As I lollygagged around the packed convention floor at the Eastman Gun Show in Gainesville, GA amid thousands of guns and what seemed like millions of bullets, it occurred to me that I've never heard of a mass shooting at a gun show.
This was on Saturday afternoon, a day after 20-year-old Adam Lanza went on a shooting spree that left twenty-eight dead. Lanza first murdered his mother at home, then drove to a local elementary school and blew away 20 children and six staff members before killing himself. He reportedly used guns that were legally registered to his mother after having been denied an application to obtain a rifle himself earlier in the week due to Connecticut's relatively strict gun laws.
Before all the blood had time to dry, pro-government zombie toady scribes were shrieking for more u201Cgun controlu201D and insisting that u201Csomethingu201D must be done NOW. They trotted out the tired meme that the u201Cgun lobbyu201D is very powerful and has a lot of money behind it – as if the government they dutifully worship doesn't have far more power and money than the NRA. One went so far as to proclaim that u201Cno person in the United States Of America should own a gun, unless they're a police officer or a soldier.u201D And of course, u201Cwhite menu201D were blamed, albeit by one white man after the next.
Protected on all sides by well-armed Secret Service members, Barack Obama's eyes grew misty as he proclaimed it was time to u201Ctake meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this.u201D New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg also screamed from behind his posse of armed bodyguards for more gun control. Taking time off from repeatedly authorizing billions in taxes to bomb the shit out of the Middle East, other politicians decried the USA's u201Cgun culture.u201D
The Soros shills at Think Progress, who never seemed to meet a white male they liked nor a government regulation they didn't like, hastily cobbled together u201CA Timeline Of Mass Shootings In The US Since Columbine.u201D
As always, anyone who writes for George Soros turns out to be – oh, what's the word? – instructive. Much can be learned merely from taking their list of spree killers and digging a little more deeply. In most cases, the following massacres occurred in so-called u201Cgun-free zonesu201D that gun-control advocates naively thought would help prevent gun violence rather than encourage it:
- An autopsy concluded that Columbine killer Eric Harris had the SSRI antidepressant Fluvoxamine in his bloodstream at the time of his death.
