The Stupidity of Gun Grabbers

Coverage of the school shooting in Florida has been copious and sometimes hysterical. The left has immediately begun its clarion call for more gun control, while the right, frightened of being called heartless because they oppose gun control all “for the children,” of course, timidly suggests that this may not be the right time to discuss politics, especially since the bodies aren’t even cold yet. I’m all for some human decency and allowing families to grieve in peace, but frankly I’m sick and tired of being called heartless by people who make boogers look wise in comparison.

Graphic h/t to:

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski became unhinged at the mere thought of any guest coming on the Morning Joe yesterday and disagreeing with her gun control agenda. “Go to your car, and go back home,” she screeched.

Meanwhile, another MSNBC dolt and Mika’s partner both on the show and in the sack Joe Scarborough decided it was a great idea to call people who disagree with the idea of more gun control “domestic terrorists.”

Everytown for Gun Safety Bloombergian Fuckwits for Gun Confiscation began to immediately tout its latest statistics, claiming that 18 school shootings have taken place in the United States since the beginning of the year – a claim so absurd, that even the Washington Post – yes, THAT Washington Post – called bullshit!

I’m not going to shut up. I don’t care what kind of names I’m called for not supporting an obviously flawed, statist agenda and melting into a puddle of irrational goo at some gun-grabbing idiot’s emotionalist rhetoric. I’m going to call their arguments what they are: idiotic.

Why it is that no matter how badly the government FAILS at enforcing the laws already on the books, gun grabbers immediately screech that MOAR GUN LAWZ is the answer, leaving the populace even more disarmed, defenseless, and dependent on the very same blundering authorities that fail to protect them in the first place?

Why is it that the answer to government failure is always more government?

Devin Patrick Kelley, who murdered 26 people in a Texas church last November, was prohibited by law from owning firearms, because he was a domestic abuser. The Air Force failed to report his criminal conviction to the FBI, and he was able to legally purchase any gun he wanted. Worse yet, the Air Force was an abject failure at reporting scores of others convicted of domestic violence, but the gun grabbers’ answer was MOAR GUN LAWZ!

Scumbag racist murderer Dylann Roof was not supposed to have been able to purchase firearms legally. He had an arrest record, and yet, he was able to legally purchase guns due to a “breakdown in the background check system and confusion with paperwork between the FBI, local police departments and county jurisdictions.” Another government FAIL at ensuring that people who legally can’t buy guns shouldn’t be able to purchase them, and yet the gun grabbers’ solution to the problem was MOAR GUN LAWZ!

Mass murderer Omar Mateen was on the FBI’s radar on suspicion of terrorist activity not once, but twice, but somehow FBI failed to put him on a watchlist, which would have prohibited him from owning firearms. But the gun grabbers’ reaction was MOAR GUN LAWZ!

And now, we have Nikolaus Cruz, about whom the FBI received an anonymous tip after he posted an online message that said, “I‘m going to be a professional school shooter.” Reports differ about whether the FBI received one report or two about Cruz’s online behavior, but point is they failed to at the very least investigate the threatening behavior. And again, the gun grabbers’ hysterical please are not for the government to do its damn job, but for MOAR GUN LAWZ!

I can’t even call these idiots useful, unless we’re talking about zombie bait during the apocalypse.

These are people, who are so paralyzed by their hysteria, they are intent on relieving people who are innocent of any wrongdoing of their rights, because a murderous, criminal shitbag committed a heinous act.

These are the same people who condemn all cops for being racist and authoritarian, but want to disarm everyone except those same cops!

And these are the same people who look at obvious government failures to do its job and protect its citizens from violence and demand more laws for the government to fail to enforce.

So no, I’m not going to sit down and shut up in hopes of avoiding being called a gun-humping racist who hates children and wants more murders so that the evil gun industry and NRA can make a profit. I’m going to stand up and proclaim these calls for MOAR GUN LAWZ ludicrous, misguided, hysterical, and pointless.

It’s what they are. Deal with it.

    The same people who advocate stricter gun laws (like those in placid towns such as Chicago, Baltimore and Washington, D.C.) are, also, proclaiming there is an epidemic of rapes and sexual assaults. I guess we need laws making rape and sexual assault illegal and that will end such behavior. Oh, wait . . . .

    Ah, now you’re getting warmed up.

    Why it is that no matter how badly the government FAILS at enforcing the laws already on the books, gun grabbers immediately screech that MOAR GUN LAWZ is the answer
    For two important reasons:
    1) THERE OUGHT TO BE A LAW! People who have been indoctrinated to think that laws and government can make you safe, and that any tragedy/crime/event could have been prevented if only people had cared more before it happened, and DONE SOMETHING!
    2) Laws bind the subject classes. More laws mean more control. More laws mean everyone is bound to have broken at least one, and therefore, the enforcers have power over you (witness the Mike Flynn plea deal).

    they failed to at the very least investigate the threatening behavior
    Well, not entirely. What they failed to do was follow up adequately, given subsequent events. Until we know more, I think we can’t really make that categorical of a statement.

    These are the same people who condemn all cops for being racist and authoritarian, but want to disarm everyone except those same cops!
    Yeah, this one has always made me want to slap people. *smh*

    BTW, did you see “Disgusted”s comments on Gail’s piece? Were they an inspiration?

    • Nicki says:

      Oh, I think they pretty much bungled it.

      “The Federal Bureau of Investigation on Friday acknowledged that it mishandled a January tip that the 19-year-old man accused of killing 17 people at a Florida high school had guns and the desire to kill.”

    • GWB says:

      Well, here’s some more info on the “failed to investigate”:
      The FBI said Friday that more than a month before the shooting rampage at a South Florida high school, the bureau received a warning that the 19-year-old charged in the massacre might carry out an attack at a school — but then investigators failed to act on it.

      “Such a warning should have been investigated “as a potential threat to life,” triggering investigative efforts in the local FBI field office, but “these protocols were not followed” and no further inquiries were made, the bureau said in a statement..”

    I remember way back when Democrats said all they wanted to ban were those cheap ‘Saturday Night Specials’ (they always have a cute name for everything). They assured us they’d never come for our rifles, shotguns and expensive handguns.

    Fast forward. Now they want our ‘assault’ rifles and shotguns. When they talk about ‘common sense’ gun control what they mean is ‘phase 1’. In subsequent phases, common sense and definitions of what’s an ‘assault’ weapon will be stretched more and more until it ends with ‘no-knock’ warrantless raids in the middle of the night to confiscate anything that even remotely looks like it might be a weapon of some sort.

    What we really need are more federal laws against murder. They will prevent murder from happening. Anybody against more federal laws against murder has blood on their hands.
