No Rambos At Umpqua

Last Mission

If Barack Obama and the Democrats had their druthers, we once-proud Americans would all be like old John Rambo … disarmed, discombobulated, and needing a push from the government to get to the can.  When the bad moon’s rising, liberals huddle under their canvas and wait for the wolves. The rest of us lock and load.  Case in point: the latest massacre committed by a gun-wielding malcontent in a “gun-free” zone in a state in which the national bird should be the cuckoo and the state anthem “Kumbaya.”

The Oregon college where at least 10 people were killed in a shooting rampage Thursday had in recent months considered hiring an armed security guard — but ultimately decided against the proposal, the retired president said.

“We talked about that over the last year because we were concerned about safety on campus,” Joe Olson, who retired as president of Umpqua Community College at the end of June, told The New York Times. “The campus was split 50-50. We thought we were a very safe campus, and having armed security officers on campus might change the culture.”  (Umpqua Community College Considered Armed Guard, Dismissed Idea)

Well, nothing changes the academic culture more than a bullet to the brain, now does it?

“[The gunman] thought he could make a splash – and he did. Now Obama is using it to jump start gun crime. That doesn’t work here. It’s too bad they couldn’t get him as soon as he fired the first shot.” Anonymous Oregonian

Just Like The Old Soviet UnionPredictably, the smoke at Umpqua had not yet cleared before the Community-Organizer-In-Chief stepped to the bully pulpit in Washington, and began his latest anti-gun rant (during which he, of course, referred to himself 28 times in 12 minutes), and described the nation over which he is somehow unaccountably presiding as the most trigger-happy country in the known world.   But, as is the case with all things Obama, the truth lies elsewhere:

Boom, here we go: The Rampage Shooting Index. Taken from a now-defunct website, it assembled data from around the world to construct a per capita mass shootings index that controls for population differences … The U.S.’ index of 0.12 per 5,000,000 places it behind Norway (recall the Anders Breivik massacre), Finland, Slovakia, Israel, and Switzerland – at half the ratio. (IJ Review)

” I will politicize this,” Obama says.  As if he’s ever done anything else.  If there were any justice in the world, he’d be doing it in Norway.

    We solved that problem with great common sense. Sefrikens are ingenious,

    We handed all the confiscated guns plus enough explosives to the bank robbers to blow the entire ATM Machine contraption right out of the bank wall with a getaway car parked two meters away. Banknotes flying all over there is normally enough for them to grab and make a dash.

    The police are not allowed to shoot them so there is hardly a chance that they will be apprehended. It is their right for past oppression by the European settlers who stole their land 350 years ago.

    The fact that they considered hiring an armed security guard shows they were cognizant of the threat. That they didn’t should be plenty of fodder for a Lawsuit. This is the only thing that will change this situation of gun free zones. Make them pay so hard they can’t sit down for a year. My last blog post goes into a little more detail. Just click my ID.
