    It was several years ago, during the usurper's time in the White House, that I reported on where the abundance of gun violence took place, including mass shootings.In another report, it was discovered that the majority of gun violence takes place in large metropolitan areas, and much of that happens in poor neighborhoods.Additionally, more than 90% of mass shootings have occurred in government-regulated, but unconstitutional, "gun free zones."All of these so-called "gun control" measures are only aiding to promote full on gun confiscation and gun prohibition, except for guns being in the hands of government. Most recently, ABC News has...
  • Is Demon Possession Real?

    11/10/2017 7:35:18 AM PST · by pinochet · 146 replies
    Many people have tried to explain away the mass shootings in Texas and Las Vegas as mental illness. I can assure you that 99.9 percent of mentally ill people could never kill anyone. People are ruling out a spiritual component to these shootings. The mass shooters reflect the classic behavior one should expect of armed people who are demon-possessed. I invite Freepers who are mature Christians, and who have developed the ability to do spiritual discernment, to comment on this issue. Then there is the issue of Judge Roy Moore of Alabama, the most committed Christian to be a Senate...

    A recent surge in street violence that left six people shot in Dorchester and Roxbury has fed-up residents bracing for more bloodshed ahead of Halloween and city officials vowing to put more cops on the ground in the Hub’s high-risk neighborhoods. In what Mayor Martin J. Walsh described as a series of unrelated shootings, police say six people — three of them young women — wound up in Hub hospitals with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds late Friday night and early yesterday morning.

    (1) Everything Kills -- “Guns are uniquely lethal.”Last year, a Muslim terrorist with a truck killed 86 people and wounded another 458. Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, the Tunisian Muslim killer, had brought along a gun, but it proved largely ineffective. The deadliest weapon of the delivery driver was a truck. Mohammed, who was no genius, used it to kill more people than Stephen Paddock would with all his meticulous planning in Vegas. Do we need truck control? Deadlier than the truck is the jet plane. Nearly 3,000 people were killed on September 11 by terrorists with a plan and some box cutters....

The relentless bashing and public criticism of urban cops by the activist BLM (Black Lives Matter), the liberal press+ liberal civic leaders have had the unintended consequence of producing a huge increase in black on black killings in certain visible minority cities....

    Can ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ Stop the Next Shooting? In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, Mark Kelly, husband of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, herself a shooting victim, said, “All we're hearing is thoughts and prayers. Thoughts and prayers are important. They are not enough. Your thoughts and prayers aren't going to stop the next shooting.” Is he right? Yes and no. Allow me to explain. First, Mr. Kelly has every right to speak out against gun violence, since his own wife was almost killed by a demented gunman. I do not minimize his convictions. Second, I agree that praying...

    Sacramento approves $1.5 million to tackle gun violence 9/01/17 | by Jennifer Cruz The city of Sacramento is tackling gang violence. Critics claim the council just voted unanimously to pay folks not to commit crimes. So what's the deal? We spoke with the Director of the Mayor's Gang Prevention and Intervention Task Force back in March. We asked just how big a deal is gang violence here in Sacramento? It's a part of an 18-month program where those involved get job-training and mentoring. If they complete six months successfully, they could also receive up to $1,000 per month for nine...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — A mother’s eyes are swollen shut from crying after the fatal shooting of a 9-year-old boy in the East Side neighborhood on the Far South Side, a community activist said. Gustavo Garcia was in an SUV with a 31-year-old man at 11:13 p.m. Friday, traveling west in the 3500 block of East 97th Street, when a gray car pulled up next to them and someone inside opened fire, Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

    More than 100 people were shot in Chicago over the course of one of the bloodiest Fourth of July weekends in the city's recent history. Police in Chicago are conducting a "very comprehensive review" after 15 people were killed and 86 others injured in shootings between late Friday afternoon and early Wednesday, the Chicago Tribune reports. "The mood here is frustration," Chicago Police Department chief spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi told the Tribune. "It's perplexing. We deployed some very successful tactics over the Memorial Day weekend," he added. Police said their review would include analysis of whether an audio system that pinpoints...

    Police said 17 people were hurt in a shooting early Saturday after a dispute at a downtown Little Rock nightclub. The city's police chief said officers suspect multiple people fired weapons but that the incident was not terror-related. The shooting happened at the Power Ultra Lounge, a club in a two-story building downtown about 1 mile (1.61 kilometer) east of the state Capitol. Police cordoned off the block as crime-scene technicians gathered evidence from inside and outside the club. Glass from the club's second story windows littered the ground, along with empty drink cups. "We do NOT believe this incident...

    The wife of a gunman who shot and wounded a top Republican congressman and several others says her husband went to Washington, D.C. because he wanted to work on tax policy. Sue Hodgkinson spoke to reporters Thursday outside her Illinois home. She says she didn't know a lot about what her husband, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, did between January and March because she was busy with her job at a tax firm. But he sold items from his businesses and told her he was going to Washington. She learned about the shootings while at work Wednesday during a telephone call from...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski implied on Thursday morning that President Donald Trump’s rhetoric was somehow ultimately responsible for the attempted assassination of Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday. While halfheartedly acknowledging a myriad of other possible factors that may have contributed to the toxic political climate (save increasingly extreme mainstream liberal rhetoric), Brzezinski made it clear that she believes — and therefore wishes her audience to believe — that Trump’s arrival on the political scene was the spark that set America ablaze. "I think that very carefully we have to talk about the added dynamic here," Brzezinski...
