Washington State gun control laws designed to punish law-abiding citizens

Demorats’ gun control laws are conduits to achieving their utopia: Removing firearms from law-abiding citizens.

Washington State (run by demorats) has implemented numerous gun control laws that have had no effect on criminal behaviors.

Earlier this month the Seattle Police Department (SPD) released its annual report on gun violence, and statistics show the number of shootings in 2019 is up from 2018. One of the causes is an increase in gang-related violence.

Instead of addressing the root cause of gun violence, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson believes part of the solution is to ban “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines.

Proof that demorats only want to control legal firearms is the fact that known criminals are routinely set free to terrorize tax-paying citizens. There is a severe lack of proper punishment for criminals due to – in my opinion – social justice warriors’ desire for “criminal justice reform.”

Look at what happened in Seattle this week: Three shootings where one person was killed. The majority injured happened at a shooting on Tuesday in downtown Seattle in broad daylight (7 injured, the 1 killed).

Guess who the perps were? “KNOWN GANG MEMBERS.”

MyNorthwest.com has more details about these KNOWN perps:

“KIRO 7’s Amy Clancy reports that police are searching for a pair of 24-year-old male suspects who are both “known to SPD,” according to a source in law enforcement.

Clancy went on to note that court documents reveal both suspects are “‘documented gang members’ with extensive criminal histories.” Those documents detail multiple arrests for robbery, theft, and false statements to a public servant among other charges, for one suspect, while the other had been “booked 11 times since 2014” for theft, domestic violence, a DUI, and violating a no contact order.”

MyNorthwest.com reports that 45 police units were dispatched to the scene at the time of the shooting.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said to expect a strong police present in the area “until further notice.”

Read the whole story here.

Until further notice you can expect that since the criminal justice system does not adequately punish criminals, they will not follow any gun control laws.

And until further notice, you can expect that demorats will continue in their efforts to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right.

Why a Red Flag Law is dangerous: democrat language and rhetoric

On Monday gun rights activists gathered in Richmond, Virginia to make their case against the gun-control demorats in that state.

The rally was peaceful and not one fight broke out – very much the exact opposite of Antifa gatherings. Heck, attendees at the rally even cleaned up after themselves!

But that hasn’t stopped the media and demorat gun grabbers from portraying the attendees as dangerous, racists white nationalists. See the following examples:

Rep. Don Beyer (demorat): “Annual gun lobby day protest in Richmond drew large numbers of white nationalists, militias, and racist conspiracy theorists this year. Neo-Nazis tried to use this rally to launch violent attacks. Trump’s symbolism and memories of Charlottesville are vivid in many minds today.”

HuffPo: “The Colossal Gun Rally In Richmond Was Co-Opted By Extremists

Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam: “We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation. I will continue to listen to the voices of Virginians, and will do everything in my power to keep our Commonwealth safe.”

Reported by Turning Point USA: “MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says today’s Peaceful Pro-2A #VirginiaRally sent an “explicit and implicit message” of “don’t you dare enact your policies, if you do we will use these guns against you.”

Media Hogg: “How many of these people do you think would support the Black Panthers right to carry? Or armed resistance to the white militias that stole the North American continent? Answer: none because they only want guns to enforce white supremacy.”

David Rothschild (a Twitter blue-checked verified economist): “The White Men (and they are all White Men, because non-White Men would not be safe in this crowd) are explicitly TERRORIZING US to demonstrate to lawmakers they will cause more TERROR if they pass gun safety measures the voters wanted and voted them into office to pass.”

Another one of David’s tweets: “The FACT that there were a handful of minorities at the rally designed to terrorize the Virginia lawmakers AND no one got shot, does invalidate the stated goals of the rally to terrorize Virginia lawmakers. Nor does it make the movement inclusive.”

As you can see, the narrative is that there were very, very dangerous people and gun owners at this rally.

Why is their hyperbole so dangerous? Because of this: “Virginia Senate advances ‘red flag’ gun law, despite rally”

From the AP article:

“The day after a massive gathering of gun-rights activists at the Virginia Capitol, the state Senate on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others.

The Democratic-led Senate gave preliminary approval to approved the so-called “red flag” law. The measure is set for a final vote in the Senate, likely Wednesday, before going to the House.”

I’d be curious to see the red flag law text that defines how a petitioner can deem someone is “dangerous” to others. Because based upon the inflammatory language demorats use, they will always deem us gun owners as a “danger.”

