White House petition to deport Piers Morgan
The petition already has 22.962 signatures (and probably more when you read this, after having been up for two days.
I wonder why the pitch for signing omits the strongest reason: "pontificating, underinformed, supercilious twit, whose arrival here was in violation of the legal prohibitions against importing foreign insect pests."
How about if we call assault weapons, family defense weapons. When a roving gang like those of the LA riots or after hurricane Catrina are attacking your family, that is when you need a family defense weapon, and more than ten rounds.

And what good would an assault weapon ban have done in the recent shooting? Would it have been any better if he had gone in with a lever action, a couple revolvers, and a sword? They should come out and say that a ban on all repeaters is one of their reasonable restrictions.

Folks, the REAL gun grabbers know perfectly well that assault weapons bans won't make an iota of improvement in the crime rate. They know that gun free zones simply attract mass shooters and make it easier for 'em to shoot the masses. But THEY DON'T CARE. They want to take away as many guns as possible, make it as difficult as possible to buy guns, register guns if they can and eventually confiscate all guns from non-government-controlled hands.
But they can't say that, so they say other things. What they say may not stand up to scrutiny, it may not even bear any resemblance to reality, but their enablers in the media and the academy will repeat it endlessly anyway. Their hope is that, eventually, with enough repetition, enough weak minds will absorb the (false) message that there will be enough political support for the next step, whatever it happens to be (magazine ban, flash suppressor ban, semiauto ban, handgun ban, registration of scary looking guns, whatever.)

If the killer targeted those first graders because his mom had worked with those kids (and he had major mom issues), perhaps his choice of weapons was also an attack against his mom? She was a gun aficionado, so what better way to attack what she loves than to do something extremely heinous that might be fodder for future gun grabbers?

Anon: I am confused because I have read that his mom did not work at that school and there was no connection to it. I may have missed it but was there a connection to that school?

I think the media originally mis-reported that she worked there. Latest I have seen is that she volunteered in the years prior with the Kindergärtners, but not this year.
"Adam Lanza attended the Sandy Hook School as a boy, according to Flashman, who said Nancy Lanza had volunteered there for several years. Two law enforcement sources said they believed Nancy Lanza had been volunteering with kindergartners at the school. Most of Lanza's victims were first graders sources believe Nancy Lanza may have worked with last year.
Flashman said Nancy Lanza was also good friends with the school’s principal and psychologist—both of whom were killed in the shooting rampage."

Somewhere in England, a village is missing their idiot. Time to send this one back home.
Buh Bye, Piers. Don't let the Statue of Liberty hit your ass on the way out the door, you lying sack of crap.
He's shown he'll stoop to whatever low he can - fake horrific torture photos, illegally break into phone systems, etc. in his efforts to gain notoriety. He leaves no scandal un-turned to use to his sick advantage. Send this limey home.
