It was midnight when the movie the dark knight rises started. Moments later a lone gunman entered the theater and started shooting. He murdered 12 people and wounded 59 others, in what has been called the worst shootings in this nation’s history. This is not a tragedy but cold blooded, premeditated murder. Armed with what has been reported as an AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifle, a shotgun, 2 pistols, a knife and some type of gas grenades as well as full body armor he systematically killed 12 people.
The response from the media has been swift and predictable. Coverage has been on around the clock with the latest updates and the speculation has run amuck. Not that this anything new for the lame stream media. Who is this guy? Why did he kill these people? What groups was he affiliated with? These are all legitimate questions and should be answered. But then the false information and speculation started.
ABC News Brian Ross insinuated that there was a Jim Holmes of Aurora Colorado, on the Colorado Tea Party’s page. He did say that they didn’t know if it was the same Jim Holmes. Too late, the damage has been done. The connection between the Tea Party and the shooter has been made. Even though ABC retracted the statement later and said that it was an error and this was not the same Jim Holmes the statement was heard by many.
Piers Morgan of CNN, a gun control advocate tweeted the following;
Horrendous details from this Colorado cinema shooting. America has got to do something about its gun laws. Now is the time.
More Americans will buy guns after this, to defend themselves, and so the dangerous spiral descends. When/how does it stop?
Lunatics like this will always try and get guns. It should be 100,000 times harder than it is for them to do so. That’s my point
Well Mr. Morgan Jim Holmes did buy the guns legally and had the FBI background check as required by law. This was reported by Fox and others in the media. What you and others failed to mention is that Aurora Colorado is a gun free zone. So it appears that Jim Holmes broke the law anyway and being the only one that was armed he had little to worry about. Besides where were the police?
A couple of years ago in Tucson Az. The liberal left blamed Sarah Palin for the murders. You scum sucking bottom feeders have no shame and no facts to back up your claims. You just play the same old tune time and time again. Until you realize that the playing field has to be leveled, these types of events will continue to happen. Piers Morgan did tweet one thing that is true, More Americans will buy guns after this, to defend themselves. Maybe it is time to try it our way and Concealed carry is a very good place to start.
