The Last Word On Guns

The best analysis of gun enthusiasts I have read anywhere since the most recent round of gun-enabled mass murders. Oh by the way, did anyone notice at all that the entire news cycle yesterday was dominated by the final act of a mass shooting, with guns, that killed at least four people. Despite the fact that on my own television I saw CNN cut directly from a flaming hideout with a gunman inside to the House chamber for the State of the Union address, I didn’t hear a single news person make the connection. Meanwhile, a random collection of recent events.

Little Rock, Ark. — Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe this afternoon signed the so-called Guns in Churches bill into law. The law gives individual churches the right to allow guns inside their buildings.

College Park, Md. — After a 23-year-old graduate student at a university tried to start a fire in his residence, he used a 9mm handgun to shoot and kill a 22-year-old male roommate and wound another 22-year-old male roommate before using the weapon to kill himself. Police later found a semiautomatic Uzi rifle with ammunition, a machete, and a baseball bat in the gunman’s shoulder-pack. Family members said the shooter was taking medication for a diagnosed mental illness. He was able to legally buy both the handgun and the Uzi, according to police.

Alameda, Calif. — A 40-year-old man was shot in the back while attempting to get to his gun when two male robbers entered his residence about 7:25 p.m. Monday. The victim was in critical condition.

Caldwell, Idaho — A 34-year-old man was shot by his 41-year-old wife during a domestic dispute. The incident began as the couple argued Sunday and he told his wife to shoot him. Thinking the gun was unloaded, she pointed it at him and pulled the trigger to scare him with the sound of the trigger click. The gun fired, striking the man. He is hospitalized in intensive care and she was arrested.
