Them apples are damn near touching the ground, seems foolish to not pick them!
The first series is a Joyce foundation campaign called “We Beat the NRA”. They’re taking minor victories and ignoring defeats to attempt to steam the hemorrhaging of money, and near-fatal lack of moral in the ranks.
Ok so this guy lost a son in Columbine massacre. But he’s talking about the “Gun Show Loophole” as if it has any relevance. It didn’t, as 18 year old Robyn Anderson bought four of the guns LEGALLY, then ILLEGALLY given to the shooters. These details are undisputed, and she never faced any charges. The law was broken, and justice was never served. Other people ILLEGALLY sold guns directly to the killers, and they served time in prison. Details can be found here. So the laws were passed because the anti-gun forces LIED. Also this was all back in 1999. That’s a long time ago politically.
Now this after a video on Columbine is pretty ironic. You don’t want LEGAL guns on campus, but we know that ILLEGAL guns show up, and while the legal ones pose no problems, the people who illegally bring guns to school strictly for murder.
Campus carry is gaining popularity, but its still well on the front-lines. Keep patting yourself on the back, we’ll get there.
Then there’s this comment from Joan Peterson:
Migo- explain to me how self defense is an inalienable right….Citizens need training. You guys try to tell me you are better trained than officers which is simply not true. I didn’t say you should be trained like an officer. I said you should have training to carry a gun around with you in public places. Just like you have to be trained to drive a car. You can’t get a license without training. How did the police training get in here?
We’ve talked about Police Qualifiers here, and you need to be a REALLY bad shot to not qualify. Of course many states DON’T require training, and many more don’t require live fire, or any serious live fire for permits, and of course there’s the growing rank of states that don’t even require permits (be it for just open, or all carry).
So not only will Joan never relent, but there’s no “Blood in the Streets”, so I guess training isn’t really all that relevant.
Of course she doesn’t believe you have a right to defend yourself, so she’s hardly a sane person.
Oh and remember she’s anti-freedom, not anti-gun.
In my home town, we have a lovely wooden walk way extending along the shores of Lake Superior from the Canal Park area of downtown to the far eastern end of Duluth. I walk on this Lakewalk often with friends and go there for gatherings ( it is near the Memorial for gun violence victims). The City Council in Duluth just recently decided that people will no longer be allowed to smoke cigarettes along this walk way….So, to stop nuisance crimes and improve the quality of life along the Lakewalk, there will be no smoking. Guns?- allowed on city property and can’t be prohibited. Is there something wrong with protecting citizens from gun crimes and gun violence along the Lakewalk by telling people their guns are not welcome along the walkway?
Again, why should they be banning smoking? Its not like the already spurious claims of second hand smoke are a problem outside on an open walkway. Sure people tossing their butts on the walkway is just nasty and bad manners, but the solution is just fine people for littering, and supply trash cans for the trash.
But no, Joan wants LESS freedom, ALWAYS! And of course notice how Joan just assumes that somebody legally carrying a gun is going to present a danger…or that the criminals who are KNOWN to be violent are really going to give a flying fuck about any laws.
We’re winning, and its because we’re dedicated and rational, and their side is splintered and insane!
