Its Not About Justice in the Oxford School Shooting: The war against parents, and guns, continues with gross overreach

It’s About Destroying the Family, and Taking Their Guns

I really feel bad for the shooter’s parents in the Oxford school killings in Michigan.  The prosecutor in the case set the stage for what really is a rush to judgment and gross violation of innocent until proven guilty assumption when Karen McDonald essentially stated that she was a mom, and that was supposed to be the reason she destroyed the lives of a married couple already suffering through the loss of their son.  Yes, their son was the shooter who killed four other students in the hallways of their school and wounded seven others. There’s no question it was a tragedy, and upon hearing of the case, the first thing that jumps out is that much of the damage could have been averted if teachers had been armed to stop the 15-year-old kid.  There is plenty of blame to go around for the tragedy, but what the public school and the prosecutor are looking for is easy blame for really the process failures that most government schools are suffering from.  The question of why the kid felt he had no other option but to kill other students is what needs to be dealt with.  But Karen McDonald expects to glaze over all that and instead seek to throw red meat at the situation by prosecuting the parents for buying the shooter the gun he used for the crime, which makes this case something else entirely.  This case is no longer about bringing justice to the shooter, but who essentially is the parent of a child and sending out the message to gun owners that they could be prosecuted just for buying a gun.  There are apparent politics at play which has much more far-reaching ambitions that make this a unique imposition for all of us.

When we hear of these school shooting cases, the kids are usually from broken homes and often have lifestyles that embody heavy marijuana use.  In this case, however, we don’t know about the drug use, but it’s about a father and mother married trying to help their son.  We don’t know the circumstances for which they bought him the SIG as a Christmas present on Black Friday of 2021, but it likely had some motive of empowerment.  Based on the social media postings by the kid and the parents in general, they obviously were trying to overcome some family issues.  Was the kid bullied and the parents trying to help the child feel empowered?  Based on my experience, I would say that will turn out to be the case.  Buying kids guns and teaching them how to use them is an American tradition.  And public schools have made it clear they seek to eliminate that ritual.  Public schools are anti-family, anti-gun, and all about centralizing the management of children.  The school was too quick to blame the parents for not making their recommendations. I could list hundreds of cases right now where schools put themselves in a tug of war with the parents over power with children, so I can see why the parents might not be inclined to listen to what the school was telling them, including not believing that the drawing depicting a mass school shooting was even authentic.  Based on the parents’ reaction in their comments before and after the shooting, it is evident that they viewed the school as intruding on their rights as parents.  Of course, anger often distorts reality, and in this case, it likely prevented them from seeing just how damaged their kid was in the matter leading up to the shooting.

Imagine what it would be like for them to find out they have lost their child forever now that he shot up a school.  It was likely very traumatic, and now the media is outside covering everything you are doing. Of course, they would want to console each other and seek refuge somewhere where they could think the situation through.  Now, not only have they lost a child, but they are now the targets for a manhunt which the media fanned the flames into a national story.  They were hunted down, arrested, and separated when they needed to help each other.  They were paraded around in front of the cameras as criminals, guilty, and must prove themselves innocent from behind a jail cell.  What was the message to the world? If you buy a gun for someone, you could be prosecuted, and the state will destroy every aspect of your life, starting with your family.  It’s for the greater good in this new Soviet-style media culture, which is directly connected to our state and federal government. That’s not to say that the people who lost their kids in the shooting aren’t terribly sad as well, and they surely want justice.  But the government, in this case, was quick to partner with the public school to make a strong case for something much deeper, who controls the child.  Is it the parents or the school?  We already know how the left views the matter; it’s been a national story this year.  And in this case, the prosecutor, because she’s some kind of panicky mom, assumes that all the Bill of Rights for the parents can be suspended and that the state has ultimate power over the American family. 

By the time this case is heard in court, I’m sure we’re going to learn that the pressures of the school on the kid were one of the most significant contributing factors to the violence.  And tug of war between the school and the parents over who controls a growing child’s life will prove to be the smoke of the actual fire.  The state and its government schools view their role as co-parents of all children. They’d like more authority than that, but when they call the parents at home over every little panic, they expect the parents to listen to their “expert” class opinion.  If the parents reject those opinions, as they often do, of course, the state finds this alarming.  In this case, the parents truly missed the mark, and the school and prosecutor have an easy time crying foul.  The parents should have never let their child have access to that newly bought gun.  Part of purchasing a gun and giving it to a child is to have a managed teaching moment with them that they grow in to.  You can’t just give them a gun to make them feel empowered without major instruction.  The gun should have been locked up in the home and only taken out to take the kid shooting, to learn how to use the weapon.  So the parents clearly made a mistake in the management of buying a gun and owning it.  But again, I could rattle off dozens of cases that I know of right now where schools mess up the lives in detrimental ways of their students all the time, and they don’t get prosecuted like this, treated this way by the media.  It often gets covered up when they get caught, especially when a teacher molests students in perverted and destructive ways.  Some students threaten to kill other students that schools miss all the time, and usually, it doesn’t happen.  But because this time it happened to the parents and the school had put out the alarm ahead of time, the prosecutor, the state, and the government ran media, in general, wanted to throw the book at the parents when in fact, it was likely the school that caused the original problem.  And in that way, this is an attack on all of us.  The state has all the power and authority, and if they say we are guilty, we can have our whole lives overturned instantly.  We can be thrown in jail, separated from our loved ones, and isolated from logic.  Then, and only then, can we start the path to prove our innocence, which for these parents may take the rest of their lives.  The state and the school have ruined their lives because they bought a gun for their child.  The actions against the parents’ behavior aren’t about justice; it’s about attacking America’s gun culture and implementing their progressive plan that states that the school is the real owner of the children, and if we get in the way, we will have our own lives destroyed.

The Nature of Corruption: Uncovering history at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West

The Nature of Corruption

I can’t say it enough, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, turned out to be a treasure trove of philosophy that was just what America needed at just the right moment, at least for me, so that I could explain it to other people.  It was interesting; my family was mad at me for the breakneck pace of a big trip we were all on together.  We had just spent the day before seeing all the big sites in Yellowstone.  Every day, we had been getting up early and doing more in a day than most people do in a week of vacation.  Not only were my two daughters with me and their spouses but all my grandchildren as well.  I was on a mission; I was uncovering rocks putting together the essence of what was happening to our country.  The election year of 2020 had presented us all with lots of unusual problems, and I was looking for answers in 2021.  In June of that year, my family was deep in the rugged buttes of Wyoming several miles from the East entrance to the park outside Cody, Wyoming, which convinced me they needed a break from all the adventuring.  So, we agreed on a compromise; we’d take a day off our adventure and go to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in town and take it easy to let everyone catch their breath.  It was their idea, actually, but I didn’t tell them that the Buffalo Bill Center of the West was one of the places I had on my list that was always at the top, and I wanted to go there badly.  So quite unexpectedly, I found myself there with my entire immediate family, and it turned out to be one of the great highlights of my life.  I didn’t know it at the time, but it was one of those wonderful days with my family that intersected with questions I had been asking all my life, and suddenly there were answers. 

