Guns and Crime

Proof that gun-grabbers, leftist media have no interest in enforcing existing gun control laws

Published

It should come to no surprise that Obama’s crime family wanted to get weapons into the hands of criminals and terrorists.  They were soft on criminals who tried to buy guns.  Lest we forget the ATF gunwalking scandal aka “Operation Fast and Furious.”  The background check system proved to be a failure when it did not prevent Devin Patrick Kelley from buying guns.  You think this guy was going to tell the truth when he was likely going to use the weapons against his family or as it was proven weeks ago; strangers in a small town church.  No, the goal of Obama and his administration (and the consensus of progressives) was to disarm law-abiding citizens from carrying and owning guns.

Pay close attention to the video that The DC also put up in the body of the piece below.  Listen carefully to how the media uses the term “Obama’s Legacy.”  Most of the stories highlight on Trump revising the Iran deal, one deals with a Vanity Fair piece and another on an EPA rollback by the Trump administration.  If this does not prove that the media loves Democrats, the Democratic Party, progressives, and overall progressivism then nothing will and you’re part of the problem and not the solution.  Our media has done a great job of always making progressivism great and why those who oppose them are them are the enemy.

Obama Rarely Prosecuted Illegal Gun Buys | The Daily Caller

The Obama administration may have publicly aligned itself with anti-gun activists, but it consistently turned a blind eye to prosecute known criminals who tried to buy guns. Surprisingly, the Obama administration’s harshest critics are gun manufacturers themselves. “People could do what is called, ‘lie and buy,’” explained Lawrence Keane, a senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a nonprofit organization that represents gun manufacturers.

We need more guns, not fewer, but that narrative is being lost on Americans

Published

on

It has been demonstrated over and over again that when an area in the United States limits gun ownership, gun crimes go up. In Chicago, gun laws are strictest, yet gun deaths are the highest. How can this be? Perhaps criminals are less likely to play by the rules, leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless.

This is common sense and backed by data, yet leftist mainstream media continues to push out the false narrative that we need fewer guns on the “streets.” They like to use the phrase “guns on the streets” because it instills fear that gun ownership means bad guys walking around armed and ready to do harm. Intuitively Americans know there are responsible gun owners who carry, but instead of believing the reality that if more law-abiding citizens carried, fewer criminals would be willing to take their chances, the false narrative has them pushing in the wrong direction.

The numbers are troubling:

American Opinions on Gun Ownership

Robert Farago at The Truth About Guns breaks down why this is a bad sign:

Guess How Many Americans Think America Would be Safer Without Civilian Gun Ownership

http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2017/12/robert-farago/guess-how-many-americans-think-america-would-be-safer-without-civilian-gun-ownership/Still, the idea that 41 percent of Americans want to eliminate or reduce civilian gun ownership is deeply worrying. As is the idea that only 21 percent of Americans see guns as increasing public safety.

Then again, nearly the same amount of respondents (38 percent) reckon civilian gun ownership doesn’t have any impact on public safety.

That’s where the NRA, SAF, NAGR, GOA and The People of the Gun generally need to focus their pro-gun rights efforts: on the fence straddlers who aren’t antagonistic to civilian gun ownership, but don’t see a societal benefit. Yes?

 

My Take

I’ve been saved by a “good guy with a gun” and now I’m ready to be that guy if the need ever arises. I once thought it would be better if fewer people carried in public places, but I now see the error of my ways. Keep in mind that a lot of people who support gun ownership rights aren’t in favor of more guns. I was one of them. Now, I realize we need gun ownership, concealed carry, and open carry numbers to rise.

When violence breaks out, I don’t want to be the guy waiting 5-20 minutes for the police to arrive. A lot can happen in the interim as most Americans are all-too aware. It’s imperative that we start shifting the narrative back towards favoring gun ownership and carrying rights. Guns may scare people, but they should realize it’s better when good guys are carrying then when it’s just something the bad guys do. We don’t want America to turn into Chicago.

Jim Jordan: “We’re going to subpoena Andrew McCabe, subpoena Peter Strzok”

Jim Jordan Were going to subpoena Andrew McCabe subpoena Peter Strzok

If Congressman Jim Jordan’s threats are to be believed, FBI Deputy Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe and agent Peter Strzok will have some explaining to do before Congress. Jordan, a member of the House Judiciary Committee and former head of the House Freedom Caucus, has given us no reason to believe his threats shouldn’t be believed.

“Chairman Goodlatte has told us he is going to subpoena those individuals,” Jordan said in an appearance on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”

Strzok exchanged around 10,000 text messages with former FBI counsel Lisa Page. Some of the texts described extremely anti-Trump views while expressing support for his competitor, Hillary Clinton. Page and Strzok were involved in an extramarital affair at the time.

One text in particular has everyone’s interest:

I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.

The “Andy” in question may have been McCabe.

The spin

Mainstream media and Democrats are spinning this as a distraction. They claim there’s no evidence that the political opinions of people deeply involved in the Clinton email investigation swayed how they performed their jobs, but there is:

Hillary Clinton was ‘grossly negligent’… until Peter Strzok edited it to prevent criminal charges

http://noqreport.com/2017/12/14/hillary-clinton-grossly-negligent-peter-strzok-edited-prevent-criminal-charges/The edit made by Strzok changed the phrase “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.” This is important because being “grossly negligent” is a standard for criminal prosecution. If the conclusions in this report turn out to be true, it’s fair to draw the conclusion that this and other edits were made specifically to give Comey and the FBI justification for ending the investigation and recommending against criminal charges.

If it can be shown that Strzok intentionally swayed the investigation to benefit Clinton, all that’s left is determining what was discussed as the “insurance” plan and how involved McCabe was, if at all. While this is unlikely to yield real fruit, it casts a shadow of doubt on the FBI’s intentions. Was former FBI Director James Comey tainted? Is special counsel Robert Mueller tainted? Are they investigation the wrong people?

Should someone be investigating the FBI instead?
