COLORADO SHOOTING, THE BLAME GAME
The Tea Party was at least momentarily blamed by ABC News then retracted when the news agency actually investigated the facts surrounding the name they dug up from Colorado Tea Party memberships. Blame was placed on a supposed association with the Occupy movement which also was debunked after someone actually spent the time to investigate.
Then there are the many gun control advocates who are still trying to blame the weapons for the shooting and calling for more gun control measures. For those I have news for you, if there had been 10,000 more gun control laws on the books a sick twisted mind like that of this crazed lunatic would have still found a way to acquire what he needed to kill and nothing would have changed with more laws except law abiding citizens having even more of their Second Amendment right infringed upon.
Commentary after commentary has tried to blame movies as the source even to the point of claiming, "The Dark Night Rises," and the DC Batman franchise were to blame for this lunatics actions. Again I have news for those who seek to blame the movies. Literally MILLIONS of sane people watch movies daily and none of them have been influenced by ANY movie to kill people nor perform any other type of violence against their fellow man. Movies have been around since the beginning of the last Century and billions of people have enjoyed the entertainment and delight of a night at the movies and the actions of one crazed lunatic cannot be blamed on movies. Also the maniac could have just as easily chosen a shopping mall to attack, so would it have been the fault of J.C. Penney had he walked in and killed in that Department Store?
Next those great intellectuals who have tried to blame society for the actions of one lone lunatic. So in their supposedly, "learned," minds society was the blame for Jack the Ripper, Ted Bundy, Jim Jones and the mass murder that took place from his twisted mind in Guyana when he perpetrated the mass suicide of his followers. Society is no more the blame for what happened in Colorado than it is for other killings that take place by the actions of twisted individuals who no longer have any moral conscience or sanity to control their actions in a civilized and sane manner.
Evil exists in this world and that is the only explanation that can be placed when something as senseless and unthinkable as the deaths of so many and the wounding of so many more in a movie theater takes place as it did last week. The blame belongs directly to and ONLY to the sick twisted maniac who planned this massacre for months and then pulled the trigger killing innocent people who did nothing more that gather with friends and family for a time of relaxation and entertainment taking advantage of the very same freedom to do so that has existed in our country from our birth. He and he alone is the blame for the tragedy and he and he alone deserves the punishment for the results of his crazed maniacal actions.
