How Did the Michigan State University Shooter Get a Gun? Blame Progressive Politics
MSU gunman’s uncle says he was ‘paranoid schizophrenic’ who should have been locked up over 2019 felony gun charge instead of being freed to kill three
Despite not knowing what sort of weapon [was] used to terrorize the MSU campus, President Biden immediately used the tragedy to call for an assault weapons ban.
“Every American should exclaim “enough” and demand Congress take action,” Biden said.
Anthony Dwayne McRae was arrested in 2019 on felony charges that he was carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.
[The] George Soros-backed prosecutor allowed him to plead guilty to a lesser charge, one that kept him out of prison and allowed him to legally purchase another gun once his period of probation ended.
Michigan State Shootings: Enforce Existing Gun Laws. Please.
Calls for stricter gun laws began emanating from the left as soon as news broke about the horrific tragedy at Michigan State University in East Lansing on Monday.
There, a homicidal maniac shot up two buildings. He opened fire and killed three students, injured 5 and eventually shot himself.
The shooter – Anthony Dwayne McRae – was 43 years old and was “known to local police.”
Color me unsurprised.
There are inconvenient facts that get in the way of the predictable cries for more and tougher gun laws.
First is that McRae was arrested in 2019 on felony charges that he was carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. If convicted, The Detroit News reports that he could have gone to prison for five years and would have been prohibited from legally owning a gun.
Instead, a bleeding heart George Soros-backed prosecutor allowed him to plead guilty to a lesser charge, one that kept him out of prison and allowed him to legally purchase another gun once his period of probation ended.
Details about the prosecutor who allowed McRae to plead to a misdemeanor instead of a felony are troubling as well. Former Ingham County district attorney Carol Siemon, a Democrat, retired in December.
