I came across a new Gun Law that has passed the Mississippi Legislature and has been signed by Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, that may actually save lives. One of the things that I am always complaining about is that of the more than 22,000 gun laws on the books now, none of them has ever saved a life. But alas, we may now have one, and it goes into effect immediately.
Of course, this law would not even be necessary if they hadn’t previously passed a Gun Control law that made it illegal in the first place, but this new law now makes it legal for a Continue reading
Here we go again. 50 people killed this time and 53 more were injured in a “Gun Free Zone” in Orlando, Florida. The people never had a chance. The gay bar, Pulse Nightclub, where all of this went down was posted with “No Guns Allowed” signs. In addition, Florida law prohibits guns in an establishment that serves alcohol.
This is to some degree, preventable. Our lawmakers and politicians continue to believe that our society needs what they call “gun free zones”, ostensibly to keep guns out of the building, arena, or gathering place. But are criminals or terrorists going to care about that? Well not so far as not taking a weapon into the place goes. In fact, they know that it makes for an easy target. Terrorists will continue to target Gun Free Zones as long as they exist. Let’s face it, Gun Free Zones are Continue reading
This keeps happening and yet it is predictable, and to some degree preventable. Our lawmakers and politicians continue to believe that our society needs what they call “gun free zones”, ostensibly to keep guns out of the building, arena, or gathering place. But gun free zones are becoming known as “killing zones”.
A few weeks ago, we reported about a senseless shooting in Charleston, S.C. This time the location is in Chattanooga, TN where a Muslim man shot through the windows of a military recruiting station located in a strip mall. Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a naturalized American citizen, born in Kuwait, with citizenship in Jordan, woke up in the morning and decided that this form of terrorism, shooting up two military centers with an AK-47, would be appropriate for his unknown cause. He paid for it with his life.
According to Sgt. 1st Class Robert Dodge, Continue reading
Once again liberal law makers have put their own constituents in harm’s way and the unthinkable has happened – 9 innocent victims were needlessly massacred while studying the Bible at their church. When are they going to realize that so called “gun free zones” are no less than a “killing zone” for some drugged up or mentally ill wacko who is looking to kill innocents and be assured that no one there will be carrying a weapon and be able to stop him? When are they going to realize that these same wackos intentionally look for gun free zones to carry out their evil plans?
I suppose it’s possible that lawmakers may not even know that they have created a ‘killing zone’ out of a church, but South Carolina statutes clearly state that churches and places of religious study are on the list of places that one may not enter with a gun even if you have a permit for concealed carry or otherwise. They simply created the law to fit their agenda. The thing is that it is not necessary by law for a church to put up a sign with a silhouette of a gun in a red circle and a red line through it. It is not necessary for a church to display a sign stating that it is a “gun free zone” the way schools do. But they may as well put up a sign saying “KILLING ZONE” because that is what is was and is in Charleston, or for that matter, all schools and churches in South Carolina or anywhere else for that matter. A “Gun Free Zone” and/or a sign stating such, will not protect anyone.
Yes, it was indeed Continue reading
Dateline: Aurora, Colorado, July 20, 2012 – A gunman dressed all in black and wearing a gas mask massacres 12 people attending a midnight premier showing of the “Batman, The Dark Knight Rises”, and injures at least 50 more at the Century Theaters in Aurora. This was also in a place that is a “Gun Free Zone”, as Century Theater posted a “No Guns Allowed” sign on the front doors.
Yet another tragic mass shooting, this time involving what appears to be an otherwise sane person by all initial accounts, who for some unknown reason shot theater goers in the Rocky Mountain metropolitan city of Aurora, Colorado.
As usual the media jumped right in with its usual slipshod, inept attempt to investigate the incident and the shooter that only resulted in journalistic malpractice. Early Friday Brian Ross with ABC News checks out the name James Holmes on his I-Phone and finds one of the James Holmes listed is an active TEA Party member, so he gleefully reports that he is the “Batman Killer”. Oops! Didn’t check his facts again. Turns out he wasn’t the same guy. Just the possibility that the TEA Party could be tarnished and tied to this was enough to send Brian Ross into a frenzy and report to the world that the Batman Killer is a major TEA Party member. He later had to apologize. But I digress.
The next words out of the reporters mouths was that the gunman was carrying an “assault rifle” thought to be an AR-15 that shoots high velocity ammunition along with a pistol and a shotgun, that were bought “legally”. Now the word “legally” is added strategically. Their agenda is to put blame on the guns that are ‘so prolific’ in our society – in their minds. And the fact that someone could buy what they call an assault rifle legally is undoubtedly going to be brought the forefront in the media reporting in the next few weeks. Journalists are no doubt chomping at the bit at the notion that they are going to be able to start calling for more gun control, more extensive background checks, new gun laws, waiting periods, gun limits and wait for it – a renewal of the “assault rifle ban”.
Yes, an “assault rifle ban” just like the one that expired in the ‘90s. After all, their mantra is “let no tragedy be wasted”. They’re not going to let this go unanswered. In a press conference this afternoon, the Aurora Police Chief said that it now up to us to now start “pushing back”. Pushing back?? What the hell does that mean? I’ll tell you what that means. They are going to start the call for more gun control laws. Liberal legislators are going to be more than eager to answer the call.
So let’s just see how long before we see the first news report on calls for new gun legislation. I give it two – three days tops. After all, it is a weekend coming up.
