By now you’ve probably heard that five-time deportee Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez shot and killed 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle in the sanctuary city of San Francisco over the weekend. A crime he’s admitted to. You may be wondering where an illegal alien felon would get a firearm in one of the most assiduously anti-gun cities in one of the most ardently anti-gun states. “As latimes.com reports, “…Lopez-Sanchez said he had found the weapon wrapped in a T-shirt on the ground near a bench….” And, if true, who would be irresponsible enough to leave a loaded gun lying around like that? “The gun…belonged to a federal agent, sources confirmed Tuesday.” . . .
Who is the agent? Which agency does he/she work for? If the illegal alien murder suspect is telling the truth, how did the un-named agent come to leave the heater in a public park? None of the reports we’ve found spell any of that out. Yet. But in a story as hot as this, one that exposes a multi-juridictional, multi-level governmental fustercluck of epic proportions — one that resulted in the death of an innocent woman — that kind of information will come out. Eventually.
Remember, though. Only government employees and the military have the necessary training and experience to be trusted with the awesome responsibility that comes with owning and carrying a firearm. Also remember that the problem is guns. It’s always guns. [h/t DrVino]
