Media FAIL

September 16, 2013 at CNN:

CAROL COSTELLO: This seems so unusual to me that a gunman could create this kind of havoc at a U.S. military facility. Have you ever heard of it happening before, Brian?

BRIAN TODD: Well, we did have the Fort Hood shooting in 2009.

DOG Not saying you're stupid

While the Navy Yard assault was still on-going, some “source” told reporters the shooter had an AR-15. CNN’s Musket Morgan and a host of other pro-gun-controllers predictably jumped right on the wagon.

One has to wonder if they have these AR-15 stories pre-written, like celebrity obituaries. In any case, it turns out they were wrong.

Will they retract? ::snort:: One of them took a page from Shrillary “What difference does it make?” Clinton:

“Does it really matter what kind of gun was used? The people are just as dead regardless.”

Hmm … it seemed to matter when you thought you could use it to promote your gun control agenda.

Granted: Piers’ notation about Aurora and Sandy Hook were somewhat correct. Those shooters did carry semi-automatic rifles, though that particular gun malfunctioned during the Aurora incident.

But what about the SHOTGUNS? Huh? All THREE shooters had SHOTGUNS!

Don't judge gun owners

The bodies were still warm yesterday when the leftards started pointing fingers of blame everywhere, looking for a scapegoat for a deranged man deciding to kill  a lot of people. You know a lot of details, thanks to a liberal mindset that prioritizes making excuses for criminal behavior rather than simply accept that unspeakable evil exists in the world.

The predictable cries for gun control resounded from coast to coast, ignoring the fact no gun law would have stopped any of these tragedies. For them,it’s not about safeguarding the people, it’s all about control. Always has been. Yesterday’s shootings dominated the news, but there are a few items I dug up to intersperse among the daily claptrap you sift through here daily.


CAROL COSTELLO: I used to work in Washington, live in Washington. This seems so  unusual to me that a gunman could create this kind of havoc at a U.S. military  facility.


COSTELLO: Have you ever heard of it  happening before, Brian?

TODD: I’m sorry, Carol. I missed that question.  Could you repeat it please?

COSTELLO: I was just saying that this is so unusual, because this is such a heavily-secured military facility. I’ve worked  in Washington for many years, I’ve never heard of such a thing  happening.

TODD: Well, we haven’t either in this area, Carol. This is  the first time we’ve seen something like this, at least in many, many years. Now  you remember the Fort Hood shooting in 2009, where that was a member of the  service who was convicted eventually of doing that shooting.

This is Roy Hawthorne. He was a Navajo Code Talker in WWII. Communicating with others of his tribe assigned to different Marine units was the only code that was never broken during the entire war. He is helped by two Navjo Marines at the end of a two mile parade. His was a time when violent men with guns preserved our freedom with the kind of support from our country that will never be again. Ever.

I’m for more guns, thank you very much

2013: Twelve people were gunned down on a Navy base by a well-armed BAD GUY because the GOOD GUYS had no way to stop him.

1993: President Clinton barred members of the military, including officers, from carrying firearms on military bases.

Everybody in the military is not only vetted and well-trained in the use of firearms, but also has taken a solemn oath to put their own lives on the line to protect and defend others.

But they aren’t allowed to carry firearms on base?!?!

Gun control laws are not about reducing gun violence.

They are about disarming law-abiding citizens.

In 1976, Washington, D.C. imposed the strictest gun control law in the nation.

It prohibited anyone other than law-enforcement officers from carrying a firearm in the city. Residents were even barred from keeping guns in their homes for self-defense.

By disarming law-abiding citizens, lawmakers EMBOLDENED criminals!

  • DC homicides in 1975: 188
  • DC homicides in 1988: 369
  • DC homicides in 1993: 454.

In 2011, the state with the strongest gun control laws had more than THREE times the gun murder rate of the state with the weakest gun control laws. In DC, it was TWELVE times higher.

CALIFORNIA: Strongest Gun Control State 3.25 gun murders per 100,000 people.

UTAH: Weakest Gun Control Law State: 0.97 gun murders per 100,000 people.

WASHINGTON D.C.: Model Gun Control City: 12 gun murders per 100,000 people.

2011 Gun control laws increase gun violence

Clearly, people are going to have guns no matter how much you tell them it’s wrong, so let’s junk all that useless legislation and focus on teaching our young people to use their guns safely and responsibly.

We could start in elementary school with age-appropriate lessons about how you should not let anyone make you feel bad about your trigger finger but that you should never point a gun at anyone until you’re really ready.

Older kids would learn what the parts of a gun look like and how to clean, oil, assemble and safely carry one’s weapon. This would naturally include a lesson on how to properly rubber-band a condom on the barrel to keep water out. (For the sake of the children of gun-prudish Progressives, we could have the condom part demonstrated with a banana instead of a real gun.)

There would also be field trips to gun stores to see the wonderful array of possibilities that await the eager buyer as soon as s/he comes of age, plus assemblies where members of law enforcement, the military and the hunting and competitive shooting communities would come to talk about firearms.

Every high school would have a firing range and passing the gun safety, maintenance and shooting skills class would be mandatory before graduation unless the child’s parents filed a protest with the courts citing their rights under the Constitution to raise their children according to their absurd gun-prudish moral codes.

We could start somewhere small … say Washington, D.C. … and watch what happens to those gun crimes statistics. You know, the way they did with Charter Schools.
