FEELings: ‘We’re all gonna die’ – the undetectable, untraceable 3D printed guns edition

FEELings Were all gonna die the undetectable untraceable 3D printed guns edition

Concise, pithy responses to crush frequently parroted Leftist talking points and propaganda, FEELings – Frequently Encountered Emotional Lies.

The Seattle Times reported that a Federal judge in Seattle will rule on the publishing of the ‘Blueprints’ for 3D Printable guns by Monday. So this is an opportune time to revisit the issue with some responses to the FEELings from the Left.

These will be short rejoinders to the Frequently Encountered Emotional Lies of the Left in their ongoing hysterical assaults on Liberty. In this case its on the ‘we’re all gonna die’  hysteria over the 3D Printed, Undetectable untraceable guns.

1. Why is this suddenly a crisis of epic proportions?

Why is that the case with anything the Left decrees is a ‘serious crisis’? What better way to enact new laws clamping down on liberty than by the ‘serious crisis’?

It means we have to ‘Do Something NOW!’  Without thinking about its long-term implications.

Make no mistake, this is an attack on the freedom of speech and the 1st amendment. The files being shared are merely computer code used to make objects on 3D printers. This is a question of the government stopping what someone can say or publish, not on the subject being discussed.

2. Untraceable! Undetectable! Lions, Tigers and Bears! Oh my!

As is their usual modus operandi, those opposed to Liberty on the Left will take any opportunity to whip up hysteria in trying to stampede the people into giving up more of their freedom. This is no different, albeit with a few false buzzwords thrown into the mix to dial the chaos up to eleven:

Untraceable plastic weapons will spawn the next terrifying wave of gun violence

But that doesn’t compare to this over the top comment:

mom@pezmbc Thank you GOP..we’re all gonna die. Like you don’t have enough blood on your hands?#StopDownloadableGuns

3. Untraceable [Read: Cannot be controlled by Leftists]

Leftists love propaganda just as much as their control fantasies, especially when they are fed by their rampant Hoplophobia. This talking point implies that guns registration, instantly traceable through a Federal system. It would seem that people don’t care about the freedom they’ve already thought was lost – which is why the Left propagates this propaganda when it can.

Too bad for them that national gun registration has been illegal for decades.
So in effect, guns are untraceable by Federal Law. But of course, this doesn’t stop the left from obsessing over attaining the precursors to their final solution of gun confiscation beginning with Intergalactic Background Checks.

One common retort on this is that they wouldn’t be able to confiscate guns. Yes, that is the case right now, they don’t know who has what. However, Intergalactic Background Checks will set the unconstitutional precedent of government control of private property leading to gun registration. After that it’s just a simple matter of telling the people to turn them in for destruction.

4. But these are Undetectable Guns!

No, grasshopper, they are not. The laws of physics and the basic properties of materials make this practically impossible. The fact is, the same material properties of metals that make them suitable for the impact stresses and pressures of high yield chemical reactions also make them detectable. Not to mention that to be worth-while ammunition would also have to be undetectable.

5. There are laws on undetectable guns, but these are superseded by the laws of physics.

Sometimes one must marvel at the almost childlike naiveté of politicians, thinking that merely passing a ‘law’ will ‘solve’ a problem like this when it is a higher law that does the trick. Does anyone have the misguided idea that if there were an undetectable material that could be used to produce a weapon that the criminals wouldn’t already be using it?

6. These rulings will stop these computer files from being published saving the planet from the scourge of 3D printed guns.

This case is similar to the  closing one door after a stampede has passed through the rest of the barn. One site was stopped, but others sites such as CodeIsFreeSpeech.com are up and running. Consequently the Plans for 3D-printed guns exploded across the internet amid court battle to repress them as reported by the Washington Times. Despite efforts by Facebook, and Amazon to censor their site as reported by the Washington Free Beacon that one site has logged 1.4 million over requests the past three weeks.

