*headdesk. okay...lets look at the monkeys laugh and wave as they fling shit at us from the other side of the glass....
"Furthermore, there seems to be no talk about high powered rifles. What
gun nuts don't want you to know is many target and hunting rifles are
chambered in the same round (.223/5.56mm) that Lanza's assault weapon
No shit? really? well golly gee beaver! I'm really glad you told me this...I didn't know...*snort of derision* No really sporky? it's what the gun owners have been TELLING you for years. It's not like it's a big secret you idiot.
"Even more guns are chambered for more powerful rounds, like the
.30-06 or (my personal "favorite") 7.62x54R. Even a .22, the smallest
round manufactured on a large scale, can kill easily. In fact, some say
the .22 kills more people than any other round out there."
You have a real talent for stating the blindingly obvious Sporky, none of this is news. OTOH the other thing that isn't news is that you don't listen...your kind never do.
30-06 good big game hunting round. .22. good for target practice and just all around plinking fun.
"Again, I like that we're talking about assault weapons, machine guns,
and high capacity clips. But it only takes one bullet out of one gun to
kill a person. Remember the beltway sniper back in 2002? The one who
killed a dozen odd people? Even though he used a bushmaster assault
rifle, he only fired one round at a time before moving. He could have
used literally any rifle sold in the US for his attacks."
And now boys and girls we're going to get to the heart of the matter...
"The only way we can truly be safe and prevent further gun violence is to ban civilian ownership of ALL guns. That means EVERYTHING. No
pistols, no revolvers, no semiautomatic or automatic rifles. No bolt
action. No breaking actions or falling blocks. Nothing. This is the only
thing that we can possibly do to keep our children safe from both mass
murder and common street violence."
The bolding emphasis and caps in that first two sentences are mine. I did that because it's what I and others have been warning you about for YEARS! Decades even. These people don't want "reasonable gun control", which is an oxy moron. They want the complete elimination of the ownership of guns by civilians. Which leaves the citizens completely defenseless, to criminals [remember when you need a cop right this second... they are only MINUTES away] and our own government. These folks are under the delusion that taking guns out of the hands of citizens reduces crime. Newsflash...criminals don't obey the law. Yes criminals are sooo afraid of the law in Britain that 2 unarmed female officers were lured into an ambush in which they were shot and then finished with a GRENADE!
Yeah that gun control alleviating the violence problem really works...NOT.
"Unfortunately, right now we can't. The political will is there, but the
institutions are not. Honestly, this is a good thing. If we passed a law
tomorrow banning all firearms, we would have massive noncompliance.
What we need to do is establish the regulatory and informational
institutions first. This is how we do it:"
The political will is there? *falls on the floor and rolls around giggling like a 3yr old being tickled...*
Ooops...sorry . That wasn't very dignified was it? Oh my god that was funny. No you idiot...it's NOT. Why? because even most democrats know it would be political SUICIDE. They know they could then kiss all those cushy bennies they've become completely overly accustomed to would dry up in a New York minute; not to mention their jobs and munificent, and wholly unearned salaries..
"The very first thing we need is national registry. We need to know where
the guns are, and who has them. Canada has a national firearms
registry. We need to copy their model. We need a law demanding all
firearms be registered to a national database. We need to know who has
them and where they are. We need to make this as easy as possible for
gun owners. The federal government provides the money and technical
expertise, and the State police carry it out. Like a funded mandate.
Most firearms already have a serial number on them, so it would really
be a matter of taking the information already on the ATF form 4473 and
putting it in a national database. I think about 6 months should be
Ahhh...ye olde national registry...what we who study history know to be the prelude to a grab of all guns...which of course is the course this mental midget is suggesting.
"Along with this, make private sales illegal. When a firearm is
transferred, make it law that the registration must be updated. Again,
make it super easy to do. Perhaps over, the internet. Dealers can log in
by their FFLs and update the registration. Additionally, new guns are
to be registered by the manufacturer. The object here is to create a
clear paper trail from factory to distributor to dealer to owner. We
want to encourage as much voluntary compliance as possible."
Sporky thinks compliance would be voluntary? Oh how naive. Among a VERY small portion maybe. By and large though most gun owners will probably tell you to go fuck yourself with a razor wire dildo.
"Now we get down to it. The registration period has passed. Now we have
criminals without registered guns running around. Probably kooky types
that "lost" them on a boat or something. So remember those ATF form
4473s? Those record every firearm sale, going back twenty years. And
those have to be surrendered to the ATF on demand. So, we get those
logbooks, and cross reference the names and addresses with the new
national registry. Since most NRA types own two or (many) more guns, we
can get an idea of who properly registered their guns and who didn't.
For example, if we have a guy who purchased 6 guns over the course of 10
years, but only registered two of them, that raises a red flag."
Yes because anyone who wants to own more than one or two guns is a criminal and must be punished for doing absolutely nothing.
