Blame shooter, not guns

January 15, 2011
The Intelligencer / Wheeling News-Register

The tragedy in Arizona has been a hot topic on radio and TV. The problem I have is how some are making this political. There are some blaming talk radio, Fox News, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, the Tea Party or Glenn Beck. No one is blaming the actual shooter. All of this is just piss poor journalism, which has been going on for some time now. There is no evidence proving any connection between this disturbed individual and anyone mentioned above. Though there are some reporting this and people out there are taking it as fact. I urge anyone interested in this to do some research. This person has had some sort of obsession with the Congresswoman since 2007. If my facts are correct, this was way before the Tea Party and before Sarah Palin was even known outside of Alaska.

We have to stop blaming someone else for what people do. Is there no personal responsibility left in this country? No one listed above bought the gun, bought the ammunition, loaded the clip or pulled the trigger! I am waiting for the talk to be ramped up about more gun control. That's not the solution.

It always comes down to this. Is our system flawed? Yes! Keep this in mind, 84,999,987 firearm owners didn't kill someone yesterday!
