Guns aren’t the problem

Guns arent the problem

The tragedy in California proves Liberty Control does not work, this is what we need to do to actually solve the problem.

We were told that Intergalactic background checks, gun registration requirements, gun confiscation laws, a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases and other odious restrictions on freedom would keep everyone safe. The Liberty grabbers solemnly promised that these commonsense ‘Gun Safety’ laws would bring an end to mass shootings. Never mind that as soon as these were passed, they backtracked, parroting the talking point that each was a ‘first step’ while promptly forgetting they ever existed.

California already has the nation’s strictest gun laws and yet in the wake of a mass murder tragedy in a bastion of restrictions on freedom, the Liberty grabber Left is doubling down looking to expand Intergalactic background checks, gun registration requirements, gun confiscation laws.

But if those laws didn’t keep anyone safe, why bother expanding their reach? Unless the true purpose of pushing new controls on Liberty isn’t about solving anything but rather expanding the Left’s power over the people.

It should be patently obvious that Leftist attempts at Liberty control do not work.

The plain fact is that we should see a decrease in ‘gun violence’ in places with strict controls on Liberty. This has never been the case, given that if it did actually work somewhere, the Liberty grabber Left would never stop talking about it. The best they can offer are selective statistics or to simply ignore the failures of their agenda. Erich Pratt in USA Today and Jacob Sullum in Reason magazine both pointed out that the mass murder in California this was another tragic failure of the obsession with Liberty Control of the Socialist-Left.

Leftists have convinced themselves that they have the moral high ground in their various causes of ‘saving the planet’ or ‘protecting the children’ thus they feel righteous in their mentality of the ‘Ends justifying the means’. So if they have to lie a ‘little’ bit, that’s perfectly acceptable – to them. If they have to pretend that mass murder tragedies only take place in the states or faking the statistics on mass shootings, that’s okay because they are ‘protecting the children’.

In some ways that cavalier attitude towards the truth highlights the underlying issue that is the heart of the problem. The Left’s flexible morality is the very reason these tragedies are taking place.

Proving that gun confiscation will not solve the problem.

Before any Liberty grabber Leftists parrot the tired old line that ‘No one is talking gun confiscation’, a reminder that our research has developed a list of over 70 instances in the past few years that talk about this very ‘solution’. Please don’t insult our intelligence or memories with the repetition of that outright lie.

It should be obvious that the Socialist-Left has been grooming the law to their ultimate goal of gun confiscation. Their current obsession of the otherwise useless tool of Intergalactic [Universal or enhanced] Background Checks is a prime example. These serve no other purpose than as a stepping stone to gun registration followed by gun confiscation, their writings have admitted to this fact.

What would happen if the Left were to get their ‘gun-free’ fantasy world?

Let us diverge from this dissertation for a moment and conduct a thought experiment on what would be the result of the Left’s final solution to the gun problem.

What would happen if we had an unlimited supply of pixel dust and unicorn droppings and we could put in place what the Left has always wanted: a gunfree’ Utopia. Imagine a magic wand emblazoned with an Everytown logo that would instantly rid the world every firearm possessed by the law abiding faster a boating accident on Chatfield lake.

Since this is a Leftist fantasy world, the ‘law’ of the magic wand would do what no other law has done – have the criminals comply as well. Just for good measure it would also take away every gun in every government’s inventory. The miraculous result would be a fantasy world free of firearms, unlike anything ever seen, because laws don’t ever work on the lawless.

What would be the result of this ‘Gun-free’ Utopia?

Leftists have the farcical idea that if no one had a gun, no one would need a gun. The problem is that evil can always fashion a weapon out of normally encountered raw materials. Those of evil intent would simply revert to the weapons used before firearms arrived on the scene. Producing edged or blunt force weapons out of readily available stone, metal, glass, wood or modern materials such as plastic, ceramic or hard candy. This wouldn’t even ‘cut down on the carnage’ since the innocent would be disadvantaged by strength or skill. Criminals would be fashioning knives and clubs as they do now in the ‘gun free’ realms of most penitentiaries.

