Media, Left Quick to Blame Conservatives for Colorado Tragedy

By Bobby Eberle

The chaos has not even begun to subside from the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, and already the media and leftwing radicals are trying to place blame on conservatives. It's absolutely disgusting as reports have come out trying to blame Rush Limbaugh, conservatives, and even the Tea Party movement for the actions of one very twisted and evil individual.

First... here's a little background, and please keep in mind that this story is developing every moment. As reported by Fox News, "Police and FBI are questioning the suspected gunman in a shooting early Friday at a crowded midnight screening of the new Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises," in Aurora, Colo., that left 12 people dead and at least 50 wounded -- the deadliest U.S. shooting since the Fort Hood massacre in 2009."

The suspect, identified by federal law enforcement officials as James Holmes, 24, is in police custody. Police said Holmes' apartment is booby trapped, leading authorities to evacuate five surrounding buildings. Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said bomb technicians are determining how to disarm flammable or explosive material in the third-floor apartment. He says police could be there some time.

Oates says pictures from inside the apartment are fairly disturbing and the devices look to be sophisticated. FBI agents and police used a hook and ladder fire truck and put a camera at the end of 12-foot pole inside Holmes' apartment, which is about four miles from the theater.

KUSA-TV reports that Holmes kicked down an emergency door at the theater, threw in some type of a smoke bomb and began shooting when moviegoers started to run. The bodies of the 10 people who died at the theater remain at the scene early Friday while police continue to investigate, the Denver Post reports. Sources told Fox News that at least 3 military service members from Buckley Air Force Base were among those injured.

It's a very sad situation. I feel so badly for all the victims and families involved. But what I can't understand is why leftwing nut jobs insist on trying to assess blame or associations when they have absolutely no facts. Why can't this person -- in this case James Holmes -- just be a psycho? Why does the left insist on trying to make him a rightwing psycho?

As reported on HotAir.com, leftwing tweeters began going after Limbaugh regarding statements he made regarding the new Batman movie:

Rush's statement does not leave room for the kind of accusations these Twitter users are making. While a few no-name people accusing Rush of being responsible for this shooting is a big eye-roller, this could easily lead to the kind of widespread slander and libel leveled against Sarah Palin after the Giffords shooting. A quick Google search brings up a blog already talking about it, and a comment below a Huffington Post article discussing the alleged correlation.

Then, we have the completely despicable act by ABC News. With now proof at all, ABC News within hours of the story breaking, tried to link the alleged shooter to the Tea Party movement.

So... Brian Ross flat out states that ABC doesn't know if the guy on the web site is the alleged shooter... but I guess it's ok to report the "possible" link anyway, right? This is just outrageous!

The outrage quickly made it up the ABC News chain of command, as they came out with this retraction:

An earlier ABC News broadcast report suggested that a Jim Holmes of a Colorado Tea Party organization might be the suspect, but that report was incorrect. ABC News and Brian Ross apologize for the mistake, and for disseminating that information before it was properly vetted.

Before it was properly vetted? They "reported" on pure speculation, and they knew it was pure speculation. It's just pathetic what some of these so-called news outlets have become.

    These blamers have a very good ‘role model’ to follow; Mr. Oblamer-in-Chief. I’m amazed that Bush was not among those blamed; he’s [in their opinion] responsible for everything else. The ‘left’ will never claim responsibility for anything unless it’s of the ‘golden’ variety. I’m glad that when Ozero is voted out of office in November they can associate that with me and blame me.
    We have had some heavy ‘crazies’ in this country; usually when it is all figured out: the loonies were of the ‘liberal earmark’ variety.

      This just goes on to prove how disgusting the Lamestream Media is! The #1 hope & wish for the liberals is to somehow, some way, be able to tie ANYTHING horrendous, criminal, terroristic or just plain BAD to a movement that they FEAR more than anything else … The Tea Party. They realize that they cannot continue their demonistic plans to turn this once great country into another Third-World Cesspool unless the Tea Party is somehow knocked out of existence. It would be the Progressive Democrats literal Wet Dream if they could somehow succeed in doing so …

      That they do these crazy things clearly removes them from the category of “conservative.”
      People are labeled liberal or conservative by what they do, not by the group they join, the clothes they wear or the area they come from. What they do.
      And when someone does something like this, obviously they are not conservative. It goes against every definition of “conservative” and since there are just two categories…that leaves the all-embracing, accepting-every deviancy, revel-in-your-uniqueness and deficiency LIBERAL category.

