Four days before a black-clad gunman walked into a south Texas church and sprayed the congregation with bullets, killing at least 26 people, late-night host Samantha Bee highlighted the connection between men with a history of domestic violence and the perpetrators of mass shootings.
In her segment, Bee challenges the claim that it’s impossible to predict or prevent mass shootings.
“Abused women are the canary in the coal mine for mass shootings,” Bee says, before advocating for stronger laws to keep guns away from those convicted of domestic violence.
Um, one thing she apparently doesn’t realize is that you can’t buy a gun if you’ve been convicted of domestic violence. That’s a big no-no – See Line 11(i) on Form 4473
I was in Walmart just the other day and saw a guy turned down from buying a Marlin 22LR because he had a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction from 1998 – 19 years ago.
