    You have to wonder how the dear Liar is going to figure out a way to reverse this trend – after all, if people can defend themselves, it means they can stop Demo-thugs from taking their property.

    I’ll ignore for a moment the utterly false notion that self-defense was never mentioned by any of the founders (Adams mentioned it, several founders carried pistols for self-defense, and it’s mentioned in many state analogues to the 2nd Amendment)

    Here’s one of the best ways to argue a Leftist into the firmament on the gun control:

    1) First ask them if they believer they have the right to defend themselves – as in my tag line.

    Most likely they will hem and haw and try to deflect away from the question – as per usual when leftists are confronted with unimpeachable logic.

    But keep on pressing the same question on whether they have that right.

    After awhile they will have to agree with the proposition – the alternative is that some can do what ever harm they want to them and they can’t retaliate, hence the aforementioned hemming and hawing to avoid the question.

    2) Once you have established that they believe they have a right to self-defense you then transition to the proposition as to the means of that self-defense – which has to be a firearm because that’s what the lawless may have.

    Again you should expect the same kind of hemming and hawing on that point, but if question #1 is true then it logically follows that question #2 has to be true.

    Bottom line: Taking away someone’s means of self-defense deprives them of the basic human right of self-defense.

    Gun sales are up in the wake of Barack Obama’s re-election on Tuesday, driven by fears of tighter regulations under a Democratic president, especially for firearms that might be classified as assault weapons.

    But gun ownership is down…………. Right ……. If you believe that – anyone want to buy a bridge?

    I imagine that a lot of people are going to sell their guns if they’re likely to be banned – they won’t want to lose money on the deal.

    Word has it a friend of a friend sold all of his guns the other day for this reason – it was some guy name Art Vandalay or something for cash with an ad he stuck up on a bulletin board.

    Why would they need to be smuggling ammo into Mexico?

    Don’t they have strict gun control down south O’ the border?

    According to the logical geniuses of the Left, there should not be ANY gun violence down there.

    Therefore, there shouldn’t be any reason for anyone – besides the BATFE, that is – to smuggling ammo, right?

    Posted this on a thread discussing this new found interest in the Feds controlling all gun sales:

    Think about the fact that we have two world events that exemplify why someone would need firearms.

    Libya shows us that sometimes guns are necessary to resist tyranny and the disaster in Japan shows us that there are sometimes when you need to fend for your family.

    The gun grabbers would like to think that those justifications do not exist in the real world, maybe because they do not seem to exist in the real world.

    Someone around here once suggested that one of the usual suppliers start making “Open carry trainers” – basically a belt mounted case that sort of looks like a holster that can hold a cell phone or keys or something.

    Open carry advocates could start wearing this type ‘Holster’ and when the hoplophobes go nuts and call in the police, it can be shown to be just a carrying case and not a threat.

    After a while people can become desensitized to the sight of such a thing and we can switch them out for real holsters.

    Does anyone find it curious that the forcible citizen disarmament lobby is suddenly clamoring for the outlawing of the private sales of guns?

    It has been a few weeks since the shooting in Tucson, so why are they drumming up this issue now?

    Think about the fact that we have two world events that exemplify why someone would need firearms.

    Libya shows us that sometimes guns are necessary to resist tyranny and the disaster in Japan shows us that there are sometimes when you need to fend for your family.

    Are the gun grabbers tone deaf that these world events show people why they need to be armed? This could be it, because they do not seem to have a clue as to why a free-people would like to be able to defend themselves.

    But the timing is very suspect here.

    Why do they need this issue to be in the forefront right now?

  • Is onslaught of 'gun show loophole' legislation--and worse--about to begin?

    This has been posted around a few places, but it’s a good run down on what we’re facing, It’s a response to E.J. Dionne’s use of the term ‘baby steps’ in creeping towards more gun control:

    “What Obama endorsed were, well, baby steps toward strengthening background checks”

    You know it’s kind of dumb for Mr. Dionne to use a term like baby steps – the clear implication is that this is just the beginning of a plan that certainly will have confiscation as it’s end goal in mind.

    The disarm the law-abiding crowd’s way over used term commonsense at least implies that at least this initiative won’t be part of a ongoing scheme or scam.

    As someone else posted on another site pointed out, this commonsense baby step means that the sale of your private property will now fall under the influence of the Feral Government.

