CNN's Piers Morgan Exploits 'Dark Knight' Massacre To Push Gun Control
http://www.briebart.com ^ | July 20, 2012 | John Nolte

If there's an American tragedy, within hours you can always expect our corrupt media to feast on the corpses of the victims in order to push their left-wing political agenda.

As we saw with the horrifying Tucson murders a couple of years ago, where within an hour the media was blaming Sarah Palin for the killings, these are awful people who can never stop proving how awful they are.

Case in point, CNN's Piers Morgan who is already exploiting 12 deaths and dozens injured to push for gun control:

Different nutcase shooter, same old story from the libs. Take guns away and this will not happen! I wish this Piers Morgan would take his goofy looking ass back to England. This socialist actually gives CNN a bad name.

The irony is Piers is a huge fan of Arsenal FC, which are known as the “Gunners.”

I wish he’d spew some of his Socialist limp wristed British BS down here in my little neck of the woods. I’d gladly drive his bloodied pulp of a body west for a short stop in Texas. Anything left belongs to Oklahoma.

Deal Piers?

You’ll find a number of well-meaning but clueless people think along the same as Morgan today. They don’t grasp gun rights in the first place, and this just drives them over the edge.

These people think of the right to own a gun in the same terms as they think of owning a basketball, a baseball bat, or a fishing rod. They don’t understand owning guns is the last defense the people have from invasion, from evil people, and sadly as a last resort their own oppressive government.

One thing that amazes me beyond belief, is the occurrence of these types of events just prior to critical “gun-rights” moments in our nation’s history.

Right now there’s the push to sign on to the U. N.’s treaty to ban private ownership of guns.

I expect Obama and perhaps even Romney to go south on us if they see it as politically expedient.

Will Century Theaters be held accountable for allowing
someone to exit and re-enter the theater with weapons.

Yes-—all Marxist/Leftist philosophy is about destroying God-given Rights and replacing them with a master/slave society-—where the masses can’t do anything unless allowed by the few elites/masters.

The elites have managed to destroy our 2nd Amendment rights to make this type of incident more common.

They remove logic and reason from the schools-—teach Heather has two Mommies-—to destroy Logic and make the idea that More Guns; Less Crime is not true-—when ALL LOGIC AND REASON AND HISTORY proves that Freedom to own Guns is the ONLY thing which allows FREEDOM in a society.

All history proves-—no gun ownership—and you get slavery and massive killings of the people—whomever the elite wants to eliminate so their playground is not contaminated and is just for their own leisure and enjoyment.

Marxist-trained idiots will think “up is down”, Good is Evil, homosexuality is “good” and a “right” and all other stupid, illogical things-—so that anything STATED by Government becomes the TRUTH.

Government is trying to condition us (BF Skinner) into thinking Guns are Evil-—when it can never be so-—Godless people are evil and if good people do not own guns-—then they will become slaves of the Evil people who will own guns.

It is all about believing in THE BIG LIE—and ejecting God. The Founding Fathers were geniuses and understood the nature of evil and slavery and the importance of God-given Rights for Freedom.

If one person in that theater had a concealed carry permit and had their gun with them, the bad guy would not have been able to kill as many people.
Back 25 years ago when airplane hijackings were going on everywhere in the world, my dad had a remedy to stop them. He suggested that they issue a gun to everyone as they board the plane. There would be no more hijackings and no more hijackers.

Piers Morgan LOVES these events because he can use them to push his political opinions. Doesn’t care much about who died; just as long as it’s headline news. IMO

So far I’ve been surprised that nobody is mentioning the 71 year old man recently shooting the FL internet cafe strong arm robbers - could have used one man like that in Colorado.

I've given that some thought. In a crowded theater, as pandamonium erupted in the dark, with teargas spreading in the air, the tactical opportunity to get effective shots at the perp would not have been favorable unless there were several folks or at least one in a good position early in the event.

In short, I would have been sitting in the middle of the theater. By the time I realized what was going on, I expect bodies would have been going in all directions. I suspect that most of the folks that escaped unharmed didn't get a good look at the perp at all.

A national radio show, the Schnitt show, had a guy on for twenty minutes that was in theater #9 from the start.

That and other reports make clear that the shooter walked up the aisle shooting people heading for the exits but at one point must have had a 1/4 of the front theater behind his back.

Anybody armed behind him might have been able to just soot him in the back of the head - he did have body armor.

Oops - nevermind - Schnitt is saying per the lead investigator, officer “Oats”? the guy was decked out in body armor head to toe ... helmet, neck, torso and leg armor! Usually that’s frontal protection?

Some lessons come hard to communities that seek to control their surroundings and protect them from danger.

Colorado has sure had its fair share of getting kicked in the gut and then some the past decade or two.

Looking back, they seem to have invited danger instead of learning how to deal with it.

Still, it would have slowed down the carnage with some return fire and given people a chance instead of either being shot at the exits or waiting to be executed huddled between the seats.

Oops. Instead of “sooting” him in the back of the head I actually recommend “shooting” him in the back of the head. Sorry if anyone was confused. ;-)

A lot of this crap would stop in a hurry if 50% of the population carried concealed. If there’s not a metal detector then I’m carrying unless prohibited by state or federal law. Of course that means, no weapon in a bar, government meeting, the post office, school sports events, etc. (FL and Fed law).
