In Defense Of The Background Check

In the oughts, conservatives would ridicule liberals for blaming everything on George Bush. They gave a name to it: BDS. Bush Derangement Syndrome. It was clever enough, except now the pendulum has swung the other way and now it’s conservatives who have ODS.

Now, I may be wrong, but I don’t recall anyone resorting to violence because of BDS. But as it turns out, a case of ODS can be deadly:

At around 6 p.m. on Tuesday, police in Redding, California responded to a report of shots fired at an apartment building. According to a statement from the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department, what law enforcement found was…sort of expected. A white man in his 50s had fired 6-8 shots into neighboring apartments because he was mad at Obama for attempting to reform gun laws. If that’s not bad enough, he also had a letter from the NRA taped to his window. Once police arrived, he began shooting at them.

“We heard the five shots — everyone was screaming,” resident David Rice recalled. “He came out screaming ‘Obama! Obama! Obama!’ (Police) told him to come out with (his) hands up, and he kept telling them ‘No, no, no.’”

The shooter, whose name has not been released, had a documented history of mental issues and was a felon, but was somehow able to get a gun.

He’s yours, conservatives. Own this.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
