Let’s Try To Actually Do Something About Mass Shootings

And simply banning a gun or some type of mag will do nothing. Some of the worst gun violence on the planet occurs in some places with the tightest gun-control laws: Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil. The left’s solution is always “more government”. Well, in Florida multiple government agencies failed to do their jobs. How is “more government” going to prevent criminals or the insane from getting weapons? How has government-dictated “gun-free” zones done anything other than advertise to criminals “come and attack, you will be unopposed”?

Here are three excellent articles echoing my views:

Florida School Shooting

Another horrible mass shooting and 17 people are dead. We are lucky it wasn’t more by all accounts. Never one to let a crisis go to waste, the far-left and Democrat politicians (one in the same) have renewed their shrill calls for gun control or total confiscation. Here is a question for these leftists: would gun control have prevented 9-11, the France truck terrorist attack, Oklahoma City, the NYC truck terrorist attack, or the worst school killing in American history?

No, it wouldn’t have. Here is a simple fact: the far-left is not interested in protecting the people, it wants to control them. Without a gun the crazed lunatic would have likely used other methods. It is a fact that gun violence is way down in this country while these rare but abominable mass shootings are up.

Why is that? Instead of looking for the root cause of such acts and preventing them (everyone knew this guy was nuts and violent) the left wants to confiscate an object. I don’t know why this is happening but lets look at some possible factors: the breakdown of the family (the left likes this) leaving many alienated youth. An epidemic of depression and prescription drug use, fueled even more by tech addiction and social media. A breakdown in the mental health and law-enforcement systems. Mass consumption of violence in our pop culture including TV, movies, music and especially video games. Rather than eliminating guns (only criminals will have them, just ask Mexico or Venezuela) the country needs to take a long hard look at the causes of this phenomenon and attack them head on.

 

Google Corporation is A Leftist Freakshow

Remember Google’s early corporate motto: “Don’t be evil”? Well, it has become, or always was evil. Google is a leftist cult where opposing views are silenced and non-believers drummed out of the company. If you do not support feminism, LGBT extremism, global warming and “white privilege” there is no place for you in the company. Why does this matter? It matters because Google and other leftist Silicon Valley companies are rapidly taking over the flow of information in the world. They may soon find themselves tightly regulated.

The Left Has Tried Everything to Destroy Trump, Now They Are Trying Crazy

The far-left and their witless dupes in the GOP “Never-Trump” movement (Bill Kristol) have tried everything under the sun to get Trump: Russia, conspiracy, fraud, racism, ect, ect and nothing has worked. Now they are trying to convince the country that Trump is nuts based on the content of his tweets.

Here is my take: the tweets are the public entertainer Trump, not meant to be taken literally, or even seriously at times. What Trump has done (tax reform, slashing regulation, court appointments) and said in moments of statesmanship (his excellent speeches at the UN and in the Middle East) are matters of substance and show that he is serious about the job at hand. Meaningless tweets are him blowing off steam and are at worst, unstatesmanlike. Who cares? That the left and never-Trumpers (Bill Kristol) take his tweet about a “bigger button” as some sign that he is about to launch a preemptive strike against North Korea shows how clueless and stupid they are. Oh, and as an aside, Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard (so-called conservative) is an arrogant, smarmy, treasonist, elitist, intellectually dishonest gas-bag who really longs for a statist dictatorship.

American Left-Wing Media Is A Dumpster Fire

Left-wing (call it mainstream if you want) media had one of its worst weeks ever recently. Continuously getting big stories wrong, publishing poorly sourced stories and not vetting sources is not a good look. The leftwing media is Hell-bent on destroying Trump and if not successful, appears poised to drive the car right off a cliff. I have seen several formerly respectable media people try to argue that this is their “finest hour” since they are trying to shed light on real or perceived violations by the Trump administration. The funny thing is, I do not recalling them showing such gusto in going after the horribly corrupt Obama presidency, one that even leftists called perhaps the least transparent in history.
