Gun “safety” bills are currently under legislative review in Minnesota as they are in many states across the country. But there is some adamant opposition on both sides of the isle up there fostered by a huge turnout of citizens opposed to such unconstitutional laws and so it didn’t look as if anything was going to pass.
“After the Sandy Hook shooting, a lot of folks thought gun safety bills might have a good chance of passing in Minnesota.
But for three days straight last week, hundreds of people packed legislative hearing rooms to oppose a series of gun safety bills.
The unexpectedly large opposition makes it harder for any of the gun safety bills to pass. Meanwhile, advocates of the bills say their state of the union is not good.” CBS News
That was yesterday. Today, the gun grabbers got a blessing in the form of Nhan Lap Tran, a cool calculated shooter with apparently no motive and a semi-automatic handgun on a random high profile killing spree. Guess how the legislators will vote now.
“He was just walking diagonally down the middle of the street. Then he turned toward me and just started firing,” the woman said. “He was just walking, not even running… It was crazy.” Raw Story
Oakdale police said the gunman is a local resident who apparently was shooting randomly at people who were driving or sitting in vehicles. Investigators were questioning him Monday night, but no clear motive for the shootings has been identified.” Fox News
No, no motive. Maybe it was SSRIs, huh Rivero?
Or maybe it was that little legislative snafu.Can you say “Amerithrax and the Patriot Act”?
Either way, they aren’t messing around with the obvious connections so the police chief jumps right out and gets control of the narrative right off the bat:
“It’s a horrible situation and certainly lends itself to the concern we have about gun control and all the other kinds of issues being addressed right now throughout the country,” Oakdale Police Chief Mike Sullivan told Fox. Citi Pages
It’s not enough for the police chief to take the time out of his busy day to say something about the 9 year-old kid who got gunned down in his fair city. No, he’s got to bring gun control into the mix before the kid’s parents can reclaim his little body.
I am reminded of Hillary Clinton telling Gadhafi that more Libyans were going to die until he stepped down and handed over their country to her and her neoliberal scavengers.
It seems to be the same thing here. More kids will be killed in these random shootings until we give up and hand over our 2nd amendment rights and any weapon we might have that accepts more than one musket ball at a time.
If these animals will kill kids in other countries to get what they want, what makes us so special that they won’t do the exact same thing here?
