Mass Shootings and Random Acts of Violence

I’ve long been a strong advocate of an armed populace as the best means of self-defense. I also believe it is by far the best deterrent and way to stop both mass shootings and terrorist attacks involving firearms.
 
Back when I first became interested in the topic of mass shootings, however, there weren’t as many, and at least here in America. It was largely relegated to the occasional insane person run amok. Aside from 9/11, we did not yet have to worry Muslims conducting their own mass shootings in the name of terrorism.
 
Now we do, and it looks to get a whole lot worse before it ever gets better.
 
Society has several tools available to deter terrorism and mass shootings:
 
– Intelligence (costly, even when highly focused)
– – requirements
– – planning and direction
– – collection
– – processing and exploitation
– – analysis and production
– – dissemination
– Security (the physical deterrence and protection of people 
– – Law enforcement (federal, state, county, and local)
– – Personal protection (planning, training, and weapons)
 
So, should we make it more difficult for people to obtain guns?  Should we reduce magazine capacities?  Increase background checks?  Reduce calibers?  Limit ammunition capability?  Create more “gun-free” zones?  Mandate the use of “smart” guns?  Increase waiting periods?  Ban certain types of firearms based on their appearance or general level of public trepidation?  Put a cop on every street corner?
anti-gun desperation
No.  NONE of these measures has proven effective in either deterring or stopping mass shootings or random acts of violence, and most of them significantly increase the cost of obtaining a firearm to the average law-abiding citizen who seeks protection.
By far the most immediate and most effective deterrent against both mass shootings and random acts of violence, whether the result of insanity or terrorism, is a well-armed general populace comprised of law-abiding U.S. citizens who are both properly armed and well-trained.
 
The greatest threat to our security comes not from the lunatics and terrorists, but rather, from those second-guessers, the Monday-morning armchair quarterbacks who are NOT well-trained (if at all) yet who for whatever blitheringly idiotic reason feel like they’re *somehow* qualified to force their opinions down the throats of an otherwise free and well-trained general populace, usually in the form of ideas that sound good but either do nothing or actually do more harm than the harm they’re supposed to address.
mass shootingsThroughout history, a well-armed/trained populace has always been the most effective deterrent and counter to mass shootings and random acts of violence.

Where is Our Enemy?

Contrary to popular misconception, I do NOT hate all Muslims. In fact, I don’t hate ANY Muslims.
 
I DO, however, “hate that which is evil and cling to that which is good.” – Romans 12:9
 
This begs the question, “What is evil?”
 
As Justin Tolomeo, acting special agent in charge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Phoenix, said in a statement: “People who are plotting to death to Americaharm America and Americans are no longer a world away.” According to a variety of sources ranging from several within our federal government to various security think tanks, somewhere between 3% and 30% of Muslims currently in the United States would take innocent American lives given the right opportunity. Tens of thousands of Muslims were certainly observed cheering in the streets when Muslims attacked all Americans on September 11, 2001.
 
I’d call that evil, and encourage you to remember that such evil is already here in America, among us.
 
So what are we to do? Kill them all? If we did that, America would probably not survive the ensuing global backlash.
 
I would love to be able to differentiate between the good ones and the bad ones, but that’s just not possible. The problem involves taqiyya, the Islamic practice of deceiving your enemy. They’re apparently very good at it, having fooled the American government many times, including at the security checkpoints leading to those four fateful flights on September 11, 2001, eluding security at the Boston Marathon, attacking our recruiting centers, our hospitals, and many more.
 
When your enemy is inside your borders, and there’s no way to discern the difference between your enemy and a peaceful Muslim neighbor until it’s too late, what is an honest, law-abiding American citizen to do?
 
Remember, we didn’t start this war. Islam waged war against the rest of the world for 400 years before the Western world throughout Europe grew Jihad is their dutytired of the bloodshed and mounted a counter-offensive we know as the Crusades, kicking their butts back to the Middle East. It has only been in the last century, with a boldness and wealth resulting from oil, that they have resumed their global conquest.
 
So, again, what’s an honest, law-abiding American citizen to do?
 
