Remember that loaded gun that a Target loss prevention officer found in the toy aisle? Moms Demand Action went to work right away spreading rumors about open carriers being careless and leaving the gun there for any child to pick up.
This was a part of their scare tactic to get Target to ban all guns from their stores instead of choosing to comply with local laws regarding firearms. And it was all too coincidental for a loaded gun to be accidentally left in the toy aisle all while anti-gun groups were trying to create such a backlash themselves.
Now we have learned that the man who left the gun at Target has been identified, and he’s not even legally allowed to own a gun in the first place.
The Myrtle Beach Police have revealed that David Dennis was the one who left the 9mm Hi-Point handgun and 8 rounds of ammo in the Marvel Superhero Playskool toy box.
Dennis is being sought for unlawfully carrying a handgun in this incident, and since he is already a convicted felon he is not legally allowed to have the gun in the first place. Looks like gun control laws are doing a great job of keeping guns out of the hands of the criminals, right?
According to State Law Enforcement Division records, Dennis was previously charged with armed robbery in October 2013. The robbery charge was dismissed in March, but he pleaded guilty to assault and battery, second degree, according to the Horry County Public Index.
He was sentenced to four months in prison, but received credit for time served, the index states.
So what will the anti-gun group’s ourcry be in this case? Since criminals are breaking the laws we already have let’s create new laws for them to break while limiting the rights and protections of law abiding citizens?
One has to wonder at the motive of Dennis here. Why on earth would a convicted felon who is not legally allowed to own a gun go into Target and provide ammunition for anti-gun groups like Moms Demand Action and Everytown? You have to wonder if even convicted felons realize that less gun rights for the law abiding means more freedom for crooks. After all, even criminals have enough sense to not want someone to be shooting back at them when they want to rob a store.
