Which is, of course, to quit digging. We’re talking of course of Diane “Unreloadable Magazines” DeGette, who our very own LC Crunchie so expertly mocked not but a few days ago.
No, it’s not about her spokes-retard letting us all know that the learned representative didn’t actually mean to say “magazines” but “clips” when she talked about something that was impossible to reload (wait? You can’t reload a clip? Surprise to us!) which, on its face, is utterly ridiculously false as not a single one of the gun-grabbing useless cunts know the first thing about either, much less the differences between the two.
No, we’re talking about her relentless attempts to make a further idiot of herself by publishing, with help we’re sure, the following dreck at the Puffington Host, an outlet sufficiently immersed in Teh Stupid™ to still let her speak in public. Or maybe they’re just sadists in which case: Well played, very well played indeed.
As Congress prepares to consider legislation to address gun violence,
Actually, addressing actual gun violence, unless noting its existence is considered an address, is just about the only thing that the relentless attempts of Congress to nullify the Second Amendment have so far failed spectacularly to do.
this week was a disturbing reminder to those of us leading that fight that after all these years the gun lobby will rely on its playbook of personal destruction to viciously attack any supporter of common-sense gun safety legislation.
Did we just read a ProgNazi “everybody who disagrees with us is a racist, misogynist, child-molesting, extremist, terrorist mass-murderer because SHUT UP!” dimwit decry the use of personal destruction to discredit your ideological opponents? Did we? Oh sweet foot-tapping Jove, we believe that we did.
Never mind that you’re speaking out your twat, the only thing you’ve been met with so far is the simple factual observation that you’re about six dozen steps on the evolutionary ladder below paramecium, hearing somebody whine about being faced with the same tactics that their side has been using indiscriminately for a century is just so chock full of irony and delicious schadenfreude that we may just have wet ourself with laughter.
As I’ve learned in two decades of work on these issues,
You mean to suggest that you’ve actually learned something? Do tell.
the gun lobby will take every opportunity to intimidate, and to attempt to silence, anyone with the courage of conviction to stand up and fight to keep our families safe.
Our Imperial Panties are moistening at the sound of your singular courage in the face of mockery.
This week, the founder of the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners Association, Dudley Brown, told NPR that it was “time to hunt Democrats.” Brown, a leading voice against gun violence prevention, apparently sees nothing wrong with physically threatening the lives of members of the political party with whom he disagrees. It may be straight out of the playbook the gun lobby has used for decades, but that makes it no less outrageous.
Actually, it’s more out of the playbook of your side, who have made no attempts to hide the fact that they’d rather see everybody who disagrees with them dead. We all recall fondly how the unions repeatedly let your master, Ogabe, know how they were his army to command, just to name one example.
The one difference is that when our side, jokingly, says something like what Mr. Brown allegedly said, it’s easy to determine that it was a joke. Why? Because if we meant it, every single one of you fascist motherfuckers would be dead already. We have the training and the weapons. Your only protection is that we’re so damn reluctant in going off because otherwise… Keep that in mind.
Now the gun lobby has set its sights on me.
Man. You are a true monument to personal courage! Forget about the Ardennes, Valley Forge, Guadalcanal, D-Day, you name it. They all pale compared to your determination to stand up to personal mockery! We are not worthy!
Since my time in the Colorado state legislature 20 years ago, I have worked on gun safety issues. In 1998, I introduced my first bill to ban high-capacity magazines.
Or, as they’re known among the literate, “standard capacity magazines.”
My colleague Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (NY-4) and I have introduced a similar bill, the Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act, in this Congress.
And thus “high capacity magazines” became “large capacity ammunition feeding devices”. Do we the people pay you by the word, or are you just naturally ignorant?
We are working hard to include our bill in comprehensive gun safety legislation being considered now because, while we will never be able to stop every disturbed individual from going into a school or a movie theater or a shopping mall and shooting people, we can limit the number of rounds in a magazine and give the people in their sights a fighting chance.
By taking away their fighting chance, because… Oh fuck it, we don’t know.
Rather than debate me on the merits of this common-sense proposal, the gun lobby has decided to distort remarks I made at a recent forum in Denver to attack me personally.
