So, I wake up this morning to the bad news from the Pulse nightclub in orlando florida. Took mom to visit dad at the nursing home, and when I got back I heard President Obama once again not mentioning radical islamic hatred but he did take the opportunity to use this horrible event to push for more restrictive gun laws. So, since he chose to dance in the blood to advance his political agenda, I feel no compunction about pushing back against his political agenda.

Facts on the ground are slim. The media pack of giggling jackals are endlessly repeating the few things known and then bringing in alleged experts to speculate endlessly to build these logical castles in the sky out of their own imagination. Surprise surprise, they come to the conclusion that the country needs more and stricter laws put onto the books that advance their cause.

We know the bad guy brought a rifle of some kind. Most accounts call it an AR15 or something similar, or just call it an assualt rifle or assault weapon. Somehow got into the club with it. Didn't they have security at the door, or did he shoot his way through them? Called 911 claiming credit in the name of ISIS for his actions. SHot many many rounds into the defenseless victims on the dance floor, until he was confronted with the lone good guy with a gun in the club. Gunfire was exchanged and then bad guy retreated to the bathroom, acquiring hostages along the way. Police arrived and a couple hours of standoff, then SWAT assaults and bad guy ends up dead on the floor.

I'll continue this later, my alarm is calling me to go to work.
Back from work. To Continue.

The nightclub, as a venue that derives more than 50% of it's income from alcohol, is a no go zone for ordinary decent citizens with concealed handgun permits. Even though employees, who shouldn't be drinking on the job, and the designated drivers, who are enjoying their reduced price soda pops, are just as defenseless as the intoxicated patrons. So the only citizens who could legally carry their concealed handguns on the premises are police officers. Which is one of the many reasons that nightclubs like this love to hire police officers as part time bouncers/security. When the feces strikes the rotary impeller, they are a good guy with a gun who is already present on the premises.

Hmmm.... How many of these mass shootings happen in venues that by law or by property owner fiat are some form of gun free zone? Nearly every one. It's almost like the murderous lunatics seek out locations where they know the chances of encountering an intended victim who is armed with a much more equal level of weapon are much lower.

SO, more and more gun control laws don't seem to be reducing the level of violence. Chicago, LA, and NYC have the strictest gun control laws in the country, and their violence levels are a high as ever. So lets try outlawing the mandatory disarmed victim zones in a couple of states and see how that works out.

Also, it seems that one of the rumored deceased is a friend of a friend. Sadness.
