Trump calm on school shootings

In stark contrast to the hysteria of President Obama (who threw a tantrum because no one wants to repeal the Second Amendment), Donald Trump was cool, calm and collected about the shooting rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, on Thursday. The rampage led to the deaths of 10 people including the gunman.

Obama made it sound like such incidents are daily occurrences.

He lied.

Since he became president, there have been five: Oikus University (7 dead), Sandy Hook (28 dead), Santa Monica College (6 dead), the University of California, Santa Barbara (7 dead), Marysville Pilchuck High School (5 dead) and this one, That is a total of six incidents in nearly six years which led to the deaths of 63 people at or near a school.

People have murdered another 75,000 Americans on U,S. soil since Obama became president. With rare exception, Obama is mum on those murders, especially when thugs kill police officers.

MSNBC asked Trump this morning about Umpqua. Then CNN reported:
Donald Trump says even if he becomes president, he doesn't expect to halt all mass shootings like the massacre at an Oregon community college Thursday because there will always be people that society can't stop.
Trump on Friday was asked what he would do as president to try to prevent attacks like the shooting at Umpqua Community College, but he said there are "millions and millions of sick people all over the world" that make it difficult, no matter how strong the laws are.
"You're going to have these things happen and it's a horrible thing to behold, horrible," Trump said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
"It's not politically correct to say that, but you're going to have difficulty and that will be for the next million years, there's going to be difficulty and people are going to slip through the cracks," Trump added. "What are you going to do, institutionalize everybody?"
The Republican front-runner said that he expects as information about the shooting comes out, it'll be clear that the attacker was a "loner" like so many other shooters, and that people he knew always thought something was off about him.
But, Trump said, "It's awfully hard to put somebody in an institution for the rest of their lives based on the fact that he looks like he could be a problem."
It should be pointed out that CNN's founder -- liberal billionaire Ted Turner -- opposes private ownership of guns. The debate on gun ownership ended December 15, 1791, with the ratification of the Second Amendment.


  1. I do not answer questions from Anonymous cowards. If you have a question, email

  2. Trumps response focused on the real reason for these events - "there are millions and millions of sick people all over the world". Bingo. Some of them do this stuff. We don't have institutions like there were in the 50's to place these people in since the hippies and the ACLU freed them. The Sandy Hook shooter's mother tried to - she couldn't. Trump's explanation makes sense and obozo's foaming at the mouth over gun control says it all. "Don't let a crisis go to waste."

  3. Not to mention the shooter asked each one his/her religion and shot the Christians--which is to say, nothing more than workplace violence.

  4. While it is confirmed that the college was not a gun free zone, it was a defacto one in that almost all students at community colleges are under 21 years of age and thus cannot own a handgun and carry it legally. If there had been two people in that room with legally carried arms, the gunman would have killed only a few. If he had known there might be a few armed people, it is almost certain that he would have gone elsewhere, possibly even home.
    At this moment, this appears to be an act of jihad. Take his remains, stuff him into the carcass of a pig and incinerate it. Let that be a message to all the islamists.

  5. Jeremy, I read that while the campus itself was not a gun-free zone, you still couldn't take a weapon into the individual campus buildings/classrooms. I heard a veteran on the air earlier who was on the campus and takes his firearm into the classroom despite their ban. He was like eff it, he's got a c/c permit.

  6. And while I'm not really a Trump fan, he not only answered the question 100% correctly, he showed leadership by doing it calmly and evenly (remember the shit W got for not losing his mind and acting like a typical leftist bed-wetter when he got the 9/11 news). Obama has to do the faux angry black man routine as if it's somehow intimidating or worthy of someone in a leadership position.

  7. While Obama was talking about mass shootings why didn't he mention Chicago. They have mass shootings every weekend.

  8. There are various other factors involved which might create some difference later on, but still this will be a good instance to move on.
