27 people were killed yesterday, 24 injured, around 11.30 am, in a Sutherland Springs, Texas, church on a Sunday morning. The killer was identified as Devin Patrick Kelly from Braunfels, Texas, who was given a dishonorable discharge and a court martial in 2014. He was permanently banned from owning a gun. The ANTIFA connection will not be mentioned by The lame stream media. He was reportedly killed after a chase, the details of which are a little sketchy to say the least.
Before the bodies were cold, predictably Liberals were jumping on the #GunControl bandwagon. It is as if they forget that many of the previous shootings were perpetrated by Democrats with ANTIFA connections.
Will Wheaton who played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek, The Next Generation, and very little else was one of the first. He slammed Speaker Paul Ryan for offering Prayers over legislation changes.
MSNBC’s very own Black Supremacist Joy Ann Reid chimed in with her usual inability to gauge the facts on their own merits, rather to politicized blindly. This woman could turn a debate about a ham sandwich into a race row. The bread was white, that’s racist. At least it got her mind off trashing President Trump for a while, which is her favorite pastime.
John Fugelsang, Sirius Radio Host in typical Liberal Fashion, tweets in rhymes, like the Joker from Batman. Riddle me this and riddle me that, some folks got shot, lets blame responsible gun owners for that. He often suggests others should do something, yet never specifies exactly what. Disagreeing is not demonizing John, no matter how much you try to paint it as such.
Outspoken British TV Presented Piers Morgan is known for his ant gun stance. His inability to grasp that the issue is one of illegal gun ownership, rather than gun ownership in general, is annoying. His pen chant for sensationalizing issues for a story is unprofessional to say the least. If he is so vehemently anti 2nd amendment, he should stay in the UK. Another example of someone in the public eye suggesting changes, but failing to clarify exactly what.
I always have to ask how many of these people will be giving up their armed guards in order to make a difference? Surely the first step has to be to enforce the current gun laws in an attempt to stop mass shootings. The left has an all or nothing ideology of a total repeal of the 2nd Amendment, but this is folly. We have had this right from back before any of us can remember.
The main conversation no one wants to enter into is one of Mental Health and Gun Ownership. There is no way this individual could be classified in any other way but Mentally Ill, yet some would say those who are, should be allowed to own a gun. Lets not forget that this individual was banned from owning a gun, so laws in place only ever cover LEGAL gun ownership. The issue each time comes back to illegal guns.
Whether you want to hear it or not YES one responsible gun owner can reduce the carnage in a mass shooting and clearly in this case did. Wait for the facts before you make a judgment on this. No matter what sanctimonious. minor celebrities may tell you, prayer really does help and can move mountains. Don’t be drawn into the blame game, as no one will ever agree. Finally, see the ideologies and individual clearly designed to divide. You are better than that!!
