Blame The Nut, Not The Gun

Or the knife or the car…

Elliot Rodgers stabbed people, shot people and hit people with his car. He was a nut who had real issues. One only needs to read his words to understand that he had serious mental issues and that his view of the world and of life was skewed. He murdered people, an act that is already against the law.

The liberal left is using this event to once again ratchet up the anti gun rhetoric. The liberals want more gun control and more background checks even though this nut was from one of the most anti gun (and restrictive) states in the Union. None of the laws liberals want would have stopped this guy from murdering people. He stabbed several and used his car as a weapon. Without the gun people still would have died.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office identified the three men found dead in Rodger’s apartment as Cheng Yuan Hong, 20; George Chen, 19; and Weihan Wang, 20. Hong and Chen were his roommates, while Wang was visiting the apartment, the sheriff’s office said. The three students died from “multiple stab wounds” before the shooting rampage, the sheriff’s office said. [emphasis mine]

No one is calling for a ban on guns or more strict requirements for a driver’s license. They are focusing on the gun which was just another tool used by a mentally deranged person to murder people.

Who to blame is the first question from liberals when these things happen. The response in this case is the NRA and Republicans.

No one has stated the obvious and that is the murderer and ONLY the murderer is responsible for what happened.

The knife did not murder or injure people. The car did not murder or injure people and the gun did not murder or injure people. Rodgers did all of that and he used those items to do it.

If a person is determined to do harm there is nothing that can be done to stop him. The fact that he used a knife and a car shows that he did not need the gun to inflict pain and cause mayhem.

Another case where the police knew there was an issue: “Rodger’s family contacted police after discovering social media posts about suicide and killing people, family spokesman and attorney Alan Shifman told reporters Saturday.

Six policemen showed up at Rodger’s home in Isla Vista on April 30, but they found nothing alarming. So they told Rodger[sic] to call his mother and they reassured her that he was OK, according to Astaire.” (Seems to me this might be enough to get a court order to remove any weapons until they were sure he was not unhinged ~ BD)

There will be more calls for gun control from all kinds of people who don’t really care about the victims. They care only about a political agenda and that agenda includes disarming those who had nothing to do with this (or any other) event. Liberals do not care about the victims and they actually like when these things happen. It allows them to push a false narrative to further their dream of disarming Americans.

All the shooters in these events turn out to be left wing nut jobs so perhaps we should ban liberalism and end the violence.

I pray for the victims but I will never agree that America has a gun problem.

America has a liberal problem, particularly nut job liberals.

NFL Bans Daniel Defense Super Bowl Ad

The NFL allows all kinds of ads during the Super Bowl. Some are for erectile dysfunction and a lot for alcohol, particularly beer. There are sexually suggestive ads and there are ads that support things like gun control. Some teams in the NFL even promote things like Obamacare.

But the NFL has standards don’t you know. The NFL will not allow ads that do not meet their standards, such that they are. Yes, while the NFL allows ads FOR gun control and that show scantily clad women serving beer to men who take pills for erectile dysfunction one thing the NFL will not stand for is an ad that promotes self defense.

Daniel Defense has an ad that shows a veteran talking about his responsibility to protect his family. A gun is never mentioned though a picture of one appears at the end in the Daniel Defense logo.

This is apparently too much for the NFL, an organization that has a whole lot of violent law breakers smashing each other for our entertainment. Colion Noir has this to say about it:

Noir is absolutely correct in his assessment. No one with a half a brain who sees the commercial can disagree with it but the NFL will not allow it.

I can understand the desire of the NFL to have standards but it is hard for it to make a case when it allows questionable ads and when it books halftime shows that should come with parental warnings.

Get Rid Of Your Guns Or Move

An apartment complex in Castle Rock Colorado has a new rule. It notified tenants that they have until 1 October to get rid of their firearms or they will not be allowed to live in their apartment. The letter basically says that on 1 October residents cannot display, use, or possess any firearms or weapons of any kind, anywhere on the property.

A baseball bat or kitchen knife can be used as a weapon but that is a discussion for another time.

The issue here is does the apartment complex have the legal right to deny a person’s rights? I am no lawyer and do not know if this is legal or not. It seems to me that changing the rules for people who live there is wrong whether it is legal or not. I know that some complexes have banned certain types of dogs but there is no right to keep and bear dogs written in the US Constitution.

There are people living there who are very upset. One is a 77 year old retired Marine who has very little money (so he can’t move or afford a lawyer) but owns firearms and hunts. He even has a concealed carry permit. The state has checked on him and he is OK to carry a concealed gun and he certainly carried one in the Corps but he is unable to own one and live at this complex.

Before the anti gun nuts cheer the decision of the apartment owner please think about this. Suppose the letter had been sent out that indicated that residents could not display, use, or possess religious items of any kind, anywhere on the property.

You could not have a Bible, Koran or Torah. No Christmas tree or Menorah. No religious jewelry like a Cross or Star of David or clothing such as a yarmulke or burka. If you refuse to get rid of them you have to move and if you are caught with any of those items you will be evicted.

How would that go over? If they can legally deny one constitutionally protected right then they can deny any constitutionally protected right.

If this had been the existing rule and people rented with full knowledge of the ban then it would not be an issue. The problem here is that people have been living here and own firearms and now the rules have changed.

I know there are people who are anti gun and who don’t think people should own them. Fine, then don’t own one but leave everyone else alone.

Particularly in Castle Rock where the police failed to enforce a protective order and three children were murdered as a result.

Oh, and the Supreme Court ruled the police had no obligation to enforce the order.

The police are under no obligation to protect you. If you live in Castle Rock at those apartments you will have no way of protecting yourself.

Will the apartment complex owners be responsible if someone who relinquishes his firearms just to have a home is injured or murdered?

The apartments are managed by Ross Management Group. Please avoid doing business with them wherever they happen to be. Your life might depend on it.

Interesting Information About Guns

Obama opposes guns for self defense even in the home:

As a state senator in Illinois, President Obama opposed legislation providing an exception to handgun restrictions if the weapon was used in the defense of one’s home. White House Dossier

Even Pravda warns against giving up our guns:

These days, there are few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bear arms and use deadly force to defend one’s self and possessions. Pravda

Do you have a responsibility to fight if they come for your guns?:

You have the right to kill any representative of this government who tries to tread on your liberty. I am thinking about self-defense and not talking about inciting a revolution. Re-read Jefferson’s quote. He talks about a “last resort.” I am not trying to start a Revolt, I am talking about self-defense. If the day for Revolution comes, when no peaceful options exist, we may have to talk about that as well. None of us wants to think about that, but please understand that a majority can not take away your rights as an American citizen. Only you can choose to give up your rights. The DC Clothesline

It will likely get really ugly in the near future. People need to decide where they want to be and what they are willing to fight for. If the government can impose its will and remove God given rights like the right to keep and bear arms then it can remove the right to peaceably assemble, practice religion, speak freely, petition government for redress of grievances, the freedom of the press, right against unlawful searches, and on and on.

Once one right is deemed OK to sacrifice then all others are able to get the same designation. Without the means to fight against tyranny we become slaves to government. I don’t know where I read it but someone wrote that armed societies sometimes have mass shootings but unarmed societies have mass genocide.

How true that is. Governments have murdered more people than madmen with firearms.

The Constitution places limits on government and government’s power comes from the consent of the governed.

They need to be reminded of that from time to time.