Virginia massive gun-rights rally: 22k participants include Blacks and LGBTs

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:

In response is a massive backlash by Virginia gun owners, who have formed Second Amendment sanctuaries and militias against the anticipate gun grab. As of  January 14, 2020, 130 counties and cities have passed sanctuary measures.

On Monday, January 20, some 22,000 patriots rallied at the state capitol in Richmond, VA, to lobby their legislators not to vote away Virginians’ Second Amendment-guaranteed gun rights.

There were rumors that Antifa planned to disrupt the rally. Indeed, according to a tweet by a rally participant @StoodAlive, Antifa were there, but they likely chickened out because of the massive show of force by patriots:

There are some ANTIFA members in the crowd posing as Trump supporters who are planning to start violence in-order for the media to blame Republicans and paint us as violent.

According to Getty Images, the Revolutionary Communist Party were the only counter protesters who attended the rally. Only one arrest was made — a female who police say repeatedly ignored their warnings to remove a mask that she was wearing, which means she likely was an Antifa.

Notwithstanding the hate-America media’s efforts to paint the rally as “white racist/nationalist/supremacist” (see DCG’s “NBC News reporter tries to set narrative for Lobby Day/gun rights rally in VA today“), the rally was peaceful and the participants were diverse, including Blacks, LGBTs, and Democrats (!). Some protesters even brought their babies.

Below are photo images from the rally as testimony (sources: Richmond Times Dispatch; Daily Wire).

We begin with this pic that brought tears to my eyes:

One look at this pic, you’ll totally understand why Antifa punks chickened out:

Sheriffs showed their support!

Blacks showed up in large numbers, a fact that went widely under-reported by the media. Some of them were armed.

One black Second Amendment supporter told Breitbart News:

“I do not support in any way, shape, or form Governor Northam’s and the Democrats’ gun control. What I also don’t support is the fact that every news piece you’ve seen this weekend they’ve always brought up the issue of race as though it’s nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here who care for the Second Amendment, when actually black Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Americans in general care about the Second Amendment. I work a gun store part-time and I can’t tell you the number of customers I see of all races, all colors, all creeds, who care about the Second Amendment and who just peaceably live their lives, enjoy their rights and the Second Amendment. So, that’s why I’m out here and big media, mainstream media be damned, if you take a good look at me you can see that I’m a black American and all I’m out here for is to enjoy my Second Amendment rights. That’s why I’m here.”

Here’s a Black man stating why he came to the rally.

A Black woman was at the “white supremacist” [eyeroll] rally.

LGBTs were at the rally, carrying the rainbow flag.

Some parents even brought their babies to the peaceful rally.

Hey, Gov. Northam and the Democrat legislators of Virginia, did you get the message loud and clear?

Bloomberg derides hero Jack Wilson: “It’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot”

According to The Hill, Nanny Bloomberg said this on January 1 when speaking about the Texas West Freeway Church of Christ hero Jack Wilson who stopped a shooter with his own gun:

“It may be true that someone in the congregation had his own gun and killed the person who murdered two other people, but it’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot,” the former mayor said earlier this month, adding, “You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.”

Check it out:

Tell you what, Mr. Nanny Bloomberg: I’d rather have an “average” citizen carrying a gun than a CRIMINAL. At least I’d know that we aren’t all sitting ducks.

And I’m guessing that Bloomberg doesn’t know ANY of the basic firearm safety rules, including “know your target and what’s behind it.”

That’s because this assh*le wouldn’t know the first thing about what us “average” citizens face because he is surrounded by private security. Freakin HYPOCRITE.

So if an assailant decides to break into my home, I have to call 911 and WAIT for them to arrive and WAIT for them to decide to shoot a perp who most likely might have done me harm/killed me by then?

That’s liberal logic for ‘ya. Bloomberg is truly a mental disorder.

NBC News reporter tries to set narrative for Lobby Day/gun rights rally in VA today

Yesterday Ben Collins, a reporter for NBC News, tried to frame the narrative for the Lobby Day protest in Virginia today. He tweeted – then deleted – the following:

He tweeted this because three men suspected of being members of a neo-Nazi hate group, including a former reservist in the Canadian Army, had weapons and discussed traveling Virginia’s rally.

After being schooled, he deleted the tweet and issued this correction:

“Hi everybody! I’m deleting a tweet so I can be super clear about tomorrow’s rally in Virginia.

The Lobby Day protest is and has traditionally been a gun rights rally, but white nationalists, including militant group The Base, have been planning violent action at the event.”

