It was sadly inevitable. Following the news about the shooting at Arapahoe High School in Colorado, lefties couldn’t wait to treat the NRA as if it had pulled the trigger:

Did all you FLEEBAGGERS forget that when all these mass shooters are confronted by someone with their own gun these mental midget shot themselves !!! Now take Lanza, the mall shooter earlier this year, the Sandy Hook shooter all shot themselves when they were confronted by someone with a gun !! Thats why I say if there were armed guards at this school this mental midget would have never brought a gun to begin with !!

      and ill blame my car if i get drunk at the bar and decide to drive home at 100 mph and slam into a family of 6! exact same logic!

      • http://www.facebook.com/annathule Annathule

        You can blame the bartenders – it’s the law in most states. If you (as a bartender or server) know a patron has drunk too much alcohol, you have to cut them off or the bar/restaurant can either get sued, lose their license by procedure of law, or both. BOTH the family of the drunk AND the family of anyone whom s/he hurts or kills can sue you, it’s not a one-sided game there. Lots to lose, bartenders and servers take that *most* seriously!

        However, point made, just very poorly. I still say suing Obamacare whenever anyone dies from a medical malady is the best example AND the best way to kill this stupid program. After all, if it wasn’t for Obamadon’tcare we’d still have the worlds best doctors and facilities that ppl from all over the world (w/ social medical systems) still flock to pay OUT OF POCKET to come and see. Much less, was once covered by these eeeeeeeeeviiiilllllllll insurance companies! Money grubbers they were too, such a shame… NOT!

    • Locutus O. Borg

      You could, but you’d sound like a total dumb ass for trying to make a false equivocation. Then again, in that pinhead of yours it all makes sense. Drawing false conclusions is what this page is about so talking sense to you would be a useless endeavor so let me ask you a question. How does Obamacare lead to deaths?

      • RblDiver

        Well, using the logic of the tweets linked in this thread, if the NRA caused the school shooting, then clearly Obamacare leads to deaths.

  • JC

    Typical of the left, the NRA did not kill ANY of these children, let’s not go after the actual shooter, let’s attack people that had nothing to do with it!!

    How about once, the left actually talks about bringing the actual killer to justice!? No, they’re just misunderstood and need more govt’ handouts. What a joke, the left truly makes me sick.

    • ObamaFail

      To liberals, the true victim is the killer, because they think the gun drove them to do it. They blame the NRA and Conservatives for shootings, because if they blamed the real cause, then they would have to focus on the real issues and stop with the anti-gun speeches.
      And if libs are so against guns, why don’t these gutter trash ever demand Chicago crack down on the thugs gunning people down daily there?

      • ICOYAR

        I can’t even come up with a reason why Leftists all think that gangbangers must be right-wing NRA members, without extreme contradictions and extreme lack of logic at all. It hurts my mind trying to comprehend their thought logic.

    • digitalPimple

      They’re fools and trained tools for politicians.

    • Cynthia Devens Orendorff

      too stupid to know what will happen to all of us if they take away our guns! Maybe they don’t know how to read? If they did….they could follow the history of the world and KNOW what happens when the citizens lose their liberties and God-given rights!

      • DaSarge

        They’re not taking anyone’s guns. Not mine, at least. Not without a real fight. And I suspect that’s true for most of us.

    • Gordon Lincoln

      Well – because maybe the people who actually were the predicate cause of the school shooting were the same people who want to blame the NRA? Why would they want to reexamine the ban on reasonable corporal punishment for children? Why would they want to reexamine their banning of religion (and the related ethical/moral training|) from schools? Why would liberals want to reexamine the nanny state policies that create economic conditions that lead to single-parent households, unwed mothers of a half dozen children – because each child brings in another chunk of welfare cash and Obama goodies? And all these children are being raised without adequate supervision, little to no discipline, and a really crappy socialist education that doesn’t even rank in the top 20 in ANY category now? NO – can’t be these things – it’s the evil NRA – the product of our liberal/socialist policies can’t be blamed.

      • Locutus O. Borg

        And somehow religion is going to stop school shootings. Excellent reasoning there. I bet you get on the band wagon claiming this is a “christian nation” while at the same marching to the jingoistic rhetoric of blowing up countries that have done nothing to us. You hypocrite. This is why people in the middle think you nut jobs on the right think you’re beyond help and should be left behind bars or sentenced to some godforsaken pit blocked off from the rest of humanity.

