U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Olathe East student allegedly used ‘ghost gun’ in shooting at school,” Kansas City’s KSHB 41 reports. “Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe confirmed … that the gun Jaylon Elmore, 18, allegedly used in the shooting was an untraceable firearm.”
“I’m a big Second Amendment person, but ghost guns (are) really only being operated by unlawful individuals who shouldn’t be having firearms,” Howe went on to say, oblivious to how big that “but” of his really is. “I think that’s something we’re going to take from this is that those types of firearms should be stopped.”
If he understood the Second Amendment he’d know it’s not the gun, and that the ability to continue to make firearms, as Americans always have, is not only a right but a necessary capability to protect freedom.
That’s especially true in light of violence monopolists laying the groundwork for confiscation via an unlawful firearms registry that exploits and punishes the “law-abiding” for obeying not-so-hidden agenda infringements.
The solution is to follow immutable and truly “universal” natural law and deny to predators easy prey. The school resource officer returning fire showed all who care to look that it took an armed defender to stop the aggressor.
So naturally, the antis opt for gun bans, and ridicule the truth that it takes a “good guy with a gun,” or they fall back on the “Police are the ‘Only Ones’ qualified” red herring to discourage citizens from having the means to defend themselves. And naturally, the violence continues.
“3D printed guns, ghost guns, and Glock switches are a growing concern,” the photo caption on Click2 Houston’s article about ATF training local police asserts.
“In January, Roland Caballero was accused of shooting three Houston police officers,” the report explains. “Caballero now faces federal charges. He is accused of being in possession of a 3D printer and guns with Glock switches.”
Here’s what the story directing everyone’s attention to “scary” hardware doesn’t tell its readers—they would have to take it on themselves and research further to find a month-old report that reveals:
“According to records, Caballero recently had an open warrant issued out for him due to an unlawful carrying weapon charge and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon … Additional records show offenses dating back as far as 2008, where Caballero was charged with deadly conduct.”
“As far back as 2008…”
Who thinks the answer is to impose more prohibitions on the rest of us? Aside from would-be rulers and the useful idiots who follow them…?
“Man used ‘ghost gun’ to kill 3 daughters in church,” ABC Sacramento practically screams.
“The gunman who killed his three daughters, a chaperone who was supervising his visit with the children and himself in a Northern California church this week was armed with an unregistered ‘ghost gun,’” the report elaborates. “David Mora, 39, was armed with a homemade semiautomatic rifle-style weapon. He had an illegal 30-round ammunition magazine and 17 bullets were fired, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office said.”
A prior restraining order didn’t stop him. Neither did charges for “resisting arrest, battery on a police officer and driving under the influence.” The inconvenient truth? Either one of those should have.
That’s because “Mora was in the country illegally. He overstayed his visa.” And insanely subversive California “law” took over:
“ICE asked to be notified when he was released from jail after he was arrested in Merced County for assaulting the California Highway Patrol officer. The Merced County Sheriff’s Office told the AP that under California’s so-called sanctuary state law, it does not notify immigration officials about in-custody people who are being released, and ICE was never notified. The 2017 state law restricts local law enforcement’s cooperation with federal officials except when immigrants are accused of very serious crimes.”
Yeah, by all means, let’s everybody run around in circles screaming about “ghost guns.” Brought to you “courtesy” of totalitarian wannabes, violence monopoly fanatics, self-deluded “commonsense gun safety law advocates,” and useful media idiots, every one of whom has blood on their hands as they blame the carnage they make inevitable on our rights…
