Skip to comments.Could this time really be different? (barf alert)

This time is different. You don't have to ask why. Twenty Sandy Hook first-graders are dead, having been shot repeatedly with a gun (legal) that looks as if it had been grabbed off a "Zero Dark Thirty" set, killed by bullets (legal) intended to cause maximum damage, set in action by a disturbed young man who was able (with his anyone-can-buy-it tool kit of death) to turn an elementary school into a war zone.
Of course it is different. The stoic president wept. The dead children's classmates brought stuffed animals to the funerals. We learned of the victims' brief lives, of Noah Pozner, whose mother told us he loved tacos so much he wanted to be a taco factory manager. Or a soldier. Or a doctor. He was 6 years old. His grave stone will read: Born 2006, Died 2012.
A nation mourned, as it has mourned before, but this time keenly aware that we were not only shocked by the senseless death toll but also shamed by the realization we had failed to protect our children.
This time it was so shockingly different that all the old arguments were immediately cast aside.

--someone who should have been under lock and key murdered his mother, stole her firearms and went to a "gun-free" zone and killed a bunch of people , none of whom could do anything but try and shield others with their body---
its tough to read so much stupid in one article and then realize he is able to vote
Its worse than that. He is perceived to be intelligent, and influences many people with this almost child-like understanding of facts.
I get so sick of seeing articles like this blaming the object, not the person or behavior. Time for a scientific experiment. Let’s put a loaded gun in a room full of children. Prevent anyone from touching the gun and we’ll see how many are killed. On the other side, let’s put a loaded gun in the room with a mentally disturbed person, looking to end their life but go out in a headline of infamy. How many will die? You can repeat this experiment with a number of items. While working in a prison, I once had an inmate who killed another with a pencil, others with bricks, homemade knives, hands and feet, and even lighter fluid. Point is, almost anything can be a weapon to a disturbed person with intent to kill. Yet we continue to blame objects, not the behavior. Time for us to wake up and treat the cause, not the symptom.

I think a really big question for which we need answers NOW is why is Littwin so pleased with acts of barbarism and torture.
It is as though a dark cloud of stupid has descended upon the land.
(Please feel free to do so for me should you have one for him).
A few days after the tragic Sandy Hook school murders, a young Marine in fatigues stationed himself at the front entrance of the Nashville elementary school his two children attend. Another parent heard him admit to a reporter that he was unarmed. The other parent commented that, even though the young Marine standing guard was not armed, it made him feel better to know he was there.
Its often been observed that perception is more important than reality. The observation is often correct. It is never MORE CORRECT than for those weve come to call liberals. I prefer statist but liberal has morphed from its classic meaning to the other end of the spectrum so Ill stay with it.
Since these folks operate almost entirely on EMOTION and FEELING, REALITY seldom allows FACTS to intrude upon the delusional worldview they have constructed and the comfort that provides them. It is that illogical, irrational and delusional mindset that prompts many of them to continue to quest after a Utopian society. The thought that such a society can and will never be achieved in a fallen world populated with failed sinners never penetrates whatever remains of their cognitive consciousness. Its a DANGEROUS WORLD and, as the liberals continue to define deviancy down, it becomes more dangerous daily.
There is another, far more sinister, level of the liberal call for gun control.
It was Mencken who offered that The urge to save humanity is most often a false front for the URGE TO RULE. He clearly had been a student of the liberal politicians of his day. Were he alive today and able to observe the likes of Chuck Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Obama and the rest, hed almost certainly have used far stronger language to frame his sage observation.
To conclude, dozens of studies reveal the FACTS concerning gun control. Those FACTS are that where firearms are widely and READILY available to law-abiding citizens, CRIME GOES DOWN! The liberals who willfully ignore the FACTUAL EVIDENCE and continue to call for gun control (i.e. the DISARMING of DECENT CITIZENS, thereby denying them the ability to exercise their God-given right to self-defense) are those about whom Mencken wrote: Their goal is NOT about preserving life. It is about the hell-bent pursuit of the impossible to achieve Utopian world where all are equal but some (thatd be THEM) are MORE equal than others (thatd be US).
There are many PRO-RTKABA videos on You Tube that your often busy lives dont allow you to find on your own. Search there for Gun Control, watch them and, more importantly SHARE THEM with the folks in your orbit.
Were in a fight. And losing will ultimately cost us much more than our right to our guns.
