    No politician would dare call for an assault weapons ban or more gun control. :cool:

    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.

    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!" :Boom2:

    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. :cool:
