2017 Year In Review Part Two – Illegal Immigration

There are few issues as “hot button” as immigration. As a first generation American I understand that because immigration to me is incredibly important. The way it is portrayed in today’s insanely biased so called main stream media, there are only two sides to the immigration debate, the loving, tolerant and understanding open borders supporters and the evil, hateful wall builders. These are of course caricatures but caricatures are simple to explain and easy to understand, thus they are used.

When most people think of immigration it tends to be in one of two ways. The first view, heavily pushed by the media and indoctrinated in the public school system, is that of the hard working, play by the rules (except for the whole illegal entry thing which is dutifully ignored), family oriented, taxpaying immigrant seeking only a better life for him his kind, cookie baking wife and ever tolerant, understanding and racially profiled kids. The second view of immigration, no less forced, is that of a criminal underclass seeking the complete overthrow of our government. The truth, as always, lies somewhere in between.

Historically speaking, legal immigration has been a good thing for America. It was certainly a good thing for me and I am truly grateful for the opportunities being born in America has afforded me. That being said I have to point out a few realities about immigration that the “open borders” people either don’t know or refuse to concede to.

First, no one has the “right” to immigrate here.

Second, Constitutional rights only apply to American citizens.

Third, the fact that you were able to break into America does not entitle you to anything.

Fourth, there is no such thing as an “anchor” baby.

Fifth, your entire family, out to 27 generations, is not entitled to follow you here.

Sixth, America has not just the right but the duty to determine who gets to immigrate here.

Seventh, none of the above is intolerant or hateful.

A final point. Illegal immigration involves so much more than the media will tell you about. There are considerations far beyond simply how many and from where the people we let into America come from.

Using the last few of years as a reference point lets contemplate some obvious and not so obvious consequences of unchecked illegal immigration.

We begin with crime.

In 1980 federal and state prisons housed fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens. The number today hovers around 55,000, accounting for more than twenty-five percent of all prisoners in federal prisons. There are an additional approximately 297,000 criminal aliens incarcerated in state and local prisons.

2017
Consider these shocking numbers from just couple of years ago. In Florida illegal aliens account for 40% of all murder convictions, in New York 34% and in Arizona, a state brutalized by the Kenyans administration and his media minions for simply seeking to enforce federal immigration law, 17.8%.

Put another way, during that time frame illegal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in Arizona, California, Florida, New York and Texas combined. In body count numbers that’s 7,085 victims of illegal immigration. Put yet another way, that’s 7,085 people who did not have to die. As an aside, the illegal alien population in those states is only 5.6% (US Census data) of the states population. Little has changed over the last couple of years.

It’s not much better in other states. You simply do not know about these kinds of things because the media has engaged in a complete and total black out of the term illegal alien when reporting on crime.

The long going determination by the left to hide the astounding levels of criminality by illegal aliens extends even to state and local governments. In 2006, Colorado a state rapidly sinking into liberal lunacy, passed a law requiring the state Attorney General to determine the costs of incarcerating illegal aliens and bill the federal government for reimbursement. The cost via the number of incarcerated illegal aliens was so high that the state AG only sent the government a bill for half the real cost. Torn between trying to be semi fiscally responsible and sheltering the narrative about illegal immigration, the state decided to protect the criminals. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over don’t it?

Next, lets consider Money.

According to Mexico’s Central Bank (Banxico), 2017 was a record-breaking year for receiving remittances by Mexicans abroad. In the first eleven months of 2017, Mexicans sent home $26,167,00,000. This follows another record setting year in 2016 when $24.1 billion left the American economy. To put this in context, Mexico’s second largest source of income in 2017 was the export of oil for $18.5 billion. While it is tragic that Mexicans send so much money home to fund a corrupt, abusive and failing government, the thing that should concern Americans the most is the fact that these dollars can not be used to help our own citizens or grow our own economy. As the pervert Clinton would likely have said, “How many poor children could $26 billion feed?”

