Tragedy pimps need two things in order to succeed: A tragedy to exploit for their own political ends, and a good number of people who will believe absolutely ridiculous lies:

“It’s so unbelievable, and it only happens in America, and it happens again and again. There was another shooting yesterday, three people killed, I think, in a hospital. We kill people in schools, we kill them in hospitals, we kill them in religious organizations, we kill them when they’re young, we kill them when they’re old, and we’ve just got to stop this.”

It only happens in America… if you don’t count all these incidents.

We’ll never come close to figuring out how to cut down on the numbers of these horrible crimes as long as there are people like Michael Bloomberg being taken seriously in the debate.

But I guess this means Bloomberg will lead by example and have his security detail turn in their deadly guns, eh?

    Citizens are not supposed to carry guns to protect themselves. They're supposed to call cops. And the big advantage to having cops there is cops carry guns.

    Yes Doug, I find it incredulous that people by the thousands believe idiots like Nanny Bloomers, but they do ! Even when their statements have no supporting evidence and are in fact refuted by overwhelming evidence to the contrary, they enjoy huge followings.

    Here`s one that should have caused the Goracle to be laughed off the world stage;
    "It isn`t pollution that is harming our environment. It`s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it…" Al Gore, VP

    One more ? OK; "Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country." Mayor Marion Barry, DC

    How ARE these people being taken seriously ?

    For those who want someone else to do the protecting, it doesn`t matter that "When seconds count, the cops are only minutes away" !

    Like the liberal trolls who kept alleging bigotry by Republicans. They would say, "Name a minority appointed to a post in the Bush administration, other than Colin Powell or Condi Rice."

    Yeah, it's easy to prove anything if you throw out all evidence to the contrary.

    And there`s nothing that effects the environment more or worse than man ……… as long as you exclude the oceans, rain forests, grazing animals, volcanoes and that orange ball in the daytime sky.

    CA`s Dianne Feinstein has heard the clarion call to ban guns; she plans to introduce a new assault weapons ban bill on the first day of the new congress. I`ll bet she`ll demonstrate her vast knowledge of just what constitutes an "assault weapon" again, just like she did previously. As the story goes, she opened a copy of "Shotgun News" and with a Sharpie, circled all the "black" guns on the page, ignoring identical guns that were shown in bright finishes. Not only is she ignorant, she`s RACIIIIST !

    Nanny Bloomberg left out at least one victim class: Babies killed in the womb or at moment of birth. Could it be because he and others who want to ban guns support access to unrestricted abortion?

    "other than"

    In order for that prep. phrase to have full impact it's imperative it be said w/ as much disdain and contempt as possible. I mean moreso than they typical amount inveighed before bothering to say so much as 'good morning' to a conservative.

    Any time you hear that in conversation, your ears should perk up. The "take away close". DWS can't form a sentence without it.

    I liked him better when he was ruining NYC. At least he didn't affect my life.

    Hey Mikey,

    Why don't you worry about taking all those guns from the citizens of New York City? That will make it much safer for all that live there, right?

    As a gesture of your magnanimosity, you first.

    Thanks,

    Jeffy

    The disgusting thing about the whole subject you brought up is this:

    Due to the laws that are on the books, you can be cited on two charges of murder if you slay a pregnant woman, which simply means this:

    It's only a person if it's wanted.

    Tyranny at it's finest. I like you, therefore, you're a person. I don't like you, therefore, I can kill you.

    How nice if these Nannies would simply "go first" to model their ideas.

    Holliweirdos and Congress-Critters who want us to pay more taxes; YOU go first !

    Want us to be covered by ObamaScare ? YOU go first and let us watch how it works out for you before WE decide on our own whether we want it for ourselves.

    ETCETERA !

    Another thing that gets me is how many reports keep tlaking about politicians saying things like "we have to get automatic weapons off the streets". Umm, last I checked automatic weapons are illegal to own, not to mention it is semi-automatic weapons that have been used in these heinous acts. It just goes to show how little of the facts these politicians really know.

    Here is another thing that I have not seen discussed much regarding the whole "gun control" argument. The shooter tried to buy a rifle days before the shooting….but was denied due to gun control laws in CT. So, even though he was denied the purchase of the rifle he went out and found weapons to use anyway.
    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/12/1

    Also, the same day this shooting occurred a man in China went on a stabbing rampage in an elementary school. So where are the libs calling for a ban on cutlery?
    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/A/AS_CHINA_S

    And here is a connection between the two. The guy in China believed that the end of world was coming (see above linked story) and the mother of the shooter in CT also believed the end of the world was coming (the whole Mayan calendar deal).

    So perhaps the libs should be talking about banning the Mayan Calendar instead.

    After seeing the movie, 2012, I went out and bought a bunch of popcorn and a blindfold.

    The popcorn in case it comes true, and a blindfold if I had to watch it again.

    I found 1 story that actually points to the mental health issues and how it is so overlooked until something like this happens.

    You`re such a pragmatist ! ;-)

    DOUG, just so you`ll know, the "Irony Overdose" thread is requiring a WordPress login again and of course, it won`t allow mine.

    I HATE IT WHEN IT DOES THAT !!
