So I’ve been spending the better part of the day baby-wrangling, and I realized I’ve fallen a bit behind looking at the images of the antis from the various (you know who) anti-freedom lobbyist pintrest pages.
First up is chock-full of anti-freedom foolishness:
OK Right off the bat, there is no citation of the “1 in 30 Would Be gun buyers on Armslist”, and I couldn’t find what they were talking about with a very quick Google search. If you’ve seen this citation please post it in the comments. I don’t see what they’re talking about, or even what this really means. I’m guessing its pure made-up nonsense, or “Criminal History” is defined as “Whatever we say it is”. Still the kicker is the comparison to the “Terror Watch List”. I talk about the fallacy of the watch list here extensivly, but the take away is that the past terror attacks in America after the inception of the “Watch List” were done by active terrorists NOT on the list, and the people who ARE on the list are NOT terrorists, or even a danger to anybody. So yeah, you could FILL that 747 with “Terrorists” as defined by the arbitrary and erroneous “Watch List”, and that jet would take off from the airport, and arrive on its destination without even a foolish “Drunken Disturbance” while en route.
Its just a foolish fear-mongering tactic that actually amounts to nothing but the loss of freedom to people who have done NOTHING and will do NOTHING. Hey but cling to that stupidity antis!
Next up is some prime psychological projection:
Yeah, the NRA is editing the constitution to push their agenda. So says the people who talk about “Collective” despite all 9 Supreme Court Justices, even the anti-rights “Progressive” ones citing that there is no such thing.
Further reading the dissent argument for Heller vs. DC you see the “Progressives” agreeing that the 2nd Amendment protects the right of the individual people of the United States to keep and bear arms…just they want to decide on arbitrary and illogical terms what arms can be kept, and where they can be carried.
Pure projection, as the “Progressives” are the ones who claim the Constitution is a “Living Document” subject to whatever arbitrary whim that strikes them at that moment, even when such whims are by nature unconstitutional per the drafting of the Bill of Rights.
