Biden calls for assault weapons ban in wake of Colorado and Virgina shootings.

The FBI reported 61 mass shooting incidents in 2021 resulting in 103 deaths. In comparison, the Centers for Disease Control has reported there were greater than 30,000 fentanyl overdose deaths in 2021.

That is approximately 29,897 more deaths due to fentanyl overdose than deaths due to mass shootings. Yet the illegal flow of fentanyl, across the southern boarder, goes on unabated by the Biden Administration.

The question begs: What is the Biden Administration’s true agenda?

Regardless, there are obviously misdirectd priorities in the Biden Administration.

Florida – Two children shot during Nassau County road rage incident, fathers are charged with attempted murder

Two children were rushed to the hospital after being shot Saturday on U.S. 1 after their fathers were shooting at each other during a road rage incident.

October 10, 2022

NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. — A 5-year-old girl was shot in the leg and a 14-year-old girl was shot in the back Saturday while riding in separate vehicles on U.S. 1 in Callahan just after 6 p.m. Their injuries were the result of their fathers shooting at each other during a road rage incident, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said Monday during a news conference.

“What is scarier than one crazy driver with a gun? Two crazy drivers with a gun,” Leeper said.

The drivers the sheriff was referring to are William Hale, 36, and Frank Allison, 43.Both men are charged with attempted murder. They didn’t know each other before the incident that a witness described as a “cat and mouse game,” Leeper said. The witness told a 911 operator that the men were driving erratically and “brake-checking” each other. That’s when a driver gets in front of another vehicle and applies the brakes.

The sheriff said a black Dodge Ram with five occupants driven by Hale of Douglas, Ga. pulled up along side the grey Nissan Murano driven by Allison of Callahan and began shouting at him to pull over.

The right front passenger in the Nissan put her hand out of the window and “flipped off” the Dodge Ram with her middle finger, Leeper said. A plastic water bottle was then tossed from the Dodge Ram into the Nissan.

Allison then grabbed his Sig Saur 45mm handgun and fired one shot at Hale’s truck before speeding away, Leeper said. The bullet went through the right rear door hitting the 5 year old in the leg.

Hale told authorities he realized his daughter was shot after Allison sped off. Hale pursued the Nissan and began firing several shots from his Glock 43 9mm handgun out of the driver’s window with his left hand, Leeper said adding that the shooter emptied the clip.

Three rounds hit the Nissan with one of the bullets going through the rear of the car striking a 14-year-old girl in the back causing her lung to collapse.

Deputies brought him to the Volusia County Branch Jail and he was given a bond of $40,000.

Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a moral plea against looting that appears to have some firepower behind it.

Updated: New & Revised (9-30-2022) : Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a moral plea against looting that appears to have some firepower behind it.

Florida Alert!!! YOU LOOT — WE SHOOT!

DATE: July 7, 2020
TO: USF & NRA Members and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer
USF Executive Director
NRA Past President

By Marion P. Hammer

Record numbers of firearms have been purchased over the past couple of months in Florida and around our nation. Many of the firearms were – and are – purchased by people who never thought they would want or need a gun. Firearms training classes are full and booked for months ahead. Florida Tax Collectors are reporting huge increases in the number of Concealed Weapon or Firearm License applications being processed locally.

Around the country, professional rioters and violent protesters have been destroying private property.

These acts of violence are soon followed by looters who help themselves to what’s left. These are not acts of civil disobedience; these are planned and orchestrated acts of domestic terrorism.

People around the nation are getting fed up and are buying guns, getting trained and are preparing to protect what they have worked hard to achieve.

We’ve seen people wake up and take responsibility for themselves and their property before.

In August 1992, Hurricane Andrew hit Miami/Dade County, Florida. The destruction was massive. During the news coverage in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, a warning from residents to looters emerged. Images flashed across TV screens on national TV and the message was clear. Hand scrawled on a piece of building debris: “You Loot – We Shoot!” Spray painted on garage doors: “You Loot – We Shoot!” Painted across the front of damaged homes: “You Loot – We Shoot!”

Hurricane Andrew had damaged and destroyed much of what Dade County residents owned, and they did not intend to lose anything else to looters and roving gangs.

Throughout the television coverage of the plight of hundreds of thousands of residents left homeless by – what at the time was – this nation’s worst hurricane disaster, we saw many people refusing to leave the rubble they once called home. They were armed and standing guard to protect what little they had left. There was even a report from Miami of a police officer on local TV telling residents if they needed security, they’d better get a gun – police couldn’t help them.

