Philadelphia Daily News columnist John Baer (bugmenot login: email@example.com/password) weighs in on gun violence, complaining that the PA State Legislature isn’t going to do anything about gun violence in the state. He cites, among other things, over 80 homicides in Philadelphia already this year, and then points to the recent shootings at Red Lake High School as an event that requires more gun control.
Might I remind Mr Baer that the teenage gunman involved killed his grandfather, a BIA police officer, then stole his grandfather’s guns, vest, and cruiser before starting his rampage? So if you really wanted to keep guns away from Mr Weise, maybe we should disarm the cops, or require them to keep their guns at their station? After all, they’d never be in a situation where they’d need their guns right away, would they?
