Because There’s Nothing Political About Mass Killing

The author says “with the blood of the victims still wet on the ground, people jumped to politicize the event”. But people don’t need to “jump” to politicize something that is inherently political. The decision to murder 59 people and injure over 500 others is not somehow “non-political”, it is the ultimate in politics: making the decision to end someone’s life is about as political as it gets, whether it’s mass murder or the death penalty, or a declaration of war. This statement about “politicizing” an “event” is code for “I love guns”. Apparently there is no appropriate time to discuss gun control because the weaklings who depend on them for their false sense of power and self-worth have no realistic argument against it. Every time one person shoots another these people are complicit in the commission of a crime.

Ann Coulter Says Gun Violence A “Demographic Problem”

CoulterGuns2

Republican centerfold and Fox News harlot Ann Coulter says gun violence is a “demographic problem”. Coulter suggests we need to take guns away from minorities but leave whites armed. But not all whites: obviously the poor ones can’t have guns because they’ll just sell them to buy health care.

Maybe He Did And Maybe He Didn’t

“When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

falsely attributed to Thomas Jefferson

What he actually said was the above, plus:

“Unless the government has tanks and planes and missiles and satellites and billions of dollars – then you’re fucked no matter how much you like to pretend you’re Rambo.”

Obama To Literally Swear On A Stack Of Bibles

ObamaSwears

The White House has announced that President Barack Obama will take the oath of office with his hand on not one but two bibles. One of the bibles belonged to President Abraham Lincoln, and the other belonged to Rev. Martin Luther King. Obama identifies strongly with these two men because Lincoln brought the country through a time of great internal conflict, because King brought about great social change, and because both were killed by white men with guns.

NRA’s LaPierre Says Put Armed Guards In Schools

NRALaPierre

 

National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre has called for armed guards in schools to protect children from gun violence like the recent Sandy Hook school massacre in Newton, Connecticut.

“You know, five years ago, after the Virginia Tech tragedy, when I said we should put armed security in every school, the media called me crazy,”  LaPierre said. “And here we are five years later and I’m still a batshit looney!”

The NRA has called for a wide-ranging “fight fire with fire” campaign, saying we should treat cancer by giving people more cancer, and we can cure congestion of the nation’s roadways by getting more people on the roads. LaPierre also called for more debt to fix the country’s current debt crisis, and suggested we could cure political gridlock by being even more fixated on divisive rhetoric designed only to play to a core constituency – say like gun owners, for example.

Gingrich Blames Secular Govt And Video Games For Gun Violence

GingrichTwinkies

Former presidential candidate and current cipher Newt Gingrich stopped drinking and got dressed long enough to make a statement on a morning radio talk show that the massacre of children in Newton, Connecticut, was caused by a combination of “anti-religious secular” government and violent video games, and not by the mentally disturbed perpetrator’s easy access to a semi-automatic rifle.

Actually the morning talk show was Gingrich’s second stop Wednesday morning, right after he went to the bank to deposit a hefty check from the National Rifle Association.

Iowa Minutemen Upset About School Security Drill

Here’s a story over on FoxNews.com about how some Iowa gun nuts are pissed-off with a school security exercise. Apparently the mock shooting scenario involves a racist student with a gun shooting another student.

Robert Ussery, state director of Iowa Minutemen said “I believe it’s politically motivated, it’s wrong and it’s a slap in the fact to any person that loves our country and is concerned about our border security.”

Let’s get Aristotelian here.

A: If you are going to go on a killing spree you probably own a gun, and if you own a gun you are probably pro-gun ownership.
B: If you are going on a racially motivated killing spree it’s a good guess you might be a racist.

I don’t think the implication is that all gun owners are insane racists, just that most insane racists are probably gun owners.

However, if you belong to an organization that is strongly opposed to illegal immigration, that “patrols” the border (I guess the one with Missouri) while armed, and that calls itself “Minutemen” (maybe it’s a sexual reference), the chances that you are a racist, gun-toting idiot are probably somewhere near 100%. You have to wonder what Mr. Ussery is against: the portrayal of a school shooter as a “Minuteman”-type crazy person, or the idea there is something wrong with shooting people who aren’t white.
