Blood on hands of Obama, Mitt and NRA! (Gun grabbers want action)
NY Daily News ^ | 07/21/2012 | Editorial Board

Posted on 07/21/2012 5:52:47 PM PDT by nhwingut

The police chief in Aurora, Colo., said he is confident that massacre gunman James Holmes acted alone. The police chief was dead wrong.

Standing at Holmes’ side as he unleashed an AR-15 assault rifle and a shotgun and a handgun was Wayne LaPierre, political enforcer of the National Rifle Association.

Standing at Holmes’ side as he sprayed bullets and buckshot into a crowded movie theater were Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, a President and a would-be President, who have bowed to the NRA’s dictates and who responded to the slaughter Friday with revolting, useless treacle.

I’ve got just one thing to say to those stupid Flukers at the “editorial board” of the New Yawk Daily News. You can’t blame the NRA without also blaiming the people who wrote the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights! So shut the Fluke up and don’t you ever dare wave the First Amendment in my face again! The same people who gave you your Fluken First Amendment rights also gave us the Second Amendment rights. Get off the drugs and stop acting like a bunch of retards. I know you must have at least a little education, use your heads, MORONS!

Romney is a life-long hunter and just purchased a life-time NRA membership a few years ago at the same time he flip-flopped on guns, abortion, gays, etc, and disavowed all responsibility for any and all the liberal/progressive things that happened to Massachusetts on his watch. None of it was his fault.

Aurora’s Strict Gun Laws Didn’t Prevent Shooting, But If One Law-Abiding Person In The Theater Had Been Carrying One...

So who profits from such movies and midnight showings? Who has spent millions promoting the Batman culture, cult and ideology? Who has created the dark creature and the violent portrayals? And which newspapers have accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising fees to promote such?

Moreover, since guns don’t jump up and grab hold of trigger happy perps to cause mayhem, perhaps the answer to the article’s question lies in the simple phrase: cui bono? Who benefits? Who anticipates the profits, who receives the advertising dollars and who benefits from creating a culture of violence hungry movie goers?

PRECISELY! I made a comment to someone shortly after the news broke, and the anti-gun crowd started making noise that we should be making it clear that the problem in that theater is NOT that there were too MANY guns, but TOO FEW in the hands of law abiding patrons. It's illegal to carry concealed in places like theaters.

I ALSO want those that advocate gun control to tell me how well making marijuana illegal stopped its possession and use!

The Bill of Rights of which the Second Amendment is one, are not for the public servants to just take away. They are a compact between the people and the government. If the government breaks that compact, the people are no longer bound to be loyal to that government.

The guy had a pretty clear idea of how to attack a large number of stationary targets ~ and was prepared to kill hundreds.

He killed just 20% of those he targeted, and most of the crowd escaped.

That tells me everything I need to know about this Registered Democrat Environmental Whacko ~ they, too, believe people are stupid enough to just stand there and drown if/when the ocean rises!

Then there was the door. It's one that's supposed to be easily opened from the inside ~ that's to keep folks from sneaking into the theatre.

At the same time it was easily jimmied! The attacker knew that but apparently the theatre management didn't, or they didn't care.

Looking around for some deep pockets it's just a matter of time until the lawyers figure out where payday is coming from.

The theatre chain also prohibits concealed weapons on the premises.

As usual, a weapons free zone is a free fire zone for a motivated killer. Further advocacy of such nonsense is just the sort of thing that gets people killed. Frankly, if I were the lawyer for one of the victims I'd try to find a LINK between the managers and owners of that theatre chain AND the managers and owners of the New York Daily News.

All it takes is finding an 'active' interest by Zuckerman in Cinemark holdings ~ more or less.

By denying citizens the right to self defense the
theater is guarranteeing their safety. I expect
to see some pretty hefty law suits come out of this.
It’s like going to city hall, there should be gun check
in the entrance. Why should I have to be defenseless
between my vehicle and the building.

“...and England...”

YES! England has very tight gun control...throughout the United Kingdom, which includes Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Shotguns are allowed ‘for hunting’.

I lived in Northern Ireland for three years, ‘78 - ‘81...a time of the ‘troubles’ in Northern Ireland. Of course the IRA had guns, rifles, automatic weapons, rockets, elaborate bomb detonating devices etc. The people were generally disarmed, except for some shotguns.

One evening, after a bit of a pub crawl, I gave a lift home to a fellow I knew, and he proceeded to show me his Rigby, and over/under shotgun. We proceeded to take it out into his back ‘garden’ and shoot at cans (food still in them). Great sport, after midnight, of course...and no police showed up to put a stop to our ‘fun’. A day or so later he got a ‘visit’ and he was made to understand that he should not pull that kind of a stunt again. The point of this is that even with their strict controls, the ‘bad guys’ had guns, and they could be reasonable when the ‘good guys’ pushed the envelope.

Part of the answer may lie within the theme of the movie itself. This attack was patterned on the kind of assault that the antagonist, ‘Bane’, would direct at the ‘moneyed class’ in fictional Gotham City. Somehow, the theater goers are supposed to represent the 1%, and the guy in the mask is showing up to exact vengeance.

