More on the recent mass shootings
A few things on the recent shootings:
1 – There are already gun control proposals shooting through Europe in light of the shooting in Germany. Because putting a big band-aid on after the fact is going to help. Also, the shooting that occurred in Germany illustrates that gun control is not particularly helpful at preventing mass murder from homicidal maniacs. Germany had licensing, governmental permission required, registries, membership requirements, and enough gun control pipe dreams to make Carolyn McCarthy soil her bloomers in excitement. But it still happened.
2 – The Brady Bunch wasted little time dancing in the blood of the dead. They were quick to point out that Alabama, with it’s low Brady Grade, was, naturally, a place where such a violent attack could occur. They never point these grades out when mass shooting occur in #1 ranked California, #9 Illinois, or NJ. And that their higher ranks correlate with where mass shootings occur and overall violent crime. And odd how they always left DC off the list even though it had the strictest gun controls. And it had a mass shooting yesterday too. As I said, mass shootings tend to come in sets.
3 – One of the criticisms I hear of gun blogs is that whenever there’s a mass shooting, we ignore it and don’t talk about it. Which is patently false (look up). I’ve covered them. Anyway, someone thought they’d pull a gotcha on Jeff and ask him that. He responds:
Both are terrible crimes committed by insane mutants. Both have nothing to do with the basic (Constitution, or God given,) RIGHT to self defense. They are crimes, as in the abuse of a right.
The wonderful Autoblog covers all things cars. They don’t blog about DUI arrests or auto-accidents. Misuse of motor vehicles are crimes that have nothing to do with covering the car and truck news of the day.
And I cover them as well. But mostly from a how current events can affect gun laws way.
