Great Article at the woodpile report
You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.
Rahm Emanuel

Man did not enter society to be worse off, or to have fewer rights, but rather to have those rights better secured.
Thomas Paine

Within hours of the Newtown Connecticut school massacre, the anti-gun partisans were "dancing in the blood of children", as Mr. Vanderboegh puts it art-link-symbol-tiny-grey-arrow-only-rev01.gif. Here are some articles collected the day of the crime, some within a couple of hours of the crime. Their sameness is not accidental. Ezra Klein at the Washington Post is first up because the article reveals and promotes what appears to be an arranged and prepositioned press strategy: forget decency, be quick off the mark and exploit without restraint.

When we first collected much of this data, it was after the Aurora, Colo. shootings, and the air was thick with calls to avoid "politicizing" the tragedy. That is code, essentially, for "don't talk about reforming our gun control laws." Let's be clear: That is a form of politicization... It's just a form of politicization favoring those who prefer the status quo to stricter gun control laws.

art-link-symbol-tiny-grey-arrow-only-rev01.gif Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City:

We heard after Columbine that it was too soon to talk about gun laws. We heard it after Virginia Tech. After Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek. And now we are hearing it again. For every day we wait, 34 more people are murdered with guns. Today, many of them were five-year olds.

Remus comment: And so we still wait for Mr. Bloomberg to be a man about, well, anything.

art-link-symbol-tiny-grey-arrow-only-rev01.gif Pres. Obama:

"As a country, we have been through this too many times," Obama said, ticking off a list of recent shootings. "And we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics," he said, in an apparent reference to the influence of the National Rifle Association, a powerful pro-gun lobby, in Congress.
