Here we go again. Another whacko NOT from the “right” legally purchases guns (with a proper background check), is not a pro-gun proponent, blames everyone besides himself for his shortcomings, and targets innocent people for murder. And then as if on cue, a victim’s parent lashes out at the NRA? While I feel horrible for this poor parent, I think that his ill-advised targeting is most likely his first step in trying to capitalize on his son’s murder by trying to set himself up as the next Mark Kelly-Gifford’s (Gabrielle Gifford’s husband) in an effort to profit from ignorant gun-grabbers’ fears. Prediction: You will see this man again calling for tighter gun control.
Is murder by a knife better than murder by a gun? Are these folks ok with those who were murdered with a knife, but enraged by those done so with a gun? Did the knife hurt less? Was the murderer more responsible because he used a knife? Or maybe they’re thinking it’s stupid to blame an inanimate knife for something a crazed murderer did. Yeah, that.
Let me be clear: there are evil people out there who are unhinged and will do evil things with a hoola hoop if that’s all that’s left for them to kill people with. Let’s not forget that this loser lived in the Communist Republic of California. There are only a couple of states that can rival Cali with stricter gun control laws. Other than completely banning guns – which will never happen – gun control whackos have pretty much gotten their way and limited innocent Americans’ ability to legally purchase firearms there. How many potential murderers in states that require unconstitutional gun registration have we heard confess “I planned to kill a bunch of people with a gun, but gosh it’s just too hard to buy a gun, so I decided not to”? Ever?
So what’s a proper solution? I have it: WE NEED MORE CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT HOLDERS! CCW holders in most states have to be fingerprinted, take a day long class, and pass rigorous FBI background checks before being considered for a CCW permit. How’s that for “universal”!
Are CCW holders safer and more responsible than those who aren’t? Yes. People with concealed carry permits are 5.7 times less likely to be arrested for violent offenses than the general public.
If only one of this nut job’s roommates had been a concealed carry permit holder it’s possible and probable that NO ONE would have been murdered and that this would be a story about a successful CCW holder foiling a crime rather than a murder spree and having to hear an opportunistic father blame something that could double as a paperweight for his son’s horrible death.
