Published

on

On Friday, June 1, 2019, a gunman killed twelve people and wounded six at a Virginia Beach municipal center.

The shooter, was an African American male by the name of DeWayne Craddock who was a “longtime public utilities employee.”

The perpetrator used a .45 handgun to commit the indiscriminate slaughter and was shot dead by police.

According to an NBC report, Craddock, who worked for the city for about 15 years as an engineer, “recently purchased multiple firearms legally.”

Naturally, there were calls for gun control from Democrats, who ignore that Craddock passed his federal background check like every gun owner in the nation has to.

The media have been relatively silent about this shooting, with some speculating that it may have  to do with the fact that the shooter was African American.

In the wake of other shootings, media outlets like Newsweek tend to focus on how 54 percent of shootings are committed by whites. The report Newsweek used in this instance was from 2017.

From 1982 until June 2018, 59 of the 101 mass shootings during that period were committed by white people according to data from Statista, a site which provides “statistics and studies from more than 22,500 sources.” African Americans had the next-highest number of mass shooting perpetrators at 16.

From the looks of it, the Virginia Beach shooting does not fit the media’s ongoing narrative, thus it will not receive much coverage like other shootings.

No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab

Published

on

On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”

At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”

“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky  Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.

“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
