What do the government and Nancy Lanza have in common?
What do the federal government and Nancy Lanza—the deceased mother of Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza—have in common? They both appear to have supported the illegal “straw” purchases of guns for people who then used those weapons to commit crimes.
From the New York Daily News on Lanza:
The police in Connecticut believe that Lanza’s mother, a gun lover herself, was an enabler of her son’s increasing obsession with guns, that she was making straw purchases of guns for him all along, and ignoring the fact that he was getting more and more fixated on them.
And from ABC (via Univision) regarding the government’s role in Fast and Furious, the federal effort to allow illegally purchased guns to “walk”:
Univision News identified a total of 57 more previously unreported firearms that were bought by straw purchasers monitored by ATF during Operation Fast and Furious, and then recovered in Mexico in sites related to murders, kidnappings, and at least one other massacre.
If there was a Republican in the White House, Fast and Furious would be bigger than Watergate. Because we don’t, the scandal is smaller than the Benghazi tragedy. As a bonus for our liberal, It’s for the children, leaders, the Sandy Hook tragedy provides a governmental excuse for additional gun control restrictions.
Ironical, ain’t it?
