Republican challenger Lacy Johnson is hoping to beat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to represent the people of Minnesota’s 5th congressional district.

He already faces an uphill battle, and last night things took a tragic turn in North Minneapolis when a gunman shot two of his campaign staffers — killing one. 

The Daily Caller’s Jordan Lancaster reports:

One victim, a 17-year-old man, died at the scene, MPR News reported. The other victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A suspect was arrested Thursday morning in connection with the crime after a police pursuit, the Minneapolis Police Department told the Daily Caller.

“It is shocking and unnecessary acts of violence like this that prove why change is needed now more than ever in our community,” Johnson said, adding that the shooting didn’t occur during any campaign events and that they believe it has no connection to the campaign.

The two victims were standing outside of a service station Monday afternoon when they were approached and shot by the suspect or suspects, who then fled on foot, a preliminary police investigation found according to the Minneapolis Police Department.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office will release the victim’s identity in the coming days.

YES bo’s 8 years of violating 78 U.S. Laws and this 1952 law signed by POTUS Truman banning islam in the U.S.A. as enemies is one of bo’s #1 crimes allowing islam, muslims into the U.S again ! Treason all the way to the gallows, non-stop !

Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, Public Law 82–414, 66 Stat. 163, also known as the McCarran–Walter Act, Title 8 of the US Code (8 U.S.C. ch. 12) abolished the restrictions on Asian immigrating to the US.

As far as inadmissibility to immigrate or provisions for deportation, it prohibited those guilty of crimes involving moral turpitude. Under the sections, “Inadmissible aliens” and “Deportable aliens”, aliens were ineligible for NATURALIZATION if suspected of or committed criminal convictions, illegal gambling, alcohol use, drug trafficking, prostitution, unlawful voting, etc. within five years of entry.

The Act also deemed aliens who were anarchists or members of or affiliated with the COMMUNIST PARTY or any other totalitarian organizations that planned to overthrow the US as deportable aliens. The law provides that aliens who’re “successors of any association of Communism, regardless of name changes, still fell under the deportable aliens. ALIENS who advocated, taught, wrote, published in support for communism, a totalitarian dictatorship, and the overthrowing of the United States were also deportable aliens.”

It DOES NOT mention Islam. That comes from the convoluted reasoning of those opposed who believe ALL Muslims in the US want to overthrow it.

The Internal Security Act of 1950, 64 Stat. 987 (Public Law 81-831), also known as the Subversive Activities Control Act of 1950, or simply the McCarran Act, also didn’t ban Muslims, but rather targeted communists.

Furthermore, the SCOTUS Decisions of Aptheker v. Secretary of State 1964 and United States v. Robel 1967 further weakened the the 1950 Act.

So please stop spreading the false claim that US law prohibits Muslim immigration completely or advocates deporting Muslim immigrants, and especially Muslim Natural Born Citizens. NBCs can neither be deported, have their citizenship stripped, or sent to GITMO. In the latter case, it only applies if they’re caught on a FOREIGN battlefield.

By the way, look up the definition of treason and where its found in US law. I believe it’s true that Obama, Clinton, and Panetta committed treason, but it’s not for the reason you think.

If it’s not illegal it should be, I know everyone in that faith is not radical but in order to be in that faith they have to believe in the pillars of Islam every American should read the 7 pillars of Islam so you know what you’re dealing with and their fundamental ideologies are to convert or kill the infidel ( THAT’S US the non-muslim) so no they should not be allowed to hold a political office in America where they can influence our way of life

The Congress is not allowed to make any law(s) regarding the establishment of religion OR ANY LAWS PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF. Muslims may practice their belief system as long as it does not advocate overthrow of or attempt to replace the United States Constitutional Government. Sharia Law IS PROHIBITED. The US Constitution is the Supreme Law of the United States of America–PERIOD!

There you have it. PRACTICE A RELIGION. But we KNOW that islam is not a religion but a quasi form of government that pretends to be a religion. IF we had congressmen and SCOTUS JUSTICES who had brains, there would be NO doubt about

  1. “shall not be infringed. (2nd amendment)
  2. What constitutes a religion.

GOTCHA.
You see, the muslims have TAQIYYA and MURUNA. That gives the right to LIE at any time they might suffer from their ISLAMIC beliefs.
So you can’t prove a single muslims is peaceful. They could be JUST LYING.

Thanks ward. And don’t forget bo’s sending cash to Iran. With that he lent aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States of America. The Constitution defines that as TREASON!

I would say you are correct! Wake the hell up America..Keep voting in DEMOCOMMUNISTS/MOOSLIMES/RINOS and THIS my friends, will be the “normal operations” in this country. We are slowly being turned into a communist-controlled third-world cesspool unless people open their eyes and rid our country of these scum.
VOTE WISELY my friends unless you desire to become controlled “subjects” the corrupt democommunists will be free to use. abuse, regulate beyond belief, tax to death, or (just like this) “ELIMINATE” anyone (or groups) they choose to, to hold on to complete POWER and CONTROL.

Agree strongly with your “ELIMINATE” conclusion… May it be soon and by any means necessary.
