So many times, the things we thought could never happen did. If gun advocates continue to respond to these tragedies with the answer, “do nothing,” then I would not be surprised if in a very short time, guns are seen differently than they are today, and making them all illegal becomes a possibility. The NRA is strong, but even the NRA can not spin these massacres and buy-off enough politicians, when we’re dealing with an endless pile of dead children.
People think guns will never be taken away. But there is a tipping point and I think we’ve reached it. The time for half measures is long gone. And now guns will be banned.
Making heroin and meth illegal hasn’t worked, why would it work with guns?
That feels like a silly talking point. Are guns addictive? Can high-speed, high capacity assault rifles be grown in backyards and fields like drugs? With no high level machining, manufacturing knowledge, and capital?
Comparing guns and drugs doesn’t work. It seems like this kind of “logic” is why gun owners have lost the high ground. We know that guns can be eradicated, because it’s been done before. Many countries have drastically reduced the amount of guns in the possession of both citizens and criminals, bringing death rates from gun violence to almost nothing.
“Many”? Name three, idiot. Hell, name one, for that matter.
No reason to bother fisking this tripe point-by-point, of course. She’s full of shit, we know she’s full of shit, and it ain’t like she or any of her kind will listen to a single factual, statistical, logical, or reasonable word refuting her spurious, tired, dishonest twaddle. We’ve done so countless times already, and still they go on. The facts don’t dissaude them. The Constitution certainly doesn’t. Any notion of an inborn human right to effective means of self-defense doesn’t; resistance to tyranny damned sure doesn’t, tyranny being their ultimate goal—a feature for them, not a bug.
So at this point, there’s nothing more to discuss, and no reason whatever to waste more time and effort trying. All’s any of us can do is gird our loins, stiffen our resolve, load our mags…and wait.
As WRSA says: These people are your neighbors. They are all around you—around your corner, down your block, across your street. And sooner or later, they will come.
