On CNN’s The Lead With Jake Tapper, they are indicating that the Roanoke shooter owned several gay porn sites under his own name.
Between 2007 and 2008 the BGM (black, gay murderer) registered seven domain names, soliciting for “attractive and muscular men” to model for live webcams.
CNN discovered that the BGM’s true name and a Vallejo address were included in the registrations for these gay pornographic sites. In those times he worked for NDG Interactive according to the BGM’s LinkedIn site — a “business” that also was registered under the BGM’s true name.
Additionally, police found a number of items in his car (the point of his self-inflicted gunshot wound), to include the pistol itself, ammunition, and items inventoried by the local officers above. Items included a “to-do” list, 17 stamped letters and a disguise kit in a briefcase with three license plates.
This clearly precludes any such argument that the BGM “popped” at the last moment. He had instead given his act considered thought to the point of planning for his escape and further documentation of the event. These items show intent, state of mind, pre-planning and malice aforethought.
The BGM also sent a text message to another person admitting he had done “something stupid.”
I repeat: this is not an issue of gun control, though the father of the murdered cameraman is making it so. I understand his pain. More about that later. But the firearm utilized was purchased lawfully and the BGM was backgrounded as required by law.
So: was he crazy? Or was he plotting, conniving — an actual evil person?
Is it a gun control issue? Is it a mental health issue? Is it a work security issue? Is it a situational awareness issue? Or is it a race issue that won’t, like usual, be addressed?
What is this?
We know from history that Leftists will make this, immediately, a gun control issue. Because it fits that meme wonderfully.
We are also soon to see “poor black employee discriminated-against at work, feels no option left but to take his own retribution.”
Better yet, this will soon morph to “poor black and gay employee discriminated-against at work and feels no option left but to take his own retribution.”
How about “racist, sexist black gay male who feels himself nothing but a victim because he’s been told he’s a victim all his life by those who profit from Victimhood”? How about that meme?
Americans have been told, and the information reinforced daily, that we are nothing if we are not victims of something. Victims of Caucasoids, victims of sexism, ageism, racism, victims of oppression, victims of our environment, of our teachers, of our neighbors, of the police, of everyone but government because, as all good Leftists know, government is the source of all good things big and small. Just ask Julia.
The suspect, whose names doesn’t deserve mentioning here, was censured for wearing an Obama sticker while conducting in interview at a pollng place when he worked at the TV station.
He was fired Friday, February 1st of 2013 from the station and made a big deal about same, to the point where police were called. It was the fault of everyone else; never him. Then Wednesday occurred.
He had “grievances” and wanted to be a “big deal” live and direct. But what kind of a “deal” was he really? Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke informs us all:
“Never speak of this guy again.” With one major exception: the moment the news came out, the American Media Maggots and Demorats/Leftists wasted no time in trotting out the ancient gun control saw.
Really? For a firearm that was purchased legally? For a person that could lawfully own a firearm in Virginia after having been backgrounded? Try examining the facts again, Leftists. But facts mean nothing to you when it’s all about the gun control meme.
To me, this sounds like a replay of LAPD’s Chris Dorner. He too had “grievances” and decided to solve them by killing his fellow employees.
Men who saw victimhood and racism and sexism and all sorts of -isms under every rock, behind every curtain and in every nook and cranny encountered in their lives.
Which gave them their own personal licenses to kill. Mentally disturbed men. Men of whom other persons said “you know, I kinda saw this coming.”
People saw the TV reporter suspect coming. But they couldn’t say anything because he possessed the terrible duality of being black and gay. Lord knows we can’t judge black people or gays. Black and gay? No way, not touching that one.
But here’s the hard truth, America. The truth you don’t want to see or admit.
You are producing these people.
These people with grievances.
You, as parents, are responsible for producing people who believe that they are entitled to any number of positions and stations in life. They are entitled to the latest technology, the latest games, the latest phones and tablets, the best and newest clothes, the nicest cars, the best jobs, the smoothest schedules and days off, the easiest working conditions, plus hot-and-cold-running promotions. Just for showing up. If they show up. You should be blessed they deigned to show up.
The TV reporter suspect, his machinations didn’t start last week or last year or ten years ago. The Grievance Factory started churning him out when he was a child. He displayed these tendencies when he was small, and the family and neighborhood and schools and teachers reinforced his feelings of entitlement.
To put it bluntly: your kids are nice but they’re nothing special. They lie, they cheat, they steal, they underperform, they come sniveling back to their parents and parents forgive them. Then school forgives them. Then society forgives them. They can come home and mommy and daddy will pet them and feed them. Their “exceptional individuality” is nurtured and coddled and soothed. They are industrially inculcated with their own sense of overinflated worth and pumped up with fallacious esteem. People must appreciate them, love them, just because they exist. Just because they are.
Helicopter parents. Parents who insist there is nothing for which their children must take responsibility or be accountable or be disciplined or face consequences or — gulp — experience failure.
Consequences. Failure. The ability to cope and press on. Life.
You’re not talking about me, you say. You’re not talking about my kids. You’ve gone too far, BZ.
In the meantime, parents and the Grievance Factory just keeps churning ’em out.
“There there, Julia, it’s not your fault.”
And I haven’t even addressed the massive issue of mental health — or the lack thereof — in America.
