I couldn’t begin to count the number of times I’ve been told either directly or indirectly by anti-gun activists and politicians that nobody is going to take guns away from U.S. citizens. Frequently if you listen to them for another 30 seconds they will tell you the guns they plan to ban next. When confronted with this discrepancy they will tell you what they really meant was nobody was going to take all the guns away. And there is no slippery slope.
Yeah. That really puts me at ease.
I guess I should ignore little things like this police chief saying Americans can be completely disarmed within a generation.
Or political pundits outlining How to Ban Guns:
- The very first thing we need is a national registry. We need to know where the guns are, and who has them… I think about 6 months should be enough time.
- Make private sales illegal.
- Remember those ATF form 4473s? … So, we get those logbooks, and cross reference the names and addresses with the new national registry.
- Now that the vast majority are registered, we can do what we will. One good first step would be to close the registry to new registrations.
- An immediate, national ban on concealed carry.
- A ban on internet sales of guns and ammunition is a no brainer.
- I know this seems harsh, but this is the only way we can be truly safe. I don’t want my kids being shot at by a deranged NRA member.
If you read the fine print you will find he has zero regard for the Fourth Amendment as well as the Second. Neither are even identified as a speed bump in his grand plan.
The guy is clearly delusional as he apparently expects gun owners will willingly cooperate with the gun registration if they “make it super easy to do.”
And if his grand plan, with him given credit for it, were to be accepted and implementation began it’s unlikely his kids would be shot. I’m pretty certain all his worries would be very short lived. They would be very intense, but short lived.

“I’m concerned that other guy who bought a half dozen assault weapons, registered two hunting rifles, and belongs to the NRA/GOA. He’s the guy who warrants a raid.” — Scary stuff.
“7.I know this seems harsh, but this is the only way we can be truly safe. I don’t want my kids being shot at by a deranged NRA member.”
So, where is the research that establishes a connection between NRA membership and criminal misuse of firearms?
It’s super-seekrit, doncha know. The research happened inside his brain, right next to the neurons that think the people exiting the big office building and putting on sunglasses are sending him seekrit messages, too.
Such delusional thinking deserves a visit, too.
NSA has had that database for a very long time.
I like this thought: “A ban on internet sales of guns and ammunition is a no brainer.”
Apparently, he even knows he has mental issues. They have treatments for that. And it continues to absolutely astound me how these nitwits can claim on the one hand that us gun-owners are violent, bloodthirsty, and can’t be trusted – yet all you have to do is pass a law and we’ll willingly join hand-in-hand, singing Kum-Ba-Yah, and line up in front of the smelter to toss our guns in, while they smilingly look on. Dream on dude, your dementia is very deep-seated.
What is amazing is that they think that they’re fooling anyone with a lukewarm IQ. Their tactics have been around for a long time.
“A system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie.”
– Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
I hope that quote has been vetted, it’s as perfect for the current situation as many Washington and Lincoln quotes that can’t be sourced. We don’t need to give the nuts any ammunition when they seem quite able to make up $hi7 without our help.
“Nobody is going to take your gun”, and “Herr Hitler is an honorable man who only wants what is best for his people.”*
*Any of a number of hoodwinked Americans in the 30’s, most of whom bought his lies about how Fascism was a third way between Capitalism and Socialism, retaining the “best” of each and the “worst” of neither.

Ahh, good ol’ sporks. He genuinely makes me laugh out loud, because either he is such a foaming-at-mouth reactionary that other liberals are telling him to sit down and shut up before he makes them look bad — in which case, he’s only helping our cause — or he’s a gunnie who is trolling them with such elegant Swiftian satire that they aren’t getting the joke.
Either way, he makes me giggle.
