According to recently unearthed court records, Bob Dowlut—who for 30 years has been the architect of the National Rifle Association's legal and cultural agenda—was sentenced to life in an Indiana prison for shooting a shopkeeper during a robbery before murdering a single mother with the same gun.
Mr. Dowlut...I'm sorry, "Convicted Murderer...by gun" Mr. Dowlut, is however a very very white guy, so he didn't serve all that much of a sentence and got a job allowing guys...especially white guys...to carry all the guns and ammo they can carry, especially when they should not carry any of it.
Oh and it's not as if he has not long had an obsessive gun fetish...it's just he really really liked to put his fetish into action.
Dowlut was already well-known to police in his hometown of South Bend, Indiana, having escaped jail time after a juvie judge gave him a pass for robbing a local museum of several guns and using them to hold up a restaurant for $135. So when the mother of Dowlut's longtime girlfriend ended up shot twice in the heart and he was caught in a lie about his whereabouts that night, he explained how he'd come to kill her after trying to rob a store and shooting its proprietor in the stomach.
