Calls for greater gun control after mass shooting at school

Yahoo News – by claudinezap | The Lookout

The horrific shooting at the Newtown, Conn., elementary school that left multiple people dead, including, it’s believed, 20 children, has re-ignited the gun control debate.

Public figures immediately jumped in to offer condolences, while others called for new restrictions. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he was “shocked and saddened” by the tragic shooting. He said society should “unify” to “crack down on the guns.” And New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said “immediate action” was needed.

Mark Kelly, husband of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was gravely injured by a gunman in Tucson in 2011, wrote on Facebook: “The children of Sandy Hook Elementary School and all victims of gun violence deserve leaders who have the courage to participate in a meaningful discussion about our gun laws—and how they can be reformed and better enforced to prevent gun violence and death in America.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi ‏(@NancyPelosi) tweeted, “No words can console the parents of the children murdered at Sandy Hook. We share our prayers and our grief over these horrifying events.”

U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey of New York added to the call for gun limits, saying in a statement, “Our expressions of sympathy must be matched with concrete actions to stop gun violence.”

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, whose state experienced both the Columbine High School shooting in 1999 and the shooting at the Aurora, Colo., movie theater in 2012, offered his support in a statement: “The shooting in Connecticut is absolutely horrific and heartbreaking. We know too well what impact this kind of violence has on a community and our nation. Our thoughts and prayers are immediately with the families of those killed. We can offer comfort, but we all know the pain will stay forever.”

The debate in social media was fast and furious. Trending topics on Twitter included “2nd Amendment,” “NRA” and “Columbine.”

Ross McCall ‏(@maccageezer) wrote, “Senseless. The 2nd Amendment is NOT what it was originally set up to be. HAS to be more gun control.”

Daniel Stewart ‏(@dnstewart67) tweeted, “Any American who would prefer to see this on their TV rather than lose the 2nd amendment have no humanity. Sheer horror.”

Comedian Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) wrote, “Band-Aids-on-Band-Aids @NRA people want MORE access to guns to combat all the people w access to guns.”

Mediaite tweeted about MSNBC host’s Andrea Mitchell’s editorializing on air, who said, “When we talk about gun violence in this country, we’re not talking about Second Amendment rights.” She also called gun violence an “epidemic.”

Filmmaker Michael Moore (@MMFlint), who made a documentary about the Columbine school shooting, “Bowling for Columbine,” tweeted,‏ “Too soon to speak out about a gun-crazy nation? No, too late. At least THIRTY-ONE school shootings since Columbine.”

Assif Manvi (@aasif) of “The Daily Show,”  posted, “The #NRA politicians will now tell us that this tragedy could have been prevented if children carried guns! #WAKEUPAMERICA.”

Plenty of people also defended gun rights. SamEwinks (‏@SamEwinks), for instance, wrote, “The only gun reform we need is to allow people the ability to defend themselves, not provide nut jobs with easy targets #nra.”

josefsmith2011 (@josefsmith2011) posted, “Guns don’t kill people people do! Practice the 2nd amendment—keep your gun loaded with you at all times—the younger you are the better.”

And Cutty (@LilCutty) tweeted, “Changing the 2nd Amendment wont stop ppl from doin foolishness.”

  1. My Fellow Americans:

    So far,.. there is actually scant evidence to suggest that any kids were actually killed (hopefully this is true that no kids were killed).

    There are no pictures, vidoes by anyone showing even the movement of the wounded/dead from the school to the hospital, which is pretty much impossible in todays hyper-cell phone camera society.

    In addition, how is that a young guy with no military or law enforcement background was able to execute so many, so efficiently, in such a short periof of time, and have no suvivors! After all, soon as the first shot rings out, kids and people will seek to scramble,.. not sit perfectly still so they are easy targets!

    No blood stained EMT’s,. no blood stained teachers or school workers, no ambulances moving wounded or dead, no private cars used to get a wounded (bleeding) kid to the hospital, no movement of people with IV’s in them, and so forth.

    In fact there are a multitude of impossible inconsistencies for an event like this,.. to many, and all to similar, if not identical to Arura Movie theater, Siek Temple shootings,.. and others.

    I’m not saying that nobody was killed,.. but I am observing that beside the “police statements” and the Ministry-Of-Propaganda’s portrayal of this,.. there is no physical evidence that I have seen yet that would indicate that this so-called event actually took place!

    In the end,.. its all about this criminal gov’t trying to justify taking away peoples firearms so they can’t fight back when the time comes.

