Been waiting for it: Gun Grabber tries to link I-270 sniper to CCW debate

Up to now, there has been no discussion of the I-270 sniper on this website. But leave it to a gun ban extremist to try and link the two in a Cleveland Plain Dealer letter to the editor.

More guns don't make more sense


How is it possible that, as people die along Interstate 270 from gunshots, state legislators pass a bill making it easier to carry firearms?

Gun proponents argue that an increase in gun violence is a reason to have more guns - an irrational and dangerous argument. Yet they have managed to infect the legislature with their beliefs, and as a result, we all suffer.

Mark Cassell

Cassell, a Kent State University assistant professor of political science, should know better. While having a concealed firearm would not have aided any of these victims in defending themselves, these tragic crimes around Columbus are once again highlighting the absolute failure of gun control to prevent crimes like these from occurring.

In addition, these shootings once again consistent with findings that multiple victim public shootings occur more frequently in states where concealed carry is illegal.

What is even more ironic about Cassell's letter to the Plain Dealer is that the same paper once featured a headline, entitled "Gun backers are quick to spin every tragedy"
