As the picture above shows, the man who fatally shot Christina Grimmie did so in a gun-free zone. Somehow, despite the ban on weapons, the killer, Kevin James Loibi, was able to get a large knife in addition to two handguns into the concert area.
As one headline reads: “Christina Grimmie fans demand guns be BANNED after star’s fatal shooting.” Within hours after this tragedy, gun control advocates were calling for more gun control. Not only were guns already banned in the area where the killing occurred, but given how the killer was standing right next to Christina Grimmie when she was killed, he could have also presumably killed her with his large hunting knife.
Gun control advocates love to continuously drag the NRA into these tragedies as if they’re somehow responsible for them, but I have yet to hear anyone like Shannon Watts or the CSGV actually specify WHAT gun laws that the NRA has opposed that would have prevented this. At this time, we don’t know if the killer had a concealed carry permit, nor do we know how he obtained the firearms, or what type of guns he had (I think it’s safe to say that he didn’t have any “assault weapons”), or even whether or not he had a background that prohibited him from owning a gun. This is relevant because organizations like CSGV and MDA frequently claim that they’re not anti-gun. This type of reaction that they have to these tragedies tells me that they are lying when they claim to not be anti-gun.
Also, it’s interesting how Shannon Watts claims that “Americans aren’t safe anywhere,” when our murder and violent crime rates are HALF of what they were 20 years ago.
The psycho gunman did NOT buy the guns or have a gun license. The crazy badguys are always able to get the guns or any weapon to carry out their heinous crimes. The security guards in gun free zones should have guns and should have checked everyone for weapons. There are too many sick people wanting to cause harm to others.
The ONLY reason that a good guy with a gun couldn’t stop the bad guy with a gun in this instance (the same as almost every other time that a bad guy uses a gun) is because it happened in a GUN FREE ZONE… good guys don’t carry guns there… but criminals still do… but libtards everywhere fail to recognize that little detail every time.
I love how their first thought it not mourning, it’s not thought outrage, but it’s to go after the rights of the people around them. It’s like they wait for the opportunity to wave someone’s corpse like a flag.
Yeah, gun grabbers, because he totally wouldn’t have used the giant knife he had on him. The gun did it.
Darwin, their guidebook, “Gun Violence Messaging Guide,” says to do that beginning on page 40 of the book under the heading “High Profile Gun Violence Incidents.” Specifically, “#1 Don’t Hesitate to Speak Out. – There can be a tendency to adopt a quiet “wait and see” attitude when a high-profile gun violence incident happens. The truth is, the most powerful time to communicate is when concern and emotions are running at their peak. … .”