My concern was in asking the nature of corruption; we had just seen the removal of President Trump by a rigged election and hostile Democrats hell-bent on socialism and communism.  They had seen how well Bernie Sanders, the socialist, polled among young people during the presidential election the year prior, so now they were pulling off the masks and showing themselves to be the socialist they always were.  They were behaving the way I always said were their true intentions, and for many Americans, they were shocked by it.  At that time, I was also working on my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, which I had finished on the road that year and was in the editing process.  At the center of that book was an understanding of the nature of corruption.  My point was that some of the best years of American life that was least corrupt were the one where the modern socialists were declaring to be one of the most, the Victorian age, the end of the Gilded era, and the start of the Progressive.  For me, it was the other way around, so I was very interested in why the Buffalo Bill Wild West show was so popular among Americans for the closing decades of the 1800s and how Trump was an interesting call-back to that Make America Great Again sentiment that also was there with the Buffalo Bill Wild West show.

I have an interesting relationship with Buffalo Bill, each year in Ohio; I participate in the Annie Oakley Festival in Darke County during the last weekend of July. I have done that for most of my adult life.  It’s always been a throwback to the Buffalo Bill show which Annie Oakley was the trick shooting act.  When I was a kid, the Clint Eastwood film Bronco Billy touched me deeply, and I wanted to be a part of that life, so the Annie Oakley Festival in Greenville, Ohio, gave me that chance, which I have always seen as the essence of American life.  I used those experiences to paint my book’s unique point of view to what America was, especially from business life.  So a lot was culminating there at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West that the average visitor wouldn’t have experienced.  But the museum didn’t disappoint.  It was top class, one of the best of its kind in the world, and I brought back from there a real treasure of books and art that I would spend the rest of the year studying, which is the usual way I do things.  I visit places; then I learn all I can about those places long after I’ve gone.  In that way, my visits last a long time, but I get to know a place months and years after the initial visit.  And it was in this exploration that I ran across the Edward Bellamy book Looking Backward and discovered precisely what I had been looking for, the link to many of our modern problems.  That book had been trendy during the time of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, and it held the answer to the long question of why that show had been so popular with people, even in this modern day.  It even explained why Trump was such a good president and why so many people on the socialist left wanted to see him utterly destroyed. 

Bellemy’s biggest mistake in his book Looking Backward was that he assumed that an administrative state of the central government could regulate corruption out of existence.  This idea of a socialist utopia was very attractive to some people, and they became progressives that would shape the Democrat party we see today early in the 1900s. Ironically, many Americans, without realizing it, understood that the life of Buffalo Bill and his show had touched on the essence of America, and they wanted to see more of it before it vanished as progressives had been promising.  There was honor and invention in the Wild West that Buffalo Bill showed in his displays.  America was remarkably uncorrupted for a few years of western expansion until corruption took over on the heels of Progressives and the work of Karl Marx sought to sabotage it right out of the gate, which is a battle that is still being waged to this day.  As it turned out, and it’s evident at the Buffalo Bill gun museum on the Center of the West campus, gun ownership in America had punched a window into the long history of corruption in the world. Buffalo Bill represented the best to have come from that philosophic period.  This bit of history was so remarkable that Plato and Aristotle would have never conceived of such a thing. Still, there it was in the American west, the defeat of corruption before the world’s governments could taint it with their looting presence.  And the left never figured it out. It’s an easy answer “Looking Backward” at how childlike Bellamy was in his assumptions within his book.  The socialist utopia that Karl Marx wanted and the Bellamyites who followed him for years after that book instead made corruption worse through the administrative state.  We were all a lot better off when the world was, as Buffalo Bill showed it.  And people understood that when they went to see his show. 

The nature of corruption comes from any organization of people who are put in power over other people. The other people have no means to check the power inflicted upon them.  The magic of America that no other society in the world had figured out is that with Americans having gun ownership, they could control the influence of corruption as it grows within any centralized authority. That centralized authority might be our corporations or our local, state, and federal governments.  Corruption was always going to happen, but the ownership of guns kept it checked in healthy ways that worked best before the works of Karl Marx infected American academic circles with a completely foreign concept from Europe that fed corruption rather than controlling it.  And that was something new for me to think about.  I think it’s normal to have thoughts about something where you know it’s right or wrong, but we often don’t understand why.  Well, at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, they had recorded “why,” and it was just the right thing I had been looking for.  It’s not enough to say that something doesn’t work for emotional reasons.  But in the context of history, we have preserved facts that we can study and apply to our modern-day.  And within that study, we have our answer on the nature of corruption and what we can do to control it.  It’s in the minds of all societies to have corruption.  For the liberal, they think they can educate it out of people.  But in the process, they make much more of it.  Yet, in the proven history of western expansion, we did control corruption for a healthy period, and the world was much better for it.  History proves it so.

Guns Don’t Kill People, Alec Baldwin Does: Make no mistake about it, we hate these anti-American activists

Alec Baldwin is Guilty of Killing

I support entirely Donald Trump Jr’s statement about Alec Baldwin on the new shirt sold on his website, stating, “guns don’t kill people, Alec Baldwin does.” I tend to like Christian people; I grew up with lots of families with a religious background.  But I’m a vengeful person, and I think it’s consistent with the laws of nature.  I don’t forgive and forget.  I think it’s stupid to turn the other cheek, and when you get a chance at revenge for things that people have done to you, you take every opportunity to enjoy it.  They deserve what they have coming, those who inflict evil on you.  They deserve to feel all the pain and misery of the ramifications of their deeds.  That certainly is the way I think about those who pushed President Trump out of office, have signed America up for all these terrible United Nations climate change policies, and all those anti-gun liberals like Baldwin. They have done so much evil over the years toward my position.  If Donald Trump Jr. hadn’t made up a shirt like that, I would have.  Now my wife is one of those forgiving types, and her reaction is likely similar to many people out there.  She stated that everyone is worthy of forgiveness.  Well, no, they aren’t.  When people are as bad as Alec Baldwin is, they deserve all the misery of whatever pain they feel, and they are not worthy of forgiveness in any way.  I feel sorry for the cinematographer who was killed on the movie set of the western, Rust, who was killed by a gun Alec Baldwin was using as what they thought was a “prop gun.” That killing should never have happened.  But I don’t buy that Alec Baldwin feels terrible about it the way he is showing. He’s a phony, an actor.  He is a liberal loser and an anti-gunner, and ultimately, he is responsible for the death that occurred on that movie set and nobody else.  He killed an innocent person with a gun, and he can live with that forever in misery, and I hope it rots his soul from the inside out.

