With the most recent mass shooting in America that we covered yesterday, the topic of gun control has yet again resurfaced. With many calling for tighter gun laws and assault rifle bans, Twitter and other social media outlets have been in a fierce and fiery debate regarding the issue.
In a USA today article published this morning, the author dives into the reason why mass shooters are increasingly using AR-15’s.
Below are some popular Tweets from both sides of the issue of gun control-
In Fla, an 18-yr-old can buy an AR-15 in a private sale w/out a background check & buy 100s of magazines & 1000s of bullets w/o so much as a driver’s license.
Those are the laws. For when the gun nuts start screaming to enforce the laws we have

If you need an AR-15 in order to shoot a deer 600 times in a minute, you are already mentally ill, and shouldn’t own a gun in the first place. #GunReformNow

Florida school shooter Nikolas De Jesus Cruz was an angry leftist.
Trump-hater, communist, pro Antifa, Islam, & CAIR – exactly the sort of person you guys inspire.
Congratulations. Now all that remains is to blame guns, Trump, & the Right.

School shootings didn’t start until after the leftists made them “gun free” zones.
For decades, leftists have been on a crusade to normalize abberant behavior. These shootings are the result of that cultural rot.
Now…leftists want to blame guns & pro 2A people.
