Joan Peterson has a post up about the School Shooting at Columbine. I noticed an Omission.
Unless common sense breaks out in our Congress and state legislatures, the shootings will no doubt continue. Unless we do something rather than nothing, the list of victims will continue to grow. To do nothing is not an option.
The two assholes who did the shooting were felons and under-age. Not to mention the fact that the school was a Gun-free zone. How did they get the guns? Go have a look at this page. The two pistols used were sold by young men who both served several years in prison. But what about this:
Robyn K. Anderson, friend of Dylan’s, purchased two shotguns and a 9mm rifle for the shooters, which were later used in the assault. No formal charges were brought against her as she testified that she didn’t know that they would be used in a murder spree when she gave them to Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.
I mentioned this in the comments of Joan’s post. I didn’t use my screen name or link to my blog so Joan would only go on my words not her feelings about me personally. Its been enough time and other comments have appears, I’m positive my mention of Miss. Anderson has been deemed not fit to print. And Inconvenient truth.
Miss Anderson was a friend of the two boys. They gave her money and a shopping list and sent her to a gun show to buy guns for them because they were minors, as well as felons.
Do you think she knew they were sociopaths? Do you think she knew they were building bombs? Do you think she knew their ages and why she had to buy the guns?
Joan Peterson and her coworkers at the Brady Campaign and the Joyce foundation, as well as all the anti-freedom people talk about closing the “Gunshow Loophole”, but they never seem to mention Miss Anderson and her lack of any punishment.
She was an adult woman who was given cash and orders by minor children of an anti-social nature, to buy guns for them because they legally could not do so. She complied with this, and what was her punishment?
NOTHING. (BTW there’s a really good article on her here)
That’s a major travesty and miscarriage of justice, but here’s the real kicker…why do the anti-rights advocates talk about the expansion of existing laws, but never of the people who simply walked through the law?
Do you think Joan Peterson wants criminals put in jail for breaking the law, or do you think Joan Peterson wants to tell lawful gun owners how they can and cannot conduct their business?
Do you think Joan Peterson wants to stop gang violence and avoid massacres, or do you think she just wants to stamp out legal gun ownership and gun rights?
Could their motives be any more clear?