The first problem with Alec Baldwin is that he has sold himself to Hollywood and the political world as an anti-gun activist.  Yet he was the producer of the film Rust, a western where guns are always the subject of a story.  Baldwin has made a good living in his life, such as in his gangster films, using guns to tell his stories and make his money; they turn around and talk about how evil they are. He’s a two-faced tyrant at best and a hothead who has personally attacked many conservatives over the years as an outright bully.  I love westerns, but I would not have watched Rust because Alec Baldwin was in it.  What he did on Saturday Night Live to the Trump family and to the president I elected and loved was war.  He insulted all the MAGA movement notoriously and without guilt or thought to any damage it might cause.  Before his Saturday Night Live skits against Donald Trump, I might have just thought Baldwin was a hothead actor.  I might watch a movie with him in it and shake my head at how stupid he was.  But I learned to hate him over the Trump years as he proved himself to be an enemy of America, a progressive buffoon who made money off guns then turned around and sought ways to destroy America by attacking an America First president.  Again, I’ve heard it all before; we aren’t supposed to carry hate in our hearts.  As good “Christian” people, we are not supposed to feed hate or give it a harbor within our minds.  Well, I think that’s a stupid idea, and I have felt that way since my many years of Sunday school until I was beyond the 8th grade.  Not having hate in a heart is like operating in a world without eyes.  Hate is the result of how you feel about what people do to you, and it’s a natural emotion generated from the way people live life.  And the way Alec Baldwin has lived his life and sought to change the way I live mine, I hate him.  I would say I hate every cell in his body and the air he breathes. 

I’ve worked on movie sets, I’ve spent my life around guns.  I work with guns every day of my life, and I would have known that there was a bullet in that gun as soon as someone handed it to me.  I would have been able to tell by the weight of a single live round. I’ve worked with blanks, many kinds of bullets, and guns that fire lasers for sight alignment.  As the person holding the gun, it was Alec Baldwin’s responsibility to know if the weapon he was pointing downrange was loaded or not.  It’s not the armorer or the assistant director.  They can tell you if the gun is hot or cold.  You still must check it yourself before doing anything with it.  These are gun skills that every young person in America should know before they leave grade school.  Millions of families handle lots of guns every year and don’t have accidents as Alec Baldwin did.  Baldwin, as a liberal, trusted as all liberals do the system of responsibility that kills all liberals in every argument.  They are never at fault for anything because it’s always a system’s failure if something goes wrong.  This is precisely what the media attempted to do with this shooting on the set of Rust.  They try to say that the gun was used in target practice earlier that day, and a round was left in it.  The system failed, not the shooter.  They try to say that the prop master was inexperienced, that there were union disputes on the set.  They said many things, but ultimately, everyone who handles a gun under any circumstances knows; the person holding the gun is always responsible.  Guns don’t kill people; they don’t go off on their own.  People kill people. Don Jr. is not wrong in what his t-shirt says. 

Alec Baldwin should never be let off the hook for all those reasons and many, many more.  This shooting should ruin his life in every way.  And we should allow ourselves to smile at the justice of it.  It’s terrible that someone had to die because Alec Baldwin was so stupid.  But it was his fault and only his fault.  Being a nasty liberal and anti-gun activist, he had no business even making a western with guns in it.  The only people who operate guns on a film set should know guns in everyday life and have the skills to work with them.  Putting guns in the hands of many Hollywood liberals who are ignorant about the little things regarding gun safety is an open invitation for stuff like this to go wrong.  But liberals like to talk out of both sides of their mouth; they want to make money with guns, then speak against them like the activist that Alec Baldwin always has been.  And Alec Baldwin should suffer, as should everyone who works against an American First agenda.  These people are not our life partners; they are not our friends.  They are domestic enemies, and they need to be punished when they do something wrong.  And when someone dies because of what they do, forgiveness is not an option.  Hatred is the right emotion, and to never forgive it is the correct thing to do. Some people are just bad in life, and Alec Baldwin is a bad person.

Shooting From the Hip: The cost of socialism in any society

Don’t Learn to Stay in Your Lane

While I was working on the themes for my book The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, one of my most important stops was the British Museum and sitting in the places where Karl Marx had written his books that literally changed the world.  While in London for this investigation, I took my family to the best restaurants and spent some time investigating the areas around parliament to understand the radical swings of their class structure and how anybody could even think that what Marx put down in his books was good.  After sitting in Marx’s same seats in the museum, I confirmed what I already knew; Marx was lazy and worked his ass off to prove it.  Yes, that is a paradox of terms, but that was what the guy was suffering from.  While his family sat at home, broke and hungry, Marx and Engles at the British museum tried to show the world why the capitalists were evil.  And many in British society who enjoyed the nice things in life felt guilty because they either acquired a lot of power from socializing or other methods, and it rotted their minds with unearned doubt.  So they formed political parties like the Labor Party in England and the Democrat Party in America.  Other places around the world, too, adopted Marx not because they thought it would make a better world but because it gave more centralized power to governments. Hence, the idiocy of Karl Marx spread like wildfire in a dry forest, and rage of destruction swept over the world.  But to my thinking, fires are good, and it benefits people to see things for themselves. That’s why what I wrote in my book was necessary.  Without the stupidity of Karl Marx to highlight the benefits of capitalism with a defense of it in my Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, people may never have seen the differences between the two. 

Learning to Get Better

That’s what has happened with Marxism mixed in with capitalism; people didn’t notice the little things slowing us all down and constraining productivity.  Marxism has embedded itself in almost everything we do, but people did not see it as it was happening because as long as they could buy their cars, get milk at the grocery, and send their kids to school, they didn’t pay much attention.  But I did notice that it has been a source of constant frustration for me during my entire professional life, which started when I was still a teenager.  One thing about me that has always been criticized was that I “shot from the hip” too much.  People would say that I didn’t take careful aim in my life and take my time when shooting at targets.  That, of course, was a metaphor for my thought processes in how I manage things.  To others, I have always been the reckless cowboy who was too impulsive to be trusted.  Yet mysteriously, everything I have always touched succeeded.  I understood it on a conceptual level, but years later, when I would finally write a book about it, I had to understand it.  Like Marx, many people in the world are too lazy to become truly good at anything.  They grow up, they grow lazy, and they are content to be average.  So they bring this attitude to their businesses, and for their lazy minds, Marx was a kindred spirit.  While they wanted to make money in life, they didn’t want to work too hard to get it, so they adopted little bits of socialism along the way to make it so that they wouldn’t have to work too hard.  This point became very obvious to me once I started the sport of professional gunfighting for competitions.  I watched for years how real gunfighters could draw and shoot a gun by drawing from the hip in under a second.  It seemed impossible to me, but I wanted to learn to do it, so I began the learning process, and once I figured it out, all these other elements became very obvious.  Obvious enough to write a book about what I learned.

