Let’s Ban Knives Too

Posted by Troy on 27th March 2018 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

They asked a 13ish-year-old why he was marching for their lives.  He responded “My brother was shot.”

Okay, so if your brother was stabbed, shall we try to ban knives?

I know what you are going to say… “That… DIFFERENT!” which is pretty much the hallmark of someone that doesn’t have a good explanation for how they feel.

I think we can all agree that no one NEEDS a knife that is greater than 2″ in length.  With a little patience, a paring knife will do anything you need to do.  So why do we have to have this high capacity… sorry… longer knives?  For CONVENIENCE?  Because you  think it’s fun to cut huge swaths of meat?  YOU MAKE ME SICK!

Can we agree that personal tragedy is a stupid reason to make any legislation?  Every year, 20 babies fall into 5 gallon buckets and drown.  Do we make it a law that people have to bust these buckets in half or that they come with detachable bottoms to prevent such deaths?  Or do we accept that it’s a tragedy and feel sorry for the families that it happens to.

You may say, “You care more about your right to buy an AR-15 than about kids’s lives!”  But that is not the case.  I don’t want to ban the AR-15 because it wouldn’t really do anything.  If he couldn’t get an AR-15, he’d use shotguns and pistols or a host of other choices.  If guns were not available, a suicide vest or some other horrifying concepts would suffice.  So why should I give up my right when it will not accomplish ANYTHING?  Just to say “We did something!”  Yes… we did something useless and removed a right in the process.  That doesn’t seem a noble goal.  It seems more like an act of vanity than anything.

You say, “You have been brainwashed by the NRA!  They’re just a tool of the gun lobby!”  Nah.  I joined the NRA because I love and understand the 2nd Amendment and want it protected.  Frankly, if they are serving the gun lobby, I flat out don’t care.  All I care about is that the 2nd Amendment stay intact.  I didn’t embrace the 2nd Amendment because of the NRA.  I embraced the NRA because of the 2nd Amendment.  Get it straight.

You say, “We’re not talking about doing away with the 2nd Amendment!  We’re just walking about COMMON SENSE gun control.”  Well, most of what you call “common sense” actually wouldn’t solve a damn thing…so I kinda question if it is really common sense.  But here’s a serious question: “If it’s NOT about doing away with the 2nd Amendment… why are you demanding FEDERAL gun legislation?”  You see, the states can do pretty much whatever they want.  You mean to tell me that Miami, FL has the same needs as Cody, WY?  THEY DON’T.  Why not let them decide what gun laws make sense for them?  The greatest thing is that, in so doing, you don’t have to actually disregard the 2nd Amendment because states have a very large leeway in their gun regulations.  So why is it so very important that it happen at the Federal level?   Because the end goal is total disarmament.  And that is why we will never give an inch.

Long Live the Constitution!

The 2nd Amendment and Hillary Clinton

Posted by Troy on 11th October 2016 in Current Events, Political

I am what you call a single issue voter, when it comes right down to it.  There is one issue that I will elevate above all else.  I could believe in 99.9% of what someone says…if they want to do away with the 2nd Amendment, they can go straight to hell.

Here’s what I remember about Hillary Clinton.  I remember Wako.  I remember Ruby Ridge.  Her husband was rabid about going after people who had guns. In the case of Wako, they used military force against US citizens.  David Karish went into town every week.  They could have arrested him at any time.  However, they did a siege of his compound.  Ruby Ridge…hell…they were actually innocent and ended up being killed by our government based on rumors.  Why?  Because of guns.  Hillary is an anti-gunner of the highest order, despite the fact that she wants to have guns around herself and her family 24/7.  Why?  Because SHE’S important.  She needs to be protected.  You?  You’re just a friggin’ nobody.  Surely no one would want to kill you…or rape you.

And that’s where I come up.  You can say Trump has sexually assaulted someone.  Well…no one has even come forward to actually accuse him, other than the media.  There we go, but that’s all there is to it, isn’t it?  Meanwhile, rappers can talk all kinds of shit about women.  You wanna talk about objectifying women.  Shit, let’s look at Hollywood for a second.  Arch-Feminist, Beyoncé, parades around in lingerie and wants to pretend that she is all about women’s empowerment.  We have full industries that are focused around objectifying women.  Not only do we not say SHIT about it, but we give these people millions of dollars and critical acclaim and awards and talk about how brilliant all these people are.  So, ya know what?  Your complaints fall on deaf ears.  You celebrate indoctrination of objectification and then want to pretend that your offended?  Shit…BILL CLINTON RAPED WOMEN AND HIS WIFE DESTROYED THEM!  Why did she destroy them?  Oh…maybe the first one she thought he was innocent.  I doubt it.  I seriously doubt it, but I’ll give it to you.  But after that?  After the third and fourth time?  No…Bill IS  a sexual predator.  There’s not argument about it.  So she protected her husband, destroyed his accusers so that she could maintain political power.  Fun.  Read Disgraceful Persecution of a Boy by Mark Twain.  You support the culture.  You’re just as guilty as Trump.  Not to mention…here again…BILL CLINTON RAPED WOMEN.

