Barack Obama Inspired Jared Loughner To Shoot Gabrielle Giffords Chicago Style

by | 9th, January 2011

WANT to know why nihilistic lunatic Jared Lee Loughner shot 20 people, killing six? Want to know why he shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and murdered a nine-year-old girl called Christina Green? Sarah Plain inspired him, right? Those crosshairs and her command: “Don’t retreat, instead- RELOAD!” They did it?

Well, so says one partisan argument. The other one says Barack Obama and his language of violence did it. Back in 2008, Obama told the Republicans:

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

Blame the gun:

Between 1994 and 2004 when the assault weapons ban was in effect, gun manufacturers such as Glock could not market handguns with high-capacity magazines. If the ban were still in effect, it’s less likely that Loughner could have obtained a gun with a high-capacity magazine. Stores could legally only sell used high-capacity magazines at that time, and new magazines could not be manufactured.

President Bush backed the ban, and an amendment to extend it passed in the Senate in 2004 but was never voted on by the House.
