Another gun control celebutwit flaps her soup coolers

Nora Dunn, a one-time comedic actress on Saturday Night Live, has taken to one of the media outlets that regularly allow celebutwits to rant incoherently about subjects they know little about. And it proceeds pretty much as you’d expect.

We have seen what has happened in states with Stand Your Ground laws, which has been a disaster and seems to have given mostly white people the freedom to shoot mostly black people. But putting that aside, if your weapon is going to save your life, you must have it at the ready, loaded, and a few feet from you if not on your person. In the case of George Zimmerman, that worked, accept he killed an innocent, unarmed teenager. But he was acquitted of all responsibility at trial, and gun devotees supported him.

Cue the “gun owners are white, male racists’ card.

We don’t have laws that protect children from armed parents and automatic weapons that fall into the hands of wildly insane people. Not effective ones.

Apparently, somebody is unaware of our system of laws.

What the NRA has done is sold America a bill of goods, goods that don’t require any safety oversight. Gun manufacturers in America get off scot-free when it comes to safety concerns. Safety manufacturing laws are left to the makers of blenders and autos and cribs and power tools. When auto makers screw up, they pay millions in fines and are taken to court. Not gun manufactures, though. They have immunity and they are first people we should go after.

Blather, blather, blather. Ms. Dunn has been sold a bill of goods by the gun control industry, with lies that firearm manufacturers are not liable for product defects and death and injuries caused by them. She, like so many others, aren’t intelligent enough to grasp the fact that the firearm industry, like every other industry….is protected from frivolous lawsuits designed as punitive tantrums by aggrieved parties, if someone takes a lawful item and uses it in a criminal manner. Her idiocy is simply astounding.

To achieve real protection from assault weapons, Americans have to give them up. We have to ban them along with magazines clips that fire bullets worthy only of a war zone.

No Statist screed is complete without invoking the undefinable “assault weapon” scare tactic. But if her ppnt were valid, she would still be unable to explain why are civilian law enforcement agencies are equipped with such “weapons of war”.

The spirit of the second amendment never meant for assault weapons to be in the hands of everyone, nor used against children in a classroom.

Muskets were the “assault weapon” of their day, and she makes this asinine claim without any substance to back it up…..par for the course.

All guns could have serial numbers, but they don’t.

Name a firearm that doesn’t. Thought not.

We could install safety latches on hand guns to protect children but that went nowhere because of the gun lobby.

Every new handgun is provided with a trigger lock. Every. Single. One.

No one ought to have the right to manufacture and sell weapons of mass destruction to anyone other than the military, and those weapons should not be able to leave a military base under penalty of law.

There’s really no response for this level of utter intellectual deficiency. One could discount her as a washed up comedian and relegate her ignorance to the trash heap where it belongs….but this sort of willful perfidy is the stock and trade of the gun control industry and their enablers in Congress and the media.

I often ask those in the gun control camp…..but ever get an answer…..why do you let these sort of intellectual midgets speak for you? Why do you accept ignorance and fallacy to be the currency of your movement?


Leftist America, your CinC lies to you

Why do you accept it? Why do you abet it? They think you’re stupid….are you?

Barack Obama

“The gun lobby is loud and well organized in its defense of effortlessly available guns for anyone,” Obama said.

Name a 2A/civil liberties group that advocates for violent felons and the mentally ill to legally own firearms. Name one, you Statist prick. Thought not. Continue to rely on the invention of the “gun show loophole”….at least that entertains us who know better.

The President of these United States thinks his supporters are idiots. And they lap it up….too intellectually stunted to realize it. What other issue would the herd of leftist sheep so willingly rely solely on the advocacy PR of utter ignorance?

Well, that’s gotta hurt….


From – Poll: After San Bernardino attacks, American concern about terror threat rises

Support for a nationwide ban on assault weapons has dropped over the past five years, from 63 percent in January 2011 to 44 percent today. For the first time since 1994, more Americans oppose (50 percent) a nationwide ban on assault weapons than favor one (44 percent).

