If you haven’t heard already, a student at the University of Virginia shot and killed three fellow students on November 13, 2022. Like all active shooting incidents, this whole situation is tragic, horrible, and shouldn’t have happened.
Unfortunately, like nearly all active shooter situations, those on the anti-2A side of the political aisle have been trying to use this shooting to push gun control while they and their legacy mainstream media cronies have been conveniently overlooking and ignoring the facts of this case that show that the problem here wasn’t a lack of gun control. No, the problems leading up to this shooting were proof of how gun control fails. Again and again.
See, what you probably don’t know (and they don’t want you to know) is that the shooter exhibited all sorts of warning signs, including gun-related criminal activity, at least a year before the shooting occurred. If gun control worked, then, this guy wouldn’t have been able to have guns to commit the crimes. But he did (hat tip to here for the lead). Kris Rhim writes,
More than a year before he was charged with shooting and killing three fellow University of Virginia students, Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. appeared in a music video holding a gun and rapping about murder and his own mental troubles.
The video, posted on YouTube on Aug. 15, 2021, features Mr. Jones, another rapper and others dancing and aiming guns at the camera, and it adds to the questions surrounding the university’s investigation of Mr. Jones in the months before the shooting. He had left a trail of warning signs, including a concealed weapon violation and a felony charge that was pleaded down to a misdemeanor.
While the university started investigating Mr. Jones in September, after another student had reported that he had mentioned having a gun, officials did not interview him because he had refused to cooperate, they said. Nor did anyone from the university search his room, which would have revealed a cache of weapons and ammunition.
All of these warning signs, yet, nothing happened to Jones to prevent him from being able to shoot anyone.
And we’re supposed to believe that gun control would work to prevent gun violence when nothing happened with such clear indications that violence seemed to be likely to come from this individual?
No, gun control doesn’t decrease gun violence. It increases it, and it simply disarms the law-abiding among us to make us less able to defend ourselves from criminals.
When a person shoots multiple people that person should go to trail immediately and if found guilty that person should be put to death immediately in a public place. These shooters go to jail and get treated so good it should just throw the case out. But executing that person like that would slow down other shoots. Let that junk being die as others watch his heinous death. Then we will have a tool to stop these senseless killings. Right now the killer is not punished. I say let the punishment fit the crime.
Agreed! We are too soft on violent crimes in general. If confined to jail, hard labor will work to keep the accused thinking about their heinous actions until the ultimate penalty is administered.
As usual, DEMON RATS do not investigate each other.
The laws are never meant to be applied to them.
A ” good man” with a gun would have taken care of business.
BUT the compound is a “gun free zone”!
Which the stupid imbecile murderer evidently defied and nobody tried to stop him, even with the proofs of his instability…
Thank you WOKE STUPID IMBECILE DEMON RATS of the university!
Help stop the mental disease called liberal wokism by every legal means
The idiots(lawyers) that plea bargain this crap, are the reason the death penalty doesn’t deter them! Let them swing and in a public place for all to see is what will deter them! Start making the judges and lawyers that let these scum go, responsible and this crap will end over night!
