Anti-gun laws good for criminals

March 21, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for March 21, 2018)

How much do you respect self-destructive people?

Do you honor those who engage in self-harm such as “cutting”? Do you celebrate those who burn up their mind and body by abusing drugs and alcohol? Do you respect those who commit suicide as soon as life doesn’t go their way?

Then why praise teenagers (or anyone else) who protest for more anti-gun “laws”? Just because they are “doing something” with conviction? If that’s all it takes, young ISIS recruits deserve your respect, too…read the rest

Three topics big deal to libertarians

March 14, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for March 14, 2018)

There are three topics which come up frequently in libertarian writings: guns, drugs, and national borders. The reason is those three areas are where the people of America seem willing to let government do the most damage to Rightful Liberty, just to punish other people.

All three are hot buttons for almost everyone, with people on each side screaming at those on the other…read the rest

Gun rights or copsucking? Your choice.

March 9, 2018

If you consider yourself a gun rights enthusiast, but you support cops and the military, you aren’t Ready to Rumble, you are Ready to Crumble. Ready to willingly cave in to whatever “law” your heroes decide to enforce against you.

Don’t fool yourself– if they have to choose between the paycheck/pension/social status, and respecting your rights, you will be tossed aside like anonymous skid-marked underwear hanging on their doorknob.

You are throwing your support behind your enemies– the very people who will be treading on you while prying the guns out of your cold, dead hands. Assuming you didn’t hand over all your guns immediately when your heroes demanded you do so.

There are few creatures as pathetic as a cop-supporting gun-rights enthusiast. What other molesters do they throw their support behind?

Any tyranny is too much tyranny

March 7, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for March 7, 2018)

How much is enough?

When it turns out stronger anti-drug “laws” don’t prevent addiction or tragedies, how much are you willing to expand prohibition? How far are you willing to have armed government employees go– on your behalf– to impose your opinions?

Would you approve of permanent checkpoints on all roads? Do you favor banning the manufacture of any and all chemicals which could possibly be combined to make substances you are willing to kill people over? the rest

Tide Pods and "gun control"

March 5, 2018

Does eating Tide Pods kill off the regions of the brain responsible for rational thought, so that those who have taken that “challenge” lose the ability to avoid supporting anti-gun “laws”

Or, are really stupid and gullible people just more likely to fall for both self-destructive things?

Does it matter what causes the stupidity? (See how I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt by not automatically assuming they are all simply evil?)

From now on when I see some teen or young “adult” out whining for the State to rape the populace of America in the name of “gun control”, I’ll picture the little darling uttering his words of stupidity while chewing on a Tide Pod, foam dripping from his flapping lips.

The right to keep and bear nukes

March 4, 2018

Just because I am against any sort of violation of the right to own and to carry weapons, it doesn’t mean I think everyone should have nukes. I’m opposed to anyone owning nuclear weapons– especially governments. (But I’m also opposed to government employees possessing any sort of weapon while on the “job”. They have proven they can never be trusted.)

I can’t figure out how anyone could ever use nukes (on Earth, anyway) strictly defensively without damaging the life, liberty, or property of innocents (“collateral damage”). If you can’t do something without archating, then it can’t be a right.

Yes, I realize possessing nuclear weapons isn’t the same as using them. Is not possessing nukes a credible threat to use them, which necessarily means archating? If not, then I’m wrong.

Being against the possession of nuclear weapons doesn’t mean I want governments banning them from private hands. That’s worse than letting the fox guard the henhouse. Much worse. Government doesn’t have the right, nor does it have the imaginary quality called “authority“, to forbid others from owning anything, including nuclear weapons.

Common sense gun deregulation needed

February 28, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for February 28, 2018)

It’s time to take a hard look at America’s gun laws. In fact, it’s over a century past due. How many more innocent lives will be snuffed out before people demand change? Before they demand politicians stand up and do what’s right?

I’m talking about common-sense gun deregulation…read the rest

Cornered by bigots

February 27, 2018

When someone threatens me, personally, I get angry. If they are within striking distance I may violently defend myself from them.

And, make no mistake, those demanding more anti-gun “laws” are threatening me personally. They are threatening to violently attack, rob, and enslave me… and murder me if I resist. That’s what “laws” are: a threat.

But no one has had the guts to do it to my face, even when directed at me. As is the nature of these anti-liberty cowards, they do it while hiding behind screens, hundreds of miles away. They still make me angry and trigger my “fight or flight” response.

The danger to them is there is nowhere left to fly to. The anti-liberty bigots have closed off the entire freakin’ planet. “Pro-gun” places like Texas impose anti-gun “laws” no civilized place would ever tolerate– and the anti-liberty bigots whine that it’s not enough. It’s never enough. That leaves fighting as the available option.

I understand the sentiment of “Kill ’em all” even though I disagree with it in practice.

I’ll continue to use my words to try to show them the error of their ways and to make it clear I gave them every chance to do the right thing and get their filthy government off my rights. But I know what it’s going to come to. Sooner or later. It’s only a matter of time.

Prescription for curing mass murders

February 26, 2018

I’ve said it in the past, and I’ll say it again:
If you want to decrease actual crime, particularly mass murders, you’ve got to raise the cost. You need to raise the cost high enough that almost no one decides it’s worth the trouble, since they’ll not get what they want out of it anyway.

You can’t do that with “laws“; bad guys never believe they are going to get caught. The most effective way to raise the cost of being a bad guy, in a way the bad guys will actually understand, is to make it more likely they’ll die during their attack– before they accomplish their goal of killing others.

You do that by doing everything you can to encourage everyone– and I mean EVERYONE– to be armed and prepared to stop an attacker in his tracks wherever one strikes. Yes, that means you will have to ignore counterfeit “laws”. Or you can try to force the anti-liberty bigots to abolish their anti-gun “laws”, but good luck with that.

School, not guns, is the problem

February 23, 2018

Allowing government schools to continue to exist is a safety nightmare.

First of all, you are putting your kids in the hands of cowards and ethical cripples. They ban the decent people from being armed, which encourages evil losers to treat the school as a shooting gallery. If you work for or in a school, and you don’t fight against the “no guns/weapons” policies you are part of the problem. If you help those policies be enforced you are so much worse.

Schooling is not synonymous with education, and it’s long past time to banish that religious delusion. Calling for government schools– kinderprisons— to be abolished completely isn’t speaking out against education; it is placing education over indoctrination.

But, if someone wants their kids to be indoctrinated into the statist religion in a state-administered shooting gallery, that’s their business– as long as they don’t force others to pay for it, and they don’t try to impose compulsory attendance “laws”. Truancy is not ever wrong and can’t be a real crime.

“School shootings” are only a symptom of a destructive government program which has been destroying individuals and families for much too long. It’s past time to make them go away, or at least limit the damage they do to those who are too ignorant to care. Death to kinderprison!
