Crazy Killers & You’re To Blame, Here They Come Again for Your Guns

Crazy Killers & You’re To Blame, Here They Come Again for Your Guns

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- In the wake of a pair of mass murders within the space of a couple of weeks, top Democrat and current resident of the senior living center in D.C, Joe Biden is pressing for new gun control laws and Congress is enthusiastically cooperating.

It is worth noting right up front that none of the proposed measures would have had any impact at all on these recent mass murders, nor would they have had any significant impact on any of the mass murders of the past two decades.

Please contact your two US Senators and urge them to oppose any and all legislation restricting firearms, especially criminalization of private firearms transfers, frequently referred to as “expanded background checks,” extension of the time the feds can delay a firearm transfer, any promotion of Extreme Risk Protection Order legislation, and any sort of ban on so-called “assault weapons” or “ammunition feeding devices.”

Congress was already moving forward with gun control legislation before these latest attacks, but the murders, seemingly right on cue, are helping to generate an emotional sense of urgency. Naturally, the lamestream media is doing all they can to amplify a sense of urgency and to vilify guns and gun owners, while pretty much ignoring the actual murderers (not to mention the bloodshed that regularly happens in gang-infested cities like Chicago, Washington, and Los Angeles). Of course, anyone who does not agree that immediate passage of ineffective, unconstitutional restrictions on Second Amendment rights, is painted as callous and indifferent to the suffering of the victims of violent attacks, and has blood on their hands.

The first attack occurred in Atlanta Georgia, where a demented sex addict decided to cure his affliction by killing some women who worked at massage parlors where he had previously received sexual services. Since most of the women happened to be of Asian extraction, the media has cast a narrative that the tragedy was an anti-Asian, white supremacist attack, even though there is no indication that race or ethnicity played any role in the killer’s motives.

The murderer used a semi-auto pistol which he had purchased through legal means, from a licensed dealer, earlier that same day, after passing a comprehensive criminal and mental health background check. There is no indication that any sort of waiting period would have prevented the man from doing what he did. When he was apprehended by police, he said he was on his way to another massage parlor to continue his rampage. (It’s also worth noting that the media has assiduously avoided the common term “massage parlor,” instead of referring to the businesses as “spas” in their reporting on this case.)

In the Boulder, Colorado attack, a bitter, mentally unstable, 21-year old immigrant from Syria with connections to ISIS went on a killing spree after driving 25 miles out of his way to a known Kosher-Grocery store. Authorities, the media, and politicians say the man’s motives are still a mystery, but in recent Facebook posts, he had complained about not being able to get a girlfriend, railed against Donald Trump, and claimed that he was being oppressed and spied upon by “Islamophobes.” So he purchased an AR-style rifle and a week later took it and a pistol and started randomly shooting people at the popular Jewish grocery store. It appears that at least part of his motive was to retaliate against people for their irrational fear of followers of the “religion of peace.”

The Boulder-Jihad-Murderer too, purchased his firearms legally, passing background checks in the process. He acquired the primary murder weapon from a licensed dealer one week prior to the massacre, and appears to have been planning the attack for some time, meaning that a waiting period is unlikely to have had any significant impact on his actions. Family members refer to him as having mental issues, but they also have said they knew he had a gun, and took no actions to make sure he wasn’t planning to harm himself or others.

In an address to the nation in response to the Colorado shooting, President Biden said he would not ‘speculate’ on the shooter’s motive (especially after his administration recently ended the very effective Trump “Muslim travel ban”) but used the shooting to call for a federal ban on “assault weapons.” Two gun control bills passed the Democratic-dominated House earlier this month and are currently pending action in the evenly split Senate. A Senate bill to ban “assault weapons” has also been promised by Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

Expect the “assault weapons” ban bill to be talked about a lot, with lots of speculation that passing it might not be feasible due to the “undue influence” of the “powerful NRA,” followed by mentions of the other pending bills. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the Senate Majority Leader, knows that he isn’t going to ever get the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster of the AW ban legislation, but he’ll provide good political theater, pretending like that’s his primary objective. In reality, Schumer’s focus will be on peeling off enough Republican votes to pass the expanded background check bill and the NICS reform bill. He probably won’t even bring the AW ban legislation to a vote, but he’ll loudly blame Republicans for being obstructionist and blocking the bill. He’ll also take the opportunity to promote the idea of doing away with the Senate filibuster.

