By now, most people have heard of the story involving Meleanie Hain being killed by her husband in a murder suicide. The stories comming out of the Huffington Post, and and Brady Bunch only prove what type of ilk anti-gun rights activists are.

Points that have been asserted by these scum bags and their supporters:
  • She was made less safe by her owning a gun
  • Her gun contributed to her death
  • She liked to intimidate children with her gun
  • There is no possibility that a person would need to be able to defend themselves at a soccer game or while shopping
  • She deserved what she got
If each of these assertions were true, it would still be in poor taste to say such things about the dead. But each of these assertions are blatantly false. So what would motivate groups and their supporters to not only smear the dead, but to knowingly and deliberately lie and deceive while doing it? It is to this depth that the anti-gun lobby will sink to push their agenda. A number of liberal rags immediately posted smears agianst her. The most blatent of these was the Huffington Post which insinuated that she somehow contributed to her own death by owning a gun and approved a comment saying that she deserved what she got (that comment was eventually taken down - I flagged once every 10 minutes for a few hours). Notibly, I posted a comment that (not to my surprise) was never posted despite their site policy not to politically censor comments. My comments was:

From what I've read so far there are a few points that absolutely need to be thrown in the face of anti-gunners that attempt to capitalize on this.

1 - She was murdered. She is not some political pawn. RIP
2 - She was not shot with her own gun. Her gun in no way contributed to her death.
3 - Her husband (the murderous scumbag who got off far too easy for what he did) was a police officer - one of the only ones who can do no wrong. One of the ones the brady campaign for insanity thinks should have firearms while the rest of us (including her) should not.
4 - She mentioned in an interview on Gun Nut Talk that she does not carry at home. Something to consider if you live with a mentally unstable police officer who you are in the process of leaving.

Anti gunners who try to spin this as an example of a gun making you less safe need to have these points thrown in their faces.

Her tragic death cannot be allowed to be twisted into anti gun or even anti OC fodder.
I'm not surprised that it was censored. They have a tendency to only approve the few comments that agree with these scum bags, and a few opposing comments as long as the comment doesn't have any real consistency.
