VENT-TIME! Reactions to proposed gun laws. Plus sarcastic gun-related memes and political cartoons.
It’s time for this. I’ve hit overload and about to blow a gasket. When I reference “you” in this rant, “you” is directed to the people who are completely against any new gun laws and regulations who are raising a big stink.
I am so sick and tired of hearing certain gun-owners crying that their Second Amendment rights will be violated if any restrictions are put in place. Seriously? A violation of the Second Amendment? This “dumbing down” act needs to stop and you need to WAKE UP! To do background checks and remove military-grade weapons – including those that the NRA has just barely made legal – is not unconstitutional and does not violate your Second Amendment! We have rules, regulations and laws in place for a reason otherwise it would be a free-for-all, and this must include gun ownership.
If everyone is so concerned about their constitutional rights, then let’s be fair to the other amendments, too, rather than picking and choosing – just like how parts of the bible are ignored because they’re not convenient. How about the First Amendment? Then we need to remove all laws of censorship. People on TV will then be able to say “fuck” and “cunt” on any channel and any time they want. And if people what to talk about fucking during prime time when kids are likely to watch that show, they can. After all, this is the right to free speech. Solution… If you don’t want to hear language and talk like this on TV, then don’t watch it. What’s that? You have a right to watch TV without having your kids exposed to bad language and pornographic discussions of sex????….
…. I also have a right to be in public without having to worry about someone carrying and using an assault rifle with a 100-round magazine on me and those around me. The odds of being hit increase tremendously with this type of firearm and cartridge. After all, they were created for the purpose of killing the “enemy” during times of war.
What’s that you say? That’s not the same thing? No, you’re right. It isn’t. Saying “fuck” on TV will not kill 20 little kids going to school. Nor people going to the movies. And so on and so on. Definitely not the same thing.
If – and when – you pass a background check to make sure you’re not a felon, and don’t have a restraining order, and haven’t been diagnosed with a mental illness that known to bring on violence, you may purchase a gun. Ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom, the Second Amendment was upheld just for you. What’s that? You want military grade? Then why stop at an AK. Why not a shoulder-held rocket launcher? I’m sure the NRA can do something to categorize this as a firearm. What’s that? Oh, you didn’t pass the background check? Sorry about your luck. Except for the mental illness, you messed up so it’s time to soldier up and deal with it.
Do you realize that the people on a terrorist watch list can purchase a gun?? They cannot fly, but they sure as hell can buy a gun. The vast majority of people wanting stricter gun laws are wanting only that >> stricter gun laws. Not to take away all the guns. Sure there are some people would like them all removed, but not near enough for it to happen.
Have some common sense people!!! Stop being so melodramatic and paranoid! If the government (apparently this is specifically Obama’s plan) has this big conspiracy to come to our doors and throw us all in FEMA camps, you think a closet full of AKs will stop them? Hell no! And these FEMA camps? Oh, puuhhlleeeze. If you just think Obama wants to just take away our guns, THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN! Chill out!!! Oh, sure, hypothetically it can… but realistically, it won’t!!!
And would you really want to be part of the group that must remove go to people’s homes to take their guns? Hell NO!
Now, in reference to these FEMA camps we’re all supposed to be taken to…. I’ll play along with the “government is out to get us” conspiracy. Think about this…. Just who would be the ones having to do this? Our brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, and partners/spouses serving in the forces. It would take a MASSIVE amount of soldiers to round up the even a town of 15,000. I can guarantee that the majority would not comply as they realize US citizens include their family, their parents, their children, their spouses, that are living in these homes that we are supposedly all going to be taken out of.
Then there are the commanders of all levels. Do you think they would all agree to something like this? These are people, not drones and not robots, cyborgs, terminators, whatever. And not hypnotized or brainwashed – well, at least that severely. What do you think is going to happen? A secret word is said over all communication channels that when said will turn all military personal into walking zombie-like people with glazed-over eyes ready to do any and every command when given? “Must… take… people… to… FEMA… Camp… #0000BS….”
Newtown and Aurora alone were bad enough. Just imagine the shooting and deaths that would happen if this actually occurred. Although there are many politicians and appointed figures that I do not like at all, I am very confident that none of them would want this blood bath on their hands. Clinton was almost impeached for having his dick sucked. I am pretty sure a move like this would definitely impeach the president as well as remove anyone else from their position.
For something this massive to be successful, then it would take nearly everyone in our government and military to be in agreement. Not gonna happen.
I do believe that there is and has been a lot about and done by our government that we don’t know about. For example, I firmly believe that 9/11 is one of the biggest lies in history – but I’m not going to get into that here and now. But not everything our government does is a huge conspiracy theory.
In regards to filtering felons…. I agree that this alone will not solve the problem, but it’s a start and it will help. We must start somewhere as there will never be a perfect answer or fix. I have a very very good friend who is a felon who will never be able to legally carry a gun, and she is one of the most passive non-violent people I’ve met. Twenty-years ago she made a stupid mistake and committed a non-violent felony. She has no problem with this law if it is for the good of our society and will help save innocent lives. There are other ways to protect herself and takes those measures.
Stop being so melodramatic and paranoid! Leave the fantasy world of “what if’s” and enter the world of common sense. Remove the hate from your heart and replace it with compassion and wisdom.
Phew. I feel better now. Now, let’s have some fun at these idiot’s expense. Yes, I’m being cruel, but damn, these are so full of truth. Sometimes the truth hurts.
You know, passing a drug test isn’t a bad idea in order to purchase a gun. I’m dead serious (pardon the pun).
I’m actually including this photo below to make a point. This family is armed with non-military-grade firearms. THIS is what gun-ownership should be and is perfectly fine with the majority of people. So simmer down, Francis!
These next two people are a perfect example of those people who think this is one big conspiracy and that Obama and the government is out to take our guns away and throw us in FEMA camps. If you are against any new gun control, these are the people you follow.
