A day of breaking news – Jussie Smollett get off free in distraction from Mueller Report, then the Senate Judiciary Committee all but greenlights Red Flag + more
The second in a series of articles – all part of a presentation on Red Flag or ERPO or Extreme Risk Protection Orders pending in New York State or active in other States. Sources used for this series of Articles can be found in the final part of the series. News media are encouraged to use this as a guide on this legislative issue. This portion of the speech/presentation delves into what is Due Process, what are mass shootings and how common are they, and a perspective on how this is presented to the public.
The question remains, why does the national public remain in the dark? Why do the same Dem leaders that demand firearm restrictions actively avoid the result of such restrictions in Chicago?
The majority of Americans accept that a headline, meme, short title, or a summary description by one or more political commentators is all that is needed to understand a Bill or Law in our country. This is almost never accurate. Factually, increases in the number of gun restriction legislations have done nothing to improve the safety of residents of States with the most extreme laws. The Assault Weapons Ban of 2018, HR 5087, Would perhaps exponentially assure the reduction in freedom of all American citizens.
Could Oprah Winfrey be the first Black female president? Maybe. Does she deserve to be? That is a question we are nowhere near knowing the answer to. It’s the question to keep in mind as the hype bandwagon starts to roll.
The logic is therefore, if a firearm looks menacing it should be banned to enhance public safety. Given these actions, addressing the look of a firearm and mere possession as well as the broadest classifications of firearms and documentation of ownership, has the public become safer? No. Empirically, the only answer is no.
Excerpt from Michael Vasquez speech – “Government, especially the American government, is best when it does the least… I am often asked, ‘what is more powerful than a gun?’ The answer should not surprise anyone. It’s an American citizen armed with the Constitution and cloaked in the power of our vote.”
Factually, mass shootings are the least common type of death in America. They are also the least common type of gun-related death.
This isn’t the time for emotional browbeating, laps of “I told you so,” or political opportunism. The job of the President is not to scold the nation in a time of mourning and need. What we need is the leadership that recognizes this is a time of sadness, and praise for heroic acts.
The simple logical conclusion of doubling the unemployment rate, for the 3.8 million Americans, or roughly 2.4% of working Americans, is negative. Doubling the wages of an extreme minority of Americans generally without skills or experience is not the answer. It is just a problem wrapped in an emotional feel-good today and ignore the problem sales slogan.
