Totally predictable. In fact someone did.

Watering the Tree of Liberty

Another mass shooting, this time in an elementary school in Connecticut. I am ill with horror.

Have some predictions:

The shooter will turn out to be male.
He will turn out to be white.
He will turn out to be angry at a woman, or women in general
If he's angry at an ex (wife or lover), she either works at the school or he murdered her before going to the school.
More than half of the victims will be female.
The weapons will have been obtained legally.
There will be no legislation to make such weapons harder to obtain, stockpile, or use.
Most reliable of all: gun sales will increase, especially for the particular weapons used in the shooting.

I may not be right about all these predictions, but you can take that final one to the bank.

The gun makers and the gun lobby are for lack of a better word, bulletproof. Nothing hurts them, nothing hurts their sales. The ravenous blood god they serve always rewards them for the steady diet they provide. I'll bet the blood of these innocents was particularly satisfying.

They're going to take our guns away! So what should we do? Invest more money in guns so they have more to take away from us!

It's a sickness. That's all I can think of to describe it, anymore. Gun addiction.

Of course, because the five guns the mother of the killer owned did so much to protect her.

Now if she had ten guns, she'd still be alive today and all this wouldn't have happened. It's just pure, irrefutable RWNJ logic.

I've always had a notion that the base desire that drives the kind of people that would willingly spend their savings on military grade semi and full automatic assault style weapons is the desire to be able to legally take the life of another human being combined with the cowardice of not wanting this killing to be in a combat situation that comes with joining the military.

I worked in a factory once with many men that collected these types of weapons, and to a man one always got the feeling that if they were allowed to kill another human being with said weapons in a complete moral vacuum they would do so without hesitation, and then most likely masturbate after the experience.

I also think that this is one of the major reasons the types that collect these types of weapons always seem to refer to themselves as Libertarians.

Because they know in the type of lawless Utopia that intellectual Libertarianism proselytizes about this act of legally(seeing as there can no law in this stateless type of society)taking another life in non combat situation would very much be open to them.

Its the same reason that I've always thought Joseph Stalin was attracted to Marxism. In a stateless society where there is no hierarchy of power that is ingrained in law, than the most ruthless among us will tend to gravitate to the top.

The ideologue always seems to find the inconsistencies and paradoxes in his own ideology before everyone else does.
