Here’s a victory for gun control. This man didn’t shoot himself.
Sheriff Office’s detectives believe a Brevard man found dead Saturday morning in the French Broad River killed himself.
Lt. Randy Sorrells said 51-year-old (Victim) jumped from the bridge on the Blue Ridge Parkway on Tuesday about 10 minutes after a cab driver dropped him off there.
How’s that a victory for gun control?
He was a convicted felon. That means he was legally barred from possessing a gun. So instead of shooting himself, he took a swan dive off this bridge.
Good thing he didn’t have a gun, he might have hurt himself.
Don’t think I’m making light of the situation, I’m not. Suicide is a preventable tragedy. But gun grabbers love to dance in the blood of people who kill themselves with a gun. They count on the more than half of all “gun deaths” that are suicides to make up their numbers. Go read this post again. See how most of the “gun deaths” are suicides.
To the gun grabbers, this story is a perfect tragedy. Had he shot himself, they could have made all sorts of hay about a felon getting “easy” guns, and then they could have added one more number to their “gun deaths” file. The fact that he killed himself by jumping off a bridge means that he’s a total loss to them.
The fact that he was a human being, and that maybe a kind word and a useful place in the world might have saved him, are utterly immaterial to the gun grabbers. You see, they don’t want to stop suicide. They want to stop guns.
