Discussion: Obama On Planned Parenthood Shooting: 'We Can’t Let It Become Normal'

Discussion for article #243241

I love you Mr.President and I agree. But this will happen again and again because any crazy sonofabitch can go out and kill hundreds of people any time they feel like it because they can buy the killer guns and ammunition just as easy as you and I can go to a drugstore and buy toothpaste.


“we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.”

Well said Mr. President! Well said!


The President is correct. Our gun safety policies are a disaster.
The simple minded, no gun control" montra is allowing mass murder on a near daily basis.


Take all the guns away. It’s the only solution endorsed by the NRA.

And to think, the gop/bags, especially the ones running for the primary nomination are afraid of the Syrian refugees…when they should be afraid of white, male, racist, christians! Oh wait, that’s what they are!


Until voters get totally disgusted by the current rightwing GOP and start electing more Democrats, thus winning back common sense in both the House and the Senate and gaining a lot more governerships, this madness will persist.

The Aussies, with a conservative government, for cryin’ out loud, actually did something about the carnage in their country with stricter gun laws, and it worked. Maybe we’ll be so lucky some day!


Actually, this particular kind of massacre would happen less frequently if the Republican party would stop demonizing Planned Parenthood, thereby putting a big fat target on the backs of the organization’s employees. The GOP is totally responsible for this madness generally and this attack in particular. Unlike ISIS, they don’t have the balls to take credit for their mayhem.


“This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal,” the statement said. “If we truly care about this – if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience – then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.”

We don’t yet know what this particular gunman’s so-called motive was for shooting twelve people, or for terrorizing an entire community, when he opened fire with an assault weapon and took hostages at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado.

Thank you, President Barack Obama!!


Yep – except, the home-grown terrorists aren’t after the uber-christianists (or their enablers) like those running for the GOP nomination. They’re after us sane people like you and me. That’s why Carly and Marco and Rand and Mike and Donnie and the rest of them don’t give a shit except to ramp up the crazy even more.



Unfortunately, the conservative movement isn’t interested in anything but the promotion of fear. Salvation is for their evangelical lemmings. The two have a symbiotic relationship.


Throw Israel in there and we’d have a full-blown End Times party.


Actually, they are scared to death of those people…that’s why every GOP candidate has been completely mum on this topic. They are afraid of offending exactly crazy loons, exactly like this asshole shooter, because those are their base! So instead, they are taking the path of saying nothing.


It would also be helpful if the media would start calling these events terrorist events as they in fact are. All this talk about Syria refugees and the need to controll their access to the U.S.A. while at the same time no concern for home grown terrorists easy access to military style weapons that result in terrorist attacks like this one.


As Ted Cruz welcomes the endorsement of Troy Newman

Newman argued in his 2003 book, “Their Blood Cries Out,” that the biblical duty of government “rightly involves executing convicted murderers, including abortionists, for their crimes in order to expunge bloodguilt from the land and people.” - See more at: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/cruz-touts-endorsement-radical-anti-choice-activist-troy-newman?_ga=1.60259949.194490931.1448465986#sthash.1x6V9RCD.dpuf


How about coming out with a speech from the WH that calls out the asshole right wing people in this Nation.

1.Fox News,Breitbart, and other Media dish out lies and hate which = incitement.Bigoted greedy hateful incitement.
2.Right wing Terrorism is alive in USA
3.Arrest these white bigot groups like KKK, etc.
4.Start jailing some people.To many of these crackpots threaten violence typing these threats ONLINE.Why are they not being rounded up and put in jail where they belong.
5.Start calling out these asshole politicians who are a part-cause of the right wing extremism.



Aussies have neither a Second Amendment which empowers people to shoot at others nor do they have a gun lobby which gets rich on feeding the paranoia of a lot of gun owners.


Go to the fox news comments area, they are basically dancing in the streets.

No doubt preachers all over America already rewriting their sermons to praise the shooter, the only thing they regret is the cop that got killed, who would be alive if he had stayed in his jurisdiction.


Good point. And our Second Amendment wouldn’t be a problem if it weren’t currently interpreted in an insane way.


Offered without additional comment.

“This is the consequence of the irresponsible war on women’s rights by fanatics, the personhood legislation, the lie about right to life. These people don’t respect life they want to harness control of women as they drag us back into the dark ages to fulfill their antiquated agenda. Not a single “right to lifer” will address the fact that personhood legislation fails time after time as women vote - even in conservative states to preserve their rights and not be subordinated to a fetus. These people are ugly. What does their bible say now? Roe V Wade is decades old, idiots on a crusade to sabotage women. They need to go away. These old men should refrain from sex and own their misogyny and hatred of women before there are other casualties - the consequence of hate speech.” ~ Bruce Bartlett
