There's so many threads on this matter now that I'm not sure if others have posted the same idea. But I wanted to share a thought or two
The coverage on this tragedy is nearly 24/7 --- every-time I catch the news channel on there it is. Every mainstream news site has it plastered as the
maximum number of stories. Even forums like ATS have a constant stream of these threads with thousands upon thousands of post in a relatively short
amount of time.
I turned on the news for 15 minutes just earlier, & the reporters were re-telling the same shooting account over, and over, and over. Then one
mentioned how gun control advocates are heated, and pushing the president to make a move. The attention focus here reminds of me 9/11.
Now I sympathize with the families and children who lost loved ones; but for one I think it's unhealthy & a bad idea to put so much focus on these
types of occurrences. As one poster pointed out with a video, this may actually prompt others to commit similar acts because they want their 15
minutes of fame. Even at the cost of many lives.
Also, this entire thing seems to be a huge distraction/diversion from other events that may be happening. One huge example is
Outrageous HSBC Settlement Proves the Drug War is a JOKE
. These bankers got off with a
measly fine for directly harboring the money that the cartels made (killing thousands of people). This is the sort of story that should be on every
front page news source. I think we really need to keep our eyes peeled for stories/articles flying under the radar now. Including existing or new
legislation that may be used against us. NDAA-type deals.
Lastly, the shooting is being exploited, to the max. If Americans stopped to think for a moment that thousands of children are being murdered overseas
due to our relentless drone strikes, over the years. Not to mention children killed (estimated 1/2 million) from sanctions put on certain countries.
Yet 18 American children are killed as a result of one lone man, & the nation burst into an out-roar. Gun-control advocates are in a frenzy, and even
people that previously were not for gun control may feel obligated to now support these laws. This entire situation is a mess of epic proportions, and
one that feels like it's going to be used