To rub some salt into the wound consider that taxpayers at the federal, state and local levels payed out nearly $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by 12.5 million illegal aliens and roughly 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. In round figures approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member. The math leads to a total of around $115,894,597,664. In 2013 the total was $113 billion. You shouldn’t have to be a noble laureate in math to realize this is an unsustainable upwards trajectory. (Cloward Piven anyone?)

To those who would say, but sailor, they pay more in taxes than that. I would ask you to simply learn the truth or stop lying. Here are the numbers. Illegal aliens payed in federally $22,191,097,700. Subtract what they received just in tax credits alone $6,743,200,000 and that leaves a balance of $15,447,897,700. Well, at least they are paying something, right? Wrong, unless you’re using common core math. The combined total of state and local government general expenditures on illegal aliens is estimated at $18,571,428,571 billion. So much for that argument.

What you don’t know about Healthcare.

Incredibly, thanks to yet another main stream media blackout, no one even knows about the healthcare disasters being forced on America to satisfy some demented idea of “tolerance.”

An example of what we could be looking at was recently provided by Germany. The Germans equivalent of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is The Robert Koch Institute (RKI). RKI is responsible for monitoring infectious diseases and managing outbreaks. RKI is reporting significant increases in communicable diseases across Germany. Its annual report on “Infectious Disease Epidemiology in Germany states, “the institute concluded that recent increases in dengue fever, Hantavirus, hemorrhagic fever, malaria, tuberculosis and other communicable diseases are directly attributable to the migrant stream currently pouring into Germany.”

These infections, rare in Europe for decades, pose a significant threat to the general health and welfare of native Germans. While Germany has a first class healthcare system that should be able to successfully handle the outbreak of a single disease, even a serious one, the sheer number of refugees and the diversity of infectious diseases they appear to be spreading is straining the German public health infrastructure to its limits.

The U.S. experienced a mass migration event similar to the German refugee crisis under the Obama administration. The arrival of massive numbers of illegal aliens was accompanied by significant increases in Dengue Fever, Tuberculosis and Swine Flu. Fortunately these outbreaks were quickly brought under control. In 2014, a wave of unaccompanied alien children appear to have been the source of the deadly outbreak of the EV-D68 Enterovirus that quickly began spread throughout the western states. Feeling all warm and fuzzy yet? Better get checked out.

Consider some recent health statistics in light of what you have now learned.

Between 2010 and 2014 the Minnesota Department of Health reported two hundred and ninety-six refugees were diagnosed with active tuberculosis. It is illustrative to point out that seventy-one of those cases were diagnosed within one year of their arrival while the remaining 225 were diagnosed in the following year. The number of active TB cases reported among refugees showing up in Minnesota is ten times higher than reported in any of the fourteen other states that have released refugee TB data to the public. See a pattern?

Costing an average of $17,000 for each case of successfully treated active TB Minnesota taxpayers coughed up roughly $5 million to treat the 296 cases of active TB diagnosed among refugees between 2010 and 2014. It broke down this way. $3 million for the 161 Somali refugees diagnosed with active TB, and an additional $2 million to treat the 132 refugees diagnosed with active TB who were not born in Somalia.

Sadly Minnesota is not alone. Between 2014 and 2015 the following states reported these numbers.

Wisconsin, 27, Nebraska & Louisiana, 21, Michigan, 19, Vermont, 17, Colorado, 16, Florida & Ohio 11, Kentucky, 9, Idaho, 7, Indiana & N. Dakota, 4 and California, 3.

As the numbers of infections and diseases continue to grow more and more politically correct state and federal administration types are contributing to the media blackout by making these kinds of numbers more and more difficult to obtain.

Corruption and the abandonment of reason.

Then there is the culture of corruption fostered by those SJW’s whose sole mission is the fundamental transformation of America.

A stunning video, released by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, shows an operative going undercover to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and being told that if you’re from Syria and used a faked passport to get into the United States, you can still get immigration services.

AFDI operative Laura Loomer went to a USCIS office “and told an official that she had met a family of illegal immigrants from Syria and wanted to make sure they got immigration services.”

She informed the official the family was afraid to come into the office because, “they don’t have documents because they came here illegally” using fake passports.

