As Long As There Have Been Guns in America, There Have Been Attempts to Regulate Them
The legal history of the United States is strongly on the side of the sensible regulation of firearms, no matter what the gun-fondling political right might say.

Of course it is, but we (“we” in general, I.e. most Americans) don’t know that, because of a well-financed, all-pervasive and decades-long effort by the Usual Interests to get the country to either forget our lengthy history of firearms regulation, assume it was a regrettable relic of the past, and paint contemporary attempts to utterly deregulate any trade in deadly armaments as a noble effort in the Sacred. Causes of “self-protection” and “defending Constitutional Rights”, or whatever bullshit rhetoric suits…..

re: #8 Eclectic Cyborg

I mean, it’s almost as if there’s a deep-seated cultural sickness that has been deliberately cultivated by 40+ years of right-wing propaganda and exacerbated by social media and myriad other factors that people either don’t want to consider or can’t even recognize.

Did you ever watch the TV show “House”? It was a medical mystery show. A typical episode consisted of a patient coming into the hospital with a set of symptoms that suggested a relatively simple malady with an obvious treatment. Then when the obvious treatment didn’t work, the patient developed new symptoms and got dramatically worse. Lo and behold the intrepid doctors discovered that the patient had somehow been shoving radioactive fuel rods up their ass for decades, or something.

I exaggerate, (the show was actually better than that), but this kind of feels like how America is going right now.

The tipping point will be when it becomes a losing position politically. Once that happens, they’ll turn on a dime. Voters need to start seeing NRA approval as disqualifying for candidates. Politicians accepting NRA endorsements should be shamed and ridiculed.

The Columbine shooters originally planned to set off bombs in the school cafeteria and then shoot survivors as they ran out of the nearest single exit. The reason they abandoned that plan was that their bombs didn’t work.

450 million firearms in the USA just among the private citizens. It is no accident that there are this many guns in our country. It is by design so that there would be no way in hell any legislation would ever get those guns back. It’s about money, plain and simple, like everything else. The Divided States of Capitalism.

Quick “post and run”…

On the artillery in Ukraine…

1. The Russians are thought to have deployed ~4700 cannon

2. The Ukrainians are thought to have started with about 1800. Of the same types as the Russians.

3. The US is/has sent 108 M777. Up from 90 a couple of weeks ago.

4. The French have sent 12 ‘Ceaser’ mobile cannon.

5. The Estonians are thought to have provided about 12 Italian made FH70’s.

6. The Italians have about 90 FH70’s and may send some as well.

7. The US has about 415 HIMARS. (375 Army, 40 in Marines). Lockheed produces about 30 per year. The US is planning on announcing sending some to Ukraine. No numbers have been mentioned yet, that I have seen. (This number may include tracked as well as wheeled versions.)

8. Poland has reportedly ordered 500 HIMARS.

9. The US is now talking about sending the M109 Self propelled 155mm howitzer.

10. Czech has reportedly sent their 152mm mobile Dana. They had on the order of 30 iirc. I have not seen any report on how many were sent. To me anyway, ‘All’ would sound quite reasonable.

11. I suspect that most every NATO country is currently cleaning out their storage facilities of former Soviet equipment. It’s all 30-40 years old or more. Less functional than current NATO equipment. And, after watching the Russian’s various problems with it, probably no longer marketable to any ‘real’ military.

I know people who knew that guy. While they can’t be sure, one hypothesis was that he wanted to see if/how he can figure out to carry out the biggest mass shooting in history. Like a fucked up puzzle to be solved.
That he offed himself 10 or 15 minutes into the shooting rather than continuing to try and kill as many as possible maybe means that the full realization of what he was doing hit home.

Dems want to take ALL OUR GUNS AWAY!

According to my Twitter feed, which of course is ALMOST CERTAINLY the final arbiter of all reality, there is a non-zero contingent of left-leaning people who actually feel this way.

“The Constitution doesn’t contemplate assault rifles,” they say, echoing Alito’s leaked Roe decision.

They’re full of things that “the Founders Never Imagined”, while not stopping to think that “the founders” also never imagined things like the Internet, personally-owned printers, encryption, and black women legally allowed to vote.

They are utterly oblivious to the notion that a “war on guns” would be waged by the same heroes and geniuses who waged the “war on drugs”.

re: #54 First As Tragedy, Then As Farce

It’s also pretty obvious the founders didn’t contemplate the Constitution being used to ensure its own destruction or mass killings sanctioned by the government under it either. Not being able to think about the future is neither a think we should think means it’s ok or it’s bad. Our arguments should stand on their own, and theirs should, too.

We have basically banned these types of weapons before, and we can do it again. And no, I’m not talking about the assault weapons band, but how we eliminated the Tommy gun. And we can get there with something similar.

What you’re describing is how a group of people desperate to get rid of these type of guns in a climate where a minority of people are setting the rules for the rest of the country. And I totally understand. But kids are dying, and whining about these attempts to stop the slaughter seems to be focused on the wrong target.

I was looking for a DVD to watch in the local library this afternoon and came across Mass. I had heard of it through a film-review podcast, so I knew what I was getting into. In terms of the acting, it’s superb. The parents of a school shooter and the parents of one of the victims come together in a sparse room in an Episcopal church by arrangement of one family’s grief counselor. The only thing that felt off is that it tiptoed past gun availability toward mental health, but it’s a subtle movie and I could be wrong. Highly recommend.

Abbott says shooter had a ‘mental health challenge’ (yeah sure)

He said “the state” needed to do a better job with mental health

Last month he cut $211m from Texas mental health programs

Texas ranks last out of all 50 states and DC for overall access to mental health care.. quelle surprise.

The fine print at that website:

IMPORTANT NOTE: Sales tax included where applicable. Your trial subscriptions come with a convenient automatic renewal. At the end of your trial subscription, we will notify you. If you want to keep the publication(s), do nothing and we will renew your subscription using your credit/debit card on file and charge you $49.95 for one year (12 issues) of The Franklin Prosperity Report and $109 for one year (12 issues) of The Dividend Machine. And then every year thereafter at the lowest renewal rates then in effect. There is no risk, you can cancel within the first six months for a full refund of the unused portion of your subscription. 

They are betting the seniors are too senile to cancel, thus getting $160 from them.

I ordered today and turned down a trial membership offer. I hope it annoys then that I won’t take Prime for free. I don’t pay for shipping anyway because I just wait until I can order over the minimum.

How you suffered for your sanity
How you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they’ll listen now
For they could not love you
But still your love was true
And when no hope was left inside
On that starry, starry night
You took your life as lovers often do
But I could have told you, Vincent
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you
Starry, starry night
Portraits hung in empty halls
Frameless heads on nameless walls
With eyes that watch the world and can’t forget
Like the strangers that you’ve met
The ragged men in ragged clothes
The silver thorn of bloody rose
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow
Now, I think I know what you tried to say to me
How you suffered for your sanity
How you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they’re not listening still
Perhaps they never will
