The Latest Mass Shooting Doesn’t Fit CNN’s Typical Narrative

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.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
