Guns don’t kill people; lack of proper signage kills people

The International Liberty blog points out, correctly, that this video is so funny because it accurately describes the way the anti-gun mavens, all real-world evidence to the contrary, believe anti-gun laws work:

Repeat after me:

1. An armed citizenry is the only bulwark against a tyrannical government.
2. When seconds count, the cops (no matter how well-intentioned) are only minutes away.

    This always reminds me of Red Foxx.  When I was a kid I had an 8-track of his routine.  He brought up some white lines California had started putting on the freeway to define a “safety zone”  I remember his line, “Come on Ethel we’re safe behind the line.”  Foxx remarked, no that line is so they can measure how far that truck knocked you after it hit you.   

    And here is a genius.  Willie Wonka Was Not a Logician!  An art history professor ranting about the Willie Wonka picture.  He goes out of his way to claim critical thinking then demonstrates none making uncritical assumptions in an attempt to get his anti-gun message across.

    “…which is more than what I can say about the nimrods who post the above picture as a way of defending their right to purchase and carry an AR-15 assault rifle.”
    Cush was the father of Nimrod, who grew to be a mighty warrior on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the LORD. (Genesis 10:8-9).  WebBible Online
    Thank you for your complement, Brian!
     
    “I mean, really! If someone is just going to break the law, what’s the point in it?”
    If the law is broken and that’s the end of it, certainly.
    But if one or more of the tens of thousands of laws is quickly enforced, and the sentence fully carried out, then there is a point to the law.  Oh, that would mean putting some poor oppressed disadvantaged person in jail, and we can’t have that, now, can we?

    They would if the crimes were reported in less than 20 or 30 years.

    “What do you need to do in order to purchase an AR-15, an assault rifle with a 100 round clip, a weapon, I might add, that was constructed and made with one purpose: to kill people?”
    I was taught to use an M-16 (real military, fully automatic version) to keep people on my side from being killed.”
     
    “I think we should go back to 18th-century muskets, the kind of weapons that had to be primed and loaded one musket ball at a time. They were also about six feet long, so there would be no need for a concealed permit.  And if you want to go all Second Amendment on me, all I ask is that you simply ask what function it served for the framers of the Constitution.”
    They also had braces of pistols and cannon.   And knives and pitchforks and billhooks.  Not to mention kegs of black powder that could be set off like a bomb.  It was all to end the oppression of the British Government.
    The early settlers often had several muskets each, and family members to load them between shots, to maintain a high rate of fire.

    I’ll let the Bazooka Division of the NRA handle this, since I don’t have bazooka-certified NRA membership.

    More “Gun Free Zone” signs?
     
    Maybe they should try that in Chicago and Detroit. 
     
    Our embassy in Benghazi was a gun free zone, but maybe the signs were in the wrong language.

    Ron19, the blog of Bryan, who describes it as a “rambling thoughts of a 30-something art history professor”, certainly lives up to its name, doesn’t it? Rambling thoughts from a clueless young academic. 

    We post laws to dissuade people from disobeying laws and to punish criminals that do disobey laws. It is already illegal for criminals to own firearms and, when you punish them for murder, it is already too late for the victim. T

    The question at hand is whether individuals have the right to defend themselves against criminals. If you cede the right to decide that question to your government, then you have ceded your independence as an individual to that government. They own you by virtue of having the right to decide whether you have a right to live or whether you are obligated by State dictat to die instead of defending yourself. You are no longer a free citizen, in this case, but a subject of the State.

    That’s what the 2nd Amendment was all about. I suspect that the rambling 30-something art professor has never had to confront that question except in the abstract, while ensconced in secure, comfortable surroundings. Lucky man.

    That’s more like China using Roe v wade to justify aborting only girl babies.
