They Don't Reduce Crime!

As is noted in the linked article, gun buybacks get many headlines, but do NOTHING to reduce crime. In fact, they give the "bad guys" an opportunity to get money to buy NEW guns, by turning over old, unreliable guns to get money from the cops to buy new ones that are reliable to use in their crimes. They steal cheap guns, then sell them to the cops (or whatever gullible people are running the buyback). The cops get nice pictures of piles of guns, most of them inoperable, for the local papers, and crime continues, unabated. The cops pat themselves on the back and congratulate themselves on "getting x number of guns off the street." Meanwhile, the crooks use the money THEY provided to get new guns. They have to know this, but it doesn't even slow them down in their quest to disarm the law-abiding. The "authorities admit it makes no difference, but it's an "easy thing to do" and the public demands it. Not a good reason to waste time, money, and effort. (The Buffalo News)

Gun Control Is Stupid!

It just plain does not work! It's amazing to me that an entire group of people can remain as STUPID as are the anti-gun fools! They have to know that not a single one of their laws work, and that they even INCREASE gun crime by disarming the law-abiding and making them "sitting ducks" for those who do not obey their laws. But they use every instance of a mass shooting (or any kind of a shooting, even a NON-shooting) to advance their silly goals. If somebody takes a KNIFE, or a BAT, or any other weapon and hurts people with it, they clamor for more of the same stupid laws they KNOW don't work. I'm beginning to believe their purpose is NOT to "stem gun violence," but to make the law-abiding helpless when THEY come to take what's theirs. They don't want any of their agents falling victim to an armed citizen when they come after their property. And they HAVE done so in the past. I remember fully the story of a rancher whose property a sheriff coveted for a new sheriff's station. He wouldn't sell, so they phonied up some "drug charges" and raided him in the early morning. He didn't know what was happening, and came out with a gun in his hand. so they killed him, and bought the ranch for a song from his grieving widow. It seems to me that's what they're after.

Are We Obsessed With Guns?

Are we obsessed with guns, or does the media just want people to think we are? The answer is, No. And yes. the media DOES want people to think we are obsessed with guns. The truth is, it is the anti-gun fools who are obsessed with guns--taking them away from all law-abiding citizens, that is. And we have to meet them with significant opposition to KEEP our constitutional right to be armed for self defense. Truth is, owning and using a gun IS a RIGHT, not a privilege, to be regulated tightly. But that's not what certain politicians think, wrong though they may be. And they continue to make unconstitutional laws and regulations that we must oppose, at every turn, or LOSE that right. No, it's NOT an obsession, on OUR part. It IS, on THEIR part. They think (or PRETEND to think) that taking guns away from the law-abiding will stop those who DON'T obey laws from getting their guns. That's been proven wrong, time and time again, but they never tumble to reality. (Liberty Park Press)

Wrong Again!

In Dallas County, a judge thinks if he ASKS a known wife/girlfriend abuser to turn in his guns, he'll do it. There's no way to be sure he does it, and he can ignore the judge and keep his guns. So if he wants to use them on his wife or girlfriend, he can. How many men who want to do violence OBEY the laws that say they can't do it with a gun? And how many guys who DO give up their guns use other means to hurt their women? As with other anti-gun fool laws, it DEPENDS on lawbreakers to OBEY their law. They call them lawbreakers for a REASON. They BREAK laws. so how does this judge (and his political friends) think this law will do a BIT of good? Of course, it won't. But will they notice? Probably not. they're not intelligent enough to SEE that it won't, so they will probably make excuses when it doesn't, and then make even more USELESS laws. That's their pattern. Take guns away from as many law-abiding people as possible, leaving the ILLEGALLY-armed people to victimize them. (Dallas News)

These People Are Insane!

