    There's a CT out there from a subset of gun clutchers who claim that these lunatics committing mass murder have been goaded into it by Liberals. Liberals!

    And our motivation, according to these fools? To generate horror and outrage as leverage to exact laws that will disarm citizens.

    So the increase in mass murders, according to their script, is a Liberal plot to change the laws to force helplessness on the citizenry, to clear the way for government takeover.

    I found this crazy-assed theory more than once on blogs attached to network news sites and it won't be long before callers bring it to talk radio.

    When you think about how estranged from reality a mind has to be to concoct this shit, and then realize that these wingnuts have easy access to automatic weapons ... gawd help us.

    I was a peripheral visionary. I could see the future, but only way off to the side. ~ Steven Wright
