Leftist Evil Update: 177 House Democrats Vote Against Bill That Makes Killing A Born Baby Murder

177 House Members Vote Against Bill That Makes Killing A Born Baby Murder – CNS


The U.S. House of Representatives voted 248 to 177 on Friday afternoon to approve a bill that would give a born baby who survives an abortion the same protection under the law as “any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.”

Under the bill, the Congressional Research Service explained in its official summary of the legislation, “An individual who commits an overt act that kills a child born alive is subject to criminal prosecution for murder.”

The bill would also “require any health care practitioner who is present when a child is born alive following an abortion or attempted abortion to: (1) exercise the same degree of care as reasonably provided to any other child born alive at the same gestational age, and (2) ensure that such child is immediately admitted to a hospital.”

Five Democrats voted for the bill, and all 177 votes against it were cast by Democratic members. One member, Rep. John Garamendi (D.-Calif.), voted present, and eight members, including three Republicans and five Democrats did not vote.

Among the members who voted against this bill that would clarify that it is an act of murder to kill a baby who survives an abortion were House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.), Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D.-Fla.), Rep. Jackie Speier (D.-Calif.), and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D.-N.Y.)

The bill was sponsored by Rep. Trent Franks (R.-Ariz.), who was joined by 98 co-sponsors. These included Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R.-Tenn.), Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R.-Mo.), and Rep. Kristi Noem (R.-S.D.).

“The Born Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act protects little children who have been born alive,” Rep. Franks said in a speech on the House floor before the vote. “No one in this body can obscure the humanity and the personhood of these little born alive babies.”

“The abortion industry labored all these decades to convince the world that unborn children and born children should be completely separated in our minds, that while born children are persons worthy of protection, unborn children are not persons and are not worthy of protection,” he said.

“But those who oppose this bill to protect born alive babies now have the impossible task of trying to join born children and unborn children back together again and then trying to convince all of us to condemn them both as inhuman and not worthy of protection after all,” he said.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney spoke against the bill on the House floor.

“I stand in strong opposition to this punitive and intrusive bill,” she said.

“This is politics at its most manipulative and politics that should never be permitted to come between a patient and her doctor,” she said.

“This bill attempts to criminalize legal medical care and punish millions of women by rolling back reproductive choices. It wages a kind of guerilla warfare against Roe v. Wade by threatening doctors with jail time for providing care to their patients.”

Former Falls Church, VA Democrat Party Chairman Tried To Hire Hit Man To Murder Little Girls He Molested

Former Democratic Chairman Contacted Hit Man To Murder Little Girls He Molested – Gateway Pundit


Democratic chairman Michael Gardner is accused of assaulting a family member who was under 13 at the time of the assault, officials said. He also reportedly molested two little girls at his daughter’s sleepover. (WUSA)

Michael Gardner reportedly tried to hire a hit man to murder the two little girls he molested.

The Washington Post reported:

A former Falls Church Democratic Party chairman, charged with molesting two young girls, talked about hiring a hit man to kill them before they could be witnesses at his March 4 trial, according to court documents.

Loudoun County prosecutors said Michael Gardner, who is scheduled to stand trial for allegedly molesting the girls, approached an inmate about finding someone to kill the girls. The inmate reached out to authorities last month.

In a letter, received by authorities last month, the inmate told Gardner that he knew someone who could “help with…. the ‘3 problems’ you have pre-trial,” according to a motion filed by the prosecution on Thursday, allegedly referring to the two girls and a unspecified third issue. The letter was sent from the inmate in response to “multiple and specific conversations” Gardner allegedly had with the inmate, according to court papers.

Loudoun County prosecutor Nicole Wittmann said she did not know whether Gardner contacted a hit man.

Gardner was convicted in 2012 of molesting two girls, who were 9 and 10 at the time, during a slumber party for his daughter’s 10th birthday.

He was sentenced to 22 years in prison. Then his conviction was overturned by the state Supreme Court, which said the trial judge improperly stopped Gardner’s defense attorney from asking character witnesses about Gardner. He was granted a new trial.

Prosecutors from the Loudoun County commonwealth’s attorney’s office are handling the case, because the Arlington County commonwealth’s attorney knows the Gardner family.

In a motion filed Thursday, which was provided to The Washington Post, Loudoun Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Alejandra Rueda, who is prosecuting the case with Wittmann, quoted a letter from the inmate to Gardner.

