On Wednesday, August 26th, a murderous monster, a former news reporter, assassinated two innocent people, both part of WDBJ’s morning news team, and put a third person in the hospital with serious injuries.
Our prayers go out to the victims, Alison Parker (reporter), Adam Ward (cameraman), and Vicki Gardner (person being interviewed – currently in the hospital).
And our illustrious Virginia governor, long before the facts started rolling in and while the bodies of the dead were still warm, decided to go on a rant about how we need more gun control here in the Old Dominion. And so did MoveOn.org as well as other top Democrats.
So typical of the gun controllers, like Governor McAuliffe, to dance in the blood of the innocent.
Governor McAuliffe used the shooting as an excuse to say that we “need background checks.” I think he’s talking about dangerous Universal Background Checks, but his statement makes it sound like Virgina does not do any background checks currently. From a key part of the murderer’s manifesto, it looks to me that Bryce Williams (whose real name is Vester Lee Flannigan) most likely bought the gun from a dealer and DID have a background check. We should know the answer to that soon. (UPDATE: He Did Pass a Background Check) For now I will await the facts on that, but I’m betting the governor is going to wish he hadn’t brought that up.
Governor McAuliffe also used the shooting to remind all of us that he doesn’t have a clue what the gun laws are in Virginia. McAuliffe, once again, said he vetoed a gun bill that would have allowed Virginians to be able to buy machine guns!
Uh, Governor McAuliffe, machine guns are already perfectly legal in Virginia and have been for a very long time. Your veto didn’t change that fact one iota.
Here’s the Governor shamelessly pushing his gun-control agenda:
