Where did Breivik get his weapons?

The United States weapon market is a problem. It is a problem internationally as well. All one has to do is look to Mexico and realize what the USA is doing to that country.

If one looks at the history of massacres they are primarily affiliated with the military. There are very few where civilians are actually killing many people. It is a modern era phenomena. 

Previous to Breivik, there are no mass murders in Norway. Some in Northern Ireland, but, that is affiliated with an armed resistance, not a single gunman with a cause.

There is a paradigm shift from military massacres whereby they have weapons to carry out such heinous acts, but, the mass murderers in a domestic circumstance is a modern day problem. They are increasing, too.

Individuals never had access to these type of weapons before. They most certainly did not.

There have been massacres in other countries related to anti-semitism. There were the massacres in Bosnia. But, for the most part the use of these weapons, outside of military use, didn't occur in the USA before. They were always viewed as cop killers.

The Assault Weapons Ban would have outlawed the guns used in Colorado. It expired September of 2004, just before Bush was re-elected. The massacres before that were virtually absent.

March 25, 2006, Seattle, Washington, Capital Hill Massacre killing six and wounding two.

April 16, 2007, Blacksburg, Virginia, Virginia Tech Massacre killing 32 and wounding numerous others. In 2007 this was the worst peacetime massacre in the country.

Got that? The Virginia Tech Massacres was the worst in the history of the country in 2007.

Should I make that point again? The Virginia Tech Massacre was the worst in the history of the country. It happened in 2007. The worst massacre in the country up to 2007 occurred at Virginia Tech University AFTER THE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN WAS LIFTED !!!!!!!!

These were the weapons purchased in the USA at a gun show at the Columbine massacre in 1999. Fifteen dead including the two shooters. They killed themselves.

During the shootings, Harris carried a 12-gauge Savage-Springfield 67H pump-action shotgun, which he discharged 25 times and a Hi-Point 995 Carbine 9 mm carbine with thirteen 10-round magazines, which was fired 96 times.
Klebold carried a 9 mm Intratec TEC-9 semi-automatic handgun manufactured by Navegar, Inc. with one 52-, one 32-, and one 28-round magazine and a 12-gauge Stevens 311D double-barreled sawed-off shotgun. Klebold's primary weapon was the TEC-9 handgun, which was fired 55 times.

November 5, 2009, Fort Hood Massacre, 13 dead, one was a civilian, 30 wounded.

January 8, 2011, Tuscan Supermarket Massacre, 6 dead, 19 wounded.

July 20, 2012, Colorado Movie Theater Massacre, 12 dead, 58 wounded.

Ever since the Assault Weapons Ban was lifted the occurrence of mass killings has increased and the number of victims involved in the massacres have increased. 

These weapons should never be in the hands of civilians. They don't belong anywhere outside the military without justification and certainly not without special permits and training.

It has gotten worse since the Assault Weapons Ban has been lifted. There are also more police officers killed since than as well.

The Columbine Massacre was the only one of its kind during the Assault Weapons Ban. It was due to irresponsible sales of guns.

It is happening too often. There are too many guns on the street and they are easy to obtain.

No excuses anymore. There are over 300 million guns in the USA that are non-military issue. That would mean one gun per person of any age in the USA. I don't own a gun. I know a lot of people that don't own a gun.

Where are all the guns in this country? If they can't be kept out of the hands of the crazies, then they should not be sold.

How convenient to be crazy and under the radar.

Colorado Shooting Suspect Was A Psychiatric Patient (click title to entry - thank you)

..."The materials contained in that package include communications from Mr. Holmes to Dr. Fenton that Mr. Holmes asserts are privileged," said the document filed by public defenders representing Holmes. "Mr. Holmes was a psychiatric patient of Dr. Fenton, and his communications with her are protected."
In response, prosecutors asked for Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester to deny the request by Holmes, saying it contained inaccuracies including claims of media leaks by government officials that in reality may have been fabricated by news organizations....

Three Little Words - "America For Sale" - Thanks, Mitt


Perhaps the nation needs to talk about the Boston infrastructure that Bain Capital did not build. Maybe we need to talk about The Hancock Tower and how Bain Capital does not even own their own address at 200 Clarendon Street. Maybe we need to talk about "The T" in Boston and how it facilitates one of the most successful subway systems in the world.

There is plenty in the shadow of Willard Mitt Romney we can talk about on how the monies he made was because of what other people built!!!!!!

One other thing, does The Wall Street Journal run out of titles for their articles?

Four Little Words (at title)

Why the Obama campaign is suddenly so worried.

Four Little Words (click here)

Reagan deliberately confronted criminal regimes with what they 

fear most: the publicly spoken truth about their moral weakness.

Maybe three words at a time is all The Wall Street Journal can handle these days. 

President Obama is the infrastructure president. He doesn't want bridges collapsing. He finds this point in time in the USA as an opportunity to return vitality to the American infrastructure. You know, the infrastructure that attracts companies to do business in the USA. He is THAT President.

I do believe we know if the trains don't run and the planes can take off and land, business doesn't happen. 

If 200 Clarendon Street didn't exist, which many debate may not have been a good idea anyway, Bain Capital won't have an address of prestige. If the roads surrounding 200 Clarendon Place didn't exist the trudging through mud, given its the Back Bay in Boston, would be worse than trudging through a 3 foot snow storm on the way to The T. Even though "The Big Dig" was a lot of trouble, it is finally opened with a total cost of $14.6 billion US of which didn't all come from the City of Boston treasury and certainly not "Paid for by Bain."

If we want to talk about whom exactly makes the business and transportation happen in the USA, then we can talk. Boston is incredible infrastructure heavy. There are huge construction projects at any point in time in Boston. If Romeny and the Wall Street Journal want to say this infrastructure is unnecessary, then they need to reassess the NATION they have to thank for their millions and billions US!

By the way, how are the ports of the country doing?  Busy? I mean CHINA IS CALLING!!

Those longshoremen are something, aren't they?
