You may or may not have heard about the murder which happened this week at Wayne Community College in Goldsboro, NC. A former employee murdered his boss using a pistol gripped shotgun and then fled on a motorcycle and hitchhiked to Florida. Some reports claim the man was a white supremacist and killed his former boss because he was gay. Others say he was let go for habitual absence from the job and killed him because he had been fired. The truth in this case is we may never know. Apparently the murderer claimed to have killed others so at the very least he needs to be locked away forever. Watch his antics when he appears in court.
I will say the media did not jump on an assault rifle bandwagon. They did report it as a long gun and some as a long rifle. The firearm used in the murder was a shotgun.
