Skip to comments.Jason Alexander’s amazing gun rant ("ban assault weapons")
Posted on 07/23/2012 9:57:19 AM PDT by Atlas Sneezed
What purpose does an AR-15 serve to a sportsman that a more standard hunting rifle does not serve? Lets see does it fire more rounds without reload? Yes. Does it fire farther and more accurately? Yes. Does it accommodate a more lethal payload? Yes. So basically, the purpose of an assault style weapon is to kill more stuff, more fully, faster and from further away. To achieve maximum lethality....
These people believe that the US government is eventually going to go street by street and enslave our citizens. Now as long as that is only happening to liberals, homosexuals and democrats no problem. But if they try it with anyone else its going to be arms-ageddon and these committed, God-fearing, brave souls will then use their military-esque arsenal to show the forces of our corrupt government whats-what. These people think they meet the definition of a militia. They dont. At least not the constitutional one. And, if it should actually come to such an unthinkable reality, these people believe they would win. Thats why they have to take our country back. From who? From anyone who doesnt think like them or see the world like them. They hold the only truth, everyone else is dangerous. Ever meet a terrorist that doesnt believe that? Just asking.
Then there are the folks who write that if everyone in Colorado had a weapon, this maniac would have been stopped. Perhaps. But I do believe that the element of surprise, tear gas and head to toe kevlar protection might have given him a distinct edge. Not only that, but a crowd of people firing away in a chaotic arena without training or planning I tend to think that scenario could produce even more victims....

As usual a hollywood whatever talking out his ass.
Mr Alexander please read the United States Constitution. You know the law of the land. Nowhere in the 2nd Amendment does it address hunting or sport shooting. Remember these people had just fought a war with their Government.The 2nd Amendment was put in place to insure the citizens would always have the means to protect the 1st Amendment.
If you are ignorant on the subject then it is probably better to keep you mouth shut..........
Well, that’s just bullshit.
The M-16, and every other rifle in military service, was designed to KILL. Period.
The 5.56mm round is a smaller, faster round than the .308/7.62mm “main battle rifle” cartridge it replaced, but there was NEVER any intention to just “wound” the enemy.
It may not do the job as well as other rounds, but that’s a defect, not a feature.
As one of my director friends says: “There is no such thing as good acting. Just good casting.”
Laz, if I can call you that, you are so correct! I would like to join in as you and others have said New York, Chicago, Detroit and Los Angles are shining examples of “No Gun Zones”.
One example on your thought/Post, below.
Happyland/ Bronx, NY; 87 dead
Julio González (born October 10, 1954 is a Cuban-born warehouse worker and arsonist responsible for the Happy Land Fire that killed 87 people in the Bronx, New York City, on March 25, 1990. It is one of the largest mass murders in United States history.
How am I gonna launch golf balls without my M4?
I wonder what Jason thinks we should do about the OVER 1 MILLION babies killed by ABORTION each year in the U.S.
I have an AR-15 and I have not hunted with it except to kill coyotes out on my farm that have been killing calves and chickens. What I enjoy about the rifle is going to the rifle range and hitting my target at 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 yards. Now I grant that I had this rifle built to very small tolerances, specifically for the accuracy. It is the joy of shooting that I bought that particular rifle. I have spoken to my gunsmith about building a 338 mag for long range shooting and hunting. I have seen his rifle hit a 2 inch target at 1200 yards. When he told me his rifle would do that consistently, I did not believe. I saw the rifle being used and it was true. These are amazing firearms, and very fun to shoot. This is one pursuit of happiness.
Amen. There is no talking sense, or facts, to fools of this caliber.
BTW, these types of idiots are always the first victims of repressive, leftist regimes. This guy is just another useful idiot.
Jason Alexander is a good, perhaps even great, actor. I love his comedy. However, I’d advise him to stick with what he knows, because as the old Chinese proverb states, “Better to keep your mouth closed and have others believe you to be a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.” You see, the 2nd Amendment has nothing whatsoever to do with hunting or sport, and everything to do with preserving our republic against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The people of this country ARE the militia of the 2nd Amendment, and it is the presence of some 250 million firearms that prevents any government - including our own - from attempting to impose a tyranny.
