Right wing freak-out over Jim Carrey’s ‘Cold Dead Hand’ tweets about assault rifle owners who are ‘unwilling’ to bend for the safety of our kids.

Film Director Jonathan Bucari Plans Made-For-TV Movie Related to Newtown Shooting

NEWTOWN SCHOOL SHOOTING:  Film director Jonathan Bucari plans to a made-for-TV movie related to the Newtown school shooting. WVIT-TV reported that Demian Productions  said the film isn’t about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre where Adam Lanza killed his mother, 20 children and six educators on December 14.

The film focuses on a 13 year old boy with mental illness and a growing fear of his parents after the shooting. The movie is being filmed in Ridgefield, which is located 20 miles southwest of Newtown. Jonathan Bucari said he chose Ridgefield because had many similarities to Newtown and because he didn’t want to upset Newtown residents so soon after the mass shooting.

Sorry, but the timing of this movie is poor. The tragedy is too fresh and this is an affront to the families of the victims.

Conservative pollster Frank Luntz says the National Rifle Association isn’t listening to Americans, as it digs in on any new gun control measures in the wake of the Newtown shooting massacre that claimed 26 lives and the Webster firefighter shooting. He told Politico that the NRA is “out of touch.”

Politico:  Frank Luntz said, “The public wants guns out of the schools, not in the schools. And they are not asking for a security official or someone else. I don’t think the NRA is listening. I don’t think they understand most Americans would protect the Second Amendment rights and yet agree with the idea that not every human being should own a gun, not every gun should be available at anytime, anywhere, for anyone. At gun shows, you should not be able to buy something there without any kind of check whatsoever.”

First Lady Michelle Obama Writes Touching Letter About Newtown Shooting Massacre

Full disclosure, I am a big fan of First Lady Michelle Obama, as I was of Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush. Mrs. Obama wrote a touching and heartfelt letter to the people of Newtown, Conn., in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre that left 20 children dead and six adults. Here’s the letter in its entirety:

Over the past week, we as Americans have been united in our grief as Newtown has laid to rest so many beautiful, innocent children, along with the heroic educators who worked every day to help them achieve their dreams.

As a mother of two young daughters, my heart aches for you and your families. Like so many Americans, I wish there were something — anything — I could do or say to ease your anguish.

But I know that I cannot begin to imagine the depths of your grief. I know that for many of you, the pain you are enduring right now seems unbearable; and many of you may be asking yourselves, how can we go on — as families and as a community?

But I also know that we have already begun to see the answer to that question in the countless acts of courage, kindness and love here in Newtown and across America.

Over the past week, I have been awed and inspired by Newtown’s heroes: the first responders who risked their lives at a moment’s notice; the educators whose devotion to their students shone brightest in one of our nation’s darkest hours; the children who comforted each other despite their fear; the families coming together to support each other as they grieve.

And I am so proud of the outpouring of love and support that has come from every corner of America: from first responders from neighboring cities rushing to help however they could; from people in Cleveland and Charlotte and Juneau and so many other communities joining together to honor Newtown with their thoughts and prayers; and in living rooms and houses of worship and the halls of our government, where we are beginning to have those difficult conversations about how we can build a safer, more peaceful tomorrow for all our children.

And I want you to know that this is just the beginning. As my husband has said, in the coming weeks, he will use all the powers of his office to engage citizens from across this country to find ways to prevent tragedies like this one. And please know that every minute of every day, we are thinking of you, and praying for you, and holding you and your families in our hearts as you begin the slow and wrenching work of healing and moving forward.

In the months and years ahead, may the memories of those beautiful children and those heroic adults be a blessing for their families, for your community, and for our country, and may God bless you all.

A discussion about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre leads to Lester Davis allegedly firing his gun in the direction of another man at the All Cuts Barber Shop in Wentzville,  MO.

 St. Louis Post-Dispatch: One of the patrons was discussing last week’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown and commented that the incident “makes me want to murder the suspect,” police said.

For unknown reasons, (Lester) Davis took the comment as a threat and asked, “You want to murder me?” Davis then walked out to his Volkswagen sedan, retrieved a loaded Smith & Wesson 9 mm pistol and fired three times in the customer’s direction, police said.

Lester Davis has been charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a weapon. He is in jail and his bail set at $400,000, the newspaper reports. This is proof some people shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun, period.

President Obama talked about gun control in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre that claimed the lives of 20 children and six teachers in Newtown, CT, last Friday. He set a January deadline for gun control proposal. He appointed Vice President Joe Biden to led the commission charged with coming up with a set of proposals. He urged Congress to vote early 2013 to ban assault weapons, high capacity magazines & gun show background check loophole. Um, I dare the Republicans to play politics with the lives of innocent people.

President Obama’s comments comes as adulterer Newt Gingrich blames the Newtown school shooting on an “anti-religious” secular government. Um, another self-righteous windbag. He told host Brian Thomas of 55KRC:

When you have an anti-religious, secular bureaucracy and secular judiciary seeking to drive God out of public life, something fills the vacuum. And that something, you know, I don’t know that going from communion to playing war games in which you practice killing people is necessarily an improvement.

NRA Issues Statement Five Days After Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

NRA issues statement on Connecticut school shooting, says ‘we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken’ by the news.  The group has scheduled ‘major news conference’ in Washington, DC area for Dec. 21 and is ‘prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.’ This statement comes five days after Adam Lanza murdered 20 innocent children and six adults at the school. Um, don’t expect that ‘meaningful contribution’ to be anything other than a call for more guns.

Austin Noodle House Owner, Eddie Nimibutr, In Hot Water Over Insensitive Comments About Sandy Hook Shooting

Eddie Nimibutr, the owner of Thai Noodle House in Austin, TX, is under fire for his comments about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre, saying “I don’t care if a bunch of white kids got killed.” Um, really? He posted that mess on Friday, hours after the shooting took place. Well, Eddie Nimibutr, who was born in Thailand, has been on the receiving end of some sharp criticism about his lack of concern for the victims of the shooting massacre.

“I don’t care if a bunch of white kids got killed,” the Thailand-born Eddie Nimibutr wrote in the update he posted on Friday, shortly after the incident took place. “Fuck Post-Racial bullshit. When kids from minority groups get shot, nobody cares. When Israel launched missiles at the school on Gaza, everybody was too busy jerking off. Why should i care about people who dont give a damn about me?” Source

He deleted the post from Facebook and tried to clean it up with with a follow up post. Some people just don’t think before they spew venom, only to walk it back. I am sure his restaurant will find its customers staying away because of his indifference to such an unspeakable act of violence against innocent children. What a dumbass…..

Here’s Eddie Nimibutr’s Facebook rant:
