The sheriff of the Oregon County where the recent gun-dependent mass murder at Umpqua Community College in Oregon recently called for not naming the murderer. From a guy who was a Sandy Hook truther–someone who has doubts about the murder of small school children in Newtown, CT–and who also opposes any gun control, this is especially stupid.
Why? Because if we don’t know the details of why a mass murder committed murder by gun, the only thing we can conclude is that the gun was the key element*. You can’t blame it on something else, such as mental illness, if all we know is that someone with a gun killed a lot of people.
Then again, internal consistency isn’t these fucking morons strong suit.
*Which it is.
