A Lesson in Natural Consequences

And an apolitical one at that!

This is the local story of two dogs that were shot dead last Thursday night.  What some people see as a case of animal cruelty others see as a case of natural consequences.

Before I go any further let me state, for the PETA people, that a do not condone the killing of pets.  The issue here wasn't the dogs, it was the owners.

It all started months ago when the owners, the Lubliners, started getting complaints about their dogs' frequent barking.  They ignored those complaints.  The neighbors then turned to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office (DCSO) for help.  The Sheriff's department has charged the Lubliners twice with animal nuisance.

Supporting Opinions on "Gun Control" is Violence

Couple of items to share that back up my previous post "Gun Control" is Violence.
First, Jeffrey Shapiro gives us the data and first hand experience that, once again, demonstrates that "gun control" costs lives...
The gun ban had an unintended effect: It emboldened criminals because they knew that law-abiding District residents were unarmed and powerless to defend themselves. Violent crime increased after the law was enacted, with homicides rising to 369 in 1988, from 188 in 1976 when the ban started. By 1993, annual homicides had reached 454.


Since the gun ban was struck down, murders in the District have steadily gone down, from 186 in 2008 to 88 in 2012, the lowest number since the law was enacted in 1976.

"Gun Control" is Violence...

...and promises of "gun control" are threats of violence.  Behind every gun control advocate's argument is a desire to harm millions for the supposed goal of saving hundreds.  The ones that know this have a hidden agenda that they dare not share for it will expose their evil nature.

I put "gun control" in quotes because the end-game isn't reasonable restrictions on firearm ownership but rather an all-out prohibition or disarmament.  Liberals have made this perfectly clear in places in Washington DC, New York City, Chicago, etc... where they use taxpayer dollars to prohibit taxpayers from utilizing their sacred, Second Amendment protected, right to keep and bear arms.  A right that has been re-affirmed by every high court that has ruled on the matter including the recent Heller case.

In spite of promises that disarmament will prevent violence, here are the reasons the exact opposite is true...
