Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 02, 2022

The University of West Georgia is grieving the death of an 18-year-old freshman and grappling with the notion that a former professor is charged in her death. Richard Sigman, 47, has been arrested and charged with murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime for his involvement in the death of Anna Jones, the Carrollton Police Department said. Jones was fatally shot in a parking garage early Saturday morning.

Sigman got into a verbal altercation with another man at an Italian restaurant in Carrollton, according to police. The other man told security that Sigman threatened to shoot him, police said. Security at the restaurant saw Sigman had a weapon and told him to leave. Sigman then left and walked to the parking deck.

"The investigation then indicates Sigman walked into the parking deck and began shooting into a parked vehicle striking the victim. Friends immediately drove her to the hospital where she was pronounced deceased," Carrollton police wrote on Facebook.

"This case is active and ongoing. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Carrollton Police Department." Carroll County Jail's online records listed Sigman as "currently booked" as of midday Sunday. No bond amount was listed. It was not clear whether Sigman had legal representation.

"Gov. Brian Kemp signed a bill allowing Georgia residents to carry handguns in public without a license or background check into law this year. The governor signed a second measure that gives concealed weapons permit holders from other states the ability to carry legally in Georgia as well. "

Just another example of more guns keep us more safe.

How tragic. Of course someone who calls himself "Nixon" wants to politicize it.

The man committed a random murder because he was pissed off at someone else.

We told you these things would happen. Yeah. Public mayhem hiding behind the 2nd Amendment is political.

If this were Tombstone, the Earp brothers would be taking up guns.

Imagine thinking the highest rate of gun violence in the modern world isn't a political construct.

JeffJ, you don't have to imagine.

The law pertaining to guns (and knives) in Tombstone when the Earps were on the scene would've freaked out today's firearms fetishists:

Jeffy is hear to tell us that the GQP making it easier to buy a gun than a bottle of bourbon is something that should not be political. No wonder you get dragged here on a daily basis.

Next up you can tell us how Obama caused this.

Gun control keeping a professor from being armed? Nope. Not with this Second Amendment. There's no circumstances where the Prof wouldn't be allowed to have a firearm. Profs regularly get death threats from students. They qualify as readily as actors and pro athletes even in the most stringent may issue states (not that those exist anymore).
