This week, after two teen thugs attacked an older man in Chicago, a video emerged that not only showed the two teens violently attacking and beating up the older man, but when the teens won’t back off, the man pulls a handgun and wards off the two thugs! As one would expect, the thugs who thought he would be an easy target, backed off and ran, rather than tangling with the man any more! Therefore, the man’s concealed carry likely saved his life!
CWB Chicago reported that…
The video, filmed from inside McDonald’s at 10 East Chicago, shows two males attacking a middle-aged man who appears to be a security guard. The man is slammed against the restaurant’s outside wall by the pair who punch and grapple the older man as he works to free himself.
Within moments, one of the two apparent attackers picks up an object that appears to be a pepper spray canister while the armed man continues to struggle with the other person.
Suddenly, the man with the canister runs away as the older man returns to camera view with a handgun pointed raised at shoulder height.
As the armed man stands near the restaurant property line, the object that one of the apparent attackers picked up off the ground rolls to his feet. The second youth, apparently suffering the effects of pepper spray, raises his shirt to wipe his face.
CWBChicago reported this morning that police had confirmed the arrests of 21 people on Saturday afternoon in the River North and Magnificent Mile neighborhoods during the first “mob” activity of 2019. The
The incident, like many self-defense incidents begs the question, why do left-wing Demcorats want to strip the Second Amendment from the United States Constitution, and how would it make American’s safer? Most incidents like this one go virtually unreported by the Mainstream Media, simply because it goes against the anti-gun lobby! Therefore, would taking guns away from American’s really stop incidents that the media report on so often? To answer that question, you have to dive further into the gun control debate.
In 2014 the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) released a revised report showing 92% of mass public shootings between January 2009 and July 2014 took place in gun-free zones. The statistics show that criminals are more likely to attack in area’s where they know that American’s cannot defend themselves. These statistics have only solidified in more recent years.
In addition, would repealing the 2nd Amendment truly be the answer to taking guns from criminals and ending mass murder? The answer once again would have to be no. Throughout America’s history, lawmakers have tried to control items and substances that are available to American’s but failed every time. Our government has fought to control and end narcotics trafficking, alcohol during prohibition and in the hands of minors, and handguns and illegal weapons. In each instance, our government only created a vacuum for the sale of illegal street drugs and drug cartel smuggling across the border, the rise of illegal alcohol sales, gave rise to the mafia’s power during prohibition, and black market gun sales by criminals. Therefore, repealing the 2’nd Amendment is truly not an answer to the debate. Also, if a mass murderer truly wants to kill a large number of people, they can create a bomb using easily accessible items like farming products or automobiles, and have a much higher death rate than a gun! In fact, terrorists have used vehicles as a weapon repeatedly, and it has been known to be more deadly than a gun, as it can wipe out larger numbers of civilians! Therefore, should we outlaw automobiles? Maybe that is fine with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her radical Green New Deal advocates, but most Americans depend on their cars and trucks for simple survival!
This gets us down to the root of the problem in America, and why gun violence and mass shootings have become more common. Radical Islamic Terrorists believe that they are soldiers, doing the will of Allah. Also, there is a growing segment of America who has abandoned God, as they have signed up to the Marxists philosophy that God is dead, and the Government is all one needs in life! Therefore, without religion, without the belief in God’s law, without the belief in heaven or hell as a reward or punishment, there can be no man-made law that would deter men and women who have made the decision to commit such atrocities and even end their own life in the process!
Combine that with the fact that banning guns only stops legal American citizens from carrying firearms, but it doesn’t stop criminals from obtaining firearms. In fact, the NRA’s America First Freedom exposed how…
when it comes to the illicit market for firearms, criminals will find increasingly creative ways to supply that market. Whether it’s smuggling in firearms from outside our borders, theft from government or military sources, or even making guns themselves, we can be assured of a steady supply to the underground and illegal trade.
The key component to reducing violence isn’t reducing the supply of firearms for legal gun owners, it’s about reducing the demand for firearms among violent actors. Between 1991 and 2014, the homicide rate in the United States plummeted by more than 50 percent, all while the number of legally owned firearms soared and millions of Americans became concealed-carry permit holders. Our greatest public safety success story had nothing to do with banning guns. It had much more to do with programs targeting violent offenders like Operation Exile and Project Safe Neighborhoods, along with outreach programs designed to get young individuals away from criminal gangs before their lives were destroyed. We can see that same sort of success again, but it won’t happen if lawmakers and law enforcers are focused on the tens of millions of Americans lawfully exercising their right to keep and bear arms.
In the end, our country has in recent years turned it’s back on one of the most important and stabilizing components of our Countries foundation. One that our Founding Father’s believed to be so important that they safeguarded it as one of the basic inalienable rights of the Constitution of the United States. The right to believe and worship God was what made our Country thrive and become a beacon of light to the rest of the world. It is a right that Communists despise throughout the world and unfortunately, now some within our own nation. The belief in God, threaten’s the core principles in any Progressive or Communist based government, and if American’s continue to turn their back on God, we will certainly see the rise of hate groups like ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, and other Left-Wing extremist groups. We will continue to see attacks on Christians, Conservative’s, and on the basic fabric of our Country, the Constitution of the United States of America. If we turn our back on God, we are turning our back on our country, and the future of ourselves and our children. In the end, if we turn our back on God, we will likely continue to see a rise in terrorist attacks and mass murders. In the end, without God, we will continue to see more massacres, terrorist acts, and shootings, as the murder rate will certainly skyrocket. Especially if we disarm the American people, and leave them with no way to protect themselves, their families, their friends, or their neighbors!
