The End of Gun Control

Posted on April 18, 2013 11:00 am

Oh, man. We made Obama mad with voting down even his most water-downed gun bill. He scrunched up his little face, shook his tiny fist, and was all like, “Quack quack.” Which is the sound a duck makes. A lame one. And if you’re wondering why Obama got all mad about this and not about something like Benghazi, that’s because this wasn’t just some ambassador or other people he didn’t care about being killed — this was actually an attack on him! He stuck his neck out on this, and he couldn’t even get all the senators in his own party to go along. He looks like a complete doof, and the more he goes on about how this bill had 90% support, the more useless he makes himself look. Really you had a bill with 90% support — something pretty much unheard of — and you couldn’t even get all of your own party to go along? You must be the most ineffectual leader to ever hold the office, Obama.

But one amendment almost did get passed. We were only 3 votes shy of getting national reciprocity laws. Dang it.

So now that even watered down background checks bills won’t even get passed, can we finally admit gun control is completely dead as an issue and never coming back? And thus can you stop trotting out grieving families to pass useless laws that would have done nothing to prevent any of these tragedies? I mean, really, the more you gun control idiots stomp and gnash your teeth about this, the more you look like out of touch idiots. Everyone except you morons understand this background check law was useless — at its best, it would cost millions, inconvenience law-abiding gun owners, and maybe stop one or two really lazy, really stupid criminals from getting a gun. But to understand that, gun control proponents would actually have to look at these issues logically and rationally instead of just being emotional and constantly throwing hissy fits. I mean, look at Joe Scarborough going on about how this vote no rational person cares about is going to sink the GOP. Joe, you aren’t the reasonable one on this issue — and I know being the “reasonable one” is what you cherish above all thing — but you are now just an emotional idiot throwing a fit over a pointless law because you don’t take this issue seriously enough to actually deal with reality.

Fine, you anti-gun ninnies, keep throwing your little fits. As you can see from the recent vote in the Senate, we’re ignoring you now.

Well, except when we make fun of you. Like look at this NRA ad taking on Bloomberg’s nonsense:

If you gun control guys took this seriously at all, you’d actually first learn a thing or two about guns. But that’s been the problem in the gun debate: Only one side actually take this seriously. The other just likes to scream a lot. And even dead kids isn’t enough to make them sit down and finally think rationally about the subject. And that’s why the country left them behind.

    “And even dead kids isn’t enough to make them sit down and finally think rationally about the subject.”

    That old, “we must do SOMETHING, for the children!!!!” deal has produced lots of bad legislation and certainly ridiculous local school policy. But hey, it makes them FEEEEEEL good. Celebrities, I’m looking at you.

    Look for calls to end the sale of blackpower and reloading gun powder after the Boston bombings.
    Also, they will want to limit ammunition sales since the gunpowder could be removed and made into
    a bomb.

  3. Carpenter says:

    Gun Control is a Red Herring. Its just a way to draw attention away from Obama’s multitude failures. It is an empty promise. But be warned!! From now on every time someone is shot by a gun, even in a Democrat State, in a Democrat controlled City with a Democrat Mayor, a Democrat Police Chief and Democrat City counsel members, every time someone dies it will be the fault of the Tea Party, the Republicans and the Radical Right Wing (aka Christians).

    The weird thing in all this is that ‘WE the People’ will soon pass Joseph Stalin for total deaths. Seriously! America will overtake Stalin as the biggest murderer in History while Obama is in office. Maybe we should have a new National Holiday when this occurs. I can see it now. Millions of Abortion loving Democrats filling the streets shouting “WERE NO. 1. WERE NO. 1. WERE NO. 1″.

    Americans are without a doubt the stupidest people in history.

    Now all we need is New York’s ridiculous SAFE act to be overturned.

    It’s NEVER over for Liberals… They will continue to chop away forever until they get exactly what they desire. See, I’m old enough to recall the Gays (Liberals) telling everyone “they just want out of the closet”… How well has that worked out for us? Have you seen an episode of the freak show that is GLEE? This is where immigration. gun control and other leftist utopian dream will lead us all.

    The time to stand up a FIGHT is today.

  6. CrustyB says:

    The gun control debate is over but it served Obama’s purpose. It made us take our minds off Benghazi, high unemployment, the bad economy, his terrible foreign policies, etc.

    More than anyone else in the media, Frank, I think you are clear and succinct. There are others who hit the target but you’ve hit the bulls-eye:

    “And if you’re wondering why Obama got all mad about this and not about something like Benghazi, that’s because this wasn’t just some ambassador or other people he didn’t care about being killed — this was actually an attack on him! He stuck his neck out on this, and he couldn’t even get all the senators in his own party to go along. He looks like a complete doof, and the more he goes on about how this bill had 90% support, the more useless he makes himself look.”

    Profound.

    Excellent article.

    Abortion is not murder. There is no birth certificate. There is no death certificate.

    You know how you hate it when antis rant about semiautomatic assault weapon killing machines? Biologists hate it when you rant about babies/fetuses/embryos without knowing the difference.

    Roe V Wade was decided 40 years ago. It’s done. Get over it.

    Because if you don’t, you can’t complain about the antis trying to overturn Heller. You want their decision reversed, they want your decision reversed. Why not compromise?

  9. Jimmy says:

    Now, we surely must call for a ban against large-capacity pressure cookers!

  10. Frank J. says:

    Mike,
    I can’t tell if you’re being serious or silly? Abortion has been a back and forth battle over a moral issue which only got stoked by the Supreme Court decision. Views on guns, on the other hand, have only gone one way (towards further recognition of rights) for the past fifty years. Why in the world would one make a deal, “Will pretend Gosnell murdering infants is okay so you’ll make less specious arguments on guns.”? That would be rather craven.

  11. Son of Bob says:

    Yesterday, in Obama’s rant in the Rose Garden he addressed statements that he was using Newtown families as props. “Are they serious?” he asked, as Newtown families stood behind him as props.

  12. Son of Bob says:

    As for Mike the Troll…

    “Roe V Wade was decided 40 years ago. It’s done. Get over it.” Gun control was decided over 200 years ago. It’s done. Get over it. Gay marriage was decided over 2,000 years ago. It’s done. Get over it.

  13. Oppo says:

    Son of Bob is as succinct as Frank J. Well put.

  14. Iowa Jim says:

    Despiser is absolutely right. His examples are spot on. I’d add only that the fact that, when the iron curtain finally came down in 1989 and all the travel was from east to west, Communism should have been dead. Yet it isn’t.

  15. Rennyangel says:

    The Am . people and const. gov. won on guns. Now we need to win on immig. Simply enforce current law. Defeat the new giveaway of a near 1000 pages of whoknowswhat boobietraps, krap, and bureaucracy. Call Cong. 202-224/5-3121. And join Numerbs USA to save us from more illegals and more gov. oppression.

  16. macko says:

    Hey, I think the reciprocity part was a sucker play. The version I read stated that if you had a Concealed Carry License you could cary across state lines only if you first unloaded your weapon and put it in a locked box in your trunk.

    @Matt Musson
    with respect to black powder: up till now, progressives were at least willing to smile and pretend like they would leave us our muskets when they made guns illegal….
