Guns in the news

Several articles about guns crossed my desk today. For review and discussion:

Highland Park Shooter Was Known to Law Enforcement. He was known to law enforcement. How many times are we going to hear that regarding a mass shooting? He had mental health problems going back to middle school. He declined additional resources to seek help as his parents chose to homeschool him. He had a reported social media presence—and it was highly disturbing. 

Information Uncovered Overnight Shows Highland Park Shooter, Bobby Crimo, Is Tied to Socialists, Progressives, Antifa and the Occult. Now we have information tying Crimo to progressives, socialists, Antifa and the occult.  Crimo’s social network and lifestyle are all progressively related. Crimo has ties to the Democratic Socialists of America as noted by the tattoo on his neck.  This is the largest and fastest-growing socialist organization in the US.

Highland Park Attack Occurred Despite Red Flag Law, Other Stringent Gun Controls. A red flag law, a waiting period for gun purchases, licensing requirements, and numerous other gun controls did not prevent the July 4, 2022, Highland Park attack. Mike Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety lists Illinois as the state with the sixth most stringent gun laws in the country.

Police Were Told In 2019 That Parade Shooter Vowed To ‘Kill Everyone,’ Did Not Arrest Him. “A family member reported that [the suspect] said he was going to kill everyone and [the suspect] had a collection of knives. The police responded to his residence, the police removed 16 knives, a dagger, and a sword from [the suspect’s] home."

A Potential Mass Shooting Was Prevented in New York. Correction Officer David Donegan was at a memorial event Sunday night when two men pulled out guns and pointed them at the crowd. Donegan, who was off duty at the time, immediately pulled out his weapon and engaged them, firing several shots. "One thing is crystal clear, had our officer not exercised his training and made a split second decision, this incident could have cost many innocent people their lives."

New York Effectively Nullifies The Supreme Court’s Latest Pro-Second Amendment Decision. The U.S. Supreme Court has made clear that the Second Amendment guarantees law-abiding citizens the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense, both in their homes and in public. On Friday, New York responded that it didn’t care.

Time's up. Place your pencils on your desk. Close your test booklet. Sit quietly.