“I want you to know I haven’t forgotten what we’ve discussed. The friend you asked me to contact to see if he could help with the ‘3 problems’ you have pre-trial will be passing through VA on a FL to NY ‘run,’ ” the letter said, according to the motion. Referring to the alleged hit man, the letter continues: “Get back to me right away because I don’t [want] his visiting you to interfere with Robin and the kids [sic] anticipated visit.”



Black Gangbangers Murder 5-Year-Old White Girl Sitting In Her Grandpa’s Lap (Video)

Black Males Murder Five Year Old White Girl In Milwaukee. No National Outrage – Wounded American Warrior


Two black males in Milwaukee walked up to the home of a white family, in a majority black neighborhood, and unleashed a hail of gunfire. A five year old white girl was murdered while sitting on her grandfather’s lap.

Milwaukee police say there is no question the shooters were deliberating trying to kill people inside the house. At least a dozen bullets were fired directly into the house. There may have been a third person driving a getaway car.

The house was located in a census tract that is 77% black and 14% white.

The Milwaukee Sentinel and Milwaukee channel 6 have actually been trying to downplay the murder. They are falsly reporting that it was “a stray bullet.” That directly contradicts all the evidence found by police.


If the races were reversed, this would be the biggest news story in the entire western world right now. Imagine for one second that two white males walked up to a black occupied home, in a mostly white neighborhood, and opened fire. Imagine a five year old black girl was murdered while sitting on her grandfather’s lap. There would weeks of national coverage. There would be documentaries. The story would be revisited by the national media over and over for the next ten years.

For decades, Midwestern black street gangs have used racially motivated violence against white people as gang initiations. The most common form is mob attacks on white college students. However, more and more gang initiations are targeting random white people for shootings. There have been numerous fatalities. Black on white hate crime violence is also surging due to media agitation over Ferguson. A panel on MSNBC even urged blacks to “make white people feel uncomfortable.” A statement that seemed to greenlight black on white hate crime violence.



Illegal Alien Minors Being Held For Placement In U.S. Admit To Engaging In Torture And Murder

Illegal Unaccompanied Minors Being Held For Placement In U.S. Admit To Engaging In Torture And Murder – Townhall


Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to “stem the tide” of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States.

“We have six minors in Nogales who have admitted to killing and doing grievous bodily injuries. One admitted to killing as young as eight years old,” an agent tells Townhall anonymously for fear of losing his job for speaking out. “They are being held for placement in the U.S.”

By U.S. legal standards many gang members operating in Central American countries and traveling north are classified as minors due to being under the age of 18. However, many young males are actively engaged in violent cartel and criminal activity, yet are treated as children when processed through the Department of Human Services or Department of Homeland Security systems.

“But remember, this is a ‘humanitarian crisis.’ They are just kids,” he said in a frustrated and sarcastic tone. “They are MS-13 gang members. They’ve done everything from torture to murder. They act as teenage ‘enforcers.'”



Over 36,000 Criminal Illegals Convicted Of Everything From Rape To Murder Were Released In 2013

Murderers, Rapists, Kidnappers: Over 36,000 Criminal Illegal Immigrants Released In 2013 – Daily Caller

Nearly 200 murderers, over 400 rapists, and 300 kidnappers in the U.S. illegally were released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement while awaiting deportation proceedings, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies.


A total of 36,007 criminal illegal immigrants that were being processed for deportation were freed in 2013. Together, they committed nearly 88,000 crimes, according to the report, published Monday.

“I was astonished at not only the huge number of convicted criminals who were freed from ICE custody last year – an average of almost 100 a day – but also at the large number of very serious crimes they had committed,” said Jessica Vaughan, the director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, in a statement.

ICE gathered the statistics – which include a breakdown by crime – in response to congressional inquiry following another report released earlier this year by the Center of Immigration Studies.

That report, which was based on internal Department of Homeland Security documents, showed that ICE encountered over 193,000 illegal immigrant convicts. Charging documents were issued for 125,000, and nearly 68,000 were released.

That review also found that 870,000 illegal immigrants had been removed from ICE dockets despite being in defiance of the law. The number of illegal aliens targeted for deportation fell 28 percent between 2012 and 2013, according to the documents.

The 36,007 illegal immigrants reported Monday were freed by ICE during the final disposition of their cases. The 68,000 from the previous report were criminals who encountered ICE agents – often in jails – but were released without undergoing deportation proceedings.

The 36,007 were released by bond, parole, unsupervised release, or on their own recognizance.

