Once again, the media tell us that we’re engaged in a “national debate” over how to stop mass shootings.  I only wish that were true.  I am adamantly in favor of a national debate.  I debated in school, and I know the rules for real debates: you have to present evidence for your side and argue for it rationally and logically.  I would love to see a debate that addresses the real root causes of these horrific acts of violence, which I’ve long written and talked about: the destruction of the family unit, the absence of fathers, the desensitization of kids to violence, the banishing of religion and moral teaching from the public square, undermining of respect for the sanctity of life, the way isolated social media relationships and coarse anonymous Internet sniping have replaced personal human contact in churches and community groups, the “war on boys” that tells young men they’re bad and useless just for being male, and on and on. 

I would even be willing to listen to suggestions for new gun laws, if they were effective at keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people, and not just the same regurgitated anti-Second Amendment leftist wish list of “common sense” gun laws that are anything but.  Those proposed laws invariably would have done nothing to stop the mass shootings, but they would disarm and criminalize law-abiding citizens while making it easier for criminals and deranged shooters to victimize us (like the insane “gun-free zone” concept – “I wanted to shoot a bunch of people, but the sign says this is a ‘gun-free zone.’ Darn it, I guess my killing spree is off!  I wouldn’t want to violate the sign!”)

All those things should be part of the constructive debate we should all come together to have.  Alas, that’s not what’s going on.  Instead of a serious attempt to understand the root causes of the problem and fix them, we’re getting nothing but cynical finger-pointing, political maneuvering, blame-shifting and fomenting of even more hatred, division and racial suspicion.  What’s going on now isn’t useful, it isn’t bringing the country together, it’s harmful rather than healing, and frankly, in at least one way, it’s absolutely disgusting.

I would hope that at a time when Americans are reeling and mourning from the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton that those who want to be leaders would be extremely careful about their words.  President Trump is often accused of being sloppy with language or more combative than he needs to be, but even he understood the importance of insuring that his words were cautious, respectful and healing.

https://www.westernjournal.com/hermancain/trump-mental-illness-hatred-pull-trigger-not-gun-condemns-racism-bigotry-white-supremacy/ 

A video of his full remarks are at that link, but here are some salient quotes:

“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul.”

“We must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and perform demented acts. We must shine light on the dark recesses of the internet and stop mass murders before they start.”

“Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger — not the gun.”

Unfortunately, many who seek to be leaders in America are not very careful with their words.  One reason I have a writing/research staff is because I don’t want to be accused of trying to promote my point of view by using incorrect “facts” or fake quotes.  My people are very good at digging up reliable data, direct quotes from the source and accurate summaries of opposing viewpoints.  In other words, I don’t just make this stuff up, or stuff straw men to argue against because it’s easier than engaging honestly.  I wish everyone had the same attitude, particularly at a time like this, when slanderous false statements can spread anger and division that harm the entire nation.

All this is preamble to what I could turn into a daily feature: “Corrections Time!”

I already did “Beto” O’Rourke yesterday, but he’s flinging out false statements faster than he’s flinging his arms around these days.  O’Rourke has been all over TV (especially CNN and MSNBC, of course), railing about Trump’s thoughtless use of language while spewing the s-word and the f-word and taking Christ’s name in vain on live TV, but I digress. 

There’s hardly a debunked anti-Trump meme that he hasn’t resuscitated, from “all Mexicans are rapists and criminals” to “he tried to ban all Muslims from the US” to “children in cages” to claiming Trump is an “open, avowed racist,” even though Trump has called himself the least racist person in the world – pretty bad avowing there.  Even if Trump were a racist – which I do not believe he is – claiming he’s an "open and avowed racist" when he’s repeatedly denounced racism and denied being a racist makes me as skeptical of everything O’Rourke says as I am of his chances of ever being President.   

https://nypost.com/2019/08/04/beto-exploits-tragedy-for-sake-of-politics/

Next, Sen. Cory Booker claimed Trump was responsible for the El Paso shooting, even though the shooter wrote in his deranged “manifesto” that fake news media would try to claim that, but he’d felt this way long before Trump came on the scene.  Booker also claimed that Trump “has taken no action whatsoever to even condemn white supremacy.”

