(USNewsMag.com) – Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe advocated on April 10 that the United States do something about the ease with which citizens may get assault rifles and other such weapons after the latest mass shooting.
McCabe noted that this mass shooting differs from the one they discussed before. However, each shooting is different in some way. It’s possible that each mass murderer is driven by unique factors, struggles with unique mental health issues, has unique grudges, and is an entirely unique human being. However, there is also one striking parallel; the availability of easy, legal access to powerful military weaponry is comparable.
Four people were killed and nine others were injured when a shooter entered the Louisville, Kentucky Old National Bank on April 10 and began firing. As reported by the Metro Police Department of Louisville, the shooter used a rifle. However, no details were provided on the specific kind of firearm used.
Nonetheless, McCabe has drawn judgments without all the facts and is continuing to advocate for gun control.
The M4A1 carbine is the principal weapon used by the United States armed forces, and it fires automatically. As seen on the ATF’s website, the 1934 National Firearms Act (NFA) rigorously regulates such rifles, with an amendment from 1986 barring the addition of newly bought fully automatic firearms to the ATF’s NFA register.
Semi-automatic rifles, AR-15-style, often referred to as “high-powered military weapons,” require just a single stroke of the trigger to discharge a single cartridge. Millions of conscientious Americans lawfully use these firearms for target practice, home protection, and hunting.
According to McCabe, the easy access that every American has to these very dangerous weapons is the common thread that ties together their issues with violence involving guns. He thinks that they must deal with the facts.
A report by an inspector general accusing McCabe of lying regarding leaks to the press led to his dismissal from his position as FBI deputy director in 2018, but a subsequent legal settlement reinstated him in 2021.
