As for Japete, guys, let’s remember that Jared Loughner was obviously going whacko for over four years and people around him were either in denial or felt it was someone else’s problem.
We should all know by now that Joan’s sister was shot by her estranged husband. Its also public knowledge that her husband was a first-rate dirtbag, who was likely quite mentally disturbed.
How many holidays and get-togethers did Joan sit across the dinner table or parlor from Russell Lund and totally get the creeps? Did she see him mistreating her sister or her kids? From what I read Mr. Lund was all over the local news for his alleged criminal activities. Also was she unaware that the millionaire was constantly being picked up for shoplifting?
At any point did she try and say something? When she got the horrible news, I’m sure she was surprised, but was she TOTALLY caught flat footed?
Then there’s Mike Bonomo (302000) Who openly admits to ignoring gun laws, all while claiming that MORE gun laws are EXACTLY what we need. Of course he moderates any comments that ask how the laws might have stopped him from breaking the law, or any questions for clarifications on how and why he criminally owned guns. He talks about his faith in gun control despite him being living proof of why we should NEVER trust gun regulations to disarm the bad people. He talks about “Gun Flow” from legal channels to the criminals, but he doesn’t want to discuss how HE got HIS guns illegally, nor does he say where his guns ended up when he left for Italy.
Think he might be able to shed some light on how criminals get guns? Anybody curious why he’s so closed-lipped about his criminal ownership? Maybe he was doing more than just criminally OWNING guns, maybe not, who knows….
Not quite as damning as above, but it came to mind is Michael Bannerman (the Lawyer who owns a Dog named Laci) has this interesting forum thread. Seems he’s talking about negligent discharges, and talks about an ND with an 8mm blank-firing PPK (Why??) where he obviously mishandled the gun…and then blames the gun for the ND.
Seems they like to point fingers at OTHERS, and blame guns for their own life mistakes.
I won’t give an inch to people this dysfunctional.
