Back in January of this year, the Associated Press reported that, “a Salvadoran immigrant, Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman,” was charged in Nevada with four counts of murder. The murders were committed during robberies in an attempt to get money to buy methamphetamine.
The murders happened over a period of 5 days, between January 10 and 15. Three of the four victims were elderly – 74-year-old Sophia Renken, 81-year-old Gerald David, and his 80-year-old wife, Sharon David, as well as 56 old Connie Koontz.
But Guzman wasn’t just an “immigrant,” as the left likes to classify everyone. He’s an ILLEGAL immigrant, who has been in the U.S. for a year or so. He has family that lives in Carson City. Their status was unreported.
Guzman, who at first lied and claimed his innocence, finally broke down during a three hour interrogation, that he did in fact kill the four.
Washoe County Sheriff’s Detective Stefanie Brady said that he admitted to shooting all four – that, “he shot the victims ‘because of the drugs.’” And the murders were committed with a gun Guzman stole from the David residence.
The murders happened in January, 2019 and the trial is set for April, 2020. There’s some swift justice for a confessed killer, illegal alien. The citizens of Nevada must feel a sense of satisfaction at having the opportunity to pay for the care and feeding of this murdering illegal a-hole while he awaits trial.
So why bring this up now?
Well, because of all the hysteria over mass-shootings and the rush to heap more unconstitutional and worthless gun control legislation on us law-abiding citizens. No enhanced background checks would have prevented these senseless murders. No current or proposed gun legislation would have prevented this. Nothing the democrats or squishy Republicans are proposing will bring these four back or prevent the next incident like it.
The only laws that could have prevented this tragedy are already on the books and have been there for decades. No, they’re not gun laws – they’re laws that prevent illegal aliens from entering our country in the first place.
Yes, we actually have laws, dozens or more, passed decades ago, that state the obvious – if you attempt to enter the U.S. illegally and are caught, you shall be deported. It’s not rocket science – our government just chooses to ignore its own laws.
It’s why we conservatives insist that just passing more laws is an exercise in futility, and will only further hamper the law-abiding.
But that’s just part of the story. The other half is the many claims thrown out by the left of the amount of “mass-shootings” in a given year.
According to the lefty anti-gun website, Gun Violence Archive, as of September 1, 2019, there have been 283 mass shootings in America. That averages more than one a day.
The conventional definition of a mass-shooting is four or more victims shot in a single incident. Not necessarily killed, just shot. Of course, as I’ve stated before, this is not what we think of when we hear of a mass-shooting. We think of Las Vegas, or Texas, Alabama, or Ohio.
We don’t think of a drug deal gone bad in parking lot at 3 AM in some inner city, where four or more gang members are shot, or 50 some-ought people shot over a weekend in Chicago. And we certainly don’t think of an illegal alien scum-bug murdering four people in as many days in Nevada.
In fact, this killing spree perpetrated by the illegal, Guzman, won’t even be included in the mass-shooting “Archives” of the leftist site. It should but it won’t, because it wasn’t a single incident event.
Yet is this any less tragic that it happen over days instead of all at once? Ask the families of the American victims, who know, unlike other shootings, these senseless murders were completely preventable.
So again – thank you democrats and spineless Republicans. The American citizen continues to pay the ultimate price for your political grandstanding.
