A firearm is like any other powerful tool that can be used as a weapon. Do not repeat DO NOT pick it up in an environment where emotions are likely to run high!
Bars, frat parties, and Republican conventions are a few places I can think of where folks could easily lose their temper and misuse a firearm (or anything else).
Go to the range and practice on a Hillary target if you are so inclined. (I don't know if they have those but I'm betting they do.) Get it out of your system that way.
Now I could say one sick person bought it, that would be true, but there had to be a whole lot of sick people bidding on it to drive it up to that price. Sick and racist, I'm afraid.
I've formed a hypothesis presently supported by what I believe to be a little bit of fact. In fairness though, it is mostly intuition. He has been ordered to surrender his guns more than once. I have my brother helping me out on these items; if is he is a convicted felon for any of his numerous other charges or is presently under indictment for a felony, it’s highly unlikely the gun is in his possession, in fact it would be illegal.
If the gun were in the possession and being sold by a gun store or private FFL or the like, he believes it would be sale by proxy and given the circumstances, namely felony indictment or conviction, it would be considered a straw sale which would also be illegal. I have no idea about those things but I know the Senator will have an answer for me soon.
I’ve been emailing back and forth with a reporter from the Herald also.
I saw this posted earlier and shows how easily numbers of items can be hidden. Very scary. https://www.facebook.com/LeviLChambers/videos/vb.1630606277189328/1716651315251490/?type=2&theater
The thing is, we can do background checks, interviews, psychological profiles, body pat-downs, xrays...and these do help and should still be done, because unfortunately we are surrounded by more neighbors these days who are acting out violently. While background checks may detect at-risk types or those who have a history of violence, they do not necessarily detect the first offenders, who are often the ones performing these acts. So the easiest way to curb the number of deaths resulting from violence it to make weapons inaccessible, while actively growing programs that will assess and work with folks who have mental illness or other concerning behavioural/conduct issues.
