In one of the most restrictive gun states we still read stories like this.
Authorities say a Newark man has been arrested in the death of his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son, who was shot in the head.
Police and the Essex County prosecutor’s office say 27-year-old Wakir Bryant was arrested Friday evening on aggravated manslaughter charges in the death of Mikhy Robinson.
An official familiar with the investigation says Mikhy’s mother was asleep Friday morning and awoke to see her boyfriend holding the bleeding toddler and saying repeatedly: “I’m so sorry.”…Officials say Bryant has a lengthy criminal history, including weapons offenses. It was not immediately known whether Bryant had a lawyer. Bail has been set at $1 million, according to a statement issued by police and prosecutors.
It would appear that New Jersey is one of those states that allows felons to carry firearms, because I know a ton of law-abiding gun owners from the Garden State who cannot legally get a permit to carry. Also just BUYING guns in that state is a royal pain in the ass.
Well a pain in the ass if you aren’t a murderous criminal. This is what gun control looks like.
BTW this is another “Gun Death” the antis will cite when demanding more gun control. Does that sound like “Common Sense” to you?
