Our dear friend Charlie Daniels, amazing country legend and outspoken patriot, took to his website following the terrorist attack in Orlando to share his insight and fears of where our country is now headed.
With his trademark style and charm, he eloquently points out the ignorance of the reaction from this administration and how this tone-deaf response to those who wish us ill will only serve to enable them to kill more innocent Americans.
I fear that the recent attack on the nightclub in Orlando, Florida signals a new direction in America’s struggle with radical Islamic terror, and something that our president has neither the stomach nor the motivation to deal with.
The lone wolf method of terror requires neither a trip abroad to an ISIS training camp nor extensive instruction about how to build and detonate sophisticated explosive devices. It just requires a martyr mentality, an adequate weapon and the willingness to commit mass murder.
To listen to the media one would think that there were no gun laws at all in this country while there are enough laws in place to paper the south wall of the Grand Canyon and buying a gun legally requires filling out long forms and background checks, and let’s not forget, the strict gun laws in Paris did nothing to prevent 89 people from being gunned down by terrorists in a theater late last year.
Our president’s first reaction is, of course, more gun control, as if passing more gun laws that would effect only the law abiding citizens would actually take the guns out of the hands of the terrorists.
Dream on, Mr. President.
He had been on the FBI’s radar not once but twice and because they could find no concrete evidence to charge him, they had to drop him from the list, something that should never have happened, not when it comes to terrorism, because where there is smoke there is fire, or at least is likely to be at some time in the future and is at least worth keeping a running tally of anyone suspected of being involved in terrorist activity.
(The shooter) should have never been able to purchase a gun and if the government agencies that are supposed to protect us from such things had not grown so politically correct, he would not have been able to purchase one legally.
And therein lies the problem, most terrorists, gang members and various and sundry other criminals don’t even try to buy their guns legally, they buy weapons out of the trunk of a car or a room in some cheap hotel, no background checks, no paper work, no way to prove that the gun is in their possession.
Amen, Charlie! For all their preaching on “common sense gun laws” and the need for “universal background checks”, the bottom line is that criminals don’t follow the laws that are already on the books and our government doesn’t enforce them either.
So if Dems really want to pass “new gun laws” they should start following the ones they’re currently ignoring. They’re new to them.
