A good article from “Glork”

Found in a twitter thread: https://glork.home.blog/2019/02/18/l-a-guns/ Perhaps the most invidious and patently false conceit of the anti-gun faction is its assertion that contemporary gun culture is intrinsically racist and reactionary. It’s a claim that reinforces the Left’s self-congratulatory Manichean taxonomy of a world divided between a virtuous, intelligent, tolerant, and progressive “us,” and a benighted, … Continue reading A good article from “Glork”

Republican’s Dissent to HR-8

Y'all... you need to read this blistering smackdown dissent of that garbage fire UBC bill that I broke down in the last post: H.R. 8 is based on false premises and provides nothing more than false hope. However, when the bill's numerous flaws were exposed during consideration of the bill, the Chairman refused to hear … Continue reading Republican’s Dissent to HR-8

HR 8 – Universal Background Checks – Just As Stupid As You’d Think

The text to HR-8 is out, or at least this report that is accompanying it: https://www.congress.gov/congressional-report/116th-congress/house-report/11 Let's break down this absolute trash: Background and Need for the Legislation In any given year, more than 120,000 Americans are shot in murders, assaults, suicides and suicide attempts, unintentional shootings, or police actions. Of these, 35,000 result in … Continue reading HR 8 – Universal Background Checks – Just As Stupid As You’d Think

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

Once again, I'm forcibly reminded that there's people who want to kill me, simply because of my religion. On Saturday, Pittsburgh experienced the worst mass murder against Jewish people in the history of the United States: 11 people were killed and several more were wounded.  The murderer was a virulently antisemitic & racist psychopath, who … Continue reading Thoughts on the Tree of Life Synagogue mass murder

Another Doctor for “Gunsense” giving bad medical advice

I came across a couple tweets this morning that really astounded me: https://twitter.com/DocTran2018/status/990658104319606784 This is bad.  REALLY bad, because Tran is an actual medical doctor, and she's dispensing advice that is not only counterfactual, but will cause harm to people. Dr. Tran is a pediatrician.  She should know that hearing damage is permanent & cumulative.  … Continue reading Another Doctor for “Gunsense” giving bad medical advice

Philando Castile’s death has nothing to do with the NRA, and no it is not “proof” they are “racist.”

I've seen "The NRA is RACIST!!!" claimed over and over again, often using the death of Philando Castile as if it is "proof" of this claim.  The people making this argument do so without knowledge of gun control laws or the full facts behind this case. The Philando Castile shooting - Background: On July 6, … Continue reading Philando Castile’s death has nothing to do with the NRA, and no it is not “proof” they are “racist.”

Antigun Dishonesty: Banning “Weapons of War” and what that really means

Every so often the antigun zealots let their mask slip and reveal their true intentions, and the recent tactic of calling ordinary semiautomatic rifles "Weapons of War" is what we will talk about today. 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