7. Congress must act urgently to stop these Craft-made ‘Ghost Guns’.

It is a sad fact of our times that sitting politicians are lacking in even the basic knowledge on the subject on which they pontificate. People have been able to produce craft made ‘Ghost Guns’ throughout the long history of firearms. Reports have it that even in the “Gun-Free” environs of the UK the discovery of a ‘Large-scale illegal gun factory’ recently, with this pithy little statement in the article:

A source told The Telegraph no 3D laser printers were found in the industrial unit, but rather decades-old metalworks machinery typically associated with pre-21st century classrooms.

8. ‘Ghost guns’ are illegal.

Actually, it is perfectly legal for someone to make their own firearms as long as they don’t plan on selling it, as has been the case since the founding of the country.

In the vernacular of the ATF:

What is ATF doing in regards to people making their own firearms?
https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/what-atf-doing-regards-people-making-their-own-firearms
An individual may generally make a firearm for personal use. However, individuals engaged in the business of manufacturing firearms for sale or distribution must be licensed by ATF. Additionally, there are certain restrictions on the making of firearms subject to the National Firearms Act.

9. Terrorists or Criminals can now print 3D print guns!

So, let’s see – Terrorists or criminals could buy and set up a $100,000 machine that takes some expertise and time OR they could just smuggle in weapons over the border that the Left insists should stay open.

So, let’s ponder this intractable conundrum of which option they will select. The choice that sees them easily obtain whatever tried and true firearms, they want or the one that requires a $100,000 machine and all manner of expertise. Can anyone make a guess on which option they will choose?

10. But shouldn’t we stop the dissemination of dangerous information that could be harmful?

Who decides what is dangerous or harmful? Firearms are a very mature technology, having been around for a few hundred years, the knowledge is out there and it would impossible to restrict it at this point.

The fact is that while some in the government are condemning the release of this information, in other parts of the Constitution mandates the government publish this information – through the patent office:

Class 42 FIREARMS
https://www.uspto.gov/web/patents/classification/uspc042/sched042.htm

Class 89 ORDNANCE
https://www.uspto.gov/web/patents/classification/uspc089/sched089.htm

Still further, there have instruction manuals for making your own guns on the Internet for years now, and somehow we’ve all been able to survive.

The Takeaway.

The key Fact of this debate is that this is an issue of the First amendment and the right of free speech, more specifically prior restraint. That is the key fact that everyone needs to keep in mind above all else.

Some of the Liberty grabber Left had even gone so far as to postulate that it should be illegal to even possess 3D-Printed Gun Designs. Presumably the United States Patent Office will be exempt from such Laws. This is how far the sheer hysteria has gone over this issue, not only are people demanding the suppression of the free-speech and the first amendment, but they want to criminalize the possession of the designs for certain technologies.

It should go without saying that criminals and terrorists are going to violate the law, which should not be justification for the suppression of our Liberty, ever.

Top 5 ‘Bottomless Pinocchios’ of the national socialist left

Top 5 Bottomless Pinocchios of the national socialist left

That perfect paragon of journalistic ‘objectivity’, the Washington Post, introduced a new rating for lies. We applied them to the left.

The Washington Post has developed a new rating system – the ‘Bottomless Pinocchio’ – for a false claim repeated over and over. This is somewhat ironic since the leftist media excels in the practice. While we will try to keep this to the more egregious and discrete lies of the left, a few notes on their other types of lies are in order.

The labeling and language lies of the left

Even the labels they apply to themselves aside from being socialist are falsehoods. These are people who work against the cause of liberty on a daily basis while pretending to be liberal. It’s a post-modernism community that has the false front of being ‘progressive’, that would prefer to use the judiciary to impose their socialist national agenda rather than democratic means.

