Today isn’t the day to talk about gun violence. It’s the day to do something about Gun Control.

Addicting Info

Despite the fact that mass shootings are an almost weekly occurrence these days, our country is in shock. A young man, for some reason, felt that the answer to his problems with his mother was to murder more than 26 people. It’s far too common.

Regardless, the reaction of many, especially those on the right, is silence. ‘Now is not the time,’ they say. ‘It’s too soon.’ ‘It’s disrespectful to the dead.’ To that, I say, BULLS***! There is no better time to address the degeneration of our society. There is no better time to address the fact that it has become acceptable among a small segment of society to shoot their way out of problems. There is no better time to address the fact that guns are easier to obtain than credit…

Today Was A Shitty Day…..


By Jueseppi B.

And the very sad thing is…..America will experience many more days just as shitty as this Friday, December 14th, Twenty Twelve.

 

 

 

America is like that hardheaded child we all know. The one who continues to do what they know will get them in deep trouble with their parents, but just does not give a damn. It’s more important to that hardheaded child to appear like it knows better than the parents.

 

 

I don’t really give a damn what any gun advocate has to say, there is no logical, common sense reason for any human being to stupidly use the second amendment as a right to a handgun or an assault rifle. The second amendment was written by men who didn’t even know what the hell a AR-15 assault rifle was, let alone the right to own one.

 

 

No Reason At All.

 

 

NBC Reports The 3 Weapons Used Today In Killing 20 Children & 8 Adults Were Legally Registered/Purchased By The Shooters Mom Also A Victim. I’ll Bet If You Could Ask Her, That Mom Is Now A Gun Control Advocate.

 

 

I wonder how many parents who lost a child today at Sandy Hook Elementary School, are  gun owners & are gun advocates & if they are still against gun control now.

 

 

Here’s what has been reported about the shooter, Adam Lanza:

 

 

1. He Was 20 Years Old

 
2. His Mom, Nancy Lanza, Was a Teacher Killed in the Massacre. Nancy is believed to be among the dead. Lanza apparently targeted her kindergarten classroom.

 

 

3. His Father, Peter Lanza, Was Found Dead Today at a Newtown Home Registered to a Nancy J. Lanza.

 

 
4. His Brother, Ryan Lanza, Was Questioned by Police.

 

 
5. Ryan, Not Adam, Was First Widely Reported as the Killer.

 

 
6. Another Brother of His Was Found Dead Today in Hoboken.

 

 
7. His Girlfriend is Missing.

 

 
8. He Traveled to the School Today from New Jersey.

 

 

9. He Dressed in All Black.

 

 
10. He Wielded 3 Guns, Two Handguns, a Sig Sauer, a Glock and a .223 Caliber Bushmaster Automatic Rifle.

 

 

11. Nancy Lanze, Adam’s mother, was found shot dead at their shared home. Apparently murdered before the school massacre.

 

 

12. Twenty-eight people were shot dead, including Lanza, his mother, 6 adults and 20 children. Adam Lanza died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

 

 

18 children die in their school’s class room. 2 children die in local hospitals. 6 adults die in their place of employment, that same school. Shooters mother dies in her home, killed by her son, the shooter. Shooter dies in the very school his mother taught her students. Most children killed, were killed in shooter’s mother’s classroom.

 

 

All because handguns/assault weapons are readily available to most any American who wants a handgun or an assault weapon.

 

 

You can’t register to vote online BUT, you can purchase a handgun and an assault weapon online.

 

 

You Can Take Some Action on Your Own To Effect Gun Control Laws. America Needs A Change:

 

The Brady Campaign

 

Go to http://www.bradycampaign.org/ to see how you can help.

 

 

Sign a White House Petition

There are a bunch of petitions on the White House site. I chose this one:

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

 

 

Immediately address the issue of gun control through the introduction of legislation in Congress.

 

 


President Obama’s statement on Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting

 

 

 

 

 

May the angels hold all of these children and the fallen adults. in their wings and carry them on to the arms of The Beloved.