Republicans who betray GunVoters and vote for expanded background checks, extended “Delayed” times for NICS checks, or so-called “red flag laws” will catch the lion’s share of the blame, whether the bills pass or not, while Schumer might give some vulnerable, “pro-gun” Democrats permission to vote against the bills, as long as there are enough foolish Republicans to make up the difference.

This is a classic DC power play, and you can bet the Democrats will play it for all it’s worth, convincing “reasonable” (read “stupid”) Republicans to alienate their own core voters by supporting gun control bills, and at the same time pillorying the Republican Party for blocking the AW ban.

The only way Schumer’s plan can fail is if Republicans hold the line and block all gun control proposals.

Any Republican that crosses the line and votes with Democrats on gun control, is hurting themselves and their party, reducing the chances of Republican victories in 2022. Also expect Joe Biden to respond to Congresses actions or inaction, with moves to restrict guns and ammunition through Executive Orders.

Contact your Senators – Republican or Democrat –

…and tell them in no uncertain terms that support for any gun control will guarantee that you actively work for their defeat in their next election. Point out to Republicans, that Republicans voting for gun control, is what keeps GunVoters away from the polls and hurts Republican candidates across the board.

You can reach the Congressional Switchboard by dialing 202-224-3121. Please keep your messages brief and polite.

But, but, but……it’s for the Children. What about all the Jewish children gassed, burned, shot because of unarmed parents at the hands of a Government with arms. Those numbers really make the deaths in American streets, grocery stores, schools, massage parlors……..as terrible as they are, appear trivial…..except as a perceived justification for controlling and dis-arming the Little Peeps. A politician with a law never stops a bad guy with a gun. He only controls the good guys which is his true agenda. He who has the Might, determines who has the Right. There’s the gun controllers’ agenda in a nut shell.… Read more »

I was once again saddened to read about the inability, it seems, by everyone concerning Mr. Schumer (D NY). I guess that there are just too many states to” be handled” by the congress. there must be a reduction in the number of states limited to TWENTY (maybe 22 for Democrats). It seems that MOST people have ten fingers and ten toes (except some Democrats) so therefore there should be only twenty states My reasoning is…there are FIFTY Republican (labled) senators and FOURTY EIGHT Democratic senators with one independent (King) and one socialist(Sanders). When I went to school ,before new… Read more »

If their intention is to enrage legal gun owners more than they have already, please go ahead. But when the hammer falls, they aren’t going to like what happens and will go down in history as traitors to the Constitution and also doing things that brought the country to war against itself.

This is not a public policy debate. It has not been a public policy debate for over 50 years. This is an existential battle between irreconcilable forces. The forces of individual liberty face off with the forces of collectivist totalitarianism. Face it. Most of corporate, academic and wealthy America see collectivism as a means to get all of the chips. The price is your individual liberty. Game on.

Pearls of wisdom.

Those of us who cherish our freedom face an enemy who deserves (and only understands) one thing: death.

That is not even close to being true. You are projecting what is true about some very high-profile people onto a very large group of people who do not speak publicly.

Total waste of my time to contact my Federal representatives. We are way, way beyond correspondence/voting/pleading at this point in our history. ‘Soap box, ballot box, cartridge box’ – Abraham Lincoln. Connect the dots, Jeff.

I called the offices of my Senators, Lankford and Inhofe, a few days ago and asked the staffers direct questions to which I could not get a straight answer. The answers I did get were coached in ambiguous terms and phrasing. I can understand not letting your “war plans” get out but that was not what I was asking about. I was very disappointed in that this was the first time I had been stonewalled to this extent.

They were waiting for the consultants to clue them in to which direction the political winds blew at that particular point in time. Our political classes are not grounded in principles. They are grounded in a desire to survive politically at any cost. That is why you were talking to a tree stump.

Agreed.

It needs to become an unwritten law that if a politician violates the Constitution, or concocts legislation in an attempt to violate the Constitution, he will die.