In the video the USCIS official didn’t even hesitate. There are cases, he said, “we waive sometimes the passport, because they are unable to provide that documentation.” The official continued, the real name really didn’t matter either, “We are going to use the name on the passport as AKA, ‘also known as.’”

The video further explained that the government employee was simply, “explaining the law as it stands.” In other words, any terrorist or career criminal can walk freely into America with the unwavering support of liberal social justice warriors in government and congress.

It gets even worse. The IRS Inspector Generals Office reported that the tax-collection agency knows that more than one million illegal immigrants have used stolen Social Security numbers of citizens to file fraudulent tax returns, collecting billions of dollars in fraudulent refunds. Irritatingly, the IRS makes no serious effort to get those stolen dollars back. Not only that but the IRS has done virtually nothing to stop the practice. It hasn’t even notified a meaningful percentage of those Americans victimized by identity fraud that they have been victimized. The IRS has known this issue for at least the last five years. A half-hearted test program designed to attack the problem was quietly scrapped because it had virtually no effect.

According to Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., there’s really only one explanation for this, the IRS ignoring this problem. Brat believes the government ignoring one of its fundamental responsibilities. He explained,

Koskinen was in front of us, and I asked him, ‘If you know that you have illegal aliens and they’re asking for tax refunds or asking for any tax status, would you do anything about it?’ He said no. I was stunned,” Brat said. Koskinen made the same assertion in his Senate testimony. “When he says it’s not my job to report illegal, much less unethical behavior, we’ve got a problem,” Brat added.

Part of that problem is that Koskinen, and liberals like him, are not yet doing ten to twenty at the nearest federal penitentiary.

Finally, the lie of DACA.

Lets be honest, DACA is a blatantly unconstitutional, temporary amnesty program. It’s sole function is to reward underachievers and criminals. If a few good people slip through the cracks so be it.

The vast majority of DACA recipients are not in fact children, averaging between 25-30 years of age who are fully conversant with both the language and culture of their home country.

Neither are they diligent college students. DACA recipients college graduation rates are below the national average. This is despite being given in state tuition rates in far to many states and preference over American citizens in many other areas.

Nor are they service oriented. Less that 1% of DACA recipients serve in America’s military.

Sadly, for many DACA recipients their idea of self sufficiency is to attach themselves to the welfare system then complain about how little they are getting.

Most egregious of all is that virtually anyone can claim DACA status. Successful applicants can have up to three misdemeanors. These can range from graffiti-spraying to drunk driving to wife-beating to gun violations. In other words things that would land you or me in jail are ignored so illegal aliens can access your wallet through federal, state and local programs.

Now don’t that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy all over? Don’t you just feel all social justice warrior like knowing how badly you and your country are being beaten up to make some spoiled, ill educated liberals feel good about themselves?

As the pervert Clinton is alleged to have said once, “better put some ice on that.”

2017 The Year in Review Part 1: Democrats And Blood In The Streets

I believe that in a very short time we will look back at 2017 and understand it to be the extremely pivotal year that, in ways that many may have not noticed, it really was.

One of the most tragic and destructive legacies of the Kenyans reign over America has been the institutionalization and normalization of lawlessness at nearly every level of society. From the Nation of Islam to The New Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter and even Antifa, liberals have actively and openly stoked the flames of racial hatred and division and, with the exception of the election of Trump, suffered not the slightest consequence of importance. Under the Kenyans tutelage even thoughts were deemed criminal if they did not comport to the supreme leaders ideology.

It has become blindingly obvious to anyone willing to look that the DOJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, INS and a host of other federal agencies have been turned against conservative Americans. One can only hope that Trump is able to restore a sense of law and order to a deeply weaponized American government.

