Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey urges Christians to arm ourselves

Joey Garrison reports for The Tennessean, Oct. 2, 2015, that in response to reports that Oregon college shooter Chris Harper-Mercer had targeted Christians in his shooting spree, Tennesse lietenant governor and state senator Ron Ramsey (R-Blountville) yesterday urged fellow Christians to consider getting a gun. (See “Oregon shooter singled out Christians for slaughter“)

Tennesse Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey

This is what Ramsey posted on his Facebook page:

As I scroll through the news this morning I am saddened to read the details of the horrible tragedy in Oregon. My heart goes out to the citizens of Roseburg — especially the families and loved ones of those murdered.

The recent spike in mass shootings across the nation is truly troubling. Whether the perpetrators are motivated by aggressive secularism, jihadist extremism or racial supremacy, their targets remain the same: Christians and defenders of the West.

While this is not the time for widespread panic, it is a time to prepare. I would encourage my fellow Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit. I have always believed that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.

Our enemies are armed. We must do likewise.

Ramsey’s comments elicited a written statement from Tennessee State Rep. John Ray Clemmons (D-Nashville), who said Ramsey’s comments “reek of fear-mongering and religious crusading.”

John Ray Clemmons

Clemmons, a pro-abort Demonrat who voted against two Tennessee laws putting restrictions on abortion, accused Ramsey of publicity-seeking and of choosing “the road most traveled by the radical right” and, in so doing, impeding “the General Assembly’s bipartisan efforts to improve public safety by removing guns from the hands of criminals.” Clemmons then pontificated that, “Things have never ended well when any leader has asked people to take up arms in the name of their religious faith.”

So according to state Rep. Clemmons, upholding the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment is “the road” of the “radical right”!

Thank you, Clemmons, for confirming what I’d always thought: America’s Founding Fathers are today’s Conservatives.


California weighs banning concealed handguns on campuses

What could possibly go wrong?


Sacramento Bee: Already praised by many gun control advocates for having the strictest firearms laws in the country, California is once again considering a move to tighten its restrictions with a ban on the concealed carry of handguns at colleges and schools.

Last year, California was the first in the nation to let families and police act to temporarily remove weapons from those considered at risk of violence. This time, it would follow dozens of other states that previously put similar prohibitions in place – and a growing number moving in the opposite direction to expand gun rights on campuses.

The concealed carry legislation, now on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk, puts California in the midst of a policy debate gaining prominence as gun advocates such as the National Rifle Association, having won significant victories guaranteeing the right of ownership, turn their focus to the right to carry and the status of firearms in public spaces.

“There’s no question that the power of the NRA is at its height today,” said John Donohue, a professor at Stanford Law School who studies the effects of gun laws on public safety. “People who want guns don’t want to have restrictions that impede them going about their daily lives.”

Current California law makes it illegal to possess a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school or on a college campus without permission from administrators, but it includes exemptions for retired law enforcement and concealed carry permits.

Senate Bill 707, by Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, would expand the prohibition on school and college grounds to include concealed weapons, while keeping the same rules in place for the 1,000-foot zone surrounding schools and for law enforcement. On a nearly party-line vote, with Democrats in support and Republicans opposed, lawmakers approved the measure in early September; Brown has until Oct. 11 to act.

The idea for the bill came from university and college police, who say school officials should have more control over campus safety. Concealed handgun permits, which require residents to show “good cause” that they are in immediate danger, are handed out by county sheriffs, who vary in their interpretation of the policy.

Lurking on the periphery are two federal developments that could seriously undermine California’s restrictive law: Legislation proposed in Congress would require states to recognize concealed carry permits issued anywhere, though it has not yet advanced, and a lawsuit now at the appellate level has already seen one judge strike down the “good cause” requirement as unconstitutional. “If the decision of the 9th Circuit affirms the lower court, that will open the floodgates for people to get concealed carry permits,” Donohue said.

In a statement, Wolk said SB 707 “would put California more in line with most states that already forbid concealed firearms on school or college campuses.”

“This is one of the unusual cases where California law is more lax than other states,” she said. “Most people I hear from are astonished that someone could legally carry a concealed firearm on to school grounds.”

