Quote of the day—Miss Esther P. Codwalloper

Only ridiculous and hysterical people oppose gun registration, so far as I’ve seen.

There has been no sound argument against it presented.

[I guess Miss Codwalloper hasn’t read the story of The Belgium Corporal. Or perhaps her case of cranial rectum inversion is so advanced she hasn’t heard how the IRS abused it’s powers. And she had to have totally missed out on the failed Canadian gun registry.

Then there is the little case of U.S. v. Haynes where it was ruled unconstitutional that convicted felons could be required to register their firearms.

I have to conclude Codwalloper has nothing but crap for brains.—Joe]

  1. As “Red Dawn” points out, we already have a gun registry in the US — the Forms 4473 that we all fill out at the gun store. The one difference is that it doesn’t — yet — apply to private sales, so you have at least a small chance of avoiding being shot when they come for your guns. And this, of course, is why the bad guys are so fanatically pushing to apply 4473 to every gun transaction.

  2. “But it can’t happen here.”

    That’s because we’re fighting tooth and nail to keep it from happening here. I doubt Russia or China or Africa or South America can put together an army with the economic foundation of the American Army in 1945 to help us if they get their way and background check registration confiscation happens here and the light of liberty is extinguished.
    I just don’t see the rest of the world caring about liberty. Freedom from fleas, yes. Free thoughts and liberty, why, that might offend someone, and we can’t have that.!

    • Actually, people in other parts of the world do care about liberty.
      The NSA spying thing is world wide news. I’ve seen it discussed at length in Dutch papers. The German parliament is asking questions of the prime minister about it.
      Yesterday’s paper reported on demonstrations in several countries against Internet censorship. That included Singapore, which seems to have some of the most thoroughly cowed citizens anywhere.
      The Turkish government is trying to abolish free speech, and citizens are pushing back — in spite of water cannons and large quantities of tear gas being deployed against them.
      Yes, people elsewhere certainly do care. They have so far to go they might set their sights lower than we do. For example, Western Europe is nowhere near where we are but does well enough that much of the population accepts what they have. But China, Russia, or other countries like that — those governments need to worry. (And they do.)

    • I don’t believe the rest of the world thinks guns = freedom. Seriously. In a lot of the worst parts of the world, they have guns and they don’t have freedom.

      • In most of the world, the wrong guys have guns, and the right guys are not allowed to.
        I suspect you’re right, though. It shows the effectiveness of a century of brainwashing. Fortunately, there are people doing good work to counteract this. This blog here is one; Oleg Volk is another (especially since his tools are images rather than words, and where he does use some words they come in a number of different languages).

      • “I don’t believe the rest of the world thinks guns = freedom. Seriously.”
        How do you propose backing up a generalization concerning 6.7 billion people?

        “In a lot of the worst parts of the world, they have guns and they don’t have freedom.”
        Which parts of the world? How are you defining worst? Who is they? Who is they again? How are you defining freedom? Polity score? UDHR?

        Your first statement is an opinion and you are, of course, welcome to it. The second statement is phrased as a fact and you are not entitled to those without evidence.
