Las Vegas – an act of pure evil.
Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last few hours you’re well aware of the act of carnage and pure evil perpetrated by a deranged gunman upon concert go’ers in Las Vegas. Frankly, America, in shock from this senseless event, prays for the victims, first responders and those that are now taking care of all the victims.
But with disasterous events like this, we are sure to find the opportunists more than eager to come out of their closets and crow for their causes celebre. This event is no different.
Clearly the empty talking heads of the perpetually clueless left wing liberal media continue to spew their pavlovian rhetoric of misinformation and biased talking points. Add to this, washed up celebrities with low ratings that are eager to do anything to get their names and faces in the press with the hopes of getting some recognition points by the cadres of their former fans and maybe make a few buck$ for themselves at the same time.
Yes, I’m talking about all the anti-gun, gun control, and advocates for yet more gun laws that are actually seeming to outpace beer ads on the TV in the last few days. These dolts with their sudden high profiles think that only they have the answer to these kinds of events and that their answer is to remove all guns. Frankly, history shows us that once again, their liberal bent is wrong and doesn’t work.
Once again, we have to remind them that this is NOT a gun issue, this is a VIOLENCE issue perpetrated by a deranged individual. Further that history, even current history, is repleat with facts of violence being metted out using what ever means are available to the perpetrator. It can be everything from a machette in a crowd to running a car into a mob of protesters like we saw a few weeks ago in Virginia.
Do you think that any of these all knowing, anti-gun liberals were howling for Ford Motors to stop making cars because a singe asshole ran his vehicle into a crowd? But why not? Following their mentality, it would only make sense.
If we really want to see just how good gun laws really work we have to look for further than the daily crime statistics of Chicago. Wake up.
So, if people think that removing all guns is the solution then I have to ask: Why not tell Ford Motors to stop making cars? Clearly drunk drivers are using cars to kill people at a quantifiably higher rate than the events in Vegas this week. How about the alcohol consumed by the drunk drivers
– I don’t hear liberals and the empty talking heads of the media crowing to Miller Beer to stop making High Life! Why not? The concept is the same!
OH, well, maybe they think that only guns can kill people….cars and drunks can’t. I see… Interesting logic, but then, we are talking about liberals.
Remember back when Timothy McVeigh used a rented truck with a fertilizer bomb to blo0w up the Murrah Building in OKC? Did the liberals or anyone else call for all trucks to stop being manufactured? NO. Did they call for all rentals to stop? NO. Did we remove any fertilizers? NO. We removed Timothy McVeigh….and way too humanely from my perspective. This may be considered cruel by most liberals, but there are a very few times and crimes that I firmly think we should consider bringing back things like crucifixion, impaling and the wheel. McVeigh clearly fits these scenerios.
Let’s look at a few other things:
Cigarette smoking kills about 480,000 U.S. citizens a year. Alcohol kills about 90,000 U.S. citizens a year. Medical errors by doctors and nurses kill 250,000 U.S. citizens a year. Illegal drugs kill more than 60,000 U.S. citizens per year. U.S. citizens that are murdered by guns are about 13,000 per year and it’s really interesting to look at the demographics, causes and targets of these events. Before you let an irrational liberal friend try to sway you on making guns harder to get, ask that friend what he or she is doing to make tobacco harder to get…inb ANY form! And don’t get me going on abortion . . .
Wake up America. THINK FOR YOURSELVES and don’t follow the empty talking heads that think they should decide what you should be thinking.
This isn’t a gun issue any more than drunk driving is an issue for Ford Motors. It’s a violence and mental illness issue. And, it needs to be dealt with aggressively and vigorously.
Punishing millions of law abiding citizens for the evil of a single person or a few is NOT the answer.
