POTUS Admits 'Gun Control'
Truth After TX Hostage Situation

By James Fite. Jan 18, 2022

In response to press questions after his remarks on the hostage situation at a synagogue in Texas this past weekend, President Joe Biden stated a truth about 'gun control' the left rarely admits. When asked if this event would affect the push to ensure guns aren’t available, Biden said that “you can’t stop something like this if someone is on the street buying something from somebody else on the street.” The president is correct, of course – but that knowledge never dissuaded Democrats bent on disarming the people before, and there’s no reason to assume it will now.

Hostage Situation

On Dec. 29, 2021, a British national landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. By Jan. 15, he had made his way to Colleyville, TX, where he held four people at gunpoint in a synagogue and demanded the release of a woman serving a federal prison sentence for trying to kill American service members in Afghanistan. After a nearly 11-hour standoff, the FBI hostage rescue team did as its name suggests: rescued the hostages. The suspect was shot dead in the process.

It appears in fact that the Rabbi threw a chair at the perpetrator and the remaining three hostages escaped. How or when in that scenario the terrorist was shot is not clear, but it seems important to note that the FBI did not directly free the hostages. Rather, by their own initiative, they escaped.

All that occurred between the New York arrival and the attack in Texas remains unclear, but authorities were confident he spent some time in homeless shelters to better portray himself as destitute and gain access to the synagogue during Shabbat services. It worked; he knocked and was invited in for tea. Police believe he purchased his firearm on the street from someone he met at one of the shelters. As no Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) was involved in the transaction, there was no background check to reveal that the buyer was a foreign national with a criminal record.
