There are 59 people dead for no good reason. Try not to lose sight of this.
As my pastor says, apart from God, man is capable of any sort of atrocity.
Predictably, the left has shown us who they are. Democrats and the #fakenews media immediately politicized the event. One CBS executive went so far as to suggest that since the shooter opened fire on a country music concert, and most country music fans are Republicans, the victims don’t deserve sympathy. (She was fired.) And there were worse things said by progressives. This sort of thinking seems to be pervasive on the left. It illustrates how soulless and godless progressives can be. What is obvious is that there is a pronounced lack of humanity on the left.
And then there are the calls for gun control. Unfortunately, facts don’t matter to liberals. Everything the shooter did was against the law. So what new law would have prevented the shooting?
Gun control only punishes law-abiding citizens, who by nature and definition are not the problem. Criminals don’t obey the law, so how are gun laws going to stop criminals? Gun control only serves to prevent citizens from defending themselves.
The left really doesn’t care about saving lives. Anyone who fervently supports Roe v. Wade cannot possibly be motivated by a desire to save lives.
Places like Chicago, where they already have gun control, are plagued by some of the highest gun-related crime rates in the country. Gun control contributes to greater crime, not the opposite.
The “blood is on their hands” argument applied to run-rights supporters like the NRA doesn’t hold water. The blood is on the hands of the shooter. Blood is also on the hands (literally) of abortionists, who are enthusiastically supported by Democrats.
Since liberals really don’t care about saving lives, per se, what is the motivation for demanding gun control? Following the modus operandi of never letting a crisis go to waste, the left is politicizing the event to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights. It’s part of their playbook. An armed citizenry is anathema to government totalitarianism. If you look back at history’s totalitarian governments, you will find an unarmed citizenry in every single case. In short, the Second Amendment makes all the others possible. The left doesn’t oppose gun rights because they want to save lives. They oppose gun rights because they oppose unfettered individual liberty.
We know the shooter wasn’t involved with militant Islam. We were told this within hours of the shooting. We can also be assured that he wasn’t a right-wing nut job, because the #fakenews media would have exposed this already. That leaves us with two options that I can think of. Either he was an enraged left-wing nut job or mentally ill. (No, they are not the same. Mental illness is treatable and liberalism isn’t.)
We are told that police and first-responders ran toward the threat, initially not knowing where the shooting was coming from. These are the same police that NFL players and BLM are protesting.
Hillary Clinton tweeted that “Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.” First, the NRA wasn’t involved in the shooting. Second it is not necessary to stand up to the NRA. The NRA exists to stand up to government. The NRA can’t take away anyone’s rights. Government can. And what is the NRA, anyway? It’s just a group of like-minded citizens who have banded together to protect their Second Amendment rights. The NRA isn’t the enemy. Politicians like Hillary Clinton are the enemy.
Many of the prominent liberal politicians and entertainers who make emotional pleas for ”getting rid of guns” are themselves are protected by guns.
There is no concern on the left for your constitutional rights. Don’t ever forget this, and don’t let some emotional, tear-filled plea by some liberal talk you out of your rights. The answer to stopping crimes and killings is NOT taking away the rights of law-abiding citizens. If you are a law-abiding citizen, the left wants to punish YOU for atrocities perpetrated by evil people.
