Less than 24 hours after El Paso, came the mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio. The Ohio Greene County Board of Elections stated that Connor Betts, 24, the Dayton shooter, was a registered Democrat (copy of registration at Gateway Pundit). Among the 9 people killed was his 22 year old sister, Megan Betts. Was he a Christian? Not even close. He may have been a satanist based on a patch on his shirt that said “Against All Gods.”
He opened fire, killing 9 people, including his sister. Though she was not shot first, she ended up among the dead. The friend was also injured, but survived. Police have spoken with her, but have not released that conversation. Motive is still unknown, or at least has not been released.
The names of the victims are: Megan Betts, 22, 27-year-old Lois L. Oglesby, 38-year-old Saeed Saleh, 57-year-old Derrick R. Fudge, 30-year-old Logan M. Turner, 25-year-old Nicholas P. Cumer, 25-year-old Thomas J. McNichols, 36-year-old Beatrice N. Warren-Curtis and 39-year-old Monica E. Brickhouse. (Fox)
For liberals, these incidents are fodder for emotional outbursts against President Trump and the NRA, and all people who have guns.
Already, some Democrats have called for door-to-door gun confiscation (bad idea). In reality, they’ll just ratchet down the laws so tight that people will start ignoring them in acts of civil disobedience. They’ll start with “background checks” (both of the shooters this weekend passed those). They’ll then move to “assault weapons bans” and “magazine bans” which will simply turn law abiding Americans into criminals. None of those things will stop mass murder. When killers want to kill, they find a way.
There is likely more to the stories of both shootings. Some of it, we’ll likely never know through public information. But count on it that the 2A is under siege right now because of emotion rather than truth. And that could end up in the unthinkable…