At the link are a list of quotes from Trump, condemning racism and white supremacy.

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/cory-booker-claims-trump-not-condemned-white-supremacy-years/

CNN tried to tie Texas Sen. John Cornyn to the El Paso shooter’s hatred of Hispanics, citing a similarity between something he tweeted and a line in the shooter’s “manifesto.”  It was actually just the headline of a Texas Tribune news story Cornyn retweet, followed by praise for Texas’ Hispanic residents.  Follow the full smear job here:

https://twitchy.com/sarahd-313035/2019/08/05/seriously-despicable-cnn-propagates-disgusting-smear-linking-gop-sen-john-cornyn-to-el-paso-shooter-video/

 

Hillary Clinton reminded us of why America caught such a break in 2016 by tweeting this:

"People suffer from mental illness in every other country on earth; people play video games in virtually every other country on earth.  The difference is the guns.”

Maybe she hasn’t heard about the mass knife attacks in countries that heavily regulate guns, such as the attacks in China, some of which have involved dozens of injuries and up to 33 deaths.  Or the stabbing rampage in May at a Tokyo bus stop (2 dead and 16 injured, including over a dozen schoolgirls.)  But you’d think she would at least remember the shooting at the mosque in Christchurch in March that killed 51 people and injured 49 more.  That was cited by the El Paso shooter.  FYI: that shooter was Australian, and Christchurch is in New Zealand.  Both are nations other than the USA.  And he used a gun to shoot people.

Former President Obama also spoke out on the shootings, tying them to racism with the obvious implication of blaming Trump and Trump supporters (he conveniently forgot to mention that the Dayton killer was a Warren-supporting, Trump-hating, pro-gun control socialist.) 

https://www.westernjournal.com/obama-speaks-mass-shootings-conveniently-leaves-dayton-shooters-alleged-leftist-ties/

By the way, considering what I just wrote, it took real chutzpah for Elizabeth Warren to send out tweets trying to blame the shootings on Trump.

Lastly, Joe Biden chimed in, claiming that the shootings are being fueled by Trump’s divisive rhetoric, which is “causing people to die.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/biden-latest-dem-candidate-try-connect-trump-el-paso-shooting-rhetoric-causing-people-die/

Putting aside all the violent rhetoric Biden has used about wanting to punch Trump, I wonder what kind of divisive presidential rhetoric might have been responsible for the shootings at the Sandy Hook school, the Aurora movie theater, the Washington Navy ship yard, Fort Hood, San Bernardino, the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, and the racially-motivated shooting of police officers in Dallas, to name just a few, all of which happened during the Obama/Biden years?

Amid all these misquotations, innuendoes and convenient edits of history, here’s an unassailable, provable fact:

When you point your finger at someone else, three fingers are pointing back at you.

    with all this junk about guns--They don't kill people--people kill people--be it guns, knives, or bic pens--don't see a whole lot about banning bic pens(they were implicated in several airline hijackings--guess those folks died for no reason, or retribution('course the Lord will exact that--not really our job)

    Every time there is a shooting the politicians jump on center stage to point fingers and preaching they have a plan. We hear this for about a week about it’s the Presidents fault, he needs to do something. President Trump has only be there about 3 years, these politicians that are screamingthe loudest have been there all there lives, why haven’t they done something, their the law makers. I think stopping mass shooting is like controlling the weather. I think we should arm everyone so when some idiot starts shooting we could return fire and end it quickly, just a thought.

    I think we need to attach a national right to carry open and concealed if we have any additional infringements to our ability to purchase guns.

