Dem Gov Says Newtown 'Good' Because it Was So 'Horrific'

After the heinous shooting in Newtown, CT, it never ceases to amaze me how the political left continues to salivate over the tragedy, and keep the gun control dialogue alive. They must be desperate. After all, the number of gun control mentions in the news decreased dramatically after the holidays. It’s not resonating. However, some in the Democratic Party, like former PA Governor Ed Rendell, still wish to see new gun regulations, before the shiftable sands of public opinion switch on them again. It wasn’t delivered without a tinge of depravity.

On today’s broadcast of MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner (Wagner is a former cultural correspondent for the progressive Center for American Process), the former governor said: ”The good thing about Newtown is, it was so horrific that I think it galvanized Americans to a point where the intensity on our side is going to match the intensity on their side.” Matthew Balan at NewsBusters reported that “host Alex Wagner, who called for a repeal of the Second Amendment on Bill Maher’s HBO program in 2011, set up Rendell to make his eyebrow-raising statement (moments after claiming that ‘no one, anywhere’ wants to get rid of that part of the Bill of Rights):

    I am sure that the maoobama administration already has the next massacre planned to whip up more support for gun control.

  2. Doc says:

    Galvanized citizens against this administration.

    The Dems and their anti-gun lobby have been dancing around on the graves of those 20 murdered children. And for anyone to say, “something good has come from these murders”. is a scumbag of the lowest order. This entire Newtown horror stinks and the orgin of this horror may be located somewhere in Mohammad Holder’s neck of the woods.

  4. I do not think any of the children’s parents would agree to sacrifice a child to have more gun laws on top of those that are not enforced already.Dont politicians try to think before opening mouth? At least we known their hearts on these matters.

    Why do the labor union leaders want to disarm the union members??

      Excellent observation. It all is about the power to control. In the words of their beloved Mao, “Power comes from the muzzle of a gun.”

    You don’t have to look very far back to find that there in no record – ever – of a student going into a high school to shoot fellow students prior to 1970. Since that time there have been many.
    When you demand a Godless society, you must be prepared to live in a lawless world.

    • Rick Baldwin says:

      That is the root of the problem.

    • NM Leon says:

      Without even looking it up I remember the 1966 Texas Tower shootings. Charles Whitman, a student, climbed the tower on the UT campus with a rifle and sniped more than a dozen dead and wounded a bunch more. Turned out he had a brain tumor.
      You’re right about the Godless society though.

  7. Rick Baldwin says:

    If you could see the long lines at the gun stores & measure the people’s new awareness that they must defend themselves & their loved ones,then you could say,those children have not died in vain.

  8. Jenner says:

    For more information look at YouTube. Sandy Hook Hoax. It really gives one something to think about!!!!!!

  9. Moose says:

    You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s
    an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.

    This thinking goes all through the Democrat Party.

  10. NM Leon says:

    I only hope Dingy Harry allows the assault weapons bill and any other gun control lunacy onto the floor for a vote. It would go a long way toward helping us take back the Senate in 2014.

  11. Kevin52 says:

    If the Hypocrat Party really wanted to save children, then why do they so enthusiastically endorse and support the legalized murder by abortions every year? The answer is they could care less about life, this is nothing but another power grab by liberals.
