I missed this...Affirmative ACTION to the rescue!

RACISM found within accidental choking/suffocation?

Call Al SHarpton...and Jessie Jackson and SONICFILTER...

"Black and American Indian/Alaskan Native children are at the highest risk of unintentional suffocation-related death. Black children are twice as likely as white children to die from suffocation"

Wayne LaPierre Speech Was A Total Public Relations Disaster, Say PR Experts
Public relations experts who have experience working with the gun industry expressed horror on Friday afternoon at the National Rifle Association's response to the Newtown, Conn., shootings.
The group's executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, struck a scolding tone on Friday, blaming the video game industry and media for exposing youth to a culture of violence, and calling for armed police or security guards in schools: "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," LaPierre said.
Public relations professionals reached by The Huffington Post said the timing of his message, which broke a week of silence in the wake of the tragic murder of 26 children and adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, could be an irredeemable mistake for the group.
“It was worse than if the NRA had not spoken at all,” said Gene Grabowski, executive vice president of Levick Strategic Communications, a Washington, D.C.-based issues management firm that has worked with firearms manufacturers. "The same message about the culture in another time and place might have made sense, but in context of tragedy, it seemed mean-spirited, cold and misguided."
Grabowski also said the NRA made a mistake by remaining silent on its social media channels last week. After the Sandy Hook tragedy, the organization stopped activity on all of its Twitter, Facebook and YouTube accounts.
The NRA is under close scrutiny this week as the Sandy Hook shooting renews the political and social debate over gun-control laws. The organization is one of the nation's most powerful lobby groups, but its extreme policy positions don't jibe with all gun owners, many of whom support tighter gun-control laws, according to a survey from a prominent Republican pollster in July.
"They have come out too aggressively," said Jonathan Bernstein, president of Los Angeles-based Bernstein Crisis Management. "[I'm] not even sure they have listened to their own members."

Here we go again. Instead of examining the merits of the speech, Liberals start the Diversion Dance once again. PR "experts" are now calling his speech a PR disaster? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Next, you'll be telling us the Hollywood Fashionistas think his tie color was a disaster, he wore the wrong camera makeup and should have had a hairdresser fix his little Alfalfa at the crown.

Maybe the podium was too tall, hmmm? Whaddya think, Jerk?

Oh. And BTW, didn't he say something during that speech about the safety of America's schoolchildren?

Something to think about..

"All Israeli citizens, as well as tourists and foreign workers, are entitled to a free personal protection kit, which includes a gas mask and injectable atropine to combat the effects of nerve gas."

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/health/s...

But wait...

Don't worry Isreal...Chemical weapons are banned...

"The Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction (otherwise known as the Chemical Weapons Convention or CWC) was opened for signature with a ceremony in Paris on 13 January 1993"

When the right was in a rush to pass the PATRIOT Act I warned that they wouldn't necessarily like it when the opposition had it in their hands but y'all are to stupid and short-sighted to consider long term consequences.
Any provision of the Patriot Act that would violate the Constitution would be unconstitutional.

School children are at more risk from cops trying to frame them on bogus drug charges than they are from the remote possibility of a deranged killer. The police are not your friends and do not belong in schools.

Sorry, I didn't think so. I just don't get the point of hi-hacking someone's identity. It would seem that even these morons would want to stand by what they profess. Why would you take the time to express an opinion and then hide behind someone else's name? Only thing worse is to make a comment and then create a bunch of phony Judge-its to praise yourself. There are some psychotic cowards lurking on the right.

Say it ain't so...

Gun control...

Down under...

"Australian Bureau of Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control and the use of firearms in violent crime."

"In fact, the percent of murders committed with a firearm was the highest it had ever been in 2006 (16.3 percent)..."

take'um away boys!

"Even Australia's Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research acknowledges that the gun ban had no significant impact on the amount of gun-involved crime

•In 2006, assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent.

•Sexual assault -- Australia's equivalent term for rape -- increased 29.9 percent.

•Overall, Australia's violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent

•Australian women are now raped over three times as often as American women"

As far as the ahoes here who insist armed guards in schools can protect ou kids, there's this:
Columbine High School Had Armed Guards During Massacre In 1999
""But having armed security on-site failed to prevent the deadliest mass shooting at an American high school.
In 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 15 people and wounded 23 more at Columbine High School. The destruction occurred despite the fact that there was an armed security officer at the school and another one nearby -- exactly what LaPierre argued on Friday was the answer to stopping "a bad guy with a gun."
Deputy Neil Gardner was a 15-year veteran of the Jefferson County, Colo., Sheriff’s Office assigned as the uniformed officer at Columbine. According to an account compiled by the police department, Gardner fired on Harris but was unsuccessful in stopping him:
Gardner, seeing Harris working with his gun, leaned over the top of the car and fired four shots. He was 60 yards from the gunman. Harris spun hard to the right and Gardner momentarily thought he had hit him. Seconds later, Harris began shooting again at the deputy.
After the exchange of gunfire, Harris ran back into the building. Gardner was able to get on the police radio and called for assistance from other Sheriff’s units. "Shots in the building. I need someone in the south lot with me."
The second officer was Deputy Paul Smoker, a motorcycle patrolman who was near the school writing a speeding ticket. When he heard a dispatch of a woman injured at the high school, he responded. He, too, fired at Harris but didn't stop him.""
----------
So much for the myth of the 'protector' with a gun.
NEXT!!
Fuzzy, no detail. Whoever wrote this kerrap is being intentionally disingenuous. Sounds just like you!

Daily News - Columbine High School cop says armed guards at schools coupled with assault weapons ban would keep students safe: http://tinyurl.com/d63djev

"Neil Gardner, who was stationed at the school but was not there when gunmen attacked....
Gardner rushed back to the school after Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold began the gruesome rampage that left 13 people dead and 24 injured on April 20, 1999. Harris unloaded his assault rifle at the cop. Gardner returned fire with his .45-caliber semiautomatic, but missed the gunman.

But he added that if armed cops were assigned to protect children in schools, they shouldn’t be distracted by any other duties."

Yep. You are intentionally being vague and disingenuous showing your Liberal characteristics.

60 yards away? That 180' away firing at a moving target that's firing back. How good is *YOUR* aim, Jerk?

You missed the target on this one, for sure.

Liberals are famous for lying through omission. No more gun deaths in Australia since the Gun Ban went into effect!!! Yay!!

Deaths from stabbing, bombing arson, vehicular assault, pushing off of cliffs, poisonings, beatings...have gone off the charts as a result but, hey, Liberals can jump for joy because they can boldly declare that gun deaths are gone!
