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.

Supreme Court Says No To Fast-Tracking Obamacare Decision; Pushes It Back Until Election Is Over

Published

on

The Supreme Court has decided they will not take up a challenge to Obamacare, opting instead to wait until after the 2020 presidential election is over before making any kind of decision on the issue. Part of the reason for the delay is that it removes pressure from Republicans and the current administration to cook up a backup proposal for the law. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: The timeline removes the immediate threat that the whole law will be struck down, including its popular rules prohibiting insurers from turning away the sick, allowing President Trump to focus his attacks on Democratic proposals such as “Medicare for all.” It will also make it more difficult for Democrats to run on protecting Obamacare, a political strategy that has proved advantageous to them in the Trump era. The case in question, Texas v. Azar, is the result of a lawsuit by Republican state officials who said that Obamacare must be struck down on the grounds that it lost a critical component when the 2017 GOP tax overhaul zeroed out its fine on the uninsured. Republicans, who had the support of the Trump administration, said the fine had been central to Obamacare and that the rest of its provisions would not work and should not stand without it. Judge Reed O’Connor, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, agreed with the GOP states, but the case was appealed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. On Dec. 18, the appellate judges ruled 2-1 that the health insurance mandate was unconstitutional but that the rest of the law needed further analysis by the lower courts to see whether some parts could be separated out and others could not. Liberal states that are defending Obamacare had urged the Supreme Court to take up the…

Hollywood Actor Michael Douglas Announces Endorsement Of Michael Bloomberg

Published

on

Hollywood has become a central hub of left-wing Democratic Party activity, so it’s not exactly a shock when a major actor or celebrity comes out and endorses a Democratic candidate for president. In fact, it would be shocking to see the opposite occur, but honestly, given the obvious bias in the industry, there’s very little worry that would ever happen. Legendary actor Michael Douglas, most recently known for the role of Hank Pym in Marvel’s Ant-Man film series, has announced he’s backing former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for president. Douglas made the announcement in a video released on Tuesday. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “I feel so blessed that in this particularly difficult time that we have one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections,” Douglas told People magazine, adding that he “hasn’t been this excited” about a presidential candidate since John F. Kennedy. The actor said he saw the addition of Bloomberg, 77, to the 2020 Democratic presidential primary as a “rare opportunity to coalesce and bring us back together, get rid of all this horrid, negative scare tactics that are going on, and the fact that he’s succeeded to the degree that he has is phenomenal.” At the conclusion of his endorsement, Douglas, who starred in films such as The American President, Fatal Attraction, and Ant-Man, called Bloomberg “a president America needs.” Bloomberg hasn’t been shy about making it clear he supports the removal of Donald Trump as the president under the impeachment charges brought against him by the House of Representatives. He clarified that he believes impeachment is very divisive, but “there’s just so much evidence that [Trump] acted inappropriately.” Democrats keep talking about all of the evidence that supports impeachment, but the question remains. Where’s it at?
