Liberal Progressive bloggers exploit tragedy for political gain

To surmise, a tragic event took place in Florida; where a man, who had too much to drink, shot a woman in the forehead and she died. The original story is here. Here is the video report:

Well, the classless and uncouth progressive left is now exploiting this tragic event, for all it is worth for political reasons. Check out what the sleazeball leftist troll site, “Americans Against the Tea Party” wrote about this:

UNAPPROVED TITLE

Just another “responsible gun owner™!”

[.....]

It is unknown what his defense will be, if any. However, as this is Florida…all he really needs to do is say he felt threatened when she slapped him

Liberaland, which is owned by Fox News’s Alan Colmes covered it too; but without the idiotic and stupid snark.  But, just the same, the reason Colmes reported it, is because every time that there is some sort of accident involving a gun or a crime involving a gun; the liberal left just loves to link these stories and holler, “Lookie lookie lookie, another GUN crime; we need to outlaw them and get rid of the NRA!”

It is classless, it is uncouth, it is cynical and it is toxic. This mentality is precisely why I stopped voting for the Democrats. This mentality is not that of a fringe group; it is, in fact, the depraved mentality of 90% of the people in the Democratic Party anymore.  This is an Anti-Gun, Anti-White, Anti-Christian, Anti-Capitalism and Anti-American mentality. The Democrats mentality is, “Never let a crisis go to waste” or “Always exploit to make a political point.”

The truth is that the only real thing that is responsible for the shooting of Jamie Lee Martin is Elliott William Orsborn. Mr. Orsborn chose to possess a firearm, despite the fact that he had been convicted of a felony. Mr. Orsborn chose to carry his firearm, despite the fact that he was intoxicated. So, the blame lies with him; not the NRA, not Guns, and certainly not the Tea Party and its supporters. Of course, normal, clear minded people know these simple things. But, the left, who collectively have the minds of 2 year olds for the most part; do not understand such things.

Which is why I will NOT vote for them any longer. Because, quite frankly, stupid people should not be allowed to govern anything — much less be allowed to drive or run a computer.

Oops

Ouch!

FREMONT TOWNSHIP, MI — A 51-year-old woman accidentally shot herself in the face after she slammed the butt end of a shotgun on the floor, causing it to discharge, the Tuscola County Sheriff’s Department reports. 

Deputies were called about 10 a.m. Monday, July 14, to a house on Waterman in Fremont Township for a report of a gunshot victim. 

Upon arrival, deputies found that a family dispute had taken place and the victim, a 51-year-old woman, told officers that she had taken a shotgun out to “make a point.” 

She told police she slammed the butt end on the floor, the gun discharged, and she was shot in the face. 

FlightCare transported the victim to St. Mary’s of Michigan in Saginaw, and she is expected to recover, police said. The complaint remains under investigation. 

The Mayville Police Department, the Mayville Fire Department and a Mobile Medical Response ambulance crew and Mayville ambulance crew assisted the sheriff’s department.

I wonder what her point was? ;) :P :D

Crazy!: NRA gets of a leaked DOJ memo that says Outlaw and Confiscate All Guns…

I will not link to Infowars directly, because of some stupid ad that pops up over there. Anyhow, this is frightening thing; that PDF is downloaded here. (Requires Adobe acrobat reader)

I have said this before, and I will say it again: Elections matter and voting for someone, who does not hold your values is not a smart idea. You libertarians that voted for this President; this is on you all. Nothing like this would have ever been considered, if John McCain or Mitt Romney would have been elected.  McCain and Romney would have not been perfect; even for a paleoconservative like me — but it would have been a good deal better than this liberal we have in there now.

Again, elections matter — this is proof of that.

The Story:

The National Rifle Association has obtained a Department of Justice memo calling for national gun registration and confiscation. The nine page “cursory summary” on current gun control initiatives was not officially released by the Obama administration.