The 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech – still one of the deadliest in history with 33 casualties, including the perpetrator, and another 17 wounded – generated intense controversy over gun policy and brought the question of campus carry to the national stage. Eight years later, it continues to echo.

In a national address Thursday, President Barack Obama decried the lack of legislative effort to prevent further mass shootings, like the one that day at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, where a gunman killed nine people before dying in a shootout with police. The Oregon higher education board had previously banned guns from college campuses, but a court overturned that policy in 2011, stating that only the Legislature had the authority to regulate firearms.

California has faced recent incidents like the 2014 Isla Vista rampage that claimed the lives of six UC Santa Barbara students and their killer, and a confrontation at Sacramento City College last month that left one dead.

Much of the fight over campus carry boils down to whether guns make us more or less safe. Advocates argue that students with firearms may be able to help prevent crimes such as mass shootings and rapes.

Shannon Grove gets it

Speaking against SB 707 on the Assembly floor, Assemblywoman Shannon Grove said carrying concealed weapons could offer a “sense of protection” to young women. “If I’m walking down the street at night, my Glock puts me on even footing with anybody that would ever try to come and hurt me,” the Bakersfield Republican said. During a Senate deliberation, Sen. John Moorlach, R-Costa Mesa, suggested it could be “a very strong way to curtail some of the nonsense that’s going on” with campus sexual assaults.

Gun control supporters counter that throwing firearms onto a campus with young people, alcohol, mental health issues and strongly-held beliefs on controversial topics is a dangerous mix. “It’s a fairly volatile environment,” said Laura Cutilleta, senior staff attorney for the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which advocated for SB 707. “To add guns to that is just alarming.”

It’s a debate that’s not likely to be settled any time soon. At least 14 states have introduced legislation to allow guns on campus in each of the past three years, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. “We think it’s a really important issue,” NRA spokeswoman Amy Hunter said. “The right to personal safety doesn’t disappear the second you step on a campus.”


Oregon shooter singled out Christians for slaughter

Yesterday, a lone gunman killed 9 and wounded 7 people in Umpqua Community College (UCC), a picturesque campus in Roseburg, Oregon. In a shootout with police, the shooter himself was killed. Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, however, said 13 people died.

Here’s what we are told about the massacre thus far:

1. The killer singled out Christians

Stacy Boylen, whose daughter was one of the wounded, told CNN that the gunman started “asking people one by one what their religion was. ‘Are you a Christian?’ he would ask them, and if you’re a Christian stand up. And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you are going to see God in just about one second.’ And then he shot and killed them.”

A twitter user named @bodhilooney tweeted that according to her grandmother, who was at the scene of the carnage, if victims said they were Christian “then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.”

Student Kort­ney Moore, 18, said she saw the teacher of her Writing 115 class get shot in the head at the college’s Snyder Hall before the gunman started asking people to state their religion and opening fire.

The killer’s disdain for religion was evident in an online profile, in which he became a member of a “doesn’t like organized religion” group on an Internet dating site.

2. The killer

Myspace Chris Harper-Mercer, 26 gunman in the Umpqua Community College in Oregon

His name is Chris Harper-Mercer, 26. He carried 3 pistols and a rifle.

It is believed Harper-Mercer was the anonymous poster on the chat forum, 4chan, who wrote this ominous comment the night before: “Some of you guys are alright. Don’t go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest. happening thread will be posted tomorrow morning. so long space robots.”

Reportedly, other posters on 4chan cheered him on.

Harper-Mercer’s online profiles indicate he had a fascination with the terror tactics of the Irish Republican Army, and bought Nazi memorabilia. In a blog post, he wrote this about Vester Lee Flanagan, who murdered a Virginia newswoman and cameraman live on air: “Seems like the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight.”

Update: Harper-Mercer described his ethnicity as “Mixed Race”; his religion as “Not Religious, Not Religious, but Spiritual”; his ideal woman as “Pagan, Wiccan, Not Religious, but Spiritual” with “vampire, piercings, psychic, tattoos”; his hobbies as including “Killing Zombies”; and his favorite food as “Always Dieting, BRAINS!”. He had “connections” with two people, one of whom is a Muslim named Mahmoud Ali Ehsani who says he loves Allah and the Quran, and has a many photos of Muslim terrorists.

