“Gun Death” Teen Driving

This is a sad one:

Father frantically calls and texts his son about nearby car crash only to have trooper answer and tell him the teen is dead

-**Departed**, 18, was killed last Monday in a car crash in North Carolina

-**Departed**, 15, also died in the crash and her brother **REDACTED**, 17, remains in hospital with serious injuries

-Driver **REDACTED**, 16, suffered only minor injuries and has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor death and reckless driving

Brand new driver behind the wheel, driving recklessly, two are now dead, and one was seriously injured.

Happens all the time, and despite what the propaganda says, it happens MUCH more often than “Gun Death”, but “Progressives” want to get the kids out of the house, so they just go after guns.

“Gun Death” Feral Teens

A Good reason to carry a gun!

Two juveniles are in custody Sunday, suspected in the death of a man beaten with hammers on a St. Louis street.

…He was unconscious by the time officers arrived. Begic was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

“Investigation revealed the victim was traveling in his vehicle when several juveniles approached his vehicle on foot and began damaging it.

“The victim exited his vehicle and the juveniles began yelling at the victim and striking him with hammers. After the assault, the juveniles fled the scene on foot,” read an incident report.

If you are inside a car you are safer than outside the car. If people are hitting your property with hammers for no reason, they probably aren’t too worried about having a reason to hit YOU. If you are outnumbered and can escape (like by hitting the gas pedal) it’s generally the best idea, and call the police from safety.

And having a gun might have saved this man’s life…but it might have caused “Gun Death”

“Gun Death” Domestic Violence

Not always about guns:

A Canton man has been charged in the death of his 2-month-old son.

It happened during a domestic dispute at a house on 10th Street Northwest in Canton early Tuesday morning. Police said the baby was hit in the head with a ceramic coffee mug while his mother and father were fighting.

The “Gun Death” Crowd keeps crowing about the solution to domestic violence is to ban guns. I think it more has to do with the people, not the tools:

The father, 34-year-old **REDACTED**, was arrested and charged with murder, child endangering and domestic violence. He was already wanted for failure to appear at his arraignment for a theft case.

I’m sure this was his only criminal charge!

Remember 90% of all Americans Want More Gun Control!

You’d think, the amount the antis keep spouting this “Fact”, there would be some evidence. I mean, an anti-gun protest gets generally numbers in the teens, and a median age of 65. You’d think if what they were singing for they could get some friends to help them.

Miguel show some reality from Vermont

The “Grassroots” Anti-Gun PAC is nothing but a Bloomberg Sock Puppet. Really with the Brady Campaign, and the Joyce Foundation recipients really having a hard time keeping their operating budgets above water, let alone stage protests and events, it boils down to gun control in America being JUST ONE MAN!

Michael Bloomberg, and if you don’t see Bloomy’s mouth moving, the mouth you’re SEEING moving is being paid to move from his coffers!

Dunning–Kruger Skool of Journalizm

You have to wonder about “Journalists” like this. They speak from such a lofty position, but they don’t even have a trivial understanding of the issue.

The reason Adam Lanza was able to kill so many Sandy Hook Elementary School students and teachers so quickly more than two years ago was the weapon he used: A Bushmaster Model XM15-E2S semiautomatic rifle.

Of course Lanza was shooting mostly young children, he could have used a knife or a bat with equal success. Hell it was a small attack compared to this incident in China where only knives were used. Also if it was the “firepower” of the gun, why is it that this body count wasn’t as high as Virginia tech where the killer only used a pair of pistols with limed-capacity magazines? Or Hell University of Texas where most of the killings were done with a basic hunting rifle.

It is descended from weapons designed for the battlefield, and it performed like it. The assault lasted about five minutes. Police recovered 154 bullet casings discharged from the Bushmaster, fired loosely at a pace of one shot every two seconds.

I can maybe fault the author on this bit of stupidity, because the M16 and its variants are such popular guns with both military all over the world, but culturally, most people do look at an AR-15 and think “Civilian Version of the M16″ when in fact the AR-15 was first designed as a hunting and target rifle. Still In that first sentence it’s stated that the ONLY reason he was able to commit this act of murder was because he had a semi-auto rifle….yet he fired at roughly 1 shot every two seconds? I’m sure there was some rapid fire at this event, with time moving and not firing, etc, but man, what idiot directly contradicts themselves whilst being SO smug?

Now lawyers for the families of some of the victims are pursuing a lawsuit against the gun manufacturer, distributor and gun shop involved in making and selling the weapon Lanza used.
lRelated A 2nd Amendment refresher for The Times’ editorial board

The legal argument has an uphill climb. In 2005, Congress adopted the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, a shield law designed to protect makers and sellers of firearms from liability lawsuits. At the time, the gun industry was facing legal challenges by murder victims’ survivors and municipalities trying to force some accountability from those profiting by the millions of guns made and sold in the U.S.

