You Canít Win An Argument With A Moron With or Without a Bump Stock
MOTUS A.D. ^ | 10-7-17 | MOTUS

“It is usually futile to try to talk facts and analysis to people who are enjoying a sense of moral superiority in their ignorance.”  — Thomas Sowell (@ThomasSowell) October 5, 2017

I’m pressed for time because we’re cleaning and packing today for our trip back to Michigan, so I asked Little Mo - zoom-1Little Mo, manning the bar at the MOTUS Twilight Nocturne Lounge

to work on a post for today. He said he would but he wanted me to {{{POOF}}} the NRA link in my sidebar because of their announced support of the “Bump Fire Stock” ban. Little Mo is pretty hardcore Second Amendment rights, and took offense at their weaseling on this. Still, they’re still the most vocal proponent of gun rights, as well as the leading proponent of gun safety so I’m not willing to deep six them. So we worked out a deal; Little Mo said he’d do the post as long as he can use it as an opportunity to demonstrate the stupidity of banning the bump fire stock. He thinks it’s just another case of everyone signing on to Nuke the Whales because, as Nelson explained to Lisa, you’ve “gotta nuke something.”  

gotta nuke somethingLiberal Logic

Accordingly, Little Mo is presenting two videos for your review: #1 demonstrates how you can “bump stock” your own semi-automatic rifle with nothing more than your body parts, shoulder and finger to be precise, no external paraphernalia required:

Video #2 demonstrates that the shooter using the shoulder/finger bump firing method is - although a tad slower than the shooter whose rifle is outfitted with the official bump fire stock – is actually more accurate.

Moral of the story: Nuke the whales if you must but be advised: you just end up with radioactive whales.

best

Which Little Mo points out is reason enough to never get into a barroom brawl with a liberal. So thanks, Little Mo, that was very enlightening. And now  I’ll be getting back to my cleaning and packing; carry on troops.

This is all about banning all semi-autos, and ultimately all firearms.

Oh noes!

no one taught me to bumpfire a semi auto

Remember the ahole in Nice France took out 86 people and injured close to 500 with truck

Best band trucks and cars, heck we should ban MURDER

BINGO!

From 1976.

Nelson T. ‘Pete’ Shields
Founder of Handgun Control, Inc.

“I’m convinced that we have to have federal legislation to build on. We’re going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily — given the political realities — going to be very modest.

Of course, it’s true that politicians will then go home and say, ‘This is a great law. The problem is solved.’ And it’s also true that such statements will tend to defuse the gun-control issue for a time.

So then we’ll have to strengthen that law, and then again to strengthen that law, and maybe again and again. Right now, though, we’d be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal — total control of handguns in the United States — is going to take time.

My estimate is from seven to ten years. The problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns sold in this country. The second problem is to get them all registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition — except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors — TOTALLY ILLEGAL.”

-Pete Shields, Chairman and founder, Handgun Control Inc., “A Reporter At Large: Handguns,” The New Yorker, July 26, 1976, 57-58

“Yes, I’m for an outright ban [on handguns].”

-Pete Shields, Chairman emeritus, Handgun Control, Inc., 60 Minutes interview

HCI, around 1984, came out in favor of a ban on semi-auto rifles and shotguns.

*******
And HERE IS how they will do it, one small step at a time.

And to think, in 1962 Thomas J Dodd and Emauell Cellar proposed the first federal law on common firearms.

1962; “We don’t want to take away your guns, we ONLY want to register handguns! Rifles and shotguns will not be affected”.

1964: “We only want to register all your guns, not ban them! Only Army surplus guns will be banned.”

1968: “We only want to register your guns, and ban “Saturday Night Specials” and small foreign handguns along with army surplus rifles!” (They got the ban on 5 shot army surplus rifles and handguns and small foreign pistols)

1970: “We only want to ban Saturday night specials! Large handguns and rifles will not be affected!”

1976: “We only want to ban all handguns! Long guns will not be affected!”

1981: “The NRA is a rifle organization! They should give up their handguns, and they can keep their rifles!”- Lee Grant on GMA

1984: “We must ban “assault Rifles, unsuitable or hunting!”

1989: George Bush bans import of some foreign made “assault rifles”.

1992: Assault rifle ban passed by Clinton.

2000: first calls to ban single shot .50 cal rifles...

2012 calls for MORE bans on semi auto rifles and handguns. If you can’t ban them then go after ammo limits, the magazines and styles of the stocks.

And so it continues.

False headline. I can win a lot of arguments very quickly with a bump stock.

If guns are to be kept out of the hands of the criminal, out of the hands of the insane, and out of the hands of the irresponsible, then we just must have licensing. If the criminal with a gun is to be tracked down quickly, then we must have registration in this country.

We had a so-called assault weapon ban for 10 years and it did practically nothing. People want to believe that the bumpfire stock somehow made this latest shooter more deadly, but I’m still not convinced. Marginally so, perhaps for someone with a little bit of shooting experience. I wish someone would do an experiment with a few average type shooters; let them shoot guns with and without bumpstocks to see what they can hit. This latest mass murder was bad, but mainly because of the venue and the fact that the guy seems to have had more of an ability to plan such and attack and not quite so crazy as to have the patience to carry it out.

The guy could have easily done as much damage with a Schmidt Rueben bolt action rifle in 72 minutes.

The assault weapon ban, banned pistol grips and bayonet mounts.

It was idiotic

***If the criminal with a gun is to be tracked down quickly, then we must have registration in this country.***

Felons not required to REGISTER their guns!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haynes_v._United_States

The National Firearms Act of 1934 required the registration of certain types of firearms. Miles Edward Haynes was a convicted felon who was charged with failing to register a firearm under the Act. Haynes argued that, because he was a convicted felon and thus prohibited from owning a firearm, requiring him to register was essentially requiring him to make an open admission to the government that he was in violation of the law, which was thus a violation of his right not to incriminate himself.

] The original Haynes decision continues to block state prosecutions of criminals who fail to register guns as required by various state law gun registration schemes.
