I have really had it with the unknowledgeable, ignorant and political opportunists attempts to subvert the Law-of-the-land, i.e., Our Constitution. As one can see by the title of my essay, I don’t give a rats-ass about your “feelings.” What I do care about are my Rights and your Rights. I haven’t heard one single argument from the anti-gunners for solving the problem of mass-shootings in these “Gun-Free Zones” (Thanks Joe Biden you IDIOT).
The “solutions” offered by these liberal/Leftist, and yes, some “conservatives,” seem to center around the Repeal of the Second Amendment. This alone demonstrates the complete ignorance of these uneducated American idiots. Allow me to educate you about the Bill of Rights (NOT the Bill of “needs”).
The “Bill of Rights”, as enshrined in our Constitution, is what is considered to be a “negative” list of Rights. That is, this list of Rights, places Restrictions upon the GOVERNMENT not The People. It, the Bill of Rights “codifies” Our God-given or “Natural Rights.” In other words, while the Constitution can be changed (through a complex and long process), even IF the Second Amendment were repealed, it DOES NOT make that Right go away. We the People would STILL have the Right to self-defense with guns. To argue the opposite would be akin to divesting ourselves of Christianity/Bible then stating that it is now okay to commit murder or steal your neighbor’s property.
I’m tired of these spoiled, entitled little brats with ZERO life experience, much less ANY formal education or adult job experience dictate to me or anyone else, the laws of the land. They’re CHILDREN. I’m sick of the, “If you don’t agree with us, you “HATE” children.” No. I don’t agree with you because, (a) you don’t know what you’re talking about and, (b) Yes, You ARE children and the adults run things, NOT you.
Take, for example, the Idiot known as David Hogg. His recent antics of “die-ins” do nothing more than harm businesses engaged in LEGAL commerce by interfering with said commerce. His minion followers BREAK the LAW. Now, he has a ridiculous “5 point plan” for “ending gun violance.” Hey, Davey, first of all, it’s “violence” not “violance.” Please allow me to answer to each of his five points with reality and the Rule of Law.
Point 1. “CDC funding for research into gun “violance.”
First of all, the CDC’s (Center for Disease Control) mission is:
“CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.
CDC increases the health security of our nation. As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats. To accomplish our mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.”
Firearms are NOT bacteria nor viral in nature and as such Do Not cause ANY biological disease process. Therefore, firearms are outside of the bailiwick of the CDC’s responsibility and mission.
Point 2. “Universal Background Checks.”
What does that even mean? You go to a gun shop to purchase a gun, you undergo a Federal background check. You purchase a gun online and the gun is shipped to a Federally LICENSED gun dealer where you are subject to a Federally Mandated criminal background check. You go to a gun show where there are Licensed gun dealers who perform a background check before you can purchase the gun. There is No Such Thing as a “gun show loophole.” What Hogg and all of his ilk demand, is the end of Private sales between adults. This will NEVER end as the end result is that people like me will still trade/sell/pass down Our legally purchased firearms as we see fit. Some people operate “off-grid” as much as possible and don’t think, and rightly so, any government has the right to interfere with private commerce. Again, We the People REFUSE to COMPLY. Criminals do not go to gun shops or gun shows to buy firearms. They buy them from other criminals who stole them from someone else. -Hey, maybe we can demand “universal car sales” (all private car sales through licensed dealers) to help prevent DUI deaths?
Point 3. “Digitization of ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms) Records.”
So, now they demand that ATF create a National database of ALL firearms manufactured, imported, sold…etc. This is ALREADY being done. What the opposition demands are what is forbidden under Federal law. They want a central gun registration computerized database of ALL citizens gun purchases. They demand a system where YOU and I will be required by law to provide to the government a list of every firearm we possess and when, how and or we dispose of Our property. I’m all for the ATF having modern systems in order for them to do their jobs efficiently as possible since we the taxpayers are paying their salaries. That being said, I and MILLIONS of Americans WILL NEVER register any firearm with any government agency.
Point 4. “High-Capacity” magazine ban.
This is pointless. Exactly, what is the definition of “high capacity?” So-called “high capacity” magazines are referred to as “Standard capacity” in the industry. In fact, with regards to the AR-15, AK-47 or ANY other modern sporting rifle and, some pistols, magazines with lower capacity are more expensive than “standard capacity” magazines. Magazine capacity has absolutely NOTHING to do with crime frequency or lethality. One could make a law to restrict magazine capacity to 7 or 10 rounds (like in a few states like NY and CT). It’s like none of these idiots have never heard of “re-loading.”
As you can see, with just a little practice, one can reload and be back on target very quickly! Smaller capacity magazines make ZERO difference to a trained shooter.
And couple that with non-compliance, and you’re “pissing in the wind.” We the People will continue to REFUSE to COMPLY. As Proven in NJ this past month, after New Jersey implemented a new state law banning all “high-capacity” magazines requiring all citizens (of course, law enforcement IS Exempted), to turn in all now illegal magazines to local law enforcement. Out of the MILLIONS of magazines, ZERO was “turned in.” The law-abiding People have reached their limits and are engaging in their own civil disobedience by Refusing to Comply.
Point 5. “A Total Ban on “Assault Weapons.”
I’m not going to bemoan you with how absurd and uneducated it is to define a “modern sporting rifle” as an “assault rifle” as I have covered this in a previous essay. https://gunfighter32908.com/2018/02/24/please-just-shut-the-fuck-up-already/
Since 1986, it has been ILLEGAL under Federal law to manufacture or sell a firearm that is capable of Fully-Automatic fire for sale in the U.S. except for the military and law enforcement. It is legal for one to purchase ($20,000+) a “pre-ban” (1986) machinegun by a citizen only after a lengthy criminal background check and obtaining a “tax stamp” from the government.
Your average AR-15 style rifle is NOT an “assault rifle.” Semi-automatic guns have been around for over 100 years.
This whole argument is based on “feelings.” Feelings manipulated by the left and other anti-gun grabbers who have no problem using the dead bodies of children to push their political agenda. And, the children left behind are too inexperienced and stupid to be anything other than useful idiots, tools of the left.
