Yes, Ben Carson is right about charging mass shooters

Via Bearing Arms

In the wake of the Umpqua Community College attack that left nine Christians dead at the hands of a pathetic loser*, retired pediatric neurosurgeon and GOP Presidential candidate Ben Carson made the comment that he would lead a charge against the shooter in such a situation, on the theory that a number of people swarming the shooter could overwhelm and disarm him.

Carson’s logical response has been attacked by spineless cowards in the media ever since, with the prissy Andrew Rosenthal of the New York Times offering up a representative establishment media response:

In the days since the college shooting, which left nine dead, the worst, most damaging comments came from two Republican candidates, Jeb Bush and Ben Carson.

In a Facebook chat on Monday, Mr. Carson, who loves to invoke his long and distinguished career as a surgeon, talked about how many bullets he had extracted from people’s bodies. “I never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away,” Mr. Carson wrote on Facebook.

His comment displayed a shocking lack of empathy, and left him open to criticism that he thought the Second Amendment was more important than the spilling of innocent blood. A surgeon has to achieve some kind of detachment to do the job, but Mr. Carson is not running for chief of surgery. He’s running for president.

Actually, natural rights ARE more important Mr. Rosenthal, Without such rights we would all be wards of the state, with no ability to cart our own lives, speak or minds, worship as we choose, or defend ourselves

On Fox News, Mr. Carson said that if faced with the kind of threat those people in Oregon faced, “I would not just stand there and let him shoot me.” He added: “I would say: ‘Hey, guys, everybody attack him! He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all.’ ”

He went on to offer the tired, empty talking point from the National Rifle Association that the solution to the threat of deranged people with unfettered access to firearms, including ones designed solely to kill human beings, is to arm everyone.

Mr. Rosenthal, you seem to be suffering from Truth Deficit Disorder. NO ONE, I repeat NO ONE at the NRA, or Ben Carson, or any other gun rights supporter has EVER advocated “arming everyone”. You know this too, yet you lie about it anyway. You do so, Mr. Rosenthal, because as a Leftist you place zero value on honesty or truth.

Mr. Carson seems to have a shocking lack of understanding of what happened in Oregon. There is no evidence that a single victim behaved badly in those terrible moments. And one of them, Chris Mintz, an Army veteran, did try to stop the carnage. He was shot seven times and both legs were broken. It was his son’s sixth birthday. Mr. Mintz, thankfully, survived, but I guess Mr. Carson considers his wounds a trivial matter compared to blocking gun laws.

Mr. Rosenthal, Chris Minz DID act heroically, now imagine if he had been joined by others, all charging the gunman at once. A gunman can only shoot so much at one time. Other mass shootings HAVE been stopped by charging and tackling the shooter. Examples include the recent case in Europe, and the Gabby Giffords shootings. Other mass shootings have been stopped by armed citizens, and in truth all of the mass shootings, which yes are very rare, end when armed resistance meets the shooter, who often offs himself, as happened in Oregon. Really Mr. Rosenthal, your attempt at belittling Carson, and Jeb Bush  as well, is pathetic and devoid of any grasp of facts. 

OK kids, time to laugh at the stupid Feminists

You just cannot lampoon the Left better than they do it themselves!

Feminists have fallen for a hoax campaign that encourages them to pee on themselves in the name of equality. They are using the hashtag #PissForEquality.

It wasn’t long before the feminists fell for it. Here are just a few of the many hilarious Tweets using the hashtag

You know, if you really do not like being American, or America, or are offended by American patriotism, maybe you should haul your ass to another country!

So, school administrators were worried that some little moonbat starter kits might get their precious egos bruised over “America Day”?

The moonbats really have our backs to the wall. We aren’t allowed to show pride in our country even in Wyoming:

Patriotic teenagers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming showed up to class [last] Wednesday waving American flags in defiance of educators who canceled “America Day” over fears it might upset students who don’t consider themselves to be American.

Don’t ask what the hell they are doing attending school in Wyoming if they don’t consider themselves American. That would be racist, jingoistic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, et cetera, ad nauseam.

Administrators at Jackson Hole High School pulled the plug on “America Day” – citing concerns that celebrating the USA would alienate some of their young people, the Jackson Hole Daily reported.

Better to alienate the normal 99.9% than some “refugee” or undocumented Democrat who regards America as an insult to Allah and Aztlan.

Activities Director Mike Hansen said that a number of students did not feel American and felt “targeted and singled out by this day.”