Among many things that became clearly apparent in 2017 was the absolute bloody history of the democratic party. After some fifty years spent successfully hiding their Jim Crow legacy behind the bodies of its victims, the carnage wrought by the policies of the party of the “little guy” are becoming to massive to conceal any longer. Only the most mind numbed liberal can be satisfied that Kate Stienlie’s killer got off with time served, that the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that it is fine for black males to run from cops, that the “knock out” game was so very carefully ignored by everyone but it’s victims or that the Portland, Oregon Police Department has decided to stop identifying gang members and purge the gang member database it has developed over the last two decades to appear non racist. Similar symptoms of liberal idiocy, are appearing throughout America and are praised by liberals as good and decent things. Make no mistake, liberals will continue to deny the painfully obvious and the media will maintain its news blackout of the carnage even as the number of bodies and victims is beginning to reach a critical mass that even they can no longer conceal.

In 2016, the latest figures I was able to find, the FBI reported there were 1.2 million violent crimes committed in America. This represents a 4.1% increase over 2015. It is the second year in a row violent crimes have risen. To put some perspective on this the current crime level represents 386 violent crimes for every 1000 people.

The good news, if you can call it that, is that much of the continuing spike in violent crime comes from a relatively few and, almost exclusively democrat led and managed, cities. In order, here are the top ten offenders.

Detroit, Michigan: 2,047 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 303 murders.
St. Louis, Missouri: 1,913 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 188 murders.
Memphis, Tennessee: 1,820 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 196 murders.
Baltimore, Maryland: 1,780 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 318 murders.
Rockford, Illinois: 1,659 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 26 murders.
Kansas City, Missouri: 1,655 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 129 murders.
Cleveland, Ohio: 1,631 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 135 murders.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin: 1,533 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 141 murders.
Little Rock, Arkansas: 1,531 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 42 murders.
Oakland, California: 1,426 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 85 murders.

I bet you were surprised that Chicago wasn’t on the list. I wouldn’t take much comfort from that fact. In 2015, Chicago reported 478 homicides, leading all other American cities. In Chicago this year people are still getting shot in insanely high numbers. By the middle of October, 2017, 1,000 more people were shot than at the same time last year. Of the 3,500 shooting victims this year so far nearly 600 died. In Chicago the murder rate tends to be concentrated in a few areas. Two neighborhoods, Burnside and Fuller Park, have homicide rates of more than 100 per 100,000 residents. Similarly, 45 percent of shootings in St. Louis this year have been clustered in just eight neighborhoods. New Orleans reports a similar finding.

Consider these trends as an ancillary to the Ferguson Effect and another of the Kenyan’s legacies, the war on cops. In many large cities cops are now extremely hesitant, and not without good reason, to engage in proactive policing. Far to often they are harassed or assaulted by bystanders when exercising their duties. Police have even been openly targeted for assassination on multiple occasions. The criminals know that liberal city and/or county prosecutors, state administrations, a corrupt judiciary and politically correct press will spend more effort “understanding” and “commiserating” with them as “victims” of racism or white privilege, than prosecuting them for actual crimes committed.

There are few places where the Ferguson Effect is more pronounced than in New York City. The self avowed communist mayor there has abandoned the policies that made NYC once one of the safest large cities in America. The mayor, his administration, a complicit judiciary and media as well as the thugs, gangs and organized criminal enterprises operating in and around the city have either bought hook, line and sinker the lie that cops are gunning down black men at will, are all closet racists or have decided to use these false narratives to their advantage. The fact that the vast majority of murdered blacks are killed by blacks is not only well known but decisively and studiously ignored by liberal leaders and their media and judicial accomplices. Simply observing that undeniable fact causes one to be labeled a racist.

This evil strategy, blaming fictional institutional racism for every ill, real or perceived, experienced by black people has been an article of faith to liberals for the last couple of decades. The newly invented “white privilege” was created to disguise the highly developed sense of black (and to a slightly lesser degree, hispanic and moslem) self entitlement created and nurtured by liberals. Consider the following cities as prime examples of where liberal policies on not just crime but poverty have been running unchecked for a very long time.

Baltimore. Democrat mayors with 18,000 consecutive days in charge. Poverty rate: 23.6%.

Chicago. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 24.7%.

Detroit. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 39.3%.

Philadelphia. Democrat mayors with 20,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 31.4%.

St. Louis. Democrat mayors with 15,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 28.5%.

