"It'll Save 2,000 Lives!
One of the flimsiest claims by anti-gun fools is that a total gun ban would save “only” 2,000 lives. Anti-gun fools always quote that inflated number of 32,000 people killed by guns each year. Of course, what they don’t tell you is their “list” includes all the justified shootings by police officers, as well as suicides, plus all private citizens’ use of guns in self defense. Again, what they don’t tell you is that if somebody really wants to commit suicide and can’t get a gun, they’ll use something else. So making it harder to get a gun isn’t going to make much of a difference, there. Then there’s the fact—the unalterable fact-- that making laws against guns does not stop an evil-doer from getting his/her guns.
BANNING GUNS IS FUTILE: Politicians, nationwide, are bent on one thing” to DISARM all Americans, in one way or another. If they can’t just ban guns because of that pesky ol’ Constitution, they do everything they can to make it difficult to buy a gun—and if you actually manage to buy one, they make it difficult to get ammunition—which makes the gun in your hand just a lump of metal, only good for throwing at an ILLEGALLY-armed criminal. Then if you do actually find some ammunition you can buy, there’s the insurance that want to force you to buy. Special insurance, that is extra expensive, and is purposely made hard to get. If you manage to get that, then you find that there are “gun-free zones” all over the place.
GUN LAWS HELP CRIMINALS: Politicians insist that they’re only interested in “gun safety,” and “keeping guns out of the hands of criminals,” but that’s a lie. Every one of the laws they have voted into effect, ONLY apply to people who OBEY laws. Criminals, by definition, do NOT obey laws. So why, tell me, do they expect a criminal will suddenly decide to obey a silly little law like that when they are contemplating committing much more serious crimes? All their laws do is keep guns out of the hands of the law-abiding, so as to make it easier for the criminals to victimize them.
NO BLUE WAVE: No “Red Wave,” either. Republicans lost the House, but kept control in the Senate. So we can at least STOP the worst of the Dumocrat outrages. Of course, that won’t stop the incessant duplicitous “investigations” that will cost us $millions as Dumocrats increase their efforts to unseat the legally-elected president. Colorado, where I live, went entirely blue, electing a gay Dumocrat governor and a majority of Dumocrats to other offices. For the first time in a long time, the criminals completely control the government in Colorado, and we will suffer accordingly.
THE SECOND RULES: New York State tried its best to strangle the NRA by CLAIMING it was “doing nasty things” by selling “carry insurance” to concealed carriers in the state. They also tried, through the Department of Financial Services, to stop other businesses from even doing any kind of business with the NRA. Fortunately, wiser heads intervened, and allowed the NRA’s suit against New York State to go forward. New York had arbitrarily decided NRA’s “Carry Guard” insurance was in violation of the law, and even had the temerity to cancel the policies of those who had already PAID for the coverage. The NRA suit was to correct that silly assumption.
ONE MAN’S OPINION: The Rapper Akon (who?) says he “might” run for president against Trump. He really thinks he would have a snowball’s chance in hell. Well, if you want to spend a lot of money to be humiliated along with the rest of the losers… A Kentucky woman who claimed Judge Kavanaugh raped her now says she “made it up” to gain attention, and that she has never even met the man… Christine Ford’s claims that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her 40 years ago have fallen flat, with none of her witnesses remembering anything of the sort. Sounds like just another lying claim to get noticed… Obama is calling Trump’s moving troops to the border a “political stunt.” Well, he oughta know. He’s pulled enough of them… “Mad Max(ine)” Waters says, if Dumocrats win, they’re gonna do to us what we did to them. What the hell did we do to them? Disagree with them? Use their tactics on them? I don’t know. At least they didn’t win big enough for her to go nuts. Oh.Forgot. She's already nuts…
