Coverage and emphasis UP, not gun crime

Guns Just In CaseThe thing I find particularly frustrating about the ongoing gun control and Second Amendment argument involves the clear lack of facts in the discussion.  With 41 years of law enforcement experience I have seen crime at its peak and at its zenith.  At this point, crime in America peaked in 1991 — oddly enough, when I was a Detective in the Robbery Bureau.  It was nothing for me to carry a monthly caseload of 40 to 50 reports, and there were five other detectives in the unit with a similar caseload.

Since then, the gun homicide rate has gone down 49%.

Despite national attention to the issue of firearm violence, most Americans are unaware that gun crime is lower today than it was two decades ago. According to a new Pew Research Center survey, today 56% of Americans believe gun crime is higher than 20 years ago and only 12% think it is lower.

With that in mind, a brave criminologist dares to speak the truth.  From, of all places,

James Alan Fox: Umpqua shooting – a tragedy, not a trend

Another mass shooting sears deep into our collective consciousness, but it is hype and hysteria on the rise, not violence.

by James Alan Fox

Another mass shooting sears deep into the collective consciousness of the American people. Another school — this time a community college in an otherwise peaceful town in rural Oregon — is devastated by a young man taking aim at students trapped in classrooms. Nine are murdered, and many others wounded, before the gunman is killed in a shootout with the police.

Within a few hours, President Obama appeared before the camera, reinforcing the notion that America is under siege. “Somehow this has become routine,” noted Obama with obvious emotion. “The reporting is routine.”

Mr Fox writes with insight and truth:

Although the sense of urgency may be overstated, Obama is certainly correct about the almost formulaic media response. The Oregon shooting had countless news outlets flooding the airwaves and the Internet with questionable statistics on the incidence of mass shootings along with sidebar listings of the deadliest shooting sprees in U.S. history. In the usual rush to offer up some breaking information, news reports were embellished with unconfirmed details about the massacre and the assailant that did little but fuel a contagion of fear.

It is this PSH (Pants-Shitting Hysteria) — ginned up by Leftists — which has a distinct purpose.

Further adding to the state of alarm and confusion, headlines featured scary yet conflicting statistics from various sources. By reducing the standard threshold in defining a mass shooting (four or more killed by gunfire, not including the perpetrator), the incidence can reach incredible proportions. For example, the “Mass Shooting Tracker” website redefines a mass shooting as an incident in which at least four people (including the assailant) are shot, but not necessarily killed. By this criterion, there have been nearly 300 thus far this year.

Mr Fox nails the truth in his final paragraph.

According to a careful analysis of data on mass shootings (using the widely accepted definition of at least four killed), the Congressional Research Service found that there are, on average, just over 20 incidents annually. More important, the increase in cases, if there was one at all, is negligible. Indeed, the only genuine increase is in hype and hysteria.

With all that, why the Leftist emphasis on gun control?  To what point or end?  There is only one conclusion to draw.

In fact, the New York Daily News demands that the US State Department categorize the NRA as a terrorist organization:

On October 3–two days after a gunman killed 10 at the gun free facilities on the Umpqua Community College campus–the New York Daily News called for the U.S. State Department to designate the National Rifle Association (NRA) a “terrorist organization.”

They based this request on their belief that national security faces a greater threat from armed citizens than from “foreign terrorists,” and they singled out the NRA as the bulwark preserving citizens’ right to keep and bear arms. They suggested, “The NRA should take its rightful place on the State Department list of terrorist organizations, because its influence is more of an immediate threat to the lives of our citizens than foreign terrorists.”

Does that mean that blacks, no matter where they are in the US, are also part of a “terrorist organization”?  That would only be fair.  Because this past weekend in Chicago:

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) – At least eight people have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday night.

Simultaneously, again in Chicago, as Texas Fred so cogently points out:

Nearly 75 people reportedly overdosed on dangerous narcotics, possibly heroin laced with painkiller fentanyl, in Chicago over a three-day span, according to city health and fire officials.

Just one city.  Just one weekend.  No mention of this by the American Media Maggots.  No mention of this by our Racist In Chief.  There is only one conclusion to draw.

Of course, this is insanity writ large for that Leftist Dogma media outlet to .  For one, the NRA would have to be “state sponsored” to qualify.

No mention is made that the children, teachers, and students shot in schools were shot in gun free zones by gunmen who knew their victims could not return fire. Moreover, no utterance given to the fact that the NRA was a leading voice in calling for a change in the gun free policies following the heinous attack on Sandy Hook–they wanted laws changed so teachers could quit begging for their lives and start keeping a gun close at hand with which to defend their lives and the lives of their students.

Why no consideration for the obvious immediate solution?  There is only one conclusion to draw.  If the school shootings stop, the best leverage Democrats and the American Media Maggots have to pass gun control vanishes.  Poof.

Second Amendment School SignTherefore, students and teachers cannot be allowed to defend themselves.  Let the bodies hit the floor.  Because the mental defectives are still out there.

Whites (except this past shooter who was of a mixed-race, white/black, from the UK — who CNN is portraying as white) involved in shootings need to be classified as terrorists.  Blacks involved in a continuing series of non-stop killings of blacks in large Demorat-controlled cities are not.  They’re not mentioned.  It’s as if the fact that Chicago is having its deadliest murder month in over a decade — well, that just doesn’t exist.  Yes.  59 murders of blacks by blacks in one month.

I do not see Mr Obama or any Leftist or Demorat pointing fingers at blacks for shooting blacks, children and infants.  I don’t see any mention of this at all.

Then there is the issue of mental defectives.

Unfortunately, Reagan brought the issue of shutting down the bulk of mental hospitals in California to the forefront; he began diverting funding. The trend continued because Leftists believed each “sanitarium” was a cesspool of horror. The bottom line is that when you remove these institutions, the mentally defective live on the streets, commit crimes, and stay with their parents or isolate themselves, often refusing to take medications or remaining entirely unprescribed.

And here’s the nasty fact no one wants to address: left to themselves, absent firearms, they would resort to vehicles to kill others, clubs, rocks, knives, machetes, crossbows, garrotes, acids and the like. Because they are mentally defective.

Many of these people are only treated in jails and prisons because they have already offended. As there was little available for them on the street. And trust me, mental treatment in jail is barely plugging a huge hole in the hull. The ship is still sinking.

Some of these people will never be “brought back.” Some of these people are not even remotely treatable. But because we, societally, have determined that we won’t warehouse those who really shouldn’t walk the streets, they walk the streets. They live with their parents, with family members who may be afraid of them themselves.

The firearm is just a TOOL. Remove that one TOOL from the toolbelt of the mentally unhinged and defective, they will find ANOTHER tool to replace it of equal or higher offense.

But the issue becomes the tool, not the organic human being.

There is only one conclusion to draw.

Leftists, Obama and Demorats wish to completely disarm the citizens of the United States of America.

So what’s the next step?

An Obama Executive Order.  Gun control by fiat.



Gay, black murderer owned gay porn sites

SS1 120On 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.

Bryce Williams Inventory of CarAdditionally, 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?

You know my answer.



What is this?

Bryce WilliamsFirst, the videos involved, from the TV perspective then the suspect’s perspective.

From the suspect:

Then the story.  Please click on the link to get up to speed.

That done, what is this?

Bryce Williams ManifestoIs 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?

Bryce Williams GRIEVANCESAmericans 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.

Oh, really?

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.


Thanks Rove, you bleeding idiot

Gun Owners Same TreatmentThere 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.

But no.

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.
