The first question police and reporters should be asking when tragedies like these occur: “How did a child gain access to a loaded gun?”
Let’s begin with being a bit more candid about this case. Is Shannon hinting this was another deplorable accident where a 12-year-old found a gun and accidentally shot a woman? Probably yes because the truth creates a bunch of questions that she does not want answered:
FOUKE, AR (KSLA) -A 12-year-old student is accused of slaying a clerk and robbing a convenience store in Fouke, Ark. A newspaper carrier found 21-year-old Christa Shockley unresponsive on the floor of EZ Mart on south U.S. Highway 71 just after 2 a.m. Feb. 2, the Miller County, Ark., sheriff’s office reports. Authorities briefed Fouke School District officials about their investigation about 7 a.m. “At that time, no suspects had been identified,” sheriff’s Chief Deputy Michael McQuerrey said. “However it appeared the victim had been specifically targeted.”
Why did he murder the clerk? How did he get to the store at that late hour? How did he get back to wherever he left the gun and clothes? What kind of family life does he have that murdering a woman is something he considered and executed so calmly, he actually went to school the following morning?
But since the answer to these questions are not only hard but would make Shannon and her Mommies uncomfortable, the easy answer is to blame the NRA and Gun Owners.
Because hypocrisy suits her well.
