“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.

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.

Rewarding terrorism: Why are we encouraging mass murder with more liberty control?

Rewarding terrorism Why are we encouraging mass murder with more liberty control

Does it ever occur to the Left that depriving the people of the ability to defend themselves is exactly what the terrorists want?

Solving any type of problem begins with the proper determination of the cause of the problem. Mistakenly ascribing the wrong cause only serves to make the situation far worse because the wrong solutions are then applied.

The cause of the recent phenomena of mass murder attacks is a perverse desire for fame. This is why the miscreant in the recent tragedy in New Zealand posted a ‘manifesto’ and live streamed his horrific and cowardly actions. [Please note that we are not using his name or image]. This is also why he came out in favour of liberty [gun] control.

Rewarding behavior results in more of that behavior

Consider that the reprobates who perpetrate these attacks desperately want to make a name for themselves. Most people in this world want to do something positive to achieve fame. Some compete in athletic events, cure disease or work to solve societal problems. However, there are those who don’t have the ability or time to do this, so they decide to gain this by infamy instead. They choose to become infamous, shooting their way into the history books, with others helping them along the way by playing right into their hands with the notoriety by depriving others of their liberty.

They look at what mass murderers have done to achieve what they desperately crave. One way is to play into the hands of the Left looking to deprive the people of their right of self-defense. What better way to become infamous than to be the cause of a protracted battle over this fundamental human right?

Getting the reward of more media coverage by the cause of liberty [gun] control

The reprobate in the New Zealand attack made the entirely obvious point that many everyday items – including ordinary flour – can serve as explosives. As well as the fact that fuel mixtures can also be used for explosive or incendiary attacks, something the liberty grabber left doesn’t seem to understand is that these are also ‘weapons of war’. Alternatively there are other ordinary objects that can serve as weapons of mass murder ranging from blunt force, or edge weapons to vehicular attacks. He explicitly stated that he used firearms to attract more attention and have it be the cause of more leftist restrictions on freedom.

Even though they never discerned motive for the Las Vegas mass murder, court documents alluded to the idea that the reprobate in that crime had gun control as his cause celebre. Now in the case of the New Zealand attack, the miscreant was explicit about this in his rantings.

I chose firearms for the affect (sic) it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the affect it could have on the politics of United states (sic) and thereby the political situation of the world. The US is torn into many factions by its second amendment, along state, social, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.

[Our emphasis]
Note the words ‘the extra media coverage they would provide’ in reference to the use of firearms. It wasn’t just that he wanted the ‘media coverage’ from live streaming this horror with writing all over his weapons or posting a long screed where he claimed to be an ‘eco-fascist’ admiring Communist China. He wanted to have this abject horror show to be the cause of excessive media coverage resulting in the deprivation of everyone’s commonsense human and civil rights.

Most of these mass murderers don’t expect to survive these attacks, but they want to ‘live on’ in infamy by any means possible. Having the media cover their horrific crimes through their perennial hobbyhorse of gun confiscation means plenty of airtime trying to make the case for these freedom-ending measures.

Leftists don’t seem to understand that their much vaunted restrictions on liberty actually make it easier for these miscreants to carry out their horrific crimes. Most of these take place in ‘gun free’ zones because the victims cannot defend themselves, making everyone an easy target and upping the body count. Despite the denial of reality of the liberty grabbers, there have also been many cases of someone on the scene halting an attack, usually with a gun. Not to mention that these crimes are always stopped when armed authority arrives.

Should we encourage further attacks by giving the terrorists exactly what they want?

Studies have shown that the extensive coverage of these horrific crimes inspires further attacks. Thus, many have chosen to not publicize the crimes of these miscreants, granting them the infamy they crave. Shouldn’t we also apply the same rule to the policy agendas openly advocated by these reprobates?

Does it make any sense to punish the innocent for the horrific acts of a criminal? Punishments that encourage and even facilitate future attacks? Criminals and terrorists will always find ways to kill or get the weaponry to do so, as attacks in places of severe restrictions on Liberty prove this to be the case. In point of fact, these restrictions only serve to help these miscreants commit their crimes, does it make any sense to continue the practice?

The Takeaway

Mass murdering terrorists crave publicity for their horrific acts of cowardice. They also seek to change society by these acts. Knuckling under and playing along with what they want only serves to encourage further attacks. The innocent having the means to defend themselves is the practical and philosophical response to terror, no matter if it runs counter to the desires of the liberty grabber left.

Houston library had Alberto Garza, a registered child sex offender, read stories to children for Drag Queen Storytime

Houston library had Alberto Garza a registered child sex offender read stories to children for Drag

Conservatives know the LGBTQ community has their say in most aspects of life in America today. Their political and cultural influence is unquestionable and public organizations jump through hoops to appease the various groups. Many libraries have even embrace “Drag Queen Storytime” as a way to teach tolerance to children by allowing transvestites to read stories to children.

Houston Public Library is one such progressive public organization that has embraced the practice. Unfortunately, they didn’t do anything to protect the children that visit the library by allowing “Tatiana Mala Nina” to read for the children. The problem arose because”Tatiana” is actually Alberto Garza, a 32-year-old child sex offender.

My Take

Houston Public Library has apologized. Is that really enough? Mistakes happen, but there are certain situations and jobs in which extra special care must be taken. Our public libraries, which are often considered to be truly safe places and popular venues for children to learn, should be able to give a reasonable expectation to parents that registered child sex offenders are not given explicit access to children.

This is gross negligence. I may be in the minority on this one, but this is a terminable offense in my books. Someone’s head should roll.

Keep in mind I rarely call for anyone to be fired for a single offense, but this is literally the worst case scenario for a library administrator. When you give someone access to the children that come to the library, they cannot be convicted child sex offenders. That’s sort of a no-brainer.

Nothing will likely happen beyond the apology, but here’s hoping.

So many exceptions are made for “alternative lifestyles” for the sake of tolerance. But when this tolerance allows a convicted child sex offender to have access to small children, the exceptions have gone way to far. This is absolutely unacceptable.