I can hear all you statisticians saying correlation does not always equal causation. After all, everyone who ate a carrot a hundred and fifty years ago died. True, but this is just a tiny sample from a much larger pool of dramatically similar evidence. Sometimes correlation does equal causation.

As if there are not enough criminals in America liberals insist on importing as many more as fast as they can. I understand that not every “refugee” or illegal alien is a “criminal” but honesty requires me to acknowledge that a high percentage of them are and often of the most heinous type. By definition anyone here illegally is already a criminal and I can come up with no sane reason to accept and reward (cash welfare, medical, housing, food stamps, child tax credit, drivers licenses, in state college tuition etc) people who have chosen to violate the law. One cannot help but note that, in the importation of islamic “refugees” the vast majority (up to 90% depending on which period you evaluate) are males age 17-45. If you are wondering why this could be important consider that I have just given you the demographic of every standing army on the planet.
As a first generation American I am certainly not against legal immigration. However, I am against importing by the millions people who adamantly and sometimes violently, refuse to assimilate. These are the “immigrants” or “refugees” whose main function seems to be converting the most successful, inventive, tolerant, prosperous and freest country in the history of mankind into the hell hole they “fled”.
Liberals accept the importing of hundreds of thousands of moslems without question. They do so knowing full well that moslems generally refuse to assimilate and they will attempt to force their religion on everyone by threat, intimidation, force and lawfare. As moslems, many will rape, kill and plunder because their religion allows it (in the koran I read these actions are demanded from a devout moslem as part of his religious duties to further the influence of islam) and the moslems know the liberals will cover for them.
It is a sad fact that for the last several years virtually every “major” media outlet has refused to list the ethnicity/immigration status of criminals unless they are white males. They have taken this strategy to the absurd extreme of labeling, for example, a Mexican illegal alien as white if he has or uses an anglo sounding name. This strategy has been used to effectively cover up what amounts to a rape epidemic by so called “immigrants” of, as far as I can tell, unparalleled proportions in American history. The main perpetrators seem to come from south of the border countries, African countries and islamic countries.
The average moslem “refugee” and average illegal alien share some common attributes highly valued by liberals. Both tend to have less than a high school education, virtually no marketable skills, little to no understanding of or ability or even desire to use the English language, commit a wide variety of crimes at a much higher rate that native born citizens and are heavily welfare dependent. They each demand special accommodations at every turn. Subtract the language component and you have the demographic of your average street thug. Hey, no worries. Liberals believe that once the America so many of us grew up in has been destroyed by these “immigrants” they can rebuild it correctly.
Until then as long as the illegal aliens/refugees vote democratic and work cheaply for the Chamber of Commerce no one in government will do anything substantive to solve the problem. Remember dear reader you and I, like Kate Stienle, are a sacrifice liberals are willing to make.

You Might Be A Liberal If…..

 

For nearly thirty years liberals have had near total control of the public education system. In that time they have been able to, with the help of a compliant media and sycophant politicians, create a false narrative about what it means to be a conservative and what it means to be a liberal. In an effort to help folks understand the difference between liberals/progressives and normal people I have created a list of possible warning signs that may occur prior to the onset of the dementia known as liberalism. Sometimes, in an effort to disguise their illness those afflicted with liberalism will diagnose themselves as progressives. Understand that this is merely an attempt by someone who knows they are afflicted trying to deny the affliction. Some of the following observations are funny, some are not and some are just plain sad. I take no credit for any of these symptoms (even the ones I think I came up with on my own) as I have doubtlessly recreated something someone said somewhere. That said, I am not a doctor and I don’t play one on TV so I don’t intend this to be a diagnostic tool but if you find yourself in sympathy with four or more of these statements I would suggest getting some professional, conservative education as soon as possible.

