7. Notice how this is being under reported in the MSM?

 

I saw this story lurking on freakrepublic around 1 pm today and they were already saying it was liberals doing it on purpose because of the presidentís announcement on guns tomorrow.

It is still not on the TV news on the east coast.

What was the body count since Newton something like 800 now yet not much said at all on the tv.

The problem is most people don't pay attention and don't give a damn.

Honey Boo Boo and sports and entertainment are more important.

Oh well at least the funeral industry is busy so I guess that is good for jobs But gun & ammo manufactures are doing great and are really getting their money worth from the NRA and the lemmings who support them.

the freaks are really good at keeping up with the latest shootings, perhaps it is how they coordinate their activates or it is a way of bragging and elevating the shooter to martyr status and blaming everything on PBO and liberals too.

Hazard was just one of many yesterday

32. First thread: Hazard not mentioned until 4 hours into the thread

00:43 GMT.
2nd thread: no mention of Hazard
3rd thread: not started until 01:13 GMT.

You seem to be mixing up their discussion of the Missouri shooting with the Hazard one.

34. The St. Louis shooting didn't involve any deaths

The one victim survived, and the gunman is still alive too (having shot himself). If it had not happened at a college, it wouldn't have made national news at all. Your claim that "the MSM" was under-reporting the Hazard shooting was made 20 minutes after the local report, and an hour after it had happened. It still takes time for bureaus that are thousands of miles away to get their reporting of places they've never heard of straight - they have to get it from a local station at first.

27. Update as of 11:10pm EST

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT/WKYT) - Authorities say a deadly shooting on the campus of Hazard Community and Technical College was likely a domestic situation that "just wound up in the parking lot of the community college."

Hazard Police tell us the victims who were killed are Caitlin Cornett, 20, & Jackie Cornett, 53. The victim who was injured is a 17-year-old girl, who was not identified. Police say she was taken to U.K. Hospital by ambulance, because of weather conditions.

They'd probably STILL be just as dead. Fuck the Gun Nuts. This has got to stop. I sure hope the President will begin to do that tomorrow....though it should have been done long ago.

Yeah...Sure.....Let's ALL gun-up and blast the World away!


Folks, I put up a load of video here. Not trying to insult your intelligence. I just hope this post motivates you to contact your elected officials, encouraging them to enact stiffer gun and ammunition control legislation.
