Mentally Disturbed Jacksonville Shooter Passed Background Check
In the wake of the shooting in Jacksonville, anti-boomstick lefties are already taking another shot at grabbing our blasters. Repeating the same tired narrative that if we pass "common sense" gun reform, these shootings would cease. There's just one problem.
The dickbag shooter, whose name or face we won't show, passed a background check and endured the mandatory waiting period in Maryland. One of the most anti-gun states in the entire Union:
The perpetrator of the shooting at a Jacksonville video game tournament that left two people dead legally purchased his firearms in the state of Maryland, despite their strict gun laws.
Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said that the shooter recently purchased two handguns used in the shooting from a licensed dealer in the Baltimore area at a news conference Monday afternoon.
According to the Giffords Law Center, “Maryland prohibits any person from purchasing more than one handgun or assault weapon within a 30-day period.”
Further, Court records obtained show the shooter was previously hospitalized in psychiatric facilities on two occasions and was prescribed anti-psychotic and anti-depression medication.
So, lets recap. This murderizing douchelord got his gats in a state with some of the strictest gun laws on the books. Assault weapons bans. Waiting periods. Magazine restrictions. Pretty much everything progressives are claiming would make gun crime go the way of parachute pants. Remind us again lefties how your gun control proposals would be successful.
The fact is criminalizing dickweeds will always get guns. Even with all the gun control laws in place, murders will still happen, as this tragedy proves. No amount of "common sense" gun reforms will ever change human nature.
