Tucson, AZ—The gun rights haters are quickly moving in high gear to demonize American’s right to self-defense. They blame a certain Glock 9MM semi-automatic pistol and not the deranged Hitler and Marx aficionado, Jared Lochner who used it to inflict the carnage.
Lochner was in obvious dire need of mental health treatment when he lied on the federal gun purchase form slightly more than a month earlier. Where was the concern about Lochner’s bizarre behavior over the last several years?
Lochner was taken to the murder scene by a taxi cab, but had he been behind the wheel of a 3,000 car he could have inflicted as much death and destruction by driving into the crowd. Lochner could also have employed a single gallon of gasoline like what was used by another maniac that destroyed the Happyland Social Club in New York killing 100 people in the process.
Gun rights haters are overly obsessed with firearms to the point of phobic mental Illinois. They are irrational perhaps because they are fearful that they cannot control their own murderous or suicidal impulses.
Hundreds of millions of Americans are armed with firearms every day and using them to murder never enters their minds. Nearly every American has total and constant control over planes, trucks, cars, toxic substances, knives, hammers, golf clubs and baseball bats without a thought of assault or murder.
Criminals are the problem not inanimate objects that can be used for mayhem.