        • Gordon Lincoln

          Let’s see – out of a list of collaborative items that I suggested were contributing to the immaturity and irresponsibility – the tendency to throw tantrums if things don’t go a socialist’s way, up to and including shooting unarmed people, as in this instance?
          You selectively isolated one line item – the ethical moral training provided by religion? Then you start ranting about jingoistic rhetoric, blowing up countries and calling me a hypocrite? Let’s see name-calling – Do we have deflecting irrelevancies being introduced? Does the respondent reveal a hatred for Christianity? Do we have amazingly hostile aggressive desires expressed that dire events take place in my life because I don’t wish to partake of the socialist kool-aid?
          Congratulations – you revealed the true nature of the evil and angry spirit behind the façade of ‘pretending to care about others’, that lurks within the majority of socialists. The difference between the shooter and you is he acted out his rage in school while you content yourself with being hateful on the Internet.

    • Locutus O. Borg

      What makes me sick and the rest of everyone else is your ability to leap beyond the problem and blame the victims and their advocators. You seem to miss a complete step in logic so wasting time explaining it to you would seem futile. No one is saying to NOT go after the killer, but since this ass clown took himself out of the picture, then that’s a moot point now isn’t it?

      NRA – How sad. BUY MORE GUNS TO PROTECT YOURSELF! More guns for everyone!

  • bossmanham

    Ironic that what stopped the shooter was…a gun. His own even. lol

    • Paddy_O_Door

      That is a very sad irony. If he went to school with a bat, there would be a much different headline.

  • Agent Carmichael

    I thought all of the new Colorado gun control laws were supposed to prevent this? Since the shooter used a shotgun I guess those will be targeted next.

    • alanstorm

      Don’t try to inflict logic and reason on these people. That’s considered a “hate crime”.

    • Steve__Jacobson

      If he used a shotgun I wonder if he was influenced by Biden’s promoting the use of shotguns over AR-15’s and similar weapons?

      • ObamaFail

        Using the idiot liberal’s above’s logic, it’s Biden’s fault this happened because he was the one telling people to shoot through doors and to even guy shotguns.

      • bgdog1960 .

        Yes,this guy and the turd in DC bot used shotguns. Is it Bidens fault??

    • Laddyboy

      I would like to know if they were Democrates. Were they on drugs? Who can post the real information? True Americans do not wish harm on other people, only reluctantly upon criminals who break into their homes or businesses.

  • ObamaFail

    So when the shooter is revealed to be another bloodthirsty liberal like the last couple of shootings, will these scumbags demand liberals be killed? Or will they still blame the NRA when no NRA member was involved with this?

    • Laddyboy

      I asked for their affiliations to quick. Still want to know; ‘Were they on drugs?’

      Dylan Klebold was 17 when he died. How did he register as a Democrat if he wasn’t of legal voting age? I’m sure you’ll come up with a good explanation because you don’t just throw things around regardless of the truth now do you?

      • ICOYAR

        His parents were liberal Democrats who indoctrinated him into their ideologies. Klebold and Harris were both atheists who admired socialism.

        • plaingolf

          The post said they were all registered Democrats. Now is that true or not?

          • alanstorm

            Please substantiate your comment – if you can.

          • $19701396

            I already have. I went shooter by shooter.

    • Locutus O. Borg

      The idea that shooters are democrats is phony and gives a clue that where you got your information is about as relevant as you are.

      1. Nidal Hasan (the Ft. Hood shooter) lived in either Virginia (his
      state of residence prior to being sent to Ft. Hood) or Texas, neither of
      which has partisan registration. Therefore the claim that he was a
      “registered Democrat” is false. I do not know if he voted or how he
      voted, but I do know that unless he was registered in a state in which
      he did not reside, that the claim that he is a registered Democrat is FALSE.

