A lot will continue to be spoken and written over the coming weeks months and even years concerning the shooting massacre in Aurora, Colorado. This tragedy has left a horrible mark on the lives of many, and when all is said and done it will affect a nation. It has taken the lives of twelve, including a six year old, changed the lives of
fifty-nine, brought heartache to the families of the casualties and impacted a community.
Immediately following the shooting, mainstream media began the blame game, thereby forgetting what was immediately clear. The fact that a deranged young man killed or injured seventy people. The mainstream media immediately attempted to take the responsibility of of the individual and place it onto a group. Not just any group, but a political group, the Tea Party. Later research actually shows that the shooter is actually a registered democrat, outspoken Obama supporter, and a member of the infamous Black Bloc. Yet, trying to seize the moment, Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos of ABC used this horrific event as a means to attack the political right.
The aftermath of the victims and their families and the wonderful community of Aurora seemed less “news worthy” than attacking people who had nothing to do with the incident. Media, once again, shunned the concept of personal responsibility in favor of political agenda. But then it dawned on me! This massacre is a literal wet dream for the “gun-grabbers”! So of course they will jump on it! With Secretary of State Hilary Clinton scheduled to sign the UN Small Arms Treaty on July 27, this shooting, only one week before the signing, would give the left plenty of ammunition to justify a second amendment violation. Already, several Republican Senators are using those taboo words: Gun Control. So the far-reaching aftermath is becoming apparent.
Terms and phrases that have been used a lot on the news are:
High capacity magazines
Ordered over the internet
Time to address America’s love affair with guns
Begin to at least limit access to large quantities of ammunition
And the list goes on.
So the aftermath will be Hilary signing the treaty, and that will stop nearly all purchases online involving ammunition and firearms accessories. A general banning on all firearms with magazine capacities of more than three rounds, a national registration law, the end of concealed carry and open carry, and a referendum on ammunition and the amount an individual is allowed to purchase.
This individuals action will end with a Nation being punisbed and the Second Amendment being all but removed.
