They pick and choose what to broadcast based on the agenda. In their eyes, the Sandy Hook tragedy was great timing for them to start up the gun control bull shit. But what people don't realize is that this shit happens day after day.



I just posted in another thread this morning about how the U.S. is so incredibly sheltered in comparison to the majority of the other countries. Our people do not know shit about what is going on, so they are left to their imaginations and come up with crazy shit.

I agree with you on that... they are totally using it to their advantage. But I think people are way to overly analytical on how the situation played out. It was a bat-shit crazy situation... of course there is going to be mix-ups and false reports.

That's like the girl (Hyidia) that was just killed at the end of Jan. She was one of 40 killed in Jan alone. Yet many groups are calling on Potus to attend her funeral. Why? She was an honor student & had just attended the inauguration. Why is her life more important than the 39others that died. Even the Governer just visited with her family, but not the other 39 families.



The media isn't covering the events that are stopped by law abiding citizens with a conceal carry permit.

Sadly, there is so much of it going on it is impossible to cover every single shooting death of children. All of it bothers me. I care very much when a child is harmed or killed & lately it seems like there is no end to it. It is very depressing and I really worry for my son even though we live in a low crime area.
I support gun control and regulation that Obama is trying to push forward and I don't care for him, nor did I vote for him.
I don't feel so paranoid that someone is going to show up at my house to confiscate the many guns we own, which are responsibly locked up and out of reach of our child.
I also worry about my sister in law, who currently lives in Chicago. I will be very happy when she moves back home.
Something has to change. We can't stick our heads in the sand and do nothing & think something will change on its own.

There also wasn't massive media coverage of the theater shooting in San Antonio. An off duty officer took out the gunman.

I'm imbetween on this. Like how the f**k would the government be able to convince a whole town to keep their traps shut? Everyone in that school would have to be actors or extremely high paid to not spill the beans on how this parent was an actor or that parent wasnt really his/hers. But I also believe the government uses these tragedies for their agendas. Also think the media is stacked in the governments favor and there are things they dont tell us. You'd have to be a moron to say 100% either way.

I don't see how people think it's a conspiracy. It's really sickening, it's like people are questioning the deaths of 20 children, and that their parents are actors. It's really sick and fucked up.
