Victims In Seattle Couldn't Defend Themselves

As many of you probably are already aware, a mentally ill person (that definition is one to be debated for a long time) attacked, killed and injured people in Seattle, Washington. Here is a short press release issued by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

WASHINGTON, July 29 /U.S. Newswire/ — Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, issued the following statement today on the shooting at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle Friday:

“Our prayers go out to the victims of gun violence in Seattle and their families. To the family of the victim who died, we express our deepest condolences. To the victims who are struggling to recover, we offer our hopes for a full recovery.

“This terrible attack appears to have been launched by a deeply troubled person who had shown signs of mental illness, and had run afoul of the law as a result of that mental illness. We, as a society, need to do more to restrict access to firearms to individuals who are exhibiting public recklessness and espousing hatred to people around them.”

The Brady Campaign has elected to dumb down this attack as a random act of violence. Are they kidding? By someone’s definition, there are a lot of mentally ill people in this world. To simple make a statement that puts this act into a category with other random acts of violence is absurd and was done to fulfill the ambitions of the BCPGV.

We should take the act for what it was. It was a hate crime, an act of terrorism. Was the person mentally ill? Perhaps but that doesn’t diminish what he he did. Why did he pick on a Jewish institution?

Does the Brady bunch think of the beheading of innocents in Iraq and around the world as random acts of violence? Why do they refuse to see the truth? It’s staring them in the face.

One of Hitler’s goals was to disarm the people. Once that was accomplished he could rule with very few worries and cast his hatred, bigotry and anti-semitism around the world.

This act in Seattle is not much different. It came from a person who is mentally ill because of their hatred of Jews.

Let’s look at what might have happened there. Should these people have been able to arm themselves in the first place, much, if not all, of this death and maiming wouldn’t have taken place.

As a law abiding individual living in a free society (I’m talking of America here) you should have the right to choose whether or not you need to arm yourself in defense of your life and well being. If you choose not to that is fine but don’t remove my right because you choose to keep telling yourself it was nothing more than a random act by a deranged individual.

Give me a break!
