    ...and the media is already branding firearm owners as crack heads who want to attack school children. Out of everything that was made public, this is the headline from Yahoo:

    Shooter's Mom Wanted to Buy Him Gun for Christmas

    Really? If she'd wanted him to start taking Xanax, would that have made a headline, too?

    I don't get your post. Is the headline incorrect?

    Out of everything that could have been said...out of everything that was discovered...that was the headline of choice?

    CNN couldn't figure out what to blame. Of course, they prominently displayed a picture of a "Bushmaster" but "violent video games" were also being mentioned at a higher rate than normal.

    The liberal news outlets are doing their best to try to come up with a motive, because it will make them feel better about how to stop it. Almost every article I saw talked about "still wondering why", and "motive still unclear".

    The thing is this - Crazy as shit doesn't need a motive.

    Now what that statement means is all their plans for prevention go awry. They cannot legislate away this kind of threat. It flies in the face of their 'disarm the public" notions, because it becomes obvious the way to stop it is at the point of attack, and by armed citizens. And that entire problem/solution scenario is abhorrent to liberals, because to a man, they do NOT have the intestinal fortitude to actually pick up arms and fight.

    Yeah, you can't legislate mental health, which is what the core component to all of this is orbiting. 19 kids were killed in the Oklahoma City Bombing, and outlawing or significantly impeding the ability to acquire fertilizer never came about.

    This feel-good legislation is ridiculous. Worse, it's vapid and useless.

    Nailed it, yep.

    There's billions of people on the planet, with complex brains. It's only natural for some to get "zapped".
