Chicago and the perverse morality of gun control

When you want to see the moral retardation of the gun control cult in all its depravity, look at Chicago. Right now, the city council and mayor are doing their level best to make sure no one can run a legitimate gun store in the city. All the while the body count from armed gangs and thugs keeps mounting, Bob Owens takes a look at this farce

Thanks to absurdly restrictive gun control laws that ensured that only criminals and cops had handguns, Chicago has long been little more than “Mogadishu on Lake Michigan.” It is a bloody nightmare of a city when gunfire crackles through the air, day and night.  Is not at all uncommon for 50 or more people to be shot in the course of a weekend. Indeed, this past weekend, more than 60 people were shot, 9 of them fatally .

But Illinois Democrats have been forced by the courts to finally begin issuing concealed carry permits so that citizens can defend themselves, and the first permits were issued earlier this year.

An unnamed serviceman put his legally concealed handgun to good use Friday night after a thug opened fire on a group of people because they dared move his drink off of their car when they wanted to leave.

No… I’m not kidding .

The military member and three others were leaving a party Friday night in the 11700 block of South Union Avenue in West Pullman, Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Hain said in Cook County Bond Court.

One of the victims noticed a cup of liquor on top of her vehicle and asked attendees of a party next door who it belonged to, Hain said.

When she removed it, Denzel A. Mickiel approached her, shouting obscenities and threatening her and her friends, according to Hain and court records.

Mickiel, 22, went into the residence, returned with a gun and began firing at the group, she said.

As Mickiel fired shots at the victims’ vehicle, the military member retrieved his gun and took cover near the vehicle’s front fender, according to Hain. Two unidentified males also shot at the group, she said.

The service member fired two shots and struck Mickiel twice, she said.

Mickiel is in critical condition, and the group that merely asked a drink be moved from their car are all going to be OK.  That would not have been the case had the good guy not been armed. In fact, those people would likely be dead, and certainly the gun control cult would have  used their deaths as reason to further disarm the law abiding. Will Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the City Council learn from this? Will they grasp that what they are doing in trying to make it impossible for people to legally attain firearms for self-defense is morally deficient? Likely not, after all it is not safety they are after, it is control, of people they are after. To them gun ownership is part of Individualism, which is a sin against their Collectivist ideology. Again, a good guy stops a violent attack with a legally carried firearm, and again, the morally retarded gun control cult will ignore it and continue to push for more gun people control.

Hillary, Hillary, you shameless liar you

I am, it would seem, a terrorist in the eyes of she who would be queen. I am not alone though, Bob Owens, he must be a terrorist too!

It appears that the woman who was so corrupt that she was thrown out of the Watergate trial isn’t a fan of guns in the hands of anyone except Vince Foster.

During a town hall meeting today, Clinton said that American gun owners opposed to universal background checks—an prerequisite for registration and confiscation— are terrorizing the rest of the nation.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke about her views on gun control Tuesday, saying she was “disappointed” Congress did not pass a universal background checks bill after “the horrors” of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

In fact, we have, and have had background checks for buying a gun since the early 90’s. This is the truth no matter Statists like Clinton knowingly LIE and say there are no background checks

“I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation, we cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” Clinton said during a CNN town hall.

Did you catch that folks. We, the Collective, the Community, simply cannot allow certain viewpoints because that might “terrorize” the majority. apparently Ms. Clinton wants to control your speech too

Clinton said she feels for parents sending their kids to school, noting that there have been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook.

No, there have NOT BEEN 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook. That claim was patently false, and was absolutely debunked by Politifact AND CNN Ms. Clinton.

“I don’t think any parent, any person, should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reasons — psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever it means — could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers,” Clinton said.

