I see a lot of this from the Anti-Freedom types:
Alcade- please don’t keep answering that question. It is a trick question designed to ‘get me” so I will not be answering it. It is impossible to answer anyway which is why you asked it. I don’t know why you want an answer to such an esoteric question.
Now I’m not picking on Joan Peterson, as her behavior is part of ALL the gun control activists. Most simply don’t allow comments, or questions on their blogs, and certainly make all attempts to avoid opposition in public. Joan, to her credit is the best of her treacherous ilk, as she does allow SOME comments, and occasionally will make statements that are designed to sound like she’s answering questions.
As you’ve seen from countless posts here they are abject liars. To them the truth is the enemy, so they must do everything in their power to obscure the truth (this is why even tho Joan allows comments, about 60% never see the light of day)
The question asked that invoked the above quote? “At what point would you say “Yes, your rights are being infringed.”? ” That’s it. That’s a simple question, and she calls it a trick?? Other “Trick Questions”
“What is the functional difference between an ‘Assault Weapon’ and its ban-compliant variant?”
“Why is the line drawn at 10 rounds?” See also 18″ shotgun barrels, or 16″ rifle barrels, see also the Numbers Game
“What is ‘Armor Piercing Ammunition?”
“Can you recommend a firearms safety class for me or my friends?”
and here’s a big one that is an ideal litmus test for an anti-rights goon. They will ALL Balk at this one, 100%.
“What type of gun or guns do you think are OK for Americans to own and won’t need further restriction?”
They hate all guns, and any person who isn’t opposed to owning guns. They know the time for their Utopia is not yet here, so they must start small…but there isn’t a gun they won’t ban. Not your Mossberg 500 Duck gun, not your Winchester M70 Deer rifle, not your Antique S&W top-break revolver, not the M1911 that your Great Grandfather carried in the Trenches of France and brought home to pass down to his heirs, not the replica Brown Bess Flint-lock you use in war renactments, not your .22 Olympic biathlon rifle.
They hate all guns, but they know they can’t say that. So asking them questions of the sort is a trap.
I’ll end with this great quote from Robb
Funny as that is, we don’t see that. I don’t see many posts, opinion pieces, or articles that start off with “I’m a gun banner but…”, do you? I think the reason is because gun owners know they’re right and don’t need to hide behind the identity of someone else to try to con others into believing them. The truth tends to be self evident and we do not need to appeal to authority to make it so.
Gun banners? They do. They know their brand stinks, so they coopt an identity in order to peddle their wares, hoping that being sold lies by a ‘gun owner’ is more palatable to people.
Its true, gun banners don’t even want to be CALLED gun banners…even when they’re banning guns! Seriously, try calling Joan Peterson a “Gun Banner” after she states a need to ban “Assault Weapons” or “Military Style Weapons”. No she’s not a gun banner, she just wants to ban guns.
