While many anti-gun leftists suggest that significantly restricting the Second Amendment rights of American citizens would curtail criminal acts, nations without such constitutional protections regularly experience their own tragedies at the hands of armed assailants.
One recent example occurred in Dublin, Ireland, when a knife-wielding subject targeted five people, including three children. Two of the victims, a teacher’s aide and a 5-year-old girl, remained hospitalized as of the latest updates available.
The suspect, who was not immediately identified by authorities, but had been described in some social media posts as an Algerian immigrant, was stopped by witnesses and was transported from the scene to an area hospital where he was listed in serious condition.
The incident has prompted widespread calls for action from locals and prominent Irish citizens — including professional fighter Conor McGregor.
In a social media post referencing the matter, he railed against the “absolute picture of weak and feeble” on display by the suspect.
“The most divisive of all is the weak man,” McGregor wrote. “One of the most horrific crimes this nation [has] ever seen has occurred, we do not care anymore what you sad cases have got to say. In a war you are nothing. We are not backing down, we are only warming up.”
He went on to advocate for “real change” to promote safety across the nation.
“We are not losing any more of our [women] and children to sick and twisted people who should not even be in Ireland in the first place,” he added. “Call it what you want. We do not care. May God help us all. Ireland for victory.”
As nations across Europe have opened up their borders to so-called refugees from North Africa and other areas of the world, there has been a corresponding uptick in reported crimes that largely targets citizens of the countries in which they occur.
McGregor went on to lash out at law enforcement and national leaders for exacerbating the problem, writing: “Everything — from our lax border with gravy train benefits, to our pitiful mental health services, to our country in flames — is on your watch!”