      YOURWORSTNIGHTWARE,
      Then obviously you haven’t listened to ABC’s Good Morning America or Fox’s America Newsroom. George Stephanolpolous and Brian Ross blamed the TEA Party while Fox News was saying the man had to be military because he had too much equipment.

      yourworstnightmare, in a discussion with George Stephanopolus on ABC’s Good Morning America show ABC News reporter Brian Ross said that James Holmes the shooter was likely a member of the CO Tea Party. He based this on the fact that a man by the same name is in fact a TP member. But Ross and Stephanopolous got the wrong person.

      In addition, in OpEdNews, a far Left site run by Rob Kall, Martha Rosenberg blames the NRA in an article at http://www.opednews.com/articles/Thank-You-NRA-by-Martha-Rosenberg-120721-437.html

      So it seems that the Left has a habit of blaming domestic terrorist incidents on the Right. Therefore it’s only fair to look at a few significant events.

      If you recall, the Leftist MSM with people like OpEdNews, SPLC, Olbermann, Krugman blamed Palin, Beck, Limbaugh and conservatives for the Rep. Giffords shooting, some also claiming Jared Loughner was a right-winger. It turned out Loughner is a leftist. In addition, much of the Left omits the fact a conservative Republican federal judge was assassinated in that shooting.

      Then there was the case of an individual crashing a plane into an IRS building in Austin, TX that the progressive media, including the DailyKos and the Washington Post, lept to align with the TP movement, describing him as right-wing, racist, anti-tax, patriot, or militia. However, it turned out that the pilot Joseph Stack was a frustrated leftist angry that the government under Obama hadn’t gone far enough to the left.

      Lastly, there was the 2010 the assassination attempt by Casey Brezik against MO Gov. Jay Nixon. In this case since the facts were known the progressive MSM ignored the incident. You see, Brezik was a known anti-Christian, anti-capitalist leftist who had participated in a number of leftwing protests.

      Now you can deny all of this if you want claiming it’s all just “pre-emptive denial.” However, with regard to ABC, it’s my hope that TP member James Holmes doesn’t accept ABC’s apology but rather takes them to court for libel and in addition to significant monetary damage asks that both Ross and Stephanopolus be fired.

      By the way, it’s also my opinion, as yet unsubstantiated, that when they finish investigating the shooter James Holmes it will turn out that he’s likely a liberal, progressive, and/or Democrat.

    Obama “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,”

    By Obama’s thinking the Colorado Batman movie killer James Holmes taking a doctorate program in neuroscience at the University of Colorado Denver should be able to claim that someone else made that happen and he did not do the killing it was his great government teachers, roads, and bridges.

      Some one helped to make the system that allows people like Obama to be president.
      He didn’t do it on his own.
      The blame for what he does needs to be laid where it belongs; at the feet of the liberal.

      The founding fathers, who made the system, never imagined, even in their worst dreams that the system would produce people like “yourworstnightmare.” The epitome of what is wrong with America; liberals voting favorite position (prone and begging) into office.

      joereinhart, actually the Founders and Framers did imagine people like “yourworstnightmare.” They didn’t believe that people were basically good, but realized people were fallen. That’s why they formed a system of checks and balances. We’ve failed to follow that system as outlined in the Constitution. Now we’ve “earned” people like Mr. Obama.

      I am not so sure I agree with your entire reasoning, even though I do understand what you are saying. First, I am not objecting to your statement, concerning the founding fathers, foreseeing the eventual rise of detractors to the nation and the Constitution.
      I object to the part about “we have earned” people like Obama.
      I vote as a man. Or even, as a man in a political party. But the man in office is not the man I voted for. The implication that I and people like me deserve to be governed by people I/we didn’t support, that we “earned him,” implies a control over elections and fate that no man has.
      I caste my vote and I failed. People like me failed to win the majority.
      Short of breaking the very laws of my nation, and the principles for which America and I stand…what is a man to do? What check or balance can I legally employ that will make liberals understand they are wrong wrong wrong?
      No, I disagree that it is my failure; I lay the blame where it belongs; at the feet of the liberal faction that has, like an intelligent fungus, taken over my country.

      joereinhart, I take a Biblical view to history and politics. So when I say we “earned” I’m referring to a collective we who have failed to defend what the Founders intended. As the Bible points out when many in a nation forsake good principles a lot of innocent and even concerned people suffer. So please don’t take what I wrote about failure in a personal sense.