    Humanity strives to resolve all matters of conflict no matter the severity, its what makes us a better species. Sometimes there are no resolutions. Sometimes the conflict is initiated by uncontrollable variables which we have no control, like a mentally disturbed person who is depressed or vulnerable to social pressures or drug dependent. Blaming guns for violence is tantamount to blaming the spoon for a persons obesity. We cannot penalize humanity for the ill deeds of a few.

    When are the brain-dead Americans going to wake up and realize we don't have a gun problem, we have a sin problem! The country continues to turn father and farther away from God. It's immoral for the liberal politicians to use these tragedies for their own political gains. You can see how they delight to see these tragedies so the can continue to blame it on Trump.

  • Michael Galloway

    08/06/2019 06:23 PM

    Every conservative voter and gun owner (whether for target shooting, hunting, self-defense and home protection, collector, etc.) needs to realize that when a Democrat talks gun control they truly are looking ahead to where all guns can be confiscated. They will say they are not, but that is their ultimate goal- they are very much anti-gun and in their own shallow thinking they really do believe when you take guns away from a society, suddenly we will have peace. That ideology is so far from reality that its pathetic. First the criminals and terrorists aren't going to give up their guns and if law abiding citizens do then they just become potential victims. Look how "gun control" worked out during the Nazi Germany regime of Adolph Hitler. Look around the world and see where when any government made sure that citizens cannot be armed, they are slaughtered by evil, whether that be terrorist or their own governments!!!
    The Democrats want to rescind, cancel or change the 2nd amendment and ultimately confiscate guns from law abiding citizens, no matter what lies and deception they spew. Americans should never give up their guns because somebody (mainly Democrats) strive to compete their ideology of a gun free nation.
    The Democrats want open borders. Now we have all this talk from the Democrats and mainstream media about our nations gun problem, but of course none of them would say that the probability or risk of more atrocities and evil plans could very well and probably would increase with open borders or no vetting. The Democrats do not care about law abiding citizens and their rights and freedoms, they only care about politicizing every tragedy in this nation and the mainstream media is on the same page.
    Wake up America and keep fighting for freedoms and privileges that we do have. If freedom is every lost, it probably won't be gained again. And if the 2nd amendment is every changed or rescinded, then all the other amendments will fall for the lack of being able to defend them against an unrealistic ideology.
    And although mental health may be just one reason for all the shootings, there are so many other factors. One is calling evil what it is and calling good what it is. Evil is definitely an overlooked factor in these so called mass shootings. Our nation needs to return to God, our nations needs to return to the moral code of the Ten Commandments which apply to nations and individuals. Our nation will have a less chance of returning to God if Democrats every again take over or take control of the White House, House or Senate. Wake up Americans and make sure they don't !!! This is not the time to become complacent against the real agenda of fundamentally transforming America to fits the Democrats ideology and agenda!!!!

    Thank you for your comments; as always, you are so correct! Love watching your show and hearing your "no nonsense, common sense" narrative on today's issues. We know that guns don't kill, people do. But, what has been swept under the rug is how our culture actually promotes violence: videos teach kids how to kill and glorifies it; violent movies and T.V. shows draw huge crowds and top ratings; song lyrics encourages violence and hatred; and social media is a garbage dump for rantings full of hate. Thanks, for telling it "like it is." God's blessings!!!

    I will start with saying I didn't vote for the prez (though I am a conservative) but respect him as our leader and certainly don't agree he is a racist and should be blamed for these two tragedies. However, I have to jump in about "mental illness" being the culprit. I've been struggling with bi-polar and have been discriminated from many people and could have killed people about it. The point is, just because someone commits atrocities like these, they are NOT necessarily mentally ill. As a Christian you know the adversary is always around and people are EVIL sometimes... not to be confused with mental illness as the Prez and others were saying; the killers were/are evil. Finally, others with mental illness as myself just doesn't make sense that we could kill like that. When depressed, hard for me to even get out of bed let alone shoot up a bunch of people. And when manic, I'm usually really happy and hard to concentrate... I wouldn't be able to pick up an assault weapon and fire and reload... couldn't concentrate enough. Only someone EVIL would be able to know that. Being evil and pulling a trigger is NOT a mental illness.

