Layaway for Guns

Does anyone remember a long time ago when stores offered layaway programs for customers?  For those that don’t what it allowed you to do is put products you shopped for on hold and allowed you to pay a little each month until the products were yours.

OK, let me ask an easier question, do you remember way back to 10 months ago when Obama and his merry band of fellow gun banners, Shumer, Fienstein and others were pushing REALLY hard to fulfill a very long wish list of gun and magazine bans as they danced in the blood of the Newtown victims?  Of course you do because your ability to purchase ANY gun related products was about nil.

Here we are with shelves FINALLY starting to fill up again and a choice that shooters are again faced with.  My recommendation is that every single month people buy something to expand their shooting lockers.  Not necessarily a new firearm every month, but certainly things like magazines, ammo (yes I am aware it is still in short supply in many places), firearms, accessories, etc.  I am not recommending you break the bank every month.

Like the layaway programs of old days, just buy a little every month, but be consistent buy something every single month.  Consider it a savings plan against the next gun banner bazaar that we are only one mass shooting away from.

You see our enemies in the gun ban crowd will ALWAYS exploit every tragedy they can find and dance in the blood of victims, often times before any facts are even known to call for new gun bans.

Unfortunately every time this happens it is like a lottery with your rights.  First, is the Congressional make up, President, and Supreme Court lined up in the gun banners favor?  Remember the first 2 years of Obama’s first term they had a veto proof majority in both chambers of Congress and all it would have taken during that first 2 years is for Newtown to be 3 years earlier and the loss of rights would have been devastating and permanent.

The point is that you can never tell when the stars will align perfectly for the gun banners to ram home some or all of their wish list leading to total civilian disarmament.  Make no mistake this is their goal regardless of what they *say* in front of the cameras while the duplicitous rats plot behind the scenes.

These liberty robbing scum are also relentless.  They will NEVER stop working, plotting and scheming to remove your rights.  NEVER, EVER, believe you are safe from their plots and agendas, you aren’t.  Even when you aren’t hearing from them doesn’t mean they aren’t carefully working behind the scenes and assembling the next freedom robbing law and waiting for the next tragedy to exploit to ram it home.

When that day comes, and it will come, you won’t be able to buy the stuff you need at any price from any vendor.  If you doubt this simply look at the last year.  Back in February and March of 2013 you couldn’t find an AR-15 anywhere and almost no standard capacity magazines or ammo.  It was like a desert for shooters.  It is still not back to normal in many parts of the country and this is because the gun banners failed… this time.  Imagine the price and availability of this stuff if they had been successful.

Some of you will throw a bucket of cold water on this suggestion and say you have seen this before and that the gun banners will never succeed, blah, blah, blah.  Well, when you are wrong and I am proven right I will be happy to sell you some of my excess supply for 8 times the market price.  I will recoup all of the money I spent preparing little by little and you still won’t have what you need, but will be much poorer.  I have seen it before I will see it again.  I hate to be so blatant to my fellow gun lovers, but you can’t say you weren’t warned.

Since most people are not independently wealthy you should plan on using the layaway program.  Buy something, even if it is small every single month.  Don’t fail to do this.  When you can add another firearm to your collection, do it.  The day may come when you can’t at any price.  When the next mass shooting comes you will be much better prepared.

Obama’s Obsession with Gun Control

Obama recently had yet another divisive, highly partisan pander speech to gun control nuts.  Using the recent Navy Yard shootings as his most recent excuse to revisit the issue he again called for draconian (not common sense) gun control laws.  He again reiterated his desire for a ban on this mythical “assault” weapon and standard capacity magazines as well as background checks at gun shows.  Same old tired rhetoric.

