The lies of anti-gun bigots

March 22, 2018

Lies are all they have.

Recently I saw an old “article” by some bigot who said there were some truths that gun rights supporters would never talk about. Then he started lying.

He correctly pointed out that the Second Amendment doesn’t give people the right to keep and bear guns. But instead of recognizing that all it did was make it illegal for government to make up laws concerning guns, he went off on a tangent about “the militia”, pretending it was something like the national guard. No, it isn’t. That’s not even speculative– the militia is, was, and always will be ALL the people who can carry a gun in defense of their territory. It isn’t an exclusive club, and it most certainly isn’t associated with government permission. The people who came up with the Second Amendment made that much very, very clear, and the anti-gun bigot is lying when he says anything else.

Here’s what someone who wasn’t a lying, government-extremist anti-liberty bigot had to say about it:

  • “I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials.”
    — George Mason, in Debates in Virginia Convention on Ratification of the Constitution, Elliot, Vol. 3, June 16, 1788

He also shows his ignorance by not knowing what “well regulated” meant when the amendment was written. It doesn’t mean what he wishes (tightly controlled by “law”), it means well-practiced. Sorry, Bigot. You don’t get an effective militia by tying it to government. Sure, he tries to quote the historical anti-liberty bigot Alexander Hamilton to prop up his argument, but this is like quoting John Wayne Gacy on what it means to be a clown. You don’t go to the enemy of truth to find enlightenment about the truth.

So, yeah, he is properly and completely refuted by the facts.

And, yet again, he ignores the fact– the irrefutable historical fact– that the right to own and to carry weapons predates the first government and will still exist unchanged long after the last government is forgotten in the mists of time. He still wants to believe it somehow creates a right to belong to a government-controlled “militia”. He’s an idiot and a liar.

He would probably get offended that I recognize his bigotry for what it is. Someone else recently did; scoffing that I called a spade a spade. Or a bigot a bigot, as the case may be. It is what it is, though. And anti-gun bigots, as a subset of anti-liberty bigots, are nothing but bigots, no matter how pure and enlightened they see themselves as being. They are just filthy bigots. Filthy bigots who lie.

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?..read 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.

Anti-gun “laws” can’t make anyone safer– except those who prefer victims who can’t fight back effectively. Every gun regulation is a violation of the rights to life, liberty, and property. America has compromised its way into this problem.

No one has the right to regulate guns (or other weaponry), nor can anyone invent this right through power or popularity. Attempting to do so anyway is ethically as bad as shooting up crowds.

Put government back in its tiny box through common-sense gun deregulation.

It’s time to end background checks and to get over the idea that some people can be prohibited from owning guns.
It’s time to abolish every “gun free” zone.
It’s time to get rid of “laws” controlling who may carry what weapon, where, and in what way, including licensing schemes. Slaves depend on others for defense; free men and women don’t.

It’s time to stop pretending anyone has the right to decide what type of gun, which gun accessories, or how many rounds of ammunition someone else needs. It’s no one’s business unless someone is making a credible threat to harm innocent people.
It’s time to stop pretending my rights are up for grabs whenever someone other than me commits an act of evil.

It’s time to stop acting like liberty is subject to the opinions of emotionally immature and intellectually deficient protesters.
It’s time to stop pretending you want to outlaw guns when you are willing to let the police and military keep theirs. You aren’t against guns, you just want government to have them all. How would you enforce any gun ban, if not with guns?

It’s time to abolish the BATFE. It’s a criminal gang from the ground up and has been from the day it was established. End it, without transferring its “job” to another criminal gang like the FBI.

It’s time to encourage everyone to accept their sacred responsibility to be properly armed every day, everywhere they go. It’s time to fire and sue any government employee who questions any person for exercising this absolute, universal human right.

Get government out of the scam of making up rules concerning guns. The cost of ignoring this problem one more day is too high.

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.
