A Gun Or The Person Who Pulls The Trigger?

Instantly Politicizing A Crime Again? Why?

Outlaw Guns And Only Outlaws Will Have Guns

Yesterday started out with a tragedy, followed shortly by a tasteless speech by Obama with that pall hanging in the air and then just rolled down hill from there. One can guarantee that when some idiot, madman or not, with a gun goes off the deep end that our liberal audience here in the United States is going to blame the gun instead of the person pulling the trigger. So using that logic lets just ban knifes and forks to cure obesity. Is that how that works?

By now everyone should be saturated with information about the Washington Naval Yard's incident yesterday. Most of us were awake as it started going down and the speculation was thick and some of the Lame Stream Media took total rumors and started presenting them as factual. Many of the main stream media talking heads tiptoed around the fact that Aaron Alexis was black. Don't want to be accused of racial overtones now did they. If the shooter had been white the opposite would have happened. That's the sort of environment Obama has now fostered during the past five years.

If you want to know what Obama's son might have looked like, if he had one, then see the picture in the upper right hand corner of this article.

The first falsehood that the Lame Stream Media latched onto and started reporting as fact was that the shooter was using an AR-15 assault rifle to mow down his victims. Some of you reading this probably still believe that. That is totally false. Even if he had used that particular firearm it isn't the gun that was pulling its own trigger.

Jumping on the AR-15 immediately was the New York Daily News. in their editorial section. The AR-15 is a semi-automatic sport rifle which is widely popular for it's firepower and ease of handling. Right behind them came CNN with the same misinformation. Isn't the press responsible to report the truth and facts other than trying to make the news themselves?

Both of those idiot news media were 100% incorrect in their reporting and that is inexcusable. How do we know that? Because once that the Federal Bureau of Investigation let the smoke clear and gathered the facts to tell the real story Alexis was armed with a shotgun and a two handguns. There was no AR-15 involved what-so-ever. See how the Lame Stream Media wants to mislead the sheeple to exercise this administration's agenda? That's pathetic and some of you solid citizens of this nation need to remove your blinders and see it for what it is - propaganda.

Obama's Shills

How pathetic can they be when the NY Daily New's headline blared: "Same Gun Different Slay." The editors of that paper are despicable morons resorting to such language, It's even worse since it was a total lie. Then the idiot reporter spieled this mumbo jumbo: "This time the shooter is reported to be a Navy reservist named Aaron Alexis and when he is shot dead by law enforcement, taken out before he can put a gun to his own head the way Lanza did, he has his light, handy assault weapon with him, and a semiautomatic pistol, and a shotgun."

That's total rubbish sensationalism being passed off as journalistic integrity? This sort of nonsense if over the cliff garbage and people should be fired. Alexis had no assault rifle and even if he did it probably would have come from a downed security guard. In that case it would have been a fully automatic AR.

So then the British idiot Piers Morgan, who needs to be deported, did CNN's bidding by following up right behind the Daily News with that string of lies. Morgan is one of the biggest sanctimonious morons on the air and he did CNN's bidding of spreading the lies. For all you doubting Thomas's out there listen for yourself to this British idiot who CNN considers a journalist.

Don't Smash Your Computer Screen As You Watch

So Morgan wants to disarm the US military on bases? Within hours of Piers Morgan spreading a complete fabrication CNN has to walk it all back. This whole smear campaign by these supposed journalists smacks of making the AR-15 their boogieman, even absent the facts. This is glaringly the exercise of an agenda. That agenda once again is to try to ban the AR-15. Lets just forget that it was all made up in the first place in the name of journalism.

CNN is proving to be a liability to itself, Piers Morgan should have been fired ages ago. The network boondoggled the Boston Marathon bombing, then it pushed the envelope further by openly advocating gun control, then publicly convicted George Zimmerman before the jury had a chance to hear the evidence. And that's the role of journalists? Since when? One writer called CNN the punch line within hours of the Washington Naval Yard incident. The media needs to get it straight and not become the headline and punch line themselves. CNN should clearly see the source of its rating woes. Either they're blind or they just don't give a flip. Maybe Obama will bail them out.

HAPPY US CONSTITUION DAY!

I rest my case.

Frog: Let's go easy on the idea of banning knives and forks to cure obesity. Bleepin' Bloomberg will actually try it.

Presumably, the shooter's shotgun is the one he got for self defense after V.P. Biden encouraged him to do so. Joe was right, too; turned out it's a pretty effective weapon. Who knew? (Other than the fact that I use my late Dad's antique single shot .410 to decapitate rattlesnakes, but that would be an aberration and not pertinent to this media farce.)

