Eventually, the president will overreach, signing an order for gun confiscation, euphemistically called, “mandatory buybacks.” Antifa and their ilk will flood the streets in support of seizing these “weapons of war.” Media will declare, “It’s the will of the people.”
And for the right, that will be the last straw (plastic or paper).
The left doesn’t understand that every gun owner is a single-issue-voter; millions will refuse to give up their guns. And, many gun owners in this country will not go “meekly into the night,” there will be “rage” against what they will see as a usurpation of their constitutional rights.
The author, Kurt Schlichter, addresses this attitude, and even brings up “penis size” in the gun debate. His claim is that “The Elites” despise “The Normals” and many even want us dead. He makes some good points. A. R. G. @AdamRobGoCop provides us with another data point supporting Schlichter thesis.—Joe]
When you’ve made the case that one Amendment does not apply to an entire group of people, you’ve made the case for the rest of the Amendments not applying. Ultimately you’ve devolved back into FDR Internment Camp rationale. Or border detainment rationale. You’re doing the same thing, just from a different front.
The only leaps and bounds necessary are for Leftists to take, in convincing themselves they are not Xenophobic or racist.
But I almost forgot… it’s not real Xenophobia or racism when it’s from the Left.
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.

Comment by Carl Stevenson to Gun cartoon of the day
The political left is experiencing a mass delusion on a scale which is beyond anything I have knowledge of. Some people, at the higher levels, are certainly guilty of deliberate dishonesty. A very large percentage are guilty of willful ignorance. Some are guilty of simple ignorance. And, finally, some are useful idiots.
Tallahassee police were called around 8:35 a.m. to Dyke Industries, a building materials company located on Maryland Circle in an industrial park off Hartsfield Road.
When officers arrived, they found a number of stabbing victims and began treating them on the scene, said Officer Damon Miller, a spokesman for TPD. It was not immediately clear whether anyone was killed. Five people were taken to Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare and were being treated.
A suspect is in custody, though police gave no description of the person or a possible motive for the violence. A source told the Democrat the suspect is currently being interrogated.
Most large employers I have worked for ban possession of knives as well as guns. I wonder how this happened.
The democrats will stop at nothing to push their agendas. I’d love to know how many acts of violence have been orchestrated by them to push gun control. I suspect the results would match our suspicions.
Red Nation Rising @RedNationRising Tweeted on September 8, 2019 [Back in the late 1990s this was a common suspicion. I never heard anyone say they thought the shooter themselves planned it as a means to pass gun control bills. They mostly suspected it was some sort of mind control or “programming” of mentally unstable people. I thought it extremely unlikely.
The probabilities increased dramatically with the Las Vegas shooting. A rich, old, white guy was a different demographic than we had ever seen before. There was picture of the murderer at a Hillary rally wearing a vagina hat but there was little else to gives us clues as to his political persuasion or possible motivation. The expense, planning, and horrendous number of victims indicated something well beyond what other murderers had demonstrated.
Then there was another mass murder, I forget which one, with a manifesto explicitly advocating more gun control. There are no more probabilities. There is only certainty that it has happened. The questions are now, “How many times has it happened?” and “How many more times will it happen before we can put an end to, or dramatically reduce, their incredibly evil activities?”—Joe]
Did it every occur to these people that if gun owners are going to be treated like terrorists some of them might decide it’s time to act like terrorists? Probably. That could even be the prime objective.
That the Board of Supervisors, unanimously, voted to declare the nations oldest civil right organization a “domestic terrorist organization” tells us a lot more about the Board of Supervisors than it does the NRA and its members.—Joe]
While weaponizing laws against political opponents may buy votes among the faithful in the short term, it delegitimizes laws and their enforcers in the eyes of their targets. That further reduces any possibility of compliance with laws that already have a history of being honored only in the breach. When the dust settles, the government ends up looking weak and the law pointless. And the country will be more divided than ever.
Maybe O’Rourke and his colleagues will eventually be able to turn their gun confiscation wishes into law, but history is very clear that most people will defy the prohibition.

[Not only will such a prohibition be defied, there is a greater risk. It’s possible the people will implement a prohibition on prohibiting politicians. If they do, one should expect the people will have a higher success rate than that achieved by the politicians in banning guns.
Let’s keep them from being elected, get some good court rulings, and avoid the whole mess.—Joe]
Just to clarify. Never owned a gun, never touched a gun, never will, so if u need to keep your semi-automatics because of people like me with my love of democracy, anti racism, women’s rights, my protest signs and my superior Wit, I’m thinking small dicks abound. #NRABloodMoney
