We're ALL Less Free Because of Illegal Guns, or Illegally Used Legal Firearms

This shouldn't happen to anyone.  No one who is shot, whether killed or just injured, is free when they are the victims of gun violence.  Minnesota is supposed to be one of the safest states in the country, but we still have tragedies like this, far too many of them.

I'm waiting for someone like Anonymous to make excuses for why the victim 'deserved' to be shot.  In case you wonder what I mean, I'm referring to the comment made by one of the many Anonymous commenters back in April:

From the 7/8/'11 STrib:

Teenage girl fatally shot in head in Brooklyn Park

By Paul Walsh

A teenage girl was fatally shot in the head late Thursday in Brooklyn Park, and police are hunting for the killer.
The shooting occurred about 11 p.m. outside an apartment complex near 73rd Avenue and Unity Lane, said Deputy Chief Craig Enevoldsen. The 17-year-old was found dead outside of a car at the Huntington Place apartments.
Enevoldsen said that as officers approached the complex they saw several people standing outside of the car, with one of its doors open. When the officers "lit up the car with their spotlight," those people ran from the scene, Enevoldsen said.
Authorities have yet to release the identity of the victim or say anything about the circumstances leading up to the killing. Enevoldsen said police don't think the victim lived at the apartment complex but aren't sure what brought her there.
As for suspects, "we have no arrests at this point," Enevoldsen said. "It's still really early on."


  1. I hate to disappoint you, one of a long line I suppose, but until more information is given, this Anon will not put the blame on the victim.

  2. Luckily legally used legal firearms outnumber illegally used illegal firearms by orders of magnitude, therefor we're all more free because of legal firearms and legally used legal firearms.

  3. Guns are guns, They all start out legally owned. Some - too many - flow into the criminal world.

    I blame the lawful gun owners who allow that to happen.
