Seller of gun used in massacre speaks at Va. Tech-CNN

From CNN: "Eric Thompson, owner of TGSCOM, a company based in Green Bay, Wisconsin, sold a Walther .22-caliber handgun to Cho, who killed 32 people and himself on April 16, 2007."

I find his comments quite interesting.

To a protester with a "Guns Kill/Protest Easy Guns" shirt in the audience: "Guns kill, they certainly do, but so do cars and all sorts of other things. What we need to do is focus on the person that's doing the killing."

Funny that he didn't focus very hard on the person when that killer bought a gun from him? Why no background check? Why did he not speak about decreasing the ability for unstable people to own guns, or increasing the requirements for reporting of psychological illness to more effectively limit unstable people's ability to get them?

Are we bound by the second amendment to only stop people from killing after they have bought a gun or do we have a right to limit dumbass/psychotic people from getting them? But, what do you expect from someone like this, deep nuanced thought?

Instead we get this spiel that completely misses the point: "If you don't use your rights, you lose them," Thompson said. "You're in charge of your own life, and if you don't take charge of it, someone else will do it for you."

I'm sorry, I didn't realize this was about everyone needing to buy a gun to keep the activist judges from prying it from their cold dead hand. I thought this was about the fact that some psychotic, who needed help, didn't get that help and instead this fucker sold him a gun which he used to kill 32 people. Yet, eh does not mention that maybe he might be just a touch at fault for selling the gun to Cho.

What I get from this is that he would rather that psychotics be equally able to get guns as the rest of the population, thus abdicating societies right to have law inforcement nip the problem in the bud, and instead leave everyone else to, "take charge of your life." Of course "take charge of your life" in this case means, "protect your life" by buying a pistol from his online store.

Doesn't this run immediately to anarchy? Rather than let law inforcement enforce the laws in a way that protects everyone we should be expected to fend for our lives against the people who shouldn't have guns in the first place, all to maintain the purity of the second amendment?

Reason #2 today why I think guns mostly suck and stupid people suck even more. May the great Flying Spagetti Monster on high piss in his meatballs for all of eternity.
