Gun control activists say these efforts are manipulative and take advantage of a national tragedy.
Gun control advocates are never manipulative and never take advantage of national tragedies... like the Columbine SSRI-induced massacre, for instance. </sarcasm>
People who don't have firearms are like
people who don't own fire extinguishers and first aid kits:
Gun control activists say these efforts are manipulative and take advantage of a national tragedy. "It's a very cynical exercise," said Luis Tolley, state legislative director for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. "We know if they succeed they'll try to eliminate all restrictions. The objective is to let people carry a gun wherever they want any time they want."
Who is doing the manipulating? Terrorists? People are buying guns with their own free will and desire for self-preservation. Gun control groups ALWAYS take advantage of tragedies to reach their objective. We know that if YOU succeed, you'll try to eliminate all guns. So what is your point Luis??? What a bunch of hypocrites.
"Anytime there has been an upsurge of crime or a belief Americans are less safe there's a certain tendency for gun purchases to increase," said Robert Spitzer, a gun-control expert at the State University of New York in Cortland. "People want to do something even though there is no direct connection between that action and the war against terrorism."
Wait until we have suicide bombers in the United States. When a CCW license holder kills one of these guys, then maybe you'll see the connection.

"The objective is to let people carry a gun wherever they want any time they want."
Well, I guess they have to be right every once in a while. So what's wrong with me carrying a gun wherever I want any time I want? I have no criminal record. Are you afraid I might shoot somebody who does have a criminal record, and is taking action to extend his criminal record?
