The New York gunman who opened fire on four firefighters wasn’t legally allowed to own firearms
The gun control debate was ratcheted up another notch over the weekend with the horrific story of William Spengler. William Spengler set several fires in order to lure firefighters to his home and then opened fire on them, killing two and wounding two others before putting the gun to his own head.
The problem with the gun control argument is this; William Spengler could not legally own firearms because he is a convicted felon so the problem isn’t with the gun laws because he wasn’t obeying the laws anyway, he didn’t obtain the weapons legally, but rather with a judicial system which lets a man who beat his own grandmother to death with a hammer out of jail in the first place.
If somebody can explain to me how more gun control laws would have stopped a man who had no intention of following any laws from committing this vile act I would love to hear it; the only thing that could have stopped this crime is if this man were still in jail where he belonged in the first place.
Instead of looking at the true problem the cowardly ruling class politicians in Washington have decided to take the easy way out by punishing legal gun owners for the actions of criminals.
