9 dead, 18 injured in Waco biker gang shooting
Nine people were killed Sunday and some others injured after a shootout erupted among rival biker gangs at a Central Texas restaurant, sending patrons and bystanders fleeing for safety, a police spokesman said. SOURCE
Some of the commentary I am going to make is going to anger a few people, I am pretty good at that lately, but it’s going to cause others to agree and in doing so, to make a stand for America and the SANE people that remain in this nation.
First; I don’t care how many GANG MEMBERS were killed or injured, they are GANG MEMBERS, outlaws that choose to make their statement with a Harley-Davidson, ragged leather and lots of anti-everything tattoos. These people live outside the law and normal society, they are NOT good people.
I have nothing against motorcycles and riders, in my younger and healthier days I was one of them. I wasn’t a GANG MEMBER, hell, I didn’t ride with a club, but these guys in Waco, they aren’t a club, they are GANGS and all they do is make responsible motorcycle riders look bad to those that are too narrow minded to know or care about the differences.
Second; these were NOT mainstream Texas gun owners, I would take bets that the guns they used were not legally purchased and that none of the gun carriers had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
If there happened to be a CHL Permit in the crowd and they were in this Bar and Grill and were drinking alcoholic beverages while carrying, they did, to the best of my knowledge, by that action, violate the carry laws of Texas and placed themselves in a position of losing their permit, IF such actually existed, which I seriously doubt.
Third; there are some stone-cold MORONS in this world, and they cover ALL sides of the political spectrum.
I had wondered how long before the Loons of the Left would be blaming Texas gun laws, the NRA and the Second Amendment and it didn’t take long, for the Left and several other breeds of MORON to sound off.
The Loons of the Left are already blaming the Second Amendment, the NRA, Texas gun laws, Texas concealed carry laws, every LEGAL gun owner in Texas and the NRA for this bloodbath in Waco. It seems that 2 or 3 outlaw motorcycle groups having a go at each other is the fault of LEGAL gun owners and the state of Texas in general, and we were responsible almost as soon as the story broke.
Some are blaming the Waco Police for *not being there* and that is sheer stupidity on the part of the people making that particular comment; the Waco Police was there and traded shots with the GANG MEMBERS that shot at them.
There are some that *claim* to be from the political Right that are blaming Barack Hussein Obama for this melee. I believe them to be trolls and trouble makers.
Obama is anti-gun, but he had nothing to do with this brawl, even though I have seen more than a few comments on social media saying that Obama had this staged to further his anti-gun campaign.
Somehow, I just can’t believe that one.
What I can believe is the few I have seen making comments about this being a *drug war* scenario.
Interstate Highway 35 is a drug pipeline, a corridor for drug shipments from Mexico, which is a known fact. What I can’t present as 100% factual is the idea that this area of Waco, right along I-35 and a major truck stop is an area of contention for Cartels.
Control of drug trade routes is everything to the Cartels, again, a known fact, and motorcycle gangs have been heavily invested in the drug trade for many years.
Call it *profiling* on my part, call it intuition, call it whatever you like but I see a *turf war* in this, and IF that is the case, I only see it getting worse. IF it’s shaping up to be a *drug war* then the U.S. government will be blamed for allowing it to happen, and sadly, not much can been done to STOP the drug trade, there is too much money involved.
