Antigun is more important than anticop

The same leftist news media that was screaming for defunding the police is deleting my comments that police should receive firearms training. Here is the deleted comment:

The Deputy who fired this shot should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There is no excuse for this sort of recklessly negligent horseplay. Since the sheriff seems to takeaway from this incident that the Deputy should have known the gun was loaded based upon how much it weighed, I would also suggest that the entire Sheriff’s department be forced to undergo a firearm safety refresher course. This incident is a sure sign that training is lacking and attention to firearm safety is not being taken seriously.
In this class, they can stress the four rules.

1 Treat all guns as if they are always loaded. (not just when they feel heavy enough to be loaded)

2 Don’t point a gun at anything you aren’t willing to destroy (including in jest)

3 Don’t put your finger on the trigger until ready to shoot.

4 Know what your target is, and what is behind it.
The life that is saved may be your own.

Why? Because leftists hate one thing more than cops- guns. They need to make this a gun death “If a well trained cop can make this mistake, an untrained civilian won’t do any better”

Sickening

Yahoo news says that the number of guns sold on Black Friday makes them sick. The shooting that they use to illustrate the issue was that of a 12 year old black child who was killed in Atlanta when two groups of “youths” (read as: Criminal Street Gangs) started shooting at each other.

The kid wasn’t “caught in the crossfire” he was an active participant, a street gang member himself. Don’t blame me and my guns because your criminal child is involved in gang activity.

“I tried, y’all. I called the police office almost 30 times in the last two years, and they told me they can’t do nothing. I said he’s out and breaking into these folks’ cars, can you please get him off the street,” Deerica [his mother] said.

Now mom claims he wasn’t actually *IN* the gang, but he was running around with other criminals, committing felonies. I suppose he wasn’t in the gang because he hadn’t paid his annual dues to the club?

EDITED TO ADD: Four days after Black Friday, we know exactly how many guns were sold. Three weeks after election day, we still don’t know how many votes were cast and for whom.

You Got Pwned, Bitches

The Utica, NY police department was having a gun buyback. A man identifying himself as “Kern” says he brought them 110 firearms that he 3D printed at his home, for which they paid him $21,000 in gift cards.

“I’m sure handing over $21,000 in gift cards to some punk kid after getting a bunch of plastic junk was a rousing success,” Kem said. “Gun buybacks are a fantastic way of showing, number one, that your policies don’t work, and, number 2, you’re creating perverse demand. You’re causing people to show up to these events, and, they don’t actually reduce crime whatsoever.”

Look Closely

As these 8th grade students show off their Glocks at their school graduation, look closely at the rear of the slides. They all have autosears. Gun control works.

Let’s recap the law failures:

  • 8th graders can’t legally own guns
  • 8th graders can’t legally carry guns
  • No one can legally have a gun at school
  • No one can legally have guns without a permit
  • No one can own Glocks with autosears
  • I am sure that none of these guns is stolen

but more laws will fix the problem.

Wow

I bet Canadians feel safe now.

Canada has also announced a mandatory gun confiscation. People who turn in guns will get money.

  • Turning in a Sig SG550 will get you $6200 Canadian. SG550s aren’t legally available at any price in the US.
  • An AR 15 will fetch $1337 Canadian ($1025 USD)

They claim that this is ‘fair compensation’ for weapons, even though this is likely anything but fair. It isn’t like you can refuse. An amnesty is in place until Oct. 30, 2023, after which you go to jail if you don’t take the deal.

ATF

The ATF needs two weeks to complete a gun trace. That, according to NBC, is just insanity. The ATF likes to blame this on the fact that they are not permitted to keep a registry of where all of the guns are. Any of us in the gun culture know that this is bullshit. How do we know?

The NFTR is a database of all NFA weapons: short barreled rifles and shotguns, machine guns, silencers, and AOWs. In short, a database that is supposed to be kept by the ATF of where every registered weapon in those categories is located. Dealers in those weapons are regularly inspected. ATF’s own inspectors reported to the Office of the Inspector General that 86 percent of the time, they find errors in the ATF database.

Of course, the point of the NBC article is that we must establish a nationwide firearm registry so we can make everyone safe. Did you know that last year, nearly 20,000 ghost guns were confiscated in criminal investigations around the country, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives? This sounds serious, right?

Except it’s misleading at best, outright bullshit at worst. ATF is including ALL weapons without serial numbers in its definition of “ghost gun” in order to make the problem sound worse than it is. Even so, the ATF traces half a million firearms every year. So the number of “ghost guns” being traced by ATF represents less than 4 percent of the total number of firearms being traced.

To make the article even more dishonest, CBS includes this picture of a confiscated firearm:

Ghost gun or not, this firearm is already illegal. It is a picture of what is either an SBR or an AOW. If you don’t know why I say that the ATF rules are arbitrary and stupid? Read this post.

Even when you DO comply with the law, the ATF will go to extraordinary lengths to put you away. There was a case where the ATF took a legal semiauto rifle, cut the welded FCG out of the rifle, and then replaced the entire FCG with a full auto FCG, which permitted the technician to fire it in full auto. They then prosecuted him for possession of an unregistered machine gun. The jury was not having it, and he was found not guilty. Imagine how much THAT cost in legal fees.
