A Statement on the Tragedy in Florida
Gun Owners Are Ready to Have A Conversation
A high-profile mass murder and again, the nation is saddened and horrified to hear about the heinous acts of violence committed by a highly troubled young man who showed many clear signs that he needed help. It goes without saying that law-abiding gun owners abhor acts of violence, whether the offender is using a gun or not. It is our passion and our respect of an individual's life that makes us committed Second Amendment supporters. We feel for the victims, their families, and their loved ones.
San Diego County Gun Owners' job and the job of every Second Amendment organization is to have a conversation about our Second Amendment rights, not just after horrible acts of violence, but 365 days a year. We want to have a conversation about our Second Amendment protected rights throughout the year and not just when the topic makes the headlines.
So, what's standing in our way?
