From a member of the Cult of Gun Control who wants to stop evil people by restricting the liberties of the good people
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is offering her take on what she believes is a “gun-worshipping” problem in the United States.
On an episode of the “Just Something About Her with Jennifer Palmieri” podcast, Clinton explained, “It’s clear that we have a gun-worshipping problem in America. This goes far beyond any kind of Constitutional right which in my opinion as a recovering lawyer was misinterpreted by the Supreme Court.”
She noted her husband, former President Bill Clinton, worked with Congress to pass a ban on assault weapons. The Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act, also called the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, was signed in 1994.
Yes, and it had zero impact on violent crime, of course gun control is not intended to reduce violence is it………….
Anytime leftists put a word in front of “justice” you know bad tings will follow, as Tom Knighton points out
For those of us looking for real solutions rather than simply using the bodies of dead children as a soapbox, there’s a lot more to the picture. The shooter should have been arrested at numerous points for his actions regarding domestic violence against his own mother, charges that would have barred him from ever owning a firearm in the first place.
However, there are factors and failures well beyond that, and one school board member claims she was intimidated into keeping quiet about them.
School board member Nora Rupert admitted in a deposition that internal corruption led to safety failures that contributed to the death of students and teachers. When she tried to speak up about these failures, she claimed that she was met with an intimidation campaign from other board members and the district’s superintendent, Robert Runcie.
In comes Kenny Preston. A young, student journalist who reviewed the documents from Florida TaxWatch and wrote a report to share with the victims’ families and present to the school board. He believed if safety measures had been put in place and the school actually used SMART bond funding, fewer students would have been killed.
During his research process, Preston also came across a discipline matrix problem in Florida schools that became mandated at the behest of the Obama administration’s “restorative justice” policies. This policy was championed by Runcie, so Preston spoke with school board chairwoman Nora Rupert — Runcie’s most vocal critic.
Rupert confirmed to Preston that under the current discipline matrix, school administrators were not required to refer students to law enforcement for felonies. Preston thought this may have contributed to the shooter’s ability to bypass criminal punishment for earlier offenses, so he included Rupert’s comments in his report.
Preston presented his findings on the SMART bond and the discipline matrix during a school board meeting on April 10, 2018. In the meeting, Rupert disavowed her comments and claimed that she had never spoken with Preston.
“[Any quotation] would be from a public meeting,” Rupert said. “My record stands on its own, and I usually don’t comment on misinformation… it’s very hurtful… I really can’t excuse people using quotes for political gain.”
In a 2019 deposition obtained by The Daily Wire, Rupert admitted that Preston’s report was correct and that corruption led to delayed safety measures that could have saved lives.
Knighton points to the magnitude of the magnitude of Preston’s admission
Not just did corruption lead to the gunman not having been charged for potential felonies within the school, but then it led to a coverup and an accusation against a student journalist that he falsified quotes.
I’m sorry, but that’s some weapons-grade wrong there.
Now, I’m not sure how an elected official is being bullied and intimidated by a superintended who ostensibly works for the school board, but that’s something for the voters of Broward County to deal with, if they care to.
What matters to me is that these failures directly contributed to a school shooting, one where absolutely every piece of evidence we’ve seen suggests this individual who slaughtered innocent teens was enabled despite every warning sign imaginable. Then, rather than own up to the mistakes, school officials tried to cover them up and make the teen journalist who uncovered them look like a liar.
No, this is a time for proverbial heads on platters.
Yes, it is, past time actually. The sick bastard who pulled the trigger killed many innocent lives, but leftism, in this case, “restorative justice” was just as culpable. And never forget those who embrace leftist failures also seek to use the tragedies caused by leftism to strip away natural rights like self-defense. Again let us say, leftism is evil
The gun-hating Left loves to go on about how, if you own a gun, you are more likely to shoot someone you know than a stranger. That is in part because people you know are more likely to be a threat. Authorities: Lake Mathews property owner fatally shoots man in self-defense
A property owner shot and killed a former resident in self-defense during an altercation in the unincorporated community of Lake Mathews, sheriff’s officials said Sunday.
It was clear they knew each other. The guy who got shot, showed up and threatened the people living in the house. The homeowner defended himself and his family.
Many people do not think of how many people they “know”. Think of all your former, and current coworkers, neighbors, people you attended college with, maybe people you see at your favorite watering hole or coffee house, and so on. We all “know” a LOT of people. And yes, some of them may be a threat in some way. The left, not caring about honesty are all too happy to create the false narrative of “people you know” to push gun control.
So, while in Texas I had Governor Bush, who signed Texas’ concealed carry into law. Then I had Governor Perry, who was a solid ally of the second amendment, then came current Governor Greg Abbott, another pro second amendment governor. Now though Virginia has Governor Northam, who is into gun grabbing even more than he is into shoe polish. Cam Edwards at Bearing Arms sheds the light on Governor Northam’s veiled threats towards those who actually believe in natural rights like self-defense!
