…another member of the elite exploiting her personal tragedy to restrict the rights of the people who didn’t visit this tragedy upon her!
Then two years ago, (Yvonne) Vann had to confront the worst nightmare of her career. Her husband, Kenneth Vann, also a sheriff’s sergeant, was killed when a gunman armed with an AR-15 and a 90-round drum magazine riddled his car with bullets….Since his death, Yvonne has become a vocal activist for a ban on military-style weapons, a nebulous term but one she defines as guns with pistol grips, folding stocks, barrel shrouds to cool the weapon as it fires, high-capacity magazines, threads or mounts for accessories such as bayonets and flash suppressors.
She’s joined the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and has lobbied state legislators for restrictions on weapons sales.
But fear not, friends! She supports the Second Amendment. She says so herself!
“I’m for the Second Amendment. I’m a gun-toting person myself,” Vann said, gesturing at her service weapon.
So because Yvonne Vann’s job requires her to carry a weapon, she supports the Second Amendment? Talk about your fuzzy logic.
But you know where it’s going to go next, don’t you? After the AR-15s, they will come after the Glocks. All it’s going to take, if that, is one more Virginia Tech-type shooting.
And how nice that William McManus supports yet more laws that punish good people while doing nothing to put the habitual violent criminals responsible for this sort of thing in jail and keep them there.
