Krauthammer on Sandy Hook: Let’s Form a Really, Really Bipartisan Commission

thOne of the most maddening aspects of living in a 24-hour news society is that there’s just too danged much news. Take Charles Krauthammer, for instance. Too much airtime on his hands.

The Daily Caller:

On Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer offered a proposition that could offer legislators in Washington, D.C. the chance to avoid a kneejerk reaction to last week’s shooting in Newton, C.T.

Krauthammer’s hypothetical committee apparently would be different from the task force headed by Vice President Joe Biden in that it would be fashioned much like the 2002 9/11 Commission, which both then-President George W. Bush and Congress had a hand in establishing.

“There are people who want to use this as a partisan advantage or to scapegoat the NRA or to win over one side in this argument,” Krauthammer said. “I think one way to get around that in the passion of the moment is to do what Joe Lieberman suggested. To appoint a commission — this is not to put it off indefinitely — we had a commission after 9-11 because there is going to be a rush to judgment on this. I think it’s likely that we’re going to pass weapons laws that will be completely useless and I think it would be far better to appoint a commission to report in three months, six months, maybe Lieberman, maybe Giuliani to head it and to report and to look not just at guns, which is the only place where liberals want to look, but to look at the other two elements of any mass shooting.”

Oh, I get it! A kneejerk reaction to avoid a kneejerk reaction.

Rudy Giuliani? Joe Lieberman?

Charles, this is why your parents sent you to Harvard? Form a commission, headed by two East Coast antigun liberals? With conservative thinking like this we don’t even need Piers Morgan fagging off over at CNN.

Take vacation time, Charles. President Obama just invested gun control in the brain trust of Joseph Biden;  the Democrats and left-wing media do not, I repeat, DO NOT need the Republicans’ help. Okay?

    It might be productive to look into whether FEMA’s National Preparedness Directorate, specifically the Homeland Security’s Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) was involved with Sandy Hook.

    Their mission is to help government entities all over the country run simulated mass casualty exercises, of many different types, before an actual event occurs. During the evaluation part, everyone’s role is analyzed, and “gaps, deficiencies and vulnerabilities are remedied prior to a real incident.”

    According to the HSEEP’s on-line document, actors and players are used to make the exercises more reality-based.
