TKC BLOG COMMUNITY SHARES EXCLUSIVE IMAGE OF MAN KILLED AMID SHAWNEE WALMART SHOOTOUT!!! QUESTION: WAS DEADLY CRIME SCENE GUN FIGHT A WIN FOR 2ND AMENDMENT OR FAIL FOR INCREASINGLY VIOLENT SUBURBS?!?!
Let's start with the facts . . .
Thanks to readers of this blog, we're sharing an image of the guy killed during a Shawnee gun fight, first responders coming to his aid and securing the scene whilst looky-loos stare in the background. The man lying on the ground was suspected in an assault of a woman with a child and an altercation that turned violent. The image is fair use and fair play given the tragic circumstances of yesterday's deadly shootout that continue to rock the nearby middle-class enclave of Johnson County.
But more than just an accounting of the incident, let's talk about the implications . . .
WAS THIS DEADLY GUN FIGHT A GOOD THING OR SIMPLY A SIGN OF INCREASING SUBURBAN VIOLENCE AND HIGHER STAKES FOR PEOPLE WHO JUST WANT TO DO A BIT OF SUNDAY SHOPPING?!?!
Internets tough guys talk a good game about freedom and fighting but most of them only confront a keyboard, a bag of Cheetos and crushing loneliness. Whereas some "progressives" continue their hope that Hillary will confiscate the guns of everybody who didn't buy her last book.
But I digress . . .
The question here is one of public safety, the Constitution and the tragic fact that gun fights simply aren't good for business no matter who wins.
You decide . . .
