Mr Nuance Has Been Retired

Another school shooting in the US, and as night follows day, talking heads have appeared from all quarters explaining what it all says about America. The epidemic of sudden explosion syndrome amongst followers of a certain peaceful religion ? Just coincidence. But don’t expect anyone to be referencing the vast majority of peaceful Yanks anytime soon.

Incidents like this allow the MSM to ram home another of the chattering classes favourite points, namely the evil of guns. Hell, the only way they could have worked themselves into more of a self-righteous snit would be if the killer had been driving round the school in a 4x4. The funny thing is that the same MSM which claims that the gun is at the very centre of US culture, act as though the Koran and the Hadiths are just a set of vague suggestions, completely unrelated to any current events, in fact hardly worth bothering with at all.

I’m willing to bet that there’s less of a correlation between gun laws and crime across the various states of the US than there is between Islam and violence, but we’ll need a gun of our own to hold to the MSM’s head before they’ll investigate that.
US guns Islam