Then there is the game of lying by language the left plays to excess. Time was, global cooling was the existential threat to woman and mankind, until it stopped getting cooler. Then global warming became the existential threat until it stopped getting warmer. Accordingly, they hit on the deception of working against it doing either, so no matter what happens, they can claim they are right because the climate has always changed. This also gave them a nice bonus in tarring any who opposes their control agenda as being a ‘climate change denier’ – even though no one actually denies the climate changes. Better yet, they have been able to shorten it up to the ultimate insult of labeling their opposition as ‘climate deniers’ as if people would actually deny reality itself.

These will be the top 5 ‘Bottomless Pinocchios’ of the left. These are lies that are recycled repeatedly by the left in their effort at distorting reality to the point where gun free zones actually keep people safe, no one is starting a conversation about gun confiscation and societal slavery can really work.

 Bottomless Pinocchio 5: People have a ‘right’ to health care

This is one of the left’s favourites in trying to reshape (or ‘reform’) reality. Like many other variations of the ‘people have a right to’ line, this stems from the concept of Coercive or Collective Rights, whereby people have the ‘right’ to force others to provide them with the vestiges of this ‘right’. These are contrasted with Natural Rights possessed by everyone, the right to self-preservation, the right to property, the right of freedom of expression.

Having a ‘right’ to health care, or ‘right’ to feel safe, or a ‘right’ to not be offended, generally entails that someone else has to provide for this ‘right’. In the case of healthcare, providing this ‘right’ would mean that medical professionals would be required to sacrifice their time and labour in this effort. Citizens would also be forced to contribute their property. There is a word for when people are forced to provide their time and effort to others. It’s called slavery.

In point of fact the phrase should really be people have a ‘right’ to enslave others. But the folks who pretend to support liberty can’t say that directly, hence they use the ‘right to’ lie.

Bottomless Pinocchio 4: Gun free zones work as advertised

This one is slightly different from the others in that even leftists know they will be laughed off the public stage if they said this out loud. Rather, they imply the idea with their policy agenda of incessantly working towards gun confiscation, supposedly rendering the entire world a global ‘gun-free’ zone such as the latest example in France.

Expanding what doesn’t work always seems to be a hallmark of the left. Never mind that something doesn’t function in one area, extend it elsewhere so it’ll work… somehow.

Anyone familiar with logic can easily see why these don’t work, since those bent on evil will tend to go where they will have little opposition. Unfortunately, as with the fact that there are only two genders, leftists don’t seem to be able to comprehend that which is bloody obvious. They seem to have the misguided idea that a rule or a sign will stop a mass murderer.

The facts bear this out given that most mass shootings take place in ‘gun-free’ zones. This has been the situation for almost 30 years.

The problem for the left is that they can’t actually admit to their absolute failure in this area. Were they to do this, it would mean an end to their whole gun confiscation agenda. Thus they perpetuate that it’s a myth that defensive gun uses exist or that a ‘good guy (or gal) with a gun’ will deter these tragedies. It means that they continue to put people at risk for the sake of their disarmament agenda, without the hint of guilt on their part.

Bottomless Pinocchio 3 : No one is talking about gun confiscation

Finding cases where leftists have demanded gun confiscation has become as easy as shooting fish in a barrel (pardon the pun Peta). The past few years have seen an increase in these demands from the left to the point that it’s occurred more than 70 times not counting excerpts, syndication and reprints. Repeating this lie enables leftists to keep the discussion to the next incremental step instead of their final solution to the liberty problem.

Still, the liberty grabber left persists in propagating this enormous lie. It does several things for them. It short circuits the negative effects of gun confiscation such as leaving the innocent defenseless against criminals and the government. It lulls some into a false sense of security as to the left’s long term goal for the cause of liberty.

This perennial lie is also necessary to get some to accept governmental overreach in controlling their personal property. They have used this same technique in getting people to register their guns accompanied by the solemn promise that they won’t use it to confiscate guns, after which their guns are confiscated.