Besides violent criminals, ICE released nearly 16,000 illegal immigrants convicted of driving under the influence. The report also shows that ICE released nearly 2,700 illegal immigrants convicted of assault, 1,300 convicted for domestic violence, and nearly 1,300 convicted for battery.

“These figures call into question President Obama’s request to Congress for permission to reduce immigration detention capacity by 10 percent in favor of permission to make wider use of experimental alternatives to detention,” reads the report.

In June 2011, the administration began applying “prosecutorial discretion” to many deportation cases. This has led to a 40 percent decrease in the number of deportations.

“Congress should resist further action on immigration reform until the public can be assured that enforcement is more robust and that ICE can better deal with its criminal alien caseload without setting them free in our communities,” said Vaughan in a statement.

Stripper Who Falsely Accused Duke Lacrosse Players Of Rape Found Guilty Of Murder (Video)

Watch The Moment When Woman Who Falsely Accused Duke Lacrosse Players Of Rape Is Found Guilty Of Murder – The Blaze

The woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape has been found guilty of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of her boyfriend.


The jury deliberated for about six hours over two days before reaching their verdict in the trial of 34-year-old Crystal Mangum, who was sentenced to between 14 years and 18 years in prison.

Mangum was on trial in the death of 46-year-old Reginald Daye. He was stabbed on April 3, 2011 and he died of complications 10 days later.

In 2006, Mangum claimed Duke lacrosse players gang raped her at a team party where she was hired as a stripper.

The three arrested were eventually declared innocent by North Carolina’s attorney general after Mangum’s story crumbled and her mental stability was questioned.

The following are courtroom clips showing the moment Mangum heard her verdict read, as well as statements from the victim’s family:


More from the Los Angeles Times regarding the Duke lacrosee case:

“You have all been told some fantastic lies, and I look forward to watching them unravel in the weeks to come, as they already have in weeks past… The truth will come out,” lacrosse player David Evans said after he was indicted.

The case did slowly fall apart as DNA evidence failed to tie Mangum to any of the 46 white players on the team. She eventually recanted her statement and said she was not sure she had been raped, although she insisted some sort of sexual assault had taken place.

In court, defense lawyers revealed that the prosecuting attorney and the lab director had withheld evidence that showed that the DNA on Mangum’s body did not match the defendants, and that it matched other men. The defense claimed that the district attorney who was prosecuting violated police policy by using a photo lineup that showed photos only of lacrosse players and did not mix in other men.

“She was, in effect, given a multiple choice test in which there were no wrong answers,” a defense motion said.

The district attorney withdrew from the case, resigned and was disbarred.

*VIDEO* If Obama Had A Son He’d Look Like This Teen Who’s Accused Of Killing His Teacher


Did The Chemical Weapons Used To Murder Hundreds Of Syrian Civilians Come From Saddam’s Iraq?

Who’s Lying Now? Syria’s Chemical Attacks Indicate President Bush Didn’t ‘Lie’ About WMDs – TPNN

The Obama Administration has further confirmed what military analysts have been suggesting for months; according to a senior Obama Administration official on Sunday, there is “very little doubt” within the intelligence community that Syria has used chemical weapons against their own citizens.

Such a revelation leads to the questions: Where did Syria get the weapons of mass destruction? And whatever happened to those WMDs in Iraq, Syria’s neighbor to the East?


The statement by the senior official was released on Sunday under the condition that the official not be named publicly. It includes strong indications that the Obama Administration’s stance is that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s military forces used chemical weapons on civilians and that Syria’s commitment to allowing UN inspectors in comes too late.

The statement notes,

“Based on the reported number of victims, reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, witness accounts and other facts gathered by open sources, the U.S. intelligence community, and international partners, there is very little doubt at this point that a chemical weapon was used by the Syrian regime against civilians in this incident.”

The official also claimed that the President has not yet decided whether or not to act on the suspected attack in a Damascus suburb that left hundreds dead.

The tougher posturing by the White House comes after months of criticism by Republicans that the Obama Administration had not taken seriously enough allegations that Syria had used chemical weapons in previous attacks. President Obama declared last year that the use of WMDs against civilians by Syria would be a “red line” that would force action from the international community.

Though naval forces have moved closer to Syria, indicating a potential military strike against select Syrian military installations, Syria has declared that any military engagement would force them to “create a ball of fire that will inflame the Middle East.”

