The Horror of the Connecticut Shooting and the Tragedy of Unresolved Massacres

These are the innocents of America's Dunblane — each smiling face a heartbreaking plea for the nation to give up its guns. President Barack Obama has declared he will use "whatever power" he has to prevent shootings like Friday's rampage by Adam Lanza happening again. In a powerful speech last night at an evening vigil in Newtown, Connecticut, he suggested he is considering a radical move to ditch America's historic right to bear arms in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre. Obama said: "Are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard? "Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?" – UK Sun

Dominant Social Theme: Precious children are horrifyingly dead. So let the right to carry arms in the US expire as well.

Free-Market Analysis: It is almost impossible to write about the horrible shooting in Sandy Hook because of the age of the little ones who were shot. One wants to weep looking at so many innocent faces of now-dead children.

But what if the narrative is a false one? What if there is more to the story than what we've been told?

The shooting in Columbine, Colorado so many years ago marked the seeming beginning of a new kind of massacre. And massacres there have been since Columbine.

But when one looks at the Columbine massacre, one finds surprisingly that questions still linger.

Just query Columbine and "massacre questions" or "Columbine mystery" ... or some such.

You'll find lists of statements by eyewitnesses swearing there were more shooters than the two young men who were finally killed.

You will find statements that law enforcement officers were at the scene and acting in odd ways that actually ended up enhancing the mayhem. And why are the bodies of the shooters still on display on the Internet? Who makes these decisions?

There are even videos of the shooters killing themselves but like the mutilated body of Osama bin Laden, these appear to be fake. One is apparently an independent movie that was made about the killing. But people are confused into believing that a film is actual footage.

The intensity of the kinds of massacres has increased. And cries to regulate guns in the US have gone up commensurately. Here's some more from the article excerpted above:

The President has come under pressure to bring in strict gun control laws after Lanza murdered 20 children and six staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Obama said: "No laws can eliminate evil from the world — but that can't be an excuse for inaction.

"Surely we can do better than this. If there is even one step we can take then we have an obligation to try.

"In the coming weeks I will use whatever power this office holds in an effort to prevent more tragedies like this."

His emotional speech set up a battle with the pro-gun lobby in the nation as he prepared to fight for new laws.

The President added: "This is our first job — caring for our children. That's how as a society we will be judged.

"Are we really doing enough to keep our children safe from harm?

"If we are honest with ourselves the answer is 'No, we are not doing enough'. And we will have to change." ...

Horrified anti-gun campaigners said America's citizens MUST now abandon their centuries-old right to bear arms in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre.

They begged President Obama to bring in strict gun control laws immediately to stop maniacs like Lanza having such easy access to weapons.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was scathing about Obama's pledge for "meaningful action" on gun control.

He said: "Calling for meaningful action is not enough. We need immediate action. We've heard rhetoric before."

The killers are always almost all the same: Young white men who are pleasant but bland loners. In this case the shooter is said to have had obvious emotional problems.

The idea of some is that such crazies should be stopped via gun control. If they cannot get guns they cannot hurt people with them.

Of course, in Britain where guns are virtually banned there has been a subsequent increase in knife crime and battery. And in China there have been reports of numerous horrifying knife attacks on children in schools. People will hurt each other if they are motivated to do so.

But these massacres are something else. Who picks up a rifle and shoots little children? And why?

And why are there always questions lingering after "official" investigations?

Like 9/11 itself, we would urge that the authorities or other interested parties reopen the Columbine investigation to answer lingering questions about that tragedy. There are literally hundreds of individuals who registered their conviction as eyewitnesses that more than two shooters – youngsters – were involved.

The debate in the US is usually constrained. The rhetoric quickly resolves itself into a debate over gun control.

Conclusion

But maybe people are asking the wrong questions and coming to the wrong conclusions ...
