    Media Quiet About San Antonio Theater Shooting

    On Sunday December 16, 2012, 2 days after the CT shooting, a man went to a restaurant in San Antonio to kill his ex-girlfriend. After he shot her, most of the people in the restaurant fled next door to a theater.

    The gunman followed them and entered the theater so he could shoot more people. He started shooting and people in the theater started running and screaming. It's like the Aurora, CO theater story plus a restaurant!

    Now aren't you wondering why this isn't a lead story in the national media along with the school shooting?

    There was an off duty county deputy at the theater. SHE pulled out her gun and shot the man 4 times before he had a chance to kill anyone. So since this story makes the point that the best thing to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun, the media is treating it like it never happened.

    Only the local media covered it. The city is giving her a medal next week. Just thought you'd like to know

    Yes, I thought I posted something about that a while back.

    Unbelievable that the national press doesn't report these things...or is it?

    Well, I guess this is the process of connecting the dots. Sure, the major media isn't talking about this but either is anyone else. Respectfully, I hear a bunch of chatter about how we need to choose our leaders carefully. Well take a look around. It doesn't really matter which side your voting for, your still voting for "them". Ever wonder why neither side really ever does anything about securing our borders? How about the "War on Drugs"? You can't transport drugs in volume if the borders are secure. A pretend war keeps the prices artificially high. So what's that all about you ask? Well check out who's laundering the drug money. It's our U.S. Banks and Federal Reserve. We're not talk'in chump change here. You may think that's a little bit much but it's common knowledge. Do a couple easy searches and you'll see what I'm talking about. Ever wonder why our prisons are so full of punks who have a fraction of an ounce of dope but Bankers that have laundered hundreds of billions of dollars over decades, haven't spent a day in jail? The Dept. of Justice has slapped a couple of wrists with fines to keep up appearances but it's business as usual. Also, Fast and Furious was a botched plot to have high capacity weapons purchased through U.S. gun dealers, to be found being used in drug crimes and to provide a springboard for further media assault to further erode the 2nd Amendment. It would have worked were it not for a D.O.J. whistle blower. Take a look at compulsory health care mandates. Did you notice how the swing vote came from a newly appointed "Conservative Justice"? What??? There goes another one of your rights! We've been overthrowing governments for a long, long, long time. The only difference now is those doing the dirty work are sleeping in their own beds and eating home cooking while they work.

    Point being, there's a club and we're not in it. It's a lot to process but don't kid yourself, the fix is in folks. This is a good time to figure out what you stand for and to get right with the Lord because there's a reason things just don't make sense.

    ...............maybe the Myans didn't really run out of rocks on 12-21-12. Maybe they had some left and didn't tell anyione......

    Candidly, I know exactly where I stand and what I stand for.

    I've had a wonderful life, I have a good wife and my kids have been successful in their professions. I want for nothing financially. I'm at peace with myself and the Lord.

    I'm not about being a martyr but I am about standing for what I believe in, no matter what the price. Thats about being an American Citizen, proud of my heritage and proud of the country I live in, pay taxes in and defended in my younger years.

    I did catch that one Broz...... Ya know its funny how these events that show the good guys with a gun stoping what could be another mass murder, never see the light of day. There are people who use there weapons everyday to protect themselves and there family but ya never here any of those storys either.

    Heres a couple more ya may not have seen...
    Rep. Introduces Bill to Repeal Presidential Term Limits

    And another that may be good for us, by of all people....... Harry Reid...

    Gun Advocates Celebrate 'Secret' Obamacare Provision Forbidding Exec Order To Regulate Guns And Ammo - Forbes

    It all just pisses me off......the way they are trying to turn law abiding gun owners into criminals because of their "fear".

    Fine....some people choose not to own an AR-15....but it damn sure aint up to them if I choose to own one or not........... Bad part is I was considerin selling mine to get into a Nightforce......now their forcing me to keep it:cool:

    What the mainstream media is doing with the gun control issue is no different from what they have been doing for quite some time. It is a very sophisticated form of propaganda. They and the current far left government are in collusion with a specific ideology, much broader than just gun control, and it isnt what we recognize as American. This was obvious during the presidential election, the Begazi incident, and it will happen in spades with the gun control issue. 60+ million of us have a powerful voice n this country, and what is amazing to me is that only a tiny fraction belongs to the NRA, or any other advocate. Unless we let it be heard it won't matter how this whole current gun control issue lands, 20 years from now, guns will be an oddity of a primitive culture as will the American way of life. IMHO.
