We have too many high powered weapon. It’s not that hard. All guns are a potential problem in this country, but there’s too many out there to recall them now. However, high powered guns can be a start for tying to get a handle on the gun violence problem affecting America.

If not, then instead of ignorance, perhaps it’s deliberate lies.—Joe]
What’s her definition of “high-powered?”
When friends start harping on “High-powered” AK-47’s, I remind them that the AK’s cartridge is pretty similar to the .30-30, which many of them own!
Well then. Maybe Kim will suit up with Nancy, Chucky, and Sandy. Get in the stack and start removing them mean looking guns from all us ignorant rednecks that just can’t get with the program?
Joe, have you ever had contact with one of these people that actually understood the magnitude of what they propose?
And what would happen to those trying such a thing?
Guess I answered my own question. Obviously not.
When I ask them for their analysis of the numbers they deflect, resort to insults, or ignore me.
And just think. If Diane Feinstein would have gotten her way. And told us all to turn them all in, back in 95. This would all be over.
We might have saved a whole generation from the fate of being this ignorant?
Alas, they never stood a chance.
She probably thinks an AR-15 is “high powered” when in fact it’s a modest power light weight rifle.
I’m not even sure what she’s trying to convey. Either her grammar is terrible, she did not check if the talk to text was correct or English is not her first language and she ran it through a translator.
Universal, wholesale coercion has always been the goal whenever restrictions on private weapons ownership (or on speech, religion, travel, property et al) are advocated. Some people might even believe the rationalizations for such restrictions, but that is another issue and should be treated separately. The point is that the rationalizations are a tactic, a tool, for achieving a pre-determined goal and so, in a sense, they are entirely beside the point. Deprive the enemy of one rationalization and he’ll pull out two more which he’s already prepared for the situation.
Therefore we must be able to separate the goal from the tactics used to achieve it. Then we need to separate the psychological, spiritual and other reasons why some people are vulnerable to those tactics. Therefore there are three things we must see and understand as separate components of enemy planning and attention;
Like the end-zone on a football field, the goal is ever-present. If we don’t see it or understand it, the enemy certainly does. He’s obsessed with it continually, even while we, playing defense, are looking in the opposite direction.
The tactics are variable according to situation and mood, but mostly focus on generating fear, hatred, intimidation and resentment, all under the guise of caring and compassion. Thus if you’re compassionate, goes the argument, you’re afraid, you resent, you hate, you’re intimidated and you choose to intimidate in kind. That all makes you “righteous”, or “woke”, under the enemy’s system.
The vulnerability, while often linked with ignorance, is not necessarily dependent upon it. One can intellectually understand something quite well and yet have that understanding nullified by emotion. If the last two years has taught us anything at all, it is that. Of course, if you haven’t the intellectual understanding, all the easier, because less nullification effort is required.
And the nullification continues apace because we don’t understand the depth, the scope, nor the scale of this war, nor do we fully understand, nor will we allow ourselves to understand, the enemy’s end game (which is mass death). And we have the proof of history so we know this is true.
The Protestant Reformation came extremely close to understanding these things. Indeed there were at one time whole societies which understood every aspect, but alas the Reformation has itself been nullified through the very system described above. And so enters the fourth and most important component in this war;
4. The solution.
“Here is the patience of the saints; here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” Revelation 14:12
That’s only two things. It may not be easy, but it is simple.
