USA – -(Ammoland.com)- In the aftermath of the Parkland shooting, there’s been a fierce debate on how to best protect our schools. This conversation often arises after school shootings, and undoubtedly, gun control comes up as one of the “solutions” for protecting our schools. Other measures are of course brought up; The ideas of hardening our school with things like metal detectors, more secure entrances, etc. but more often than not the proposal for gun control often takes center stage.
Unfortunately, when these gun control measures are brought up, they are often marketed as “common sense” or “reasonable.”
I wouldn’t blame those who don’t know much about firearms for thinking that these gun control measures they hear about seem reasonable; they’re meant to sound reasonable. But despite the amount of coverage the topic of gun control gets from the media, rarely do they ever go into detail on what the specific gun control legislation or bills actually say.
