Trump Shuts Down Gun Grabbers Who Want More Gun Control After Va. Shooting

It didn’t take long for the gun control lobbyists, including the White House, to call for more gun control after two journalists were shot and killed on live TV Wednesday in Roanoke, Virginia.

“It breaks my heart every time you read about or hear about these kinds of incidents,” President Obama said. “What we know is that, uhm, the number of people who die from, uhh, gun-related, uhh, incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.”

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump took a different route and suggested that more gun control wouldn’t have stopped the shooting.

“This is a really sick person. This isn’t a gun problem, this is a mental problem,” Trump said to CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “If you tried to do it, the bad guys would have them… and the good folks would abide by the law – they’d be hopeless, and it would just be hopeless situation for them.”

Mr. Trump later took note of Chicago’s strict gun laws and argued that even with tough legislation, Chicago has “people getting killed all the time.”

Trump: “And they have by far the toughest gun laws in the country, so it’s not just a question of the laws…”

Cuomo: “So..”

Trump: “It’s really the people.”

Ben Carson Hits Back Hard Against CNN’s Secular-Progressive Movement

In an unfamiliar fashion, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson reared his hackles in a CNN interview after Jim Acosta took Carson’s comments about using drones at the border out of context.

“Listen. Read my lips. Read my lips, listen very carefully to what I am saying,” Carson said.

Carson chalked it up to the liberal media’s commitment to sidetrack his campaign.

They don’t want people to take me seriously. And they’re very afraid of my message getting out there because if flies directly in the face of the secular-progressive movement. I’m a huge threat to them. And therefore, if they can find a chink in the armor and they can concentrate on that, they can get you off of the things that are so important to our nation.

Carson had even predicted the liberal media would misrepresent his comments about using drones.

You guys, some of you are going to go out and say, “Carson wants to use drones to kill people on the borders, how ridiculous!” At some point I hope we have some responsible media which actually focuses on the problem.

The former neurosurgeon’s point was to use drones for surveillance and to eliminate caves where illegal goods and immigrants are hidden. He would not use drones to kill people.

He argued that the use of military assets like drones and the National Guard was “common sense” due to the “huge security risk” at the border coupled with the shortage of staffing.

Do you agree with Dr. Carson? Is there a security risk at the border? Is the secular-progressive movement eroding Judeo-Christian values? Share and comment below.

Former Employee Kills Reporter And Cameraman On Live TV

During a normal early morning news report about a water park in Roanoke, Va., a gunman shot and killed a reporter and cameraman on live TV.

The gunman filmed his actions just moments before and during the actual shooting.

Police have identified the shooter as Vester Lee Flanagan, whose on-air name was Bryce Williams. He had previously worked with the victims, on-air reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward, while at the station WDBJ in Virginia.

Vicki Gardner, the Chamber of Commerce employee who was being interviewed, was also shot in the back, but is in stable condition after surgery.

Virginia State Police indicated the suspect fled on I-66, but his vehicle ran off the road and crashed during the police chase. Troopers found he was suffering from a gunshot wound.

He was rushed to a local hospital but was pronounced dead at 1:26 p.m. E.T.

Many Twitter users rushed to offer prayers for the friends and families affected by the shooting, while others were quick to demand stricter gun control.

Parker’s boyfriend, Chris Hurst, posted photos of the couple on his Facebook page after the shooting declaring how they loved each other and had plans to get married. He added that he is still in shock and “feels numb.”

Watch: Rabbi Delivers Dire Warning For All Americans – ‘America Crossed The Line’

According to Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn, America could face hard times in the next year if the nation doesn’t change course and repent.

I believe a great shaking is coming to America and the world… We have watched the apostasy of America continue, it has, it has continued and is accelerating.

This can be seen most recently in the Supreme Court’s decision to redefine marriage.

America crossed the line. When the Supreme Court struck down the biblical definition of marriage, this was a tectonic event, a seismic change, with ramifications not just about marriage but about the future of the culture, of society, of religious freedom, of persecution, and I believe, judgment.

Cahn emphasizes that this is no time to be lukewarm. The grey middle is vanishing, and all that’s left is the light and the dark. We must choose a side.

And those who try to stay in the middle, and those who try to dance in the middle will find it harder and harder – you cannot dwell there. The time for grey is disappearing. If the darkness is removing the grey to become utterly dark, then it’s time for the light to remove the grey in our lives, in your life, in my life to become totally light.

Cahn’s final calls are for us to not be deterred, but to endure the persecution and continue to follow the Lord.

The fact is America is in danger. America is progressing on a dangerous course here away from God. And we are in critical times. We are at a crossroads in every way. For the society, the culture, the civilization, the church, to be praying for this time. And that we will declare and we’ll make up our minds. We will not bow down to Baal, we will not compromise, we will not give in to political correctness. No matter what, we will not turn away from God, no matter what any power on earth says. We will follow the Lord, and His ways only.

Donald Trump To Take The Fight To Those Who Attack ‘Christmas’

Another day, another assault against political correctness by Donald Trump. In a radio interview Friday, he said he wouldn’t stand for attacks against Christians.

You know when I see really, beyond liberty, there’s an assault on anything having to do with Christianity.

They don’t want to use the word Christmas anymore at department stores..

Sims: Hah, right!

There’s always lawsuits where, and unfortunately a lot of those lawsuits are won by the other side.

Mr. Trump argued he would take the fight to those who try to stifle the word “Christmas.”

So, I mean there’s a great assault on Christianity in so many ways. I will assault that. I will go so strongly against so many of the things when they take away the word Christmas.

I go out of my way to use the word Christmas.

While it’s admirable for Mr. Trump to defend Christians, it shouldn’t come as a shock when they are persecuted.

1 Peter 4:12-14 says:

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
