In light of the most recent school shooting that occurred at an Oxford, Michigan High School, Dems are calling for more gun control.
November 30th, a 15-year-old sophomore at a Michigan high school was taken into custody on Tuesday after allegedly shooting and killing three students (now four students) and injuring eight others, including one teacher, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.
Of course, Democrats everywhere are using this opportunity to try to advocate for more gun control.
Local news outlet click on Detroit has more on the story:
OXFORD, Mich. – Many in Oxford keep talking about what’s next, part of that discussion involves possible new gun laws in Lansing.
That led to a spirited discussion Monday night at a meeting with Rep. John Reilly (R-Oakland Township). Many of the few dozen who attended the discussion were there to listen to Reilly’s thoughts on guns.
Frustrations boiled over a few times at the open forum. Much of the frustration was directed at Reilly. Some parents of Oxford High School students had direct questions about his stance on gun laws going forward.
Reilly said he does support common sense gun laws, but he’s not a fan of creating new laws. He said he does not support creating a law that would require people to keep their guns locked up inside the home.
There was talk of a bill that was voted on two days after the shooting. An amendment was added by a neighboring state representative to bump new funding for school resource officers from $10 million to $50 million. Reilly voted no. He said the budget was already out of control and he would have voted no at $10 million. He said in his school district, schools already a resource officer.

Michigan prosecutor Karen McDonald is not playing.
She is calling out the parents, the school and the “woefully inadequate Michigan gun laws.”

The four students who were shot and killed at Oxford High School were too young to vote.
But they paid the price for our country's weak gun laws and the weak Republicans who refuse to act.
We must do better.

Here are some of the Dem supporter responses that are absolute trash and outrageously beside the point.
This week in white privilege:
15 year old Michigan student gets caught drawing violent images depicting murders. He gets a tepid talking to, returns to class and shoots 11 kids, murdering 4.

As a survivor of #GunViolence and now trauma surgeon — seeing these headlines has me sick to my stomach.
The same people who talk about the sanctity of life, often are against common sense gun laws.
What happened to right for these children to Live! #oxfordhighschool

so banning abortion will stop abortions but better gun laws won't reduce gun violence at all…

Excuse me? What does white privilege and abortion have to do with this? Absolutely nothing.
What we should really be discussing is the mental health problem in America.
There is tons of evidence teachers and parents KNEW about this ahead of time, yet still did nothing about it.
This isn’t a “gun problem” it is a mental health issue and people not taking that seriously enough.
Let’s consider the facts emerging from the Oxford High School case.
Reports indicate that in addition to buying the handgun for the alleged shooter, the parents were informed on the morning of the shooting that their son had made alarming drawings of a violent shooting and that otherwise evidenced deeply disturbed thinking. That the mother texted her son not to “do it” after the shooting hit the news, and the father immediately checked the whereabouts of the missing firearm and contacted police.
More from Fox News about the schools knowledge ahead of time before the shooting:
Superintendent of Oxford Community Schools Tim Throne described Oxford High School as a “war zone” Thursday, two days after 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley allegedly fired at least 30 rounds in the hallways, killingfour classmates and injuring seven others, including a teacher.
Crumbley, who is facing terrorism, murder and other charges, recorded videos the night before the shooting in which he “talked about shooting and killing students the next day at Oxford High School,” Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Tim Willis said Wednesday.
The sophomore’s behavior was concerning enough that school officials called Crumbley’s parents to the school for a meeting on Tuesday just a few hours before the shooting, but Throne said that discipline wasn’t warranted.
“There’s been a lot of talk about the student that was apprehended, that he was called up into the office and all that kind of stuff. No discipline was warranted. There are no discipline records at the high school,” Throne said in a video message.
“Yes, this student did have contact with our front office, and yes, his parents were on campus Nov. 30. Again, I will take any and all questions at a later time, but that’s not now. This is as much information as we can give you today.”
Crumbley met with school officials on Monday as well due to behavioral issues in the classroom, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said.
“We’re also hearing that there were rumors that someone had said something or knew something. None of that came to us until today,” Bouchard said on Tuesday. “So if there is information, that is the kind of thing we need to know and get looped into.”
There you have it, regardless of whether or not you think the parents should be charged in this, there’s no denying they (along with the school staff) had reason to believe the suspect was mentally disturbed.
But what did they do about it? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Instead of gun laws why don't we have a serious conversation about mental health? pic.twitter.com/KXpDZwr5Xs

Also, despite the media-sanctioned, persistent-lie and the predictable, subsequent push for stricter gun laws— virtually all of gun homicide is committed by people who are breaking the law.
Nowhere in America can a 15 year old legally purchase a fire arm, or murder others.

The NRA is right…handgun controls do little to stop criminals from obtaining handguns. – Josh Sugarman, Coalition Against Gun Violence

The only gun laws that can prevent mass shootings are those (like Constitutional Carry) that empower law-abiding citizens to defend themselves.
92% of mass shootings take place in "gun-free zones" — which would be better classified as "unarmed victim zones."

Less gun control laws, more mental health awareness, more responsible gun owning people and more action taken when someone is clearly NOT in the right state of mind.