The DOJ memo (downloadable here as a PDF) states the administration “believes that a gun ban will not work without mandatory gun confiscation,” according to the NRA, and thinks universal background checks “won’t work without requiring national gun registration.” Obama has yet to publicly support national registration or firearms confiscation, although the memo reveals his administration is moving in that direction.

The memo stands in stark contrast to the administration’s public stance on so-called gun control. White House spokesman Jay Carney said last month that laws proposed by Obama would not “take away a gun from a single law-abiding American.”

This right here is why the GOP should fight Hillary tooth and nail come 2016

I saw this over at Hotair.com and honestly, I was gobsmacked. :shock: If the GOP does not fight this crazy woman tooth and nail from now until 2016; and we lose this next election, there are going to be some seriously pissed off people in America. Namely, Gun owners.

This quote comes from Time Magazine, and comes via Mary Katharine Ham — this is Hillary Clinton describing her opponents:

We cannot let a minority of people, and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” Clinton said during a live CNN town hall.

Wow…. just…wow. MKH over at HotAir.com breaks this down in a big way, and I might be excessively quoting here a bit…; but, my friends, this one is warranted in a big way:

“We,” said the aspiring head of the federal government,
“cannot let”—As in, “allow.” What remedy, pray tell, does she have in mind for this outrageous epidemic in free thought?
“a minority of people”—The minority, the protection of whose rights Thomas Jefferson called a “sacred principle” in his First Inaugural Address and whose endangerment at the hands of a tyrannical majority James Madison called the Republic’s “great danger?”
“and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people”— Regardless of the truth of this dubious assertion, she seems to repeat it to justify her advocacy for the prohibition of the minority’s dissent, which makes it sound like someone never glanced at a Founding document. “Screw ‘em, majority rules,” the working draft of the Constitution proclaimed.
“hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority.”— Let me see if I can rephrase the idea of a “viewpoint that terrorizes the majority” in such a way that a longtime Democratic politician might understand it. There’s an old adage originally used to describe journalism and oft repeated by the activist Left to give itself airs— “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”

Hillary Clinton and liberal activists are the comfortable. They require a “safe place” where the presence of others who deign to disagree cannot “trigger” them. Your mere opposition to an asinine limit on mag capacity, which was a demonstrable disaster in incompetent governance in her home state of New York, rises to the level of “terrorizing” for a woman who famously couldn’t figure out if that term applied to anyone involved in Benghazi. But for you, law-abiding citizen, not a problem.

Much of the Left desires that criticisms of gun control policies be banished from the public square. Espousing them is abetting child murder, in their eyes, no matter how much evidence or what arguments Second Amendment activists marshal. Hearing this argument from fellow citizens who call themselves liberal is disappointing.

Hearing it from a potential presidential candidate is creepy. Especially one who’d be taking the reins from an administration that flagrantly uses the power of the federal government to get people it doesn’t like to stop saying things of which it does not approve.

Hopefully, the guys over at HotAir do not mind me quoting that one to death. My friends, let me blunt here; this is not your boilerplate blue-collar Democrat party stuff, not at least from where I sit. This is actually neoliberal Marxism. This is right in line with communist repression of freedom of thought. This is the kind of stuff that turned me against the left. My jaw almost hit the floor when I saw this one. :shock:

This right here, should be used by the GOP against Hillary should she decide to run. They should not give her a pass on this one at all. This is anti-Americanism at its most lethal form. This is the same mentality that pushed Bill Clinton to tell Janet Reno to send the tanks in at Waco many years ago. That somehow those that disagree with you are somehow a threat. This stuff is quite scary; and can have some dangerous fallout to those who happen to support their first and second amendment rights.

I always knew that the Clinton’s were pretty brutal, when it came to politics; just did not think that they were this brutal. I think it goes without saying that, at this point, I am not ready for Hillary; and if the rest of the America has any sense, neither will they be either.

Video: Two suspects shoot two police officers in Las Vegas and say, “The Revolution has begun”

Now, I do not intend this to be some idiotic partisan blog posting. However, I do wonder, what kind of revolution that these two suspects were referring to.