The Obama Administration will have some tough choices ahead. Iran is allied with Syria and, more dangerously, the Russians remain the only member of the U.N. Security Council still allied with Syria, which can further complicate the already-strained relations between the two countries.

Further, the Obama Administration has already augmented several of the Bush Administration’s more unpopular policies by heightening drone usage and turning NSA surveillance onto the American people. Mounting a military operation without the complete backing of the UN over WMDs will only make it harder for the Obama Administration to pretend that they represent the “hope” and “change” promised to the American people.

Lastly, admitting that Syria is using WMDs will force America to question where the Syrians obtained the sarin gas. As intelligence prior to the invasion of Iraq indicated that Saddam’s Iraq had sarin gas and amidst large speculation that such weapons were moved to Syria, the use of sarin gas in Syria might prove to vindicate the Bush Administration’s assertions that WMDs were, in fact, in Iraq.

In January, 2006, former Iraqi general, Georges Sada publicly declared that Saddam’s military transferred large stockpiles of chemical weapons to Syria using civilian aircraft with the passenger seats removed. “There are weapons of mass destruction gone out from Iraq to Syria, and they must be found and returned to safe hands,’ Mr. Sada said. ‘I am confident they were taken over.’”

Sada, Hussein’s number 2 in the Iraqi Air Force, claims that 56 trips by two Iraqi Airways Boeings were used to smuggle the weapons into Syria under the guise of civilian flights. “Saddam realized, this time, the Americans are coming,” Sada said. “They handed over the weapons of mass destruction to the Syrians.”

In March, retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney spoke publicly about the likelihood of WMDs in Syria and the high probability that the weapons were moved to Syria immediately prior to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

After an alleged chemical attack near Aleppo, Syria, Lt. Gen. McInerney was asked what the chances were that the chemicals weapons came from Iraq.

“I think there is a high probability of that,” McInerney declared. “That’s conjecture, but we do know prior to Operation Iraqi Freedom, there was a lot of vehicles crossing the border into Syria. And there was a great deal of conjecture. A Iraqi major general swore by it. He said he delivered it. And so I think that it would be a very high probability if we could get into those bunkers that they would have Iraqi signatures on them.”

If the Obama administration authorizes military action without UN approval, we can expect that the White House will claim that this military action is, somehow, radically different from Bush’s military action. Further, Americans shouldn’t expect to hear any apologies from the left to Bush or his supporters. Though Syria’s WMD usage might seem to vindicate President Bush’s intelligence reports, Democrats will likely have a hard time letting go of the increasingly-improbable theory that Bush purposefully lied in order to wage a war.

Three Black Teens Murder White Man Because They Were Bored

Oklahoma: Three Black Teens Murder White Australian Baseball Player Because They Were “Bored” – Weasel Zippers

Cat got your tongue, Al?


Via Herald Sun:

The images of three youths police say murdered Melbourne baseballer Christopher Lane have emerged.

The Oklahoma teens who face first-degree murder charges have been named as Chancey Luna, James Edwards and Michael Jones.

But their parents yesterday protested their innocence.

Jennifer Luna, whose son is suspected of firing the fatal shot, claimed her son was at home saying: “My son is not that way. My son is a good kid.”

Christopher Lane, 22, was randomly gunned down while jogging through the town of Duncan in Oklahoma on Friday afternoon local time. […]

It comes as Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said he had secured the confession of the 17-year-old who summoned investigators to his jail cell and claimed he and the younger boys were bored “so they decided to kill somebody”.

Trayvon Martins mother lies about stand your ground laws

Here we go, the Left AGAIN, lying to achieve a political goal. In this case the goal being to outlaw self-defense. I know, I know, I must not attack this woman, or even question her. She lost her son, and that gives her Moral Authority that cannot be challenged right? WRONG! This woman is LYING, and she knows damn well she is lying. And she is lying to curtail my rights to protect myself and those precious to me! Sorry, but her absolute moral authority card expired when she started pissing on my human rights!

Get ready for the Left to hold up this Zimmerman juror as a hero

Via The Blaze

In an interview with ABC News set to air Thursday, the woman, known only as “Maddy,” said everyone on the all-female jury felt Zimmerman was guilty, but that the evidence didn’t let them convict him.

“You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty,” Maddy said. “But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence.”

Note that she says there was not evidence to convict Zimmerman. That is something the media will no doubt completely ignore when they start blowing this out of proportion tomorrow. The media, and Liberal politicians will focus ONLY on the “we felt he was guilty” part of her interview. Odd it is that she says in the interview that she was the one dissenter against acquitting him

She revealed that she wanted to convict Zimmerman of second-degree murder, and “fought to the end” before finally voting to acquit.

