From Columbine to Connecticut, shootings mean war against guns

The immediate reaction by the liberal media, President Obama and other anti-gun politicians to the tragic shootings of children and teachers at the elementary school in Connecticut on Friday signals an all-out war against guns — which could very well lead to a movement to disarm the American people, leaving law-abiding people vulnerable to criminals who will always have guns.

This, coupled with mass shootings from Columbine to Colorado and others, is a manufactured crisis that the president and Congressional Democrats will not let go to waste. Particularly, as a distortion and distraction from the social, political and fiscal crisis.

Regardless, one thing is glaringly and painfully clear: The insidious, long-time secular, liberal progressive agenda has undermined our constitutional freedoms and moral imperatives with unbridled government growth, waste, fraud, abuse of power, corruption, regulation, taxes, dependency and debt.

Add public education, media and Hollywood indoctrination — social aggression, political terrorism, selfish interests and extremes — to such an extent, that our nation is rife with functionally illiterate students, “anything goes,” sex crimes, drugs, gang violence, murders, robberies, burglaries, theft and imported crime.
That is the problem. Not guns.
