I have been waiting to comment on this until the facts came out.
If one were to dig no deeper than the veneer on the surface of the desk in front of you, it is a clear-cut case of “Gun Control.” Yes if you don’t look at any of the facts, you go after the guns of law-abiding citizens. You get corporations to stop doing business with the NRA as they are “Obviously a state sponsor of terror!”
If it were not for the NRA, there would never be another gun death in the United States and somehow the Republicans and more to the point Trump is to blame so says the learned Barbara Streisand. “Trump just brings out the hate in people.” “Could it be that narcissist who tells you how great they are with their own special award shows, who are also out of touch with Americans, bring out the hate in people?”
Got all that?
- Collect the Guns
- Do away with the NRA
- Only vote Democrat from now on, as Republicans are evil.
- There will be no more problems with violence of any kind, ever.
- We will then all hold hands and sing I would like to buy the world a Coke ….It will be great!
If any of this rings true for you personally, maybe you should let up on the cocaine.
Anytime the media offers answers that are this simplistic, they are making an emotional argument to manipulate the masses. They have an agenda. While it may not be the media itself with the agenda they are most certainly a puppet for someone who does.
The facts of this case are stunning.
Straight from Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky “Never let a good crises go to waste!”
For reasons one can only speculate on, liberals hate the 2cnd amendment. They hate the 1rst amendment too, but not nearly as much as the 2cnd.
Other world leaders in the past did not want an armed society so they went about taking the guns away using crises like Florida to justify it. Hitler, Stalin, Mao to name just a few.
When a young French Jewish teen shot a German diplomat “A crisis was used to confiscate the guns.” German Jewish people were stripped of their guns and then any other rights as well as their property.
Many argued for common sense gun legislation including registering all firearms. Without the aid of computers or the Internet, the Nazis collected all the guns, even rusty revolvers from “the great war.” Failure to turn over a weapon was a death penalty offense. Millions of Jews were later massacred anyway.
1932 to 33 Stalin engineered a mass famine by increasing the grain production quotas to be shipped elsewhere. Millions of his people “peasants” starved to death. Without a way to defend their selves against a repressive regime, they were doomed.
Mao took their guns away and then slaughtered 20 million of his own people.
History is rife with these examples, but you may need to find it in books, as a quick search of the internet shows sites which are re-writing history to put a different slant on it, or denying it happened all together. Sound familiar?
So what happened in Florida?
Cruz was a ticking time bomb, and everyone knew it. His teachers, his family, and the local police, all knew it.
An argument was made not long ago that there is a school to prison pipeline. In November 2013 policy was created. Stop reporting the violent behavior of students as a record might impede the student from getting into Yale or Harvard later on in life.
It wasn’t their behavior that was the problem it was the evidence of an arrest.
It was about this same time a teacher in California was beaten by a black student as she dared to ask for his homework. She was encouraged not to file charges by the administration of the school as a police record would hurt his future success as a student and a citizen. The excuse given was that “Blacks are more emotional, you must give them more latitude! What is a broken jaw or black eye compared to a kid like that ending up in prison?” FFS, no wonder you can’t find good teachers!
Cruz was caught up in this same moronic thinking. He threatened to kill on many occasions, fellow students. He kicked in doors, started fist fights, threatened to kill people around him, killed small animals in wicked ways, drank gasoline, cut himself and pulled a rifle on his mother among many other issues that should have had this kid locked up.
Many of his fellow students reported his crazy behavior. All of this psychotic behavior never even got him expelled as they did not want it on his record.
Had his behavior been dealt with appropriately and not under some brain-dead policy of “targeting people of color or minorities” This shooting would not have ever happened. He never would have been able to buy a gun.
The time bomb went off, and people died.
The experiment of not holding people accountable for their behavior failed miserably, and lots of folks are dead. But Wait…. CNN knows the real reason…
Gathering up a bunch of emotional students they quickly told them it was the fault of the NRA and Trump and of course Republicans. They gave the kids some talking points and pointed the camera at them. Giving these passionate kids a microphone, hell a town hall on national TV, they talked trash to a sitting president of the United States!
As the shooting is taking place, we learn that first responders don’t enter the school. I guess they were waiting for him to run out of bullets or people to shoot. Maybe they were waiting for him to have a moment of sanity and just stop what he was doing. Whether it was training or cowardice, we may never know why they didn’t stop the kid from killing people. They also did not go in and try to save a life with whatever methods that might have worked. We learned that they stopped the EMT’s from going into the building.. We also learned that it was police from another district that came in and went into the building. No, it is the NRA and Trump…according to CNN.
Whatever spin they try to put on this is just nuts. They screwed up!”
Tips about this kid had been made to the FBI, and they did not follow up.
The citizens of Broward County did the right thing. The government, both local and federal failed them!
Straight from Rules for Radicals CNN jumps on the bandwagon bringing in “experts on Guns!”
The AR style gun is “Fully Semi-Automatic!”
Experts my ass!
A gun is either fully automatic or semi-automatic. I don’t know what the hell a Fully semi-automatic weapon is. I guess that is like saying Clam Chowder Soup! It is either Chowder or Soup.
There are many semi-automatic guns. You pull the trigger, and it goes “bang!” The gas from the explosion operates a mechanism which ejects the empty cartridge and puts another new bullet in the chamber making it ready to pull the trigger again….That is semi-automatic.
Fully automatic is you pull the trigger, and the gun continually fires another round until you take your finger off the trigger, or you run out of bullets. Without a special license, you cannot own a fully automatic weapon.
“Why would you want to?”
There are those that would want to, however. Those same folks might want to buy a version of the AR that is semi-automatic.
Many rifles are semi-automatic. The only difference between an AR style rifle and a deer rifle or one used for hunting is the AR looks “bad ass!”
Why do you want a sports car when Volvo will do the same thing?
Why do you buy designer clothes when clothes from Walmart will cover you perfectly?
Why do you want to buy designer shoes or bags when Inexpensive options are out there?
Why do you want or have an expensive watch when a cheap Timex tells you the time of day?
The AR looks bad ass.
Just what are we teaching these kids in Broward County?
Not only did the legal system fail them, but some boneheaded policy to protect minorities from themselves failed them, and finally the teachers failed them. Never mind not respecting your elders but not respecting the office of the president of the united states! WTF?
Just to be perfectly clear, neither the NRA, or Republicans or Trump had anything to do with this. Nice Try CNN! #Emma, get the facts! “We get that you are upset, we are too!” We here in Texas lost a lot of people to failures of the government, no not the NRA. The people that we elect and those that are appointed by those elected failed you and they failed us.
Like those that fight in battles to keep you free, the NRA fights to protect your rights. That is why they exist. There are many on the left for some nebulous reason want to remove your rights. If you would read history and not from Snopes, you will learn that stripping you of your rights comes first, before you become a subject, instead of a citizen.
The Chinese president currently is trying to do away with Term Limits in his country, leaving him the ultimate dictator of one of the if not the largest economies on the globe. How can he do that you ask?
Control the media, control what people can and cannot say and of course remove any weapons that they have. Possession of a firearm is China is forbidden. A disarmed society is a compliant society.
When people scream gun control, be careful what you ask for.
Presidents have been running on enacting term limits for congress forever, it has never happened. Why?
Do you really think Trump is that powerful or is it perhaps the people who make the laws that are the gods?
Those with the gold make the rules.
I will be working again on Gods and Insects in the near future.
