I've long resisted applying for my CHL (concealed handgun license) because I don't believe a free man asks permission to arm himself. But this pathetic incident has changed my mind. That defective moron was able to act out his sick comic book fantasy because there was not a single armed man among hundreds of potential victims in that crowded mega-theater to stand up to him. And I wouldn't have been armed, either. Going to the theater just never seemed risky enough to risk a jail sentence for illegally carrying a weapon. It's still not. Which is why I need a CHL. The day one of these morons goes down in a hail of gunfire from his "victims" will be the last time this stupid "kill to be infamous" stunt is tried.

Sen.Feinswine said this the other day,to Rep.Johnson in a "debate" on gun control.
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...
