Noted Gun Control Cultist sets new record for number of lies in one paragraph

The Left does not hold the truth as a value, Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action gord one step farther. She worships at the Altar of Falsehoods In her op-ed for Teen Vogue for example

In her op-ed, Watts advises young women to hate the NRA for keeping American lawmakers ever-reminded of their oath to uphold and defend the United States Constitution which includes the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

In part because America has something else no other developed nation has: a gun lobby that pushes for extreme “guns everywhere” policies while lobbying against common-sense gun laws. The National Rifle Association — which used to be an organization of sportsmen and hunters — boasts some of the most powerful lobbyists in America, working to pad the pockets of gun manufacturers by fighting even modest efforts to close loopholes in our gun laws. As a result, dangerous people are able to get their hands on guns — no questions asked.

Hmmm, guns everywhere? If Watts means the NRA supports the Constitutionally protected natural right to carry arms for self-defense she is right. She hates that right and she hates to talk about the number of times guns are used by law-abiding Americans to defend themselves annually. The lies keep coming and Bob owens does a good job at setting the record straight go read it all

Will California Democrats try to ban all semi-auto rifles?

It would not surprise me in the least. It is a given that the Marxifornia Democrats are all member of the Cult of Gun Control, so this comes as no surprise

Recently, Gun Owners of California’s (GOC) Executive Director Sam Paredes had a frank conversation with Breitbart’s AWR Hawkins, and told him to buckle up for an all-out ban on semi-automatic long guns in the coming legislative session.

According to Paredes, the “assault weapons” and bullet button bans passed in 2016 were only a stepping stone toward California lawmakers’ real goal of banning all semi-automatic rifles.

“These laws are the tip of the iceberg here in California. We expect they are going to introduce legislation to totally ban semi-automatic long guns in California. They will do this because they know we will come up with a new way to beat their latest ban–the ‘bullet button’ ban–if given time.”

“They had a bill for this last year that we were able to kill. We think they will bring it up again and they will also introduce legislation to put in place a one-gun-per-month of any kind purchase limit. This limit will apply whether it’s a handgun or a long gun, in order to try to slow down the sales of guns in California.”

This is a wet dream for the Left of course, and other “Progressive” states will follow suit. I think the best hope is that the voters  in California will start throwing out any bums that support these draconian measures

Why yes, the Clinton campaign is sleazy

Leaked emails released by WikiLeaks show how depraved Team Clinton is

Via Fox News

The Hillary Clinton campaign came under fire from Erica Garner on Thursday, the daughter of Eric Garner who was killed by a police officer in New York City, after the latest batch of emails released by WikiLeaks revealed how the Democratic presidential nominee talked about her father’s death.

In a series of tweets, Garner expressed anger at the information that poured out from the email release.

“I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner … Why would you want to ‘use my dad?” she said. “These people will co opt anything to push their agenda. Police violence is not the same as gun violence.

Garner also tweeted out links to hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that show staffers trying to figure out how to word an editorial on gun violence that would later run in the New York Daily News.

The emails reveal how Team Corruption was trying to use Eric Garner’s death to push for gun control. They prove how little his actual death means to hacks like Podesta and the rest of Hillary’s cabal. The only thing that matters is whether or not these deplorables can use his death to push their agenda

Guns are to blame? No Thug Culture is

Two stories from Bearing Arms sum up what happens when a culture becomes rotten to the core.

First

Chicago boasts some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. It is also known as one of the most violent cities in America.

Instead of admitting the failure of Chicago’s gun control laws and admitting that there is a major violent subculture problem in the Windy City, however, Democrats are attempting to claim that their gun control laws are failing because gun controls in surrounding states are less strict.

Odd, isn’t it, that those guns do not cause problems in those neighboring states. That is, of course, because it is not the guns, it is the people thugs.

Video has surfaced on YouTube that shows a man in the Pilsen neighborhood opening fire on a passing car. The shooter then realizes that the people in the passing car are his friends.

The gunman yells out, “Aw man, my bad dawg!”

So, again, let it be stressed that shooting at passing cars is normal to this thug and his “friends”. Life is of so little value that random rounds can be fired into a vehicle on a whim? If Democrats want to stop “gun violence” then they have to address the culture behind it. And here is a hint, that culture will not be found at an NRA convention. Bob Owens has more

We’re looking at an example of a culture so casually violent that they feel justified in using deadly force not just to settle disputes, but because they didn’t recognize a vehicle driving down their streets, or because of a Facebook argument over a boy.

No gun law is capable of solving the problem of a hyper-violent, predatory subculture so slavishly devoted to carnage.

The second story Owens references above is detailed here

The trial of Vandetta Redwood begins in Chicago (IL) for allegedly giving her 14-year-old niece a .38 caliber revolver as a means of physically ending a Facebook dispute over a boy.

