Gun control advocates claim they oppose gun violence yet only seem to want non-state agents disarmed. In fact gun control advocates want the state to keep its guns because people with guns are needed to take guns from people. In their holy war to convince others to become members of the gun control church the advocates of gun control make outlandish claims such as police officers are more responsible with firearms than the average person. Stories like this indicate otherwise:
Two women who were shot by Los Angeles police in Torrance early Thursday during a massive manhunt for an ex-LAPD officer were delivering newspapers, sources said.
The women, shot in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue, were taken to area hospitals, Torrance police Lt. Devin Chase said. They were not identified. One was shot in the hand and the other in the back, according to Jesse Escochea, who captured video of the victims being treated.
It was not immediately known what newspapers the women were delivering. After the shooting, the blue pickup was riddled with bullet holes and what appeared to be newspapers lay in the street alongside.
Here’s a picture of the aftermath:
Apparently the police didn’t feel the need to identify the occupants of the vehicle before firing over a dozen rounds into it. In all likelihood the officers involved in the shooting will go unpunished because they were fired on the truck under the guise of officer safety. Combining the words officer and safety generally grants immunity to any wrongdoing performed by a police officer.
The police prove to be more irresponsible than the average gun owner time and time again. I, nor anybody I know who carries a gun, would have fired rounds into a truck. In fact if I, or any other person who carries a gun, had fired rounds into a truck we would be locked in a cage and hearings would be held on newly proposed legislation to punish every other non-state gun owner. Most of the time police officers involved in shooting bystanders are granted administrative leave until the one week news cycle passes, at which point the officers involved return to work. How anybody can support disarming accountable individuals such as myself but not unaccountable individuals such as state agents is beyond my comprehension, especially when they claim to advocate my disarmament under the guise of stopping gun violence.