Bottomless Pinocchio 2: Failed socialist experiments weren’t really socialist

It would seem this little ditty began when the socialist-left started trying to claim that a certain National Socialist German Workers’ Party wasn’t actually a National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The Left actually tried to reverse reality, making a party with a collectivist ideology of the left to one of an individualist ideology of the right. The problem for them is that those on the pro-liberty, conservative right, by definition favour lower taxes and limited government. Hardly something the Nazis were known for.

Leftists will often times try to deflect the facts of the matter given the very name of the party: ‘Nationalsozialistische deutsche Arbeiter-Partei’. But consider the words of the translator of Mein Kampf:

Finally, I would point out that the term Social Democracy may be misleading in English, as it has not a democratic connotation in our sense. It was the name given to the Socialist Party in Germany. And that Party was purely Marxist; but it adopted the name Social Democrat in order to appeal to the democratic sections of the German people.
James Murphy. Abbots Langley, February, 1939

Later on, they played this little game with virtually every other socialist regime. Miraculously enough, before these socialist regimes ran out of other people’s money the left labelled them as one of their own. Then in the blink of an eye, they would ping-pong from left to right almost overnight when they inevitably failed.

The problem for the left is that they have nothing on George Orwell. We’re supposed to simply ignore basic facts from history, beginning with the very words that socialists have used to describe themselves. These socialist regimes also followed collectivist precepts. But in an instant these facts are swept away, in favour of a new reality where Red is Blue and Blue is Red.

Bottomless Pinocchio 1: Socialism can actually work

This is a basic survival lie of the left. They cannot accede to the fact of 400 years of the failure of the ideas of their base ideology, so they must pretend it can work… somehow. Just as they can pretend to be liberal while working to tear down liberty, but that’s another subject.

Since their agenda of societal slavery has never worked, they have to deflect the argument with the aforementioned ‘socialism has never been tried before’ and ‘failed socialist experiments weren’t really socialist’ lies. Or pretending that non-socialist nations are really socialist.

The bottom line is that socialism can never work because it runs counter to basic human physiology. One will always see less of a behaviour that is negatively reinforced, while more will be seen with behaviour that is positively reinforced. The fundamental results of reward and punishment cannot be ignored, and yet this is what socialists have as the basis of their ideology.

Consider that the experiment of socialism has been conducted in situations around the world for over 400 years with the same result: failure. It should be obvious by now to most intelligent people that it cannot work, and yet the national socialist-left still persists in trying to turn that which is impossible into something that is possible, no matter who has to suffer and die.

The takeaway

In many ways the left should stay away from pronouncing judgement on falsehoods when they are so rife with them. Leftist lies keep them afloat in the sea of politics. We have shown that not only are they false, but they must be retold in order for the left to survive.

Dr Paul Lim tells how he went from atheist to Christian at Yale

Universities aren’t usually considered likely venues for people to turn to the Christian faith. Ivy League universities rife with atheist professors are even less likely than most to yield a conversions to the faith. If anything, they’re efforts are often directly focused on converting Christians into abandoning their faith.

Dr Paul Lim tells a different tail. His personal journey from South Korea to California, then Pennsylvania on to Yale, is an exception to the rule. His journey is not common, but then again who’s to say what sort of journey to embracing Jesus Christ can be considered common?

It’s not too long, clocking in at just over 48 minutes, and much better than your average network television hour. If you already believe, it may help you open the eyes of others. If you don’t believe, your eyes may be opened.

How likely is it that a single protein can form by chance

To really answers the question of whether life was created or came about by random chance, we need to take a mathematical look at things. It may be easier to form our opinions based on something we read in a junior high science book, but there really is more to it than the surface questions asked and answered by scientists and theologians alike.

For the faithful, it comes down to faith. For the scientific, it also comes down to faith. Whose faith is more likely to be correct?

Part of the answer can be found in this short video. Those who think there’s no faith associated with scientific theories clearly don’t understand the mathematics behind the science they claim to hold dear.
