Rare Truth From A Gun Prohibitionist

posted on June 9, 2015

The case of Carol Bowne, the New Jersey woman stabbed to death while waiting for the state to approve her application for a handgun permit, is infuriating to those who respect the Second Amendment. But even one anti-gun advocate recently managed to speak the truth about the murder—however unintentional it might have been.

The Courier-Post recently reported that Jane Shivas, executive director for the New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women and an Everytown for Gun Safety supporter, said: “We will never know whether Carol would be alive today if she had received her gun permit and purchased a gun.”

Truer words were never spoken: We will never know because the state’s laws allowed Bowne to be murdered by not giving her the chance to even try to defend herself. To borrow an often-misused phrase from the gun haters, “If even one life could be saved, wouldn’t scrapping New Jersey’s restrictive gun laws be worth it?”
