No politician would dare call for an assault weapons ban or more gun control.
Depends if the gun haters could figure out a way to use it to their advantage or not.
The whole game would be different, this would be looked at an act of terrorism.
If he had been a Muslim, it would be all we would be talking about, even though the crime had nothing to do with religion. As it stands now, I haven't heard one journalist question what religion he belonged to.
I don't recall any politicians calling for a weapons ban after hassan killed 14.
If it had been a Muslim shooter it would have been swept under the rug.......like Ft. Hood....the worst terrorist attack since 9-11.....
True, there isn't much culpability for workplace or neighborhood mass murderers e.g., Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan. "Allahu Akbar!"
that wasnt swept under the rug
Move your dog (avatar) and lift the ruig...you'll find it.
Even if the hypothetical muslim kid Achmed (the shooter) was just as mentally ill as Adam Lanza.
He would be portrayed by the media as a totally sane terrorist engaging in jihad.
And it would make no difference if he had never attended services at a mosque or read the Quran.
Just the fact that his parents were muslims.
Would be enough to blame Islam and 1.5 billion muslims for the incident.
