We are in gun crisis now.


It is nice that you are so passionate about this issue. Don't let your passion rule your emotions and don't let your emotions rule your passion. You should leave yourself some wiggle room to consider that yours is not necessarily the only rational position, nor is it necessarily the only correct solution.

Why do you say we are in a gun crisis? The murder rate by guns has steadily decreased for several decades until the Soros-supported DAs failed to apply the laws fairly or prosecute B*M protestors resulting in Millions of damages and dozens of lost lives. Most of the hoopla is the result of the media's narrative instead of objective reporting.

I haven't convinced you and you haven't convinced me to change my views so we will have to agree to disagree. Good night!

Take the guns from the criminals who use them-not from the law-abiding citizens who have never committed crimes nor threatened anyone with a gun. Criminals should be locked up.

NOT GOOD: Virginia Dems pushing through soft-on-crime bill to provide leniency to hundreds of first degree murderers and rapists
FEB. 22, 2024 3:29 PM BY THE RIGHT SCOOP

Sharing is caring!
Virginia Democrats are pushing through a soft-on-crime bill that would provide leniency to hundreds of first degree murderers and rapists, among others.

The bill has already passed the state Senate by a 2-v**e margin and the state House is weighing it now. Democrats control both houses.

Here’s a video showing them break down who is eligible for this bill:

“Virginia Democrats are trying to push through a soft-on-crime bill that would provide leniency to 701 first degree murderers, 77 second degree murderers, 556 abductors, 325 rapists, and 762 robbers.”

— Conservative War Machine (@WarMachineRR) February 22, 2024

The RNC’s Matt Whitlock says this bill “is a huge deal – This bill would make Virginia like the soft-on-crime hell-hole DC has become.”

Here’s a summary of the bill itself:

Petition for modification of a sentence; eligibility; procedures. Provides procedures for individuals serving a sentence for certain felony convictions or a combination of such convictions who remain incarcerated in a state or local correctional facility or secure facility and meet certain criteria to petition the circuit court that entered the original judgment or order to

(i) suspend the unserved portion of such sentence or run the unserved portion of such sentence concurrently with another sentence,

(ii) place such person on probation for such time as the court shall determine, or

(iii) otherwise modify the sentence imposed.

Depending on the type of conviction, the bill allows the court to grant a hearing on such petition after an individual has served at least 25 years for certain offenses, after 20 years for certain other offenses, and after 15 years for any other felony conviction not specified. The bill does not allow an individual convicted of a Class 1 felony to petition for modification of his sentence. The bill requires the attorney for the Commonwealth and the victim to agree to hearing the petition in order for a court to conduct the hearing.

Now I can’t imagine that Governor Glenn Youngkin is going to sign this bill, which means it’s probably dead considering the slim Democrat margins in both houses. But it does indicate, especially in an e******n year, just how far Democrats will go to get v**es.

Youngkin also rescinded a policy last year giving felons back their right to v**e.

Do you think that the Government has you best interests in mind when they allow several MILLION foreign invaders into our country, people that are unvetted criminally, medically, or politically? Several American citizens have been murdered, robbed, raped. There was a medical student just this last week k**led down in Georgia by an alien.

What 'not' to say to a legal gun owner

Conversations around gun ownership in the United States can be as volatile as a powder keg, and it's easy to light the fuse with a single misguided comment. If you aim for a respectful dialogue instead of a verbal shootout, here's a list of phrases best avoided. Loaded with insights, this guide may just prevent your next discussion on gun rights from going off half-cocked.

1. 'Why do you need a gun?'

Imagine asking someone, "Why do you need freedom of speech?" Owning a gun in the United States is a constitutional right, not a "need." People have various reasons for owning firearms, from self-defense to hunting and sport shooting. Questioning the "need" implies you know better than they do when it comes to their personal choices or safety concerns. A tad condescending, don't you think?

2. 'You must be paranoid.'

