Background checks give us NOTHING. No crimes will be prevented by banning me from loaning my rifle to my friend on pain of 5 years in Federal prison. It just takes us one step closer to being put on a government list.
The gun control argument is mostly smoke and mirrors. No one actually cares how many people get killed. The gun haters don’t give a damn about dead kids any more than they care about dead gang-bangers. The gun owners didn’t kill any of these people, so we refuse to be held accountable for the murders.
The gun control argument was never about guns, but always about control.
No one gives a crap about the crime rate. If the crime rate was infinite, I’d have a right to keep and bear arms. If it was zero, I’d still have a right to keep and bear arms. To the gun haters, if the crime rate was infinite, I would need to give up my guns to bring the crime rate down, and if it was zero, well then I wouldn’t need a gun, now would I?
Nope, it’s always been about keeping We The People from ever having the means to resist their collectivism.
That’s why I will never hand over my guns. I don’t exist by permission of the collective. I exist whether they like it or not. And if they object, I’ll be perfectly happy to shoot them until they either kill me or they stop objecting. But I won’t kneel to make it easier for them.
And it’s not even his first time as Felon in Possession. More like his fourth. And it looks like the first two had him serving his sentences concurrently. What is that, a sort of criminal “two for one” deal? He commits two crimes and only pays one time?
What’s the point of having laws at all if no one bothers to punish the offenders? The laws keep people like you and me in line, but the criminals, who are the people we are actually worried about, violate them and never get punished.
Yet the anti-gun people wonder why I carry a gun. They say I should be able to fight with my hands instead. How about they go 5 on 1 with a bunch of late teens to 20 somethings. I’ve got a gun so I don’t have to put up with that sort of foolishness.
So crazy woman with a knife or machete attacks someone, with a “three pronged garden tool,” runs next door and breaks in to a home where she is barred from entering due to her 50B order, gets tasered not once or twice, but three times, and continued to advance on multiple officers, one of whom shot her dead.
But you should count on non-lethal force to protect yourself while you wait for the police to sort things out for you. Never mind that it might not be a woman. Never mind that the attacker might not be alone. Never mind that the attacker might be more interested in harming you than in going next door. Never mind that you might not have time to get the cops on the phone, much less the cops to your home on time.
AN ACT to repeal a 1935 Durham county Local act concerning firearm registration.
The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:
SECTION 1. Chapter 157, Public‑Local Laws of 1935, is repealed.
SECTION 2. This act is effective when it becomes law.
My take: This repeals the law that permits Durham to force residents to register firearms. This bill was originally filed as a “blank bill” and was suddenly changed yesterday to repeal the registry. It passed the Senate today and is off to the House. I expect swift passage as Republicans are unlikely to support retaining the firearm registry in Durham.
My recommendation: SUPPORT
