Hidden message in official NRA response to Conn. shooting.
Ok.... Guys this was too interesting for me not to send out. This is a direct transcript from the NRA response to the Sandy Hook shooting posted on nranews.com.

"And here's another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal: There exists in this country a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people.
Through vicious, violent video games with names like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse. And here's one: it's called Kindergarten Killers. It's been online for 10 years. How come my research department could find it and all of yours either couldn't or didn't want anyone to know you had found it?"

I want you to look at how the last sentence of the first paragraph and the first sentence of the second paragraph are arranged. These paragraphs for one are supposed to be one idea yet they have separated them. Even more obvious is that "Through vicious, violent video games with names like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse" is not even a properly formatted sentence. It isn't a complete thought. I believe this was not a mistake.

Now read the first paragraph again but change the word "industry" to "government". "Shadow government". The word shadow is there and by all accounts what has been said for years and years is that there is a shadow government that controls our nations government. Could this just have been a formatting mistake? I don't think so.

If this does mean something and it is embedded within the NRA response to the Sandy Hook shooting. I believe it to be very significant that they use the wording of "violence against its own people". If this is not a formatting mistake then this is a message that our government was behind Sandy Hook.

If it is just a formatting mistake then it means nothing. If it was intentional then... Maybe I'm stretching it to replace a word.

So let us assume I am stretching it. Lets not change the word this time. Lets leave it as "shadow industry".

What is a industry that the "crazy" conspiracy people say is really in control?

The banking industry.

I think we see proof of this everyday so I don't think we would even question this to be true.

But a "banking industry" that "SELLS, and SOWS, violence against its own people".

Notice again the comma between sows and violence. Proper English formatting again states that (correct me if I'm wrong) there should be no comma in this location. What is being sold and sown? Violence is being sold and sown. There should be no comma. But there is and it separates the words "violence against its own people" in reference to a shadow industry or maybe even a shadow government within a NRA response to the Sandy Hook shooting.

Am I out of line in saying this is significant in some way? Maybe I am. I don't know but it seems to back up many theories that many people have.

I haven't dissected the whole address in this way but it may be interesting to see if there are other formatting errors that don't really fit the English rules. If there are others maybe you can write this example as just a bad writer that doesn't know how to properly follow English rules thought in school but the effort to use the perfect word and perfect format to say it in in the rest of this document speaks volumes to me.

What do you think?

Re: Hidden message in official NRA response to Conn. shooting.
The National Rifle Association's 4 million mothers, fathers, sons and daughters join the nation in horror, outrage, grief and earnest prayer for the families of Newtown, Connecticut ... who suffered such incomprehensible loss as a result of this unspeakable crime.

Out of respect for those grieving families, and until the facts are known, the NRA has refrained from comment. While some have tried to exploit tragedy for political gain, we have remained respectfully silent.

Now, we must speak ... for the safety of our nation's children. Because for all the noise and anger directed at us over the past week, no one — nobody — has addressed the most important, pressing and immediate question we face: How do we protect our children right now, starting today, in a way that we know works?

The only way to answer that question is to face up to the truth. Politicians pass laws for Gun-Free School Zones. They issue press releases bragging about them. They post signs advertising them.

And in so doing, they tell every insane killer in America that schools are their safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk.

How have our nation's priorities gotten so far out of order? Think about it. We care about our money, so we protect our banks with armed guards. American airports, office buildings, power plants, courthouses — even sports stadiums — are all protected by armed security.

We care about the President, so we protect him with armed Secret Service agents. Members of Congress work in offices surrounded by armed Capitol Police officers.

Yet when it comes to the most beloved, innocent and vulnerable members of the American family — our children — we as a society leave them utterly defenseless, and the monsters and predators of this world know it and exploit it. That must change now!

The truth is that our society is populated by an unknown number of genuine monsters — people so deranged, so evil, so possessed by voices and driven by demons that no sane person can possibly ever comprehend them. They walk among us every day. And does anybody really believe that the next Adam Lanza isn't planning his attack on a school he's already identified at this very moment?

How many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame — from a national media machine that rewards them with the wall-to-wall attention and sense of identity that they crave — while provoking others to try to make their mark?

A dozen more killers? A hundred? More? How can we possibly even guess how many, given our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill?

And the fact is, that wouldn't even begin to address the much larger and more lethal criminal class: Killers, robbers, rapists and drug gang members who have spread like cancer in every community in this country. Meanwhile, federal gun prosecutions have decreased by 40% — to the lowest levels in a decade.

So now, due to a declining willingness to prosecute dangerous criminals, violent crime is increasing again for the first time in 19 years! Add another hurricane, terrorist attack or some other natural or man-made disaster, and you've got a recipe for a national nightmare of violence and victimization.

And here's another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal: There exists in this country a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people.

