Right after the shooting in Texas where a man opened fire at church in Sutherland Springs leaving 26 people dead, gay activists went to the Philip A. Hart Senate Office Building in Washington on Monday to demand gun control restrictions.
The group Gays Against Guns, protested by laying on the ground in front of the Senate building shouting “You’re killing us with money from the NRA!”
The group of people was laying there for approximately 10 minutes till the Capitol Police came and ordered them to stop the protest.
When they refused to get up the police officers were forced to arrest them.
The Gays Against Guns had “been planning this protest since early October in response to the Pulse Orlando shooting and Las Vegas shootings.”
June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen, an Islamic terrorist, opened fire at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 48 people, and last month Stephen Paddock carried out the mass shooting in Las Vegas killing 58 people.
After the Orlando shooting, the Democrats wouldn’t pass a stricter gun control law, but, Sen. Chris Murphy did say that the legislation wouldn’t be able to prevent Mateen from killing all those people.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat, said that no law would’ve stopped Paddock from killing the people in Las Vegas.
When CBS host John Dickerson asked if there could “have been any law passed that would’ve stopped” Paddock, “No,” she said.
“He passed background checks registering for handguns and other weapons on multiple occasions,” she added.
The Sutherland Springs gunman had several domestic violence convictions from the Air Force, and he was given a bad conduct” discharge, which enables him from purchasing a gun legally. But Air Force didn’t notify FBI of his convictions so he ended up having a rifle.
Moreover, one Christian who was carrying a gun took mater into his own hands and stopped the mass shooting on Sunday.
“He came with his (gun), and he took cover behind a car and he shot the guy — I’m not sure if it was inside the church as he was coming out — but if it wasn’t for him the guy wouldn’t have stopped,” a witness stated.
Sadly, facts like these happen to be of no value to the Gays Against Guns activists.
“GAG believes that the time has come to not only start talking about gun reforms but to start enacting them,” one activist said to The Advocate. “The phony ritual of ‘thoughts and prayers’ no longer has any credibility when there are 91 people shot to death daily and 291 mass shootings so far this year.”
