Sometimes, even when you comply with the demands of the bad guys, they still kill you.
The student body president at UNC Chapel Hill was abducted, sexually assaulted, and then robbed. She plead for her life, and also asked her captors to pray with her. They shot her four times with a handgun then shot her in the head with a shotgun.
Of course, the victim had no ability to defend herself. She wasn't 21 and thus couldn't legally purchase a handgun. She was a student in a victim disarmament zone (college campus). The criminals -- prohibited persons and multiple felons, but I'll let Sean provide the details -- ignored multiple laws in the course of their murderous spree. Our victim was left with few options, tried to comply, and still got killed.
Yet somehow, gun control activists will spin this as something to use to score political points. In fact, North Carolinians Against Gun Violence already did a blood dance and discussed how they could exploit the Carson murder for political gain ("Chuck said it is a mistake not to take advantage of the high profile of the Eve Carson shooting.").
Interestingly, they decided that writing to the paper was not effective:
"We will no longer write letters to the N&O in response to a shooting. This does not work. Roxane had a conversation with Winston-Salem member, Ann Robinson whose husband works with a newspaper. She found that for every letter we write there are several more from the other side. Sue said her minister was devastated about Eve Carson’s shooting and did not want to hear about anything on our issue. "
They did discuss, "getting a packet of information to every university safety officer to offer our help." What kind of help is a gun control group going to offer to a campus cop? Can NCGV call upon the combined powers of the VPC and Brady Campaign to fix the flux capacitor in the gun-free zone's magic anti-gun forcefield? Apparently the device is malfunctioning if felons with multiple convictions can get onto campus with their firearms in order to commit armed mayhem.
Another columnist (possibly associated with the NCGV, I'm not sure) devolved into Markley's Law, making penis jokes:
Any you wonder why we can't have a discussion with the gun control people. They refuse to engage on a rational level and fail to provide any actionable solutions while insisting that law abiding people turn themselves into victims-in-waiting.
