Over the years I have noticed that Gun Control Inc has this smarmy way of talking about the people they allegedly want to keep guns out of the hands of.
Face it the rich elites behind Gun Control Inc have body guards, the police actually respond when they call them. Should they fall victim to murder or violence the police will spend months and all sorts of individual police effort on catching the perpetrator.
Working class people are on their own when it comes to self defense. Things are far worse for people of color or people labeled “white trash”. Maybe they are hippies, bikers, sex workers or just ordinary folks doing the hard work and dirty jobs the rich elites behind Gun Control Inc would never dirty their hands doing.
I might agree that the Second Amendment needs amending. It needs to clearly state that individuals have the human right to defend their lives and physical safety with weapons including not just guns but knives and other martial arts weapons.
Gun ownership is a right not a privilege.
A woman in Charleston, W.Va., may have saved her own life and the lives of many other women, as well, when she shot and killed an alleged attacker in her home last week.
Neal Falls showed up at the woman’s home on July 18 after answering an escort ad she had placed on Backpage.com, according to police. He showed up with a “kill list,” multiple pairs of handcuffs and a Subaru full of weapons and tools, including a shovel, knives, a bulletproof vest, a machete, bleach, trash bags, sledgehammers and axes, according to Fox affiliate KPTV.
In Falls’s pocket, police said, was a list of names of potential future victims, all of whom are sex workers who advertised on Backpage, according to the Daily Dot.
Now investigators are trying to determine whether Falls, 45, was responsible for a string of slayings targeting sex workers in Ohio and Nevada, the station reported.
“We have been able to locate most of them and they were all on a website advertising for escort services,” Lt. Steve Cooper of the Charleston Police Department told the Huffington Post on Wednesday. “The stuff that we found is so alarming that we want law enforcement across the country to be aware of it.”
From the moment Falls showed up at the home of his latest alleged victim, a sex worker, he turned violent, the victim — who asked not to be identified — told KPTV.
“I knew he was there to kill me,” she said. “I could tell that he had already done something because he said that he was going to prison for a long time. And that’s when I knew he was gonna kill me.”
The woman told the station that Falls, who was from Springfield, Ore., pulled a gun on her and began strangling her. She said she had a split second in which to take control of the situation.
“When he strangled me he just wouldn’t let me get any air,” she said. ” I grabbed my rake and when he laid the gun down to get the rake out of my hands, I shot him. I just grabbed the gun and shot behind me.”
After the shooting, the woman stood in an alley while a neighbor called police. In a recording of that phone call played by KPTV, the woman’s panicked voice can be heard in the background.
