Dylan Roof

The Charelston self-taught racist who gunned down 9 people at the oldest black church in SC was not allowed to buy a gun because of a previous drug felony. When he went to buy the Glock that he used in the crime the owner dutifully filed the FBI notification and told him he could come back in 3 days to get the gun. Since the gun shop did not hear from the FBI after the 72 hour period, he walked out with the gun.
The FBI later called to tell the shop not to sell the gun --- 12 days after the massacre had taken place.
There are not words adequate to express how wrong and stupid this is.

2. Or put the blame where it belongs, on the gun lobby's strangle hold on legislators in ongress.

Did you know that George W. Bush allocated $1.3 billion to improve and upgrade the NICS database way back in 2007? Do you know that to date almost none of it has been spent?

“Everybody knew what was going on — the NRA never wanted any records kept,” says former Congressman James Moran.

He was from SC, and is a racist scumbag with a gun fetish.
