Hatemongers celebrate, mock death of gun advocate Bob Owens

Source: Twitter

On Tuesday, we reported that Bob Owens, editor of the pro-Second Amendment site Bearing Arms, was found dead from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  Many mourned his loss, but naturally, others mocked and celebrated his death on Twitter.  Even CNN’s Jake Tapper seemed shocked by the response of those on the left.







NBC News reported that Owens’ death was ruled a suicide:

The 46-year-old was found by authorities outside of his North Carolina home next to a stop sign around 11 a.m. on Monday, the Fuquay-Varina Police Department said. A firearm was located near Owens.

“The cause of death in this case has been ruled suicide through means of self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head,” police officials confirmed in a statement.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help support Owens’ family and can be seen here.

The page reads:

We’re at a loss for words right now, but we’re heartbroken and praying for his family. We’d like to show our love and appreciation for Bob.

It’s too late to tell him face-to-face, but I hope he can see now how much we thought of him in our outpouring of support for his family.

He was always defending the little guy from the bully.

He always had a minute or an hour to talk, or teach, or just listen.

He touched many of our lives with his genuine caring heart.

According to the page, the effort “is being coordinated by Bob’s collegues (sic) at work and will be turned over to his family once they have a chance to grieve in private.  Funds will be used to support Bob’s wife and children as they grow up and pursue their dreams without him to help.”

In February 2011 I first said that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate.  Sadly, liberal hatemongers prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.
