NY Times Columnist Pens Anti-Gun Piece, Kyle Kashuv Totally Demolishes It

Nice work, Mr. Kashuv!

Conservative Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv, a young man who has found himself thrust into the public arena as he continues to battle in favor of the Second Amendment, was provided a prime opportunity to showcase the power of the truth when a zealous anti-gun columnist for the New York Times penned a piece in favor of gun control.

Kashuv took the opportunity as a challenge and ended up thoroughly dismantling Nicholas Kristof’s arguments with extreme prejudice.

This kid gives us all a lot of hope for the future.

Anyway, in Kristof’s column, he listed what he referred to as “10 modest steps” to reduce gun violence, a list that necessitated an entire article, but got destroyed in a Twitter thread.

Kristof’s first three points were:

1. “Require universal background checks to see if a purchaser is a felon or a threat to others.”

2. “Improve background checks by allowing the federal government adequate time to perform them.”

3. “Pass “red flag laws” that allow a judge to order the temporary removal of a gun from people who are a threat to themselves or others.”

Kashuv responded with the following three points:

The fourth point of Kristof’s piece was “Get guns out of the hands of domestic abusers.”

Kashuv wrote the following in response:

“The intimate relationship numbers are useless because they also include crimes committed against prostitutes by Johns and Pimps. Women shouldn’t be concerned about all men, but those who have a violent criminal history. 90% of adult murderers have a violent criminal history. When you see how relatively small murders are involving women, you get an idea how important these considerations are. Women, because they are weaker physically, also benefit much more from owning guns then men do.”

Points 5 and 6 of Kristof’s nonsense include the following:

5. “Require safe storage of guns, preferably in a safe or at least with a trigger lock.”

6. “Make serial numbers harder to file off, and require microstamping, so that cartridges can be traced back to the gun that fired the bullets.”

And, again, Kashuv’s brilliant replies:

Let’s round out the slaughter with the remaining four points and the laser point precision of Kashuv to thoroughly shut down the argument:

7. “Invest in ‘smart guns’ that require a PIN, fingerprint or nearby bracelet to fire.”

8. “Support community anti-violence programs, like Cure Violence and Becoming a Man, that work with at-risk young people and show excellent success in reducing shootings.”

9. “Limit buyers in most cases to one or two gun purchases a month, to reduce gun trafficking.”

10. “Invest in gun buybacks.”

Boom.

The bottom line is, it’s every citizen’s right to own a firearm for the means of protecting themselves against tyrannical government leadership and criminals who desire to steal their property or harm them in some way.

This is a right given to us by God, therefore, no government ever has the right to infringe upon it.

Let’s all follow in Kashuv’s footsteps and work toward defending our Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
