Martin O’Malley Calls for New “Assault” Weapon Ban…Again

In the spirit of never letting a crisis go to waste Martin O’Malley is the latest flat earth gun control supporter calling for another “assault” weapon ban…again. How does that saying go it is like deja vu all over again. Apparently this clown doesn’t even read his own adoring paper the New York Times, which also admitted that the “assault” weapon ban enacted from 1994 to 2004 didn’t make any difference. Why? Because the vast amount of thugs killing people do NOT use modern sporting rifles, which 2nd Amendment hating, flat earth supporters, like O’Malley call “assault” weapons. The term is a completely and carefully poll tested word used by freedom hating POS like O’Malley to remove rights from us.

It is interesting that he is using the latest crisis in South Carolina to call for this ban. First, the shooting itself was NOT done with a modern sporting rifle. Not that this should make a difference, but it does show how these freedom hating thugs call for any and all types of gun control every time an event like this occurs. Second, the issue in South Carolina was more about mental illness than guns. If we fix the mental illness issue in this country people like this guy in South Carolina should be able to get the treatment he obviously needs.

2nd Amendment hating, anti freedom and anti civil liberties people like O’Malley will never understand the real issue and quite frankly don’t want to. They are more interested in striping freedom from private citizens than actually solving problems, which is what the entire gun control industry is based on.

The formula is always the same. First, wait for “crisis” that involves a gun. Second, don’t wait for the facts and start dancing in the blood of the victims and calling for “common sense” gun laws. Next, try and find a way to work in the words “assault” weapon into every news report the group does on national media, even if the perp uses a knife it becomes a conversation about “assault” weapons. Pull out a long wish list of gun ban laws that are always ready to go in their desk drawer and propose it as THE solution to THIS problem even though they are always the same tired ideas which have been pitched for years. Lastly when you don’t gain traction, blame it your lack of progress on the powerful “gun lobby” and NRA. Rinse and repeat.

In the case of O’Malley work a little fund raising in the issue as well. No point in not squeezing your supporters for a few bucks for your personal coffers at the same time. These guys will never understand we have 20,000 gun laws on the books right now. We don’t need any more “common sense” solutions, which only make it harder for private, law abiding, citizens to exercise their rights and won’t even slow a criminal down. But again, it isn’t about real solutions. It is about control.

The real solution to this latest shooting is two fold. First, fix the mental health system in this country. Of course that is hard and expensive and time consuming so it is easier to just call for some more “common sense”, but useless gun control law and call it a day. Second, eliminate the criminal protection zones like this church was. Gun free zones don’t work and never have. A thug bent on murder isn’t going to change his plans because you put your stupid little no guns sign up. It isn’t like garlic to a vampire, it doesn’t repel criminals. If you really want to stop mass shootings stop creating victim zones where law abiding citizens can’t carry and protect themselves and become prey for thugs like this guy. If anyone in that room besides the killer had a firearm they may have ended this before it became a mass shooting, but hey, let’s just propose another “common sense” gun control law because they always work; full sarcasm intended.

The bottom line is I don’t care how many politicians use the word “common sense” and talk about how this never happens in more enlightened countries like Australia. As a 2nd Amendment supporter I am not giving up one more right for a useless law that won’t solve a damn thing. Not one more inch.

If I don’t like it then ban it!

If I don’t like your TV, radio, book, magazine, guns, speech, etc. then I want it banned! That is a familiar cry of statist everywhere and it is happening again with anti-hunting nut jobs petitioning Facebook to remove legal photos of a legal hunt by a 19 year old Texas girl. It seems to be much more prominent on the left, but the right is not innocent in this area either. No where in the Constitution does it say you have a right to not be offended.

When statist disagree with something or are offended by something they resort to calling in government or corporate power to ban said item. Instead of simply allowing that item to have its space in the world and go do something else they want the heavy hand of tyranny to stop it. First, in case any of these clowns who want this girl’s photos banned were to bother looking into the facts, these hunts are all LEGAL! Furthermore, these hunts are actually contributing to the preservation of these animals as a species in Africa.

However in an effort to avoid letting facts get in the way of a good emotional cause tens of thousands of people want Facebook to remove her photos, which again are legal on Facebook and of legal hunts because they [anti-hunting statist] don’t like them. Well, boo hoo. unlike the page and ignore it if you don’t want to see it.

I was in Mexico once and had an opportunity to do a swim with dolphins. The interaction was incredible and better than any similar program in the United States. I was able to spend over an hour in the water with them, swim with them, be pulled around and pushed around the water by them, pet them and have an awesome interaction for a fraction of the cost a much more restricted program in the U.S. offered. Why? Because in Mexico this park would not even exist if it wasn’t for funding from tourist who want a first class experience. Mexico simply doesn’t have the funds to set up these types of preserves and NEEDS tourist dollars to protect these species and provide a sanctuary for them.

It is the same in Africa where this young lady was hunting. Without hunting and the fees it generates they would never have the funds to protect any of these animals or provide a sanctuary for them. Again, the facts show that these animals have actually flourished in population even with controlled and legal hunts being allowed. In addition, without hunting certain animals, with no natural predators (lions and leopards) would eventually become too populated and kill off other species and then die of starvation. Yes, that is so much better than allowing some of them to be hunted.

The bottom line is hunting is necessary to generate money for conservation and keep populations of certain species under control. Gun owners that purchase ammunition and firearms as well as hunters that purchase licenses and equipment generate more money for conservation than all organizations of HSUS, PETA, or any of the other radical anti-hunting groups combined! Contrary to the belief of the morons who support these groups, hunters don’t wish to kill off all the animals they love. We want to preserve them so future generations of hunters can also enjoy the sport. Hunters have a symbiotic relationship with the animals we hunt.

I congratulate this young lady for her interest in hunting and the benefits to the preservation of these animals she provides. Carry on!

Congress, err, I mean the President Should Do his Job!

According to the eloquent speaking lying Jay Carney he is quoted as saying…

“The president has always said he will talk about anything. What he won’t do is pay a ransom…in exchange for Congress doing its fundamental job.”

Really? “Willing to talk about anything”… how big of him. Maybe sometime before the end of his presidency or this country, whichever comes first, we can actually get him to do something instead of just talking about it. So far the only thing I have seen Obama do is talk such as blaming Bush for everything, making excuses for his failures, or denying any knowledge of damn near anything that happens in his administration such as IRS abuses, gun running at the justice (small “j” since they don’t actually dispense Justice) Department or failure to save 4 brave Americans who died waiting for help in Benghazi.

Also, speaking of jobs, isn’t it the job of the Senate (The Democratically controlled one) to create a budget, which for some strange reason we have not seen in 5 YEARS! Or here is another one, how about voting on the HUGE pile of funding bills the House has sent to them already. Call me crazy, but I thought the Senate was a voting body, but you wouldn’t know if from their utter failure to vote on any of the funding bills sitting on their desk right now.

You see, Carney, if the Senate would do their job not only would veterans be allowed to see their own Memorials, but their families might actually be paid some death benefits as well, but we wouldn’t have to have these battles every year or so because we would know how much to spend by LOOKING AT THE BUDGET!!!! you nitwit!