Paranoia? Really? Owning a gun doesn't mean someone is donning a tinfoil hat and waiting for the sky to fall. For many, it's about personal safety, the safety of loved ones, or even the enjoyment of shooting as a sport. Labeling someone as paranoid for exercising a constitutional right is a bit of a stretch.

3. 'Guns are the problem.'

Ah, the reductionist argument that blames an inanimate object for the complexities of human behavior and societal issues. Gun violence is a serious matter but boiling it down to "guns are the problem" ignores the multifaceted factors like mental health, socio-economic conditions, and more. It's not as black and white as some would like to believe.

4. 'Gun-free zones work.'

Cute idea, except for the pesky detail that many public shootings occur in designated gun-free zones. The concept ignores the fact that those bent on doing harm are not likely to be deterred by a sign on the door.

5. 'The Second Amendment is outdated.'

The notion that any part of the Constitution is "outdated" opens a can of worms. Are other rights outdated too? The Second Amendment exists for multiple reasons, and its modern applicability is still a topic of fervent debate. Dismissing it as "outdated" is dismissive of that ongoing conversation.

6. 'You're compensating for something.'

Oh, the classic Freudian jab. This cliché suggests that owning a gun is a form of overcompensation for personal inadequacies. It's a cheap shot (pun intended) that does nothing to further a constructive conversation about gun ownership or gun control.

7. 'You must be a Republican.'

Ah, yes, because only Republicans appreciate constitutional rights? Gun ownership exists across the political spectrum, and assuming otherwise only serves to perpetuate divisions and stereotypes.

8. 'Only the police should have guns.'

Entrusting an entire society's safety solely to the police assumes an infallibility that no institution possesses. It also ignores the importance some place on personal freedom and self-defense.

9. 'It's too easy to get a gun.'

Before making this sweeping statement, perhaps consider the background checks, waiting periods, and federal and state laws that exist. "Easy" is a relative term and assumes that current laws aren't stringent or effective.

10. 'Assault weapon bans work.'

Defining "assault weapon" is notoriously tricky, and evidence on the effectiveness of bans is mixed. Saying they "work" is a one-size-fits-all statement that ignores the complexities of the issue.

11. 'Only criminals have guns.'

If this were true, we'd have a country full of criminals. Millions of law-abiding Americans own guns for a variety of legitimate purposes. Conflating legal gun ownership with criminal activity is not just inaccurate; it's disrespectful to a large part of the population.

12. 'You shouldn't have a gun if you have kids.'

This one assumes that gun owners are inherently irresponsible when it comes to storage and safety. Many gun owners who are parents take extra precautions to ensure their firearms are stored safely, away from their children. Just like you'd childproof your home for other hazards, the same goes for firearms.

13. 'You must be a gun nut.'

For some reason, an interest in firearms gets stigmatized as an obsession or a sign of paranoia. Let's remember that owning a gun doesn't necessarily make someone a "gun nut" any more than owning a car makes someone a "car nut." People own guns for various reasons: sport, hunting, and self-defense, among others. Labeling someone as a "gun nut" simply for owning a gun is a dismissive way to avoid more nuanced conversations about individual rights and responsibilities.

14. 'Guns k**l people.'

This is the "IT argument" that gets rolled out in every gun debate. While it's true that firearms can be used to harm others, placing the blame solely on the inanimate object oversimplifies a complex issue. Most legal gun owners would point out that a gun, like a car or a knife, is a tool; it requires a human to operate it. They argue that the focus should be on responsible ownership and usage, rather than demonizing the object itself. This phrase can shut down meaningful dialogue about issues like gun safety, mental health, and responsible ownership.

15. 'You're part of the problem.'

The ol' blame game—a classic! By declaring a legal gun owner as "part of the problem," you're not just tossing a Molotov cocktail into a nuanced debate; you're also casually ignoring the fact that many gun owners are fervent advocates for responsible gun use and safety measures. Way to lump everyone together! This kind of accusatory tone isn't just an over-simplification; it's a conversation ender. If the goal is to alienate someone rather than discuss the complexities of gun ownership and societal issues, then bravo, mission accomplished!