Even after the National Guard arrived, residents reported to the media that they still had to protect themselves because when the sun went down, the soldiers disappeared and residents were once again on their own.

During this TV coverage the overwhelming majority of firearms that residents were using for protection were semi-automatic firearms – firearms would be banned as so-called “assault weapons” by gun ban organizers.

Such tragic disasters often make folks open their eyes to the importance of firearms for protection and the outrageous restriction of gun control laws – particularly waiting period laws and gun ban laws. When you need a firearm for protection you can’t wait and you need the firearm best suited to stop gangs of intruders!

Those whose anti-gun philosophy is manufactured in air-conditioned offices or in homes with electronic security systems and iron gates should take heed. When their anti-gun counterparts in Miami, became victims of a disaster, they quickly had a new perspective on the importance of the Second Amendment’s guarantee of the right of the People to keep and bear arms.

Hurricane Andrew is not the only time Floridians have stepped up to protect their families and their homes with firearms following hurricane disasters; it just hasn’t been widely reported in the anti-gun, anti-self-defense media.

Today, the ice cold reality of self-reliance settles in when people observe professional protesters rioting with violence and destruction. That’s why they are buying guns.

NO WARNING SHOTS – Shoot to stop the threat

Florida mail carrier mauled to death by loose dogs. Failed warning shots fired to stop attack.

A Florida postal carrier is dead after being mauled by 5 dogs

“One neighbor brought his firearm along and fired several shots in the air in an attempt to disrupt the attack.” “That was unsuccessful.

August 23, 2022

A U.S. Postal Service carrier who was attacked by five dogs in Putnam County, Florida, has died, a sheriff’s official said.

Pamela Jane Rock, 61, died at a hospital Monday night, the day after the vicious attack, which a neighbor tried to stop by firing into the air, sheriff’s Col. Joseph Wells said Tuesday at a news conference.

“One neighbor brought his firearm along and fired several shots in the air in an attempt to disrupt the attack,” Wells said. “That was unsuccessful.

Officers applied tourniquets to stem the loss of blood, but during the drive to the hospital, Rock went into cardiac arrest.

Neighbors and the dogs’ owner pulled the animals off Rock after they heard her scream, he said. The animals were seized and will be euthanized. Additional details about the dogs, including size or breed, were not provided.

Rock’s niece told NBC affiliate WTLV of Jacksonville that Rock had recently completed training with the Postal Service and was in a postal vehicle when it broke down Sunday in a neighborhood about 65 miles south of Jacksonville.

She said that her aunt was horrifically wounded and that doctors amputated an arm in their attempt to save her.

Animal control officials had visited the dogs’ home at least twice in the last three years, Wells said.

Commissioner Nikki Fried Doubles Down – Again Calls for Background Checks on Ammunition Purchases

“I’m a gun owner, and, . . . there are reasonable steps we can take that don’t infringe on Second Amendment rights – like expanding background checks and red-flag laws, closing loopholes, requiring background checks for ammunition purchases, banning large capacity magazines . . .”

In Orlando, July 31, 2022 . . . .

Tallahassee, Fla. — Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried, an independently-elected member of the Florida Cabinet, issued the following statement in response to the news of a mass shooting in downtown Orlando last night that injured seven people:

“My heart goes out to the Orlando community after last night’s mass shooting. The people of Orlando and of our state have been traumatized by gun violence and mass shootings for far too long. When will Republicans finally stand up and say that enough is enough? Our state needs to pass comprehensive gun safety measures so our communities no longer have to live in fear and terror.

“I’m a gun owner, and I know I’m not the only one who thinks there are reasonable steps we can take that don’t infringe on Second Amendment rights – like expanding background checks and red-flag laws, closing loopholes, requiring background checks for ammunition purchases, banning large capacity magazines, and keeping assault weapons off our streets. Taking steps to stop terrorism in our communities should not be controversial.”

There is no mention in the Second Amendment about an individual right to own and bear arms. The purpose of the Second Amendment was to placate those former colonies (and soon to be States), who feared the potential of a federal government acting like the King they just overthrew. The bulk of the military that fought the Revolutionary War was state militias (the modern equivalent of which is the National Guard) acting under the command of federal forces.