So, lets accept the media’s accusations, just for kicks and giggles.  That means that a sexual predator WILL BE IN THE WHITE HOUSE.  One, however, will let our women keep weapons.  Another will do everything in her power to get rid of guns.  She will appoint Supreme Court Justices which will interpret the 2nd Amendment to read that it only applies to well regulated militias (despite the numerous writings of the Founding Fathers which flat out say that the 2nd Amendment is about being able to defend your rights against the government and is an individual right).  She will then pull and Angela Merkel and bring in Syrian refugees which will molest and rape American women (French and German youtube assaults where no one does a damn thing to stop the assaults).  To add insult to injury, they will demand to take away your right to keep and bear arms BECAUSE of the Syrian refugees which they inflicted us with.  But Chelsea Clinton will be protected.  She’ll be safe…and no one wants to rape Hillary anyway.  So it’s all good.  You?  You’re unimportant.  No one’s gonna wanna rape you, so why do you need to defend yourself?

This…this is the reason why women should be completely against Hillary Clinton.  God created men.  Sam Colt made them equal.  Take away guns, and a woman is no match for a 200 pound man with a raging hard-on and no sense of morality…the side-effect of 50 years of trash entertainment.

This is what’s at stake.

Long Live the Constitution!

Assault Weapons Bans are Useless and Liability Protection for Gun Manufacturers

Posted by Troy on 19th December 2012 in Current Events, Political

They say 62% of Americans are for the banning of assault weapons.  Quick question:  Why?  We had one.  Do you know why we don’t have one anymore?  No, the answer isn’t, “Because of the NRA.”  It’s because it didn’t reduce crime.  Do you honest to God think that a criminal is going to say, “I wanna commit a crime!  What, I can’t use an AR-15?  Oh well…I guess I’ll just attend community college, get a job, maybe meet a girl and get married and raise some kids…”  Or do you think they will say, “That’s okay.  I’ll just use this sawed off shotgun instead.”

The killer already had a gun.  This law wouldn’t have stopped him, but even if he didn’t, do you think that the result would have been better if he had used a 12 gauge?  Given the fact that the victims were in neat little rows, a few shotgun blasts would have made that room a slaughterhouse.  An AR-15 is great for a variety of purposes.  Many enthusiasts pick it or the AK-47 as the best all around gun.  However, at close quarters, there is no more devastating weapon than the 12 gauge.  Where assault weapons really shine is at mid to long (but not seriously long) range.  My point?  The gun choice is largely unimportant.  Two pistols would have had equal ammo capacity or a .22 loaded with stinger rounds would have done the job just as well given who he had chosen to target.  Outlawing one type of weapon would not have saved those kids.  Hell, he could have used a sword and cleared that room.

Finally, the Huffington Post has a story about how the families of the victims are being denied the opportunity to seek restitution…from the gun manufacturer!  Ok…why do the gun manufacturers have any liability here?  They didn’t pull the trigger.  If you want them to be on the hook, then you have to agree with the following:

1)  You can sue Ford and Jack Daniels when someone dies at the hands of a drunk driver.

2)  You can sue a Ginsu when someone is stabbed to death.

3)  You can sue Louisville Slugger when someone is bludgeoned to death.

4)  You can sue God when someone is drowned.  Hey…He made water, right?

You think all of these examples are asinine, and you should.  Why do you think differently because it’s guns?  The answer is because it is guns, and you want to get rid of them, and you will use any means necessary to do it.

Gun deaths per year: 31,000 (17,000 suicides and probably shouldn’t be counted, so 14,000 deaths)

Doctor accident deaths per year: 120,000  (funny)

Drug overdose deaths: 27,000 (maybe we should make these illegal to stop these?)

Abortions in the US this year: 1,200,000 (insane!  right?  Talk about saving children’s lives!  ha ha)

Smoking deaths: 443,000 per year

Obesity deaths: 300,000 per year (Maybe we should make McDonald’s illegal?)

Drunk driving deaths: 10,000 per year

Driving accident deaths: 33,000 per year

We could make a lotta stuff illegal and save a lot of lives.  So why don’t we get rid of all this stuff!  We can move to just public transportation (read 2084!).  Come on!  Join the club!  Drink the Kool Aid!

Think for yourselves, guys.  Think rationally and logically.

Long Live the Constitution!

Flags at half-mast

Posted by Troy on 18th December 2012 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Okay, I’m sick of the flags flying at half-mast.  If that sounds cold and heartless, I’m sorry.  Ever since 9/11, we have been flying flags at half-mast over everything.  I remember the first “Patriot’s Day” (9/11 anniversary…this failed to stick).  They put the flag at half-mast, and I went ballistic.  I refused to put the flag at half-mast.  I wanted to run up a second pole and put that bad boy up double-mast.  The flag at half-mast is to announce the passing of a person of leadership.  It hails form the days when the fort flag would be put at half-mast to inform the soldiers and others that a leader had died.  Now it’s become a rite of mourning.  Worse yet, it has become a rite of mourning for people you didn’t even know.  I can understand someone lowering their flag when their father dies…but for Whitney Houston?  The act of lowering the flag has a depressive effect as well, depressing your spirit and making you more docile.  Not only that, but it’s being used as a weapon against us.  You see, you’re not allowed to argue.  Take for instance the Sandy Hook killings.  Flags are at half-mast.  You should be depressed.  Instead of it being a regional tragedy, it is converted to a national tragedy that we are all responsible for.  At the same time, they will immediately start pressing their agenda to ban guns.  However, if the NRA or anyone else gets out and defends individual rights and the 2nd Amendment, they would be branded as insensitive.  As such, the gun control fanatics get a jump on those who would promote individual rights in framing the debate or bullying public opinion.  ”If you’re not for gun control, you obviously want more dead children!”  The thing is that this is done at every opportunity, not just for guns.  Watch for this tactic, and you will see.

Long Live the Constitution!
