We also know that one of the assailants was a sixteen-year-old girl suffering from gender dysphoria, transgenderism.
Imagine the outcry, the utter uproar, if someone were to suggest banning transgender people from possessing firearms. That’s an illogical assertion, just as it is illogical for progressive socialists to call for gun control immediately after this incident, not knowing all of the facts.
This is a teachable moment for the stuck on stupid. Address the individual who committed the crime, not an insidious ideological agenda to disarm law-abiding legal gun owners.
