After YouTube HQ Shooting, Witness Says, ‘I Didn’t Have a Gun on Me, But I Wish I Did’ – Not everyone in California is on board with that whole civilian disarmament thing . . .
A man who witnessed the shooting at YouTube on Tuesday said he wished he had a gun when the shooting occurred.
“I didn’t have a gun on me, but I wish I did,” he said.
He was ordering food across from the company’s headquarters when the shooting started. When asked how many shots he heard, he said about 10 and then others.
“It didn’t stop. It was no mercy. Whoever shot that time, oh, man. It was massive,” he said.
Stunner: WA Loses 11K Carry Licenses in Past 4 Months – Is the Evergreen State is disarming? . . .
In a remarkable reversal of a long-standing trend, the number of active concealed pistol licenses in Washington State has dropped by 11,000 over the past four months, a fact that might be alarming to gun rights groups, but may also suggest a return of lethargy in the firearms community.
The news comes as Evergreen State gun rights activists are planning two events in Olympia, one week apart. There’s an April 14 event running 5:30-8:30 p.m., organized by the National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans, and on April 21, noon-3 p.m. there’s a “March For Our Rights” rally. Both of these events will be held on the Capitol steps.
At the end of November 2017, the Department of Licensing reported to Liberty Park Press and TheGunMag.com that there were 591,366 active CPLs. Monday morning, the agency advised the number had dropped to 580,362 active licenses.
There’s No Ban on Studying Gun Violence – No matter what the anti-gun left would have you believe . . .
One of the common talking points that liberals throw around in the gun debate is that Republicans have banned even studying gun violence. So you get headlines such as “Lift the Federal Ban on Gun Violence Research” (the New Republic), or “Why Gun Violence Research Has Been Shut Down for 20 Years” (the Washington Post’s Wonkblog), or “GOP Chairman: Congress Should Rethink CDC Ban on Gun Violence Research” (The Hill), or “What’s Missing from the Gun Debate. It’s Simple: Science” (an op-ed in Politico).The reality is different, and it illustrates two contending views of how America should be governed.
To start with, nobody has been banned from anything, in the way we typically think of government bans. No law prohibits private citizens, universities, private foundations, or state governments from conducting studies of the subject. As the Federalist‘s David Harsanyi has noted:
Numerous states and private entities fund peer-reviewed studies and other research on gun violence. I know this because gun control advocates are constantly sending me studies that distort and conflate issues to help them make their arguments. My inbox is bombarded with studies and conferences and “webinars” dissecting gun violence.
Did we take the red pill or the blue pill? Did we fall down the rabbit hole or not? What does a scanner see? The liberal news media has convinced themselves and their allies that no one is advocating the repeal of the Second Amendment; they just wrote several op-eds about it.
This is all part of fever dream conservatives are suffering in the wake of the tragic Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February; the Left has made this diagnosis through their computer screens. No one wants to strip gun rights. It’s all a dream—sleep. Sleep. Sleep. Fortunately, the Right is not that dumb. We know what common sense gun control laws are—and we know the end game. It is the end of the Second Amendment. It is confiscation. Expanded background checks are the precursor to a national registry. Banning so-called assault weapons gets the scary ones out of the way. Magazine limits seriously prohibits the ownership and sale of firearms since a lot of handguns and rifles, with the exception of carry guns, bolt-action hunting rifles, revolvers, and 1911s, carry more than 10 rounds.
It’s a graduated chipping away of gun rights. It may not say explicitly its true nature, but it’s there. The March for Our Lives event explicitly showcased this, when the give an inch, they’ll take a mile. Still, the liberal news media is trying to convince us that the abolition of the Second Amendment is not part of the conversation.
After the FBI’s Pulse nightclub failure, why should we trust James Comey anymore? – Is that a trick question?
The FBI suffered another debacle on Friday when an Orlando jury returned a not guilty verdict for the widow of Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people and wounded 53 in his attack on Orlando’s Pulse nightclub in June 2016. The biggest terrorism case of the year collapsed largely thanks to FBI misconduct and deceit.
Noor Salman was charged with material support of a foreign terrorist organization and lying to the FBI about knowing about her husband’s pending attack on the nightclub. The FBI vigorously interrogated herfor 18 hours, threatening her with the loss of custody of her infant son unless she signed a confession. Salman, who reportedly had an IQ of only 84, initially denied any knowledge but relented and signed a statement composed by an FBI agent.
To all the kids that walked out of school to protest guns. These are the shoes of Jews that gave up their firearms to Hitler. They were led into gas chambers, murdered and buried in mass graves. Pick up a history book so you’ll realize what happens when you give up your rights. pic.twitter.com/Ry0MFRiWFK