I agree; Piers Morgan needs to be punted back 'cross the pond. Except they probably have their reject net up and in place already.

CNN: Completely Nonsensical Numbskulls.

Jim - If you laid a AR-15 and a Red Rider BB gun side by side, most of the lamestream Media could not tell you which one was the AR-15.

It is interesting how quickly they report without having their facts straight, but never come back and admit they were wrong.

I doubt that Obama will make any comments about this guy who could have been his son.

None of this really surprises me. The MSM can be expected to pounce on any weapon enough people actually want to buy. Why not blame a bigger rifle that can accomodate bullets with more powerful ballistics, like 50 BMG's? I'm sure the MSM would if they were popular enough. The facts don't matter to these loons. Just blame the weapons that are most popular, in the hope that what's left has little utility for most fair civilian uses, and then hope DiFi turns it into a law. All of this nonsense is an answer in search of a question. I note of importance that in all of the mass killings in recent years, all but one occurred in a "gun free zone." Is that coincidence? I think not. Then, just to be sure the criminals are totally safe, lets ban all pistols and rifles that are light enough to aim quickly (our friendly 50 BMG owners will have to remember to bring their tripods if they go out for a walk and are attacked, because, as they know from big game hunting, these things are a "bit" heavy) and can accomodate ammunition with enough kinetic energy to stop him before he kills everyone in sight. Also, don't forget to go berserk when the once a year mass shooting hurting or killing about 20 people occurs, but ignore the fact that 15,000 people per year in the US die from gun fire, mainly by criminals who buy guns on the black market (they don't obey gun laws, lest Congress forgets), and by defenders who would have died had they not been armed. We're actually lucky the 15,000 are ignored, because that's the same number that are killed annually in motor vehicle accidents. All those nasty dangerous metal cars out there. It couldn't possibly have anything to do with drunk drivers. These cars are guilty as sin, and must be replaced with new solar powered balsa wood cars (as a concession to people who drive AND own guns, those evil creatures, carriage of a firearm in the car will be legal, as long as the weapon is too heavy to aim or requires at least 25 hits to get a stop).

Stu - Solar powered and balsa wood. Don't give the idiots any ideas.

Frog,

Rising fuel economy standards may for a period make the balsa wood issue very real. If fleet efficiency standards become too high, car makers will have to push alot of hybrid subcompacts. Until existing larger cars are worn out, there could be a very dangerous mix of car sizes on the road. Of course, we have that issue now, but it can possibly become alot worse. The problem of course is that when accidents occur, the odds of injury increase greatly when cars of greatly different weight collide. Persons in the smaller car can be at great danger, especially when you consider the fact that subcompacts are priced as low as possible to serve as "entry vehicles" to build brand loyalty for later purchase of larger cars. This very low pricing necessitates weaker safety cage materials in the car frame than you would find in the mainstream compacts the auto makers really want you to buy.

I found this delightful and refreshing. I have often felt outnumbered by the liberals on here, and I am glad to see someone on here with some common sense. I agree that if we outlaw guns, the only people left with guns will be the outlaws, and the government, of course.

Anna... most of the time when the liberals rant it reveals their true nature. Good for the 1st Amendment... it allows us to spot the delusional, the ignorant, the power-hungry, and the simply stupid.

I'd say let them post as much as they want. It's fun to watch them stick their foot down their own throat.

The story we are hearing here is that the shooter had no weapons prior to attending a gun show over the weekend. He was allowed to buy a shotgun, and shells. He tried to buy something other than a shotgun, but the existing gun control laws prevented that. The story is that the shotgun was all he had when he entered the yard, and that the additional handgun was taken from a fallen guard.

With laws as is, it was bad, but if those laws had not been in place it could have been worse.

With respect to background, the news is reporting any number of arrests, but no convictions. It is still a basic principle of our justice system that people are only denied rights or opportunities on the basis of convictions in Court of Law, and not on the basis of accusations or arrests. If he truly was guilty of the things he was arrested for, then it is a failure of those local systems not to have convicted or punished him. The point here is that he would be less likely to be able to obtain access to the facility (and possibly less likely to be cleared) if he had been rightfully convicted of the things that have been mentioned in the news. The Justice system will fail if we choose to affect people’s livelihood on the basis of rumor and accusations.

FitnezzJim - The US government has been going on "the cheap" with paying people to do background investigations for decades now. being arrested is not being convicted so I hear you there. Lets just keep listening. The police in RI ran into this loon recently, reported what that encounter entailed to the military so where did that go?

Most people cannot see the propaganda on this issue. Sadly. Under a strict gun-control law the only people having guns would be those who are harmless. However, if someone really wants a gun, like those who mean to harm others, they will find a way.
