Just another day in 2nd amendment America

Welcome to America where guns are easier to get a hold of than the latest Star Wars toys.



Seattle Police Department investigators are piecing together the trail of a 35-year-old violent felon after he brandished two handguns at several downtown businesses Sunday, carjacked three vehicles and fired on officers before a fatal confrontation with police in Northeast Seattle.

Detectives from the departmentís Force Investigation Team and Investigations Bureau are reviewing the incident and have compiled a preliminary timeline of the manís crime spree.

Police received their first call about the suspect from staff at Storyville Coffee in the 90 block of Pike Street around 12:35 PM. The suspect reportedly entered the store, visibly sweating and acting nervously. He began manipulating a handgun in his pocket, leading employees to call 911.

The suspect exited the shop before police arrived and was next seen at the Turkish Delight restaurant in the 1900 block of Pike Place a few minutes later. There, he spoke briefly with employees before he brandished a handgun at the restaurantís owner and fled.

2. And you can bet is wasn't a typical hunting rifle.

What he used looked like it belonged in a war zone and not for deer hunting.

4. This guy wasn't legally permitted to own

 

A gun, so why are you using him as an example? He almost certainly obtained his weapons illegally.

7. Every gun starts out legal

One way or another, willingly or unwillingly, a law-abiding gun owner let those firearms enter the Black Market.

Illegal guns are very much part of the problem.

9. Most guns used in crime, handguns, are acquired

through straw purchases.

5. The middle section of the chase is about 2 blocks from my house.

My next door neighbor is in a car at the end - the final shootout was in front of my Library.

Pew Pew, America!

10. I was thinking the same thing

A police chase in gridlock traffic would be a lot slower.
