There are some people who believe the #NeverAgain movement is getting too much mainstream attention compared to BLM.
After all, African Americans make up 47% of crime victims in a country where they are ~15% of the population. 91% of those victims were killed by another African American.
Yet, because 17 people were tragically killed in a school shooting the media and left-wing is again pushing for weapons bans against law-abiding citizens, when in Chicago there were 286 shootings and 78 slayings through the first two months of 2018.
Because the entire media has thrown away facts, we can understand that this is part of an agenda to disarm law-abiding citizens, not stop gun murder.

It’s not a ban, and it’s not the answer to mass shootings
“This is the worst kind of gun control. Any measure that preserves the ability of criminals to access guns while restricting the access of law-abiding Americans is a measure that fundamentally impairs the very purpose of the Second Amendment. For the law-abiding, the existing stock of tens (hundreds?) of millions of weapons and magazines would instantly become more expensive. Yet with the slightest premeditation, a criminal could easily circumvent the ban. It’s a simple matter, in fact, to make your own high-capacity magazine.
Moreover, it’s sheer speculation that a ban on so-called assault weapons would reduce mass shootings, reduce gun suicides, or reduce overall gun violence. Rifles are rarely used in “normal” gun crimes (blunt objects and fists kill more people), and you don’t need an AR-15 to kill yourself (rifle suicides are rare). And as ample, grim experience shows, you don’t need an AR-15 to commit a horrific mass killing. America’s worst school shooting — the Virginia Tech massacre — was committed with handguns, and the list of deadly handgun shootings is long and sad.
Mass shooters are among the most committed criminals in the entire United States. They often fantasize about their attacks for years and plan them for months. They can find an AR-15. Yet an AR-15 isn’t an indispensable weapon for a spree killer. They have options.”
