The Left is Coming for the Guns Again!
The left comes loaded lock stock and barrel! It’s truly sad and disgusting that yet again before the blood is dry and the victims are all identified, those on the left began to politicize the tragedy that occurred in Orlando, Florida over the weekend. A tragedy that could have easily been averted had our federal government done what they should be doing, keeping us safe from foreign enemies and those who sympathize with those enemies, rather than obsessing over restricting and even considering banning our second amendment right altogether.
Another pathetic aspect of the events that unfolded following the tragedy in Orlando is how the pitiful news media rushed to conclusions speculating that the perpetrator was most likely a Trump supporter and or a “right wing extremist”. Amidst all of the speculation the news media had to reluctantly report that the perpetrator was indeed a man of muslim background who had clearly been radicalized. Then our glorious president goes on TV and attempts to cover for this crazy muslim by saying it was merely an act of hatred. At no point could he even come close to uttering the words “islamic terrorism”.
Therein lies both of the issues we see arising with this massacre, just as we see in every terror attack involving islamists and guns, our government possesses an innate inability to call out radical islam and instead they rush to attack our 2nd amendment right to bear arms. What is ironic about this is the fact that whether or not guns are involved the perpetrator will find a way to carry out an attack. Just take the Boston bombing for example, NO GUNS were involved in that horrific tragedy and yet is goes down as one of the worst terror attacks this country has ever suffered. Then take into account the mass murder that took place in Sweden carried out by Anders Behring Breivik in which he killed eight people by detonating a van bomb amid the Regjeringskvartalet in Oslo, and then shot dead 69 participants of a Workers’ Youth League (AUF) summer camp on the island of Utøya. One can even look to a city right in the heartland of the United States, Chicago, where they have enacted some of the most strict gun control laws in the nation yet the still suffer from the highest number of shootings and murders.
It’s clear to see that regardless of how much the left obsesses over guns and gun control, it is factually impossible to eliminate the 2nd amendment and keep Americans completely safe. I think Benjamin Franklin said it best,
Again even if they were to somehow reign in the 2nd amendment and begin to disarm the people the radical islamists would still find a way to carry out their attacks.
According to Breitbart,
A senior French police officer and his female companion were killed following an attack by a knife-wielding man in a distant suburb of Paris, officials said Monday. The attacker was also killed in the ensuing confrontation with police, while a three-year-old boy was rescued from the scene.
Paris! A city ravaged by terror attacks merely months ago continues their accommodations of the islamists. They also refuse to face the threat of islamic terror head on and as a result this innocent police officer and his female companion were brutally killed by a man with a knife shouting allahu akbar. Yes, I get it he had a knife rather than a gun and that there is grounds for a lot smaller number of those injured or killed, but what ever happened to the motto of the left when it comes to other tragic incidents, “if we could just save one life.” If you ask me a good guy with a gun could have saved way more than one life had he been present in Orlando when that tragedy took place.
The Breitbart article goes on to explain,
Some sources described the attacker as a neighbour of the policeman, who was in plain clothes when he was killed. Witnesses heard the assailant, described as a teenager or in his early 20s, shout “Allahu Akhbar”, Arabic for “God is great”.
This article along with the countless incidents of gun violence that take place in locations with strict gun laws make the clear point that what we need is not more gun laws. What we need is leadership that has the balls to call a spade a spade and confront the threat of islamic terror here at home head on. Right now the only individual that seems to be willing to do that is Donald Trump hence why he has garnered such a following. People are fed up with the status quo offered by the same old politicians we have been seeing over the past few decades and are in search of a real leader. I truly hope that if elected Donald Trump will be that leader we so desperately need!
