I was on a plane for most of Friday. I heard about the CT school shooting while talking to some fellow travelers in Chicago’s Midway Airport. Out of respect for the victims I wanted to give it a few days before I broached any political topics in regards to the shooting at Newtown Elementary School in CT.
Of course, like a pack of rabid dogs the gun control zealots descended upon the tragedy and while traipsing over the still warm bodies of children, called for the utter elimination of the 2nd Amendment.
They do not highlight that the shooter was a sociopath.
They do not highlight that he stole the guns.
They do not highlight that CT has strict gun regulations and an assault weapons ban.
No, the demonize his tool for his actions. In truth, to hear some of them talk, it was the guns fault that he committed this heinous act. THEY ARE MAKING EXCUSES FOR HIM.
My fury and contempt for these sniveling gun grabbing cowards has been stoked. How dare they, these pathetic examples of Americans, try to mitigate the fault laid at Adam Lanza’s feet?
I do not want this to become an angry rant, but I cannot help recall in Shakespeare’s Henry V, when the unarmed boys of the baggage were killed by the French in cowardly knavery, Henry responds:
I was not angry since I came to France, Until this instant.
And I was not angry at the gun grabbers until now. They were always craven and cowardly in my eyes, but I felt that a response to ignorance and naivete. But now? How dare they? They would blame an inanimate object and by thus try to lessen the guilt of the murderer.
And not only lessening his guilt but by trying to rake the killers mother, his first victim, over the coals by painting her as an extremist and kook. They want the public to feel sorry for Adam Lanza ‘the killer of children’, because if they do, then they can look for scapegoats. And the Schumbers, Bloombergs and Feinsteins of the world are chomping at the bit to name that scapegoat…firearms and those who have them.
Before the little bodies of the children were cold, these “Champions of Gun Control” were on the air, paying lip service to the victims while reveling in the opportunity to “tip the scales” in favor of banning guns.
With Schumer giddy about the idea of tipping the scales, Feinstein wasted no time in promising that she will introduce an assault weapons ban immediately upon the beginning of the next congress.
Bloomberg, the ghoul of gun control, who has never let a tragedy go by that he doesn’t insinuate himself into, has gone so far as saying he has a gun control wish list that Obama should adhere to and then absurdly claims that these types of tragedies only happen in America. Apparently, we annexed Norway when I wasn’t looking.
Of course, these slimy opportunists are trying to give America the Kansas City Shuffle because their real agenda is not, “common sense” gun laws, because Connecticut had these “common sense” gun laws AND an assault weapons ban.
The school was a gun free zone and there is a waiting period to purchase firearms.
Adam Lanza, was 20 years old and he stole the firearms he used. Any gun control measure short of an absolute ban would not have stopped this tragedy and even then, since Prohibition and the War on Drugs worked so well, why do people believe a ban on guns would be any better?
But that is what these rabid zealots want. They lull in people with buzz words like “common sense” and stoke the fire of fear with straw men terms like “assault weapon” but the fact of the matter is, they are ghouls who will use the dead in order to advance their agenda. An agenda that has utterly failed 20 children in Connecticut
Blood runs in the streets because gun free zones deny the right to the lawful…the criminals and the insane care not.
I agree that there should be a discussion. The discussion should be about how to eliminate gun free zones so tragedies like this can be mitigated.
The only politician I have heard that has the character and courage to face the blistering attacks by the zealots and their complicit media allies is Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert who said that an armed Principal could have made all the difference.
“I wish to God (the principal) had had an M4 in her office, locked up, so when she heard gunfire she pulls it out … and takes him out, takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids,”
How many more innocent lives must be sacrificed for the illusion of a “Gun Free Zone”? Tell me again how criminals and lunatics follow the rules.
And the gun banners like Schumer, Feinstein and Bloomberg make suggestions that would not have prevented this tragedy. Rep. Gohmert is the only person I have heard of that is suggesting something that might help.
Once again, CT has an assault weapons ban. So Feinstein trying to renew an AWB is her own pet project that she is disingenuously trying to launch of the backs of 20 innocent souls. Her selfishness is sickening.
As I have said, I am angry. Angry at the lunatic who murdered these innocent children and their teachers and if possible, angrier still at those cowardly bastards who would excuse his behavior in order to advance their own agenda.
The tragedy at Newtown can be laid directly at the feet of Gun Control. And if the gun control zealots have their way…blood will run in the gun free streets.
