Yesterday we brought you reports of NRA President David Keene and NRA members receiving death threats in light of the Sandy Hook tragedy and now, Campus Reform has reported that University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis has called for NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre´s "head on a stick" during a rant on his Twitter page. Loomis also called the NRA a terrorist organization. “[I] want Wayne LaPierre’s head on a stick,” Erik Loomis, a professor at the University of Rhode Island (URI), tweeted. It “looks like the National Rifle Association has murdered some more children,” he added.”
Comments: That´s what we need, a call for more violence. s/o Where´s the condemnation from 0bama for these threatening, violent statements? We know we won´t hear a word from that hypocrite.
When sticks are banned only nutty professors will have sticks. The left is so convinced of their position and the evil nature of those that would disagree they can make complete fools of themselves without comprehending the irony or hyprocricy.
Guys like this and the union mob threatening the Michigan Gov. and his family are the reason folks hold on to thier "assault rifles". Single shots don´t do much good against an attacking mob. And for Sen. Feinstein, how about giving up your security detail? I´m my own security detail.

The ACLU, not the NRA is responsible for this tragedy, IMHO. Ct. had a law allowing involuntary committment to an institution on the books until the ACLU fought against it and it was removed. Had this law been in place, Lanza could have been put away and not harmed anyone. ACLU, you have the blood of these victims on your hands.
How is the head supposed to get on the stick? Will it jump off the neck on its own? No, it will have to be removed. How? How about a knife or machete? Ban knives. Maybe a saw? Ban saws. A box cutter. Ban box cutters. Twisted off by someone´s hands? Ban hands. But how would we remove hands? Can´t use a knife or saw, they´re banned. This "professor´s" brain is apparently already on a stick somewhere. It certainly is no longer in his head.
#1 Yesterday was the first time I heard ´assault weapon´. I thought that it was odd that they were using this term instead of the commonly used ´assault rifle´. Now it is understandable. Anything that can be used for protection will be labeled as an assault weapon. I guess the left thinks we should not assault our assailants. Just roll-over, play dead and hope they let us live after they do with us whatever they want.
I hope one of Loomis´s friends contacts the Rhode Island sheriff and expresses their concern about his mental health. He sounds unstable. He could do harm to someone. Come on law enforcement, check him out. Take a canine unit and let the dog sniff around his door. Seriously, check the record. Most horrific violent incidents brewed in the leftist environment and then exploded. This guy is unibomber material.
The reality is Loomis and the groups he supports, like the ACLU, are the ones responsible for tens of thousands of murders. When the NRA pleaded and offered to help implement Project Exile in cities like Providence, they were rejected by all but a few Democrat mayors. Those same mayors plea bargained criminals back into society to commit more crime instead of ENFORCING the gun laws already on the books. Loomis and people like him disarm the stalked citizens and allow crazed criminals to murder women and their children, store clerks, and ordinary, innocent people, EVERY single day. Someone needs to medicate this menace, before he attacks a student or anyone who disagrees with his death threats.
Put this down with the other hot rhortic of the left..like "Revenge, there will be blood in the streets, we know where your daughter plays soccer", and they bring of box cutters to Lansing MI rally destroying a tent, and a man´s hot dog stand! Movies, vidio game makers, and rappers with violent lyrics, are generally pro Obama,,,and the left. finallt "I Won" spoken by the same guy that said Revenge"in the campaign!
Decades ago, my old friend - as a promising teenager- went hunting, leaned his shotgun on a barbed wire fence, and moved the wire to crawl through. The gun fell and shot off several of his fingers, ruining what had been a promising career.
At about the same time, a gun use organization visited my high school and gave a lecture on gun safety which I have remembered for the past 66 years. They told us that all guns are loaded until you know they aren´t, never to point a person in jest, etc. and how to store them and use them safely. I think it was the NRA or a similar organization.
Well, Professor, why don´t you just head over to Mr. LaPierre´s house and try to collect his head for your ´´head on a stick´´ collection?