They keep talking about HUNTING as a reason to allow the average, law-abiding person to own and use a gun. They don't know, or PRETEND not to know that hunting is only a "side issue' to self defense against all oppressors, criminal, crazy, Islamic terrorists, and even GOVERNMENT. Yes, against government. Thomas Jefferson, one of the Founders actually said so. that in the final analysis, a gun may be required to defend ourselves against an oppressive government. Jefferson was very forward-looking. He could actually SEE what we are facing, today; an out of control, oppressive government that is today, much worse than the British government against which we rebelled. Of course, the way they did it was "gradualism," something King George just didn't understand. His power was absolute, and he wielded it that way, which was against everything the colonists stood for. Revolution was inevitable. The fact remains that the chief reason for the Second Amendment is SELF DEFENSE. For INDIVIDUALS, not for government establishments such as "organized militias," which did not exist at the time the Constitution was written. (Dana Milbank)

Australia Without Guns

It's illegal in Australia cities to carry even a small pocket knife--unless you have a "good reason" to do so. But the "good reason" restriction there is an easy one to pass. One is that it is a "useful tool" in your life. Another is "food preparation." In America, they regularly abuse the "good reason" requirement. In Australia, they don't, much. In the "outback," knives are freely sold in many stores, and universally carried by most people. Just not in the cities, and not in schools or bars. Knives are carried in "the outback" because there is always a "good reason" to carry them, and the cops rarely stop people for a search. They have almost completely banned guns for the law-abiding (but the NON-law-abiding still carry them, as usual), so knives and other kinds of weapons are popular with the law-abiding. And as quickly as people come up with effective weapons, "the authorities" try to ban them or make them difficult, or impossible to carry, as they do in America. But it's a losing proposition, since even a heavy ashtray can be a deadly weapon, and who wants to ban heavy ashtrays? (Gun Watch)

"Affects Only Honest People"

The late columnist Charlie Reese once wrote about gun laws, and he was absolutely correct when he said that "gun laws only affect honest people. Gun control is not about crime. It's about a small elite who fear and despise the common people." He couldn't have been more right. Gun control is NOT about guns. It is about CONTROL. The politicians who tell you they want to ban your guns or make you buy a license to exercise a constitutional right are telling you they don't trust you, and that is not only insulting, it is WRONG. Elite politicians realize what many "average people" do not. As Thomas Jefferson said, “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” And since their purpose is to install a tyranny, it is incumbent upon them to eliminate our right to carry guns for self defense. which is why so many of them are "anti-gun" fools. (Just common sense)

Contradiction In Terms

A "liberal gun club." Now I've seen it all. A bunch of self-styled liberals with a gun club. Hoo, ha! A gun club goes against all things liberal. So to claim to be a "liberal gun club" is a definite contradiction in terms. I don't know what their platform is, but I suspect it, in the long run, is bad for gun ownership for self defense for the average citizen. They say they favor enforcement of current gun laws, rather than the giddy passage of new ones--to that, I agree wholeheartedly--except, of course, those laws that do NOTHING to "stem gun violence," and those are many. They say they're "not sure" about universal gun registration. They try again, to convince the world that 48% of voters are liberal and vote for Dumocrats. To that, I say, why then, can the Dumocrats not win elections? (Liberal Gun Club)

"Poverty and Hopelessness"

That's what's at the bottom of a lot of the "gun crime." The "authorities" recognize this, but keep on making laws to make honest people defenseless. The most of the "gun violence" everywhere is committed by street gangs, many of whom RULE their areas. Even the cops, in some areas, leave them alone unless they get way "out of control, as they are wont to do, sometimes. In some places, they even DEFER to them, as if they were a LEGITIMATE organization. In Sacramento, they even want to PAY them not to kill people. Is that insane, or what? But if "poverty and hopelessness" is the impetus, why don't they go after that, rather than take guns away from HONEST people, leaving them DEFENSELESS against those who obey NO laws? Their every effort works to INCREASE gun violence, but try and convince them of that. Their minds are made up, so don't confuse them with facts. Telling them facts that don't agree with their preconceived notions is like throwing a rock at a boulder. It just bounces off without effect. (Just common sense)

"Guns on the Street"