      We need to do two things, Most importantly we need to get our own act together. I’m referring to the church as the Scriptures say that if we who are called by His name repent and seek Him He will heal our nation.

      Secondly, we conservatives and libertarians who believe in a constitutional Republic must do a far better job of educating all Americans why the Founders and Framers wrote the Constitution as it is with its checks and balances.

      As I see it, the liberal, as you well put it, fungus gained ascendancy while too many, not all, of us were asleep at the wheel. Again, please don’t take this as a personal accusation of you. It seems you’re one of the ones who want to be a Paul Revere or Thomas Paine. We need people like you willing to speak out.

Their shameful abuse of journalistic standards makes even the coverage of football and other sports suspect. They have demonstrated a violent rejection of the ethics of their craft, and should be rejected by everyone with a sense of fairness and journalistic cant.

    Please keep the families and friends of those who were shot in Colorado in your prayers.

    I have never owned a gun, but guns do not murder … criminals do. There will be renewed calls for gun bans, but it is not in our nation’s best interest to ban guns. My father, like most American teens of his generation, had loaded rifles in their homes, but they never shot anyone. Their guns were just tools.

    Although guns are used by criminals, they also prevent the government from forcing us to submit to dictatorship, and they allow good citizens to protect themselves from criminals. Guns are neither a good thing nor a bad thing. They are very powerful tools which should only be used responsibly. Communication and guns will have to be controlled to establish a dictatorship.

    As I look back at the men who founded our republican democracy, I marvel at their wisdom in all areas not just this one. They were God-fearing men who prayed for guidance and expressed their willingness to suffer or die for the liberties that we enjoy. They erred when they didn’t allow women and black people to enjoy all of the same liberties, but the beauty of our system is its ability to improve.

    Some feel it’s wrong for a citizen to own a military assault rifle, but the one-world government is coming. I use prayer as my tool to resist the certainty of this event, but guns are a necessary tool in this endeavor also. Our only hope is to slow it down because God said it is inevitable. I will not resist God, but the coming government is devilish not godly, and I do want to enjoy liberty as long as possible.

      The first insinuation was that this shooter was so organized that he must have had military experience because he owned too many guns, was a good shot, had smoke canisters, etc. The Pentagon had to assure the media that he had NO military record. Accusing the TEA Party or the military leads back to Janet Napolitano’s release to law enforcement a couple of years ago that veterans should be viewed as “domestic terrorists”.

      The fact that Obama immediately ended his campaigning in Florida early and returned to the White House to address this issue tells me he is determined to use this incident for all the media hype against the second amendment that he can possibly squeeze from it.

      Hmmm. There are honest politicians.
      To blame them all seems like a liberal mantra, “Ours are dirty, but they ALL are!” when in fact they aren’t.
      We see the same thing when people with no discernment ability or capacity to understand differentiation say, “Romney is the same as Obama!”
      They are hardly the same genus, much less specie!
      I would be better off, and so would you, with a politician that only lies, say 5% of the time than one who lies 10% of the time.
      Or in Obama’s case, 80% of the time.
      No one lies all the time and no one tells the truth all the time. It is the relationship between what they lie about and the goals they attempt that has meaning, and “always telling the truth” can have drawbacks.
      I would be very happy to have my political representatives lie to/for me, if the lie furthered my country’s best interests.
      Would a smart man tell the truth to his enemy, if the lie would be used against him? To destroy his soldiers, his economy, his kid’s future? That would not be smart at all.

    I was going to see this movie Sunday. I’ve heard that the speeches that the villain Bane gives in this movie sounds like the Obama campaign speeches. It’s all class warfare against the rich so he’s taken from them to give to himself. He’s like an OWS person. I also agree with a few other comments. Who takes a six year old and a three month old baby to the theater at midnight? They should be home in bed at that hour. Don’t tell me they coudn’t get a sitter. If that’s the case stay home then.

    Also since the left loves blaming Bush for 9/11 saying it’s an inside job then we should say maybe Holder gave this guy the guns from fast and furious to make Obama look good while his ratings are falling.Hmmmm. co-incidence? Just asking.