“Distort” meaning, as is the usual case with ProgNazi Liberal Fascists, “quoting verbatim stupid remarks of a ProgNazi Liberal Fascist.”
After the forum, opponents of my bill intentionally mischaracterized one phrase from my remarks, spreading half-truths to mobilize their on-line allies.
They quoted you, word for word, from what blitheringly idiotic wordfucks tripped out of your pie hole, you dripping cunt. We mean, really? You were quoted from a publicly available video. Just how good of a “tactic” would that be if the quotes did not, in fact, correspond precisely with the driveling dumbfuckery that your addlebrained self regurgitated into the microphone?
And, moreover, every single site that we’ve seen mocking your mental deficiencies, including this one, have, along with their mockery, included the video itself or a direct link to it. Just how much of a fuck-for-brains liberal would you have to be to include proof that you’re “misrepresenting” somebody right alongside your “misrepresentation?”
This is what they do and what they have done for decades to distract the public conversation from the critical issue of reducing gun violence. And this week they employed these tactics to undermine my high-capacity magazine ban.
The gun lobby wants to divert the public’s attention from the fact that a high-capacity magazine ban would reduce the number of magazines in circulation, simply because they would no longer be available for lawful purchase. If Congress passed a high-capacity magazine ban, disturbed individuals like the Aurora shooter would not be able to purchase a 100-round magazine through a few clicks on a website, or buy a 30-round magazine at their local sporting goods store.
No. He’d have to do what every other criminal does. Get it the honest way by stealing it. Meanwhile, individuals not similarly inclined to disregard the laws of civilized society, we sometimes call them “law-abiding citizens” or “innocents”, the people that you purport to “protect”, would be left at a distinct disadvantage when facing their more thoroughly armed foes.
While those who currently own high-capacity magazines would be able to keep them and use them if they wished, they would not be able to purchase new high-capacity magazines. The availability of these assault magazines to criminals and the mentally ill would thus be greatly reduced over time.
While we’re at it, let’s introduce another equally retardedly ignorant term to the English language: Assault stupidity. You have it. In spades.
And whereas your argument, if it weren’t for the irritating tendency of reality to get in the way, might have merit inasmuch as the murderous swine in our midst would actually have to exercise 4th grade shop skills in order to manufacture higher capacity magazines and we’ll assume, for the sake of argument, that every murdering psychopath is as terminally dumb and inept as a ProgNazi Liberal Fascist, there are so many of those “assault magazines” in circulation right now and it takes only one maniac to start a massacre that it would take, quick estimate here, approximately until the death of the universe until there were so few of them left that one solitary determined psychopath couldn’t get his hands on one.
A high-capacity magazine ban will not stop an individual intent upon doing harm,
At which point every living organism with an IQ in double digits asks itself: “Then what’s the point?”
but would give those victims in their sights a fighting chance when the gunman has to stop and reload.
It would? Interesting that. Those victims would, of course, be people not willing to break your “common-sense” gun laws, so they clearly wouldn’t have access to the “assault magazines” that you’re so “common-sensically” fulminating against. Best case scenario, their fighting chance would be no different from the time when they had the same access that a criminal had.
As an Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) agent with whom I work frequently says, “a high-capacity magazine ban would go a long way to taking the ‘mass’ out of ‘mass shooting’.”
That would be the same ATF that is most well-known for having handed over a few thousand actual “assault weapons” (select fire weapons) to Mexican drug cartels, causing at least hundreds of innocent deaths, right? Well who are we to doubt the expertise of such unimpeachable defenders of all that is good and right?
That’s why this bill is so important and that’s why the gun lobby is fighting it so hard. As poll numbers continue to show strong public support for a high-capacity magazine ban,
Where, exactly? Link, please? Not that it matters. The Constitution at no point states that its provisions are contingent on the outcome of polls on MSNBC. If your public support is so massive, then how come that Harry “Child Molester (we heard it, so we don’t need to offer any proof)” Reid can’t find 40 votes among 55 Liberal Fascists to support it? What are they worried about?
The high-capacity magazine ban is a reasonable and common-sense step towards preventing these massacres.
Prove to us how it will in any way prevent massacres by people who don’t respect such bans in the first place and we might, might be able to have an intelligent discussion.
Once you evolve to sentience, that is.
