Posts Tagged ‘gun ban’


Because of laws passed in New York, the AR-15 rifle was classified as an “assault” rifle and swiftly banned. However, this classification had nothing to do with the weapon itself. Thanks to the ignorance of lawmakers in New York who passed the SAFE Act, all of the banned features were purely aesthetic. To get around the stupidity, manufacturers have started producing remodeled AR-15’s that don’t have the fixed stock, pistol grip, or flash suppressor that made the gun illegal in the state.

Would hot pink make them feel safe?

The newly designed AR-15 looks more like a paintball gun without the usual features, but still provides gun owners in New York the same power and capabilities as any AR-15. The fact that these purely aesthetic features are what determines a gun’s legality is absolutely absurd. It all boils down to an irrational fear of a gun because it looks “mean.” The next anti-gun law New York legislatures invent should require all rifles to be painted hot pink so that they can feel “safe.”



Last week Michael Moore went on a tirade, “predicting” that the photos of the victims of Sandy Hook will be released, but the NRA will do everything in their power to prevent them from surfacing. He says that he wants these gruesome pictures of 7 and 8 year old children to be released. I can see him now, sitting there with his tiny hat and titanic jowls wobbling, with a menacing sort of glee as he says, “that’s the day the jig will be up for the NRA. It will be the day the debate on gun control will come to an end. There will be nothing left to argue over. It will just be over. And every sane American will demand action.”

What I find even worse is the way in which this walking slop bucket decided to begin this “call to action”. He starts his blog post with the story of Emmit Till, a black boy from Chicago who was murdered by white supremacists for flirting with a white woman in 1955. His mother let photos of his body be taken and published across the nation. Moore uses this story to compare the NRA to the white supremacists. He fails to mention that the NRA actually helped to arm the blacks in the south against the violent racists.

Moore goes on to say that by not banning weapons after Columbine we are all responsible for every mass murder since. He compares it to Eisenhower forcing Germans to march through the concentration camps that they lived beside to see the atrocities they had turned a blind eye to. He again fails to mention one detail, the holocaust would have never happened had “gun control” not been implemented beforehand.

The same man who is followed by a team of armed security guards at all times is also the same man who claims that we are living in a violent society and that “gun control” is the remedy. Moore says America is “a society that starts illegal wars, that executes criminals (or supposed criminals), that strikes or beats one of its women every 15 seconds, and shoots 30 of its own citizens every single day”. If the United States is shooting that many citizens a day you’d think we may have heard about it, but maybe he has the inside scoop. What he again fails to realize is that “gun violence” is not the cause of this “violent society”, it is only a symptom. Taking guns away (his remedy) from all law abiding citizens will do nothing to curb the violence, it will only make it easier for the ones who break the law. Gun control is a bit like NyQuil, it attempts to quell the symptoms of a cold but does nothing to fight the actual virus. He mocks those of us who want to protect the Second Amendment by saying:

“Most of us continue to say we “support the Second Amendment” as if it were written by God (or we’re just afraid of being seen as anti-American). But this amendment was written by the same white men who thought a Negro was only 3/5 human. We’ve done nothing to revise or repeal this – and that makes us responsible, and that is why we must look at the pictures of the 20 dead children laying with what’s left of their bodies on the classroom floor in Newtown, Connecticut.”

If it is so easy to toss aside one amendment what makes any other special? If we start surrendering our rights how can we get them back? I’ve never liked Michael Moore but after this crap I’ve now added him to my list of people I’d most like to punch in the face. I just can’t decide if he belongs in the second spot behind 0bama or in third behind Tom Brady. I’ll have to think about that one a while.
