Any Excuse Will Do

Quote of the Day

Parker said that even though the proposed bill would not have prevented the 33-year-old gunman who committed the mass shooting from purchasing a gun, she still thinks it’s a step in the right direction.

Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker makes statement in support of proposed gun control measure (yahoo.com)

I find this very telling. They find excuses to implement gun control knowing that the proposed law would make zero difference in the examples they use to get the law passed. Gun control is not about making the general public safer. And they know this as they push for yet more gun control.

It is the same will almost all anti-gun activists and politicians. It has been going on since at least the “Brady Act”, which had that law been in effect before Brady and President Regan were shot would have made zero difference in the perpetrator committing his crime.

How can you tell if an anti-gun activists is lying? Yes, their lips are moving. It is an essential part of their culture.

Prepare and respond appropriately.

  1. The Left, just like “governments,” are completely oriented toward “process” and “procedure” and do not consider “results.” It is assumed that “correct process” and “right procedure” will accomplish some sort of “desired results.” Whatever it does, or does not, accomplish is irrelevant to “the process.” Activating and executing “the process” fulfills the Leftists’ requirements because there is no mechanism, structure, or requirement, to measure “process” or “procedure” against “results.”

    The Word Salad, accompanied by Smoke, Mirrors, and Emoting, is all that’s necessary. Mentally, emotionally, institutionally, mathematically, there is no mechanism to link “intent” to “accomplishment” nor will there ever be.

    In other words, “Forget it Jake, it’s Lefties.”

    The only solution is to keep such people as far from levers of power as possible and fully occupied by such trivial pursuits as they find entertaining. Perhaps some private enclaves in which they can develop and implement “processes” and “procedures” upon each other (I hear Martha’s Vineyard and Hermosa Beach may be available)

    • “The only solution is to keep such people as far from levers of power as possible…”

      I would suggest that the best way to accomplish that is to destroy as many of these levers of power as we can and distribute the rest as widely as possible, because no one can be trusted with them in their concentrated form. It’s important to keep power subcritical to avoid the inevitable chain reaction.

      • I agree wholeheartedly…..but…..there will be, however few, and however impotent, some levers of power, because the Constitution provides for them. The Founders believed, wrongly as it turned out, that limiting the number and scope of said levers would be enough.

        There is no substitute for an engaged and responsible population interested in maintaining control over its government, and willing to exercise its authority, by whatever means necessary, to ensure compliance with the Constitution. John Adams said “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Until we have a solid majority composed of those people, we’re going to continue fighting a rear guard action.

    • It’s a nice thought Francisco. But this is no time to be generous to “stupid with power” crowd.
      It’s way passed time too; “Make government afraid again”.
      We should always remember these are the same people that are taxing us to death, inflating away our savings, demanding we take the clot-shot, invading our country with criminal alien-soon to be cannibals, and disarming us every chance they get so as to kill us easier.
      The bitch don’t need Martha’s vineyard. She needs a millstone around her neck and thrown off the back of a ship over some oceanic abysmal.
      Never to be mentioned again.
      (Sorry, I’m old and get riled up easy.)

        • Concrete construction blocks are more common, and cheaper, but they are more air than concrete, and surprisingly delicate when roughly handled. I have downgraded them for water disposal purposes. YMMV.

          • Ya, you guys are spot on. Waste of millstones and concrete block is a lot cheaper and works just as well.
            That’s if Joe doesn’t have a corner on all of it for his bunker!)

          • “…and works just as well.”

            Not so much. That was my point. They break easily in transport and handling.
