Peccable reflections

The Party of “Truth, Light and Brotherly Love”, yes that very one that accuses the GOP, conservatives and all “Deplorables” of being racist SOB’s and bigots of the worst kind, produced this colorful character, a fundraiser from Missouri.

Democratic Fundraiser Charged With Racially Motivated Gun Crime

Well, this is a wild story, albeit a local one, coming from Missouri. A top fundraiser for the Democratic Party has been arrested and charged with a racially motivated gun crime. Matthew Lieberman is accused of drawing a handgun at two locations, firing shots, and shouting racial epithets. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that surveillance footage captured Lieberman with a firearm, along with shell casings at the scene that matched those found in his car. He was arrested on November 29. His bail has been set at $250,000 (via St. Louis Post-Dispatch):

Veteran Democratic fundraiser Matthew Lieberman has been charged with multiple felony gun crimes after allegedly firing a handgun and shouting racial slurs at eyewitnesses at two businesses Tuesday.

Lieberman pointed a handgun at someone at the Amoco gas station on Skinker Boulevard and Highway 40 (Interstate 64) while using racial epithets just after 11 p.m. Tuesday, according to court documents. He then allegedly fired multiple shots at the building from his car.

In court documents, investigators said surveillance footage showed Lieberman with the gun, and bullet casings at the scene matched the make and model of bullet casings found in Lieberman’s car.

Less than 15 minutes later, Lieberman was at the Jack in the Box on Hampton Avenue, shouting racial epithets at maintenance workers, according to court documents. He fired a gun several times from a Mercedes sedan, the documents say.

[…]

Lieberman, 38, was arrested Wednesday and now faces charges of unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action. One weapons charge includes a hate crime enhancement, with officers reporting that Lieberman’s “conduct and use of epithets indicate his actions to be motivated by race.”

You never can wonder more about the depths of hypocrisy that the Jackass Party can sink. From groping and grabbing to treason to gun control BS, they step in the stink thigh high.

This bill, if is passes the House and gets 60 votes in the Senate, will cause an uproar in several blue states such as New York, Maryland, Illinois, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. There are others but these will have several litters of kittens.

Twenty-Three State Attorneys General Back National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is currently making its way through the House. It is expected to be voted out of Committee and onto the House floor. If passed, which would also require 60 votes in the Senate, the legislation will allow individuals to travel across state lines with their lawfully issued permits.

“This bill amends the federal criminal code to allow a qualified individual to carry a concealed handgun into or possess a concealed handgun in another state that allows individuals to carry concealed firearms,” a summary of the bill states. “A qualified individual must: (1) be eligible to possess, transport, or receive a firearm under federal law; (2) carry a valid photo identification document; and (3) carry a valid concealed carry permit issued by, or be eligible to carry a concealed firearm in, his or her state of residence.”

“Additionally, the bill specifies that a qualified individual who lawfully carries or possesses a concealed handgun in another state: (1) is not subject to the federal prohibition on possessing a firearm in a school zone, and (2) may carry or possess the concealed handgun in federally owned lands that are open to the public,” the summary continues.

The bill would prevent lawful citizens from being unfairly targeted by harsh gun laws in a number of states or inadvertently violating a patch work of different laws across the country as they travel.  [snip]

“The letter states that H.R. 38 is a much-needed solution to a problem facing gun owners and poses no threat to public safety. “The exercise of Congress’s power is particularly warranted in this case because too many states refuse to allow law-abiding visitors to carry concealed firearms,” Cox continued. “These states leave people without any real option for self-defense. Allowing concealed carry across state lines will not result in an increased risk of crime, as those states that have reciprocal concealed-carry agreements have not encountered any significant safety issues.”

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is expected to see a full floor vote this week.

Another GUN FREE ZONE debacle

Gunman in Sutherland Springs church shooting ID’d as Devin Patrick Kelley, authorities say

Devin Patrick Kelley, of New Braunfels, has been identified as the gunman.

Kelley walked into the First Baptist Church and began shooting around 11:20 a.m., before fleeing in a vehicle, Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt said. Witnesses said Kelley was dressed in all black tactical gear and a ballistic vest and a Department of Public Safety official said he was carrying a Ruger ARb assault-type rifle.

Tackitt said Kelley was later found dead in the vehicle in Guadalupe County. The exact circumstances of his death are not known.

Johnnie Langendorff told KSAT’s Garret Brngr that he witnessed the end of the shooting and said another man and Kelley exchanged gunfire after Kelley left the church. Langendorff said he and the man chased Kelley for several minutes in their vehicle.

Eight survivors were taken to Brooke Army Medical Center via medical helicopter. Their conditions are not known. Others were taken to area hospitals for treatment. [snip]

The Jackass Party didn’t take long to politicize this doing of an individual bent of commuting mass murder.

Dems renew calls for gun control in wake of Texas church shooting

Democrats are renewing their calls for gun reform after reports of a mass shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday.

Multiple people are dead after gunfire erupted at the church, which is not far outside San Antonio, according to reports.

Sens. Bob Casey Jr. (Pa.), Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.) were among the Democrats who urged Congress to act in response to the latest deadly shooting.

“I’m thinking of and praying for all those impacted by the shooting in Texas. In addition to offering my prayers and thoughts I also believe Congress must take action on gun violence,” Casey wrote in two separate tweets.

“The shooter turned his gun on people — kids — in a place of worship. America is in the grips of a gun violence crisis. Congress must act,” Durbin tweeted. [snip]

Strange the Jackasses didn’t act like this when any of the Muslim cranks pick up a gun and shoot up the neighborhood. Nor do they raise a stink over the Chicago murder rate.