I hate to say it but this list could go on for another several hundred pages. Liberals and progressives make it that easy. I think by now you, dear reader, are getting the idea of how liberals view the world. It is a uniquely odd way of life liberals have chosen. Today’s liberal/progressive views truth as a relative thing subject to nothing but their own intentions, definitions and feelings. Their idea of tolerance is beyond reason given the amount of time and money spent to “help” the poor and the levels of crime they are willing to tolerate to demonstrate their “compassion.” Their worship of a clearly perpetrated hoax (global warming, proven a hoax by their own emails) demonstrates beyond a doubt their derision of actual science. Despite all of this it is incumbent on us conservatives to remind liberals/progressives at every opportunity about the nature of their affliction. Liberalism is a self-feeding state of delusion that denies its victims the opportunity to live a fulfilling life of true meaning and accomplishment because it requires them to obtain the approval of those they have set as the arbiters of right and wrong. For far to many liberals/progressives happiness comes not from within but from approved outside sources. Some argue for a cautious, baby step approach to curing liberalism. I do not believe that approach can have any long lasting success. I prefer the tough love approach. Be bold, be patient, be accurate, be kind but most of all be relentless in your education of liberals. No matter what defense the liberal/progressive may attempt the truth is the conservatives ally. When engaged with a liberal/progressive remember this maxim, never give up, never surrender!

Here We Go Again

My heart and prayers go out to all the Sandy Hook victims. No one should have to endure a tragedy of such proportions. Even as a father and grandfather, I am incapable of understanding the grief the parents must be experiencing at this very moment. It is with a truly heavy heart that I write this column. Even so, some things must be noted.

It only took a couple of hours from the moment Americans learned of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre last Friday for the liberal wingnuts , ie editorialists, columnists, broadcasters, politicians to use the occasion to promote one of their most sacred issues, gun control.

Its not like this hasn’t been tried before. Consider the “success” of the Clinton era assault weapons ban. The following is a list of school shootings during that period.

November 15, 1995: Lynnville, Tennessee. A 17-year-old boy shot and killed a student and teacher with a .22 rifle.

February 2, 1996: Moses Lake, Washington. Two students and one teacher killed, one other wounded when 14-year-old Barry Loukaitis opened fire on his algebra class.

February 19, 1997: Bethel, Alaska. Principal and one student killed, two others wounded by Evan Ramsey, 16.

October 1, 1997: Pearl, Mississippi. Two students killed and seven wounded by Luke Woodham, 16. He was also accused of killing his mother. He and his friends supposedly worshiped Satan.

November 27, 1997: West Palm Beach, Florida. Conniston Middle School 14-year-old John Kamel was fatally shot outside school by 14-year-old Tronneal Mangum after an argument over an Adidas watch that Mangum had taken from Kamel.

December 1, 1997: West Paducah, Kentucky. Three students killed, five wounded by Michael Carneal, 14, as they participated in a prayer circle at Heath High School.

December 15, 1997: Stamps, Arkansas. Two students wounded. Colt Todd, 14, was hiding in the woods when he shot the students as they stood in the parking lot.

March 24, 1998: Jonesboro, Arkansas. Four students and one teacher killed, ten others wounded outside as Westside Middle School emptied during a false fire alarm. Mitchell Johnson, 13, and Andrew Golden, 11, fired at their classmates and teachers from the woods.

April 24, 1998: Edinboro, Pennsylvania. One teacher, John Gillette, was killed and two students wounded at a dance at James W. Parker Middle School. Charged with the crimes was Andrew Wurst, 14.

May 21, 1998: Springfield, Oregon. Two students killed, 22 others wounded in the cafeteria at Thurston High School by 15-year-old Kip Kinkel. Kinkel had been arrested and released a day earlier for bringing a gun to school. His parents were later found dead at home, shot to death by their son.

June 15, 1998: Richmond, Virginia. One teacher and one guidance counselor wounded by a 14-year-old boy in the school hallway.

May 19, 1998: Fayetteville, Tennessee. High School Senior Jacob Davis shot and killed eighteen year-old Robert “Nick” Creson in a dispute over a girl.

December 10, 1998: Detroit, Michigan. One professor killed by a graduate student.

April 20, 1999: Columbine, Colorado. 12 students and both shooters along with one teacher killed, 27 others wounded at Columbine High School. Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, had plotted for a year to kill at least 500 and blow up their school. At the end of their hour-long rampage, they turned their guns on themselves.