    The movie theater killer is actually a member of Black Bloc, a small and violent Anarchist faction of The Occupy Wall Street movement (OWS). The Batman movie portrays OWS types in a negative way, and the villain himself (named Bane, ironically enough) is actually an OWS type, too. The theater killer came dressed in typical Black Bloc attire but with one addition – as the Joker, the enemy of Batman (who obviously in the film is the nemesis of the OWS-type villain). Will you hear all about this from the mainstream media, the media that first claimed the murderer might be a Tea Party member!? Doubtful. They’ll tell you this was senseless and they have no idea why he did it.
    You can read more about this far leftist movement here:

      From what I’ve heard from the MSM all the recent terrorist plots have been from the Tea Party movement, at least if one believes the MSM and Democrat politicians.

      However, many will vote for Obama because they’re concerned about continuing to receive their government benefits. Aren’t almost 50% of the people receiving government benefits?

    The Socialist driven “mainstream” media propels themselves farther out of the mainstream (if they were ever truly in it), every time they pull one of these travesties. It has been reliably reported that by even a cursory scan, there are more than 2100 individuals by this name in the United States, listed in various phone books. Yet when this happens, they start canvassing for anyone of that same name who may be connected with freedom loving groups or individuals that they don’t like, so that they can begin manufacturing their low life insinuations for the American public.

    The rule of thumb is, say it first, loudest, longest and nastiest and that’s what people will remember as “fact”. The fact that they turned out to be lying is noticed by very few. They just can’t figure out, tho, why they are losing Market share at such an alarming rate. When was the last time you saw a liberal big city newspaper that could afford to stay with the full sized news sheet format? TV, radio and print media companies are failing like flies at the north pole, but they just can’t believe that it’s due to their so obviously biased “reporting”.

    The two part plan now is to just let them die a natural financial death. The only Caveat is that we need to get rid of Obuslim and all his Socialist friends quickly, before he can arrange a taxpayer bailout for all the liberal media who are dying at their own hands.

    The very thing they are trying to do, is make it look bad that people have guns, when that could not be farther from the truth.

    In our defense who do have arms, and permits to carry them, if one of us had been in that theatre, there would have been considerably less carnage, because we would have put his butt down before he could have counted so high in his obvious attempt to take out as many as possible. We are actually the good guys, or we could not be permitted to carry.
    The likes of this maniac can in no way reflect upon those Citizens who carry weapons legally. People of bad intent can, and will always, be able to buy arms on the black market.
    The only thing laws to remove Citizens weapons would do, is lay us bare to whomever of the criminal element would choose to do us harm.

    A unarmed Citizen is a defenseless target to those who would see fit to do us harm. Taking our guns away would be like the USA completely banning all weapons, from our Military, and our Citizens, then sending a memo to all other Countries that we are now unarmed, so please come and sit down to a meeting which requests that you all do the same..
    All that action would do is leave us at the mercy of any Country, person, people, or groups who wished to take us down.
    The bad guys would still have weapons. Ever try bringing stones to a gunfight at one hundred paces. Unarmed Citizens are only sheep, in a valley of wolves, who could never ever be safe and not fearing for their lives.

    I haven’t seen any of the Batman movies, of which this is, I believe, the third. However, it’s my understanding from things I’ve read–reviews, etc., that all three depict mass murder in some sort of gathering place, and that’s not the only similarity between the violent scenes in the movies and this tragedy. The media will absolutely not make the connection, guaranteed. Nor will Obama, because he won’t want to offend his big Hollywood donors. It’s the evil right’s fault, or perhaps the fault of the guns, which should be banned.

    well my fellow citizens, Hollywood is offering America a steady dose of an increasingly sadistic and uncivilized “way of life”. Soft brains which have developed no criteria at all-look up criteria if you have questions – this country has changed to the point of being unrecognizable if you have lived long enough – for those of you who have not been taught anything about your country,i.e. the history of this one of a kind nation the United States of America, are most unfortunate – you have nothing to compare the rest of the world to..those who hate their own country still do not want to live anywhere else but they don’t recognize why, really why. They are deaf and dumb.. the freedoms we have here are being misused and denigrated at the expense of not only others but themselves..I have noticed with regularity that there are fine threads spreading like tentacles throughout our country down to the small towns and villages, putting down and stepping on God and Good in many insidious ways.. there is a spiritual sense to life and most people recognize this ..The fight has become Devil and Evil vs God and Good . One has to be dead to not know this. Since this man took over the WH there are new and many things that shouldn’t be happening to us, that are happening on a daily basis. Wrong things. Bad things. There has to be a turnaround at some point or America will not live. And it is so simple. God lives and He has given us a conscience. We know the difference between right and wrong and many of us are invalids when it comes to choosing ..it takes a real man to decide on right and it takes a real woman to decide on right. I am convinced that the only option we have is to get down on our knees and pray for God to help us. Getting on your knees? What’s the matter with that? you would do that if your life was in imminent danger of disappearing .. THINK

