Paris is Here

If your first reaction to a terrorist attack on US soil is to call for more gun control then it's clear you're not serious about stopping terrorism or protecting the American people.

Less than one month ago, following the terrorist attacks in Paris I wrote a piece that predicted exactly what we are now seeing in response to the recent terror attack in San Bernardino, California:

When one of the savages that we have let inside the gates does find his way into a crowded mall, or a theater, or an elementary school and the death toll eclipses Paris, the hew and cry for gun control will be deafening. There will be no talk of immigration or ‘refugees' or the insane policies that put Americans at risk. You and I will be blamed. After all, as the brain-dead clowns at Everytown For Gun Confiscation Safety pointed out, the attack in Paris was gun violence, not terrorism.

When Paris comes here, the assault on the Second Amendment will make the days post-Newtown look like Romper Room. Innocent Americans whose only “crime” will be owning a gun or having a permit to carry it, will be blamed for the attack. You and me. Not the terrorists. Not the politicians who made it possible.”

The only thing I got wrong was the body count.

In less than two weeks Democrats in the Senate attempted to resurrect the Manchin-Toomey background checks bill and the “Assault Weapons” Ban, as amendments to an unrelated piece of legislation. The usual RINO Republicans voted with Democrats.

The New York Times published a front page editorial calling for wholesale, nationwide gun confiscation.

The New York Daily News in a front page headline and Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy on Twitter scoffed at Republicans who offered their thoughts and prayers for the victims of the San Bernardino attack.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch (aka Eric Holder in drag) suggested in a speech that this horrible crime was a “wonderful opportunity” to finally do something about guns.

Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera came out on Twitter and said that the Second Amendment was “stupid.”

Every liberal news outlet, gun-ban groups like Everytown, and Democrat politicians accused the NRA of supporting terrorism for opposing legislation to ban the sale of firearms to American citizens who are on the government's secret “No-fly List.” Not actual criminals, convicts, or terrorists, just suspects on a secret government list.

President Obama called on Congress to pass a law doing just that in speech to the nation, saying “What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to buy a semi-automatic weapon? This is a matter of national security.”

Paris is here. We all saw it coming. The President and the Democrats are more concerned about defending Muslims, maintaining their failed policies, and shamelessly seizing any opportunity to attack our rights. It's only been a month since Paris. The San Bernardino killers were vetted, screened, and allowed into the country. They bought guns legally. Neighbors did nothing for fear of being called bigots. The FBI has warned that ISIS is active in the US and there may be over 250 agents already in the country. More attacks are sure to come. And we can expect more of the same in response: Islam is the religion of peace. ISIS is not Islamic. We need to get rid of guns.

We have just over a year to go before Obama is gone, but the fight for our rights never ends and the next 12 months are likely to be the most dangerous we have ever seen. The President has no intention of defending or protecting us, and with each incident he and his party are more and more determined to leave us even more vulnerable to the barbarians that we are bringing inside the gates.
