Some interesting details on the jerk who ambushed the firefighters responding to a blaze he set:
The ex-con turned sniper who killed two firefighters wanted to make sure his goodbye note was legible, typing out his desire to “do what I like doing best, killing people” before setting the house where he lived with his sister ablaze, police said.
A convicted felon! What he do?
William Spengler, 62, who served 17 years in prison for manslaughter in the 1980 hammer slaying of his grandmother,
So the “Assault weapon” only managed to double his previous score, looks like his sister was killed in the fire. Thankfully this beast took his own life, so we won’t be letting him out again. I’m kinda curious on how you get manslaughter when you kill an old woman with a hammer. I suspect it was yet another plea deal that brings murderers right back to our doorsteps.
Hey, but when monsters like this are allowed to roam about, why not blame to tool? Oh wait, are we calling for “Common Sense” Gasoline and matches control? Oh, so ONLY blame the tool that you have a political axe to grind about!
Oh and since the antis are going all “Assault Weapon” Banny, I thought I’d quote from the article:
But his intent was unmistakable when he left his flaming home carrying a pump-action shotgun, a .38-caliber revolver and a .223-caliber semiautomatic Bushmaster rifle with flash suppression, the same make and caliber weapon used in the elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn., that killed 26.
To be fair I suspect the Connecticut rifle was ban-compliant by not having the flash suppressor, which is one of those “Evil Features”….you know because cops can’t see where the shots are coming from or something….
The first police officer who arrived chased and exchanged shots with Spengler, recounting it later over his police radio.
“I could see the muzzle blasts comin’ at me. … I fired four shots at him. I thought he went down,” the officer said.
Huh, in broad daylight with a house fire going on! Its almost like the AWB of 94 was total bullshit!
