Gun Control Now!

After decades I’ve had a change of mind….

I have suddenly found myself on the side of those crying for Gun Control.

It is clear we need it.

In fact, it is clear the world needs it.

I have a proposal that would have saved 100’s of millions of humans lives in the past and, without question, hundreds of millions in the future.

Since it is demonstrably clear that if Liberals ban guns only Liberals will have guns…
Ban all those individuals and groups whose ideology resides within the spectrum of Socialism/Liberalism/Mentally Insane.
That’s it.  I know, I know… seems too simple.  But most often the simplest answer is the “safest” answer.

So, the groups of persons forbidden to own firearms include but may not be limited to (as the Left often change their names due to the rest of us figuring out who they are…) Marxists, Fascists, Statists, Leftists, Socialists, Social Democrats, Democrat Socialists, Liberals (The U.S. definition), Neo-Nazi’s, Progressives, Democrats, Neo-Marxists, Anarchists, Monarchists, Theocrats, Eco-Terrorists, Oligarchs, Authoritarians, Totalitarians, Communists, Nihilists, National Socialists and of course National Democratic Socialists…. oh, and any Union Leaders or Community Organizers.

As far as determining who fits into these groups we can develop an easy to fill out psych profile administered by any gun dealer at their discretion.  If it comes back positive for the above mentioned groups ideology then the person should be refused a weapon of any kind.  In fact, the pen in their hand should be immediately removed from their possession as well as their belt and shoe laces.  Then their name should be passed around by the shop owner to every other gun shop within a 3500 mile radius.

While this would certainly not stop gun violence it would be a good start.  And, considering those committing the crimes, it would stem the tide of mass shootings while preserving our ability to protect ourselves from tyrannical government these people directly and indirectly promote should the need ever arise.  Perfect… Crazies don’t get guns and the Second Amendment remains intact for the brave who might actually defend the land of the free…

Then we can all drink a little easier.

Guns, Guns, Guns…

…and who owns them.

I’ve been paying attention, with unusual interest, to the debate surrounding the tiny newspaper in New York that released the names of firearms permit holders.

Clearly this was political.  Clearly it was legal.

OK… so why would anyone be upset?  Aside from the blatantly political move by the “objective” press….

1.  There is an argument that gun owners do not want “bad guys” to know they have a gun in their home.

I’m not sure I understand this argument… If I’m not home my weapons are secure.  If I’m home, I’m secure.  No problem.  I hope the “bad guys” all know… that’s kind of the point.

2.  There is an argument that law-abiding Liberals living around those who have publicly applied for, and obtained, firearms permits are a threatened by those permit holders.

Again, I’m not sure I understand this argument as law-abiding Gun Owners are not the ones committing crimes.  They are also connected in many cases of stopping criminal acts in progress.  (We can discuss who is the “first line of defense” in comments if needed.  I welcome it.  I have also heard Liberal talking heads say they would not want their kids in my home if they know I have guns… well I too do not want your kids in my home, soooo… we’re okay then, right?)

But there is one clear point here.

Yes, this exposure was intended to “shame” those who own guns by the Leftist Newspaper.  But it has turned out to be only shameful to the Leftist permit holders.  This fact should bring a smile to our collective gun owning faces.

You have to remember that to a Liberal, laws are for other people… not the Liberals who propose them.  The only people on that list of names who were “shamed” were those individual Liberals who champion Gun Control laws… for the Little People.   It is fashionable to be in favor of gun bans… being more outraged over every shooting than your neighbor… shaking your head in disdain over the proliferation of guns in America, etc.

This presents itself in the Righteousness associated with their Democrat/Socialist circle of friends by being in favor of all and any Gun Control.  (These are also the same people who if offered a sign for their front yard proclaiming “This Home is Proudly Gun Free” would refuse to put it up.  I know this because I have personally offered to hammer it into the ground myself…)

However, It becomes difficult to explain to your “Common Sense-Mainstream” Liberal neighbors that you too are a “Common Sense-Mainstream” Liberal when you have been outed as a gun-toting freak.

This is why there has been quick and focused amount of negative attention applied to this matter by the rest of the Leftist Media… because they’re well aware that a number of their members happen to have concealed carry permits and reside in New York and the surrounding boroughs, counties and states.  The very leftist New York Media who are NOT cheering this latest exposure of permit holders, know full well they are on deck for the next round of exposures.

So once again, the Hypocrisy of the Left is what is at issue here.  Nothing New.

