Gun Control Advocacy As Projection

I have long thought it odd that gun control advocates assume that nearly everyone is one stormy argument away from murder or suicide.  Over the years, I have seen other stories like this.  11/2/19 Washington Examiner:
A mother in Texas was found dead alongside her three children on Friday in an apparent triple murder-suicide.
Ashley Auzenne, 39, was known to have been battling depression and anxiety in addition to physical ailments such as arthritis and lupus at the time of her death, which was ruled as a suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Her three children, Parrish, 11, Eleanor, 9, and Lincoln, 7, were also killed by gunshots and their mother is the only suspect. She had just finalized a contentious divorce from their father, Murvin Auzenne Jr.
Auzenne was a vocal advocate for stricter gun control in the United States with multiple social media postings calling for an end to gun violence and Facebook profile pictures that bore the hashtags #Enough and #EndGunViolence.

  1. Then there's my second thought wrt a guy who stopped a robbery at a 7-11:

    2. The guy had just come from a heated argument where he had a gun, and nothing happened as far as the gun was concerned. Which cuts against all the usual anti-gunner stereotypes. ("Consider the inconceivable incident of the gun at the domestic disturbance." "But the gun did nothing at the domestic disturbance!" "That, of course, is the inconceivable incident.")
