My preference was to privately mourn for the families affected by the senseless killing of children and school staff in Newtown, CT this past Friday. I’d spent many a summer weekend on Candlewood Lake in Danbury; Newtown was the next town over from Danbury & was where my kid sister lived in the early 90’s. So Ron and I spent the past few days consoling our neighbors, playing with the kiddos on our street, trying to quietly pray & reflect in our own way. We watched no news shows until this day, but one thing I should have done was stay off the Internet.
On the Gateway Pundit blog, Jim Hoft linked to a Freedom’s Outpost story about how liberals were using Facebook and Twitter to come out against guns. Among the selection of tweets advocating for the murder of NRA President Keene and all NRA members was a name familiar to me; probably familiar to many readers of Houston’s Liberal blog sites.
I’ve pasted a screen shot from the Freedom’s Outpost story in case NASA employee and Democrat Precinct 699 Chair John Cobarruvias of the Houstonblog Bay Area Houston tries to delete his tweet (warning language):
I’d like an investigation into the threats against my friends and my husband Ron…all NRA members.
