Three people killed by a nutjob via stabbing, followed afterwards by three people killed by same nutjob via shooting.
The remaining are injuries caused by a nutjob in a car.
And somehow….the NRA is to blame for all these deaths and injuries? Has the Left/Prog/Lib portion of the citizenry really detached itself from reality to such point that they place the blame for all these deaths on those people who support what is Constitutionally protected?
I find it telling that an avid anti-gun family (the Rodgers’) did nothing more than call the police when they discovered a video on You Tube a scant 13 hours before the rampage. Its as if they thought the Police could do anything BEFORE a crime took place.
Is this what we’ve become? Where the majority of people don’t even know what the purpose of Police is?
Police are the folk who uphold the Law, and who bring those people who break the law before a Court, so as to be tried by a jury of their peers. The Police could NOT HAVE DONE A DAMN THING to stop this kid. The police acted appropriately…they were made aware of the kids mental problem, they were made aware of a disturbing You Tube vid, they went to his place WITHOUT a warrant (there wasn’t, at that moment, enough probable cause for even a Liberal California Judge to bend the rules enough to issue a warrant), the kid let them in and sweet-talked his way through the intervention, and the cops left. And they left, citing the fact that the boy was extremely polite, seemed very shy, and was fully co-operative.
In other words, the police felt that there was no threat.
Also, the Rodgers family are so anti-gun that it never occurred to them that their little darling would EVER get a gun for himself? I mean, they set the perfect example, didn’t they? They are loudly-and-proudly anti-gun, they NEVER EVER had a gun in their house, NEVER EVER let their kids handle guns, etc.
I guess the NRA is to blame for their failed parenting too?
This rampage by a mentally disturbed individual took place in the State that is given an “A” rating for *gunsense* by Moms Demand Action, Michael Bloombergs Mayors Against Guns, and the Brady Campaign. Aside from NY and NJ, California has the most restrictive gun laws in place of any other state.
So how did a mentally disturbed kid get a car with which he injured eight pedestrians….how did he get a knife and use the knife to kill three people in cold blood…and how did he get a gun?
And let this sink in…the Police responded. Since there was NO CRIME at that point in time, the Police could do NOTHING but ask the kid a few questions. The cops did everything right.
Now, I understand the grief of the father of one of the shooting victims. He lost a young man to the actions of a mentally disturbed individual.
But I find it abhorrent and offensive that this parent is blaming the NRA, Congress, and citizens who believe in guarantees of the Constitution, blaming law abiding people and the NRA for the stabbings that left three dead, and for the hit-and-runs that left eight injured. Why isn’t he blaming a fellow Liberal filmmaker who obviously didn’t take more stringent steps to make sure his mentally deranged son was placed under observation? Why isn’t he blaming the company that made the knife that killed three people in cold blood? Why isn’t he blaming BMW for manufacturing the car that left eight people hospitalized, and to the lobbyists in Washington that get tax breaks and subsidies for the companies that make these 4,000 pound death machines that mow down people in large groups?
Stop and think about that…three people killed by stabbing, three killed by shooting, and eight injured via hit-and-run in one 10 minute rampage by one disturbed individual.
Yet the NRA and guns is to blame, and the NRA and guns are the problem?
