Tim McGraw and Faith Hill support gun control: “It’s not about the Second Amendment”

tim mcgraw

McGraw previously performed at a Sandy Hook benefit, which caused some controversy. He’s staying put on his push for gun control.

Can’t we just start with enforcing current gun laws?

From The Mercury News: Tim McGraw and Faith Hill might have just alienated themselves from the majority of country music’s conservative fan base. In a wide-ranging interview with Billboard, the husband and wife country superstars opened up about their support for gun control.

“Look, I’m a bird hunter — I love to wing-shoot,” McGraw said. “However, there is some common sense that’s necessary when it comes to gun control.

“They want to make it about the Second Amendment every time it’s brought up. It’s not about the Second Amendment.”

Billboard conducted the interview less than two weeks after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, killing 58 and injuring nearly 500 people in attendance at the Las Vegas country music festival.

The country music community has since been criticized for its tepid response.

On Wednesday, the Country Music Association Awards did briefly honor the Las Vegas victims. Host Carrie Underwood sang “Softly and Tenderly Jesus is Calling” as pictures of the 58 victims were displayed.

But there was little acknowledgment of the tragedy beyond that. In fact, CMA organizers originally banned journalists from asking about Las Vegas and guns, but a public backlash forced them to reverse course.

Hill and McGraw were in attendance at the Nashville award show, and performed “The Rest of Our Life.”

“In reference to the tragedy in Las Vegas, we knew a lot of people there,” said Hill in the Billboard interview. “The doctors that (treated) the wounded, they saw wounds like you’d see in war. That’s not right. Military weapons should not be in the hands of civilians. It’s everyone’s responsibility, including the government and the National Rifle Association, to tell the truth. We all want a safe country.

Demorats propose ban on assault weapons

molon labe

Maybe demorats should start by having their precious federal government enforce current laws. Oh wait, we know how much they really care about following the law

From NY Post: Nearly two dozen Democratic senators, including Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, introduced a bill on Wednesday to ban the sale of military-style assault weapons and bump stock devices like the one used in the Las Vegas massacre, saying it “will begin removing the weapons of war on our streets.”

“We’re introducing an updated assault weapons ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for a debate and a vote,” said a statement released by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif).

The legislation calls for a ban on the “sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name,” but allows owners to keep their existing weapons.

The measure also proposes to ban “bump-fire stocks and other devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at fully automatic rates.”

The madman who opened fire on an open-air concert in Las Vegas last month outfitted his weapons with a bump-fire stock that allowed him to turn his semi-automatic rifles into rapid-fire weapons and spray thousands of rounds in the span of about 10 minutes. He killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

Five weeks later, a deranged Air Force veteran opened fire on a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, using an AR-15-style assault rifle. He emptied 15 magazines and killed 26 congregants.

Democrats called on their Republican counterparts to begin a discussion on gun violence after the killings, but GOP lawmakers and President Trump responded it was “too soon” after the tragedy and would be “disrespectful to the dead.”

Trump initially said the church shooting “isn’t a gun situation” it is “a mental health problem” then rejected calls for stepped up background checks.

Asked about “extreme vetting” for gun buyers while on an overseas trip this week in South Korea, he said: “If you did what you’re suggesting, there would have been no difference three days ago and you might not have had that very brave person who happens to have a gun or a rifle in his trunk.”

The Democrats’ legislation also calls for a ban of assault weapons that take a “detachable ammunition magazine and has a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock.”

It says 2,200 types of guns used for “hunting, household defense or recreational purposes” will be exempted.

This bill won’t stop every mass shooting, but it will begin removing these weapons of war from our streets,” the statement reads. “Yes, it will be a long process to reduce the massive supply of these assault weapons in our country, but we’ve got to start somewhere.”

Feinstein and the Democrats introduced a bill in 2013 with similar provisions after the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012 but it was defeated in the Senate by a 60-40 vote.

Hollyweird celebrities urge you to #RejectheNRA

These idiots probably believe that “silencers” really work like they do in their stupid movies.

Until Hollyweird celebrities decide to end their own #waronwomen in their industry, they can get bent with their feelings about the Second Amendment. #RejectHollywood.

From Yahoo: Celebrities are banding together to #RejectTheNRA in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting — the deadliest to date on U.S. soil — and they have a very specific plan to do so.

Melissa McCarthy, Emma Stone, Bill Hader, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, John Slattery, Sheryl Crow, and Adam Scott are some of the stars featured in a new PSA that targets efforts to roll back safety laws on gun silencers and concealed carry reciprocity legislation.

