It's tragic what happened to his father, but there is no doubt he is being used as a prop by Obama and other anti-gun politicians and special interest groups. He has to blame something for the tragedy, so he blames guns. Of course, the murderer who killed his father violated several existing laws, and no new law would have stopped that incident. So it is therefore foolish to propose even more laws that will only punish law-abiding gun owners. And Keith Ellison is nothing more than a liberal hack politician who always gloms onto whatever the latest news story is to get more media coverage. He should be ashamed.
I'd like to parade someone around who had a parent die from a car crash. Their message should be "we need to restrict cars". Anyone who opposes is heartless. THEIR PARENT DIED FROM A CAR!!!!!
This was a terrible, senseless act, from a deranged individual. You can't legislate against crazy.
