A man was charged by federal authorities Monday with providing the gun used to kill two Ohio policemen, as the officers' bodies were escorted in a procession to funeral homes in the suburban community they served.

Gerald Lawson, 30, of suburban Cleveland, is accused of buying the handgun for shooting suspect Quentin Smith last summer in the Cleveland area.

Ohio Police Officers Shot and Killed.

So...when will we see arrests of the providers of the hand guns in the LA school shooting and the Marshall County, KY school shooting? I'm gonna venture a guess. Never.

Were those guns obtained illegally?

ignoring glen can be a full time job.

The fact is a third party purchased the weapons and then sold them and those weapons were used to kill police officers. The most important to glen is the purchase was legal, not the murder of the police officers.

If those weapons were obtained legally, then comparing those sales to the sale of a weapon that was obtained illegally is a false comparison.

I don't blame you. It is so hard when confronting a person who doesn't agree with your opinion. As opposed to having a sounding board where every is on the same page. I am sure you would prefer a mutual admiration society aka circle jerk to the free speech zone we enjoy at this site.

I have to go to work soon but, I do want to hit this thread one more time.

Back when I was 19 I bought a 12 pack for an underage friend. I did not know it at the time but he stashed it away. The next weekend another mutual friend also bought him a 12 pack. The underage friend along with a couple of other underage guys got drunk and totaled their car. Luckily nobody was hurt and nobody narked. If they had today I would have a criminal record. One that would have prevented me from many different things I ve done in my life.

Now should the owner of that carryout been held accountable for selling me beer legally? Beer which I bought for an underage friend. More to the point had a person legally bought beer at that carryout and then totaled their car should the owner who sold them the beer be held accountable?

Of Course Not

But, somehow many on the left believe that when a person legally sells a firearm they somehow should be held accountable for the deeds the buyer does with that weapon. Which makes no sense whatsoever.

Absolutely! Quentin Smith was prohibited from having a weapon by law, Gerald Lawson provided him that weapon. His case will hinge upon whether he knew Quentin Smith was prohibited from having a weapon. The article says he did know. The prosecution will have to prove that.

This Lawson ought to thank his lucky star he wasn't charged with accessory to two counts of murder. What he was charged with is minor compared to that, a gift.

I don't know why you're talking about owner of that carryout store.

I bet just about everyone on the left believes that about providing a gun to a felon. I most certainly do, and I'm not one bit bashful about saying it either.

Buy a felon a gun knowing that the felon is a felon, knowing that what you're doing is against the law, and your ass ought to be grass. Prison time. :|

As far as I am concerned if he knowingly bought a weapon for a person he knew couldn't own one he should have the book thrown at him. We have 100's of gun laws on the books now. Maybe if we would enforce them gun crimes and violence would decrease. Without having to limit the rights of people like most of us who follow the law.

Agree 100% but, if I am not mistaken in the other cases cited by the OP those guns were attained legally.

I haven't looked those other cases up, nor did I consider them to be a part of the OP. I regarded that last sentence as an expression of Ike's opinion.

I don't know how or when those guns were acquired. When matters in a case like that as well as knowledge and intent.

I believe it's illegal in every state to walk around with a hand gun without a carry permit. I also believe you must be 21 in all 50 states to get a carry permit. So...a 15 year old and a 12 year old are no less prohibited from walking around in public with a handgun as Quentin Smith or any other felon.
