The CNN Town Hall Only Demonized The NRA Whilst Ignoring The Systemic Failure That Could Have Prevented The Parkland Shooting, by Duane Norman

How much longer will CNN survive if it keeps putting up this kind of horseshit? SLL says the over/under is 3 years. Gambling laws prevent SLL from taking your bets. From Duane Norman at fmshooter.com:

Last week, CNN hosted a town hall with the survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting.

Sheriff Israel and Dana Loesch.

Among the attendees of the town hall were Senators Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson, Rep. Ted Deutch, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch.

In particular, we’ll focus on the segment featuring both Israel and Loesch fielding questions from the audience.

After Emma Gonzalez, a senior at Stoneman Douglas High, asked whether or not Loesch believes “that it should be harder to obtain the semi-automatic weapons and the modifications for these weapons to make them fully automatic“, Loesch confirmed she agrees with common sense:

I don’t believe that this insane monster should have ever been able to obtain a firearm, ever. I do not think that he should have gotten his hands on any kind of weapon…

However, after exposing an uncomfortable truth found within our system, the audience shouted her down:

It is not federal law for states to report convictions to the NICS system. It’s not federally mandated. That’s the big question and I wish that this network had also covered this more, as other media networks would have covered it.

Throughout the night, Loesch pointed out the numerous inconsistencies with our system:

How was he [the Parkland shooter] able to pass a background check?He was able to pass a background check because we have a system that’s flawed. The Southerland Springs murderer was able to pass a background check because the Air Force did not report that record.

No matter how hard Loesch hammered the point, she was ignored and instead forced to constantly be on the defensive.

…We have to develop better protocol to follow up on red flags. This monster carrying bullets to school, carrying knifes to school, assaulting students, assaulting his parents, 39 visits in the past year.

Instead of discussing any of Loesch’s suggestions, the audience instead saw it better to shout her down when she made valid points. The questions directed toward Loesch only demanded her stances on nothing-issues for reactionary politics… not for any actual progress.

Loesch, offering solutions, was instead only lambasted and unfairly accosted.

LOESCH: I want to make a couple — one point. This is the eighth tragedy, the eighth tragedy where we have seen numerous tips that have been reported and red flagged — I mean — are we talking about prevention or not? I mean I think it’s incredibly important —

(BOOING)

  10. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    • I’m afraid there’s not much you can do other than perhaps send emails to sights that post your stuff without your consent. It’s kind of the Wild West as far as reposts go. I repost and get reposted constantly, and I just accept it as part of the internet.
