2A: In 1907, the Winchester Model 1907 first became available. Civilians could buy this semi-automatic, high-powered rifle from a Sears catalogue and have it delivered via US Post.

The 1907 had a high capacity magazine and fired just as fast as an AR15 or AK47 and the bullet (.351 Winchester) was actually larger than those fired by the more modern looking weapons. The ONLY functional difference between the 1907 and a controversial and much feared AR15 is the modern black plastic stock.

In other words, the so-called “assault rifle” that liberals think is so scary is actually 110 years old. It was not originally a weapon of war. Civilians had them long before the government issued them to soldiers and generations of adults have owned and used them responsibly.

If you want to fix the horror of mass shootings, fix the things that have changed for the worse in the last 50 years. Because rifle technology clearly isn’t the problem.

CtH: Or, you could do what these people did and put on a BETO t-shirt and shout obscenities outside an NRA meeting. CLICK

I think this is the meeting they were outside of. CLICK [1:49].

AOC: CLICK [2:11] if you don’t mind wasting two minutes of your precious life listening to burbling that makes VFAUXTUS sound profound. I picked the graphic because she manages to blame all of our society’s problems on traditional values. You know, like the ones our Christian nation were founded upon.

BETO: On May 25th, O’Rourke interrupted Gov. Abbott’s presser about the Uvalde shooting, shouting that the shooting was Abbott’s fault. Predictably, a Democrat strategist called his actions “incredibly brave” while a Republican strategist said, “Beto O’Rourke showed yet again that he is unfit for high office.

CLIMATE DESPAIR: A Vancouver man who does not have a terminal illness wants the Canadian health care system to end his life, because he has debilitating depression due to his fears about the state of the planet. His despair “speaks volumes to the depth of despair inherent in that ideology.” – Kennedy Hall

EASTER MEDITATION: CLICK [3:40] to honor and pray for the victims of the Uvalde shooting. Lord, have mercy on these precious souls and help them to forgive the evil that stole their lives from them. Amen.

GAS PRICES: Last Monday, FAUXTUS praised the high prices of gas as part of “an incredible transition” of the US economy away from fossil fuels. “When it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.

GOOD GAL WITH GUN: On Wednesday night in Charleston, N.C., some people at a graduation party told a guy with an extensive criminal history to stop speeding around the apartment complex, because there were children playing in the area. So, of course, hefetched his semiautomatic rifle and fired into the crowd. We didn’t hear about this mass shooting, because a woman – who was lawfully carrying a pistol – shot and killed the jackass before he could hurt anyone. No charges were filed against her.

HIS BEST LIFE: [3:11] – This is charming!

KARMA: Satan hijacked God’s symbol of hope and made it stand for the queen of all the deadly sins. How appropriate that it has now been increasingly hijacked by “sexual identitarians, critical race theorists, and other progressive forces” who alter it to suit “their peculiar range of psychological idiosyncrasies to the homosexual world.”

MASK MANDATES: A widely cited study concluded that schools without masking requirements were 3.5 times more likely to have COVID-19 outbreaks. But a new study of the same area found no relationship between school masking and pediatric cases!

The new analysis included more school districts and covered a longer period of time. Because, you see, COVID-19 cases had declined quickly right after the first study had cut off and had declined faster in counties without mask mandates. It seems the first researchers cherry-picked their data to please the Left’s political agenda. Imagine that …

MISSISSIPPI: Last Monday, pro-abort vandals spray-painted slogans on the exterior walls and windows of a tiny church in Columbus, Mississippi. The congregation consists of four to five African-American parishioners, all over the age of 60. The pastor says he never discusses abortion or politics in his sermons and doesn’t know why the building was targeted.

OFF LABEL: In an op-ed at The Federalist this week, Sen. Marco Rubio torches liberals for their hypocrisy in opposing the off-label use of ivermectin for COVID-19, while pushing the off-label use of sexual hormones for minors. Clearly, neither position has anything at all to do with public health.

VIOLENCE: CLICK [8:33] to hear Tucker report on the sharp increase in violent crime in America and speculate on the causes.

WASHINGTON: Early Wednesday morning, a member of the radical pro-abortion group “Jane’s Revenge” was caught on video spray-painting “If abortion isn’t safe, you aren’t either” in red outside an Olympia, Washington, Crisis Pregnancy Center. The perp also threw rocks through five of their front windows.

The pregnancy center, which provides free services such as ultrasounds, counseling, adoption referrals, and material assistance, continued to operate Wednesday despite the damage. Repairs, estimated to come to $5,000, have already begun.

Heather Vasquez, director of the pregnancy center, said, “The vandalism that took place was unfortunate, but I think we all felt more saddened for the lost individual who did it.If a woman chooses to come here and get our assistance, she made a choice. So why can’t she go where she wants to go?

Jane’s Revenge” also bragged about vandalizing four churches of four different denominations in the Olympia, Washington area on Sunday. The group said these churches were chosen for their anti-abortion positions. The group’s statement said these churches and “fake anti-abortion ‘crisis pregnancy centers … manipulate mostly poor people into having & keeping children they don’t want or aren’t ready for and marrying whomever impregnated them whether or not that relationship is healthy or safe.” It is their belief that being anti-abortion is synonymous with being “exploitative” and serving the aims of “the patriarchal family, a primary site of violence against women, queers, and children.”

GRAMMY NOTES: I once put dollar bills into three envelopes, labeled them ‘GRACE’ and put them somewhere my daughters would find them only if they cleaned their rooms. As each one left home, I retrieved all three of them. I think there is a spiritual lesson in this somewhere.
