The New York gunman who opened fire on four firefighters wasn’t legally allowed to own firearms

America’s Watchtower

The gun control debate was ratcheted up another notch over the weekend with the horrific story of William Spengler. William Spengler set several fires in order to lure firefighters to his home and then opened fire on them, killing two and wounding two others before putting the gun to his own head.

The problem with the gun control argument is this; William Spengler could not legally own firearms because he is a convicted felon so the problem isn’t with the gun laws because he wasn’t obeying the laws anyway, he didn’t obtain the weapons legally, but rather with a judicial system which lets a man who beat his own grandmother to death with a hammer out of jail in the first place.

    Well, knock me down with a feather!

    Hello!!!!! Most gun crimes are committed by people not “allowed” to have guns.

    Spangler, Lanza, Chicago thugs…..

    Geez.

    Academic lefties on Gun in a nutshell:

    “if you can’t trust your neighbors enough not to be armed, how are you going to trust them in resistance to the full power of the American surveillance / security / military state?”

    True quote. I kid you not. The professor does not even hide; he wrote that under his own name.

    Well, the left won’t let a crisis like this go to waste and they will make the argument that all guns should be illegal because people steal them and even responsible gun ownership is dangerous!

    and to make sure that this point hits home, they will even publish address of where guns reside so the bad guys that can’t buy them know just where to go to stael them!

    So there!

    Liberals really do believe that if they just pass a law every crazy nutsack homicidal head-case will stop and say, “Gee, I guess I better not shoot up that shopping mall. It’s against the law!”

    That takes a special kind of stupid.

    Maybe they’re just not sending out or dropping off enough fliers.

    These tards will probably start another gubment agency to do nothing but send fliers out to felons letting them know its illegal to own or posess a gun as their next idiotic cure.

    They might want to also include robbing, murder, rape, beaking and entering, carjacking, assault, stealing, battery, conversion, wire fraud.

    I mean there must be a reason these felons are commiting these crimes short of not knowing….other then being released early.

    We continually knock our heads against the wall because the liberal dumb shits refuse to accept simple truth.

    The left doesn’t care about protecting the children or reducing crime. Those are red herrings and they know gun control won’t have any effect on public safety. The real agenda is to eliminate your ability to resist. Resistance can take form of speech or action; to prevent that, modification of the first two Amendments is already being discussed.

    Quick, somebody call Diane. I’m sure this would have a huge impact on her ability to reason. NOT. They need to get our guns to continue on with the agenda.

    Liberalism let this piece of shit out after serving 17 years for smashing his grandmother’s brains in with a hammer.

    Had he ridden the needle, none of this senseless murder would have happened.

    But hey, don’t you let a crisis go to waste commiefilth libtards.

    We need to make it clear to anyone who talks about this. This happened because liberalism made it happen. There isn’t a conservative alive who would have released a hammer killer even after 80 years. The sob shoulda been executed. Failing that open and shut truth, he never should have seen the light of day. There’s no excuse and 100% of the blame falls on liberal DEMOCRATS. This is their fault.

    There should be a law forbidding the shooting of Firemen.

    There, solved that one!
