She allegedly shot six people? That's ridiculous right off the bat. Most women don't like guns, much less have that kind of gun handling
I would classify 'ridiculous' as trying to logically move from the general to the specific. Perhaps it is true that "most women don't like guns",
but that has absolutely no bearing on whether or not a woman could have walked in and shot six unarmed people.
And those early reports are usually right.
Not exactly, not this time.
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The woman accused of killing three faculty members at University of Alabama Huntsville has been charged with capital
Police said a female member of the UA-Huntsville faculty shot and killed three co-workers on campus Friday afternoon.
Sources close to the investigation identify the suspect as Dr. Amy Bishop.
Police also have the alleged shooter's husband in custody. He has not been formally charged with anything.
It is completely possible that the husband was unaware of what was about to transpire. Rumors floating around at this time would appear to agree with
this stance, although rumors of course are not fact.
Do ya' ever notice how these shootings always occur in areas where the local congressman has a strong pro-gun rights voting record?
Do you ever wonder why these shootings seem to happen where guns are forbidden outright? It is already illegal to possess any type of firearm in
any capacity except law enforcement anywhere near a school, including a college campus.
That worked out real good this time, didn't it?
One woman apparently walked into a faculty meeting and proceeded to shoot six unarmed
people at point-blank range. They are:
- G. K.
Podila - chairman of the Department of Biological Sciences - DEAD
- Maria Ragland Davis - Associate of the Department of Biological Sciences - DEAD
- Adriel Johnson - Associate of the Department of Biological Sciences - DEAD
- Joseph Leahy - critical condition, Huntsville Hospital
- Luis Rogelio Cruz-Vera - stable condition (upgraded from critical), Huntsville Hospital
- Stephanie Monticello - stable condition, Huntsville Hospital
The UAH website is currently working too slow to get full information on the
latter three's actual titles/positions. Hopefully I can get more information on them later on.
These six people are not at home with their families tonight. Three of them will never again be home with their families. Three lives ended, and three
more thrown into turmoil... and you want to bring gun control into this tragedy? You want to use it to further some political agenda?
How about this for some wild speculation: if only one of these six people (or the others who were in attendance) had been packing a sidearm, would the
shooter then have had time to kill or wound six people before one of them got her? If, as you claim, she was not fully competent with a handgun, how
much time elapsed between aim, fire, aim, fire, aim, fire, aim, fire, aim, fire, aim, fire?
And worse, there were students in the Shelby Center at the time. I know at least one of them. I was desperately trying to call him last night until it
was announced that no students were involved. I got no answer; it went straight to voice-mail. Apparently 'Waldo' (a nickname to protect identity)
is fine, but what if he wasn't? He has high hopes for a bright future which could have been snuffed out in a moment with no way for himself or anyone
around him to protect themselves.
Yeah, take your anti-gun propaganda elsewhere. I really don't want to hear it right now. I'm too busy praying for three lives and six families.
