and friends who are grieving.
Having a military-style assault rifle with high-capacity ammunition clips, enabled two troubled young men to kill and injure innocent people quickly and efficiently. Allowing the easy acquisition and possession of military-style weapons like this is foolhardy and the results are tragic."
Of course they neglect to mention how one shooter was stopped while the other continued, the fact that the Omaha shooting involved a non-AWB covered firearm (not an "Assault Rifle"), nor that no concrete information has been released on the CO shooters weapons. Cho was not armed w/ an "Assault Weapon" and managed to kill many more people. Why? A "Gun Free Zone" and a slow response time by the authorities.
Disingenuous to the last.
