I read this recent posting by Miguel at GunFreeZone with interest, and am reprinting it in full. Miguel’s comments are neat. My comments follow.
The sorrowful headline from Vox:
Early Sunday morning, a Chicago house party held to memorialize a member of the community who died from gun violence last spring was interrupted by two gunmen who opened fire in and around the house, wounding 13 people, four of whom are in critical condition.
Dear G-d! How awful! People shot during a remembrance of another innocent victim of Gun Violence! When will the madness stop?
The party was being held to commemorate the birthday of Lonell Irvin, a 22-year-old man who was shot and killed during an attempted carjacking in April.
The poor man. Who was Lonell Irvin? I am sure we have a young fella probably on his way to church or school and was mowed down by criminals with guns provided by Dana Loesch and the NRA. Let me see if I can get more information on the poor soul.
He was in his 2015 BMW when he was rear-ended by a 22-year-old man in a 2019 Volkswagen, according to officials.
When the man in the BMW got out to check the damage to his vehicle, police have said, the other driver pulled a weapon, announced a carjacking, demanded the man’s keys and shoved the man into the BMW, where he was able to retrieve his own gun from an area on the passenger side of the car and fatally shoot the man in the head. The man who was fatally shot was identified as Lonell Irvin, 22, of the 5700 block of May Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. (Bold mine)
Police say concealed carry license holder won’t be charged in fatal Loop shooting: ‘He was the victim’
A party thrown to celebrate the life of a violent criminal ends up in more violence and Vox has the gonads to try and pass it as Gun Violence to keep harping gun control c***? They are not even bothering to at least disguise which way they actually lean.
And then they complain why we won’t trust them.
Nathan: As I said, Miguel’s comments are telling. Time after time, we have the media lie and put incredible spin on anything to do with guns and self-defense. And too many people still believe the mainstream media. Just as they continue to believe the governments.
As Mama Liberty frequently noted, we never learn the whole story, and we have to take everything we read or hear with deep suspicion and skepticism.