Through vicious, violent video games with names like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse. And here's one: it's called Kindergarten Killers. It's been online for 10 years. How come my research department could find it and all of yours either couldn't or didn't want anyone to know you had found it?

Then there's the blood-soaked slasher films like "American Psycho" and "Natural Born Killers" that are aired like propaganda loops on "Splatterdays" and every day, and a thousand music videos that portray life as a joke and murder as a way of life. And then they have the nerve to call it "entertainment."

But is that what it really is? Isn't fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?

In a race to the bottom, media conglomerates compete with one another to shock, violate and offend every standard of civilized society by bringing an ever-more-toxic mix of reckless behavior and criminal cruelty into our homes — every minute of every day of every month of every year.

A child growing up in America witnesses 16,000 murders and 200,000 acts of violence by the time he or she reaches the ripe old age of 18.

And throughout it all, too many in our national media ... their corporate owners ... and their stockholders ... act as silent enablers, if not complicit co-conspirators. Rather than face their own moral failings, the media demonize lawful gun owners, amplify their cries for more laws and fill the national debate with misinformation and dishonest thinking that only delay meaningful action and all but guarantee that the next atrocity is only a news cycle away.

The media call semi-automatic firearms "machine guns" — they claim these civilian semi-automatic firearms are used by the military, and they tell us that the .223 round is one of the most powerful rifle calibers ... when all of these claims are factually untrue. They don't know what they're talking about!

Worse, they perpetuate the dangerous notion that one more gun ban — or one more law imposed on peaceful, lawful people — will protect us where 20,000 others have failed!

As brave, heroic and self-sacrificing as those teachers were in those classrooms, and as prompt, professional and well-trained as those police were when they responded, they were unable — through no fault of their own — to stop it.

As parents, we do everything we can to keep our children safe. It is now time for us to assume responsibility for their safety at school. The only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Would you rather have your 911 call bring a good guy with a gun from a mile away ... or a minute away?

Now, I can imagine the shocking headlines you'll print tomorrow morning: "More guns," you'll claim, "are the NRA's answer to everything!" Your implication will be that guns are evil and have no place in society, much less in our schools. But since when did the word "gun" automatically become a bad word?

A gun in the hands of a Secret Service agent protecting the President isn't a bad word. A gun in the hands of a soldier protecting the United States isn't a bad word. And when you hear the glass breaking in your living room at 3 a.m. and call 911, you won't be able to pray hard enough for a gun in the hands of a good guy to get there fast enough to protect you.

So why is the idea of a gun good when it's used to protect our President or our country or our police, but bad when it's used to protect our children in their schools?

They're our kids. They're our responsibility. And it's not just our duty to protect them — it's our right to protect them.

You know, five years ago, after the Virginia Tech tragedy, when I said we should put armed security in every school, the media called me crazy. But what if, when Adam Lanza started shooting his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday, he had been confronted by qualified, armed security?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5201883


Everything he(NRA spokesman) tries to say about the entertainment industry is completely unfounded because all those violent video games and movies(even much, much worse movies in terms of violent imagery) are available in plenty of other countries that have very little homicide and in some cases little to no gun crime.

The scale in which people die to firearms, in the modern "civilized" world pales to the numbers produced in the United States all by itself.

No other country comes close, yet a large number of them have the same forms of entertainment, and the same if not more liberal laws on said entertainment.

Yet when it comes to the most beloved, innocent and vulnerable members of the American family — our children — we as a society leave them utterly defenseless, and the monsters and predators of this world know it and exploit it. That must change now!

The truth is that our society is populated by an unknown number of genuine monsters — people so deranged, so evil, so possessed by voices and driven by demons that no sane person can possibly ever comprehend them. They walk among us every day. And does anybody really believe that the next Adam Lanza isn't planning his attack on a school he's already identified at this very moment?

How many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame — from a national media machine that rewards them with the wall-to-wall attention and sense of identity that they crave — while provoking others to try to make their mark?

A dozen more killers? A hundred? More? How can we possibly even guess how many, given our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill?

And the fact is, that wouldn't even begin to address the much larger and more lethal criminal class: Killers, robbers, rapists and drug gang members who have spread like cancer in every community in this country. Meanwhile, federal gun prosecutions have decreased by 40% — to the lowest levels in a decade.

So now, due to a declining willingness to prosecute dangerous criminals, violent crime is increasing again for the first time in 19 years! Add another hurricane, terrorist attack or some other natural or man-made disaster, and you've got a recipe for a national nightmare of violence and victimization.

And here's another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal: There exists in this country a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people.

Through vicious, violent video games with names like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse. And here's one: it's called Kindergarten Killers. It's been online for 10 years. How come my research department could find it and all of yours either couldn't or didn't want anyone to know you had found it?

