Anti-gun Journalist Admits Wife Wished for Gun When Criminal Struck

Anti-gun Journalist Admits Wife Wished for Gun When Criminal Struck

 

Don’t you just love titles like that? Putting my amusement aside, this is one of the main reasons I argue my point to anti-gun advocates.

Later on, Williams remarked, “Guns do not make me feel secure. Guns scare me. And it seems to me that we have an invitation here to have more guns.” – 

This has been one of my main points since the get-go. People are afraid of guns. Seeing a gun when you know how to handle them properly doesn’t normally strike you with fear. Most of the time, you can tell if someone is trained or not simply by how they are holding their gun, what their stance is like, etc. Having this knowledge and educating yourself on proper gun handling and training could save your life, so why are people afraid of it? Because people are afraid of what they don’t understand and what they’ve never done. Think back to when you first learned to drive a car. Did the thought of having NO idea what you were doing freak you out a bit? It sure did for me! Driving now has become second nature. The same thing happens with a gun.

Secondly, once people realize that they CAN be victims of crime, they start to look at the world in a whole new light. My post yesterday about the naked man attacking a woman through her sunroof– did you listen to her in the video? She was sobbing, saying how afraid she was now because she didn’t know that could happen to her. She also commented that this incident has made her more aware of her surroundings. Now think back to the post I put about a week ago on my own personal experience. I was just some care-free college student walking around alone in a dark parking lot at night. Did I think anything could happen to me? No. Do I realize now that I could be attacked at any moment? Yes, because things happen. Attackers don’t come after you when they feel that you are aware that they’re there. Now this lady. She had her back turned and was messing with her credit card. Boom. Her car was stolen. LUCKILY she wasn’t hurt. Things like this could happen to me or you or anyone else at any moment. Call me paranoid, I don’t really care.

Carrying a gun is for YOUR safety. Studies have shown that carrying a gun actually makes your attacker LESS likely to target you.

The work of Florida State Professor of Criminology Gary Kleck determined that “[r]obbery and assault victims who used a gun to resist were less likely to be attacked or to suffer an injury than those who used any other methods of self-protection or those who did not resist at all.”

Harvard Study Reveals Gun Control is Counterproductive

I would like to share this article I recently found. I was going to give you the website but it looks like is has been removed. Incase the cached copy gets deleted as well, I’ll share this with you. Please notice that the link to the study is attached as well.

Once again, a study from an organization that you would never accuse of being “gun-loving” or “right-wing” seems to disprove the myth that the availability of handguns increases murder rates.  In fact, it doesn’t.

The Harvard study attempts to answer the question of whether or not banning firearms would reduce murders and suicides.  Researchers looked at crime data from several European countries and found that countries with HIGHER gun ownership often had LOWER murder rates.

 

Russia, for example, enforces very strict gun control on its people, but its murder rate remains quite high.  In fact, the murder rate in Russia is four times higher than in the “gun-ridden” United States, cites the study.  ”Homicide results suggest that where guns are scarce other weapons are substituted in killings.”  In other words, the elimination of guns does not eliminate murder, and in the case of gun-controlled Russia, murder rates are quite high.

 

The study revealed several European countries with significant gun ownership, like Norway, Finland, Germany and France – had remarkably low murder rates.  Contrast that with Luxembourg, “where handguns are totally banned and ownership of any kind of gun is minimal, had a murder rate nine times higher than Germany in 2002.”

 

The study found no evidence to suggest that the availability of guns contributes to higher murder rates anywhere in the world.  ”Of course, it may be speculated that murder rates around the world would be higher if guns were more available. But there is simply no evidence to support this.”

Further, the report cited, “the determinants of murder and suicide are basic social, economic, and cultural factors, not the prevalence of some form of deadly mechanism.”  Meaning, it’s not guns that kill people.

People kill people.

Democratic Senator Charged In Gun Trafficking Scheme With Muslim Rebels

California State Senator and gun-control advocate, Leland Yee, has been indicted on charges related to gun trafficking. FBI Special Agent, Emmanuel Pascua, filed a 137 page sworn affidavit (view full version here) outlining his charges, which included that Yee’s gun trafficking involved Muslim rebels in the Philippines, or more specifically, Mindanao.

According to the affidavit, Keith Jackson (political consultant and Yee’s alleged partner in crime) contacted the undercover FBI agent on March 4, 2014 to set up a meeting and discuss Yee’s request to find a new weapons supplier. At the meeting the next day, the FBI agent identified Dr. LIM as the point of contact in the weapons deal between the Yee and the Philippines.

During the meeting between Yee and the undercover agent, Senator Yee explained how Dr. LIM was originally from the Mindanao region and that Muslim rebels had no issue with kidnapping, murdering, or holding individuals for ransom in exchange for money in order to successfully overthrow their government. 