Just walk on up to the front door with your machette in hand, and inform his wife why you are there.
Then do whatever atheists do right when they realize they are about to die in a hail of very legal bullets (I´m guessing it inolves soiling of their panties). And that hail of bullets will just be from Mrs. LaPierre. A wimpy girlyman like you won´t take the power of a real man to stop. Of course, while being a lady, I´m sure that Mrs. LaPierre is still a lot tougher than you are.
Seriouisly, go on Professor. You sure do a tough tweet. Let´s see how tough you are when you have to face a real man like Mr. LaPierre face to face!!!
This fool teaches our misinformed students in Rhode Island. Loomis - I am not giving crap to satisfy you and other stupid liberal jerks! To All Reading this - GO and exercise you 2nd Amendment Right - Buy yourself another firearm and extra ammunition.
Only in academia can someone this stupid not only be responsible for teaching your children but keep his job and respect in his community.
It would be differant if he had a real job and actually performed a service to the country or even his students. He can not even control himself why would we assume that he can teach and control his students.
When your childrens come home and you realize that they are less educated than we they left home, look at this man and know the reason.
"They didn’t care about how they looked. It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused America to say enough is enough. ‘I don’t want to see it and I am not a part of it.’ What the hell! If you have to bomb little kids and send dogs out against human beings, give me a break." But Rangel had praise for a few Republicans. He mentioned New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, citing Christie´s criticism of House Republicans for delaying a vote on federal relief aid for states hit by Hurricane
The House voted Friday to prevent the IRS from enforcing any aspect of ObamaCare, a bill meant to exact revenge against an agency that Republicans say is incapable of neutral enforcement of the law. Members approved the Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act in a 232-185 vote. Four Democrats supported the bill along with every Republican. The vote capped off several days of work in the House on bills aimed at reining in government regulation and government overreach. House Democrats cast the votes as merely for show, given opposition from the White House and the Senate
The Los Angeles and Chicago metropolitan areas had the most gun murders among the nation’s fifty most-populous metropolitan areas in 2009 and 2010 (the latest years for which date is available), according to a report released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. During those two years, 1,141 people were gunned to death in the Los Angeles metropolitan area and 1,139 were gunned to death in the Chicago metropolitan area. The New York metropolitan area ranked third with 1,101 gun homicides. The Los Angeles, Chicago and New York metropolitan areas also ranked one,
Terrorist-supporting conservative uberhawk Rep. Peter King (R-New York), sounding very much like a man feeling left out of the Chris Christie vs. Rand Paul story, played the McCainesque America-Firster card against Paul Wednesday on CNN: [W]hat this reminds me of, someone like Senator Paul and others in that isolationist wing -- now, the Republicans had this debate back in the 1930s when you had the isolationists and the Charles Lindberghs that said we should appease Hitler. And the Democrats had it in the
EACH of us took turns over the past 43 years running the Environmental Protection Agency. We served Republican presidents, but we have a message that transcends political affiliation: the United States must move now on substantive steps to curb climate change, at home and internationally. There is no longer any credible scientific debate about the basic facts: our world continues to warm, with the last decade the hottest in modern records, and the deep ocean warming faster than the earth’s atmosphere. Sea level is rising. Arctic Sea ice is melting years faster than projected.
