A string of shootings in the U.S. in the last month alone has claimed the lives of 53 people:

_MARCH 10, SAMSON, Ala. A gunman kills 10 people and commits suicide in a rampage that spanned two dozen miles across the southern Alabama countryside. Police say Michael McLendon had struggled to keep a job and left behind lists of employers and co-workers he believed had wronged him.

_MARCH 22, OAKLAND, Calif. A man pulled over in a routine traffic stop fatally shoots two officers and then kills two more in a gunfight in which the suspect was also killed. Relatives say Lovelle Mixon, 26, had been frustrated about not finding work and feared returning to jail.

_MARCH 29, SANTA CLARA, Calif. A man shoots and kills his two children and three other relatives, then kills himself at a family housewarming party in an upscale neighborhood. Investigators don't yet know the motive of Devan Kalathat, a 42-year-old engineer at Yahoo.

While this clown Obama is in office no one is safe. He's bankrupted the country and caused record mass killings in less than 3 months. How much longer do the American people have to suffer under this buffoon?

The incident in Pittsburgh yesterday was very telling..
One determined (warped?) individual basically took on an entire city's police force (witnesses counted 100 + squad cars on the scene), armed with an AK and a few pistols. And yet the authorities couldn't take him out , as he was captured alive.
The Government sure is taking note of this. This was one guy , who stated a beef with the Federal Government as his motivation. What if similar minded individuals begin to organize , "network" ?
I don't believe a lot of people fully comprehend just how well-armed much of the populice in this country is.
This incident (and the others listed above) will only give the Feds another lame excuse for their never-ending , always fruitless feeble attempt to disarm us. Hasn't worked before , won't work this time.

The anti gun folks love to blame the gun in cases like these but do they EVER blame the cars for the high death rate on our roads?

The real clowns are people like you who can't see beyond skin color. So, who in the world do you blame 9-1-1 on? The atrocity of our economy which includes lost jobs, homes, and the like is simply the work of the biggest clown known in American history - George Bush and the greedy corporate clowns - apparently like you who can't see beyond the tip of their noses to see that our country is in trouble and will continue to be in trouble until people like you come to realize that we are our brother's keepers regardless of our incomes, status, or position. Everybody wants to blame somebody & that's human nature. Instead of blaming someone, ask what you can do to help turn the situation around. Like the President said, everyone finds fault with what he's doing but no one is offering anything better. So, is griping about the leadership the BEST you have to offer?

Obama is the President. Anything bad that happens is HIS fault. That philosophy was good enough for GW Bush, it's good enough for Obama. Blacks want equal treatment, well here it is.

All those duped tards that got caught up in the media hysteria and voted for Obama will turn on him in a heartbeat when his MASSIVE spending plans fail. He will be hated in a few short months by the American people who will feel they were duped. What happens then? Three years is a long time for a hated President to be in Office. Will something happen before the end of his term?

No. Although you are praying for such. No, nothing will happen to him before the end of his term.

Initial reports by main stream media of any shooting rampage always mention an assault rifle as the weapon used by the killer. Only later do we learn the killer actually used other weapons (such as handguns) to commit his crimes ...

It all ties in with Obama's plan to reinstate the Assault 'Styled' Weapons Ban and the main stream media's role as Obama's water carrier.

Don't believe it?

The treasonous main stream media gleefully reports assault weapons (smuggled across the border from the United States) are to blame for violence taking place in Mexico ...

while Obama and his anti-2nd Amendment, anti-America thugs refuse to enforce immigration laws and push for open borders and amnesty.

Blacks are easily misled. The media told them EVERYTHING was/is G.W. Bush's fault. There are a lot of reasons America finds itself in their present situation. Little of it had/has to do with Bush. But, it's easy for the simple mind to blame all of our nations ills on him. That's how Obama, with all his allies in the Press, got elected. What Obama hasn't figured out yet is that just "not being G.W. Bush" isn't enough. He has to stop blaming and start leading. Is he capable of that? I don't think so.

Wrong again! What makes you think that your vote acutally holds any power around here?Do you know that your forefathers sold you and this country in 1913. You have no real control. The wealthy elite does. THATS whom you should be focusing on. Them and those who run the federal reserve because what they say goes and its been like that for a long long time. You just didn't know it. American politicians have no power. You must realize that there is no more power of the people. The president does not call the shots and have not for a long time. They only do what they are told to do and if they are told to take your guns they will. Will obama be voted out in 4 years? Nope. Watch and see and while your doing that take the time to find out whats really going on around here instead of being distracted by trivial foolish things.

The more you focus on obama and blacks the more that the REAL issues will sneak buy right under your higher IQ noses as it has been.

You are really not as smart as you "claim" to be and YES I am talking about WHITE PEOPLE!

Your freedoms and liberties are non existant. When you were raped of your finances, jobs, and homes that should of given you high IQ folks a clue but noooooooo. Still haven't caught on yet.

But by all means keep focusing on the blacks and obams while you continue to get that slow comfortable screw.

lol. Dumb pucks!
