The Delusional Left refuses to live in the real world. They are screaming to ban handguns, assault weapons because a 20-year-old psycho, who cannot legally have handguns murdered his mother, stole her guns, and slaughtered 20 children? The Left wants more gun control even though Connecticut has very strict gun laws already. Laws that did nothing to stop the killer. Killers like this walk through laws and go on killing sprees, largely because the left has defined schools as “gun free zones” as if a sign will stop a mass murderer. But, who are they seeking to disarm here?
In last week’s mall shooting in Oregon, the mall was also super safe because it is a gun free zone by the way, a hero with a concealed carry permit helped stop the shooter and saved lives. Why would the Left wish to disarm him?
The shooting last week at the mall in Clackamas, Oregon has been overshadowed by the tragedy that unfolded Friday morning at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. In Oregon two innocent human beings lost their lives, but perhaps the carnage would have been worse if not for Nick Meli, who has a concealed carry permit and was in the mall when the gunman opened fire. Meli pulled his weapon, but did not shoot the gunman because there were bystanders who could have been injured. The gunman saw Meli, an armed citizen, and rather than shoot more innocents he pointed his weapon at himself.
“He was working on his rifle,” said Meli. ”He kept pulling the charging handle and hitting the side.”
The break in gunfire allowed Meli to pull out his own gun, but he never took his eyes off the shooter.
“As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them,” he said.
Meli took cover inside a nearby store. He never pulled the trigger. He stands by that decision.
“I’m not beating myself up cause I didn’t shoot him,” said Meli. “I know after he saw me, I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself.”
Tens of thousands of Americans use guns every year to defend themselves, the lowest estimate shows that 274 Americans per day act heroically BECAUSE they are armed, but the Left wishes to disarm them? Of course, the Left insists that this is the only way, and the Left are the geniuses behind gun free zones, right? Certainly the Left cringes when anyone suggests armed security in schools, or allowing teachers with concealed carry permits have guns in school. And again, Sandy Hook Elementary, a gun free zone, became a killing zone Friday. And one very heroic woman, the school principal sacrificed herself by charging the gunman. What if this woman had a gun?
Town officials in Connecticut say the principal who died in the rampage at an elementary school was killed while lunging at the gunman as she tried to overtake him.
Dawn Hochsprung was gunned down in Friday’s massacre in Newtown. Board of Education chairwoman Debbie Liedlien says administrators were coming out of a meeting when the gunman forced his way into the school and ran toward them.
Perhaps this woman, this hero would have chosen not to carry, but if she had, certainly she would have a much better chance against the shooter. But, again, any choice she would have made was negated by the gun free zone nonsense. Also note that if armed security had been in place the shooter would have been dead before he was able to force his way into the school. But, all of that matters not to the Left. All they can do is blame guns, and law-abiding gun owners. If the Left truly wants to point fingers they ought to go look into a mirror.
