Proof Gun Control Doesn’t Work

“If gun control worked, Chicago would look like Mayberry, not Thunderdome”  Cam Edwards as quoted in the current issue of Guns and Ammo Magazine.

How true.  The gun control fanatics keep missing out on the basic, simple facts of “gun control”.  Criminals, including those bent on massive acts of violence don’t give a darn about gun control laws.  That is why universal backgrpound checks are not the answer, unless ALL mental history databases and ALL criminal databases were made available…….and even then would they be effective?

Only law abiding citizens would fill out the necessary paperwork for NICS checks, just as they do now.  The criminals aren’t going to take the time or pre-announce their intentions.

Think about it.  Can you imagine an individual, bent on committing an act of mass violence, walking into a gun shop and filling out the paperwork to legally purchase a firearm?  Does that make sense?  These ridiculous feel good laws are just that, feel good and ridiculous and non-productive.

That’s like the posting of “no guns allowed signs”.  That’s an open invitation to have a criminal do something on the premises.  That’s why most acts of mass violence were committed in those types of zones.  That’s an open invitation……………almost like leaving your car running in a parking lot, with the keys in the ignition and the doors unlocked.

Stereotyping and a Lack of Common Sense

Sometimes the lack of common sense from some people is just unreal.  And when that comes from supposed “leaders” (like Dianne Feinstein, Charles Schimer, Michael Bloomberg) one must wonder what has happened.

Sometimes I think that this lack of common sense is a result of folks suffering from CraRec’s syndrome (more on that later).

Anyway, much has been posted all over this country about how some people just don’t understand that the AR-15 is NOT an assault weapon.  Military style?  Yes.  It looks like one.  Does it function like one? No.  Just because a firearm has a pistol grip, or a foregrip, does not mean that it is a rapid fire military assault weapon.

Sen. Cruz of Texas tried pointing that out at a recent hearing.  He showed a picture of a firearm that according to Ms Feinstein would be “acceptable”.  He then held up a foregrip next to the picture.  According to Ms Feinstein that would then make it an assault weapon.  Eventhough the firing capability of the firearm is not changed.

Those folks that keep screaming “we need to ban automatic weapons” are not very bright, since automatic weapons have been banned for civilians since 1934.  The hoops that an individual needs to go through to get one virtually insures that they will reside in collections and not be out on the street.

What Feinstein and her followers are doing is mistaking appearance for functionality.  They are judging a book by its cover, creating a stereotype just based on looks.

That’s like saying just because somebody wears baggy shorts, and wears their hat funny they are gangsters, or that because a woman dresses in a provocative manner that she is a prostitute, or because a person has bunches of tattoos that they are criminals, or because a car only seats two, is low to the ground, and has a “cool” design to it that it is a sports car.

It’s also ironic that the Department of Homeland Security has recently put out a bid for 7,000 “personal defense weapons” yet their specs call for them to have a feature known as “selective fire”.  That is the ability for the firearm to fire multiple times with a single trigger pull.  Now those are assault weapons.  The AR-15 that Feinstein wants banned and other similar items, only fire once with each pull of the trigger.

Add to all this the posting of gun free zone signs.  Amazing isn’t it?  Because the recent tragedies that has people upset occurred in gun free zones.  Huh?  Easy to explain.  A person bent on creating a tragedy doesn’t care about signs, and they know they will not be challenged in venues that have them posted.  Duhhhhhhhhhh…………Didn’t the shooter in Auriora Colorado drive past a group of theaters that did not have those signs to get to one that did?

Regardless of appearance, a semi-automatic still requires the trigger to be pulled each time to be fired, one round at a time.  It is not an assault weapon, eventhough some misguided fools label it as such.  They even use the term “military style”.  Style, appearance, is one thing.  Functionality is something else.

What is CraRec’s syndrome mentioned earlier?  That is a short form for Cranial Rectal Inversion…………that’s when one’s cranium is tightly lodged in one’s rectal passage.

Connecticut TV Station Gets it Right

Recently Channel 8 in New Haven, Connecticut WTNH ran a special report about what is and isn’t an assault rifle.

They even went into how most folks don’t even know what the AR in AR-15 stands for.

Please read the story and watch the video.  Thank you WTNH for being honest about this.
