A New Assault Coming on 2nd Amendment Rights?
As we grieve with the parents of lost children there is nothing more tragic than what is becoming all too familiar to us- “School Shootings.” We all can identify with the senseless killings of INNOCENTS.
What can be more heartbreaking than seeing children killed as the reason for killing by someone with mental problems thinking their deaths will comfort their tortured souls.
Brace yourself for the next assault! The politicization of the school shootings. Mayor Bloomberg, an Obama water bearer, is already touting gun control from his municipal pulpit demanding Obama take immediate action.
“In a statement released Friday afternoon, Bloomberg noted that Obama rightly sent his condolences to the families in Newtown, but urged the president to immediately introduce reforms that would create more restrictions around gun control. He is the co-chair of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a coalition of more than 600 mayors who support gun control initiatives, through which he issued the statement.”
“The country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem,” Bloomberg wrote. “Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership – not from the White House and not from Congress. That must end today. This is a national tragedy and it demands a national response.”
Gun control should begin at the most basic level. OUTLAW the VIOLENCE in movies, tv and video games! Kids spend their time at home time playing video games using their free time learning about weapon use and pretend killing. Bad role model for latch-key kids.
It is almost an impossibility to find a movie on cable that it’s central theme isn’t about FEAR and VIOLENCE. If the government wants to curb gun violence, begin with what our children are watching on tv and at the movies. Prevent the video games available out there from falling into their hands as a babysitting tool passing the time away while the parents are away at work.
It is being reported, the 20 yr old Adam Lanza, was a mentally disturbed boy possibly autistic, who took out his rage and despair on the innocent students attending the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown CT.
Rather than working to disarm a country of citizens, perhaps addressing people diagnosed with mental problems need to be handled differently than they are now. To date, every single instance of mass shootings has been by people who have mental problems. From the Food Hood Massacre to Gabby Giffords.. From Columbine to Sandy Hook, the common thread among the shooters has been their mental instability as responsible for their deranged thinking and the killing of innocent people.
News just in- saying Lanza’s Mom was NOT a teacher at the school. School officials saying her name does not appear on any school roles in any capacity saying she may have been a school volunteer or an infrequent substitute teacher.
At any rate, this tragedy will be Obama’s springboard for another attempt at disarming ALL of America. Thereby allowing government officials to be the sole bearers of GUNS leaving Americans completely defenseless in the face of a potential totalitarian government takeover.
