Yesterday, a New York man who served 17 years in prison for killing his grandmother reportedly set a house and car on fire and then shot at emergency personnel who showed up, killing two firefighters.

Gun control advocates immediately took to Twitter to express their outrage.

They weren’t outraged at the monster who carried out the shootings. No, they were outraged at the NRA.

The man who carried out the shootings, William Spengler, was a convicted felon. As such, he was not allowed to own guns legally.

William Spengler clearly was not someone who abides by the law. Would the proposals supported by gun control advocates have prevented him from obtaining his murder weapon? Color us skeptical.
