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.

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!

GUNS: Cleveland To Help Crooks Dump Guns Used In Crimes

Monday, October 15, 2018

What buybacks do, with their no-questions-asked policy, is allow criminals to dump incriminating evidence in a way that won’t link back to them. It makes it more difficult for police to gather evidence to put these criminals behind bars.

GUNS: Why did no one shoot back?

Assailant with shotgun invades newsroom, kills five. Why did no one shoot back? 
by Vin Suprynowicz 

*** begin quote ***

Why did no one in the building shoot back? Were they all disarmed? Why? Is the Annapolis newspaper one of many with signs on its entrance doors warning employees—not just visitors, mind you, but trusted EMPLOYEES—they can be suspended or fired if they bring onto the premises a self-defense handgun—even one for which they have a hard-to-acquire, government-issued “permit”?

I’ll betcha. I’ll betcha they do. And if that turns out to be the case, could it possibly be . . . the management of this oh-so-Far-Left and Politically Correct newspaper chain that has “blood on its hands”?

*** end quote ***

Yet another “gun free zone”.

Argh!

GUNS: Failure to prosecute allowed “gun control” to fail

Accused newsroom shooter’s stalking victim: I warned cops
By Amanda Woods
June 29, 2018 | 9:37am | Updated

*** begin quote ***

A woman who claimed that the Capital Gazette shooting suspect had stalked, harassed and sued her warned a former police official that “he will be your next mass shooter,” according to a new report.

The woman, whose name was not released, also told local station WBAL 11that Jarrod W. Ramos, 38, the shotgun-toting man who allegedly burst into the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., on Thursday, killing five staffers, was “a f—ing nut job.”

Jayne Miller, an investigative reporter at WBAL, tweeted that the woman told her Ramos became “fixated” on her for no obvious reason — causing her to move three times, change her name and even sleep with a gun out of fear.

*** end quote ***

Imagine if just one person in the newsroom was armed?

But the Gooferment want “We, The Sheeple” disarmed so this keeps happening.  

The newspaper didn’t want to prosecute for fear of making the situation worse.  Guess that tactic didn’t work.

So we have a double failure of “gun control”: (1) folks have to prosecute the evil people so that “gun control” has even a chance of working; and (2) “gun control” kept the victims from being able to defend themselves.

So sad and so avoidable.

Requiescat In Pacem, America!

I hope that this case can be used to overturn the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee’s UNCONSTITUTIONAL gun ban.

Anyone feel treated by this fellow?

Where’s the GOFUNDME page for him?

Argh!

Horrific moment female worker is pinned to the floor by knife-wielding ‘rapist’ before a ‘guardian angel’ bursts in to save her

  • Man spotted a woman being attacked in a shop in Krasnoyarsk, Russia
  • Seeing ‘an attempted rape’ by another man with a knife, he intervened
  • CCTV caught the moment  the attack took place, and when it was stopped

A Russian man has been hailed as a hero after saving a female shopworker from an armed man who was ‘attempting to rape her’. 

Alexander Vysotsky was walking past a shop in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, when he saw a young female clerk being attacked by a man, and dashed in to pull him off her, and held him down until police came.

The horrific attack was caught on CCTV and shows the woman, known only as Ekaterina, 28, suddenly attacked by a man with a knife in the shop.

I think the RKBA is a “woman’s issue” or a “senior citizen’s issue” or a “gay right’s issue” or even a “bully’s victim’s issue”.

We need to “even the playing field” from the thugs and criminals. Make them guess. 

As wrote more than a decade ago:

“I particularly like unlimited concealed carry. If the criminal regards the general public as sheep to be shorn, then let’s sprinkle in a few “sheepdogs” with big teeth in the flock.

Guess which gay to bash? Buzz, wrong, you picked a Pink Pistol and you’re dead!

Guess which woman to bash? Buzz, wrong, you picked a Paxton Quigly and you’re dead!

Guess which brown person to bash? Buzz, wrong, you picked a Massad Ayoob and you’re dead!”

GUNS: Let’s DO what everyone already agrees on!

Support For Armed Teachers Comes From Unexpected Place: Science!
Posted at 10:00 am on April 7, 2018 by Tom Knighton

*** begin quote ***

Computer modeling shows what we already knew, that an armed response from a good guy saves lives in school shooting scenarios.

*** end quote ***

Why can’t we start with everything that everyone agrees on. (1) fixing the broken background check system; (2) ending the “target rich environments” aka “gun free zones”; (3) “gun violence restraining orders” that require court hearing; and (4) strict enforcement of “felon in possession” laws. No argument from the NRA; no argument from the “anti-gun” folks! Why don’t we? Because the politicians, bureaucrats, and “talking heads” would lose their “talking points”. See they don’t really want to solve the problem; they just want to have something to say. Argh!
