This man supplied some of the weaponry used in two major college mass murders. He is eager to continue supplying these weapons in the hopes that someday a good guy will shoot a bad guy. Eric Thompson, owner of Topglock.com, is the goto guy if you need guns, especially the widely loved Glock handgun. The gentleman who killed a half-dozen people at NIU got some of his supplies at Topglock. The guy who killed all those kids at Virginia Tech last year also got some of his armaments at Topglock.com. Topglock: Your specialist in tragedy.
We’re having a motto contest for Topglock.com. Here’s my entry:
“Online Gun Suppliers don’t kill innocent college students ….. Crazy guys kill innocent college students. The Online Gun Suppliers just supply them with the tools they need”
Do you have a better motto? Maybe a jingle or a limerick?
TGSCOM Inc is the name of the company owned by Thompson. TGSCOM owns about 100 different web sites, all selling guns with different advertising angles.
Thompson, of course, is cooperating with police. There have been a number of instances where Thompson has helped the police to trace down the source of a weapon, or to verify documentation on a weapon used in some crime or another. He has helped put criminals behind bars in so doing, according to his web site. It is probably fairly routine for him to have to supply documentation after the fact in murders, mass slaying, and so on.
He claims, on his site (no, you won’t find a link here, go find it yourself), that he wants some day to learn that one of his guns was used to stop a tragic crime like the mass murders at Virginia Tech or NIU.
Did you catch this? If you’re only paying half attention to this, please stop now and re-read all of the above and see what conclusion you can draw from it.
Eric Thompson has 100 or so web sites selling guns. He happens to have sold supplies to the killers in these two major school shootings. ( … two empty 9 mm Glock magazines and a Glock holster to Steven Kazmierczak, and a Walther .22-caliber handgun to Seung-Hui Cho, who killed 32 people in April.) It must be true that this guy is providing guns, ammo, etc. to thousands and thousands, and thousands of people, right?
And at this time, when the press goes to interview him, he does NOT have a list of honorable and noble uses to which his guns have been put. He does not have a list of cases where a mass murderer was about to start his slaying, and an owner of a TGSCOM-provided Glock whipped out his or her firearm and stopped the slaying.
He does have a litany of cases where he cooperated with the police in helping them run down a criminal who used a gun purchased from TGSCOM. This involves supplying paperwork required by law. Paperwork that if the NRA had its way, would not be required by law.
Eric does not have any evidence that the widespread distribution of firearms has any effect other than spreading tragedy and mayhem.
Eric Thompson should be stopped, don’t you think?
