The murder suspect in the Cascade Mall shooting, who turned out not to be hispanic like first reported, but a Turkish immigrant instead. Has had previous run ins with the law. His criminal record includes three domestic-violence assault charges. On Dec. 29, The Seattle Times reports that an Island County District Court judge, told him he was not to possess firearms. Likewise, the criminal class that victimize people for personal gain, don’t obey gun control laws.
If we’re to believe the myth that gun control, is the magical panacea to society’s ills, five people inside Macy’s department store that fateful night would still be alive. This is one of those realities that shatter the gun control argument. As laws that restrict the law abiding, do not and will not, stop bad actors. Such laws turn out to be dangerous, because the end result is, that they protect and embolden violent criminals.