According to Breitbart, Moms Demand and Gov. Coonman have been trying to set the same narrative.

How ironic that a reporter warns others to verify information while he’s spreading #fakenews about an event that has yet to occur. Gotta get their narrative out there so it can be repeated and shared so the truth won’t matter.

Quite typical of the liberal hacks in media today.

Virginia anti-gun rights Gov. Northam (D) declares state of emergency

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:

In response is a massive backlash by Virginia gun owners:

  • Local officials have issued pro-Second Amendment statements vowing to protect citizens’ gun rights against state authorities.
  • Cities and counties are forming militias and sanctuaries (see “Virginians are forming sanctuaries and militias against the anticipated gun grab“). As of  January 14, 2020, 130 counties and cities have passed sanctuary measures.
  • Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), a grassroots gun-rights organization, called for a rally next Monday, January 20, at the state capitol in Richmond, to lobby VA legislators not to vote away Virginians’ Second Amendment-guaranteed gun rights. VCDL President Phillip Van Cleave told Liberty Nation “the state is green with sanctuaries” and that he expects a massive turnout.

Monday, January 20, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day — a day known as “Lobby day” in Virginia politics as advocates for a number of causes use the holiday to try and buttonhole lawmakers. On that day, pro-gun and gun-control advocates would hold rallies. Jeff Katz, the host of a popular radio show on WRVA, said thousands of citizens are expected at the gun-rights rally next Monday because “People are outraged. This is the tipping point.”

Democrat Ralph Northam had men in black face and a KKK hood in his 1984 medical school yearbook.

Reacting to the planned rally, Governor Northam declared a state of emergency banning guns and “weapons of all kinds” from the state capitol beginning tomorrow, January 17, through next Tuesday, January 21.

The Associated Press reports that on Jan. 15, 2020, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency over threats of “armed militia groups storming our Capitol” ahead of a gun-rights rally next Monday. The emergency order will ban weapons of all kinds, including firearms, helmets and shields, from the Capitol grounds starting Friday and continuing through Tuesday.

Northam said the emergency order was necessary to protect public safety because of potential violence from out-of-state groups at the Monday rally. Claiming that “law enforcement agencies” consider the rally to pose “credible, serious threats,” Northam said some of the rhetoric used by groups planning to attend Monday’s rally is similar to what was said in the lead-up to last year’s so-called “white nationalist” rally in Charlottesville, VA, and that “We will not allow that mayhem and violence to happen here.”

Virginia Republicans, who did not even field candidates in many precincts in last November’s election, thereby ceding victory to the Democrats, were mixed in their response:

  • VA House Minority Leader Del. Todd Gilbert lamented that “there are legitimate concerns of a few bad actors hijacking the rally.”
  • But Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Jack Wilson condemned Northam’s declaration in a statement: “Northam and the rest of the Virginia Democrats have made their session goal crystal clear: a disarmed, vulnerable, and subservient citizenry.”

Northam’s emergency announcement comes days after Democratic leaders used a special rules committee to ban guns inside the Capitol and a legislative office building. That ban did not include Capitol grounds, which are under the governor’s control.

InfoWars has an audio recording of an unnamed Virginia State police officer saying that Barack Obama is orchestrating (“running”) Northam’s state of emergency, and that “there are people in high places in [VA] government” who are “told to do…ignore Trump, pipe down, and the people are just scared and just frustrated.”

On the Todd Starnes radio show, Liberty University president, Jerry Falwell Jr. vows he will “call for civil disobedience if the Democrats go through with this [state of emergency]. You don’t mess with people’s guns in this part of the state. They [Democrats] don’t know what they’ve gotten into and they’re going to find out the hard way, I’m afraid.”

Despite more newly-enacted state gun control laws, Seattle’s gun violence is up

In May 2019 demorat Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bunch of new gun control laws claiming that they would “improve gun safety overall.”

Some of the laws included prohibiting firearms to persons under 21, temporarily seizing guns from people a judge deems a threat to themselves or others, and requiring certain secured firearm storage or trigger-locks.

The following month I did a blog post highlighting how ineffectively those new laws were preventing gun violence. See my post here.

On Friday, Seattle presented hard data that confirms the state’s new gun control laws are having ZERO effect on criminal behaviors in their city.

MyNorthwest.com reports that the Seattle Police Department (SPD) released its annual report on gun violence, and statistics show the number of shootings in 2019 is up from 2018. One of the causes is an increase in gang-related violence.

