Blame the shooter, not law-abiding gun owners

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The truth is that if there is any political blame for any shooting, then the shooting of six Philadelphia cops lies directly at the feet of Mayor Jim Kenney himself. Now we can talk all day about what made shooter Maurice Hill such a monster, but there is no mystery as to why a hardened criminal like him had “an unlimited supply of weapons and an unlimited supply of bullets,” which he used to send six police officers to the hospital. If gun laws are truly the answer to gun violence in America then let’s start with the simple, obvious ones. If you violate gun laws, you will be charged and you will be prosecuted and you will pay the price.
