Christians selected for death at Oregon college

“I will not name the shooter. I will not give him the credit he probably sought with this horrific and cowardly act.”        — Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin  discussing the massacre

In an act of anti-religious terrorism, a gunman opened fire Thursday morning at Umpqua Community College in the rural community of Roseburg Oregon. An English professor and 8 students were killed and 7 others were wounded, with three listed in critical condition.

According to a on-scene account, “The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian. If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.”

The local newspaper in the town of under 25,000 carries this report.

Barack Obama hopped on the terrorist assault to advocate for “common sense” gun laws. He neglected to add that this carnage took place on such a gun-free campus that even the single security guard was unarmed.

Like many blue states under Democrat control, Oregon recently tightened its gun regulations, leaving people less able to defend themselves. Not only are the top officers Democrats, but the party controls the state House and Senate.

The violence perpetrated by a craven terrorist should not constrain our Constitutional rights.  In 2013, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin, a strong Second Amendment advocate, wrote this letter to Vice President Joe Biden: (Click letter to enlarge)

    Sheriff Hanlin was right when he wrote this letter in 2013. Despite the vicious anti-Christian butchery at the college yesterday, his thoughts stand today. This is evidenced by the fact that Oregon’s gun control machinations were unable to halt this vicious crime.

    These student victims would have had a better chance at survival if someone had been armed and able to defend them. It’s utter lunacy that the security guard was unarmed. What kind of security did he provide? The unarmed TV comic Deputy Barney Fife with single bullet in his shirt pocket was better equipped than the man entrusted to protect the students. Gun control gives the criminal the advantage and makes the rest of us sitting ducks.

    May I respectfully suggest that every Sheriff in Arizona send a similar letter to the regieme leaders & our 2 senatorial representatives, who will SURELY support any executive order regarding gun control by obama.

      Switzerland, which has no standing army, has a “people’s militia” mentality that works quite well. Their crime rate is low because nearly everyone is armed. Gun ownership is deeply rooted in a sense of patriotic duty. History points to the fact that during WWII, Switzerland was at risk of being invaded by Germany but was spared due to widespread gun ownership.

      Several years ago when my wife and I traveled to Switzerland on vacation, the tour guide proudly told our group that nearly every Swiss man was armed and trained to shoot. Many belong to gun clubs with their families and consider shooting a wholesome family activity.

    Instead of making firearms illegal, we should require all able bodied people carry a weapon. That would stop these idiots in their tracks.
    I also agree that their name and face book pages should not be released. Let them die as anonymous killers.

  4. Patriot Dad says:

    Some news sources reporting on the carnage called it a “tragedy” as though it occurred spontaneously, unavoidably and without malice. Terrorism is much more appropriate. Good choice of word, SRAZ. And this planned and deadly crime most definitely IS anti-Christian terrorism.

    Some mothers kill there own children as we saw recently with the horrific bathtub drowning of the 2-year-old twin boys here in the valley by a crazed woman. Andrea Yates, a church going mother in Texas confessed to drowning all five of her children in their bathtub.
    Should we outlaw bathtubs? Churches? Mothers?

  6. Army Of One says:

    Despite the dispicable crime yesterday, the Sheriff’s letter is as topical today as it was when it was written. Cowering to acts of criminality doesn’t strengthen us. We are made weaker when we defer to criminals.

    It was not a mistake that our nation’s Founders placed the Second Amendment immediately after the First, which ensured free speech. They knew we needed to be able to defend that notion and our liberties, if necessary, from an over zealous government. Barack Obama wants nothing more than to disarm us and uses maniacal acts of violence to drive home his point.

    Look how well it worked in the liberal Eden of Oregon.

  7. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Obama wants to disarm law-abiding Americans while he hands over nukes to Iran.

    The “most dangerous” man on planet earth and yet his most vital personal records remain sealed under the absolute strictest “lock & key” security.

    The British press has had numerous, lengthy articles about the Oregon tragedy.

    Yesterday, there was a transcript published of a internet conversation that the shooter had with other people.
    He wrote about his admiration for the guy who shot the two TV station employees in Virginia a few weeks ago, and even posted the news stories about it.

