Not Compromise

Twitter rando wants firearm registration, annual license to own and carry, insurance, and universal BG checks. Says he is OK with national reciprocity of CCW as long as each state gets to determine where and how you can carry.

I said no way. Registration is only used to facilitate confiscation and states would simply make everywhere off limits to CCW. I’m not falling for that, because the gun control side doesn’t deal in good faith.

I don’t need national CCW. SCOTUS just did that for me. It’s coming.

This was his response:

So what do you propose that would lower gun violence in America? I’ve tried to meat in the middle but you only get to “I won’t”. If you don’t have a reasonable suggestion and aren’t looking for one, what is your point?

My answer:

We don’t punish people for laws they haven’t broken. Gun control isn’t the answer. That is my point. We don’t have a gun problem, we have a mental health and criminal gang problem.

“Meet in the middle” isn’t you take some of my rights now, and return later to take more. That isn’t compromise. With compromise, both sides get something. If you get what you want, what do gun owners get? What are you willing to give up?

Him:

The thing we would both “get” is the security of knowing we can go out without being shot. I’m not trying to get anything besides that? What do you think the end game is?

I replied:

Stats don’t lie. If you aren’t a gang banger, drug dealer, or planning suicide your odds of being shot are less than dying in a fall involving ice-skates, skis, roller-skates or a skateboard.

The end game? Gun controllers want all guns illegal. That merely grants power to the strong over the weak. I refuse to be at the mercy of others.

Want to lower gun violence? Prosecute the violators that survive the self defense shootings. Bring back the death penalty, without a decades long wait to execute (intended) the sentence.

Ding ding. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

When they start actually addressing the crime, via punishing the criminals, I’ll pay attention to them.

Until then, they can pound sand.

This twatter dado is just another histrionic pussy (and arguing in bad faith no less) who wants his safety guaranteed. Guess what moron, no can do. Life=risk. His stupid ass could slip getting out of the shower and die of blunt force trauma to the head when his empty skull hits the edge of the toilet bowl.

If he wants guranteed safety, he should just klll himself now. Can’t get hurt if he’s dead and buried. Everyday he goes on breathing is another oppprtunity for something bad to happen to him, and clearly he (and scores of others like him) just can’t handle that.

“Common-sense gun laws”??

1. Like doing away with “gun-free zones” (read about Suzanna Hupp and the loss of her parents at Luby’s Cafeteria, Killeen TX, 1991 and her prevented ability to correctly handle the situation).

2. like doing away with “immediate threat of life-threatening violence” and requiring the woman to file restraining orders versus “If I can’t have you, no one can” BANG! (should be the ONLY response)

3. Like doing away with “immediate threat of life-threatening violence” versus “gee, you have a nice business here, be a shame if it burned” BANG!! (should be the ONLY response).

4. Like charging a young man who defended himself against a mob and 3 specific individuals who targeted him versus saying “good shoot, 3 felons off the street”

Want me to go on??

Suzanna Gratia Hupp was a chiropractor. She had left her gun in the car while having lunch at Luby’s with her parents. She could have lost her license to practice if she were found carrying concealed.

After the shooting, Dr. Hupp ran successfully for the Texas legislature where she was instrumental in passing the Texas concealed carry law.

I was newly married and living in Killeen at the time. My wife worked in the marketing department at the local hospital. They were taking her new boss out to lunch for Boss’s Day and someone suggested they go to Luby’s. Fortunately, the new boss said “We eat in the cafeteria every day. Let’s go get Mexican.”

They NEVER address the Criminal or just licking these animals up till death. Better yet just put’em down.

It’s ALWAYS “The Gun.” Always.

Hell, I’m preachin to the choir.
Happy 4th !

So what do you propose that would lower gun violence in America?

Tell doctors to stop prescribing SSRIs to young men with unstable family situations, whose parents won’t monitor the boy to make sure he takes all of his doses on time.

“So what do you propose that would lower gun violence in America?” is logically the same as “how many rapes would it take before you castrate yourself?”

The only thing both are doing is punishing people who didn’t commit the crime.

As others have said, if you want to stop “gun crime” lock up the people who commit them, not the innocent bystanders.

Resume capital punishment, irrevocably and mandatorily, 1 year after any conviction for murder. Including while in prison.
Driving recidivism to zero for that population would stop more crime pro-actively than even handing out M1911 .45s at high school graduations would.
(FTR, I’d be in favor of both approaches.)
As an added bonus, our prison population would shrink the number of incarcerated hardcore serial offenders nearly overnight that way, which would be another pointless stat the Left is always yapping about cluelessly.

But I’m guessing rando Internet Idiot is clueless about Lawdog’s Cake Analogy too, which is how you know you’re dealing with a confirmed ‘tard.

I notice he dodged the question of “what would you give up” by moving the goal posts.
The thing we would both “get” is the security of knowing we can go out without being shot.

Rando says compromise yet offers none, shocking! I hear it all the time, makes me think that they have newspeaked the word so they can then use it to claim our position is unlike theirs. But no, the position I hold makes that argument falter. Not only will I not compromise, I want my shit back! NGA, GCA, Miller, Hughes, Brady, all of it.
In the spirit of compromise, of course.

They want to take all of your guns. You say no. The compromise then, is that they only take half of your guns. Next year, they want to take what is left, you say no. So they “compromise” and only take half of them. Wash, rinse, repeat.
They aren’t interested in compromise. What they want is incrementalism.

DM, my point exactly. Only difference, I am not going to play.

Pass any stupid law they want to. I am not playing. Taking my (musket) ball, and going home. Consent has been withdrawn.

Happy Independence Day, brother!

A long-time friend and I were talking and the subject of protecting your household came up. There had been several break-ins in a ‘hood near where he lives. He said “I couldn’t keep a gun in the house … my wife is afraid of them.”

Right then, I realized I couldn’t admit to him how fearful I was of my 20V drill/driver. Every time I pass it on the shelf, it stares at me with bad intent. I hope the local police have a buy-back on them some day and I can finally rid our household of the menacing tool.

We have a similar problem at work here.

Management has decreed we cannot carry pocket knives, yet we are entrusted with power tools and heavy machinery.
