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.
