NRA Should Have Noses Rubbed In Mess On Floor Of Newtown Elementary School

December 14, 2012

Let me be direct.

What the **** is going on in this country?

Are we reverting to the old west where colleges campuses, our public spaces, and now even an elementary school are the places where the NRA are to be allowed to play politics to the point that 20 kindergarten kids are shot to death?  Are the rational people in this nation with education going to continue to allow the NRA to run things so that anyone can arm themselves to the teeth with unlimited guns and rounds of ammunition so to wreak mayhem and death?

The NRA is one of the most powerful lobbying groups in this nation.  As such today the NRA has to address the slaughter that took place in  Newtown, Connecticut.

But really, what can they say?

The bullshit response of ‘guns don’t kill, people kill’ gags the nation like rotten eggs left in a car in mid-July.   Only the most severely uneducated rube or overly blind partisan would ever make such a claim.

I think the top lobbyists and promoters of the NRA should be taken to Newtown and once the bodies of the victims are removed have their noses rubbed in the mess that remains on the floor of the school.  Let them smell the results of the deranged policies they advocate.

Make those same NRA leaders attend every single funeral for the small children who will not open any presents under this year’s Christmas tree.

Let the NRA explain to the locals of Newtown about why gun-interests are more important than the national interest.

Better yet perhaps someone from the NRA brain trust might suggest why this all could have been avoided today had the kids in Connecticut been armed.

There is a great need in this nation to no longer allow the tail to wag the dog when it comes to gun control measures.   There was a blood-letting today that will make the headlines, but the NRA is counting on most Americans to forget this horrible story by the time Sunday football starts.  The NRA will not be mentioned again until another mass shooting.

And on and on it goes.

The NRA will continue to torpedo gun control legislation, and threaten politicians.  The NRA will use the brain-dead who repeat the crap they spew to bluster on right-wing media.

Winter will turn to spring.  2013 will turn to 2014.

More guns will continue to be sold, countless rounds of ammunition will be bought.

Untold amounts will be fired.

And we all know that some of those will be fired into innocent kids, like which happened today.

We need to find our balls on this issue and stand up and demand from our legislators that they also find theirs.

The NRA needs to know they are no longer in charge.

Our nation is too important to allow the games the NRA plays to continue.

If you think I am wrong talk to a parent of a dead child in Newtown.

    A note to WP….so-called dum-dum bullets and hollow-point bullets are still very much being manufactured and used to kill and injure all over the nation……..

    Cop killer bullets aka armor penetrating rounds are already illegal, they have been for over a decade.

    The second amendment though is not about hunters or target shooters. The US vs. Miller case made it very clear that the 2nd amendment is about guns that are for militias and that owning a firearm does not require to be part of an active or organized militia. Also guns that are classified as hunting rifles or shotguns generally use much more powerful ammunition compared to these military style semi-automatic rifles.

    I agree with Denny, and have posted my views for gun control, based on the comment left by Dale. Really want to do Christmas cards this afternoon, but my mind keeps heading back to the kindergarten room and and sadness…..as such here are my views of the themes we need to head as a nation for getting this problem reigned in….http://dekerivers.wordpress.com/2012/12/15/what-i-mean-when-saying-gun-control/

    The chief medical examiner stated that each child’s body had from 3-11 wounds. Steve, list the number of mentally ill people you know that can throw that many knives or baseball bats in a short time frame. Your comment is an insult to the deceased, their families, and everyone with an ounce of common sense. You should be embarrassed, I honestly pity you. Climb into your bunker and cuddle up with your arsenal because you have no business in the general population, in fact, you appear to present at least the beginnings of mental illness with a comment like that. While I do not have any beef with responsible gun owners the time is well past due that an honest discourse takes place concerning automatic weapons and ammo intended to inflict maximum damage. Total overkill. To deny that is irresponsible. Re-read your post and take an honest look at yourself; no reasonable, sensible, honest, compassionate person would be proud of what you wrote.

    I have written a lot on this blog about guns and the way to control them. Instead of replying again with what can be found by a search under ‘gun control’ I will sum up with an answer in quick fashion, and let you read more if you wish on the blog.

    Limit the number of guns that can be sold in a time period, limit the amount of ammo that can be sold, but also limit the types of guns that can be manufactured, and do the same with ammo. No one is talking about ending hunting, but the cop-killer bullets and types of weapons that are designed to slaughter people are not the types that folks are taking out to the woods in Wisconsin to kill a deer. There is no reason that anyone needs to purchase or own the weapons that all too often are sold. I also have written about the ability to code ammo so to track who buys it. I also am very mindful that how guns are sold needs to be totally revamped and gun show sales closed. I also wants laws in place the would allow for those guns not locked in homes, but then obtained for a crime, would create a legal implication for the owner.

    These are the themes I want to see enacted for meaningful gun control.

    http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/publications/P4/P45368-10.pdf Look for homicides.

    And with 400,000 hunters in WI, homicides are negligible. Tell me more about how guns are the problem. The facts do not validate your opinion on the need for gun control.

    Let us recognize that a tragedy is a tragedy.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Wisconsin

    And which WI gun control laws are missing that would prevent tragedies?

    And how many guns would you think need to be removed in WI to prevent tragedies? All of them? Half of them? Justify your answer, please. And if its not the quantity of guns that is the problem, then what is it?
    Need help thinking about that? Perhaps this will help: http://www.wisconsinwatch.org/wisconsin-infolink-index/infolink-murders/

    All those guns in the hands of WI residents and so few homicdes and tragedies. Perhaps there is no link between the two.

    I grieve for the dead and their families in this tragedy but I do not think more gun control laws and less guns are the answer. Perhaps we need more ways out for those who think there are no ways out for them. They need solutions for their situations not more gun control.
    It is a tragedy,too, that those who commit these multiple murders have no way out other than violence, that they did not consider help, that the only solution was killing others rather than saving themselves. Sometimes we all need to just save ourselves from our situations. Sometimes we just need a way out.
    So perhaps we should focus less on the tools of tragedy and more on why other solutions were not utilized.

    We should steer all the deranged with weapons to the NRA convention….they have sold the American people a huge load of stinking, festering crap.

    Regarding Mr. Adams comment; knives & baseball bats kill one at a time. Automatic weapons are overkill and are not only owned and used by the mentally ill. How many dead children are too many before assault weapons are banned? The NRA is a lobby that encourages killing babies and you’re worried about them being a target when a massacre occurs? I think the NRA can fend for itself.

    This country needs to shut these places down, or more violence and trauma is going to take place. It is time to legalize taser weapons in this country, so that every citizen could shock the “living tar” out of a “terrorist”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think you are wrong, now and always, as you once again take advantage of this horrible event to jump on your anti gun bandwagon… …. It’s not the NRA that’s responsible. They are just the automatic targets every time a tragedy strikes..

    Until this country starts treating mental disease as a disease, and helping those people, the problem will be with us. Take away the guns, it will then be knives; take away knives it will then be baseball bats; take away the bats it will be gasoline…. and you are totally ignoring automobiles and alcohol…. Remember prohibition ?? How did that work for you ?… Repeat after me, “It’s mental illness that causes these tragedy’s !!!
    !”
