Michael Moore and Parkland Funky Bunch, together at last . . .
Michael Moore is known for his crazy, conspiracy-ridden movies that Lefties just love. He’s back…again, and this time, his latest movie, Fahrenheit 11/9, focuses on the “evil” that is Donald Trump.
On Friday night, Moore held the first public screening of the film during the Toronto International Film Festival. To make matters even more interesting, Moore invited Parkland survivors David Hogg, Ryan Deitsch and Matt Dietsch to join him.
A questions and answers segment was scheduled directly after the film ended. Instead of taking questions, Moore instantly turned the microphone over to Hogg, the Dietsch brothers and two people from Flint, Michigan, to address the audience…
Hogg used the time to rally the audience, despite not knowing that Canadians cannot take part in the American political process.
“Delmonte Johnson” was a volunteer with GoodKids MadCity, a youth anti-violence group created in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting.The group is made up of young people of color from Chicago, Washington and Baltimore public schools working to reduce gun violence through youth employment and by improving access to mental health treatment.Johnson had been putting together a fundraiser to help children go to Christian camp, his family told WLS.
“I just want peace. Heal the land. We losing too many of our babies. Every time you turn around mommas is crying; mommas is crying for they (sic) babies,” (his mother, Onique) Walker said.
A pistol in every holster and an AR-15 in every safe? . . .
The healthier environment was no more evident at the retail level than it was at Sportsman’s Warehouse (NASDAQ:SPWH), which enjoyed an 8.3% bounce in firearm unit sales, allowing it to gain market share. Because competitors like Dick’s Sporting Goods, Walmart, and Kroger all vowed to stop selling modern sporting rifles (MSRs) earlier this year after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, gun buyers turned to retailers that maintained their commitment to the industry. MSRs remain one of the most popular rifles on the market today.
Midterm elections are approaching, and that might get gun buyers thinking about the possibility of the tide turning again in Congress. American Outdoor CEO James Debney still sees slower growth ahead for the gun industry, particularly compared to two years ago, but that could change once again.
Pants on the ground, pants on the ground . . .
A criminal in Colorado should stick to his day job after he completely botched a robbery attempt of an E-Cig of Denver store in Aurora. Before entering the shop, the man paced back and forth multiple times until he finally decided to walk inside.
As he quickly approached the clerk, he reached into his pocket to pull out a gun. Before he could even make a demand for cash, the clumsy burglar fumbled the gun and it flew behind the counter. The startled cashier rushed toward the weapon while the attempted robber tried to climb over the glass display case to retrieve it.
She managed to beat him to the gun, which turned out to be an airsoft pistol, and the man quickly retreated. As he started to run away, his pants began to fall down. He kicked the door open and fled into the parking lot while trying to hold his pants up.
Does this mean that straw purchases are getting too risky and difficult?
The theft of more than 20 firearms at a Fenton gun store last week was the latest in an increase in such robberies at gun stores in Missouri and Illinois, according to federal officials.
Figures from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives show there were at least eight gun store burglaries last year in St. Louis, St. Charles and Jefferson counties, including an April 2017 heist at the Hazelwood Cabela’s.
“If they’re willing to take the risk … they can steal these guns, and more importantly, they can offload them,” John Ham, an ATF spokesman told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch last year. “There are plenty of people out there that are willing to buy them at high prices and very quickly.”
