Alton Sterling bought gun just hours before he was shot dead by police in Baton Rouge – “A friend of Alton Sterling says the Baton Rouge man bought a gun for protection only hours before he was shot to death by two white cops outside a convenience store. ‘He didn’t have a gun before that,” barber Ronnie Harton, 50, told the Daily News. “He said he had to protect himself, because he had all this money on him. Around this area, you get robbed real quick.’” Whatever the investigation into Sterling’s shooting reveals about the police officers’ actions, how did a convicted felon (sex offender with multiple arrests for a variety of other charges) manage to buy a gun? It’s almost as if criminals don’t bother complying with gun control laws.
Dem. Rep. Warns GOP: If You Don’t Pass Gun Control Bill, ‘It Will Be A Long Hot Summer’ – “Congress — when I say Congress, I mean the Republicans in Congress — are refusing to address gun violence in America that targets black men and black women and Hispanic men and Hispanic women and, yes, even police officers. Republicans, what on Earth — why are you recoiling and not giving us a debate on gun violence? Why not give it a hearing? Give us a debate. Give us an up or down vote on legislation on gun violence. Why?”
Why are leftist college professors so hate-filled and violent?: Ohio Professor (James Pearce, above) Offers Gun-Control Solution: ‘Storm NRA HQ & Make Sure There Are No Survivors’ – “Look, there’s only one solution.

Police Shootings Highlight Unease Among Black Gun Owners – “The shooting of Philando Castile in the St. Paul suburb of Falcon Heights comes at a time when more blacks appear to view gun ownership as way to shield them from violence. Black communities suffer from gun violence at much higher rates than white ones, but 54 percent of black people said guns did more to protect than endanger personal safety, according to a 2014 Pew Research survey. That is up from 29 percent two years earlier.” Hope and change.

Actually no: Maybe Someone Does Need to Take Our Guns Away – “There are no ‘good guys with guns’ or ‘bad guys with guns,’ just more guns. Always more guns. And profits built on fear, of our neighbors, of ourselves. Instead of protecting us from the nebulous threat of tyranny, gun sales turn everyone into tyrants, presenting lethal force as a reasonable response to any threat. After all, better to kill than be killed. All the more, that seems to be the only choice we have left.”
