Erich Pratt, the Senior Vice President of Gun Owners of America, criticized Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam ‘s decision to bring gun control up in the Virginia Special session that is set to take place in July.
According to Pratt, “Northam is trying to capitalize on the shooting that took place in Virginia Beach last month to distract from his racist record.”
Nevertheless, the media and their political allies such as Northam don’t care. They continue pushing for these policies despite all the evidence pointing to the ineffectiveness of gun control in stopping these shootings.
Pratt highlights one of the more tragic aspects of this shooting that the media tends to ignore.
The case of Katie Nixon, a Virginia Beach municipal employee, who actually wanted to bring a gun to the municipal center for security purposes.
She decided not to bring the gun for fear of getting fired.
This proved to be a fatal decision, as Nixon was one of the 12 killed in the incident.
Pratt pointed out that “Gun bans, such as the one which prohibits city workers in Virginia Beach from carrying guns, are not a deterrent to criminals.”
He notes that these laws “only deter honest, hard-working employees like Mrs. Nixon who don’t want to lose their jobs or go to jail.”
The Senior Vice President of GOA mentions how the murderer passed a government background check, which did nothing to prevent him from carrying out the massacre.
Many skeptics argued that Nixon likely would not have been effective in stopping the perpetrator, but Pratt points to several examples of individuals using firearms to stop shootings.
- A California mom, fearing for the safety of herself and her children, shot a hammer-wielding intruder in her home.
- A Florida woman held a home invader at gun-point for 26 minutes while waiting for the police to arrive.
- And an Ohio mom shot a home intruder while her children slept upstairs.
Thanks to having access to firearms, these women were able to defend themselves. But as Pratt points out, “Kate Nixon was prevented the chance.”
Pratt then referenced a previous shooting that took place at a Maryland newspaper plant last June.
A former employee entered the Capital Gazette and ended up murdering five employees.
Like the Virginia Beach massacre, gun control was unable to prevent this shooting.
Several inconvenient facts were highlighted:
- The Capital Gazette killer passed a background check.
- He bypassed the state’s “evil assault weapons” ban by using a commonly-owned shotgun.
- And the state’s “red flag” law, imposing gun-confiscation orders, completely failed to disarm this killer, even while all his potential victims were disarmed by law.
It also doesn’t help that Maryland’s “may issue” concealed carry law prohibits a large number of law-abiding citizens from becoming licensed firearms carriers.
That’s because Maryland’s “may issue” concealed carry law makes it extremely difficult for average citizens to become licensed firearms carriers.
Interestingly, Pratt pointed out that “The same day that Kate Nixon was murdered, the Milwaukee media was reporting how a Wisconsin woman used her concealed carry firearm to shoot a larger, more powerful male who assaulted her with a club.”
These cases are often ignored by Northam and many pundits clamoring for gun control.
Armed civilians are more than capable of stopping criminals.
Even with Republican control of the legislative branches of the Virginia General Assembly, Virginia gun owners will definitely have their hands full in the upcoming special session.
Our sacred rights have to be defended at all times.
A Researcher at Brown University Claims that Trump Signs and American Flags Frighten Black People
America’s “Finest” Institutions Down the Insane Path of Wokeness
Carycruz Bueno, a postdoctoral researcher at Brown University, tweeted about how Black Airbnb guests may actually receive trauma from looking at Trump signs.
A few weeks ago Bueno tweeted that the online vacation rental company “doesn’t understand the trauma” that Trump signs allegedly cause for Black people.
As Ben Zeisloft of Campus Reform noted, “Airbnb rentals are privately owned properties listed for short-term and long-term rental on Airbnb. Airbnb, unlike hotels, does not own the properties. It is the platform that connects private owners with renters and facilitates payments.”
Bueno claimed that when she and her husband arrived at a property they rented in Maine they saw “Trump signs and other white nationalist symbols” in the yard. Bueno recalled that she was “immediately scared” for her life and her family’s safety.
According to Bueno’s account of the situation, Airbnb said they could do nothing to address the situation. The Brown University researcher said that this a “prime example [of] how White companies make a BLM statement,”and then proceed to “do nothing” when a Black person declares that she doesn’t “feel safe.”
Bueno is of the opinion that Airbnb is “only words no action,” and should “do better” to accommodate the grievances of so-called persecuted groups.
She also advocated for the establishment of a “greenbook version of AirBnB” in order for BIPOC (black indigenous people of color) not have “to pay to feel uncomfortable and scared.”
Bueno even went as far as to say that the American flag could serve as a symbol “used in many places to scare Black people,” on top of KKK and Confederate symbols.
Several conservative students on campus were not happy with Bueno’s remarks.
Brown University Students for Trump President Emma Rae Phillips said to Campus Reform that she is “disappointed by Bueno’s comments.”
Phillips is an economics major and observed that Bueno’s “tweets do not seem to show much understanding of how free markets work” given how people who use Airbnb can patronize other services instead.
Additionally, she noted that “American flags and Trump signs are not racist in any way, shape, or form.”
With how radically indoctrinated many students have become, you can only expect the most outlandish of behavior coming from these students. Late stage political correctness if you will.
Conservatives may have to social distance themselves from these institutions of higher learning. They’re more like indoctrination centers at this point.
