The Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ posted an ad featuring the brother of a woman gunned down by her husband. Who had a restraining order against him. According to Zina Haughton’s brother and self-professed NRA member, “had there been a background check my sister Zina would still be with us.” [The caption says “a background check could have saved Zina’s life”]. I wonder why MAIG’s anti-gun agit-prop doesn’t mention the fact that Radcliffe F. Haughton murdered two other women in the shooting? Or that there’d been ample warning that Haughton was crazy and violent, including a Facebook photo where he aimed a gun at the camera and previous contact with the cops. Maybe the po-po or the courts should have done something before Haughton pulled the trigger. And you know what else could have saved Zina and the other women? If she’d been armed. Or maybe someone else at the salon. You know: a good guy with a gun.
