Some states intend to “explore” ways to block those on terror watch lists from buying guns. Already, according to this story, the state of New Jersey blocks people on the list from purchasing guns, something which would seem to be unconstitutional. Consider the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Owning a gun is a Constitutional right, not just a privilege, like driving a car. In addition, the Constitution requires “due process”, which is not something that occurs when someone is added to terror watch lists by anonymous bureaucrats.

Global warming did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in California, nor did “strain,” desperation, or a lack of food.
The lack of a job did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in CA.
Poverty did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in CA.
Drought did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in CA.

Hillary Clinton was pandering when she met with the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice, among others. Did her campaign pay the families’ airfare to Chicago? If not, then who did?

It seems apparent that we may never learn the whole truth about the recent murders in Oregon. The official narrative seems to be that the shooter, Christopher Mercer (aka Chris Harper-Mercer), was a mentally ill loser who somehow gathered a “legal” arsenal, carried a rifle and 5 handguns into Umpqua Community College without being seen or stopped, and systematically, within 10 minutes, murdered 9 fellow students–shooting one man 5 times (or 7 times) and one woman 10 times–and wounding 9. As usual, various scenarios are offered.

After reading Obama’s speech about the Oregon shooting, I noticed something interesting, perhaps instructive.
