Wow, look at all the scandals that Obama had to distract from.

Oregon Shooting Draws Obama’s Outrage on Gun Laws





WASHINGTON — President Obama, speaking hours after a gunman killed a student and wounded a teacher at an Oregon high school, said Tuesday that his failure to push through stricter gun laws was the greatest frustration of his presidency, declaring, “We’re the only developed country on earth where this happens.”





Speaking in blunt and bitter terms about a bloody trail of shootings in the last month, Mr. Obama said: “Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. There’s no advanced, developed country on earth that would put up with this.”





While the president said he had undertaken several executive actions to tighten existing regulations, the failure to require a background check for buyers of guns left the nation vulnerable to an unending series of mass shootings. “The bottom line is, is that we don’t have enough tools right now to really make as big of a dent as we need to,” Mr. Obama said to a young audience at a White House question-and-answer session sponsored by the social media site Tumblr. ...





“What are you going to do?” the student asked. “What can we all do?”





Mr. Obama replied that passing federal legislation would require a shift in public opinion big enough to move Congress, where he said most members “are terrified of the N.R.A.”

Pete Santilli is whining that the press and the LVPD isn't mentioing Jerad and Amanda Miller's supposed "ties" to the Occupy movement[link]Las Vegas Police Intentionally Omit Cop killers Tie To Occupy Movement,http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/20 ... 72502.html[/link] (BIN, 10 June 2014)"So why would the Sheriff’s office mention Bundy and not Occupy? Because clearly it did not fit their agenda to use the shooting as a means to once again vilify Patriots, the Tea Party and conservative America. Searching Amanda Miller’s Facebook page it is clear to see she was affiliated with Occupy. Even her banner on facebook is a photo taken of the Million Mask March she and her husband participated in on November 5, 2013 in Indiana.After seeing this Photo the LVPD still didn’t think the shooters involvement with Occupy was important enough to mention in the press conference where they promptly began a media storm about the Miller’s involvement at Bundy Ranch."Problem is that the pictures are so small and indistinct that they could be, well, just about anything or anyone.

If they were there, it was to protest corruption. OWS was not part of this, but anonymous was and is. there is another "March" planned for Nov. 5th, Guy Fawkes Day, who it must be remembered attempted to blow up Parliament in order to restore Catholicism to England.

Do we know anything about the Oregon shooter?Haven't seen anything, except that he was a "teen." I assume that means he was a student at the high school.
I love the poorly educated!!!

Victim in Oregon school shooting ID'd as 14-year-old freshmanTROUTDALE, Ore. - A teen gunman armed with a rifle shot and killed a student Tuesday and injured a teacher before he likely killed himself at a high school in a quiet Columbia River town in Oregon, authorities said.After the shooting stopped, police spotted the suspect slumped on a toilet in a bathroom at Reynolds High School but couldn't see what was happening with him.Officers used a robot with a camera to investigate and discovered the suspect was dead and that he had likely killed himself, Troutdale police spokesman Sgt. Carey Kaer said.The victim was identified a 14-year-old freshman Emilio Hoffman, police Chief Scott Anderson said at a Tuesday news conference. He said Emilio was found in the boys' locker room.Anderson said he had met with the boy's "devastated" parents and that they had a message for the public: "We want you to know Emilio was a great kid and was loved by all."Authorities have tentatively identified the gunman but were not "in a position to 100 percent confirm his name and age at this time."A law enforcement official told CBS News the shooter was also a student, but Anderson said he was not ready to release any more information about the suspect or his weapon, other than to say it was a rifle. Police could not say whether the victim was deliberately targeted. ............The teacher's injuries weren't life-threatening, and he was treated at the scene. He was identified as Todd Rispler, a 50-year-old physical education instructor and former track coach and quarterback at the school. Anderson said Rispler, despite being injured, "was able to make his way to the office and initiate the school lockdown procedure."

Alex Jones with a little less angerAfter insisting we're 100% (what is it about 100% with these guys?) under attack, this asswipe brings up a page of the Oregon shooting "Well, right on cue, as I speak, as I report this, this morning, again, another staged shooting. Yes, staged. I'm not even gonna look into it, I just have to read the headline to know that it's staged."





Confirmation bias? - we don't need no steenkin' confirmation!!





It's strange how the people setting up these "staged shootings" succeed in keeping that aspect secret from everybody except themselves, a bunch of brainless, stupid, hate-filled, vicious, vile morons!





I didn't watch much. It makes me want to puke.

Washington Post June 11, 2014 [link]Police visited Las Vegas shooters earlier this year and determined that they weren’t a threat,http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post ... id=up_next[/link]Four months before a married couple shot and killed two Las Vegas police officers and a bystander, the police visited their home and determined that they didn’t pose any threat, authorities said Wednesday.Detectives were dispatched to the home of Jerad Miller in February because the Southern Nevada Counter-Terrorism Center was alerted that he had made threatening remarks to a government agency in Indiana, Kevin C. McMahill, assistant sheriff of Clark County, said during a briefing with reporters....This echoes something that happened in Santa Barbara, Calif., before a shooting there two weeks ago: A month before a gunman went on a violent rampage in a sunny beach town there, officers visited him and determined that he didn’t pose any threat.