The undercover agent and Yee then went on to discuss weapons such as shoulder-fire missles and/or rocks and semi-automatics. Yee was told he would be given $2 million in cash to pay for high-powered artillery and the shipment of weapons to North Africa (most likely to be sold to Muslim rebels for the same reason). 

Why would someone do this? The surface answer is simple– Yee is running for CA Secretary of State. Because of this, he willingly engaged in soliciting illegal campaign donations in exchange for trafficking firearms from Russia to the US to sell to Muslim rebels in the Philippines. But what about what’s underneath? So many people can easily forget about the whole thing in a couple of weeks because they don’t see that there is an underlying problem here.

Look at page 101 of the affidavit where Yee claimed that the Philippine government was secretly funding Muslim groups in order to create a distraction from government corruption. Do these points not add up to something strangely similar to the gun-running operation that put weapons staight into the hands of Mexican drug cartels? Wake up people. You have a Democratic State Senator who is willing to aid an Islamist terrorist group all for the sake of funding his own campaign. He was caught and his story is out in the open, but are you honestly not willing to admit there are most likely more of the same scumbags out there that our state/country elected?! Do you not think there was another motive behind this? This gun-control advocate lied through his teeth. He doesn’t oppose guns, he opposes guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens! 

Lies, hypocrisy, deceipt. All reasons why we need to start asking why senators, congressmen, law makers, and our president all want to disarm America.

Scary thing is, it is possible that like Yee, we have more “leaders” trying to get you to buy into the lies about gun violence. Why? So that you’ll fight their battle to disarm America. Why? Because like the Muslim rebels in the Philippines, we have people in power who want to overthrow a large body. It looks to me that in America’s case it’s not the government these leaders are looking to destroy, it’s the people. 

 

Pregnant Woman Raped in Horrific Home Invasion

Three suspects are accused of the break-in: Kristopher Hughes, 20, Michon Thomas, 22, and Eric Bass, 23. They face charges of conspiracy to commit armed robbery, armed robbery, and six counts each of first degree sexual assault.  

Less than a month ago, news stories reported of a horrific home invasion where a young couple was beaten and sexually assaulted. 

Madison Police say that the three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home around 5am on February 23. Police say the intruders were aware it was not the intended home but proceeded to attack a legally blind man and a 6 month pregnant woman anyways. The man was beaten and the pregnant woman was raped and forced to perform oral sex for almost 45 minutes.

“I can tell you that in my 27-plus years of policing here in Madison, this is probably one of the most disturbing and heinous crimes that I’ve ever seen,” says Interim Chief Randy Gaber.

The victims were then put in a dark laundry room to wait as their belongings were taken. Once they believed the intruders were gone, they tried to seek help of neighbors down the street. With no response, they then called 911. 

Quote from ABC News:

“Is someone here?” the man called out from bed. A suspect then turned on the bedroom light and three men burst into the room, demanding money.

“Someone’s gonna die tonight,” one suspect said, according to the complaint. One suspect was allegedly wearing a mask from the movie “Scream.”

The female victim told the three men repeatedly that she was pregnant, and that the men could take what they wanted from the house.

Reports say Hughes pulled the male victim from bed, laid him on his back and began hitting him in the face with a gun and punching and kicking his body.

Another suspect pulled the woman from bed and ordered her to lie on her stomach in the hallway, the report says. A suspect allegedly took a handgun and put it to the woman’s stomach, saying, “You’re going to die tonight.”

All three men are accused of sexually assaulting the woman, and one is accused of forcing her to perform oral sex.

One week later, 3 more were charged for helping plan and carry out the attack.

This couple had opted not to own a personal defense firearm in their home. Could imagine if they did? Could all of this have been prevented? What people fail to realize is that violent crimes can happen to anyone. It isn’t just things you see on TV, read on the news, or have horrific nightmares about. It is a reality even in neighborhoods where you think you’re safe. It doesn’t matter if you’re a good person, have lots of friends, have no enemies. Heck, these scum bags didn’t even care that the people they were attacking were legally blind without glasses and pregnant! Perhaps they didn’t want a firearm around for protection because guns are “icky” “dangerous” “violent” and oh, they kill people. In any event, bad things happen to good people. When are you going to stop leaving your family out in the open to become a victim of a crime like this? I not blaming this couple of what happened to them. I can see and understand how they would believe that because they carry on normal lives, don’t engage in risky behaviors, and they have a child on the way that no one would hurt them. Stories like these should cause people to wake up! Instead you hear all about how these criminals had a gun. Exactly. THEY’RE CRIMINALS. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT LAWS OR IF THEY’RE BREAKING THEM. Why aren’t the media focusing more on why the victims didn’t have a gun? 

If this couple had a gun by their bedside and had quick access, do you think the woman would have been raped? Do you think the man would have been beaten?
