I’ve held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I had it. It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving and the bullet that is utilized, a .50 caliber, these kinds of bullets, need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street.
This is the world that the gun banners want you to live in. After they ban the guns, they want to ban anyone from renting a gun from a gun club, taking multiple training classes to get certified, and using that gun in organized pistol competition.
They hate you. Never forget that. They can’t be bargained with. They can’t be reasoned with. They don’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.
Saying we’re “rebelling” against the elite is to assume that they’re the authority. No; they’re the rebels, see. One does not “rebel against” robbers, rapists, arsonists and vandals. One upholds the law. Upholding the Law of Liberty is not “rebellion”. Violating it is.
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.
I will share more information about White House calls about gun legislation at the Gun Rights Policy Conference this weekend. It will be live streamed on the Second Amendment Foundation’s Facebook page.
I got call from White House staff. Gave me details on what the President is considering to support with regard to gun legislation. They considered my comments and ideas and we were on the same page. I like the red lines that they have drawn to protect Second Amendment rights.
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]
By saying the nation’s oldest civil rights organization “has no place in the White House” they tell us they have no respect for the 1st and 2nd Amendments. They are advocates for, and participants in, the destruction of the Bill of Rights. Such people belong in prison.
I find it telling there is no evidence of corruption presented and they tell a deliberate lie. The NRA does not represent the gun industry. It represents its five million+ members.
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]
