Nobody understands the horror of a madman bent on destruction like law enforcement officers.
But that doesn’t mean the best in blue are willing to get sucked into pushing for gun control.
And you’ll love the brilliant response one Police Chief gave when a radio interviewer tried to blame a recent mall shooting on the gun.
When shots rang out at the Town Square Mall in Boise, Idaho, police officers were on the scene in two minutes flat.
Sadly, the deranged man killed two people and wounded four others before police took him out.
A couple of weeks after the incident Boise Police Chief Ryan Lee was doing an interview on Boise State Public Radio when the host brought up guns.
“Mass shootings. Sad to say, they are not new. That doesn’t make them any less personal or tragic,” the program host said. “But in a community – in a state where firearms are everywhere, how can we keep this type of tragedy from happening?”
Lee responded with a lecture every gun-control advocate needs to hear.
“I think the challenge that we are not talking enough about is what is our mental health infrastructure? What is our ability to connect and contact individuals?” Lee asked.
Then, with incredible tact, he pointed out the one thing every “mass” killer has in common.
“I think you and I, as well-educated people, can sit back and look at this and realize that nobody in their right mental state of mind would engage in an act like this,” Lee argued.
Lee called out the elephant in the room in an era where guns are considered a “public health” issue: poor mental health is a problem long before a violent attack takes place.
He then tore apart the very terminology leftists like to employ so they can use lunatics as examples to push their political agenda.
“The root of the matter is that when we talk about these . . . the verbiage commonly used [is] ‘mass shooting.’ But the reality is that these are ‘mass killing’ events.”
Lee pointed out that vehicles and “a variety of different attack methods” have been used throughout the United States and internationally.
No doubt, he was remembering the SUV that recently plowed into a Christmas parade in Wisconsin and attacks that led to a knife ban in New Zealand.
With that set up, he summed up with an important question for radio listeners to consider: “What can we do to help ourselves and to help our fellow person before they’re in this moment of crisis, where this seems to be the act that they’re going to carry out?”
The truth is that rogue firearms are not behind “mass shootings.”
There are frustrated, unhealthy people pulling the trigger.
Personal responsibility and building healthy relationships as much as possible is likely to do a lot more good than onerous government overreach that doesn’t even address the actual problem.
As an officer, Lee has, no doubt, seen the worst society has to dish out.
Yet, thankfully, he also remembers what he’s sworn to protect.

Bill Maher surprisingly defended Ron DeSantis against one insane media attack
The Democrats and their media comrades are gunning for Ron DeSantis.
They try to turn every move he makes into a scandal.
But Bill Maher surprisingly defended Ron DeSantis against one insane media attack.
Comedian Bill Maher is close to being expelled from the Church of the Left.
The lifelong liberal host of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO has ruffled feathers among leftists for his refusal to go along with every single bit of leftist dogma.
Maher recently pushed back against Democrats’ demonization of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill that Governor Ron DeSantis intends to sign into law.
The bill precludes public schools from participating in classroom discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3, and requires schools to notify parents if their kids are assuming a different gender identity at school.
The Left predictably screeched and called it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, even though the word “gay” does not appear anywhere in the bill and does not preclude teachers from having individual discussions with children.
During a recent episode of his show, Maher challenged leftist New York Times columnist Frank Bruni regarding the bill.
Maher said, “So we’re talking about very young kids who, you know, as always with this stuff, you know this. It’s not like there’s no kernel of truth in that maybe kids that young shouldn’t be thinking about sex at all . . . I don’t think it’s specific. It’s not like you’re not allowed to literally not say ‘gay.’ They just don’t want teachers talking about it; they think it’s the province of parents.”
That is a completely reasonable take, but leftists have turned the bill into some insane attack on gay and transgender children.
Leftists in entertainment joined together and put pressure on Disney to take action against DeSantis.
California Governor Gavin Newsom even tried to lure Disney jobs back into his state.
Disney, the door is open to bring those jobs back to California – the state that actually represents the values of your workers. https://t.co/kbCi7Zgs90
— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) March 13, 2022
Newsom is kidding himself if any companies are itching to pay more in taxes, especially when the far-left Democratic supermajority considers doubling state taxes.
But DeSantis has stood tall against the leftist attacks.
DeSantis said in a recent appearance, “[T]he chance that I am going to back down from my commitment to students and back down from my commitment to parents’ rights simply because of fraudulent media narratives or pressure from woke corporations, the chances of that are zero.”
Maher also recently questioned the talking point that Vladimir Putin didn’t invade during Donald Trump’s Presidency because he was doing Putin’s bidding and there was no need.
Maher is capturing the sentiment of a lot of liberals who are looking around and finding too much insanity on the Left.
The liberal comic has mentioned several times that he has not changed – the Left has changed.
That’s precisely correct.
Liberal positions from 20 years ago have now become “right-wing.”
