“Fans of Christina Grimmie have begun calling for guns to be banned in wake of her death,” themirror.co.uk reports. “The Voice star was tragically shot dead as she signed autographs at a concert in Florida on Friday. In the US, the deadly weapons are allowed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. The controversial bill says: ‘The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.'” Kudos to The Mirror for not including the militia clause. Brickbats to Grimmie fans reacting to her shooting by taking to #banguns.
On the other hand, I welcome news of gun control advocates who don’t hide behind the “I support the Second Amendment but — ” rubric. If politicians like, say, Hillary Clinton would drop her “common sense gun laws” pretenses and come out of the civilian disarmament closet, Americans could understand that statists gotta state state state. And send them packing. Which is why anti-gun rights pols prevaricate. Meanwhile, condolences to Ms, Grimmie fans, friends and family.
BTW: The venue was a “gun free zone.”