It should be patently obvious that even if guns could be eliminated from society, evil would find another way to kill the innocent. If not guns, then edged weapons. If not edged weapons, then blunt force weapons. If not blunt force weapons, then chemical explosives. If not edged chemical explosives, then vehicular weapons. On and on and on…. The focus on inanimate objects is a fools errand, we must concentrate our gaze upon our society’s moral constructs – or lack thereof.

So, how do we solve this problem?

All of this should make it clear that more restrictions on freedom, including gun confiscation will not solve anything. They will make the situation worse – far worse – than it’s current state.

The only rational solutions would be to remove the restrictions on freedom and restore societies moral underpinnings. The first item would merely be restoring the common sense human right of self-preservation. In other words, get rid of the odious controls on Liberty and so-called ‘Gun-Free’ zones. There are an estimated 400 – 600 million guns in the hands of 120 Million gun owners with trillions of rounds of ammunition, as the saying goes there if they were a problem, everyone would know it.

By definition, criminals do not obey the law and yet Leftists think that a brand new law will reverse this trend. Or it could be that they don’t care about the actions of criminals since they consider them to be the ‘downtrodden’ so they are ‘justified’ in anything they do. Either that or their power is more important than everyone’s safety.

Restoring the world’s moral underpinnings.

Solving a problem always involves careful, unemotional analysis of its true cause. Simply focusing on what feels good or appears to be a solution, but is not will only makes things worse – far worse.

Repeating the same ineffective actions is not only insane, but dangerous as well. The current focus on guns hasn’t done anything to mitigate the problem of societal violence. It has only made the situation worse, exemplified by the recent mass murder in the people’s republic of California.

We have no other choice than to turn our focus to something other than inanimate objects.

Evil will always find a way to kill, eliminate guns and it will easily find another way. Multiple-shot or repeating firearms have been around for centuries. While these mass murder tragedies are a distinct phenomena of only the past few decades. It clearly isn’t the fault of inanimate objects, but of those wielding them.

So what has changed to cause some to conduct these horrific attacks?

The past few decades have seen a steady degradation of morality. This is the ‘glue’ that holds society together. Consideration of any other action than restoring our moral underpinning will only result in more death and destruction.

Joe Biden is considering Stacyy Abrams as his running mate. Why hasn’t he declared yet?

Joe Biden is considering Stacyy Abrams as his running mate Why hasnt he declared yet

The Joe Biden saga keeps getting stranger every week. While most anticipate the former Vice President is going to run for President in 2020, he still hasn’t announced despite most of the major candidates who were expected to run have already made their announcement. Now, a report that his staff is considering asking former Democratic contender for Georgia Governor Stacey Abrams continues to add fuel to speculation while also making this whole thing even more strange.

In 2016, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) made the rare move of announcing his Vice Presidential candidate, Carly Fiorina, before securing the nomination. It was a desperate move at a time when his prospects for defeating Donald Trump were fading and it didn’t work out. Biden’s alleged move is very different. He’s ahead in the very early polls even before the first debate, let alone the Iowa caucus. Yet speculating about a potential VP seems out of place, just like everything else in this whole debacle.

My theory is he’s trying to minimize the potential attack channels by cautiously field-testing everything first. By gathering data without officially announcing a run, he has the luxury of riding the speculation train as long as he can. He would be the instant frontrunner if he were to announce, but if history tells us anything, frontrunner status rarely means much. Hillary Clinton was the frontrunner from beginning to end in 2016, but even then the speculation of a late run by Biden was appealing to many Democrats.

