Disgruntled Employee Shoots 13, Kills 1 Plus Himself at Kroger in Collierville, TN…What is Happening to Us?

 

Kroger Collierville

WREG.com reports that

Multiple people were injured Thursday in a shooting inside the Kroger on Byhalia and Poplar Avenue in Collierville, a Memphis suburb, after an active shooter incident officials are calling the “most horrific event” in the town’s history.

Collierville Police Chief Dale Lane confirmed 13 people were shot, and one person killed. The suspected shooter also is dead, possibly from a self-inflicted gunshot, Lane said.

A family member and a Collierville alderman has identified one of the victims as Olivia King.

The suspect’s vehicle is still parked and is being investigated. Sources say the suspect was a sub contractor who did work in the store’s deli department.

Lane said officers entered the store just after 1:30 and found multiple people shot, and employees in hiding. He could not comment on whether the shooter was an employee, saying it was under investigation.

Lane called it “the most horrific event that’s occurred in Collierville history.”

Multiple witnesses report hearing at least a dozen shots. Some customers made it out of the store. Employees had others take shelter in the cooler, witnesses said.

One employee named Brignetta Dickerson, who says she’s worked at the Kroger for 32 years, told WREG she hid with her coworkers and several customers when they heard the gunshots.

She said her only concern was her customers and coworkers.

“I’m still in shock right now,” said Dickerson. “But I was calm. I was calm and told the customers and my co-workers ‘Just sit down and relax. You’ll be okay.’”

Jean Kurzawski said she worked in the back of the Kroger and heard noises toward the front entrance. She thought balloons were popping at first until she saw customers running. She escaped out a back exit and said she heard gunshots continuing behind her.

“I was just thinking, oh I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, he’s gonna shoot me,” she said.

Collierville High School was briefly sheltering in place.

Multiple ambulances were seen entering Regional One Hospital in Memphis. The hospital reported it saw nine patients, four in critical condition and five non-critical.

Kroger released a statement on the shooting:

We are deeply saddened by the incident that occurred at our Kroger store located on New Byhalia Rd. in Collierville, TN – a suburb of Memphis. The entire Kroger family offers our thoughts, prayers and support to the individuals and families of the victims during this difficult time. We are cooperating with local law enforcement, who have secured the store and parking lot. The store will remain closed while the police investigation continues, and we have initiated counseling services for our associates. To protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation, we are referring questions to the Collierville Police Department.

The Collierville store will remain closed until further notice, Kroger Delta Division spokeswoman Teresa Dickerson said.

“We are praying for our associates here in Collierville,” she said.

Collierville is a beautiful town right outside of Memphis, TN.

Having lived in the Memphis Area most of my life, I have high school friends who live in Collierville.

When the news came on in the break room where I work, my first thought was that one or more of them may have been in the Kroger Grocery Store when this horrible event occurred.

I immediately went to Facebook to check and, thank God, none of them were in the store at that time.

Since the shooting, word has come out and has been confirmed that a disgruntled employee was the shooter.

If gave me a horrible feeling of Deja Vu, as this was very similar to the Southaven, MS Walmart Shooting back in July of 2019 when a fired employee ambushed the Store Manager as he got out of his car as he arrived to work. The murderer set the baby area of the store on fire and then killed the grocery manager, who also had a part in his firing.

That piece of trash got burned but survived.

I am sure that over the next several days that the Powers-That-Be in Memphis will get their mugs in front of every Television News Camera that they can and holler for “Gun Control”, which will be an extremely hypocritical move being that Memphis is the Third Most Dangerous City in America.

As Democratically-controlled cities like Memphis, Chicago, and New York have found out the hard way, strict gun control laws do not work.

Outlaws will find a way to get guns. That is why they are called “outlaws”.

And the only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

Guns can not pull their own trigger.

What happened yesterday was horribly tragic.

Unfortunately, we live in a different culture than a lot of us grew up in.

When God’s Word is replaced by man’s Political Expediencies, society begins to call good “evil” and evil “good”.

And, without having a Solid Rock to stand on, society crumbles.

Until He Comes,

KJ

As Democrats Continue to Try to Defund The Police, Biden Insists That “Crime Prevention” Equals Gun Control…Totalitarianism, Anyone?

FoxNews.com reports that

President Biden in remarks Wednesday said his crime prevention strategy would focus on strengthening background checks, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and boosting community policing.

Biden met with state and local leaders and law enforcement officials ahead of his remarks to talk crime prevention strategy, amid a surge in violence in cities across the U.S.

Both Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland, who spoke before him, pointed to a historic rise in crime in the summertime, and said that rise “may be more pronounced” as the nation comes out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The White House has insisted curbing gun violence is key to tamping down a “staggering” surge of crime across the U.S.

“Talk to most responsible gun owners they’ll tell you there’s no possible justification for having 100 rounds in a magazine,” Biden said.

Biden also took aim at an argument used by Second Amendment advocates, that the right to self-defense needed to protect against potential government tyranny.

“Those who say the blood of Patriots, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government,” Biden said. “If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”

“We’re not changing the Constitution. We’re enforcing it,” the president continued.
Biden touted “zero tolerance” for gun dealers who willfully violate the law, and claimed that 90% of illegal guns found at crime scenes were traced back to 5% of gun dealers.

The “zero-tolerance” policy targets federally licensed firearms dealers who “willfully” transfer a weapon to someone prohibited from owning one or ignore a tracing request from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). The ATF would seek to revoke the dealer’s license after the first offense, a senior White House official said.

