Quote of the day—Phoebe Maltz Bovy

Ban guns. All guns. Get rid of guns in homes, and on the streets, and, as much as possible, on police. Not just because of San Bernardino, or whichever mass shooting may pop up next, but also not not because of those. Don’t sort the population into those who might do something evil or foolish or self-destructive with a gun and those who surely will not. As if this could be known—as if it could be assessed without massively violating civil liberties and stigmatizing the mentally ill. Ban guns! Not just gun violence. Not just certain guns. Not just already-technically-illegal guns. All of them.

It’s Time to Ban Guns. Yes, All of Them.
[Via email from Barron.

Don’t ever let anyone get away with telling you than no one wants to take your guns.

There is no political hope for these anti-gun people to accomplish their goals. There is no culture support for their goals. In fact it is just the opposite. Support for the right to keep and bear arms has not been stronger in decades and these people know that. When certain conditions are all met people who are absolutely, without any doubt, proven wrong their reaction is to increase proselyting their failed beliefs. Those conditions have been met and we are now seeing that increased proselyting. Read the book.

  1. Ban all the islamic violence and terrorism!

    Ban all the criminals and their activities!

    Ban all the Democrats / Progressives / Socialists / Nanny-Dictators!

    I have equal chance of realizing my dreams as Phoebe does.

  2. The people who say this are the same folks that think the government can print its way to success, tax rates can be raised and the taxed won’t change their behavior, naturally occurring plant food that is necessary for life on the planet is toxic, words are just the same as deeds, that men and women are equally physically capable, and life is fair.

    Sad in a pathetic sort of way, delusional in a clinical mental-problem way, or ordinary crap-for-brains, it makes no difference; they cannot be trusted with any political power or they will order the execution of any that dare say the emperor has no clothes.

  3. Without any apparent irony, in the middle of a call for a massive violation of civil liberties, she makes this statement:

    “Don’t sort the population into those who might do something evil or foolish or self-destructive with a gun and those who surely will not. As if this could be known—as if it could be assessed without massively violating civil liberties and stigmatizing the mentally ill.”

    Self awareness is not only not this woman’s forte, it’s her pianissimo.
