Civil Rights Trump a Politician’s Need to ‘Do Something’ After Tragedy

Biden-Truth NRA-ILA
Biden’s plan is the same as ever: gun control. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- While most Americans were spending time with family this Memorial Day weekend commemorating those who gave their lives in defense of this great country, a growing list of politicians and members of the gun-ban industry – aided and abetted by their friends in the legacy media – were busy conspiring how to best strip away the very rights so many brave men and women died to defend.

These public officials have desecrated the memory of 19 young children and two brave teachers by turning their senseless murders into a tool to force politicians on both sides of the aisle to do something – and the something they have in mind will further erode our civil rights. By Tuesday morning, they had successfully hijacked the narrative by focusing the public’s attention on the gun and the gunmaker, not the gunman, as if the weapon had a mind of its own and wielded itself.

Rather than placing the blame where it belongs, on the madman and the despicable police response that helped facilitate his killings, the politicians, gun banners and their lapdogs in the legacy media would have you believe that more laws would have prevented this senseless tragedy, as if laws prohibiting murder were not stringent enough, and that we need to do something, which always results in them gaining more political power at the cost of our civil rights.

We have seen this do something strategy many times before. They use it because it works. It worked in Florida after another senseless mass murder. It resulted in the Parkland Bill – the most sweeping piece of anti-gun legislation every seen in the Sunshine State, which was signed by a Republican governor who had previously signed more pro-gun bills into law in just one term in office than any other governor had in two. The law is still violating the civil rights of Floridians across the state by denying due process through its Red Flag component and by stripping 18-20-year-olds of their right to keep and bear arms. The most important thing the Parkland Bill taught us was that we cannot trust any politician, regardless of how Second Amendment friendly they have behaved in the past.

Sadly, by forcing the public to focus on the gun itself, the real culprits are escaping scrutiny. The deranged madman – may he rot in hell – could not possibly have taken so many innocent lives were it not for the inexplicable actions of a senior Uvalde police official, who prevented tactical teams from doing their job, in this case breaching the classroom door and shooting the madman in the face. While the Department of Justice is conducting an after-action review at the behest of the Uvalde mayor, which will likely hold this idiotic police official accountable, the DOJ review will take months. We need accountability now, so nothing like this can ever happen again. Similarly, tactical team commanders across the country need to know that if they’re ever ordered to stand down and wait while children are being murdered, they can butt-stroke whoever is stupid enough to issue such an obviously illegal order, make entry, shoot the bad guy in the face and the public will have their backs. In fact, their actions will be celebrated.

All of the post-Uvalde blood-dancing – from the White House down to the local level – has stopped any real discussion on how another mass murder can be prevented from happening at yet another school. The Biden-Harris administration would rather fix the blame on an inanimate object than fix the problem, because if the problem is fixed, they cannot exploit it in the future. They would rather infringe upon our civil rights than discuss strategies that can work, such as Florida’s School Guardian program, which put highly trained security officers into public schools, whose sole purpose is shooting anyone who tries to harm their kids. Some school districts allow teachers and staff to serve as guardians in addition to their other duties. Regardless, they all stand ready to meet deadly force with deadly force. The Guardian program was the only component of the Parkland bill that made sense.

There is no doubt that the media will continue to exploit this tragedy, but don’t buy into their narrative. Neither the gun nor the gun maker or any gun group is responsible for this tragedy, despite the zany rhetoric Joe Biden has been pre-programmed to read off of his teleprompter. Your civil rights should be as inviolate now as they were before, but it is clear it will require even more vigilance to keep them safeguarded, because the politicians, the gun banners and the media have become experts in applying their do something pressure.

Pray for the victims and remain vigilant, friends.

Biden can’t string two words together let alone disarming the criminal element. The next best thing? Disarm the law abiding, it’s so much easier.

But we all know it isn’t Joe who’s setting the narrative, it’s some other idiot behind the teleprompter.