The problem is the wacko who committed the shootings at the Navy Yard wouldn’t have been stopped by ANY of these proposals had ALL of them been in place for the last 10 years!  That is the issue that gun owners keep yelling about.  Quit proposing laws that will have NO impact on these incidents, but will make criminals out of otherwise law abiding people.  Just ask this guy in NJ how well all of these stupid gun control laws work that only punish harmless and law abiding people who are suddenly turned into felons that would have done almost a decade in prison for a simple violation of a stupid law that does NOTHING to stop these kinds of killings!

This guy’s sentence was commuted (not pardoned) which still makes him a convicted felon, but at least he is not serving the time in prison.  Still I think most people would agree being a convicted felon carries plenty of issues and it is so senseless.  We talk about senseless shootings but not senseless unintended consequences of all these stupid laws.

The Navy Yard shooter did NOT use the mythical and hated “assault” rifle nor did he use “high capacity” magazines.  I know this greatly saddens Obama’s cheerleaders in the media who think everything from a baseball bat to a shotgun is an AR-15, but the facts are what they are.  He used Joe Biden’s weapon of choice, a Remington 870 pump shotgun.  It has a whooping capacity of 5 rounds plus one in the chamber.  Hell, this gun doesn’t even meet the limit for bullets that New York’s stupid “Safe” ACT limits people to!  It is probably the most popular hunting gun in America and used by many deer hunters who can’t use rifles in their respective states.

I believe the reason Obama is so keyed up about this issue is because it is the first major loss he has had since he has been President.  He invested A LOT of political capital in his over the top gun ban party back at the beginning of the year and it blew up in his face when his OWN party kept it from passing.  Of course there had to be a bad guy so in this case it was the evil NRA, as if they are some independent evil entity rather than what they really are, which is a membership organization of 5 million plus members who believe in the civil right of the 2nd Amendment.

Because he was defeated he is acting like any petulant child that doesn’t get his way and throwing a temper tantrum because he was told no.  He has always been a pathetic and weak President prone to crying when he doesn’t get his way and blaming everyone but himself for every failure of which there have been many.  He won’t let this rest ever because he was denied what he wants and his incredible ego makes him think he should get whatever he wants just because he deserves it.

He went on in the speech to say we should be “obsessed” with passing new gun control laws.  The only person in this debate that is obsessed with this issue is you, Obama.

As a gun owner I will not EVER yield to even your most innocuous requests to further restrict my rights and freedoms.  This far and no farther and if I can find a way to roll back some of the infringements people like you have already imposed I will.

Obama to Sign U.N. Arms Trade Treaty

John Kerry will be signing the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty cooked up by the U.N. as a vehicle to ultimately regulate ALL firearms in every country who is a party to the treaty, i.e. the U.S. since most of the other countries surrendered their gun rights decades ago.

While this would still require a 2/3 majority in the Senate to ratify this treaty the bad thing about it is that the treaty never dies.  It lives on forever so if a future gun banning thug like Obama can put together another 60 filibuster proof Senate combined with a few weak willed Republicans like Uncle Dick Luger or any of the other gun banners in the Republican party it is very possible this would be ratified.  It doesn’t matter if that day comes tomorrow or 100 years from now.  This is like hanging an axe over your proverbial gun rights neck and leaving it there forever!

What baffles people who actually possess the ability to reason is how someone like Obama who has handed guns to terrorists and drug cartels would sign a treaty banning you from giving guns to terrorists and drug cartels!  It is supposed to stop international arms sales and gun running, but the biggest damn gun runner is OBAMA!  I know, I know, don’t try to use logic with this morons because it will only drive you crazy; kind of like an infinite math loop or something.

 

California on Verge of Banning Lead Ammo for Hunting

According to Katie LaPotin and Red Alert Politics, California is on the threshold of banning all lead ammunition for hunting.  The premise for this newest of stupid laws in California is…

  1. Lead is killing California Condors who are supposedly eating game that was killed by lead bullets and hence dying as a result of lead poisoning.

  2. That lead is getting into the meat supply and people who eat game are exposing themselves to lead.

Let’s address each of these separately.