8 News NOW

The story via 8 News Now out of Las Vegas:

LAS VEGAS — Two Metro officers are dead following a shooting at a pizza restaurant Sunday near Nellis Boulevard and Stewart Avenue. Police say a citizen and both suspects are dead, as well.

According to police, a man and woman walked into a Cici Pizza restaurant at 309 North Nellis around 11:22 a.m. and appeared to target two Metro officers who were eating at the restaurant. One person shot one officer in the head. The second person shot the second officer.

Police say witnesses told them the suspects took the police officers’ guns and ammunition and, as they were walking out of the restaurant after the shooting, they said, ” tell the police the revolution has begun.”

The two suspects then left the restaurant and went into the Wal-Mart store across the street where they shot a citizen and then shot themselves, police said. Both suspects are dead.

Metro Police has asked all of its officers to shroud their badges in honor of their fallen co-workers. They are also having officers double up in their squad cars so no officer is riding alone.

 

Here’s the part that bothers me the most:

Police say witnesses told them the suspects took the police officers’ guns and ammunition and, as they were walking out of the restaurant after the shooting, they said, ” tell the police the revolution has begun.”

First off, the media did not comment on the race of the suspects. Was it white suspects? Was it black suspects? Was it latino suspects? Update: Suspects race now know, see below! What sort of revolution were they referring to? These questions are what people like me, want to know. The one thing that I should point out; the suspects killed themselves. Which in my humble opinion, makes them cowards. No true revolutionary, of any stripe, takes the cowardly way out and kills themselves to escape justice. True revolutionaries stand up for what they believe in and will go to jail and face up for their actions.

I am of the opinion, that these guys were nothing more than wanna-be revolutionaries of some sort and they did not plan on the police coming as quick as they did; and when they realized that they had bitten off more than they could chew, they took the cowards way out. Either that, or these people were not wrapped too tight and did this to make some sort of a statement.

Also too, and I think this is very important. Despite what some in the media might try to paint these idiots as; these guys were not Ron Paul types. Ron Paul’s revolution was never, ever about violence. Ron Paul’s revolution was a peaceful one; and he never advocated any sort of violence at all.  Neither would any sort of a Conservative either.

People like myself, who are sane; who are not happy with our Government. We resolve to change it and the culture through civil discourse and by a peaceful exchange of ideas. We also, via blogs so forth, point out and expose the extremists who wish to tarnish our movement and the extremists on the other side, who wish to harm those whom they disagree with.

Also,I want to make it absolutely clear that I do not endorse, nor do I believe in, any sort of violence to fight back against Cultural Marxism. It is wrong, it puts us on the same level has the extremists on the left; and we as Conservative Christians are better than that.

We have the truth on our side, and we do not need to resort to such foolish tactics.

Update:Via Yahoo News

The male shooter, described as a tall white man, yelled “everyone get out” before shooting, Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill.

Terrible, just terrible. :(

Update #2: Some special snowflake left a moronic comment about this posting, and I deleted it, and then responded to it here.

This is stupid and does nothing for the second amendment cause

I’m with SayUncle on this one here; this is just plain stupid:

It would be an understatement to say that the tactics of gun rights activists have been backfiring of late. The showdown has taken place foremost in Texas, where in recent months groups such as Open Carry Texas have conducted provocative demonstrations in which armed men exercise their right under state law to carry semi-automatic rilfes in public. No fewer than five national food and beverage chains have now told them to get rid of their guns or get lost, including Starbucks, Wendy’s, Applebees, Jack In The Box, and Chipotle.

And now Chili’s and Sonic have effectively joined the list: Two videos posted on YouTube on May 19 by the San Antonio chapter of Open Carry Texas—since removed from public view but obtained by Mother Jones—show its armed members being refused service at both restaurants. The two companies have not made official statements on open carry but have since indicated that they are reviewing their policies. From the nervous and angry reactions of some patrons to comments from some of the gun activists themselves, it’s not difficult to see why these spectacles haven’t been winning many people over.