Here we go again, a Statist talking of eliminating fear as if they can control that. Not to mention that nothing that Ms. Clinton supports would have stopped any of the recent mass shootings.  Even a spokestool of Bloomberg admits that

At our companion site Townhall.com Katie Pavlich notes that the man who was Michael Bloomberg’s top paid gun grabber has admitted that the various citizen control schemes proposed by gun control groups would have had no impact on mass shootings:

Meet Mark Glaze, the former executive director and face of Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety,a group that used to be called Mayors Against Illegal Guns [MAIG]. Whenever a mass shooting occurs (which despite popular belief and hysteria from the media, isn’t happening more frequently than it used to), Glaze takes to the airwaves to demand new gun control legislation, specifically expanded background checks.

As of Friday, Glaze left his post with MAIG Everytown and is admitting in an exit interview with the Wall Street Journal that the proposals outlined by the gun control group and sent to Congress, would not have prevented mass shootings in the past and won’t stop them in the future.

Make sure that you read Glaze’s exact words, which are an admission that the gun control policies pushed by Moms Demand Action From Illegal Mayors In Everytown (MDAIMIE) will in no way slow or stop mass killings.

So, if you are a supporter of “#gunsense” ask yourself why these laws are being pushed if the people pushing them ADMIT they will never prevent a shooting at a school or other public place? Then ask yourself why you would ever support a candidate that supported such laws.

And the award for most effective gun control group in America goes to………..

These idiots!

The most effective gun control group in the United States has struck twice again in recent weeks, and they have convinced two more restaurant chains to ban the carry of firearms:

Two more restaurant chains are adding their names to the list of eateries that have adopted a no-guns policy.

Sonic Drive-In and Chili’s Grill & Bar issued statements Friday asking patrons to leave their guns at home.

USA Today reported Saturday that the announcements were prompted by recent demonstrations by open-carry activists who brought rifles and shotguns into Sonic, Chili’s and Chipotle Mexican Grill outlets in Texas.

“We recognize that the open carry of firearms in restaurants creates an uncomfortable atmosphere and is not permitted under many local liquor laws,” Chili’s Dallas-based parent said in statement. “So, we kindly ask that guests refrain from openly carrying firearms into our restaurants and we will continue to follow state and local laws on this issue.”

The Oklahoma-based Sonic said: “We’ve considered the views and desires of our customers and employees that staff the drive-ins across the country. Accordingly, we’re asking that customers refrain from bringing guns onto our patios or into our indoor dining areas. With respect to the storage of guns in vehicles, we ask that our customers continue to honor local laws.”

The “look at me” gang strikes again, and again! I am convinced they are not even about open carry of sidearms anymore. They are all about them, them, and oh yeah, everybody look at me! Bob Owens sums up their selfishness

I’ve lost count of the number of restaurant chains that we we’ve lost the option to carry firearms in nationally because of the actions of self-absorbed long-gun open carriers in Texas taking firearms into business establishments. Their stated goal is either to “normalize” long gun open carry, or to make the open carry of handguns possible.

The reality is that long gun open carry of loaded weapons into business establishments has never been normal in any relatively settled area of the United States in the United States. Even in colonial times you were required discharge your loaded weapon before entering meeting halls and taverns. Such a volley discharge by the Lexington militia at a fortuitous moment caused the British to release Paul Revere after he’d been captured during his night ride to call out the militia on April 19, 1775, prior to the arrival of the column of Regulars.

These open carry groups are also souring the possibility of Texas legalizing handgun open carry. Both the Democrat and Republican candidates for the governorship of Texas have come out in favor of legalizing handgun open carry. The legislature was leaning that direction. So what do these groups do? They parade around in public with long-guns at the low-ready or slung across their backs at a diagonal so that they are constantly muzzle sweeping one another, or are pointing their muzzles at concrete… a decidedly non-safe direction. Their actions are making it less likely that such a law will pass.

Shannon Watts and Moms Demand Action from Mayors in Everytown have not accomplished anything as a group. Every citizen control “victory” they can claim comes as the result of these open carry groups carrying firearms in an unsafe manner into business establishments that simply want to sell their products, and who don’t want to be part of a poorly executed Quixotic campaign.