“I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. I fought to the end,” she said.

But on the second day of deliberations, she said, she realized there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Zimmerman of second-degree murder or of manslaughter, which the jury was also allowed to consider.

So after sitting through the trial, and after two days of deliberations, THEN, she finally realized there was no evidence? Sorry that does not add up. Sounds to me, and this is only an opinion here, that she is trying to ingratiate herself with the Left here. Wonder how many times MSNBS will have her on?


What if Zimmerman had been Black, and Trayvon Martin White?

I hear a lot of that from the justice for Trayvon types. Here is a story though about a Black man, who confronted three WHITE teens who were trying to break into his car, shooting and killing one of them in self-defense. He was charged, and acquitted. He has gone through legal Hell, but funny, I do not recall Je$$e Jackson or Al Sharpton coming to this man’s aid. I do not recall the NAACP rushing to defend him. I do not recall anyone from the Left trying to make this a national story on race either. I guess stories have to fit into agendas BEFORE we see any outrage from the race pimps.


NAACP is a disgrace

Their leadership race baits, and uses divisive language in an effort to stay relevant. Rather than  tackling real problems, like Black crime rates, 93% of Black murder victims are murdered by Blacks, or the rampant issue of unwed pregnancies, the NAACP rants about Confederate flags or monuments, and injects race into issues to stir up “outrage”. The NAACP is a Left-Wing group, period! Take how they treat Black Conservatives for instance

Diversity? Tolerance? Actually helping Blacks in America? Fat chance, the NAACP would rather persecute a man acquitted for murder than try to do any actual good.

Woman Caught On Tape Casually Plotting Murder Of Husband With Cop Posing As Hit Man

Breathtaking Footage Of Wife Meeting With Fake Hit Man To Plan Her Husband’s Murder – Daily Caller

Muskegon County resident Julia Merfeld hired a Michigan State police detective disguised as a hit man to have her husband murdered.


Two meetings between the two were caught on hidden camera and captured this shocking footage.

Merfeld was arrested after the second meeting with the fake hit man, both conversations occurring in his vehicle and lasting about 11 minutes.

21-year-old Merfeld told the cop she thought was a hit-man, “When I first decided to do this… its not that we weren’t getting along. But… terrible as it sounds, it was easier than divorcing him.”

Authorities attribute another motive: her 27-year-old husband’s $400,000 life insurance policy. Merfeld planned to use some of the life insurance money to pay the hit man’s fee, she told him.

In this astonishing footage, the young wife discusses possible dates for the killing in between laughs and checking her calendar on her cell phone.


During the second meeting, she gives him a floor plan of the house and directions. She then tells him she wants it done in the most painless way possible.

The detective tells Merfeld that when she leaves his car it will be a done deal, to which the young wife responds, “It makes me sad.” She proceeds to leave the vehicle and wish the hit man good luck.

The man who tipped off police was Carlos Ramos, her co-worker whom she offered $50,000 to kill her husband. Instead, he called police, who set up the meetings with the fake hit man that led to her arrest, according to MLive.

The couple recently moved to Muskegon, MI from New Jersey with their two young children.

Merfeld is currently being held in Muskegon County Jail where she awaits her trial on July 30. The judge committed to a minimum sentence of six years and a maximum up to life in prison after she pleaded guilty to solicitation for murder on June 26th.

Did Adam Lanza pick Newtown school because it was an easy target

We argue that “gun-free zones” make easy targets for nutcases. The Left scoffs at our logic. Well………..

According to law enforcement Newtown killer Adam Lanza picked the local primary school because it was an easy target and he knew he could murder a lot of children in one attack. And he did just that.
CBS reported, via Pirate’s Cove.

Law enforcement sources say Adam Lanza was motivated by violent video games and a strong desire to kill more people than another infamous mass murderer.

Sources say Lanza saw himself as being in direct competition with Anders Breivik, a Norwegian man who killed 77 people in July 2011.

Two officials who have been briefed on the Newtown, Conn., investigation say Lanza wanted to top Breivik’s death toll and targeted nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School because it was the “easiest target” with the “largest cluster of people.”

Evidence shows that his mind, sources say, Lanza was also likely acting out the fantasies of a video game as he killed 20 first graders and six adults at the school. For Lanza, the deaths apparently amounted to some kind of “score.”

