News Flash: Seven-Time Felon Breaks The Law—Again

posted on July 9, 2015

An illegal immigrant, whose rap sheet included seven felony convictions and five deportations, decided to shoot at some sea lions off a San Francisco pier. Using a gun stolen from a federal agent’s car, he began firing—ultimately striking and killing 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle. 

Afterwards, media outlets wondered how Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez was able to get his hands on a firearm in the gun-control utopia of the left coast. They asked the question as wide-eyed innocents—seemingly unable to comprehend that a felon with a disregard for immigration laws, drug laws and homicide laws would have a similar disdain for gun laws. A simple reminder for those mired in the anti-gun fog: Laws only affect the law-abiding. 

The real question reporters should be asking is, “Why was Sanchez roaming free in the first place?” That’s one answer the family of Kathryn Steinle would dearly love to hear.
