You Think So Ladd?

I don’t think Ladd thought this through. I don’t actually think Ladd THINKS.

In many states it’s now easier to buy a gun than to vote. Our Founders would be disgusted.

Well given that the Founders wrote a LOT of stuff on who was allowed to vote, Namely it was White Male property owners. All the later Amendments were written long after the framers of the Constitution were dead and buried.

Further Most of the Modern Gun Control laws were born in the Jim Crow South when Native Americans and Blacks were now considered people, and therefore had the right to keep and bear arms. And an armed Black Man doesn’t take kindly to being called a “Nigger”, and he can act on it! BTW there are many who believe that the US Civil War was overall an abomination in the eyes of the Original Framers who believed in a weak Federal government and strong State government.

The first Federal gun control law was the abomination the NFA in 1934. So really until then any people of any age could simply buy whatever guns and ammo they wanted to. Further they could carry those guns, and there was no such thing as a “Gun Free Zone”. And many of these people were PROHIBITED from voting.

Sounds the other way to me Ladd. The fact that it can be SO easy to vote, further there are no longer exemptions for conflict of interest (Property ownership meant you payed taxes and had commitment to the land), yet all the permits and paperwork and background checks, as well as restrictions on WHO can own guns, and WHAT guns can be owned. I don’t think the framers would take kindly to that.

But you weren’t really thinking, when you said that, were you?

**UPDATE** James O’Keef Shows how easy it is to Cheat the vote

Consider this, Ladd??

  1. Maybe this time around he has a point. With the choice being between a shit salad and a crap sandwich, no matter which you choose, you are still eating poop. I am going to find it incredibly hard to vote this year.

    I guess this applies to every election though. Neither of the two parties represent my views any longer.

      Honestly this election is making me ANGRY! I’m not following the polls, or the primaries, or the debates. I don’t care, and I dislike them all.

      I want to watch it burn, so I’m voting for chaos because you don’t want this crap to continue.

      Plus I was excited that I actually had a legitimate reason to vote for Ron Paul…and it felt REALLY good. Now I have a legitimate reason to vote 3rd party and I’m excited about that.

      I’m also excited to see Scott Brown lose for being a RINO, and maybe some of the GOOD Republicans we have here in Mass (there aren’t many, but they exist) will maybe get the message.

    As I replied to the tweet, I don’t recall being offered to a gun to buy at the Department of Motor Vehicles. In addition, my local library doesn’t offer the paperwork to get a carry license. Yup, it’s so hard to vote and so easy to get a gun.

  3. Scott says:

    I feel bad for you guys in the North East…I had to wait a few days to get my voter card, but when I bought my first gun I was in and out of the store in 40 minutes with the pistol and 500 rounds.

    That being said, I do believe that tweet is off base. Even a lefty like me knows that you can generally make more change by voting in local elections than you can with a gun. Because of that it SHOULD be harder to vote. I want informed people going to the poles. You should never vote for someone just because they look like you or are the same faith…..

    I also like how the article linked from the tweet basically equates open carry with violent political speech. That is rich…..Sure its speech but I don’t see it as violent. Its like burning an effigy (something my people did plenty of when Bush was in office), marching on Wall Street or counter protesting the crazies from Westboro Baptist Church. Thats the joy of the First Amendment. Speech can be a lot of different things and you don’t have to like all of it, but that is too bad.

    We have open carry in Virginia. I admit I was a little intimidated the first time I saw it. But I had to respect the guy for taking a stand and using his Freedom of Speech.

    Anyway sorry this rambled and may have been off topic for a bit as well!

    I assume that he is ignoring the fact that ID is required for any purchase of a gun (from an FFL), while ID is not required for all voters in the United States.

    (Of course, ID is not necessarily required for face-to-face, non-FFL transactions…but that lines up with voting in some areas.)

    • Weerd Beard says:

      ID isn’t NECESSARY for FTF transfers, but if you don’t check an ID and sell a gun out of state you’re looking at Federal Felony Charges, same with if you sell to a minor.

      There’s a little wiggle room if you accidentally sell to a prohibited person, but if that was the case I’d be sweating hard and calling a lawyer.

      All these “Gunshow Loophole” goons never seem to mention the world of shit a seller can get themselves in if they sell to the wrong person. Of course its intentional because the facts are their sworn enemy!

    Scott: you make some good points! It’s un-American to keep people from the polls (ref. the KKK, and the New Black Panthers — strange bedfellows indeed). Then again, I’m glad that registration isn’t automatic. People who want to vote need to get up and DO something. It’s not hard, but it requires a deliberate act. The right to vote is valuable, and thus shouldn’t be given away.

    Re WB’s original thought — I’m reminded of the point made on a while back, that there are places where you need one form of ID to buy a gun, but two IDs to pay for it by check. (I don’t actually know if this is true, come to think of it.) And in Massachusetts, voting requires no ID at all. I wonder what Ladd would think of that?

  6. 45er says:

    Really? Funny thing, DOJ is pushing back because Texas wants to have ID for someone to vote. I challenge Ladd to find a state that doesn’t require an ID to exercise that right. I guess they don’t want dead people buying guns, after all. Voting is ok for the deceased, I guess.

    I would dearly love to see voting made more difficult … an ID should be required, at the very least.

    Bad votes had killed a 120 million people last century.
