The Shroud of Gun Control has Fallen

Published

on

“No one is trying to take your guns.”

How many times have we heard this leftist narrative when the subject of gun control comes up? I’ve heard it literally thousands of times. They’ve simply spouted that they want “common sense” measures in place to prevent mass shootings. Of course, when you bring up gun-control cities like Chicago and DC they come up with some excuse as to why it doesn’t work there. One thing always remains the same: “I respect the 2nd Amendment.”

Senator Kamala Harris spoke this very sentence a few weeks ago right before saying “they are killing our babies,” ironically just days after tweeting that Republicans were “immoral” for wanting to ban abortions after 20 weeks, when abortions require a procedure that requires live vivisection of babies who feel pain.

Well, the narrative is over. They don’t respect the 2nd Amendment. They want to repeal it. Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote yesterday that the 2nd Amendment is outdated and should be repealed. Make no mistake, while they may not all admit it, this is how leftists all feel.

In addition to Steven’s statement, just in the last few weeks:

  • The Illinois legislature passed a bill to confiscate guns from 18-20 year olds
  • The GA legislature had a bill introduced to confiscate guns
  • A NC sheriff’s candidate suggested that he was fine confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens by killing them

Some on the left are admonishing these moves and statements, but that is only because they want to maintain the illusion that they don’t share these views. Don’t be fooled, they very much do.

Yes, the left is actually suggesting that people who don’t conform to their ideas on gun control be killed, which is WHY we have a 2nd Amendment in the first place.

What to do

I want to give President Trump the benefit of the doubt when he sought to seek some sort of compromise, but if the Left has proven anything over the last year or so, it is that no compromise will ever mollify them. Therefore, the compromises we’ve already made with the National Firearms Act and other gun control measures are not only enough, but too much. It’s time to start taking back ground, as Missouri Senate candidate Austin Petersen boldly proclaimed to me in a recent interview. We can’t be afraid to say that YES, we SHOULD be able to have weapons of war. That’s what the 2nd Amendment is FOR, to put government in check. We need to stop “gunsplaining” as the Left is now calling it about the difference between automatic and semi-automatic and the difference between ARs and M4s. We should be able to have whatever we damn well please. I don’t have a problem in this day in age with having criminal background checks. Those can be done in a few minutes.

Beyond that, let’s quit playing political defense on this issue and start playing political offense. Otherwise, the Left has made it clear they’ll have us playing violent defense. They’re coming for us, folks. I thought MAYBE we’d have a couple more years, but they’re coming for us NOW. They WANT the totalitarian regime they claim the Trump Administration to be, but they want it under a Barack Obama or a Hilary Clinton or a Kamala Harris. When you have Sheriff’s candidates suggesting they kill citizens to confiscate guns, yeah, it’s time to stop compromising. They aren’t marching for their lives; they’re marching to take ours if we don’t give up our freedom.

    Every Democrat (and Republican?) running 2018 mid terms needs to clarify their stance of gun control and if they want to repeal 2nd Amendment. This could wash out their blue wave in November.

ICE gets media beating for taking illegal immigrant into custody over Mexican homicide warrant

ICE gets media beating for taking illegal immigrant into custody over Mexican homicide warrant

It’s the type of story the media craves. An illegal immigrant, Joel Arrona-Lara, who “hasn’t done anything wrong” was detained by ICE agents while transporting his pregnant wife to the hospital. She ended up having to drive herself the rest of the way before delivering their son.

The spin is predictable. They skim over the fact that he has an arrest warrant in Mexico for homicide while putting all the focus on his wife’s dilemma. They even attempt to cast doubt on the warrant because the lawyer for the family says he couldn’t find a record of the warrant. This last part is most peculiar because it would be simple for a major media outlet to confirm the existence of the warrant. They did, of course, but they won’t report that when they have a better quote from the lawyer denying its existence.

Eventually details will emerge about the warrant, but not until the media inflicts as much damage as possible on ICE and anyone in favor of legal immigration being the proper way to enter the country.

