Sol Pais, a woman suspected of making threats towards schools in the Denver metro area which included Columbine High School, has been found dead according to official reports.
CBS Denver reports that investigators “closed in on the teen Wednesday near the Echo Lake Lodge at the base of Mount Evans in Clear Creek County.”
In a press conference, these officials state that Pais was found dead due to an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
This alleged threat caused school districts along Colorado’s Front Range to cancel classes for more than half a million students.
Pais’s threat came days before the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre.
The woman was apparently “infatuated” with the Columbine massacre, which left 13 people dead in 1999.
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI, Pais made her way to Colorado from Miami on Monday night and purchased a pump-action shotgun. At the time, she was considered armed and extremely dangerous.
The FBI Denver tweeted Wednesday that there was no longer a threat to the community.
This incident came shortly after Colorado’s passage of a red flag gun confiscation law on April 12, 2019.
Since the Aurora shooting of 2012, Colorado went from being one of America’s most pro-gun states to one of the most anti-gun states in the nation according Guns & Ammo magazine.
In the wake of the 2018 Parkland shooting, Colorado has joined many other blue states in passing gun control.
With a Democratic trifecta in the Colorado General Assembly, gun control looks to be a fixture in Colorado politics.
This incident will likely be politicized by gun control advocates in the state as a means for pushing more gun control.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
