Now It Starts: the Blame Game
When a 22 year old psychotic part time college student opens fire on a crowd of people that includes a U.S. Congresswoman and a federal judge, it's a tragedy. But the even greater tragedy is the subsequent blame game being played by the "mainstream" media and liberal groups everywhere. It's interesting how the Left is blaming the NRA, the Tea Party, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Fox News and other Conservative talk radio and TV hosts for this tragedy when it's a well known fact that the man who shot Gabrielle Giffords is a Leftist. Jared Loughner has a known history of bizarre and erratic behavior that was so disturbing that he was forced to withdraw from community college classes until he could show them a clean mental health evaluation. He also attempted to enlist in the United States Army but was turned down for reasons the Department of the Army will not disclose due to privacy concerns. How this disturbed young man was able to purchase a firearm is anybody's guess, but restricting my or anyone else's right to keep and bear arms is not the answer. And blaming Conservative talk radio and Fox News for this tragedy just shows the Left's collective head needs work.
