This topic is a few weeks old, I was drafting the post and then something called work (and a weak knee) got in the way. So in the spirit of cleaning up things, here are my thoughts on the latest mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. President Obama’s rapid effort to politicize this recent tragedy, by his own admission said it needs to be politicized, wasted no time to call for even more “reasonable” efforts for gun control, even though the shooter bought his weapons legally, and Oregon already has all of the expanded background checks that he is calling for.
The real deal is that what those who advocate for reasonable regulation really want is to damn the Second Amendment and confiscate all law-abiding citizen’s weapons. They just aren’t brave enough to state the obvious. Yet.
Here we go!
Welcome to the Second Amendment Christopher Sean Mercer TAkes!
A few days ago, there has been yet another mass-shooting at a school, a community college this time, which also practiced a gun-free policy, the Umpqua Community College.
There has been a huge effort to suppress the story, even down to the shooters name in the early phases of this story. His legal name is Christopher Sean Mercer.
President Obama wasted no time nor effort to politicize this shooting, by his own admission.
I would like to offer condolences to all victims and families of this tragic event, as well as a get well soon to all of the survivors.
The US intelligence services ignored warnings about the Boston Bombers from the Russians, in fact we made a citizen of one of them.
I’m not surprised, are you? The media seems to be covering up the full extent of this story as well, with many outlets not even mentioning the shooters name.
Political correctness not only suppresses free speech, it also ends in needless deaths when PC trumps reality.
There has also been a doubling down of the call for expanded gun free zones, when gun free zones are the underlying cause to begin with.
There was a directed effort to conceal the identity of the shooter in this case, in which the media also participated in for a time. Megyn Kelly was one of those who took up the policy. Sheriff John Hanlin: “You won’t hear his name from me or this investigation.”
If American journalists would simply do their job and report the facts about a news story, much of this nonsense could be averted. Instead we are faced with psy-ops from all sides. A Sheriff refuses to release the name of the shooter? Does anyone think that he dreamed that up all on his own? And that major and cable media played along?
OKC, Waco, Sandyhook, and all of the rest have been controlled events after the fact (even during the fact in Waco) and I for one am getting quite sick of it. Suppressing the facts serves no one, especially our once fair republic.
Oregon already has expanded background checks in place, and Christopher owned 13 legally purchased firearms. Why very little mention of his mother whom he lived with? His parents were divorced since 2006 or thereabouts.

Obama did politicize this tragedy, which he admits. What liberals really want and won’t admit is the total confiscation of all modern firearms from our citizens. They are just too chicken to say it.
>The school is described as a “gun free zone” and has only one unarmed security guard, who carries mace. The shooter was taken out by two local police officers who raced to the scene.<
The local Sheriff refused to identify the shooter. I’m betting some powerful folks whispered in his ear. Megyn Kelly played along too, on FNC.
Just for giggles – she needs to work on her tats some, though.
“I say it’s time for a new political aesthetic, that we find beauty in the macabre,” she said. “If you elect me as president, I’ll paint the White House black, permit the lawns to wither and die, and I’ll turn the Lincoln Bedroom into a mock funeral parlor. Visiting heads of state will be forced to confront their own mortality. Instead of backing down from [Russian president] Vladimir Putin at a UN summit, I’ll present him with the skull of a beloved Victorian poet.”
The executive action recommendations:
1. Issue guidance to ensure that dangerous people are not permitted to carry guns within 1,000 feet of a school;
2. Issue a regulation clarifying that high-volume gun sellers are “engaged in the business” of dealing firearms and must obtain dealer licenses and comply with applicable laws, including background checks on all gun sales;
3. Instruct federal law enforcement to identify and arrest dangerous criminals who try to buy illegal guns, and to notify and work with state and local authorities when these illegal purchases are attempted;
4. Assist states in enforcing their existing background check laws by publishing aggregate background check denial data for guns sold by unlicensed sellers; and
5. Protect victims of domestic abuse by clarifying that convicted abusers are prohibited from having guns regardless of marital status.
Sounds great, huh? Except that all of these items are already law, excepting the first point, which was overturned by the Supremes as Unconstitutional in the early 90s.
He did this after Sandyhook. Most were totally meaningless.
Why be concerned with Congress or the Constitution?
“Oregon law does allow permitted concealed handguns on school property. The New York Times, Media Matters, and others have been quick to pounce on this fact. What has been ignored, however, is that public educators in Oregon have undermined the law by putting bans in faculty and student handbooks.
There may be no criminal sanctions for violating the ban, but faculty face termination and students risk expulsion. Those are life-altering penalties. Faculty members undoubtedly won’t get another academic job if they committed a firearms violation. Expelled students are very unlikely to be admitted into another college.
Although Umpqua can theoretically provide written exemptions for the bans, school president Rita Calvin wouldn’t even let the college’s security guards carry guns.”
