Rep Swalwell threatens to use nuclear weapons to enforce AWB

I wish I was making this up. Today, Swalwell proposed a $15 billion mandatory confiscation buy-back after a new assault weapons ban: https://twitter.com/RepSwalwell/status/1063535667249012736 People on twitter were not amused.  When confronted, Swalwell doubled down, implying he'd nuke US citizens if they dared resist such confiscations: https://twitter.com/RepSwalwell/status/1063527635114852352 Then he triples down: https://twitter.com/RepSwalwell/status/1063531633771339781 LOL, don't be so dramatic, … Continue reading Rep Swalwell threatens to use nuclear weapons to enforce AWB

Thoughts on the Tree of Life Synagogue mass murder

The basis of this description is a bald-faced appeal to emotion.  A Weapon of War is clearly something extraordinarily dangerous, and by framing … Continue reading Antigun Dishonesty: Banning “Weapons of War” and what that really means

Token Antigun Veteran: The NRA and its allies use jargon to bully gun-control supporters

Have you ever noticed that whenever an "air" of authority is needed, a token antigun veteran or gun owner is trotted out to promote whatever antigun tactic is going to be used to try to silence the people protesting their rights being taken away? Adam Weinstein is just one example.   Before we get to the … Continue reading Token Antigun Veteran: The NRA and its allies use jargon to bully gun-control supporters