Gun control is not intended to prevent crime or victims, but to establish a government monopoly on violence, and ensure the public is unable to depose authoritarian rulers.

It’s called job security.

To all those that want socialism and a marxist way of life under the current democratic party in power. I have always said education is the way to enrich the lives of the stupid. I the media would show what the real mass murders did in history and the policies they supported the democratic socialist party would be run down and stopped forever. Mass killing is still the way a lot of governments do business. Stalin had nearly a million of his own citizens executed, beginning in the 1930s. Millions more fell victim to forced labor, deportation, famine, massacres, and… Read more »

Joe Biden has not come in years, he follows and does what he is told he is mentally challenged by more than one medical issue. Who is running the country ? not Joe , Not the Hoe , maybe Nancey , maybe Obama , maybe Hillary, but for sure Not Joe Biden .

My guess the communist party the chinese government has total control over all of the above.

Only because they sold out to get rich and powerful. Their greed is destroying our country,

I would disagree about Piglosi. Her husband gets busted for a DUI after wrecking his Porsche in an accident that was HIS fault, and they won’t release his mug shot because he is married to a ‘famous’ and notorious leader of the house that caused the impeachment of Trump twice, to no avail. Talk about a ‘not for we’, but only for ‘them’.

My guess as to who is running the country, the cabal of Susan Rice, Valeri Jarrett, and Ovomit from his basement.

There’s a thing called “The Politician’s Syllogism”. It goes like this: We must do something. This is something. Therefore, we must to do this. Notice there is no connection between the “something” in the second line, and the need to do “something” in the first. That’s why its also called the “Politicians Fallacy.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politician%27s_syllogism If you read the above linked Wiki, you’ll note that the “Politician’s Syllogism” originated in a British political satire. But that didn’t stop it from actually being used in debate in Commons. It’s roots in comedy should remind us of the business plan followed by a… Read more »

Yes and watch your 401K. That is going to be changing soon because of what obiden is doing and you will be donating to political opposition and organizations that support BLM and climate change giving you less money to buy ammo or guns and it is all beyond your control.

A perfect example of why citizens and teachers should have been armed. The police can’t be everywhere and if they are here’s and example of their inability to engage at a crucial time and save children’s lives. A teacher, administrator, custodian, school bus driver or lunch lady being armed could have saved numerous lives. Ban gun free zones

While I myself doubt his agenda will get very far, I’m still gonna contact my politicritters in the senate and house of representatives just to be safe.

The Moral of the StoryLet’s stop allowing evil political dictators to take office. And if we do have someone bad in office we can find ways to get them out of office Joe has to go so do the evil poticaltions in washington who are sell our country to the communist. Here are some of the worst If those in a our country only paid attention while in history class Yakubu Gowon (1.1M deaths)Mengistu Haile Mariam (400K–1.5M deaths)Ismail Enver Pasha (2.5M deaths)Hideki Tojo (5M deaths)Leopold II of Belgium (2-15M deaths)Adolf Hitler (17M deaths)Jozef Stalin (23M deaths)Mao Zedong (49-78M deaths) Kim… Read more »

You can tell “Slippers” Biden is an complete idiot and his puppet masters are, too! He parrots the idea that the 9mm Parabellum is a high powered bullet that will blow your lungs out! Experts know, that’s it’s a round that is designed to wound, not kill!

musicman44mag

Yes but he likes the 22 caliber round because it doesn’t do as much damage so that means in the back of that empty void between his ears he supports AR15’s because they are 22 caliber.

What a moron, FJB

Finnky

Makes me wonder whether he inverted the tale in his mind. After all there is no way a 22 caliber round (223/556) could possibly be more powerful than a 9mm (357 caliber?). After all the 9mm is bigger across and about twice as heavy. In reality a 9mm luger is likely to lodge inside a bad guy – making them your safe backstop. A 22 (223) can pass through someone, depending on range, bullet, etc. That 22 will do much more damage than the “evil 9mm” – though I don’t see it blowing anyone’s lung out.

