Looking at this list, every event since Columbine was in a gun-free or gun restricted zone. Not sure what was in Binghamton NY, but the rest were schools, movie theaters, and military bases where guns have been eliminated or restricted.

I try to avoid conspiracy theories, but I do find it strikingly odd that we’ve had a huge upswing in deadly shootings not long after after gun-grabbing radical entered the Oval Office...

It was a class, but wasn't a “real” school...

“event since Columbine was in a gun-free or gun restricted zone”

Almost all of them are in gun free zones.U TX, some post office, both gun free. San Ysidro is in Cali, lets admit that’s a gun free zone. Also wasn’t there some woman who sued after Kileen, TX because she had a permit but couldn’t carry in a restaurant?

I’ll go full tin foil hat on this. Was Alexis part of a black budget program? Was he programmed like a bomb to do this? It might seem ridiculous to ask these questions, but with Dear Leader I don’t put aside anything.

Suzanna Gratia Hupp, DC, (born September 28, 1959)[1] is a former Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives, who represented traditionally Democratic[citation needed] District 54 (Bell, Burnet, and Lampasas counties) for ten years from 1997-2007. After surviving the Luby’s massacre in 1991, Hupp became a leading advocate of an individual’s right to carry a concealed weapon. She was elected to her first term in 1996, but did not seek a sixth two-year term in 2006. She has also written a book called From Luby’s to the Legislature: One Woman’s Fight Against Gun Control, published by Privateer Publications, San Antonio, Texas.[2][3]

That’s because Obama has stoked tensions to the max here. The latest insane killer was obviously responding to Obama’s racial rhetoric, and the other insane killers (well, those who weren’t responding to Islam) were clearly stirred up and made uneasy by the atmosphere he has created.

The mentally ill are very easily influenced by things around them that most of us might shrug off as mere politics, and I think that’s what we’re seeing here.

Curious at why the number 12, other than that’s where they stopped. What if it had been the 20 worst shootings, how many people would be involved and how recently?

The end will always justify the means for a true radical like Obama. The best way to implement radical change is not by arguing logically against the existing policy, but instead by finding ways to drastically change public perception so that the existing policy is considered morally reprehensible. Wonder of all wonders, ever since Obama took office we’ve had all sorts of little events (events that were rare in the past, one might add) which suddenly seem to call for the solution that Obama has wanted all along.

It seems fishy and I wouldn’t put anything past a textbook sociopath like Obama. Again, I’m not usually given to conspiracy theories. Still, at this point nothing would surprise me.

I blame the media for over doing the coverage. I have read old coverage of murders, and they would mock and put down the killers of old. Now, they get glowing puff pieces in the media and become celebrities.

And every shooter had “mental” problems almost as bad as John McCain. Were they all “controlled”? Isn’t it sad that you can come up with all kinds of crazy theories and less and less people will call you a nut? In this day and age anything is believable.

I look at the conspiracy theories that sprang up as a result of Sandy Hook. Ov the wall nutz! Alex Jones and other were coming up with stuff that made you think they were off their meds for sure.

But you know what? Them idiot ideas weren’t any goofier than the “truth” the media and gubmint officials were churning out. Until - a day later they churned out new and different versions of the “truth”.

And in the end - we still don’t know (will never know) the full details. And so when the conspiracy theorists are out there - I give them as much (dis)credibility as our MSM.

Interesting as well that 2007 is when the Progressives took over the House, and the Senate, as well every one of the criminal perps of these listed activities were followers of those Leftist perspectives.

Interesting to me that every Blue State has serious criminal problems, demand gun control, or have gun control, and Red States that enforce law do not.

Zot!

I enjoyed that.

But seriously, think about this, if every gun in the U.S. were confiscated and destroyed, the next day there would be a mass murder committed by a knife, gasoline, C4, ANFO, Semtex, VX, or wait for it,...the Oldsmobile.

I wish the old King Hussein of Jordan was still alive, but alas, he is a "Silent Key" now. B-( If he was, I'd trade our "King Hussein" for their King Hussein. FYI, the former King of Jordan was an amateur radio operator, callsign JY1. When an amateur radio operator passes on, he is termed a "Silent Key."

Me too. I was talking with a fellow online friend, and Freeper, where there are times I wonder about thing like that. I hate to get "Alex Jones" (I know posting from him is forbidden here) on here, but I brought up the point of things like MK-ULTRA from 1947 to 1971 where they tried mind control experiments along with movies like the 1977 classic, "Telefon."

The perp did mention about microwaves beaming into his mind and there was talk of experiments similar in nature, albeit conjecture, where the Soviets and perhaps even us did that back in the 1950's or 1960's and perhaps past that.

Well, my friend applied Occam's Razor although he does acknowledge such secret programs. He mentioned that because of the bad economy and climate in this country, a lot of people are becoming more mentally unstable as the pressure gets to them and some of that group tends to commit suicide, so maybe this was a way to "commit suicide by cop."

I know Alex Jones is a bit taboo, but my take on him is that there are times he goes overboard but most of time, there are some small to medium elements of truth there.

Whether is is thing like MK-ULTRA, tanking the economy to generate more discontent or even if it is a case of "stuff happens" where it is just a convenient opportunity, I would not put anything above Obummer and Co. to use it for their causes.
