Monday’s Quick Hits: Bullock & Assault Weapons, & TWW Poll

The Second Amendment says we have the right to bear arms, not to bear artillery. – Robin Williams

Montana Governor Steve Bullock, a Democrat, is getting a few minutes of fame. On Sunday he told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he would support a ban on semiautomatic firearms.

The Associated Press (AP) reported that this is the first time Bullock has said he would “support a ban on some semiautomatic weapons.”

It wasn’t long before the Washington Post, and other news organizations picked up the story.

Breitbart put it this way:

Gov. Steve Bullock (D) announced Sunday that he would support prohibiting Montana residents from buying and possessing commonly owned semi-automatic firearms.

When I heard the comments, my first thought was that Bullock must have decided to never run for statewide office in Montana again.

Today’s poll asks, “Do you agree with Gov. Steve Bullock’s comments on CNN about banning assault weapons/some forms of semiautomatic weapons?”

We Are Numb

The headline kind of said it all: “Has America become numb to tragedy?”

Sadly, that headline was from an NBC News website in 2009 after a mass shooting.

The mass shootings and killings just seem to pile up here in the good ol’ USA. We can’t even keep track of them, unless it happened to someone or somewhere close to us.

Here we are in 2017, CBS News asked basically the same question, “Are Americans becoming ‘numb’ to mass shootings?”

The answer is yes.

To be quite honest, the latest mass killing at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, got to me. While I don’t know any of the 26 who were murdered I’ve attended small-town churches in my life and the thought that someone could walk in and start killing people in their house of worship sickens me. It makes me sad for our country.
