Before Barack Obama and the rest of the anti-Second Amendment right, anti-gun Democrats over-reach and attempt to exploit the horrendous actions of a crazed, lone, insaneoid gunman Adam Lanza who murdered his mother and then went on a shooting rampage at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT killing 26, including 20 children … they may want to take a look at how Americans feel about those who Democrats and the MSM want to demonize. According to a recent Gallup Poll, 54% of Americans have a favorable image of the NRA, while only 38% have an unfavorable one. This even after the liberal MSM has tried to smear the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre for his press conference comments and ’Meet the Press’ interview asking to protect children by arming individuals in the schools.
The NRA’s positions on guns and gun control legislation have received significant attention from media and politicians during the last week after the association’s top lobbyist, Wayne LaPierre, held a press conference in the wake of the Newtown school shooting. LaPierre denounced the idea of additional gun control legislation and instead called for armed guards in the nation’s schools. The press conference came midway through the field period of this Dec. 19-22 USA Today/Gallup poll.
Other polls have shown that Americans place gun control only fourth on the list for protecting children, following police presence in schools, greater focus on mental health screening and decreasing gun violence in movies, TV and video games.

Ohio State University Study Shows Prolonged Exposure to Violent Video Games Increases Aggression … Newtown, CT Adam Lanza was a Gamer
Before everyone is so quick to blame only guns for the tragic events in Newtown, CT, parents might want to look at the below study and violent video games.
So you think it is all about the guns when it comes to violence. WRONG! Since the heartbreaking murders of 20 innocent children and 6 school staffers hit the news last Friday, many have been grappling with the question of how this could happen? What could have gone so wrong? How could 20 year old Adam Lanza shoot his mother and then go on a murdering spree at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Many Democrat tragedy opportunists have blamed in all on guns. Sorry, but if we want to be honest about all of this and want to protect our children not only from future Adam Lanza’s, but from themselves, then we have to look at many other factors and issues in this case and many other recent mass murders.
Call of Duty
It is important to take a look at the following study from Ohio State on violent video games and human, or I should inhuman behavior. The study determined that More Playing Time Violent Video Games Equals More Aggression. Makes sense now doesn’t it. The study basically compares continued violent video game use to the use of cigarettes. The longer and prolonged Gaming and exposed to violent games, the greater the damage.
On each of the three test days, the study saw 70 undergraduate participants exposed to either violent games – including Call of Duty 4 (VIDEO trailer) and Condemned 2 (VIDEO trailer) – or passive titles – including DiRT 2 and Pure – for 20 minutes at a time.
After playing, participants were asked to then read the start of a story, and then at the end come up with 20 possible follow-on actions the protagonist could take, with the players of violent games opting for more aggressive solutions when compared to the passive players.
Then, participants were told that there was another participant in another room, and that they had to compete with them by playing a 25-trial videogame, with the aim of being the first person to respond to visual cues on screen.
The winner would then have the power of sending the other person a ‘noise blast’ through their headphones – such as the sound of nails down a chalkboard or a dentist drill. Players of violent games leaned towards sending their opponent a louder, more prolonged sound, while passive players were kinder to their fellow participant.
It should be noted however that there actually was no other participant, just in case someone got their ear drums blown out.
By the end of the study the research found, “people who played a violent video game for three consecutive days showed increases in aggressive behaviour and hostile expectations each day they played. Meanwhile, those who played non-violent games showed no meaningful changes in aggression or hostile expectations over that period.
Imagine what happens when an already disturbed individual with mental illness who has bonding issues is exposed to such violent videos over a prolonged period of time? Ever wonder how some one could become so desensitized that they would have no empathy in killing 6 and 7 year old children? These games reward you for for shooting your victims multiple times and multiple head shots folks. Hmm, sound familiar? What every happened to the video games Donkey Kong, Dig-Dug, Breakout and Space Invaders? What the hell happened to our country and culture that such violence like what exists in actual war is now the norm?
Possible Motive … Mother was Planning to Commit Sandy Hill Elementary School Killer to a Psychiatric Facility
FOX News is reporting a possible motive for the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre …
According to a lifelong resident of Newtown, CT, 20 year old Adam Lanza may have done on a shooting rampage last Friday, killing his mother and then going to the Sandy Hook Elementary School and murdering 26 people, including 20 children after learning his mother had petitioned the court to have him committed.
The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility, according to a lifelong resident of the area who was familiar with the killer’s family and several of the victims’ families.
Adam Lanza, 20, targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than she loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25, who grew up not far from where the shooting took place. Flashman, a U.S. Marine, is the son of a pastor at an area church where many of the victims’ families worship.
“From what I’ve been told, Adam was aware of her petitioning the court for conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed,” Flashman told FoxNews.com. “Adam was apparently very upset about this. He thought she just wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry. I think this could have been it, what set him off.”