May 20, 1999: Conyers, Georgia. Six students injured at Heritage High School by Thomas Solomon, 15.

November 19, 1999: Deming, New Mexico. One student killed at Deming Middle School by Victor Cordova Jr., 13.

February 29, 2000: Buell Elementary School, Flint, Michigan. 6-year-old Dedrick Owens shot and killed Kayla Rolland.

May 26, 2000: Lake Worth, Florida Lake Worth Middle School Florida. Teacher Barry Grunow was fatally shot by 13-year-old Nathaniel Brazill, who had returned to school after being sent home for throwing water balloons. Brazill returned to school on his bike with a handgun stolen from his grandfather the week before. Brazill was an honor student and Grunow, reportedly Brazill’s favorite teacher, was a popular teacher.

August 28, 2000: University of Arkansas shooting at Fayetteville, Arkansas. At approximately 12:14 pm, Dr. John R. Locke, 67, Director of the Comparative Literature Program was shot and killed in his office by James E. Kelly, 36, a Comparative Literature PhD candidate who had recently been dismissed from the program for lack of progress towards his degree. Kelly shot Dr. Locke three times before taking his own life in Dr. Locke’s office after it was cordoned off by police.

September 26, 2000. Darrel Johnson, 13, offender in Louisiana school shooting with 1 student fatality.

March 5, 2001. Charles Andrew William, age 15, offender in California school shooting at Santana High School, 15 wounded 2 of which later died.

March 30, 2001. Donald R. Burt Jr., age 18, offender in Indiana school shooting with 1 student fatality.

I have not been able to confirm that all the schools in this list were gun free zones but many were and I believe all the shooters knew if their schools were gun free zones.

The city of Chicago is a prime example of just how drastically gun free zones fail. The city had some of the strictest gun control measures of anywhere in the U.S. As of December 2nd, 2012 there have been 470 murders within city limits. The major media places the number of murders at 485. Clearly another success for the gun grabbing advocates.

With such a stunning record of failure you would think the liberals would reconsider their intractable obsession with an indefensible position. Gun control it seems fails wherever it is practiced. Consider the following.

In the United Kingdom after a school massacre in Dunblane some years ago, the Parliament in a catastrophic knee-jerk reaction banned the private ownership and use of pistols. The result was a fine demonstration of Monckton’s Law of Opposite Consequences. Crimes using handguns increased by 40 percent following the ban.

Thomas Sowell in a recent column “Invincible Ignorance” points out that “In 1954, there were only a dozen armed robberies in London but, by the 1990s– after decades of ever tightening gun ownership restrictions– there were more than a hundred times as many armed robberies.”

In Switzerland, every male citizen of working age must serve one week a year in the national Militia and keep a rifle at home in case anyone is foolish enough to invade. According to liberal logic Switzerland should be awash in the blood of innocents. Yet Switzerland does not have massacres. Interesting.

Many countries with stronger gun control laws than the United States, like Russia, Brazil and Mexico all have higher murder rates than the United States.

Israel, New Zealand, and Finland have high rates of gun ownership and low murder rates.

Lets return to the U.S. for a moment.

Professor Thomas Baker of Virginia Commonwealth University recently completed a study that revealed that since 2006 gun sales in Virginia have climbed 73%, while the number of violent crimes involving guns has declined by more than 27%. Some will call this coincidence. I don’t think so.

For years, the gun grabbers have been telling us that more guns means more crime, more murders etc. These wingnuts will allow no amount of factual evidence to the contrary to be considered.

From the very effective, and thus much hated by liberals, National Rifle Association comes the following.

Studies indicate that firearms are used over 2 million times a year for personal protection, and that the presence of a firearm, without a shot being fired, prevents crime in many instances. Shooting usually can be justified only where crime constitutes an immediate, imminent threat to life, limb, or, in some cases, property.

Here are some current examples from the NRA web site.

