Can you hear that? The deafening silence? Where are all of the online posts and comments about this recent mass killing?
This deed is done predominately by Anglos. Period. I am quite sure that if any particular minority group had been responsible for these senseless incidents, there would be a host of postings and hard copy letters to the editor. Where are they?
Maybe, just maybe, Anglos are rightfully ashamed. It has been my experience that Anglos are loath to fess up to any bad traits that they may possess.
It's strange, when Anglos do these type of things, they are referred to as being mentally deficient. Minorities are referred to as being evil.
Evil is evil, and does not discriminate.
We should be aware of the fact that most of these mass shootings are carried out in areas that restrict the presence of guns. The shooting in Aurora, Colorado is a prime example of that. I have several friends, one who happens to be handicapped, who can make a gun out of material that they have lying around.
If by some chance occurrence every American was required to turn in their firearms, no one can honestly believe that sportsmen, pure gun enthusiasts, or gang bangers would turn in their gats and ammo.
As an avid first person shooter video game enthusiast, I am quite sure that the Newtown killer was what is known in the business as a camper. These are folks who play games such as Metal of Honor Black Ops II online, find a prime sniping position, and have their way with unsuspecting gamers.
I have a friend who has over 9,000 one shot sniper kills on Battlefield 3. Another, a Mormon got me into finishing Rainbow Six: Las Vegas with only one shot kills, as he did. They have never killed anyone.
I have noticed that I have become more proficient at head shots by upsizing to a 73 inch HDTV from my 50 incher.
On a strange note, I wonder if this killer, in his twisted way of thinking, figured that he would spare those poor kids the pain that was visited upon him, or that he thought was visited upon him.
Finally, recently the moderator of an internet website chose, in my opinion, chose to foreclose on common decency and published a vulgar statement by a poster that would offend even Andrew Dice Clay. Rewatch that great dark comedy: God Bless America. It is not what you think, and laments why we can't just be decent, just be decent.
