Republican pounces!

From his cold, dead hands.

Lindsey Graham Politely Explains to Idiot Reporters Why He needs an AR-15
Sen. Lindsey Graham knocked down the idea of banning semi-automatic weapons nearly identical to those used by soldiers on the off chance a hurricane slams into his South Carolina town.

“Here’s a scenario that I think is real: There’s a hurricane, a natural disaster, no power, no cops, no anything,” the Republican lawmaker told reporters aboard Air Force One.

A reporter asked if he meant looters.

“Yeah, people, they’re not going to come to the AR-15 home,” Graham responded. “Well, I think if you show up on the porch with an AR-15, they’ll probably go down the street.”

Good on Lindsey for speaking up and all, but it was a futile effort; not one mind will be changed, not one gun-grabbing shitlib will see the simple logic and pause for a moment’s reconsideration. There’s only one answer to give them, it should be delivered like a good swift kick right square in the teeth, and Stephen Kruiser knows what it is.

Although he can occasionally be a firebrand, Graham is still a United States senator and was flying with the president on Air Force One when asked about this. He remained very decorous and didn’t offer the answer that a regular, law-abiding gun owner might.

I sleep with a loaded Beretta on my nightstand and was once asked why.

“Because I (expletive deleted) want to.”

That’s really the only answer anyone needs in response to being asked why he or she is doing something perfectly legal that isn’t harming anyone else.

Fuckin’ A right, buddy.

Have I ever had to use a gun for self-defense? Thankfully, no. And I hope I never have to.

I am not, however, obligated to explain to anyone why I would prefer not to be killed.

You damned sure ain’t at that. Let Lefty huff and puff and beat and blow and weep and moan to his little heart’s content. Let him issue his demands and threats and be damned. More and more of us have reached the conclusion that we’ve conceded way too much ground already, and no matter how much we give it will never be enough. You don’t get another inch, gun-grabbers. Not just no, but HELL NO, with a big fat “fuck you” on top for garnish. That’s it—fini, omega, het-ay nde-ay. Come and fucking take them, you miserable worms. Do it, if you dare. Better bring help.

There’s another peril in play with this one, though, and it’s perched right on Trump’s lap.

Then there are the “red flag laws,” which is the left’s new approach to confiscating guns. These laws are unconstitutional three ways to Sunday, violating three of the rights within the Bill of Rights. These laws usurp the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms, the Fourth Amendment’s protection from unreasonable searches and seizures, and the Sixth Amendment’s right of the accused to a speedy and public trial.

My home state of Colorado passed such a law this past April, one of the consequences of voters giving Democrats control of the executive and legislative branches of a state. Other states have similar laws and there is now a push for a national red flag law. If President Trump is smart, he will see the color red before signing such a law, if it ever even makes it to his desk, as signing such a law may be a large red stop sign in his quest for a second term as president.

Red flag laws will have the effect of disarming those best able to stop a shooter. But that’s not the real goal of these laws. Instead it’s a new approach to thwarting the Second Amendment. President Trump is hopefully thinking long and hard about signing on to such measures, as this has the potential to be his “read my lips, no new taxes” moment.

Hopefully, he’s not thinking about it at all. If there’s any single unforced error almost certain to reverse Trump’s currently solid re-election odds, this is the one. As staunch a Trump supporter as I am and always have been, a needless cave to the Left on this would drive even me to the sidelines—me, and a whole hell of a lot of others too. No, I wasn’t happy about the noises he made in the aftermath of last week’s shootings. That said, I am also fully cognizant of Vox Day’s Two-Day caution: on any seemingly worrisome Trump statement, wait at least two days to see what actually transpires before deciding that all is lost.

Happily, that has proven to be sage advice time after time. Tossing a rhetorical hook out as bait to misdirect Democrat-Socialists into a false bargaining position based on anticipation of concessions he has no intention of making has been a useful enough ploy for Da Prez that I can’t quite see him abandoning it now. Nor do I think the record suggests that Trump is out of touch or naive enough to be unaware of how his most loyal supporters would react to a betrayal of that magnitude. Quite the opposite, actually; it would be completely out of character for the man to make such a boneheaded move.

But who knows, stranger things have happened. Only one thing is certain: should he falter this time, the cost of his blunder will be steep—not just for him personally, but for all of us.

Trump appeal update! Expanding the base. Note the final pic, which is what puts it into the “related” category for this post.

Shitlib has Teh Sadz update! Reassuring words of gun-grabber despair from the hoplophobic com-symps at the New Yorker. Naturally, it’s full of phony statistics, cooked polls, and outright fabrications, so I ain’t gonna recommend you read it all. But I can’t help but be encouraged to see that even these devious pissants aren’t holding out much hope.

Also, it is Trump we are dealing with, and he is notoriously averse to crossing rural and suburban gun owners, who make up a key part of his base. Even if the polls currently show overwhelming support for expanded background checks and other measures, Trump will be sensitive to a possible backlash, especially if the opposition includes some of his right-wing media outriders, such as Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.

Furthermore, there is a possibility that Trump will try to tie any gun-control measures he endorses to immigration-law changes that Democrats oppose, such as lengthening the period for which asylum-seeking families can be detained after crossing the border. In a tweet on Monday, Trump suggested “marrying” immigration and gun control. On Thursday, the Times reported that he has toldsome advisers that he “would like a political concession in exchange” for acting on gun control. If he insists on this linkage, the chances of getting any legislation passed are slim.

From your lips to God’s ears, asswipe.

  1. What are the sissies going to require that I give up next, that 3rd jar of peanut butter in the larder? WTF is wrong with these people? They get to run around and declare what other people are “allowed” to possess? They can just FOAD right now, period. Nobody, not Trump or anyone else, gets to do that. Ever.

    I will own what I want and as far as I’m concerned anybody that thinks they have any say about it is a mental defect with way too much time on his hands. Perhaps Trump can create some sort of enforced work program for these people, so that at the end of a hard working day they will be too dam tired to bother other people.

  2. Whoah….Graham is FAR from being the Captain John Parker of the 21st Century. Lypsey Graham is the SAME scoundrel, fedgov senator working to introduce Red Flag laws into fedgov law.. Red Flag laws that negate the 1st, 2nd, 4th & 5th Amendments to the USC ! Graham can claim “no banning” of AR-malite style rifles all he wants. He is a liar. His Red Flag law will do the “banning” of firearms by proxy.

    Lypsey Graham AND those voters who have kept this seditious low-life in office term after term, are no friends of the Constitution, Freedom and Traditional/Heritage, American citizens !

  3. “Why does [anyone] need an Ar-15?” they plaintively cry.

    Well, I’ve had firearms pointed at me (BIG mistake), I’ve used the M-16 (A-1 and A-2, so that dates me) in military service, and on occasion I’ve employed firearms in my personal civilian life (including lawful concealed carry)…that, thankfully I haven’t had to fire. I can assure people that Sen. Graham’s observation is correct. Firearms can be very effective even without pulling the trigger, particularly a big scary black rifle like the AR-15. No, they aren’t magic, you can’t just wave them around and unrealistically expect that people will do what you tell them to do…but demonstrating your willingness to use them has always proven remarkably effective, in my personal experience. My family comes first, and although I’m never looking for trouble, I know how to stop trouble, and it sure isn’t by waving a cell phone and threatening to call 9-1-1 or protesting that the offender isn’t allowed to behave so badly within the “gun-free zone”.
