After the Marjory Stoneman tragedy students and parents nationwide called for a ban on assault weapons. Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS) and Walmart (WMT) have both placed restrictions on gun purchases through their stores. President Donald Trump called for a ban on bump stocks used to turn guns into semi-automatic weapons. He held off on pushing to ban assault rifles, instead recommending that teachers be armed in schools. This is the dumbest idea the Shock Exchange has ever heard of and is difficult to take seriously.
The scary part about the Marjory Stoneman shooting was that it could trigger a copycat incident. It appears the copycat incidents have arrived.
