Even some leftists are now calling gun control “junk science”

John CardilloRebel Host | Off The Cuff

Progressives have been telling you lie upon lie about the ease with which fully automatic weapons can be purchased.

Now their narrative is collapsing as even others on the left dismiss the gun control agenda as junk science and refuse to promote it any longer.

@Jay Kelly…nobody in that concert venue was permitted to have a gun and no guest of that hotel/casino was permitted to have a gun. Some people just have an attitude of “permission be damned”….and it is this and not the guns that is beyond “control”.

There are considerably less victims that were armed then victims that are unarmed when the need to defend oneself arises.!!

It is important to keep repeating the real facts about guns and gun control. There is no logic in the left’s narrative, they are fools.

Dan Mancuso: Yes the attempt to take advantage of raw emotions while the massacre is fresh is what is driving the push to introduce legislation without due consideration can be given. It is just like the democrats to try to exploit and run the show even though they are not in power. But an out and out gun grab is the real motivation. http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2017/10/05/nyt-columnist-calls-repealing-second-amendment/

GUN CONTROL…has very little to do with guns and everything to do with control – of you!

JOHN CARDILLO, your articles seem pretty black and white from a moral perspective – very refreshing!

Correction: I meant to say for all the hate being heaped on the right over this incident. Coming from the left.

Jay Kelly, why do you have so many Homer Simpson moments on this site?

Oops…make that “start of the beginning of the end”. You know what I meant.

The Las Vegas shooting may well be the start of the beginning of the false anti-firearm narrative of the left. Alex Jones of Infowars may have most of the story right. The shooter was an Antifa/ISIS gunrunner who was laundering profits at the casinos using the cover of being a video poker player. Jones also contends that the shooter did not act alone. Someone turned a blind eye to all the guns and ammo being brought to the room. Also, there was a shoot out at the Belagio when the attack on the concert happened. Antifa is the left wing of the Democrat party, the Democrats are pro-Islamic immigration, as a consequence they desperately trying to go on the offensive blaming this on law abiding gun owners. The bad news for the Dems is that local law enforcement has told Trump. Trump will hold his fire until the right moment, and then look out.

That’s right Jay un-armed victims… That’s what you have in a gun free zone
un-armed victims …!! My right to lethal self-defence trumps your right to die unprotected and un-armed in a gun free zone.

Yesterday I placed my shotgun on the front porch…i noticed that it didn’t have any shells so I placed three right beside it .
While looking down at it I also noticed that it didn’t have any legs so I gave it a wheelchair to get around in if it wanted. While I was gone the mailman came and delivered some mailand the young man across the street came and rake my leaves for me. A girl also walked her dog several times in front of my house while some cars pulled up and stopped for a while in front of my house while some people got together and visited that same afternoon…
after 10 hours I checked my shotgunand it had not killed anyone in spite of all the many many chances that it had that day.. in spite of all the chances that it had to kill or injure people it never did a thing and in fact it never even moved…can you imagine how surprised I was with all the hype about guns killing people.. somehow I think it must be people miss using firearms or I must have the laziest gun in the whole world..
I am off to go research spoons now because I hear they make people fat.. I will keep you informed of my findings.!!

Jay Kelly he is just responding to the sick demented scum on the left who started preaching gun control while people were still being rushed to hospital. Of course a pathetic ignorant freedom hating fool like yourself only likes it when your ignorant views are spoken. If you disagree that guns make one safer, go walk into a Hell’s Angels clubhouse and threaten them some time, see how well they play the victim.

Jay Kelly, there is no bad time to confront the lies of the left.
commented 2017-10-06 00:57:14 -0400
Murder has been illegal forever jay but you’re too stupid to understand that… Guns don’t kill people people kill people.

And that kind of carnage is what happens in gun free zone’s when people are unable to defend themselves by law..!!

Pretty sick, eh? Just after the American shoots fifty people dead with his lawfully purchased weapons, John Cardillo wants to use his Rebel page to promote gun freedom. Bad timing and a disgusting sense of right and wrong.

The Rebel knows better than this, and Ezra Levant knows better than this. Today is a time for Canadians to reflect on the value of firearms. They can be used to hunt a deer or they can be used to fire upon concert goers until hundreds of them are either dead or seriously injured.

As “Flat Earth” says: Un armed victims (period) three exclamation marks: “.!!!”

Un armed victims.!!!!

Thanks John Cardillo.

- Like most leftist policies, buying into their gun control narrative requires a high level of ignorance. This explains the mainstream media. They get their “facts” from Hollywood – where guns only run out of bullets when it suits the script, where you can be protected by a turned over card table, etc. Anyone that does any real research will quickly learn the truth.

William, thanks for the correction.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt commented – “I thought from the time of calls to 911 until the hotel door was breached by SWAT took 72 minutes, is this not the case?”

No. The 911 recordings and police band records confirm it was about 19 Min.
commented 2017-10-05 20:36:56 -0400
When seconds count the police are only 19 minutes away to assist the armed victims.!!!

William Elder, there is so much more to this…

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt – that 72 minute response thing turns out to be one of the may fallacies seeded in the aftermath. Response from the outset of the shooting to containing the shooting source was about 19 minutes (most of that time was from local cops told to stand down and wait for FBI SWAT teams to arrive). The more facts emerging make me believe this was a gun smuggling deal brokered through ISIS with Antifa set up by Fed agents that went bad – the story is a cover up after the operation went south.
commented 2017-10-05 19:21:02 -0400
Great report John Cardillo!
Flat Earth, I’m still floored it took 72 minutes to breach the door!

Facts always suck, that is why the left hate them.

Imagine, extreme restrictions on full-auto since 1934 with additional restrictions since 1986 in The States. Just does not agree with the narrative. Along with the fact a bump stock has been illegal for how long?

Which makes the whole Vegas tragedy curious. How did A-Hole get that many illegal firearms into a “gun free” zone?

First let’s stop calling people who want to remove our right and property and means to personal defense “progressives”. At the very least they’re regressive. We have seen terrorists deploy knives, gasoline, hardware store inventory and common vehicles as effectively as guns in mass killings so focus on firearms is a logical fallacy.

The failed “evil gun” fallacy no longer resonates as relevant to the vast majority of alert and thinking people. It is a narrative sold with hysterical emotionalism always in the wake of a criminal act of murder (which has been outlawed before guns were even a reality). Even those who think reflexively know a opportunistic manipulative narrative when they see it. The public is rightfully jaded.
