The Pistorius Conspiracy. Gun-grabbers and Liberals concoct incredible scheme involving an olympic athelete with rage issues, a super-model, a television network, thousands of co-conspirators and South Africa in a stunning web of intrigue. Gun advocates believe so-called victim Reeva SteenKamp is in hiding as body double in soft-core porn movie starring Meryl Streep. They point to the fact that Steenkamp’s show still aired after her supposed death, saying, “Who will cash the paycheck, hmm?” Ted Nugent, NRA and Glen Beck still have not commented. More on this developing story as it unfolds, only at 900poundgorilla…

Since New Town, according to a survey by Slate.com and @gundeaths tallied gun deaths by age and gender since December 14. Their grim total: 2141 Americans, more than 107 New Towns have occured. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/crime/2012/12/gun_death_tally_every_american_gun_death_since_newtown_sandy_hook_shooting.html

The vast majority were killed by handguns, most often by someone they knew or a family member. Of the 2141 gun deaths since Newtown there were fewer than one percent representing someone defending themselves. Those designated that w ay were largely domestic disputes or disputes between neighbors. But the NRA and gun pornographers assert that what the nation needs is more guns and less rules. Others would argue that in fact, the nation needs to grow up and learn to deal with issues of crime, domestic disputes, violence against women, and the ready availability of guns. Incidentally, murders with other weapons such as knives and bats, despite the fiction of the NRA and its surrogates is comparatively anectdotal. Guns don’t kill people, but people with guns do.
