One is left with the unmistakable impression that Obama and the Congressional Democrats, whose fiscal agenda is looking increasingly like taxation without representation, are taking advantage of the slaughter of the innocents to disarm the peasants. Some things have never changed.


But it is also curious to see how Americans respond privately to these events. It turns out that when these mass shooting happen, gun sales spike. Some people buy guns because the feel unsafe. Others buy guns because they fear the government is about to interfere in the Second Amendment rights of their citizens. Regardless, a combination of the actions of Lanza and Obama have resulted in the flood of almost 300,000 more guns onto the streets of America in less than a week. Value of gun companies have soared, leading three private equity firms to announce that they will take their profits, and transfer their ownership interests to overseas conglomerates who could care less about what Congress does here.  Instead of making guns here, those guns will be made in Mexico, and our president will soon be faced with assault weapon smuggling rather than coke smuggling at huge taxpayer expense. Unintended consequences, but not the ones that the liberal media, quick to wave the bloody shirt, want to discuss.


Meanwhile, Obama retreats to Washington, where I’m sure he is lamenting that he wasn’t able to pose next to stacked bodies of the dead, which make a great backdrop for the photo ops of the politically greedy.
