I’m failing to grasp the logic of the “Christchurch was awesome” crowd:
“New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced Thursday that the country would ban the sale of all assault rifles and semi-automatic guns, less than a week after a shooter opened fire at two mosques in Christchurch, killing 50 people.
“Today I am announcing that New Zealand will ban all military-style semi-automatic weapons. We will also ban all assault rifles,” Ardern said at a press conference, according to The Guardian.
“We will ban all high capacity magazines. We will ban all parts with the ability to convert semi-automatic or any other type of firearm into a military-style semi-automatic weapon. We will ban parts that cause a firearm to generate semi-automatic, automatic or close to automatic gunfire,” she continued. …”
Here’s what I keep hearing from these people:
1.) Yang is going to take away our guns.
2.) Mass shootings are an awesome way to accelerate the collapse of civilization.
Isn’t this the primary reason that gun control is advancing though? The same can be said of the destruction of Confederate monuments after the Dylann Roof shooting. Civilization isn’t anywhere close to collapsing, but we have fewer guns and Confederate monuments now.
Note: I’ve noticed that coming off that three day fast has made me vastly more productive.
