In case you have been living under a rock today (or in a windowless office with no TV, Internet or radio), there’s been a tragedy in Los Angeles. Christopher Jordan Dorner – a former LAPD cop – threatened “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against police in an online manifesto, allegedly shot three police officers (one of them fatally), and is suspected of killing another couple earlier this week.
A manhunt is underway, and they haven’t located him yet.
Meanwhile, his online manifesto professes his deep admiration for… Piers Morgan. Why? Because of his gun control advocacy.
While the search for fired Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner continues, several versions of a manifesto believed to have been written by Dorner have been circulating around the Internet. Many of the versions are redacted to remove the names of Dorner targets.
But a version that was originally posted on Fox’s Los Angeles affiliate KTTV also contained quotes on President Obama, MSNBC, Chris Christie, Jon Huntsman, Hillary Clinton, George H.W Bush, and support for gun control. The version of the manifesto was obtained and posted on Fox LA 12 hours ago, but the link now returns an error page. A representative of Fox LA told BuzzFeed they pulled most of the manifesto after a request from police.
Interesting. Apparently this murderer, one who was issued a gun as a police officer – presumably after a thorough background check and polygraph and mental examination – went on a killing spree, while expressing his support for gun control measures, such as Dianne Feinstein’s “assault” weapons ban.
If you had a well regulated AWB, this would not happen. The time is now to reinstitute a ban that will save lives. Why does any sportsman need a 30 round magazine for hunting? Why does anyone need a suppressor? Why does anyone need a AR15 rifle? This is the same small arms weapons system utilized in eradicating Al Qaeda, Taliban, and every enemy combatant since the Vietnam war. Don’t give me that crap that its not a select fire or full auto rifle like the DoD uses. That’s bullshit because troops who carry the M-4/M-16 weapon system for combat ops outside the wire rarely utilize the select fire function when in contact with enemy combatants. The use of select fire probably isn’t even 1% in combat. So in essence, the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle is the same as the M-4/M-16.
And then he goes on to lionize obsessed gun control lunatic Piers Morgan:
Mr. Morgan, the problem that many American gun owners have with you and your continuous discussion of gun control is that you are not an American citizen and have an accent that is distinct and clarifies that you are a foreigner. I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws but you must understand that your critics will always have in the back of their mind that you are native to a country that we won our sovereignty from while using firearms as a last resort in defense and you come from a country that has no legal private ownership of firearms. That is disheartening to American gun owners and rightfully so.
So a violent murderer, who admits that he would be able to purchase any weapon he wants, because he would easily pass a background check, wants the rest of us disarmed and praises those who would render us into defenseless prey.
I wonder if that’s because he needs more defenseless victims to murder.
Perhaps it would be smart to disarm Piers Morgan fans.