    But of course first thing to do is shut down 8chan, because the El Paso shooter posted his manifesto on 4chan 1 month prior to the shooting, and then 12 minutes after the shooting began, he posted it to 8chan. So by all means, silence 8chan, it was the first thing done, and the right thing to do. To hell with the first amendment. Now lets destroy the second amendment in an ignorant knee-jerk reaction, that stinks to high heaven with deep state corruption.

    "If the Constitution is not the law, then the lawlessness is the only rule you must abide by." The 2nd amendment does not state what type of arms, how many or who can own them. The proposed "red flags" should be read as signs of those reaching out for help for mental health issues and often neglected

  • Daniel Lach

    08/06/2019 04:00 PM

    One other thought to add to my earlier message. President Trump needs to put forward legislation or executive order which will protect citizens using their right to protect themselves and others during mass shootings from spurious legal jeopardy by those who do not want us to stop the shootings and actually want to take our weapons so we cannot defend ourselves.

    In th elate 50s and early 60s the liberals determined that it was not correct to confine mentally disturbed people in separate facilities. At that time these people were turned loose and to this day are allowed to roam unsupervised. I believe many of the "shooters" FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY.

    In broadcasting 50 years. Never heard such foolishness we are subject to now. As I read my Bible there are words like, "professing themselves to be wise they have become fools". Never in my life have I heard so many wise fools on tv, radio and print. The people shouted to their politician, "do something". I am convinced we must re-do so many things like outlawing pray or mention of God in school and (some) public meetings, stop criticizing Christians and permitting foreign "religion" to enter through the back door, and correct political correctness among many other.

    Humanity strives to resolve all matters of conflict no matter the severity, its what makes us a better species. Sometimes there are no resolutions. Sometimes the conflict is initiated by uncontrollable variables which we have no control, like a mentally disturbed person who is depressed or vulnerable to social pressures or drug dependent. Blaming guns for violence is tantamount to blaming the spoon for a persons obesity. We cannot penalize humanity for the ill deeds of a few.

It's immoral for the liberal politicians to use these tragedies for their own political gains. You can see how they delight to see these tragedies so the can continue to blame it on Trump.

  • Michael Galloway

    08/06/2019 06:23 PM

    Every conservative voter and gun owner (whether for target shooting, hunting, self-defense and home protection, collector, etc.) needs to realize that when a Democrat talks gun control they truly are looking ahead to where all guns can be confiscated. They will say they are not, but that is their ultimate goal- they are very much anti-gun and in their own shallow thinking they really do believe when you take guns away from a society, suddenly we will have peace. That ideology is so far from reality that its pathetic. First the criminals and terrorists aren't going to give up their guns and if law abiding citizens do then they just become potential victims. Look how "gun control" worked out during the Nazi Germany regime of Adolph Hitler. Look around the world and see where when any government made sure that citizens cannot be armed, they are slaughtered by evil, whether that be terrorist or their own governments!!!
    The Democrats want to rescind, cancel or change the 2nd amendment and ultimately confiscate guns from law abiding citizens, no matter what lies and deception they spew. Americans should never give up their guns because somebody (mainly Democrats) strive to compete their ideology of a gun free nation.
    The Democrats want open borders. Now we have all this talk from the Democrats and mainstream media about our nations gun problem, but of course none of them would say that the probability or risk of more atrocities and evil plans could very well and probably would increase with open borders or no vetting. The Democrats do not care about law abiding citizens and their rights and freedoms, they only care about politicizing every tragedy in this nation and the mainstream media is on the same page.
    Wake up America and keep fighting for freedoms and privileges that we do have. If freedom is every lost, it probably won't be gained again. And if the 2nd amendment is every changed or rescinded, then all the other amendments will fall for the lack of being able to defend them against an unrealistic ideology.
    And although mental health may be just one reason for all the shootings, there are so many other factors. One is calling evil what it is and calling good what it is. Evil is definitely an overlooked factor in these so called mass shootings. Our nation needs to return to God, our nations needs to return to the moral code of the Ten Commandments which apply to nations and individuals. Our nation will have a less chance of returning to God if Democrats every again take over or take control of the White House, House or Senate. Wake up Americans and make sure they don't !!! This is not the time to become complacent against the real agenda of fundamentally transforming America to fits the Democrats ideology and agenda!!!!

