Common Threads in Mass Murders

As I contemplate the horror in Las Vegas I wonder; is it only tragedy that unites us. Or is it a tragedy that we are divided?

I also wonder why an important common thread always seems to be missing from every story examining the reasons for these evil acts?

What is that common thread? Is it a political affiliation? Is it a nationality? Is it a certain type of weapon? No. None of these is the common thread.

Was Las Vegas shooter “radicalized”?

Las Vegas authorities now acknowledge mass murderer Stephen Paddock may have been “radicalized” before his bloody rampage Sunday at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival but they won’t say what species of radicalism the shooter may have embraced.

The deadliest mass shooting in modern American history has been cravenly transformed into anti-American propaganda by the Left, as Democrat commentators race to ghoulishly disparage white men, gun rights and the NRA, Republicans, and President Trump, blaming them for what otherwise looks like a Muslim terrorist atrocity. Islamic State continues to claim responsibility for the massacre. The terrorist group also claims Paddock converted to Islam six months ago and refers to him by a nom de guerre, Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki. In Las Vegas Wednesday FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse said, “We have found no evidence to this point to indicate terrorism, but this is an ongoing investigation. We’re going to look at all avenues, not close any.”


JOINT STATEMENT FROM SAF,  CCRKBA ON ‘BUMP STOCKS’

BELLEVUE, WA – In response to the senseless attack in Las Vegas, the Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms have issued the following statement:

“The Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms support a productive dialogue concerning “bump stocks,” National Concealed Carry Reciprocity and the proposed Hearing Protection Act.

“We recognize that banning firearms accessories is not a solution to violent crime.”

America loses its security virginity in Las Vegas

Israel has a love for everything American. We enjoy your movies, TV series, fast food, country music, New York, Los Angeles, Florida, and your wide open spaces We even enjoy your innocence when it comes to your domestic freedoms.

For Israelis, it has become a part of everyday life to walk through body scanners several times a day. For us, this isn’t confined to an airport experience. They are all over the place. You can’t go to a shopping mall, entertainment center, train station, bank, sporting event, supermarket, without having yourself and your bag searched. It doesn’t upset us. We know that it keeps us safe. It’s become an essential part of our daily routine. So we envy the open freedom of America that doesn’t need all this. Until Las Vegas. Then things changed.

Nancy Sinatra hates guns so much she wants to shoot NRA members

Lately, it feels like celebrity stupidity has hit a fever pitch.  We’ve seen flare-ups of lunacy regarding the environment, healthcare, illegal immigration and, of course, Hillary’s catastrophic failure. However, nothing seems to get them wound up like gun control.

If you really want to see a d-lister get all foamy mouthed about an issue, all you have to do is seek out their feelings on the 2nd Amendment.

Shots fired at the Vegas Bellagio on the same night as the concert shooting?

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)

Yesterday, I posted a video reporting shots fired through the front door of the Vegas Bellagio Hotel on the night of the concert attack.

My, my. YouTube took the video down. We found a new link. Don’t know how long it’ll work.

D.C. Declines to Take Wrenn CCW Case to SCOTUS

Apparently fearing a devastating loss that could crush arbitrary concealed carry laws in a handful of states, the District of Columbia has declined to appeal its loss of a concealed carry case that struck down its “needs based” permit requirement, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) learned today.

The SAF case is Wrenn v. District of Columbia. A three-judge panel on the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down the city’s “good cause” requirement as unconstitutional in July. The court declined a request for an en banc panel review last month.

The Insanity of Gun Control

Gun Control is an insane and irrational concept that in reality, doesn’t exist. It is all about the seizure of rights from honest people because of the actions of criminals. That, is irrational.

Crime, has no relationship to the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment covers the right to own and carry any firearm without the government touching you. But it doesn’t give you the right to use a firearm anyway you want.

Let’s Have a Conversation about Gun Laws … to Expand the Second Amendment

For the past two months, I have encountered Brown Supremacist bigots and single-payer cult militants. They claim to have a discussion about these contentious issues, but invariably they incite arguments with name-calling, brow-beating, and shame-placing. Then they get angry when I call them out on their hateful tactics. Their retort? “You don’t want to have a conversation!” For the Left, there is no interest in discussion. They have neither the skill set nor the knowledge base for any meaningful conversation. Look no further than their social justice warrior godfather Saul Alinsky. His televised “debate” with William F. Buckley turned into shoddy attempts to focus on host’s mannerisms, habits, and motives.

Hey, Jimmy Kimmel: Here’s What the Founders Really Thought About Guns

With Jon Stewart off the air, it seems the left has found a new progressive comedian it can look to for all the big cultural and public policy debates.

After spending September lobbying on air to keep Obamacare, Jimmy Kimmel went on a rant this week on the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” TV show about the horrific mass shooting that took place in Las Vegas on Sunday. He made a fairly sweeping attack on widespread gun ownership in America and generally suggested that gun control will fix the problem of gun violence.

Statistics show gun control has little impact on decreasing crime and violence, but Kimmel chose to make his case by making jokes, saying “our forefathers wanted us to have AK-47s is the argument, I assume.”

Kimmel is suggesting that the Founders didn’t understand modern technology, and therefore, arguments about why they set out to defend gun rights in the Bill of Rights don’t apply to today.—More...