How much longer is the gun control industry going to claim to speak for the American people, with their stable of 20 year old, poorly worded polls?

Obama on the verge of closing a non-existant “loophole”?

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s advisers are finalizing a proposal that would expand background checks on gun sales without congressional approval.

White House adviser Valerie Jarrett says the president has asked his team to complete a proposal and submit it for his review “in short order.” She says the recommendations will include measures to expand background checks. – AP

Again, aside from an executive action which would have had zero effect on most of the recent “mass shootings” [making it an emotionally driven act, so we feeeel better], there’s still no explanation of how a universal background check law would be enforced.

As I’m sure I’ve written before, I don’t have a fundamental problem with requiring NICs checks for all purchases at a gun show, since the venue is essentially one large storefront operation….but you’ll notice that gun control proponents never use the actual verbiage of what they propose. They frame their goal as if it were an aberration to be repaired, even using it only in the context of gun shows…….instead of what it actually is: a regulation and taxation of transfers of a lawful item between private citizens. Oh, I know that “gun show loophole” also rolls off of the tongue easier….but look at their choice of words very carefully. In all of the text contained in the screeds of gun control opportunists, they never refer to their proposed action for exactly what it is.

Lastly, ask yourself……when the next “mass shooting” occurs, after universal background checks become law by executive fiat……what will be their next move?

Make no mistake…..they mean to disarm the citizenry. Proclamations to the contrary are refuted by their very actions.

Volokh takes on the “assault weapon” myth

After explaining to the uninformed, the nature and definition of several maligned components of these rifles, Eugene Volokh summarizes aptly:

If I’m right on this, then banning assault weapons is likely to have as little effect on mass shootings as banning whiskey would have on drunken driving. Even if we concluded that drunk drivers were disproportionately drunk on whiskey, banning whiskey would just mean that the drunk drivers will shift to vodka, gin, tequila or other alcoholic beverages that are just as dangerous as whiskey. The same is true for the so-called “assault weapons.”

The gun control lobby cannot explain their own proposals

* As expected, even after asking the following question of me: “I’m extremely interested in the logical train of thought behind the positions of someone who supports the poll tax rhetoric.”….to which I obligingly answered, the proprietor of the misnomered anti-gun blog “commongunsense” has decided to not make my reply visible. So of course, I’ll just leave it here:

Constitutional Insurgent says: Your comment is awaiting moderation.
I’ll gladly oblige. The proposed taxes on firearms and ammunition are in excess of excise and sales taxes, and designed as a punitive measure to dissuade citizens from purchasing firearms. As to paying for NICs checks… would be instructive if you actually explained the enforcement mechanism for said law, before proceeding with by it is equal to a poll tax. That ball is still in your court.
Why do you support taxes on the exercise of your Constitutional rights? These are not State privileges.

Intellectual cowardice. No surprise there. And they wonder why their submissive fealty to the State doesn’t get more legislative [not to mention advocacy group membership] traction.


I’ve been engaged in a [generally] respectful conversation with the opposing camp at “Commongunsense“, in which I’ve tried to have the gun control advocate explain not only their general support for “universal background checks”, but specifically… said law could/would be enforced. The opposing camp merely offered citation of the law and the penalties. And only that again, when pressed. He/she was utterly unable to explain how a transgression of a UBC law would be enforced.

My point in part: without the State knowing who owns which firearms, said State cannot truly enforce a law that requires private sellers to seek out and pay for a NICs check. So I’m left wondering why it is so important for some to support legislation that is nothing more than an honor system.

Most of you will understand where I was going with this. Since the gun control industry has publicly stated, on numerous occasions, that their strategy was incrementalism……we know full well, that a UBC among private transactions, is un-enforcable without a distinct component. Thus, when criminal shootings continue to occur…as criminals will always be able to obtain a firearm….the call will be for the only method to enforce a bad law….registration. The proprietor of “Commongunsense” likely knows this, and all but halted the conversation on this line. But we know better.

