Horrific Mass Shooting At California Festival Leaves Three Dead, Including 6-Year-Old Boy

This is so sad.

On Sunday evening, a shooter opened fire in the middle of the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California, leaving three people dead, including a six-year-old boy, and injuring at least a dozen other people before being taken out by police.

As you can imagine, the left wasted no time in immediately calling for gun control, immediately politicizing the situation before any of the facts surrounding the case were known, a habit they’ve long been in since the very beginning of the Obama administration.

President Trump and California Gov. Newsome have both weighed in on the tragedy.

“Initial reports said the shooter entered the festival area from a creek area outside of Christmas Hill Park, where the festival was held,” the paper reports. The chief of police told the press that the shooter appears to have used “some sort of tool” to cut through fencing so he could enter the festival without having to go through security, which included metal detectors.

The shooter, who has been identified as a 19-year-old male (his name is withheld here per Daily Wire policy on not releasing the names of mass shooters), was killed by law enforcement minutes after opening fire.

Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee said they were looking for a second suspect potentially tied to the attack, but police have not released a description of the suspect.

Jack Van Breen, a singer for a local band who was performing at the event said that he heard someone shout and ask the shooter why they were doing this. The reply from the shooter was allegedly, “because I’m really angry.”

Here’s how Trump responded to the shooting:

This is a totally tragic event, something that should’ve never happened. Unfortunately, we live in a world that is full of wicked, deceitful sinners who will give in to their base desires, caring little for how they hurt others.

Gun control is not the solution to this problem, no matter what the left might try to sell you on it. In fact, more gun free zones create these situations than they prevent. It’s a fact.

At the end of the day, what we really need is Jesus. The gospel and the spiritual renewal God alone brings is our only hope to overcome the wickedness in our world. Until we accept that and allow Christians to preach that message openly, it’s only going to get worse.

Social Media Giant Permanently Banishes Pro-Life News Outlet

So much for free speech.

1984

Our nation appears destined to fall into the clutches of a technological oligarchy, headed by the likes of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, and there is very little that can be done about it. These two men, who run Twitter and Facebook, respectively, have been ruling their public forums with an iron fist, hiding behind the concept that their private status is a workaround for the First Amendment.  Their gargantuan reach and influence has made it possible for them to act with impunity, steering the narrative on any number of subjects, from Donald Trump to the wonder of maternity. The latest affront to free speech comes to us from Facebook, where a pro-life news organization has been completely banished. Facebook permanently banned LifeSiteNews, a popular pro-life news outlet, for publishing “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.” As justification for unpublishing LifeSiteNews, Facebook cited an article posted on April 10, 2021, titled “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.” Facebook said they erase Facebook pages that publish “vaccine discouraging information on the platform.” The site’s staff was livid. “This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” said LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” Roberts said. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots.” This is just the latest in a long line of Orwellian moves by these social media mavens, and may in fact be just another harbinger of something far more sinister to come.

CDC Readies Cruises, Complete with Human Guinea Pigs

Fingers crossed!

As the world prepares for its grand reopening, there are a number of high value industries that are eagerly awaiting permission from medical authorities to resume operations. First and foremost, there are the service industries:  Places like restaurants, bars, music venues, and sports arenas whose entire livelihood depends on whether or not people are being allowed to gather in public.  While many of these venues are now beginning to ramp up their capacity, there are issues bringing some of these workers back into the fold thanks to the enhanced unemployment benefits provided by the federal government. And then there’s the tourism industry, whose regulatory structure is far more susceptible to interference by government agencies. Now, after over a year of stagnation, it appears as though at least one facet of this wide-ranging corporate amalgam will be given a chance to sail on. Cruise lines can soon begin trial voyages in U.S. waters with volunteer passengers helping test whether the ships can sail safely during a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave ship operators final technical guidelines Wednesday for the trial runs. The CDC action is a step toward resuming cruises in U.S. waters, possibly by July, for the first time since March 2020. A spokeswoman for the cruise industry’s trade group said the group was reviewing the CDC instructions. So, how will this work? Each practice cruise — they’ll run two to seven days — must have enough passengers to meet at least 10% of the ship’s capacity. Volunteers must be 18 or older and either fully vaccinated or free of medical conditions that would put them at high risk for severe COVID-19. The ship operator must tell passengers that they are simulating untested safety measures “and that sailing during a pandemic is an inherently risky activity,” the…
