“Gun clingers” aren’t the ones with a gun problem

Published

on

Guns are a bit of a hot topic in our country and unfortunately, the issue isn’t relenting as quickly. The facts are with Conservatives while the social left has most of the momentum.

People talk about a gun problem and assume Conservatives are the ones with it.

This month began with a viral video of a man being shot on Facebook Live. The video shows Devyn Holmes being shot by Cassandra Damper while she is pretending to be all gangsta. A few critical details arise from watching the video. Holmes does not appear to really know Damper. Damper was told by “Cadillac Coleman” that the gun wasn’t loaded prior to her cocking the pistol and shooting Holmes. Many have speculated that this was a setup to make shooting Holmes seem like an accident.

I cannot blame these people and would second that Damper and Coleman should be charged with crimes as severe as attempted murder first and second degree.

As a followup, Devin Holmes by most recent reports is recovering. Damper was initially charged with tampering with evidence but is now wanted for skipping bail after new charges came up. It seems police may also believe the video was a setup.

Enter Brenna Spencer

Brenna Spencer posted this photo that got a lot of attention and controversy. And what’s controversial about it? A young attractive educated Trump-supporting conservative woman celebrating concealed carry?

While this is exhibit #4825358 for the case of conservative women being hotter than feminists/socialists, it isn’t all that provocative. Yet leftists are losing their minds! Leftist want to shame those on the right for celebrating the 2nd Amendment. Just recall the outrage over running/yoga pants being made for concealed carry.

Young leftists readily confess that they are unfit to purchase a firearm, yet this college student defies their outcries. The celebration of the right to own and carry a firearm is under attack. Leftists want to shame us for celebrating freedom from their safe spaces. And they will not relent.

When the gun control crowd sees people celebrating this freedom, they associate this demonstration with mass shooters. There is no logical comparison but most of their side, on this issue, is without a basic understanding of that which they speak about. We are basically debating straw men, but it’s not our fault. They want to believe that celebrating gun rights is somehow correlated or contributing to mass shooting and a “gun problem” in our country.

NRA to the rescue?

There are problems associated with firearms but the tools themselves are not it.

A number of leftists decry the NRA as a terrorist organization, absent of facts. However, the NRA teaches gun safety. Tools require safe use, and the NRA provides this need. If Cassandra Damper had learned gun safety, a sincere accident would have been avoided (a premeditated homicide not so much). She would have known the difference in weight between a loaded an unloaded handgun.

She would have assumed a round in the chamber. She would not have pointed it in someone’s face in any situation. And she certainly wouldn’t have played with the trigger. Gun clingers know this. To us, this is common sense gun control. Brenna Spencer isn’t the one with a problem. Those who celebrate thug culture’s disregard for human life’s inherent value are, as usual, the one’s with a problem.

Enter Youtube

Youtube was recently the victim of vegan jihad. A PETA member shot them up because they demonetized her account. She retaliated violently against Youtube censorship. No one dare calls PETA a terror organization. Yet, how many conservatives are demonetized by Youtube?

PragerU gets censored by them, and many conservatives rely on creating their own subscription revenue because advertising revenue isn’t reliable. Gun videos are censored. Basically, anything that doesn’t promote what Youtube believes in is subject to censorship. Yet despite the greater severity in which conservative accounts are targeted by Youtube, it wasn’t a conservative who violently responded.

Conclusion

What appears to be the case is that there is consistently a higher regard for human life on the right as opposed to the left.

Consistently, mass murderers were registered Democrats and very few came from a “gun-clinger” environment. Yet “gun clingers” are the problem to the leftists?

But even with their gun free tech headquarters being shot up, they don’t consider that maybe the celebration of gun rights is completely unrelated to the problems with guns and homicides in our country. Or else an NRA member would have been a culprit at one point in time.

Could it be that the NRA promotes the value of human life? Absolutely. But I would also raise that many of those who cling to guns also cling to bibles. What better source material on the value of human life exists in the world?

