There’s an easy question

Are Virginia gun laws to blame for gun trafficking in New York?

No. NY laws that effectively subsidize gun trafficking — making it profitable to buy guns at full retail price and smuggle them to NY — are responsible.

And here’s a question of my own for the victim disarmers: If the ready availability of guns in permissive [insert state of your choice] causes crime in your restrictive crime-ridden state, why doesn’t it cause crime in the firearms-source state?

Taxachusetts blames New Hampshire, NY blames VA (and everybody else). And we just look at relative crimes rates and blame the criminals in those other locales.

And that is WHY we mock you

Don’t mock liberals calling for gun control in wake of OSU attack
It is heartbreaking that 11 young people were injured in this incident, although I have not heard that any of their injuries are life-threatening. If the assailant had used a semi-automatic rifle, like the young (white, American) man in the church in South Carolina or the young (white, American) man in the theater in Colorado, we would be dealing with multiple deaths and dozens of injuries.

See? The moronic Landen says knife and vehicular injuries aren’t life threatening (which would come as a surprise to the CDC). And that if the asshole had used a “semi-automatic rifle” like Charleston’s asshole lots of people would have died.

Except the Charleston asshole didn’t use a semi-automatic rifle. He used a .45 caliber handgun, for which purchase he passed a background check.

And that, Ms. Landen, is why we ridicule you. You can’t get basic facts like weapons used, or laws in force, straight, and call for what already is while ignoring what isn’t.

You’re a dumbass.

Ayotte should be gone, but this isn’t why

NH voters hold Ayotte accountable for gun control votes
Just months after my mom was killed, the U.S. Senate was set to consider the Manchin-Toomey bill that would have expanded background checks for gun sales. I joined other gun violence survivors on Capitol Hill asking senators to vote for stronger gun laws. As a fellow New Englander, I tried to meet with Sen. Ayotte, but she never made time to talk to me.

Then she voted against the bill. In a subsequent constituent meeting in her office, Ayotte told me that expanded background checks would be a burden on gun store owners. That was her word – a burden. As if having my mother murdered in an elementary school was not a burden I will live with for the rest of my days.

Bull-effin’-shit.

Quite aside from the inconvenient fact that expanded preemptively-prove-your-innocence checks wouldn’t have stopped Some Asshole who murdered his his mother and stole her guns, Ayotte’s actions are mischaracterized.

They were worse.

In fact, Ayotte pissed off RKBA supporters by voting for cloture on the Gottlieb-Manchin-Toomey-Schumer victim disarmament amendment so that it could go to a vote. But when it did go to the Senate floor, she finally voted against in a pique of ire because Senate leaders wouldn’t let her further amend it to add even more restrictions based on mental health.

Ayotte was fine with the human/civil rights violations already in the amendment; she just wanted even more.

You know, he almost has a point there*

How can we reduce US firearm suicide rates?
Smart gun technology, such as fingerprint recognition, limits use of a gun to the owner and permitted users. Mandating that new guns use the new technology and instituting trade-in programs to replace old guns with safer ones can prevent a household’s firearms from being used for suicide by family members or others with access to the firearm.

If the Armatix iP1 is indicative of smart guns, mandating its use might reduce firearms suicide by ten to twenty percent on failures alone.

Dear Creeps,

[Sent to Representatives Paul Ryan and Buddy Carter; and Senators Mitch McConnell, David Perdue, and Johnny Isakson.]

I am horrified.

I am horrified that _any_ elected official would even momentarily contemplate

1. Implementing universal background checks (better called universal preemptively prove your innocence checks) in response to terrorists who passed background checks (the San Bernardino shooter purchased his own guns, except for what he had a friend buy because he didn’t want anyone to notice how many he was acquiring; the Fort Hood shooter had purchased his firearm _and_ held a security clearance; the Orlando lunatic passed multiple background checks).

2. Implementing background checks in response to a lunatic who murdered his own mother to steal her guns. How anyone with two neurons to rub together would think an under-age murder would wait for his NICS check to process boggles my _rational_ mind.

3. Adding those listed in _investigative_ terror databases to the prohibited persons list. Those would be the same databases feeding the selectee/no-fly lists which have enabled the TSA to catch exactly zero terrorists. On the bright side, notoriously anti-rights Sen. Kennedy was on the no-fly list (along with lesbians, nuns, reporters, and at least one inconvenient wife of an immigration officer who wanted to be rid of her), so maybe all the senators or representatives stupid enough to vote for such thing will find themselves bereft of their own rights.

4. That apparently everyone in DC is totally ignorant of the definition of “infringe,” and none of you have dictionaries.

5. That your collective ignorance of the Second Amendment extends to the Fourth and Fifth Amendments.

6.And that seemingly none of you bothered to read that pesky Constitution before taking oath to uphold it.

In short, I am horrified that Congress is packed with ignorant, evil assholes of Soviet proportion, who find due process inconvenient.

I am ashamed that this country elects dumbasses who think shrouds are shoulder things that go up, Barretts fire heat-seeking bullets, the MCX is an AR-15, are incapable of differentiating between a clip and a magazine, that AR-pattern semi-automatic rifles are assault rifles, and that the .223 Remington/5.56 NATO — deemed too wimpy for deer hunting in many jurisdictions — is insanely powerful and lethal.

I am angered that such stupid people would use that ignorance to impose preemptive violations of human/civil rights on those who did not commit crimes like Sandy Hook, Aurora, or Orlando.

But I simply accept it as par for the course that you collective fools haven’t figured out that not only are criminals called that because they commit crimes like violating your little firearms rules, but that under HAYNES they cannot be required to self-incriminate by participating in background checks.

Perhaps by now you — or more likely a semi-literate staffer tasked with keeping you isolated from your irate constituents’ opinions –are thinking, “Oh, no; that isn’t me. I’m one of the good guys. I don’t do that.”

Great. PROVE IT. Introduce an Article I, Section 5, clause 2 bill of expulsion for those offensive oathbreakers who DO those things. Push it to a vote. Prove you at least _tried_. Until then, you are — at best — a morally bankrupt enabler, condoning those actions.

Yes, I know it doesn’t do anything but amuse functionally illiterate staffers, and get me on lists.

What rising rates?

Perhaps Comey should read his own agency’s reports.

FBI Director James Comey Deplores ‘Peculiar Indifference’ to Rising Murders Across Country
“Something is happening in America,” with “cities that have nothing in common with each other experiencing [an] uptick” in violence, Comey said at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, an icon of the civil rights movement.

Nationally, the murder rate is dropping to record lows.

murderrate

True, there have been recent spikes in certain cities. But they absolutely do have something in common: decades of Democrap control and victim disarmament.
