According to a police source, the guy who shot three people at Florida State University yesterday is Myron May. Here’s a profile. He was a lawyer who graduated from the university with a B.A. in economics in December 2005, and then proceeded to get his JD from Texas Tech University School of Law in December 2009.
The gun grabbers’ usual cacophony of “MOAR GUN CONTROLZ LAWZ” has already begun on my Twitter feed.
None of them can tell us which gun control initiative they advocate would have stopped this shooting.
FSU is a “gun-free” campus (and by “gun-free,” I mean the university disarms its students, in delusional hopes that crazed gunmen will also abide by their disarmament policies). So what are the gun grabbers going to do? Ban guns twice? Yeah, that’ll stop them.
Myron May was an attorney. Until September of this year, he was a felony prosecutor in New Mexico. Fairly sure he probably wasn’t a person who would have had a problem passing a background check.
From his Facebook page, it appears he lost his job as a prosecutor in New Mexico and moved back to Florida in November.
He was very religious, and eerily enough, here was his last Facebook post.
So what initiative would have stopped this guy, who quite obviously was out to commit suicide by cop? When ordered to put down his weapon, he fired at police instead, releasing a shitstorm of bullets. He did not kill anyone. Two victims have been hospitalized. One has been released. It’s quite obvious the coward didn’t mean to kill anyone – just inflict enough damage to have the cops do what he was apparently too chickenshit to do.
So how would MOAR GUN CONTROLZ LAWZ have stopped this?
I’d love to hear some answers from those who advocate said folly.