    I will start with saying I didn't vote for the prez (though I am a conservative) but respect him as our leader and certainly don't agree he is a racist and should be blamed for these two tragedies. However, I have to jump in about "mental illness" being the culprit. I've been struggling with bi-polar and have been discriminated from many people and could have killed people about it. The point is, just because someone commits atrocities like these, they are NOT necessarily mentally ill. As a Christian you know the adversary is always around and people are EVIL sometimes... not to be confused with mental illness as the Prez and others were saying; the killers were/are evil. Finally, others with mental illness as myself just doesn't make sense that we could kill like that. When depressed, hard for me to even get out of bed let alone shoot up a bunch of people. And when manic, I'm usually really happy and hard to concentrate... I wouldn't be able to pick up an assault weapon and fire and reload... couldn't concentrate enough. Only someone EVIL would be able to know that. Being evil and pulling a trigger is NOT a mental illness.

So by all means, silence 8chan, it was the first thing done, and the right thing to do. To hell with the first amendment.

  • Daniel Lach

    One other thought to add to my earlier message. President Trump needs to put forward legislation or executive order which will protect citizens using their right to protect themselves and others during mass shootings from spurious legal jeopardy by those who do not want us to stop the shootings and actually want to take our weapons so we cannot defend ourselves.

    In broadcasting 50 years. Never heard such foolishness we are subject to now. As I read my Bible there are words like, "professing themselves to be wise they have become fools". Never in my life have I heard so many wise fools on tv, radio and print. The people shouted to their politician, "do something". I am convinced we must re-do so many things like outlawing pray or mention of God in school and (some) public meetings, stop criticizing Christians and permitting foreign "religion" to enter through the back door, and correct political correctness among many other.

August 6, 2019

Once again, the media tell us that we’re engaged in a “national debate” over how to stop mass shootings.  I only wish that were true.  I am adamantly in favor of a national debate.  I debated in school, and I know the rules for real debates: you have to present evidence for your side and argue for it rationally and logically.  I would love to see a debate that addresses the real root causes of these horrific acts of violence, which I’ve long written and talked about: the destruction of the family unit, the absence of fathers, the desensitization of kids to violence, the banishing of religion and moral teaching from the public square, undermining of respect for the sanctity of life, the way isolated social media relationships and coarse anonymous Internet sniping have replaced personal human contact in churches and community groups, the “war on boys” that tells young men they’re bad and useless just for being male, and on and on. 

I would even be willing to listen to suggestions for new gun laws, if they were effective at keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people, and not just the same regurgitated anti-Second Amendment leftist wish list of “common sense” gun laws that are anything but.  Those proposed laws invariably would have done nothing to stop the mass shootings, but they would disarm and criminalize law-abiding citizens while making it easier for criminals and deranged shooters to victimize us (like the insane “gun-free zone” concept – “I wanted to shoot a bunch of people, but the sign says this is a ‘gun-free zone.’ Darn it, I guess my killing spree is off!  I wouldn’t want to violate the sign!”)

