If Gun Control Doesn’t Work, We Need MORE Gun Control

In Rants by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

This is the overriding message we are hearing from the gun control camp since Saturday.  It doesn’t really make any sense, does it?  It’s like the old saying, We lose money on each item, but we make it up in volume!  

Of course, to cover up their illogic, the gun control advocates like to obfuscate and prey on the ignorance of the masses. That way, many of the people blaming the NRA won’t actually know what laws were in place where and when. They won’t know that this person underwent a background check, or that all of this happened in a gun control utopia state. The grabbers also expect their supporters to be lacking middle-school civics knowledge about Federalism and how State and Federal law interacts.

Gun Control Advocates Have Their Captain Queeg Moment

In Rants by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

How many of you are familiar with the movie and book, The Caine Mutiny?  The film has a famous scene where Humphrey Bogart, playing Captain Queeg, breaks down on the witness stand. His true character is dramatically revealed as his full insanity lets loose where everyone in the court can see it. Video of Scene. This weekend, the Gun Control Advocates had their Captain Queeg moment. 

After a horrific series of murders, half of which occurred by knife, not gun, and all of which occurred in the Gun Control Utopia of California, where they already have enacted everything on the “common sense” gun control checklist, the gun control advocates STILL tried to exploit the killings. It brought them to a new level of frothing incoherency. I have a lot of problems with the gun control advocates. As a general rule, I find them varying degrees of incorrect, inconsistent, illogical, and hypocritical.  And yet, even with those low expectations, they managed to shock, surprise, and disgust me this weekend.

Don’t Think They’ll Stop with “Common Sense” Restrictions

In Rants by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

Just when I think I’m used to gun control advocates using every trick in their book to limit our freedoms, they still manage to shock and disgust me.

In the wake of Saturday’s horrible killing, you would think they’d learn that their “common sense” restrictions don’t work. Or at least, that they can’t make a case to exploit out of this murder. I mean, California has the wish-list of gun reforms requested by Obama to address gun violence. This killer passed the background check. We are told that is apanacea if we made it “universal.” It has a 10 round magazine ban. It has an “assault weapons” ban. It all but prohibits CCW licenses (especially in the community where this took place), and it was in a giant gun-free zone. According to the first line of attack for Obama, Feinstein, and Moms Demand Action, they had everything one could hope for in “common sense” gun laws. You know, the ones they tell us they can enact while respecting our Second Amendment rights.
