States Are Still Split on Reactions to Mass Shootings

I suppose this really isn't news that some states do not chose to add more 'restrictions', i.e. Infringements, to arms rights as a reaction to shootings and others do.  But, if you think about it, it is a good thing.

I mean, just take a look around.  It's all going to end and the arms debate will be over with out citizens having arms. Period.

  • Tennessee's Republican-led Legislature is meeting in a special session to address public safety proposals, but no new firearms restrictions are expected to be passed.
  • In Democratic-led states, more than half have enacted new laws this year that either tighten firearm restrictions or enhance school safety measures.
  • Republican-led states have taken a different approach, passing laws that strengthen gun rights, such as easing concealed carry rules and preventing restrictions on gun sales during emergencies.
