Orlando Massacre: Radical Islam is at War With Us -- And So Is Our Administration

      It's been two months, and it's happened again: a Muslim with links to the Middle East, radical Islam and terror organizations has killed on American soil. Forty-nine innocents have died, with a like number injured. The Administration, Progressive politicians and the media immediately lept to the attack - not against this new, emerging threat, but at their old, bitter blood enemy: the Nation's gun owners. 

      Politicians and activists sprang before the cameras demanding their usual nonsensical "common sense" nostrums with well practiced ease. They scrupulously avoiding more than a passing reference to the fanaticism at the attack's core. Our feckless leader whined about being criticized for never using the words Radical Islam - while still never actually using the words Radical Islam. However, he's very definitive about the unconstitutional secret gun ban list and reviving the ineffectual Clinton assault rifle law. Hillary danced through the blood to slam her opponent for supposedly "engaging in inflammatory, anti-Muslim rhetoric that made the country less safe." <unqoute> She also waved the bloody shirt at gun owners and the NRA. 

      The media has gleefully hyped the tragedy, incessantly scoring the Orlando attack as the largest gun massacre. They're refusing to provide the context of the Paris, London and Russian attacks. They're also completely ignoring the largest night club massacre, where an immigrant used just a single gallon of gasoline to immolate 87 victims; it just doesn't fit the narrative. And Orlando wasn't even near the toll of the largest American mass killing. 

    The Left's long running hoplophobia is in full flame: They're trying to make sweeping changes based on this one tragic incident that is thankfully extremely rare.  Nonsensical "common sense" solutions, are flying around at the speed of opinions. The left is intent on destroying the Enumerated Rights of hundreds of millions of Americans in the demonstrated ridiculous hope of keeping arms from jihadists who are supported by terrorist organizations able to span the globe. After all, the terrorist in Paris had no trouble getting fully automatic AK-47s for their attacks. 

     It's going to get worse - much worse. The Administration, Progressive and media attacks will escalate. As will the terrorist attacks. We will very likely need our weapons exactly when they are being threatened by the left. Fight the threat that the administration is importing, assisting and enabling. Fight the threat that political correctness will not challenge. Fight the madness that the Progressives will allow destroy us. Ensure that our political leaders still retain enough backbone to first for the Constitution and the citizens. Join the NRA. Fight for our future. Fight. 

    By the way: the largest American mass murder we mention before? That was at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, where 150 men, women and children of the Lakota Indian Nation were murdered by the US Government. The attack came shortly after the Lakota's were disarmed.  Something to think about.  

Quote of the Day — Dom Raso (June 15, 2016)

In a new video on NRA News, in response to the shooting at the "Pulse" nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and the newly re-proposed* "gun control" laws:
Let's run through some of the latest attacks and see how banning so-called "assault weapons" would have turned out. California already bans "assault weapons". That didn't stop San Bernardino. No ban on ARs, or any guns, would have stopped the Boston Marathon bombing. ISIS's well-coordinated attack in France wasn't deterred by the country's strict "gun control" laws. Brussels' gun ban did nothing to stop terrorists from killing.

But every single one of those tragedies ended with police officers carrying AR-15s rushing to the scene as fast as possible.

Hillary's solution to stopping terror attacks is to ban the very gun that >stops terror attacks, and she calls that "common sense".
I only have one nit-pick: The gun does not stop terror attacks, any more than it causes terror attacks. What stops terror attacks is prepared people — police or private citizens — showing up with the skills and/or tools required to make the bad guy(s) stop, using deadly force if necessary (which with terrorists, it often is).

Watch the whole thing:
