But knowing the gun bigots, you will soon enough.
Bent on fame and exacting revenge on the people she believed responsible for her pain and isolation, police say Natalie Carpenter plotted with 19-year-old accomplice Peter Thulin to covertly sneak into Danbury High School, hold students and staff hostage and shoot “until everyone was dead.”
This very troubled young woman was living in a group home called Hope House because she was, to put it less than gently, fucked in the head. The staff at Hope House let her “come and go as she pleased.” Two of the comings and goings were to a local gun shop and to the local Wal-Mart. At both of these locations, she was turned down when she attempted to purchase a shotgun. The gun bigots are pointing to Connecticut’s new firearms laws as what stopped her from making her purchases.
She phoned in threats to the school which, along with a tip from one of her friends about her ranting about killing people at a school, led to her arrest. After her arrest, they searched her room and found her journal/diary with even more evidence of her fucked in the headness and took her away.
However, in this link, which repeats the tale above but is nowhere to be found at the gun bigot’s sites or the leftosphere news sites where I first picked up on the story, it mentions that she was refusing to take her maintenance medications. Even during this time, the Hope House staff let her keep her “come and go as she pleased” privileges.
Why did they not put her on some type of probation that limited her movements? Why did they not send her back to a state run mental facility for people who don’t take their medications? That is the job of a halfway house, isn’t it?
I’m sure we’ll never hear about who, if anyone, is going to be punished for letting this obviously dangerously mentally deranged adult citizen roam the streets when and where ever she wanted.
And because no one gets in trouble for letting the criminally insane loose on the streets, the rest of the residents of Connecticut have to deal with fewer civil rights than residents of other states with sane firearms laws.
And the gun bigots on the left and in the news (but I repeat myself) get to lie by omission and say that their new limits on civil rights “stopped a massacre”.
Because those are the only victories they get these days.