    Disturbingly, anonymous bloggers gave him suggestions on how to go about being “successful” with his plans, and some of the suggestions including going to a school and taking multiple weapons.
    Perhaps those anonymous bloggers should be located and charged.

    Today, it is being reported that the shooter had Asperger’s Syndrome. Recall that the shooter at Sandy Hook elementary school was also said to have this same condition.

      It’s always helpful to repair the image of murderers by giving them aliments to explain away their evil acts. Nowadays, “bullying” counts as a legitimate excuse.

      As an aside, bullying (along with the junk science of global warming now rebranded climate change–when it turned out the normal cooling cycle was taking place) has reached epic proportions and takes up time in classrooms that used to be devoted to actually teaching math, American history, Western Civilization, literature and the sciences. So called honor students can’t find japan on a map or write in cursive, but they are “brilliant” members of PETA and have stopped eating “anything with eyes.”

      • Doc says:

        CIVICS, Dennis! They’ve stopped teaching Civics. If high schoolers were taught rudimentary civics, America would have VERY FEW liberals…

      • Dennis O'Brien says:

        You’re right about Civics, Doc. The truth is American students are being taught liberalism and moral relativism by their union teachers. They are addicted to their cell phones and would rather text that hold a conversation. They have no concept of American superiority and are encouraged to think we are greedy exploiters who take from the planet. The youth vote put Obama in office.. Parents need to educate their school age children with facts that counterbalance what they are being fed at school or this nation is doomed.

      • Doc says:

        So, as a parent who has to work & can’t home-school, I take every opportunity to teach my kids about Freedom, Liberty, & the Constitution. My 13 year old has called out (respectfully) his teachers on more than 1 occasion inaccurate lessons being taught in class. They know that he’s being taught REALITY @ home. Believe it or not, his current instructor has thanked me for it. He’s forced to teach what the district TELLS him to.

  9. Night Owl says:

    As Barack Obama politicized this latest slaughter of innocents by promoting gun control, Americans need to rise up in protest to furthering such violence with the foolish concept of gun free zones. .

    Gun free zones give criminals exactly what they want, which is the ability to create havoc without worry of anyone being able to defend themselves.

  10. LEO IN TSN says:

    Some have touched on the negatives of our gov’t education in an agenda-driven push to mentally enslave American youth. All True. And, there is another sinister side to that agenda that parents and citizens accept without dissent.

    The teachers unions, shaped and powered by the marxists who have stolen control, are enslaving our youth physically also. They are educating all physical and competitive activities out of youth development, and it isn’t to save the poor neglected little kids from playground injury. And so we see them outlawing swings & jungle gyms, kickball, dodgeball, playground basketball, tag, and especially games of good guy-bad guy, cowboys-Indians, cops-robbers, soldiers-muslims. Little boys who act like little boys are suspended and put on Ridalin. Little girls are told they cannot exercise & run around. Little boys who chase giggling little girls to steal a kiss on a dare are arrested and expelled. Nothing competitive or aggressive is allowed, and the harshest of disciplines are impose. And parents sit by and say “Well OK, I guess we have to be civilized?” Hogwash.

    Is it working? At the Oregon school, the students just stood and performed for the shooter, waiting to be shot. A military veteran who wanted to confront was forbidden by the college staff. At Virginia Tech several years ago, the students just sat and waited to be shot, as the shooter slowly walked among them. Why didn’t groups of students attack the shooters to subdue them?-why didn’t groups of students attack in their own defense? Because yes, it is working.

    Dumb down our students intellectually, give them diversionary toys (phones, i-pads etc) to subdue their social skills and personal initiative, and educate all competitiveness and aggressiveness out of them until what is left? Helpless young impressionable zombies doing what they are told by the gov’t controllers without objection. And the parents & citizens sit and let them take control, electing & re-electing them and never getting involved – never saying “STOP.” Thank God for courageous patriots like Sheriff John Hanlin. Now let’s go back to taking care of our kids and their futures.

    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” –President Ronald Reagan

    God bless America.
