  1. Murderous bastards! They WANT people killed! Not only are they lying about wanting to take away your guns, they’re lying about why they want to do it. They want blood on their hands — the blood of victims they rendered defenseless in the face of predators.

  2. Whenever someone says “Ban handguns,” my reply is always, ALWAYS, “Excellent! Let’s start with disarming all police officers.”

    Regardless of how they reply, it always makes for a fun conversation with them on the defensive.

    • Maybe not. Some of these people think that disarmed police as they supposedly have in England is a good idea.
      You might also use disarming movie stars’ body guards, or politicians’ secret service guards as examples.

      • But England is starting to re-arm their police. The classic, nostalgic image of the unarmed Bobbie is being rendered obsolete and ineffective by the threats they face from criminals and terrorists.

        • The British bobby, when armed with a pistol, carries concealed. Not all of them carry. One of the problems they have is that if one is forced to shoot someone, they become pariahs to the other bobbies. Lots of social pressure makes the situation stressful for those involved. They don’t carry off duty. Gun and ammo stays at the station house, until issued. Every round must be accounted for at end of shift.

          There are also gun cars. These are teams that are heavily armed, and positioned in areas for quick response to major problems. I haven’t heard much about them.
          My info on this whole subject mostly came from a couple bobbie bloggers a few years ago. Lost track of them due to a computer problem. So, might be a little out of date, by now.

      • Start with suggesting the disarming of the Secret Service to see their heads explode.

  3. “Never forget, even for an instant, that the one and only reason anyone has for taking your gun away is to make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn’t let him do if you were equipped to prevent it. This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policemen, bureaucrats, and politicians.” — Alexander Hope, in the novel “Hope” by Aaron Zelman and L. Neil Smith.

  4. Hmm, that’s kind of what it’s like in Canada… So if it works, then why did two RCMP officers get shot in Edmonton last week?

    … Because criminals don’t care about laws… And the disarmament crowd doesn’t want you to think that way…

    • Canada doesn’t have a ban on handguns.

      They have a ban on handguns below a certian barrel length… and a carry permit system that is Hawaii/NJ restrictive. But they do have handguns.

      They also used to have registration of long guns, but removed that relatively recently if I recall.

      But that shows that even Canda is too “Wild West” for the antis.

      • You’re correct, Canada ditched the long gun registry, just in the last few years.

        Why? Not because Canada suddenly developed their own NRA or because Canada’s gun ownership rate suddenly rose to critical mass levels, but simply because the registry was extremely expensive to operate and maintain and throughout its entire history had not contributed anything meaningful in solving crimes.

        Canada’s lawmakers rightfully saw it as a black hole for limited funds that produced zero ROI, and rightfully nixed it.

      • I know they allow handguns, first hand gun I ever fired was a Colt Gold cup, that was back home in Canada, they removed long gun registration on non restricted long arms.
        The point I was getting at is this, if people choose to break the law they will, adding more laws and banning things will not change behaviors.

  5. Registration serves no purpose other than eventual confiscation.

    Does it prevent crimes? No.
    Does it solve crimes? No.
    Does it reduce suicides or negligent discharges? No.

    Is it a target list of gun owners for taxation, regulation, or confiscation? Yes.

  6. A ban on government, license and register all Democrats and sterilize all Liberals there are three more ideas
