Another list of Gun Dead People, Another Oops!

Ssgmark was perusing the news and found something “interesting,” A heartfelt Washington Post article (March 21,2015) on the memorial erected by the Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church:

On the lower left corner, you can see the yellow T-shirt with the name “Ray Savoy.” Now, who was Mr. Savoy? According to the Washington Post (12/9/2014):

To his girlfriend’s family, Ray Savoy seemed an attentive, loving boyfriend. The 29-year-old carried Kristy Flowers, an aspiring lawyer, up and down the stairs after she had surgery on her foot and often made sure that her baths were accompanied by candles and chocolates….
…On Tuesday, police officials in Arlington County said they believe that Savoy fatally shot Flowers, 31, inside the apartment they shared on North Kensington Street in the Westover neighborhood, then shot and killed himself

People need to be picky and not just read off a list some other idiot provided. You may remember the embarrassing effect it had on the Mayors Against Illegal Guns “No More Names” tour bus which had names of criminals doing their deeds and even dying while confronting police or an armed intended victim.

I am gonna quote from Ssgmark’s email because it reflects perfectly my sentiment:

Maybe I’m being picky, but listing a murderer as a victim of gun violence is a bit too inclusive for my taste.  Especially since I’m assuming that somewhere nearby is a tee shirt with his victim’s name on it.
I could have not said it better.

  1. If they took out all of the thugs killed committing crimes or by other thugs, their list would be a lot smaller. I remember the whole illegal mayor name campaign. That got so bad that they were sneaking into town and sneaking out. I almost missed them when they came to Des Moines. The gun supporters outnumbered the gun haters almost 2 to 1.

  2. This is nothing new. Back in the late ’80s (could be early ’90s- my memory isn’t what it was) PEOPLE MAGAZIINE did its annual “We Hate Guns” issue, showing ‘all the faces of the children killed by guns in one month’. Included among these faces were several gangbangers and other criminals, including two killed by cops.
