Senator Accuses Anti-Gun Group of Exploiting Fort Hood Massacre
An anti-gun group is using the shooting rampage Thursday at Fort Hood as an example in its campaign against pending gun rights legislation, drawing accusations of exploitation from a Republican senator.Helmke, in his latest Huffpo rant, goes on about depriving veterans of their firearm rights. What he neglects to mention is that the shooter wasn't declared mentally incompetent in any way and that the law the Brady Bunch opposes wouldn't have effected him at all. Never mind the fact that Paul blatantly lies:
language to automatically restore access to guns to veterans designated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Justice Department as "mentally incapacitated" or "mentally incompetent."Sorry, no. It restores the rights of individuals who have successfully completed mental health treatment. A subtlety that would destroy Helmke's premise. But honesty has never been a strong suit w/ them.
Then we go to the Joyce Foundation.
Tragic Fort Hood Shooting Shows Threat From Easy Access To Powerful Handguns, Even For Members Of Military
Such a restrictive policy against carrying guns, even for soldiers who are prepared for combat, should give guidance to lawmakers about the need to better control access to firearms for civilians.
Do these people cheer like an election celebration when they hear tragedies like this on the news? They really do seem to revel in the deaths of innocents.
