Another Dangerous Fool on Gun Banning

Another Dangerous Fool on Gun Banning

December 12, 2015 news 5

Here is another fool who knows more about your second amendment than you. Another wacko who knows more about your right to bear arms than you. Yes. Another naive fool who believes guns can just disappear.

A bit about the author from her own site.

Phoebe Maltz Bovy is a writer based in Princeton, New Jersey. She holds a doctorate in French and French Studies from New York University.

I know Phoebe Shmaltz is a fool in the two opening sentences of her article

Ban guns. All guns. Get rid of guns in homes, and on the streets, and, as much as possible, on police.

I just can’t imagine the type of world in which you must reside where you subscribe to such naivety. We have been attempting to get guns off the streets for how many decades? There are more guns than ever. Our rap heroes and cultural icons have verses about murdering with high powered AK 47s.

Still Miss Shmaltz continues…

Then there is the privilege argument. If you grew up somewhere in America where gun culture wasn’t a thing (as is my situation; I’m an American living in Canada), or even just in a family that would have never considered gun ownership, you’ll probably be accused of looking down your nose at gun culture. As if gun ownership were simply a cultural tradition to be respected, and not, you know, about owning guns. Guns… I mean, must it really be spelled out what’s different? It’s absurd to reduce an anti-gun position to a snooty aesthetic preference.

She talks about a ban and speaks to the idea that we must also confiscate guns from current owners and no one should be exempt. To that I say

There are 270 million registered guns in America. How many unregistered? 89 million registered gun owners. This embarrassing government has been working to address 10 million illegal immigrants for over a decade. They have failed so miserably that the guy from the apprentice is running away with the next election.

How in the hell would they ever root out all the guns? Miss Shmaltz? The answer is they wouldn’t. Criminals would still have guns and smart Americans would have unregistered firearms. This would create even more of a problem.

It’s not about dividing society into “good” and “bad” gun owners. It’s about placing gun ownership itself in the “bad” category.

This line really speaks to the fundamental problem. There is nothing “bad’ about gun ownership. There are no “good” or “bad” guns. Because of ignorance to the fact that a gun can be bought, stored, shot, cleaned and stored again safely and without anyone getting killed (not to mention this happens daily all over the country) this knee jerk reaction of BAN is what comes of it. Uninformed frantic solutions spat out over a non-dairy, Sumatran, fair traded frappuccino and an ipad.

Have bans ever really worked? Guns, coke, pot, heroine, porn, meth, alcohol, MURDER……

More to the point: Does the fact that someone opposes gun control demonstrate that they’re culturally sensitive to the concerns of small-town whites, as well as deeply committed to fighting police brutality against blacks nationwide? I’m going to go with no and no on these.

This article comes to a stuttering end slowly and painfully like a 1970 AMC Gremlin but not before a sweeping statement like the one above. A broad brush stroke that paints you and I as apparent racists because……guns…..and culturally insensitive because……..assault weapons?

Bravo Miss. Shmultz

    Tell the families of their tragic loss or should I rephrase it as a needless tragic loss for it seems as with every situation these cowards ply their religious hatred of the Christan where they have no opposition of this infection upon the world. We extend our hands to help and they have bitten it. When one has a rabid animal you have one choice destroy it. I dont think I need to be any clearer. With a religion with so many peaceful prophets mentioned in islam why do they choose to follow a twisted and immoral slave owner. They bring us the medieval mindset and expect us to drop every freedom we have fought for and accept islam. Many leaders have tried the Marxist government and now they wish to add the caliphate rule. None have succeeded because too many cannot bend to this immoral religion of pure hatred. Stand and resist or the infection will spread.

    Well said Grampa, We are a Constitutional Republic, the only one in the world! The only gov’t that the people are free to pursue their dreams.Though our present regime would like to change it to a third world marxist dictatorship, that’s why we all have guns We the People will never let that happen!

    The purpose of the second amendment is not as much for hunting or home/self defense. The purpose of the second amendment is to allow the people to have the means to overthrow the federal government in the event that the government becomes dictatorial. Anti-gun zealots have yet to address this part of the debate. As it is, we, the people, have already compromised by agreeing to not allowing civilians to have automatic (machine gun) weapons as well as cannons and tanks. The second amendment is the ONLY thing keeping the government from becoming oppressive (although some would
    argue that it already has).