Shooting from the Hip is Good

One of the premises of communism is equality, which we hear about all the time now that Biden has been inserted in the White House to preserve these gains Marxists have made around the world.  But for equality to indeed happen, we must cripple those who are the best and fastest in life at certain things.  I often compare this metaphor to a hay bail truck full of farm animals traveling down the road at 45 miles per hour.  Up behind them, storming down the highway at 120 miles per hour, is a fancy sports car that can take curves on a dime and run all day long at 200 mph.  Socialist society says that the fancy car has to stay behind the truck because that is the constraint, that is the average, and to be fair, everyone needs to build their life off the average.  The speedy car is supposed to slow down to 45 mph and not pass.  Socialist society creates rules like double yellow lines to keep everyone staying in their lane so that socialism and communism can occur.  However, in America, the rules have always been in reverse.  The fast car was encouraged to pass or have a speed lane to travel in to go as fast as possible.  Speed limits aren’t made for the best and most competent; they are made for the average, the slow, and the lazy-minded.  Those who can’t or won’t think too fast to avoid an accident.  Therefore, the speedy car is penalized and encouraged to be less than it is in a democracy where the majority of the people decide what the average behavior should be.  This is how our businesses have been crippled and how the government has enforced converting America from capitalism to socialism over time.  Through rules and regulations intended to force people to stay in their lanes, not shoot from the hip, and ignite Karl Marx while suppressing Adam Smith.

I’ve always been that guy who shot from the hip, and I’m very proud of it.  Even now that I’m later in my life than when many of these things have been said about me, learning to shoot in Cowboy Fast Draw activities has shown me the essence of becoming better each day.  What seems impossible today may be quite possible tomorrow if only you put a little work into it.  That is what America did best in the past and still is better than anyplace else in the world mired in socialism and communism.  This is also how many of our corporations had become so woke, just as the politicians of England did when scrappy old Karl Marx worked himself to death trying to create a philosophy of government that justified his laziness.  I didn’t feel I could say that based on just my opinions of reading his books.  But I could say it after I sat in his seats and saw the world from all of their perspectives.  Marxism and its birthplace there in London intended to be in the world that hey bail truck going 45 miles per hour.  They created rules in life to protect the feelings of the slow and lazy from the speedy and competent.  And when they called me names like “cowboy” and a person who “shoots from the hip” too much, they might as well have been calling me the most derogatory names humans could call each other, hoping to peer pressure me into accepting average behavior.  But I never will.  Instead, I’ll explain the differences to people with a mind to hear it, and I’m not about to ever accept getting stuck behind slow traffic on the highway.  The goal of all of us should always be to get faster, wiser, and better.  Not to accept the lazy and dim-witted who want to rule the world but are too lazy to do it.

My Thoughts on Afghanistan: Facing down evil once more

Its Time to Face Down Evil

I love Jags in West Chester, Ohio, and some of my friends who love to chew on cigar smoke while contemplating the complexities of life.  I found myself at the bar enjoying the atmosphere after one of those nights dressed the way I always am in my videos, like the one shown above, enjoying a Guinness.  A receptionist had come for me to take me to my table, so we walked through the posh interior headed for that destiny when an older, very affluent couple stopped me to compliment me on my hat.  At first, I thought they were poking fun at it a bit, but I realized they were quite sincere in their compliments after a few moments.  I don’t talk about it much, but I started dressing this way for one primary reason.  Our country is under attack and has been for a while.  Now is not the time to pretend like everything is fine and dandy.  I wear the outfits I do because it helps other people feel better about what’s going on, that there is still strength and courage out in the world, which is precisely what that couple was referencing without being able to put the words to the moment.  They just knew they liked it. We’ve allowed our culture to slip away from us by playing too friendly with the world.  And in doing business all over the world, I knew something that the rest of us have forgotten because our media culture makes sure we ignore it.

The efforts at toxic masculinity and other progressive pushes were meant to unarm us physically and intellectually.  My approach is to make sure that all those enemies know that, at least with me, that classical American values are at the core of my personality.  I’m happy to project that to anybody who wants to listen, like that couple at Jags.  And they appreciated it for lots of unsaid reasons.  What they could say was that they loved my hat and my leather vest.  Of course, I said thank you.  As another perk, I never have enough pockets for all my things, so the vests serve a practice role, most of which is to conceal my carry, which I never leave home without.  But more than anything, in these times, it did help to project to others that it was alright to let the progressive insurgents know that pushback on their Woke policies was a reality that they would have to deal with.

I’ve been asked hundreds of times over the last few days what I think of the Afghanistan situation and when I explain it, I think of that couple who loved my hat and western attire at Jags.  They didn’t know why they liked my outfit so much; they just knew they did.  Enough to make a big deal about it.  But I understand why they liked it so much; they were older, maybe a little older than me, so they had at some point in their past access to the western, which were the foundations of Hollywood for most of its life.  Westerns were also the first thing that progressives have attacked in our culture, which loves them still.  Only westerns have been satirized relentlessly for the last 30 years because they project what communists call “Toxic Masculinity.” Well, what happened in Afghanistan was that the good guys went there to bring western civilization to the world’s villains, and we helped many Afghan people do just that.  Women were freed for the first time in their aggressive Muslim culture.  America was that needed sheriff that came to town and brought justice to the dens of evil who wanted to continue to function as a backwater crime pit, and we staved it back for 20 years and allowed people to evolve without those fears.  Westerns from American culture have told this story repeatedly, from just about every John Wayne movie to Clint Eastwood’s Fistfull of Dollars.  To The Magnificent Seven, and many more.  The good sheriff coming to town to instill justice and natural law were what most westerns were about. They were specific creations of American ideas and western civilization in general.  And when people see the way I dress, it’s reassuring to them.  Not so much to the youth, although they do respond positively.  They are craving protection and order in their lives.  But we have these needs deep within our culture, and we have over a hundred years of stories about these themes that we’ve created and broadcast around the world.  The bad guys know it and want it undone, which is what Afghanistan was and why it’s such a tragedy.

The mistake purposeful or by sheer accident is irrelevant.  The political left ran by a Marxist ideology, even in radical Islam, expects the bold sheriff’s merits to be replaced by consensus building through the “international community.” The Biden administration has made mention of that strategy over and over as Afghanistan fell apart.  It was a plan built into the political left through echo chambers within academia, and they have made it their hill to die on.  That all countries are equal.  America should not be that white-hatted sheriff for the rest of the world. Instead, all nations would be managed through peer pressure of being out of alignment within the international community.  In other words, the cool kids would not let Afghanistan play in the reindeer games if they fell out of line.  Well, that’s their ideology, and it sounds good in the backyards of Georgetown while grilling hot dogs and sipping on red wine, but it doesn’t work in real life.  All it has done is give the biggest aggressor a chance to pick on all the peace lovers trying to kill the world with kindness.  China has been stoking these fires in the background for their ambitions of world domination, and their next target is Taiwan.  It’s easy for Americans to see all this, at least subconsciously, because of our long history of westerns in cinema.  We were raised to see good and evil in these ways even though our academic educations have put the blinders on us to make us blind to the intentions.  But deep down inside, we know what’s going on.  The minute the good Sherrif leaves the town, the villains come out and pillage the innocent. That reality was put into sharp focus as we watched Afghans pile onto C-17s in a desperate attempt to flee Afghanistan and the Christian-hating Taliban before they were all butchered, raped, and killed by the latest villains on earth. 