Clinton ordered the FBI investigation into a possible 3rd suspect of Middle Eastern appearance stopped. I wonder if that was due to the earlier WTC 1st bombing. Could a further investigation have prevented 911? We’ll never know as Sandy Berger, Clinton’s National Security Advisor stole and destroyed Top Secret documents from the National Archives.

      It sounds so bad but I’m convinced it is real. Look how quick the media tried to connect this guy to the Tea Party. Before the end of the month, the media will make this look like the Republicans are to blame and the O’boy is the only answer to world peace. Look at the OKC bombing in 1995.

      He would have gone down hard and gone down fast.

      Too bad a guy can’t very well conceal a .306 rifle because a Class 3 bulletproof vest is designed to defeat a handgun, including the powerful .44 Magnum, but it will not stop a .306 bullet (or any other comparable rifle bullet).

    Watch Out America! We all know that Obama has done numerous tap dances around Congress, along with ignoring Supreme Court rulings. Do Not put it past Herr BO to issue another Executive Order because of this “Emergency.” Not just banning assault weapons, but gutting the entire 2nd Amendment.

      I urge you to write a – letter – to your Congressman re the abuses of Executive Powers by this POTUS.

      Yes, I know it is a quaint idea to actually put words on paper, address an envelope (add to outside of envelope, ‘Personal Congressman X’, put paper in envelope, buy and affix a stamp (how much IS a stamp these days?), put it in a mailbox and then wait DAYS for delivery.

      The bean counters have concluded that one (1) – letter – is equal to 1,000 voters.

      They also concluded that individual EMAILS (except those coordinated through a certified agent, i.e., NUMBERSUSA) are just ‘background noise’ and routinely ignored.

      I sent many emails and got pabulum, canned replies.

      In frustration I finally sent a LETTER and actually got a (email) reply – from the Senator!

      So if you want to do something, other than grumble to each other … go LOW TECH and write … letters.

      You make a good point. Should Obama sign the UN treaty on small arms and the Senate not pass it, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Mr. Obama to use an EO or executive agency to try and implement it by fiat.

    That’s all the Obama-media needs to do; plant a seed of doubt with the mush-minded voters that will vote for O. The information these “journalists” spew need not be accurate or fact, when during their man’s election campaign; just enough to sway the population. The real problem? IT’S WORKING! Most polls ad surveys have the low-life in the W.H. ahead. And add that we’re outnumbered, it makes for a bleak outlook for Romney. I want to br wrong, but I don’t think I will be.

    If anybody is to blame its Obama and his administration. They probably staged this massacre to give them leverage with the Arms Trade Treaty with the UN to get rid of the Second Amendment. Holmes could’ve never carried this out on his own. First of all he is unemployed, where did he get the money to pay for all this tactical equipment; its in the thousands. He had to have help and thats where the government comes in.

      I believe it’s unfair to accuse any political group of staging this tragedy. It’s my firm opinion, and I mean just opinion, that Holmes acted out of his own warped beliefs on his own, which when investigated will likely show a left leaning bias. Also, remember he had been attending graduate school for a while so he might have used money from loans for guns rather than for books.

      That said, I agree with your implication that this administration and “liberals” will do all they can to further their agenda of disarming American Patriots. To them it’s more important than disarming hoodlums in Chicago or drug cartel gangs. Those groups might be the basis for what Mr. Obama said in his remarks, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” Surely groups lie SEIU and ACORN will be represented.

      However, consider the remarks of Justice Joseph Story, appointed to the SC by Constitution’s principal author, James Madison, in his Commentaries on the Constitution of the US

      “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of the rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”

      Without the ability to defend the Constitution, particularly the Bill of Rights, we might as well not have a Constitution, or a Republic for that matter.

