Arizona GOP candidate says Democrats are behind most mass shootings
Yahoo News ^ | 5-18-14 | Dylan Stableford

Posted on 05/18/2014 6:47:39 PM PDT by windcliff

An Arizona rancher and Republican congressional candidate said during a primary debate Saturday that the vast majority of mass shootings in the United States are committed by Democrats.

“If you look at all the fiascos that have occurred, 99 percent of them have been by Democrats pulling their guns out and shooting people,” Gary Kiehne, who is running for the state's 1st U.S. Congressional District, said during Saturday's GOP primary in Florence, Arizona. “So I don’t think you have a problem with the Republicans.”

When asked how he would protect gun rights, Kiehne, a hotel owner and member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, said he probably owns more guns and ammunition than any of his fellow candidates ("I'm from the country; it's a long ways to town to buy ammo," he said) and that "everyone should own a gun."

Democrats need to control guns because they know they can’t control themselves.

I remember other Freepers posting research that showed most/all mass shootings in the past 40 years have been by outright democrats or people with “progressive” political views.

Hitler - Socialist
Stalin - Communist
Pol Pot - Communist
Mao - Communist
KKK - Democrats

Who freed the slaves? Republicans

I don’t know about 99%, but I think that 90% is a likely enough figure. Virtually every school or mall shooting I have read about ends up being a leftist perp or a Muslim—or both.

This fact should have been trumpeted by the GOP for years. It is right there in the numbers. It is not debatable nor should it be ‘debated’. Merely reiterate the numbers and let the libs scream.

That it has not been pushed heavily by any of the GOP or even the gun groups when it is really such low hanging fruit just goes to show how little any of them WANT to stand up for the gun owning rights of Americans and how little they want to ‘win’ at all.

Yeah. Not only “progressives” but IIRC a high percentage of them were or had been on psychoactive drugs - treated for depression, ADHD, selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, etc.

Can anyone point me to any info to support this claim? I can’t find any.

The only near constants I can find are that all except one were committed by men and almost all had displayed some form of mental illness in advance of the shootings.

The traits that the American mass shooters have in common is that they were atheists and stark crazy.

The traits that the Democrats have in common are .. oh never mind, I see what point he was trying to make.

I like his views on guns, but not on all issues.

“Kiehne said deporting every illegal immigrant isn’t realistic.

“I don’t believe you can just grab every one of them and send them back to Mexico or wherever they came from,” he said. Instead, he would take an inventory of the people who already are here and place them in work programs if they’re not criminals.

Many illegal immigrants are contributing to society and aren’t asking for citizenship, he said. He would allow those people to apply for work-visa programs that allow them to work here for a limited time. Those programs currently require people to apply from their home country.

“If you really want to look at the cold, hard facts, I challenge you to go to a construction site anywhere around the Phoenix/Tucson/Maricopa area and find a framing crew that can speak English,” he said. “If you like $100-a-square-foot homebuilding costs, you’re gonna love $200-a-square-foot homebuilding costs if you package all of ‘em up and send ‘em home. The truth is they’re here, they’re working.”

Illegal immigrants who are criminals must be deported, he said, and securing the border will help stop smuggling “and the potential terrorists that have been coming across there.”

Look at the ‘regular’ gun crime figures as well. It is not Bible thumping hunters who vote Right wing populating America’s jail cells. Nor is it VRWC members and TEA types putting arses in the vast majority of correctional facility cots.

It is mostly by a wide margin, people of a liberal/Democrat supporting ideal. Most crime is committed by liberals/Democrats. Regardless of the category. Scratch a criminal, find a liberal/Democrat.

Despite all the hoopla in the media, ever see a story about Right wing serial rapists? Or any other crime of violence? They had to reinvent reality with McVeigh to even put him in the same universe with Right wing politics.

Since they froth at the mouth to attach right wingers to evil, where are the stories? That is the most telling part.

The media is trying to make this another “stuck your foot in your mouth” statement. Only problem is that it’s basically true, especially when you consider that at least half of the killings in this country involve a minority pulling the trigger.

Visit the average prison - over 90+ percent of inmates are democrat...

If democrats pushed through comprehensive gun control it would result in criminals taking over the billion dollar gun industry in the United States. The mob and Mexican drug cartels would double or triple their reach and power.

Insider democrats know this - - especially the corrupt ones out of places like Chicago.

As much as the press likes to portray democrats as innocent foolish white women who are afraid of guns that's just NOT where the big money going into ‘gun control’ is coming from...

The common thread behind these democrats shooting innocents is the philosophy of the democrat party. They preach hatred, envy, racism, and victimhood day after day after day. The mentally unbalanced or just plain evil think their actions are then justifiable and right. The Democrat party has a hand in this violence due to their evil philosophy.

Loughner was registered independent. You have to scrub this list if you want credibility.

Adam Lanza?

The Columbine shooters?

Tim McVeigh?

You’ll have a hard time convincing lefties if you don’t have those on your list. This is being debated on the ABC news site right now.

Student On Arapahoe School Shooter: “Very Proud Of Being A Socialist”

The gunman responsible for Friday's shooting at Arapahoe High School in Colorado is being described as a “socialist” by his fellow students.

“He was friendly enough. Very proud of being a socialist. He was very outspoken on his political views,” student Angie Mock said. “To him, it just meant economic — more economic equality.”