3. The gun-free college has only one unarmed guard

Joe Olson, a former president of Umpqua Community College, said that it has only one unarmed security officer and that the community decided against armed guards last year.

4. Obama immediately called for gun control

When news came about the shooting, despite the fact that reports that UCC is a gun-free zone and had only one unarmed guard, Obama immediately and illogically called again for gun control, bemoaning that America is “the only advanced country on earth [that] sees these kind of mass shooting every few months.”

Someone really should ask the POS in the White House about Chicago — a gun-control city where every weekend is marked by multiple gun shootings and carnage.

Chicago is the poster child for how gun control does NOTHING to stop gun violence, as chronicled every week by our DCG. See her latest post, “Gun control, Chicago style: More Than 50 People Shot for the Second Weekend in a Row in Chicago.”


Happy October First!!!


Jim Bakker’s lying “prophets” have now been debunked

It’s a cool cloudy morning, and I am now sitting down to a Second Breakfast that would make a hobbit blush

With their prediction of doom inside the month of September, Jim Bakker’s false prophets have moved on to doom-saying on October, November, December, etc. Some of these rascals have been pushing the date forward for years now.

Is it all good news? No it’s not. The world has been ready to explode at any given moment from before I was born. Evil people are still doing evil things. But we can at least dismiss those who shamelessly exploit other peoples’ fears as a way of selling their goods.

In the midst of it all, God remains true.

Even though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

– Psalm 23:4-5

And as for the table set before me, I have a heart filled with gratitude to a Shepherd who cares for his sheep so much that he gave his life for them.

“My sheep know my voice. They will not follow another.”

And for the rest of the day, here is my schedule:


And please note, there will be absolutely none of Jim Bakker’s “survival food” on the menu.

Please excuse me, it’s time for a nice buttery muffin.

“Honor Killing”: Muslim father kills daughter caught shoplifting condoms

The real war on women.

Lareeb Khan/Daily Mail Photo

Lareeb Khan/Daily Mail Photo A Pakistani father in Germany has confessed to strangling his 19-year-old daughter to death. Asadullah Khan, 51, strangled his daughter, Lareeb Khan, after he learnt of her relationship with a boy he didn’t approve of, according to Daily Mail.

Confessing to the murder, a weeping Khan told court in Darmstadt, Germany he believed his daughter had brought ‘dishonour’ to the family by being in a relationship with a boy he did not approve of. He said he wanted Lareeb to have an arranged marriage as he and his wife had done.

The 51-year-old’s wife, Shazia, said her daughter had stayed away from the family home for several nights in a row and had stopped wearing her headscarf. Further, claiming she was unable to stop her husband from killing Lareeb, Shaziz said, “I couldn’t stop him.” “I have rheumatism and didn’t have the strength to fight him off. I wanted to scream, but I couldn’t,” the statement added.

‘Lareeb stayed away from the home for several nights in a row and stopped wearing the headscarf. One day we received a letter from the police saying she had been caught trying to steal condoms. ‘At this point it became clear that there was sexual contact. When I showed the letter to my husband he snapped.’

Khan and his wife Shazia, dressed their daughter in her clothes after killing her and her took her from their apartment to the car in a wheelchair. They then drove to an isolated embankment in Darmstadt; their home town, where they dumped the body.

The couple is on trial for the murder at the State Court in Darmstadt, and although Shazia claims she was an oppressed woman and was therefore unable to save her daughter, her statement contradicts that of her daughter Nida who said: ‘My Mama was not suppressed, she could do what she wanted. She used to hit me with a stick. We were never allowed to talk about her boyfriend. My father used to say my sister should be forcibly married in Pakistan.’

Nida, who was sent to her relatives on the night of the murder, gave evidence against both her parents, adding that her mother was as strict as her father and often hit her and her sister. Nida is now in therapy and does not want to see her parents.

Lareeb’s trial still continues.