Buy a firearm. Make sure it’s good, simple, and reliable. Get the best training possible. Know how to use it, when to use it, where to use it, and just as importantly, when not to use it. Train often, carry it with you whenever possible, and be ready at a moment’s notice.
 
Just remember this: Islam knows no bounds, and Muslims can be unbelievable cowards. They have often strapped bombs to their children, much like this smiling young girl, to do their dirty work for them.

So good luck, God bless, and Carry On.

Sharia Law v. Constitutional Law – Who is Above the Law?

 

The recent poll says 51% of American Muslims think that Sharia law has precedent over the Constitution and that they should be able to establish Sharia courts throughout America.
 
The question asks whether Americans feel these Muslims should be deported from America.
 
97% of respondents say YES.
 
3% of respondents say NO.
 
Admittedly, the poll is posted on a website — Supreme Patriot — that is unlikely to see much bleeding heart libtard traffic. Even so, this isn’t an opinion piece. It’s a legal piece.
 
When our Founding Fathers penned, “Congress shall make no law respecting (giving preferential treatment to) an establishment of religion,” they MEANT it, and for damned good reason, including the one unfolding before us.
 
As for me, I don’t care what they think. I most certainly do care, however, what they do — their behavior.
 
1. If they’re an illegal immigrant, they’ve already broken the law. Deport them without question or hesitation and bar reentry. We already have laws on the books to effect this course of action. Follow the law.
 
2. If they’re here legally, but behave in a manner that violates the law, particularly the Constitutional rights of U.S. citizens, then they deserve the same punishment as anyone who infringes on another’s rights and freedoms, commensurate with the laws currently on the books concerning nuisance, harassment, misdemeanor, and felony behavior.
 
2a. If their legal status is on a visa, then either prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law, or deport them as required by the law.
 
2b. If their legal status is a U.S. citizen, then prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
 
The key word throughout is “law.” No one is above the law. Not Obama. Not Holder. Not Lynch. Not Kerry. Not an U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Not Muslims. Not Americans. Not legal immigrants. And certainly not illegal immigrants.
 
And by “law,” I am NOT referring to “sharia law.” I am referring to “the supreme Law of the Land.” Article VI, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution.
 
If Muslims can’t respect the Constitution of the United States of America, then they are in the WRONG country. They should get the HELL out of HERE.
 
Fair warning.

The Crusades and Islam – The Original War On Terrorism

After attempting to live peaceably alongside Muslims for a full 500 years, the people throughout Europe embarked on the Crusades crusadesto kick them out. The Crusades arose not because of Islam itself, but because of the grossly unacceptable behavior of its followers. Their behavior increasingly violated life, limb, and property, not to mention the basic human rights of the indigenous peoples of Europe and other lands.  Everyone should be free to practice their religion, but never beyond the point where such practice violates the rights of others.
The Crusades really were campaigns against terrorism.
The problem with the Qu’ran, Hadith, and other sources of the Islam faith is that it has ZERO respect for the rights of others. crusadesIslam strongly encourages the taxation (jizya), rape, torture, dismemberment and death of non-believers, especially when such murders are carried out by beheading the victims while they’re alive and very much aware of what’s happening.
Thus, in a roundabout way, the Crusades weren’t directly opposed to Islam itself, but to the gross and unacceptable horrors caused crusadesby those who practice Islam.  Muslims started taxing, raping, torturing, dismembering, and murdering non-believers and they just would not stop.  The problem with Islam is that deep down it really is that horrific.
The Crusades were extremely well-justified.
As C.S. Lewis once said, “It seems to me, therefore, than when the worst comes to the worst, if you cannot restrain a man by any method except by trying to kill him, then a Christian must do that” (C.S. Lewis, The Grand Miracle, Chapter 3, “Answers to Questions on Christianity, pp. 23-24).
Dozens of countries who remember the lessons of history have branded Islam for what it is: A culturally-based mental illness. It’s a systematic yet destructive way of thinking which brings death and destruction not only to those who oppose it, but between different factions of Islam, as well.
Wherever Islam is allowed to exist unchecked, humanity is NOT SAFE.
