In 2013 – according to the FBI – 8,583 people of all ages, and under all circumstances died from some form of FATAL SHOOTING.
In 2013 – according to the US Department of Transport – 10,076 people of all ages died specifically at the hands of DRUNK DRIVERS.
FROM THESE US GOVERNMENT STATISTICS . . . based upon LEFTIST and White House Logic – WE CAN ONLY COME TO ONE CONCLUSION . . . BAN CARS.
THUS FAR . . . from January 1, 2015 to DATE – And I really do mean up to the minute, because from the writing of this editorial (October 4, 2015), there have already been 2,332 SHOOTINGS IN CHICAGO.
From this Chicago Tribune Statistic . . . the only conclusion I can make is . . . BAN CHICAGO.
FOR GOOD MEASURE . . . I should also include Detroit, St Louis and Baltimore, where DRIVE-BY Shootings have become a part of their culture.
And once again, if we were to follow the Obama and LEFTIST conclusions . . . let’s BAN Detroit, St Louis and Baltimore . . . no one in the USA would miss them all that much anyway.
Guns do not kill . . . and there’s no stopping MENTAL ILLNESS.
And in spite of what the LEFT and Obama have to say, the only way to STOP someone with a mental grudge from killing innocent people . . . is an innocent person with a gun of his or her own.
THE NRA CANNOT SAY IT TOO OFTEN . . . The only way to stop a BAD GUY with a gun, is with a GOOD GUY with a gun. IT CANNOT BE CLEARER THAN THAT.
Anne and I have come into contact with plenty of LEFTISTS, who think guns should be banned, and no one outside of law enforcement should have the right to own and carry guns. And our response to these people is always THUS . . . no one forces you to own or carry a gun. SO DON’T.
Later into the evening, as I was sitting with Pamela Geller in the lobby of the 5-Star Hotel where the function was held after her speech, which was delivered on behalf of our Pledge Ride, Anne was walking Stryker in the rear of the property, when a man approached her to make conversation about Stryker (our 92-pound German Shepherd).
And just to the side of where this man approached Anne and Stryker, were two security guards looking-on. But given Stryker’s size, weight, and carriage, no one in their right mind will mess with Anne in his company.
Personally . . . I figure he was hitting on my wife, for which I can’t blame him, but I digress. Initially, he asked Anne about Stryker, which everyone does when making small talk, which led to where he asked Anne where she was from.
So, when she said Canada, this guy lit-up like a LEFTIST Christmas Tree, gushing about Canadian FREE Healthcare that he wished was in the USA, and Canadian GUN LAWS, which he also wished were in the USA. To which Anne said; that the HYPE about either was better than the reality.
AND OFF HE WENT AT THE LIP . . . talking about gun violence, and the need to BAN guns. So imagine how he felt when Anne with the BIG German Shepherd said that she is a Gun Owner – AND THAT SHE DOESN’T DEBATE WITH LEFTISTS?
With that said, and his mouth agape . . . Anne just walked away, leaving the jerk all by himself, near the two security guards who were now smiling with appreciation, as Anne walked by them with Stryker in tow.
