Now, the most despicable Republican (this time) has to be Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona who sent a handwritten letter to the mother of a shooting victim claiming that he was “truly sorry” for her son’s death and that “strengthening background checks is something we agree on.” Of course, like all Republicans he voted against the background check bill.
But, even before the NRA, Gun Owners of America and other Pro-Unrestricted Gun Violence Groups cowered 42 Republicans and 4 Democrats in the Senate to defeat the Manchin-Toomey Background Check Amendment, the NRA was fighting for the Rights of Terrorists, like the Tsarnaev's to have ready easy access to whatever firearms they wished.
In 2011, Republicans on the House Judiciary panel shot down a proposal Thursday to prevent weapon sales to suspected terrorists. In a party-line vote of 21-11, the committee Republicans killed an amendment from Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) that would have blocked firearm purchases by those on the FBI's terrorist watch list.
I did a google search for the latest Gun Massacre in Seattle. The first two pages were a Gun Massacre in May 2012, in which 5 were murdered, 4 in Cafe Racer in North Seattle and a woman the shooter attempted to carjack. The Second Amendment Hero shot himself when he was surrounded by Police.
Continuing the search led me to the 2006 Capital Hill Massacre in which 6 people, 2 of them barely teenagers, were murdered by a Second Amendment Hero.
Of course, then I happened upon the 4 Seattle Police Officers murdered by ex-convict and good friend of Governor Mike Huckabee, Maurice Clemmons. However, Huckabee, who freed over a 1000 convicted felons, gets religious immunity for commuting Clemmons' sentence and freeing him because Maurice had repented and come to jesus, thereby washing Huckabee's hands of that killer's actions.
I also came across a story from Oregon City which stated a 32-year-old Second Amendment Hero was at home on Sunday April 14th, prepping for his new job as an armed security guard by holstering and unholstering a loaded weapon.
Fourth grader Shayla May Shonneker was about 50 yards away when the gun discharged, sending a bullet through a wall and striking the girl in the face while she was playing outside. The girl was later pronounced dead after being rushed to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital by LifeFlight helicopter.
Finally I managed to read the story from Federal Way, Washington about a 28-year-old man who fatally shot and killed his live-in girlfriend inside an apartment south of Seattle, then went on a rampage that left three men dead, including a neighbor who had phoned 911 to report hearing gunfire, authorities said.
It's so ubiquitous that you have to know which gun massacre/mass shooting/child murder you're looking for in order to stay up-to-date on the latest.
I could list the number of murders and negligent discharges which occur daily but what would that do? Gun Nuts are immune to that. The Mass Murders at Newton did nothing to change their minds, quite the contrary, it reinforced their desire to get more guns into more hands.
And that's the issue; More Guns has not made Americans safer. What it has come to is that the NRA, Gun Owners of America and other Unrestricted Gun Violence Supporters are more concerned with getting as many guns into the Country and damn the Consequences.
Because of their unceasing desire to up the profitability of Gun Manufacturers Government Officials are being assassinated and the lives and safety of the American People have been irrevocably damaged by NRA Sponsored Second Amendment Heroes.
Terrorists, Murderers and White Supremacists have a staunch ally in the NRA and other Gun Rights Organizations which will fight tirelessly so that convicted felons and murderous villains will have ready access to any type of firearm, with which they can carry out killings of Government Bureaucrats and Kindergartners.
