    A Convicted Murderer's Case for Gun Control - Atlantic Mobile

    "Despite the Xanax dulling my emotions, my heart pounded when I picked up the M16. A rush of power surged through me when I felt the trigger. I pointed in the driver's side window... and squeezed..."

    Emphasis added. I don't even think this was really written by a murderer. He claimed to use an M16 and the rest of the article seems like it was written by somebody with an extensive vocabulary, not a street thug. I doubt the prison schools are working that well. Nonetheless, its shameful that this article would even be published. Convicted murderers' advice is worth exactly nothing to me, as it should be to everyone else.

    I agree, this appears this story appears to be heavily scrubbed\enhanced to forward a Liberal agenda. I don't think a street thug would care about specific politicians, bills, and ect and he is very specific. The M16 is also confusing, as it's highly unlikely to be obtained via a straw purchase as his blog suggest. However it does point to a gun-ignorant activist author. Even if we assume it was a AR15, his booking date (Linked in story) was 2-2004. The AWB didn't sunset until 9-2004.

    TTP: It doesn't matter who wrote this. Since the rifle he used could not have been obtained via a legal purchase, his entire theory of "If I couldn't get a gun, I wouldn't have commit the murder" is completely worthless.

    So we are supposed to take advice from someone so weakminded that they can be convinced to do somethng they consider morally reprehensible?

    Yep. His arguement that America allowed him to get the gun is full of it.

    He actively broke laws to get that gun.

    Ha! He is a criminal, we do not care what he thinks. The gun didn't make him do anything, neither did America. This is the typical BS they try to get people to believe. Yeah, dude YOU are the victim... Pansy.

    Just consider the source. Of course, with this article it is hard to determine if the source and the author are one and the same.

    If I spend more time outside, will the chances increase that an M16 will fall out the sky into my hands (only while in the US of course)?

    Very well written piece of fiction.

    Yep, to some anti-gun zealots murderers have a great deal of credibility.

    Imagine that. A murderer trying to place ALL of the blame on the gun and not himself. Nope, no self-serving agenda there...

    I wonder if the Lib journalist made moon eyes at the muscled Con he ghost wrote for?

    Actually there are many inmates who can write that well, Some are also artistic. But they are also criminals. The drivel about how he has bought "leagal" guns, and only the gun made him do it, are just him rationalising what he has done. And he is working up this slick story to try and con the next parroll board into bealiving he has reformed. After all he is helping us by writing these thoughtful articles to keep others from going down that path! Yes this looks like the work of an inmate but no inmate ever helps you out unless he thinks hes helping himself. DR

    I have known a few well educated inmates but they were usually preoccupied with Middle Ground or NAMBLA. Maybe they are different in your neck of the woods. Still looks ghost written to me.
