The worst mass murders in our nation’s history did not involve guns.
Check it out:
The day before the first anniversary of the Sandy Hook atrocity, another demented little coward decided to do something so vile and outrageous that he would be remembered forever and get payback on all of those people who had made his miserable little life unbearable. As has been my longstanding policy, I will not mention the worm’s name. I refuse to give him the publicity. The sheriff of Arapahoe County took a similar position, but unfortunately, the “legitimate media” insisted on repeating the attacker’s name, showing his picture and talking about his motives – all things sociologists and criminologists have said fuel rampage killers and encourage copycats.
The person whose name should be on everyone’s lips after this outrage is Claire Davis, a beautiful young woman who was shot in the face at point-blank range for no reason except that a petulant scumbag wanted attention, and she happened to be in front of him. Both sides in the political argument over guns should respect and pray for the victims of these types of atrocities, not try to use the tragedies to promote a political agenda. The initial center of attention for reporters and commenters in this case should have been Clair and her family, and they should remain in our thoughts.