    A measure to control ALL gun transaction by the government along with the ‘registering’ of this information in a database means that Gov. will now have a proto-registration system.

    In effect, you will now need the government’s ‘Permission’ to obtain a means of self-defense, from anyone and anywhere. Instead of being able to simply sell your own personal property, you will now have to turn it over to an FFL so that they can charge you a nominal fee and have the government grants it’s blessing over the sale.

    So much for property rights.

    A parent won’t be able to hand down some of their property to their children – it’ll have to run its course through the federal bureaucracy.

    Does anyone really believe that once the Feds have a hand in any lawful firearm transaction and a database of such a transfer, that the won’t start to us such device to pare down the numbers of people who can defend themselves?

    Does anyone believe that they won’t start abusing this device to control your 2nd amendment rights?

    Does anyone believe that they won’t start intimidating gun owners with threats of publishing this registration data as they are in Illinois?

    Does anyone believe that they won’t start requiring periodic taxation of your guns?

    Does anyone believe that they won’t start requiring periodic registration of ALL of your guns?

    Does anyone believe that they won’t eventually use this registration database to confiscate guns?

  • Some ‘illegal’ U.S. guns being used to defend Mexican lives

    chainsaw56 to marktwain
    But in Mexico, it is close to impossible to obtain a permit to carry a gun. People need a license just to own any firearm. The process is burdensome. The punishment for illegal possession is severe, including prison terms of up to seven years.

    Therefore, Mexico should be a shining example for the Gun grabbers on the absolute success of gun control, right?

    After all, every incremental attempt at taking away our right of self-defense is couched in terms of commonsense that no “reasonable” person could resist.

    Who hasn’t seen the public service ads from the Gun grabbers touting the extraordinary results of gun control in old Mexico?

    *Whispering* Unless, perhaps there is a conspiracy to hide this fantastic gun control utopia from the public.

    (Don’t tell anyone we may have stumbled across this secret conspiracy to hide the success of gun control south of the border)

    Perhaps the Disarm the law-abiding crowd can make their life’s obsession a two pronged effort.

    Continue with their ongoing efforts to take away the people’s right to self-defense.

    After all, It all for the Children Criminals.

    But they could also start up a prison outreach program to talk to the Convicted felons Innocent victims of the criminal justice system, and reassure them that they are doing all they can to make their jobs a lot safer.

    After all, can our republic survive with the criminals living in fear that their innocent victims may be able to defend themselves?

    The gun grabbers can help out their intellectual brethren with pep talks on their unceasing efforts to first get the state involved in every gun purchase transaction as a first step in registering guns and then eventually confiscating them.

    That last action should warm the cockles of even the most hardened felon, knowing that some day in a glorious future, they will be able to go out and rape and rob without having the hazard of the law-abiding trying to stop them.

    It should also warm the cockles of every Marxist, knowing that people won’t be able to resist their spreading the wealth around and the rest of their oppression.

    [The American people — a lot of them — responded by buying guns. Gun sales surged in the wake of the shooting. Apparently people see themselves standing in a shopping mall, taking dead aim on a gunman who’s spraying the place with bullets, and bringing him down with a single shot. Lots of luck with that. Life seldom imitates Clint Eastwood movies. Even when it does, you rarely get to be Clint. ]

    So it would better to be disarmed? Yeah, good plan!

    They weren't. They were 18th-century creatures of the Enlightenment who were conscious of their limitations in laying down rules for the formation of a nation.

    Being learned men, the founder’s knew that there would be advances in gun technology as they has seen up to their time.

    They knew it was better to have unfortunate tragedy like Tucson than to live under tyranny.

    Here’s how to translate the BS:

    High-capacity clips = Anything that can hold over 10 rounds [soon to 5 rounds.. soon to be 2 rounds..]

    And when they talk about wanting to expand who gets denied – just remember that as the title stated – they can implement a ban gradually by simply being more “Inclusive” in who should Denied their basic human rights.

    Today it’s Leftist nutcases like Loughner, tomorrow it will be people with the “wrong” political views.

    Once they established the precedent of 5 days, they will up it to 10, then 20, 30….

    They will also expand it to include others types of firearms until it encompasses everything.

    Then once they got a read on what people own, they can start questioning Why you need a certain number.

    Sort of like Obammer saying that at some point you’ve made enough money.

    Watch them come out and say: At some point you have too many guns.