      2. Since Virginia does not have partisan registration there is also
      no way to tell whether Seung-Hui Cho was a Democrat, but again because
      there is no partisan registration in the state we can say that the claim
      that he is a registered Democrat is FALSE. (Update: A more obvious point is that Cho was a resident alien, not a US citizen, so he was not eligible to vote in the US)

      3. The allegation that James Holmes was registered Democrat was based
      on a Breitbart blogger Joel B. Pollack, who found voter registration
      records for a DIFFERENT James Holmes who was about the same age. Alex
      Jones’ Infowars and other right-wing websites then dutifully repeated
      the lie without verifying it. It was later determined that the Colorado
      Theater Shooter James Holmes was NOT registered to vote, as evidenced by
      this retraction:
      {Newly-released information on the suspect’s birthdate (which, as
      indicated in our initial report, was a slight mismatch), combined with
      new details Breitbart News has obtained about the suspect’s likely
      addresses, together suggest that the suspect may, in fact, not have been
      registered to vote.}. However, most of right-wing media continued to
      promote the lie without printing Breitbart sites retraction. The claim
      that James Holmes was a registered Democrat is FALSE.

      4. The claim that Adama Lanza is a registered Democrat has been
      suggested based not on any evidence that he was registered as one, but
      on the rather dubious claim that because Connecticut has almost 2 to 1
      Democratic registration over Republicans, he was probably a Democrat.
      (Claim: “Adam Lanza, NewtownConn murderer. Registered Democrats
      outnumber Republicans by about a 2-1 ratio in Connecticut. The odds are
      therefore that the Lanza family are (sic) Democrats.”) This of course is
      a bogus argument to begin with, but even if we were to make the claim
      that a mass shooter’s political affiliation must be the same as the
      majority of the people in his area, we can debunk this foolish idea by
      taking this shoddy analysis down to the local level. Yes, Connecticut
      voted for Barack Obama, BUT the city of Newtown voted for Mitt Romney.
      If we look at the results we find that Mitt Romney defeated Barack
      Obama in Newtown by 7451-6784 votes or 51.7 percent to 47 percent.
      Republican Senate candidate and Tea Party favorite Linda McMahon carried
      the city over Democrat Chris Murphy by an even larger margin. Add in
      the other information we have that Lanza’s mother was a “doomsday
      prepper” and a home schooler in a Republican-leaning city and we can
      pretty well dispense with the erroneous assumption that Lanza must have
      been a Democrat (UPDATE: According to at least one media source,
      Nancy Lanza was a registered Republican. The source does not provide a
      link, but the author of this article is seeking further confirmation).
      We can therefore claim that with no evidence to support the claim, the
      assertion that Lanza was a Democrat is not demonstrated and that in the
      absence of any evidence it is likely FALSE.

      5. Klebold and Harris of course were not old enough to vote and they
      had no apparent political affiliation. Allegations that they came from
      families of Democrats or liberal progressives appear to have no sources
      to substantiate those claims. What little ideology the boys demonstrated
      owed mostly to an admiration for Timothy McVeigh
      not Ted Kennedy. Harris’ father was a retired Air Force pilot and Eric
      Harris wanted to join the Marine Corps. The boys lived in Littleton,
      Colorado a relatively conservative and affluent suburb of Denver. The
      claim that their parents were Democrats is UNSUBSTANTIATED. Any
      suggestion that the two boys were Democrats is demonstrably FALSE.

      Interestingly, Hedgecock and those on the far right have conveniently
      overlooked a number of cases where ideology is clearly right-wing. The
      acts below are instances of right-wing violence that are unequivocally
      committed by people who are openly hostile to liberalism. While this
      does not mean these killers are Republicans, it is quite clear that they
      are RIGHT-WINGERS and that they have far more in common with Mr.
      Hedgecock, Alex Jones and the other gun-toting conspiracy nuts on the
      right than with any evils associated with the Democratic Party or
      liberalism. In addition, to the list below is the obvious case of
      Timothy McVeigh, who I have not included because his crime was not
      committed with firearms. It was however, committed by a right-winger and
      the carnage was on a massive scale.

      For example, on July 18, 1984 James Oliver Huberty, who told his wife he hated “children, Mexicans and the United States”
      opened fire inside the McDonald’s Restaurant in San Ysidro, CA using a
      Browning P-35 Hi-Power 9mm pistol, Winchester 1200 pump-action 12-gauge
      shotgun, and an Israeli Military Industries 9mm Carbine (Uzi) – all
      legally acquired. He killed 21 and injured 19 before he was shot dead by
      police.

