Texas shooting isn't as
simple as it seems

Original Article

Nothing is ever as simple as good guy versus bad guy. Reality exists mostly in varying shades of gray. But there is no question Jack Wilson acted heroically as a church volunteer security guard when he killed a killer in the sanctuary of the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, on Sunday. Wilson, a deeply experienced firearms instructor, was legally carrying and took down a gunman with a single shot. Are we relegated to finding solace in the fact that only three people died inside of a church in the latest tragedy, and must we seek comfort

Comments:

I've read this twice and still don't get the man's point. It seems to be that guns are bad, Texans who have guns are bad and we're going to have to fix that problem. I wonder how he feels about how to prevent invasions of synagogues with a machete?

CNN is in mourning. The bad guy with a gun, got stopped by a good guy with a gun - I'm seconds. That's not supposed to happen.

The lunacy of arguing that more people should have died because good men should have been disarmed. May these people never pull the levers of power. They are intellectually disabled by hyper partisan ideology.

You notice he counted the monster as one of the innocent dead? Only a left-wing, progressive, liberal, socialist, marxist, communist or whatever they're calling themselves today attacks and criticizes people who carry guns to protect themselves or others

One arguement he attempts to make is that since one victim was killed before he could pull his own gun that armed worshipers is't the answer. What? Noseriebob, that means that counting on a lone defender runs the risk of that defender going down first leaving the rest to play sitting duck. I have terrifying news for you Jimmy, every government and constitution or other construct on earth is backed up by a gun, lots of them. The only discussion is by how many and who has them. You'd evidently rather that government have a monopoly on the use of force. You might want to read a history book or two and see how that worked out for people with your point of view. Some of them are still alive to tell, ask a holocaust survivor.

I will posit Mr. Moore the same task he throws out: sit down right now and try writing an enforceable law that results in fewer deaths than occurred here. Until then, quit your predictable bleating.

My favorite line was, and I'm paraphrasing, 'even liberals have guns but their explanation is much more sensible and informed.' Leave it to CNN to make lemons out of lemonade.

I am put in mind of the pure stupidity exhibited by Robert Reich when he advanced his support for a $15.00 minimum wage by saying, 'sure some people will lose their jobs, but it's the right thing to do!" It's right to put people out of work? It's right to put companies out of business? It's right that most people working at minimum wage are students and part time workers trying to get ahead elsewhere? The idiocy of the left on full parade...

Moore says, in the article, that because the use of a gun stopped a possible mass murder situation, it's OK for pro gun advocates to talk about it. He conveniently forgets that when there's no good guy with a gun, it's OK for the anti-gun nuts to start calling for gun bans before the last body hits the ground.

Another bleeding-heart liberal lamenting the invention of firearms and subsequent popularity among American citizens. Nobody makes you buy a gun, numbskull, but you sure would have been happy to have them that day in that church. Of course, authors such as this one usually congregate at ultra-leftist Unitarian churches where they "kumbaya" each other to sleep.

No matter how clearly a good guy killed a murderer, CNN hates it. CNN wants all of us disarmed so that the Dems can order us to do whatever THEY decide is good for us, not go to church, pay higher taxes, abort our babies, stop driving cars, stop being free. CNN is a representative of the tyrants who want to run our lives and destroy our freedoms. CNN is evil.

Moore wants to know what should be done. How about CNN, et al, begin talking seriously about the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death. How about telling the truth about the disparities in black on white vs. white on black crime. How about talking talking straight--no pun intended--about proper human sexual conduct. How about speaking the facts about graduating from high school, getting a job, marrying, then having children---in that order--leading to happier life outcomes, less poverty, and children who grow into productive adult citizens. In other words, reverse the whole leftoid narrative that misleads and deceives people about how life really works.

In his haste to prove that it's actually bad for citizens to own guns and stop murderous bad guys since some of the ones with guns didn't get to shoot, Moore forgot to push for abolishing the police. After all, the police did not show up in time to stop the shooter, so what good are they?

