The complicit media trumpets these sad stories with glee. It fulfills their boyfriend in the White House´s agenda. They are loathe to publish the occurrence of people defending themselves with weapons against criminals which occurs more frequently.

This story shows how misinformation is spread and, as a result, produces bad policy. From the story: "Lanza, who killed himself as police closed in on him, was armed with an AR-15 assault rifle." Lanza did NOT use an AR-15 which is hardly an "assault rifle" in any case. "As NBC admits in the video above, four handguns were used to carry out that despicable atrocity." http://www.ijreview.com/2013/01/30208-nbc-admits-no-assault-rifle-used-in-newtown-shooting/ This, of course, does not lessen the horror or the Newtown tragedy but is, once again, evidence of how the MSM misrepresents facts, possibly due to its own political agenda.

This incident is probably yet another hoax perpetrated by Zippy, the Muslim brotherhood and the MSM to take away our guns...and it´s not the first time. Evidence shows that the Newtown shootings were staged in Hollywood using actors and extras culled from the MSM, and directed by ODrama himself. It´s all a ruse to disarm Christians and place them into "Reassignment" camps in Western Arizona.

It would be pretty convenient to have that happen, until I had to shoot an intruder...

The leftists have turned semiautomatic rifles into lifelike objects, just the way they did with evil SUVs.
And the media include these rifles even when they have not been used.

Apparently #5 forgot to turn the sarcasm off. I don´t believe a lot of things I hear in the media, and Obama´s exploitation of a tragedy is despicable, but real people buried their real children in Newtown. Anyone spouting the insane theory that it was all staged should be ashamed.

Whatever you believe or want to believe that happened in Newtown...the questions are still there. Nobody is doubting that children were killed. The question is: ultimately by whom and by what motivation. Why, for example, was there printed online a call for contributions in memory of the Sandy Hook school children - two days BEFORE the shootings? That´s just ONE of the things that lead level-headed Americans to be suspicious of their government. In an age when you cannot trust the media or the government - don´t trust the media or the government.

No. 10, thank you for calling out No. 5. No. 5, if you really believe what you wrote, do some more research because that´s a pretty weird and paranoid thing to say.

No. 11, there´s a part of me that laughs and agrees with you! From the age of 13 to 20 is a dangerous time for boys - even the "normal" ones! But it´s during that age range where their emotions can reach overblown proportions.

We know nothing about this latest family tragedy - lets wait and see. But parents with guns and without them, remember your own teenage years and treat your kids with love and respect and reason.

If only drive-bys and other urban shootings got this much coverage.

In Stockton, California the local cable access channel shows posters offering rewards for information pertaining to unsolved murders every day. Some of these killings have been unsolved for years. No one wants to "snitch", you know.

Funny that none of the gun grabbers are concerned with this kind of crime. Perhaps it´s because they know it won´t stop when they confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens.

As I understand it, there were some 15+ shootings in Chicago over the weekend.
Let me know if you seen any national news reporting it, though. (Bearing in mind that Chicago had 500 murders via guns in 2012).

Probably another kid who was raised on Ritalin in school. Most of these mass murderers have a history of mind altering drugs or are on them. The guns probably belonged to the father. It´s NM we´re talking about. I would guess most homes in that area have guns.

Washington Post, by Emily Yahr    Original Article

For a family that has been vocal about disliking the media, the Palins sure have participated in a fair amount of TV shows. Continuing that tradition, Sarah Palin stars in “Amazing America with Sarah Palin,” premiering Thursday night on the Sportsman Channel. The docu-series follows the former Alaska governor/vice presidential candidate around the country as she and a crew explore “people, places and pastimes connected to America’s outdoor lifestyle.” This is just the latest in a long line of TV shows for the Palins — perhaps not unexpectedly, several have had their share of controversy attached.

Suddenly the subject of income inequality has turned into a global love train. Politicians and public-policy shops all over the world are hopping onboard. Naturally the engineer is Barack Obama, who gives speeches on income inequality and won a presidential election by rolling over 1% of the population. Democrats in this year´s midterm elections are running on income inequality, and this is rational. Their alternatives don´t look attractive, despite ObamaCare´s seven million recruits. Less obvious is the linkage being made now between global warming and—what else?—income inequality. Or that the International Monetary Fund is moving income inequality to the top of

Military Gun-Free Zones Clarified,

With the April 2 shooting at Ft. Hood--the second such shooting at that base in five years--it is important to remember that military gun-free zones were implemented under President Bill Clinton. As Breitbart News reported on September 17--the day after Aaron Alexis opened fire on unarmed personnel in the gun-free DC Navy Yard--military bases became gun free zones just months into Clinton´s presidency. To be fair, the original directive (5210.56) relating to military gun-free zones was issued during the last months of President George H.W. Bush´s presidency. Then, an implementing regulation (AR 190-14)--which clarified and revised 5210.56--was issued just months

The only thing missing from President Obama´s Rose Garden press conference Tuesday was a "Mission Accomplished" banner. He bragged that 7 million people have “signed up” through the health exchanges and claimed it was a “big step forward.” Americans are smart to be skeptical about these assertions. After all, this is the president who told us, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period." He said, “If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period.” He claimed the average family´s health insurance costs would go down by $2,500 per

MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin has formally divorced his wife, Lyudmila, after more than 30 years of marriage, a Kremlin spokesman said on Wednesday, following a surprise breakup announcement last year. “The divorce has taken place,” Dmitry Peskov said, without giving any further details. Putin and his wife announced that their marriage was over last June in a live broadcast on Russian state television, confirming longstanding speculation that they had separated. The Kremlin made clear at the time that their breakup had yet to be formalized. The ex-KGB spy, 61, keeps his personal life private and little is known about

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012.
