Lilliputian sportswriter Mike Lupica mouths off about Virgin Killer Elliot Rodger, NRA, Gun Control: Stick to sports, Mike, you’re out of your depth
I’m all for free speech. But, it amazes me that sports columnist for the NY Daily News, Mike Lupica, seems to think that he has license to enter into social commentary. If you want a description of a sporting event, or a children’s book about sports, Mike is your guy. But, if one is looking for insightful political commentary on the events of the day, Mike Lupica is about as inept as Barack Obama creating jobs. He’s strictly an emotional washing machine of incoherent Liberal drivel that have absolutely no relevance in the “real world”.
Such is the case with Lupica’s latest foray into “we need to take away all guns because a crazy person might get a hold of them and kill people” argument.
Wayne LaPierre, the gun nut who runs the National Rifle Association and is so often the face and voice of that association, likes to say that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, as if the principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the late Dawn Hochsprung, could have saved herself and those children if she’d just been packing.
That’s exactly the point, Mike! Had a trained school administrator with a gun been on duty at Sandy Hook ALL those kids would be alive today. But, what do progressives like Mike Lupica want instead? Gun free zones where kids are at greater risk because that’s where the criminally minded know it’s like shooting fish in a barrel.
Lupica also writes:
But the reality of a country that gets lousier with its own stupid gun culture by the day is that too often we have to wait, after more killing, for the bad guy with the gun to stop himself.
The country is getting lousier because of Liberalism! Progressive ideas like holding a stupid sign with a hashtag has NO EFFECT IN REALITY!
That is what finally happened with Elliot Rodger, 22, after six more innocent people were slaughtered, the last four – including the shooter, who had to kill some people because he couldn’t get a date – with semiautomatic weapons that always make the killing good and fast.
Where was Mike Lupica when some teen went on a stabbing spree with a knife? I didn’t hear a peep from him. Oh, but when a wacko like Elliot Rodger goes off Lupica puts down his scorecard and pontificates with the same old Liberal emotionalism? Gimmie a break and go watch a sporting event. If Mike Lupica is writing about something that doesn’t contain a ball or strike, or touchdown or fumble, don’t waste your time.
