Nearly all the news reports of Wednesday’s DC Baseball Shooting got the story wrong. Mainstream media said that two hero cops saved fleeing Congressmen from slaughter, but that’s not the whole truth.
Mind you, part of what I’m going to say will sound political. But shooting Republicans is itself political, and evil. So I’m not really in the mood to hear people ask me to leave the politics out of this issue. And I’m certainly not in the mood to hear the Left ask me to leave the politics out of this issue.
So let’s correct the record: there were three heroes on Wednesday:
- the two cops, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, who shot DC Baseball Shooter James Hodgkinson before he killed more people;
- and the 2nd Amendment itself, which allowed those officers to have weapons in the first place.
I don’t apologize for the politics. It’s just the truth.
And I’m not the only one who thinks so.
The heroic actions of cops who blew away the gunman who opened fire on Republican lawmakers Wednesday proves Americans should not be hampered by stricter gun laws, [according to] retired U.S. Navy SEAL Carl Higbie.
“The Second Amendment is a fundamental right . . . [but] laws that are so harsh on guns make owning guns virtually illegal.
“I want to point out to the American people that guess what stopped that shooter today? Two people with guns. Forget the fact that they were police, but two individuals with guns stopped that shooter.
“If there had not been guns there, that shooter would have created a lot more damage, and additionally the American people don’t have bodyguards. They don’t have security details.”
It’s beyond obvious that Higbie has a point.
The evidence couldn’t be clearer – guns stopped Hodgkinson. Guns did. Not sit-ins, or protestors, or paid protestors, or Congressional hearings. Guns did it.
Liberals are really fond of everything in that list but guns. I have a hard time believing they actually want to protect Americans.
Higbie had words for the Left, too.
“You have Kathy Griffin holding up the severed head of the president of the United States – this is the left, and the left is encouraging this. I put that blood on their hands.”
He’s not wrong.
But Higbie’s biggest Mic Drop is his explanation of exactly what is wrong with American gun control:
“You’re not going to get rid of all [guns], and the only people who’s going to be affected by that are good law-abiding citizens. So, you start taking guns away from American people, you are taking away their right to protect themselves, shame on you.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
