David Codrea Exclusive: Facts of Shipley case lead to some conclusions, much speculation
"While such questions are necessary and understandable, much of the speculation is unlikely to be answered without further investigation by those with the resources, and most importantly, the inclination to do so. Unless and until that happens, to include pressure to investigate by some of the political figures the family has approached, this story will be relegated to a niche readership. John Shipley’s story will remain unknown, and gun collectors and hobbyists, including those in law enforcement, will continue to remain at risk due to arbitrary interpretations of the law, self-serving prosecutions, and a “watchdog press” that all too often seems content to nap at government’s feet and reserve its snarling for those who get too close."
