Focus on the evil; Not the object used for evil

“He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that,” Sitora Yusifiy said of her ex-husband Omar Mateen.

As we all know, Mateen was the nut job who murdered 50 people in night club in Orlando. He targeted the LGBT community and swore his allegiance to ISIS during the attack.  Yet, all we are hearing about is the need for gun control.  I guess the gun control issue is more important to Liberals and the media then the LGBT community.

Where is the outrage for that jackass targeting homosexuals?  Where is the homophobe name calling?  Nope.  The Liberals see an opportunity to make another run at gun control and it’s inconvenient to stand up for the LGBT community right now.  I guess they have wait their turn when Liberals need to use them to brow beat others.

And, of course, Facebook exploded with the predictable dual of left wing and right wing drones posting diatribes for and against gun control.  As if that one issue would have prevented this evil man from executing his plan.

I do not own a gun.  I do not want a gun.  But I do not believe in taking away anyone’s right to own a gun for sporting, hunting or home defense.  However, I do not understand why an average hunter or gun enthusiast needs an assault rifle. That seems like overkill to me if you pardon the pun. Guns are one thing; weapons better suited for attacking our enemies are another.

By the same token, the fools in Washington, DC that want to make nonsensical argument for or against gun control are only creating more noise pollution.  Last time I checked an inanimate object is not able to be deployed without human intervention.  It’s not the gun, it’s the person using the gun that must be stopped.

The gun laws are fine but are immaterial when it comes to criminals.  By the very nature of being a criminal indicates a propensity to not obey our laws.  On the off chance, a deranged individual like Mateen would be prevented from buying a gun, he would probably have carried out his mission by using explosives.  Would the political hacks we call leaders then take to the senate floor to filibuster for stronger explosives control?

The fact is anything can be used as a weapon and a person bent on destroying other people will find a way.  Rather than focus on the weapon I think a more prudent approach is to focus on the person who uses the weapon for evil.

Back to Yusifiy’s comment: If someone would have made a joke like “the beating was justified because the laundry wasn’t done” he would immediately be vilified as a woman-hater, male chauvinist pig, misogynist, and all the words the political correct police prevent us from using by using them to define us.

Donald Trump is maligned for suggesting a temporary ban on Muslims until we figure out a better way to ensure the nation’s safety.  Gun owners are lumped into the same category of a crazed gunman but we are told to not generalize an entire religion based on one nut job.

It seems Liberals have more disdain for those with opposing viewpoints then they do for those who want to kill us.  We are told to understand our enemies rather than hate them.  I may be weird but I find it hard to be cordial to people who want to see me dead.  If given a choice, I’d suggest get them before they get us.

This was an evil man who committed an evil crime.  He chose a gun to carry out his plan but it could have easily been poison, a bomb, fire, or any inanimate object that can be used for destruction.

Terrorism is meant to scare us into submission and create the exact chaos the idiots in Washington are providing by advancing their agendas versus doing their jobs.  Their job is to keep the nation – and the people in the nation – safe.

Let’s focus on the real danger: evil people intent on destroying us.  Leave the agendas and political correctness where it belongs – nowhere.