Actually you are wrong. According to the latest data car deaths are the #1 cause of death in children. As for Soros, he should have been tried at Nuremberg for war crimes after WWII. He has made his billions by destroying national currencies. He wants nothing more than to destroy America in our current form. "Leave the old man in peace" no, he should be deported to his home country where he would be put to death. They want him. As for taking away guns, that's a quick way to start a civil war. I'm a combat veteran and I can tell you k*****g someone is really hard and I certainly don't want to do that in my own country. But come and try to take my guns and we are going to be at war. Some of my guns are family heir looms that have come down through the family. Those you will not get!
In Australia they were forced to give up all of their guns and watch them be destroyed. Many family heir looms. Many guys there wrote letters to the U.S. telling us not to let them disarm us. And by the way they still have gun violence and gun crime.

Okay TJKMO, you seem to be a self appointed expert, how do you stop criminals from stealing guns? And don't even start with confiscate them all.
And when you say that only the police and military should have guns what do you say to the people that want to defund the police? Are we all going to hug and sing cumbya? All criminals will lose the desire to commit crimes?
You need to take a real sniff of reality.

George Soros’s Prosecutors Wage War on Law and Order
Once these candidates get elected, they quickly...engage in prosecutorial nullification by refusing to prosecute entire categories of crimes.
Crime has exploded under Krasner’s pro-criminal policies. Murders are up 63%. Shootings are up 78%.
The rogue prosecutor movement is dangerous, well-funded, and systematically destroying America’s communities.
On May 16, Matt Dugan, the chief public defender for Allegheny County unseated the incumbent district attorney, Stephen A. Zappala, Jr., in the Democratic primary. The Pennsylvania Justice and Public Safety PAC, funded by billionaire George Soros, contributed an overwhelming sum of money to Dugan’s campaign.

Dugan promises to use his discretion in choosing which charges to file, divert "low-level, nonviolent cases out of the criminal justice system" rarely ask for bail, give lenient plea offers, and concentrate on violent crimes.

If these campaign promises sound familiar, that’s because it’s the standard boilerplate recited by Soros-financed candidates for district attorney.

But once these candidates get elected, they quickly turn their anodyne statements into something different and engage in prosecutorial nullification by refusing to prosecute entire categories of crimes, watering down felonies, refusing to ask for bail, and refusing to prosecute violent juveniles as adults. Of course, violent crime rates often explode in their cities.

George Gascon of Los Angeles, Chesa Boudin of San Francisco, Kim Foxx of Chicago, Kim Gardner of St. Louis, Rachael Rollins of Boston, and Marilyn Mosby of Baltimore all made the same or similar campaign promises, and each turned out to be a disaster once they were elected district attorney.

Boudin was recalled, and Gardner and Rollins recently resigned in disgrace. Mosby lost her primary e******n and is being prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department. Foxx bowed out of running for re-e******n due to political pressure, and Gascon has barely survived two recall attempts.

With the exception of Gascon (who couldn’t because of civil service protections for his deputies), all of these DAs either fired career prosecutors once they assumed office or created such a toxic, anti-prosecutorial atmosphere in the office that law-and-order prosecutors left in droves.

Worse yet, there are eerie parallels between Dugan in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia’s Soros-funded district attorney Larry Krasner.

Before he was elected in 2017, Krasner was a career criminal defense attorney who sued the Philadelphia Police Department repeatedly. In his first run for District Attorney, Krasner received $1.7 million from Soros-funded groups—90% of his campaign cash. For his 2021 re-e******n campaign, Krasner received a combined $1,259,000 from Soros-funded groups.

For his part, Dugan has been a public defender his entire career and was appointed chief public defender in 2020. To date, Dugan has received $734,000 from a Soros-funded PAC, representing 90% of his fundraising.