The ‘Bane’ in the movie was more on the order of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ types, and their spinoff groups. Bruce Wayne/Batman came across as Mitt Romney. Perhaps the assault on the theater viewers was partly because the movie did not play on the obvious pun of ‘Bane’ and ‘Bain Capital’, because here, ‘Bane’ could in no way be confused with the operation of ‘Bain Capital’.

It was definitely not a ‘right-wing terrorist’ that expressed his rant so dramatically. But the possibility it was an ‘Occupy Wall Street’ sympathizer cannot be easily dismissed, as this is the sort of tactics they would employ, whether it be in a movie theater, a bus stop, a restaurant, or even out on a noon lunch hour rush in a business section of town.

Why was a graduate student (obviously not the best paying profession on the planet) able to accumulate what had to be several thousands of dollars’ worth of assault gear and high-powered ammunition?

To quote that famous American statesman, Barack Hussein Obama, ‘If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.’

I would say James Holmes was highly successful in his most recent endeavour.

But of course, nobody will follow the money. That would destroy the narrative.

I’m waiting for the gungrabbers to articulate what exact law they propose that could have prevented this tragedy. The guy apparently had no criminal record. He bought his guns from licensed dealers. He filled out the forms and cleared the background check. He had them in his possession far longer than any waiting period that’s ever been suggested. What, exactly, are they proposing?

The violent movie, the unarmed clients, the unexplainable shooter, unexplainable access, open door, perpetrator arrested unarmed, all very strange and unexplainable. Either a nutcase, or false flag operation. Do not think for one second that the Marxists would shy from slaughter of children to successfully completely disarm Americans via the UN Arms Treaty to be signed this week.

What should be banned is wide scale gratuitous violence depicted in the media and in public entertainment. It is sick and dangerous.

The tragedy is emblematic of the degenerate decadent mores In the US, which only adjust and hopefully improve over long term.

Here is a really good web page about how the Nazis disarmed the populace. Especially the Jews, targeted for extermination.

The blood is on the hands of Hollywood, the theater, and pop culture. After that the blame lies with the left, and then the Democratic Party.

Somebody needs to show them the video of the armed bank robbers running out of the bank when an armed citizen took them by surprise.

The liberal gun grabbers are out in FULL force now on Twitter. Check out their anti-gun rants and how they blame lack of gun control on the shooting. Sickening! We need to supply them with facts.

It is insanity to think that outlawing guns will keep people from killing people. The answer is; lift the infringements on the right to own and carry weapons. That includes increasing the places that allow these self-defense tools.

The government’s data shows that guns are used to defend against criminals more than 2.5 million times each year. Removing the infringements from this Constitutional right could save more people from being victimized by criminals. But the whiners will not consider that common sense answer.
The mass murders mentioned in this article don’t come close to matching the number killed in two mass murders never mentioned by the gun grabbers. Those mass murders are March 25, 1999 mass murder in the Happy Land social club in the Bronx, and the mass murder at the Dupont Plaza Hotel in Puerto Rico on Dec. 31, 1986. At the Happy Land social club 87 people were murdered. In the Dupont Plaza 97 people were murdered.

Of course, these murders don’t do anything to advance the anti-Bill of Rights agenda of people like the writer and Bloomberg. These mass murders were not committed with guns. The murders used fire to kill their victims.
After the Columbine High School killings the gun grabbers refused to implement the one solution with a proven track record of stopping school killings. They refused to even consider adopting the program Israel has in place.

After the Maalot massacre in the 1970s, when a large number of children were slain in a terrorist incident, Israel armed volunteer parents and grandparents and put them patrolling the schools. In more than 30 years no more children were gunned down in an Israeli school.

The reason is quite easy to understand. As the gun expert and civil rights worker, Massad Ayoob, once pointed out; “Just as wolves do not try to seize a lamb under the nose of the sheepdog, terrorists do not strike where armed protectors are known to be present. They scout the turf and select their victims more carefully than that.”

The sniveling whiner who wrote this crap is either insane and thinks that doing the same thing again and again will produce a new result, or like Bloomberg, isn’t interested in saving lives. His interest is disarming peaceful citizens.

i don’t care what it looks like, if it doesn’t fire full automatic it is NOT an assault rifle.

You are right. And anyway, when it comes to the 2nd amendment, the distinction between assault rifle and not an assault rifle is a meaningless distinction to me.

When was the last criminal in NYC sentenced to 20 years using a gun in commission of a crime where a person was shot .... and actually served the 20 years? When was the last time the death penalty given and executed in NYC where a person was shot and killed? The NYC village idiot and mayor should stick to soda ordinances.

There is always some fool ready to blame somebody else besides then person responsible for their actions. The man who did this is the person responsible. To blame Wayne LaPierre, Obama or Romney is idiotic. Why cannot you grasp a little reality and blame the fool who did this? Why go after these other guys? Is it beyond your reasoning to see that there are some really evil people born into this world and that, like lightning, we can do nothing about them? Come on, grow up!
