VPC: It is the gun owner’s fault, not the shooter.

Once again we are witnessing the less than innocent wording by VPC’s Social Media Intern.

And the friend is not a virginal guy. According to his own words:

The friend said he has a concealed carry permit but left his Taurus 9mm gun with Walls because he didn’t want to have it when he was driving, the complaint says.

But there is no onus on him for the shooting. He did not give the gun or left it unchecked with the minors, the father did.  Incidentally the father was a prohibited person five ways from Sunday, but again, not the problem of the gun owner unless he knew he was prohibited. And the fact that daddy is not being charged with a gun violation says a lot.

But VPC had to figure out a way to say it was direct responsibility of the Gun Owner with  CWP.  I would not be surprised to see this case in their “Concealed Carry Killers!” report (cue ominous music) which as usual it will be plagued with falsehoods.
