3 Mass Shootings Gun Laws Didn’t Stop

Has anybody noticed the total abject failure of gun control laws, especially in the past few news cycles? Three examples spring to mind.

*The high-profile “Planned Parenthood shooting” in Colorado

*The mass shooting at San Bernardino, California, at a facility for disabled adults

*In New Orleans, a shooting at a playground left 17 children wounded. That no one was killed outright was not the shooter’s fault.

So who did these shootings?

Colorado: A kook who lived alone in a shack in the woods, and once identified himself as a woman. He looks kind of like the Unabomber, if you remember him.

California: A Muslim and his Muslim wife, and a third shooter who has not yet been identified.

New Orleans: Gangs, of course. The first suspect arrested and charged is a 32-year-old career criminal whose rap sheet includes any number of violent crimes. ( http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/11/29/new-orleans-park-shooting-suspect-held/76547580/ ) I have linked to a USA Today article because for some reason which I’m sure you can’t possibly imagine, most of the nooze media haven’t been talking about this one.

What do we learn from these shootings?

Lunatics do not obey gun control laws.

Muslims who wish to kill the infidel do not obey gun laws.

Career criminals do not obey gun laws. In fact, they don’t obey laws, period.

History lesson: The purpose of the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights, the right to bear arms, is to protect the American people from their government, should it ever have tyrannical designs.

Oh, well, we know that will never happen, don’t we?

Gun laws only disarm the peaceable and law-abiding. The killers among us ignore them.

Right, Chicago?

    I think it’ll get harder and harder to take guns away as these shootings keep occurring. I mean, the police got to the shooting in San Bernardino in record time, and still 14 people were killed and 17 wounded, and it took them hours to find that SUV. Yeah, let’s just all wait on the police to rescue us …