“If you willfully sell a gun to someone who’s prohibited from possessing it, if you willfully fail to run a background check, if you willfully falsify a record … my message to you is this: We’ll find you and we will seek your license to sell guns,” Biden said.

The National Rifle Association said the Biden initiative was an attempt to distract from the true causes of a rise in crime.

“This is a political red herring aimed at hiding the real and abysmal failures of the Biden administration,” NRS spokeswoman Amy Hunter told Fox News. “Crime rates are high because of the efforts to defund the police and a failure to prosecute career criminals. The simple fact is strict enforcement of existing laws – including gun laws – coupled with support of law enforcement and prosecutors to do their jobs would result in a dramatic decrease in crime. But, the president would rather play politics than make Americans safer.”

Biden also boasted of “historic funding for crime prevention” in the $350 billion for state and local governments, from the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, that can be used by cities to hire law enforcement officers, pay overtime, prosecute gun traffickers and invest in technology to make law enforcement more efficient. Officials said the Biden administration hoped cities would choose to use the money for alternatives to policing, too, and to invest in community policing models.

The administration has also taken aim at “ghost guns” and modified firearms, which are homemade firearms without serial numbers that can be used to trace them, making it difficult for law enforcement to determine where, by whom, or when they were manufactured and to whom they were sold.

The Justice Department’s ATF last month sought to update the legal definition of “firearm” in an effort to crack down on ghost guns.

Biden also pushed hiring programs to keep young people busy and off the streets during the summer months, as they’re often both the target and perpetrators of such violence. Biden said such programs encouraged youth to “pick up a paycheck instead of a pistol.”

The president said the DOJ has created five new “strike forces” to crack down on illegal gun trafficking cartels and called on the Senate to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, thereby closing the “boyfriend loophole” to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers.

During the Democratic Primary Candidates Debates last year, Candidate Joe Biden said,

“150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie (Sanders) voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability, more than all the wars, including Vietnam from that point on.”

The heavily inflated figure misrepresented gun deaths in America since 2007. From 2007 to 2017, the number of firearm deaths in the U.S. was 373,663. This number includes both violent firearm deaths and unintentional or accidental deaths, according to the Center for American Progress, an organization that promotes progressive values.

More in line with Biden’s figures, an analysis of FBI statistics by the Center found that from 2008 through 2017, more than 1.5 million aggravated assaults involved a firearm, with rates varying significantly across the states.

“If I’m elected, NRA [the National Rifle Association], I’m coming for you and gun manufacturers, I’m gonna take you on and I’m gonna beat you,” Biden said.

For years, Democrat politicians like the Dummy From Delaware have been on a crusade to pass stricter and stricter gun control laws, literally foaming at the mouth to take the right to own guns, guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, away from average law-abiding Americans.

I have always wondered why they have never attempted to get tough with those who break our laws by committing gun violence, instead of trying to take away our Constitutional Right to be able to defend ourselves.

Was it just naiveté on the part of Democrats …or something else?

And then…the Democrats built a wall around our nation’s Capitol.

And, I wondered no more.

Today’s Democrat Elite have allowed their own arrogance to blossom into totalitarianism.

Their zeal to radically change our Constitutional Republic into just another Democratic Socialist failure of a country, like those in Europe and South America, has led them to no longer wish to hear any other political opinions except their own.

The Democrats, led by the Biden-Harris Administration, through their push for continued lockdowns, expanded “Unemployment” payments, flooding our Southern Border with illegal aliens, and now, attempting to abridge our Second Amendment Rights, are employing a political strategy designed to turn America into a country whose people have restricted liberty given to them by an all-powerful Central Government, instead of by “Our Creator”.

Sound familiar?

Sure, Sleepy Joe told us yesterday that he and his fellow totalitarians are “not changing the Constitution”…”they’re enforcing it”, meaning that their going after our guns is not an abridgement of our Second Amendment Rights.

And, Germany’s National Socialist Party told the European Jews that they were simply going to be “relocated”.

The name of the game, boys and girls, is ‘CONTROL”.

Give the Democrats an inch and they will take a mile.

Those who have come before us did not give up their lives on the field of battle while preserving our liberty for us to willingly give it away to a demented doddering old fool who cannot even read a teleprompter correctly.

 Those whom we have elected to represent us in Washington MUST fight for our American Freedoms.

Or, we need to boot them out and replace them with those who will.

Until He Comes,

CMT Country Music Awards Goes “Woke”…That Ain’t Country!

Image

I miss “Hee Haw”.

FoxNews.com reports that

The Country Music Television (CMT) Music Awards are here.

The star-studded event kicked off from Nashville, Tenn., Wednesday evening with a performance by Lady A. The trio was joined onstage by Carly Pearce and Lindsay Ell.

Ell stepped in after Gabby Barrett bowed out, citing “personal circumstances.”

Cameras then took viewers to a farm where Chris Stapleton performed “Arkansas.”

Following the two performances, hosts Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini took the stage. “After this year … I’m thirsty for a great party,” Brown said.

“This is awesome. First of all, we’re back and making music people,” Kimberly Schlapman yelled, referring to the pandemic.

“I know you like drinking songs,” Karen Fairchild added.

The award was presented by Trace Adkins and Taylor Lewan of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, who poked fun at country music “lingo” by asking Adkins what a dobro, diminished fifth and bluegrass is – refuting the expert’s answers with silly jokes.

Lewan told Adkins that a diminished fifth was when a drinker has less whiskey than they expected and that a dobro is a friend who eats too much pizza.

