Let's Outlaw Crazy

I have been thinking of a way to satisfy the burning, itching, and uncontrollable urge by progressives to link the shooting at the elementary school in Connecticut with some sort of gun federal confiscation law.

Let logic prevail.

Most, if not all, of the left wing gun control advocates I know - have guns.

Right down the road from me there lived a retired school teacher from DC who had the standard anti-handgun sticker on her Honda. She showed me “her fathers” old gun from when he was a salesman. It was made by Fitchburg Bicycle works, if I remember correctly, probably a .32 caliber that could wound an opponent pretty well if he was close enough. And to make the handgun even more “dangerous” it has some sort of brass knuckles in the grip. She has passed away and I would bet some other anti-handgun family member has it now.

And we all remember Carl Rowan a Washington Post opinion leader of the left who shot, with an illegal handgun, an unarmed, half naked, white, teenager for swimming in his pool.

Sports “stars” are always shooting someone as well.

So why not at least get a head start on gun confiscation. Why not ask liberals, progressives, sports stars, and dare I suggest, Hollywood types, (This includes you, Imus!) to turn in their guns. Have a day each year when just liberals hand over their weapons and ammo.

We could start with Saturday Night Specials then go on to expensive handguns, ending with sporting and assault weapons.

I have suggested in the past that people who don’t have guns simply register at the town hall so it would in effect “out” the real gun owners and thereby create a National Gun Registration list many progressives feel they want.

That idea never caught on, probably because so many liberals have guns.

But this recent shooting by a person with severe mental health issues might be a game-changer. Maybe now liberals will be willing to start a national trend and turn in their guns.

How do you like my new anti-gun slogan?

“Until Guns are Outlawed Let Liberals Turn in Their Guns”

This post is disgusting. WHO is suggesting gun confiscation? Name one. There needs to be sensible gun laws, but no leader is suggesting taking guns away from an owner's cold, dead hands.

I have many friends who have guns, and I'm a supporter of the 2nd Amendment as much as they may be. But those friends who I've talked with also want to have laws that bring some level of control and process to owning guns.

I had to add "Motorcycle Operator" to my almost 50 year old driver's license earlier this year, and I had to undergo a process that's much more extensive than I would if I get a gun. Since I could kill someone, or myself, by driving a motorcycle -- as with a car -- I didn't mind that process at all. I had to visit the motor vehicles office three times -- once to apply, then to take a written test for a learner's permit, then to take a practical driving test. Yet, none of these steps are necessary for buying and using a gun.

Mike Huckabee is trying to make this into a "God" issue by saying it happened because we have removed God from schools -- which is not the case, since anyone can pray anywhere, anytime -- and religion from public discussion, which again is a lie. It's likely now that the NRA -- which makes big money from fear among gun owners -- will put up walls and attack any political leader who has the courage to suggest we need to discuss having a reasonable process for gun ownership.

But we're not going to be able to engage in any responsible discussion to protect our kids or anyone else if we come up with slogans or write posts in blogs that make no sense, just to justify hiding behind those slogans and doing nothing.

Chuck Schumer and a whole host of socialists you admire would love to restict guns out of Americans hands - same as confiscation, without the bloodshed of the impossible task of going door to door.

Driving a motorcycle is a priviledge not a right - as possesing firearms is.

Sensible restrictions used to be part of marriage and look how kooky you get on that issue.

Once again, all I am asking is that in the name of safety and with a goldem opportunity to exploit, all real true to their feelings liberals should turn over their guns to the government you worship.

Do the right thing Jim. Hand over those liberal handguns - first, we'll come for the rifles next tragedy.

Okay -- Ed,

Where in any Constitution anywhere does someone have totally unrestricted access to guns -- and does that include assault weapons, or "guns" that shoot more than "bullets?" How BIG a gun? What's the definition of "gun?" I'd like to see that language that you perceive gives that right.

I support gun ownership, but reasonable restrictions are responsible, and constitutional.
December 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJim Splaine
Jim:

The Constitution clearly states that:

No weapon owned by any American shall be registered unless it has a trailer hitch on it.

I think that is the exact translation.

Its like the obsolete term "marriage" meaning: any combination of people who want to for a sexual bond.

See how this works?

Do you get it yet?

Or have you become lost in progressive talking points?

The Ct. shooting should be the startng point for mandatory prayer in school. How's that for a starting point?

Of course, your answer is meaningless. And the actual 2nd Amendment refers to a "well-regulated militia," and that's where the power is authorized to, indeed, regulate guns.

We can't have a dialogue about solutions with people who don't want to have a dialogue about solutions. Some people are so wrapped up in their know-nothing philosophy that they can't engage in real conversation. Kind of sad, because everyone should be involved in this discussion -- nationally and statewide.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Mr. Naile,

You guys believe only what you want to believe. If you had read it, you would have read that the Constitution clearly states:

No weapon owned by any American shall be registered unless it has a trailer hitch on it AND a reflective tail-light.

Clearly, the solution is to take Jimbo's "power" away to possess a bang-bang. The rest of us will keep on owning our guns because it a right, which like all rights doesn't need a Lib to translate into Constitutional Individual Powers. It's sad, really, that Jimbo Baggins doesn't even know the difference, but not unexpected, because for Libs all actions by individuals must be permitted by the almighty State. Praise the Grate State!

P.S. Hey Jimbo, what does Jesus say about guns? While you're at it, could you provides us his scriptures on taxation?

I'm wondering of you could clear up a bit of conservative double speak for me. Why does the RIGHT to own a gun need to be completely unfettered but my RIGHT to vote is fair game for regulating and disenfranchisement? It kinda makes you look like hypocrites, you know.
December 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTroll
Completely unfettered, Troll? You might want to check out a few specialty brazier stores to wrap your mind around the concept. I bet we all could come up with a list of those who shouldn't own guns: crazy people, those who use force to usurp people's rights, and Libs. Kinda obvious to me.

Regarding voting, seems like the same list would apply.

Notice how on most of my blogs the lefties change the subject?

I simply point out the fact tha liberals have guns just like anyone else - the rich ones have body guards who have guns.

And because my blog doesn't fit in with proressive talking points - we are off on other subjects.

Proof positive that liberals know other liberals are armed to the teeth.

Why Ed, I done think you hit a nerve in that them armed teeth.

I know a liberal's liberal who borrowed a Harrington Richards 22 from me years ago and has yet to give it back.

Is that and armed liberal?

Does he really want something unregistered?

Isn't an H&R 22 a Saturday Night Special?

I know a small 22 was Carl Rowan's favorite handgun.
December 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEd Naile
Ed –
Just like a lib: what's yours is mine. Does Carl's small caliber reflect his dainty sensibilities, and did he stow it away in his man-purse?

Carl's excuse was that it was "his son's gun." The son was some sort of guard or agent or something.

As usual, it is rather interesting that a "professional" anything would carry a 22 paper puncher and not a gun that could be used in real life.

Find me a retired cop, guard, agent, anything that wants a 22 instead of a 38 or more.

They don't exist in the world I know.

The only reasons to keep a such a small caliber is to practrice with it and switch to the same gun in a larger caliber, or as a throw away if you accidently shoot someone or get in trouble.

My quess is that is WAS Carl Rowan's gun and it shows a typical liberal misunderstanding of handguns.

Well Troll if you live in another state you bet I'm going to infringe on your 'right' to vote! LOL

That said, the Dem nutjobs are already plotting to reverse our long held gun laws, against NH values once again.

They are attempting to reverse educaitonal and parental rights as well.

Don't they ever learn???

Let the law be, it was voted in and passed and signed by a Dem governor...
