Disgusting: Democrat Anti-Gun Nuts Now Lumping in Trayvon Martin with Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson and Aurora Shootings

This is really sick and dishonors the victims of these mass killers. You know who it also dishonors? The guy who was found not guilty in a court of law for the Trayvon Martin shooting.

The guide spells out how to talk about gun control and when to press the issue, the best time being in the wake of a publicized shooting. For example, it calls on gun control advocates to speak out, “don’t wait” for the facts, after a shooting like Martin’s heightens awareness of the issue.

“The debate over gun violence in America is periodically punctuated by high-profile gun violence incidents including Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson, the Trayvon Martin killing, Aurora, and Oak Creek. When an incident such as these attracts sustained media attention, it creates a unique climate for our communications efforts,” said the guide.

How ghoulish is that? Using a tragedy creates a “unique opportunity” to spread your wildly misleading propaganda? Shameless.

“A high-profile gun violence incident temporarily draws more people into the conversation about gun violence,” added the talking points. “We should rely on emotionally powerful language, feelings and images to bring home the terrible impact of gun violence,” said the guide, which also urged advocates use images of scary looking guns and shooting scenes to make their point.

And by all means avoid the truth at all times. In other news:

Support for tougher new gun control laws has dropped since the horrific Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings last December, with most Americans instead backing enforcement of current regulations, according to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports.

The poll found that the nation is evenly split on the issue of new laws: 46 percent want stricter new gun control, and 46 percent believe the country does not need stricter gun laws.

Support for new laws reached 52 percent after the Sandy Hook shooting deaths in Newtown, Conn.

Rasmussen found that the public’s focus is more on enforcing current laws than adding new ones to enforce. Sixty-two percent of Americans continue to believe the United States needs stricter enforcement of existing gun laws. Twenty-five percent disagree, while 13 percent are undecided.

    To gun control advocates, these incidents are essentially the same kind of thing. An armed citizen protecting his life from a felonious attack is the equivalent of a wicked or demented shooter killing strangers because both types of incidents relate to legal availability of firearms.

    I stepped off the “equal rights for blacks” bus sometime in 1996. It was right after the conclusion of the OJ Simpson trial when I saw images of blacks cheering after his acquittal.

    OJ was guilty of brutally murdering two people. He cut their heads off. And I saw images of throngs of blacks celebrating his freedom.

    Are these the kind of people who we should welcome into our lives, communities, and neighborhoods without extreme suspicion? Not me baby. I want nothing to do with them.

    1) You cannot be argued out of a position that you weren’t argued into.

    2) If you are argued into a particular position, then you can be argued out of it, too.

    Given the number of times a Lefty has been caught doing something that they wanted found out an blamed on the Right, I’d expect a Lefty to be ready to pump a few rounds into some kids if the whole gun debate moves onto Page B12.

    Interesting that the dems pounce on those incidents that were all perpetrated by registered voting democrats or those with registered democratic voting parents. Not a single NRA member among the lunatic shooters.

    Responding to MT Geoff: Know the graphic novel / movie “A History of Violence”? That is exactly the “point” it makes: Violence is violence, killing is killing, it’s all murder most foul regardless of circumstances. Only an entire life spent in peace and prosperity could inculcate such idiocy.

    The “OJ got away with murder” meme is logically identical to the “Zimmerman got away with murder” meme. Each was found not guilty in a high-profile trial.

    Either we trust the jury or we don’t, but claiming that one is right and one is wrong according to the color of the defendant’s skin is illogical and, I dare say, reprehensible.