Jason, I am quite sure that there is a law against murder in Colorado. Likewise, there are laws against threatening people with a weapon (let alone 4), there are laws against making bombs (including ones with non-lethal agents like tear gas) and I rather doubt that the shooter in this case had a legal right to even carry a firearm outside of his own home (except to/from a shooting range or gun store). Despite that, none of those laws stopped any crimes from being committed by this lunatic, nor saved anyone. Just as logical, no gun control law would have saved these people, either - because this guy was clearly capable of making bombs. Gun control only affects the otherwise law-abiding (which is to say, COMPLETELY INNOCENT PEOPLE), while it has exactly ZERO effect on those intent on committing crimes of one type or another. Why do you call on the rights of the innocent and decent people of this country to be destroyed because of the actions of a lunatic?
Maybe before writing this stupid screed, Jason, you should have considered that any serious attempt to control the roughly 250 million firearms would involve a MASSIVE denial of the most basic human right (that of self-protection), to say nothing of the destruction of at least the 4th and 5th Amendments. For gun control to work, youd have to take away ALL of the firearms from 85-90 million people (good luck with that one, BTW), and make damned sure that no other guns were imported illegally (most likely by the drug gangs, which are rumored to have hundreds of pipelines into this country from multiple foreign sources), and that no one with the expertise decided to manufacture guns in their basement or garage (and there are literally hundreds of thousands with that capacity). Simply put, you are asking for no more and no less than the imposition of a massive totalitarian state...something that the 2nd Amendment is specifically designed to prevent. What you will get if you are allowed to make a serious attempt at gun control is a 2nd Civil War, one that would make the carnage of the first one look like 2 little kids having a fight in a sandbox.
Oh, and Jason, I’m on to your game: you want OTHERS to go around collecting the guns, because you lack the guts to try it yourself. Better to have some poor schmuck who HAS to work for $40K/year, who has no choice but to follow orders, go around busting down people’s doors and shooting them and their families to “get the guns” - better that than for you to put YOUR precious ass on the line, right? You COWARD!
Finally, Jason, as a fellow Jew from New Jersey, I ask that you consider the FACT that the genocide perpetrated against our people by the Nazis and their accomplices would have been utterly impossible without our brethren having first been disarmed. For more information regarding the key role of gun control in genocide, read this review of a book entitled “Lethal Laws: Gun Control is the Key to
Genocide” http://www.davekopel.com/2a/LawRev/lethal.htm Better yet, just get the book and read it, maybe you’ll learn something: http://www.amazon.com/Lethal-Laws-Gun-Control-Genocide/dp/0964230402/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1343059725&sr=1-1&keywords=lethal+laws
Now for some ancient Greek for you, Jason: Molon Labe, you moron!
Too late! Now we all know that Jason is more like George Costanza than anyone would want to admit. lol
That is all you need to justify owning it.
There is no "sporting purpose" or requirement to demonstrate "need" as the gun grabbers imply.
I took my 30.06 in the pool and when I came out it was an AR-15! /s
Is it not astonishing how we never, ever hear a liberal regaling the Constitution. It is their impediment to life. They (especially obama) want to impose their own vapid code on all of us while they are a law unto themselves. Oprah wants gun control while she has body guards who carry. Obama wants gun control for all except those who protect him. Their duplicity and hypocrisy is beyond believable.
He was arrested right after the shooting, so his name was known. It's just ABC's Brian Ross and George Stepalloverus that got the info wrong, perhaps on purpose, trying their damnedest to tie the murderer to the Tea Party. Once he had been identified properly, they simply checked the local colleges and universities, seeing that he was of college age and the rest was fairly easy and straight forward fact checking, which apparently Brian Ross is incapable of.......................yes, I know I ended that sentence with a preposition................
Actually, 8700 FIREARMS related murders in 2011. Dufus wasn’t even close to being close. He was off by 91,000 people.
That's the western mindset, that the individual human life has value. I'll bet a lot of our enemies would only consider treating those able to be returned to combat, and allow the others their martyrdom.
With all due respect, it appears from all the protective gear he wore that he expected resistance.
Yes. And even more tellingly, the shooting started in Lexington and Concord when their own government sent government troops to confiscate the arms of the militia.
Those who refuse to to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Anti-gun liberals are in a shaky position. Within days of the outbreak of a civil war caused by gun confiscations, every liberal in the country will be wanting to buy arms to protect themselves. Didn't Charleton Heston have liberal friends hoping to borrow arms during the L.A. riots?
Hey Costanza! Can’t stand ya!
