Anti-gun advocates use shooting near Texas A&M to push for gun control
Well, that didn’t take long. Just as we saw in the wake of the tragic shootings in Aurora, Colorado, and Oak Creek, Wisconsin, the Left is seizing today’s shooting near Texas A&M to push for stricter gun control laws:
@weywerdSun CNN reporting another shooting, near Texas A&M. How many? One a week? Two a week? How many til people DEMAND gun control?

How many shootings have to happen before we start taking gun control seriously? Prayers with Texas A&M

Reports of a shooting with fatalities at A&M university in Texas. Another tragedy but NRA & the ‘right to bear arms’ won’t be challenged

Shameless and disgusting.
Citizens in favor of the right to bear arms countered the liberal anti-gun feeding frenzy:
Aurora, Wisconsin, and now TX A&M. I guess I need to learn how to protect my family. Who wants to teach me the way of the gun? @gawilkey ?

Why do libs use every random shooting as an excuse for gun control like at Texas A&M. I don't use every lib as a reason to support abortion.

Tragedy, but this Texas A&M University proves that you just need to arm EVERYONE and america needs to take a chill out pill we are wound up.

Yeah gun control works because we know that criminals and crazy people obey laws – my little bro works at Texas A&M glad he has his CHL!

Because criminals obey the law. RT @mikeboyceesq: Aurora. Wisconsin. Texas A&M. Every week a new argument is made for US gun law reform.

When will liberals learn that it’s possible to confront a horrific event and mourn the loss of life without politicizing? In responding to this shooting and so many others in this way, the Left disgraces itself and belittles the victims and their loved ones. There is a time for gun policy discussion; this isn’t it. To the Left, the Texas A&M shooting is but a means to an end: revoking our Constitutional right to defend ourselves. Exploiting tragedies does nothing to help liberals’ cause; it only exposes their desperation and refusal to view people as more than political tools. Gun control is indeed just about control, the defense of life be damned.
Ed. note: Though we stated in this post and here that the shooting did not, in fact, take place on the Texas A&M campus, our original headline referring to today’s event as the “Texas A&M shooting” may have been misleading to our readers. We apologize for any confusion and have updated the headline accordingly.