The Creative Council for Everytown for Gun Safety, which Moore started in 2015, announced a plan to send one million phone calls to Congress until the next vote in 2018 to urge representatives to reject the agenda of the National Rifle Association. The PSA offers simple instructions on how to do so by connecting callers with Everytown, the gun advocacy nonprofit, and guidelines on what to say.

Other celebrities joining the new PSA include Jack Antonoff, Kathryn Hahn, Samuel Harris, Zazie Beetz, Cynthia Rowley, Natalie Morales, Moby, and Laura Dern. All of them urge Congress to oppose the SHARE Act, which, as they say, would “roll back gun silencer safety laws” and “could make mass shootings even more deadly.” They also highlight concealed reciprocity legislation, which would allow gun owners to carry firearms across state lines.

“I feel really strongly that the time has come to reject the NRA’s dangerous agenda and put the safety of all Americans first,” Beetz and McCarthy said in the video. “We should not make it easy for people with dangerous histories to buy silencers,” Moore added.

Moore was incited to be a gun control advocate by the Sandy Hook massacre, which left 20 children and six adults fatally shot at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut on Dec. 14, 2012.

“At that moment, it felt ridiculous to me, and irresponsible as a parent and as a citizen, that I was not doing something to prevent gun violence,” she explained in an essay. “Simply keeping the news away from my child was putting my head in the sand. I wasn’t helping her, or anyone else, by doing that. So I decided to learn more.”

Michael Moore calls for repeal of “ancient” and “outdated” Second Amendment

'The Wide One'

Stick to what you know Moore: Eating

Michael Moore is currently filming the documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9.” Guess who is the executive producer on this TDS movie? Harvey Weinstein.

And because Fatso is such a Constitutional and firearm expert, he’s offering his take on repealing the Second Amendment. Try not to laugh too hard…

From his Facebook post:

“My Proposal to Repeal the Second Amendment and Replace It With This:

PROPOSED 28th AMENDMENT TO THE US CONSTITUTION “A well regulated State National Guard, being helpful to the safety and security of a State in times of need, along with the strictly regulated right of the people to keep and bear a limited number of non-automatic Arms for sport and hunting, with respect to the primary right of all people to be free from gun violence, this shall not be infringed.”

I, Michael Moore, along with all who support an end to this epidemic of gun violence, propose a new Amendment to our Constitution that repeals the ancient and outdated 2nd Amendment (which was written before bullets and revolvers were even invented), and replaces it with a new 28th Amendment that guarantees States can have State militias (a.k.a. State National Guards which are made up of citizen-soldiers who are called upon in times of natural disasters or other State emergencies), allows individuals to use guns for sport and gathering food, and guarantees everyone the right to be free of, and protected from, gun violence (i.e., the public’s safety comes ahead of an individual’s right to own and fire a gun).

This amendment would allow states and the federal government to pass laws that would regulate gun ownership in the following manner:

  • As over 90% of gun violence is committed by men, in order for a man to purchase a gun, he must first get a waiver from his current wife, plus his most recent ex-wife, or any woman with whom he is currently in a relationship (if he’s gay, he must get the waiver from his male spouse/partner). This law has greatly reduced most spousal/domestic gun murders in Canada.
  • All automatic and semi-automatic guns are banned.
  • No gun or clip can hold more than 6 bullets.
  • To activate a gun for it to be used, the trigger must recognize the fingerprint of its registered owner. This will eliminate most crimes committed with a gun as 80% of these crimes are done with a stolen gun.
  • One’s guns must be stored at a licensed gun club or government-regulated gun storage facility. Believing that having a gun in your home provides you with protection is an American myth. People who die from a home invasion make up a sad but minuscule .04% of all gun murders in the US. And over a third of them are killed by their own gun that the criminal has either stolen or wrestled from them.
  • To own and operate a gun one must obtain a license (like one does to operate a car). To get a license you have to complete a gun training and safety course and pass a thorough background check.
  • As nearly half of all gun deaths are suicides, mental health care must become a top national health priority and must be properly funded. And by making it more difficult to purchase a gun – and requiring its storage outside the home – easy access during a suicidal moment is denied.
  • Current restrictions placed on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), due to successful lobbying by the NRA, have prohibited them from studying the gun violence epidemic in the US. These rules need to be removed and the funding restored. Science will then be free to find out why we are ALONE among nations in killing each other at such a massive rate (hint: It’s not just the guns – it’s us as Americans).

