The anti-gun lobby has to share responsibility for the nine people shot to death at a Bible study in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17.
Because thanks to the disarmament brigade, the government of South Carolina assured Dylann Roof, or whoever the triggerman was, that once the shooter was inside the church, nobody would be shooting back.
South Carolina, you see, has a concealed-carry law that expressly forbids anyone bringing a gun into a church.
If you have a license to carry a gun except in certain places — like churches — then those certain places become government-sanctioned shooting galleries. Churches in South Carolina are free-fire zones.
The goody-two-shoes lobby that wrote that caveat into the state’s restrictive firearms law set those nine victims up for target practice.
They probably argued at the time it was enacted that they were protecting parishioners from anyone wielding a gun.
All the evidence shows how wrong they were. The only one protected by that law was the shooter. That means nobody else had a chance.
Disarmament is high on the agenda of National Socialism, just as it was when the Nazi scourge ran the table in Europe. Make sure the oppressed can’t fight back so they’ll all trudge off happily to Auschwitz.
It might escape attention elsewhere, but the massacre in Charleston occurred on what is celebrated as Bunker Hill Day in Massachusetts.
That provides us an opportunity to mention the gun control laws that were in effect in colonial times.
In 17th century Massachusetts, everyone was taxed to support the Congregational Society (the state church) and everyone was required to attend Sunday worship services at the meeting house. All able-bodied inhabitants were required to bring their weapons to church. That was the law.
Take your time to chew on that.
Families were required to bring their guns to church. Sentinels were posted at the doors. The manufacture of gun powder was a staple industry at the time. Journeys from home to Sunday services could be arduous and dangerous. They had to deal with hostile Indians. Wild beasts still prowled the wilderness the way deranged killers stalk gathering places today.
The message was simple: for your own sake and the sake of others, make sure you are armed. That was the law.
The progressives — the Nazis of today passing as Democrats — are a thousand times dumber than those who settled America 400 years ago.
Two days after the Charleston massacre, MSNBC used its Ed Schultz Show to let Democrat activist Bob Shrum put his party’s malarkey on parade.
It is Shrum’s considered opinion that the carnage was kept to a minimum because the black parishioners were unarmed.
“Now I cannot imagine the horror that could have occurred if people were sitting around with concealed weapons, this thing started, and you have a full-scale gunfight. You might not even have three survivors.”
There you have the liberal mind in a nutshell: it would have been worse if somebody had shot the shooter. Well actually, that is what President Obama and his cadre of lying toadies are going to peddle to the legislatures so they can exterminate worshipper’s the way South Carolina does.
One shooter killed 12 people and injured 70 others because the audience at a midnight screening of a movie in Aurora, Colorado was unarmed.
With one day to live, mayflies enjoy a higher I.Q. than Democrats.
All the proof lawmakers need that their thinking is ass-end-to can be found in Kennesaw, Georgia. It passed an ordinance in 1982 that says,
“In order to provide for the emergency management of the city, and further in order to provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants, every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition therefor.”
The first year it was in effect, crimes against persons dropped by 74 percent. The next year it fell by another 45 percent. Murders in Kennesaw are nonexistent. Burglaries barely appear on the charts.
The mainstream news media will not share this new gospel with you because they favor the agenda crafted by your political leaders. That is, your right to keep and bear arms is too precious to be put to use when you and your neighbors only believe it is needed.
