Colorado teenage gunman had 'very strong beliefs about gun laws' and Republicans
NY Daily News ^ | 12/14/13 | DEBORAH HASTINGS

Posted on 12/14/2013 7:31:09 AM PST by jimbo123

He was bullied for his outspoken opinions and didn't care much for Republicans.

Karl Pierson, 18, who stormed his Colorado high school brandishing a shotgun and bearing hatred for his debate coach, critically injured a 15-year-old fellow student before shooting himself to death Friday afternoon as he was cornered by heavily armed police.

"He had very strong beliefs about gun laws and stuff," said junior Abbey Skoda, who shared a class with Pierson during her freshmen year, The Denver Post reported. "I also heard he was bullied a lot."

After undergoing surgery Friday, the injured girl was listed in critical, but stable, condition on Saturday.

On his Facebook page, he seemed to make fun of Republicans, writing "you republicans are so cute" and posting an image that read: "The Republican Party: Health Care: Let 'em Die, Climate Change: Let 'em Die, Gun Violence: Let 'em Die, Women's Rights: Let 'em Die, More War: Let 'em Die. Is this really the side you want to be on?" The Denver Post reported.

On Saturday, his Facebook comments had been wiped from his page.

Odd how it’s always liberal whackos that shoot up places. Of course it makes sense in the context of their not respecting the sanctity of life.

Time after time after time after time, these occurrences are being perpetrated by those with non conservative values or beliefs.

Libs never understand that THEY are the problems in society.

Oh so he was “bullied” by those nasty conservatives.

You could say he was the perfect liberal in the making. Lose an argument and resort to violence. Standard operating procedure of the left.

Tracy Murphy, the school's librarian and debate coach, was the target of Karl Pierson’s rampage, students said. He left campus, trying to lure the shooter away.

Trying to lure the shooter away??? Yeh -- right!

I'm sure that's debatable.

Expected story from Chris Matthews: "The poor boy was so bullied by tea baggers that he turned the guns he so loathed against their advocates. If only he hadn't been so bullied by those evil tea baggers."

Well, given that liberals lose a lot of arguments when logic is involved (debating team?) then there will be a lot of resulting violence.

But hey, he was bullied.

Or, he was taking Ambien.

Or something.

All the killers have been democrats of children of Democrats... Odd how the New York Times and Washington Post have missed this one important tidbit.

Maybe rather than banning guns we should ban democrats.

Just repeatedly quote the headline "Colorado teenage gunman had 'very strong beliefs about gun laws' and Republicans" with subtle hints that he was opposed to gun laws and favored Republicans. There you have it: Crazed, gun-nut Republican kills student at school. (and don't mention that the only killing was his own suicide. shhhhh!)

IMHO, anyone who lashes out at those that espouse acting within natural law and self-evident truths is functioning in the unnatural and self-imposed relative “truths”. This is either because or ignorance, mental illness, damaged tissue, drugs, any or all of these.

In one Facebook post, Pierson attacks the philosophies of economist Adam Smith, who through his invisible-hand theory pushed the notion that the free market was self-regulating. In another post, he describes himself as “Keynesian.”

Sure sounds like Obama voter...

Liberalism is a mental disorder and sometimes, one of ‘em gets hold of a gun.

We need gun control laws for democrats aka STATISTS!

It was Obama himself who told the Obamajugend and union goons “I want you to argue with them and get in their face!”.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCMDur9CDZ4
Barack Obama tells a crowd of supporters - I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face!

And at a 2008 Democrat Rally:
http://www.factcheck.org/2011/01/obama-guns-and-the-untouchables/

Chozick, June 13, 2008: He [Obama] warned that the general election campaign could get ugly. “They’re going to try to scare people. They’re going to try to say that ‘that Obama is a scary guy,’ ” he said. A donor yelled out a deep accented “Don’t give in!”

“I won’t but that sounded pretty scary. You’re a tough guy,” Obama said.

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

My theory is that they are going to prove how dangerous guns can be by killing a bunch of people.
They are sacrificing themselves and their victims to try and prove their point.
