Mass Murderer in Aurora Illinois was Prohibited Possessor
Gun Watch ^ | 17 February, 2019 | Dean Weingarten

Posted on 02/16/2019 1:31:49 PM PST by marktwain


The Aurora murderer at the Henry Pratt Co. valve manufacturing plant in Illinois was a prohibited possessor of firearms. He had been convicted of aggravated assault in Mississippi in 1995, for stabbing a woman. He was about 22 years old at the time.

Characters are pretty well formed by the time you are 22. The murderer had been arrested six times in Aurora for traffic and domestic battery incidents, the last in 2008. He was arrested in 2017, in Oswego, Illinois, for disorderly conduct and property damage.  No convictions were listed during this period.

He originally passed a background check in 2014, when he purchased a Smith & Wesson .40 caliber handgun.  A few months later, a second background check, when he applied for a Concealed Carry Permit, showed the earlier felony conviction.

SPJNK?????

This shows the uselessness of Illinois’s FOID (Firearm Owners ID) card and most other gun control laws.

Some People Just Need Killing.

The AM told me to tone down my anger and hatred of subhuman in FR articles, so I abbreviate it.

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Laws do not prevent bad behavior, they only serve as a vehicle for society to act on that behavior. Problem is our judicial system has lost the bubble regarding punishment and the crime.

We need to keep people like him from getting a gun.

Oh, wait...

There’s only one solution when a man who cannot legally possess firearms commits an illegal shooting in a gun-free zone: More restrictions on the God-given rights of responsible, law-abiding Americans.

Black Shooter, all White Victims (Hispanics are Caucasians).

I was wondering why this event didn’t get the usual attention.
