Hell yeah, we are gonna take your AR-15s.

Beta announced this proudly stating that AR-15 owners support it as they don’t need it for hunting (This is a lie.  If they  felt that way, they could give them up without Beta’s help.).  Let’s take a look at who owns the majority of these guns.

1 – Possible mass shooters.  These guns were used in about 25% of mass shooting and it would be intellectually dishonest for me to say otherwise.  However, the number of these individuals are statistically unimportant, mere aberrations regardless of how devestating their actions.

2 – Hunters.  You can use the round for hunting.

3 – Recreational shooters.  It is a fun rifle to shoot.

4 – People who fear home invasions with multiple attackers.  This has happened, and it is a highly effective choice.

5 -People that fear a government run amok.

See, the thing is that I believe the bulk of the owners are the 5th group.  They are not going to comply.  One guy tweeted that if Beta tried, he would kill Beta.  Twitter took the tweet down as threatening, but it is no more threatening than if a woman responded to the threat of being raped with “if you try, i will kill you.”  The Second Amendment is there precisely to stop what Beta is suggesting.

The real sad thing is that the tweet is wrong.  Beta would not be the one being shot.  It will be Deputy Joe and John Q Citizen dying at Beta’s decree. People like Beta never put their own lives on the line.

Long live the Constitution!

Unniversal Background Checks

Posted by Troy on 6th September 2019 in Political

Well, it finally happened.  A mass shooter bought his gun in a private sale.  Naturally, since this happened one time, we have to make a new law to handle thousand and thousand transactions.

Some people would say “what is the harm of making John pay $5 for a background check when he buys a gun from Joe?”

The only issue is that it creates a de facto registry.  As such, hardcore gun rights people will never go along with it.

I will attempt to create a system that I think people will accept.

1 – It only applies to “assault weapon” sales,

2 – The seller’s information is not recorded as it is unimportant,

3- and it is voluntary.

If you choose to forgo a background check, and that weapon is used in a crime, you can be charged with being an accessory to the crime and/or be liable for civil proceedings for wrongful death.

Long live the Constitution!
