The PJ Tatler

Fellow students describe Karl Pierson as an argumentative person who always had to be right.

Senior Chris Davis, 18, was among many students Saturday trying to make sense of Pierson’s shooting rampage.

“He was a weird kid,” Davis said. “He’s a self-proclaimed communist, just wears Soviet shirts all the time.”

Rhetorical aside: Would he have have gotten away with wearing Nazi shirts?

Pierson became easily aggravated, “always liked to be right” and didn’t like losing, Davis said.

“It seems realistic, now, that he did it,” Davis added.

Pierson also used Democrat talking points to attack Republicans online. The 18-year-old condescended to people who disagreed with him as “cute.” He also favored tighter gun control laws.

Perhaps gun background check laws do need to be modified to make it more difficult for leftists to buy guns.

Update: Video — student says he was “very proud of being a socialist.”

Flashback: Based on Chris Davis’ story, Pierson wore Soviet shirts to school “all the time.” Fair enough, free country and all that. But remember what happened when a kid wore an NRA shirt to his school — in West Virginia, of all places?

You know, on Oglethorpe, I've seen a few students wearing T-shirts modeled after the Soviet flag. I actually had to barely restrain myself from doing something very stupid like go ballistic and attack them on Campus due to the intense rage I feel about the socialists, communists, and all forms of Atheism due to their persecution of us.

Let's see: "He always had to be right", but his rhetoric was loony drivel.

Uh, huh! I don't remember Arapahoe County as being on another planet.

Perhaps he was just preparing for the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Chris Davis was in favor of stricter gun control and then shoots up a school and targets the librarian. How did he get the gun? Where are the parents on this?

Perhaps a litmus test IS in order before being allowed to exercise your 2nd Amendment rights?

If you are:
- a liberal
- a democrat
- a fan of socialism
- are into devil worship
- are (or have been) under the influence of psychiatric medications

.....then you aren't allowed to own a firearm.

Just checking off at least 2 of the above categories should be enough to red flag you.

Isn't that the approach Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer want with regards to how to classify guns as evil?

Give a list of characteristics and if any single firearm has 2 or more of those characteristics it's verboten!!!

Let's apply the same logic to gun owners with the above list of known characteristics these shooters all seem to have in common!

That's a 'common sense' gun control law I could live with!

Yes, Brian.

Anyone who's willing to give up YOUR rights through force of government is an individual who, by definition, is dangerous to society. Statists should never be allowed to own a gun. They believe their views/beliefs/ideology supersede your individual rights.

Constitutionalists can easily be trusted with guns. They don't want to infringe on the rights of others, to the point they are willing to stand up for the rights of others and even die to protect the rights of others. I'm always thrilled to meet a Constitutionalist who carries. You'll never be in safer company.
