Ft. Hood

KriegKrieg Posts: 5,092 ✭✭✭
I really am surprised it took this long. Usually after a tragedy involving a firearm, the anti-gun nuts are quicker on the trigger. Stepping up to the moonbat microphone in the aftermath of the Ft. Hood shooting we have Chicago's Thug Mayor, Richard Daley. Daley opines that this happened because of America's love of guns! He says, "Unfortunately, America loves Guns. We love guns to a point where that uh we see devastation on a daily basis. You don't blame a group."


Americans don't love guns, you fool. Americans love freedom; and American's cherish their right to own and to use firearms, if necessary, to defend those freedoms. This truth is so basic that even Daley should understand it: Guns don't kill people, people kill people. There's another little saying that I like more. "If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns." Actually, that's not quite correct. Only the government and the criminals will have guns. And another little reminder: Blaming guns is the easy way out.

If you blame guns for violence in the inner city, you don't have to address the black culture of violence. If you blame guns for Ft. Hood, you don't have to address the Islamic culture of violence. You focus on objects, not people, and objects don't vote. You're safe in your demagoguery.

    Krieg, I have to disagree with you on this one... I do love my guns... Sometimes when it's late and the wife is out of town, we cuddle a little. The metal warms up quickly on my bare skin and... uhhh.... Maybe I'm sharing too much. LMAO

    A GUN wielded by a heroic mother of one, stopped the Fort Hood shootings from being worse.

    objects are not good or evil. only how you use them make good or evil.
    if I bash someones head in with a rock, the rock is not any more or less evil than if it was a decoration in my garden.
    If someone uses a gun to kill a few people on a military base the gun is not any more evil than if it is used to hunt for food or shoot clay targets or protect your own home from invasion.

    I do love freedom, and to protect that freedom, i own a gun.

    My other thought on this is, why is the media trying to down play the connection to Islamic extremism in this case?

    i am hesitant to make a huge deal of it at this moment as well. not all of the info is there. even if it seems overwhelming in the direction that it IS islamic extremism, i like to see a more in depth look before we just flat out call him a terrorist.

    there is at least a bit of evidence that he was just a nut job. Hasan spent six years as a psychiatrist at Walter Reed, beginning in 2003, and he had a fellowship at USUHS until shortly before he went to Fort Hood in the summer of 2009. Both fellow students and faculty were deeply troubled by Hasan's behavior — which they variously called disconnected, aloof, paranoid, belligerent, and schizoid.


    keep in mind that i have had very little time to follow this story. so ... yeah... i may be a bit off here.

    Well fellow students and faculty also heard him say that insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan were justified in planting roadside bombs and he tried to contact terror organizations by email. I'm not saying we can say he "is" an Islamic terrorist, but to avoid that topic entirely is also wrong.

    Too bad when the "truth" is not politically correct, the liberal media tries to bury it.
