this time from the FBI themselves!
EXCERPT: “The FBI has published a brief report on the shooting in Alexandria. It is devastating to the idea that the gun-control measures presently coveted by the Democratic party would have done something to prevent the attack.
Over the past two decades, Democrats have focused on three major proposals for reform. They are:
1) That all private transfers should be contingent upon a federal background check;
2) That firearms that look a certain way should be classed as “assault weapons” and prohibited from sale; and
3) That civilians should be forbidden from buying magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
None of these proposals intersect with what happened in Alexandria. First, the FBI confirms that Hodgkinson moved to Virginia in March of 2017: In March 2017, Hodgkinson, of Belleville, Illinois, told a family member that he was traveling to Washington D.C., but he did not provide any additional information on his travel. FBI analysis of Hodgkinson’s computers showed a Google search of truck stops, maps, and toll-free routes to the Northern Virginia area. Prior to his travel, local law enforcement in Belleville had been called to Hodgkinson’s residence due to complaints of target practice he was conducting on his property. Local law enforcement requested he keep the noise down but determined Hodgkinson was not in violation of any local laws. Hodgkinson’s prior criminal record includes a charge of domestic battery in 2006.”
And here is where it derails the Democruds and their gun control efforts.
- Hodgkinson purchased his SKS 7.62mm caliber rifle in March 2003 from a Federally licensed firearms dealer and a background check was done.
- Hodgkinson purchased his 9mm handgun in November 2016, AGAIN, legally through a Federally licensed firearms dealer. And AGAIN, a bg was done.
- Hodgkinson bought the guns in Illinois, as an Illinois resident, LEGALLY.
So idiots like David Frum mewled about Virginia’s “lax gun laws” when in reality, they were purchased in a State where guns are nearly verboten to every one but the elite! Moreover, the Obama asskisser Frum then bleated about more “common sense” bullshit from the Left and this also puts to rest the bullshit spewed from attention whore Giffords and her douchebag husband.
Oh, and one more stake to drive into the heart of the gun-grabbing bastards…
Hodgkinson obtained the Illinois REQUIRED possession-and-purchase license, called (FOID) for short, that “allows” the hoi polloi to buy a weapon and have it tracked by the fascist Democrats who run the State (BTW, into the ground as we are seeing). The gun-grabbers would LOVE to make this a requirement in all 57 States but evidently it, like Liberalism, doesn’t work.
And typically, like all Beta male weenies, Obama’s main butt-snorkler, David Frum, gets it wrong AGAIN when he whines about Alexandria’s open carry law when the opposite is true. Alexandria is a carry-conceal area ONLY! (https://www.vcdl.org/CarryInfo)
Finally, it appears that Hodgkinson’s SKS came with a 10 round magazine, just like the gun-grabbers would like to limit us to.
Please, stop all of this winning, the Gunny can’t take it anymore. Oh wait, just kidding. His mug of schadenfreude runneth over!
