The modern push for Gun Control can be traced to January 17, 1989 with the Stockton Schoolyard shooting where 5 children died. This is the even that coined the much maligned and now ridiculed “Do it for the children!” waved every time there is somebody under 19 as a victim of a crime involving a firearm.

Just 3 months later, another massacre occurred with a higher children body count, but it was barely mentioned by the Media or brought out at all by the “Do it for the Children!” pundits and politicians.

The instrument of death was not that evil AK 47 the media have been drumming about, but something as simple as a match or a lighter and possibly some accelerant, all easily obtainable and non-regulated to this day.

And if I am not mistaken, still the higher number of casualties per incident (setting aside 9/11 and the OKC bombing) were caused by arson.

But arson is not politically sexy, and it does not offer much to write about or to wax philosophically in front of a camera.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

One thought on “Old News: The Hypocrisy of Gun Control and its partners.”
  1. Also around the same time a guy( korean I think) drove his Cadillac on to a school playground and killed/injured some kids… barely a peep…. Yup, nothing to see here folks… the beauty now is the media frenzy isnt working… meanwhile We the People continue to set NICS records..

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
