A complete mystery
October 25, 2013 - Harry Eagar
So, somehow or other, a semi-automatic rifle disappeared from the home of rightwing kook Congressperson Renee ("I need my paycheck") Ellmers.
According to the Raleigh News & Observer:
"The weapon had been left leaning against a gun locker in an unlocked garage on Kingsway Drive, the report said."
The Ellmerses are, of course, responsible gun nuts. The Congresscritter's official spokesman said:
“ 'Gun safety is of the utmost importance in their household, which is exactly why she’s so upset and doesn't understand how this happened,' Doheny said."
I count three whoppers there in fewer than two dozen words.
The gun belonged to Ellmers' teenage son. RtO is going to speculate that he was not arrested and handcuffed because the clerk doubted he could afford to buy this useless item (retail price around $1,000), the way this other, not white teen did when he tried to buy a totally non-lethal belt (retail price $350), which was at least useful in holding up his pants.
Renee Ellmers was endorsed by the National Rifle Association.
