Main Stream Media are a bunch of twits

Today's news is just a bit overwhelming. Shooting rampage in Alabama with 10 dead, shooting rampage in Germany with 11 dead, Church shooter had "Arsenal" at home.
The definition of arsenal is now
The arsenal in accused gunman Terry Sedlacek's room included two 12-gauge shotguns, a rifle and a box of 550 .22-caliber bullets, according to court documents filed Tuesday.

DAMN, my truck qualifies as an arsenal most days.

From Alabama,
"He sprayed bullets through the town," and "where he got out of his car and fired at police with his automatic weapon" and "One of the spots sprayed with bullets was a hardware store "

I am in no way trying to diminish the suffering of those who are victimized by these shootings. These are all violent and cowardly acts by mentally deficient individuals. A person has to be screwed up in the head to commit any such acts and I am willing to bet that once the investigations continue there will be signs indicating these people were a danger to themselves or others.

Just as I am also sure these will no doubt lead to calls for more gun control. While gun control is rather strict in Germany, there is no way a 17 year old former student could have legally had a gun and murder is already illegal so making these despicable acts more illegal is not going to help matters or prevent them or acts like them in the least bit. But, there are people who will try to further restrict our rights in the name of them feeling safer.

Rant Off.
Rant back on

"Myers, the grieving sheriff's deputy, made an appeal Wednesday to tighten the country's laws on the ownership of automatic weapons."

If in fact this was an automatic weapon and not a semiautomatic being mischaracterized, there are already numerous laws making access to them very controlled. Again, no more regulation of them would have prevented this. I grieve for the deputy and his loss as I also grieve for the families of all those lost in this senseless tragedy. I really do see this as THE EVENT!

Update 2
MSM is headlining gunman with machine gun, Alabama trooper giving press breifing identified the guns as an SKS and Bushmaster with high capacity magazines taped together as well as a shotgun and that he fired "At least 100 round". More hysteria top promotoe the coming ban.
