Why major media dropped Arapaho school shooting

Rate This Article

On December 13, 2013 Karl Pierson walked into Arapaho high school, shot one student and then killed himself.

Usually this would have been major news for weeks, with anti-gun advocates coming out of the woodwork like roaches. There should have been renewed calls for gun control with president Obama addressing the nation for the need for tighter restrictions and background checks.

So what makes this school shooting different?

The shooter used a shotgun.

The shooter legally bought the firearm.

Shooter was left leaning communist democrat

A good guy with a gun put a quick end to the violence.

Panic Buying December 2012

Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalistThis post is for the sake of prosperity, and for historical purposes. I feel that it is important to document what happened politically and in the shooting sports industry shortly after the Sandy Hook school shooting.

December 14, 2012 – Adam Peter Lanza fatally shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, and Stole 2 pistols and a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle. Adam Peter Lanza then drove to Newtown, Connecticut where he processed to enter the Sandy Hook Elementary School. After entering the school, Adam killed 26 people. The victims included twenty children and six adult staff members.

As emergency responders entered the building Adam killed himself.

The nation is shocked that anyone could inflict so much violence on children.

December 15 and 16, 2012 – News starts coming out that Adam suffered from Asperger’s syndrome, which is a form of autism.

Dianne Feinstein and Joe Lieberman vowed to introduce legislation to ban “assault weapons and high-capacity magazines”.

Cerberus Capital Management says they are going to sell Freedom Group, which is the owner of Bushmaster, as well as several other firearms companies. The news focuses on Cerberus Capital Management, Freedom Group and Bushmaster. There is no mention that Freedom Group also owns Remington, Marlin and several other brandnames.

In his speech at the December 16 vigil, Obama called for a renewed push for a better America, using “whatever power this office holds”.

Tragedy Brings Out The Stupids

Rate This Article

Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalistIn the debate about gun control, there is no lack of stupidity.

With the renewed call to outlaw, ban and/or restrict military style weapons, we need to keep something in mind.

The military does not buy enough M-4/M-16 rifles to keep the gun manufacturers in business. The civilian market is what keeps gun makers afloat.

Why should we care if a gun manufacturer goes out of business?

Who is going to make the firearms we need in times of war?

Sooner or later there is going to be another world war; do we want to run into a situation where our troops do not have access to the weapons they need?

Colt is currently the supplier of M-16/M-4 rifles to the military. In times of need the military could buy from any of the other AR-15 manufacturers on the market.

So lets just go ahead and drive firearms manufacturer out of business. Then lets whine and complain when our troops are using rifles left over from world war II.

What do just about all of the mass shooters for the past 20 years have in common? They were mentally ill.

It takes a mentally ill person to shoot children, so that should be a given. If these were sane rational people, they would have shot up congress.

Doesn’t it make sense to deal with the mental issues, instead of guns?

If society had some kind of social safety net, someplace where mentally ill people could be kept. Not a prison, not an insane asylum,,, something where mentally ill people could be kept safe, receive the treatment they need and protect society as a whole.

Lets treat the root issue of gun violence, and that issue is mental illness.

Dianne Feinstein To Introduce Assault Weapons Ban

Rate This Article

Obama won California during the election, and now Dianne Feinstein is going to introduce new gun control legislation.

“I’m going to introduce in the Senate, and the same bill will be introduced in the House — a bill to ban assault weapons,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession, not retroactively, but prospectively,” and ban the sale of clips of more than ten bullets, Feinstein said. “The purpose of this bill is to get… weapons of war off the streets.”

In other words, the many will have to pay for the crimes of the few.

I wish I would have bought a case of Russian made AK-47s back in the late 1980s when they were $75 each. They would be worth a small fortune right about now.

Its not the guns that are to blame, its the mentally ill shooters that are to blame.

Never underestimate the power of liberals in large groups. As they will try to exploit tragedies like the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting for their own gain.

But that is how socialist work, they will take the people when they are at their weakest, and try to push some kind of new law through congress. Now is not the time to talk about gun control. Give the people time to morn, then lets talk about the issues.

And the issue is not the guns, but how a mentally ill person could get into the school.

Its sad that our nation has come to this, that our children are not safe, that we have to worry about our safety wherever we go.
