Time to release the videos of students being mowed down at school.

The Gun humpers will continue to talk about how "guns don't kill people" until people can see what these "tools" do to the human body.

We are disappointed to see the video of the armed deputy remaining hiding outside of the school but a video of what was going on inside would be more instructive about why he may have chosen not to enter the building.

Sanitizing what people see and know of these assault rifles simply will delay the remedy. We can all laugh at the crazy antics in the many posted videos on You Tube showing people doing stupid things with guns but like the videos of Cops beating up and shooting unarmed detainees, some real life gore will quickly end the NRA's hold on the narrative.

So far all we get are students leaving the building with their hands up and a few "Exclusive" student produced videos of kids hiding in closets. NRA can say "No big deal."

1. Or the pics of the kids from Newtown.

People need to SEE what a gun like that does to a 5 yr old child.

2. I truly don't think that would make any difference.

Gun humpers would chose their arsenals over even their own childrens' lives.

7. True but the photos/videos are needed to persuade the silent majority to act against guns.

Gundamentalists comprise a minority share of the electorate and that share decreases daily. There are more than enough of us in the majority to enact sensible gun laws if we speak up and vote.

3. No

That kind of video might encourage other potential killers.

5. Or revenge....

They routinely show this sort of thing in other parts of the world in war zones, it doesn't seem to help.
I do understand the sentiment of the OP however.

6. Too late. The news coverage and fame already does that.

 

I understand your thought and it is probably correct. Some sickos will be encouraged. But, the fame and news coverage that comes along now is already enough to encourage them.

I think we have arrived at the time the public needs to see the carnage to get the outrage high enough it cannot be tamped down with "thoughts and prayers" rhetoric.

4. I agree. Nothing else seems to be working.

 

People need to see the carnage so the outrage will finally hit home. So that the spineless lawmakers have absolutely no defense.

9. I think the parents of the victims could push for this.

They at least should have the videos available to them as a right, as their kids would certainly be in them.

10. Yes. That's how the Viet Nam War had public sentiment changed.

The TV news media showing night after night the carnage and misery that was going on.
It didn't change the minds of the war hawks, but then again nothing would.

People think being shot is like what they see on TV dramas...the hero gets shot in the gut and next week is walking around, doing leaps and getting into fights like nothing happened. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you survive getting shot anywhere on your body it will change your life forever.

11. So right -

every night America saw what war really is and it did change public sentiment.

12. Where is the Media on this?

They were on the Helicopters and in the jungles of Vietnam and bringing home death to the viewers. Now, a virtual war in the halls of our schools and so far Nothing.
