rightwing fantasy


Here's what the right wants to cling to in the face of reality: "Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican from Texas, says he wishes Dawn Hochsprung, the principal of the Sandy Hook Elementary School, was armed with an M-4 assault rifle when she confronted Adam Lanza, the shooter who killed 20 children.
“I wish to God she had an M-4 in her office locked up so when she heard gunfire she pulls it out and she didn’t have to lunge heroically with nothing in her hands but she takes him out, takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids,” Gohmert said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”"
The rightwing fantasies don't jibe with reality. The 'compound' mentality, where everyone is considered a 'shooter' until identified doesn't work in reality. We need a 'reality' where the truly mentally ill are treated and if necessary confined. The problem is that we need an overwhelming majority to do this, or it becomes an other talking point for the billionaire right.

Reading reports Lanza was on a drug named Fanapt, if so, wonder how many of these new-age physco killers are on drugs pushed by big pharma?

Thanks to this gun sales in the U.S. are surging. And just in time for Xmas. What better way to celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace.