Here’s the story. If you click through, you’ll even get a link at the bottom to the family’s new GoFundMe page:

ICE Detains Man Driving Pregnant Wife To Deliver Baby, Says He Is Wanted For Homicide In Mexico

https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2018/08/18/joel-arrona-detained-by-ice-san-bernardino-driving-wife-to-deliver-baby/Her husband Joel Arrona-Lara was driving his wife to the hospital for a scheduled Cesarean section Wednesday afternoon when they had to stop to get gas. That’s when their car was approached by two SUVs. Maria said they were officers with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The mother of five was then asked to show her identification and complied. When the agents asked Arrona-Lara, the couple said he didn’t have the ID on him, but that they lived nearby and could go get it for them. The agents then asked Arrona-Lara to exit the vehicle, searched the car for weapons, and put Arrona into custody, leaving Maria alone at the gas station.

My take

There’s no doubt the circumstances surrounding all of this are unfortunate. Pregnant wives should not have to drive themselves to the hospital for a scheduled C-section. On the other hand, suspected murderers shouldn’t be entering the country in the first place. That point won’t be mentioned by mainstream media.

ICE has a responsibility to take people like Arrona-Lara into custody so it can be determined whether or not they should be deported. There may have even been a certain degree of leeway given had there been no records other than his status as an illegal immigrant, but being a suspected murderer with an arrest warrant took away any chance at leeway. The ICE agents did the right thing.

As a legal immigrant, I have no sympathy for those who cheat the system and break our laws. Blaming the ICE agents for doing their job correctly in order to keep us safe is the type of insanity mainstream media loves to sell us.

The real reason Ocasio-Cortez is afraid of the press

The real reason Ocasio-Cortez is afraid of the press

For at least the second time, reporters were barred from covering an event featuring Socialist Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The campaign’s reason: we want attendees to feel comfortable since there’s so much national press covering her.

This is an absolutely ridiculous excuse, of course. Nobody goes to a campaign event without knowing the press will (should) be there. It doesn’t make them less comfortable and may actually give some a sense of security knowing the answers to their questions will be judged by more than the audience at hand. That’s one of the reasons for the press in the first place, to give information about an event to people who cannot attend.

Instead, the press is getting another roadblock:

Ocasio-Cortez bans press from covering campaign event

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/17/ocasio-cortez-bans-press-from-covering-campaign-event.htmlAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist star running for New York’s 14th congressional district, is facing criticism after her campaign banned journalists from covering a town hall meeting with voters this week.

The Queens Chronicle, a local news outlet, reported that the campaign for the 28-year-old progressive prevented reporters from attending a campaign event in Corona on Sunday, even though it was open to the rest of the public. The campaign reportedly barred reporters from a prior event as well.

It’s conspicuous that a local publication was barred because it runs contrary to the narrative the campaign is trying to sell. So why is she being hidden from reporters at these types of events?

My Take

It’s clear that her exposure is her best friend and worst enemy. Being talked about is a politician’s best friend on the campaign trail, but it also offers a risk of failure. This is most common in events like the town hall meetings she is holding because she’ll be forced to think on her feet.

What if she can’t think on her feet? What if her answers when placed in an unscripted situation the type of answers many would expect from an inexperienced socialist?

Until she’s ready to handle the pressure of having press cover these events, she won’t be ready to hold public office at this level. The House of Representatives isn’t for people who need to be protected from their own answers.

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

One of my biggest pet peeves is the attempt by atheists to use “science” to disprove the Bible. It’s unfortunate on many levels, not the least of which being Pascal’s Wager, but the strangest part is how much of science must be ignored in order to make the claim a Biblical worldview runs counter to modern science.

Some may object to this topic being part of mostly political news site, but it’s been more widely covered in recent years by liberal sites attempting to paint the Biblical worldview in a negative light, so it’s good to give equal time to the counterarguments.

There are better videos than Ken Ham’s discussion on the topic, but few are more easily understood. It’s well worth the hour.
