This isn't about someone who used a gun to defend against bad guys.
I have become concerned about what appears to me to be a concerted attack on our rights. Perhaps this post belongs elsewhere; but I put it here because all the events that I think are likely being planned out appear right here, in Personal Defense in the News.
I have long been a defender of gun rights. Back in 1989, a man named Patrick Purdy shot up a schoolyard in Stockton, CA using an AK-47 knockoff. Due to a number of facts surrounding that case, I am convinced that he (Purdy) was drugged or hypnotized and sent off to do this evil deed. Why? So as to produce support for the California assault weapon ban.
Think about it. What good does shooting up a schoolyard do for a petty crook like Purdy? And why use an assault rifle? And why was this happening right in the middle of attempts by anti-gunners to get an assault weapon ban passed in CA?
Fast forward to today. Now we see in the news, mall shootings, university shootings, "nutcases" shooting up city hall, etc. You know, there are folks that are very rich that hate America -- do you really think they don't have the wherewithall to concoct these events? All it takes is to find someone that is already disaffected or angry, who has a bone to pick, and do mind control on them and have them carry out whatever you want!
Our gun rights are under attack by evil people. We need to be aware of what is going on to deal with this.