All those things should be part of the constructive debate we should all come together to have.  Alas, that’s not what’s going on.  Instead of a serious attempt to understand the root causes of the problem and fix them, we’re getting nothing but cynical finger-pointing, political maneuvering, blame-shifting and fomenting of even more hatred, division and racial suspicion.  What’s going on now isn’t useful, it isn’t bringing the country together, it’s harmful rather than healing, and frankly, in at least one way, it’s absolutely disgusting. 

https://www.westernjournal.com/democrats-fundraising-off-el-paso-dayton-massacres/

I would hope that at a time when Americans are reeling and mourning from the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton that those who want to be leaders would be extremely careful about their words.  President Trump is often accused of being sloppy with language or more combative than he needs to be, but even he understood the importance of insuring that his words were cautious, respectful and healing.

https://www.westernjournal.com/hermancain/trump-mental-illness-hatred-pull-trigger-not-gun-condemns-racism-bigotry-white-supremacy/ 

A video of his full remarks are at that link, but here are some salient quotes:

“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul.”

“We must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and perform demented acts. We must shine light on the dark recesses of the internet and stop mass murders before they start.”

“Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger — not the gun.”

Unfortunately, many who seek to be leaders in America are not very careful with their words.  One reason I have a writing/research staff is because I don’t want to be accused of trying to promote my point of view by using incorrect “facts” or fake quotes.  My people are very good at digging up reliable data, direct quotes from the source and accurate summaries of opposing viewpoints.  In other words, I don’t just make this stuff up, or stuff straw men to argue against because it’s easier than engaging honestly.  I wish everyone had the same attitude, particularly at a time like this, when slanderous false statements can spread anger and division that harm the entire nation.

All this is preamble to what I could turn into a daily feature: “Corrections Time!”

I already did “Beto” O’Rourke yesterday, but he’s flinging out false statements faster than he’s flinging his arms around these days.  O’Rourke has been all over TV (especially CNN and MSNBC, of course), railing about Trump’s thoughtless use of language while spewing the s-word and the f-word and taking Christ’s name in vain on live TV, but I digress. 

There’s hardly a debunked anti-Trump meme that he hasn’t resuscitated, from “all Mexicans are rapists and criminals” to “he tried to ban all Muslims from the US” to “children in cages” to claiming Trump is an “open, avowed racist,” even though Trump has called himself the least racist person in the world – pretty bad avowing there.  Even if Trump were a racist – which I do not believe he is – claiming he’s an "open and avowed racist" when he’s repeatedly denounced racism and denied being a racist makes me as skeptical of everything O’Rourke says as I am of his chances of ever being President.   

https://nypost.com/2019/08/04/beto-exploits-tragedy-for-sake-of-politics/

Next, Sen. Cory Booker claimed Trump was responsible for the El Paso shooting, even though the shooter wrote in his deranged “manifesto” that fake news media would try to claim that, but he’d felt this way long before Trump came on the scene.  Booker also claimed that Trump “has taken no action whatsoever to even condemn white supremacy.”

At the link are a list of quotes from Trump, condemning racism and white supremacy.

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/cory-booker-claims-trump-not-condemned-white-supremacy-years/

CNN tried to tie Texas Sen. John Cornyn to the El Paso shooter’s hatred of Hispanics, citing a similarity between something he tweeted and a line in the shooter’s “manifesto.”  It was actually just the headline of a Texas Tribune news story Cornyn retweet, followed by praise for Texas’ Hispanic residents.  Follow the full smear job here:

https://twitchy.com/sarahd-313035/2019/08/05/seriously-despicable-cnn-propagates-disgusting-smear-linking-gop-sen-john-cornyn-to-el-paso-shooter-video/

 

Hillary Clinton reminded us of why America caught such a break in 2016 by tweeting this:

"People suffer from mental illness in every other country on earth; people play video games in virtually every other country on earth.  The difference is the guns.”

Maybe she hasn’t heard about the mass knife attacks in countries that heavily regulate guns, such as the attacks in China, some of which have involved dozens of injuries and up to 33 deaths.  Or the stabbing rampage in May at a Tokyo bus stop (2 dead and 16 injured, including over a dozen schoolgirls.)  But you’d think she would at least remember the shooting at the mosque in Christchurch in March that killed 51 people and injured 49 more.  That was cited by the El Paso shooter.  FYI: that shooter was Australian, and Christchurch is in New Zealand.  Both are nations other than the USA.  And he used a gun to shoot people.

