I don’t think so.
When will it end?
The killings on December 14, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School will be forever remembered as a monumental failure of otherwise law-abiding gun owners to take responsibility for their freedoms.
I don’t know when it will end. But it seems highly unlikely that it will completely end until overly-emotive nonthinkers like Mr. Nehring base their victim disarmament decisions on fantasy rather than reality.
Let’s talk about the “failures” of law-abiding gun owner Mrs. Lanza.
- Her son had mental problems. She spent years trying to address them.
- She bought firearms through licensed dealers, going through background checks.
- She reportedly kept most of her firearms locked up, some reports indicating specifically to keep them out of her son’s hands.
So what was her failure; what allowed her deranged son to get those guns and murder those people?
She fell asleep.
Yes, for those with no long-term memory, like Nehring, Mrs. Lanza’s son murdered her in her sleep so that he could steal the guns he would take to the school.
Many vocal gun owners refuse to acknowledge that with their freedoms come responsibility. Instead they try to sweep this tragic result under the rug.
I suppose in Nehring’s deranged world, he has a point. The right to sleep without being murdered is not specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights.
Ban sleep and high capacity king-sized beds.
