Still Too Soon?

Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie: 'Now is the time for this country to have a real conversation on sensible gun control laws'.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions:  'This situation that we're seeing just cannot continue'.

Sheriff Scott Israel: 'I'm going to be very animated about what I think this country can do to prevent future tragedies'.

Governor Rick Scott: 'The violence has to stop. We cannot lose another child in this country to violence in a school'.

Florida Senator Bill Nelson: 'Sandy Hook, Pulse nightclub, Fort Lauderdale airport, Las Vegas and now Parkland, Florida - when is this going to stop?"

Senator Chris Murphy: 'Don't tell me tomorrow isn't the appropriate time to debate gun violence'.

but...

Florida Senator Marco Rubio: 'It is too soon to debate whether tighter gun laws could have stopped it. You should know the facts of that incident before you run out and prescribe some law that you claim could have prevented it'.
It remains to be seen whether the US Congress will act to introduce tougher gun control after this latest shooting but i'm guessing not so if you missed this one don't worry, there will be another mass shooting of children coming to America shortly.

You don't need to confiscate guns, there are plenty of things the Government could do to make gun ownership too expensive, too difficult or just plain too much of a hassle.

The government ( not NRA friendly trump) will have to be subtle and chip away at it as not to scare the natives, make owning a gun an expensive and difficult chore.
