Skip to comments.CT Shooting- MNSBC playing up gun control minutes after shooting
Posted on 12/14/2012 11:13:06 AM PST by Red in Blue PA
Turned on MSNBC for awhile and Andrea Mitchell talked for some time about gun control. She even had someone from the Brady Campaign on very quick. So quick one must think that they are ready to take advantage of these types of shootings.
I cannot verbalize my contempt for that channel.
You’re pals with Bob Costas?
Charles Whitman killed his mother with a bayonet before he went to the Texas Tower.
Kip Kinkel murdered his parents, then shot up a school.
Ronald Gene Simmons strangled half his family and shot the rest.
Others like Patrick Purdy had no kin left when they shot up the Stockton school yard.
It is as if they are suicidal but just can't pull the trigger on themselves until they take what they consider to be vengeance on everyone else for being alive and perceived happy.
Other school massacres..
1755, the Pennsylvania School house massacre, the entire school killed.
1813 Massacre of the Ft Dearborne Children, an entire generation of children murdered by one man with a hand ax.
That’s the only way they can get ratings by attacking guns.
Too bad the schools don’t hire armed retired cops as security guards. Of course they have to be politicall correct, otherwise an armed teacher might have avoided sucha a catastrophe.
Anybody knwo if the PD was on the scene while the shooting was going on? How did the killer die?
The gun control mantra will be deafening due to this. And, I’m going to predict we will see some new federal (as well state) gun laws because of this. They will be ineffecctive feel-good laws based on emotions of the day.
I’ve given this a lot of serious thought and I just can’t think of any rational laws, new or in place, that could stop the mentally deranged from these acts.
I would like to know if these guns were stolen like the recent mall shooting out west.
I have a bad feeling this is going to be the event that motivates American voters to talk about serious gun control in this country. Now might be a really good time to make some purchases if you haven’t already.
WHAT EFFIN PRESCRIPTION DRUGZ WAS HE ON??
Local radio show in KC, where one of the hosts claims, “I support the 2nd Amendment, but...”
Get ready for yet another attack on our rights. This one’s gonna be a doozy!
You spoke too soon. obama just had a made a public statement and hinted about doing "something" about all the shootings that have been happening.
I stand by my previous prediction here on FR:
Having successfully implemented universal health care, something that no other progressive (read: communist) president had been able to accomplish, Obama is feeling invincible (and rightly so).
Next on his legacy wish list is gun control. He won't aim for any penny-ante assault weapons ban, either. He will aim much higher. Look for an all-out attack on the second amendment.
Each state has an enormous amount of power over the possession and use of firearms and other weapons; the 2nd Amendment left that power to the states.
A state can require that all weapons that the state classifies as suitable for military use, be stored in state armories that are typically scattered across a state, county by county.
It won’t surprise, to see some states now pass legislation requiring such storage.
One plus side of that, is that the armories become the honeypot for the Crown’s (currently the leftist dictatorship in waiting of Obama’s) ambitions; and as a honeypot, should the nationalizing forces of the left, move against the armories, then the people will know that the established threshold has been crossed.
As it was first in 1774 during the Powder Alarm.
So, you get to keep a “personal sidearm” and your hunting rifle and shotgun, but the rest of your “toys” are stored at the armory.
The NRA would probably campaign to have some part in that development.
This is just a possibility; but I have been expecting it for some time - I suspect it is more a probability now.
In addition to, some legislatures requiring a return to militia assembly and training, in order to re-establish what was once relatively common practice.
Gun control? How about public school control, instead. When was the last time we read about a mass school slaying in a private or home school setting, where they don’t herd children together and treat them as glorified apes?
Operation aghast and spurious.

So this is what the founding fathers had in mind? When will someone have the guts to stand up to the NRA. I wish someone would open fire at their next convention, in the name of the Second Amendment.
This comment has received 9 thumbs up and 3 thumbs down. Civility!
Just checked, and the comment’s been removed, but not before it got 9 thumbs up and only 3 thumbs down—probably not from self-described trolls but from many of the right-thinking people who’ve been spewing about “the NRA.”
Off the "grid."