Biden likely fears being the early frontrunner will generate fatigue for his name being tossed around so often. It’s still early; at this point in 2015, only one major GOP candidate, Cruz, had officially announced his run. Biden wants to ride the speculation as long as possible knowing once he’s officially in, he’s open to attacks. Just as his old boss President Obama did in 2008, some lesser known high-energy candidate could sneak up on the frontrunner and knock them off quickly. In 2015, Jeb Bush and Scott Walker were early frontrunners before being embarrassingly tossed aside by Trump and the other candidates.

Whether or not Biden selects Abrams, and if she’s willing to take the nomination, this type of speculation allows him to stay in the news while people continue to hold their collective breath about a future announcement.

Bottom line, he’s running. He’s been running for a while. The fact that he’s not official yet only plays into the fundraising he’s missing, which he’ll be able to make up quickly once he announces. All in all, the Democratic race is turning hilarious.

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats’ incentive on Electoral College

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats incentive on Electoral College

The founders decided to employ an Electoral College in picking the President to prevent tyranny by majority. They realized back then exactly what is happening today – the establishment of urban and suburban echo chambers that would rather see flyover country engulfed by a giant tornado than to “suffer” through conservative and Christian ideologies, especially in Washington DC. This is the driving force behind the sudden push to abolish the Electoral College, and the satirical masterminds at Babylon Bee nailed it.

Democratic candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is leading the charge to make the process that saved us from a Hillary Clinton presidency obsolete. Why? Because they can’t figure out how to win otherwise. Sure, they were able to dominate the Electoral College with Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, but the last two Democratic Presidents were running against weak Republicans in both of their elections. Had they been running against conservatives, especially in each of their first elections, the results may have been very different and the country may be in much better shape by now.

Nevertheless, this is what the Democrats want. Any system that can yield President Trump is a system they know they can fight against with their unhinged supporters, blind followers, and Trump haters.

That’s the nature of America today. Satire doesn’t need to venture too far away from reality in order to get a hilarious version of the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in, especially as it pertains to the loony party on the far left.

TIL the famous bar AOC worked at shut down over rising costs, minimum wage increase

TIL the famous bar AOC worked at shut down over rising costs minimum wage increase

Today I learned something that surprised me, not because of the event itself but because so few people have talked about it. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is known for being a leader of the socialist movement in Washington DC after rising from the humble status of bartender to the Congresswoman of the 14th district in New York. Her policies include a push for a “living wage” of $15 per hour. I’ve always thought the wording was odd considering Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and others have been calling for a rise in “minimum wage.” Today, I found out why she’s shying away from that phrase.

When New York City raised their minimum wage $15, many businesses were hit hard, especially in the hospitality industry. Restaurants and bars started cutting hours and often even closing their doors over the increase. One of those hit hard by the massive bump was The Coffee Shop. Owner Charles Milite blamed the closure on high costs, with the rise in minimum wage as the last straw.

“The rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees,” he said.

The Coffee Shop is the bar where AOC once worked.

Keep in mind, this wasn’t some random bar. The Coffee Shop in Union Square was considered a high-end establishment, buzzing all the time with “A-list” patrons. It was featured many times in the HBO show Sex and the City and had built a reputation as an “it” spot for Manhattan residents and tourists alike. In other words, this wasn’t a hole in the wall hanging on by a string. It was a vibrant, successful business for almost three decades before New York City’s untenable leftist policies, including a $15 minimum wage, became more than the bar could bear.

On the surface, many voters may see the very basic math of “oh, Democrats want to pay me more” and assume there’s no repercussions for such actions. This is why Democrats prey on those people who currently make lower wages. They feel if they can promise them something that sounds good even if they know with 100% certainty based on empirical evidence that it will actually hurt them, these new socialists are willing to make that trade. They figure they can blame the conservatives later for why the place they were working at before cut their hours, removed their jobs, or shut down because of raising the minimum wage.

As usual, socialists rely on ignorance and emotion as the driving forces behind their plans. They’re not stupid. They know their ideas won’t work. But they’re willing to push them on people anyway in hopes that ignorance will keep them in power.
