Congressman wants murdered children 'exploited,' wants 'war' with NRA

Curiously, though, he seems not to have uttered a word of criticism of those now explicitly calling for the murder of NRA members and leadership. Or perhaps that is not so curious--he is the one calling for "war," after all, and war tends to involve killing.

It is somewhat puzzling that he seems to believe that he will be on the winning side. We do have the guns, after all--and the will to use them.

You want a "war," Nadler? Here's some free advice. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.

We need to have a national conversation about Media control. By Renée Pseudonym Laggard

Well, its happened again – a school massacre takes place and the BSM jumps in with both left feet engaging in Assault Journalism with wall to wall coverage that glorifies the killer and encourages copycat attacks.

In their efforts to denigrate the people’s right of self-defence they promote and glorify the perpetrator, making them an instant celebrity in a world that has forgotten the difference between famous and infamous.

Perhaps we should discuss the possibility that it’s the Bull Stream Media’s fault in promoting these atrocities.

We all need to sit down and have a discussion of the role of the press in our society. Does it keep us safer? Or does it encourage more attacks putting more children in danger?

It is time to forget the politics of a free-press and instead think of the larger questions like the safety of our children.

We’re not talking about taking away the BSM’s First Amendment rights; we’re only talking about cutting the carnage brought about by Assault Journalism.

Does the BSM really need high-capacity magazines?

Does the BSM really need 30 minute clips?

The 1st amendment guarantees the freedom of the press but that isn’t an unlimited right by any means. The 1st amendment was written back in a time of printed media that traveled at the speed of a horse.

There is no way the founding fathers could have known how media technology would evolve.

These days the BSM can operate at the speed of light, with video cameras shooting at least 30 frames a second. They could not have envisioned high-capacity magazines that can shoot out reams of lies before they need to be reloaded with the next issue.

They could not have envisioned the private sale of Media outside the control of the government, private Media that could easily set off the next lunatic on a spree of carnage.

So, when is the best time to make sensible, pragmatic changes to our media law?

How about now?

And I'll get us started:

We need a ban on High capacity magazines, there is no reason that Time or Newsweek to be more than 10 pages.

We need a ban on 5 minute news clips – there is no reason any one needs a clip longer than 5 minutes

We need to end private sales of Media – we need the government to control who can buy media and whether they have the mental capacity to consume such media.

We should make it a felony to purchase Media for those who can't legally buy Media themselves.

We should have background check on all purveyors of Assault Journalism to close one of the major loopholes in our current Media law and make it harder for criminals and those with mental illness to engage in Assault Media.

Ensuring background checks on all Media personal would close one of the major loopholes in our current laws and make it harder for criminals and those with mental illness to gain access to Media microphones.

We should deny a Media permit for habitual offenders who have continually celebrated the murderers in these mass shooting outrages.

You can help if you have a device capable of receiving Assault Media; you need to turn it into the government right now.

We should put in place a national ban on assault journalism and have a serious review of Internet transmissions of large amounts of media.

And if the media fails to submit by these Common-sense measures We will need stricter penalties for those who refuse to abide by the provisions of the a new Assault Media Ban.

Obviously, our children, our families, our neighbours, our law enforcement officers (did I mention children yet?) deserve and expect more responsibility than talk.

Just a final note: Journalist should take my sarcasm as a cautionary tale in that if you take to destroying one group’s Constitutional rights, don’t expect people to respect YOUR Constitutional rights.

The constraints on government put in place by our founding fathers either stand together – collectively if you will – or they fall together. Something you should keep in mind whilst you seek to eviscerate everyone’s right of self-defense.
