Congressional gun rights supporters showed an increased willingness Tuesday to consider new legislation to control firearms in the aftermath of the Connecticut school shootings — provided it also addresses mental health issues and the impact of violent video games.
I will say that I would be willing to support a law that flat-out bans people on psychotropic meds from owning guns. The video game angle is interesting, since video games were invented to help soldiers become desensitized to violence and prepare for battle, but that concern is not under the purview of congress. That aside, my bet is that soft-bellied sacks of canine fecal matter that are currently masquerading as conservative political “leaders” will fall all over themselves to compromise on this issue and sell out their base, all in the name of bipartisanship.
What’s more interesting, though, are the circumstances that brought about this gun control debate in the first place:
The father of Newtown Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is Peter Lanza who is a VP and Tax Director at GE Financial. The father of Aurora Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes is Robert Holmes, the lead scientist for the credit score company FICO. Both men were to testify before the US Sentate in the ongoing LIBOR scandal. The London Interbank Offered Rate, known as Libor, is the average interest rate at which banks can borrow from each other. 16 international banks have been implicated in this ongoing scandal, accused of rigging contracts worth trillions of dollars. HSBC has already been fined $1.9 billion and three of their low level traders arrested.
Well, we don’t hear the media report on this, do we? Of course, the media was complicit in covering up the Aurora, Colorado shooting.* Now, perhaps, it’s complicit in sensationalizing a tragedy for political gain, a la Rahm Emmanuel style.
Perhaps both these shootings were done, in part, to intimidate two of the witnesses in the LIBOR scandal (which makes the fraud committed by, say, Goldman-Sachs look like child’s play). LIBOR involves some serious fraud, and one thing that has been repeatedly demonstrated over the last four years is that the US government and various European governments are all highly invested in covering up any and all fraud that the banks have committed. The current monetary system, and consequently most economic systems are on the verge of collapse, which is why the banks—especially the central banks—are constantly hiding everything they do. The system is broken, and nearing collapse, and every banker and politician is trying to pretend otherwise so as to rip of the idle class a little bit more for a little bit longer.
One way to ensure that fraud continues is to intimidate witnesses (Chicago style, of course). Bonus points if you can do so in a manner that convinces people to give up their right of self-defense while simultaneously using a tragedy to distract them from the fact that their wealth and freedom is being taken from them by politicians and banksters.
Anyway my thought is that Holmes is possibly guilty but is definitely being railroaded. Lanza may be a bit of good luck for the government in their attempt to strip people of their right to self-defense, but I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Lanza got the terror cell treatment.** No matter how you slice this story, it’s simply too coincidental for two witnesses to the same scandal to both have sons arrested for mass murder within months of each other. Something is definitely rotten here.
* Yes, it’s a coverup. Direct eyewitness reports and first response reports said there were multiple shooters, at least one of whom was dressed in dark camo.
** The terror cell treatment is when a domestic defense agency, like the FBI, goes around looking for potential terrorists and, in the course of building a case against said potential terrorists, provides them with weapons, a detailed plan of attack, and basically strong-arms them into attempting to carry the plan out. This is highly immoral, and quite crazy to boot, because all the FBI is doing is trying to prevent a terrorist attack that, essentially, they’ve caused.
