I know the anti-gun readership of Bearing Arms isn’t all that large, but I’ve got a question for the few brave souls who aren’t afraid to see what the other side is saying.
What gun control law would have prevented this?
According to an affidavit, a 14-year-old went to the area near the Edgehill basketball court to buy a gun from another juvenile, who was an acquaintance. When he arrived, two other people were also there: [Michael] Ferrell and a third juvenile.
The juvenile pointed a gun at the victim and demanded his money, according to Metro police. When the juvenile tried to grab the victim’s money, he reportedly knocked the gun away and they began physically struggling over the money.
Metro police said that’s when the victim was shot twice and his $600 was taken. Investigators learned Ferrell may have been the only person close enough to pick up the gun and shoot the victim, who was already struggling with the other juvenile over the money.
So, a 14-year in old in Nashville goes to buy a gun on the black market from another juvenile and a 19-year old, and ends up getting robbed and shot instead. Again, tell me the gun control law that would have prevented this?
If we had universal background checks, do you think the illegal gun sale would never have taken place? Or maybe the 14-year old would have been denied when the underage seller put him through a background check?
