This man claims to have a fellowship!? Such hilarity! To speak of cherry-picking gun control statistics and then mentioning only Britain...without mention made of Norway, Japan, etc. and to speak of one sided propaganda when the very first people to take advantage of this tragedy were those claiming it a punishment for an increasingly secular society(You might want to check Norway and Japan again..but if you were one to research, you wouldn't be here would you?).

Our primary motivation is, however, to keep the rustic rubes in fly-over country from being an armed mob opposed to the ever benevolent State beause (of course):

Government is here to help us.

Dave, you are becoming very very good at sarcasm. You get an "E" grade for "Exceeds Everyone!"
Since so many in the media cannot resist turning every tragedy into a political talking point, it was perhaps inevitable that (1) someone would try to link the shooting rampage at the Batman movie in Colorado to the Tea Party, and that (2) some would try to make it a reason to impose more gun control laws.

Too many people in the media cannot seem to tell the difference between reporting the news and creating propaganda.

NBC News apparently could not resist doctoring the transcript of the conversation between George Zimmerman and the police after the Trayvon Martin shooting. Now ABC News took...