Hailey Whitters then took the stage to sing her hit “Fillin’ My Cup.” Miranda Lambert also performed a stripped-down version of her hit “Tequila Does.” She sang around a campfire alongside Jon Randall and Jack Ingram. Luke Combs also performed.

Linda Martell, who is one of the pioneering Black acts in country music and the first Black woman to perform solo at the Grand Ole Opry, received the CMT Equal Play Award.

Comedian Iliza Shlesinger took the stage next to poke fun at country music lyrics, particularly from some of the genre’s top female artists.

She pointed out “violent” lyrics in songs from Carrie Underwood and Lambert, suggesting that a “CSI: Nashville” television show be developed based on songs like “Before He Cheats.” The remark was a reference to the long-running CBS drama “CSI” and its spinoffs, which followed crime scene investigators.

The star presented the award for collaborative video of the year, which was given to Chris Young and Brown for their tune “Famous Friends.”

The CMT Music Awards will honor acts in country music but will also share its stage with pop and R&B stars, including Gladys Knight, Pink, John Legend, Halsey, H.E.R. and Noah Cyrus.

Knight and Mickey Guyton will perform together and Stapleton and fellow guitar slayer H.E.R. are joining forces onstage at Wednesday’s show celebrating the year’s best country music videos.

Both Maren Morris and Barrett were originally set to perform at the CMT Awards but backed out.

By the way,, boys and girls.

Did y’all know that CMT encouraged their viewers to wear orange for “Gun Control”?

Needless to say, Country Music Fans, their core audience, are not complying.

SJW has now officially come to Modern “Country” Music.

The East Cost/Left Coast Power Brokers have done to Country Music exactly what they did to Classical Liberalism.

They have jettisoned Traditional American Faith and Values for a shallow hedonistic conflagration of drinkin’, cheatin’, partyin’, and Liberal Politics, changing an entire music genre into something that it never was and was never meant to be.

On this Mississippi June Morning, just a few miles away from Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley, I sit here reflecting on the influence which actual Country Music had on my young life, growing up with my Mother and Daddy.

Every family, to this day, has rituals that they observe like clockwork.

Our Saturday Night Ritual was to eat homemade hamburgers, spaghetti, or crockpot beans off of TV trays and watch “Hee Haw”, the syndicated country music variety show, out of Nashville, which starred Buck Owens, Roy Clark, and a “cast of thousands”.

The snotty folks up in the Northeast Corridor and Hollyweird never could figure out what made that “hick show”, that lasted 25 years, so popular.

After all, it was about traditional American Values, love of God and Country, respecting our American Musical Heritage, and featured talented performers who wrote songs, sang, played their own instruments, loved and appreciated their fans, and actually behaved like average Americans.

Plus, they had the good grace and common sense to keep their private lives, private.

At this time in our country’s history, when morality has become relative and ethics situational, we find our hearts crying out to hear something that will soothe our troubled souls.

Instead, we find synthesized, mass-produced Pop Music and “so-called” Country Music, actually more Pop Music, manufactured in New York City (pronounced like they did in the old Pace Salsa Commercials), advocating meaningless one-night stands and encouraging the debasement of the human soul, instead of its ability to rise above any obstacle in its path that might hinder individual achievement.

With all of today’s over-produced, under-written Pop and Country-Pop Music flooding the airwaves of both broadcast and satellite radio, Americans my age wonder where all the great Country Songwriters and Performers have gone to?

What is happening to country music reflects a lot about the culture we live in. Artists who actually lived what they sung about like Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, The Statlers, Jim Ed Brown, Porter Waggoner, Hank Williams, Jr., Randy Travis, Jeannie C. Riley, and Elvis Presley have been replaced by fashion models and wannabe rappers and rock stars.

Please don’t get me wrong.

There are still Americans performing country music. Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Clint Black, and Brooks and Dunn,  among others, are still attempting to keep the spirit of Country Music alive.

However, in our culture of fast lives, fast food, and instant gratification, superficiality sells. That’s how we got stuck for 8 long years with Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

It is easier and more profitable for a record company to sell someone who looks good and can sing a little, or to release a country music album made by a fading rock star, than it is for them to market someone who is unbelievably talented and writes their own songs, but who resembles your next door neighbor.

What the heck do Gladys Knight and John Legend have to do with Country Music?

Remember the Bruce Springsteen and Van Morrison Country Music CD fiascos?

No? I don’t blame you. I wouldn’t admit it, either.

Can you imagine Hank Williams, Sr., Patsy Cline, or Buck Owens trying to get a record deal today?

I’m sorry Mr. Williams. Your vocalization is way too twangy and you drink way too much. “I Saw The Light”? What kind of song is that? A song about redemption? Get real. “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”? Who Cares? You’re just not marketable.

Ms. Cline, we can’t use you. You look like somebody’s next door neighbor.

Mr. Owens, what is the “Bakersfield Sound” that you’re talking about? That won’t get any airtime in New York City. “Act Naturally”? That’s a song? Next thing you know, you’ll tell me that the Beatles will want to record it.

Now you know why Toby Keith formed his own record label.

The big recording companies like RCA Nashville and Arista are run like any other business. Executives are transferred from other cities and other divisions within the company and are judged to be successful by the amount of revenue they generate.

The decision was made several years ago to turn country music into pop music. Country Music started the transition from Kitty Wells to Taylor Swift and from George Jones to Kid Rock in an effort to claim a bigger share of the CD-buying public.

The disconnect arises when you take a genre that has traditionally sung about God, America, family, and heartache and try to make it about fashionistas, MTV, and shallow people with situational morality and ethics.

