The Grand Theater in Lafayette, Louisiana excluded honorable people with guns. That means the only guns in the theater were in dishonorable hands. And when a crazy person started shooting in their theater, they called honorable people with guns to save them.
Some people still believe gun-prohibition works. That fading idea is like a sick old man on life support. It takes more and more effort simply to keep that fading fantasy alive.
They try. These anti-rights lobbyists pump out a heartbeat of press releases paid for with a billionaire’s money. Yes, I mean Bloomberg, as well as the Joyce, Tides and Heinz foundations.
Here is an example. The murders at the Charleston, South Carolina church were in a gun free zone. The billionaires who wants you disarmed said we need more background checks.. while admitting the murderer passed his firearms owner background check.
A crazed gunman attacked a Dallas, Texas police station. The Bloomberg groups blamed a new law allowing open carry of firearms. They forgot to mention that the open carry law does not go into effect until next year.
The dying idea of gun-prohibition has given us failure after failure. Each failure demands a successively larger media campaign to keep the gun-prohibition fantasy alive. It becomes harder and harder to sell gun-prohibition to anyone except the liberal medial. The media spin would be funny except for the number of disarmed victims. Look for the media to parrot the press release after the next attack in a gun free zone.*
The idea of gun-prohibition is fading fast. The number of concealed carry permits in the US more than doubled since President Obama was elected. Last year the number of permits grew by a record 15%. The murder rate fell by 25 percent during that same period showing that honest gun owners don’t cause crime. Today, the national average is that one out of 19 adults has a permit to carry, and in five states the licensed carry rate is more than one in ten adults.
The average gun owner looks like the average American. Since 2007, permits for women have increased by 270% while permits have only grown by 156% for men. Evidence suggests that permit holding by minorities is increasing more than twice as fast as for whites.
Bloomberg will have to pump a few more millions into the dead idea of gun-prohibition.
*I originally thought I’d hold this article, but then MDA gave me the quote I wanted. The murderer in Louisiana was a drifter with a long criminal history.. who got a gun anyway. MDA said we need more gun control. (head desk)
I know you’ve heard about the tragic shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee. A Muslim murdered 5 of our military men and wounded another two servicemen. Did you hear what happened next? These sailors and marines were disarmed by their superiors. Since these service men are serving us and they could not carry weapons.. we did it for them. Ordinary citizens stood guard in front of recruiting centers.
Not just one or two, but at locations across this country. We saw it in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
Some of the volunteers had family in the military. Some of the volunteers were off duty law enforcement. All the volunteers saw a need and filled it.
You did that.
You acted without asking for permission.. or recognition.
Some politicians even got the message to defend our military from Muslim terrorists. Governors in Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas told their national guard to go armed.
Five US senators sponsored a bill to eliminate bans on military personnel carrying firearms on military recruitment facilities and bases.
The US House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act and included language authorizing military base commanders to allow concealed carry of firearms on military installations.
That is a good start, but it misses the mark and falls short. We would bring criminal charges against a business owners who let their employees get killed on the job. Why is a soldiers death on US soil different? It should end a military officer’s career if he fails to provide physical security for the men under his command. Some generals need to lose their job. Unfortunately, that won’t happen.
Not everyone understands that responsibility. The governor of Florida said recruiters should close their offices and retreat to their armories. The Obama administration said our military should remain disarmed in the US. Obama said recruiters should protect themselves by not wearing their military uniforms.. and by pulling the blinds across their windows.
Obama refuses to use the words Islamic terrorism. The liberal media wonders if this is more workplace violence. Snort.
As one pundit put it, President Obama trusts Iranians with nuclear weapons, but Obama doesn’t trust Marines with handguns.
This is the 21st attack in the United States by an avowed Muslim.
Obama makes department inspectors general subordinate to the political appointees heading the government department. Yes, this is the most transparently corrupt administration in history!

People who say that history was shaped by ideas, not violence.. have no idea about history.
Violence has certainly shaped history in Vietnam, Cambodia, Pakistan, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq, the soviet union, Turkey, Greece, Syria, Egypt, Nigeria, Libia, Algeria, England, France, Canada, the US, and Mexico. *
* Please don’t be offended if I left your favorite country off the list.
