With the hopolophobes ramping up to push for gun control measures which in no way would have prevented the tragedy they are trying to exploit*, we have yet another example of a common, everyday item being used to kill – in this case a frying pan.
From CBS Philadelphia:
It was Labor Day weekend when police in Woodlynne, Camden County were called to a convenience market on Mount Ephraim Avenue.
Jason Lewis, 35, was conscious, but bleeding from the head after he said he had been beaten by his girlfriend with a pair of frying pans, according to the Camden County Prosecutor.
The woman, 31-year-old Maleia Cole, fled to her home about a block away.
Lewis later underwent emergency surgery but succumbed to his injuries last week.
Cole is being charged with murder.
Editor’s note: stipulating that the bump-fire stock the perp used did in this extremely specific case possibly increased the death toll (he was shooting from a supported, elevated, position as opposed to offhand), banning bump-stocks will not prevent someone from making one. Unlike modifying a weapon’s internals to achieve automatic fire, which requires considerable machining skill for your average joe, a DIY bump-stock is cheap and simple to make.
