Michael Reagan: Mass murder knee-jerks in the anti-gun lobby
You all know who he is. But I’m not going to repeat the name of the 22-year-old crazy person who stabbed or shot six young people to death near the UC Santa Barbara campus last week. I’m not going to quote from his insane 137-page “manifesto,” either. It just spews his...