"Now, maybe he sold them or they got lost or something. But it gives us a
good target for investigation. A nice visit by the ATF or state police
to find out if he really does still have those guns would be certainly
warranted. It's certainly not perfect. People may have gotten guns from
parents or family, and not registered them. Perfect is the enemy of
pretty darn good, as they say. This exercise isn't so much to track down
every gun ever sold; the main idea would be to profile and investigate
people that may not have registered their guns. As an example, I'm not
so concerned with the guy who bought that bolt action Mauser a decade
ago and doesn't have anything registered to his name. It's a pretty good
possibility that he sold it, gave it away, or got rid of it somehow.
And even if he didn't, that guy is not who I'm concerned with. I'm
concerned that other guy who bought a half dozen assault weapons,
registered two hunting rifles, and belongs to the NRA/GOA. He's the guy
who warrants a raid."
Ahh see...that latter statement is going to get junior into lots of trouble because he obviously hasn't heard the news that since Sandy Hook...the NRA has been fielding about 8000 new memberships PER DAY. Why? because these folks can see the writing on the wall ,in blood as it were.
"So registration is the first step. Now that the vast majority are registered, WE CAN DO WHAT WE WILL. One good first step would be to
close the registry to new registrations. This would, in effect, prevent
new guns from being made or imported. This would put the murder machine
corporations out of business for good, and cut the money supply to the
NRA/GOA. As money dries up, the political capital needed for new
controls will be greatly reduced.
There are a few other things I would suggest. I would suggest an
immediate, national ban on concealed carry. A ban on internet sales of
guns and ammunition is a no brainer. Microstamping
would also be a very good thing. Even if the only thing it does is
drive up costs, it could still lead to crimes being solved. I'm willing
to try every advantage we can get.
A national Firearms Owner Identification Card might be good, but I'm
not sure if it's necessary if we have a national database. We should
also insist on comprehensive insurance and mandatory gun safes, subject
to random, spot checks by local and federal law enforcement."
None of this...not a single solitary WORD of it.....is legal under The U.S. or most STATE Constitutions, but hey...Sporky don't care as long as he has his right to free speech, to spew his abject stupidity. Sigh.......Sporky, Sporky, Sporky...without the 2nd amendment ie guns...there IS no rest of the Constitution, so you can just kiss your right to free speech goodbye. Ignorant little git.
"We must make guns expensive and unpopular, just like cigarettes. A
nationwide, antigun campaign paid for by a per gun yearly tax paid by
owners, dealers, and manufacturers would work well in this regard. We
should also segway into an anti-hunting campaign, like those in the UK.
By making hunting expensive and unpopular, we can make the transition to
a gun free society much less of a headache for us."
Yeah like THAT worked. It created a HUGE black market in cigarettes you pustulant little pissant. By the way Sporky...most people who own guns..OBJECT to new taxes...so I doubt they are gonna sit still for a yearly penalty tax to be paid by them because they choose to exercise their god given, Constitutionally protected, right to bear arms. And if you think your "gun free utopia" is going to be., welllll...utopic...then you are going to be sadly mistaken little worm.
I know this seems harsh, but this is the only way we can be truly
safe. I don't want my kids being shot at by a deranged NRA member. I'm
sure you don't either. So lets stop looking for short term solutions and
start looking long term. Registration is the first step.
Tell Pres. Obama and democrats in congress to demand mandatory,
comprehensive gun registration. It's the only way we can ban guns with
Harsh he calls it. I'd say it leads to the complete destruction of our nation, but hey! What do I know..I'm just a guy who studied and understood more history, in a relatively short period, than these people suggesting this stupidity have ever, or will ever study in their entire lives.
Don't you just love the jabs at the NRA like it's an EVIL organization bent on domination? If I suggested the same thing of say...a gay rights groups...the screams of indignity would blow your ears off. Plus, I'd be willing to bet so would the calls of "gay hater" and inevitably, almost assuredly so would the death threats. Look at the the comment sections of facebook pages, news websites, blogs and twitter after the Sandy Hook Tragedy...the calls for death to all guns owners, "maybe we should kill all the NRA members" etc etc ad nauseum...flowed across the internet in a tidal wave of abject stupidity, and blind, festering hatred. And everyone saying that was all, ALL liberals. You know those people who supposedly hate racism but are the first to call anyone who disagrees with them racist? You know...these people who are supposedly so tolerant and welcoming of discussion, but the minute you interject facts they call names, delete posts and block accounts? You know...these supposedly peaceful *snort* people...who are always the first to call for the death of the opposing side, of having the GOVERNMENT disarm everyone by force and killing us, the gun owners, the 2nd amendment supporters, the believers in the Constitution and limited government? The irony and hypocrisy is staggering ain't it boys and girls?
Oooops almost forgot...here's the link to the article. Notice I didn't even bother with the first paragraph of it.
