Where Conservatives Gather

The AZ Tragedy

No comments

We know a lot more about the shooter today than we did yesterday..... From all recent reports, the 22 yr. Old shooter had no political affiliation. He was not from the right or from the left – he was simply crazy, maladjusted, some say psychotic even.

Early reports tried to paint the shooter, 22 yr. old Jared Lee Loughner as a right wing fanatic out to make a statement by shooting a Democrat Congress woman. But Rep. Giffords while being a Democrat was anything but what conservatives would call a flaming liberal.

First of all she supported the 2nd Amendment. And she favored tighter border controls all political stances that make us conservatives give her a thumbs up and most like her fellow Democrats ulcers over. She was in fact quite conservative. So if those left leaning bloggers had thought it out, she certainly did not make a good target for a supposed right wing idealist. If anything she was more times than not a friend to conservative causes. She was also a past Republican who switched parties

The kid was simply crazy. Deranged. And he slipped through the system.

He legally purchased the Glock 9mm semi-automatic pistol from the Sportsman Warehouse in Tucson last year. The background check did not turn up anything in his past that would prohibit him from purchasing a firearm or that would keep him from owning a firearm. Nor did it produce any hits on his mental instability.

He had two minor run ins with police according to online records according to the Arizona Star: “In October 2007, Loughner was cited by the Pima County Sheriff's Department for possession of drug paraphernalia, a charge that was dismissed in November 2007 when he completed a diversion program... One year later, in October 2008, Loughner faced a "local charge" in Marana Municipal Court. That charge was also dismissed following the completion of a diversion program in March 2009.” (Arizona Star 01/08/2011)

He tried to enlist in the Army but he was denied. The Army will only say that Jared Lee Loughner was "disqualified".

None of these would have been a disqualifier to the purchase of a firearm. He was kicked out of college due to his erratic behavior. He could not return unless he underwent a psychological evaluation and it appears he never did. If he had been evaluated, perhaps that would have been picked up by a background check.

It also did not take long for the liberal media to try to spin this tragedy to Palin, Beck and other conservative icons. And it’s rather disgusting that they would be so quick to politicize this tragedy in that manner.

And politicians are also jumping on the old tried and true Rahm Emanuel slogan of “let no tragedy or disaster go to waste”. Representative Carolyn McCarthy is getting ready to introduce gun control measures and there’s talk about reinstating the failed so-called assault weapons ban.

To really get an idea of how deranged and disturbed Jared Lee Loughner was, just go to YouTube and search his name and watch his rambling videos. YouTube has put up a compilation video of Jared's ramblings.

He was charged today with two counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder. You can read the indictment here.