One terrifying media prediction about Justin Trudeau just came true
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau clearly hates freedom.
That’s why he’s cracked down so hard on the trucker convoy.
And one terrifying media prediction about Trudeau just came true.
Former conservative Arianna Huffington took a hard-left turn and created the Huffington Post.
HuffPo almost exclusively spits out left-wing nonsense, but occasionally some common sense will seep through.
Such was the case when HuffPo published an op-ed from a conservative writer in 2014 that predicted Justin Trudeau would become a fascist ruler.
In the piece titled, “Why Canada Will Become a Dictatorship Under Trudeau,” self-described conservative writer Daniel Dickin foresaw the future eight years ago.
Dickin wrote that the “leader of [the Liberal] party does what he wants, when he wants, and no one dares question him. Would a Prime Minister Trudeau arbitrarily whip the vote and outlaw certain moral questions? Could Prime Minister Trudeau be trusted to make decisions for the good of the country, not just for his personal self-worth? Would Trudeau call in the police to enforce his vision? Let’s hope we never have the opportunity to ask those questions.”
Unfortunately, the world is getting to see what Prime Minister Trudeau is unleashing on the Canadian people.
Trudeau mandated COVID vaccines, and enacted emergency powers to enforce them on truckers.
Then his government froze the bank accounts of people who contributed to the freedom convoy.
Trudeau is the epitome of a fascist globalist elite who thinks he knows what’s best for all of his subjects.
Dickin laid out his case by explaining that Trudeau “is the man who admitted he ‘admires China’s basic dictatorship.’ It wasn’t just a sarcastic comment – he seriously said that he admires the dictatorship because they can get things done quickly. And it’s becoming clearer that Trudeau not only admires the dictatorship – he runs the Liberal Party like one too.”
Trudeau and other left-wing elites have long marveled at the “efficiency” of the Chinese Communist Party.
Barack Obama himself lamented the fact he couldn’t just snap his fingers and bulldoze people’s rights the way that the CCP can.
Trudeau is cut from the same cloth.
In fact, Trudeau was part of the Young Global Leader program administered by the globalist billionaires’ club the World Economic Forum.
Dickin also explained that “[t]he Liberal caucus randomly learned one morning early last year that their leader had come up with a new diktat: that all Liberals would be expected, no, required, to vote pro-choice.”
The fascist warning signs were there for Trudeau eight years ago.
Unfortunately, not enough people were paying attention.
Now he has established a foundation for Democrats in the United States to emulate.
NBC’s Chuck Todd will have you seeing red with this January 6 meltdown
The corporate-controlled media celebrated January 6 like the Super Bowl.
Members of the press hyped up the day in hopes of helping Joe Biden restart his Presidency.
And NBC’s Chuck Todd will have you seeing red with this January 6 meltdown.
Joe Biden delivered one of the ugliest and most divisive speeches in American history on the one-year anniversary of the riot at the Capitol.
Biden singled out Donald Trump and his 74,000,000 voters as threats to democracy, claimed the January melee was worse than the Civil War and called for passing legislation to rig elections so Democrats never lose power.
NBC’s Chuck Todd led the corporate-controlled media parade in gaslighting the American people into thinking that Biden’s dangerous declaration of war on Trump and his supporters amounted to the greatest defense of American democracy since Abraham Lincoln.
Todd declared it was a moral imperative for Biden to launch a deranged rhetorical assault on Trump and his voters.
“I think it was something that he had been avoiding. Look, what was remarkable to me about it is we went a year without him responding to this. He wanted to stay above this. And a lot of people thought this, that if you ignore some of the craziest rantings of the former president, maybe he’ll fade away. Maybe this will wear itself out. One year later, that’s not the case. That’s why this president of the United States, Joe Biden, had to do what he did. He had to do it for history’s sake,” Todd stated.
Todd then outrageously claimed a politician giving a speech where said politician attacked his political opponents and their political agenda was not political.
“I think this was probably easily the most important speech he’s given as president, and I think it’s his best. I’ll tell you this. You think that speech was partisan. Then you believe the former president’s lies. It’s only a partisan speech if you think there’s somehow a truthful dispute here. If you’re pro-democracy and pro-America, it is hard to look at that speech and say, ‘Oh, it’s politically skewed,” Todd added.
Todd’s comments were instructive.
Democrats want to appropriate the word “democracy” to be a catch all for their socialist legislative agenda.
Joe Biden pressures Democrats to blow up the legislative filibuster so Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer can ram a bill into law that destroys any protections against fraud in American elections.
But once Democrats “carve out” an exception for so-called “pro-democracy” legislation, they can nuke the filibuster permanently to pass mass amnesty for illegal aliens, gun bans and confiscation, packing the Supreme Court, and adding new states with permanent Democrat Senate seats.
Todd knows this.
And he supports every bit of it.
That is why Todd went to such lengths to lie to viewers about Biden’s speech not being political.