“I just wish I had my kids in there when that one dumb chick come up and started rattin’ her mouth,” said one of the gun activists.

When a young woman approaches the group in Chili’s and expresses her dismay, a guy with an assault rifle strapped across his back offers her a flier. “Um actually, there’s children here,” she replies, “and you’re a dumbass.” As she walks away one member of the group comments mockingly, “Yes, I’m a dumbass,” and then says of her, “must be Moms Demand Action,” referring to the national gun-reform group.

via Gun Activists Flaunting Assault Rifles Get Booted From Chili’s and Sonic | Mother Jones.

Again, I am all for the second amendment. I am also for being able to carry a gun; in public, within the confines of the law. However, carrying an AR-15 or any other sort of a assault rifle into a public place does nothing more than cause panic and makes law-abiding gun owners look like idiots.

The idea is to convince the public that not everyone who carries a gun is some sort of mental unstable whack-jobs. This here, does nothing to further that cause; in fact, it does the opposite.

Just my opinion.

Update: Julie in Pa gives her take on it, and it is spot on.

 

The only person responsible for the UCSB shooting is Elliot Rodger

As I am sure you already know; some deranged nut job named Elliot Rodger opened fire in a neighborhood out in Isla Vista, California near UCSB. Basically, because he couldn’t get laid.

Well, the blame game is starting; in fact, one of the victim’s Father went on an idiotic tirade against the NRA and basically Republicans. Well, there is only one problem with that; and thanks to twitchy for pointing this out:

So, the dude was legally registered; so much for this being the NRA’s fault. In fact, the NRA has called for mental health records to be a part of a firearms background check for licenses. Which some people actually argued against; funny that. :roll:

I also see where the so-called “Men’s Rights Movement” or him being “incel” is being blamed. Please note, “incel” is the cool kid crowd’s term for involuntary celibacy or in layman’s terms; couldn’t get laid in a monkey whore house with a bucket full of bananas! Something I know quite a bit about. Just being honest, there are not any babes beating my doors down guys. :( But, you don’t see me going around shooting people, ain’t no poo tang or lack thereof, worth committing murder. :shock:

Let me be clear:

People just need to stop!

The only person that is responsible for this horrible tragic event is the man who pulled the trigger of that legally registered gun; and that would be Elliot Rodger and only Elliot Rodger! Anyone who blames the NRA, The media, the politicians in Washington D.C. or anyone else is missing the point. How about blaming the inept police in Santa Barbara, California who did nothing at all to follow-up, when the shooters Father spoke to the police about some of his kid’s videos on youtube?

Blaming guns for a mass shooting like this; is like blaming automobiles for auto accidents. Do we just ban all cars? How about placing the blame where it belongs; on the person who actually did it!

Just my opinion.

Update: Now a memeorandum topic.

Update #2: Oh, this is good — really good. 

 

LOCAL NEWS: Detroit homeowner fatally shoots 2 suspected home invaders

More homeowners in Detroit are finally discovering that guns stop crime cold.

The Story:

Detroit — A homeowner on Tuesday fatally shot two men who’d broken into his west-side house — the latest in a string of self-defense shootings this year.

The incident happened on the 14800 block of Dexter, Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody said, although further details were not immediately available.

“Investigators are on the scene as we speak gathering information,” Woody said.

Pastor Barak Holmes of Diverse Deliveren stared across the street from the scene, where the two bodies of the suspected home invaders laid behind a pickup.

“I was sitting in my office, and I heard four shots, and I didn’t think much of it,” Holmes said. “It’s horrific what’s going on in the city, where people have to defend their homes with guns. We have to pray for our city.”

via Detroit homeowner fatally shoots 2 suspected home invaders | The Detroit News.

This is why Detroit homeowners are having to do this:

There have been several home invaders shot or fired upon in recent weeks, and the city has had at least 10 justifiable homicides in 2014.

