Why are anti-gun activists so violent?
So, a former LAPD police officer went crazy and started shooting people. Because only the police should have guns. There’s a whole lot of WTF with this story. First, is the guy seems to be a leftist loon, spouting the media narrative. Now, I don’t really care for the game of “pin the political ideology on the nut bag” but this particular bit will be important later. His manifesto is full of praise for gun control efforts, since, I suppose, they make being a mass-murdering psychopath easier.
From reading the press, you wouldn’t know that since they are leaving his gun control support and Obama leave out of their stories and releases. Gee, I wonder why? Why, news like that getting out might shift the public opinion that the press keeps making up. A lot more here.
And the police, who are largely the shooter’s targets, have royally screwed up. First, they shot someone twice. Then they shot two people and shot at someone else (because, again, only police should have guns). Nervous police overreact. Then, this:
Officers from the Los Angeles and Torrance police departments engaged in two separate shootings Thursday morning in Torrance, Calif., reports KTLA. They had come across two different vehicles that were similar to the description of Dorner’s getaway car, a gray 2005 Nissan Titan pickup.
So, they shot someone not even posing a threat? Meanwhile, they declared war on pickup trucks.
