The fake news media loves to focus excessively on tragedies that can divide us and be used to further take away our rights. The New Zealand Mosque shootings has dominated the news cycle for days while another deadly weekend in the Windy City has been largely ignored.
The Chicago Sun Times reported on the tragic but all-too-familiar display of senseless gun violence:
“Three people have been killed and at least 12 others wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.
Friday night saw three people shot, one of them fatally; eight people were shot and one killed Saturday; and four people have been shot on Sunday, one of them fatally.
A double shooting Sunday afternoon left a man dead and a boy wounded in the Gage Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side. They were driving at 1:20 p.m. in the 2600 block of West 55th Street when another vehicle pulled up and someone inside started shooting, Chicago police said.
The man, 21, was shot in his head and later died at a hospital, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not released details about the death. The boy, 16, was shot in the shoulder and treated at the same hospital, police said.
In another fatal shooting, a man was killed and a woman wounded early Saturday in the Avalon Park community on the South Side.
Bud Clarke, 34, and a woman were arguing with a man in the 8400 block of South Stony Island Avenue, authorities said. The argument turned physical and the man, 46, fired shots at them, police said. Clarke was struck in the chest and the woman, 51, in the ankle.”
The city of Chicago celebrated “low” levels of violent crime in 2018 but still posted a murder rate higher than Los Angeles and New York City combined. The clueless leaders of the city credit anti-constitutional gun seizures and more federal gun control enforcement for this “success.”
“The correlation between gun seizures and gun arrests and the decline in homicides and shootings just simply cannot be overlooked,” Superintendent of Police Eddie T. Johnson said to reporters last year.
“Not only have we recovered more guns and made more gun arrests than we did in previous years, but we’ve also had more federal gun prosecutions. When people talk about the fact that we recover more [illegal weapons] than New York and LA combined, it’s not because we’re that much better than them, it’s because we have that much more volume of illegal weapons in this city,” Johnson added.
“There are too many guns on the street, too many people with criminal records on the street, and there is a shortage of values of what is right and what is wrong,” said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who offered little more than cheap platitudes in response to the gun violence epidemic in Chicago.
The mainstream media and Democratic Party focus excessively on violence in far-away lands like New Zealand to further polarize society and divide individuals to weaken America.
They ignore violence in the homeland, particularly in Chicago where there are strong gun laws, because it does not suit their anti-American agenda. To the fake news, black lives apparently do not matter.
Texas Governor Abbott Wants Texas to Be a “Second Amendment Sanctuary”
The Texas GOP needs to get its act together and start passing pro-2A legislation
Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he wants to turn Texas into a Second Amendment sanctuary state.
Patrick Sviteck of the Texas Tribune reported on Twitter, “Abbott tells TPPF he wants to make TX a “2A sanctuary state” this session “so that no gov’t official at any level can come & take your gun away from you despite those ppl who say, ‘Heck yes, we’re gonna take your gun.’ We’re gonna say, ‘Heck no, you cannot take ppl’s guns'” in TX.”
Abbott’s quip about taking people’s guns was in response to Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke remarks during the 2019 Democrat presidential debates where he explicitly called for gun confiscation.

Abbott’s comment came after a number of Texas counties began to declare themselves as “Second Amendment sanctuaries” throughout 2020. Daniel Friend of The Texan reported that “By early 2020, commissioners in over 60 counties — often with the support of the county sheriff — had passed some sort of Second Amendment sanctuary resolution.”
Two elected officials have filed different versions of the Texas Firearm Protection Act, which Greg Abbott pushed back in 2013 when he was Attorney General. The TFPA is a piece of legislation that would ban law enforcement from enforcing federal gun control schemes “that purports to regulate a firearm, a firearm accessory, or firearm ammunition if the statute, order, rule, or regulation imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity or size limitation, a registration requirement, or a background check, that does not exist under the laws of this state.”
At a Texas Public Policy Foundation event, Abbott emphasized his pro-Tenth Amendment credentials by stating that “I still hold a record that will never be broken by anybody.I hold the record for the most lawsuits filed against Barack Obama — 31 legal actions against him.”
The Texas Governor added, “We had to because the actions he was taking trampled upon Texas’ liberties based upon the Tenth Amendment. We need to go back to the fundamentals of the Tenth Amendment and reassert that against any potential encroachments that we see under the Biden administration.”
The sanctuary movement is arguably one of the brightest spots for the right heading into the Biden era. Despite Democrat control at the federal level, there will be more paths for reform available at the state and local level. This should make Second Amendment operatives realize that not all politics is federal. Plus, gaining in power in D.C. necessitates having strong local political machines. Fighting Second Amendment battles at the state and local level is a good way to build a power base.
As cliche as it may sound, all politics is still local.