Detroit has traditionally had a large percentage of the nation’s justifiable homicides by citizens. In 2012, for instance, the last year for which national figures are available, there were 25 justifiable homicides in Detroit, which made up 8 percent of the 310 seen nationwide. Last year, there were 15 justifiable homicides in the city.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig said at a press conference last week that in his 37-year career, he’s never seen as many homeowners defending themselves by shooting intruders. Craig told The News in January he felt the crime rate could be lowered if more “good Americans” were armed, because he said criminals would think twice about attacking them.

“It does appear more and more Detroiters are becoming empowered,” Craig said. “More and more Detroiters are getting sick of the violence. I know of no other place where I’ve seen this number of justifiable homicides.”

It is a simple, undeniable fact: Guns stop crime. Period, end of discussion.

A list of recent examples of this:

■On March 7, a woman in her 50s shot and killed a man trying to break into her home in the 22000 block of Grove Street. She heard noises at her rear window and shot the intruder in the chest.

■On Feb. 22, two home invaders were killed: At 2 a.m., two men broke into a house on the city’s southwest side; the homeowner shot both men. A 21-year-old man died and the other man escaped.

■Earlier on Feb. 22, at 12:30 a.m., a woman who was surprised by a gunman when she pulled her car into the garage was able to reach for her own gun and fatally shoot the man.

■A woman on Feb. 17 opened fire on three teens who kicked in her door. The alleged intruders, ages 14, 14 and 15, were caught by police, and charged with home invasion.

I wonder what people like Dianne Feinstein would say about this?

Exit Quote:

“People who are faced with a dangerous situation are taking matters into their own hands,” Craig said. “We’re not advocating violence; we’re advocates of not being victims. We’re advocates of self-protection. We want people to be safe.

“This should be a message to those who continue to perpetuate violence on Detroiters that enough is enough. You’ve got to be concerned about good Detroiters who aren’t going to stand for it,” Craig said.

“Detroiters are fed up and they are taking action.”

Good for them; Americans have a God-given right to protect themselves against criminals. People like Democrat Dianne Feinstein want to take this right away from you as an American citizen — remember this come 2014 and 2016, and vote accordingly.

Video: Local Story: Home invaders pick the wrong house

The Video:

The Story via WXYZ-TV:

(WXYZ) – A Detroit mother opened fire Monday night when three suspects broke into her home.

Surveillance cameras caught it all.

The mother tells 7 Action News she “didn’t have time to get scared.” When she heard the door to her home on Woodrow Wilson being kicked in, she immediately warned the three teenage intruders and then opened fire.

UPDATE: Detroit Police Chief reacts, says, “She did the right thing.”

One of the teens dropped a handgun on his way out the door. He then tried to get back inside the house a second time, but was again met with gunfire. Once again, he took off and all three were arrested shortly after the incident by Detroit Police.

Recalling the panic she felt, the mom says “I let them know I had a gun once they were in the house. They said no you don’t so I shot off the first round. I wasn’t feeling anything at the moment, I got scared afterwards.”

The Detroit Police chief? He’s cool with it.

The Story via WXYZ-TV:

(WXYZ) – It’s the video creating a national stir as it goes viral.

Seen first on 7 Action News at 11 , a mother from Detroit opening fire on three teenage burglars inside her home.

Now Detroit’s Chief of Police is responding to the dramatic footage and the mother’s actions.

“She did the right thing” says Chief James Craig acknowledging the mother gave a verbal warning prior to firing the weapon.

As we first reported, the mother was protecting two small children inside the home.

She tells us “I let them know I had a gun once they were in the house. They said no you don’t so I shot off the first round.” Her husband is thankful she and the kids are safe.

He gave her the weapon just two weeks ago and showed her how to use it.

“If I hadn’t prepared my wife for this kind of situation, I could have came home to a family that was gone,” he says.

I wonder what liberals like Diane Feinstein would say about this little situation? :roll:
