‘One can only hope’ NRA members are shot dead

Tragedies often bring out the best in people.

Responding to a tweet by author Joyce Carol Oates, actress Marg Helgenberger said “one can only hope” that members of the NRA get shot, Twitchy reported Tuesday.

“If sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves, maybe hope for legislation of firearms,” Oates tweeted Friday.

“@JoyceCarolOates One can only hope, but sadly I don’t think anything would change,” the CSI star tweeted in response.

This wasn’t taken particularly well:

“@MargHelgen @JoyceCarolOates are you encouraging violence against those who dare disagree with you?” asked “Jeremy Avery.”

“Congrats for becoming yet another clueless, VIOLENT, liberal ‘elite’ who shoved her foot in her mouth. Shame on you, lady,” added “Conservative Girl.”

A Texas democrat party leader added another sensible contribution to the national discussion:

“Can we now shoot the #NRA and everyone who defends them?”

Of course, when he said “Can we shoot” NRA members he meant no violence.

John Cobaruvvias, the Texas Democratic Party leader who issued a tweet advocating violence against NRA members, told Houston ABC affiliate KTRK Monday that his call to shoot supporters of the pro-gun group was not a death threat.

Cobaruvvias added

“My apologies to those I offended concerning the #nra. My emotions on the subject got the better of me. It didn’t help,” he said.

And later the same day went on to call the NRA a “terrorist” organization.”

President Barack Obama treaded carefully, but did say

President Barack Obama carefully avoided overtly criticizing the nation’s largest pro-gun lobbying group, the National Rifle Association, on Wednesday, saying only that he hopes the group’s members “will do some self-reflection” following the massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last Friday. The president made the comments at a press conference announcing a joint task force led by Vice President Joe Biden to consider ways to reduce gun violence.

So what are liberals are demanding? Three things, for starters:

Today he said he expected Congress to vote on at least three pieces of legislation: the assault-weapons ban, a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips, and background checks on all gun purchases. Public opinion supports all of these measures, and the president made clear he intends to use his office to fight for their passage.

None of them would have prevented the Newtown massacre. Adam Lanza had handguns capable of visiting the same destruction as the rifle. Lanza didn’t go to the school to kill as many as he could. He spent 3-11 rounds on each victim- a classic case of overkill. He was a sick kid. A sociopath. He had access to the weapons. He could have killed as many with the handguns in his possession and all he had to do was carry several extra loaded magazines. He could have shot his way into school.

I am not arguing against reasonable gun laws. I do think it ought to be at least as hard to buy a gun as it is to get a driver’s license. Background checks are a really good and important idea- including examination of the mental health of family members.

“Is there anyone in your household with a history of mental illness?”

Still, this is left wing pablum that’s meant to sooth the masses. Doing something-anything, even something foolish or useless- will satiate the left.

And these laws would not have prevented the massacre. Adam Lanza meant to kill- his Mom and those he believed his Mom loved more than him.

Those kids are dead because Nancy Lanza waited too long to do anything about Adam. Those kids are dead because she did not properly secure those weapons.

Those are the two actions that could have prevented the Newtown disaster.

It is monumentally stupid to blame the NRA for this shooting and even more stupid to call for more violence.

The NRA is all about the responsible handling of weapons. They don’t commit these crimes. They don’t make them possible either. But what liberals are doing is causing the ranks of the NRA to swell:

The National Rifle Association, while staying mostly quiet in the immediate aftermath of the mass shooting in Connecticut, has registered an average of 8,000 new members a day since the tragedy, an NRA source told Fox News.

Take that, Marg.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    “In February 2012, Connecticut Senate Bill 452 (SB452) was put forward to remedy the fact that Connecticut was one of less than ten states in the U.S. to lack an “assisted outpatient treatment” (AOT) law. As David Stein has pointed out, there are just six states that lack such a law.

    But the bill was passed to Connecticut’s Joint Committee on Judiciary in March, where it quietly faded away because of opposition by those who viewed it as “egregious” and “outrageously discriminatory.”

    Had this law passed, it may have forced Adam Lanza to be treated for his alleged mental illness instead of allowing him to roam free, and ultimately to kill 26 persons and himself in a vindictive rage on Friday. ”

    Liberals afraid to offend anyone voted against this bill because it would infringe on the mentally ills privacy.

    Great point that the LEFT defeated a bill that might well have kept guns and Adam Lanza apart.
    I well recall the LEFT fighting against the most effective preventions for the spread of HIV/AIDS.
    The privacy right of homosexuals, prostitutes, drug addicts and blood donors to carry on without limits was more important than the spread of a deadly disease.

    Piers Morgan and this dimwit exhibiting the kind of “converstion” demanded by the left when it comes to the 2nd Amendment.

    Both of them deserve to be out of a job.

    The way I see it Marg you want to correct this act of violence with another act of violence just because you think you know everything and yet you don’t know anything….She was on a show that promoted violence but she didn’t object to that because she made money on it so we the people that don’t like violence should have her shot…What idiots these people are…When was the last time a NRA member killed someone?

    How tone deaf are those on the Left?
    Their dear leader, Obama, has put any and all potential for new gun control legislation on hold!
    Did they miss his dog whistle?
    He sent gun control over to ”a commission.” In other words, slow death.
    The commission takes its sweet time studying guns and eventually puts out recommendations.
    How did Obama treat the recommendations of his own Simpson/Bowles commission?
    Slow death.
    Do these Lefties actually think there is a Dem Senator or Congressman who will run ahead of Obama and put a piece of legislation forward ahead of Obama’s commission’s final report?
    Lefties really have got the wool pulled over their eyes!
    See, Obama reads polls.

    I always find it amusing when Liberals like to talk tough and 9 out of 10 times they have never served in the military, have no knowledge of weapons or tactics and do nothing of substance to stop crime or criminals.

    Acting is the portrayal of what other people do in real life that an actor pretends to do for money.

  7. 12


    Why anyone would believe that an ‘actor’ is saying anything other than what is on the script is beyond me. I see them schilling products all the time with their method acting sincerity in full gear. How could anyone know what they really think much less what they know about anything. Fame does not equal wisdom as is so well illustrated by our current Presentdent.

    I’m guessing that the ones who want the NRA members “shot in the head” won’t do it themselves. If someone else does it, I’m guessing that it better not be with one of the guns obama wants to banned, or they will be in serious trouble.

    I had thought about joining the NRA, but they encouraged their members to encourage their politicians to vote for ObamaCare, so I didn’t. I will overlook that, and I have printed out their application. I would have done it over the Internet, but I don’t like to give my credit card number unless I have to. They have an application I can print and send a check with.

    The whole gun control mob seems to be channeling Otter from Animal House “……I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part !”

  10. 16


    Marge, Marge, Marge. How can you direct such vile venomous hatred tword me.
    Just this morning after their press conference I joined the NRA.
    And now you want me shot DEAD?
    You posses looks that only run skin deep. You are truly a horrid, evil, nasty person.

    Smorg #13 Believe that was the AMA or maybe AARP. LOL

    AARP. Thanks for letting me know about the goof. I keep proving that I can’t do two things at the same time: Think what I WANT to say, and type it. I try to remember to proof read before I post, but I either forgot, or missed it.

    Several accounts said that his parent’s divorce upset Adam Lanza terribly. Other accounts said that his father did not have much contact with him in the months leading up to last week. These are also factors in the life of this troubled young man that the media ignores because it goes against the liberal narrative that there is little consequences to families splitting up and that single moms can be just as good a parent as fully functional families.

    C’mon now, we all know good and well that an assault and hi-cap mag ban is needed. Just make damn certain you also overlook the fact that Columbine and Jonesboro happened under one….

  14. 22


    compare to other your error is not hurting, and the first one since you comment,
    is not to make a story from no one,
    but we like to have it corrected,
    it never happened to me yet,
    I must be very good now, at it now,

    TEBOW HAD BROKEN RIBS, that hurt bad,
    and the coach is disappointed on his performance,
    of course when you have broken ribs it take a long time to heal,
    and of course he doesn’t give all he’s got, he has to protect against worsening his cage ribs,
    the coach should understand that, he decide to put another in his place and TEBOW IS SAD,
    I think he will go to another team when he can,
    insensitive leadership , on this team,
    you’re good as long as you’re not hurt, and they dump you if you have an injury,

    yes you have a surely answer to that explosion of maybe a long time growing in
    a forgotten house without the special need he should have had,
    but he had a good mother but she didn’t know what to do to help him,
    it was said that she became scare of him, she said to a guardian babysitter,
    don’t turn your back a second, that tell all, she could have just say, he is a monster,
    but as a mother she did not get him into a secluded place prisoner of there for life,
    the father had given up on him, he surely was trouble by his son behavior,
    that is tragic,
    edit; what is troubling is that he could have access to the weapon, I think he had 3 of them,
    why his mother did not think the worse from her monster
    she had claim to be.
