We’ve heard about the shooting at a Waffle House. What you may not know is that the shooter’s father returned his guns. The shooter had been arrested for trespassing on White House grounds and never should have had a gun in the first place, but he did. Because they gave those confiscated guns to his father and his father gave them back.
This wasn’t a failure of the system. Because the entire system is broken.
Not only should the shooter be held accountable but so should his father. For reasons that are beyond obvious. Both need to be jailed. And someone needs to close this loophole to make sure that this will never happen again.
As to whether or not anything will be done about either issue, we’ll have to wait and see. But I don’t have a lot of confidence that anything truly meaningful will be done.
