We don’t know much about the man who shot two people at a dollar store on the mean streets of Burnsville yesterday.
And by “we”, I mean everyone but Erin Maye Quade, who promptly tweeted that the shooting proved the need for background checks.
Before any details were known.
Not only before the investigation had started, much less turned up any information, but before an arrest had been made.
She wants to represent you in the Minnesota House.
If you live in HD57A, please bring some friends to the poll and vote for Ali Jimenez-Hopper.
UPDATE: Early, unofficial report: the shooter is a registered sex offender who is legally barred from having guns.
Yep. That background check sure woulda done the trick.
