You may have heard about the horrible shooting that recently happened at Michigan State University. Three students were killed, and five more students were reported to have received “life-threatening” injuries. Truly a horrible situation.
What you probably haven’t heard, though, is that, if gun control actually worked, this shooting wouldn’t have happened.
And, no, I’m not being speculative and exaggerating in the least. If gun control laws worked, this shooting would not, could not have happened.
Joseph Mackinnon gives us details that will explain why I’m right about this. Mackinnon writes,
The Detroit Free Press reported that Anthony McRae — the man police indicated was responsible for slaying three innocent students and then killing himself — was arrested in 2019 on a gun-related charge in Lansing, Michigan.
McRae was charged with a violation of concealed carry law and possessing a loaded weapon in a vehicle.
Despite the initial felony charge, the Ingham County District Attorney’s Office, formerly helmed by progressive Democrat Carol Siemon, cut McRae a deal and lowered the charges to a misdemeanor.
Ingham County Prosecutor John Dewane, Siemon’s successor, told the Free Press, “Mr. McRae would have been barred from legally purchasing, owning, or possessing a firearm if he would have been convicted of the [concealed weapons] charge.”
“The misdemeanor conviction did not prevent him from purchasing, owning, or possessing a firearm after he successfully completed his terms of probation,” added Dewane.
Dewane noted in a statement Tuesday that the original felony charge was punishable by up to five years.
So, a Democrat (and, most likely, anti-2A) district attorney let this guy off, basically, free and clear and set up the situation where the guy was able to completely skirt gun control laws already in place.
In other words, if the (most likely anti-2A) district attorney had actually enforced the existing laws on the books (and if gun control actually worked), then, McRae would not have been able to commit this shooting because he wouldn’t have had a gun.
But he did have a gun, and it’s the anti-2A party’s fault that this guy was able to so easily get it.
But those same anti-2A politicians are using this horrible shooting to call for more gun control (which they won’t enforce, then, either).
It makes you wonder what their real end game is if they aren’t even going to enforce laws already in place to keep people safe, doesn’t it?