Don’t be distracted by the first two arguments and pay closer attention to who is being offended and positioning themselves as the suddenly new champions of the second amendment and personal privacy.  You will find a growing number of Democrats whose voting records demonstrate their brand new, previously undocumented, love of both.  They have images to protect… don’t you know.

Keep Smiling!

(Update: Gawker has fired the next shot by producing a list of permit holders in NYC.  Hilarious!)

It’s worth noting that this story occurred several years ago… and very shortly after Gawker released the NYC list the ‘releasing of lists’ suddenly stopped.  It was not made illegal to release these lists… it just ‘mysteriously’ stopped.  Funny how Leftist Liberals do not like it when you turn on the lights.

It’s Never that Their Ideas are Bad…

It’s that Their Ideas are Never Bad Enough.

So, They Demand More of the Same Bad Ideas.

In Fact… As Much More as They can get you to Let Them Do.

Adding to the long list such as Poor Student Performance resulting in a cry for yet More Taxpayer Money directed to ballooning Public School Administrators salaries, and Union Pensions for Educators who can never be fired, neither of which result in teaching Kids…

And the Destruction of Free-Market Health Care and Health Insurance… when the VA has demonstrated what happens when Government Bureaucracy, and the Unaccountability commiserate with it, are in charge of human lives and taxpayer dollars.

Now comes along the Mayor of Chicago Demanding More Gun Control in one of the most heavily controlled states in the Union.

Damn the evidence that a well armed populace is an immediate deterrent to Thugs who look to project their power, and infringe on your Liberty and Freedom through the use of Force and a Firearm…

Damn the daily proof that Gun Control only control’s those who seek to follow the Law in the First Place…

And Damn the statistics which show escalating loss of life in exactly those areas where Firearms are most heavily regulated… cities, schools and ‘gun-free’ zones.

You might be thinking ‘Why would people I respect demand more of what doesn’t work?’.

Simply put, demanding more of what doesn’t work does two things.  First it allows the person making the demand appear to care about solving the problem.  Second, and most importantly, it prevents other ideas which could illustrate the fundamental failure associated with all things socialist to be tried.

By demanding more failure, the individual doing the demanding attempts to secure the position of caring more about the issue than you do while protecting the socialist control their fellow travelers have achieved over the course of decades.

In other words,

Is our Prescribed Medicine making you Sick?

Then Double the Dosage and Don’t call us in the Morning.

(…but keep sending us money and voting for us.)

We’ll feel better for it.


It’s Time.

It’s time to take the Liberal call for Gun Control Seriously!

For decades I have resisted Gun Control under the auspices that the Second Amendment was designed to keep Government from doing Terrible things to the Citizenry.

But it suddenly dawned on me…

Who could possibly understand the depths of Liberal Insanity than Liberals Themselves.

When looking at it this way…

It suddenly becomes clear that those screaming for Gun Bans know with extreme certainty how dangerous they are given their access to Guns.

I have noted in the past the Hundreds of Millions of innocent victims of “Liberal Progressives”.  Self Identified Socialists have been at the Helm of more Killing than any other Human beings to have walked the planet.

Mark this as the moment I realize the validity of their argument.

Marxists, Leftists, Socialists, Fascists, Liberal Democrats or whatever they choose to call themselves at any given time, must not be allowed to own Guns… of any type… ever.

The Movement starts Here!


Let Me make sure I Understand this…

The Conservatives…

The people who want to control you,
The people who want you to starve,
The people who want you to breathe polluted air,
The people who want you to drink dirty water,
The people who want you to eat poison food,
The people who want you to be homeless,
The people who want to exploit you,
The people who want to own your body,
The people who want you to be sick,
The people who want to oppress you,
The people who want you to die…

Are…

The people who want you to have Guns.


A Nation of Criminals

They’re Coming to Get Me.

They’re coming to get you too, but I don’t care so much about you… unless you can keep them from getting me.

OK, maybe they’re not coming right this second… but they want to be able to.

It appears our government’s standard operating procedure, at every level, is to make sure everybody is guilty of something… because they never know when that will come in handy.

First, you need a tax code nobody, I mean nobody, understands putting everyone in violation of it.

Second, you need a ton of laws that lay on the books unenforced so everyone forgets about them… until you want to use them.  These laws range from Zoning to Gun control.  And the best part is, when someone complains “there ought to be a law”, even though there is one you simply don’t remind them of it and craft some brand new ones that are even more onerous.  Brilliant!

In a world where your every business transaction is tracked (unless it is illegal… particularly if the BATFE is bank rolling it with your money as in Fast & Furious)… your location is always known through your cell phone, your car’s GPS system, electronically monitored power consumption at your home, your purchases on your credit cards and super computer’s dedicated to reading your e-mail and text messaging as they are sent… it is no surprise that there are many folks out there who don’t trust the Government, particularly those individual, fallible, self-interested human beings who run it.