    These pyschos in charge, from Ocrapo to the Shadow Gov’t could not care less if a couple of dozen of children get blown away to carry out there enslavement agenda, hell,.. they do it everyday overseas with their drones just to make the Military-Industrial-Congressional-Complex rich,… the rest of us, Americans,.. are just more fodder.

    Time to abolish this criminal gov’t,.. as they have now crossed the line and declared Unrestricted-Warfare against Americans.

    JD – US Marines – I can only hope people see this was a gov’t sponsored event, and we are now technically at a “State Of War” with the Treasonous US Fed Gov’t.

  2. As you well know, JD, I’ve posted a number of articles from the M.E. lately, a number of them showing bloody photos of death and destruction. The MSM THRIVES on d & d, and that being the case, there should be at least SOME photos of bodies, blood, etc.

    After seeing all the different conflicting lies on the internet today, I’m also having serious doubts about the veracity of the reports of a massacre.

  3. Suzanne Collins is the author of ‘The Hunger Games’.

    Suzanne Collins resides in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, with her husband and their two children.

    This horrific crime was perpetrated in the town in which the author of ‘The Hunger Games’ lives. These are never random events.

    This appears to be a deliberately chosen place and symbolic false flag – a child sacrifice ritual that the Illuminati love so much.

    In the Hunger Games 23 children were sacrificed, the Illuminati love to use co-incidences and occult symbolism- Conspiracy, Conflict and Control. Draw your own conclusions.

    1. Hi david 2,

      Normally I don’t touch the so-called rutuals and ceremony’s of these NWO pschos partly because it is hard to verify them with irrefutable proof,.. and partly because it just gives their paid trolls a way to make it sound like we are the ones who are little crazy for such talk even though they do carry out these kinds of worshipping methods.

      In this case,.. I fully agree with what your saying, especially for the simple fact that they view “Child Sacrifice” as a REQUIREMENT to fulfill thier destinies as Global Slave Masters.

      To them,.. killing these kids (if that even really occurred),.. is just a normal day at the office.

      Remember,.. they ALREADY do it almost EVERYDAY with their drones over in the mideast and other places,.. and that is just to feed profits to our criminaly insane Military-Industiral-Congressional-Complex (Eisenhower’s orginal term).

      Expect to see more horrific acts as our criminal Fed Gov’t desperately tries to justify taking everyones firearms away so that when the time comes,.. NOBODY can fight back!

      JD – US Marines – Another horror brought to the American public via our crimnianlly insane US Fed Gov’t.

  4. U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey of New York said “Our expressions of sympathy must be matched with concrete actions to stop gun violence.”

    I agree. Kick all the Zionists out of the country and the gun violence will stop.

  5. If this really happened, the gun grabbers stooped to a new low: children. But the “end justifies the means” as fellow commies like to say.
    What’s a few children sacrificed when the result we be a disarmed society, with total control by the Satan-worshiping “elite?”
    It is also interesting: “Sandy” Hook. Not long after Hurricane “Sandy” slammed nearby recently.

  6. You will NOT take away one of the most effective means of protecting my family/children! Period.
    Not when there is as much prevalence of guns as there is. Not when cops have guns. Not when everyone else on the planet has access to them.
    Not gonna happen.
    I will DIE defending that NATURAL right.
    If you don’t like that…..
    YUK FOO. Nothing you can do about it. Nothing ANYONE can do about it.
    You are simply NOT going to take away main protection for my family/ children.
    Some might say “They’ll just kill you and take them.”.
    I say to them, “Yes, but they aren’t going to kill me while I’m sitting down asking please, such as you’re suggestion fully illustrates. You can BET on that. At least I will have died for the right fight!”.
    I will probably die with a smile on my face in that scenario, because I would also know that I will be leaving the foolish idiots to live in their own misery.

    It’s a pity that it even has to be that way in the first place. The children are going to have to be very strong soon. *grumbles obscenities lowly*

    ~Blessed Be to all~

  7. Connecticut’s Strict Gun Control Laws Did Not Stop the School Shootings in Newtown
    http://www.thelonestarwatchdog.com/2012/12/15/connecticuts-strict-gun-control-laws-did-not-stop-the-school-shootings-in-newtown/

    SO, WHY MORE GUN CONTROL LAWS ELSEWHERE, WHEN THEY DIDN’T STOP THE SHOOTINGS IN CONNECTICUT?

    It’s NOT about gun control. It’s about control. Governmental control – over you. Meaning, “no freedom for you! Come back, ONE YEAR!” (Soup Nazi, Seinfeld show)
