Shots Fired Into Florida GOP Campaign Office

Recommended Posts

Over the last couple of years, it’s seemed like the world has lost its ever-loving mind.

We have riots on a semi-regular basis, people trying to block the passage of cars, “peaceful” protestors throwing M80’s inside bottles and hitting people with bicycle locks, and that doesn’t even touch the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise by a leftist activist as he tried to mow down as many Republican lawmakers as possible.

Yet in the wake of the arrest of the man police say is responsible for the alleged pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats–a man who lived in a van slathered in pro-Trump images and text–it seems that many on the left are now feeling justified in using violence. The rhetoric is all around.

However, it seems that someone may have decided to act on it.

At least four shots were fired into the Volusia County Republican Party’s office in South Daytona, police said Monday.

No one was injured, according to South Daytona police Capt. Mark Cheatham, but the shooting broke the offices’ front window and caused some damage to the drywall inside.

Cheatham said a volunteer reported the incident on Monday, which could’ve happened between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning at the office located at 2841 South Nova Road.

No eyewitnesses have been identified and investigators are in the process of tracking down surveillance footage from neighboring businesses, Cheatham said.

Volusia County Republican chair Tony Ledbetter, told WFTV that “some sick person,” which he identified as “Democrats,” took their anger out on his office.

“You’ve got some sick person, and I’ll call them out, they’re Democrats. No Republican has any reason to come attack our location,” Ledbetter said.

Police have not released any information about potential suspects, their political affiliations or motive for the incident.

Now, it’s possible that this was committed by someone other than Democrats.

It’s also possible that space aliens will land in my yard and hand me a truckload of platinum just because I’m a swell guy. I’m not holding my breath on either.

This incident is technically being described by some as vandalism, and I get that. As there was no one in the office, there was no danger to human life, only damage to property. That is technically vandalism.

But I believe it’s more than that.

This is an attempt at intimidation. This is a message, someone telling the Volusia Count Republicans that they’re not welcome by at least one individual. It’s a message that not everyone with a gun votes Republican.

And I can’t help but believe this is almost meant as a warning, that those who work at this office had best be careful before the next bullets come through the building with them inside.

I won’t refer to this as an escalation in violence–that’s pretty hard to do after Scalise was shot, to be honest–but it’s a continuation of the low-level violence the left has engaged in ever since Donald Trump was elected. They keep doing this because they don’t follow the same rules as the rest of the world. They believe their ends justify their means and that includes possibly even killing people who disagree with them. Social media is filled with examples of this.

The problem with this is that someday, one of them will try a stunt like this and someone will be inside the building.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
