Some Irony For Your

So I found this article via Joan:

What country fetishizes, lionizes, valorizes, idolizes, and sacralizes guns as much as does our United States? OK, possibly Mozambique–the only country with an AK47 on its flag, but really, it’s long past time to end this obsessive “My Precious” attachment of Americans to instruments of death.

…The only logical path, given the clearly decided role of the Second Amendment, is to repeal it. American people are tired of mass shootings and police shootings and family fued shootings and sibling shootings and accidental toddler shootings and teen suicide by gun (highly popular).We are exhausted by the proliferation of death, of threats, of bloodshed, and by the NRA/gun industry moral garbage spewing forth every time someone challenges the ubiquity of guns.

Repeal the Stupid Second Amendment. Surround it, grab it, bring it in the back room, pull down the shades, and end it. OK, petition for it, get it on the ballot, and get it done by enough of the US populace, by enough people in enough states, to get it consigned to the dustbin of history. Merry Christmas, people. Peace.

Now of course there is SOME irony that Ms. “Nobody wants to take your guns away” is pushing this frothy rage-filled crap, but the JUICY irony is the author Bio:

Tom H. Hastings is PeaceVoice Director and teaches in the Conflict Resolution program at Portland State University in Oregon.

Makes you want to take his class, huh?

    Bring it, Joan. btw, the right to self defense, does not come from any piece of paper.

    Stop playing with fire.

    They are welcome to try.

    Of course, repealing it does nothing but remove the recognition of the government of the right… does not remove the right.

    Or does she think repealing the 13th would make it okay to enslave people?

    Furthermore, there is an argument to be made that repealing any of the Bill of Rights makes the Constitution null and void.

    Allen, Cargosquid, yup, they owe it to their followers to give repeal a fair shot. I’d like to see Prof. Hastings himself leading a well-funded national repeal effort that includes confiscation of existing firearms. (IOW-I suspect a Hastings-led effort would choke on its own purple rhetoric really fast.)

    ” . . . [F]etishizes, lionizes, valorizes, idolizes, sacralizes guns . . .”. Really?