When the argument took place, around 20 people were around.

Redwood’s cousin, Donnell Flora initially provided the teen with the gun. She handed the gun back to Flora. That’s when Redwood took the gun and gave it back to the teen.

“Shoot that b***h,” Redwood told her niece as she handed over the revolver. Redwood’s own 12-year-old daughter stood nearby and watched the attack take place.

Redwood’s niece used the revolver to shoot to 14-year-old Endia Martin and Martin’s 16-year-old best friend. Martin was killed as a result of the shooting. Her friend, however, survived.

Again, a 14-year-old child is dead, another teens life is ruined, and why? The NRA? Lawful gun owners? Gun shows? No, this tragedy happened because of a culture that is rotten to its core. A culture so evil and destitute of any sense of values that an argument over a boy should cost a child her life. When life has no value, and thuggish deeds are not only excused, but encouraged, we must look at the culture behind that moral depravity. And we must take steps to address that moral depravity, its causes, and we must find its solutions. Those who look only to gain political points by using these events are no better in my view than those pulling the triggers. They are political vultures who want not solutions, but some gain for themselves.

Again, no sane person can blame the NRA, or the tens and tens of millions of gun owners who harm no one. No rational person can blame the millions of Americans who carry firearms legally for protection. The blame lies squarely at the feet of this inhuman culture of violence, and predation. The blame lies at the feet of those who excuse it, and at the feet of those who look only to blame gun owners to advance their obscene fascination with banning guns

Lady Gaga, another Liberal addicted to false narratives

Liberalism is an ideology of feelings, and of self-importance. If a Liberal “feels” something, it really does not matter if that Liberal is well-informed or has the facts on their side. It matters only that they can proclaim that they care, this showing how good a person they are. Take Lady Gaga, who apparently still thinks Trayvon Martin was cut down in cold blood

Singer Lady Gaga revealed in a recent interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe that the song “Angel Down,” which appears on her new album, Joanne, is about the highly publicized 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

“There an epidemic of young African Americans being murdered in this country. I was overwhelmed by the fact that people just stood around and didn’t do anything about it, and that the justice system continues to, over and over again, not seek justice for these families,” the six-time Grammy Award winning singer said.

“I have my ear to the ground of my fans, young African American women and boys who are terrified. … They tell me they drive in their cars, and when they hear a siren there’s a paranoia that runs through their body, that they freeze up that they can’t think.”

Well isn’t she just special? Martin was hardly an angel. He attacked George Zimmerman, and was in the process of pounding Zimmerman’s head off the sidewalk  when Zimmerman shot him in self-defense. The trial proved that convincingly. I remember watching the trial and thinking why was Zimmerman charged? The prosecutions own witnesses damaged the case against Zimmerman, and the evidence was all in Zimmerman’s favor.But, all of that matters not to Lady Gaga. Let us look again at her words

“There an epidemic of young African Americans being murdered in this country. I was overwhelmed by the fact that people just stood around and didn’t do anything about it, and that the justice system continues to, over and over again, not seek justice for these families,” the six-time Grammy Award winning singer said.

Well, yes there is indeed such an epidemic. But it is not armed citizens or police that are summarily executing Black people without any consequences. It is, in fact gang members, and wannabe thugs who are doing the overwhelming majority of the killings. Perhaps the singer might try speaking out on that fact, rather than painting police and armed citizens as guilty somehow?

“I have my ear to the ground of my fans, young African American women and boys who are terrified. … They tell me they drive in their cars, and when they hear a siren there’s a paranoia that runs through their body, that they freeze up that they can’t think.”

Again, most of the cases involve a gang member, or a person with a long record of violence, a person who has prior convictions, and who really ought to be in prison draws a weapon on police, and not just Black youth either. Many White youths are shot because they did not comply and show their hands, continually reaching where they might have a weapon, refusing to drop a weapon or actually pointing a weapon at police. What would famed self-defense and use of force expert Lady Gaga have police do? Come on Lady gaga, please share your infinite wisdom.

And please Lady Gaga, tell us at what point someone is allowed to defend themselves. And tell us at what point the responsibility for the vast majority of these shooting is given to the aggressors and not the person defending themselves and family or to police doing their jobs. I eagerly await your wisdom Lady Gaga. Or do you just prefer to to spout emotionally based narratives that are short on facts?

Yep, that is what I thought

The Cult of Gun Control, Addicted to lying

If you were to venture to the very bottom of the Pit of Leftist Lies, these miscreants would be there, digging

The Brady Campaign, one of the leading gun control groups in the nation, launched their “Toddlers Kill” campaign earlier this week, citing statistics involving kids.

Here is there fallacious stat, presented in the despicably dishonest fashion

14716240_10153937896619212_2658025637981328586_n

Really plays on your emotions doesn’t it? It is designed to. Only one problem, as Bob Owens explains

The problem with their stats? They’re skewed to the point of irrelevance.

the vast majority of those victims are in fact teenagers. Many, if not most of them involved in urban gang warfare.