As I have stated several times before, I believe your Freedom is directly correlated to your ability to live your life anonymously.

We just saw what can happen when the government keeps track of all those individuals holding concealed carry permits in New York.  It is my opinion the only people who should be upset about the disclosure of the names and addresses of these permit holders are those Liberals who support “Gun Control” for Others (read “stupid people” in other words “not them”).  The only casualty here will be their hypocrisy.  So much for being anonymous.

But the point here is that it was a political statement by the Newspaper.  There is no other reason.  Not a single mass shooting was committed by a permit holder.  Not one.  In fact, there have been several possible crimes stopped by permit holders as of late.  But, if you follow the Liberal logic those crimes should have been allowed to continue unabated for the 3-4 minutes it typically takes police to arrive.  If you don’t think that is a very long time try something… get a watch, and time yourself holding your breath for just 3 of those 4 minutes.  Start…. now.  I’ll wait.

That was fun huh?  It’s a long time… and a lot of very bad things can happen in that time.

So let’s all stop pretending that the Second Amendment was placed in the U.S. Bill of Rights to preserve your ability to hunt.  For you Liberals out there, go to Amazon and order yourself a copy of the Federalist Papers.  (You probably will not find it in your local Hippie Book Store as it was not written by Socialist “thinkers”.)  When it shows up, read it.  Yes… yes… I know you will not do this, but for the rest of us it further illustrates my point.  The answer is out there.

There is no mystery in the second amendment’s “meaning” requiring a bunch of poorly educated, hand wringing Ivy League diploma holders to decipher.  (By the way, now you can obtain a law degree, and subsequent law license, without ever taking a class in Constitutional Law.  That’s right… you can practice law without studying the document the law is based upon.  So when you’re listening to an absolute idiot with a law degree tell you that they don’t need you explaining what the Constitution and the Bill of Rights state because they have a law degree, as I did this very day, further explain to them that clearly you do or they wouldn’t be offering such idiotic opinion.)

These documents were written so everyone could understand them.  The only people who can’t seem to understand them are those who simply don’t like the inability to tell you what to do which is enshrined and preserved in those documents.  I recall a lament by President Obama to this effect when he explained how unfortunate it is that the U.S. Constitution is a “Limiting Document”… as it tells those holding office what they cannot do to the population versus what they can do to the population.  If you’re not asking why any office holder, at least one that we would want holding an office, would want to do things TO the population you’re missing the point entirely and leads me directly back to my discussion of the Second Amendment.  Don’t fool yourself, there are a ton of these types on both sides of the aisle… the power of Government attracts them like flies to decay.

The Second Amendment was placed into the Bill of Rights in order for the Citizens to defend themselves… wait for it… from threats foreign and domestic.  If you Leftists are still out there at this point, this is a government document.  A Document designed to LIMIT GOVERNMENT.  “Foreign” means threats to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” of the Individual from abroad (outside of the United States).  “Domestic” means threats to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” of the Individual from INSIDE the United States.  With the only institutionalized right to “force” being possessed by government at nearly every level, the founders were wise enough to know that an armed population would greatly inhibit really crappy politicians from oppressing you.

It sounds simple, because it is.

The Second Amendment is about the unfortunate and ultimate need to resist Tyrannical Government.  And never in history has there been a time when all those residing inside any nation on Earth have unanimously agreed to what qualifies as Tyranny.  There have always been about 30% of every population that is just fine with the subjugation of the others (read “Stupid People” or “not them”).  So don’t think that we are all going to nod our heads in unison regarding the time to resist having arrived.

But aside from the history lesson, what’s unnerving is our apparent consent to be made criminals so when those crappy politicians and their cronies show up they have the tools available to them to “legally” destroy those they disagree with.

If you’re not thinking about these things you should be.

If you’re in Colorado, put the bong down and think real hard about how you would feel if the Fed’s came knocking at your door right now.  While I think the argument regarding the second amendment is a little weightier than that, I’m just trying to relate.  I’m putting it in cartoon form… kind of like MSNBC.

Making sure everybody is “guilty of something” is a very old, and convenient, way of claiming legal authority to apply force to the population… while making sure the population acquiesces.

Not that I think any of the upstanding individuals in DC, or the local Capital near you, would do such things…  But judging by our current crop of politicians… the population who elected them is at a minimum, drunk.  And that same population is setting the stage to be proven stupid.