Lead Killing California Condors

This issue has been based on a questionable use of facts and logic for quite some time.  There are documented cases of environmentalists wackos feeding Condors poisoned food with lead to try and build a case against lead bullets. For example, there have been documented cases of environmentalists wackos putting lead into dead carrion that died in other ways and then getting photos and video “proof” when a Condor comes along and eats it. 

There are also photos of Condors eating lead filled paint chips.  The point being there are other ways that Condors can be exposed to lead besides eating discarded game meat that supposedly was killed by lead ammunition.

Second issue here is the amount of lead we are talking about here.  Lead bullets are extraordinarily small, many have copper jackets on them so exactly how much lead could possibly come off of one little bullet?  Once an animal is shot with a bullet it tends to die.

Now I know it has been a few years since I completed high school anatomy class, but I am pretty sure death stops blood flow.  Assuming my high school teacher didn’t lead me astray on that point how in the world is all this lead circulating through a dead animal and polluting the entire carcass for the Condor to eat?  I suppose if the Condor comes along and ONLY eats the part of the carcass where the bullet is at then maybe, just maybe, there is a small chance but you hopefully see the incredibly small statistical chances we are talking about at this point.

Next, most responsible hunters, which is the majority, do everything possible to recover their game.  They don’t just shoot animals and leave them to rot.  Therefore exactly how much game meat can actually be out there that has any lead even in it?

Given the amount of lead that can come from pollution and other sources IF this is even an issue at all and that is a very big IF it is probably coming from water or other sources the birds are getting access to.

To summarize this point, we need vast quantities of animals that are shot by lead ammunition to be left to rot out in the woods.  We need the animal shot to have this liquid type lead bullet to continually pump through the system of a dead animal to thoroughly infect the ENTIRE carcass to levels high enough to actually kill a Condor.  Seems highly implausible.

Lead Getting into Meat Supply

What meat supply are we talking about here?  Have cows and chickens and pigs killed at slaughter houses started being killed with lead ammunition?  Nope.  We are talking about strictly wild game.  Second, whose wild game are we talking about?  That would be the hunter who killed it.  So exactly why is it the state of California’s business what I as a hunter eat or how much of it?  If I as a hunter choose to do this it is NONE OF THE STATE’S BUSINESS!  This nanny state crap has to really stop.

Second, the actual issue is a moot point anyway.  There has been studies of people who consume wild game on a regular basis all of which is probably killed with lead ammunition and they have NEVER been able to show a higher level of lead in the blood for this group of people beyond the standard population.

Further, those individuals who hunt and collect wild game cannot sell it due to multiple state and federal laws barring such actions, which of course prompts the question of exactly who owns the game if someone can’t sell it, but that is an argument for another day.  The point being is there is really no way for wild game to be introduced in the larger world of food outside of the actual hunter and their friends/family that may eat it.  So again the simple question, what business of it is the state what I eat and when?

Besides, let’s face it, most hunters tend to be gun owners and conservatives.  While certainly not all of them, probably the majority are.  Since these are 2 of many arch enemies of gun and hunting hating liberals wouldn’t you want this group to be poisoned and die?  Why are you working so hard to save them? You don’t give a crap about them or their opinions any other time, why now?

In fact liberals and gun haters usually work overtime to ignore the opinions of this group of people and shove unwanted laws down their throats every chance they get.

Now we come to the actual crux of the issue.  Lead ammunition is MUCH cheaper to acquire and hunt with.  If people in California are FORCED to buy only copper ammo then the cost of hunting with rise and may put the sport outside the reach of poorer people.  THAT is the first step towards the actual end result.  Lower the number of hunters and shooters by jacking up the price of ammo in California.

Of course even banning it from hunting is not the full goal.  You see if they are successful they will wait a little while and then start step 2 which is to say that too many people are ignoring the new law (because of cost) and therefore California needs to ban ALL lead ammo so it can’t be used by hunters and shooters.  Now the cost goes up for ALL shooting and again forces the number of shooters down as people can’t afford the already high cost of ammo and now that it must all be made of copper the price will sky rocket.

