A target-rich environment for mass murderers and politicians

Mark Leudtke

Once again, we mourn the dead in the wake of spectacular government failure, this time in Orlando. But politicians don’t mourn. Like serial killers, politicians tend to be psychopaths. Even government’s Smithsonian Magazine admits, “… you don’t have to be an ax-wielding murderer to possess some of the classic psychopathic traits: lack of remorse and empathy, a sense of grandiosity, superficial charm, conning and manipulative behavior and refusal to take responsibility for one’s actions.” That’s as accurate a description of a successful politician as you’ll find.

The bodies of the dead weren’t cold before both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump tried to capitalize on the atrocity. Trump called to ban immigration by Muslims and Clinton called for a ban on scary-looking rifles. The two rulers vying to become supreme ruler are fully engaged in self-interest. There’s only one problem: neither policy would have prevented the murders. The security guard and cop wannabe, the son of a Muslim immigrant, was born in America, and had scary-looking rifles been banned, he would have purchased a different rifle and used it to murder en masse.

This is typical of rulers. They promote self-serving agendas under the guise of solving problems, but the policies inevitably make the problems worse. That’s because they’re really designed to raise money, buy votes and enrich cronies, not solve problems.

Equally self-serving President Obama also immediately politicized the mass murder, but while Trump and Clinton want to become president, Obama wants to rewrite his atrocious legacy. He’s in charge of the FBI, which investigated and radicalized the murderer for 10 months in 2013. He’s in charge of the NSA, which has a record of every phone call and electronic communication the murderer made but was too busy spying on you and me to stop the attack. He’s in charge of the ATF, which has a record of the murderer’s purchase of firearms the week before the murders. Yet Obama’s flunkies failed to stop this attack.

Furthermore, the murderer pledged allegiance to ISIS, which is funded, supplied and armed by Obama’s CIA flunkies and his allies in Turkey, Saudi Arabia and UAE. Worse for Obama, the murderer had a history of attending the gay club he targeted and using a gay dating app, suggesting he was gay, one of Democrats’ protected groups.

Obama is scrambling to blame anybody for the murders but his government and the murderer. He sounds discombobulated because this murder exposes rifts in the Democrat coalition. Democrats and their accomplices in the press are fumbling to create a narrative that doesn’t offend any group in the coalition.

But the common thread that holds the Democrat coalition together is authoritarianism. All Democrat groups want to use government coercion against everybody else, so regardless of the complexities of the story, the leftist mainstream media will reduce this tragedy to a misguided call for more gun control despite it enabling this attack.

Florida bans guns in nightclubs, turning them into target-rich environments for mass murderers. You don’t have to be a genius to understand disarming people makes them less safe. Logic tells us people who can shoot back are safer than people who can’t. Experience confirms that. That’s why cops carry guns. That’s why you never hear of a mass murder at an NRA event. It’s why crime falls everywhere firearms laws are liberalized.

It’s equally obvious banning guns doesn’t stop criminals from using them to kill people. Banning guns has never been about making the people safer. It’s always about controlling the people and protecting rulers from them. It’s ironic how leftists are always on the side of the ultra-rich rulers they claim to despise and against the common people they claim to support. That’s why Joseph Stalin called leftists useful idiots.

The greatest tragedy is dozens of victims waited for the shooter to reload and boast on the phone then shoot them. They didn’t charge him while he reloaded, let alone immediately. They were victimized in government schools, brainwashed to passively wait to die instead of fighting back, before being murdered.

According to The New York Times, dogs, metal detectors and searches will be at every public event because of the attack. This was happening already to further oppress people, not to make them safer. For example, the Dayton Air Show was already planning to disarm spectators, forcing them to rely on the same government that failed in Orlando for security.

Mass murders will keep happening until good people demand unrestricted carry of firearms.
