Did the German Gunman Target Women?
I hope I'm wrong. I hope it was just random madness. But this sounds so horribly familiar.
Heribert Rech, interior minister of Baden-Wuerttemberg state, told a press conference this evening that the youth killed nine students and three teachers. Eight of the dead students were women, as were two of the teachers. Seven other women students are in hospital with serious injuries.
Mr Rech said that the gunman's father owned 15 firearms legally, of which 14 were under lock and key and one in the bedroom. That one was stolen, along with hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
Cue the crazy wingnuts: He didn't hate women he was just crazy. Guns don't kill people ....people kill people.
I've heard it all before.
When in fact guns do kill people.
Sexism and the war on women's rights can lead to murder.
And the sooner we can eliminate those curses.
The safer this world will be...
