Let’s review the case of Susan K Browder’s daughter, Sara Browder Harris,
A disgusting crime that would have been punished with life imprisonment had he not took the coward’s way out.
Yesterday I posted about (Ex) mayor Bloomberg’s idiotic cry for more infringements on that which shall not be infringed. He couldn’t even give us Christmas as a day of rest. This morning I received this comment from the murder victim’s mother.
My daughter was murdered by a man whose only prior convictions were misdemeanors, numbers 1 and 3, per Mr. Bloomberg’s criteria. I am sure that hers would not have been the only life saved if these criteria had been available as preventative tools. The right to life should preempt the right of a nut case to have easy access to a murder weapon. Why is that concept not easy to grasp?
I responded with
Susan: Your daughter was murdered by an active duty Marine, with access to weapons far beyond what he could have purchased at the store.
I reiterate what I said. If his crimes were serious enough that they warranted the loss of his civil rights, he should have been charged with and convicted of a felony. Until that time, he was a free man living in a free country.
Your pain and loss does not give you the power to take our rights away. None of us was involved in murdering your daughter, so please do us the courtesy of leaving us alone.
Why do people believe that their pain and loss means I should lose my rights? Why do they believe that they have some sort of supreme moral authority to order us to abandon our rights?
Most of all, why do they believe that when they invoke their “authority” as associated victims of violent crime that we will meekly stand and refuse to tell them that they overstep the bounds of decency? They will, of course, scream that I am a terrible person for not immediately bowing to the demands of a woman whose daughter was murdered.
Comments are open on the other post if you have your own questions to ask Ms. Browder. Unlike the anti-gunners, I won’t censor their answers.