These are a few of the regulations that can be enacted to both protect society yet not deny hunters and sportsmen their fun. This is the sane approach that meets everyone’s needs — everyone, that is, except those of the serial killer, the mass murderer, the violent ex-husband, the disgruntled employee or the disturbed and bullied teenager. We will never eliminate all murder; that’s been with us since Cain killed Abel. But we CAN join the community of enlightened nations where gun violence is that rare occurrence — as opposed to the daily tragedy we now suffer here in the United States of America. This can come to an end with the repeal of the 2nd Amendment and replacing it with the 28th Amendment.

For those who believe it will be impossible to do this, let me close by sharing with you two important facts that should give us hope:

  1. We are not a country of gun nuts. 77% of all Americans do NOT own a gun! If three-quarters of the country has decided they have no need for a gun, three-quarters of the country may also decide they have no need for an archaic amendment that allows retired accountants to own 47 assault weapons. LET’S ORGANIZE THE 77%!
  2. When President Obama tried to get Congress to pass simple, common sense gun control legislation after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, polls showed 90% of the country backed him! But the NRA beat him. LET’S ORGANIZE THE 90%!

We can start with the upcoming midterm election. Let every candidate know: If you take NRA money, we will remove you from office.

Then do it.”

2017 Las Vegas shooting: police scanner reported multiple shooters in different places

We are told that on the night of October 1, 2017, a lone gunman, 64-year-old multimillionaire retired accountant Stephen Paddock, perpetrated the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history from a suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The problem is that not only are there eyewitness reports of muzzle flashes from the windows of Mandalay Bay’s lower floors, there are also audio recordings of automatic weapon fire from near and far, suggestive of multiple shooters in different places.

There’s this video made by a taxi driver at Mandalay Bay:

And this video taken inside the Route 91 Harvest country music fairgrounds by an individual hiding under one of the fairgrounds’ gates. The first burst of gunfire can be heard beginning at the 0:15 mark. At the 2:01 mark, more distant-sounding gun shots can be heard, followed at 2:05 by the sound of nearer gunfire shots.

There are some who say the distant-sounding gun shots are echoes — acoustic artifacts.

But this man, HighImpactFlix, edited Las Vegas police scanner on the night of the shooting into a video, in which police say they heard and saw shots from multiple places — halfway up Mandalay Bay hotel, instead of the 32nd floor, and from the music festival — and that there were at least two shooters.

Below is the video, followed by my transcription from the police scanner. The stress is palpable in the voices of the police officers.

0:56: “1-6-9-10 means we got shots fired…sound like an automatic firearm.”

1:10: “Adam arriving . . . . Coming from upstairs . . . Mandalay Bay, halfway up!”

1:23: “Patrol 3-6-1. I see we have multiples . . . .”

1:30: “We have an active shooter inside the fairgrounds.”

2:03: “Shots fired from Mandalay Bay. There’s many people down [in the fairgrounds] stage left. Just be advised.”

2:12: “Control, do we have anyone covering the southwest corner between Mandalay Bay and the [concert] venue.”

2:19: “CP, I need eyes on something in the PP (?). Can you tell me where it’s coming from?”

“It’s coming from Mandalay Bay!”

2:35: “I’m going to form a strike team. Mandalay Bay and the [Las Vegas] boulevard. I need five officers on me.”

2:40: “We have multiple casualties! GSW to the medical center. Multiple casualties!”

2:46: “Control, be advised shots are coming from Gate 7 [of the concert fairgrounds]. Gate 7. Shots are coming from Gate 7.”

2:52: “1-5-9. I see we have a rifle deployed at Mandalay Bay. We’re trying to see where the shots are coming from. If anyone can advise they are coming from Mandalay?”

“It sounds like either Mandalay or Luxor, we could not know.”

3:16: “4-5-9. It’s coming from . . . 50th or 60th floor. Oh, Mandalay Bay, it’s coming out of window!”

3:30: “I see local flashes in the middle of Mandalay Bay on the north side. Kind of on the west tower towards the center of the casino, like one of the middle floors.”

3:38: “I’m in Mandalay Bay on the 21st (?) floor. I can hear the automatic fire coming from one floor above us.”

3:58: “Multiple GSW to the chest, leg, femoral arteries . . . .”

4:09: “I see a flashing coming from about a third of the way up, center tower, Mandalay Bay.”

4:36: “Control, 1-6-6. I have a gunshot victim at Gate 4.”

