As my nightshift was coming to an end two mornings ago, every TV station suddenly began carrying the breaking news of the on-air shooting of reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward of WDBJ7-TV.
Both victims were engaged to be married.
However, before the suspect was identified, the gun control crowd went on the offensive.
As it turned out, the suspect was ex-reporter Vester Lee Flanagan II (aka Bryce Williams), who after killing his victims, faxing a manifesto to ABC, did us all a favor and off'd himself.
The unlamented Vester wasn't the angry, white, hetero, Republican, card-carrying NRA member the many in the news and social media may have assumed he was.
If that was indeed their assumptions, they got the "angry" part right. Vester was gay black man, and Obama supporting Democrat.
Vester wanted to start a race war.
But in these turbulent, PC-afflicted times, you can't state the obvious.
Breitbart News became the epicenter of an online firestorm for its headline.
Comrade Karla, who brought the Breitbart story to our attention had this to say:
...I predict this will die a quick death in the media as it doesn’t fit pre-conceived “narratives.” The PC crowd is already attacking the messenger.
I think the good comrade is correct, for the most part. The gun control issue will be reinvigorated now that Hillary has vowed to take on gun violence in America.
And despite Vester's declaration of race war, leftists are downplaying this and considering this a "gun problem."

Whether or not the On Air Shooting story gets buried, two innocent people were murdered and four families are in mourning.
My thoughts and condolences go out to them.