Just like the Liberal Politics of the outspoken harpies, the Dixie Chicks, it just doesn’t work here in America’s Heartland.

As we say in Dixie,

That dog don’t hunt.

Alan Jackson and George Strait were prophets.

Nobody saw him running from sixteenth avenue
They never found the fingerprint or the weapon that was used
But someone killed country music, cut out its heart and soul
They got away with murder down on music row

The almighty dollar and the lust for worldwide fame
Slowly killed tradition and for that someone should hang
They all say not guilty, but the evidence will show
That murder was committed down on music row

For the steel guitars no longer cry and fiddles barely play
But drums and rock ‘n’ roll guitars are mixed up in your face
Old Hank wouldn’t have a chance on today’s radio
Since they committed murder, down on music row

They thought no one would miss it, once it was dead and gone
They said no one would buy them old drinking and cheating songs
Well I’ll still buy ’em
Well there ain’t no justice in it and the hard facts are cold
Murder’s been committed, down on music row

Oh, the steel guitars no longer cry and you can’t hear fiddles play
With drums and rock ‘n roll guitars mixed right up in your face
Why, the hag, he wouldn’t have a chance on today’s radio
Since they committed murder down on music row
Why, they even tell the posse to pack up and go back home
There’s been an awful murder down on music row

“Murder on Music Row”. George Strait/Alan Jackson, 2000

Please excuse my grammar,

But, what the East and Left Coast Liberals have done to “Country Music” today, ain’t just murder.

It’s a MASSACRE.

Until He Comes,

Biden Proclaims “No Amendment is Absolute” as He Rolls Out Gun Control Measures Which He Says Do Not “Impinge” on the 2nd Amendment…Scared, Yet?

President Biden spoke in the Rose Garden of the White House with Vice President Kamala Harris and Attorney General Merrick B. Garland on Thursday.

FoxNews.com reports that

President Biden on Thursday, in rolling out a set of executive orders on gun control, said “no amendment is absolute,” while maintaining that “nothing” he is recommending “impinges” on the Second Amendment.

“Today we’re taking steps to confront not just the gun crisis, but what is actually a public health crisis,” Biden said from the White House Thursday.

“Nothing, nothing I am about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment,” the president said, calling arguments suggesting that those constitutional rights are at stake “phony.”

“No amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” he said. “You can’t yell ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater — recall a freedom of speech. From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning that the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons.”

He added: “So the idea is just bizarre, to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution.”

The president went on to call gun violence in the United States “an epidemic.”

“Let me say it again, gun violence in this country is an epidemic,” Biden said. “And it’s an international embarrassment.”

Biden announced a set of executive actions and legislative proposals on gun control Thursday.

Biden is asking that the Justice Department, within a month, propose a rule to stop “ghost guns,” which are “kits” people can buy legally then fully assemble to create a functioning firearm that does not have a serial number.

Biden is also asking the DOJ within 60 days to propose a rule on braces used for handguns, which make them more accurate; proposing action on “community violence intervention”; asking the DOJ to publish suggestions for “red flag” legislation; and having his administration issue a report on gun trafficking. 

Biden also formally announced David Chipman as the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). 

A senior administration official Wednesday said that Chipman will respect the Second Amendment while he enforces gun laws. 

The Biden administration is also expected to throw its weight behind gun control proposals in Congress. 

Here is how our Founding Fathers would have responded to the Dummy From Delaware, Joe Biden…

[T]he said Constitution [should] be never construed . . . to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms. Samuel Adams, Signer of the Declaration, “Father of the American Revolution” 

The right . . . of bearing arms . . . is declared to be inherent in the people. Fisher Ames, A Framer of the Second Amendment in the First Congress 

[T]he advantage of being armed [is an advantage which] the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . . [I]n the several kingdoms of Europe . . . the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. James Madison, U.S. President, Signer of the Constitution, a Framer of the Second Amendment in the first congress

[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them. Richard Henry Lee, Signer of the Declaration, A Framer of the Second Amendment in the First Congress 

Democrats like Biden believe that the Constitution is a “fluid” document, subject to change to fit the political ideology of those who happen to be the majority party, presiding over the Executive and Legislative Branches of our Federal Government at the time.

That is where they are wrong…and they know it…but, they do not care, as evidenced by the bullying and didactic tone which Biden took during his Royal Proclamation yesterday.

The Constitution was written by brilliant men who foresaw the possibility of a minority of tyrants attempting to take over and change our Constitutional Republic into a tyrannical form of government, such as they left behind in Europe.

And, that, boys and girls, after hearing President Joe Biden threaten the Second Amendment, appears to be exactly what the Democrats want for the future of our Sovereign Nation and our children and grandchildren.

By proclaiming, like a monarch, that “no amendment is absolute”, Biden has warned us that changing the Second Amendment of OUR Constitution, a part of OUR Bill of Rights, is a very real possibility, if he can get the “Fools on the Hill”, otherwise known as Congress, to go along with it.

And, if that happens, what is to stop them from “radically changing” the First Amendment, as well?

And, God forbid, if all of that happens, our Constitutional Republic will no longer exist and America will be just another failed Democratic Socialist Third World Barrio, instead of “The Shining City Up On A Hill”.

It is time to “put on the whole Armor of God”, to pray, and to call our Representatives in Washington and tell them that We The People will not stand for this…and if they want to keep their jobs they had better start fighting against this “Russian Revolution II” and the unwanted revision of OUR Constitution.

Or they are going to be out of a job.

God protect us.