We will never breath, like we breathed yesterday. Our breaths will always be just a bit shorter. 27 breaths shorter, one for each of Adam Lanza’s victims.

charlie_brownI went to pick up my four-year old daughter today from her preschool located inside a community church.  I had a relatively good day trying to be reflective and more available and open to Spirit, and less distracted by the noise of social media or the news.  So you can imagine my reaction when I learned of today’s horrific news that a 24-year old gunman opened fire at an elementary school claiming lives too many to count without streaming tears of helplessness.  I must be dreaming.

It seemed surreal as I stood there zipping my baby girl’s jacket, adjusting her barrette which I apparently clipped too tight this morning.  I could hear the chilling words from the chief reporting parent, as well as the words of the other mothers chiming in to confirm what they had also heard, but I was hearing all of this for the first time.  None…

The Presidents Remarks On Sandy Hook Elementary School Tragedy


By Jueseppi B.

President Obama’s statement on Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a complete transcript of President Obama’sremarks about the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, 2012.

 

 

PRESIDENT OBAMA:This afternoon, I spoke with Governor Malloy and FBI Director Mueller. I offered Governor Malloy my condolences on behalf of the nation and made it clear he will have every single resource that he needs to investigate this heinous crime, care for the victims, counsel their families.

 

We’ve endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years. And each time I learn the news, I react not as a president, but as anybody else would as a parent. And that was especially true today. I know there’s not a parent in America who doesn’t feel the same overwhelming grief that I do.

 

The majority of those who died today were children — beautiful, little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. They had their entire lives ahead of them — birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own. Among the fallen were also teachers, men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams.

 

So our hearts are broken today for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children, and for the families of the adults who were lost.

 

Our hearts are broken for the parents of the survivors, as well, for as blessed as they are to have their children home tonight, they know that their children’s innocence has been torn away from them too early and there are no words that will ease their pain.

 

As a country, we have been through this too many times. Whether it is an elementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a temple in Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods and these children are our children. And we’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.

 

This evening, Michelle and I will do what I know every parent in America will do, which is hug our children a little tighter, and we’ll tell them that we love them, and we’ll remind each other how deeply we love one another. But there are families in Connecticut who cannot do that tonight, and they need all of us right now.

 

In the hard days to come, that community needs us to be at our best as Americans, and I will do everything in my power as president to help, because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need, to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memories, but also in ours.

 

May God bless the memory of the victims and, in the words of Scripture, heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds.

 

END

 

 

Adam Lanza is the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter behind today’s massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.

Twenty-seven people were shot dead, including Lanza and 20 children. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

 

 

Here’s what we know about him.

 

 

1. He Was 20 Years Old

 
2. His Mom, Nancy Lanza, Was a Teacher Killed in the Massacre. Nancy is believed to be among the dead. Lanza apparently targeted her kindergarten classroom.

 

3. His Father, Peter Lanza, Was Found Dead Today at a Newtown Home Registered to a Nancy J. Lanza.

 
4. His Brother, Ryan Lanza, Was Questioned by Police.

 
5. Ryan, Not Adam, Was First Widely Reported as the Killer.

 
6. Another Brother of His Was Found Dead Today in Hoboken.

 
7. His Girlfriend is Missing.

 
8. He Traveled to the School Today from New Jersey.

March And Vigil Remember Chicago Student Beaten To Death Near Community Ctr

I’ve been sitting glued to my TV and tweeting for two hours as I’ve watched the unfolding tragedy of the Newtown, CT shooting. I had to come write and expel some of the horror and outrage that is sitting in my gut. I keep telling myself that it will do no good to cry, yet the tears leak out anyway as my soul will not be quiet.

As necessary as those tears are, they will not bring back the lives of the 18 children and 9 adults, so far reported, who died needlessly today. The wrongness and evilness of human actions sits on my chest like a weight.

Imagine the families who’ve lost children going home to their empty houses tonight, greeted by a void of silence where there children’s voice should be, or standing in the doorway of their empty children’s rooms. Think of the Christmas presents that…