While several of Virginia’s congresscritters are calling for Second Amendment Sanctuary counties in the state to be stripped of state funds or to have the National Guard brought in to enforce new gun control laws, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is instead offering veiled threats of “consequences” for sheriffs in Second Amendment Sanctuary counties unless they enforce whatever gun control bills he signs into law.
When asked by a reporter if local governments would face retaliation for declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, Northam responded, “There’s not going to be retaliation. That’s not what I’m about. I’m about making Virginia safer.”
Northam continued, “If we have constitutional laws on the books and law enforcement officers are not enforcing those laws on the books, then there are going to be consequences, but I’ll cross that bridge if and when we get to it.”
Northam did not offer specifics on what the potential consequences would be.
Yeah, I doubt he would ever back up that rhetoric, and, hopefully, he can see well enough through that Blackface to see he is NOT on the right side of history
Funny how just a week or so ago the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement was “purely symbolic” according to gun control activists. Now that more than 80 counties and cities in Virginia have declared themselves safe havens for the right to keep and bear arms, they’re singing a very different tune. Too bad for the anti-gun crowd that Second Amendment supporters aren’t gonna dance to their song.
I am hopeful, and sure that our governor will focus on real issues and abandon Virginia Democrats obsession with trampling the constitution
The people in this video are clueless. Clueless about “human rights” self-defense IS one. Clueless about our Constitution. Clueless about the number of self-defense gun uses every year. Clueless about falling rates of crime, homicide, homicide by firearm, and accidental death by firearm. There is not thinking behind their position. It is strictly emotional based on lies by the gun control crowd. If you ever wonder why I refer to people like this as gun control “cultists”, well, wonder no more
Awww,Matt says it is so “personal” Yes, yes my ability and right to protect my life and those of my loved ones ARE damn personal to me. Nothing any gun control advocate, including you Matt Damon, has ever sought would do anything to reduce crime. The only thing the laws you advocate would do is create more gun free zones, and defenseless people. And yes crime would rise Mr. Damon
It would probably pain the not-so-talented Mr. Damon to discover that gun crime has exploded in Australia since they passed gun laws that were ignored by 80-percent of the population, and that the population is nowmore at risk because of excessive gun laws.
Australians may be more at risk from gun crime than ever before with the country’s underground market for firearms ballooning in the past decade.
Previously unseen police statistics show that the number of pistol-related offences doubled in Victoria and rose by 300 per cent in New South Wales. At least two other states also saw a massive jump in firearms-related offences during the same period.
An investigation by The New Daily unearthed previously unpublished data for firearms offences collected from police and crime statistics agencies in four states – Victoria, NSW, South Australia and Tasmania.
The statistics detail the types of firearms offences police have pursued in the courts in the past decade and show some concerning findings, including a massive 83 per cent increase in firearms offences in NSW between 2005/06 and 2014/15, and an even bigger jump in Victoria over the same period.
To use a phrase an old buddy used, this woman is dumber than a stepped on roach
A mewling gun control group is irate that a local grocery store chain is refusing to infringe upon the rights of citizens to bear arms for their defense, a policy that is fully in accordance with state laws.
Anti-firearm protesters are planning to protest against Mariano’s allowing guns in their suburban stores Tuesday morning during a grand opening ceremony of the chain’s newest location in Northbrook.
“Mariano’s doesn’t let people carry guns in its Chicago stores,” said Lee Goodman of Peaceful Communities, an organizer of the protest, “Why should people in the suburbs shop in a store that isn’t even trying to keep its customers safe? Why shouldn’t we have the same protection that people in Chicago do?”
Oh boy! Lee Goodman of “Peaceful Communities” really just said he wants to be safe, you know like those folks in Chicago! Chicago, where the murder rate is off the charts. And of course Lee Goodman, who I can now safely call a noted idiot, wants more of the gun control that Chicago has, even though that gun control has done nothing to curb murders or violent crime. But, that is NOT the most idiotic thing from these “peaceful” protesters folks. No, observe this jewel of colossal stupidity!
Signs Save Lives? Allow Bob Owens to sum up depth to which this buffoon has dug into the Pit of Eternal Liberal Stupidity
Three simple, short words, showing how disconnected from reality this poor woman truly is.
She honestly thinks that a “no guns” sign on a door is going to cause a criminal to not just pause and reconsider the armed robbery he is a bout to commit, but cause him to reverse course entirely.
She thinks a sign will make a deadly predator—one that likely has only marginal literacy to begin with—to alter his criminal path.
She truly believes that the threat of prosecution for a minor infraction is going to dissuade a criminal from committing felonies.
It blows the mind to fathom the depths of her delusions.
All I can say is Good Freaking Grief! This illustrates how unserious the Left is. It is a bumper sticker mentality frankly. An ideology devoid of reason, common sense, and thought.
