Hunter Biden lied on a Form 4473 to illegally purchase a gun, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison & a $250K fine. His girlfriend then dumped that gun in the trash next to a school. He wasn’t even arrested. Why don’t we enforce existing laws before demanding new ones?
Guns Gays And June — Delaware County Vice Chairwoman Elaine Schaefer during her short speech at Monday’s Media Memorial Day event alluded to the mass shootings in Buffalo and Uldave.
She said we should embrace our common values and consider curtailing our freedoms.
OK, we can work with her. Can she work with us?
The intransigency by gun right defenders comes from the reasonable assumption that for those like Ms. Schaefer it is about banning guns and not about stopping mass shootings, or even mundane weekly shootings in places like Chicago and Philadelphia.
We challenge Ms. Schaefer to make the first step of faith. Simply say, “I support the right of a sane, law-abiding adult to have an AR-15 with a 30-round magazine.”
“Law-abiding” should be self-evident but we can start considering the definitions of “sane” and “adult”.
We can ask how we can create a culture where life is revered. When prominent politicians express support for the literal killing of babies it’s easy to see how certain ungrounded young can acquire a nihilistic philosophy.
How about instead of our schools teaching that we exist by chance and nothing matters once we die, we start teaching that we are here for a purpose and that we face a judgement after death at which we must account for what we have done?
No sane, law-abiding adult supports mass shootings or mundane weekly ones. That’s the common value we share.
Gay Be Not Proud
June is being pushed by the establishment bullies as “Gay Pride Month”. We should love everyone and we can think of a couple of gay journalists who have become heroes of ours, but it’s beyond stupidity to encourage pride in participating in objectively destructive sex acts or rejecting half of humanity and not creating children of your own.
What one should be proud of is standing up to establishment bullies.
Covid Masks Are Dangerous Says Study — A paper by Zacharias Fögen concludes that face mask mandates to stop the spread of Covid actually caused deaths to increase.
The study compared Kansas counties that mandated mask wearing with those that didn’t.
The study says:
A parallelization analysis based on county-level data showed that in Kansas, counties with mask mandate had significantly higher case fatality rates than counties without mask mandate, with a risk ratio of 1.85 (95% confidence interval [95% CI]: 1.51–2.10) for COVID-19-related deaths. Even after adjusting for the number of “protected persons,” that is, the number of persons who were not infected in the mask-mandated group compared to the no-mask group, the risk ratio remained significantly high at 1.52 (95% CI: 1.24–1.72). By analyzing the excess mortality in Kansas, this study determines that over 95% of this effect can solely be attributed to COVID-19.
These findings suggest that mask use might pose a yet unknown threat to the user instead of protecting them, making mask mandates a debatable epidemiologic intervention.
