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
Predictably, 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.
- Obama Uses Australia as Example of Effective Gun Control, Shooting Takes Place in Sydney Shortly After …Contrary to what the genius in the Oval Office says, gun laws are completely ineffective at stopping violent crime. Part of the problem is these dolts are only looking at shootings and not overall crime to see whether or not guns hurt or help society. In the United Kingdom for example — where handguns are banned — there are 2,034 violent crimes per 100,000 people, whereas here in the U.S. there are only 466 per 100,000 people. That’s a pretty significant drop, wouldn’t you agree? I’m sure Mr. Liberal is baffled by this, wondering why our crime rate is so much lower. Two words: Second Amendment.
