This is the era of 24/7 media. It’s a constant challenge to keep up, especially since the major media is liberal and simply another arm of the Democrat Party.
But, as you may have noticed, people, both Democrats and Republicans, are talking and thinking about guns, gun control, and our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, which a few short years ago, our Supreme Court ruled was a right that applied to individuals, not some nebulous militia.
And as more and more states are passing right to carry legislation, and even concealed carry legislation seems to be gaining adherents, the stories about how people bearing guns have been repelling would-be burglars, armed robbers, and even your occasional rapist, have been getting more and more attention from the media, both print and electronic.
Regarding the occasional, unfortunately successful gun crimes, crimes which actually kill people who had no weapons to protect themselves, here are a few facts you should know:
In 1863, a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the
In 1881, a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the
United States, who later died from the wound.
In 1963, a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy,
President of the United States.
In 1975, a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President
of the United States.
In 1983, a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan.
In 1984, James Hubert a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.
In 1986, Patrick Sherrill a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 15 people
in an Oklahoma post office.
In 1990, James Pough a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 10 people at a
In 1991, George Hennard a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria.
In 1995, James Daniel Simpson a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 5
coworkers in a Texas laboratory.
In 1999, Larry Asbrook a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 8 people at a
In 2001, a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a
failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.
In 2003, Douglas Williams a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people
at a Lockheed Martin plant.
In 2007, a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho shot and killed 32
people in Virginia Tech.
In 2010, a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner shot
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.
In 2011, a registered Democrat named James Holmes went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.
In 2012, Andrew Engeldinger a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.
In 2013, a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people, kids and teachers, in a gun-free school in Connecticut.
One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not. Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns. No NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservatives were involved in any of these shootings.
Of course, the facts cited here do not explain why so many Democrats seem to fear guns so much that they are adamantly opposed to our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. But maybe, just maybe it’s a partial explanation. Another explanation? Many Democrats, being the liberals that they are, lack the moral fiber and sense of personal responsibility to be trusted with ownership of a gun.
Solution to the problem? Maybe it should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.
