On the same day that the Squirrel Hill synagogue shooter killed 11 people, a law abiding gun owner prevented a massacre at a McDonald’s in Birmingham, Alabama

On the same day that a scumbag shot and killed 11 innocent people at a synagogue in Squirrel Hill, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a different scumbag tried to carry out a mass shooting at a McDonald’s in Birmingham, Alabama. But he was stopped by a good guy with a gun. The only person who died was the bad guy.

Here’s another similar comparison:

In January 2015 in France, in response to cartoons that made fun of the Islamic prophet Mohammed, Islamic terrorists shot and killed 12 people.  The police who were sent to stop them were unable to do so, because the police were unarmed.

France’s extensive gun control laws did not stop the bad guys from getting guns. But the country’s extreme anti-gun mentality did prevent the police – the police of all people – from having guns.

Four months later, Islamic terrorists tried to carry out a mass shooting at a draw Mohammed cartoon contest in Texas. However, law abiding gun owners stopped the terrorists. The only people who got killed were the terrorists.

And here’s another comparison:

When Barack Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers.

However, as President, Obama allowed one of his Secret Service agents to shoot an armed man who was outside the White House.

Meanwhile, even the most anti-gun liberals have not called for Obama to be prosecuted for being an accessory to the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

Likewise, even the most anti-gun liberals have not called for an end to armed Secret Service agents protecting ex-President Obama 24 hours a day.

Everyone is against murder.

Why are some liberals against self defense?

And why do these liberals who oppose self defense make an exception when the person being protected is a liberal politician?

    “Why are some liberals against self defense?”

    What idiotic right wing nonsense. Americans are the most heavily armed people in the world. If liberals were against that, then that wouldn’t have been the case for as long as it has. Of course, being the most heavily armed population only means the highest gun death rate in the world, too, so it’s laughable when you say “Everyone is against murder.” Murder is guaranteed within a population with more guns than in any other country, so who the hell cares if “everyone is against murder”? That doesn’t reduce the murder rate. But fewer guns do. The math in countries with much lower gun ownership proves it. Does it eliminate murder? Nothing eliminates murder. The point is to make it less likely for it to happen. In the US, it’s most likely to happen because the math makes it happen.

      Which is strange because while gun ownership has gone up, murder rates have decreased.

        Ya think?

        “Just over half of murders were committed with a firearm in 1961 — the earliest year for which the FBI has data. By 1990, that share was nearly 65 percent. And for the next 24 years, the figure remained somewhere between 63 percent and 70 percent, even as the annual number of murders peaked nationally in the early 1990s. In 2015, the share of firearm murders rose above 70 percent for the first time, and in 2016, that figure rose again, to 73 percent, the highest rate of murders by firearm on record.”