Obviously it is those of us who do feel American and aren’t ashamed of it yet who are targeted under liberal rule.

“America Day” was part of a homecoming tradition at the high school. Students would show up to class either waving American flags or wearing red, white and blue clothing.

“Many different students could have felt singled out,” Hansen told the newspaper. “We’re trying to be inclusive and safe, make everyone feel welcome.”

Oh, they are trying to be “safe” WTF is unsafe about students celebrating their American culture exactly? And how in the world can you claim to be inclusive by EXCLUDING students? And one more thing Mr. Hansen, did you say you say you were trying to be welcoming? WELCOMING? America is the most welcoming nation on earth, yet you spit on that in order to appease a few whiners and malcontents? YOU sir are what is very wrong with our education system

On no! How your microwave meal might cause Offendeditis!

Good Freaking Grief!

It may seem an innocent enough act to warm up your sausage roll in the microwave during lunch hour.

But think again, because doing so could seriously upset colleagues of certain faiths, new guidelines on the etiquette of using communal kitchens at work suggest.

Similarly, it would also be advisable to avoid keeping bacon rolls in a fridge shared with people whose religious beliefs prohibit them from eating pork.

Professor Dinham warned that employers should consider new religions and cults, including Scientology, and beliefs such as environmentalism and vegetarianism, as well as the established faiths of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism and Sikhism.

The programme, commissioned by CoExist House, an interfaith group, will also deal with other matters including clothing, the right to wear religious symbols such as crucifixes and hijabs, and whether to allow time off on religious holidays.

How about this, if you do not like what someone else is eating, too fucking bad! You want tolerance, start with being tolerant yourself! In short mind your own damn business!

Hillary Clinton does not know shit about federal gun laws

Or maybe she just figures the people she is trying to sell her gun control plans to are too stupid to do any research. That is OK Bob Owens has done it for them

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has released a “factsheet” entitled Hillary Clinton Believes It’s Time to Act on Gun Violence. The position paper establishes a radically left-wing, gun control agenda, while also establishing that the candidate and her staff don’t know or understand existing federal gun laws.

The most glaring example of the Clinton campaigns ignorance is it’s position on “straw purchasing.”

The Clinton campaign incredibly claims that straw purchasing is merely a “paperwork violation.”

Straw purchasing—defined as someone with a “clean” criminal record buying a firearm for a prohibited person—has been a federal felony for decades, with violators facing a sentence of up to ten years in a federal prison and a $250,000 fine for each violation.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) have long maintained a web site decrying this federal crime, Don’t Lie For the Other Guy.

Go read the rest, it gets worse. Take this gem

It is estimated that 20 to 40 percent of all gun purchases in America are conducted with no background check because federal law fails to cover unlicensed transfers online, at gun shows, and between anonymous strangers.

There really is no research to verify this “stat” But the Cult of Gun Control has a nasty habit of making “facts” up, so that is nothing new. To me, I always wonder how anyone can give a number of “unreported” incidents of any sort.

Your Marxist Moron of the Day- David Brooks

Yes, yes, I know, Brooks is a “Conservative”, excuse me while I laugh for  a moment, OK, that is better. Brooks is no more a Conservative than the buffoonish David Frum, but let me get to the reason I am giving Brooks this award

During appearances on NPR’s All Things Considered and PBS NewsHour on Friday, the Washington Post’s E.J. Dionne and the New York Times’ David Brooks eagerly touted President Obama’s blatant decision to “politicize” the Oregon school shooting to push gun control.  Brooks and Dionne, who both openly endorse federal gun control legislation, eagerly cheered President Obama’s response to the Oregon shooting with Brooks, who self-identifies as a conservative telling NPR’s Robert Siegel that he “support[s] every gun control legislation you can imagine” even though he conceded that it won’t be “particularly effective.”   

Well, did you catch that? Brooks supports all the federal gun control, even though he admits it will not do a damned thing to make anyone safer! How foolish can he be? But Brooks cares nothing about reducing crime, or the natural right of bearing arms. He does not give the first damn about those things. He cares not that as gun ownership has risen, and more and more American carry firearms, violent crime has fallen, and fallen a lot. Brooks could point that out, but he prefers to say stupid things to get praise from Leftists tools like E.J. Dionne

I’m very glad to hear what David said, and I think that there is something terribly wrong when the Republican Party and the conservative movement are so closely aligned institutionally with the gun lobby and those who say we cannot have any laws in our country. And I think the president’s statement calls that out.  

