From the ISRA.org.

Quote:
INFORMATIONAL ALERT – GUN GRABBERS INVADE SPRINGFIELD


About 150 Chicagoans swooped down on the state capitol to let the legislature know that, when it comes to banning your guns, they mean business. April showers prevented another dozen or so protesters from showing up to hear riveting antigun speeches from the likes of Fr. Mike “Snuff’em” Pfleger and Illinois’ Governor DeLuxe, Pat Quinn.

Those who bothered to listen heard the same old stuff about how the solution to Chicago’s murder problem is to take the guns away from the rest of us. Nowhere was there a mention of how two-thirds of Chicago murders are gang-related. Nowhere was there a mention of how almost 90% of Chicago murderers have previous criminal records. Nowhere was it mentioned that about 75% of murder victims have previous criminal records. No, the message was that Chicago has suffered enough at the hands of callous, heartless suburbanites and downstaters who dare to own firearms.

Of course, the gun-grabber rally enjoyed huge attention from the gun-hating press. Early morning Chicago news programs ran remotes from local demonstrator mustering points complete with talking heads and satellite trucks. Special units of the Chicago Police Department cordoned off areas for several blocks around protester bus loading points. And there were probably about 2 reporters for every 3 protesters who showed up at the Capitol’s Lincoln Steps. By comparison, the press pretty much boycotted IGOLD 2013 despite the fact that we had in excess of 8,000 attendees.

Of course, in the eye of the media, a gathering of 150 anti-gunners demonstrates that there is a widespread mandate for gun control while, on the other hand, a gathering of 8,000-plus gun rights supporters illustrates that there are too many dangerous people on the loose.

Welcome to Illinois.

It's been posted before but it's worth viewing more than once.

Too bad no politician on either side of the aisle has the cojones to make that speech for real.

The Navy Yard massacre happened in a "gun-free zone" , where the killer had a guarantee of some success .

The killer reportedly stayed up all night playing violent video games . If you are inclined to scoff at that, go to YouTube and search " Call of Duty Airport Massacre ".

He was a paranoid schizophrenic . He apparently also suffered from PTSD from helping out on 9/11 .

He did not use a semi-automatic or a military-style rifle or an assault rifle and still did plenty of damage .

He passed the background check to buy his shotgun .

Those are the important facts .

I wonder how much useful training the violent
video games provided him . Did the games keep his disordered mind focused on his plan ? Does a sick person act out in ways familiar to him ? Do such games desensitize people, program their reflexes so they keep on moving and killing after the first shot...?
Why do these violent video games show up so often with mass killers ( Sandy Hook, Aurora, Columbine, Navy Yard, Michael Carneal ...) ?

Are these games a good hobby for anyone ?

Do our brains form connections and thinking patterns from what we feed them ?

Guess I've been censored on the video game discussion. An explanation would have been nice. Maybe this is more PC.

1) The gov't tells us NOT TO JUDGE ALL MUSLIMS because of a FEW lunatics.

2) The gov't ENCOURAGES US TO JUDGE ALL GUN OWNERS because of a FEW lunatics.

Sorry. I was in a rush. It has nothing to do with PC. This thread is specifically for resources to combat gun control.

Ok. Fair enough. But how does the previous post on speculation on the effects of video games have anything to do with combating gun control?
