How to Talk to Conservatives About Gun Control

orlandoshooterThe biggest, deadliest mass shooting in the United States took the lives of 49 people at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016. This has brought gun control onto the minds of many. This is forcing a tipping point that even the NRA the biggest lobby in D.C. will start to see the light and at least help prevent terrorist watch list people buying guns not be able to do so. The entire nation is talking about it and hopefully we do not give up this time like we do after every other mass shooting here in America. We have put together a list of some of the best posts and facts on the issue. Comment below on what you want to add to the list.

-No mass shootings in the past 30 years have been stopped by an armed civilian; in 1982, an armed civilian successfully killed a shooter, but it was only after he committed the crime.
-Orlando was only 1 of 43 shootings that occurred this past Sunday
-166 days have passed in 2016 and we have had 133 shootings thus far
-Toddlers have shot 23 people so far in 2016
-Every day, 297 people in America are shot in murders, assaults, suicides & suicide attempts, unintentional shootings, and police intervention.
-Every day, 89 people die from gun violence: 31 are murdered.
-Every day, 208 people are shot and survive.
-There have been 18 mass shootings through February of this year, not including the Orlando killings.
-Gun ownership is concentrated among older adults, rural residents, and whites, especially white Southerners.
-Of the 12 deadliest shootings in the United States, at least half happened after 2007.
-States with stricter gun control laws have fewer deaths from gun-related violence.

guncontrolpenisDrunk Driving Vs. Gun Control
One Argument you will hear from republicans is them saying drunk driving still happens. A drunk driving accident is NOT the same as a mass murder by a maniac wielding an assault rifle. Do not suggest car buying control as a comparison to gun control. What a fool the person is that said this. Furthermore, The idea of stopping gun violence by giving more people guns is the logical equivalent of stopping drunk driving by buying everyone drinks.

ar15in5minutesAn 18 yr-old can walk around with an AR15 they bought in 5 minutes
For one you can walk into a gun store and buy an AR15 in 5 minutes? One 20-yr old named Cody Davis from thetab.com reported. He posted it two days after the worst mass shooting in American history from a local gun shop in Virginia which showed no hesitation in selling an AR-15. With the shop doing nothing wrong because of local laws they even suggested the AR15 in a salesman way to buy it. This is with No delay, No extensive background check, and on top of that a recently expired driver’s license. If a 20-year-old college student can walk into a gun shop and be out in minutes with an AR-15, and you believe nothing needs to be changed, you need help. All they did to the gun to make it legal for purchase for someone under 21 was add a butt to it. The shoulder stock or a butt lowers the buying age from 21 to 18. Another loophole in the long list of gun show and shop loopholes. Comparable to the 20 yr-old buying his in 5 minutes. Helen Ubinas, a reporter for Philly.com bought hers in just 7 minutes. This is not just in one gun shop. This is everywhere in America.

In one of the best The Daily Show episodes ever, John Oliver eviscerates a major gun control opponent with logic, precedent, facts, and reality.

Ruth GinsbergSupreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg on the Second Amendment:
“The Second Amendment has a preamble about the need for a militia…Historically, the new government had no money to pay for an army, so they relied on the state militias. And the states required men to have certain weapons and they specified in the law what weapons these people had to keep in their home so that when they were called to do service as militiamen, they would have them. That was the entire purpose of the Second Amendment.”

The argument that everyone should carry around a gun.
The NRA: “Everyone should have a gun. We’ll all be safer when everyone has a gun.”
Black Guy: “Hello, officer. So you’re aware, I have a gun, and a license to carry said gun.”
Police: “BLACK GUY WITH A GUN!” *BANG BANG SHOOT*

But, Justice Ginsburg explains, “When we no longer need people to keep muskets in their home, then the Second Amendment has no function, its function is to enable the young nation to have people who will fight for it to have weapons that those soldiers will own. So I view the Second Amendment as rooted in the time totally allied to the need to support a militia. So…the Second Amendment is outdated in the sense that its function has become obsolete.”

Reports of voting machines switching votes from Trump to Rubio #SuperTuesday

rubiolyingTed Cruz was caught red handed cheating for votes lying about Ben Carson in Iowa but now we found out that Marco Rubio is cheating his way to the top. An Austin radio station KLBJ received dozens of complaints today that Texas voting machines had changed their votes mostly from Donald Trump to Senator Marco Rubio.

The hosts of KLBJ’s Todd And Don Show noted that three callers had already complained about their votes being switched from Trump to Rubio when a fourth caller dialed in to say her ballot had been switched from Trump to Linda Gray.

“That’s not good,” one of the hosts agreed. “You are the fourth person to call us in the past half hour to say they had that same problem. They voted for Trump but it popped up Rubio or somebody else. You’re the first to have somebody else, but the other three were Rubio.”

Russia 9/11 Teardrop Monument given to the U.S. with No Publicity

teardrop monument russia 911This monument located in New Jersey across the river from the scene of the 9-11 attack was donated to the United States from Russia. We are just now learning of this monument as the media said nothing about it. It was dedicated on September 11, 2006. Fox News did not talk about it neither did CNN or MSNBC in the mainstream media.

“Nobody ever comes here,” says a taxi driver about the The 100-ft tall, 175-ton memorial. Vladimir Putin was there when construction began and Bill Clinton attended the dedication ceremony in 2006. Since then, it has been forgotten.

“The monument in this picture, officially entitled “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism” (but also known as “The Memorial at Harbor View Park” or the “Tear Drop Memorial”), was dedicated at the northeast corner of Bayonne Peninsula in New Jersey on 11 September 2006, the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States.
The monument was the work of Russian artist Zurab Tsereteli, whose inspiration was described thusly in a brochure about the monument:

“To the Struggle Against World Terrorism” was conceived as the events of 9/11 unfolded and Russian artist Zurab Tsereteli walked the streets of Moscow. Struck by the outpouring of grief he observed, a memorial with an image of a tear formed in his mind. Shortly after the attacks, Tsereteli visited ground zero and looked to
New Jersey’s waterfront for an appropriate site for a monument honoring victims of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks.

Mug Shots Removal is Big Business

RobertWiggenMugShot-ownerofmugshotsitesWho would have thought we would live in a day where we could have extortion and online blackmail so rampant as it is with businesses ruining peoples lives? It is happening, Folks. What happens is someone is arrested from a warrant (even when turning themselves in) or any other arrest and it is posted on the county or city jail sites which is public information. The photos are normally just up for a limited time such as 24 hours so the family or friends may bail them out of jail but the information may still be there. Bots come along and scrape these jail sites and then post the photo and all the information then put up links and heavily SEO (Search engine optimization) words and URL’s to include their names even including a fake newsstory to make it more real for Google and search engines. You might think this is a great thing because it makes “criminals” pay for what they did and will teach them a lesson. Just wait until it happens to you and you may also know that it happens without being found guilty. These are basically innocent people because they have not been to court yet and not even had a chance to enter a plea in most cases. Just because you are arrested does not mean guilt.

It almost reminds me of the book “Scarlet Letter” where the lady had to wear an adultery letter on her in public and be bullied and hated among the community. You have got to wonder how many suicides have been contributed to these mugshot sites? Why aren’t these sites being sued or outlawed by our government or unindexed by Google, Yahoo, and Bing?
