Every so often we have a mass shooting in the United States ad within minutes the usual suspects are breaking their necks to call for more gun control. It never fails. The left never lets an opportunity go to waste. The Texas church shooting was no different.
Leading the calls for more gun control is the left leaning major media. Of course CNN leads the way when jumping on a mass shooting, you’ll find Don Lemon and his minions reporting misleading information in order to get its audience up in a frenzy on gun control.
The media spent all day after the attack rhetorically asking whether now was the time for more gun control. CNN’s Jim Acosta repeatedly asked if President Trump is, “Content . . . with these mass shootings exploding every month or so.”
If the media waited even a few hours, they would have learned that their calls for regulations — primarily for “universal” background checks — wouldn’t have stopped this attack. Indeed, their proposals wouldn’t have stopped any of the other mass public shootings in the last couple decades. Kelley bought a gun at a gun store, and he passed the background check that the store conducted on him. Lying on the form doesn’t help you evade the computer background check.
Of course you’ll also find the democrats jumping all over the opportunity. Democratic Senators such as Dick Durbin (Ill.), Richard Blumenthal (Conn.), Bob Casey (Pa.), Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), and Kamala Harris (Calif.) all immediately made statements that were various versions of, “Congress must act.”
One has to look in only one place to see that more gun control isn’t the answer, Chicago. Chicago has some of the most strict gun laws in America, yet they lead all of the country in gun related murders. Why doesn’t Obama care about Chicago?
CNN calls Texas gun laws relaxed. Relaxed? I own 8 firearms. I had to go through 8 federal background checks before I was allowed to purchase each firearm. Nothing relaxed about that. What is needed in Texas is free and open carry. Thank God for the citizen who confronted the mass murderer and ultimately ended the shooting. If some of those church goers had a firearm on them at the time, less lives would have been lost.
Gun control is not about stopping the mass shootings. It’s about disarming its citizens. A disarmed citizen is much easier to control. The 2nd Amendment is a fundamental right of every citizen to bear arms. We should not let the government or a bunch of snowflakes disarm us. They will nit pick our gun rights apart, piece by piece. First it’ll be bump stocks, then it will be magazine capacities, then it’ll be AR-15’s and so on. Don’t give them anything. This is worth fighting for.
This is a fight we should be willing to go to war over.
