I know and appreciate Sen. Tim Johnson’s position on guns and the Second Amendment. I would ask him to ask the progressive liberals he is in contact with who are anti-gun and anti-second amendment why is it the progressive liberals acquire guns, then kill [movie-goers] and children in schools? Why are no conservative NRA members involved in mass shootings?I don't have a dog in this fight, and I don't know the answer. But I do know what I posted earlier: But this pretty much says it all: weapons prosecutions decline to lowest level in a decade, and topping the list: Chicago. Apparently even the Senate knows that.

And this is why I love blogging. Had I not blogged, I never would searched for this, nor would I have found this particular article: "Islam, Terror, and Political Correctness."
One can add Islamist Umar Farouk Abdulmuttalab to the list above.
President Obama’s initial description of the young Nigerian Muslim who attempted to bring down an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day (“an isolated extremist”) also prompted charges from conservatives that his administration fails to recognize the link between Islamic radicalism and terrorism.
According to a variety of media reports, the Nigerian, Umar Farouk Abdulmuttalab, was fitted with his explosives-laden underwear in Yemen and was in contact there with Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born radical cleric and al Qaeda recruiter who also corresponded by email with Maj. Hasan before the Fort Hood shooting spree.The aircraft in which Umar Farouk Abdulmuttalab was also designated a gun-free zone.
