More on the Inglewood Shooting Rampage

The Los Angeles Times reports further to Jadegold's post.

The body of the suspect in a Saturday morning rampage in which five members of an Inglewood family were shot — two fatally — was believed to be found in the ashes of his home, wearing body armor, clutching a revolver and bearing a gunshot wound to the head, police said Sunday.

A corpse was discovered among the remains of a torched house on West 99th Street inhabited by Desmond John Moses, a 55-year-old licensed security guard and the registered owner of the .38-caliber handgun. A positive identification of the body is expected in the coming days.
I suppose this is another one of those exceedingly rare examples of a lawful gun owner going bad. That's one of the weakest arguments the gun-rights fanatics have, that "very few" lawful gun owners commit crimes with their weapons. They keep saying almost all (I've seen 99% quoted) gun crime is done by drug dealers and gang members.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.


  1. Here are the numbers that I keep showing you:

    1. About 100,000,000 gun owners in this country.

    2. More than 300,000,000 guns.

    3. Total injuries and deaths from firearms (all causes): 100,000 per annum.

    That's one tenth of one percent of gun owners.

  2. And again, I note, this was Cali which requires registration, has an AWB, limit on magazine capacity, etc. and all of those laws that you love, mikeb, didn't prevent this crime.

  3. Wow, you showed one incident....Good for you. Now go fuck yourself. 2nd Amendment. Get over it.
