PROGUN Statement on Las Vegas Shooting

In the wake of the act of a dernaged gunman who killed 50 people and wounded 500 more in Las Vegas, again the debate rages as to who or what is to blame for this. The easy scapegoat is to blame the gun(s). But the logic of doing so, seems to beg the issue that we likewise blame the truck used by the terrorist to run over crowds of people or the plane used to ram into the World Trade center and kill thousands. Worse, some even lay blame on other innocent law abiding citizens who likewise own the same or similar implements, who have never violated the law - as culprits or conspirators for this tragedy.
PROGUN has always stood for an on behalf of law abiding and responsible gun owners. The act of a deranged madman is not an act of responsible gun ownership; it is lunacy. In the same manner, the acts of a drunk driver who kills another a sheer act of irresponsibility, does not, and should reflect on the billion or so other safe and careful licensed car drivers. Neither should the car used be blamed for the act of the drunk driver, nor should such act result in the cancellation of all other driver's licenses of other safe and responsible drivers.
If mental and pyschological health issues are not addressed or resolved in America, then the acts of deranged and mentally unstable people will continue, whether through the use of firearms or other instruments or implements. More so, criminals and terrorists who do not respect nor obey laws, will always find ways to acquire illegal weapons, and use them.
