Reminds me of the lady I heard who called Rush’s show yesterday. She said maybe if Lanza had to change magazines more he would have stopped and thought about what he was doing...

He didn’t stop and think after he killed his mom, or the first teacher, or the second, or the third. he didn’t stop after the first child, or the second, or the third...

He stopped when faced with opposing force.

Two things Americans have mastered is stupidity and making victims of themselves.

He had plenty of time to think. If he had lived, I don’t think a jury would have had much problem with 1st degree (premeditated) murder. Second or third degree is when somebody does something in a fit of violent anger, like picking up a knife or broken beer bottle in a fit of drunken rage. This guy planned his crime; he brought two or more guns and a couple of hundred rounds of ammunition. He knew exactly what he was doing, and more time would have simply given him more victims.

The lady who called was in denial.

Remember the stages of grief.

Anger - blame blame blame

Denial — “he would have stopped”

bargaining — if we go finestien this will never happen again etc.

finally acceptance -— for democrats skulk into their shadows to regroup.
