It’s all about GUNS!!!!

Sure it is.

Let’s take a peek at the three recent headline generating shooting incidents see about that.

Gabby Giffords.

LoughnerCongresswoman Giffords was shot, and six people were killed, by Jared Loughner in 2011.  Democrats screamed about “guns” to no good result for them at the time.  But what about the shooter?  Could anyone have suspected he might be dangerous?

Loughner’s mother, Amy, described his run-ins with authorities, his use of marijuana and cocaine, his journals and his increasingly erratic behavior. She also says the parents took a shotgun away from Loughner after he was kicked out of a community college and tested him for drugs because his behavior was so strange.

Not only did they drug test him and toss him out of school, but the school ordered him to undergo a psychological evaluation.  He had numerous run-ins with campus police.  What did the school do?

Nothing.

Aurora Colorado.

HolmesJames Holmes, a former student, shot up a theater in Aurora Colorado killing 12 people.  The hype about guns ramped up again.  Bad guns.  Bad bad guns.  Ahhh, what about the shooter?  Could anyone have suspected HE might be a tad dangerous?

A psychiatrist who was treating James Holmes prior to his movie-theater massacre in Aurora, Colorado last July, warned police that Holmes had made ”homicidal statements” just one month before he killed 12 and injured 70 in a mass shooting…

Dr. Fenton also told police that Holmes had begun threatening her via text messages after he stopped seeing her for treatment. The police then alerted Aurora authorities about the threatening text messages shortly after the violent massacre on July 12, 2012.

AFTER the shooting.  Heck of a job by the police.  So, what did the authorities actually do?

NOTHING.

I would take time out here and thank Dr. Fenton for at least trying.

And that brings to Newtown Connecticut.

LanzaAdam Lanza, just before Christmas, showed up at an elementary school in his hometown of Newtown Connecticut and murdered 20 kids and half a dozen adults.  Needless to say the anti-gun lobby jumped on the event like it was the circus come to town.  Democrats finally got some traction – for a little while – on gun control.

We need to ban scary looking rifles – last year more people were killed with hammers than all types of rifles – and those assault magazines too!  It’s for the children!!!

Well, sounding like a broken record, what about Adam Lanza?  Any chance anybody might have thought he had a problem or two?

The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility…

Gee.  He was walking around why?

So, we’ve taken a quick look at three recent mass shootings.  They all involved the use of GUNS!  Although, only one involved a scary looking gun with one of those assault magazine thinys.  Still guns.

Oh, there is one other common denominator.  All of the shooters were raving nut cases..

The obvious conclusion has to be that it’s a GUN problem.  If you’re a totally irrational Democrat, incapable of rational thought.

    As obama has said there is nothing inconsistent with banning private possession of guns and the 2nd amendment. After all, the government IS the people so as long as the government has guns you haven’t taken them from the people.

    The only real question is when the left will drop the pretense that they aren’t a bunch of fascists.

    Don’t know about other states, but expect they have similar laws to W&I 5150 in The People’s Republik of Kalifornia. A police officer can take someone into custody and transport them to a mental health facility, if thhe reasonably believe the person presents a danger to themselves or others. Such involuntary commitments would preclude that person from passing a NICS background check (supposedly). I say that as recent testimony in Los Angles indicates that the state DOJ division responsible for such actions is THREE YEARS behind in their work. Despite the fact they have TWENTY MILLION in the bank – from fees collected from those purchasing firearms. Additionally, you don’t have to be convicted of a violent felony to get denied access to a weapon. Kalifornia also includes 26 misdemeanors that put you in the same “no weapons” category. Many states DO NOT forward info to NICS that also would restrict access to weapons.

    Yeah, we need MORE laws, because we can’t enforce the one’s we have now.

    BTW, Cho (Virginia Tech) was able to legally purchase a firearm as he VOLUNTARILY committed himself. Because he signed himself in, he was able to legally sign himself out.

    We could have had a national debate on the implementation of “Laura’s Law”. But the politicians don’t have the guts. In the 80′s we ‘freed’ the mentally ill from those evil institutions. Now we warehouse them (20,000 in Kalifornia) in our state prisons and county jails. My, aren’t we compassionate!

    The authorities on Colorado are doing something alright. They are going after a Fox News reporter that published a story about how the Aurora movie theater shooter was turned in by the shrink. This is a major CYA move on their part. They did not want the public to see how useless they really are when it comes to doing the right thing.

    Could it be that Liberals don’t believe in responsibility, personal or other-wise?
