End the Gun Epidemic in America

End the Gun Epidemic in America
​It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD DEC. 4, 2015

All decent people feel sorrow and righteous fury about the latest slaughter of innocents, in California. Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are searching for motivations, including the vital question of how the murderers might have been connected to international terrorism. That is right and proper.

But motives do not matter to the dead in California, nor did they in Colorado, Oregon, South Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut and far too many other places. The attention and anger of Americans should also be directed at the elected leaders whose job is to keep us safe but who place a higher premium on the money and political power of an industry dedicated to profiting from the unfettered spread of ever more powerful firearms.

Ohio Community Lives in Fear as Rifle-Toting White Man Stalks Black Neighborhoods With Impunity

Ohio Community Lives in Fear as Rifle-Toting White Man Stalks Black Neighborhoods With Impunity
Police say the state’s gun laws have tied their hands despite complaints.

By Tom Boggioni / Raw Story December 5, 2015


A 25-year-old white man got into an altercation with the black owner of a barbershop on Thursday who objected to him stalking predominantly black neighborhoods carrying a rifle slung across his back, reports Cleveland.com.

Saying he has a right under Ohio’s open carry laws to parade about town carrying his gun, Daniel Kovacevic, 25, has been stopped by police multiple times — including near the University of Akron — but police say the state’s gun laws have tied their hands despite citizen complaints.

This racist gun humper has the right under law to terrorize this neighborhood any time he wants to legally!

Hillary’s Gun Control Plan

Hillary’s Gun Control Plan

What Clinton and her Democratic primary rivals would try to do about guns if elected.

By Jamelle Bouie

Clinton has a three-pronged plan.

Bernie Sanders hasn’t released a package for gun control, but his campaign is crafting one, and judging from the present environment in the Democratic Party, it will likely hew to the Clinton and O’Malley models.

Is Bernie finally evolving on guns? He's playing follow the leader with Hillary and MOM that's for sure.

Colorado Planned Parenthood Shooting Is Part Of A Frightening Trend

Colorado Planned Parenthood Shooting Is Part Of A Frightening Trend
Is this the next stage of anti-abortion violence in America?

Chloe Angyal, The Huffington Post

A gunman opened fire in a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Friday, the latest in a string of attacks at the health care provider's clinics this year.

Robert Lewis Dear, 57, who surrendered to authorities after an hourslong standoff, appears to have been motivated by opposition to abortion. Abortion clinics have long been the targets of violence, including bombings, anthrax scares and mass blockades. This year alone, arsonists attacked four Planned Parenthood clinics in Washington, California, Illinois and Louisiana.

In October, NARAL Pro-Choice America launched a petition urging the FBI to investigate the arson attacks, stating that “they’re perpetrated by an extreme minority that’s committed to ruling through fear and intimidation” and urging the FBI to treat them with the gravity warranted by domestic terrorism.

Mayor hints at motive in fatal shooting at Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic

Mayor hints at motive in fatal shooting at Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic
By JENNIFER SHUTT and NOLAN D. MCCASKILL 11/27/15 04:16 PM EST Updated 11/28/15 09:06 AM EST

Three people were killed and nine injured on Friday at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic in a mass shooting and standoff that the organization at first suggested was "domestic terrorism" before replacing that language with "horrific tragedy."

The mayor of Colorado Springs, John Suthers, on Saturday said authorities aren't ready to discuss a possible motive of the gunman but people can make "inferences from where it took place."

How the hell does this crime go from domestic terrorism to horrific tragedy? It looks like a coverup by the news media.