So, in short he was whacked completely out of his mind, and picked the easiest target he could find. What a shocker! The Left, of course, will still blame guns.


Another update on Chris Kyle murder

Something has been bugging me about the report from the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram

The suspect, identified as Eddie Ray Routh, 25, was pursued to a house in Lancaster by officers, including a local SWAT team. Routh again try to flee in a vehicle but was stopped about 9 p.m. after spikes were laid across a road, Bryant said.

“The suspect has been caught and is in custody in Lancaster,” the sheriff said. Erath County sheriff’s investigators and Texas Rangers were securing a capital murder warrant, he said.

Witnesses told sheriff’s investigators that the gunman opened fire on the two men around 3:30 p.m., then fled in a pickup truck belonging to one of the victims. The sheriff’s department didn’t get a call until around 6 p.m.

Why the 2-and-a-half hour delay in the police getting a call? Something does not add up about that. Again, details are somewhat sketchy, and I am still looking, and re-reading everything I can find. More updates when I can 


Ah, in Liberal Fairy Tale Land no one ever kills anyone with a knife, a club, or any other weapon. People ONLY die if a gun is involved

I have enjoyed Jason Whitlock, a sports writer, I have enjoyed a number of his columns. I have not always agreed with his take, but, his latest piece, written in response to Javon Belcher’s murder and suicide is a perfect example of how Liberals live in an alternate reality.

I would argue that your rationalizations speak to how numb we are in this society to gun violence and murder. We’ve come to accept our insanity. We’d prefer to avoid seriously reflecting upon the absurdity of the prevailing notion that the second amendment somehow enhances our liberty rather than threatens it.

How many young people have to die senselessly? How many lives have to be ruined before we realize the right to bear arms doesn’t protect us from a government equipped with stealth bombers, predator drones, tanks and nuclear weapons?

Our current gun culture simply ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.

In the coming days, Belcher’s actions will be analyzed through the lens of concussions and head injuries. Who knows? Maybe brain damage triggered his violent overreaction to a fight with his girlfriend. What I believe is, if he didn’t possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

See, ONLY guns are used to commit murder. Whitlock just KNOWS that if belcher had not had a gun, he would never have stabbed his girlfriend, or strangled her, or beat her to death with a tire iron because in Whitlock’s world, that NEVER happens. If not for guns, well  all violence would stop I suppose. Ah, but that fantasy is not the only one that exists in the mind of Whitlock

That is the message I wish Chiefs players, professional athletes and all of us would focus on Sunday and moving forward. Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.

But we won’t. We’ll watch Sunday’s game and comfort ourselves with the false belief we’re incapable of the wickedness that exploded inside Jovan Belcher Saturday morning.

See, handguns NEVER enhance our safety. Whitlock knows this because, well, he wants it to be that way. Of course, when I stepped into the alley behind the restaurant I ran in 1998, Jason Whitlock was not there to defend me from the thug hiding behind the fire escape. Neither was any other Liberal. But for that Colt .45 I had, I would have been a victim. Years before I was born, my grandmother answered a knock at her screen door. A man claiming to work for the phone company said he needed to check her phone. She told him no, and he proceeded to come through the door. And you know what, Jason Whitlock, was not there, but my grandfathers rifle was, and her pointing that rifle at the would be intruder seemed to have a stark impact on that intruders mindset. Just last week, in Grand Prairie, Texas, a few miles from where I live, a thug decided to break into a home there. Was Jason Whitlock and his moral outrage there to stop him. No, but, the homeowners 40 caliber handgun was, and it was the thug that was shot, not the homeowner.

So, perhaps Mr. Whitlock should do a bit of research into defensive gun uses. Of course, that would require a bit of thinking, rather than emoting, that might be too much for Whitlock.



Liberals want more gun control. Why? So more of America can be like Chicago and New York?

Great point by Bill Quick

» 19 murders overnight in Obama’s home town of Chicago – Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

19 people were shot in Chicago between Thursday evening and Friday morning, with 13 of the 19 shot in a span of just 30 minutes. Chicago’s murder rate has gone up 31 percent since 2011 when Mayor Rahm Emanuel was elected.

Balance this against the ocean of publicity that will now be focused on a relatively minor (in terms of deadliness) shooting that will get all that publicity because it occurred in a NYC landmark. And then keep in mind that these two cities share some of the strictest gun-grabbing laws in the nation.

BINGO! Of course, we know what the Left really wants, for us to be more like Australia
