For the young man who murdered so many innocent children and their heroic teachers, the events started not at the school, but when he murdered his own mother by shooting her four times in the head while she lay in bed.
At the school, it took the local police 11 minutes to respond but the killing was over. Each child had been shot from 3 to 11 times.
Please do not insult my intelligence by telling me what law would have prevented this. The magnitude of evil that was manifested took years to develop, and I suspect that his shattered family life was a significant component.
Tellingly, the first law that was passed to insult our intelligence and to insult the rule of law, was in New York State. That state doesn’t call itself “The Empire State” for nothing.
In their finest hour, liberals (er, now “progressives”) are all about finding “root causes”. Clearly this is not their finest hour because not a single feature of New York’s new law addresses shattered family life, as if any state law really could. And this in a state with 769 murders in 2011 but only FIVE of which were by rifle.
Judging by the common themes of progressives everywhere in response to the Sandy Hook School Massacre, it is an excuse to chip away at private firearms ownership and nothing else.
Why do I get the impression that these people are more and more like Gollum every day, spitting and hissing at anyone, any point of fact, any point of logic, or any provision of the Constitution, that gets between them and their ‘Precious’?
Me thinks all these things stand in the way of progressives gaining their ‘Precious’. Me thinks we have seen this before, with Lenin with Stalin and with Pol Pot. Me thinks we had better NEVER allow these people to attain their ‘Precious’, for if history is any guide, the much desired Precious Secular Utopia will be hell on earth.
Hey, I love violent video games. I wish people would shut up about them. Did anyone else see that stupid game Lanza played?
