Can’t We Just Pretend to Pass Gun Control to Make Dumb People Feel Safe?

Posted on December 18, 2012 1:00 pm

So people are acting pretty set on gun control, but all their ideas are things that do nothing but pester law abiding gun owners. Like the “assault weapons” ban or banning high-capacity magazines — which won’t actually be banned since they won’t confiscate what’s already out there. It will just make those things more expensive — hence annoying to gun owners like me. But apparently this gives a false sense of security to idiots since if you put the word “ban” on something, they think that means those things disappear.

So idea: Let’s just pretend to pass gun control. The people who most want it won’t know the difference between an actual law being passed and absolutely nothing being done, so can’t we just say we passed a bunch of laws and pretend everyone is safer? We’ll call it the “Super Deadly Gun Ban Act” and it will ban fully-automatic bolt action shotguns and armor piercing hollow points and any magically enchanted guns. And then all the dumb people will cheer, “We is safer!”

So it’s the same result as an “assault weapon” ban, but no enforcement costs and no petty intrusions on liberty. If people want useless things done to make us all feel safer, can’t we all just play along?

    As God is his witness, Obama will insure his people will finally be able to ride their unicorns safely, peacefully and gratefully. Or fake another tear trying.

    No reason to pussyfoot around.
    No Bushmaster 223s allowed in schools. Life in prison is the punishment.

    Next!

    I won’t feel safe until the quantity of gun powder in potato guns is limited.

  4. blarg says:

    I know – let’s just take all the gun laws already on the books, compile them into one giant, impressive document and “pass” them. Then Liberals have have a huge bill then can wave around with thousands of pages and everything will think “great! now mowing down a bunch of people with guns is illegal! YAY!”

    better idea – rather than going after inanimate objects, let’s have a “mass shootings ban”. I’d vote for that!

    Makes me want to go to Dicks, fill up my cart with about $3000 worth of stuff, then ask about guns, then tell them I’m not shopping there anymore because of their idiot kneejerk reaction.

  6. Professor Hale says:

    If they do manage to ban fully automatic bolt action shotguns, I’m going to want one. And Im going to want a case of those armor peircing hollow point cop killer bullets to go with it.

  7. spacemonkey says:

    Murder needs to be more illegal, maybe by adding a hefty fine or making it socially unacceptable.

  8. NO_MO_BAMA says:

    They should start by banning guns in high crime areas first, places like Chicago and Detroit and that place where that Obama guy lives. That way they can see how well it works.

    Funny how they seem to think banning 300 million guns is somehow possible but deporting 20 million Mexican invaders? That’s just not possible so there’s no point and even trying……

    “So people are acting pretty set on gun control…”

    See, that’s the problem. I’m not seeing many people who are “set” on gun control. The “mainstream” media narrative – meaning the Democrat narrative – is that people are demanding gun control, but the overwhelming sentiment ACTUALLY seems to be that teachers need to be allowed to take courses and get a concealed weapons permit if they so desire, and that we need to do away with the “defenseless victims” zones that liberals ironically label “gun free zones.”

    Gun sales have been on an INCREASE, not a decrease, the past four years, jumping again after Obama’s people used massive, uncontested voter fraud…umm, er…I mean, was re-elected.

  10. Son of Bob says:

    Incidentally, I always wondered who in their right mind would name a store “Dick’s” …now it makes much more sense.

  11. Mike in OH says:

    I like your idea, Frank. But how about we call it the “Super Deadly Gun Ban Act” and fill it with lowered tax rates and sweeping cuts to entitlements, subsidies, and government powers? The Democrats have already proven that they can’t be bothered with pedestrian pursuits like having to actually read bills–we have to pass the Super Deadly Gun Ban Act to find out what’s in it!

  12. Idahoser says:

    how many innocent lives must be sacrificed to gun control laws before we stop giving nannies authority?

  13. Writer says:

    Actually this one just might work.
    All of us who have dealt with the Libtards over the years knows that “feelings” are all important, and this should make them feel good. After all, it is better to feel good than actually be good, especially when the “being good” involves actual labor.

  14. CTCompromise says:

    I’m still waiting for the fertilizer ban which we were promised after Timothy McVeigh took down the federal building in Oklahoma City..or the Penske rental truck ban, for that matter..When is congress going to act to protect society from these deadly weapons ??!! Take away the guns, and a sociopath is still a lethal weapon.

  15. Dodsfall says:

    Hopefully all of my magically enchanted guns will be grandfathered in. They are hard to come by and expensive.

  16. Son of Bob says:

    Here’s a feel-good story for the folks that want to disarm innocent people. Seems this fella kidnapped his ex-girlfriend. The cops put him in jail, but then let him out. So, he went to her house and killed her and two others before killing himself. Good thing she didn’t have a gun or…umm, hey wait…maybe that would have been a good thing.

    OMG, three hogzillas worth of bacon to Mike in OH! There’s no time to waste. Just copy and paste the Grover Norquist pledge into the bill and get it passed.

  18. Steve G. says:

    When kids are real young you can take some of the toys they haven’t played with for months and give them to them again for Christmas or their birthday.
    Let’s do that with gun control.
    Take the thousands of gun laws already on the books, dust them off, with great fanfare pass them again.
    Liberals can then feel good for having done something, but without causing any additional harm.

  19. TheMostCowbell says:

    I used to think there was a limit to how much I could freaking love all of you. As it turns out, no – no there is not. This was such a refreshing blast of logic after all the Facebook screeching about, “Recent events make me FEEL things! Let’s please pass a lot of scary, unconstitutional laws based on those FEEEEELINGS!”

  20. TexEd says:

    Fine, but won’t we need waivers/exceptions for Holder’s people, illegal aliens, potential victims of domestic violence, inner city citizens of sufficient importance/wealth/influence who can afford to pay a Congressman’s “fee” for a waiver, Muslim terrorists who require banned weapons for religious purposes or union organizing activities?

  21. TheRandyGuy says:

    The fallacy and hypocrisy of passing laws to deter behavior is clear when these same libs demanding more/stricter “gun control laws” scream that the death penalty should be repealed because…. {wait for it}… it DOESN’T DETER CRIME.

    I want to meet Dick of Dick’s and ask him if he has any gum on him and if he blew bubbles when he was a kid.

  23. Jay says:

    A lot of gun crimes are committed by drug dealers and by people trying to steal money to buy drugs. So why not attack the problem from that angle? Let’s make it illegal to sell or use cocaine or heroin. We don’t need to pussy-foot around with restrictions and licensing and backgorund checks, just make it flat out illegal for anyone in the country to sell or use cocaine or heroin. That should immediately put all the drug dealers out of business. Then the problem of drug-related gun violence will also disappear.

    Enforcement should be simple: Just post signs all over the country that say “This is a drug-free country.”

    I can’t see any flaws in this plan, can you?
