There’s an olsd song i hear in my satellite radio that says…”I been from Kalamazoo to San Berdo, just to get away from you.”

I guess San Berdo just isn’t far enough. The shooting of the totally innocent people , gathered for a Christmas celebration, speaks to the abject crapola we as Americans are subjected to daily from the presidential press core or corps, as the president calls navy medics.

The police hasn’t even cleared the scene and assessed the carnage till ‘ole BO took to the airwaves and began touting new gun control laws. The same baloney we have heard over and over. Isn’t that getting a little stale. Why yes it is, and thank you for asking.

Legislators, state federal and local keep focusing on the same damn thing. Background checks, assault weapons, multi-round capacity magazines. Here’s a news flash folks…IT DOESN’T WORK.

The weapons used by the low life scum bags in San Berdo easily obtained all the weapons and ammo that is specifically prohibited by CA law.

Oh yeah, the area where those fine people were slaughter was a GUN FREE ZONE!!

Just how stupid are our elected representatives…pretty damn stupid.

There are those who say that having armed, concealed carry license holder in the facility would have had no effect on the outcome. Oh yeah, well just how in the hell would anyone know…because no on in the room was armed. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that perhaps the vicious assault on these fine working folks would not have been as tragic as it was. Just a guess but anything would have been an improvement over a “Gun Free Zone.”

As a hard working narcotics and Homicide Detective back in the day the way to prevent crime and clear up cases is through the use of snitches/confidential informants or by what ever name one would wish to call them. Local and State police can and should recruit and utilize informants in order to foresee and prevent this type of terrible situation. The reason I leave the feds out of this is that they have so damn many prohibitions against using snitches when the case involves religion. That’s not to say they (FERDERALIES-in the form of the fbi) will bravely step up to the plate when the operation is taken down and the suspects are in custody. There real good at that.

God Help Us…PEACE.
