One man’s crazed actions no excuse to disarm Americans

Fairfax, Va. – Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to President Joe Biden’s call to ban America’s most popular all-purpose sporting rifle.

“The murder of 10 Coloradans on the fifth anniversary of the Islamic terrorist attack in Brussels, Belgium, is no excuse for Congress to attack U.S. citizen’s right to keep and bear arms. Demagoguery aside, this tragedy points to the larger problem of hate groups within America. Disarming the rest of us due to the crazed actions of one person is akin to closing down every mosque in the United States because the shooter happened to be Muslim. Neither is acceptable and it is time those on the Left who continually attempt to exploit tragedy, to just stop.”
