Blood Dancing 102

I just learned from Joan Peterson’s Twitter feed that a third victim from the Ohio School shooting has passed away. My heart goes out to the families, I was hoping the three wounded students would recover, and my best wishes go out to the third student.

It seems that all the anti-rights activists are the first to announce when a new death certificate is signed. I wonder if its sorrow, or glee they feel. Certainly it adds more punctuations for them to project pieces like this.

But the shooting is bound to push Ohio lawmakers and residents to look more closely at their gun laws.

Under Ohio gun laws, a person must be 18 years of age, pass a national background check, and fill out a firearms transaction record to purchase a handgun. A state permit, firearm registration and owner’s license, however, are not needed.

Last summer, Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed a “guns-in-bars” bill into law, making it legal to carry concealed firearms into bars, restaurants, shopping malls, nightclubs and sports arenas for the first time. The law is considered one of the broadest gun laws in the country.

Huh? The alleged shooter was 17, what does it matter how somebody who is 18 can purchase a handgun? Also the restaurants bill? Am I to understand that Chardon High School had a bar? Also 17 years olds can’t get carry permits…

These points are irrelevant, but the Antis bring them up, and now when they bring them up they will say “Four Dead” rather than just the one of yesterday.

Also this report is the first to mention that the pistol used was “.22 Caliber”. Just in the law of averages it is most likely a .22 target-style pistol, one of the many Umerex trainers, like the Walther P22, or Sig Mosquito. It could be a pocket .22 like my Beretta or my Jennings, or a revolver like my S&W 617, but those guns just aren’t as common as the trainers and the target guns.

One thing that can be said about all of these guns is that they are not “High Powered” or “High Capacity”, and almost all are designed for range use, sporting, and target shooting. The Antis are going to say SOMETHING stupid they already are contradicting themselves:

“If kids could not and did not bring guns to school, we wouldn’t have Columbine, Virginia Tech or #Chardon.”….Despite terrible tragedy at #Chardon, our schools (& other “gun-free zones”) remain the safest places inthe country

Two separate tweets by Ladd Everit of the Joyce Foundation.

This is blood dancing, and its pretty obvious they could care less about the pain of others. They only care about their agenda.

    Some quick research shows that you must be 21 to purchase a handgun in Ohio by state law, not even considering federal law stating one must be 21 to purchase a handgun from a dealer.

    Also, now that I think about it the part of that statement covering federal law is unlikely to be part of the state law, so potentially that entire statement is false?

      I suspected it might be wrong. You can’t buy a handgun from an FFL federally until you are 21…but there are states that allow people 18+ (or in some states younger) handguns to buy or be given handguns.

      Still anti-gun people getting the laws wrong? color me SURPRISED! Pretty hilarious when you realize these people are PAID to do this.

    This is pretty much blood dancing. I am from Ohio, so I know that you have to be 21 to purchase a handgun. The kid stole the gun from a family member who could have gotten a firearm ownership permit in any of the heavy gun law states. Ohio does not have a mandatory lockup law, but this fact does not really matter since those laws were ruled unconstitutional. So we now have a group of people who are calling for laws that would have had absolutely no effect on the shooting.

    They are trying SO HARD to be reasonable. They know that advocating a ban on firearms is a losing proposition. So they hope that their supporters read between the lines because the ONLY way to achieve Joan’s goals is a ban.

    But they can’t say that. And so they have this new tactic of trumpeting the deaths of every body killed, especially children, by guns hoping that they will incite outrage and get guns banned in a similar way it happened in Australia.

    Update on the Shooting. The Police report said the kid’s name was T.J. Lane. He’s 17, he was declared “At Risk” and was already in a “Diversionary School” called Lake Academy in Willoughby, Ohio. Yes, that’s Breda’s Hometown. Most of the kids in the Cafeteria at the time were waiting on Buses to take them to Lake Academy or the local JVC, or other programs, and so was the Shooter. The Police said he had a .22 Caliber Pistol, 10 rounds of Ammo and a KNIFE. Don’t know if used all the Ammo, but it sounds like it could be a simple Ruger semi-auto.

    Also, if you do a simple Google Map search for Chardon, you’ll find that the High School is about 1 mile from the town Police Dept. about 2 miles from the Ohio Highway Patrol Station, and about 5 miles from the Geauga County Sheriff’s Dept. I’m sure it’ll come out soon, but the response time from the first 911 calls until Police arrived seems to have been about 5 minutes at best. And the Police Station is on the Main Road, so it wasn’t as if they were doing the Dakar Rally to get there.

    Again, every System was in Play, all the Laws have been Passed, and none of it mattered. Everything Joan Peterson and her Cronies CLAIM they want is already there.

    Again, the Shooter was the only one who stopped the Shooting. Everything else Failed, and 3 kids who were just waiting for a School Bus are dead.

    I hope Peterson reads this.

      It won’t matter if she reads it, Les. It won’t register. Her grasp of reality is tenuous, at best, dishonest, at worst.

      She’ll just comment about how this shows that guns at school are bad, that guns need to have reasonable restrictions on them so that kids can’t get access to them, etc….all the while ignoring what you wrote.

      Here’s her take:
      We can pass more gun laws and we should. Making parents responsible for children getting their hands on guns would help. 28 states have some form of Child Access Prevention laws. Laws requiring mandatory reporting of lost and stolen guns may stop gun owners from being careless with their guns. Safely storing guns should be of utmost importance to keep guns away from the hands of children and teens as well as theft. Guns in the hands of children must first pass through the hands of an adult. You can read from the linked article above about the effectiveness of locking guns away from children. It works.

      So….. the shooter has already broken a number of laws, stolen his gun, etc….but more laws will help.

      Ok, then.

    The latest print news seems to indicate the murder weapon was a Ruger .22 pistol.

    Video I saw of court proceedings said 10 shots were fired, the victims were randomly selected, and the weapon was a .22 pistol.

    If all this is true, odds are the murder weapon was one of the numerous sporting/target model full sized Ruger .22 pistols with a 10 shot magazine, and that the shooter just kept shooting until his one mag was empty.