Without China, there would be no Taliban; they are the unsaid provocateurs here who planned to use this defeat to shame Americans into staying out of their business when it came to Taiwan and Japan.  And while America was killing itself worrying about whether or not we were using the proper pronouns when referencing ourselves, or in feeling guilt over racism, for which America is the most diverse nation in the world, China could make their move to run the world with communism.  So as sad as Afghanistan is, even that is part of the Chinese plan, to shame America so severely with a 20-year war that sent us packing with nothing to show for it and let Afghanistan destroy itself through its civil war without American involvement.  Then China could quickly kill off the winner to take over and have the mineral rights to the north and stimulate the opium production from the region to further poison the world into compliance with everything communists desire.  That is why I love moments like what I mentioned at Jags in my town of West Chester, Ohio.  It reminds me of times past when good sheriffs had to run the bad guys out of a city like Deadwood, Dodge City, or Tombstone.  We are there again, and over a beer, cigar smoke, and the banter of bold camaraderie, we are prepping ourselves for another fight in the streets.  Afghanistan isn’t the end of the fight, but the cue to strap on the guns and face down the evil villains.  And most people, even if they aren’t gunfighters themselves, know and understand the need because at least recognizing that need runs deep in American culture.  But now, instead of watching it on TV, we will have to do it in real life.  And that is the hope that the world is desperate for.  Afghanistan is just the latest proof to what degree only America can save that world from itself.

Gun Violence is Caused by Liberal Failures: Done on purpose for the goal of government control over people

Are you seeing the pattern, this past week another very non NRA type of person conducted a mass shooting, this time it was Aminadab Gzxiola Gonzalez, which turned out to be a case of workplace violence in Southern California, specifically Orange County.  Four people were killed, and one was injured as the gunman went on a shooting rampage at the office complex of a realtor and as the media was quick to point out, it was the 3rd mass shooting in just two weeks.  Oh, but they forgot one, which is the one from Virginia Beach that I addressed in the video above.  There was really four, even more than the media wanted to admit.  Actually, I’m surprised that this one with Gonzalez they wanted to count, because of the guy’s name.  Maybe it was because he was older, but he certainly didn’t fit the profile they were looking for.  But if they can exploit it for gun control, then perhaps they no longer care about the details.  After all, the shooting in Virginia Beach didn’t result in more than four people being killed.  Only one died, but there were eight others who were shot in a gang bang type of affair that would have looked familiar in a movie like John Wick or the video game Grand Theft Auto. 

Most of these articles and the members of the media are not NRA members, and they certainly aren’t part of the mainstream culture of America.  They are hired to report the news by corporate media activists so if they want to keep their jobs, they need to advocate for progressive causes, and as we know, progressives want to get rid of guns in society and they will exploit any action that will help them do it.  They don’t really care that the mass shootings are happening, they just want to use them to advance their gun control measures.  However, they have a problem because the killings are not coming from white Trump supporters who are in the NRA.  Instead, and this is the case with all four of these shootings over the last two weeks, they are coming from names of people who don’t have Anglo Saxon types of backgrounds.  Only the one in Atlanta comes close to the kind of person they want to see causing all this violence which they tried to directly attribute to Donald Trump’s blame of coronavirus on Asians, without dealing with the real problem of sex addiction. 

In fact, the four mass shootings that occurred all have in common breakdowns in behavioral circumstances which can be looped back to liberal causes.  In Atlanta, its sex addiction which progressives and their pornographic society have advocated for, and which the big tech companies make abundantly available as a means of controlling the animal instincts in human beings, which makes them more compliant to government mandates.  Then there was the shooting in Boulder Colorado, which came from a known Islamic extremist who specifically targeted white people.  An obvious case of racism by a young immigrant kid from the Middle East and was an anti-Trumper.  Not an NRA type as the media wanted, but they tried to divert the cause of the shooting away and to exploit the emotion of the killings to provoke gun control measures among politicians.  Then of course there was the shootout at Virginia Beach just a week ago from this writing which involved lots of minority types of kids obviously influenced by violent video games and entertainment culture.  They were fighting in the streets and in the clubs like they see on those entertainment venues obviously not thinking of the consequences of their actions as if they thought they were all going to respawn after they were shot or killed.  Then you have this Gonzalez guy killing these poor people in Orange County.  I wouldn’t say we don’t understand the cause of those killings.  Obviously Gonzalez knew all the people he attacked and at this point we could call it some variation of workplace violence, where emotions run wild in a business climate where people are trying to make a living and things get out of hand. 

In all the shootings we are looking at serious breakdowns of the expectations that liberalized society has set, that ends up falling apart in these people who then turn to violence to resolve their conflicts.  I would then offer that it was the liberal plan all along to break down elements of our society for a good ol’ Kotter change state by removing fathers from families, promoting pornography in entertainment, violence in movies without context, and turning to racism every five seconds in our media culture to stir up the emotions of the disenfranchised at every opportunity to enact violence on the culture they seek to conquer, which is traditional American value in this case.  People who belong to the NRA, grow up with good fathers who give them Red Ryder BB guns to learn firearm safety, and would maybe even join the Boy Scouts to become better people are not the people doing these mass shootings.  It is the products of liberalized society who are failing and turning to guns to resolve their quandaries with existence.  They are almost pushed into it by the media culture who of course want to exploit those deaths so to enact the gun control measures which was always the plan. 

Now of course those of us who oppose gun control want a civil society.  We want law and order and respect for our fellow people.  We see guns as a way to maintain a civil society.  In all these mass shootings for instance, we didn’t see a good guy with a gun there to put down the threat.  There was no concealed carry holder around to end the violence before the police arrived.  That is actually the reason the violence happened, and it might be very hard for average people to admit to themselves that is why progressives in the form of Democrats and some Republicans are against fully embracing a society of guns and CCW owners roaming around in public to keep violence from happening, because progressives want the mass shootings to happen so they can use them to advocate for the removal of guns from society, and thus, the easy control of government over the people they manage.  Ultimately, that is why you hardly heard a peep about the shooting in Virginia Beach because it was a gang bang affair, and that kind of thing isn’t relatable to the average person in society.  But the grocery store shooting in Boulder and the workplace violence situation in Orange County California does, so that is why those were exploited as opposed to others. But they all are caused by the liberal policies of politics that have gone wrong or gone right if the point of view is to remove guns from society with emotional stories that the public might support as a result of the tragedy.  But I see something different in these post Trump years.  The Biden administration and the handlers behind him have overplayed their hand.  They’ve especially done it on this gun violence issue trying to exploit every occurrence to full effect.  People are catching on, and they are numb to the emotional plot points, and its not working.

