I hate to break into my series on the Lincoln assassination, but these recent events need to be dealt with or else the Second Amendment as we know it will be dead.
We’ve, all of us by now, heard about the shootings in El Paso and in Ohio and we’ve all heard that it’s all about “white supremacy” period! No other explanation need apply–the Deep State and its minions have declared that white supremacists are responsible for all the shootings in this country as far back as we can remember and so there is no need for rational debate or questions. So let’s just get these Red Flag laws passed (as a first step) and start taking the guns as quick as we can get away with it. After all, we don’t need “no stinkin’ Second Amendment” we can trust the feds to do the right thing–can’t we? Don’t all answer at once now or the silence will be deafening!
Anyone who truly believes this drivel has to have a few screws loose, and they ain’t in his power lawn mower.
If gun control would make everyone safe, then Chicago should be the safest city in the entire country–but for some strange reason that the cultural Marxists never quite get around to explaining, it isn’t. Anyone who really thinks the crooks, criminals, perverts, and others who cause these problems will now do their patriotic duty and line up to turn in their weapons has to be a candidate for the looney bin or a Marxist college professor.
And as far as all these shootings being a glaring example of “white supremacy” there was an interesting article on https://www.americanthinker.com by Colin Flaherty for July 30th. Mr. Flaherty noted: “Even before the final butcher’s bill was presented for the Sunday-night mass shooting in Gilroy, the blue checkers and talking heads were filling their platforms with fairy tales that most mass shooters are white. But in the two-week run-up to Gilroy, there were 36 other mass shootings from coast to coast–and 34 of those shooters were black. One was white and one Hispanic. These results echo a New York Times story from 2016 that stated, much to the surprise and chagrin of the reporters, that whenever there are three or more victims of gunfire, 75 percent of the shooters in America are black. Today, that number looks a bit generous to black sensibilities.”
And should you wonder about all these shootings, Mr. Flaherty lists 34 of them in his article, along with a video showing that several of the shooters were, indeed, black. How many of these shootings did any of you even hear about unless you lived in the immediate area where they were done? Had they been committed by white supremacists every one of them would have been front page news nationwide and the media pundits would have screamed themselves hoarse howling for the destruction of the Second Amendment! But because the vast majority of the shooters were black, the media and those who finance it, decided you didn’t need to be aware of all of them. In fact the less you were aware of them the better off the Establishment would be.
And now, after the tragedies in El Paso and Ohio, we have all manner of politicians, even including Trump (and many “never-Trumper” politicos) all calling for “Red Flag” laws where guns are concerned. Do most people even know what Red Flag laws really are? Red Flag gun seizure laws blatantly violate the First, Second, and Fifth Amendments.
These laws, if they get enacted (which they probably will) are supposed to stop mass shooters before they have a chance to wreak havoc on society. So, anyone the “system” now deems dangerous can now, with a judge’s order, have their guns seized before they have committed a crime! In other words, they now become guilty until proven innocent. This turns the American justice system on its head! Who would have believed, with Trump in office, widely promoting the idea that our Second Amendment is safe, we would see it eviscerated during his presidency, with him apparently supporting the evisceration! If he continues in this vein, he can kiss 2020 goodbye! Let’s hope he wakes up and smells the coffee, because if he doesn’t, he’s gone! And there may well be civil war in the streets, which the Deep State crowd would dearly love!
We need to ask the Lord to intervene and work to change this situation because man, left to his own devices will really screw it up. I have stated in the past that our War of Northern Aggression was really our French Revolution, and it was. If we end up with the Second Amendment being trashed, it could well be our Russian Revolution–and we all know how that turned out!