See, Dionne, who spews the same lies as all lies about the “gun lobby” and the Republicans opposition to “any laws” as all the other Leftists spew, pats Brooks on the head and that is what really matters to Brooks.

College courses that teach hatred and bigotry

Via Campus Reform 

According to Portland State University Professor’s Rachel Sanders’ “White Privilege” course, “whiteness” must be dismantled if racial justice will ever be achieved.

The course description states that “whiteness is the lynchpin of structures of racial meaning and racial inequality in the United States” and claims that “to preserve whiteness is to preserve racial injustice.”

Students taking the course will “endeavor to make whiteness strange.” In order to make whiteness strange, the description says students must “interrogate whiteness as an unstable legal, political, social, and cultural construction.”

The course readings and concepts are drawn, in part, from the field of “critical race theory.” According toHarvard University, critical race theory “combine[s] progressive political struggles for racial justice with critiques of the conventional legal and scholarly norms which are themselves viewed as part of the illegitimate hierarchies that need to be changed.”

The Portland State University course description claims the construction of “whiteness” attaches material and psychological benefits to “individuals who identify, or are identified, as white.”

Students taking the course will also study the literary work of writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, who referred to the 9/11 first responders as “menaces of nature” in his latest book. In addition to reading the work of Mr. Coates, students will consider questions such as “[w]hat is white normativity, and how does it interact with other normative orders, including male normativity and heteronormativity?”

Go read it all, and be sickened at the absolute garbage that passes for “education” on college campuses today

Maybe instead of targeting guns, we should take a look at antidepressants?

So many, if not all of the “mass shooters” have been on antidepressants. Yet all we talk about is banning guns?

I truly believe there is a very real connection here. But, it may never be addressed by a media that only wants to hype up ratings, and politicians who only want an excuse to take away gun rights.

I would not bet that these people get noted by big nedia

Will CNN, or any other media outlet have these Oregon shooting victims families on to tell their stories? Likely not, since these folks are opposed to gun control

Two female survivors and the family of one of the victims of the Umpqua Community College attack have come out stridently against gun control in the wake of the attack on the community college by a misfit fellow student* who committed suicide when men with guns showed up.

Cheyeanne Fitzgerald, 16, was badly wounded during Oregon shootings when a classmate opened fire, but neither she not her family want to lose their liberties in a knee-jerk “we must do something!” rush to pass gun control laws.

A teenager who was shot in the back during the Umpqua College shootings on Thursday has said she is still in favor of gun ownership – despite her narrow escape.

Cheyeanne Fitzgerald, 16, remains critically ill in hospital following an operation to remove one of her kidneys but her brother Jesse, speaking exclusively to outside the Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg, says she is beginning to improve.

He also revealed that the family have discussed the issue of gun ownership and said that all – including Cheyeanne – remain opposed to controls.

‘We’re pro second amendment, pro guns,’ said Jesse. ‘My sister, my mother, my whole family are all in favor. We were talking about it in the hospital and none of us have changed our minds.’

The family of Quinn Cooper, who was killed in the attack, is also stridently against using the incident to infringe upon our rights.

In a statement released on Friday, his grieving family said their lives were ‘shattered beyond repair’ but said Quinn’s death should not be used as a means of advancing arguments in favour of gun control.

‘We are hearing so many people talk about gun control and taking people’s guns away,’ they said.

‘If the public couldn’t have guns it wouldn’t help since sick people like this will always be able to get their hands on a gun.

‘We need to be able to protect ourselves as a community and as a nation. Please don’t let this horrible act of insanity become about who should or shouldn’t have a gun.

‘Please remember the victims and their families. Please remember Quinn.’

Shelby Wambolt, who surrived the attack which killed friends and fellow students, alsodisagrees with calls for more gun control.

But Ms Wambolt said calls by President Obama for tighter regulations on gun ownership were misguided.

She said: “I know Obama got on the air and talked about gun control and I really don’t believe gun control is the problem.”

“What I’m hearing is that he (the gunman) did have mental illness and some issues but our town doesn’t have a lot of avenues for people who have mental illness.

Yep, do not expect that news special any time soon

Mike McDaniel destroys the Left’s empty rhetoric on “gun violence”

The Second Amendment recognizes the right of the people to keep and bear arms. The Supreme Court’s Hellerdecision (decided June 26, 2008) affirmed that the Second Amendment does indeed speak of the rights of individuals. The court’s McDonalddecision (decided June 28, 2010) applied the Second Amendment to the states. Progressives love to cry “It’s–any decision, edict or law they favor– settled law; even discussing it is a distraction; move along.” Law doesn’t get much more settled than a fundamental, inalienable individual right specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights, affirmed as such and applied to the states by the Supreme Court, yet Progressives never fail to take or manufacture every possible opportunity to inveigh against it. Why?

