Random Shots for Monday, 23 October 2017

Today in history

    Set a date and time, then promote it.

    Last time I checked, open carry of both long guns and sidearms is still legal inside and around the Roundhouse.

  2. Posted to Facebook

    Are there similar articles for journalists covering “knife violence” (stabbings and slashings), “blunt-object violence,” (assault and battery using baseball bats, clubs, axe handles, lengths of pipe or rebar), “automotive violence” (deliberate hit and run incidents) and “bare-handed violence” (unarmed assault and battery) ?

  3. Posted to Facebook

    How many suicides, deaths due to neglgence or justifiable homicide are lumped into the category of “gun violence” ?

    Claudia Anderson — name me a victim disarmament “gun control” proposal that will actually perform its stated function of deterring violent crime.

    Here’s a screenshot from the CDC site — “gun violence” doesn’t even make the list.

    “Universal” background checks (and a 15-day waiting period) are already the law in KKKalifornia, yet Los Angeles has some of the highest rates of violent crime per 100,000 residents in the nation. That’s been the case for over 20 years now.

    “Back that up by making possession of a gun that you didn’t get a background check for a felony.”

    That would make me a felon several times over, for simple possession of inanimate objects. NO THANKS.

    No, I’m not confused at all.

    I’m simply unwilling to surrender liberty and property so that you can have your momentary warm fuzzy that you “got something done” and “made a difference.”

    For me to “compromise,” I would have to get something back that *I* want. Vague, unenforceable “promises” that “this will make a difference” don’t cut it. Nor do the lies that “no one wants to take your guns.”

    I guess I’ll have to settle for you and Bobby likening me to a heartless asshole or mental defective, then.

  9. Posted to Facebook

    What I did was pointed out that your proposed victim disarmament statutes haven’t stopped “gun violence” in any meaningful way in the past, then I asked why should I expect the same sorts of measures to work THIS TIME, because you have such “good intentions” THIS TIME?
