Dallas Mass Shooting Is Deadliest Day for Law Enforcement Since 9/11 but no United States Flags at Half-Staff.

President Obama renewed his push for gun control measures Friday as he condemned the “senseless murders” of five Dallas police officers in a coordinated sniper attack overnight.

The attack, which also injured at least seven, was carried out during an anti-police brutality protest. It was the nation's deadliest day for law enforcement since 9/11. President Obama, speaking at the start of a NATO summit in Poland, decried the “vicious, calculated and despicable attack.” He vowed “justice will be done” and voiced support for the “extraordinarily difficult job” of America’s law enforcement officers. “Today is a wrenching reminder of the sacrifices that they make for us,” Obama said. But before wrapping his remarks, the president once again returned to the issue of gun laws. “We also know that when people are armed with powerful weapons, unfortunately it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic, and in the days ahead we’re going to have to consider those realities as well,” Obama said.

Less than a month ago, June 12, 2016, Orlando nightclub shooting happened.

That same day:

As a mark of respect for the victims of the act of hatred and terror perpetrated on Sunday, June 12, 2016, in Orlando, Florida, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, June 16, 2016. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

    The creatures that want to take over, control all...want us to go banana's, go wacko, go crazy so they can take more of our liberties away and distract us from their ongoing agenda.

    How do you get this across to everyone?
    If we didn't play their game...they wouldn't know what to do.
    PS...I think most of these terrorist and cop shooters are getting paid to do so...

    The big totalitarian wants his unilateral way again. The only reason he hasn't acted is he knows it will cause an uproar that will succeed, and kill gun control swell for a while.

    I really want to see what Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter have to say about this. "Terrible tragedy, but it could've been avoided if black people were not so discriminated against."

    President Obama, decried the “vicious, calculated and despicable attack.”
    He should know, having carried out so many such attacks on innocent Americans. What will he use as an excuse for martial law?

      There will be no declaration of martial law.

        Please explain your reasoning, Animal.

          I will do so, at length, in a blog post next week, and will post a link here. Thumbnail:

          1) The guy is lazy. He will, next January, enjoy a luxurious retirement on the taxpayer's dime, and will be free to criticize and agitate.
          2) He is heavily and aggressively campaigning for his hand-picked successor, Her Imperial Majesty Hillary I.
          3) He has no pretext for a nation-wide martial law declaration, not without provoking an overwhelming response.
          4) People on the right made the same paranoid claim about Bill Clinton in 2000, and lefties made the same claim about Bush43 in 2008. Nothing happened then, and nothing will happen now.

          I have a standing offer for a wager; I have 1000 rounds of XM193 5.56 ammo on stripper clips that I will wager against a like amount of ammo that this will not happen. Are you game?

            Let's consider an alternative scenario~
            Let's say it looks like Bad Hair Day will beat or has just beat Shillary.
            Trump has stated he will rip apart all Obama has done, starting with Obamacare, I believe.
            Don't think the indeed lazy Narcissist-In-Chief will have much stomach for anyone ripping apart what that socialist wimp views as his legacy.
            Trump wins? I foresee Soros and MoveOn paid protesters escalating into full-scale riots all over the USA.
            This will be done in cahoots with the also endangered sweet transsexual restroom legacy Rainbow by night White House.
            The Commander-Of-Grief shall then declare martial law to protect his "oh, me precious" legacy with the enraptured zeal of the Golem.

              No. He won't.

              I'm working on the long version of above to post probably next Friday; I'll be on the road much of next week. Another tidbit: Martial law on a national scale isn't just unlikely, it's just not possible.

              It's not even a good conspiracy theory. It's just silly.

                Wah, you called my alternative silly!
                You being mean to me!
                Seriously, should Trump win, hang on to your hat!
                All hell will be breaking loose!

                  Sure. And that's one of the reasons I'm going to bite my lip and vote for him. Whatever a President Trump does in office, he'll have the legacy media crawling up his ass. If the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua is elected, well, I think we've seen how that will play out; there is apparently no outrage on which that the Clintons won't be given a pass.

                  It most certainly will. The Demorats never give up. There will be more paid protesters and rioters like never before seen. The media will be in a frenzy calling for another vote.

                    Right on. That prediction calling for another vote should Trump wins has also occurred to me.
                    Something like Florida chads shall hang again as Team Al Gore claimed.

    Politically incorrect ALERT. Dont read if you need political correctness.

    No one wants to see people gunned down. BUT, police have been trigger happy and have indeed taken their emotions out on black people (maybe deserved in some instances even). I am white, but I just feel better when police are NOT around. I feel that they are just looking to cost me money and control my peaceful life. They deserve their reputation in a lot of cases, and they are RARELY around to prevent crimes, but only show up afterwards.

    So when cops go wild and kill people like has been happening, no wonder there is backlash. No wonder the blacks are rising up and feel disenfranchised. No wonder that some of them flip out and shoot cops.

    We should take that as an indication that there is a real government vs citizens problem and fix that.
