When it comes to Isis, Obama says it’s not really about guns – it’s primarily about ideologies. However, when it comes to active shooters in America, Obama says it’s not really about ideologies – it’s primarily about guns. Really? Time to get on point Mr. President! In both cases, guns are the primary issue. Furthermore, in both cases, “more guns” is part of the solution to such violence.
Sensible gun laws are something all of us agree with. Truth is, the legislation that POTUS and the left talk about won’t do anything to stop the next active shooter. Of course, POTUS loves to opine as if he’s an expert in matters of gun violence, but his rhetoric begs the question; “who are the experts on gun violence? Academics? Psychologists? Pastors?” Sure, they can each bring a perspective to the table, but when you really get down to it, soldiers and marines are the real experts on gun violence. Ask any general, any paratrooper, any marine; “Is ‘more guns’ an adequate response to violent people with guns?” Answer, “You bet.” When it comes to stopping violent people, more guns always works well. Just watch the way Putin is going to handle the situation in Syria (I’ll resist saying more as this is the topic for our next blog). Liberal response—eye roll followed by a condescending comment like, “Oh… that’s nonsense.” Response to the liberal response, “Saying that’s nonsense is nonsense!”
If every classroom had three or four, salt-of-the-earth, hunt-every-season, concealed-carry-boys (and/or girls), then active shooters would do far less damage. In places where concealed carry is allowed, it’s likely that most active shooters would be capped as soon as they pulled out a weapon and started running their mouths. For this reason, active shooters go to soft target areas also known as “gun-free-zones.” Wake up America! If there is any lesson that should be learned from these unfortunate events, it’s a lesson that the left needs to learn, namely, gun-free-zones are not safe-zones!!! Rather, they’re hope-you-can-run-and-hide-zones. As has often been said, “When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.” The time is coming when reasonable people will no longer listen to the left’s “almighty government” mantra. Government can’t protect you in situations like these. In situations like these, if you ask me to choose between trusting the U.S. Government or trusting God and guns… I’m going with God and guns every time!
Lastly, liberal Christians usually come unhinged by such comments. That’s fine! Let’s double down and go at the heart of the argument. Liberals are proud of the “civility” of Planned Parenthood, but embarrassed by gun ownership in America. Liberals are OK with dismembering babies in order to make a profit, but they’re uneasy with the average American citizen being armed in order to help defend the public from violent criminals and deranged active shooters. And one more… liberals will not politicize Planned Parenthood, but they will politicize gun ownership. During his comments on the Oregon tragedy, POTUS threw out a challenge to “tally up the number of Americans who’ve been killed by terrorist attacks over the last decade and the number of Americans who’ve been killed by gun violence, and post those side by side…” I’ll raise you one Mr. President (and NBC), tally up the number of Americans who’ve been killed by gun violence in the last decade, and the number of Americans who’ve been killed by Planned Parenthood!!!
Americans killed by terrorism 2001-2014 (according to the attached NBC article) – 3,046
Americans killed by Gun Violence from 2001-2013 (according to the attached NBC article) – 153,144
Americans killed by Planned Parenthood in a decade — 5, 160,000*
*According to the Planned Parenthood website, “Planned Parenthood services help prevent approximately 516,000 unintended pregnancies each year.” You better believe, “Each time this happens, I’m going to bring this up!”
Sadly, there are so many people in the Church, and I assumed who are Saved, but they fall back on this worn out retort of, “Well the Lord is coming any time now, so there is no reason for us to do anything.” This is what is killing us – the non-interest because they believe God will rescue them before the One World Government is set up.
The need to study their world history. They will find out that Christians in Germany thought the same thing, then the next thing they knew, Hitler was in power and Christians who dared to speak out were being persecuted if not killed.
Christians in America are the most spoiled group of people who have ever lived. If you want to lose a friendship, then began a discussion about how bad things are, and next thing you know, you are no longer invited to join the “clique” to go out to eat after Church on Sunday Morning.
I pray that Jesus will return soon, or I guess I should say I pray that the Rapture will happen any day! I’m ready to go. I’m tired of arguing with fellow Christians about how the persecution is coming to American!
You all have your heads up your butt. Don’t like that do you ? While we go around and around and around, on spin this spin that , new standards are destroying our children in our local school. The students today are not learning about an America to protect. Raise a child that can’t read comprehensively , write with substance, that is divided on Sex, Race, Faith etc…etc. Then you have citizens that will roll over when told to. Do they learn to vote, about jury duty, about Grand Juries. How about check and balances of the Constitution.The future of what ever the definition of patriots are today, are being formed now as we speak, Change your local corporate, money wasting school and Cleveland County will start to improve. If every county will wake up America will change also. Visit Fixourschools2015.com this is not a election ad, I don’t want a single vote, I want you to learn where our school is headed and get involved. Sheriff Norman is not coming for your guns. Our City Police Chiefs are not coming for your guns. Bill Gates and his cohort are coming for your children !
I felt bad, after I posted the last time. I must apologize to many. There were probably 400+ people at the School Board meeting tonight, who’s heads and voices were heard. Your Pastors voice was one, strong God guided voice that we heard, You folks are blessed to be represented by this man. Thank you Rit.