Until He Comes,

Biden to Announce Gun Control Executive Orders and Legislation Today…What 2nd Amendment?

FoxNews.com reports that

President Biden will announce gun control measures on Thursday that an administration official described as an initial set of actions aimed at addressing all forms of gun violence.

The president will detail several initiatives to be achieved through a mix of executive and legislative action, the official told reporters.

Biden will call on the Department of Justice to issue proposed rules to stop the proliferation of so-called “ghost guns” within 30 days. Ghost guns refer to kits that allow the recipient to assemble the firearm using provided parts. These guns do not have commercial serial numbers and are difficult to track.

The Justice Department will be given 60 days to issue a separate rule on stabilizing braces, which can turn a pistol into a more accurate weapon that fires like a rifle. Sixty days will also be provided for the DOJ to develop model “red flag” legislation that would allow friends and family members to identify an individual as a potential danger, thereby temporarily preventing the person from accessing a firearm.

The president will also highlight the steps his administration is taking to invest in community violence interventions and call on the DOJ to issue a firearms trafficking report.

The administration official said while Biden will call on Congress to act – including on closing loopholes in the background check system – he will not wait.

“Gun violence takes lives and leaves a lasting legacy of trauma in communities every single day in this country, even when it is not on the nightly news,” the White House said in a statement.

The administration official told reporters on Wednesday that Biden is concerned about all forms of gun violence, not only mass shootings but also domestic violence and forms of community violence that disproportionately affect Black and Brown communities.

Biden’s actions follow three recent mass shootings, and the administration official suggested there could be additional actions in the weeks and months to come.

Chipman, who is a gun owner himself, has said he backs regulations that save lives but do not take firearms away from law-abiding citizens.

The administration official confirmed on Wednesday night that Chipman was selected to enforce gun laws while also respecting Second Amendment rights.

ATF is a law enforcement agency within the Department of Justice that strives to safeguard the public from criminal organizations and activity, including the illegal use and trafficking of firearms.

During the Democratic Primary Candidates Debates last year, Candidate Joe Biden said,

“150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie (Sanders) voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability, more than all the wars, including Vietnam from that point on.”

The heavily inflated figure misrepresented gun deaths in America since 2007. From 2007 to 2017, the number of firearm deaths in the U.S. was 373,663.

And, Germany’s National Socialist Party told the European Jews that they were simply going to be “relocated”.

The name of the game, boys and girls, is ‘CONTROL”.

Give the Democrats an inch and they will take a mile.

Those who have come before us did not give up their lives on the field of battle while preserving our liberty for us to willingly give it away to a demented doddering old fool issuing Executive Orders written by his Handlers.

 Those whom we have elected to represent us in Washington MUST fight for our American Freedoms.

Or, we need to boot them out and replace them with those who will.

Biden to Implement an Executive Order on Gun Control Within a Week

See the source image

FoxNews.com reports that

President Biden is considering executive action on gun control in the wake of two mass shootings in less than a week, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday.

Psaki did not specify what action Biden might take.

“We are considering a range of levers, including working through legislation, including executive action,” Psaki told reporters. “That has been under discussion and will continue to be under discussion.”

Biden, addressing the shooting that occurred in Boulder, Colo., and that left 10 dead, said Tuesday he didn’t “want to wait another minute, let alone an hour” to act on gun violence. A shooting six days earlier left eight dead in Atlanta, Georgia.

He didn’t mention potential executive action but implored the Senate to pass a series of House bills that would close loopholes in background checks. He also urged Congress to ban “assault weapons.”

“I got that done as a senator. It brought down mass shootings, we can do it again,” Biden said during remarks at the White House. “We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country once again.”

“These are bills that received votes with both Republicans and Democrats in the House. This is not and should not be a partisan issue. This is an American issue that will save lives, American lives. And we have to act. We should also ban assault weapons in the process,” Biden said.

The House passed two bills this month to tighten gun control, one that would give authorities 10 business days instead of three to complete a background check before a gun sale. Under current law, gun sales can proceed if a background check takes longer than three days, what’s known as the “Charleston Loophole.” That bill passed 219-210 with only two Republicans supporting it.

Another bill would expand background check requirements to guns bought over the internet, at gun shows or through other private transactions. Eight Republicans joined Democrats in backing the bill.

The Senate would need to garner support from 10 Republicans to clear the filibuster and pass the legislation.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday he hasn’t spoken without the White House about an assault weapons ban. Such a ban is not part of the pair of House bills that passed earlier this month.

Gun control experts told Fox News last month that Biden could tighten gun control without Congress by using his authority to limit trade.

This is another reason why there is a fence around the Capitol Building and the White House,

Biden, his Handlers and Democrat Elite don’t give a rat’s rear what you and I believe.

And, they don’t care what our Constitution says, either.

The Democrats’ never-ending quest for “Gun Control”, if successful, would only succeed in controlling law-abiding American Citizens, instead of punishing those who operate outside of our laws, such as the Virginia Beach shooter, DeWayne Braddock,  Parkland High School Mass Murderer Nikolas Cruz, the thugs who have turned Former President Obama’s “hometown” of Chicago and my hometown of Memphis into their own personal “Killing Fields”, the Marxist Anarchists who are destroying our major cities and shooting at those who serve and protect us, and now, this Syrian Islamic Extremist (yeah,  said it) who slaughtered innocent Americans and a brave police officer in a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado.

