Just exactly how did you come up with the name Open Minded, is it some kind of a joke? Maybe I should go by the name, Lovable Democrat. Im just a schmuck on GCG the same as you, so i doubt what i think one way or another matters much concerning mass shootings. I was merely explaining how the media would go into attack mode, and how and why they do what they do. It was NOT my first response to defend gun rights, but i knew that would be the lefts first reaction to put guns on trial before the bodies were even removed from the scene. It WAS the Democrats that came out as they always do with the guns bad angle. My Brian Ross example is the norm, not the exception. After getting guns bad front and center the job of the media grunts is to find a Republican connection. Scanning Tea Party memberships to find a matching name to the Aurora shooter was just one of dozens of like searches the media did and does after every mass shooting. It was the leftist media that first made the Country Western, red neck Republican connection, one CBS VP was was even fired over it. So if these were red neck Republicans that had it coming, is it a stretch to believe that the shooter may have felt exactly the same way???? Lets not pretend for even one second that half the country would not be blaming Trump as an accomplice if a rap music crowd had been targeted. It would be a ten times bigger story and guns would have to take a secondary role as being to blame in that scenario. Trump would be the MAIN Target. And yes, i would bet your Open mind would be right in the middle of that party. My very first thought was all these innocent lives are nevermore, and look at this crazy bast***. How many minutes before the Democrats start pushing to make the shooter an NRA loving gun toting red neck Trump voting NAZI? It seems you dont like that kind of jumping to conclusions, HMMM.