Once California falls then these same anti-gun and anti-hunting crowd will start hollering about how Condors were saved in California by this “common sense” approach and that it needs to be enacted at the Federal level so all birds, eagles, hawks, robins, etc. can all be saved. Mind you there is no problem with any of these birds today, but when these goons, their buddies in the media and their junk science are finished it will be a crisis of crisis.  Of course once that is done then we are back to step 2 noted above, but this time at the Federal level against ALL shooters EVERYWHERE.

These scum never think just one step ahead, but many.  Their “goal” that they discuss today is never the final goal, but always a stepping stone to something far more restrictive and sinister.  It has always been this way and it always will.  This is a fight for the ages, control freaks, nanny state lovers and tyrants against freedom, liberty and individual personal responsibility.

The interesting thing is that if California is dumb enough to actually pass this law either just for hunting or an entire ban it will quickly create a black market for lead based ammo because it is cheaper.  It will be very simple to smuggle ammo over the state line or simply have people leave the state and go to Nevada for instance and buy ammo there and take it back.  So California, go ahead and try your stupid law and let the smuggling begin.

 

Navy Yard Shooting Exposes Weakness in Screening

A headline in today’s Wall Street Journal reads…

“Shooting at Washington Navy Yard Exposes Screening Lapses”

While I don’t disagree with the title of the story I think this mass shooting exposes a few more things that were left out of the article…

“Gun Free” Zones Don’t Work

Here we go again, another massacre and again it takes place in one of these stupid “gun free” zones that liberals and anti-gun nut jobs love so much.  As has been proved over and over again the only thing this stupid law does is stop a law abiding person who wouldn’t have harmed anyone from carrying a licensed and legal firearm for self defense into the building.  Of course as we have also seen over and over again these laws do NOTHING to stop a killer who doesn’t care about the law.

Lack of Background Checks at Gun Shows NOT to Blame

After the anti-gun morons precious bill fell apart in Congress in April many of them were screaming that the blood from the next mass shooting would be on the NRA’s hands because they stopped the background check bill from becoming law.  We heard that if you just had background checks at gun shows for all transactions, both FFL and private dealer that mass shootings would be prevented.  In fact, that moron Diane Fienstein was out this morning claiming as much after this shooting.  However we learn this guy (who had severe mental problems) bought the gun at a sporting goods shop and PASSED a background check with no problems.  In fact, this guy even had a secret security clearance from the Navy itself!

Mental Health Records NOT in Background Checks is the Real Problem

As we have noted before the one element in common among several of the most recent mass shootings was severe mental illness.  Illness that manifested itself several times and seemingly was never reported to anyone and certainly not to anyone with the authority to put it in the Federal firearms background check database.  This guy passed a NICS background check with no problems.  By the way for the slow learners in the class like Diane Fienstein that same background if performed at a gun show would have still passed him as well and he would have walked out the door carrying the same gun.

The Media will Lie and Misreport to Drive an Agenda

Not that this needed repeating, but it bears repeating anyway just to insure the media is exposed for who they really are; a group of freedom robbing thugs with an agenda.  As usual they couldn’t wait to run out and dance in the blood of victims and report what they dearly hoped would be next mass murder that could push their anti-gun agenda over the top.

Finally, we learned that the AR-15 doesn’t come in a shotgun model.  Yes, folks, CNN in an attempt to be the first to rush out and blame the trusty old AR-15 for this killing reported that the killer used an “AR-15 Shotgun”!  How did John Wayne put it again…

“Life is hard.  It is harder if you are stupid!”

