Former Pa. Gov. (Rendell): The ‘Good Thing’ About Newtown Is That it Was ‘So Horrific,’
The Blaze ^ | Jan. 11th, 2013 | Becket Adams

Posted on 01/11/2013 2:09:23 PM PST by DTogo

“The good thing about Newtown is, it was so horrific that I think it galvanized Americans to a point where the intensity on our side is going to match the intensity on their side,” said the former mayor, referring to the current debate between gun control advocates and supporters of the Second Amendment.

Unbelievably outrageous, but brutally honest from the gun-grabbing Left.

Using the death of my neighbors' children as an excuse to disarm me.

COME AND TAKE THEM!!

Yeah, they’re not even trying to pretend anymore, are they?

It is a refreshing change from that nauseating nonsense “all we want are a few reasonable gun laws”. Nobody with any sense believed that.

Not nearly as horrific as the dozens of school children Obama slaughtered with unmanned drones in Afganistan.

Collectivists love dead bodies, any way they can get them.

Executions, purges, reprisals, abortions, gangs, drug wars, pandemics, anarchy, revolutions, pogroms, natural disasters, mass shootings, all advance their cause.

There are no words for how horrific that statement is. Children died. Brave teachers died. The mourning will be entire lifetimes.

I can’t even suggest what Rendell should do. To take such an event and make it “a good bad example” delights Satan. Who will eventually take His due.

“The good thing about Newtown is, it was so horrific that I think it galvanized Americans to a point where the intensity on our side is going to match the intensity on their side,”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HOLY CARP! Tell me this is from The Onion. No one could be that stupid, right?

I’m wondering if this idiot is sad that there are no pictures of little dead 6 year olds? Wouldn’t that bolster his talking points?

“Oh, if only we could see pictures of dead children and bloody school desks! Wouldn’t that just be a cinch for gun confiscation?”

These people are bleeped up in the head sick.

people like rendell, coumo, bloomberg and the dems hollering and shuffling to the prog beat for control are enemies and make no mistake about it. They can control the idiot voters who put them into office but I’ll be damned if they control me.
Any slime pol who decides what I can own or not own is all about making illegal laws and we don’t have to fall into line and give up any damn thing to them.
It is time. No I won’t comply.

That sort of statement should attract investigators to Rendell to see what involvement he may have had in this event.

If you recall, shortly after the twin towers came down on 9/11 Chris Mathews said it was too bad that Bill Clinton did not have this kind of tragedy when he was Present Resident so he would have an opportunity to show how good of a pResident he could have been.

I wonder how the parents of the Sandy Hook children feel about the democrats celebrating the death of their kids. They must be so appalled by all this.

My wife infuriates me when she talks as if these political vultures give a damn about the dead children. They are scum who have no decency or morals. Liberal politics come before life, country and family. It’s no surprise our country is falling apart when filthy pigs like this are running it.

Oh yeah. Over 3,000 dead bodies to exploit. That would have been a democrat wet dream! Wow!

Remember Clinton tried to blame gun owners and Rush Limbaugh for Oklahoma city? They tried to use that crises for political gain big time, but they failed. They gave it their best shot, though!

There is usually a parked Newtown Police cruiser at most schools, but not always. Access into my youngest's school is not as easy for parents, but not difficult and still mostly voluntary (please buzz in and go directly to the front office). From a tactical perspective Newtown schools remain very soft targets for a determined individual(s); the primary reason being that once inside there would still be no resistence.

The superintendent Janet Robinson still sends out vague e-mail updates that specify nothing.

Security: FAIL

How was the event "horrific?"

No one has seen so much as a blood droplet or broken window at the school, and instead we are fed a bunch of lies and faked emotions from the "survivors."

Horrific lies, perhaps....

And for all we know the perpetrator, as crazy as he was, was also anti-gun. Maybe his goal was to perform an act of terrorism so horrible that it would lead to gun control.

Someone needs to communicate to Ed Rendell how different things might have been if the Principal had had a handgun in her top drawer and somebody in that office, even the custodian, had had the wherewithal to pull it out and use it and keep the perp busy for just a few minutes until the police arrived.
