Pelosi Blames Gun Laws For Murder By Man Deported Five Times

posted on July 25, 2015

Never one to miss a chance to call for more restrictive gun control, U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is blaming lax gun laws for the murder of a San Francisco woman by a seven-time convicted felon, who had been deported five times and used a gun stolen from a federal agent to commit the murder.

Pelosi denies that San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” status—meaning the city simply ignores federal immigration laws—had anything to do with the murder. “What we also have to look at is, how did this person come into possession of a gun in a state where his having a gun as a convicted felon would raise serious questions,” Pelosi said Thursday. 

Actually, Pelosi knows that possession of a gun by a felon is illegal throughout the nation, and she likely knows the gun used in this case was stolen. She just doesn’t want to let facts muddle up a good photo opportunity.
