A terrible tragedy occurred in Oakland yesterday: three police officers were killed, and another seriously wounded in separate shootings with the same criminal. USA Today carried the story from Associated Press.
The shooter, Lovelle Mixon, was only 26 and had "an extensive criminal history". I am sure there will be plenty of people ready to explain how he was a victim of is socially and economically disadvantaged background, instead of admitting that the system failed to keep a piece of walking, talking shit in prison where he so richly deserved to be.
And now the gun grabbers will call for ever more restrictions on waepons. But guess what? In California, a state with some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, Mixon, presumably a convicted felon, coould not legally own any type of gun, nor ammunition, and assualt weapons are already banned!
That's right ASSAULT WAEPONS ARE BANNED. But the criminal got one anyway.
Yep, gun bans really do work at keeping guns out the the hands of crmininals. Let's revive 1994 Federal ban!
