Let me write the truth, where few will dare to go:
Guns were not responsible.
An evil human being, beyond description, was responsible.
You’ve likely noticed the number of persons killed as statistically incorrect. But I count only the worthy. Hence: 27 persons were killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, in this statement:
With all the carnage from gun violence in our country, it’s still almost impossible to believe that a mass shooting in a kindergarten class could happen. It has come to that. Not even kindergarteners learning their A,B,Cs are safe. We heard after Columbine that it was too soon to talk about gun laws. We heard it after Virginia Tech. After Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek. And now we are hearing it again. For every day we wait, 34 more people are murdered with guns. Today, many of them were five-year olds. President Obama rightly sent his heartfelt condolences to the families in Newtown. But the country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem. Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership – not from the White House and not from Congress. That must end today. This is a national tragedy and it demands a national response. My deepest sympathies are with the families of all those affected, and my determination to stop this madness is stronger than ever.
Rupert Murdoch, billionaire, wrote on Twitter:
Terrible news today. When will politicians find courage to ban automatic weapons? As in Oz after similar tragedy.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino also provided a similar statement:
As a parent and grandparent, I am overcome with both grief and outrage by the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. This unspeakable act of violence will forever imprint this day in our hearts and minds. My heart goes out to the families impacted by this senseless tragedy and the many others we have recently witnessed across the United States. As a Mayor who has witnessed too many lives forever altered by gun violence, it is my responsibility to fight for action. Today’s tragedy reminds us that now is the time for action. Innocent children will now never attend a prom, never play in a big game, never step foot on a college campus. Now is the time for a national policy on guns that takes the loopholes out of the laws, the automatic weapons out of our neighborhoods and the tragedies like today out of our future.
What might there be in common with all three of these reactions? Plenty.
They were issued by wealthy Demorats who each have their own personal protective retinue. They can have theirs; apparently you cannot have yours. Because if you conjure that Menino or Bloomberg or Murdoch make one move in public absent an armed protective contingent, you would be horribly wrong.
Further, two of them are mayors of major American cities where people are packed like herring and treated like herring, with a majority clamoring for Free Cheese. The price for Free Cheese is, obviously, loss of independence, enhancement of parasitism, lethargy of the proles, and an unwillingness of said involved governments to trust their baseline electorate. I submit: perhaps with good reason, due to voting history.
[A quick question for my readers about recent cultural events: does the current emphasis and popularity in the visual and written media with "zombies" have anything to do with a reflection of the American electorate in general?]
Make no mistake; elementary school children involved in this kind of trauma will be inexorably scarred for some time, perhaps their entire lives — depending on what they saw and felt and were told — and will be told — to see and feel.
It was heartbreaking to watch the live feeds of children attempting to relate what they saw and experienced, covered by all the major American media maggots. Whilst watching the immured reactions of the children, I formulated two immediate questions: 1) What unfeeling bastard could hold a camera in the faces of these kids? and 2) What unfeeling parent could keep from smashing a fist into the throats of these media whores — and, further, would allow their children to be interviewed in the first place?
Answer: immature parents and dupes who are media whores themselves and to whom their children were nothing more than temporary tools for reverse fame. Infamy.
I won’t waste my time writing about the shooter or his name or influences or his upcoming victimology. Frankly, he doesn’t deserve the consideration nor do I care if he was abused or had autism or perhaps three nipples. Because, when the Amercan maggot media is done with him, he will be a victim. Of his circumstances, of his upbringing, of his environment.
He was Evil, pure and simple. Evil has its nature, and he fulfilled those metrics. I have seen Evil, I have faced it, I know its smell, the taste of it on my tongue. I know how it walks, how it talks, how it lies, and how it revels in its obscenity. I have arrested Evil. I have booked Evil. I have ridden with it up elevators, pushed it into the back of marked units, had it shoot at me, and shot at it. I have had Evil hit me, punch me, cut me, spit on me, and smile at me with its maniacal grin.
Evil is the topic. And guns comprise only a miniscule portion of the tools it utilizes, in the past, now, and in the future.
A gun is a tool. And only that. A means to an end. Tools change, circumstantially-dependent. A tool used one way can harm. The same tool used another way can liberate and save.
Oddly enough, in a massive thrust of irony — ON THE SAME DAY — that only our Lord God seems to appreciate:
Knife-wielding man injures 22 children in China
BEIJING (Reuters) – A knife-wielding man slashed 22 children and an adult at an elementary school in central China on Friday, state media reported, the latest in a series of attacks on schoolchildren in the country.
The man attacked the children at the gate of a school in Chenpeng village in Henan province, the Xinhua news agency reported.
Police arrested a 36-year-old man, identified as villager Min Yingjun, Xinhua said. It did not give further details of the extent of the injuries.
And this in a country where no personal possession of a firearm is allowed, in any way, for any reason.
A Glock, a Sig, a Bushmaster. A knife, a machete, a sabre, a broadsword. A rock. A baseball bat. A series of highly-evolved and technologically-advanced drone aircraft.
Check history. Remember history. Because this important fact is true: one highly motivated individual, properly prepared, with mental singularity of mission, dedication, and a willingness to die for an ideal, can kill or cause to be killed any person on the planet.
No matter the tool involved.