Former President Obama also spoke out on the shootings, tying them to racism with the obvious implication of blaming Trump and Trump supporters (he conveniently forgot to mention that the Dayton killer was a Warren-supporting, Trump-hating, pro-gun control socialist.) 

https://www.westernjournal.com/obama-speaks-mass-shootings-conveniently-leaves-dayton-shooters-alleged-leftist-ties/

By the way, considering what I just wrote, it took real chutzpah for Elizabeth Warren to send out tweets trying to blame the shootings on Trump.

Lastly, Joe Biden chimed in, claiming that the shootings are being fueled by Trump’s divisive rhetoric, which is “causing people to die.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/biden-latest-dem-candidate-try-connect-trump-el-paso-shooting-rhetoric-causing-people-die/

Putting aside all the violent rhetoric Biden has used about wanting to punch Trump, I wonder what kind of divisive presidential rhetoric might have been responsible for the shootings at the Sandy Hook school, the Aurora movie theater, the Washington Navy ship yard, Fort Hood, San Bernardino, the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, and the racially-motivated shooting of police officers in Dallas, to name just a few, all of which happened during the Obama/Biden years?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mass_shootings_in_the_United_States

Amid all these misquotations, innuendoes and convenient edits of history, here’s an unassailable, provable fact:

When you point your finger at someone else, three fingers are pointing back at you.

    with all this junk about guns--They don't kill people--people kill people--be it guns, knives, or bic pens--don't see a whole lot about banning bic pens(they were implicated in several airline hijackings--guess those folks died for no reason, or retribution('course the Lord will exact that--not really our job)
    Think Trump should start training(like Rocky) I want to see the match between him and whoever his 2020 opponent is--no words(cause they are hollow) just actions--don't care the sex(could be real or trans-don't care) Want to see the victor dancing and the opponent bloody on the floor--you want character, commitment, conviction, and drive --watch that

    Every time there is a shooting the politicians jump on center stage to point fingers and preaching they have a plan. We hear this for about a week about it’s the Presidents fault, he needs to do something. President Trump has only be there about 3 years, these politicians that are screamingthe loudest have been there all there lives, why haven’t they done something, their the law makers. I think stopping mass shooting is like controlling the weather. I think we should arm everyone so when some idiot starts shooting we could return fire and end it quickly, just a thought.

    One other thought to add to my earlier message. President Trump needs to put forward legislation or executive order which will protect citizens using their right to protect themselves and others during mass shootings from spurious legal jeopardy by those who do not want us to stop the shootings and actually want to take our weapons so we cannot defend ourselves.

    God has given Gov. Huckabee special gifts of not only great discernment regarding all the things in the news and in this life, but also the wonderful ability to communicate verbally and in writing.
    I am so thankful for you - one of the only sane voices we have today.

    I agree with you whole heartedly!
    How long have we been doing the WAR on Drugs and drugs abuse is more prevalent than the last 30 years.
    Sooooo take away guns from everyone will NOT work. Timothy McVay did not use guns nor did the Boston bombers. Just my thoughts.
    Praying that we start to have a resurection oh Christians and their prayer lives. The United States certainly needs a prayerful revival????????????.

    In th elate 50s and early 60s the liberals determined that it was not correct to confine mentally disturbed people in separate facilities. At that time these people were turned loose and to this day are allowed to roam unsupervised. I believe many of the "shooters" FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY.

    In broadcasting 50 years. Never heard such foolishness we are subject to now. As I read my Bible there are words like, "professing themselves to be wise they have become fools". Never in my life have I heard so many wise fools on tv, radio and print. The people shouted to their politician, "do something". I am convinced we must re-do so many things like outlawing pray or mention of God in school and (some) public meetings, stop criticizing Christians and permitting foreign "religion" to enter through the back door, and correct political correctness among many other.