Surprise, surprise! Potential criminals tend to buy their guns (those that don't just steal then) "off the street," not from gun stores. And those who buy from gun stores are not generally the crooks; so why do they keep making it harder and harder on honest, law-abiding people to get guns to use in self defense? I don't thiink they do it to make things easier for criminals to victimize us, but that's the sum effect of ALL their highly-touted "gun laws." And you can't convince them of this. Are they just STUPID, or what? I think most of the anti-gun fools just have an unreasonable hatred of guns, period. They can't get at those who get their guns illegally, so they go after the guns they can find--those bought and owned by people who actually OBEY their laws, and think they're actually DOING something to reduce gun violence. Meanwhile, gun violence continues, unabated, and even INCREASES. Which frustrates them no end, and they work harder and harder to do away with every gun in the world, except those in the hands of cops and government agents (and crooks, crazies, and Islamic terrorists). Is there no "antidote?" There is. Just stop electing these incompetent fools who demonstrate an unreasoning HATRED of guns, But will we? Probably not. There are still too many anti-gun fools voting.

Realtors Face Reality

I hate to use that term to describe real estate brokers, because it is inaccurate. The term, "Realtor" is a word used to describe real estate brokers who are members of a specific organization, but has been taken to describe ALL real estate brokers. But the words "real estate brokers" takes up too much room in a headline. But the facts are there. Real estate brokers have been suffering "gun violence" at the hands, mostly, of unlicensed gun carriers, and they want to be able to fight back--something the "authorities" seem to be against. I guess they just want the real estate brokers to succumb to the victimization intended by those criminals. In 2015, the number of Realtors who carried was 12%. In 2016, it rose to 16%, and in 2017, to 19%. Significant numbers, but still not enough. The number ought to be 100%. Being a real estate broker can be a dangerous profession, and they, like ALL Americans, ought to be able to defend themselves. But brain-dead politicians just don't agree. (Gun Watch)

Anti-Gun Misinformation

The "Violence Policy Center" says, "Concealed carriers don't stop crimes, they commit them." Unfortunately, they have no proof that this is true. Yes, some of the mass shootings have been committed by people who had not yet committed a crime and are thus able to get gun rights. Which only proves that their highly-touted registration laws do NOTHING to stop, or even slow down people who wish to commit mass murder. If they can't get their guns legally, they just steal them, as some have done, or buy them illegally, which is easy. They try, and they try, but so far, they haven't come up with a real "cure" for gun violence. And they never will, as long as they aim at the guns instead of the PEOPLE, and depend on LAWBREAKERS to OBEY their laws when they obey no others. Yes, a very FEW permit-holders commit crimes. But the vast majority do NOT. That's something they don't tell you. (Truth About Guns)

Gun Laws Don't Work?

Amazing! None of the laws that are supposed to stop gun violence did a single thing to dissuade that student who was obsessed by mass shootings from shooting his classmates, IN a "gun-free zone," a school. I wonder why that is? Could it be that the people who made them are too STUPID to realize that not a single law against gun ownership will dissuade CRIMINALS, crazies, and Islamic terrorists from bringing their guns and shooting people? They HAVE to know their laws are aimed in the wrong direction when they're aimed at the gun. The gun is but a TOOL to be used for good OR evil. And to ban guns in the hands of the law-abiding is to make them DEFENSELESS against the fools who misuse guns. Something must be done about the PEOPLE, not the guns. Anybody with a modicum or INTELLIGENCE knows this. That's why I call all those who make anti-gun laws stupid. They know their laws do NOTHING, but they keep making them. Not to control guns, but to control PEOPLE. (Just common sense)

When Will They Learn?

We've been telling them and telling them for years, that their anti-gun laws and rules don't work, but they ignore us, ridicule us, and keep right on making them, every time they can. They even use instances of VEHICLE violence to advance their silly gun laws that do NOTHING to stop, or even slow down gun violence. What are they THINKING? Gun-Free Zones have become "killing zones" because shooters know most law-abiding folks will not be armed there, since they OBEY laws and regulations. Criminals do NOT. Gun Safes and other "safe storage laws only keep honest people from being able to get their guns in action fast enough to be effective if they're attacked by an ILLEGAL gun-wielding criminal. Limiting magazine capacity accomplishes nothing, either. Even if they can't get higher capacity magazines, it's easy to have more than one magazine. My favorite in the silly law department is the state that allows concealed carry, but the gun carried must be UNLOADED! What the hell good an unloaded gun does you, is anyone's guess. But they wanted a law, and they got it. (Just common sense)
