'HAPPY DAYS' STAR POUNCES ON NAVY YARD SHOOTING TO PROMOTE GUN CONTROL
breitbart.com ^ | 09/16/2013 | CHRISTIAN TOTO

Posted on 09/16/2013 11:45:52 AM PDT by massmike

It's a sad celebrity ritual. Tragedy strikes somewhere in the U.S., and a star uses Twitter to politicize it for their pet cause.

Henry Winkler of Happy Days fame joined the club earlier today.

The actor rushed to Twitter today after news broke that a shooting at the U.S. Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. left several people dead. Many details are still unknown, but that didn't prevent Winkler from assuming gun control would have prevented the shooting.

If he had been around in 1902 he would have been calling for a ban on the 1894 Winchester because Harry Tracy used one to kill 11 police officers in his break from prison.

But how is this possible? D.C. already has strict gun control laws.

How do we prevent someone from violating existing gun control laws and shooting victims who are unarmed because of the same gun control law? Clearly we need to pass some more gun control laws!

This incident PROVES ONCE AGAIN that the police can not protect the average citizen - at work, at the shopping mall, in church or at school.

Your only defense is yourself and anything you have at hand.

Arm yourself and your loved ones if you truly care.

Hopefully, the NRA will offer free gun ownership and safety classes to all Navy Yard employees.

Henry Winkler was chosen to play Rush Limbaugh as the main figure of a TV sitcom created in 1994.

For some reason the show couldn’t tap into Rush’s 22 million listeners, I wonder why.

Carrying guns is not permitted on military installations except for military police. This wonderful idea is a lingering courtesy of Bubba Clinton.

Perfect opportunity for all the Hollywood Has Been’s to get their 15 seconds of camera time in hopes someone important sees them and remembers who they are.

Is Mr Ed available for comment? We need to hear some good old Horse Sense. The braying of the jackass liberals is annoying.

As a counterbalance: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/sep/12/james-woods-obama-hes-gift-hell/

It’s a safe bet there’s no love lost between Hollywood actor James Woods and President Obama — the former has taken to Twitter several times over the last few months to trash the policies and politics of the latter.

The latest came this week, in response to a report from British press that revealed the National Security Agency commonly provides Israel with intelligence data — without first stripping out private and personal information on American citizens. The Guardian in London reported the item, the latest in its coverage of document leaks from Edward Snowden.

Mr. Woods unleashed his views of the matter — and of Mr. Obama’s role in allowing the practice to occur — on Twitter.

He wrote: “Report: Data on Americans shared with Israel … Obama: the gift from hell that keeps on giving.”

This is hardly the first unfavorable rating Mr. Woods has posted on his Twitter account about Mr. Obama. In July, the actor ranted over Mr. Obama’s insertion of his personal opinion into the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin trial, characterizing it as fueling racial tensions and wondering why the president would speak his mind about the death of the 17-year-old Trayvon but not worry so much about American’s soldiers and wounded warriors.

Well, let’s see. I don’t suppose there are many US cities that have stricter gun control laws than D.C., so how would more gun control have prevented this? These stupid Hollyweirdoes are so annoying.
