This Sunday, we will be at the Lake Highlands Shooting Center in Dallas for a celebration of Texas Independence Day, March 2nd. The event is being sponsored by the Lake Highlands Republican Women’s Club. Why not? Women are the fastest-growing demographic of legal, law-abiding gun owners in America.
Consider this: the Lone Star State of Texas is the number one state in these United States of America for human and sex trafficking. Dallas and Houston are the top two cities for human and sex trafficking, thanks to the open borders supporters. We also have issues with dangerous crimes and gang activity in both of those cities as well.However, as we have shared with y’all previously, you have the Bloomberg funded anti-gun groups, Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action, announcing $8M to support gun control candidates in Texas. The progressive socialist left, its ideological agenda is built on a simple premise, gun control is people control.
Now, these delusional, deranged leftists have no problem asserting that premise openly. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon:
“The leader of a gun-control group decried efforts to sell firearms to minorities and women as “incredibly dangerous” on Monday. “Gun makers are softening their image to ‘put a better face in front of people’ & ‘ramp up its appeal to women, children and members of minority groups,'” Igor Volsky, executive director of gun-control activist group Guns Down America, said in a tweet. Volsky, who is also a former vice president of the Center for American Progress, was commenting on a New York Times story about firearms marketing.
“That’s right,” Volsky continued. “Gun makers are increasingly advertising to WOMEN, CHILDREN & MINORITY COMMUNITIES. Firearm industry realizes that to survive into the future it must ‘broaden its reach beyond the aging white men who have been its core customers’—and so they’re now trying to sell their products to other demographics. This is incredibly dangerous.”
The comments caused a backlash among female and minority gun-rights advocates who said Volsky’s rhetoric harks back to the racist history of gun control in America. Maj Toure, head of the Black Guns Matter Tour that provides firearms training to African Americans in urban areas, told the Washington Free Beacon Volsky was “uninformed” about past attempts to deny black Americans their Second Amendment rights.
“The overt racism of gun control rears its ugly head again,” Toure said. “Imagine being either so uninformed on the racist roots of gun control or so full of yourself that you would not only think but also believe that melinated Americans owning guns would be incredibly dangerous. I wonder what he thinks of the thousands of melinated law enforcement officers and military personnel that carry firearms to protect life as well?”
Female activists also took issue with Volsky’s patronizing language. Robyn Sandoval, executive director of the shooting league A Girl and A Gun, said increasing gun ownership among women promotes safety.
“Self-defense is a basic human right regardless of gender or ethnicity,” Sandoval told the Free Beacon. “To suggest that minorities and women are less capable of making good decisions or do not have the same need to keep their families safe is condescending and irrational.”
At a time when the left in America supports criminal illegal immigrants and gangs proliferating our streets. At a time when the left is supporting bail reform policies that are releasing dangerous criminals back onto the streets. At a time when the left is allowing violent leftist gangs, such as Antifa, to roam our streets, masked, attacking innocent people. At a time when our urban centers are becoming killing fields because of rampant violence — see Chicago — these leftists are decrying law-abiding Americans from being able to defend themselves? Doggone, all people are seeking to do is protect themselves from the absurd, truly dangerous, policies of the progressive socialist left.Maj Toure is right, the Democrat party is neck-deep in having a history of racism and gun control when it comes to the black community. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was denied a firearm carry permit by white Democrats in 1959, in Alabama. The Supreme Court case, McDonald v. Chicago 2010, was about a Black man, Army veteran, Otis McDonald who wanted to be able to protect himself in his own home from gang violence. McDonald won the case, yet Chicago still continues to enforce strict gun control laws…and has a rampant, dangerous, murder and gun violence problem.
What type of useful idiot is this Volsky fella to denounce women being able to defend themselves, especially against the very predators leftist policies are allowing to be released? Look at NYC, where the Mayor is an avowed socialist, and how criminals are being set free to terrorize the people, who live under stifling gun control laws. Pure people control.
The left believes they can replicate what they did in Virginia, running gun control candidates to flip the state government there. In New Mexico, the leftist Governor is threatening county sheriffs, requiring they obey her edicts, red flag laws, or resign. We know that in Virginia, 91-95 counties declared themselves sanctuary counties for the Second Amendment. All of this is happening across America, and the left believes they can do it in Texas because the left wants to control people. That can’t be done as long as people are armed, and can defend themselves. We can clearly see that demonic desire pertains to blacks, Hispanics, and women.
We are in the throes of an ideological civil war in America. We hear the front running Democrat presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, another avowed socialist, talking about a revolution. Bernie Sanders has offered praise to every freaking socialist dictator of our time. Every one of them disarmed the people, then executed and imprisoned dissenters, and gained control of the people. Same ol’ tune, and it is now being sung in our America, here in Texas.
Hmm, Igor Volsky, sounds rather Bolshevik to me, but Mr. Volsky, I am a proud American black man. I am a law-abiding, legal American gun owner, exercising my constitutional Second Amendment right. I am a Board Member of the National Rifle Association, as well as Life Member of the Texas State Rifle Association, Dallas Safari Club, and Gun Owners of America. Being armed, and well-armed, Sir, along with being well-trained on my firearms, yep a minority, is only “incredibly dangerous” to socialists like yourself who are members of the Party of the Jackass.
Let me remind you of a couple of pertinent quotes Mr. Igor Volsky, “Don’t Tread on Me” (the American Revolution), and “Come and Take It” (the Texas Revolution)…in Greek, “Molon Labe.”
