- Obama/Clinton etc. (and so-called “liberals”/”progressives”) are pants-shitting over gun-control. I’m not sure if any of them realize that this is doomed to failure: any attempt at “incremental” gun-confiscation utterly fails, in that it simply generates a “black market” utterly lacking in “background checks” and suchlike. For example: pretty much the whole “Gangsta” scene which has been going strong for 30+ years.
Any attempt at direct, full-on confiscation (like Brittain/Australia etc.) will also fail, in that it will INEVITABLY provoke a significant amount of “from my cold dead hands”-type resistance. That simply makes things infinitely worse: not only will they have to contend with Wahabbi radicals who want to burn “Western Civilization” to the ground and replace it with a “Global caliphate”, they will ALSO have to deal with every level of “principled” gun-owner, from the sane and reasonable self-defense folks, right on down to the dumbest/craziest NeoConfederate/”Militia” whacknut just itching for an opportunity to draw a “line in the sand”.
2. Meanwhile, the folks who are against gun-control are (stupidly) flocking to Trump –who may be a racist, misogynistic, pandering, staggeringly inept shit-sack, but — he pays lip-service to the 2nd Amendment, so…..yeah.
Seriously? The same guy who wants to build a border-wall (paid for by Mexico), and calls for a “total shutdown” of Muslims-as-such in the U.S., and all they can focus on is is lip-service to the 2nd amendment. That’s…..horrifying.
Speaking of that: how the fuck would a “total shutdown” of Muslims work, exactly?
I’m guessing Goober thinks that detecting Muslims is as simple as just asking them when they are at the point-of-entry. (Yeah — like a would-be jihadi wouldn’t just lie his ass off.
Further, assuming a “total shutdown” of Muslims entering the U.S.: what about the ones who are already here? WHO ARE ALREADY AMERICAN CITIZENS BY BIRTH?
What happens to them?
Revoke their citizenship? Make ’em where a special patch on their clothing (say, a crescent or something)? Hell — why not just herd ’em all into SPECIAL CAMPS (similar to what was inflicted on Japanese-Americans during WWII:
As I said, the aftermath of this whole fiasco has been ABSOLUTELY PREDICTABLE so far.
(Almost as if it were…..scripted?)
