“They are saying this killer, who we should not name, used a shotgun and pistol, not any kind of high-caliber repeating weapon, not a semi-automatic weapon. In many ways, this is a spanner thrown into their rhetoric of people who believe in universal background checks – wouldn’t have had any impact on this. On magazines – wouldn’t have had any impact on this.
“At close range, we discovered, shotguns are as lethal. Point being, this is about identifying and segregating individuals away from guns who are not in the position to own them with due process protection. To the teachers and administrators out there, the trench coat is kind of a giveaway. You might just say, ‘No more trench coats.’ The creepy people, make a list, check it twice.” – Hugh Hewitt, speaking today on his radio show.