Since the gun control industry is composed largely of the left, I found it curious that the radical liberals of decades past, have thoroughly morphed into the very entity they were standing against…..totalitarian statism.

I began to start listing what the gun control industry appears to believe, based upon their statements and actions, to illustrate the obvious deficit of logic, but I’ve decided to make that it’s own post….as, quite obviously….said list would make this an enormous post.

Coming soon.

San Bernadino: Leftists waving the bloody shirt

4 minutes after CNN broke the news of the shooting in San Bernadino….4 minutes…..Presidential candidate and former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley tweeted:

Horrifying news out of . Enough is enough: it’s time to stand up to the and enact meaningful gun safety laws.

This political whore wasted no time in politicizing a tragedy….pissing on the still warm corpses of an unknown number of civilians, to pursue his own goals of citizen disarmament.

Illinois HoR doesn’t understand the 2nd Amendment


WHEREAS, Gun violence is an ever present problem in the  State, as well as nationwide; an example of which is 8 persons dying in Chicago in one week in October due to gun violence; and . . .

Followed by not only a complete misunderstanding of the 2nd Amendment and the writings of the framers behind it [informed largely by the various state constitutions]….but also a sad tantrum at the alleged ‘partisanship of five SCOTUS judges. Apparently ignorant of the same sort of partisanship of the four SCOTUS judges that they agree with.

Specifically, there is no indication that the Framers of the Amendment intended to enshrine the common-law right of self-defense in the Constitution.”

The entire premise behind the Amendment is to protect the pre-existing natural right of self defense. Part of that natural right is the ability to form and arm a militia to oppose State tyranny.

Idiots. But at least they feel better. That’s what counts…..

The Return of the Poll Tax

From TTAG: “Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle officially announced today her intention to pass the county’s first round of ammunition taxes during this Friday’s county board meeting,” the Illinois State Rifle Association reports. Yup, you read right: this is only the first poll ammo tax planned for Cook County. “This initial tax will slap a penny a round on rimfire ammo and a nickel a round on centerfire ammo. According to Preckwinkle, the tax is being levied on gun owners in order to ‘…improve public safety.’” Ammo tax revenue will go  towards unspecified “public safety programs.”

Wonderful…….the county with one of the most restrictive regime of gun control laws, now decides to tax the citizens ability to exercise a Constitutional Amendment….and not just that, but to funnel the proceeds into a vague slush fund.

Can’t legislate your control….litigate. Can’t litigate your control…tax.

Petulant Little Pissants

Pre-election feuding over gun control took a bitter turn Thursday as Gov. Terry McAuliffe told a Republican state senator to “man up” over a perceived online threat from gun-control advocate Andy Parker, who later apologized after it was revealed he posted a Facebook comment threatening the senator with a beating.

In a radio appearance on Richmond’s WRVA Thursday morning, McAuliffe said state Sen. Bill Stanley, R-Franklin County, was pulling a “political stunt” by making a report to the Capitol Police over a harshly worded online comment from Parker. Parker’s daughter, WDBJ journalist Alison Parker, was gunned down by a former co-worker in August during a live report from Smith Mountain Lake.

On Wednesday, Stanley contacted police and obtained an application for a concealed-carry permit after Andy Parker sent him a Facebook message that said: “I’m going to be your worst nightmare you little bastard.”

McAuliffe said to Stanley:

“Come on Bill, you’re tougher than that,” McAuliffe said during his radio appearance. “Man up. Come on. This is ridiculous.”

Parker likewise posted to Stanley: 


Issuing a threat of harm is a Class 6 felony under Virginia criminal laws, which carries with it a penalty of 1-5 years in prison.

Why are gun control pawns activists so violent?
