LA Times blames rouge ex-cop on lack of gun control

(sorry if this is a dupe in WC; can't check it yet)

LA Times "journalist" George Skelton is convinced that if we pass enough laws, we can make evil go away.

But the officers that shot up a Toyota Tacoma(while looking for a Nissan Titan) are okay.....

What about post office employees fired from their jobs?

What about senators who were voted out of office?

Sure lets make a bill that if a cop misses work without calling for a week can never own a weapon.....

Uh, what?!

From what I saw/read this guy lost his job for "making false statements". Now as a cop I assume he made these either to other cops or in court. If Joe citizen had done either they would at the very least be not law-abiding at the most in jail.

He wanted to bring out his cheekbones for the TV.

Agreed. And if we take the guy's manifesto at face value, he's been a ticking time bomb for almost his entire life, prone to spontaneous assault and battery. "Law abiding" does not compute.

Does a dishonorable discharge from the military preclude someone from being able to later own a firearm? This is a new one on me because unless I'm mistaken, a DD is neither a felony (unless there was a felonious charge associated with it) nor turning a service member into a mental case. Would it automatically preclude you, or is it something that would have to addressed on a case by case basis?

And I love this one:
Quote:
It makes such comments as this one recently uttered by National Rifle Assn. executive Wayne LaPierre look particularly inane and off target: "Law-abiding gun owners will not accept blame for the acts of violent or deranged criminals."

News flash: Some law-abiders do become violent criminals.
Well...duh. A person is always a law-abider until the moment they commit a crime.

What a crappy article.

Man, there's a big challenge--finding some legitimate (i.e. non-biased, fact-reporting) news media

This prohibition does NOT include persons with a bad conduct discharge or any other less than honorable discharge.

What can you expect when the "expert source" consulted is that anti-gun hack Garen Wintemute? The methodology used in his research has been widely refuted for years.