The liability shield isn’t absolute, though. It does not protect the gun industry from lawsuits alleging “negligent entrustment or negligence,” leaving a door open to go after someone who sells a gun “for use by another person when the seller knows, or reasonably should know, the person to whom the product is supplied is likely to, and does, use the product in a manner involving unreasonable risk of physical injury to the person or others.”

Ummm, so what grounds does this lawsuit stand on?

The lawsuit, filed by the Koskoff Koskoff and Bieder firm in Bridgeport, Conn., alleges that the makers and dealers who handled that particular weapon reasonably should have known it would be used to kill a large number of people because that is exactly what the gun is designed to do. It’s a politically attractive argument for backers of gun control laws, but it’s hard to see the courts finding liability here based on “negligent entrustment” because there is nothing negligent in the legal sale of a gun. And the killer was not the person who bought the weapon, but her son, a step removed from what a gun seller could reasonably expect.

Still, I wish them luck.

Ahhh! The ever popular Frivolous grounds! I don’t wish them luck, and I hope the partners of Koskoff Koskoff and Bieder get disbarred for making a mockery of the law, and showing such insensitivity to the families who have gone though so much.

The strongest part of the lawsuit, though, might be the case it makes that such AR-15-style weapons should not be sold to civilians. The lawsuit argues that Bushmaster advertised the gun as a military weapon for civilian hands, with phrases such as “the ultimate combat weapons system,” “the uncompromising choice when you demand a rifle as mission-adaptable as you are,” and this: “Forces of opposition, bow down: You are single-handedly outnumbered.”

That’s selling combat, not self-defense, and it makes a good case for banning civilian possession of such weapons. But that ship has already sailed: The gun lobby has been very effective at heading off efforts to revive an expired assault weapon ban. That political equation isn’t likely to change in the foreseeable future.

No, idiot, the LAW OF THE LAND has made that ship sail. Technically since the creation of this country, but we needed a little clarification from Heller V DC, sorry, but guns in common lawful use cannot be restricted because of the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution. Since this is from the LA Times, and LA, in general, and California as a whole….and Blue-State America overall has gotten VERY comfortable violating the US Constitution for the veiled and unsubstantiated promise of safety.

Don’t worry, your day in court will to come.

There has been some uncertainty over whether the previous assault gun ban drove down the nation’s rate of gun violence, especially since the vast majority of gun deaths involve handguns. Regardless, it’s hard to see a future Adam Lanza — and there will be more — being as lethally effective without access to these combat weapons.

Again, dunning Kruger! This idiot couldn’t Google “School Shootings”? He admits that the Assault Weapons ban did nothing but wake up Americans to the constant sham of gun control, but the deadly factor of school shootings, and why killers specifically pick schools (weather it’s primary schools, high schools, or colleges) is because they know for a fact, that the only people carrying guns will be clearly identified by their badge and uniform.

The issue was not that Lanza stole his mom’s rifle, it was that he selected a school in the first place to go shoot random strangers, and indeed he knew he could shoot people with impunity until he heard the sirens in the parking lot, in which he then made the last shot into his own head.

But again, “Progressives” don’t care about public safety, they don’t even care about dead children or their grieving families, they just want to ban guns…ALL guns.

“Gun Death” Restraining Order

They work!

Longmont police described a “gruesome” scene inside a Pratt Street home where they say a man stabbed both his parents, killing his father and severely injuring his mother, before fatally stabbing himself late Tuesday night.

Police say the suspect, 34-year-old **REDATED**, was possibly set off after police served him a temporary protection order earlier in the day prohibiting him from seeing his 7-year-old son after the child’s mother, **REDATED**, said he had recently been “acting strange.”

I guess he didn’t go and murder the SUBJECT of the order, or the son she was seeking to protect, but didn’t help his folks. Also I guess she wasn’t paranoid about him “Acting Strange”…

Still, not a “Gun Death” so why are we even discussing this? ONLY “Gun Death” counts!

“Gun Death” Cricket

I know very little about the sport of Cricket, but I guess you can die from it:

Test batsman Phillip Hughes died in a Sydney hospital on Thursday, two days after being struck on the head by a cricket ball during a domestic first-class match. He was 25.

“It is my sad duty to inform you that a short time ago Phillip Hughes passed away,” Australian team doctor Peter Brukner said. “He never regained consciousness following his injury on Tuesday.”

So if you’re going to play an odd foreign sport, make it Curling! Or maybe any of the shooting sports, because while they DO use guns, nobody DIES from those!
