RIP Claire Davis

I, along with millions of decent Americans, are horrified that your murderer was legally able to buy the weapon of your murder. He displayed mental illness in speech and actions, yet none of that in Colorado, a state which recalled properly elected lawmakers because of their attempts to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals, stopped him from buying the weapon and ammunition that killed you Claire,
I don't live in Colorado, yet how can I do something to honor your life which was cut short way too soon? What is wrong with at least slowing down if not stopping an individual who shows signs of mental illness, especially violent mental illness, from buying a weapon of violent murder?
Why can't we ALL work to keep the violent mentally ill individuals from owning fire arm? Why does the NRA advocate Karl Pierson has the right to buy and own guns and ammo? Why are there not "halts" in the process, or at the very least, a "let's look at this guy" before he was able to buy the gun which murdered you?
Gun obsessed nuts don't really give a crap that you, Claire, were murdered. The NRA is doing their "happy dance" because nra gun laws contributied to your death,

Using the blood of the dead to attack the NRA and people that disagree with you?
Using the blood of the dead to push your agenda?
It's ok. We're cruster Democrats. Lower than pond scum? We embrace the scum.

Isn't starting an entirely new thread "Truth about the Arapahoe High School shooting"...isn't that "Using the blood of the dead to push your agenda?"
So when wingnuts go on and on about this shooting inre 'He was a Socialist Damnit!!' 'Gun Laws don't work, See!!' 'Only good men with guns!!! blah blah blah.....That's not politicizing a tragedy?? Cut me a break.
As far as the NRA is concerned?? You want pond scum; seek no further. On the day of the CO shooting--after it was already being covered live--The NRA posted the tweet: "Looking for a last minute gift? Look no further than the #NRA Store! http://www.nrastore.com/ " Last year in July, hours after the Aurora, Colorado massacre that left 12 dead and 70 injured, the NRA sent out a tweet asking, “Good morning, shooters. Happy Friday! Weekend plans?”
I'm not saying "it's just tv" starting a new thread on this is a terrific idea, and yes, it may even be a bit crass. But that's no reason to respond when you've got hypocrisy wall-papered on your face. You could have just ignored it.

"The NRA is doing their "happy dance" because

That is an unconscionable lie. NO ONE...not the NRA or any responsible firearms owner/user...celebrates the murder, accidental death or suicide of any human being. The wholly inappropriate use of firearms is a tragedy.
But...tragic as it is...people die every day from the perfectly legal and legitimate use of other kinds of objects that lawfully exist in our technological society.
It is a sad commentary on media "professionals" when they use a tragedy like this to push highly politicized gun-grabbing schemes. What the media SHOULD be doing is urging government and medical professionals to develop a method of identifying and documenting those who...through mental or emotional issues...might present a danger to themselves or others.
But when concepts like "if it bleeds, it leads" dominate media philosophy I have little to no hope that the Fourth Estate will become an ally with the NRA and others to prevent future incidents of this type. I shudder at the images on my TV of satellite trucks camped conspicuously in the area of a mass shooting and the wall-to-wall, 24/7 coverage that portends.
This is the very reason I say the media shares the responsibility for such incidents.

Shut the hell up for once, you heartless bastard.
Let "it's just tv folks" express grief in his/her way, for crissake. What the hell is wrong with you? A national tragedy occurred, it's the holiday season on top of it, and you haul out that bully shit again.
Drop your sickening, relentless self-centeredness for one day and allow another poster to grieve. They have that right, no matter whether you're capable or not of feeling human emotion.
Grow the hell up, you immature dolt. You're no genius, you're no expert, you're no political spokesperson, you fool nobody; you're a garden-variety, dime-a-dozen empty-headed loudmouth online jerk.

I believe cruise is right there. While it is obvious everyone anywhere on the political spectrum USES these tragedies for political purposes...I don't find evidence for the CELEBRATES charge. Totally different.
As for the "the media shares the responsibility for such incidents" charge cruise...there we may disagree. How much the media contribute to 'copycats is an age old debate--one with merit I might add. Even I acknolwedge that giving a shooter 24/7 coverage might encourage others seeking that sort of infamy a 'spark'...but as far as "shares the responsibility for such incidents" goes...I think the NRA is far more complicit than the local 6:00 news.
Covering the shooting AFTER it happens is one thing...helping the gunman get the gun BEFORE the shooting is something else together.

And to the rest of you: Quit encouraging the a-hole to dominate Every.Single.Thread with his foulness and bullshit.
Sure, he's entertaining, and you love to laugh at the freak show. But by egging him on, you've succeeded in driving nearly everybody off the entire BBS. That's nothing to be proud of. MB isn't going to keep paying for six users' toxic playground.

Before I come down on you like a truckload of bricks, I'll give you the opportunity to explain what that means.

This shooting has nothing to do with the NRA.
Nothing. What they did (or didn't do) on these days isn't

Heartless bastard? Heartless bastard?
You have a poster who is ignorant of Colorado gun laws.
Ignorant of mental health laws.
Pretty much a normal day for just tv. Instead of taking the time to research and learn, he chooses to act like a moonbat.
Grateful, why so angry? Stop spending so much time here. Go outside. Get some sun. Have some fun.
Mp, politicizing this tragedy would be pointing out the fact this shooter was a anti-gun, anti-NRA, pro-ACA moonbat.
No one is doing that..

(crickets) I gave him an opportunity to explain what that meant but apparently I was right...there is no rational explanation. It was just his typical snarky self.
The NRA doesn't "help" gunmen get guns, it helps protect the rights of firearms owners/users. It takes NO role in the acquisition of firearms.
And the NRA is VERY interested in trying to help keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally and emotionally incompetent.

And cruiser knows, he has said many times he has no teeth!

Indubitably egregious, yes?

When was the last time the NRA declined to use a school shooting to push THEIR schemes?

con john quinn parma putzo, what did I post that was inaccurate about Colorado law? The the murderer did legally buy the weapon of murder.
Gun obsessed nuts, as opposed the decent upstanding citizens who responsibly own guns, are doing anything they can to make it easier for criminals, especially terrorists,to obtain guns. They overturned a couple of legal elections by recalling legisltors who supported background checks to prevent criminals from easily buying guns. What's wrong with keeping criminals from buying guns?
What is your proposal to keep weapons of murder out of the hands of violent people like Pierson? Come on little quinny, step up to the plate. What have you got? More dead people? Great plan. More dead children? Great plan.
Of course, I only expect from you what you do best quinty, heckling.

When was the last time the NRA was a news organization?
One EXPECTS affinity organizations to actively support their causes. One DOES NOT expect a news organization to be politically active at all. Journalists are expected to be impartial chroniclers of events, not active participants in them.
And...let's face it...the media has been ANYTHING BUT impartial in the wake of the unfortunate mass shootings, all of which were committed by those with mental/emotional problems. These are the people who need to be closely monitored but liberals, the media and the medical profession are much more interested in patient "privacy" than in the safety of the general public.