Scalise: Getting shot only ‘fortified’ his support of the 2nd Amendment

After House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R., La.) was shot during the assault on a Republican congressional baseball practice back in June, you could practically - and in some cases literally - hear the glee in left-wing voices.  The ghouls came out on Twitter and had a grand ol’ time chuckling about how the GOP had finally reaped what it had allegedly sewn. It was grotesque, but it’s something we’ve come to expect.

After the initial celebration died down, lefties started to suggest that maybe, finally, those who “bitterly cling” to their constitutional rights would learn their “lesson.”

So many unanswered questions. Did Las Vegas shooter have plans beyond the concert massacre?

It has been widely reported that searches of the car and one of the homes of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock yielded stores of ammonium nitrate and tannerite, ingredients used in homemade bombs.

It has also been reported that Paddock was a licensed pilot but I haven’t seen anyone provide any details of the airplanes he owned.

A Nexis search reveals that licensed pilot Stephen Craig Paddock, born April 1953, of 1372 Babbling Brook Ct., Mesquite, Nevada 89034, owned two airplanes, both of which were four-seat, fixed wing single engine aircraft. The first, a Bellanca Super Viking model 17-30A, tail number 28082, was registered in 2005. The second, a Cirrus SR20, tail number 5343M, was registered in 2007.


BLM and Liberal Press Bashing of American Cops Lead to Greater Gun Violence

The latest FBI report on gun violence in American cities, especially in specific liberal Democratic-controlled cities- discloses a very inconvenient truth. The relentless bashing and public criticism of urban cops by the activist BLM (Black Lives Matter), the liberal press+ liberal civic leaders have had the unintended consequence of producing a huge increase in black on black killings in certain visible minority cities.

To be specific, we are talking Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, Charlotte and Milwaukee.

Edmonton police investigate ‘acts of terrorism’ after officer stabbed, pedestrians run down

‘We are urging Edmontonians to be vigilant’

 

​A man who stabbed a police officer with a knife and deliberately plowed into pedestrians on Edmonton’s busiest downtown strip is being investigated for “acts of terrorism,” police said at a news conference early Sunday.

A 30-year-old man is in custody following a high-speed chase just before midnight through streets filled with bar patrons and football fans. The chase ended only after a white U-Haul van the man was driving struck four pedestrians and flipped on its side.—MORE…

FBI STATS DEMOLISH NFL PROTEST NARRATIVE

The Black Lives Matter fairy tale that police use black Americans for target practice took another hit as new FBI statistics showed the black homicide rate is skyrocketing and that cops had nothing to do with it.

Apart from the FBI data, four separate studies were published last year refuting the claim that police shootings are racially-biased, but facts often have little effect on committed left-wingers who hate America. Democrats, whose party officially endorsed the violent, subversive Black Lives Matter movement, won’t allow their bubbles to be burst by hard evidence, no matter how persuasive. 


Illegal aliens costing Americans $135 billion a year

Lefties often like to tell us what we could get for the billions that we spend on new military hardware. They’re less enthusiastic about telling us what we could get for the billions we spend on welfare or environmental projects or research grants that study alcoholism in lesbian mice. Or the $135 billion a year that illegal aliens cost us.

The swelling population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the the most authoritative report on the issue yet.


UNDERCOVER IN ANTIFA: Their Tactics and Media Support Exposed!

On Thursday, conservative commentator Steven Crowder released an undercover video (below) exposing the violence-embracing leftist movement Antifa. In the video, two undercover reporters are embedded with the “anti-fascist” lefitst group for a few weeks and capture on video Antifa members discussing the violent tactics they plan to use as well as weapons they plan to carry, including combat knives, AK-47s and other weapons, in order to disrupt an event featuring Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro.

Crowder begins the exposé by explaining that his team of reporters has been “infiltrating this organization for a long time, hard.” The result is evidence that is so damning that the authorities ended up thanking Crowder and his team for their work.—More…

D.C. COURT OF APPEALS DENIES EN BANC HEARING ON WRENN, A MAJOR WIN FOR SAF

The U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has turned down a request from the city for an en banc hearing on the concealed carry case of Wrenn v. District of Columbia, amounting to a strategic win for the Second Amendment Foundation.

According to the court, not a single judge on the court requested a hearing. Earlier, a three-judge panel had ruled in favor of plaintiffs Brian Wrenn and SAF. The case challenges the District’s carry permit policy that requires citizens to provide a “good reason” to be issued a permit. The Appeals Court struck down that requirement.

Oh my: Four arrested when fight breaks out at Berkeley ‘empathy tent’

I would say this is ironic, but that’s only true if don’t recognize the Orwellian nature of the language being used. Just as Antifa is about the most Fascist organization around, most campus “peace activists” are generally at war with just about everyone who doesn’t see the world the way they do.

Empathy is supposed to mean you can identify with the experience or perspective of another person, either because you’ve been there or because you are able to put yourself in their shoes in some way.

Sounds like that went a bit sideways here:

Construction of border wall prototypes gets underway

The Trump administration has begun building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, the signature promise the president made during his campaign for office.

Many commentators have opined that without the promise to build the wall and crack down on illegal immigration Donald Trump would never have beaten Democrat Hillary Clinton last November.

I’m one of them.
