What the media likely will not tell you about the murder of Dwayne Wade’s cousin

All I heard the past two days was how many have died in Chicago from “gun violence”. Oh but of course we must blame the guns. A better term would be “gang violence”. Bob Owens has some perspectiveBob Owens has some perspective

A cousin of NBA basketball star Dwyane Wade was shot and killed by a pair of serial offenders in Chicago on Friday because the two thugs didn’t like it when a taxi driver dared to make eye contact with them.

A pair of brothers released from jail on parole have been charged with fatally shooting Nykea Aldridge, cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade, in Chicago.

Darwin Sorells, 26, and 22-year-old brother Derren, who are both documented gang members, were charged with first-degree murder Sunday over the death of Aldridge, 32, a mother-of-four.

Both are repeat gun offenders, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson confirmed, and both were out on parole at the time of the killing.

Speaking about Darwin, Johnson said he is a six-time weapon offender who was jailed in 2013 for six years for another gun crime but released on parole in February.

Stop right there! Why was Darwin, why in the Blue Hell was this piece of trash out of prison, waking around? Sic weapons offenses, a gang member AND sentenced to six years less than three years ago? What is wrong with a justice system that releases a thug Like that early? His brother is also a repeat gun offender! Why the Hell was he out to predate on innocents? And why the Hell is no one talking about this? And why the Hell isn’t someone like Owens on CNN, or Fox talking about the reality of these predators?

The gang-banging Sorells brothers are part of a feral subculture within the larger American society that is predatory and nearly primal in how they view the world. In this instance, they decided to try to murder a man for being a stranger that made eye contact, which they took as a sign of challenging their dominance over what they viewed as their territory.

This is the sort of behavior we often associate with wild animals, but it is in fact the norm for much of human history, and is a current problem in many parts of the world even today.

The simple fact of the matter is that there are people who are predators by nature or nurture or a combination of the two, and they don’t think like you and I.

To them, violence is a tool, if not a form of currency.

They do not see other human beings as contributing members of society to be valued, but as either fellow predators to be either challenged or submitted to, or as prey to be exploited. Some of these people commit violent crime as a job. Others simply enjoy it.

This is a reality that your average citizen can’t or won’t admit exists, because it is terrifying. Admitting that this world exists is to admit that this is a serious problem. Even more worrying to a Disneyfied world is the realization that the only way to deal with this kind of threat is the sudden, precise, and overwhelming application of the tool of violence.

That my friends is the truth. There are bad people out there, people who will kill you, over nothing more than some perceived slight. As I have said numerous times to those fools who consider all violence to be somehow “equal”

Violence is neither good nor evil.

Violence is merely a tool.

Good people use the tool of violence all the time to save lives and prevent evil people from harming others. These practitioners of benevolent violence are members of our armed forces, law enforcement officers, and regular people just like you and I.

Concealed carry permit holders are the most law-abiding people in America

After you read this, ask yourself why the Left is so adamant about attacking gun rights. I think you know the answer already

Concealed-carry permit holders are nearly the most law-abiding demographic of Americans, a new report by the Crime Prevention Research Center says—comparing the permit holders foremost with police.

“Indeed, it is impossible to think of any other group in the U.S. that is anywhere near as law-abiding,” says the report, titled “Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the United States 2016.

“We find that permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a sixth the rate for police officers,” the report says. “Among police, firearms violations occur at a rate of 16.5 per 100,000 officers. Among permit holders in Florida and Texas, the rate is only 2.4 per 100,000.10. That is just one-seventh of the rate for police officers.”

Further damning is this stat, from states that do not require a permit to carry

“In 2014, the seven states that allowed concealed carry without a permit had much lower rates of murder and violent crime than did the seven jurisdictions with the lowest percentage of permit holders,” the Crime Prevention Research Center report reads. “Indeed, the murder rate was 31 percent lower in the states not requiring permits. The violent crime rate was 28 percent lower. Compared to the rest of the country, the 25 states with the highest rates of permit-holding experienced markedly lower rates of murder and violent crime.”

The Cult of Gun Control, of course, continues to lie. Consider Dan Gross of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence

“The fact is, despite the repugnant lies and wild west fantasies peddled by the corporate gun lobby, communities with a greater number of loaded, concealed guns are markedly more dangerous, and their citizens’ lives are at greater risk.

Well Dan, obviously you are ignorant or lying, and I would guess lying, deliberately, because the right of self-defense offends your collectivist mindset. The fact is as more and more guns are bought by law-abiding Americans violent crime rates, homicide rates, and accidental deaths by guns have all decreased, as has the rate of homicide by firearm. Numbers do not lie Dan, you do.

Unless Dan is talking about cities like Chicago, Baltimore, and DC, which have very strict gun laws, which disarm good people while doing nothing to stop gang bangers, and thugs from carrying concealed, loaded, and illegal guns, and committing crimes, then Dan is most definitely lying. Dan knows the truth, yet he lies anyway, again, ask yourself why.

