The Peace Movement Needs Pre-Planned Responses to Sandy Hook-Like Massacres

The Peace Movement Needs Pre-Planned Responses to Events in the News.


The peace groups first response was to just watch and listen to the news on the shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Some groups are quick to respond, Mothers Against Drunk Driving is always ready with a prepared response, of the science community and the latest asteroid-meteor combinations only praising the subsidizing of amateur astronomers was prepared ahead of time.


Peter Wlasuk, a plumber, found visits to one of his repeat customers somewhat eerie. A beautiful, tastefully decorated house with a low-light, windowless basement with a bedroom and bath attached filled with posters of a tanks and guns. The boys liked to talk gun trivia. The boys later Lanza by himself seemed to spend his life down there with computer video games.


Adam Lanza was obsessed with one video game. So was Mohammed Merah who attacked a Jewish Orthodox school in France, Anders Breivik who spent six months, day and night, before stopping to plan an attack on a youth camp and the Norwegian equivalent of the White House bragged about the same video game Call for Duty helping him practice for his massacre,


I would like to see peace groups and anti-gun groups have a joint meeting where they would watch sections of Call for Duty on a big screen then discuss it afterwords.


In schools with the most gun violence many kids think their only choice in life is dire poverty or getting a job with a gun in armed forces, freelancing with a gun on the street or with a gang. Most high profile incidents involved people planning to have a job with a gun, or have one or had one with the armed forces. There are complaints about the School-to-Prison pipeline and that cops in school makes the gun culture more overwhelming as kids that have cursing matches or much less end up in handcuffs. Armed Forces recruiters frequenting the place is part of the gun culture in poor schools. Let’s have a joint protest picketing, at an Armed Forces recruiting office, then march to the closest armaments store as part of the same protest.


All the articles like this one ignore the one exception, James Holmes who liked to play Batman Villain using a live audience at a movie as a prop, but who earlier had spent every moment he could playing rock star on the Guitar Hero game on a silent guitar. I plan to deal with specially with it instead of an earlier ramble in,

Guns, Gun Posters & Gun Games, the Real Lesson of the Sandy Hook Massacre


The following is the missing link to Gun, Gun Posters &

There was a lot more accusations against gun video games and gun experience in the armed forces before the James Homes attacking at a Batman movie, whose favorate role was as a rock star in Guitar Hero. We refuse to blame computers however commercials in the old addiction to TV day and night kept coming back to the real world through commercial breaks this would not be giving up intense technology to mandate intermission brakes in the action.

I'm retired in Philadelphia. Non religious but there seems to be a life force that I see as more personal than is usually expressed.

I was raised a Quaker (common with Christian Jewish intermarriage back them) But my father was a total pacifist and during World War II, at the time that being so was difficult.

Upbringing included father trying not to get physical, yet still defend us kids from my harsh stepmother until she got her citizenship papers, after which they could get divorced. Been involved in peace issues since the anti-fallout shelter protests through Vietnam and Iraq.

I wrote "Greedy Little Squirrels and Lifeboat ethics,” 1977, when the Moonies were coming to America and got heavily harassed by them. I also think bin Laden is extremely dangerous like the leader of a barroom brawl, who has been manipulating this country into using the US to get Muslims angry enough to join his suicidal permanent war group. Before 9/11 young Muslims rebelled by wearing by covering their hair a little less than expected and at least winking at each other, now he changed rebellion into being militancy. The Northern Alliance would have been legitimately in charge long ago had he not baited the US into entering Afghanistan.

Obama is making a mistake in my mind with how to stop bin Laden’s dream of permanent war in a divided world but less of a mistake than most anyone else would. If due to currency collapses from out ever more expensive weapons the US stops fighting al Qaeda, then other counties will. If it ends up being Iran, the Sunni Shiite divide will be enormous. Al Qaeda is already convinced that the atheist China is a serious enemy, and the Russians have fought for brutally and inadvertently convinced far more Muslims than the US did that they considered Islam itself to be the enemy.

I never stopped supporting Jimmy Carter when everyone turned on him and I support Obama as well, but think he will have to use a lot more persuasion and less force if they aren’t going to succeed at bankrupting us. However Obama has tried less force and al Qaeda has started to respond in kind trying to limit the victim’s in the way of their primary attacks.
