Huntsville shooting another ‘gun free zone’ failure
Why was Huntsville shooting suspect set free after killing brother?
In the last column, we saw how University of Alabama in Huntsville shooting suspect Amy Bishop had been released from custody after shooting her brother to death when then-District Attorney, now-Rep. William Delahunt decided no charges were warranted. We also saw that, while letting killers walk, Delahunt is a committed Massachusetts gungrabber.
Here’s more on his “gun issues” record from Project Vote Smart. Not only is he rated “F” by the National Rifle Association and “F-” by Gun Owners of America, we learn he’s been given past grades of “100% for supporting the interests of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence [and] the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.”
Delahunt was on the “Comprehensive List of Brady Campaign Endorsements” in 2008, and they gave him an all caps “VICTORY!” and checkmark on their “Election 2008 Celebrating Victories” page.
What that means is, he, like they, wishes for you to be effectively defenseless against released killers with guns. Not just at universities, but everywhere.
And here’s one other revelation about Bishop, from The New York Times:
After she left the room, the police said, she dumped the gun — for which she did not have a permit — in a second-floor bathroom.
So not only did she ignore the campus gun ban, she didn’t let Alabama carry laws stop her either?
Is this where we say “Duh”?
And then we’re supposed to believe the solution to preventing this is even more “gun control”? You know, what the Bradys and the Delahunts of the world call for every time one of the criminal miscreants they enable takes advantage of the vulnerability they require of the “law-abiding”?
