James World being the same one in which Cain slew Abel, Holmes paid no heed to Aurora theater’s ban on concealed guns carried by non-criminals

Upon hearing that 12 were killed and 58 wounded by a gun-wielding 24-year old at a movie theater in Colorado, the mayor of the nation’s largest city just couldn’t let a crisis go to waste:

“You know, soothing words are nice, but maybe it’s time that the two people who want to be President of the United States stand up and tell us what they are going to do about it, because this is obviously a problem across the country,” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.

Yes, Mayor Bloomberg, the words “gun-free zone” are soothing to criminals, which is why, despite the Empire State and Big Apple’s draconian gun control laws, there is still at least one murder per day in NYC. Yes, this rate passes for “progress” in a jurisdiction that used to see thousands murdered each year before former Mayor Rudy Giuliani cracked down on all crime from serial squeegee-wielding to grafitti artists, but surely more lives would be saved if criminals feared their victims and not just the police.

In Aurora, the police arrived on the scene within 60-90 seconds of the first shot being fired by the former University of Colorado at Denver student. Killers know that lots of innocents can be killed and their sick “statement” made before Johnny Law brings the curtain down. Do liberals like Mayor Bloomberg ever wonder why mass shootings never take place at NRA shooting ranges or police stations? Can they spell D*E*T*E*R*E*N*C*E?

Not. Why not just increase student loans, keep tuition high, blame Republicans for not caring about the poor and middle class priced out of an education because they won’t increase student loans even more, and keep the high salaries for the Democrats in academia?

File the above with other headlines you never see, such as:

  • Labor unions voluntarily reduce pay to save company
  • Government employees voluntarily increase their contributions to pension fund to prevent tax increase
  • Teachers voluntarily agree to end tenure and adopt merit pay plan
  • Democrats agree to cut non-defense spending

Democrats constantly demonize “Big Oil”, “Big Pharmaceutical” and Big Business in general and tilt at other faux man-made global warming aka “climate change” windmills such as Republicans as racist, bigot, homophobes that want widows and orphans to starve in the streets rather than prove they “care” by supporting the latest Democrat-sponsored bill. And we fully expect September or October surprises that would “bail out” Sallie Mae and debt-burdened students much like Dodd-Frank bailed out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and let them continue their business and serve as employment agency for rejected and retiring Democrat pols.

Could we please, finally, hold democrats accountable for the failure of their policies?

How many more cities and states run by Democrats for decades have to reach the Detroit stage of a return of city limits territory to pasture status before voters will quote Sheriff Andy Griffith’s deputy Barney Fife and say fool me for decades, shame on me; and join the tea partier reversal that began with the 2010 election landslide for conservatives?
