Go get yer learn on. And hope that this is the only ammo we’ll need to use in our defense.

Well, of course! That article makes perfect sense!
Anyone who doesn’t expect rainbows and bunnies as the nation runs off the fiscal cliff, runs up the debt, and runs out of gas…is clearly a nut. Our President has said everything will be OK (unless you are “rich”), so why would anyone worry? Preparing for possible bad things to happen is crazy stuff, because that’s just crazy!
And if you are crazy, and your kids do something crazy, you must be at fault. Because you are dead anyway, and there has to be something more than just “evil” at work here. Because evil is just an outdated concept that have no place in the modern world, like God and religion. Only rednecks and idiots actually believe that there is truly evil in the world!

And the Mourner Gun Runner-in-Chief wipes away his fake tears (outside corners of eyes – bad coaching) and declares in “Message to Newtown and America: ‘We Will Have to Change’”
Now, what responsible parent leaves firearms lying around with a reclusive, unstable kid with psychological issues in the same house?
I read that the feebies and cops were checking area gun shops and ranges looking for clues.
In my pop psychology opinion, they’d do better to check the perp’s video game collection, web site visits, movie rentals and downloads and video game stores and try to find out which sick violent world he was fantasizing in.

dick: I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks that video games, movies, and such play a factor in this sort of stuff. More and more I’m running across blogs and commentary by conservatives who on one hand champion gun rights, but then turn around and say that games, tv, movies, etc. have no effect on a persons psychology because there’s apparently some sort of voodoo magic that makes people invulnerable to it because they “know it’s not real”.

^ CI (7) – For 15 years I watched a kid of some friends get deeper and deeper into ‘super heroes’, Pokemon, D&D, etc. to the point where he was socially disfunctional. I sat next to him at a funeral for a person he knew all his life as a grandmother figure, and all he talked about was $%^& Pokemon and some other ^&*#$@# video game I never heard of. 19 years old – and that was his world. I worry how he’ll end up. Fortunately, a new step father came into his life a few years ago, and at least the new guy’s head is on dead right, and the kid doesn’t get to pull the crap on his mother now that he used to.

I’m guessing this tragedy is the cause of Hillary’s concussion. It’s obvious, when the tragedy took her away from the public eye, she hit her head while doing cartwheels.
There is nothing in this world that a normal functioning brain could think of or do no banning no love no drug for a person like him. NOTHING would make him/they normal. His brain (which is a body part) was not functioning and nothing was going to make it function normal –EVER. That is the REALITY that is what has to be recognized and dealt with. He could have grown to be a leader of a country and convinced his people that stripping humans/mothers and children naked and marching them into gas chambers was for the good of the world. He could have been a Dr. who was brain washed into thinking his GOD would love him if he would kill his fellow soldiers . He could be a father who believes he should kill his own daughter for not following the rules of their GOD. He could have been a Geofrey Dahmer on and on EVIL?????? All of this blaming and banning is useless.

I doubt we shall ever have these questions answered because the perp *deleted him mommy files* first! She could have provided information on herself and her son that would have been critical to the investigators.
Personally I would attempt to locate any doctor files on him. Or the lack of any. I read this morning that one of his former teachers said that “He had no sense of physical pain”! He might be bleeding from some injury, yet the teacher would have to point it out to him. There should be some medical records of that somewhere. If not, his mother was more batshit crazy than it appears at this point.

Blaming victims for crimes perpetrated against them is now normal in Britain.
Please check into what this government does to you and your child if you have a mentally unstable child in any capacity. Please do not blame the mother first. I’m sure this mother did everything she could and with what she had to put up with I don’t blame her for being a paranoid, gun-crazed mother.(If she was). Her son was 20 years old. She’s been putting up with the system and family and him everyday for all those years. She didn’t see a monster she saw her son and was trying to protect him.

She should have invested in a good gun safe. Any weapon I own that is not in my immediate control is locked in a 1400 lb steel box. Might not have stopped this guy but at least he might not have been able to kill mom with her own weapon.
