Chapter 14:

If Grasshoppers Carried Guns, Birds Would Quit Trying to Eat Them


Roy: Earlier, you said, quote, “The dozens of psychopaths who went on rampage shooting sprees across America are directly responsible for 500,000 trained and alert citizens carrying a deadly response mechanism.”

You’ve mentioned these boogey-men a number of times. Can you name some of them for me?

Tim: 1984: James Oliver Huberty kills 21 people at a McDonald’s in San Diego.

1990: James Edward Pough kills nine people in a GMAC loan office in Jacksonville.

1991: George Pierre Hennard kills 23 people at Luby’s Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas.

1993: Gian Luigi Ferri kills eight people on the streets of San Francisco.

2002: John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo kill 10 people in Washington, DC.

2007: Robert Arthur Hawkins kills eight people in the Von Maur Department Store in Omaha.

2008: Nicholas Troy Sheley kills eight people total in Missouri and Illinois over a seven-day period of time.

2009: Robert Stewart kills eight people in a nursing home in Carthage, North Carolina.

2009: Jiverly Antares Wong kills 13 people at the American Civic Association in Binghamton, New York.

2009: Michael Kenneth McLendon kills 10 people in three rural communities: Kinston, Samson and Geneva, Alabama.

2011: Scott Evans Dekraai kills eight people at the Salon Meritage in Seal Beach, California.

2012: James Eagan Holmes kills 12 people in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.

2017: Devin Patrick Kelley kills 26 people at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

2017: Stephen Craig Paddock kills 61 concert-goers at a music festival in Las Vegas.

2017: Cleophus Emmanuel Cooksey Jr. kills nine people in Phoenix over a 21-day span.

2018: Ian David Long kills 13 people at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California.

2019: Connor Stephen Betts nine people on the sidewalk in Dayton, Ohio.

And that’s just the psychopaths who have killed eight or more people in recent years. If we began naming all the ones who have killed seven or less, we’d be here for hours.

Roy: You make it sound like we all need a bodyguard.

Tim: You either need a bodyguard, or you are one.

Roy: That’s an interesting perspective.
