Democrats don’t want to take your guns away. They just want assault weapons banned which nobody needs an assault weapon. Nobody is coming for you guns dude.

[Ignoring the typos we still have some problems comprehending this. One could presume they mean Democrats don’t want to take all our guns. Just the “assault weapons”. As if this would put us at ease for them to ban the most popular firearm type currently sold.

It’s the logical equivalent of saying, “We aren’t going to take all of your children away from you. Just your firstborn.”

One could claim they are unimaginably stupid and/or ignorant. One could claim they are trolling for entertainment value. I might buy into either of those hypothesis if it didn’t happen so frequently.

Another hypothesis is that they are unconsciously or deliberately utilizing deflection. I think this is most likely. Such people should be treated as mentally defective and/or evil.—Joe]

All your guns

Democrats are in some sort of crazed frenzy:

If you want to see how extreme the Democrats have gotten on gun control, you just had to listen to a House Judiciary Committee hearing last week.

It is one thing for Democrats such as Beto O’Rourke and Rep. Eric Swalwell (R-CA) [This should be a ‘D’.–Joe] to call for confiscating AR-15s and civilian versions of AK-47s. But in the committee hearing this past Wednesday, the loudest applause came when Democratic witnesses called for bans on all or at least the vast majority of guns.

“I believe that any weapon that can be used to hunt individuals should be banned,” announced Charlottesville Police Chief RaShall M. Brackney in the hearing. Brackney and other witnesses showed just how far the Democratic Party has gone on gun control in only a few years.

Brackney was given a chance by Congressman Greg Steube (R-FL) to correct the record if she might have misspoken, but she only doubled down. Steube pointed out that any firearm could be used to hunt people down, and Brackney responded by repeating the point. She only clarified that police and the military would still be able to have guns.

Ten years ago, if a Democrat witness had suggested banning all guns, one can only imagine that Democratic congressmen would be desperate to disassociate themselves from those comments. But not now. Not one, single Democrat expressed any disapproval.

The only good thing about this is that they have overreached. This will make them vulnerable at the polls and in the courts. If we play our cards right they might even be slapped down harder than in 1994.

But don’t ever let anyone get away with telling you that no one wants to take your guns. These monsters have come out of the closet and shown their true colors for everyone to see.

Quote of the day—Will Wilkinson

They’re unmoved by the mounting heap of slaughtered innocents, by schoolkids missing recess to rehearse being hunted. It’s a sacrifice they’re willing to let other Americans make, because they think democracy’s coming for their power, and they’re right.

Why an Assault Weapons Ban Hits Such a Nerve With Many Conservatives
[It’s nice of Wilkinson to admit a few things:

  1. Rights are irrelevant in his misshapen view of our country as a democracy instead of a republic.
  2. It is the intent of the political left to remove conservatives/deplorables from power.
  3. It is the intent of the political left to confiscate the most popular firearms in this country.

These admissions provide more validation for the point made the other day. They are not after your guns. They are after you.

I look forward to his trial.—Joe]

[This was in regards to this Tweet from The Babylon Bee:

It is, of course, a reference to Beto saying that as POTUS, if given the chance, he would demand a “mandatory buyback” of all privately owned AR-15s.

I agree with Knox. The Babylon Bee has been a great satire site and I will miss the humor. But if the skill they have demonstrated continues in their new endeavors they will do well and I also wish them the best.

At a recent shooting match I asked a few people what they would do if Beto got his way. The near universal response was a laugh and them saying something similar to, “What AR-15s? I don’t have any AR-15s.” Also mentioned was something to the effect of a “Tragic boating accident.”—Joe]

Truth

Via Matthew Bracken @ Matt_Bracken:

The abuse of psychiatry was legendary:

Expect little difference if implemented here. What is going to be the default decision of a judge or psychologist? Risk letting a potential mass shooter keep their guns or risk an nonviolent person losing their guns?

YEP. I’M COMING FOR YOUR AR15

You heard me. No apologies. The same reason you don’t need a lion to protect your home, is why you don’t need a rifle that shoots at 3X the speed of sound and splits concrete like ice. It’s an unreasonable risk.

Quote of the day—Kshama Sawant

We need commonsense gun control measures, like banning semi-automatic weapons, to prevent gun violence incidents like the one that happened at 28th and Jackson in the Central District on Friday night.

For example, community members are advocating for traffic-countering measures like raised flower beds or speed bumps on 21st avenue.

I can think of no reason for a resident of this country to own a handgun or an assault rifle, as these firearms are only used to shoot at other humans. Therefore, the tougher the laws for these types of weapons, the safer we all are.

Tweeted on April 10th, 2019
[Swalwell wants the Democrat nomination for President of the U.S. His tag line is “Go big. Be bold. Do good.”

With his attitude toward gun ownership he’s got the “go big” and “be bold” part covered. But that has eliminated the possibility of “do good”. It’s no use trying to explain in words to him. The courts and voters are going to have to teach him that lesson.

Swalwell also has the nickname of “Nuke ‘em” because he said he would use nukes against U.S. citizens who fought gun confiscation.

They want you dead

Yesterday Mike Bash (actor, producer, writer) tweeted at me:

Lol read up about Waco. Y’all will never win, but its cute you think you could! That would help rid the country of gun nuts faster though…

This is what anti-gun people think of you, the country needs to be rid of “gun nuts” and their families. Burning gun owners and their families alive is entirely appropriate to him.

Good to know.

What he apparently doesn’t realize is that among the lessons we learned from Waco and numerous other incidents throughout history is to never give up your guns.

(1 )(a) “Assault weapon” means any:

(A) Semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has at least one of the following:

(i) Any grip of the weapon, including a pistol grip, a thumbhole stock or any other stock, the use of which would allow an individual to grip the weapon, resulting in any finger on the trigger hand in addition to the trigger finger being directly below any portion of the action of the weapon when firing;

(B) Semiautomatic pistol, or any semiautomatic, centerfire or rimfire rifle with a fixed magazine, that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition;

This is despite the Heller decision which specifically protected a semi-auto pistol and almost explicitly protected rifles of the type targeted by this law.
