I got this from my dad, who was also born in the former USSR and understands what it means to have a disarmed populace and an authoritarian government. He doesn’t like the idea of civilian disarmament either.
The link he sent me is an interesting conglomeration of photos posted by… ahem… people of questionable character on Facebook and other Internet sites. I say interesting, because it features an assorted collection of motley thugggz, some with their pants nearly around their ankles in an awkward representation of prison chic, wielding all sorts of weapons – all of which I’m guessing were not purchased legally.
But according to Uncle Joe, your “assault” weapon is the real problem, and all you have to do to ensure that you’re safe from thuglets such as this is negligently discharge a double barrel shotgun in the air.
So who is the problem here?
The girl involved in competitive shooting sports, whose rifle will likely be banned?
Or these thuglets?
Who do you think obtained the firearm legally, and which is more likely to commit a crime with it?
Whom do you find more threatening? This child being taught how to properly and safely use a rifle?
Or these guys?
And who do you think will be disarmed by the end of this battle? These young ladies?
Or these young… um… men?
In the end, I can tell you it’s not the thugs who will be disarmed.