    There are demands for increasing the age at which a firearm may be purchased. Consider this: How can someone who is defined as not mentally mature enough to own a firearm be considered mature enough to have a ballot? Voting for our representatives who will have control of the levers of power is one of the most responsible adult acts possible.
    We need to restore the voting age to 21 and then have a science based discussion of what is the appropriate age to consider a person mature enough to exercise full adult privileges and responsibilities.

Snopes downgrades truth about Beto’s arrests to ‘mostly true’ because a meme got his band’s name wrong

Snopes downgrades truth about Betos arrests to mostly true because a meme got his bands name wrong

Fact checkers are all the rage in the age of fake news. Unfortunately, all of the major fact checkers are left leaning at best, downright progressive at worst. That’s why I make it part of my daily routine to check the checkers to see what they spun today. This latest installment is minor in the whole scheme of things, but it highlights the intense need to protect Democrats whenever possible.

Snopes took on the task of fact checking the following statement:

Beto O’Rourke was in a band called the El Paso Pussycats and was arrested at least twice in the 1990s.

This is true. Beto was arrested twice, which makes him an ideal candidate for the party of lawlessness and disorder. But Snopes, in their certified fact checking wisdom, decided to pick the statement about the arrests that included the name of his band. The statement they chose had the wrong name for the band, using their album name instead. This was enough for them to downgrade the statement from “True” to “Mostly True.”

Not a big deal, right? Actually, it’s bigger than one might think. When people search for Beto and look only for things that are true about him, they will not be shown information about his arrests. The site could have picked literally any other claim about the arrests to fact-check, but had to dig deep to find an internet meme from his failed Senatorial bid last year in order to find one with a statement that included something incorrect in it.

Beto ORourke Arrest

You’ll notice they made sure to mention that both charges were dismissed. The circumstances behind the dismissals seemed to do nothing to negate the crimes he actually committed.

This is just another example of the “fact-checker” running cover for a Democrat they like. The meat of the fact, Beto’s arrests, won’t be found on this site as “True” because they were selective in how they wanted to frame this narrative.

Twice convicted, thrice deported Alberto Martinez Flores captured again by border patrol

Twice convicted thrice deported Alberto Martinez Flores captured again by border patrol

Deporting criminal illegal immigrants while maintaining such porous and indefensible borders often proves to be a fruitless expenditure. Many of them simply do their time in jail, get deported, then come back the way they came last time. Rinse. Repeat.

Such is the case for Alberto Martinez Flores, 42, who has multiple convictions, including assault, strangulation, vehicular assault, and unlawful imprisonment. This is not a very nice person. In fact, he’s dangerous, yet despite three deportations over the years, including last year, he always finds a way back in.

My Take

Why do people like Flores keep coming back? Because there are too many places without a wall. There aren’t enough border patrol agents. There aren’t enough beds for ICE to house the dramatic influx of humanity crossing our border illegally.

I’m not sure where I read it, but there’s a good case that can be made for increasing jail time on crimes when committed by illegal immigrants. This is something that should definitely be considered in light of our open borders.

Nevada to seek death penalty for illegal alien Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman

Nevada to seek death penalty for illegal alien Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman

Prosecutors in two counties where an illegal immigrant allegedly murdered four people are seeking the death penalty for his crimes. North Nevada was shaken by the string of murders until the alleged killer was apprehended by law enforcement in January.

Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, 20, was arrested January 19, 2019, by Washoe County Sheriff’s department and charged with multiple offenses while prosecutors and investigators worked on charging him for the four murders. They rarely invoke the death penalty but the severity and heinous nature of the crimes warrant capital punishment, according to prosecutors.

“We reserve the death penalty for the worst of the worst,” Washoe County District Attorney Chris Hicks said last Thursday. “We use it sparingly.”

The illegal immigrant from El Salvador is accused of shooting and killing Gerald David, 81, and his wife, Sharon, 80, in Reno and Connie Koontz, 56, and Sophia Renken, 74, in Gardnerville.

My Take

Just as traffic fines are doubled in construction zones, so too should penalties be increased when illegal immigrants commit crimes. His immigration status was not taken into account, but the crimes themselves were enough for prosecutors to seek the death penalty.
