I have read the comments of many an NRA supporter over at the Washington Post and other venues and there is considerable rage about ‘defending themselves’ in the gun community. NRA 500 Suicide: Man Shoots Himself To Death At NASCAR Race: the main danger of guns for white men is suicide or killing family members or unsuspecting neighbors. Ever since Obama won the election with considerable support from women, white males have been having this meltdown.
Whenever there is a terror attack, the very first thing I do is look at the date. If it is the anniversary of key moments in various ethnic cultures, one can assume there may be a connection. 9/11 is an odd date. It is a magic number game for US elites at top colleges especially Yale. It is definitely a favorite mental locus for magical tricks. But that complex event pulled in many odd participants.
This one is screaming ‘Right wing domestic terror’ similar to the Oklahoma City bombing. The motivation is obvious: rage over the debate concerning registering guns. Nothing much is even being forbidden, just the names of gun buyers will be enforced. The fury over this is just astonishing when we consider that no one may operate or own or put on the road any vehicle that isn’t fully registered, insured and passes inspection and ditto the drivers who are arrested for a wide variety of reasons if they don’t follow fairly strict operation rules.
There are many, many restrictions and rules concerning any vehicle including wheel chairs, bikes and other modes of transport and shocker as this news is, WALKING is also regulated! And you can be arrested or given tickets for walking in the wrong places or wrong times or while impaired. Drinking is heavily regulated, too. Many, many things are regulated and outright forbidden. Such as certain drugs, just for one example.
Boston Marathon 2013 started with silence to honor Sandy Hook victims…and the latest headline from NYC is, 12 dead, nearly 50 injured after 2 explosions rock Boston Marathon, suspect identified and being guarded in hospital – NYPOST.com. I saw the blood on the ground from a helicopter shot and there was considerable blood mainly behind the police barriers where the crowds watched the finish line.
I once had to stop a leg hemorrhage in Tucson many years ago and applied a tourniquet and used my search and rescue training to keep the woman alive and she survived but if I wasn’t there, she would have died before transport to a hospital. These shrapnel filled devices were designed to make maximum physical bleeding damage.
