Some black guy tried that a few years ago, NRA and Republicans went apoplectic and all.

The amateurs began flogging it MINUTES after it happened, or AS IT WAS happening but the OFFICIAL organs picked up the chase before the Sun came up.

Kevin Martin - BREITBART reporter


Quote:
The shooter, Stephen Craig Paddock, 64.. a white liberal Democrat, hated President Trump and spoke openly about his political views. They are as follows...
Political Views per his Facebook page:
-Proud to Be A Democrat
-The Rachel Maddow Show&#8203;
-Thank You Obama
-Anti-Trump Army
-Progressive Day,
Organizing for Action (Soros)
-Not My President
-Fight Trump
-Boycott All Things Trump
-Impeach Trump
I am sharing, because the media won't.


The so called "Facebook page" attributed to Paddock was created by 4chan member Matthew Poland, who actually popped up from his 4chan anonymity to again point TO the faked page on Martin's thread.

Yup, CONservatives have been doing that all day long.

How far-right trolls named the wrong man as the Las Vegas shooter

I suspect most of those sucky 4chaners were actually operating out of the Kremlin's troll farm. 4chan is totally anonymous so you really have no idea who is posting. Perfect for manipulating public opinion if you are some Russian troll.

The authentic posters are neckbeards, teenagers, closet misogynists, tranny freaks, religious nuts, porn lovers, and lolicons. The modern equivalent of a pirate ship.

If you sell a guy a gun designed to kill people ... if you sell a guy ammo designed to pierce armor ... aren't you kind of saying it's ok to kill a bunch of people?

And those who make these weapons and that ammo legal, aren't they sending that message loud and clear?

I hoped that when Republican congressmen were targeted and shot, Republican congressmen might wake up. But no. And now, with this record-breaking massacre ... dare we hope?

Those high capacity clips and semi autos that are easily converted to fully auto are designed to be be used solely by game hunters for sport. And hence gathering food to feed the family.... I suppose. Fergot about target shooters--forgive me.

Them semis and autos make the bullets expel faster soze one can bring down the targeted game in a sporting fashion.

Plus it helps to produce hamburger if one might be a poor marksman-- instead of the desired upon steaks for those who shoot straight. All for the sport of hunting remember.....

Or a well regulated militia. Mustn’t fergit to include them guyz our nation depends upon for its security and all.

I dare to disagree, my lanky friend. The real reason is simple - pursuit of happiness.

In fact, the NRA calls the fully automatic setting the "Happy Switch". It's a Constitutionally guaranteed right!

Fully automatic happy switch

I suppose the most likely explanation for Paddock's actions is that he wished for us to remember his name.

That is an explanation for atrocities that goes back to at least 356 BC when Herostratus burned down the Temple of Artemis in Ephesis [Great is Diana of the Ephesians!]. He just wanted people forever to remember his name as the person who destroyed one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

The name of Herostratus has been preserved in the historical records, but very few people remember him now!
