Anyone who objects to real background checks for ALL gun purchases is an IDIOT!
And, yes I own guns, and was a member of the NRA back in the 1950’s before it was taken over by survivalist unregulated white trash militia nuts.

Comment to Editorial: In competing gun measures — Yes, on I-594; No on I-591 Support universal background checks for all gun sales. Initiative 594 moves Washington ahead. Initiative 591 is on the ballot to inhibit progress.
[This is what they think of you. Don’t forget that. This is not “reasoned discourse” in the sense of polite company. These people regard you as a “white trash” idiot. And they think you need to be “regulated”. I know where this sort of contempt leads. I won’t be going there. It will be far better for everyone concerned if this initiative is soundly defeated at the polls.
I also find it “interesting” that the Seattle Times editorial board considers it “progress” to criminalize taking a new shooter to the range and letting them use my guns for a few minutes without a background check and transfer paperwork each time the gun changes hands. It also applies to my loaning a gun to friend for a few days even if the friend was in fear of her abusive ex carrying out his death threat. That’s “progress” from the “progressive” mindset.
This incredible burden on gun owners and the right to keep and bear arms is very similar to I-676 in 1997 (it required “a valid handgun safety license” instead of a background check) . We used that screw up against them in the campaign and defeated them (see also here). I would say these people just don’t learn, but to the best of my knowledge none of the high level people who were active in I-676 are involved in I-594. Many of our people are veterans of that fight.
But I’m nearly certain this fight will be tougher than the I-676 fight. We were able to outspend our I-676 opponents. This time Bloomberg can easily dump whatever it takes to outspend us. Our strengths will be tens of thousands of volunteers, the veteran leaders, and millions of gun owners who will come to the polls.
The last fight was nasty. Our people had yard signs stolen every night from their yards and signs on public property in the Seattle area had to be replaced every week. Even though this was against the law the anti-gun people openly encouraged people to removed them because they were “unsightly.” Cars with pro-gun bumper stickers were vandalized.
The anti-gun people lied to the media. The media nearly ignored our 3000 person rally and gave “equal coverage” to the four counter protesters. The media used video of our assembly line making materials for doorknob hangers with a voice over saying the anti-gun people were a grassroots organization.
This fight will be just as nasty. The quote above is just the tip of iceberg. Expect vandalism. Expect to be called terrible names and be accused of terrible things. These people do not regard you and I as worthy of politeness or respect. They want you “reeducated” or eliminated.
Remember the words of Charlton Heston, “It is evil, and we must defeat it.”—Joe]
It’s a good thing Lothar dropped his NRA membership; the struggle against the blood dancers is tough enough without fifth column Fudds seeking to be the last eaten by the crocodile.
That assumes he’s not simply lying.
There are a fair number of dumb gun owners out there (those who vote for victim disarming candidates or policies, for example). But it’s hard to imagine someone as stupid and bigoted as Lothar actually being a gun owner.
With a name like Lothar I thought it appropriate to go all Godwin on him so he might have a chance to know where his philosophy will lead him.
Wer echte Hintergrund-Kontrollen für alle Waffenkäufe Objekte ist ein Idiot!
I’d do it in Fraktur if I could, just for effect.
“Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA. Ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State.”

I have never found a source for this, even though it expresses the Raza philosophy of the Nazi’s vis a vis der Volk and guns perfectly.
“Back in the ’50s, before the Democrat party was taken over by anti-civil rights blood dancers capitalizing on JFK’s assassination (by a communist loon with serious issues) to vitiate the Second Amendment.”
Fixed it for him.
It is pretty clear where this is leading. About half the population seeks to enable an out of control government to regulate, tax, infringe, control and intimidate the other, mostly tax paying half which would like nothing more than to be left alone to live their lives as guaranteed by the Constitution, in peace AND liberty. And, oh by the way, these same “safety” folks think nothing of launching an armed team of their STASI to raid your home, ransack your property and if you object (and in some cases even if you don’t), kill you.
Yeah, many of us know where this is headed. And “universal” background checks are a short cut to that destination.
Just another SUWTMN, proudly. And by the way, Lothar & company… I served your precious state, before it came completely unhinged. If you think about that for a minute, that probably gives you another reason to place me under surveillance or apprehend me for re-indoctrination or simply incarceration, because civilians shouldn’t know such things… Only, I’m not alone.
With regards to the vandalism, those little motion-activated ‘game cameras’ (available in sporting/ hunting stores) seem to work well at catching two-legged varmints on video. But they’re only good if you have non-corrupt police & justice system willing to actually arrest and prosecute the bastards.
Let us suppose that you are correct(suppose) who gets to decide who is competent to own firearms ? who gets to decide who gets to decide ? There is NO such thing as a limited inalienable right. You sir, are NOT an American.