Unquestionably, Mr. Jack Wilson's immediate draw and his lethally accurate shot to the head of the perpetrator kept the murders in the Texas church down to two, as tragic as those two murders* were. There were several others present at the church who were also carrying guns, and who would have done what Mr. Wilson did a moment later if he hadn't first. God bless all the defenders, the sheepdogs. In this case the wolf didn't get nearly as far as he might have otherwise... or as far as he might have in a marked gun free zone where law abiding citizens normally stupidly obey such PC foolishness and get slaughtered if the worst happens. Do you remember Pulse nightclub in Orlando, where 49 innocents died? The killer's rampage lasted six seconds before he was cut down. If it had lasted twelve seconds another two or three would have died. In a minute over a dozen would have perished. The more well trained citizens we have carrying legal firearms, the safer our environs will be, not to mention a whole lot more dangerous for criminals who ply their trade on us. In March 2018 our incredulous eyes read the following headline from CBS Los Angeles: "Superintendent: School Shooters ‘Will Be Stoned’ By Students Armed With Buckets Of Rocks." Yes, they were actually suggesting that students and faculty face gunmen by throwing rocks. A lot of rocks, as they were being shot. But you know that the rocks are in the heads of anyone stupid enough to utter such idiocy out loud. What's next? Bear spray? Boiling oil and gravity? Anything but guns. Anything at all, no matter who dies. Hey, Mr. Superintendent, don't feel so all alone. Everybody must get stoned. (BTW, what are you smokin'? Whatever it is, it's some strong stuff.) *CNN's James C. Moore equates the would be mass murderer's death with his two victims': just monstrous.

Led Zeppelin: Stairway to Heaven

A US appeals court has reinstated a ruling that British rockers Led Zeppelin did not steal part of their song Stairway to Heaven from another band. The San Francisco 11-judge panel affirmed a 2016 judgment that found no proof the classic 1971 Zeppelin song breached the copyright of Taurus, written by Randy Wolfe from a Los Angeles band called Spirit. In 2018 that ruling was overturned by a three-judge panel in San Francisco, which said certain instructions to the district court jury had been “erroneous and prejudicial”, and failed to clarify that the arrangement of elements in the public domain could be considered original.

Less than two decades ago, President Donald Trump described himself as “pro-choice in every respect.” He’s now the most pro-life president in modern history, rolling back Obama-era abortion funding, and nominating conservative Supreme Court justices. Critics and conservatives alike remain skeptical that he is personally pro-life, yet pro-lifers offer him fervent support due to his policies. However transactional his evolution on the issue seems, it may be having a broader effect down the ballot. Rep. Kay Granger is the highest-ranking Republican woman in the House, and represents the 12th district of Texas, which encompasses half of Tarrant County, the most reliably red, urban county

During a democratic town hall event hosted by the Human Rights Campaign and CNN on October 10, 2019, then-candidate Beto O’Rourke proposed revoking the tax-exempt status of churches and religious organizations that oppose gay marriage. “There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break,” he intoned, “for anyone, or any institution, any organization in America, that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us.” O’Rourke’s abuse of the term “civil rights”—his pandering attempt to borrow the moral grandeur of 1964 in order to abrogate the First Amendment—is no longer an anomaly.

Elizabeth Warren’s campaign brass realized they had bungled her budget at the worst possible time. Several weeks before the Iowa and New Hampshire elections, they discovered their fundraising projections for the fourth quarter of 2019 were far too rosy. The army of organizers they hired when fundraising and polling were at their peak — it ultimately ballooned to over 1,000 people — had become a straitjacket. Donations nosedived after an Oct. 15 debate, when Warren was bombarded by her rivals. Strapped for cash, the campaign didn’t have enough money to run the TV and digital ads they had originally planned for early contests

On March 6, 1836, after 13 days of intermittent fighting, the Battle of the Alamo comes to a gruesome end, capping off a pivotal moment in the Texas Revolution. Mexican forces were victorious in recapturing the fort, and nearly all of the roughly 200 Texan defenders—including legendary frontiersman Davy Crockett—died. Thirteen days earlier, on February 23, Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna ordered a siege of the Alamo Mission (near present-day San Antonio), which had been occupied by rebel Texas forces since December. An army of over 1,000 Mexican soldiers began descending on the makeshift fort and setting up artillery.

“Not me, us.” The message that Bernie Sanders has campaigned on throughout the 2020 primary became a self-soothing mantra for his supporters last night. At a bar in Washington, D.C.’s Penn Quarter neighborhood—just blocks from the theater where Abraham Lincoln was shot—a group of more than 100 Sanders followers stood, shoulder to shoulder, facing two massive projector screens, as results from Super Tuesday states trickled in. The event, hosted by a local Democratic Socialists of America group, had all the hallmarks of a gathering of Bernie fans: a patchwork of flannel shirts, scattered baskets of red-rose buttons, and very few people over the age of 35. Yet the mood was uncharacteristically somber.
