Okay, I gave it a day or two to let the media led political driven hyperventilation drop off a bit before I opined on the situation. You will notice I’m not offering prayers or mourning for the victims of the shooter on this post. I’ve done that elsewhere and between me and J.C.
First a word of warning: IF you are offended by common sense click off now.
#1. The shooter: A psycho and a very proficient one. He did what he set out to do. He deserves to be placed in a hole, covered with honey and left in the desert to rot.
#2. A guy with this much hatred in his heart was not going to be stopped before he inflicted death on innocent people Someone was going to die in that theater. He may have been stalled and allowed some innocents to get out. He wouldn’t in fact, have killed so many people. But he wouldn’t have been stopped totally.
#3. Anyone who thinks “If I were there with my GLOCK I’d have ___” (Fill in the blank) is a MORON. The guy had tactical advantage, he’d prepared the area, he had surprise on his side and he had the armament to isolate/eliminate threats. Unless you carry a gas mask with your glock and expected this scenario you’d have likely been gasping for breath and/or shooting randomly which would have made you a priority target for the shooter. But, if the Shooter had to dodge incoming fire, he wouldn’t have been able to kill 6yr old kids and fathers/Mothers/Grandparents at point blank range…. He wouldn’t have had a free fire zone, he’d have had to move/cover/shoot. HE was not a military trained individual. His shots wouldn’t have been near as accurate.
#4. This is the most important part. People are FREE in the USA. Meaning the shooter was FREE to go about collecting the things he wanted to make this operation such a success in his mind.
This is FREEDOM and WE Americans need to understand that the SHOOTER WAS FREE TO DO WHAT HE DID! The victims were FREE too, they were FREE to DIE UNARMED! They were DENIED THIER RIGHTS TO POSSESS THE TOOLS THEY COULD HAVE USED TO STOP THE SHOOTER FROM KILLING THEM! Denied by the very people we elected to office to protect our rights.
The Shooter bought his guns legally, he bought all the supplies he needed legally. The minute he took those tools into public, HE BROKE THE LAW. Those victims in the theater were DENIED the chance to exercise their RIGHTS TO DEFEND THEIR FREEDOM, by elected officials who believe GUNS KILL PEOPLE. Law abiding citizens are dead, the criminal is in jail. The criminals parents will be able to visit him. He will be able to talk to friends. Victims? Yeah just dead.
This shooting should wake people up, but unfortunately, it seems Americans are just going back to sleep. The 2nd Amendment is YOUR RIGHT TO NOT BE KILLED COWERING IN A CORNER BY THOSE WHO WISH TO KILL YOU! Be it, Government or some asshole in a trenchcoat or body armor and a firearm.
A lot of folks are wondering if there’s a connection to the UN small arms treaty vote coming up. Sad thing about that is, we trust our government so little that it’s a very possible cause of this tragedy. It’s extremely possible that politics/agenda is behind this act and the bad part is we’ll never know for sure. Think about it folks. Our government has become so UNTRUSTWORTHY because of their actions in the past. Wake up people we need to take our nation back ASAP while there’s still something to take back.
