UK Anti-Gun Campaigner is Stabbed to Death in Her Home
H/T to Wizbang on the heads up.
As sad as the circumstances do seem - you really can't make this stuff up, folks. Apparently, the grandson of the prominent anti-gun activist, Pat Regan, is the lead suspect in the violent crime.
According to the report from the BBC, Regan began campaigning against guns and gang violence after her son was shot back in 2002. Although, little is mentioned about the details surrounding her son Danny's death, this seems like another situation where the home's environmental aspects likely came into play regarding the tragic events for this family, a lot more so than any composite of metals, plastics and gun powder... But, it's always easier to blame inanimate objects that can't voice a defense for themselves.
If there are those who now are going to jump on the anti-knife bandwagon, will we one day be left with nothing more than those Betty Crocker icing spreader 'thingies' as eating utencils?
Seems like a good time to revisit a great opinion piece by John Stossel from a few months back from Townhall.com - Guns Save Lives.
