Aurora shooting victims ranged from intern to plant manager

Those killed in the Aurora shooting have included the plant manager, human resources manager and an intern working his first day. Gary Martin pulled out a gun and began shooting, killing the three people in the room with him and two others outside and wounding a sixth employee, right after learning Friday that he was being fired from his job at the Henry Pratt Co.

This just demonstrates the media is grasping at straws trying to find sensationalist stories. How do we make more articles on a shooting? Just use the victims as click bait for the title.

From the ABC news article: 'Martin, 45, had six arrests over the years in Aurora, one of Chicago’s far western suburbs, for what police Chief Kristen Ziman described as “traffic and domestic battery-related issues” and for violating an order of protection. He also had a 1995 felony conviction for aggravated assault in Mississippi that should have prevented him from buying his gun.' So Illinois State Police were aware of the shooters Mississippi felony conviction, yet let him keep his hand gun when they denied a conceal carry permit. What good are gun laws if they are not enforced?

Why did the State of Illinois give a violent felon a permit to legally purchase a firearm?

So he was legally allowed to own a gun, then convicted of felony, and the government failed to revoke his license and confiscate all his guns when they were supposed to. The articles are insinuating this is somehow the seller's fault? Sounds like they had the appropriate regulations in place, just didn't execute them.

After reading this list of 'national emergencies' I'm stunned. Many of these surprise me. Our open borders are a far bigger national emergency!
