Gun control activists turn bloody
with graphic details of Sandy Hook

Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/11/2013 10:19:58 AM

Frustrated gun control proponents are determined to pass stricter gun laws, but they increasingly turn to graphic depictions of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting to push forward their agenda. “I walked the halls where these unspeakable acts took place,” Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday during a gun control speech. “I saw the dried blood on the walls. I saw the horrific crime scene photos.” It appears that Holder believes that the acts themselves are "unspeakable" but not the gory details of the aftermath. Neither does Vice President Joe Biden, who implemented a graphic approach while making

Comments:
Holder and the rest of the sick, perverse political hack Democrats are disgusting in their exploitation of this tragedy. Never let a crisis go to waste indeed.

They are in full panic mode. That´s the only explanation. There is absolutely no intellectual argument for their attempts at erasing freedom, so they go entirely emotional.
Good. Maybe they are getting the idea that America really does not want to be a communist nation after all.

The bozo in the WH, Biden, Holder and the rest of the clown act pushing "gun control" are not pushing gun control at all. They are pushing citizen disarment and control. It isn´t about protecting citizens.It´s all about "fundamentally changing" this nation into a socialist utopia without having to worry about armed opposition.

Contact your Senator and let him know how you feel. WE did in Arkyland and our very dependable Reid lapdog Pryor has announce he will join the Rebublicans to oppose the proposed bill. He did this cause he knows he is toast if he votes for cloture and then the bill. For once our lobbying worked.

Gee Eric how about the blood of those killed by the weapons you unleashed in Fast and Furious? You know the hundreds of Mexican citizens...our own federal agents and lets talk about how many of those guns were brought back across the border and used here..by the Mexican Cartel..lets talk about that? And the blood on the wall of Benghazi? And Sandy Hook? The young man that did the shooting...if you and those of your ilk had not made it close to impossible to hospitalize violently mentally ill people like him..this would have never happened. So you want to talk blood...there is your blood and it is all on you.

#6, of course you find it ´amusing.´ The entire debate is a twisted exercise in some kind of grand social engineering that you think YOU can somehow enable. You are the typical liberal. So entrenched in magical thinking and elitist decrees, that you will never, ever, concede that opponents to your feverish Orwellian nightmare, have human nature, history and logic on their side. You slam the NRA as enablers instead of supporting their efforts to get ´gun free zones´ like Chicago to ENFORCE the gun banning laws you claimed would work in the past. All your efforts lead to disarmed citizens who obey the law. Criminals will still be armed, as they are in Chicago and NYC. Only under your thinking they can commit even more mayhem using anything they want. NO restrictions, like a potentially armed victim that they face now.

All of this conditioning on the path to the usual total government control slaughterhouse, could have been avoided IF liberals who put up ´gun free zones´ actually meant it and did things like build secure entrances backed up by lethal or non lethal force. That is a solution that the media and people like you are very careful to avoid mentioning. Why don´t you start a fund for that? Then you could work with both sides of this issue instead of putting more people in jeopardy by disarming them. If that is too hard, at least prosecute gun crimes in your urban gun free zones.

A part of the bill-of-goods being sold to us in these Universal Background Checks (UBC´s) is that it will somehow weed out persons who are mentally unstable.

Exactly how?

Federal HIPPA regulations make all medical records sealed to anyone other than the patient or doctor. Even a spouse must be specifically allowed to get test results and order prescriptions by the patient´s signature. The only exception is if the doctor believes that the patient is an IMMEDIATE threat to himself or others.

So we need a new violation of our privacy to obtain access to our medical records to determine what we have been treated for and what drugs we take?
Nothing wrong with that, you say?

Well, there are drugs out there that are used to treat psychotherapy problems and they are also used to treat physical conditions, either on-book or off-book. Just one example:

Cymbalta is advertised on TV to treat anxiety and depression, but it is also on-book (approved by the FDA) to treat diabetic peripheral neuropathy (nerve pain caused by diabetes), fibromyalgia (intense muscle and bone pain), chronic pain related to muscle and bone.

http://www.drugs.com/cymbalta.html
Cymbalta is used to treat major depressive disorder and general anxiety disorder.
Cymbalta is also used to treat fibromyalgia (a chronic pain disorder), or chronic muscle or joint pain (such as low back pain and osteoarthritis pain).
Cymbalta is also used to treat pain caused by nerve damage in people with diabetes (diabetic neuropathy).

cont.




So if Cymbalta is included in the list of drugs used to treat "crazy people" with anxiety and depression, what is to stop those people using it under doctor supervision for pain problems from having their guns removed?

Perfectly sane people can have their rights violated simply because they take or at one time took a single drug. And Cymbalta is just an example..... there are literally hundreds of drugs that have multiple purposes that cross all sorts of symptoms.

Let´s open up the discussion about poor parents and the fact that poor parenting is causing deaths. The media´s head would collectively explode before it would tell parents THEY were the cause of these deaths. And yes, that´s includes Lanza´a mother, who, by any stretch of the imagination should not have been involved with weapons with the loose cannon that was her son running loose. BUT, she shouldn´t have needed the Federal government to outlaw her 2nd Amendment rights. There is common sense and personal responsibility. Apparently she may have lacked both...and paid with her life. As did others, unfortunately.

In the Western tradition law is, or is supposed to be, reason without passion(Aristotle). The very last thing that should be allowed to influence the drafting and execution of legislation is strong emotion. Law is, or ought to be, a matter of deliberative reason. The deliberate attempt to inject emotion into gun control legislation is a sign that such advocates do not understand the first thing about Western jurisprudence. Their partisan, political passions, combine with their ignorance of history and everything else, have made them victims of their own passions and threaten to do the same to the rest of us.

We still do not have the facts about Sandy Hook. Nothing that is presently known suggests that any regulations being contemplated could have remotely affected the outcome. It appears the killer had long been obsessed with mass murders and had compiled an extensive documentation of such cases. He had, in other words, been thinking about and perhaps planning the crime for a long time, a year or more according to some reports. It is utterly fatuous to suppose that someone determined to perpetrate such a massacre would not have managed to obtain a firearm or a number of firearms to use. It might even have been much worse, e.g. Oklahoma City. It has happened before. 38 children were killed in the Bath School disaster: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_School_disaster

Stop and think of the blood shed in the Revolution, which won us our Freedom from a tyrannical King. Think of the bloody footprints in the snow as Washington´s Army marched barefoot. Men of sacrifice who believed in America and its People.
Our Founding Fathers were very concerned about a TOO powerful government, and wrote the second amendment to protect US against an overbearing Government.

Gun control and graphic details of Sandy Hook from Attorney General Eric Holder. Obama, Biden, Feinstein and leading Dems "for the children".

Abortion and graphic details of abortionist Kermit Gosnell´s trial and his horrific slaughter of innocents - not a peep.
He didn´t use a gun. Politically correct slaughter is ok with some folks.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said. Last year, a judge refused to toss a federal lawsuit against the company, including claims against Ms. Burwell

A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with the House GOP’s probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court. Rep.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.
