Each gun massacre incident raises fears that the government might initiate gun control, which drives up gun sales via a kneejerk reaction. Gun purchasers react to massacres tinyurl.com kneejerk style.
Once again, every gun nut in America has galvanized themselves into defending the profits of Glock, Smith and Wesson, Sig Sauer and Charter Arms, et al. Guns don’t kill people, laws that prohibit guns kill people, the gun toters claim.They recite one-third of the Second Amendment, ignoring the other two-thirds.
Guns don’t kill people; laws that restrict 100-shot assault rifle magazines and 15-shot semi-auto pistol magazines kill people. Just ask Ice T, he must have an IQ at least as high as Einstein, and Ice T says guns don’t kill people. Ask Charlton Hesston; he will tell you on film that from my cold dead hands. If you need to sell a product like Tobacco, or Vioxx, you need a celebrity to tell people the product does not kill so they will buy more of a deadly product.
14 December 2012, sales of Glocks, Sig Sauer and Smith and Wesson jumped way up, as did sales of ammo. Every mass shooting in the US drives up the sales of the product that killed that particular mass of dead Americans. Dead Kindergarters are really good for gun shop owners sales.
This article and others like it will draw out every gun nut in America, who will tell you if only those kindergarters had been packing Glocks, they would still be alive — each blogger online writing such drivel lies is spreading NRA’s Wayne LaPierre’s tinyurl.com NRA poison lie. Neighborhoods with conceal carry laws have less crime — actually, that is a blatant lie, they have more crime.
The other thing the gun bloggers do, is go on and on about the right to bear arms shall not be infringed, the framers and the second amendment.
The guns nuts keep chattering, bickering, blogging about the right to bear arms shall not be infringed… the founders this, the framers of the Constitution that. * Those guys * had flintlocks, single shot, muzzle loading flintlocks - one to two minutes of reload time between shots. When they wrote the second amendment, they wrote it during an era when swords were used when the one-two minutes gun reload time was too inconvenient in the heat of battle. They did not write the second amendment, as worded, for 100-shot assault rifles and 15-shot Glock semi-auto pistols.
Despite the antiquity of the guns in the 1770’s, the founders did write: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”. This is what the NRA, the politicians the NRA controls, and the gun crazies always ignore and squirm at: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”.
Do you see anything well regulated about Columbine High School, the Gabby Giffords shooting rampage and the Aurora, Colorado Batman shooting spree? Do you see anything well regulated about Sandyhook Elementary School
Adopting the gun control laws of the ten states with the least amount of gun deaths per capita would give Americans what the US Constitution says we should have: a well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State. Once you fire the first single shot, deer are running in all directions away from you and into scrub or woods. So basically, a 100-shot clip on an assault rifle is for killing humans. So is a 15 shot clip on a Glock or Sig Sauer. The Brady Bill was supposed to address this issue; instead the NRA has blackmailed politicians into one gun massacre after another, with each gun massacre driving excessive sales of guns and ammunition. Between now and Christmas, record numbers of gun sales will occur because of Sandyhook. Google searches for Glocks and Sig Sauer went way up today.
Many of the gun clans are muttering that kindergarten teachers need to carry guns in the classroom. Anything to avoid discussing “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”. This tinyurl.com blog has a comment that quotes the second amendment, but then keeps referring to “Right to Bear Arms is an unalienable right” and “the right to keep and bear arms is what keeps government subservient to its citizenry”. The notion that the government behaves itself because some 20-something year old kid owns a Glock is one of the most ridiculous yarns spun by the gun industry and its consumers.
The comments infer some belief in the citizenry having massive power over government via guns. It is a massively childish notion, as well as one, which seems to repeatedly ignore the words “well regulated” and “the security of a free State”.
Do you see anything well regulated and do you see a secure, free state when you think of Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora Batman, and Sandyhook?
Guns don’t kill people. Attitudes of hatred and blatant disregard for the suffering families such as that blogged by this blogger tinyurl.com kill people. Just what the world needs after today, more sociopathy and hatred.
CNN has a timeline tinyurl.com of the worst US mass gun shootings, do you recall any of these having a secure state and well regulated guns to go along with the shooters supposed inalienable birth right to massacre humans? The gun crazies, the NRA and the politicians cling to one of three parts of the second amendment; the bear arms part and totally tune out the secure state and well regulated part. Gun nuts croon about how precious this right is, but they are crooning only about one of the three parts of the second amendment. It is time to well regulate guns and have secure free state. Guns don’t kill people, gun lobbiests, third-rate-actors and politicians do. Guns don’t kill people, deep rooted soul sickness and hatred kills people. Ignoring “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State” kills people.
What about the eighth amendment rights of the dead to not suffer cruel and unusual punishment? When these gun massacres occur, it seems that the bloggosphere becomes innundated with right wing gun nuts howling about their rights - what of the rights of the dead and their greiving relatives? What of the rights of the mothers of the dead children? The gun nuts hate terms like tinyurl.com batshit crazy gun nuts.
Joey Nova takes on the batshit crazy gun nuts tinyurl.com here, by deconstructing their three most common arguments:
1) Guns don’t kill people, people kill people
2) We have the right to defend ourselves
3) It’s our right to own guns under the second amendment
