Father Of Girl Murdered In Tucson Shooting Says He Doesn’t Want New Laws As A Result

No new laws or restrictions of freedoms says John Green, father of Christina Taylor Green who was murdered in Tucson on Saturday by Jarred Loughren.

Compelling for the father’s grief, but also his presence of mind in the midst of tragedy.

    Isn’t it remarkable that one of the people who has the most right to be emotional and overreact has called for logic and restraint. I applaud him.

    It seems like that is the Dem solution for everything. If shootings and assassinations become commonplace, then it make be necessary to consider legislation. Seems like the first thing legislators do is, pass a law to prevent another occurrence an of isolated incident. These over-reactions deprive only law abiding citizens of personal liberty, freedom and usually property.

    Unintended consequences? More like never waste a crisis, manufactured or real .

    Not a law that could have stopped it. Someone mentioned that one Walmart wouldn’t sell him ammo because of his actions but then he went to another.

    This poor man has lost his precious child and he is probably riding an emotional roller-coaster that most of us couldn’t handle, and yet he takes the time to be a voice of reason. My prayers are with you and your family Mr. Green. May God comfort you in your time of grief.

    It’s sad that Fox News would use this families tragedy to set forth their political agenda. This is shameful and they should respect this incident and tragedy more than to use this situation to support their political views.