“Control, I got one down, gunshot wound to the leg, Reno [Ave.] and Giles [St.], in the intersection. I also have another female down . . . shot, looks like the mouth. Reno and Giles.”

4:51: “We’re taking gunfire, it’s going right over our heads. There’s debris coming overhead, so we’re pinned down here . . . .”

5:00: “Control, 1-6-6. I have a gunshot victim at Gate 4. Gunshot to the leg.”

5:07: “Okay, we can’t worry about victims. We need to stop the shooter before we have more victims. Anybody have eyes on this shooter?”

5:30: “We have multiple, multiple victims shot . . . medical tech. We got one shot in the head.”

“Hey, officers. Please stay calm, just relax, we’re trying to get this set up, okay. Just stay calm.”

5:43: “Control, see if we can have Mandalay Bay shut down their elevator so he [shooter] can’t get mobile, and we can take the stairs and block all the stair exits.”

5:59: “1-59, we’re doing that right now, 32nd floor.”

“We’re gonna give you support.”

“Okay.”

6:10: “A female with a gunshot wound to the head.”

6:24: “7-51. It’s been a while since we heard any shots. Would anybody have eyes on the shooter.”

6:43: “Control, I’ve got two victims at Gate 6. Gunshot wounds to the chest and head. I need immediate medical.”

6:50: “Control, 7-65. I need the radio for a minute. Be advised, we’re taking fire from a very high floor. We believe it’s coming from Mandalay Bay.”

7:39: “Control, 3-35. We’re getting from two civilians saying there might have been three shooters.”

7:45: “We’ve interviewed multiple people leaving the concert venue. Yeah, it is on the north side of Hacienda, east side of Las Vegas Boulevard. Say that there are multiple people, been shot, or were shooting in the concert venue.”

8:00: “I’m in this stairwell on the 32nd floor.”

8:07: “I’m on the 32nd floor. The room is going to be 135.”

8:10: “Code 3 . . . UMC trauma, number 2-80, shot, with a shoulder wound to the right shoulder.”

8:32: “There’s a 4-10 vehicle going the wrong way. White car, going down Las Vegas Boulevard toward Mandalay Bay.”

8:37: “It’s Room 135 on the 32nd floor. I need a SWAT.”

8:50: “We have a four-man element now up to the very end of the hall.”

8:53: “I have multiple . . . victims over here on the east side of the building. I’m on Reno [Ave.] just east of the [Las Vegas] Boulevard, on the east side of this building, I believe it may be a church. I’ve got numerous gunshot victims. I need medical in here. I’ve got a five-man team to provide cover.”

9:12: “I’m going to be in the stairs with some other officers here. We got a lot of wounded. We’re seeing shooter (?) on the Reno [Ave.] side . . . We’re gonna need a couple of medical evacs . . . stairs downstage.”

9:23: “Control, we just spoke to security at Mandalay Bay. They say they have shots fired on 29th and 32nd levels.

9:32: “Control, we’re coming out on the 32nd floor. Just about accosted (?).”

9:38: “We have a security officer also shot in the leg on this 32nd floor. He’s standing right by the elevator.”

9:44: “1-82. We might need to split these channels ’cause we’re going to need a dedicated one for the entire 32nd floor. I think that he’s [shooter] shot down the hallway and hit a security guard, and we have a four-man team up here and we have another element coming to us, so we have a need (?) on the 32nd floor, we will need the 29th floor. It sounds like it’s confirmed there are at least two shooters with fully automatic weapons.”

10:40: “All units, make sure your vehicles are locked. Citizens are trying to grab shotguns.”

10:52: “Control, 7-65. Designate me one large vehicle right now. I’m going to need a truck just north of this event. I got an officer with a gunshot wound to the head.”

11:22: “Control, Zebra 20…. I’m at the suspect’s door. I need everybody in the hallway to be aware of it and get back. We need to pop this and see if we can get an inside response from this guy, to see if he’s in here or if he has actually moved out to somewhere else.”

“Copy. All units on the 32nd floor. SWAT has explosive breach. Everyone in the hallways needs to move back. All units move back.”

“Breach, breach breach.”

Sound of gunshot.

“We have one suspect down.”

Control: “We need air clear for Zebra 20. They have one suspect down inside the room.”

“Can you confirm the location of the suspect down, please?”

Control: “Zebra 20 is saying there is one down inside the room…at Mandalay Bay.”

“7 Victor. There’s one down, 32nd floor, Mandalay Bay.”

Control: “Is that room 135?”

