Alleged Kalamazoo Killer Apparently Untouched By Gun Laws, Background Checks

posted on February 23, 2016

The Uber taxicab driver charged with killing six and wounding two Saturday night in Kalamazoo was apparently not affected by Michigan’s gun laws any more than its laws against murder. Nor was he deterred by employers’ “gun-free workplace” rules that give criminals, who ignore those rules, plenty of disarmed and defenseless victims, who obey. 

As usual, President Obama tried to exploit the tragedy Monday, but none of Obama’s supposed “solutions” could have prevented the crimes. Michigan already has handgun registration, has a “permit to purchase” mandate for private handgun sales and requires background checks on all handgun sales. 

What’s more, Uber “prohibits possessing firearms of any kind in a vehicle” and, in addition to the state-mandated background checks required of all handgun purchasers in Michigan, CNN confirmed that Uber did its own background check on the accused killer, as well. So how can another anti-gun law change any of that?
