Well, guess how Maryland Governor Oh-Mao-Lee sold his litany of strict gun control initiatives in early 2013?
The threat of gun violence “will never go away,” O’Malley said, “but the actions we take may well prevent another tragedy like that in Newtown, Connecticut. . . . It is possible we can make a difference.”
And, Governor, it’s possible your state’s strict gun control was the reason this angry ex-boyfriend of one of the victims thought he could get away with murdering her and her new boyfriend without any meaningful resistance.
He brought a Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun into a “No Guns” mall, pulled it out of a skateboard bag in a dressing room, then hunted down the defenseless victims and shot them with buckshot in cold blood. He then, being the brave soul he was (that’s sarcasm there), turned the gun on himself.
