So, lessee, two months before flying from wherever to Florida, checking a firearm (which thousands of law-abiding people do, every month/day), and then shooting up an airport, this guy was telling the FBI that he was delusional, hearing voices, and was going to “fight for isis.” And had an apparent history of domestic violence? Really?
Some say that government is full of bureaucratic incompetents. I’m inclined to agree.
Oh, the Horror!
Wish UPS would deliver to my house. (Of course I would return it….).
In any event, some family was reportedly “horrified” when UPS mistakenly delivered an “assault rifle” to their home in New York.
Another example of the left and left-media hyping up a narrative to suit their purpose – it was not an assault rifle. The rifle (oh, but wait, if it was dark colored and evil looking, with a “shoulder thingy that goes up…“) was apparently a bolt-action rifle. Or worse, that it was – OMG – A BARRETT 50 CALIBER SEMI AUTOMATIC ASSAULT RIFLE!?!
This, is a link to what may be the actual rifle. Not only is media hyping this story, but apparently, the guy who received it in error was not that much “horrified:”
So, “Horrified Couple receives assault rifle” becomes “Horrified Couple receives rifle”, becomes “Couple receives rifle. And Liberal Media Sucks.”
Keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people saves lives. And expanding Brady background checks to every sale is the best way to stop dangerous felons, domestic abusers, fugitives, and terrorists from buying guns.
He told The Yorkshire Post: ‘A lady was down on the floor. The man pulled a gun – it was a makeshift gun, not like something you see on television.
‘After the second shot I turned and ran. He walked away very calmly, down the steps. Nobody stopped him – he had a gun.’
We now know that mass shootings can occur anywhere, anytime. They can occur in churches, schools, nightclubs, and at holiday parties. They can occur at 2 in the morning and they can occur in the middle of the day. What would be your response if confronted?
Of course, fighting is perhaps easier if you have your wits about you and you are lawfully armed.
The fight over the Second Amendment and gun rights in America probably hasn’t been more intense in the last 10 years than it is right now, in the wake of a Muslim using a rifle and a handgun to kill at least 49 people at a “gay” bar in Florida over the weekend.
And coincidentally, Gun Owners of America is noting that right now, Americans have an opportunity to sound off to their own government about Barack Obama’s newest gun restriction proposal.
“Barack Obama understands it is the Second Amendment community that has destroyed his legacy,” the organization explains. “And now, like a rabid dog, he is lashing out in an effort to destroy as many law-abiding gun owners as possible.”
His newest plan would be to abruptly take Second Amendment rights away from a vast class of Social Security and government benefit recipients – anyone with help managing their government benefits and a wide range of other individuals.
The change would make it a crime, instantly, for those individuals to have guns.
“More than 80% of Americans want to close so-called terror loopholes, preventing people on terror watch lists from purchasing firearms,” Reid said.
“Yet in spite the public’s demand for action Senate Republicans continue to cower – cower before the NRA and the Gun Owners of America. The NRA is bad, really bad. Gun Owners of America is even worse than bad.”
Boy that’s rich.
Senate Republicans are cowering before the Democrats.
Terror loopholes? OMG – THERE’S TERROR LOOPHOLES?! CLOSE THEM IMMEDIATELY!
