John Lott and Thomas Massie co-authored a piece on Fox making the case for abolishing gun-free zones.
The recent massacre at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center has brought back the usual gun control debate that Americans have constantly seen in the media.
Lott and Massie, however, noticed “an all too familiar pattern” after this shooting. Specifically, this was another mass shooting that took place where victims were banned from carrying guns.
They noted that “most lives are claimed in places where people can’t defend themselves on equal footing.”
One of the bombshell revelations that they uncovered was that Kate Nixon, a compliance manager at the municipal center, was worried about a fellow employee and discussed with her husband the night before the attack about taking her concealed carry handgun. Although she is licensed to carry, the city bans individuals, including public employees, from carrying “any weapon” on city property unless authorized by a supervisor. As a result, she decided not to carry.
However, the murderer, DeWayne Craddock, did not follow the law and Kate Nixon became one of the 12 people slaughtered in this massacre. This is part of a larger trend that Lott has studied in recent times. Lott’s research indicates that 98 percent of all mass shootings in the U.S. since 1950 have taken place in gun-free zones.
In response to such an alarming trend, Massie introduced H.R. 3200 last week, “a bill that repeals the Gun-Free School Zones Act (GFSZA) of 1990.”
The Safe Students Act already has co-sponsors in Justin Amash, R-Mich., Jody Hice, R-Ga., Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, James Comer, R-Ky., and Brian Babin, R-Texas.
Given the partisan makeup of the U.S. House, this bill will likely not come up for a vote.
However, it is getting the conversation started on the abolition of gun-free zones.
Mexico is in Third Place for Wuhan Virus Deaths Yet Democrats Still Want to Open the Floodgates to Mass Migration
According to the John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, Mexico is ranked in third place for Wuhan virus deaths.
The country has 462,690 confirmed cases, with 50,517 people having died from the virus. This puts Mexico’s case fatality rate at 10.9 percent
According to a report from Breitbart News, Mexican officials assert that the “high number of fatalities is due to the fact that people are fat and eat junk food.”
There is speculation that the numbers disclosed by the Mexican government have been filled with cases of rampant undercounting. Some officials believe that the numbers could be three times as high as those officially recorded, according to a Breitbart Texas report.
As of August 7, 2020, the following countries led the way in terms of Wuhan virus related deaths.
- United States — 160,104 fatalities
- Brazil — 98,493 fatalities
- Mexico — 50,517 fatalities
Although the conventional narrative is that high diabetes and obesity rates contributed to Mexico’s high Wuhan virus death count, Ildefonso Ortiz of Breitbart News pointed to information from the government epidemiology oversight database which “revealed that in Mexico City, many of the fatal patients were actually otherwise-healthy young adults who did not have access to a ventilator” according to a Forbes report.
Regardless of what the root causes of Mexico’s Wuhan virus death are, the U.S. needs to get serious about fully securing its border.
Let’s face it, Mexico is a failed state and its problems will inevitably make their way to the U.S. if the border remains relaxed.
With Democrat candidate Joe Biden calling for radical open borders policies, the U.S. is on the cusp of unleashing a tidal wave of social and public health dysfunction should he beat President Trump in November.
The Trump administration needs to get serious about this matter and completely secure the border while exposing Biden’s mass migration radicalism.
