rant start, the ignored
obvious should be stated: the one to be blamed above all for the Oregon
shooting yesterday is one Chris Harper Mercer. And in a healthy, sane culture, it
would be left largely at that.
But the political culture of the United States is hardly healthy and too rarely sane. So, as always after a shooting not in Chicago, the Left is oh-so-eager to play the blame game to push gun confiscation, and Obama practically ran to the podium to do just that, of course.
But I will be a sport. Does Obama and the Leftist fanboys want to play the Blame Game? Then let’s play!
Umpqua Community College was a gun-free zone or at least the equivalent as confirmed by the UCC president.

Oh, the Left is doing their
worst best to dispute that inconvenient fact. They are failing.
As, sadly, in the Aurora shooting, this policy makes victims sitting ducks and is practically an invitation to shooters who prefer their victims unarmed.
At the very least, gun control on this campus did nothing to prevent this incident. Likely, it made it worse.
Further, although the
“mainstream” news media has yet to say much about it, there is very good reason
to believe Chris Harper Mercer targeted Christians, as one young woman in the
room testified before undergoing surgery.
The Left has created a hostile atmosphere against Christians in much of this country, particularly against Christians who hold firmly to traditional morality and refuse to participate in its destruction. You can cut this atmosphere with a knife on the Left Coast. Vilify even a peaceful, law-abiding demographic enough and allow such vilification legitimacy in a culture or subculture, and wronged-headed men could act out violently on that.
And one did.
I will mercifully stop there. But does the Left really want to play the Blame Game with this atrocity against Christians? And that when the Left vilifies and disarms Christians and would surely go further in vilifying and disarming them?