Obama’s Anti-Gun Position Keeps Making Us Stronger

Obama has been trying mightily since his second term to shove gun control down our throats.  He has ALWAYS been truly anti-gun, but during his first term he wisely didn’t move against the 2nd Amendment because he knew that would come back to hurt him at the election, but once he was safely back in office the gloves came off as most us knew they would.

However actual results may vary.  Since December when Obama has been slamming hard on this let’s look at the record of what has been happening…

  1. He has failed to pass any Federal legislation.
  2. The NRA has grown from a little over 4 million members to now over 5 million.
  3. 2 anti-gun politicians in Colorado that supported Obama were blown out of office on a recall vote.
  4. Gun sales have soared to unprecedented levels for 5 straight years now.
  5. Far more states than have clamped down on guns have actually expanded gun freedoms.
  6. Every single gun related item you could have bought a year ago has been sold out and on back order, i.e. ammo, guns, gear, etc.

His record on guns has been pretty dismal.  The reason of course is because this is a civil liberty and Constitutional right and people are done surrendering their freedoms and civil liberties.  Obama is an unprecedented narcissist who has always believed he really could alter the world to his vision simply because he desired it.

I find it hilarious to watch one failure after another on this front and others as well.  Of course it will not alter his course one bit.  Until he is out of office he will be a danger to our civil liberties, but so far the only thing he has accomplished is making us far stronger and more engaged than we were before.  Your opportunity for a sneak attack was ever only a good idea in your narcissistic mind.  We ALWAYS knew who you really were and were simply waiting for you to make your move.

Therefore, I say to Obama, carry on chief.  If you keep at this the NRA will be 8 million members strong before this is over and you will succeed in losing the Senate as well as still not being able to reclaim the House.  If you keep interfering in State elections we will keep sending the anti-gun politicians back to you defeated.  You just don’t understand that the harder you push on this issue the more powerful we will get.

Colorado was your latest move and we handed you your arss… again!  I do believe we just sent you another message.  Think carefully about your next choice.  Its your move…

Molon Labe!

Billionaire vs. Plumber…Billionaire Lost!

The results of the Colorado recall election are in and Nanny Bloomberg’s two cronies that voted for gun control lost!  Yes, you read that correctly, despite dumping $350K into the race and trying to rally his “troops” to save the 2 anti-gun Democrats he failed!

Despite the groups pushing for the recall being out spent 7-1 and going up against a political machine that was designed to pump out perfect PR and messaging in carefully structured commercials they still lost.  The people calling for the recall ran the campaign on a shoestring and used complete grassroots strategies.

Oh, I almost forgot this other great part, one of the people tossed out of office was in a heavily Democrat district that Comrade Obama won by 20 points.  So how did this happen?  Simple, politicians in Colorado tried to deny a free people a God given right.

The tyrants refused to even listen to their constituents.  In fact, they were told by Nanny Bloomberg and Comrade Obama to ignore their emails, phone calls, and town halls.  Just stay focused and ram through gun control.  What the people wanted was irrelevant it was about what the gun control thugs wanted and what was “good for the little people” who apparently were too dumb to see how good this would be for them.

Unfortunately this victory didn’t actually change the political make-up of the Colorado statehouse enough to reverse the damage done by these tyrants, but hopefully it shows other tyrants in other states and at the Federal level just what happens to tyrants that don’t respect the rights and will of the people.  If you ignore the will of the people even a billionaire can’t save you.

While I realize the victory was largely symbolic so was the battle at Thermopylae 2,500 hundred years ago, but go ask the Persians how well that turned out for them.

So it would appear that history is repeating itself here.  Tyrants who arrive and tell the people to lay down their arms or else.  There was another battle like that 2,500 years ago in Thermopylae when the Persians told the Spartans to throw down their weapons and they calmly responded…

Molon Labe!

