Is Mass Murder a Fault or a Feature of Gun-Control?

gun control

We had three mass murders here in the US during the last two weeks. The victims were attacked in “gun-free” zones where they could not defend themselves. With frightening consistency, gun-control advocates called for more of the same. ‘Gun-control failed, so we need more gun control,’ they said. Are these failures of gun-control accidental, or are these mass murders useful tools for Democrat politicians and the mass media? The facts speak for themselves.

One of these attacks was in Gilroy, California. Gilroy is the pinnacle of gun-control in the United States. California is given an “A” rating for gun-control laws by the Giffords gun-control group. California is also ranked first in the nation for gun-control, so nobody does it better. California imposed magazine capacity limits that were supposed to keep us safe from mass murderers. California has one-gun-a-month laws that we were told would keep us safe from crazy murderers. California has red-flag-laws and age restrictions on honest gun owners. In fact, most of the people at the festival in Gilroy are routinely disarmed in public since concealed carry licenses aren’t routinely issued in Santa Clara County. In addition, the Gilroy Garlic Festival was a “gun-free” zone, so the few concealed carry license holders in California were turned away. Visitors were even wanded, so there were no knives allowed at the festival. We were told that the police would keep us safe now that we are disarmed.

The murderer entered the festival by cutting through a chain-link fence. An $8 bolt cutter defeated the best security that California politicians can provide. With three people dead and 15 disarmed people wounded, California politicians immediately called for more of the same. The same state that has open borders and open drug markets says that gun-prohibition laws will keep criminals from having guns and hurting us. The evidence says otherwise.

With the failure of 22 thousand firearms regulations, the best the gun-control politicians could do was say the next line of ink on paper would somehow be different.

California politicians proposed to outlaw semi-automatic firearms. Well..sort of. There will be exceptions for police and the security details who protect the families of politicians. This ban is also a bad idea for other reasons. Note that the ban would disarm licensed concealed carry holders. These gun owners are some six times more law-abiding than the police. When they do have to use their gun in self-defense, these licensed gun owners are about five times more accurate than the police. Politicians say we’ll be safer once they are disarmed and only the police have guns..just like we were in Gilroy, California.

The mass media and anti-rights politicians use mass murder as an excuse to call for more of the policies that failed. Those failures get us killed.

The murderer in El Paso attacked a gun-free mall. The murderer in Dayton attacked a nightclub area where many gun owners go disarmed. When the murderer’s politics are unknown, the media speculates and blames President Trump and the honest gun owners. When the murder actually puts out a Socialist manifesto, then the media says they don’t have enough facts to reach a conclusion about the murderer’s motive. The media blindness goes so far as to ignore the “mass murder” that happens every weekend in our Democrat-controlled cities. The media also remains silent about the virtue of armed defense despite the millions of cases in the US every year where honest gun owners save lives. No wonder we don’t trust CNN.

With its sensationalized reporting of mass murders, the media does more harm than good.

We had to coin a new term called “celebrity murderers”. These mass murderers kill to get their name in the paper. Unfortunately, it works, and a billion dollars of publicity brought us more murderers time after time. We’ve had over 88 attempted and actual murder cases where we know the attackers modeled their behavior on the murderers at Columbine High School. These crazy murderers want recognition, and the media is their tool to become an instant rock star. Rather than blame themselves for the next murders, the media and gun-control politicians blame honest gun owners.

Shame on the dishonest media and politicians for telling such lies. Shame on us for believing them.

