Oregon Sheriff Handling Massacre Fought the White House on Gun Control After Newtown —
By Becca Andrews | Thu Oct. 1, 2015 6:33 PM EDT Email 13
As the sheriff in Douglas County, Oregon, John Hanlin was front and center following Thursday's shooting at Umpqua Community College, which left at least 13 dead and 20 wounded. Two years ago, Hanlin was one of hundreds of sheriffs around the country to vow to stand against new gun control legislation. In a January 15, 2013, letter to Vice President Joe Biden, he wrote, "Gun control is NOT the answer to preventing heinous crimes like school shootings."
Gun control is obviously NOT the answer. More guns in the general population, especially allowing mentally ill young men access to those guns, is the way to go.
More guns for mentally ill people will keep us safe! Go for it. And think about it while your daughters, sons, granddaughters, and grandsons attend our fabulous NRAmerican schools.
We are an egregiously stupid country when it comes to guns.
So far this year, there have been at least 294 mass shooting incidents. There have been 274 days. That’s according to the Mass Shooting Tracker.
The project tracks incidents in which four or more people are shot — but not necessarily killed — in a spree or setting.
Of the mass shootings, 84 incidents can be categorized as spree murders, including the shooting Thursday at Umpqua Community College in Oregon that left at least 13 people dead and more injured. Spree murders are defined by the FBI as the murder of two or more people committed without a cooling-off period, according to the Mass Shooting Tracker.
No problem here. This is normal for a country. Mass shootings, carnage, death, maiming. Yay NRAmerica! Second Amendment Rights RUUUUUULE!