Let’s look at these deceptive numbers, shall we?

The “Toddlers Kill” campaign refers to the Brady Campaign’s gun death fact sheet, which is based off of the Center for Disease Control’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control’s statistics.

brady-gun-fact-sheet

The anti-gunners claim “2,624 kids and teens die from gun violence,” but number doesn’t just include toddlers, like the “Toddler Kill” campaign misleadingly suggests. Instead it includes gun-related incidents from everyone 19 and younger.

Here’s the actual numbers of accidental firearm deaths by age group:

  • Under the age of 14: 50 deaths
  • 15-24 years old: 148 deaths

Here are the real numbers for homicides involving firearms:

  • Under one year old: 5 deaths
  • Between 1 and 4 years old: 47 deaths
  • Between 5 and 14 years old: 173 deaths
  • Between 15 and 24 years old: 3,587

The real numbers for firearms suicides:

Under age 4: 0 deaths

Between 5 and 14 years old: 173 deaths

Between 15 and 24 years old: 2,270 deaths

In short, they lie, because they have to. There is no way they can push their gun control propaganda without lying. The most damning aspect is this; They KNOW they are lying. They revel in their dishonesty. And, the biggest issue for all Americans to consider is this. If they know they are lying, then they are lying about their end goals as well aren’t they? What then is that end goal?

 

John Legend speaks out on guns, foolishness ensues

Celebrities of all stripes feel compelled, I suppose, to speak out on social issues. I am fine with that, I just wish they would take being well-informed as seriously as they take speaking out.

The Breakfast Club host DJ Envy said, “You travel a lot. You’ve been to Toronto, you’ve been to Japan, and you notice when you go to a lot of these countries, people are not allowed to have guns.” Legend interjected, “Yes, and their murder rates are way lower. Their suicide rates are lower, too, because when people have guns, they end up using them.”

Odd that he mentions that. Canada’s suicide rate did not fall after Canada went with stricter gun laws. And to the comment that people end up using guns if they have them. Hmmm, if that were true, then why are the 300,000,000 guns in America not being used constantly? Legend might also look at the homicide and violent crime rates in America. They are far, far lower than many nations with highly restrictive gun laws.

Envy asked, “So banning guns in full, you’re saying?”

Legend responded:

I’m not saying that necessarily would work. But if we look at Australia, they did something over there. They had a few mass shootings, and they said, “You know what? We’re going to take a pretty significant approach to reducing the amount of guns on the streets.” And it worked. They didn’t have another mass shooting, their murder rate went down, and we won’t do it here because we got the Second Amendment. We got the NRA that’s going to lobby against it. And maybe it won’t be constitutional to do that, but at the end of the day, it actually worked. And if we want to talk about what makes us safer, that would make us safer.

Ah yes, Australia, a popular nation for gun control advocates, including Hillary Clinton, to throw around as an example how gun control works. Not so fast Mr. Legend, Australia is struggling with rising gun crime. To be fair, I doubt Mr. legend knows about that story, but really, facts should not matter right? Legend is a celebrity, so we should all crave and value his wisdom.

Legend also blamed Chicago’s gun crime on Indiana, claiming that criminals in Chicago go to Indiana to buy their guns.

But of course he did. This is another popular tactic with the Cult of Gun Control. Rather than looking honestly at cities with high crime rates and strict gun control, like Baltimore, Chicago, Oakland, Newark, DC, etc The Left blames surrounding states with less restrictive gun laws.. Here is the one question I would pose to Mr. Legend. If it is guns from Indiana causing the violence in Chicago, then why don’t those guns cause similar problems in Indiana? Why do the guns in Virginia, which are blamed for high rates of violence in DC and Baltimore, not cause the same rates in Virginia?

I might also ask Mr. legend why people like himself never blame early release of violent criminals? Like the two thugs who murdered Dwayne Wade’s cousin? Why do people like himself never talk about gangs, which are a massive problem, or absent fathers in the black community? Why do they never point their fingers at the political party (Democrats) that is, and has been in charge of the vast majority of the most violent cities? Finally, I would ask Mr. Legend if he has ever looked up the number of times firearms are used in self-defense in America? Why would he seek to disarm so many, including myself, that have defended themselves with a firearm? Finally, I would ask Mr. legend why America which is #1 in firearm ownership, with gun sales setting new records nearly every month, and with well over 13,000,000 Americans carrying firearms, not the highest in violent crime and homicides? Why are we not in the top 10? Or top 25? Or the top 50? Or even the top 100? 

But, what do I know, right? I am not a celebrity who thinks he has to say certain things, regardless of their veracity. I am just a guy who pours through stats to educate myself before I opine.
