FOX NEWS July 26, 2015 – LAFAYETTE, La. – John Russell Houser was deeply troubled long before he shot 11 people in a movie theater in Louisiana, but decades of mental problems didn’t keep him from buying the handgun he used. Despite obvious and public signs of mental illness — most importantly, a Georgia judge’s order committing him to mental health treatment against his will as a danger to himself and others in 2008 — Houser was able to…Read Full Story
Monday, July 27, 2015 — He was adjudicated mentally ill. He was denied a concealed carry permit by police. He was known to be a danger to himself and to others. His family wanted to institutionalize him involuntarily. He still passed a background check and bought a gun and used it to shoot 11 people in a gun free zone theater. Now tell us again, Brady, demanding Moms, Gabby, VPC, CDC, Democrats, etc., etc., how will “expanded” and “universal” background checks you propose work?
While we’d like to holler “Enough, already!,” about the Louisiana theater shooting, the liberal media won’t let us put the issue back in the toy box. The national media is both fascinated and purpose-driven by covering each shooting that happens in a public venue as if it were World War III. The message continues to resonate: Nut Case Shoots Eleven in Pro-gun LA, …. … … Bought the Gun In Alabama, GOP Pres Candidates Pressed on Guns, O’Malley Wants Gun Confiscation, Blah, Blah, Blah…
America, people, is an armed camp. We usually fight our wars someplace else. Adversarial countries don’t want to come here to fight us so now they send suicidal volunteers or encourage home-grown or newly misplaced radical immigrant visionaries to reign havoc on military and law enforcement institutions. We revere the office our politicians hold but not always the holders. We promote our freedoms as if they were the last pieces of food that would keep us alive. Don’t apologize for our freedoms, for our constitution, for our varieties of faith and ethnic origins. But fight for what you think is right. Cowardice in a movie theater is not freedom. It’s a trainwreck.

SHELBY MURDOC, July 15, 2015 — In news that is sure to shock no one who supports gun rights, a recent report from the Crime Prevention Research Center indicates that the murder rate in the U.S. has fallen while the number of citizens with concealed carry permits has skyrocketed. And all this during the presidency of Barack Obama.
In 2007, there were 5.6 murders per 100,000 people. The most recent number has gone down to 4.2 murders per 100,000 people, a decline of 25 percent. That is significant, too big to be a statistical aberration.
Interestingly, and a fact that lets a lot of air out of the balloon for gun controllers, the number of concealed carry permits in the country has grown from 4.6 million to 12.8 million over the same period. That is an increase of 178 percent, a huge rate of growth. [full story]
BOB ROGERS, July 15, 2015 — I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I avoid such groups. Don’t even interview them. They have a right to their own conspiracies. They don’t need any from me, if I had them anyway.
I don’t see the earth burning. Yet. Global warming was a hoax. I think. The Second Coming is a bit off-schedule according to those who predicted it years ago. They’re now dead. China may overtake the world’s trade economy but first they have to prove they can make better air bags than Japan’s Takata.
Jade Helm may turn out to be nothing more than a ship’s green wheel, but memories of Waco and Ruby Ridge and the Montana Freemen remain etched in the minds of pseudo-patriots. Just not me. Or Cliven Bundy. [full story]
STEVE COMUS, July 1, 2015 — Lore has it that when a princess (France) learned that the peasants had no bread, she replied: “Let them eat cake.” Whether such is actually true is academic. The point is that such a reply reflects an indifference to the lack of understanding and of reality.
Currently some of the highest-ranking officials (Obama and his cronies) crying out for more gun control are the same demagogues who have squads of armed guards protecting them 24/7/365. Yes, I suppose the concept of self-defense has a different meaning when you have armed professionals literally at your fingertips.
Merely translating such situations verbatim, however, is at least misleading. There is a whole lot more involved than whether a person can afford to have armed bodyguards. [full story]
