Texas half-wit embarrassment BEETO O'Rourke makes his predictably opportunistic political point after the church service murders in White Settlement yesterday.

So saddened to hear about another church shooting in Texas, this one in White Settlement near Fort Worth. Clearly what we are doing in Texas, what we are doing in this country, when it comes to guns is not working.

Katie Pavlich response was perfect -

The shooter was stopped within three seconds, preventing further carnage, by a law abiding citizen carrying a firearm. He is a hero. You are a moron.

Two church members were killed before several armed congregants charged the shooter, and reports indicate that at least two of the church members were responsible for firing the shots that killed the shooter.

Texas DPS Director Jeoff Williams took it a step further, saying that the congregants who charged the shooter had saved everyone else in that building. “The citizens who were inside that church undoubtedly saved 242 other parishioners, and that might get swept aside,” he said. “It was miraculous. The true heroes in all this are the people who were sitting in those pews today and responded, the immediate responders … it was truly heroic.”

This is the main hero who stopped the church shooter. He's head of the volunteer security team at the church.
Ya'think he can win this election he's campaigning for?

I just want to thank all who have sent their prayers and comments on the events of today. The events at West Freeway Church of Christ put me in a position that I would hope no one would have to be in, but evil exists and I had to take out an active shooter in church.
I’m thankful to GOD that I have been blessed with the ability and desire to serve him in the role of head of security at the church. I am very sad in the loss of two dear friends and brothers in CHRIST, but evil does exist in this world and I and other members are not going to allow evil to succeed. Please pray for all the members and their families in this time. Thank you for your prayers and understanding.

Please tell me that whole memo is a joke....
After reading it:
Provides leadership and takes responsibility for incorporating gender perspectives and ensuring the equal participation of women and men in all areas of work.
The United Nations Secretariat is committed to achieving 50/50 gender balance in its staff. Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for this position. Extension of the appointment is subject to extension of the mandate and/or the availability of the funds.
I'd say it's true.

I'd say that goes a long way in explaining those UN APC's and other vehicles stored on US soil. I thought it at least appropriate in declaring NYC a hardship post. Got to send a copy of this to my Rep. who is a Reserve Marine. I also wonder if Trump is aware of this. Maybe we need to send copies all over everywhere and see what happens. Start with Tucker and Hannity.

Sure am glad that I am a law abiding citizen that has never touched one of those gun things.... Crap is getting deep here. The Governor encourages Sanctuary Cities, but only if it leads to m ass undocumented immigration. So, ignore and stop support for ICE, but 250K$ for a mass "legal gun" grab.....

However, he is opposed to sanctuary cities if they support and defend the Constitution....


Virginia governor vetoes law prohibiting sanctuary jurisdictions (2019)
On March 19, 2019, Gov. Ralph Northam (D) vetoed Senate Bill 1156, which would have prohibited sanctuary cities. A bill summary described the legislation as providing "that no locality shall adopt any ordinance, procedure, or policy intended to restrict the enforcement of federal immigration laws."[76]
Northam said the bill "imposes an unnecessary and divisive requirement upon localities regarding the enforcement of federal immigration laws."[77]
Bill sponsor Sen. Dick Black (R-District 13) disagreed, saying Northam mischaracterized the bill. "It just says localities must not adopt policies that interfere with federal enforcement. I think he was struggling to put words down, while encouraging sanctuary cities to pop up in Virginia," he said.[78]
Northam vetoed a similar measure in 2018. Click here for more information.

"If we have constitutional laws on the books and law enforcement officers are not enforcing those laws on the books then there are going to be some consequences but I'll cross that bridge if and when we get to it," Northam said while speaking at Virginia Beach Wednesday, Dec. 11.


The so-called Second Amendment sanctuary city movement started after the November election and has included gun advocates from the state’s more rural and conservative pockets. They’ve taken to their local government bodies to demand protection from any new gun laws the Democratic-controlled Legislature is likely to pass.

In the bill, $250,000 is appropriated to assist with enforcement of Northam’s gun control measures.
According to the bill, the money is appropriated for the “estimated net increase in the operating cost of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment of sentencing legislation as listed below.”
It appropriates $50,000 for enforcement of each of five areas:
  • Allow the removal of firearms from persons who pose substantial risk to them or others- $50,000
  • Prohibit the sale, possession, transport of assault firearms, trigger activators and silencers- $50,000
  • Increase the penalty for allowing a child to access unsecured firearms – $50,000
  • Prohibit possession of firearms for persons subject to final orders of protection- $50,000
  • Require background checks for all firearms sales- $50,000
In other words, “we know people are not going to comply, so we are going to lock them up.”
Clearly the anti-gun Democrats in the Virginia legislature, as well as Northam are anticipating that gun owners in Virginia will find themselves being incarcerated for failing to comply with Virginia’s unconstitutional gun confiscation scheme.
The laws that have already been passed, along with those which have been introduced for the next legislative session in Virginia would ban commonly owned semi-automatic firearms, such as the AR-15.
Further, the ban would extend to common firearms parts, and would NOT grandfather current owners. So, if you live in Virginia and own an AR-15, once the legislation is signed by Northam, you would be required to surrender the weapon, or face arrest and incarceration.
Law-abiding gun owners who are found in possession of an “assault firearm” could be convicted of a Class 6 felony, which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison.
The laws also contain (probably intentionally) vague language, adding words such as “any characteristic of like kind.” These words appear after each list of prohibited features throughout the law, which adds ambiguous language subject to interpretation by either law enforcement or judicial officials. Do not think for a minute that this is not done on purpose.
Further, the legislations says, “’Assault firearm’ includes any part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert, modify, or otherwise alter a firearm into an assault firearm, or any combination of parts that may be readily assembled into an assault firearm.”
“Part or combination of parts.” Basically any “part” that could be used to “potentially” convert a semi-automatic firearm into an “assault” firearm under the statute would in and of itself be considered as an “assault firearm” and subject to arrest and conviction as a Class 6 felony.
Can you say slippery slope?
One can imagine that laws such as this one in Virginia are the first step in a march toward total gun confiscation. “Let’s get the scary looking guns off the street, then we can go after the rest.”
Gun laws such as the ones proposed in Virginia are nothing but feel-good claptrap.
Statistics show that long guns are rarely used in violent crime. According to the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting, in 2018 there were five times as many individuals listed as killed with “knives or cutting instruments” than with rifles of any kind. Rifles were also used less than “blunt objects (clubs, hammers, etc.)” or “personal weapons (hands, fists, feet, etc.).”
Another provision is the implementation of “universal background checks.”
UBC’s do NOT stop criminals from stealing firearms, and to believe otherwise is foolish.
According to the US Department of Justice, 75% of criminals who possessed a firearm during their crime and who ended up incarcerated had acquired the firearm through theft, off the street, or from a family member or friend. Less than 1% got the firearms from dealers or non-dealers at gun shows.
So, Northam and the Virginia legislature, without even trying to hide what they’re doing, have allocated additional money in the budget for the purposes of enforcing their unconstitutional gun grab.

$250,000 will only pay for one person to be incarcerated for 5 years, the governor doesn't have and never will have a budget big enough to lock up every gun owner who doesn't comply. He should be removed from office, he can learn to code,or , better yet , throw him into the deepest coal mine.... without a flashlight.

This is a big deal, this is 98% a state, full of US citizens, with full set of rights.

I think the summary is, ownership permit and carry licenses, in one, shall issue, nominal bureaucracy fees.
And reciprocity.