“That’s affirmative. One suspect down in 135, floor 32, Mandalay Bay. I have the floor.”

12:29: “Suite 135-32, is that correct?”

Control: “32nd floor, room 135.”

Stephen Paddock lookalike seen in Atlantic City 5 days after Las Vegas shooting

Two days ago, 4chan message board picked up a tweet from YouFold2Me, a self-described “poker player,” of a video showing a Stephen Paddock lookalike at a gambling table in Atlantic City’s Harrah’s casino, on October 6, 2017, 5 days after the Las Vegas shooting massacre.

I hesitated to post about it, waiting for Professor Jim Fetzer to get back to me. Fetzer said he has a friend who’s very good at overlaying facial images to determine whether images of two individuals are of the same person.

What convinced me to do this post is that YouFold2Me’s tweet was taken down by Twitter.

It no longer exists.

You can verify it for yourself by going to the URL of that tweet: https://twitter.com/YouFold2Me/status/916353438446956544

Ask yourself why Twitter would take it down unless, of course, the man in the video is Stephen Paddock.

Happily, the video was saved. Here it is in MP4 format, which you can save to your hard drive:

Below are comparison pics of Paddock and Atlantic City man.

Note these similarities:

  • Same receding hairline
  • Same forehead
  • Same sparse eyebrows
  • Same eyebrow ridges
  • Same ears
  • Same nose
  • Same mouth
  • Same nasolabial folds (lines along the sides of mouth)
  • Same chin
  • Same crooked pinkie finger of left hand
  • Same brand & checkered shirt, though of different colors
  • Both are gamblers
  • Both are pictured with a Filipina companion

What’s the probability that all these similarities would be due to random chance? What do you think?

If Atlantic City man is Paddock, that means the authorities had lied to us that Stephen Paddock was the “lone gunman” who killed 58 and wounded more than 500 on the night of October 1, 2017, in Las Vegas.

Not to mention the fact that the dead man in Paddock’s alleged 32nd-floor suite in Mandalay Bay hotel is not Stephen Paddock because dead man does not have the “13” tattoo on Paddock’s neck. (But then, neither does Atlantic City man.)

Las Vegas shooting massacre: Muzzle flashes from Mandalay Bay hotel

There are people who say the automatic-weapon fire that killed 58 and wounded 500+ concert goers in Las Vegas on the night of October 1, 2017, did not come from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, where police and FBI say  lone gunman Stephen Paddock had a suite.

Here’s a video, uploaded to LiveLeak, which was taken right outside and below the Mandalay Bay hotel on the night of the shooting.

https://www.liveleak.com/ll_embed?f=295176aafeca

The video shows flashes from the window of a top floor of the 45-stories Mandalay Bay hotel, beginning at the 2:21 mark and ending at the 2:22 mark.

Here’s a screen shot I took at the 2:21 mark of the video. I’ve circled the flash in yellow:

The flash appears to have come from the left broken window on the 32nd floor, as shown by this side-by-side comparison of the screenshot from the video (left) and a daylight view of Mandalay Bay showing two broken windows on the 32nd floor (right).

But wait!

The screenshot from the video has the words “Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino” at the top of the building, but the daytime view has just the words “Mandalay Bay” on top.

I’ve scoured the net for photos of the exterior of Mandalay Bay. In every photo I’ve seen, the hotel has just the words “Mandalay Bay” at the top, not “Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino”.

As Alice in the Wonderland would say: “Curiouser and curiouser!”

The video also shows that after the last volley of automatic rifle shots ended at the 2:55 mark, there was silence, until the 3:25 mark when a single-shot is fired, followed by a second single-shot 10 seconds later at the 3:35 mark.

Reportedly, an unarmed Mandalay Bay security guard named Jesus Campos was the first to take on gunman Paddock on the 32nd floor, and was shot in the leg by Paddock firing through a door. Was that the first single shot heard at the 2:55 mark in the video?

Was the second single-shot 10 seconds later the shot that killed Paddock?

update:

A reader pointed out that what I mistook for the façade of Mandalay Bay hotel is actually a very large advertisement. (Face palm)

But then that raises another question — why would an advertisement emit muzzle flashes?

Update (Oct. 9):

Thanks to a brilliant FOTM reader, MomOfIV, the mystery is solved.

The “Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino” words are on top of an ad in a bus stop right beneath the hotel. The flashes must then be reflections of muzzle flashes originating from the hotel. In the pic below (from Google Map), I’ve circled in yellow the bus stop ad.
