VIRGINIA SHOOTING - IN CONTEXT
Yes, it's tragic how 2 members of the exalted media class were murdered by their racist, disgruntled former colleague. Now that same sainted media class and political sycophants wish to incessantly drum "More Gun Control" in your brain, for it's "All About Them", and you will be forced to care.
Meanwhile, said murdering racist dirtbag passed numerous background checks. There's the rub: Future violence can only be predicted by past violent behavior, so what they want is "Minority Report" pre-crime tyranny on the 74,999,999 American gun owners who DIDN'T murder anyone yesterday.
For the purpose of illustration, remember how I said on the morning show that if you had every American gun owner stand shoulder to shoulder, the line would stretch 42,000 miles, almost TWICE around the earth. Were the large numbers of firearms and owners truly a problem you'd think we would be drowning in blood, but we're not. The truth is firearms deaths are at historic lows, 3.6 per 100,000 Americans, which includes cops shooting perps. (Look it up at the CDC)
Meanwhile, deaths by motor vehicle are around 16 per 100,000, almost 5 times the firearms death rate, and your motor vehicle isn't a constitutional right. Yes, the TV shooting is sad, but the lib media and political tyrants want to "play" your emotions, and strip everyone's liberty for their benefit. You're smarter than that - Put it in context, and don't buy the spin. It's NOT as bad as they want you to think. Liberty lives only if you defend it.
EMAIL OF THE DAY - PATRICK COWDREY
It seems to me that this tiff between Trump and Ramos shows the
immigration problem in profile.
Here we have Ramos cutting to the head of the line with an attitude of
Trump demonstrated his view of immigration policy under his
administration by deporting him, but letting him back in later.
Albeit at the end of the line.
I think it is very interesting when put into that perspective, how the
lame-stream media is spinning this event.
