At that point, one of the members of the group asked the two to flash their gang signs, but they refused, telling the group of thugs that they weren’t in a gang. Police said that 18-year-old Mario Elvira then pulled out a machete and struck the older male in the head with it, continuing to violently take swings at him until a train approached and ran the group off.
...WGN reports that the Border Patrol had been called in to investigate the immigration status of the assailants – finding that nearly all of them were here illegally — and probably all “Dreamers” eligible for amnesty under Barack Obama’s DACA executive order.
One of the fun things about this? Most of the gun bigots just loooove the idea of amnesty for every illegal alien who's snuck across our border.
Speaking of gun bigot dirtbags,
...Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who donated $500,000 to the Initiative 594 campaign on Aug. 11, is now in a legal battle over possession of a – are you sitting down? – WWII German Panzer tank.
According to the story, which also appears in the Seattle P-I.com, Allen paid $2.5 million for the tank two months ago, to a California group called the Collings Foundation, which allegedly has declined to turn it over.
The story says Allen is “an avid collector of historical military planes and other equipment.” Included in that “other” category is a Soviet SCUD missile that Allen reportedly bought for $349,000 and an allegedly “rusty and inoperable Cold War-era M55 self-propelled Howitzer.”
And this guy donated a half-mil to an initiative campaign that would criminalize the weekend loan of a shotgun to a neighbor for a Columbia Basin goose hunt without a background check? This is the man whose money is helping pander an 18-page gun control measure that is apparently so egregiously confusing and intrusive that two of the state’s largest, oldest and most respected rank-and-file law enforcement organizations, along with nine individual county sheriffs, are publicly opposed to its passage?
"Oh, but I can be trusted! It's people like you who can't."
And on the side of sense(common and otherwise),
In 2013, the Institute of Medicine, at the behest of the Centers for Disease Control, produced a report on firearms violence that has been ignored by the mainstream media. The upshot: defensive use of firearms occurs much more frequently than is recognized, “can be an important crime deterrent,” and unauthorized possession (read: by someone other than the lawful owner) of a firearm is a crucial driver of firearms violence.
That report went away for political reasons. Translation. Nobody wanted to talk about it because it raised more questions than it answered.
But we're supposed to trust the DoJ in all things. Right.
Meanwhile, in the Brady Paradise of Chicago, while the followers of Snuffy Pfleger(a priest whose allegiance to the truth isn't exactly outstanding) and he are blaming a gun shop, this is going on. Again. Yeah, it's the fault of the shop. Right.
A bit of history as to why the 'man of god'(in this case no capital is correct) is called that, and why him whining about 'hate mail' is so rich:
Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina’s Church, went way over the top this week. During a protest against Chuck’s Gun Shop, Father Pfleger twice threatened to “snuff out” the shop’s owner and threatened the same fate for legislators who oppose his position on gun control.
“We’re gonna find you and snuff you out,” Fleger said about the gun shop owner, likening the man to a “rat.” He later repeated his threat to “snuff out” the owner.
Fleger also had this to say to state legislators who vote against gun control measures.
“We’re gonna snuff out legislators who are voting [garbled] against our gun laws and we’re coming for you because we are not going to sit idly.”
