President and Mrs. Obama attend the memorial service for the Naval Yard Shooting.
Dear Patriotic Conservative,
It is absolutely sickening! Once again, President Barack Obama does not let a “crisis go to waste” via the White House.
The Naval Yard shooting, which recently claimed 12 unarmed, defenseless military personnel, had at their ceremony an address by the President of the United States of America.
Obama said that these types of confrontations were supposed to “shock” and “obsess” us into “doing something” about gun violence: President Obama actually used this solemn ceremony to advance his anti-gun efforts! As he promoted his strong anti-gun agenda, he said:
“It ought to be a shock to all of us, it ought to obsess us. It ought to lead to some sort of transformation… Our tears are not enough. Our words and our prayers are not enough. If we really want to honor these 12 men and women, if we really want to be a country where we can go to work and go to school and walk our streets free from senseless violence without so many lives being stolen by a bullet from a gun, then we’re going to have to change. [But] nothing happens. Alongside the anguish of these American families, alongside the accumulated outrage so many of us feel, sometimes I fear there is a creeping resignation that these tragedies are just somehow the way it is, that this is somehow the new normal. We cannot accept this. As Americans bound in grief and love, we must insist here today there is nothing normal about innocent men and women being gunned down where they work.”
The Naval Yard Shooter who was not a weapons’ expert.
Aaron Alexis, the Naval Yard shooter, was able to obtain a shotgun that he used to take out two security guards whose pistols Alexis took and used on his other victims. There were strict gun laws in effect at the Naval Yard.
Experts who have analyzed the security video footage say that Alexis would have been “an easy target” for ARMED defenders. The videos shop that Alexis was not too skilled with his weapons. That proves that if military officers were allowed to carry firearms on base, the killings would have been much less!
Alexis was NOT a weapons’ expert. His naval military experience was serving as an Aviation Electrician’s Mate, certainly not someone who was used to combat readiness!
However, the Naval Yard was designated as a “GUN-FREE ZONE” to be “politically correct.” How different the outcome would have been if naval officers could carry their own weapon?!
So much for the President wanting to claim this crisis as an opportunity to push his gun control issues? And as insiders say, he may use the recent shootings to push gun control via Executive Orders!!
There were two major terrorist shootings and bombings over this past weekend.
Kenyan Army gears up for an assault on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi.
The Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya was attacked by Al-Shabaab terrorists. So far, 72 have been killed. Hundreds were wounded in this vicious anti-civilian attack. Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the Nairobi attack. Their base is Somalia and they are closely linked to al-Qaeda. They claimed they were targeting Non-Muslims.
Their official Twitter read: “Only Kuffar (“infidels”) were singled out for this attack. All Muslims inside the Westgate were escorted out by the Mujahideen (Islamic Holy Warriors) before beginning the attack.”
But here is the important part! The United Kingdom’s DAILY MAIL paper ran a story about a true HERO who had a handgun’ and helped to rescue at least 100 people during the Kenyan Mall attack!
An “anonymous” former British Royal Marine actually went back into the mal several times to rescue people. It is alleged that over 100 people’s lives were saved due to this armed Marine. For security purposes, he has remained anonymous.
100 LIVES SPARED due to the fact that he had a handgun! What does that tell you, Mr. President??!!
He returned, over and over again, to escort frightened civilians outside the mall.
One person reported: “What he did was so heroic. He was having coffee with friends when it happened. He went back in 12 times and saved 100 people. Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.”
He risked his life many times, moving in and out, leading victims to safety.
Here’s our question: Could he be able to do this if he did not have a handgun?
I doubt it, even though he was a Marine. This helps to point out that an armed “good guy” will dispel any situations with the bad guys! This Nairobi Mall shooting points that out quite distinctly!
Certainly, since the “Mall Massacre Hero” was armed, he had the boldness to decide to face terrorist’s risk and rescue victims! Since he was armed, he was able to take calculated chances to save others.
Unfortunately, if someone chooses not carry a gun, this makes their risk be much higher.
We MUST give law-abiding citizens, around the world and here in the United States, the prospect to decide for themselves whether or not to defend themselves.
Mr. President, we despise you for using this horrible Navy Yard shooting as a “Crisis” you refuse to go to waste. Please do not use this tragedy as a platform to thrust upon the American people your ANTI-GUN AGENDA!
I wonder how many families were elevated from heartbreak to ecstasy simply because this HERO had a handgun!
The same could have happened in Newtown, Connecticut.
The same could have happened at the theatre in Aurora, Colorado!
But NO, the president wants to take the guns away from patriotic Americans; which includes ILLEGALLY having Secretary of State John Kerry sign yesterday the United Nations Small Arms Treaty.
Mr. President, a treaty requires TWO-THIRDS of the United States Senators; of which two-thirds are AGAINST the treaty. Why? Please STOP the madness!