SPD records showed there were 332 shooting incidents in the city last year, an increase from 313 in 2018. There were also five more fatal shootings year over year.

At least the Department is solving 72% of the crimes, which is above the national average. Compare that to Chiraq’s dismal 12.2% clearance rate.

Heroism and Second Amendment rights set aside: USA Today pushes a gun control narrative

USA Today tweeted yesterday the following: “Opinion: Jack Wilson is exactly the type of person you want around with a gun because he’s a firearms instructor. But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns. And that’s terrifying.

“Journalist” Elvia Diaz

From the headline at the opinion piece: “Armed, even in church: Texas shooting is about a lot more than Jack Wilson’s heroism”

The author, a journalist named Elvia Diaz, further asks, “Jack Wilson is a hero. But why were so many other parishioners armed? And how did the shooter get his gun, given his criminal history?

She’s asking so many questions, let me help her out with a few answers…

For example, why must one be armed in church? Because evil exists EVERYWHERE, Elvia.
Why were so many parishioners armed? Because of the Second Amendment.
How did a criminal get a gun? Because criminals DO NOT FOLLOW the law.

Here’s excerpts from her opinion piece:

“Jack Wilson is a hero alright. It took him only six seconds to kill a gunman at a Texas church, saving countless lives.

Unfortunately, that kind of split-second heroism has been turned into a PR tool by gun advocates.

The reality of Wilson’s heroism is a lot more complex. He wasn’t just an ordinary parishioner, as gun advocates may want you to believe. The church’s volunteer security team member is a firearms instructor, gun range owner and former reserve deputy with a local sheriff’s department, according to a New York Times detailed account.

The real story here isn’t heroism

Of course, that wouldn’t matter to the churchgoers of that community of roughly 18,000 residents, right? What matters is that Wilson saved them with a single shot and other gun-wielding parishioners were ready just in case Wilson failed.

But have we really reached a point when each of us need to carry a firearm anywhere we go? Gun advocates certainly think so. They point to Wilson and the new Texas law that allows him and others to carry firearms inside the church.

The Second Amendment gives Americans the right to bear arms. And that isn’t going anywhere. But that constitutional amendment doesn’t spell out the types of firearms Americans should bear, nor does it give Americans the right to sell them to anyone to carry anywhere.

We know firearms are readily available to anyone who wants one, really. And that’s part of the problem. Sunday’s shooting isn’t just about Jack Wilson’s heroism. It’s about how Kinnunen got a hold of a weapon in the first place, given his criminal record.

If this womyn has NO CLUE as to how a criminal can obtain a gun as a prohibited possessor, I can’t help her. She’s intent on pushing a gun control narrative.

And shame on her for turning Jack Wilson’s excellent taxpayer relief shot that resulted in saving human lives into a “PR stunt” by gun advocates.

Mayor Lightfoot mad at President Trump because he won’t acknowledge Chiraq shootings down 40% (depends upon your baseline stat)

Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot can celebrate some sort of record?

This past Saturday Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot took issue with President Trump not recognizing some great accomplishment in her city. She tweeted this: “WATCH: Chicago shooting incidents are down sharply. But both Trump and largely the national media have been silent.”

Watch the MSNBC video here where they state that shootings are down 40% from three years ago.

The basis for their comparison claim is 2016 where Chiraq had 801 homicides and 4,380 shootings. That was a RECORD year of shootings/homicides that they have not seen in the past ten years.

Apparently the MSNBC and the good mayor are using this record-breaking year of shootings/homicides as the comparison to today’s rate to tout some improvement. But let’s take a closer look at the numbers, shall we?

Since 2014 Chiraq has averaged 2,975 shootings per year (I excluded the 2016 total as it was an anomaly). If the number of shootings were down 40%, there would have to be less than 1,785 shootings. As of Sunday morning, Chiraq had 2,736 shootings.

Since 2009 Chiraq has averaged 509 homicides per year (I excluded the 2016 total as it was an anomaly). As of Sunday morning, Chiraq had 508 homicides. So they basically have an average amount of homicides as they have every year since 2009.

So far this year in Chiraq:

2,736 shot
2,281 shot and wounded
10.6% homicide clearance rate

Clever trick for MSNBC and the good mayor to use a record-breaking year of shootings/homicides as the baseline for some great indicator that things are better in Chiraq.

I guess when you have no REAL accomplishment you have to spin the numbers so you can say #OrangeManBad.

See Chicago’s crime stats here and let me know if you really find anything you would brag about if you were the mayor of that crime-infested city.
