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.

Mnuchin To Request More Funds From Congress If Small Businesses Use Up $350B In Forgivable Loans

Published

on

Treasure Secretary Steven Mnuchin stated on Wednesday that should small businesses use up all of the $350 billion in loans to be administered by the Small Business Association to help keep them afloat during the social distancing measures being taken to contain the coronavirus. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “One of the things I’ve heard is this small business program is going to be so popular that we’re going to run out of the $350 billion. If that’s the case, I can assure you that will be at the top of the list for me to go back to Congress on,” he told CNBC. The relief bill provides $350 billion to small businesses and other entities with zero-fee loans of up to $10 million to help cover payroll. These loans are available to businesses with 500 employees or less. The loans are forgivable to the extent that they are used to maintain payroll and pay other overhead. The loans are expected to be disbursed on a first-come-first-serve basis. Outside economists have said that the $350 billion allocation is much less than will be needed by small businesses looking to retain their workers. Earlier this week, Mnuchin stated that the loans included in the coronavirus relief package past last week would be available this Friday. Mnuchin spoke with Fox Business saying, “I’ve said these loans will be available starting on Friday, which will be at lightning speed. We hope later today that we’ll be releasing the documents and the instructions.” The coronavirus is continuing to wreak havoc on the United States as the death toll from the virus hits 4,000, which takes our numbers higher than those of China where the illness originated from.

Devin Nunes Says School Closures Over Coronavirus Are ‘Way Overkill’

Published

on

When it comes to discussions about safety measures taken to manage the spread of the coronavirus, there seems to be two camps. One camp doesn’t think this virus is all that big of a deal and we ought to just get back to living life as normal with no concern for the seriousness of the matter. The other camp freaks out and thinks everything under the sun must be banned and shutdown for the next few years — or so it seems — until the virus goes away. Both are extremes, and funny enough, both are extremely stupid. It seems that Rep. Devin Nunes, a Republican, falls into the first camp. Nunes recently came out and said that school closures over the virus are “way overkill.” Keep in mind, the virus has now killed 4,000 Americans, which is 700 more than the Chinese total of fatalities (if they are actually reporting their numbers accurately). Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: As they discussed former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb’s public health plan for how to combat the virus, Ingraham claimed it would mean people “can’t go back to a normal life” for 12 months. “Yeah, that’s not going to work. … The schools were just canceled out here in California, which is way overkill,” Nunes responded. “It’s possible kids could’ve went back to school in two weeks to four weeks, but they just canceled the rest of the schools. So, look: I’m optimistic here.” “If we don’t start to get people back to work in this country over the next week to two weeks, I don’t believe we can wait until, you know, the end of April. I just don’t know of any economy that’s ever survived where you unplug the entire economy and expect things to go…
