Another school shooting and one thing that we can most agree upon, NOTHING WILL CHANGE~

Gun sales have become politicized to a great degree,” he said. “Gun purchases recently have been made not just because someone wants a new product but to make a statement; not just because of fears that there might be tighter regulation but also to make a statement against Obama. (quoted)

So Pit Bulls bit a child, they have banded most breeds of Pit Bulls.
Cigarettes have been proven to cause cancer and dangerous to live so they ban Cigarettes
They have researched the dangers to the lives of young drivers while Texting and driving so they have banned Texting while driving
Same can be said for Driving and drinking or after one had been drinking and yes THEY BANNED that too-Then there was the dreaded driving without seat belts, much was made about the safety of unstrapped children in cars…BANNED

Smoking in cars with young children can cause harm to those children so in many if not all areas that has now been BANNED.
Once we use to ride bicycles and motorcycles without an Helmet, this too was deemed dangerous so it was BANNED.

The swings in the Parks, the Jolly jumpers, the small toys, the windshield that use to shatter into dangerous pieces, Children clothing with strings, all, BANNED, BANNED, BANNED, BANNED and BANNED.

Lead in paint, in pencils in anything, mercury in fillings, asbestos in building all BANNED, BANNED, BANNED and BANNED.

Now let us place every company whose gun has been used in a crime at risk of ligiation and let us see just how long it will take to have INSTANT gun laws.

The Trump slump’: Remington files for bankruptcy as gun sales tumble
With Trump in the White House, America’s gun manufacturers are in trouble after a golden era under Barack Obama

[“For 200 years, Remington has been one of the most famous names in guns, supplying arms to soldiers in the civil war, both world wars and to generations of gun enthusiasts. Now it has met its match: the gun-friendly presidency of Donald Trump. After a golden era of sales under Barack Obama, America’s gun manufacturers are in trouble. Sales have tumbled, leaving the companies with too much stock on their hands and falling revenues. The crunch claimed its biggest victim this week when Remington filed for bankruptcy.

The move does not mean the end. Remington is using the US’s chapter 11 bankruptcy law to offload $700m of its $950m in debt, and to restructure the company. But it does underscore the level of distress in the industry.

In December, American Outdoor Brands, the owner of Smith & Wesson, reported that its profits had fallen 90% year over year, from $32m to just $3.2m. Sales fell 36%. Last October, Sturm Ruger, the US’s largest firearm manufacturer, announced its quarterly revenues had fallen 35%. Both companies will report their latest results shortly but neither is expected to announce a dramatic increase in sales.”]

[“They call it the Trump slump,” said Robert Spitzer, a professor at the State University of New York at Cortland and the author of five books on guns.
“Gun sales have become politicized to a great degree,” he said. “Gun purchases recently have been made not just because someone wants a new product but to make a statement; not just because of fears that there might be tighter regulation but also to make a statement against Obama.”

With Trump in the White House, said Spitzer, gun sales had sharply defaulted to their long-term trend of declining ownership rates.

“Gun ownership has been declining since the 1970s and there are now fewer gun owners than ever,” said Spitzer. Fewer people are hunting, younger people are less interested in gun ownership and the gun industry has had little success in its attempts to appeal to women and minorities.

The US has the highest rate of gun ownership in the world with 88 guns for every 100 people. But just 3% of the population owns an average of 17 guns each, with an estimated 7.7 million super-owners in possession of between eight and 140 guns apiece.

The surge of gun purchases under Obama was largely driven by sales to existing gun owners. Sales spiked on Obama’s re-election and after his calls for new laws in the wake of tragedies like the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012, which claimed the lives of 20 children and six adults.

Remington, owned by Cerberus Capital Management, made the Bushmaster AR-15 style rifle that was used in the Connecticut shooting. The company is being sued by the parents of the victims in the Connecticut supreme court.

After the shooting, Cerberus, whose billionaire chief executive Stephen Feinberg was a major Trump supporter, came under pressure from its investors to sell Remington.”]

Now let us see what differences would have arisen from this most recent of devastating tragedy
