The Second Amendment gives American the right to arm themselves for the protection of their persons. Responsible citizens are ready to respond when the government fails to do its job of protecting us. How’s that working out?
Three men were wounded in the shooting at a crowded bar in Olathe on Wednesday night and one of them later died.
A barman told local media a man used racial slurs before opening fire. Two of the victims, including the deceased, are Indian.
Adam Purinton, 51, has been charged with premeditated first-degree murder and the FBI is investigating a motive.
Of course, Purinton is one of the people not allowed to possess a firearm under United States law:
“They’re shocked,” said Raymond Horspool, who lives a few houses away from Purinton, of his neighborhood’s residents. Other neighbors told him the attack “seemed out of character.”
Purinton had lived in Olathe since 1998, records show. He was known by neighbors as a low-key fixture in the community, and as a regular of Austins who was generally friendly, said Horspool.
Well… I guess my previous statement is wrong. Purinton is exactly the person permitted to own and carry a handgun. It’s interesting how that works out.
The story is not over. I have one of these every Thursday. Keep reading.
And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.
