Firearms Training Center Expects Uptick After Texas Mass Shooting

BOSTON (CBS) –Massachusetts has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation but that does not mean everyone in the state is against guns.

At the Boston Firearm Training Center, another mass shooting means more business.

“Another one again, so I’m going to get busy again because when people get scared, they want to be able to protect themselves,” explained owner Tom Cheffro.

He said what happened the mass shooting in a South Texas church is tragic but from years of experience teaching people how to use firearms safely and responsibly, he does not believe stricter gun laws is the answer.

“There’s only one way to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun,” said Cheffro.

On Monday, President Trump commented that the massacre in Texas was “a mental health problem” and not a “guns situation.”

Massachusetts U.S. Representative Seth Moulton had a different opinion.

“It’s another absolutely senseless tragedy,” he said. “Universal background checks, ensuring that everybody who buys a gun goes through the same background check. It’s common sense.”

    There are over 370 “mental disorders” listed in the latest version of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.) The list includes “Tobacco Addiction Disorder” among other equally mundane and ridiculous so-called “mental illnesses.”

    If the DSM is the standard by which politicians wishes to remove our rights to own guns, then I’d guess 90% of the American people could probably be classified with a mental disorder of one kind or another.

    BEWARE, BEWARE