Wanted: Men who can shoot and defend our nation against evil

Observing the situation clearly, and now no longer speculating what foreign intentions have been for our country in pitching the stupid ideas that our media have picked up and ran with, like domesticizing men and devaluing women to become more man like over the years was a clear attack on the defense of our nation.  As we look at the massive amounts of short courage in standing up for ourselves in the face of great evil regarding this election fraud issue alone, and the bullying that has been evident by corrupt and stupid governors regarding Covid-19 one thing is clear, we have needed men to defend our country and great women to raise our families and we’ve had neither leaving America open to foreign attack and scandalous behavior unchecked.  And for me it all starts with gun ownership.  Sadly, many young men and women these days have forgotten the value of a good gun and what it does for the psyche of boys and men everywhere and that at its most primal function has been the means for how China and their puppets in politics and the media have felt so confident in conducting plots of American destruction openly now in the light of day, and its been reprehensible. 

In the video above I provide several examples of why guns and gun ownership are positives specifically for young men.  Part of the plot to feminize men has been to conquer them more easily as China has planned their attack for a long time.  They didn’t want any resistance so with the same audacity that they sought to cheat in our 2020 election, they have been trying to convince men that defending their nation, and their women was a futile and stupid concept.  They also wanted to de-emphasize the need to learn combat and self-defense so that when they were attacked or were throttled in the street by some Antifa thug, that they wouldn’t know how to fight back. And like a bunch of dummies, culturally, certainly not in my household, we listened to their dumb asses.  I grew up knowing many good men who all had guns.  My grandparents had farms, real farms and on Thanksgivings, especially when I was young after dinner, we went out shooting in the field in the stark cold air.  It was for me an initiation into manhood, a way to teach the young the secrets of masculinity and of guarding the valor of a family.  It was a code of honor to learn about different guns and how they shot, how much power had to be controlled while shooting.  Guns just as is featured in the yearly classic Christmas movie, A Christmas Story, are the centerpiece of American civilization, especially in the life of men.  Women aren’t excluded, but typically women in traditional families like to talk about food and feeding the men in their lives, while men went out shooting together to work up an appetite for dessert once they returned inside.  And America was strong and dumb little attackers both foreign and domestic weren’t trying to overthrow the nation, because they would have been shot and killed for attempting it.

Women have their menstrual cycles to announce to them that they are changed from girls into sexually dangerous specimens who could give birth and start families of their own.  Men have almost no rituals to tell them how to manage their bigger, stronger bodies after puberty nor how to deal with their newly loaded guns in their reproductive organs.  Once boys become men with the ability to get a girl pregnant, the need to explain that danger to them is vital to the survival of any successful society.  It used to be that men respected women and they learned those basic skills by learning to shoot and master the techniques it took to handle firearms.  If boys learned how to handle guns and not kill other people in the process, they were more prepared to not stick their penises into every girl who would let them and not start families they weren’t prepared to support with a lifelong commitment.  And we can look around today and see what progressives have done to young men.  Boys today are totally disconnected from consequences because nobody has taught them how to manage danger.  Today sex is without consequence and overly coddled young men are completely devoid of the basic skills it takes to run a family, or to be in a relationship with a woman and the children of their life.  In many ways, it does all start with learning gun ownership in America.

Repeating what I said about men I knew when I was young, they all owned and used guns, not a single one out of many dozens ever shot anybody, or robbed a store, or behaved in bad ways.  All of them held responsible jobs, conducted themselves with care understanding the power they had as men, being stronger, more aggressive by nature than women typically are, the guns in their lives taught them the code of conduct for which to live.  It also taught them when it was necessary to stand up to bad people, whether it was at a trustee meeting, or a school board meeting, or some other local government event.  Gun ownership and the reminder of them hanging on a gun rack in their bedroom, or next to their bed emphasized that if justice was to be administered in life, it had to come from them, not some government losers looking for a payday out of China as we have today.  Guns have always been the centerpiece of an advanced culture because it brought forth in the men of that culture a sense of purpose and ownership that solidified constitutional principles. 

So it is in that context that we should know that political enemies of America have been seeking to destroy that relationship in preparation for their great, planned conquest.  They wanted to convince men that Bruce Jenner could put on a dress and be just another one of the girls while public schools are suspending the young boys in school for make the shape of a gun with their hands and play shooting with other boys on the playground.  That school officers and police are now being called if a teacher sees a child on a video conference who has a Nerf gun hanging on the wall behind them and designating them as a menace to society.  You can have sex and be taught all kinds of perversions in the 3rd grade these days, but if a school or any progressive learns that you bought a child a Red Ryder BB gun, then it is assumed the state has a right to destroy that family with government oversight.  And if there are some men who want to take the young boys out shooting, the are now considered terrorists, if the governors of our states even let us have Thanksgiving or Christmas due to Covid-19.  So, you see dear reader what has happened and how we arrived here.  We let progressives and foreign attackers set our gun policy and define for us what it took to be a man, and they screwed up and turned our society into cowards, and child delinquent monsters more at home in the Clockwork Orange than as heads of families and productive American citizens.  And its been reprehensible to watch, especially in the wake of great constitutional tragedy and a time where more strong people are needed from both sexes to rise to the occasion of our times and to defend us from foreign invasion.  There hasn’t been anybody there to hold the line because instead of grabbing guns to defend ourselves from aggression, the modern men are getting their hair done and picking out panties at Wal-Mart to replace the ones they soiled after the latest news broadcast scaring them to death over the next made-up pandemic by the CDC.

Of Course People Took Guns to the Capital: We’re not playing patty cake with the Constitution

This has been a stunning week, the notion that liberals have which assumes that people with guns should not storm their capitals and demand justice as they did recently in Michigan protesting the governor there, and in Ohio in front of Amy Acton’s house, who has been the health director of Mike DeWine, the out of control governor who really started the lockdown movement in the United States, is completely wrong. When the laws of a republic do not work, then what did anybody think the recourse would be? Compliance? Give me a break, surely people weren’t that stupid. It is an obligation of all Americans to defend the Constitution of the United States and if forces, such as progressives, try to change the law through executive orders, emergency powers, or other back door antics of imperilment, then it is a mandate for people to defend themselves with that last line of defense referred to as the 2nd Amendment. If the 1st Amendment fails, the 2nd is there to protect the rest. Because if the 2nd goes, so does the rest of the Constitution. I was most stunned that Sean Hannity came out against the protestors with guns at the Michigan capital. He obviously is missing a few parts of the story as he has been lock step with President Trump in getting suckered into the whole Covid-19 thing. I can’t blame someone for not knowing something if they don’t have the intellectual means of obtaining the information. But he should understand that Covid-19 was never about a virus, it was a progressive attack against our Constitution and that imposition is a mandate for us to defend it against that attack. And that’s what people bringing guns to the protests were doing, and thankfully they didn’t have to use them.

Like most of what comes out of the progressive movement, they didn’t think everything through. While its true, most Americans were quick to follow orders and listen to the authorities and hide in their homes to avoid spreading a virus, or to wear masks for the benefit of others, there were enough Americans who could see what was happening to provide a proper resistance, and that aggression is far from over. We gave it a few weeks, like any good society should, but once it was realized that the whole Covid-19 outbreak was a political stunt launched from China and the World Health Organization’s most activist members, many Americans were ready to fight, and that is the reason we have guns in this country. Lots of them. And we will continue to have them or there will be a real fight, a bloody one, because that is the reason there is a 2nd Amendment in the first place, for just these kinds of attacks.