The attack at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon has provided such an opportunity, just as the Sandy Hook Elementary attack in Newtown, CT provided an opportunity. The motivations…

Introducing Jewel Shuping:

Jewel has Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), a condition in which able-bodied people believe they are meant to be disabled.

Her need to lose her sight was so strong that in 2006 she decided to blind herself – by having a sympathetic psychologist pour DRAIN CLEANER into her eyes.

The psychologist put in numbing eyedrops – acquired by Jewel during a special visit to Canada – and then a couple of drops of drain cleaner in each eye.

Jewel said: “It hurt, let me tell you. My eyes were screaming and I had some drain cleaner going down my cheek burning my skin.

“But all I could think was ‘I am going blind, it is going to be okay.”

Unlike Bruce Jenner, who will never really be a woman, Jewel really is blind now.

Her left eye suffered a ‘corneal meltdown’ – collapsing in on itself and requiring the eye to be removed – while her right eye had glaucoma and cataracts, as well as a webbing of scars.

She is delighted with the outcome.

“I really feel this is the way I was supposed to be born, that I should have been blind from birth.

“When there’s nobody around you who feels the same way, you start to think that you’re crazy. But I don’t think I’m crazy, I just have a disorder. …

“This is not a choice, it’s a need based on a disorder of the brain.”

I am not sure which one is crazier, this poor sick woman, or her “psychologist”

While our President pimps the Oregon shooting, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin stays strong against the folly of gun control

Via Bearing Arms

In an interview this morning on CNN’s “New Day,” Hanlin said gun control has “got to be part of the discussion” but insisted it was inappropriate for him to air his opinions the day after the shooting.

But under continued questioning, Hanlin finally said, “My position on it has not changed.” confirming he will continue to stand firm in his support of Second Amendment rights.

Just this April, he was one of the law enforcement officers to speak out againstSenate Bill 941, arguing that the law, which extended gun background checks to all gun transfers in the state, would be impossible to enforce.

“This law is not going to protect citizens of Oregon in that it is going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,” Hamlin told legislators. “It will not do that.”

He also boldly sent a letter to Vice President Joe Biden in 2013, after the shooting at Sandy Hook. “Gun control is NOT the answer to preventing heinous crimes like school shootings,” Hanlin wrote in his letter to the VP. “Any actions against, or in disregard for our U.S. Constitution and 2nd Amendment rights by the current administration would be irresponsible and an indisputable insult to the American people.”

The letter earned Hanlin praise from the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), a group whose members swear an oath to “uphold and defend” the Constitution.

Additionally, the Sheriff said he and his deputies would refuse to enforce any gun-control restrictions which would “offend the constitutional rights of my citizens,” and the rural community he serves largely appreciates his commitment to protect gun rights.

Thank you Sherriff Hanlin!

Ah yes, Statists tackling “real” problems

Good Freaking Grief!

New York City would be scrubbed of all products that contain tiny microbeads — plastic dirt busters found in everything from toothpaste to exfoliators — under a bill being introduced Wednesday in the City Council.

Councilman Daniel Garodnick (D-Manhattan) is proposing the legislation, which would prohibit sales of items that contain the microbeads in stores, as well as online.

That means New Yorkers who use products like Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub or CVS Brilliant White Toothpaste won’t be able to order them online and have them delivered to New York City.


Garodnick said the beads need to be banned because they are “toxic” and polluting the city’s waterways and marine life.

Again, Good Freaking Grief!

All we really know about the Oregon college massacre is this…………..

We do not know motives, or much else, all that  information will come out. WE know the killer is dead, shot by police. We know our president will use this act of evil to demonize guns, and push for more gun control, since, you know, those gun free zones work so well right? We know that once again, the shooter only stopped when good people with guns showed up. Hmmm, a mad man, an evil man, ignores gun free zone restrictions, slaughters many disarmed people, and only ceases his evil deeds when people who ARE armed show up to stop him, and the first response from the Left is to call for more of the same laws that helped the shooter? And, we DO know one more thing about the evil done today. Another “gun-free zone” was used by an evil murderer to kill lots of people, and all the usual suspects can do is cry for more gun free zones.