      Recce1, I disagree with your opinion in that he planned this attack on his own. It’s not at all unfair, as you say, especially when you look at the information available. It was reported that his house was booby-trapped quite elaborately and it was impossible for one person to do it alone, let alone one not in his right mind. I think he had help and who else but the government would go to such extent to enhance their agenda. The FBI has been known to concoct plots, carry them through and then come to the rescue. I sincerely think the current government had something to do with it. Obama will go to lengths to get what he wants. And for Harry Reid to quickly jump on the bandwagon and accuse the Republicans of being responsible, conveniently ties together.

      You may be right that he might have used student loans, however, there is no evidence he did, at least not yet. We’ll have to wait and see. And if you think the government will ever admit to being involved in this tragedy, you’ve got another thing coming…

      First off, a lot isn’t known to the public about how his apartment was rigged, although it could well have been done one one person. Also, please don’t forget that being mentally ill doesn’t mean being mentally incapacitated.

      If you insist that Obama was behind this then you must also believe it’s ok to insist that Bush was behind 911. Is that it? I really believe both sides have got to stop the dissemination of unfounded conspiracy theories. It’s poisoning any hope of cooperation.

      Nevertheless, when all is said and done, I think we’ll find that Holmes leaned to the Left.

      By the way, I’m sure the Democrat/Chicago Mob machine has a ton of pre-canned scenarios to blame anything and everything on conservatives and Republicans. It’s already known that Ross when he heard of the incident he immediately went to the web to try to link the Tea Party with Holmes. For Ross it was reflexive. That is why we should demand he be fired.

      Joereinhart, I’m saying there’s no evidence to point to the Obama administration and it does no good to engage in unsupported speculations. Let’s wait for further investigation of the incident.

      The wild speculation were a Leftist pastime during the Bush administration. Some speculated Bush used HAARP technology to cause hurricanes including Katrina and earthquakes. The fact is HAARP is a reality. Some believe Bush also caused the Indonesian tsunami and stole 3 elections including 1 in Mexico. They said Bush had a couple of Democrats murdered by sabotaging their aircraft. Personally I don’t believe any of those accusations are true.

      However, please state where and when you believe that the Obama administration has engaged in similar conduct. What concerns more me about Obama are the records he hasn’t released such as his college records. Also I believe no independent source has seen the original long form Hawaiian birth certificate. But that’s for another forum.

      If you go back to Clinton I do have a few suspicions. Who killed Vince Foster? Why did a US aircraft with Sec. Brown hit a mountain? Why did so many FOBs (Friends of Bill) die under mysterious circumstances? Why wasn’t Clinton impeached for treason?

      In any event, both Republican and Democrat administrations have far more in common that abortion and tarot-card readings. Government by its very nature is force. That’s why the Framers in their wisdom established a system of checks and balances. We need to reestablish that if the Republic is to survive. And as I said, we need Thomas Paines, so keep your powder dry and your eyes and ears open fellow patriot.

    A point we should all remember when confronted by leftist anti-2nd Amendment zealots is that the shooter didn’t use an ASSAULT or AUTOMATIC military weapon. The AR-15 is a SEMI-automatic assault LOOKING weapon and the pistol is a SEMI-automatic. Neither are military weapons.

    Don’t let Leftists tell you that people shouldn’t be allowed to own AUTOMATIC ASSAULT weapons since as a general rule people already can’t own such weapons as the cost is prohibitive and the licensing requirements are stringent. Therefore their claim isn’t germane to the incident at all. Also, private citizens can’t own any automatic weapons made after 1986.

    Just because a gun like an AR-15 is intimidating looking to a liberal is no reason to ban it. Actually it’s a great reason to own such a weapon.

      My rule (based on the 2nd amendment) is that I should be allowed to carry anything anywhere that a cop or soldier carries. I only obey the disagreeable gun laws that are enforced to a degree that makes violation very difficult or impossible. On the same note, I believe all gun legislation should be at a bare minimum and a States Rights issue. I see no reason for the BATF.

      I would perhaps draw the line at civilians owning bazookas, machine guns but not automatic assault rifles, RPGs, and grenades. I agree also that gun legislation should be kept at a minimum and that any registration should be easy and inexpensive.