Amendment II – Bill of Rights – United States Constitution: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. ‘A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State..’ What does this mean?

Time to remove the current Government and their anti-gun & Marxist policies. Even if this goes down to a physical war, we are domed as a nation of free people. Everything the left is doing is to erode our freedom to get a one world order! Flooding of illegal immigrants, closing down our energy independence, time for this government to go!!!!

When they show up on my doorstep,, things will not go well for them. I just hope that they tell their wives and children how much they loved them first.

I’ve often thought this may be the match that starts the fire; once blood is shed by several officers/deputies/troopers taking rounds in the face and citizens being shot on their doorsteps.

Here is a conspiracy theory for you to ponder. Is it just me, or does it seem like all of these shooting tragedies seem to be awful convenient in the time of anti gun legislation. Every time an AR-15 ban is mentioned or high capacity magazine ban is mentioned. all of a sudden there is a shooting, and it just so happens that the person is using what is trying to be banned. Take this most recent shooting in Texas for example. May he burn in hell, but He didn’t just use any off the shelf AR-15 he used a… Read more »

The very same questions I’ve had ever since this tragedy occurred. There’s No reasonable explanation for how a Part Time Fast Food Worker could manage these purchases. I don’t buy the “He saved up for them” answer.

I am afeared our Republic will not make it to the midterms this year. If it does and the House is not controlled by the Republicans when it’s over, we are in for a nasty state of affairs.

And it is going to get worse. Crude went up to $120.38 per barrel, at the market close. Guests on FBN are predicting $150 per barrel soon.

Yeah, our Commie Gov. Insley has been preparing us for possible 10 bucks per gallon. He won’t even consider an emergency measure to cut some of the state taxes on our gasoline, which are some of the highest in the land. This is going to come to a head shortly, I am sure. Maybe that is what is supposed to happen.

While we were distracted by Bump Stock bans and mean tweets, the Marxists Democrats and Rhinos took control of our government and now we are minutes away from losing everything we have fought and died for to keep our freedoms intact. Don’t make the same mistake again in 2022 and 2024 elections. We were warned!

Truth: Joe Biden is not coming for anyone’s guns.

You are a former police officer – you know who will come for the guns. It’s the same people who have been taking guns for over 100 years.

Don’t make another mistake, vote Republican and vote out all RINOS.

Those who hadn’t voted for him spoke up in support of my comment. Also inquired as I paid, “Where is the button for Slo Joe to pay for the higher price?” They would say that there isn’t one.

Have we forgotten that anything that thwarts our right to bear arms, is an unconstitutional infringment upon our 2nd Amendment? If we really do have any faith in this Conservative majority or the integrity of the SCOTUS, then much of anything Biden can do will be rendered unconstitutional. I want to be convinced that politics will not work, before we consider violence as a means to an end. I hear a lot of tough rhetoric, but very few of you are willing to give up cushy lives for two more rounds in your mags. It may be wise to stock… Read more »

Shame on anyone who reflexively votes for the same fools every time, R or D. How is it everyone hates the politicians, but we re-elect the incumbents 95% of the time? If 95% were kicked out every time maybe they would start uprooting some of the deep state.

Liz won’t make it even though she is outspending her main opponent 6:1 and she has the establishment behind her.

Why? Activists interviewed her opponents, selected one, and are now working hard to get the vote out during the primary.

Big diff between primaries & generals, and between voting & activism. Voting alone does NOT fulfill one’s civic duty while we’re losing the USA to treason from within. Those who don’t donate, volunteer & organize to win primaries & purge traitors from the R party are in dereliction of citizenship. NO such thing as a pro-gun D. For 1 thing, they ALL voted for gun grabber Ketanji. They ALL endorse Biden, Clinton & Obama. There ARE pro-gun Rs. The only hope of saving the USA is to get control of the R party.
