Figures: Media Using Actions of Norway's 'Extremist Wingnut' to Push for Gun Control in USA

Obviously this maniac in Norway has a few screws loose. Still, aren't pejoratives like "extremist wingnut" best left for the editorial pages?
The extremist wingnut accused in Norway's twin terror attacks that left 93 dead warned during a closed hearing Monday that there were "two more cells" ready to strike.

Anders Behring Breivik said he had pulled off Friday's stunning double attack in an effort to save Europe.

But he also claimed that there are "two more cells in our organization" prepared to stop what he believes is the Muslim colonization of Europe.
If Breivik was an avowed Marxist, would he still be labeled an "extremist wingnut"?

We suspect not.

Meanwhile, diminutive jock-sniffer turned political observer Mike Lupica immediately goes into anti-gun mode. How predictable.
And people wonder sometimes why Mayor Bloomberg has conducted his own crusade against illegal guns, against all guns in the wrong hands. A recent Al Qaeda video was only stating the obvious when it talked about how easy it is to get a gun in America.

Now, across the world in Norway, we find that it is too easy everywhere. A layup.
Lupica's obviously too slow on the draw to realize Al Qaeda views Bloomberg as a useful idiot.
“America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms,’’ he says in the video. “You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check and most likely without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?”

It’s worth noting that Gadahn misstates the facts. Even at a gun show, fully automatic weapons are not available for sale without a license from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. For most sales at gun shows, however, there is no background check, as there would be for purchases from gun stores.
It's a pity tools like Lupica and Bloomberg have no time available to criticize the Justice Department Operation Gunrunner. Or Fast and Furious. Or selling guns to MS-13.

We've got a massive cover-up ongoing at the highest levels of our government, but instead people like Lupica and Bloomberg would prefer to disarm the law-abiding public. And they use a senseless tragedy to push their extremist agenda.

I object to the term "wingnut" for the crazy man in Oslo; 
 "wingnuts" are very important for holding things together.

They will NEVER get our guns, never.

Everywhere these lunatics strike is a "gun free zone", which just means their victims will be defenseless.  Murder is already illegal.  No one willing to do something like the Oslo killings is going to abide by any gun control laws and these laws will not prevent illegal weapons from being available to these lunatics. They will only serve to make law abiding citizens more vulnerable to future attacks.  BTW, doesn't that hypocrite, Bloomberg, have armed bodyguards?  Oh, and has he gotten the news yet that salt IS NOT bad for you?  Ugh!  Hurry up 2012!!

Lupica should stick to writing about sports, where his idiocy will do less damage.
