  • ​​​​​​​Republican Councilwoman killed in possible targeted attack

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/new-jersey...ry?id=96844342

    A New Jersey councilwoman was shot and killed in a possible attack outside her home, an incident officials are calling "shocking" and "senseless."

    Eunice Dwumfour was the first sitting elected official in recent memory who had been shot and killed in office in the state, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy told reporters Thursday.

    "I am stunned by the news of Sayreville Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour's murder last evening in an act of gun violence," Murphy said. "Her career of public service was just beginning, and by all accounts she had already built a reputation as a committed member of the Borough Council who took her responsibility with the utmost diligence and seriousness."

    Dwumfour was inside her white SUV when she was shot Wednesday night, officials said. She sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

    I could tell Murphy is a Democrat by the first sentence out of his mouth: "I am stunned by the news of Sayreville Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour's murder last evening in an act of gun violence." (emphasis mine). Who else but a Democrat would wedge that into his/her statement.

      Never let a crisis go to waste.

            NZ gun laws are less strict than in the US.

              Ay yi yi. People are getting gunned down every day. Mass shootings every other day or at least once a week. He'd BETTER say something about it, because we need to DO something about it.
              My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism. James 2:1

              If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not  bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless James 1:26

              This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; James 1:19

                  I don't think ANY of us what to have guns everywhere --- that's about the nuttiest comment you could make on guns.
                  The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                      The article says this was a hit job. You don't think hitmen can get guns - regardless of their illegality? And even if (IF) a hitman couldn't get a gun, he would likely have mowed her down with his vehicle.

                        They don't care about those facts.

                          Every time Democrats rush in to "do something", gun sales go through the roof. You'd think they'd learn.

                          (But I hope they don't)

                              Do you even know what "live by the sword" actually means? I'll give you a hint: It doesn't mean simply recognizing a person's right to arm themselves for self-defense, which is something that even Jesus himself advocated.
