Hey kids, feeling left out? Feel like no one knows your name?

Well, how about I tell you how to get your name, picture and all your personal details on every major newspaper across the US for WEEKS!


All you have to do is go off your meds for a week.

We can't win this, can we. Like was said in another thread, we're TRYING to put on a positive image about guns and gun safety, but we're shoveling **** up hill.

Bet it'll come out that one of the gunmen had an AR15 too. ****!

I'll bet the school had a severe NO GUNS policy and at least sent letters to the state to keep the ability to post NO GUNS signs too.

As long as any school remains a "Gun Free" zone, they will be the target of goblins! No gun law will change this fact! The only answer is take away all "Gun Free" zones. Today! Now!

Seems that way.

It's as if there is a secret government program that is creating killers and putting them into action so there will be gun confiscation.

Oops. That would be MK ULTRA. But that was shut down years ago...right?

Within THREE hours of the first reports coming out of Sandy Hook, the news programs propaganda outlets were already pushing the sheeple masses for more draconian gun control. Within 12 hours, they started lying to Americans as a whole while stating things like "the vast majority of people want...," or, "all America wants the POTUS/Congress to...," or "all across America, calls for..." and one of my personal favorites, "after the last few years, most Americans understand sensible gun restrictions which will help prevent this type of thing in the future."

Both the mass media propaganda outlets and POTUS himself lied to you by stating that a majority of Americans wanted more gun control measures. It was impossible to know that early after the event. But why did they report such blatant and obvious lies? Because some sheeple are so dependent on being part of the crowd and not thinking outside of the herd's mentality that regardless of how they honestly felt deep down, the constant drone and repetition of the propaganda caused them to either adopt the bias as their own, so as to avoid not being part of the herd, or they are already brainwashed to do and think just as their tv gods instruct them to do and think.


See, the mass media propaganda outlets (e.g., fox, abc, cbs, msnbc & cnn et al.) have practically absolute control over the dissemination of information. In fact, over 90% of the world's news station are owned by a mere five or six conglomerate corporations.

This means when they collectively decide to put forth a certain idea, agenda, or bias, they will only report on the stories which support that idea, agenda, or bias. They control the information and thereby can control or brainwash sheeple into thinking a way that benefits their endgame.

Think about it... how many times has the mass media not given a single line of ink, 30 seconds of air time, or a single paragraph on an internet site to the thousands of self-defense by gun events in this country every year? If more people knew the truth about gun ownership, and were not so easily led by what the TV says about gun control,

It is not about winning or losing due to events like this one and Sandy Hook, it is about the sphere of control the mass misinformation media propaganda outlets have over the initial reporting and down the line story development.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, "Information control, at best, is people control. "Information control, at worst, is brainwashing. Period."



This is not just my $0.02, this is fact.

I was listening to Fox news on Sirius on my way to work and they said there were several wounded and 2-3 dead.

They said SWAT was on scene and live photos showed several ambulances bringing in stretchers.

The link I posted was updated to list just 3 wounded... I pray it is more accurate than what they were saying on air...

No one dead, just wounded. There are reports that it started with 2 people fighting and the fight escalated to both people drawing guns and firing at each other.

That is actually good news. No one dead. Just two idiots playing Rambo with each other.

Not sure I'd agree with that. This will be more fodder for anti-gun folks no matter how it's chalked up.

It could be the worst news for pro-gun folks yet. They may be CHL holders. What then?

Ugh. So frustrating.

Fantastic how the media was ready to jump on it as another mass shooting. I heard this on CNN on my way back from lunch, they sounded almost excited to have another school shoting.

No way these poor boys deserve a 2nd chance and maybe 5 more after that. Lets feed them, house them, get them a degree then tell them it's their mommy's fault for not buying them that big screen TV for Christmas back in 2005

I know we're on the same team regarding gun control, but sometimes mommy and daddy still argue so here goes:

Enforcing laws doesn't stop crimes/problems. Since the dawn of humanity we have never been able to write or enforce a law that would prevent crime.

Every human on this planet knows murder and other violent crime is illegal. Swift, severe punishment/enforcement may reduce the murder rate but it will not "stop" murder. There will always be those whose hearts are so hardened that laws won't affect them.

So, we enforce laws to reduce or discourage crime, not to stop it. If someone wants to commit a crime, especially a premeditated crime, we can't stop it. Laws don't matter. At that point only an armed citizen can stop the criminal, hopefully before too much damage is done.
