As expected. Rep. Hartzler notes that "guns don't kill people, people kill people. And the following:
"We need to look at the causes of these tragedies and see if we can address them. Banning any type of guns is not the way to go. A police officer in Warrensburg e-mailed me that most murders are with knives, bare hands and things like baseball bats."Eliminating one particular form will not stop people who are intent on doing that. In fact, it makes victims more vulnerable because they won't have guns to defend themselves. It would be the totally wrong approach to this very sensitive issue."