Gun Banners in California Reveal True Goal of Gun Control

One of the things all anti-gun radical politicians do when they pass or propose new gun control legislation, not gun safety since it has nothing to do with firearm safety and non of these people are qualified if it was, but I digress.  One of the things they ALWAYS say is…

We are not going to take away your guns

This of course generally includes when they want to ban standard capacity magazines, which they always say you can keep them if you have them.  Accept when they think they can ram through some more stuff.

The People’s Republic of Kalifornia is set to pass another round of gun control legislation making them the strictest state in the country on gun control.  Among the little gems they are trying to get through include…

  1. Total ban on ANY semi-automatic rifle with a detachable magazine.  By the way that would include the little Ruger 10/22 that fires .22 rounds and is used by many youth groups, including the Boy Scouts.
  2. Total ban on ANY ownership of standard capacity magazines, which the radicals call “high capacity”, which in Kalifornia is anything over 10 rounds.  They ban the sale of these magazines a long time ago, but if you already had magazines capable of holding over 10 you could keep them, but not now.  Now you have to get rid of them completely.
  3. Ammo purchase registration database (they have had a firearms registration database for while now) that will record and track all of your ammo purchases.

Of course when the last round of gun control went through and the one before that and the one before that and one before that… well you get the idea.  We are always assured of several things…

  1. It is critical.  This be done RIGHT NOW!
  2. It will end bad things ever happening with guns
  3. They won’t try and take away your guns

Of course none of this is true.  The same pattern always occurs, it is how much can they ram through right now.  Once that is done digesting then they go for the next chunk of gun control, over and over again and each time we are told the same 3 things above and each and every time it is never true.

The bottom line NEVER trust a gun banner.  They ALWAYS lie and what they want today is NEVER the whole story.  They want a TOTAL ban on all privately owned firearms, but realize they need to do it in bits and bites.  Death by a thousand paper cuts kind of thing.

And they wonder why pro liberty people always fight like hell whenever they propose “common sense” gun control, which always lacks any semblance of “common sense” and is never the end game.  Never give them one inch.  NEVER!

Molon Labe!

Santa Monica Shooter Broke Many Gun Laws

Of course as everyone now knows over the weekend their was another lunatic who went out and randomly tried to kill a bunch of people with guns.  However something was different this time.

Usually when someone does something like this, especially with one of those evil “assault” rifles the gun banning autocrats like Bloomberg, Feinstein, Obama, Biden and others risk breaking an ankle trying to run out in front of a camera howling for more gun control laws.

That doesn’t seem to be taking place this time or at least not the way it has in the past.  As I type this it is Monday morning and I don’t see the usual gun banning crew out there working overtime to exploit this crisis.  Why?  That is the big question… Why?

We have all the ingredients for a great gun ban hatchet job here….

  • Evil “assault” rifle – Check
  • “High Capacity” magazines – Check
  • Random killing of innocent people – Check
  • Reasonably high kill list of 5 people – Check

So where are they?  Answer, while they possess all the key ingredients to make their favorite gun ban stew unfortunately someone came along and peed in their stew.

See this little tragedy occurred in Santa Monica, which rests squarely in the People’s Republic of California, where every item on the killer’s check list is ALREADY illegal and HAS BEEN for a number of years!  That’s right, the very items this maniac used has been illegal in Kalifornia for many years, but as most criminals do he simply BROKE the law! Gasp!  Imagine that a criminal who broke a gun law!  I know really hard to believe that in the act of murdering a bunch of innocent people he would break these stringent and highly effective gun laws, only a few among hundreds.

So we see that all of these gun laws that are supposed to keep us safe and secure are actually an utter failure.  As most gun laws are because they only work against the already law abiding citizen.  Criminals, as has been the case since the dawn of time, break laws! I know hard to believe, but it is true.

So here again we see the complete and total failure of all the gun laws that the gun banning goon squad want to pass on a national level again fail in Kalifornia.  As a result the usual exploitation of this tragedy doesn’t really work in their favor.

