Which Guns Do They Want? All of Them

Fundraiser: Close to halfway there.

In the wake of tragedy, two gun-control advocates keep it real.

Dave Holmes at Esquire Magazine: Okay, Now I Actually Do Want To Take Your Guns.

At the end of a list of falsehoods and non sequiturs, the bottom line:
So now I’m angry. Now I’m finished trying to reason with you. So now I, a guy who was ambivalent about guns just a few years ago, want to take your guns away. All of them. I want to take them all and melt them down and shape them into a giant sphere and then push it at you so you have to run away from it like Indiana Jones for the rest of your lives. (…)
I want to end this thing once and for all, so that all of you who have prioritized the sale of guns over the lives of children have to sit quietly and think about what you’ve done. God help me, I want to take all of your guns out of your hands, by myself, right now. (…)
It’s happening. We tried it your way, and it really did not work. The ground is shifting. Get ready.

I really do appreciate the honesty of these two people and that of the thousands, perhaps millions, who are willing to co-sign in public to this desire.

Any fan of the TV series Firefly and the movie Serenity knows that the quest for a perfect world has consequences and, like feces, those consequences always roll downhill.

No person, group of persons or government can stop every single bad thing from happening into eternity. We can only reduce the chances of bad things happening using proven methods and, in a free republic that explicitly acknowledges the existence of individual rights in its constitution, those methods should be subordinate to individual freedom. Should be.

The gullible, however, believe that freedom includes freedom from bad things ever happening and freedom from bad people making bad things happen. These also believe that if we take away the tools used by people who do bad things, that such people will never again want to do said bad things, much less find new ways of doing those same bad things.

Thus, do the gullible believe that taking away guns from the entire American populace will permanently prevent incidents like Parkland, Santa Fe, Sandy Hook and so on. This reasoning is the
Old friend. Sad victim of a boating accident.
one that the Organized Left sells to the gullible, who, for some reason, think that guns emit Bad-Things Mind Control.

Of course, we know that, in response to mass gun confiscation, mass shootings, robberies, kidnappings, rapes, burglaries, gang warfare, etc. with targeting expanded to every home, school and business in the nation – except for those of the rich -- will explode, simply because bullied psychotic teenagers won’t be the only ones freed up by the reduced chances of being riddled with holes while committing, say, a home invasion robbery. There are dozens, maybe hundreds of street gangs and drug/human-trafficking cartels just salivating at the thought of a disarmed America.

And this leads to the true reason that the Organized Left wants us disarmed. 

It's this: any real attempt at confiscation will lead to a lot of death: of gun owners and of confiscators. And after that dies down – no pun intended – there will be only a terrorized remnant, beset on every side by tyrants, thieves, murderers, rapists and child molesters.

And that’s just in the government.

The Organized Left and its gullible minions don't really want to protect school children from mass shooters, because if they did, they'd be calling for controlled egresses in every public school -- something that has been the norm in inner-city schools for decades -- instead of whining about their sweet little darlings having to go to school in "prison-like" conditions. Dead white kids are the means to the end. (Black and brown kids were already disappearing fast enough for the OL -- mostly courtesy of their neighbors. Or their mothers.)

Remember, the Organized Left is always looking to shrink populations and almost everything they advocate leads to some version of early death for existent generations and/or nonexistence for future generations. Everything that happens before the endgame? Details.

They want to keep the physical targets soft, not to mention the mental and emotional ones.

Get ready, indeed.
