Guns can be more sacred than human life to gun fanatics and John Henry Spooner of Milwaukee is a case in point. Last year, he shot his 13-year-old neighbor Darius Simmons twice– “to make sure he was dead”–because Spooner believed the youth had stolen four of his shotguns. During his trial, Spooner said he did not feel “that bad” about the murder, calling it “justice.” Asked why he shot Darius, Spooner said, “I wanted my guns back…I just wanted them back so bad.” Spooner's love of weapons that kill so much he would kill for them is this week's Best Argument for Gun Regulation.
