We have all seen the news stories of the Navy Yard Massacre. Those of you who go beyond the biased MSM will know that Alexis had some serious mental problems, and that his employer failed to complete his background check. You also know that, despite the MSM bleating about it for days, there was no AR-15 involved.
But lost in the blizzard of disinformation is: why did Alexis do it? What made him follow Joe Biden’s advice (“Get a shotgun”), and saw the stock off while writing cryptic messages on the gun? What made him snap?
Clearly, this must be it:
What Alexis did was wrong and monstrous. But, having used the newest version of Office, I understand. Ballmer could screw up anything without really trying. He should do what George Costanza postulated, and do the exact opposite of what his instincts tell him to do. I mean, raising the price of the Surface2/SurfacePro2, after the first ones didn’t sell? That is some industrial-strength denial at work, to arrive at that decision.
Of course, this is just the excuse that dessicated ratchet-jaw Nancy Pelosi (D-LaLaLand) needs to ban MS Office.
It’s like Groundhog Day.
I can’t claim to be surprised, since this is what the gun-grabbers do every time they think they can tie a criminal act to the issue of gun control. They even have a written strategy guide to help them twist current events into excuses for gun control.
And at the other end of the spectrum, the gun-grabbers in California are about to enact a ban on lead hunting ammunition. All of you gun-owning Californicators can expect ammo shortages and skyrocketing prices. If you thought the ammo problem was bad now, just wait until Governor Moonbeam signs this liberal wet dream into law.
Yet the gun-hating sits-to-pee coalition accuses law-abiding gun owners of being paranoid for opposing their endless, pointless gun-control schemes.
To that, I reply (in the words of a scientist named Carl Sagan):
He is a scientist. I have to believe him, right?
We talked before about doctors pushing gun control.
But now a major medical journal is taking the exact opposite view:
“A major fallacy in the analogy between motor-vehicle crashes and shootings is that crashes are almost always accidental, and shootings are almost always intentional. Thus, in the former, the safety characteristics of cars and roads are highly pertinent, whereas in the latter the issue is why a shooter decides to pull the trigger.”
The article also calls out the AMA (American Medical Association) and ACP (American College of Physicians) as having “fashioned gun violence as a “health problem” rather than a “crime problem.” In so doing, they have avoided the real causes of violence and to pursue federal funding for research from an advocacy perspective.”
