Can another Tucson be prevented? Has Jared Lee Loughner ended the Tea Party?

Over the next few days and weeks, "State Houses" across America will start new policies that further prevent law-abiding Americans access to their own house. (That is for another blog post.)

I am not one to ever minimize the tragedy that unfolds when it comes to something as precious as human life, or speculate, yet I must ask the 1st obvious question. Why is it with so little to almost no information can we so quickly enact new security policies, criticize Arizona gun laws, and demand more laws preventing gun ownership?

No, I know what you are thinking...I am not a terrorist. I am an American......No, I know what you are thinking...I am not an extremist. I am an American. No, I know what you are thinking...I am not a conservative. I am an American. Nope....again, I know what you are thinking....I am not a racist, bigot, or homophobic. I am an American.

The New York Times asks "Do you think a toxic political environment contributed to this tragedy? Do you think this will change the political culture of the United States? Do we need to be more "civil" to each other? What do you think politicians, the media, and ordinary citizens could do to ensure something like this doesn't happen again."...

"They" say we need to get out of the fog?

It seems pretty clear to me that the "Mainstream Media" has spent a great deal of time churning the barrel of discontent across this great country. The politicians seem disconnected with their constituency doing what the feel is best for us, as if we were children. The same people who are asking these questions have posed them in such a way that almost demands that "Politicians, The Media, and THE PEOPLE" decide....and it seems to me that the way the questions are phrased, that we are somehow supposed to believe that that is the "new" pecking order because they keep repeating it?

It also dawns on me that I recall this tactic of repeat the lies enough and the people will believe them being used before. The last time it was used, it cost tens of millions of human lives. The problem, reaction, and solution concept in "social-class" warfare seems to be working.

Now that the air is clear...the facts are not. Jared Lee Loughner, a confused young man, under medication, and now in custody. Arizona Gun laws and all state gun laws are now under attack. Politicians and Media seem to be "working" together.....Isn't it time we did the same?

I now will attempt to answer the question(s) in the New York Times piece....Oh wait, I did try.

In my Saturday, October 17Th 2009 article entitled FREEDOM TOWN U.S.A.

Can we talk about this now and not wait any longer?
Can we afford to wait anymore?

Wasn’t it President Obama that said “we’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us”? Does that disenfranchise (their term) the citizenry that is in within their constitutional rights to speak in opposition and to dissent. I deem the statement as the ultimate suppressive threat from our President. A vitriol debate we didn’t create.

Arizona gun laws have been put in the spotlight again by anti 2nd amendment activist writers that pose as investigative reporters such as the Washington Post’s James V. Grimaldi.

Here’s a question all the social pundits should be asking themselves. If I was there would I have had the courage to drawn down on the assailant which could have prevented a senseless murder of a 9 year old child? Or is that a vitriol question? Ya know, just saying, don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste.

James V. Grimaldi is an investigative reporter for the Washington Post and has been accused fraud in prior reporting. His writings subjects are conclusively anti 2nd amendment and have been critical of Arizona gun laws. He is a recipient of the Annenberg Selden Ring Award and is Professor of Journalism at Princeton University.

Freddy Kunkle belongs to a facebook group that feels when the news is small, it sometimes hurts to report it straight. He has also written about Arizona guns.

Point here, activist writers don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste. Sway public opinion, it’s a right.

Grimaldi is a activist writer conclusively anti 2nd amendment. He’s been accused of fraud in the past.
