Watched this incident on the ID show Killer Beside Me Sunday I had DVR’D. Notice how quick the article is to blame the action of purchasing a firearm.
My heart goes out to the Nosal family for the loss of their daughter, Caroline. However, both parents also seem quick to jump on the gun control bandwagon if you check other sources, and these people are a physician and a trauma nurse. People aren’t strictly flown to trauma centers with gunshot wounds.
www.imdb.com to learn about the late Theresa Saldana, who passed away from pneumonia in recent years. She was a wonderful actress, but she was also stabbed by her stalker, an insane who believed her to be an angel and wanted to be executed in the electric chair for taking her to heaven with him.
Ms. Saldana was nationally known. More regionally known is Melissa Dohme-Hill of Clearwater, Florida, who was also nearly fatally stabbed by her stallker. She is at this time an advocate for battered women, in particular helping teens to avoid such relationships, but AFAIK neither individual endorsed any gun control as victims and victims’ advocates.
Had Christopher O’Kroley, IMO, not been able to access a firearm, there are weapons he could have used. Why are so many so quick to blame access to the weapon rather than the simple fact that there are some people mentally disturbed enough to kill another person, and have always and will always find a way to do it?