Gun control, Chicago style: More Than 50 People Shot for the Second Weekend in a Row in Chicago

Chicago has a serious problem and Rahm is finally waking up? He obviously hasn’t read the news for the past year or so.

Yahoo: Four people were killed and 52 wounded during shootings across Chicago over the weekend. After multiple weekends in a row of increased violence in the cityChicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is urging a fresh and more proactive approach to gun control. The latest incidents, including the murder of a pregnant mother, come on the heels of two weekends in a row with more than 50 shootings in Chicago.

At least 2,300 people have been shot in Chicago this year alone, according to the Chicago Tribune. According to their analysis, that’s roughly 400 more incidents than during the same period in 2014. Homicides are currently up 21 percent in 2015, with the past two weekends pointing to a noticeable increase in gun-related violence.

“Wherever you live, you should be able to get out of your car and go to your home,” Emanuel told reporters on Tuesday after receiving news of the increased violence continuing on Monday evening, leaving six dead and at least eight injured. “You can say this happened in the neighborhood of the Back of the Yards, but everybody (who) woke up this morning, or heard it last night, felt a pain of anguish, and it’s time that our criminal justice system and the laws as it relates to access to guns and the penalties for using ’em reflect the values of the people of the city of Chicago.”

Naked, blood-covered zombie terrorizes California drivers; tries to get in cars

There is something very wrong with America.

Yesterday morning, in a residential neighborhood near a school in Victorville, California, a naked man, covered with blood, wandered the streets and tried to get into moving cars. Drivers had to fight him to prevent him from getting in.

Victorville is a city with a population of about 122,000 in the southern Californian high desert.

Victorville zombie

CBS Los Angeles reports, Sept. 28, 2015, that the area along El Evado and Seneca roads in Victorville is usually filled with school buses, parents and students.

But on Monday morning, a naked man covered in blood was wandering the streets and getting into confrontations with some of the parents who had to repel him from their cars.

Witnesses say the man was difficult to comprehend and was yelling at times. Lydia Lopez said, “You couldn’t even make out what he was actually saying. He was just screaming, ‘Ahhh!’ And just constantly screaming.”

Lopez shot the video with her cellphone video which has now gone viral (see below). She had her three young children in the car with her. Lopez said, “It really did look like more of a like zombie. He was in a zombie state of mind in a way ’cause looking at his face, you can just tell. He just wasn’t there. It didn’t even look like he knew what he was doing.”

A bystander named “Sam” tried to help a woman who kept pushing the naked man away. Sam said, “He was out of his mind. He was like speaking in tongues. He was … didn’t feel no pain. I was stopping the school buses. I was telling them to turn around because there’s a bunch of kids on there and there’s a naked man.” At one point, Sam even kicked naked man to the ground. Zombie-dude then got back up and yelled at Sam. So Sam kicked zombie in the groin.

The horrifying ordeal lasted up to ten minutes before police arrived.

When officers did, they tried to subdue the man and get him to obey their commands. The man attempted to steal a patrol unit before additional deputies arrived and assisted in taking him into custody.

Authorities eventually arrested the suspect who they identified as 19-year-old David Anglin. Anglin is accused of being under the influence of drugs, carjacking, and breaking into a nearby apartment.

According to Daily Press, officials said Anglin broke into an apartment nearby shortly before he was spotted nude on Seneca Road.

Amanda Buchanan said that “Before he was seen walking around naked, he broke into my friend’s house. He was pounding on her windows until one broke — that’s why his hands were covered in blood.” Anglin entered the home and attacked Buchanan’s friend, a woman, who was able to fend him off before reporting the incident to authorities.

Buchanan said her friend “was covered in blood from the attack” and was transported to a local hospital for observation.

Update (Sept. 30):

David Anglin is actually Daniel Anglin, says his mother, Denise.

Denise says her 19-year-old son is “mentally” disabled with bipolar and schizophrenia, and was on methamphetamine during Monday’s incident. She says says Daniel is getting professional help, but sometimes doesn’t take his medication and turns to drugs. The teen was arrested on suspicion of several charges, including carjacking and burglary. He has been released from the hospital and is at an undisclosed location recovering. (CBS Los Angeles)
