MI: Victim of attempted armed robbery shot and killed suspect, accomplice fled

Earlier this week, three people were sitting in their car at the intersection when they noticed a pair of individuals milling about, looking suspicious.

That's when the demands started.

"'Give me everything, so and so and so,'" described Wells. "'Give me this and give me that.'"

Then, the would-be robber pistol-whipped the driver above the shoulders.

"He had a weapon which was a BB gun, but it looked like a real weapon, so that's what startled both of 'em," said Wells.

That man, the suspect that police have designated a John Doe, was shot and killed by the man in the car, also the victim. The victim was licensed to carry.

Speaking at Ferris Coffee in Grand Rapids Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer commented on the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

In the back-to-back shootings, 31 people were killed and dozens more were injured. The massacres have reignited the gun debate that is often simmering in American politics.

"I reject the false narrative that’s been put out there that you can either support the second amendment or you can be for gun control," said Michigan's Democratic governor. "You can do both."

She also suggested having restrictions or even a ban on assault rifles, which doesn't limit the "second amendment hunter’s rights or the right to protect yourself."

MI: Guns in Michigan: Here’s what we know — and don’t

As the nation reels from the deaths of at least 34 people in three mass shootings within a week in Gilroy, California; El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, debates about guns are heating up.

The recent spate of shootings and others before them have the Second Amendment, gun laws and gun control, including the number of guns in the United States, coming under fire.

How many guns are in America and, specifically, in Michigan? Those are hard numbers to pin down.

“It’s a patchwork of data that is incomplete,” said Dave Chipman, a senior policy adviser with Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, who is originally from metro Detroit and spent 25 years as an ATF special agent.

Trump’s hate speech and actions have resulted in horrific casualties in recent days and weeks. Violent words have begotten violent acts. Time and again, domestic terrorists have been encouraged and set loose upon the land.

Grief, fear, and intimidation have followed, but so have outrage, determination, and indignation at the deliberate incitement of white supremacist hatred from the highest office in the land.

WA: Shootings: Guns are scapegoat for mental illness

Recently CNN quoted Peter Ambler of the Giffords organization as stating: “It’s not mental illness, it’s hate and guns.”

I’m not sure, but I don’t believe hating something so much that one chooses to kill is an example of sound mental health.

Gun control zealots want to vilify all firearms and the hundreds of millions of people who own them. The overwhelming majority of these owners are law-abiding citizens who would never consider harming others, except for self defense.

The executive vice president of the NRA at the time, Franklin Orth, testified about the bill to Congress, and in his testimony praised the mail order prohibition: “We do not think that any sane American, who calls himself an American, can object to placing into this bill the instrument which killed the president of the United States.” The NRA endorsed that gun control bill, which wasn’t out of step with the group’s established role as an authority on safe and responsible firearm practices; the NRA had helped draft gun control legislation in the past, including the 1934 National Firearms Act and the 1938 Federal Firearms Act.