Then there's the blood-soaked slasher films like "American Psycho" and "Natural Born Killers" that are aired like propaganda loops on "Splatterdays" and every day, and a thousand music videos that portray life as a joke and murder as a way of life. And then they have the nerve to call it "entertainment."

But is that what it really is? Isn't fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?

In a race to the bottom, media conglomerates compete with one another to shock, violate and offend every standard of civilized society by bringing an ever-more-toxic mix of reckless behavior and criminal cruelty into our homes — every minute of every day of every month of every year.

A child growing up in America witnesses 16,000 murders and 200,000 acts of violence by the time he or she reaches the ripe old age of 18.

And throughout it all, too many in our national media ... their corporate owners ... and their stockholders ... act as silent enablers, if not complicit co-conspirators. Rather than face their own moral failings, the media demonize lawful gun owners, amplify their cries for more laws and fill the national debate with misinformation and dishonest thinking that only delay meaningful action and all but guarantee that the next atrocity is only a news cycle away.

The media call semi-automatic firearms "machine guns" — they claim these civilian semi-automatic firearms are used by the military, and they tell us that the .223 round is one of the most powerful rifle calibers ... when all of these claims are factually untrue. They don't know what they're talking about!

Worse, they perpetuate the dangerous notion that one more gun ban — or one more law imposed on peaceful, lawful people — will protect us where 20,000 others have failed!

As brave, heroic and self-sacrificing as those teachers were in those classrooms, and as prompt, professional and well-trained as those police were when they responded, they were unable — through no fault of their own — to stop it.

As parents, we do everything we can to keep our children safe. It is now time for us to assume responsibility for their safety at school. The only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Would you rather have your 911 call bring a good guy with a gun from a mile away ... or a minute away?

Now, I can imagine the shocking headlines you'll print tomorrow morning: "More guns," you'll claim, "are the NRA's answer to everything!" Your implication will be that guns are evil and have no place in society, much less in our schools. But since when did the word "gun" automatically become a bad word?

A gun in the hands of a Secret Service agent protecting the President isn't a bad word. A gun in the hands of a soldier protecting the United States isn't a bad word. And when you hear the glass breaking in your living room at 3 a.m. and call 911, you won't be able to pray hard enough for a gun in the hands of a good guy to get there fast enough to protect you.

So why is the idea of a gun good when it's used to protect our President or our country or our police, but bad when it's used to protect our children in their schools?

They're our kids. They're our responsibility. And it's not just our duty to protect them — it's our right to protect them.

You know, five years ago, after the Virginia Tech tragedy, when I said we should put armed security in every school, the media called me crazy. But what if, when Adam Lanza started shooting his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday, he had been confronted by qualified, armed security?

The govt could care less about protecting children, they want Americans disarmed for other malevolent reasons. After all, how do they justify killing women/children by the thousands when they want to take over control of the resources on foreign soil.

He called for armed guards in the public schools. Next they'll be in theaters, next in the malls, next they'll have them at highway checkpoints.

So how's it supposed to be, again? Can you people hear yourselves agreeing with someone who is recommending a police state? YES!! AND WHERE DO YOU BEGIN THIS GRADUAL TRANSITION?? BY ACCLAMATING THE CHILDREN FIRST!!!

Wake the F*()&^ UP, people!!

In my country you can't even bear a knife if its blade is longer than the width of your hand, you may spend few hours with the cops for it, and you wont see the knife ever again. But in another hand, you can easily find AK and RPGs in some suburbs, cheap !

Remember this: laws apply only for honnest and "poor" people, in every country. Please if they come to steal you a single bullet from your personal defensive pack, deliver it between the eyes.

Don't you dare say the video games will corrupt the human race... Not in the mood to laugh.

The 2nd Amendment is the right to bear arms mainly to protect
us from a tyrannical government. Today we are depending on a tyrannical government to protect our 2nd Amendment
rights with the only recourse we think we have is voting
the tyrannical representatives out of office. Something
Dont add up here or you really think they will just do
the right thing?

What do you think?


Everything he(NRA spokesman) tries to say about the entertainment industry is completely unfounded because all those violent video games and movies(even much, much worse movies in terms of violent imagery) are available in plenty of other countries that have very little homicide and in some cases little to no gun crime.

The scale in which people die to firearms, in the modern "civilized" world pales to the numbers produced in the United States all by itself.

No other country comes close, yet a large number of them have the same forms of entertainment, and the same if not more liberal laws on said entertainment.




LOL. I love how sheep spit out these generalizations without backing them up.

First off- more people die in auto accidents as the result of speeding. When are we going to outlaw cars or implement a new law to prevent cars from exceeding 55mph? Or better yet, let's do incremental bans and start off with just a federal speed limit. LoL

2nd off- more people died in 2010 from baseball bats than guns. baseball bats serve no real purpose in society. We should ban their production. Rather, you should need a special license to purchase a bat.