Yes, Covid-19 was an attack on the American way of life. Taking guns to a protest was not a political stunt, it was a warning, that violence could come next and that we are ready to take the fight to the enemy—domestic enemies. If there was anything good that came out of the coronavirus pandemic it was that the enemies of the American Constitution came out in the open thinking they had won the day, and that there would be a “new normal” where the American Constitution would be surpassed by some new guidelines written by the United Nations and flowing down through the World Health Organization and into the global society as a whole. At that point Americans would be considered just another member of the global citizen network. There are many progressives who already call themselves that, and they were betting that this coronavirus would be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Until protestors showed up with their guns.

Believe me, that’s the last thing I want to see happen, where we have to pull the trigger on others to defend our Constitution. But, if the American Constitution is no longer the law, then I’ll have to. And I will lead others to the cause, and the other side will not win. I’d rather do thousands of other things, like ride roller coasters at Kings Island, have breakfast at Cracker Barrel, and enjoy a shopping experience at Dillard’s with my wife buying new $200 ties. That’s the American life I signed up for and I agree to live by the rules of the Constitution in peace so long as everyone else does too. But when you see judges like the one in Dallas, Texas who sent a salon owner to jail for opening her business against his orders, then a fight is on the horizon if those progressive forces do not come back into the fold of law that the Constitution affords them. Without that piece of paper written that founded America, there is no reason otherwise to have a peaceful exchange with them as they incur themselves upon our rights, even during some emergency consideration. Progressives do not have a right to tell me what to do any day of the week and if they throw themselves in front of my path, they will be run over. Not my fault, I’m living by the Constitution. If they step away from it, that’s their problem.

And I was glad to see I wasn’t alone. It was good to see that there were enough Americans out there that were not suckers that maybe bloodshed could be avoided. God bless that Texas salon owner Shelley Luther who defied an unjust mandate by a corrupt legal system. Someone from our ranks had to do it and suffer the consequences. What she did took guts, and to be honest, it probably saved lives. GOD BLESS HER! In my own thinking, I’ve been waiting for Trump to catch on and fix this mess. I understand how he got roped into it, but without a president who might turn it around, I have been thinking what strategies needed to happen next and how to implement them. But yielding to progressives in obedience was never in the cards, and it never will be for me. I hope the day never comes, but there were 7 or 8 times over the last couple of months where it came damn close. Luckily, I live in an area with a good sheriff, a strong conservative political party, and a lot of people who think the way I do when pressed.

So it was never a surprise to me that people showed up with guns to draw that line in the sand. The Constitution requires them to defend it that way. What was a surprise was that progressives were so baffled by it. It was as if such a thing was not in their thoughts when they planned this whole damn thing. I think its safe to say that it should be obvious to everyone why they want to get rid of the 2nd Amendment. But its obvious they didn’t understand how deeply connected people relate the 2nd Amendment to their Constitutional rights, which all progressives want to “progress” beyond. It appears they underestimated the resolve of Americans. Not everyone is so educated and resolute, most just want to live their lives as I described. But when you take that life away from them, they will grab their guns and force change on the stupid politicians who caused the mess and disrupted their happiness. And they should. That is part of the wonder of being free. Now that some portion of humankind has experienced that freedom, its not going back into the long history of misery that came out of that bottle which progressivism wants us all to drink from. Gunfire will happen before progressivism takes over America—it has to.

Don’t Shop At Walmart: Anyone against guns is against the idea of America and is an advocate of domestic terrorism

Do you know what the difference is between “us” and “them” the political right and the political left, both of which cannot have a stake in the future of America because the philosophies of living are just too dramatically far apart? “We” talk about doing things and “they” do them. Such is the case with “us” talking about making Antifa a terrorist organization, which it clearly is, then the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passing a resolution declaring the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization.” While the resolution is purely a political stunt, what is at stake is the branding of guns in general and any group or individuals who defend the right to have them—as terrorists. This as Antifa members beat people senseless, harass elderly flag waving veterans, and espouse brown shirt socialism from their corner Starbucks with outward threats of violence and mayhem. Even the now wimpy Walmart is in on the game of banning ammunition and pistols from their inventory refusing to sell them to their customers under pressure from these same forces.

The same mode of attack is at play as Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok suing the FBI for wrongful termination even though they are the ones who committed the crimes, or the school levy supporter who advocates to boycott any business that does not support their mandatory tax increases, or the drug advocate who wants to ignore that all these mass shooters were depressed fatherless young people who by their indicated states had altered their mental acuity into dangerous assassins. The political left doesn’t care if 5 people are killed in a mass shooting or 50. Much higher numbers are shot and killed every weekend in Chicago. The goal for the left isn’t to eliminate shootings and mass killing. If they were for life, they wouldn’t be supporters of abortion which kills many more people every year. So do car accidents, and stabbings. For them mass killings, which they have their hand in the philosophies that cause them completely, are opportunities to exploit their real aim, the abandonment of the Constitution the re-invention of America, and the acquiring of power for a large central government over an independent republic.

My advice to you dear reader is not to shop at Walmart due to their activism against guns, which is the backbone of American life in so many ways. I am writing a book on that subject as a matter of fact and I could easily fill it with content as large as War and Peace. Of course, that would be too long, so editorial considerations must be made in the process, and I’m certainly not going to try to define it here, in these little 1200-word articles. Its beyond the scope of this subject. However, Walmart has built an empire off the American lifestyle and once they turn against guns and their users, they are headed in the wrong direction and are victims of the radicals rather than helpers of a better world.

My wife has to drag me to a Walmart every time we go. She likes it, has a loyalty to them for offering goods at the lowest price possible. But what I see is an ocean of mediocrity and I like to avoid the place and the smell. My thoughts on the matter are that low prices tend to bring out low expectations in life, so in a lot of ways, Walmart has hurt people, not helped them. Lowering the bar for living a good life may not be the best thing. After all, what good is an expensive item gained cheaply if you cheat the real value. The only way to pull off that hat trick is to actually lower the value of the product itself which is the case with Walmart. The value of Walmart to a person like me is that I can buy guns and ammunition while my wife shops for groceries. If I can’t do that, then I have no value for Walmart.

And that’s the way it always is, it’s always conservatives who move toward a position that the left claims—its never the other way around and that is because conservatives are such nice people. They are just and they do have empathy while the left is like that spoiled teenager that can never be made happy. What we never talk about is why they are never happy. Its not because they don’t want to be happy, but because they use their unhappiness to change policy for themselves, so they can get one more hour on their curfew, or the keys to the family car for a night out on the town. The left throws fits of rage for the hell of it, so they can bring hell to the rest of us. They expect us to compromise while they do nothing to meet us halfway. So why in the world would we do it knowing that?

