From none other than BadCatholic who writes, in part:
I understand that there is a need to talk. The experience of evil leaves a sickening void, and man and nature abhor a vacuum, especially one so terrible. So we discuss. We analyze. We have a “national conversation”...
Gun control advocates are using this horrific tragedy to justify the promotion of an agenda that they have been progressing for decades. As David Axelrod said a few years back, “Never let a tragedy go to waste.” All the while, supporters of the Second Amendment, like me, are expected to apologize, like it was our guns that were used in the crimes, or simply shut up and let the extremely vocal gun control lobbyists be the only voice in this “search for common ground.” I, for one, am not going to apologize, I’m not going to be quiet, and I’m
Tim Scott has been appointed to fill the South Carolina Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Jim DeMint and immediately the racebaiters jumped in with both feet to attack him. One of the early hatemongers was Amos Brown, a host on a religious radio station in Indianapolis, Indiana. Brown resorted to his Twitter account to claim that African American Tim Scott isn´t really a black man.

NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd feels that the crime at Sandy Hook school in Newton, Connecticut should give rise to a new "middle ground with the National Rifle Association," meaning that more gun control is somehow in the middle.
After the Pearl Harbor attack, sometime close to Christmas, the U.S. government gave thousands of Japanese-American citizens and Japanese immigrants the “4-C” designation, signifying “enemy alien.”
Inouye was one of many loyal Japanese-Americans who felt the burden of proving their loyalty to a country (their country) that held their families behind barbed-wired fences, concentrated in internment camps around the nation.
The all Japanese-American 100th Battalion, 442 Regimental Combat Team, became the most decorated unit in American military history.
This ought to outrage, particularly when those responsible start talking about a war on women.
I suspect some of my readers are not fully aware of the impact Obama´s HHS mandate will have on non-Catholics. In fact, I suspect many non-Catholics in general are unaware. And I know many Catholics, sadly, who are clueless.
So as a public service, here´s a piece that spells out where we´re headed...
I can’t imagine anything more painful for a person than the loss of one’s child, and so I won’t pretend that I can adequately express the horror of the savage murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
A liberal accused me of being un-empathetic — indeed, utterly heartless — because I continue to support the Second Amendment as written and because I think it’s a dreadful idea to ban all guns but for revolvers. (Incidentally, did you know that the Dunblane shooter got around the problem of a limited bullet capacity by bringing multiple weapons to that small Scottish school?) The logic was that I could show I cared for the bottomless grief the survivors are suffering only by granting the bereaved parents the balm of doing away with the object that ultimately caused their children’s death.
