#FrameTheDebate: Criminal & Crazy Control

A brilliant friend of mine, Joe Walker, took a 365 challenge to post a graphic every day. His work is fabulous and he is a fantastic man to boot. Following his 365 example I tried to write every day for a year on this blog. I did it, making a mess of my daily count (#mathimpaired) but I did indeed complete the challenge.

One piece I wrote included homage to Daniel Greenfield. I LOVE Daniel Greenfield. Truly. I love him for his brilliantly reasoned writing. The flow and tone in his articles move through my soul and very often settle my frenetic thoughts on a subject. In fact, I wish I had seen this before posting my thoughts on #RedFlagLaws for I certainly would have added it to the reading list:

WE NEED CRIMINAL AND CRAZY CONTROL, NOT GUN CONTROL

When criminals and psychos aren’t locked up, then everyone ends up in jail.

Gun controllers insist that the Founding Fathers never anticipated the problem of mass shooters. That’s probably true. But they would have also never tolerated the conditions that brought them into being, a permissive criminal justice system, a failure to institutionalize the mentally ill, and a media that promotes these acts of violence under the guise of condemning them and clamoring for gun control. 

This piece by Michelle Malkin is an excellent read in the demonizing of the Military whistleblowers. False allegations and labeling, or red-flagging those who oppose government bureaucrats who have a little authority as the bureaucrats suppose, is nothing new. Just ask anyone falsely accused of anything by a bureaucrat. This article is proof of how Red Flag Laws will work if instituted across America.

BEWARE THE GUN-GRABBING CRISIS VULTURES

How the VA 'red-flags' patriots.

Understanding abuse of power by bureaucrats makes it easy to fully appreciate this segment with Eric Brakey on the rationale of the Second Amendment.

Erick is right! “If the people are not allowed the means to self-defense then we are not citizens, we’re subjects.”

Taking guns away from law abiding gun owners is NOT the solution if it does not include due process. Under today’s Red Flag Laws Thomas Massie and John R. Lott, Jr. point out:

‘Red Flag’ Laws Are the Wrong Solution to Mass Shootings

“During the first nine months after Florida passed its red-flag law last year, judges granted more than 1,000 confiscation orders. In the three months after Maryland’s law went into effect on October 1, more than 300 people had their guns confiscated. In one case in Arundel County, a 61-year-old man died when the police stormed his home at 5 a.m. to take away his guns. Connecticut and Indiana, which have had these laws in effect for the longest time, have seen increasingly large numbers of confiscation orders.” 

 

If you do not know who Jonathan Dunne is, then please check out his website and podcasts. As Freedom’s Disciple, he truly understands how to #FrameTheDebate as he discusses the:

Roots of Gun Control & The Solutions

 

One of the greatest mass killings took place on 9/11 2001, and as Jonathan points out (around 20:22 minutes) it had nothing to do with guns. Neither did the Oklahoma Bombings. Dunne attributes these heinous acts to a “health, heart and head problem” that needs be solved.

The Social Elitists and their minions have been pushing for gun control for more than thirty years. Red Flag Laws are the most disturbing push for the subjective nature of accusations that can or might be leveled to usurp the unalienable right to keep and bear arms.

Criminals and Crazy people will always circumvent the law, the rules, the norms or a moral society. And almost always, it is the liars, deceivers, and power seekers demanding and influencing the crazies to take #Control by hurting people and taking their stuff.

So yeah. We definitely need Criminal and Crazy control.

Red Flag Laws: Opposing Freedom

I just got off the telephone comment line to the Whitehouse to make sure my voice is heard about preserving the 2nd Amendment by opposing Red Flag Laws. I also sent an email to President Trump on the subject. (Tip: call the Switchboard, 202-456-1414, if the comment line is busy.

Aside from my personal experience in listening to the Gun Control debate for the last 40 years+, I thought it prudent to list some of my current reads and favorite video clips that have firmed my stance on why I am concerned over who’s watching the watchers, against additional background checks, and the importance of fighting off those who wish to control this issue through emotional rhetoric.

Today Front Page Magazine put out a fabulous article that clearly articulates the need for discussion:

FROM EL PASO TO FORT HOOD

When the FBI failed to prevent a mass murder they knew was coming.

Glenn Beck’s book CONTROL is the best when it comes to documentation on the issue, and then some. His company, BlazeTV.com has many hosts who have raised the warnings, and you should hear from their guests!

 

Dana Loesch is one of the best when it comes to articulating and fighting for the Second Amendment:

Why Red Flag Laws Are Not A Good Solution To Mass Shootings

Do you feel comfortable giving up a cornerstone of our republic for a safety dependent upon enforcement by a government that has failed at this before?

Great segment here with Simon Sinek: “It’s not about guns, it’s about kids being lonely…”

Here are two wonderful educational videos with the late and great Charlton Heston:

In a clarion call to action here is a reminder about the importance of making sure President Trump hears your voice in defense of the Second Amendment and opposition to Red Flag Laws:
