Buz Williams Biography

Title:
Former Long Beach, CA Police Sergeant
Position:
Con to the question "Should More Gun Control Laws Be Enacted?"
Reasoning:

“Let’s look at the crimes committed by Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook Elementary School killer. First, he killed his mother. Then he stole his mother’s guns… I think it is a safe bet that Lanza broke some laws transporting loaded firearms. It is almost certainly against the law to enter a school with a loaded firearm… In addition to killing 26 people, Lanza committed an undisclosed number of attempt [sic] murders, at least one burglary when he entered the school after shooting off the lock, and probably a plethora of other crimes, including but not limited to, shooting into an inhabited building, shooting within city limits and negligent firearms use. If we tighten our gun control laws, if we enact more and ‘tougher’ gun control laws, won’t that just be more, tighter and tougher laws that sociopaths can ignore? We don’t need more and/or tighter gun control.”