Crime has exploded under Krasner’s pro-criminal policies. Murders are up 63%. Shootings are up 78%.
At the end of 2021, when confronted with the spike in murders and shootings (among other crimes), Krasner said, "We don’t have a crisis of lawlessness, we don’t have a crisis of crime, we don’t have a crisis of violence."

Michael Nutter, the former mayor of Philadelphia, called Krasner’s comments, "Some of the worst, most ignorant, and most insulting comments I have ever heard spoken by an elected official." Writing in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Nutter said that Krasner owes an apology to the 521 families of Philadelphia’s homicide victims.

Krasner fired 31 career homicide and violent crime prosecutors immediately upon taking office. He replaced them with public defenders and defense-oriented criminal attorneys and ordered them to decline to prosecute most drug cases, charge lower gradations of crimes, offer sweetheart plea deals, require shorter probation and parole periods, and more. Sound familiar?

The rogue prosecutor movement is dangerous, well-funded, and systematically destroying America’s communities. When these progressive zealots take office, everyone loses, except the criminals.

Enforcing the criminal laws of the state is a sober responsibility. A District Attorney should be dev**ed to upholding the rule of law. The people of Pittsburgh must now decide who they want in that position.

George Gascon of Los Angeles, Chesa Boudin of San Francisco, Kim Foxx of Chicago, Kim Gardner of St. Louis, Rachael Rollins of Boston, and Marilyn Mosby of Baltimore all made the same or similar campaign promises, and each turned out to be a disaster once they were elected district attorney.

Boudin was recalled, and Gardner and Rollins recently resigned in disgrace. Mosby lost her primary e******n and is being prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department. Foxx bowed out of running for re-e******n due to political pressure, and Gascon has barely survived two recall attempts.

With the exception of Gascon (who couldn’t because of civil service protections for his deputies), all of these DAs either fired career prosecutors once they assumed office or created such a toxic, anti-prosecutorial atmosphere in the office that law-and-order prosecutors left in droves.

Worse yet, there are eerie parallels between Dugan in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia’s Soros-funded district attorney Larry Krasner.

Before he was elected in 2017, Krasner was a career criminal defense attorney who sued the Philadelphia Police Department repeatedly. In his first run for District Attorney, Krasner received $1.7 million from Soros-funded groups—90% of his campaign cash. For his 2021 re-e******n campaign, Krasner received a combined $1,259,000 from Soros-funded groups.

For his part, Dugan has been a public defender his entire career and was appointed chief public defender in 2020. To date, Dugan has received $734,000 from a Soros-funded PAC, representing 90% of his fundraising.

Crime has exploded under Krasner’s pro-criminal policies. Murders are up 63%. Shootings are up 78%.
At the end of 2021, when confronted with the spike in murders and shootings (among other crimes), Krasner said, "We don’t have a crisis of lawlessness, we don’t have a crisis of crime, we don’t have a crisis of violence."

Michael Nutter, the former mayor of Philadelphia, called Krasner’s comments, "Some of the worst, most ignorant, and most insulting comments I have ever heard spoken by an elected official." Writing in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Nutter said that Krasner owes an apology to the 521 families of Philadelphia’s homicide victims.

Krasner fired 31 career homicide and violent crime prosecutors immediately upon taking office. He replaced them with public defenders and defense-oriented criminal attorneys and ordered them to decline to prosecute most drug cases, charge lower gradations of crimes, offer sweetheart plea deals, require shorter probation and parole periods, and more. Sound familiar?

The rogue prosecutor movement is dangerous, well-funded, and systematically destroying America’s communities. When these progressive zealots take office, everyone loses, except the criminals.

Enforcing the criminal laws of the state is a sober responsibility. A District Attorney should be dev**ed to upholding the rule of law. The people of Pittsburgh must now decide who they want in that position.