When or if they come out trying to exploit it people like me will point out that all the gun control laws in the world as have existed in Kalifornia didn’t help one bit in stopping this.  They never will.  Criminals will continue to break laws, which is what criminals do.  Politicians will continue to push for stupid and ineffective laws, which was politicians do.  Citizens will continue to be snared in these stupid laws and go to prison for 5 years for dumb laws that don’t affect criminals.

Gun Debate Finally Slowing Down

As everyone knows the vote for pointless gun control in the Senate has failed.  Of course all of the gun grabbers started howling about how the next school shooting will be the fault of the NRA.  Carolyn McCarthy, Representative from NY and a long time gun grabber even suggested that the next Boston Bomber terrorists would have an easier time pulling off a new terrorist act because of this failure in the Senate to pass new gun control.

I wonder if she remembers the extensive background check done by the FBI in 2011 on these suspects and it came up empty handed back then.  Is that the crack investigative background she is referring to?  Because we all know how pathetic the FBI’s investigative skills are compared to a NICS check to buy a firearm.  Moron.  If the FBI investigated this guy and came up empty handed how in the world does this idiot believe a simple NICS check would have caught him trying to buy a gun?

As predicted after the laws failed to pass a Democratically controlled Senate many Senators started claiming this would happen all over again and that the bill would be coming back for another vote.  Of that I have no doubt.  Gun grabbers will never give up and neither will we.

However I thought it would be instructive to look at the last 3 high profile mass shootings and see how the proposed law would have affected (or not) the outcome.  Please note, in all cases below I will NOT be using names for these killers or linking to stories.  We all know who they are and I will not help give them fame for their heinous deeds.

First, Arizona with a psycho who shot Gabby Giffords and murdered/injured many others.  This guy had serious mental issues that many people later claimed caused him to get thrown out of college.  Yet, he managed to pass a background check just fine to purchase a firearm and related gear.

Second, the Colorado Theater shooter who it is now being reported also has serious mental issues and allegedly produced a journal detailing exactly what he wanted to do over a month before he killed all the people at the theater.  His psychologists allegedly had this book a month before and did nothing with it.  In any case, he also managed to pass a background check to purchase all of his firearms legally from a gun store.

The final and last little bastard is of course one of the worst.  The killer who killed over 26 people including 20 children in Newtown Connecticut.  This guy was also seriously mentally disturbed, but did not get his firearms for the heinous act from a gun store.  Instead he shot his own mother to death and stole her guns.  Theft being exactly how many criminals get their guns.

In all 3 cases the individuals in question had serious mental issues where many red flags were present for months and in some cases years in advance and yet in 2/3 of these cases passed background checks and one stole the guns.  The common thread of course is mental illness, not the ability to get guns easily from gun shows, which none of them did.

So you have to ask yourself would ANY of these cases been stopped if the bill that failed in the Senate had been in effect for the last 10 years.  The answer is a solid NO.  The law being presented in the Senate would have done NOTHING to stop all three of these killers.  What would have helped would have been background checks that flagged these people as mentally ill and stopped them from buying guns until they could be further examined, but THAT law was not proposed and THAT law was not voted down.

So again we see that gun control was presented yet again with the sole purpose of simply passing another useless law that would have done nothing but trip up and snare good people who are responsible gun owners while doing NOTHING to stop the last 3 high profile killers.  This again shows gun control is not about guns so much as it is about control.

The failure of the Senate in this case was a good thing and the good news to all the gun grabbers that are crying about this failure, please rest easy in knowing that even if it had passed it would have done nothing to prevent the tragedies of the past.  If you want to cry about something how about the fact that the Senate didn’t propose ANY legislation that would have actually helped and ridiculed all ideas (like armed people in schools) that would have actually helped.

If there is blood on anyone’s hands after the next school shooting it will from the gun grabbing liberals who still deny the simple fact the the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun and criminals don’t care that you post those stupid signs outside of schools declaring it a gun free zone.  They will ignore it as they do most other laws you think will help.
