The Mass Shooting the Left Doesn’t Care About

In Front Page, Second Amendment by Allen West

It happened again . . . and again, the response from the progressive socialist left and their media accomplices is telling. To what am I referring? The title of this missive tells you all you need to know. Yes, another mass shooting in Chicago. An inner-city black neighborhood, a city controlled by Democrat (socialist) Party with stringent gun control laws. And folks still are killing each other.

As reported by Fox News:

“More than a dozen people were wounded in a shooting on Chicago’s South Side early Sunday at a memorial for someone who died after being shot earlier this year, officials said. At least 13 people were injured — including four who remain critically injured — at a house party in the 5700 block of South May Street in Englewood, Bureau of Patrol Chief Fred Waller told reporters at a press conference. The shooting unfolded around 12:35 a.m. and was an “isolated incident,” according to Waller. He said a dispute occurred inside the home and shots were fired. As people poured out onto the street, more shots were fired.

The bureau of patrol chief said authorities found three scenes with different shell casings connected to the shooting. Waller told reporters that two people of interest were being questioned — one of whom was hospitalized with a gunshot wound. Investigators recovered a revolver from the other person. 

“From outside, definitely there was two different shooters,” Waller said Sunday morning. 

“It looked like they were just shooting randomly at people as they exited the party.”

Those who were wounded in the shooting range in age from 16 to 48 years old, Waller said, adding four people are in critical condition while the others are stable. The party where the dispute occurred was in honor of a would-be carjacker who was shot by a concealed carry license holder in April, the Chicago Tribune reported.”

Just to add a little clarity to this story, this short two-minute video will give a further understanding of the critical nature of the situation in Chicago. There have been some 10K illegal guns seized in Chicago this year. That comes out to one gun every 48 minutes being seized in Chicago. Now, that is not the fault of law-abiding legal gun owners, like the one who shot and killed the would-be carjacker. In the interview with the Chicago Police Union president, he articulates how the Chicago PD is not being supported by the Democrat (socialist) elected officials, who protected Jussie Smollett.

This story is being played out all over America is cities controlled by progressive socialist leftists. We see it here in Dallas. These leftists do not support our law enforcement agents and prefer to confiscate guns from law-abiding Americans, as we see in Virginia. If you read the excerpt from this report, one of the weapons used in this latest mass shooting in Chicago was a revolver . . . not a semi-automatic rifle. Heck, Tiger Woods’ ex-wife assaulted him with a golf club, are golf clubs not considered an “assault weapon?”

I have stated it before, and will reiterate it: take away the most dangerous cities in these United States, Chicago, Baltimore, Albuquerque, Memphis, Detroit, and others from the calculation, there is no issue with gun violence in America. Recently, there was a big raid against MS-13 in Suffolk County (Long Island) New York:

“Authorities said [last] Friday they have dealt an unprecedented blow to the violent MS-13 street gang, announcing charges against nearly 100 of the group’s members and associates on Long Island in the largest takedown of alleged MS-13 members in New York history.

Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy Sini revealed a sweeping indictment that he said “decimated” the gang’s leadership and drug suppliers on Long Island. He described the case as the largest of its kind against MS-13 in New York, where the gang has been blamed for dozens of killings since 2016. The two-year investigation by state and federal authorities thwarted more than a half-dozen murder plots, Sini said, and also provided authorities insights into the gang’s structure and recruiting patterns. The operation was bolstered by an expansive wiretap in which the authorities monitored calls from more than 200 phone numbers.

“MS-13 is a ruthless, savage gang [ahh, Nancy Pelosi said they have a spark of divinity],” Sini said at a news conference, pointing to a machete recovered by law enforcement, the gang’s signature weapon. “They will attempt to recalibrate and send individuals to take up leadership roles in Suffolk County. That’s why we have to stay vigilant.” Authorities said they seized more than 10 kilograms of cocaine, hundreds of fentanyl pills, drug ledgers, long guns and other firearms, and more than $200,000 cash. Those taken into custody included the leaders of nine so-called “cliques” – factions of MS-13.”

Now, according to Bernie Sanders last week at the Democrat (socialist) Party presidential debate — the least-viewed yet — he would be providing free taxpayer benefits to those here in our America illegally. I guess that would include MS-13 gang members, Bernie? Consider the leftist-embraced policy of open borders, this is what we get on our streets. Useful idiots — like those in Virginia — want to disarm and confiscate legal weapons from law-abiding American gun owners?

This is not about Donald Trump, it is about America, freedom, liberty, and individual rights. It is about whether or not we can be safe, secure, and able to protect and defend ourselves. Click To Tweet

Ladies and gents, we are heading into the year of clear vision, 2020. Only someone who is ideologically blind, and stuck on stupid, would support the party of the jackass. As we go into 2020, I intend to make it all brutally clear. The choice is simple. This is not about Donald Trump, it is about America, freedom, liberty, and individual rights. It is about whether or not we can be safe, secure, and able to protect and defend ourselves. The left is telling us that their quest for power and control is more important than your safety. These deranged progressive socialists will disarm you, turn you into a sheep, a victim, all the while allowing these criminal gangs, domestic terrorists, to freely roam our streets and threaten us all.

Time to choose.