Well, this makes me feel better about our national security

It would seem Team Obama loves releasing dangerous people to prey upon decent Americans

The Obama administration, forced to cut spending under the congressional sequester, ordered immigration officials to slash jailed illegals by over 5,000, including some accused of “terroristic threats,” drunk driving, drug and gun possession and sexual assault, according to newly revealed emails.

Ah, those mean Republicans “forced” the releases because “spending cuts”. So, Team Obama could not find anywhere else to cut? Where are their priorities? I think we know

Hundreds of emails obtained by the Immigration Reform Law Instituteunder a Freedom of Information Act demand showed urgent demands from Washington to Immigration and Customs Enforcement outposts around the country to release illegals after the 2013 sequester went into effect.

The administration tried to prioritize non-criminal illegals for release, but pressure to move fast prompted the release of criminals. Several illegal immigrants detained for terrorist activities were cited in release emails obtained by the Institute.

Again, there was no where else they could have cut? No, no, of course not because optics

“These emails make it crystal clear that the administration was more concerned with the political optics of its immigration enforcement efforts than with its duty to keep Americans safe from criminal and illegal aliens,” said FAIR spokesman Dave Ray. “Unfortunately, some American families paid the ultimate price – the loss of a loved one – for this political theater.”

President Obama’s immigration policies have been plagued with violence and even murder by illegal aliens released from jails instead of being deported.

And the best part? Hillary will be just as bad, if not worse

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Guns can serve as an equalizer for intended victims who are at sever disadvantages. Those who are handicapped, attacked by criminals who are stronger, or attacked by multiple attackers can turn the tables.

When will criminals learn? If you break into someone’s home, you shouldn’t expect to make it out alive.

Especially when your ‘victim’ is armed.

Police in Mobile, AL were called to an apartment complex on Texas Street shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday morning to investigate a shooting.

Mobile Police Department said three armed robbers, Deidra White, 24, Donald Denson, 19 and Eddie Hardy, 19, broke into an apartment in an apparent armed robbery attempt. The tenant heard the home intruders and grabbed his firearm for self defense. After a confrontation and a shootout in the apartment, the intruders fled on foot.

But not without a little parting gift for their efforts.

Hardy, who suffered a gunshot wound courtesy of the armed (and obviously better trained) tenant, was driven to a local hospital by his partners in crime where police say he died from his injuries.

Again, this story ends very differently if the Cult of Gun Control had their way

Perhaps our president should stop demanding new laws, and start enforcing our current ones

Jenn Jacques nails it!

Nothing illustrates America’s breakdown like the way the president’s hometown celebrates its holidays. Memorial Day: 12 dead, 56 wounded. The Fourth of July: 10 dead, 53 wounded. Labor Day: 9 dead, 46 wounded. This kind of third-world carnage has become absolutely … normal.

If the president held a press conference every time multiple people were murdered by criminal gangbangers with illegal guns in Chicago, we’d hear from him almost every day. Instead, he says nothing. And the untold secret in Washington is that he has all the laws he needs to stop the bloodshed now.

Under the existing federal gun laws, he could take every felon with a gun, drug dealer with a gun and criminal gangbanger with a gun off the streets tomorrow and lock them up for five years or more. But he won’t do it, his Justice Department won’t do it, and the media never asks why. So convicted gangbangers carry illegal guns because they fear rival gangs more than they fear being prosecuted for a gun charge.

Powerful truth there. And where is our media? Yes you too Fox, where are y’all? Why can no one in the mainstream media seem to report that laws, federal laws are simply not being enforced. How many lives might be saved by enforcing those laws? And why is it not one major news outlet can call out our president on his hypocrisy? He wags his finger at the NRA, at gun owners while at the same time he does not enforce existing laws. I suppose this shows what his priorities are. And the same is true for the grandstanding Democrats in Congress.

Bad day to rob a pharmacy! Via Bearing Arms

Last week an armed robber targeted a pharmacy in Pennsylvania. The pharmacy’s owner saw the robber approach via video camera and armed himself, and when the criminal didn’t listen to warning to leave and jumped the counter, the owner cut him down.

Now the District Attorney says that the pharmacy owner won’t face charges, and actually made the world a better place by killing the bad guy.

The pharmacy owner who shot and killed a robber on Friday morning in Levittown, Bucks County, will not face charges – and was even praised by the district attorney.

During a news conference on Friday afternoon, Falls Township Police Lt. Henry Ward said Pennsbury Pharmacy owner Kenneth Lee “had no choice to do what he did. He was protecting himself and his business.”

District Attorney David Heckler wholeheartedly agreed.

“There is no thought that we would prosecute the shooter in this case. He was entirely justified in his conduct, and frankly should be commended,” Heckler said.

“From what I can see, he performed a public service in taking out this fella,” Heckler continued. “The fella asked for what he got and he got it.”

Very sad someone lost his life, but, the criminal is completely to blame for that. SElf-Defense is, to me, the most basic natural right