The reason is that conservatives are smarter than liberals and are naturally averse to conflict. They would rather use other aspects of their intellect to solve a problem than fight and that is what the left exploits, because like a spoiled teenager of loving parents, or guilty parents, they know they can get away with it. That is precisely how Antifa expects to inflict terrorism on us, and why the FBI drifted away from justice and became radicalized. They knew they could get away with the effort, so they went for the aggression, because nobody was standing in their way.

I am a proud member of the NRA. I just renewed my membership which I do every year at this time just so I can have the privilege of renewing it. I like knowing that I am a member, so the renewal is my way of keeping it fresh in my mind. And within that membership I see and hear from the true backbone of America, and I like those people. I take offense to it when they are called names and when my organization is attacked and called a terrorist organization. To whom? The actual domestic terrorists within our borders—the political left?

For me I do have other tools to fight with than violence and I spend most of my life using those tools. But unlike other conservatives I am not against meeting violence with violence. If that’s the only language that the left can speak, well I can assure them that I can shout louder than they can. I am not OK with Walmart turning anti-American, I am not OK with my group being called a terrorist organization. And I am not a supporter of Antifa terrorism, radical levy moms and their boycotts of businesses, teacher union losers striking for more money when kids need someone to watch them while their parents are working, and I’m not OK with an FBI that tampered with the last American election and expects to get away with it. Guns mean that my life will not be controlled by those kinds of people. Removing guns from society means those types of people will decide how I live and that isn’t acceptable. The debate isn’t one of gun control, its about what kind of America we want. Mass shootings are caused and exploited by left leaning political activists for their own brand of terrorism, and it is not the task of the political right to appease them unopposed. Since we can’t trust politicians, we have the NRA, which people like me make up. And when it is attacked, I consider it an attack on me. And that is not a good strategy on behalf of the real domestic terrorists, the political left.

The Latest Mass Shooter Seth Ator: Where liberalism has failed, they always call for gun control

It took nearly 24 hours after another gunman identified the 36 years old Texan Seth Ator as the Odessa mass shooter which led to many conspiracy theories right after the tragedy. What was different from this event was that the killer was pulled over by police and shot at as they approached his vehicle. It wasn’t necessarily a preplanned massacre as others have been, while using an AR platformed weapon to invoke mass destruction on innocent people. This time the guy was just doing his thing and when he was engaged by law enforcement that broke up whatever activity he was doing, it set him off into a volatile rage that turned deadly quick.

It was sad that immediately after there were already calls for gun control, and this time it was a bit different also. Anti-gun people revealed more what their intentions were, since it was obvious that Seth Ator had a bit of a criminal record. Just like with health care it was the Obama part of it that was sold with the intention of going to a public option and complete socialist takeover. Well, the red flag laws that have been proposed, as well as the background checks are just the beginning. Gun grabbers and solid political leftists want guns removed from society. They quickly were using this case as one where open carry wouldn’t have worked, and tried immediately to apply the shooters “white guy” status to support their attempts at gun control. Its all been part of their overall story, angry white guys are dangerous, racist and that they created America and all that needs to be erased from history. But to do that, of course they have to take away the guns because that’s what keeps such a rebellion from happening.

However, as I have said, and from what we know is directly applicable to this case, failed parental structures are what is causing these mass shootings, the values these kids are not getting in their families is far more destructive than any other element. Then as has been the case with every shooter lately, we are still learning about this one, but drugs both legal and illegal have played a part in altering the consciousness of the attackers. All those elements are foundations of liberal policy in the failed experiments of replacing the family with government and the results are exploding on our streets now that many of the basic foundations of proper behavior have been eroded away into this anarchy movement that we see everywhere these days.

There were early reports that this guy was on meth and was an Antifa member which I stated wouldn’t have surprised me at all. To be honest, at 36 he’s a little old for Antifa terrorism, but it would be closer to a reality than to say he was a good Christian kid from Odessa that just freaked out one day and killed a bunch of people at a traffic stop. Liberals want to remove guns from our society because they have made kids like this killer with their social policies and they are determined to use every tragedy that occurs to attack America’s gun culture, and they truly expect everyone to just take it, and go along with implied guilt for things they had nothing to do with. But the left did. As is typical of all these recent shooters, Ator came from a divorced home. While divorce has been around for a while, it only became common in our society over the last few decades. There was a stigma against it in the 70s and 80s. If a woman became pregnant prior to that period, you got married and you forced yourself to live happily ever after so that you could grow a family. And when you got older and couldn’t stand each other anymore, you still stayed married because it was the right thing to do for the kids. Because kids psychologically need parental structure, no matter how much they rebel. They need the structure of a father and a mother, and when that is replaced with something else, such as a government welfare check, a student loan program, or any form of handout that replaces a father as head of a family, we see trouble in the products of that family, the children.

Not that every young person who has a dad that lives across town and must watch their parents date other people and spend Thanksgivings with their new boyfriends and girlfriends, they don’t go out and shoot a bunch of people just for the hell of it. But it is a problem among a large portion of our population, just as heavy marijuana use is an indicator of psychotic behavior in a minority of their users. Not everyone who smokes pot becomes a killer just as not everyone growing up without a dad does, but it is certainly an indicator of future violent behavior.

I will be the first to say that the kind of world I want to live in, where we openly carry our guns, everywhere, that such a society would require the best of what our culture could produce. People in such a society would be well educated, would not abuse drugs and alcohol, and would come from solid families with loving backgrounds. The only reason we don’t have such a society is because left leaning activists want all the bad things, broken families, reckless—inconsequential sex, drug abuse, and an ignorant population. And to have those things, they don’t want guns so everyone can kill each other. They want the deviant behavior and they don’t want consequences. That is the real issue and no law proposed could fix that.

The anti-police stance of Antifa likely did have more to do with Seth Ator opening fire on the police as they approached his vehicle after a traffic stop. The solution for the political left is to take away all guns so that Seth Ator wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do such a thing. But of course the ignorance of that proposal is that it does nothing to correct the desire to shoot a cop in the first place. After the initial attack against the police, Ator drove around killing random people, but there clearly wasn’t a plan. It was behavior driven and the elements that created that behavior that was the real cause. If it wasn’t guns, it would have been something else. Killers and lunatics will use anything to invoke a menace on a population if they are unhappy, which is why guns are needed to keep such things from getting out of control. In an open carry environment, he would have been shot by a good guy with a gun sooner, but this was different because he was in a car driving around before people could really get a sense of what was going on.

Without question these shootings are more political than demanding a legal mandate because no law proposed, background checks, red flag laws, or even illegal drug enforcement will change these occurrences. They are the results of liberalism injected into an otherwise conservative society and the conflict that is the natural biproduct. At the very least in this case was the lack of a biological family that was stable and secure. Mom and dad were divorced, and some people just can’t handle that. Their anger may project outward to innocent members of society, but the root cause is the broken family and the disappointments of a child that was robbed of that basic security. We would do better to make divorce illegal than guns. But to admit such a thing, liberals would have to admit that their social experiment of removing dads from homes and attacking the core values of American life has been a failure. And they certainly won’t do that. They’d rather blame guns.