The leader of the bloody Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, once wrote that

One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

If the Democrats had their way, we would live in a country under the oppression of restrictive gun laws, which would be modeled after those in Europe. And, as past events have plainly shown, those restrictive gun laws have allowed Islamic Terrorists and other murderous nut jobs to kill innocent people unchallenged, because none of those innocent people were allowed to carry a weapon with which to defend themselves.

In fact, in some cases, even the police officers, who first arrived on the scene, were unarmed, and had to call for additional forces, thus giving the perpetrators more time to murder and maim the innocent.

One of our Founding Fathers, Dr. Benjamin Franklin, once wrote,

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

Like Dr. Franklin and the rest of those who have fought for our freedom, average Americans realize what Democrats do not.

The problem in stopping mass murders and other shooting deaths from happening is not that there are not enough gun laws. The problem is the gun laws on the books are not properly enforced.

The dissolution of the Family Unit, the revolving door state of our Municipal Justice Systems, and, as in the case of DeWayne Braddock,  Nikolas Cruz, and Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, the lack of recognition and treatment of the mentally ill and wannabe Terrorists and Marxist Anarchists, has a lot to do with the rise of these horrible massacres in America and the horrible violence which plagues cities like Chicago and Memphis..

What Liberals have never understood, in their continuous quest to take away the Second Amendment rights of average Americans, is that we will never surrender our Constitutional Right to defend ourselves and our families from enemies foreign and domestic.

What part of the words “shall not be infringed” do you Liberals not understand?

Passing more restrictive gun laws is not the answer.

Criminals are called “outlaws” for a reason.

They will find a way to get guns. They do now.

I agree with what Former President Trump said when Candidate Biden brought up Gun Control: “Hit the animals hard”.

This is a people problem. Not a gun problem.

After all, have you ever seen a gun pull its own trigger?

Democrats Introducing “Assault Weapons Bans” ( i.e., Gun Control Laws) in Both House and Senate

See the source image

FoxNews.com reports that

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., each introduced an “assault weapons” ban in their chamber on Thursday amid a “rise in domestic terrorism,” in Feinstein’s words.

“It’s been 17 years since the original Assault Weapons Ban expired,” Feinstein said in a statement. “When it was in place from 1994-2004, gun massacres declined by 37% compared with the decade before. After the ban expired, the number of massacres rose by 183%. We’re now seeing a rise in domestic terrorism, and military-style assault weapons are increasingly becoming the guns of choice for these dangerous groups.”

The bill would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer, and importation of more than 200 “military-style assault weapons” identified by name, although owners would be allowed to keep existing weapons. The bill would also require background checks on any future purchases, trades or gifting of an assault weapon included in the bill.

Feinstein and Cicilline referenced the Dayton, Ohio, shooting that left nine people dead in 2019. The shooter had a 100-round magazine.

“Assault weapons are designed for a single purpose – to kill as many people as possible in as short an amount of time as possible. That’s why they are the weapon of choice for mass shooters and domestic terrorists. They are weapons of war and do not belong in our communities,” Cicilline said in a statement.

The proposed ban would ban magazines and other ammunition feeding devices able to hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, but owners would be allowed to keep existing magazines.

The ban has the support of numerous Democratic lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, as well as Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

The Democrats’ never-ending quest for “Gun Control”, if successful, would only succeed in controlling law-abiding American Citizens, instead of punishing those who operate outside of our laws, such as the Virginia Beach shooter, DeWayne Braddock,  Parkland High School Mass Murderer Nikolas Cruz, the thugs who have turned Former President Obama’s “hometown” of Chicago and my hometown of Memphis into their own personal “Killing Fields” and now, the Marxist Anarchists who are destroying our major cities and shooting at those who serve and protect us.

After “Protester” shoots two L.A. Cops, Biden calls for Gun Control, Trump Calls For a “Fast Trial”

FoxNews.com reports that

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday called for gun control less than 24 hours after two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies who were critically wounded in Compton after a gunman opened fire on their squad car in an apparent ambush.

“Weapons of war have no place in our communities,” the former Vice President tweeted. “We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”

Earlier Biden had called the shooting “unconscionable” and for the suspect to be brought to justice. He also said anyone who commits an act of violence “should be caught and punished.”

Biden’s comments on the ambush and gun control stand in stark contrast to President Donald Trump who called for a “fast trial” with the possibility of the death penalty.

“Animals that must be hit hard!” Trump tweeted, referring to criminals who target law enforcement.

“If [the deputies] die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this!” Trump later wrote.

The president continued to attack his Democratic rival on Sunday, calling for tougher criminal sentencing guidelines and faster courts.

Speaking at a roundtable campaign event in Las Vegas, Trump used Saturday night’s ambush to highlight his campaign’s “law and order” while casting Biden as weak on crime.

“He’s not strong for law and order and everybody knows that,” Trump said of Biden during at a “Latinos for Trump” event. “When you see a scene like happened just last night in California with the two police people – a woman, a man – shot at stone cold short range.”

The 31-year-old female deputy and 24-year-old male deputy underwent surgery Saturday evening and were listed as in “critical” condition. A manhunt for the suspect was still underway on Sunday.

Joe Biden and the rest of the Democrats’ never-ending quest for “Gun Control”, if successful, would only succeed in controlling law-abiding American Citizens, instead of punishing those who operate outside of our laws, such as the Virginia Beach shooter, DeWayne Braddock,  Parkland High School Mass Murderer Nikolas Cruz, the thugs who have turned Former President Obama’s “hometown” of Chicago and my hometown of Memphis into their own personal “Killing Fields” and now, the Marxist Anarchists who are destroying our major cities and shooting those who serve and protect us.

