We don’t want to take your guns…except we sorta do

US Constitution, pg1 post treatment

So, it seems that the politicians in Connecticut are a little perplexed that people aren’t registering their firearms like good little lemmings are supposed to.  Given how prior gun registration requirements have morphed into gun confiscation lists I don’t blame the residents of CT one bit.  In fact, I may even question the sanity of the 50,000 people who did register.

In reality, gun registration is simply another step along the way to a gun ban which won’t keep anyone safer.  We’ve seen it Great Britain, Australia and now New York and CaliforniaCrime rates aren’t actually tied in with gun ownership rates, but the gun control lobby just doesn’t seem to grasp reality.  Making people register their firearms isn’t going to do a damn thing to reduce crime.

It will be interesting to see what CT ends up doing.  When you pass a law that people don’t follow, do you decide to repeal it or enforce it anyway and turn most of your citizens into felons?  How much civil disobedience needs to take place before subject matter penetrates the politicians thick skulls?

In a related note, South Carolina governor Haley offered her support to the idea of Constitutional Carry, or the right to bear a firearm without need to get permission from the state.  The left wing media and gun control lobby immediately lost its collective shit.  The comments on the Rachel Maddow Facebook page are priceless in just how clueless the ignorant sit-at-home-and-bitch-because-I’m-too-scared-to-deal-with-life crowd is.

If you can stomach it, check out Paul Diamond’s little plan.  Here’s an excerpt. Continue reading “We don’t want to take your guns…except we sorta do”

“Reasonable” gun control

If the objects above cause you consternation, pain or hyperventilating, you might want to speak to your doctor about some anxiety medication.   ‘Gun Control’ should mean putting lead on target, not relieving me of my lawful property.

So, this guy James Schlarmann decided he’d like to tackle the gun control debate.  His blog, Political Garbage Chute, is aptly titled, as it comes off as a bunch of garbage.  He says it’s a left leaning satirical site, but I’m apparently too dense to note the satire.  Actually, what I see is condescension in stuff like “We’re sorry that your paranoia has made you afraid of the government and law enforcement.  But the adults are trying to have a conversation.”

One of his points is that “We’re a violent species, warring on each other since the very first time a caveman told another caveman to get out of his cave and go find a cave of his own, and no one is denying that humans will find a way to kill humans regardless of the tool they choose to use, but nothing changes the fact that it is in our best interest to tightly control tools of wanton murder.”  Apparently he’s of the strict Darwinian model of ‘survival of the fittest’, where the biggest-baddest-mutha rules the day.  Personally, I would prefer not to have take on some 200 lb MMA practitioner with just a frying pan I was able to grab in the kitchen let alone my bare hands.  And, I certainly don’t want my wife or daughter having to do it.  So, the obvious choice, should I feel the need, to defend myself, my family or my property is to utilize a tool that allows a more equal playing field.