      On Aug. 10, 1999 White supremacist Buford O. Furrow,
      Jr., fired 70 rounds with an Uzi-type submachine-gun inside the lobby
      of the Jewish Community Center in Granada Hills, CA wounding three
      children, a teenage counselor and an office worker. He then carjacked a
      woman’s Toyota at gunpoint, dumped it behind a motel and murdered US
      Postal Worker Joseph Santos with a Glock 9mm handgun.

      On July 27, 2008 Former U.S. Army private, Jim David Atkinsson, who hated Democrats, liberals, African Americans and homosexuals,
      using a Remington Model 48 12-gauge shotgun, murdered two people and
      injured seven others inside the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist
      Church in Knoxville, TN.

      The day after Obama’s inauguration, white supremacist
      Keith Luke went on a killing spree in Brockton, Massachusetts. His goal
      was to kill as many Jews, blacks and Hispanics as possible. When
      questioned by investigators, the deranged gunman who had stockpiled
      hundreds of rounds of ammunition, proclaimed that he was fighting the
      extinction of the white race.

      A little over a month later, Donnie Baker, a former Republican campaign volunteer
      shot seven Chilean immigrants in Florida. Those who knew him said he
      was obsessed with the fear that illegal immigrants were taking over the
      country.

      In April of 2009, Richard Popalowski, a white supremacist
      in Pittsburgh, shot and killed three police officers following a
      domestic disturbance call. He apparently thought that Obama was part of a
      government conspiracy to seize all guns, and he feared the government
      would take his guns away.

      Later the same month, a Fort Walton Beach Florida man who thought the Obama administration was conspiring against him, shot and murdered two sheriff’s deputies.

      On May 31, 2009 Dr. George Tiller was murdered in his own church by a right-wing “pro- life” gun man who decided to express his belief in the sanctity of human life by executing a medical doctor.

      Eleven days later a right-wing white supremacist and Holocaust denier
      walked into the National Holocaust Museum and killed an
      African-American security guard. Two weeks later, three Neo-Nazis were
      arrested for bombing a diversity office in Scottsdale, Arizona.

      On April 20, 2010 a member of the Sovereign Citizen movement was arrested after a failed attempt to take over a Tennessee county courthouse.

      Exactly one month later, in West Memphis Arkansas, Sovereign citizens
      Jerry and Joe Kane murdered two police officers before they themselves
      were shot and killed in the ensuing shoot out with police.

      On July 18, 2010 Byron Williams, an angry unemployed man, was
      arrested by police after they discovered a car full of weapons and
      ammunition that he had planned to use to kill progressives. He was on his way to the non-profit Tides Foundation Center, a favorite target of vitriol from Glenn Beck’s radio show.

      On Jan. 8, 2011 22-year old Jarold Lee Laughner killed six people,
      including a judge and a nine-year old child, and wounded 13 others,
      including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), using a 9mm Glock 19 pistol during a public meeting in a supermarket parking lot near Tuscon, AZ.

      On Aug. 5, 2012 Wade Michael Page, a 40-year old white supremacist
      and U.S. Army veteran murdered six people and wounded four others
      inside a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, WI with a Springfield XD(M)
      semi-automatic pistol.

  • BoscoBolt

    The NRA has been leading the fight to have schools arm teachers and have armed security – no school should be a ‘GUN FREE ZONE’ – no student should be a sitting duck.

    • ObamaFail

      Libs will argue that putting up gun free zone signs totes works. Besides, anything that will actually prevent school shootings will not be tolerated by libs. Because if school shootings are ended without them getting to ban guns for law-abiding citizens, they don’t want to hear it. If school shootings stop, how will they get to convince people that we should ban guns.

      Libs don’t want school shootings to end, because they think a higher body count will help their cause of disarming the law-abiding citizens.

    • RblDiver

    • PaulS47

      Gun Free Zone is a misnomer; they’re defense free zones, for everyone but the shooter, who is provided with a free fire zone, until he runs out of ammo or someone—with a gun—shows up.

  • Steve__Jacobson

    Wonder if they’ve ever considered that by giving up their Second Amendment rights they are inviting more school shootings?

    • ObamaFail

      Libs are idiots, they think more gun laws will stop killers. They are foolish enough to believe that criminals will obey laws.