Biden at Dem Debate on Gun Deaths: “150 Million People Have Been Killed Since 2007″…Go Home, Joe…You’re Not Well

joe-biden-sc-debate-feb25-2020-getty-images

It is horrible to watch a well-known person mentally slipping away right in front of your very eyes

FoxNews.com reports that

Former vice president Joe Biden went after the voting record of Democratic front-runner Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on the debate stage Tuesday night, slamming Sanders for supporting legislation that gave gun manufacturers absolute immunity from liability for gun violence, but in doing so, Biden grossly overstated the number of gun deaths since the 2007 law passed.

Biden, who says he is confident that he will sweep the lead in South Carolina’s primaries just days away — despite crushing losses behind Sanders in the three previous early voting states– lambasted Sanders’ record on gun control, particularly his vote in support of a law that protects firearms manufacturers from being held liable when gun violence and crimes are perpetrated. Sanders later disavowed the legislation in 2016.

“Imagine if I stood here and said we give immunity to drug companies, we give immunity to tobacco companies. That has caused carnage on our streets,” Biden said. “150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability, more than all the wars, including Vietnam from that point on.”

The heavily inflated figure misrepresented gun deaths in America since 2007. From 2007 to 2017, the number of firearm deaths in the U.S. was 373,663. This number includes both violent firearm deaths and unintentional or accidental deaths, according to the Center for American Progress, an organization that promotes progressive values.

More in line with Biden’s figures, an analysis of FBI statistics by the Center found that from 2008 through 2017, more than 1.5 million aggravated assaults involved a firearm, with rates varying significantly across the states.

“I have cast thousands of votes, including bad votes. That was a bad vote,” Sanders said in defense on Tuesday night.

“If I’m elected, NRA [the National Rifle Association], I’m coming for you and gun manufacturers, I’m gonna take you on and I’m gonna beat you,” Biden said.

Speaking alongside six other Democratic contenders vying for the presidential nomination, Biden insisted he is the only candidate who can push major gun legislation through Congress if elected.

He boasted that while serving in the Senate, he backed the assault weapons ban that stipulated magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition be eliminated, which was not reauthorized after its sunset provision that expired in September 2004.

Biden also helped pass the Brady Bill in 1994, which mandated federal background checks on firearm purchasers in the United States and imposed a five-day waiting period on purchases.

Sleepy Joe Biden is obviously not well.

Just the other day he asked South Carolinians to vote for him in his run for the U.S. Senate.

He also recently said that his deceased son was the Former Attorney General of the United States of America.

Most of the time he doesn’t not seem to know where he is or which side of the stage to face.

And, according to Rush Limbaugh, speaking on his radio program yesterday,

Plugs claimed last night that he worked with the Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris climate accord. Well, Deng Xiaoping has been dead, room temperature, for 20 years. Deng Xiaoping is not the head honcho of the Chi-Coms. The head honcho of the ChiComs is a guy named Xi Jinping, and he’s becoming Mao Tse-tung Jr., becoming a total authoritarian. It’s why Crazy Bernie loves this guy.

And Crazy Bernie’s out saying nobody has raised the percentage of people out of poverty like the ChiComs have. What a crock. My God, this guy’s dangerous. He’s a crotchety, funny looking guy, but he’s dangerous. But poor Plugs claiming he worked with Deng Xiaoping on the Paris climate accord. The Chinese have nothing to do with the Paris climate accord anyway, except to go up and go (raspberry) we’re not playing. Deng Xiaoping left office in 1992. Deng Xiaoping was not even present when Plugs was vice president.

And then, did you hear about this? Plugs said he got arrested trying to greet Nelson Mandela as he was coming out of jail on Robben Island. “Yes, I was in Soweto! I was running around Soweto trying to avoid being necklaced, and I got arrested! I got arrested trying to meet Nelson Mandela.” Joe Biden was not in Africa when Mandela was released from Robben Island. (sigh)

I understand why the Democratic Elite are allowing Biden to stay in the race.

Bloomberg, the last-minute “savior” has all of the charisma of a ceramic turtle.

At least, Sleepy Joe has some fire in the belly.

Unfortunately for the Dems, he also has bats in his belfry.

So, he does not have a chance of stopping Bernie Sanders.

All the Former Vice President is doing is embarrassing himself, which is awfully hard to do, as he was no brain surgeon to begin with.

Last night’s Democratic Debate had all of the political effectiveness and decorum of a Three Stooges pie fight. (Hey, Moe!)

The Democratic Party’s embracing of “Democratic Socialism” (i.e., MARXISM) and the Far Left of the political spectrum has led them to the edge of a 2020 Presidential Election Political Tsunami, which just like the Great White Whale of Herman Melville’s novel “Moby Dick” will drag all of the TDS-obsessed Captain Ahabs of the Democrat Party down into an oceanic abyss which will take them years to crawl back out of.

And, it couldn’t happen to a “nicer” bunch.

Tensions Running High Ahead of Today’s Richmond Gun-Rights Rally as Average Americans Stand Up for Their 2nd Amendment Rights

richmond-braces-for-enormous-gun-rights-rally-monday-the-washington-post

“You won’t get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. There’s only one way to get real gun control: Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up and if you don’t actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time… It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun controllers. I happen to know this from personal experience.” – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

Threats of violence, including claims of a militia storming Virginia’s Capitol and protesters weaponizing drones, have put federal and state authorities on high alert ahead of Monday’s gun-rights rally.

Thousands of people across the country are expected to show up as part of a demonstration demanding state Democrats drop a push for comprehensive gun control in the commonwealth.