Let’s stipulate a fact: Most men cannot complete US Marine Corps combat training. Let’s stipulate another fact: Washing out trainees who cannot complete the training is one of the purposes of the training. Keep those who can complete it, weed out those who can’t. Let’s stipulate another fact: Washing out trainees who cannot complete the training saves lives by eliminating weak links in combat units. “Weak,” in the context of military combat training, encompasses physical and mental. Most people simply are not suited to military combat, male or female. The Pentagon is trying to integrate
Sen. John McCain appears cautiously optimistic that the House of Representatives will ultimately pass some kind of immigration reform — and says that the GOP is doomed in the 2016 presidential contest if the effort fails. “The crystal ball is a little cloudy because I think August is going to be a very seminal month,” he said, pointing out that members are back interacting with constituents and that a broad coalition of interest groups back comprehensive immigration reform. Mr. McCain was part of a bipartisan group that helped
The State Department issued a worldwide travel alert on Friday to U.S. citizens over an Al Qaeda terror threat, as the U.S. government prepared to close its embassies and consulates throughout the Muslim world this Sunday over security concerns. U.S. officials have not offered many details on the nature of the threat, but apparently are taking it seriously. John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the U.N., said the alert indicates the U.S. government must have some "pretty good information" about a possible threat. The travel alert issued Friday warned Americans of the
On Wednesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa reacted to criticisms from conservative talk show host Mark Levin had made on the same program just 24 hours earlier. In that appearance, Levin suggested the House Republican leadership wasn’t doing its due diligence in investigating the scandals involving the Obama administration, including the Benghazi terrorist attacks and the targeted audits of the Internal Revenue Service. Issa explained to Cavuto that his investigators and his committee were doing its best to connect all the dots,
The House approved an amendment to legislation Friday that would prevent the White House from imposing a carbon tax without congressional approval. The lower chamber agreed to Rep. Steve Scalise’s (R-La.) amendment by a 237-176 vote, with 12 Democrats crossing the aisle to support it. The amendment was added to an underlying bill that would require Congress to OK regulations that carry a $100 million economic impact or greater. That bill is dead in its tracks in the Democratic-controlled Senate, and the White House has threatened to veto it. Scalise’s measure doesn’t
Congress can breath easy now since it won’t be subjected to the ironically titled Affordable Care Act. As I mentioned on Tuesday, according to the New York Times, many in Congress were “freaking out” about having to get their insurance through the Obamacare exchanges without the lavish subsidies that they usually benefit from as federal employees. Manhattan Institute’s Avik Roy has a good summary of the issue t:his morning. Here is a tidbit: According to John Bresnahan and Jake Sherman of Politico, President Obama has personally involved himself in the
I think she’s one of the most fascinating women of our time and this world,” confessed Bob Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC, as part of his announcement that his network is making a miniseries about former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, with Diane Lane in the starring role. Words are funny things. For instance, G.K. Chesterton once remarked that that the word “good” has many uses: “For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of 500 yards, I should call him a good shot but not necessarily a good man.” So it is,
Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ´very personal´ emails with a Romanian diplomat but denies having an affair with the much younger woman after a hacker threatened to release their intimate messages. The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly 10 years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament. ´After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email,´ he told TSG.
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya. Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret. CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin
The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.
In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last
If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
American scientists claim the planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate in the past 65 million years. Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.
[Video] Ouch. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie turned down an offer by Sen. Rand Paul to join him for a beer and bury the hatchet in their ongoing -- and very public -- feud. "I´m running for re-election in New Jersey. I don´t really have time for that at the moment," Christie said in an interview on a local radio station. The New Jersey governor said if he finds himself in Washington, "I´ll certainly look him up." But he added: "I don´t suspect I´ll be there anytime soon. I´ve got work to do here."
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey — whose most recent work includes the psychological thriller, “House of Cards,” about an unethical congressman — said in a recent interview that most Americans just aren’t grasping President Obama’s greatness. “President Obama will go down as having passed some of the most historic bills in the history of this country,” he said, in a recent talk with Hot Press magazine. “That despite constant knee-jerk opposition from the Republicans. A lot of people don’t realize how much he’s done in the most difficult circumstances.” Mr. Spacey is far less appreciative of Congress. “It’s maybe interesting
Oprah Winfrey said Americans by and large know “diddly-squat” about the history of the civil rights movement. The talk show queen and media mogul made her comments during the promotion of her new film, “The Butler,” about a black man who serves in that capacity through seven administrations at the White House. “They don’t know diddly-squat,” she said in a recent interview with Parade magazine. “Diddly-squat.” Ms. Winfrey also said that when she hears the N-word, she thinks of the “millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.”
