I often do not comment on major news stories because so many similar blogs often do. In this case – I will make an exception and provide my two cents.
First off – I cannot possibly imagine the terror, frustration, and sadness that the victims and families of victims must feel.
Second – the guy who is responsible for this is pure evil and should have a bullet placed square in his head…..today.
Next – absolutely if someone in that theater possessed a firearm and knew how to use it – things may have turned out different.
Further more – anti-gun and anti-2nd Amendment folks will take advantage of this and seize it to promote their agenda.
There are a lot of rumors going around. People are suggesting that this might be a “false flag” and a set up to provide buy in to UN initiated gun control measures. I don’t think so.
Over the next weeks and months the mainstream media will inundate the public with information about the killer. We will learn where he grew up, who he dated, whether or not he was abused as a child. We might even learn his favorite cereal. The bottom line is the news media will focus on regurgitating the same information over and over again rather than informing the people of these United States of America of matters of reality, truth, and importance to the future of this country.
In no manner am I suggesting this unfortunate event is not important – but rather that the news media will focus in an unbalanced way on it while ignoring other critical stories that should be told.
I pray for the victim’s and families effected by this tragedy.