There you go, giving Leftists more ammunition, so to speak.
You perchance could have said something akin to “longer sentences for crimes where a gun was used, tougher penalties for all crimes, greater training for CCW permits in concert with a greater number of CCW permits issued.”
You could have said, “you want to see how guns save lives? Try reading every monthly issue of NRA’s “American Rifleman,” as you can see with your own eyes clearly documented events where owners of firearms have repelled attacks from criminals and/or saved themselves or family members.
You had to say, so that it gets blared into and onto every Leftist outlet across the US and the globe:
I mean basically the only way to guarantee that we will dramatically reduce acts of violence involving guns is to basically remove guns from society, and until somebody gets enough “oomph” to repeal the Second Amendment, that’s not going to happen.
To wit (or perhaps more accurately, witless):
Trust me, Leftists would be more than willing to take you up on that clarion call, you moron.
San Francisco’s Hollow Point Ban Endangers Lives: Just Ask The NYPD
by Awr Hawkins
Hard left gun control proponents have a habit of passing laws–ostensibly to save lives–which actually do just the opposite. San Francisco’s hollow point ammunition ban is just such a law.
A hollow point bullet is a bullet that expands in diameter once it hits the right kind of tissue. These are exceptional self-defense rounds because their expansion creates a larger wound cavity. A hollow point bullet is therefore far more likely to stop an attacker with one shot–maybe two–verses full metal jacket rounds fired in the same caliber.
A full metal jacket round is just what it sounds like–fully metal. It is a ball of lead covered in copper which is smooth and slick and enters the body without tearing and ripping like a hollow point.
So San Francisco banned hollow points but allows full metal jacket and that means everything is safer, right?
Wrong. It actually means everything is now more dangerous.
Why? Because of the issue of penetration. Hollow point bullets are designed to respond primarily to human threats. That is why they are utilized by law enforcement agencies. They are meant to damage human tissue and stop the attack, not to over-penetrate and exit the body.
A full metal jacket bullet in a hot caliber has a tendency to go all the way through an individual, whereas a hollow point grinds to a halt in the body. What this means is that San Francisco’s hollow point bullet ban opens the door to more people getting shot with bullets that have passed through intended targets and struck innocents in the background.
Did the NYPD learn a lesson from the HP bullet ban?
NYPD police commissioner Howard Safir put it this way: “We are, in fact, going to switch to hollow-point ammunition as soon as we receive it. They are much safer than fully jacketed bullets, which will go through a person or tumble through a person’s organs and then continue on and hit innocent victims.”
Thanks San Francisco. Another reason — amongst many — why I’m glad I don’t live there.
NRA: Gun blogs, videos, web forums threatened by new Obama regulation
by Paul Bedard
Commonly used and unregulated internet discussions and videos about guns and ammo could be closed down under rules proposed by the State Department, amounting to a “gag order on firearm-related speech,” the National Rifle Association is warning.
In updating regulations governing international arms sales, State is demanding that anyone who puts technical details about arms and ammo on the web first get the OK from the federal government — or face a fine of up to $1 million and 20 years in jail.
What? Is the federal government insane? That would essentially outlaw gun blogs, gun magazines or any discussions about firearms.
Which, of course, would help the Obama Leftist Socialist Organization help to rid Americans of firearms — only so that the Proles, the Groundlings, the Serfs would be disarmed and more easily controlled.
Who would possibly put up with this? The push is a governmental assault on the First Amendment itself — again, by the Obama Administration.
According to the NRA, that would include blogs and web forums discussing technical details of common guns and ammunition, the type of info gun owners and ammo reloaders trade all the time.
“Gunsmiths, manufacturers, reloaders, and do-it-yourselfers could all find themselves muzzled under the rule and unable to distribute or obtain the information they rely on to conduct these activities,” said the NRA in a blog posting.
Again, all perfectly in keeping with the Obama Administration’s wish to completely disarm the citizens of this nation, a true goal of Leftists globally.
I have always said that when you lose the Second Amendment, you will lose the First Amendment.
In this instance, here is Mr Obama and his Leftists attempting to hobble and denigrate both amendments simultaneously. I couldn’t possibly have conjured that possible. Except that, now, I certainly can. This is certainly nothing if not innovative on behalf of the Obama Left. With this addition: the prohibition also focuses on the internet as well, and seeks to clamp down on the internet. Almost a Perfect Trifecta of prohibitive Leftism.
The NRA agrees.
“This latest regulatory assault, published in the June 3 issue of the Federal Register, is as much an affront to the First Amendment as it is to the Second,” warned the NRA’s lobbying shop. “Your action is urgently needed to ensure that online blogs, videos, and web forums devoted to the technical aspects of firearms and ammunition do not become subject to prior review by State Department bureaucrats before they can be published,” it added.
What could possibly be the reason for eliminating speech about firearms?
At issue is the internet. State is updating International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which implement the federal Arms Export Control Act (AECA). The rules govern everything from guns to strategic bombers.
Never in my 60+ years on this planet have I seen my country’s freedoms so hideously and naked assaulted by my federal government. I can only conclude one thing: this federal governments ultimately seeks total control and authority over each and every persons within its borders to the point where there can be no pushback, no dissension, no verbal or written disagreement on any level in any venue whatsoever.
For what other purpose would rules and regulations such as this exist?