      • Laddyboy

        Gun laws are being passed to enable more CONTROL on the American People. NOT to stop the killings.
        When the law abiding have no guns, then only the outlaw will have guns. Look at England for the confication of their handguns.

    1 – 5 ….. which group senselessly murders 9000 Americans in the streets every year?
    1 – 5 ….. which group teaches gun safety and abhors gun violence?
    1 – 5 ….. which group/groups portray and present (for profit and public consumption) violent acts of street gun violence day after day after day?

    Last Question …… How many disingenuous, racist progs have viciously targeted the NRA w/o ever once considering going after the real sources of gun violence in this country ie unfettered liberal values, black democrats who kill and maim thousands of innocent victims every year and the game-makers and Hollywood film-makers who profit from and glamorize gun violence ad nauseum.

    Liberalism is a lie …. they can’t tell you the real reasons why they hate the constitution, Christians, capitalism, racial harmony and the NRA …. it’s because they don’t want to scare the American people until they feel they have a permanent one-party rule and it’s too late for America to wake up and do anything about it.

  • Michelle ✓classified

    Someone help me with the math here please, because it’s escaping me. According to what I’m seeing on my screen, the NRA posted that tweet three hours ago. According to all the news I’m seeing about the shooting, it was reported at 5:00 p.m. Eastern, which would make it an hour ago in my timezone. How can Twitter display that a tweet was posted “three hours ago” (which would be noon for me) and yet these imbeciles are saying it was posted AFTER the shooting was reported (which was 2:00 p.m. for me). Help me understand what I’m not understanding.

    • Jarhead83

      According to a Foxnews.com report, the shooter entered the school at approximately 12:33 p.m. (MST), which would be 2:33 EST.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        When the shooter entered the school is not the same time the media reported the situation, all outlets I’m looking at are making it clear the first reports went out at later than that. CNN claims the original report went out at 5:00 p.m. EST. My own local paper first reported at 12:30 PST. None of these time references are before Noon PST when the NRA posted that tweet. And even if it narrows down to the NRA posted that tweet within the same hour the shooting was reported, whose to say they didn’t have it on a scheduled release of the tweet? What I’m getting at is, it is beyond ridiculous to be slamming the NRA for that tweet.

    • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Sorry M, I cant help you, I suck at the time zone thing, but I dont remember reading that twitter is timestamped to any particular time zone…… Looking at my T/L, they are date stamped but not time stamped.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        On my T/L it shows how long ago (by hours) a tweet was posted on the current date. It showed me the NRA posted that tweet “3 hours ago” (when I posted my question) which was noon for me at the time, First reports of the shooting were at 5:00 p.m. EST, that made it 2:00 p.m. PST for me). I totally suck at math, but the best I can figure, the NRA post was BEFORE the shooting was reported in the media.

        • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          Yea, mine is the same. After 24 hours it just shows the date.

          Lets see you guys are 4 hours behind us, then add 2 hours for each time zone… I get confused now, used to know all that by heart. East coast is six hours behind west coast?
          Nuts. I remember seeing the tweet in my T/L before the shooting preliminary reports started showing up on the TV news, but I wasn’t paying close attention until after the reports.

          That probably doesn’t help at all.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            Oh woman, you are all outta whack! West coast is behind East coast by three hours. Hawaii is behind East coast by six hours, three hours behind West coast. All states are on standard time now (it differs only when daylight saving comes, 3-4 states don’t observe it). But yes, it appears by what I can figure out that tweet from the NRA came before reports of the shooting, so all those who are slamming the NRA for being insensitive only look like total tools.

          • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            LOL, I told ya I was of no use on time zones! We dont do the daylight savings crap over here and since folks cant seem to bother about time zones when the call us at ungodly wee hours of the morning, Ive really blocked it all out I guess. Thanks for the refresher tho.

            Timezones not withstanding, I think your right about the timing of the NRA tweet.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            I hear ya on the timezone obnoxiousness. I work (from home) for a company based in Delaware. I pitch a fit when they schedule conference calls with me for 9:00 a.m. their time. Um hello? That’s 6:00 a.m. for me. Love you guys really I do, but I wouldn’t get up before 7:00 a.m. for my Fairy Godmother. And when I lived in Boston and worked in oil trading (more accurately importing), I worked with PDVSA (Venezuela’s state-run oil company) and never, ever could remember the time zone they’re in. Ugh – and also when I moved to Boston, my lifelong friends who were used to me being in the same timezone all our lives would call me at midnight EST, 9:00 p.m. for them, forgetting about the time zones. They did it all the time and I couldn’t turn my phone off at night in case a call from Venezuela about a loading problem came in….just more reasons I’m glad I’m back in CA – no more middle of the night calls from CA or Venezuela!

