    Lest You're Confused

    about what the anti's want:

    Amitai Etzioni: Gun Control? We Need Domestic Disarmament

    Written by a self-confessed Liberal:

    Liberals, when challenged with these facts, engage in a rhetorical maneuver. True, they say, our favorite (mini) bans will not solve the problem, nothing will, but we can, as Obama put it in his State of the Union address, at least "make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun." True, but the difference, unfortunately, will be marginal. Indeed, in many of the jurisdictions that have gun control laws of the kind that liberals typically call for -- and even in ones where the laws are stricter, still (Chicago, for instance) -- murder by gun is very common.

    A true liberal position, the place to start, is to call for domestic disarmament. That is the banning of the sale of all guns to private parties coupled with a buyback of those on the street (Mexico just moved to so control guns). Collectors can keep their guns as long as they remove the firing pin or fill the barrel with cement. Gun sports can be allowed -- in closed shooting ranges. And hunters can be allowed to have long guns (if they pass background checks) with no scopes, which are not sporting. But, these exceptions aside, liberals should call for a gun-free nation and point out the much lower murder rates and fewer deaths due to accidental discharge of fire arms found in those civilized nations where most guns have been removed from private hands -- and often even from those of the police.
    Don't try to be fancy. Shoot for the center of mass. The world is full of decent people. Criminals we can do without. -- Jeff Cooper (19202006)

    Wouldn't it be just great to live in this utopia? It would be nothing but sunny days, love and laughter. Disarming the population means that all bad guys will magically go *poof*.

    Amitai Etzioni is proud to announce that he just made the NRA anti gun enemy list. For more discussion see his book My Brother's Keeper.


    He needs another Ph.D in "Alternative Conflict Resolution in Non-Spherical Helical Structures Using Non-Parametrical Paradigms as a Base-Line Approach to Rwandan Ethnic Cleansing (Can the Lessons of Kosovo be Applied Synergistically in Africa?)"

    I'd read that too. I'm sure that would be a best seller. And the Bozo gets paid to spew that crap.

    I have always wondered why the anti's have so much lack of common sense. This doesn't answer that question but it does strengthen my belief that it is true.

    Antis are liberals.
    This is an extension of the theory that I have been working on proving.
    Most liberals are either highly educated or under educated.
    My theory says that "In most people education and common sense are inversely proportionate."

    As for the under educated they are generally at the mercy of the main stream media who are the highly educated.

    A very sad state of affairs for the Nation I am afraid. :(

    I used to be a subject of that "utopia" they so clamor for. It already exists, and they have very lenient immigration policies. I suggest these liberals take advantage of that and get the HELL out of MY COUNTRY, where I am a free man and will remain so to the death. This is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and may God DAMN those who speak against her.

    Back in the days of natural selection, people like Mr. whatever the heck country he is from wouldn't have made it past the age of puberty before either himself or someone else took him out of the equation nice and permanent like.

    Now, with all the touchy feely kumbaya types that have never had their tails kicked, we have to endure this highly educated drivel that makes the rest of us lose brain cells.

    Does anyone see a revolution in our future:
    People buying every gun that they can get their hands on
    Every store completely sold out of ammo
    Shows like doomsday preppers on main stream TV
    Internal fear mongering at an all time high; not fear of another country like China or Russia, but fear of ones neighbor
    This situation we are in will not end well; there will be a violent ending
    America this is our most desperate hour!!

    CARRY ON!