The fear of violence has spread quickly and has led to heightened security, road closures and a ban on firearms in the Capitol and on its grounds. An event memorializing victims of gun violence, including one honoring the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., was canceled due to safety concerns. The Federal Aviation Administration has banned drones within a 2-mile radius of the Capitol and nearby students at VCU and the Medical College of Virginia have been encouraged to stay indoors.

Virginia Citizens Defense League President Philip Van Cleave told Fox News it’s not the pro-gun groups that are stoking fear.

“It’s the Democrats,” he said. “It’s almost like they want something to happen. It sounds crazy, but they keep doing it and you have to start wondering if that’s intentional.”

Cleave said membership in his organization has tripled in the past six weeks and that 10,000 people have signed up for free email alerts. He attributes the spike in popularity to Gov. Ralph Northam and Democrats in the state legislature. Van Cleave believes they have “declared war on gun owners” and is counting on gun-rights advocates to show up Monday to have their collective voices heard.

Jaylynne Sensy, a mother of three from Chesterfield County, told Fox News she’s planning on coming to the rally and bringing her three children with her.

“They’re trying to take our guns and that’s not going to happen,” she said. “We won’t stand for it. This wouldn’t happen if Republicans were still running things.”

In November, Democrats flipped the state Senate and the House of Delegates, giving them control of both the governor’s office and the legislature for the first time in a generation.

Following his reelection, Northam vowed to push through new gun-control measures, saying it was a top priority for Virginia Democrats. In doing so, he angered gun-rights advocates who believe he is trying to take away their rights.

That suspicion was fueled further on Friday when President Trump warned in a tweet that Virginia Democrats were threatening Americans’ right to bear arms.

“Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!” he tweeted.

Last week, four gun-control bills advanced in the General Assembly, setting the stage for a contentious showdown between gun-rights advocates and the Democratic lawmakers who campaigned on bringing changes to the state following last year’s mass shooting at a Virginia Beach municipal complex.

The bills that sailed through the Senate Judiciary Committee would require background checks on all firearms purchases, allow law enforcement to temporarily remove guns from people deemed to be a risk to themselves or others, limit handgun purchases to one a month and let localities decide on whether to ban weapons from certain events. To become law, the bills would have to pass the full Senate and the House of Delegates before going to the governor for his signature.

In a symbolic sign of defiance, more than 100 municipalities in Virginia have designated themselves as a safe haven or sanctuary for the Second Amendment. Lawmakers and authorities in those areas have said they will refuse to enforce new gun control laws the Virginia Legislature passes.

Using the fear of another Charlottesville, Gov. Northam has declared a state of emergency. He has also banned firearms and other weapons on the Capitol grounds.

All of the conversation and news reports about today’s rally made me remember last September when Former Democratic Primary Candidate Patrick “Beto” O’Rourke inadvertently admitted to Americans that Democrats were indeed going to come after our guns.

As has been demonstrated to us over the last few decades, Democrats are indeed going to continue to come after the guns of law-abiding American Citizens whether they take back the power of the Presidency in 2020 or not.

The Democrats have danced around the truth for years now, parsing words while speaking vaguely about “Gun Control”, while enticing school children to walk out of schools to help facilitate acceptance of a “benevolent” bunch of “Democratic Socialists” violating one of Americans’ Constitutional Rights.

As any American with any common sense whatsoever will tell you, the purpose of “Gun Control” IS control.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, regarding the right of Americans to bear arms, was more than just a statement written in a document long ago by our Founding Fathers.

It was an admonition.

By now, gentle readers, I hope that you have taken stock of the fact that every single time that there is a mass murder in our Sovereign Nation, before the smoke even clears, Democrat Pundits, both professional and amateur, start drooling from their pursed lips in an ecstatic frenzy to be the first to call for “Gun Control”.

It is not, regardless of what the Dems say repeatedly when these tragedies happen, “for the children”.

Oh, no.

If Liberal Democrats were so concerned about America’s children, America would not be witnessing the yanking of children from their mothers’ wombs at the rate of 1,000,000 abortions every year.

And, it is an ultimate height of Liberal Hypocrisy that Gov. Northam and the Virginia Democrats are championing full-term abortion while claiming that they want to enact “Gun Control to “save lives”.

Make no mistake. Gun control is no more a Democratic Mantra spoken out of concern for the welfare of Americans than Nancy Pelosi is in full control of her mental faculties.

Vladimir Lenin, the Communist Leader of the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks during the Russian Revolution, stated that

“One man with a gun can control 100 men without one.”

Just as during the Russian Revolution, our modern-day Bolsheviks and Mensheviks, whom we call Millenials and Progressives, seem to blindly follow as one the notion that more control somehow means more freedom.

Little do those who are being “sponsored” to march for Gun Control realize that they are being led over a cliff like the herd of lemmings which my generation used to watch in school in those Walt Disney True Life Adventure Movies.

Just as Lenin played upon his followers’ emotions, so are the Democrats manipulating “useful idiots” for their own political purposes.

As Mr. Andrew Pollack, the father of Parkland shooting victim, Meadow Pollack has said, the Democrats do not care about

“…underlying causes for these shootings….They’re not addressing mental health…or arresting these people when they make threats…those are the real issues…”

And, God bless him, he is exactly right.

Guns cannot shoot themselves.

As one of our Founding Fathers, Dr. Benjamin Franklin, once wrote,

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

That is why it is so important for average Americans to continue to stand up for our Second Amendment Rights.

Our freedom, national and individual, is at stake.

As another Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson wrote

The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.
