MONEY: Ocasio-Cortez’s rise reveals rampant economic illiteracy in US

Friday, November 16, 2018

Every educated person should understand basic supply and demand. If someone is in the business of laking laws that the rest of us must adhere to, they should ABSOLUTELY have a basic understanding of supply and demand. Sadly, economic ignorance is widespread among both the public and lawmakers.

It’s sad that some one so “uneducated” could be elected.

Wednesday’s California bar shooting was in a gun-free zone, where good guys cannot legally carry firearms: Opposing view

Once again, we see the failure of gun control in preventing a horrible tragedy.

Wednesday’s California bar shooting was in a gun-free zone, where good guys cannot legally carry firearms.

Gun-free zones are magnets for killers. Consider that almost 98 percent of public mass shootings in this country occur in these mandatory victim zones.

But where citizens can protect themselves, the situation is much different. Within the past month, two potential mass shootings were averted by law-abiding citizens who used their concealed firearms.

But the anti-gun left fails to mention how these two citizens saved lives in those incidents. Why is that?

We will never rid ourselves of one basic problem: Bad guys with evil intent will always acquire some kind of “weapon” to commit violence.

*** end quote ***

Sadly, once again, the Gooferment thinks it can defy “natural law”.  Criminals don’t obey laws and “gun restriction laws” are no different.  

“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

Stop the insanity!
