Once again, we see the progressive socialist democrats and their mainstream media propagandists suggesting that white male gun-owners are somehow collectively responsible for the mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado. Ten individuals, including Eric Talley, 51, a Boulder police officer since 2010, were shot and killed by a lone gunman who opened fire at a King Soopers supermarket. The shooter’s motive remains unknown, but the word is that he used an “AR-style rifle” in the attack.
According to a police spokesperson, “The only person who suffered a significant injury was the suspect. The suspect was taken to Boulder Community Health’s Foothills Hospital. It is believed that this is a picture of the wounded shooter, although police refused to identify the person in the picture as the shooter.
The timing could not be better for the gun control crowd…
Can Colorado cities enact their own gun restrictions? A Boulder judge says no.
A judge blocked Boulder from enforcing its 2-year-old ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines in the city, setting up the chance for the state Supreme Court to review whether Colorado cities can create their own restrictions on gun ownership.
Boulder County District Court Judge Andrew Hartman ruled Friday that the city can’t enforce its ordinance banning the possession, transfer or sale of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines because state law says local governments can’t prohibit the possession or sale of firearms.
“These provisions are invalid, and enforcement of them is enjoined,” Hartman wrote in his ruling. “The Court has determined that only Colorado state (or federal) law can prohibit the possession, sale and transfer of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines.”
Boulder city attorneys will meet with outside counsel this week to decide how to move forward and whether they will appeal Hartman’s decision, city spokeswoman Shannon Aulabaugh said. The Boulder Police Department will not enforce the ordinance unless there is a later court ruling undoing Hartman’s decision, she said. <Source>
Look for a renewed push to strip citizens of their Second Amendment rights using emotion, not logic nor facts.
It’s beginning, the useful idiots in the social media are spinning the shooting into a political agenda…
Notice it is all about the weapon, rarely the individual pulling the trigger. But, then again, the prosecution and incarceration of individuals do not allow the progressive socialist democrats to disarm a law-abiding citizenry in violation of their God-given inalienable rights. Perhaps, necessary to make things easier on politicians and government entities moving leftward toward tyranny?
According to Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty, “This is a tragedy and a nightmare for Boulder County. These were people going about their day, doing their shopping. I promise the victims and the people of the state of Colorado that we will secure justice.”
In my opinion, there are no circumstances that suggest leniency -- and justice demands the death penalty – and not ten to twenty years later. Yet, we have the Biden Administration openly condemning the death penalty for the most clear-cut of cases. We will wait to see if Biden’s Attorney General fights to re-impose the death penalty on the Boston Marathon bomber in a case now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.
There is no law in the land that will prevent crazies, criminals, or terrorists from obtaining a weapon and committing a heinous act upon other individuals. To deny individuals, their God-given rights of self-defense is both immoral and unconstitutional.
And, to the progressive socialist democrats who want to defund the police and replace them with mental health counselors, which mental health professional wants to walk up to the shooter and talk him, face-to-face, into surrendering?
Sensationalism attracts an audience, and an audience attracts advertising revenues and political power. These things happen from time-to-time, and through the power of the mainstream media or social media platforms are amplified, repeated, and exploited on a near-endless loop – turning a local tragedy into a national disaster that can be federalized by power-hungry politicians seeking media attention and campaign contributions.
Violence has always been part of human nature since the dawn of civilization. We can suppress it with morality and civility, but we cannot eliminate it completely. Likewise, those inclined to violence will always find another means to carry out their heinous acts. To disarm a law-abiding citizenry is to encourage more thuggery, murder, and mayhem.
Look at any inner city governed by progressive socialist democrats with their repressive gun control laws and lax criminal prosecutions and ask why they don’t do more to curtail massive black-on-black shootings? Why do minority gangs still exist? And, why is the judicial industry, and the lawyers that make the laws, still profiting from drugs and serious crime?
We may be screwed. But, under the Second Amendment, we can choose to protect ourselves from being on our knees, sniveling, and begging for the lives of our family. That is American individualism, and a weapon is only an equalizer in a desperate fight.
Take a moment and say a prayer for the victims and their families. Especially for the officer who risked everything as he was first through the door.
