New NRA Leader Sets Record Straight on School Shootings in One Sentence

Nailed it.

Published

on

New National Rifle Association President Oliver North weighed in on the recent school shooting in Texas and let it be known in no uncertain terms that the Second Amendment isn’t the root of the problem and that limiting gun rights isn’t going to solve anything.

His comments come two days after a 17-year-old Santa Fe High School Student opened fire in the school, killing 10 people and injuring 13 others. This was the 16th school shooting this year.

“I believe that we can make sure kids are protected without taking away the rights of law-abiding citizens,” North, a former Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, told “Fox News Sunday.”

North called for metal detectors in schools and pushed the National Rifle Association’s “school shield” agenda, which he said offers school’s a free security assessment that includes looking at how people enter and exit buildings.

North on Sunday also suggested that much or at least part of the problem with school shootings is young people, mostly males, being exposed to a culture of violence and being on Ritalin, a medication prescribed largely to help with attention deficit disorder, or ADD.

“We are trying like the dickens to treat the symptoms, not the disease,” North later said. “The disease isn’t the Second Amendment.”

North is spot on in his assessment, as these school shootings are indicative of a cultural problem, not a problem with the right to bear arms.

Just think about it. Why have these shootings become so common all of the sudden? It’s been hundreds of years since the founding of our nation and the passage of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Yet the vast majority of violent incidents at school have taken place in the last twenty or thirty years, most occurring in the last decade.

Why?

Well, for starters, parents are less involved in their childrens’ lives, many having to work extremely long hours just to make ends meet. On top of that you have the erosion of the traditional family unit by liberals pushing gay marriage and transgenderism.

Without the presence of a strong male figure, a loving, nurturing mother, and a support system like the local church and schools reinforcing positive moral, biblical values taught in the home, you get a lost and confused generation like the kids growing up now, who are angry, feel cheated, and have no idea what to do with all of those conflicting emotions.

It’s a recipe for disaster.

The root of the problem is our nation’s shift to utter godlessness both at home, in the church, and at school. Without a solid, objective foundation for truth and morality, today’s children have no direction.

If you really want to change this phenomenon, then we need to start with culture, not politics.

Trouble In Paradise? Ilhan Omar Just Got Super Bad News About Her District

Uh, oh Spaghetti-Os!

Published

on

No one’s favorite congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has earned a reputation as an anti-Semite for her negative comments toward Israel and Jewish people, just got some very bad news about her district. According to a new report from financial website, 24/7 Wall Street, Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District is the worst congressional district in the entire country for black people. Uh oh. That’s not going to look too good on the progressive candidate checklist, is it? via TheBlaze: Researchers studied several key metrics using data from the U.S. Census Bureau: cost of living-adjusted median household income, unemployment and poverty rates, educational attainment, and homeownership rates. The data showed that Omar’s district has the greatest socioeconomic disparities between black and white Americans of any congressional district in the U.S. “Black area residents are about four times more likely to live below the poverty line than white residents and three times more likely to be unemployed. Disparate outcomes along racial lines in the district are largely the legacy of historic racism,” the study said. “Minneapolis is one of several Midwestern cities that enacted restrictive housing covenants and exclusionary zoning policies in the early 20th century. These policies impact residential patterns to this day.” Here’s the real kicker that’ll send liberals into hysterics. Each of the five worst districts for black Americans is represented by a Democrat. It actually gets worse than that. As it turns out, 25 out of 30 the worst congressional districts for blacks are run by liberals. Ouch. That pretty much explodes the narrative that Democrats are the party of the poor and marginalized, doesn’t it? Adding insult to injury, the vast majority of the nation’s most segregated cities are located within these districts. So, tell us again, Mr. Liberal, why in the world would we want you to…

Mayor Gets Pulverized After Posting Ridiculously Thoughtless Tweet In Wake Of Portland Violence

Oh look. Nero playing the fiddle why Rome burns.

Published

on

Just hours after violent rioting exploded in the city of Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler posted the most oblivious photograph ever to the Internet, featuring him and his wife, peacefully strolling through the city hand-in-hand as if nothing is going down in his burned out burg. This has led to massive pushback from folks all across the political spectrum, with many calling for Wheeler to step down from office. Honestly, that might not be a bad idea, seeing as how he’s done nothing to put radical left-wing group Antifa in check. via Daily Wire: https://twitter.com/tedwheeler/status/1163209418487394305 “Saturdays in Portland,” however, are a lot different. The day before Mayor Ted Wheeler’s post, Antifa activists targeted journalists and went after protesters, some of whom were members of the right-wing Proud Boys. Below is some of the ugly footage posted by journalist and Quilette editor Andy Ngo and others which has been conveniently ignored by Mr. Wheeler: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162833952190582785 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162901699318517761 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162828409367515139 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162844384141832192 The tweet from Mayor Wheeler, unsurprisingly, was ripped online for its oblivious nature. Twitter users, some claiming to live in Portland, pointed to the violent protesting in the city and Portland’s severe homelessness crisis. According to Portland Monthly, 2018 figures estimated 14,476 homeless people reside in the city. https://twitter.com/JNCassavetes/status/1163279121847222272 https://twitter.com/jtLOL/status/1163428604581220354 https://twitter.com/RedTails944/status/1163305483018465281 https://twitter.com/NeilAxelrod/status/1163309474125361152 https://twitter.com/belleofva/status/1163227272930873345 Seems Mayor Wheeler is just a tad bit out of touch with what’s happening in his city. Homelessness, massive violence and rioting, civil unrest. Hardly seems like an ideal time to post a picture of a peaceful stroll through the city. It’s like Nero watching Rome burn and playing the fiddle. The city could definitely use new leadership, perhaps someone with a more sensible approach to dealing with this sort of thing?
