    At least 12 people killed at Colo. Batman showing

    I wonder if the gunman got his weapon from Obama and Holder?

    Pray for the victims and their families.

    The perpetrator could have used fertilizer and kerosene--more govt. controlled weapons will not prevent this from happening again.

    Let's start another govt. agency: Controlling the Lethality of Stuff.

    Another dumb idea: stop sending money to Hollywood.

    Man is depraved--it becomes more obvious every day.

    Even so, come Lord Jesus.

    Peace,

    Bro. James

    Was just telling someone this after already hearing Mayor Bloomberg in NYC asking what Mitt Romney and President Obama plan to do about gun control, all the while nestled behind the secure watch of his gun carrying security team?

    I can drive a car into a grocery store or onto a playground or into a park and randomly start running over folks. Are we gonna collect all the cars next?

    Crazy folks do crazy things. And "gun control" ain't gonna stop crazy folks from shooting others with guns.

    The villian in the picture is a hero of a group that acts very much like the "occupy" crowd.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this guy was a member of that group that was encouraged by the president to "occupy " Wall st and various other cities.

    Being sympathetic to their cause, Obama never condemned their lawlessness and violence, instead he encouraged them..

    Now I can't hardly wait for the leftist spin blaming this on lax gun laws and then , finally, on George Bush.

    Already started. The "politicians" will do the same thing they did when Congresswoman Giffords got shot.

    This is what happens when only the bad guys have guns.

    One lone and armed CHL holder may have prevented a lot of the carnage.

    Either I missed it, or the article said nothing about what became of the shooter. Was he captured; did he kill himself (preferably), or did he get away.

    He was captured, sitting quietly in a car outside the theater (in an alley behind the theater; kinda sketchy on that one). Basically waiting for the police to come get him. (at least, that's the radio reports I've heard so far)

    Nope.

    What I did criticize is SarahPAC (Sarah Palin's PAC) putting out an advertisement with crosshairs from a gun sight put on Gabby's district, among others, and her name listed on the same. The blame is with the nut job who had the gun, but I did mention that such ads are irresponsible.

    http://static01.mediaite.com/med/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Sarahpac1.jpg

    Edited to add: Even if I DID do so, does that make it right? Am I the standard? Your politicization of this horrific event this morning is disgusting and disrespectful to the families of the victims. Your trying to point the finger to others doesn't mitigate that fact.

    You are a real piece of work. Your deflection from your vile comments don't wash. IIRC, the shooter in Tucson was obsessed with showing up at Giffords' rallies and shouting out questions. He was an against big government according to reports which you can look up yourself, as I won't bother to do so.

    But again...EVEN IF I DID do as you erroneously claim...AGAIN...does that make it right?

    Pure speculation to slander the Occupy movement. No evidence of a link.

    Now building a case off of your own straw man to malign the President.

    Bush? You are truly unbelievable.

    This video essay by Bill Moyers showed up on my Facebook page today. I'm not sure why I'm posting this here because, from reading the other posts on this thread, it is sure to be a useless gesture. Here is the link. Let the casting of stones begin.

    When you break through in China, it will be your lucky day. You won't be able to dig your hole any deeper.

    But just once before you continue your excavation, tell us again how disgusting it is to politicize a tradgedy.

    Start with the example you set about Giffords and continue on from there. I can hardly wait.:thumbs:
