Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- NYPD officer killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley previously acquired guns by stealing them, according to a new report.
According to ABC 13 WHAM, Brinsley pleaded guilty to “theft, property damage, possession of a gun by a felon and discharging a gun near a public park” in Cobb County, Georgia in 2011.The gun he used in the crime was a .25 caliber semi-automatic which he stole before opening fire on a gold Chevy Malibu.
In that instance, no amount of gun control would have stopped Brinsley: He sidestepped every law to acquire his firearm unlawfully.
The same situation took place in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012, where Adam Lanza bypassed gun control laws by stealing his guns, then using them to carry out his murderous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary.
Days after Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) gun control bill was defeated in April 2013, he admitted that even it had passed it would not have prevented another Sandy Hook; Lanza had no intention of abiding by gun laws. He simply stole what he wanted and wreaked havoc on innocents.
The ATF is working to confirm whether Brinsley stole the gun he used December 20 2014 to execute two unsuspecting NYPD officers.
