Quote of the day—williamdiamon

To suggest a criminal will submit to a background check has to be the worst argument for gun-control ever, it requires a disconnect from reality.

    • That’s “Social Justice”. The criminal mind (including the mind of the social engineer, but I repeat myself) has been so oppressed, so discriminated against, so reduced to second and third class status, that it seeks “justice”. It wants retaliation against America’s founding. It wants to be set “free” from the constraints of the constitution, which of course is a “charter of negative rights” and therefore totally unfair.

      Everything we talk about here? It’s that simple. You want to oppress evil, and evil of course wants to be free. That makes you a bigot, because you reject “freedom”.

    • Ayn Rand pointed this out:

      “There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kinds of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of lawbreakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.” — Floyd Ferris, in Atlas Shrugged
