We Need More Gun Laws

Because apparently, some jurisdictions are ignoring ones already on the books.

ELIZABETH — The gunman who killed two congregants at a Texas church last month had been charged years earlier with a felony gun offense in New Jersey, where prosecutors later downgraded the crime to a low-level misdemeanor that had nothing to do with firearms.

Since the Dec. 29 shootout at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, much has come out about Keith Thomas Kinnunen’s criminal record, which seems to follow a pattern: He would get charged with serious, sometimes violent crimes, which later were pleaded down to less-consequential offenses.

While plea deals are common in the criminal justice system in New Jersey and elsewhere, this case raises questions about the effectiveness of laws meant to bar certain people from buying or possessing guns.

Despite Kinnunen’s history of mental illness — including a 2012 judge’s order declaring him unfit to stand trial — it does not appear his plea deals were enough to trigger legal provisions limiting gun ownership, which would apply in cases involving domestic violence and felonies.

Interesting.

I guess in a way you can lay the responsibility for the death directly at our liberals justice systems feet with their kid gloves handling of criminals.

No you can’t.

You’re in denial my friend. There’s no question that those whose path this deranged man crossed and did not enforce the laws that they were responsible to do, are in some manner…large or small…complicit.

Sorry still can’t.

They’ll blame Trump for the Iranians shooting down a plane, but New Jersey…

I know…right? Lib hypocrisy on display…again.

Sounds like a Soros funded judge, they like to put criminals back into our communities like Illegal aliens.

I guess we need to pass common sense judicial controls for liberal states.

We need to mandate high capacity prisons, mandatory background checks on anyone leaving the state, and eliminate the plea deal loop hole.

It can be solved easily… Make liberalism, communism, socialism, and people with desires to kill the innocent banned from buying guns, and then take all restrictions off the rest of america, so we can buy our tanks, rocket launchers, grenades, artillery and other fun pieces of equipment.

Liberals will say why would you need artillery!!! I would ask them right back, why do you need 5 kids in cages in your basement with a leash and superman costume…

Guns are the answer…

Really?

If he were doing time for a felony conviction in NJ he couldn’t have committed this crime.

If he’d been properly adjudicated and reported he’d have been a prohibited person and unable to legally purchase the firearm he used.

Ok, that’s just plain funny!

Are there any statistics on how many times you have posted a three word post starting with the word “No…”?

And if he didn’t have a gun he couldn’t do it either.

Shoot them, no. Kill them, most definitely.

Do you think they’ll give Trump the credit for the Iranians uprising against the current terrorist regime?

as though gun laws will keep him from having a gun

please tell me you’re not this naive.

I guess in a way we can have the biggest prison population of any first world country and still cry about liberal justice system

Nope.
