The horrible school shooting tragedy has sparked outrage across the country. Despite the tragedy, the rally concert for the National Rifle Association was still scheduled for May 28th. The show was eventually cancelled due to a lack of actors.
A man at NRA convention recently told @TheGoodLiars that hammers are used to kill more people than guns. So they looked up the stats in front of him. The person was brutally roasted for his comment online.
One user wrote: “I was on the debate team in college. Day 1 we were told never debate religion, politics, abortion, gun control. People are so entrenched in their beliefs (either way) that you can’t have rational debates with facts that will allow for either side to consider the other argument.”
Another chimed in saying: “Part of the problem is desensitisation to the effects of gun massacres. I understand the bodies of the Texas victims had to be identified via DNA. That means their bodies were mutilated beyond recognition. THAT’S what doesn’t register with most people.”
A third one commented: “Don’t even need to look that up to know he was wrong, how could he ever believe that was true smh lol.”
A fourth user pointed out: “I think the stat they are talking about that get quoted is that “hammers kill more people than ar-15”. Which I think is correct. But people change the wording or get confused.”
Tragedy struck recently as 19 children and 2 adults were killed after a gunman opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday. The United States remains shocked after this incident and the incident sent shockwaves for good reason.
Ten people were killed and several others were left injured when a white supremacist went on a shooting rampage in Buffalo, New York earlier this month. The incident resulted in the arrest of 18-year-old Payton Gendron. Before carrying out his attack, 18-year-old wrote a 180-page screed about “replacement theory.” Guns have claimed more lives than it can be imagined and things are not getting better with time.
