Incontrovertible Fact Refutes Gun-Grabber Ravings Following Texas Church Killings

If left to the citizen disarmament cultists, heroes Stephen Willeford and Johnnie Langendorff would not only have been powerless to stop the killer, they would have been defenseless against him. (Facebook photos)

To the surprise of no one in the gun owner rights advocacy community, the citizen disarmament cult has been going spittle-flecked lip crazy since news of the killings at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, broke Sunday, even before any other facts were known.  And to the surprise of no one, their outrage focused on misplacing blame, further infringements, and in many cases, unmasked hatred.

Leading gun-grabbers used the fresh blood dance opportunity to apportion guilt to the National Rifle Association. Democrat politicians saw a way to grandstand and to call for more disarmament. Dilettante celebrities could not resist adding their ignorant pronouncements. And from the useful idiot segment on social media, no shortage of death wishes for gun owners were expressed, including some I found opining the victims got what they deserved because of the demographics of who they were.

The raw hatred against “normals” by the left is that strong.  They really are the last people you’d want to disarm for.

For all the noise, one incontrovertible fact emerges from the aftermath investigations:

It was armed citizens who stopped him and saved more lives. It was literally the “good guy with a gun” the anti-gunners ridicule so often and so loudly that proved them so profoundly wrong. If left to the capabilities of the loudest critics of keeping, and especially of bearing arms, the killer would have escaped and been free to kill more innocents.

Over the coming days we will certainly learn more, but that fact should remain constant. As will one other, which again, should come as no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention:

Based on their own words and actions, ungrateful and subversive heirs of liberty hate you and would rather see you and yours dead than armed.

NOTE: This was originally written based on media accounts that the killer had received a dishonorable discharge, which would have made him a prohibited person. Later reports say it was a bad conduct discharge and that it would not have triggered the prohibition, but ATF form 4473 asks: “Have you ever been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence?”

    So much of this hate is a direct result of years of lies and vitriol promulgated by the “media”. The left are some of the most hateful and insensitive people on the planet.

      @ Bob, I could not agree with you more. Only problem is when do we have to really fight back? I hate to think of it, it will be a total mess. And the likes of Soros and the elitists ilks must have something quite big waiting, but what? It is like the what and why are quite clear, but the what are we playing into isn’t.

      ONE report said he wore the garb of ANTIFA. And this attack happened on the day ANTIFA said they would attack the nation. Notice how the media is ignoring this

    Those that live in gated communities, apartments with doormen and hired security have no concept of personal self protection or protecting the lives of those around you. Thank God armed “good guys” intervened and, at great personal risk, saved uncountable lives while putting their own on the line. Until the anti-gun crowd has their own lives saved by a legal licensed to carry citizen, they will be blind to the many benefits of a free society allowing individual gun ownership.

    The REAL goal is to disarm us. That way the elite will be able to take control and dictate everything to us and we will be just as dead as those who opposed Hitler, Stalin, Mao or the other tyrants.
    Who am I accusing? \NEW WORLD ORDER aka Bilderbergs.

    Imagine if we had an organized Militia that required all able bodied men to carry their arms, even to Church.
    Would the community know of those who should be watched carefully?
    Would those planning such attacks have to think a long time before committing the act?
    Would the death toll be anywhere near the count?
    Would our pretend representatives even be broaching the subject of gun control if they knew they would be indicted by a grand jury actually controlled by the people, and protected from interference by the authority of Militia?
    Get the point?

    Ladies and Gents,
    Get your concealed carry permits then lock, load, and carry. This is the modern day version of the militia and a DIY approach to homeland security. Cheap, empowering…

      There are over 100,000,000 people who live in states that prevent the public from maintaining anything representative of what statutes authorize Militia to hold.
      The most populace state in the Union prevents its citizens from carrying any weapon at any time other than going directly to a range and back home.
      What is the population of cities around the country that will not issue carry permits.

    One of the things I noticed is the “Deadliest Mass shooting in Texas History” narrative. Wrong, wrong WRONG! The “Deadliest Mass shooting in Texas History” is Waco, and the FBI taking out the Branch Davidians.

    Lest we forget, in 1789 there were mentally unstable, felonious, drunk, woman beaters, no different from today. Yet, the Second Amendment stipulates “People” and “Shall Not Be Infringed.” Anytime we allow the Government to redefine which “People” are excluded (especially Ex Post Facto), they will habitually continue to redefine “People” until it is everyone. It’s time to make a stand…..or pretty soon there will be nothing to stand on.

    Also consider that in Waco there was an unsubstantiated Bill of Attainder performed that got called a mistake. That’s one hell of a mistake! It’s especially disgusting when the people creating the narrative today, are the ones who performed the dirty deed yesterday. Let’s make them aware of their deeds!