Zachary Rogers, 26, was working late one night at the 21st Amendment liquor store. It was just past midnight when an armed man wearing a ski mask entered the store and forced Rogers and another store employee, Alicia Grabarczyk, 25, down a hallway toward an office where the safe was kept. With a concealed handgun in his front pocket, Rogers chose his moment of opportunity carefully. In one quick motion, Rogers pushed Grabarczyk to the floor and fired at the armed robber. He then helped Grabarczyk into the office and out of the line of fire. Although the burglar had been struck, Rogers saw him raise his firearm. Rogers fired three more rounds at the gunman which proved fatal. Neither Rogers nor Grabarczyk were harmed. (Indianapolis Star, Indianapolis, IN, 10/11/12)

While at home with his wife and daughter, a homeowner prepared to go outside to investigate a sudden power outage. His wife asked him to carry his firearm with him as a precaution. As he opened the front door to step outside, three men charged him in an attempt to gain entry. The homeowner pushed his wife aside as he fell backward and fired at the intruders. His daughter, a student in her early 20s, hid in another room and called police. One of the three home invaders suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was listed in serious condition. The remaining two suspects managed to escape. The homeowner and his family were not seriously injured. (Sun Sentinel, Miramar, FL, 10/2/12)

Kendra St. Clair, a 12-year-old at home alone one day during her fall break, called her mother at work to say there was a man repeatedly ringing the doorbell and banging on the door. When no one answered the door, she said he disappeared. St. Clair’s mother instructed her daughter to get her .40-cal. Glock pistol and go into a bathroom closet. St. Clair heard him break in through the back door. As the man made his way through her home, 911 dispatchers kept St. Clair on the phone. He was inside the home for approximately six minutes before he made his way to the bathroom where St. Clair was hiding. When she saw the door knob begin to turn, she fired the gun. The 32-year-old intruder was taken into custody after being treated for a gunshot to the chest. (The Oklahoman, Durant, OK, 10/20/12)

George Polanin, 66, went to bed early one evening only to be awakened by noises coming from inside his home. He was upstairs and followed the sound of footsteps to the basement. When he reached the stairs, Polanin said he could see only the intruder’s feet. “ … I got my weapon and basically told him I had a weapon, it was loaded and I will use it,” Polanin said. He then ordered the intruder to come out as he dialed 911. Polanin held the intruder at gunpoint until police arrived. (Kenosha News, Kenosha, WI, 10/17/12)

Cindy Schachter, an employee at Furnari Jewelers, was working when two men entered the store around 4 p.m. Schachter’s boss, Anthony Furnari, was sitting at his desk facing the showroom. Something about the men made Schachter uneasy, so she gave her boss a quiet warning right before they pulled clothing over their faces and jumped over the counter. Furnari quickly pulled his .38-cal. handgun from his desk and fired several rounds at one of the suspects as he came toward him. Furnari was severely beaten as both men tried to gain control of his firearm. When Furnari fought back, the men grabbed a display of gold chains and fled. One suspect was later taken into custody after seeking treatment for several bullet wounds. It was last reported that the second suspect was still at large. Furnari suffered a broken nose, a concussion, multiple stitches to the face and hand, and a fractured rib. Schachter was reportedly unharmed. (The Republican, Chicopee, MA, 10/17/12)

Finally, lets look at Gun Town U.S.A. In March of 1982 the small town of Kennesaw, Illinois, passed an ordinance mandating that the head of every household own and maintain a gun. Liberals went nuts saying Kennesaw would turn into the wild west. Every dispute, they claimed, would end in a gunfight. As far as I have been able to find not a single resident has been involved in a fatal shooting.

Gun control zealots have been on the wrong side of the debate for as long as I can remember. That doesn’t bother them. They are so ideologically invested in their position, or so brainwashed by the media/education establishment, that they have lost the ability to reason. It is perfectly acceptable in their minds to have, if I can borrow a phrase from my military days, target rich environments where no one is likely to be able to defend themselves.

Given their intransigence, these people cannot be reasoned with and must not be listened to. They must be reminded of the rights U.S. constitution gives us and regularly defeated at the ballot box.
