9. That incident showed that arming churches worked.

A trained security staff for protection proved to be effective. That doesn't mean that encouraging an armed population makes our society safer. I think we need to use common sense when it comes to Second Amendment rights. Sensible gun laws including universal background checks for gun purchases, extreme risk protection orders (also called red flag laws), gun licensing, assault-weapons bans and bans on high-capacity magazines are what most people want. I admit I am uncomfortable when I see someone walking around ANYWHERE with a gun openly (open carry) and will leave as soon as possible. Nothing at all reassuring to be around a group of "Ammosexuals" ( A person obsessed with owning guns; a zealous supporter of the right to bear arms) and the politicization of guns just adds to our problem.---Those "heroes" that protected the church deserve praise for their response but I do not think they would be singing ‘Gunbaya,’ which is like ‘Kumbaya’ with shooting after such a sad event. Like everything else in this wacky world, we need to use common sense when it comes to gun laws.