  1. Every action is preceded by the THOUGHT of the action.
    No one brings up the FACT that these are the Media Assault Movie Makers that TEACH violence?
    NO more guns in any movies. No swords, spears, clubs, or axes.
    These “pious” actors are all about “righteousness” Chinese characters HAVE to be played by Chinese actors , Black characters HAVE to be played by Black actors , then —- NO actor shall be allowed to pick up a weapon if they are not NRA members or Military Veterans. Also all weapons MUST be handled in a safe and proper method as approved by NRA and Military training.
    Notice that the most violent movies are ALWAYS the ones with Afleck, Clooney, Damon, DiCaprio, Gyllenhaal, and Pitt in them? They yammer on about conservatives and “their guns” while making the most senselessly violent flicks.
    Coming from an industry that thrives on guns. If a 30 second commercial sells things the best commercials are the thousands of hours of guns in movies. Thanks Hollywood!!
    Universal Pictures film executives have reportedly pulled ads for an upcoming horror film, “The Hunt,” which centers on a retreat for rich, elite liberals to physically hunt “deplorables” for sport. According to The Hollywood Reporter, executives decided to pull advertisements for the film in the wake of the deadly mass killings that took place in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
    Are these “courageous” play actors going to refuse to make anymore picture shows with guns, lazer swords, arrows, or any other form of violence? No more smashing or bashing ….. NO VIOLENCE in any of Their work? No more profiting off gratuitous violence?
    It is the MSM pushing the IDEA of consequence free violence that is the cause of the bloodshed.
    MEDIA-ASSAULT-THOUGHTS. There is no action that is not preceded by the thought and idea of the action, and MSM has immersed America in violent anti-social thoughts. and been publicly proud and boastful of their ANTI-heroes. The immersion of a society in the thoughts and ideas of senseless violence unaccompanied by consequences. The flooding of Media venues such as music, movies, video games, TV, with thoughts and ideas designed to induce violent behavior. If purveying ideas through the media does not work ….. why are $BILLIONS spent every year on advertising and political propaganda if spreading “thoughts” does not matter?!?!

  2. The media/social media/alt media, work with the gov to pull off Psyop/orchestrated shootings, whether anybody dies or not. FOX announced the El Paso shooting 20 minutes before it happened. Shooter Patrick Crusius’s MyLife page after Saturday shooting from Democrat to Republican. Crisis actors are seen taking directions from a man in a red shirt…one shooter is directly connected to the CIA. None of this dystopia could happen with an honest media. None of this was reported in the dishonest media. Why doesn’t Congress investigate Soros? Crisis Actor companies? Obama’s treasonous and anti-American behavior? DNC collusion with meddling in the 2016 election? Ponzi scheme Wall Street? The Clinton Crime family? Remember Epstein? Is he in Dubai yet?

    ‘The world ordered by the Jews, is a Hell for Aryans.’ (Céline, Trifles for a Massacre, page 233; the book was written and published before World War Two, so his words were quite prophetic.)

    “The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al-Qaeda, and any informed intelligence officer knows this. But, there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an intensified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive TV watchers to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the United States.” – Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook

    “I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to them. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would RISE UP IN ARMS. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on” —Thomas H. Moorer, (1912 – 2004), Admiral, US Navy & Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff during interview on 24 August 1983.

    The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd amendment. – Cooper, Milton William. (1991). “Behold a Pale Horse”, Light Technology Publications, page 225

    And what do they give us as a solution? Exterminate white people under the false paradigm White Supremacy? The media has always been fake and their attempt to blame the world’s misery on white people, not only today…but yesterday is pure BS. The world is owned and controlled by a small tribe and the supremacy is jewish, not white. Whoever pays the piper, calls the tune. This is a direct result of fighting on the wrong side of both world wars.

    Washington is a clown show, meant to keep us distracted with hoaxes, Hollywood CGI and Psyops…all the while our treasonous Congress slowly transitions us into a Hunger Games style communist state, based on commerce and no borders. These mass shootings are not random…they are tools of convenience, carried out by our own gov. Do you really think we can’t stop people at the border? That we can’t defeat the Taliban? They create the problem, check the response and give us their solution, which almost always means less liberty.

    Does it matter that Trump’s son in law is a member of the Chabad Lubavitch/Khazarian Mafia? How about Putin and Netanyahu? That all govs are under ZOG control? Yes it matters. We are headed toward mass genocide of the world of non jews, so that the globalists can have their utopia, minus all those useless eaters.

    Voting won’t change a thing, we need a complete reboot and the possibilities of that is close to impossible…that’s why they need our guns.