      However, one of my favorite cartoons is about the right to bear arms with a man having an F-15 in his driveway. :-)

      By the way, what are States? Just kidding. I think we should be called the States United of America. It’s more in keeping with the Founders and Framers intentions.

      colt1911, where should we draw the line? If we say we should allow citizens to have the same weapons that police or the military can carry, then that means we should allow citizens tanks, armed fighters (I had a wing commander who did own a disarmed fighter and if I had the money I’d own a jet fighter myself), or even nuclear weapons. A small nuclear device can fit in a large suitcase.

      As with all rights, they’re not unlimited or absolute. That is what’s at the heart of a democratic Republic as opposed to a so-called democracy. One doesn’t need to own bazookas, machine guns (even assault rifles aren’t machine guns), grenades, tanks, mortars, or howitzers to make the government properly fearful of the citizenry and its better for the government to fear the people than the people to fear the government as we have reason to do now.

      However, we can insist on such an unfettered right, lose all credibility with the majority of citizens, and lose the 2nd Amendment entirely. With the loss of the 2nd Amendment there’ll be no Bill of Rights nor any other parts of the Constitution.

      But I do approve of tar, feathers, and a rail. ;-)

    Recce1 It is true that we armed citizens and some other shooters don’t routinely train for a head shot. It is also true that this situation would have had me on the floor shooting high which would minimize the chance of a friendly fire victim. I’ve given a lot of thought (over the last 25 years) to how I would respond to one of these situations. I carried long before it was legal to do so in Texas and I will continue to do so long after the Socialist Party attempts to confiscate our weapons.

      Thanks for your excellent reply. In my job with the Air Force as a security, EA officer, armed agent on aircraft, and courier I was often armed. Also off duty I often carried depending where I was going.

      I completely understand your position and even agree with your carrying before it was “legal.” I used parentheses because I believe the 2nd amendment allows what you did and I believe the Democrat Socialist Party will do all it can to abrogate the Constitution, a document Mr. Obama despises and will do all he can to circumvent it, including trying to get passed a Trojan UN Treaty on small arms.

    HELLO, from DENVER, CO. 1) This young man was/is considered very smart. 2) He came here from UC at Riverside, CA. 3) He failed to ‘cut it’ at the U of Colorado Health Science Center (Hospital). 4) He got a job at McDonalds. This was not the ‘neuro scientist’ he expected to become. To him, apparently everyone was against him. He planned for at least 4 months to get even. Two experts with lots of experience dealing with these kind of individuals have said: This kind of act by males reflects their need to be important, and they equate violent acts with “masculinity”. The more horrendous, the greater publicity and recognition for them.
    Newspapers should remove his picture and name from the front page, and not show it on TV. And start printing the faces of those who died.)

    I don’t think it had anything to do with Batman. It is more like what a 12 year old boy observes in such movies as, “Die Hard” (1,2,3, etc.) where the ‘hero’ (?) survives and keeps shooting and killing, no matter how many others attack him. Observe how “Josie Wales” (Clint Eastwood) is able to keep shooting, hitting his target, killing at least 20 men, with a little help from Dan George and a couple females inside the cabin. And despite being wounded, Josie rides after the leader and finishes him off.

    How many young boys have been watching movies like that for a long time? What is the perspective of a 10-12 year old? Why are they even watching such stuff? Parents certainly do approve of it. Why?
    Do you think not? Then answer this: why was there a mother and her 6 year old daughter in the Aurora theater? Early in the morn? Her mother must live with that decision now, and forever, as her six year old daughter was shot, and died there! I expect she will rationalize that “everyone was doing it”.

    SOME of these commenters are concerned with the destruction of the 2nd Amendment. And well they, and all of us, should be. Right now, Secretary Clinton, and other anti-gun advocates, including Bloomberg, are meeting in New York. The purpose is to get the UN Small Arms Treaty passed. And the purpose is to disarm Americans and force U.S. to obey UN Law. At first it’s about assault weapons and other big magazine guns. But that’s just the first step. Once U.S. accepts it, it will be too late. The latest country to “control guns” is Australia. The government spent half a million dollars to get the public to turn-in their guns. And now, politicians there cannot explain why crime has gone up, more attacks on the elderly and more break-ins. Duh. They just cannot accept that criminals and mentally ill people didn’t turn in THEIR guns. And so it has been since the beginning of the 1900′s. Governments have controlled guns, i.e. Russia, Germany, and many more, and the citizens become subjects, no longer citizens. And over 50 million of them have died because of that.
    Research online and you should find a long list of the innocent people and countries where they died.

