Never let a crisis go to waste, right? With every mass shooting, they make a new push for gun control. Here are the facts:
An assault weapon is an effective weapon, but other weapons are available that would have had similar results (such as a sawed off 12-gauge). If they can’t get an assault weapon, they will buy other weapons or make a bomb or poison gas, etc. As such, an assault weapons ban will not work. That’s not even assuming that they won’t go to the black market and get one anyway. If you can buy crack, what makes you think you can’t buy an AR-15 after they are made illegal?
The Terrorist/No-Fly list. The issue with this is that you get on this list by them just putting you on there. You have no right to see the “evidence” facing you. It makes getting off the list impossible. What’s to prevent them from saying that right-wing bloggers, tea partiers, etc, are all terrorists. Boom. You’re done. The NRA has said they support this assuming that the FBI investigates you and settles the case. So I will go one further. If you are put on a no-fly/terrorist list, they have to take you to court and they have to settle the case one way or the other after showing you the evidence they have against you. They have 30 days in order to do this. After this, they pay you a $75,000 a day penalty like the EPA charged a Wyoming man that dug a home-made pond on his land.
I remind you, the Orlando terrorist bought his guns legally. The San Bernardino terrorists had a friend buy theirs. This is why gun laws are going to be largely ineffective.
I refuse to give up my rights. Doing so will not make us any safer. Let them live without armed protection for a while and see how they like it.
Long Live the Constitution!