The results don’t lie.

Business establishment long-gun open carriers are the most effective gun control groups in the United States at this moment.

If these groups really want to help, they need to stop their grandstanding. Frankly, the idea of a group of 8 or 10 people ALL carrying rifles sitting down in a restaurant to eat is idiotic and impractical. And, as Owens notes, they are not safe with those guns in too many instances. Here is your reality check. If you walked into my business, I, as a passionate advocate of gun rights would boot your asses out. So, stop the damned grandstanding, get your heads out of your asses, stop acting out every negative stereotype Moms Demand Action put out there, and if you care one damn bit about gun rights STOP HELPING! Unless of course Bloomberg is paying y’all to make gun owners look like ass hats. Frankly I am starting to wonder.

Indiana School Board uses common sense on defending students

Hat Tip to Bearing Arms for this story that is sure to drive gun control activists nuts

WHITE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – Administrators and school board members with the North White School Corporation can carry guns inside campus buildings beginning in July.

The North White Board of Trustees voted unanimously, 7-0, to approve the new policy on Monday. According to North White School Board President Shannon Mattix, the policy states guns may be carried inside campus buildings while school is in session and at school events.

Participants must pass two annual training sessions, one six-hour basic firearm training session, and up to 40 hours of crisis management and defensive tactics training. Those carrying guns are required to go through a psychological evaluation at least once a year.

Other policy requirements include the firearm must be concealed, semi-automatic, held in a Level Two or Three holster, and carried not stored in the building.

Mattix explained that in developing this policy, they wanted to rely on factual information and data and to eliminate emotions.

I like the stipulations, contrary to what gun grabbers say those in favor of arming teachers, concealed carry, etc believe in responsibility and safety, and I have always wanted armed teachers to receive extra training.

When will Liberals retire their stale talking points about guns?

I fully expect the Left to continue their war on guns and on self-defense as well. They are never sated in their quest to control people. And, I fully expect them to continue to make up stats and tell bad-faced lies about guns and gun owners, I mean it is not like they can rely on facts is it? But for God’s sake can they at least make up some new lies rather than beating the same tired, worn out talking points?

Hillary “What difference at this point does it make” Clinton, has spoken on guns.

Hillary Clinton told an audience of mental health professionals on Tuesday that the United States needs to rein in its gun culture or risk a world where insignificant disagreements could lead to shootings.

Asked about the mental health aspects of guns, Clinton said “I think we’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article faith that anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime. I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”

“We really have got to get our arms around it because at the rate we are going, we are going to have so many people with guns everywhere fully licensed, fully validated,” Clinton said, painting a picture of a country where small annoyances could lead to shootings.

Clinton, whose comments came during the question and answer portion at the end of her appearance, said because “we are living at a time when there is so much external stimulation and some much internal confusion in certain people,” it would be a bad idea to let people “go to bars with guns, let them go to schools with guns, let them go to church with guns.”

But Clinton also gave an olive branch to gun owners, adding “I think you can say that and still support the right of people to own guns.”

Sorry, I almost fell asleep reading that. Good grief, is the Left STILL trying to sell the “Wild West shootouts” and “blood in the streets” lies? There is simply NO, I mean NO statistical data that supports Hillary’s specious claims. Everything, not counting the “facts” the gun grabbers make up of course proves that violent crime goes DOWN when concealed carry laws, or stand your ground laws are passed. Yes, I know, the Left tries to say that homicide rates increase after stand your ground laws are passed. However, they leave out that it is justifiable homicides A.K.A. self-defense cases that go up. There are no Wild West scenarios, and the number of defensive gun uses outnumber the number of criminal uses of guns. Sorry, Hillary, but the “science” here? It really is settled. Now, for goodness sake, stop telling your irresponsible lies, or at the very least be more original and make up new, fresh lies. Yes, we will still blow holes in these new lies, but at least we will have some variety for a change.
