So, let's see. Another unhinged Gomer appears, as if by magic out of the woodwork, and commences to blast away at innocent "victims".
And not just any "victims".
No, these "victims" were "children".
And not just any "children".
No, these "children" were in a "Jewish" community center.
Scant moments thereafter, Feinsteinaroni -- the San Francisco Twit -- announced that she would introduce legislation banning ... or registering ... or buying back ... or melting down ... or confiscating ... or inserting ... "assault weapons".
(And speaking of which ... how on Earth could anyone know with such certainty that the weapon Delbert used was an Uzi? How many times was that obvious fabrication blindly regurgitated by the network drones? You know, I actually heard one air-head anchor say that "scores" of "shell casings" from a "4 meter" caliber weapon had been recovered! By what -- a crane? And where do I buy one? I'll gladly pay the $200!)
And somebody please explain to me, once again, how they can charge Toomer with murder in both federal and state jurisdictions. Of course, I suppose one set of charges could always be dropped before trial, thereby eliminating double jeopardy. Not that it matters. He's already been found guilty.
So now it's "Order" this, and "Nation" that, and Mo Dees ululating about Cooter being in his database. So what, Mo? Should we go arrest everyone you've tagged as being "undesirable"? Somewhat ironic, don't you think, Morris?
Speaking of databases (databi?) ... the Feebs have a shiny new one (see the "short" between articles 1&2) in which to put said undesirables, it seems. And if it turns out that you didn't really belong there ... well heck, they'll put you in it anyway. After all, if you were even once a "suspect", you'll inevitably end up "violent".
And thus does "violence" in America continue to increase ... or does it? (See the "short" between articles 2&3.)