Of course he could have been trying to destabilize the legitimate government of Mexico to pave the way for the North American Union. Let me say that I believe that Obama is quite smart, and dangerously conniving.

      However, just as I don’t believe FDR was behind Pearl Harbor, Truman was behind the Korean War, Johnson was behind Vietnam, or Bush behind 911, I don’t believe Obama was behind this tragedy. Also, Clinton didn’t start the conflict in Bosnia, he just got America involved in it. By the way, several of the aforementioned wars could have been avoided with appropriate action.

At one time, a muzzle loaded flint-lock and a 6 pound Napoleon were the top of line…yes there were mortars as well. There is no good reason to limit ownership of any weapon to police and military unless the government fears its citizenry.

      Yes to the permit question. No to the punishment question. The fees should be minimal or free. The interest should be public safety; not a revenue source. Sad but true; not everyone should be allowed to drive, vote, reproduce, fly airplanes and carry firearms in public. If no other factor to consider; many of us will outlive our brains. Yes I know this violates the Constitution but so did the freeing of the slaves in 1865. Think about it. THINK THINK THINK ! Abolish the BATF and leave the U.N. Tomorrow. Take the vote away from all who are on welfare. Abolish all Federal Immigration and Gun Laws and turn this authority over to the States. One 6 year term for everyone in Washington.

      Colt1911, I think government sees everything and everyone as a revenue source. A democrat Congressman once said that all money belonged to the federal government and out of its kindness the government let us keep some for our own personal uses.

      With regard to the freeing of the slaves, it wasn’t a violation of the Constitution, just the manner in which it happened. But why do you bring it up? Should we say it was unconstitutional and reinstate it? After all, both Madison and the slave owning Jefferson believed that the concept that, “All men are created equal” applied to all races and eventually would lead to the end of slavery.

      As Lincoln said, the country couldn’t remain half free and half slave and survive. This was hinted at by the Framers. It’s the reason for counting slaves as 3/5th of a PERSON, in order to dilute the power of the slave states so as to end slavery, not to indicate that blacks were less than human as liberals claim happened, including Obama.

      Keep in mind the abolitionist movement started in England around 1800 with such Christians as the Quakers, Wilberforce, John Newton ( the writer of “Amazing Grace”), and in America in earnest around 1835 with Charles Finney, the leading revivalist of the Second Great Awakening.

      So I see no reason for interjecting slavery into the issue of the 2nd Amendment other than to say that the 2nd Amendment is what gave force to the Declaration of Independence. Had Lincoln not freed the slaves a violent anti-slave revolution would have been justified.

      So much for my standing on a soapbox.

      By the way, I agree with getting out of the UN. It’s a Trojan Horse.

      I’d also strip all executive agencies like the BATF, SEC, IRS, OSHA, EPA and other alphabet soup agencies from writing any laws or regulations, or having any ability to enforce laws without warrants and regular court hearings. Writing laws is the responsibility of Congress. I’d also say that no Executive Order could have the force of law but would pertain only to the internal workings of the executive branch. We don’t need governance by executive fiat.

      As for disenfranchising people, most people on welfare are the white elderly. So perhaps requiring able people on welfare to work or lose benefits would be better. Once we go down the road to disenfranchising whole groups of people, then might we say the military are no more that soldiers of fortune, that the rich are parasites, that those without a college education are too inerudite, or lawyers too devious (I enjoyed you comment about pettyfoggers) to be allowed to vote? The implications are that of a dictatorship and run completely contrary to the spirit of the Constitution, what’s left of it.

      As for federal control of immigration, take into consideration Article 1 Section 8 Paragraph 4 of the Constitution which states “Congress shall have Power To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization” and the 10th Amendment together. To me the word naturalization and immigration don’t mean the same thing and the Framers also knew that. Yet the SCOTUS in its 1976 Hampton v. Mow Sun Wong, 426 U.S. 88 Decision held that the power to regulate naturalization included the power to regulate immigration. However, the SCOTUS has been wrong before such as in the Dred Scott Decision and the Kelo Decision. That’s one of the reasons I opposed the socialist AG Holder from persecuting states over the Federal government’s failure to fulfill its first duty, to protect our borders.
