Quote of the day—Anonymous Conservative

The problem I see is, the left imported the Muslim threat. Then the leftists at Charlie Hebdo inflamed it with leftist snark to the point that it began shooting at them, and even killed innocent citizens in the Kosher Deli. Now they want everyone to “stand with them,” which really means fight the enemy they imported and angered, while they hide under the table, so they won’t have to face the consequences of their own stupidity.

Quote of the day—Paul Koning

Why should it be your responsibility as a seller to verify the intentions of the buyer any more than it is for the seller of a car or a crowbar?

The basis of this background checks notion is the idea of collective responsibility, the uncivilized idea that you should feel responsible for the wrong acts of someone else.

Comment to TIL there’s an equivalent to Godwin’s Law for gun ownership debates called Markley’s Law: As an online discussion of gun owners’ rights grows longer, the probability of an ad hominem attack involving penis size approaches 1
[It’s another Markley’s Law Monday!

To be fair, in context it’s difficult to say if he was being sarcastic or serious. I searched through hundreds of his comments on reddit and couldn’t find anything that supported the sarcasm hypothesis. There were some hints that the serious hypothesis were valid but nothing definitive.—Joe]

to Hundreds at Capitol protest new gun-purchase background checks
[This in regards to the I-594 rally in Olympia. This is what they think of you.

I would like to suggest they just keep on thinking that. Delusions are often functional right up to the point where reality obliterates them.—Joe]

Quote of the day—betterway006

Frankly I don’t really care what the bill says.  If it all impedes the manufacturing, sales, ownership, transfer, etc. of guns I’m in favor.

[The “bill” being commented on was initiative I-594 in Washington State.

I’ll do my best to make sure this is used as evidence against them at their trial.

Quote of the day—Publicoloa

The only reason we have background checks in the first place is so some politicians could get votes or funding, and so government had a mechanism of denying folks a Constitutionally enumerated Right. It does no practical good in keeping people with evil intent from causing harm or even acquiring weapons while it burdens and prevents the Rights of people who intend only good from having the best means of self defense.

When someone pulls out multiple master suppression techniques in their writings, odds are they plan on suppressing a group. Joe is fundamentally correct that these people would torture and murder us if they had the chance, or they would stand by as others did so for them.

Tyranny is never forced. It is an act of deliberate and mutual consent between ruler and subject. Refuse. Simple as that.

Comment to Refusal as a weapon. There is NO unconstitutional law that Mike Bloomberg can buy that we cannot nullify with armed civil disobedience.
[It’s not quite as simple as that. There are contingencies to plan for. And there may be consequences to deal with. But refusal is a powerful weapon. I do agree that in order for tyranny to succeed there must be a great deal of cooperation between the ruler and the subject.

And that means that every tiny refusal helps. Every tiny cooperation hurts.—Joe]

Quote of the day—Steve

Guns and ammunition need to be regulated on performance and capacity and not styling cues. Limiting weapons to single shot breach loaders would keep the second amendment happy (and save a bunch of lives).

You … keep yourself armed to the teeth and have committed yourself to death, mayhem, and destruction. You are thoroughly corrupted and your ilk has caused the deaths of these poor young kids at Sandy Hook that you call “so called dead children.” You are depraved, paranoid, and heartless. Wrap yourself in your warped misunderstanding of the 2nd Amendment as you polish your weapons waiting for more innocent blood to be spilled because of your irrationality and murderous ideology.
