Denying the proven, life-saving benefits of gun ownership can come at a steep cost, including lives lost. The Rabbi at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh ignored the truth about guns and instead promoted gun control. In fact, he preached for members of his congregation to disarm. He willfully ignored the fact that guns save lives. Yes, even in houses of worship. Sadly, it cost him his life and those of a number of others in his temple.
Court records: Woman, 27, stabbed to death as child begs attacker to stop
A man was in police custody after a 27-year-old woman was found stabbed to death Sunday evening at a Phoenix residence. The woman’s 7-year-old daughter had begged the attacker to stop, police said.
The stabbing occurred several hours after the man, Roderick Brooks, had visited the residence of the woman, Keshonna Brooks, on the 2000 block of North 29th Street, to gather items from the home, Maricopa County court records show.
As usual, Michael Bloomberg’s paid doyenne of civilian disarmament, Shannon Watts, wasted no time taking advantage of a tragedy, dancing feverishly in the still-warm blood of the dead.
Soon, @NRA lapdogs will say that the Jewish Americans celebrating a bris in the basement of their Pittsburgh synagogue should have been armed. Shame them. Shun them.
The Second Amendment is a framework for lawmaking, not a suicide pact. Our lawmakers have the power to stop this. https://t.co/qgwVLRNS5p

Well, Shannon, it’s not. Looking at what happened Saturday morning, gun control looks like the real suicide pact. Even children know to call for good guys with guns when
irrational behavior trouble lurks.
Recognizing evil’s existence stands as the first step to preparing to stop it. Smug self-righteousness might feel good to the proponents of gun control, but foolishness doesn’t stop bad guys. A determined people with the right tools – including guns – protect the innocent.
We know the proven benefits of gun ownership include saving lives. We use them over a million times a year to defend ourselves. We want other people to know it, too. Because someday, the life they save may not only be their own. Or ours.
