The civilian disarmament industrial complex regularly relies on gun-related victims to make their case for increased gun control laws. They think nothing of dancing in the blood of these victims of violence to further their anti-Second Amendment agenda. The Brady Campaign has an entire report on gun-related suicides intended to elicit sympathy for those victimized by “gun violence” and then demand that more laws be passed to restrict civilian ownership of firearms.
Bob Owens’ apparent suicide has added another “gun violence” victim for these paragons of compassion and commmon sense to use to further their agenda. For a glimpse of the depravity of some who would curtail Americans’ enumerated right to keep and bear arms, a look at the comments in the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s Facebook page under a post reporting Mr. Owens’ death is revealing (names redacted to comply with our own no doxxing policy):
Sorry, but this guy may have been indirectly responsible for dozens, even hundreds, of gun deaths. I have sympathy for his family, who probably needed it even before he shot himself, but I have no sympathy for him.
No sympathy from me. He obviously didn’t care about actual statistics. He obviously didn’t care about protecting his family because if he did, he wouldn’t have guns in his home…you know…guns that people use to kill themselves or others.
Consumed by his own pain and Hate. That truly is sad. My condolences to his family and friends. When will we ever learn that toxic masculinity and aggression do not create a peaceful existence or a comforted soul.
Live by the gun, die by the gun. Sorry for his family, but I don’t think he’ll be much of a loss to anyone else.
Poor man was covering his pain by trying to be tough. But, many people just like him are collectively responsible for the deaths and pain of thousands upon thousands of others by promoting our evil gun culture. He may be a sad figure but he chose how to assuage his pain and that way helped to cause incalculable damage to innocent people. So I can’t be sorry he is gone.
Another mentally ill person owning guns…relieved that he didn’t try to take innocent people with him. His note that he left is very telling!
Sorry, but I cannot say that I feel any sorrow. One less pro death person on the earth! To his family, my sympathies.
Oops….Suicide is, or can be, awful……but
I actually respect him for taking only his own life instead of killing innocent people.
He voiced extreme and dangerous views. Sympathy for his family, but not for him.
Not a lot of sympathy for someone who actively spread death culture.
Probably a self loathing gay, who was about to be exposed. Good thing he had a weapon close and within reach.
Good for him. Gun lover. Who who lives by the gun will die by the gun. When is it the turn of …..
At least he killed himself and not his wife and family like so many angry men do
The planet won’t miss him.
I could go on, but you get the picture.
It’s important to remember that the folks on the other side of the issue are fighting just as hard for a cause they believe is right. We may not agree with their opinion, but they deserve the same respect that we would give one of our own. Use these examples as object lesson in how not to act when someone on the other side experiences a tragic event.
