AZ shooter a leftist, not tea party supporter
A Second Amendment rights advocate says the liberal media and Democratic politicians are trying to blame conservatives and talk radio for the recent shooting in Tucson, even though the shooter is likely "a man of the left."
While Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords (D-Arizona) fights for her life in a hospital intensive care unit, the left is trying to piece together a right-wing-inspired motive behind the madness by irresponsibly placing blame on talk radio and the tea party movement. But Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, believes there is substantial evidence to show that suspect, Jared Lee Loughner, is an angry leftist who hates America and Christianity.
"In the back yard they found a satanic altar with a skull and some oranges before it. Kind of like Cain's offering in Scripture [Genesis 4] -- instead of the animals, he did it his way," Pratt notes. "He was anti-Christian; he was for burning the flag."
But the GOA executive director does not believe this massacre will help liberals pass any additional legislation to restrict gun rights for law-abiding citizens. "I think the new leadership of [John] Boehner (R-Ohio) and [Eric] Cantor (R-Virginia) are pretty firmly committed to the Second Amendment," Pratt suggests.
So he does not think Carolyn McCarthy's (D-New York) involvement means anything for the Democrats' cause.