            Yeah, although I suck at math, I’m pretty sure I’m in the ballpark when I say that tweet from the NRA was made before the shooting news was reported. But you know how it goes, to the Left – f*ck reality, we have an agenda!

    Colorado has today, and has had for years, some of the strictest gun restriction and bans in the country. Years and years…..
    The NRA does not control Colorado. Governor – Democrat. Assembly-Democrat. Voted for Obama as a State majority in 2008 and 2012. Lots Californians moved to Colorado the past 20+ years….. It is at best a blue-ish, slightly purple state……w/ a few red dots here & there. Pot laws, that’s todays Colorado.
    This kid was not an outcast, he was involved in campus activities. He had friends. He had parents who liked him, divorced and together. He had a house to live in.
    Now, we’ll get the bully stories, the sad stories, etc.
    Instead of blaming the NRA…..let’s put a finger on (1) violent video games, (2) violent music, (3) Hollywood violent products aimed at teenagers w/ disposable income, (4) lax school rules, (5) poor school security, (6) mental illness, (7) public schools unable to deal w/ mental illness re: academic attendance and programs.

    The Progressives with their “gun free zone” designation for public buildings and schools are the cause of this and all the other school shootings. There are several states where the law allows teachers who have concealed weapon permits to carry their guns at school. Those states have no school shootings. Libtards will never admit that.

    So. The NRA shot up another school, did they? NO! It was the GUNS that shot up the school. Just like it was the computers that people trying to get onto Obamacare were using that caused the HHS computer system in DC to crash completely, thus keeping nearly the entire country from getting on Obamacare. Just like it’s the fault of all those doctors who are going out of business rather than be forced to accept a lack of ability to treat a patient the way that THEY see fit to treat them… silly doctors, why who do they think THEY are seeking to make any medical decisions? Why, Kathleen Sebelius will do all the thinking for the doctors now. Just ask Obama. Or Harry Reid. Or Diane Feinstein. Oh, I forgot. Diane is busy crafting new laws to disarm the right wing nuts so they cannot defend themselves or their families or their own homes. Silly right wing nuts; we have the police for that, protecting us, I mean! Just ask Mayor Mike in New York City. He will tell you all you need to know, including why we need to be forbidden to get an extra large cold drink, or have a smoke inside our own cars, and anything you want to know about all these automatic weapons that all these NRA members all own, not to mention those poor, poor Boston Bomber Brothers. The terrible treatment they got at the hands of the Boston Police Dept. Why wasn’t the Boston PD out keeping all the citizens of Boston safe that day? Killing those poor boys, just because they hated America and set off a couple of explosive IEDS in Boston…

    Another active shooting. This one coming on the 1st yr anniversary of Sandy Hook active shooting. I see the active shooter is a white guy named Karl Pierson.

He just followed Adam Lanza,who followed Anders Brevik,James Holmes Dylan Klebold Eric Harris etc.Thankfully his act of terrorism is over.

        Whatever you say about gun violence in Chicago is correct. You won’t get an argument from me. However what Karl Pierson did is not just 5 shooters over decades. When I speak of active shootings, I’m speaking of a 47 or 50 yr pattern.

    Citizens, the answer to this is so simple. There are armed guards everywhere, the Capitol Bldg, Banks, Brinks Trucks, courthouses, grocery stores. Look at the thousands of police, ATF, FBI who respond to these shootings and stay for days, weeks, Where I live, there are policemen in every school, every day. All day. You mean to tell me that there are not enough police, sheriffs, that can be pulled off writing traffic tickets, placed on guard at the entrance of each school, with only one entrance open for entry? These shootings would stop immediately. We do not object to their protection in all other places. Makes one wonder if the ruling powers really wants them to stop. Have we become that sinister in the manipulation of public opinion???

What about all the ILLEGALS hauling over the border? How about all the police who won’t touch them or the black gangs, or the idiots who cold conk people for fun, or beat old people to death and brag about it?
