Many in the media and political spheres, including President Barack Obama, have used Wednesday’s tragic mass-shooting at Emanuel AME Church in South Carolina to push for further restrictions on gun ownership. But radio host and Second Amendment warrior Dana Loesch has revealed that under current South Carolina law, shooter Dylann Roof was already ineligible to purchase or carry a firearm due to a previous felony conviction and would have failed a background check.
Loesch reports on her website that:
Roof was charged with felony possession in February, 2015:
According to South Carolina court documents exclusively obtained by Radar, Roof, 21, was arrested in Lexington County on felony charges of possession of cocaine, methamphetamine and LSD on February 28, 2015.
This alone disqualified him from legal carry and purchase of a firearm. In South Carolina, you only have to be charged with a felony to lose your 2A right. Roof would have failed a background check to purchase a firearm.
There’s an addendum to the report that states that Roof stole the firearm (a felony) from his mother. Sadly, the church where Roof committed the murders was a “Gun Free Zone”. Obviously, only law-abiding people obey those signs. So there wasn’t anyone in the church with a gun that could have stopped Roof. In order for laws to work, criminals must follow them.
I’ve shown FBI statistics on this site several times showing how we live in an extremely safe country. Violent crime is down to historical lows. Crime has dropped at a rate almost inversely identical to the rate of increase in gun ownership.
As expected, we’ve seen Barack Obama and his ilk attempt to use this tragedy before the bodies are even cold. The people who are being fooled all use the same lines: “We just want common sense gun control”, “Mentally ill people shouldn’t be allowed to have guns”. But common sense is in short supply on the Left. Furthermore, who decides who is and is not “mentally ill”? The DHS has already categorized domestic terrorists as Tea Party members and people who believe in the Constitution.
While the politicians have hostile intentions, I am fully aware that many of their constituents don’t. While they are usually hoplophobes, they are well meaning hoplophobes. Unfortunately, emotions have taken priority over facts and statistics. If only they knew why their elected officials are so determined to end the 2nd amendment. Please don’t misunderstand, this is not about curbing ownership. This is about ending it.
And realize that today was the day the Republic officially died.
MARCO RUBIO CASTS DECIDING VOTE FOR OBAMATRADE WITHOUT EVEN READING IT – Breitbart
The funny thing is, it’s still not over. If the people of this country ever realized en masse that their neighbor isn’t their enemy and focused their displeasure in a unified, peaceful, mass demonstration and civil disobedience, we would start getting back our civil liberties.
Unfortunately, we still have an enormous segment of the voting population that somehow thinks that by supporting tyrants, they’re going to be given a golden ticket. Spoiler alert: they won’t.
Rand Paul’s plan calls for significant changes to the existing tax system – Washington Times
Rand Paul overnight changed the dynamics of the Republican presidential race on Thursday when he released his Fair and Flat Tax plan. As he said when he unveiled the plan on video: “this is the boldest rewrite of the income tax system in 100 years — and even Ronald Reagan — who dramatically improved the federal tax system — wasn’t proposing this sweeping a cleanup of the tax code.”
This plan would take America from being one of the highest income tax rate nations in the world to the lowest. This would suck capital and jobs from the rest of the world almost immediately to these shores. America would move from a nation off-shoring jobs, to one that would start in-sourcing millions of them. It gives U.S. workers a fair advantage.
The problem here is twofold:
-The RNC and the MSM (especially Fox News) will marginalize Rand Paul just like they did to his father. Despite winning primaries and polls, it was ignored. In an honest and free election, I have little doubt that Rand Paul could win the Presidency, especially given how fucking horrible the candidates are on the other side.
-The other problem is that there is no interest on the part of the vast majority of elected Republicans and Democrats in rebuilding our economy and energizing the job market. Most of these “people” on both sides have masters other than the American people and their directive is to destroy this country so it can be rebuilt into their technocratic nightmare, not rejuvenate it.
Seven Liberal Pieties That Only the Right Still Believes: The Federalist
- The Right to Offend
- The Value of a Liberal Education
- Government Should Stay Out of the Bedroom
- Live and Let Live
- Support for Israel
- Support for Human Rights
- The Dignity of the Working Man
The funny thing is that the “liberals” of my parent’s generation were the ones that in effect built this list. But all of them now have either switched sides or stepped away.
There’s sadly not a single item on this list that identifies the new culture that modern-day Liberals are creating. But back in the day, if you adhered to these tenants you would be a Liberal in Good Standing but now all it gets you is accusations of being a Right Wing Extremist.
But remember kids! The Democrats haven’t changed, it’s those crazy conservatives that have become just so radical.
I wrestled with whether or not to post this video for a while. I don’t want to alienate people from this blog and the hypothesis put forward by Jones and Reverend Childress would be considered fringe by many. But it’s not fringe at all if you’ve done some reading on the subject.
Just to be clear, my hesitancy has nothing to do with my belief in the hypothesis put forward in the video. I’m 100% certain of it. Hopefully many of you are starting to see the big picture now and if that’s the case, the idea put forth in the video won’t seem so outlandish.
Black Pastor Convinced Charleston Shooter Coerced
More than a week ago there was a procedural vote in the lower chamber where the leadership was pushing in support of Barack Obama’s request for fast-track authority on the big Pacific trade deal. When the votes were counted, 34 Republicans bucked the leadership, saying that they were working too closely with Democrats, and voted against the measure. One of those was Mark Meadows, the chairman of the Government Operations subcommittee within the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Or rather, I should say the formerchairman of the subcommittee.
If only the Republican leadership was as tough on Democrats…
Folks, it’s coming. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s October. Elites are fleeing the country. They want to collapse the economy soon. We may also be looking at a serious conflict with Russia and/or China during the same time. All of it planned, of course.
I’ll be thrilled to look the fool and be wrong.
Now, I’m basing this on far more than a news article. But this is an example that what’s coming isn’t much of a secret:
Writing’s On The Wall: Texas Pulls $1 Billion In Gold From NY Fed, Makes It “Non-Confiscatable” – Zero Hedge
From what I am told, Governor Greg Abbot and most of the Republicans down in Texas are genuinely decent people that want prosperity for their citizens. They want that gold to weather the storm and prop up their own economy if/when this comes. They know what the plan is. That’s why the Bill that was just signed into law makes it illegal for the Federal Government to attempt to confiscate that gold from the State of Texas.
I don’t talk about this enough on here, but the Federal Reserve is as much of a Federal institution as Federal Express is. I’m sure you’ve heard people like Ron Paul, etc talk about the danger of the Federal Reserve. If you’re not familiar with the finer points, take the time to research. You’ll have a greater understanding of what’s actually happening and about to happen if you do. Do a search on youtube.com for “Revealed: The Men Who Own and Run the US Government”.
Between now and the Fall, the push for a race war on the part of people like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, etc will continue. They want you hating your neighbor so that you don’t notice who is really causing problems. Love your neighbor both literally and figuratively. Don’t buy into the racial division and hatred that some very bad people are working overtime to drum up. Be prepared to take care of your family. There’s a very good chance that the next 12 months will bring a lot of changes, none of them good.
