Y’all remember LTC “Bob” Bateman, right? He’s the hotshot “violence-planner” who penned a cowardly, whining screed about his proposal to destroy the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, and proceeded to impugn the military service of legitimate veterans who questioned him and call others racist, homophobic names for calling him on his Constitutional ignorance.
Many, including me, have called him on his what can only be described as lack of mental capacity, but my buddy Mike Williamson, takes him to task like no other. Give a read. Yes, it’s that Mike Williamson, so you know it will be a fun read.
Moving on, then, to his cute theories of gun control, which aren’t worth dismantling, because they’ve been dismantled ad infinitum. It’s like the junior high kid who can tell you why physicists are wrong about the speed of light, Creationists who can tell you why physicists, astronomers, geologists, biologists and geneticists are all wrong about the age of the Earth, and the guy who wants to insist there’s no racism in America because he lives in an all white town and has never seen any. It’s crap.
However, his legal and historical interpretations are wrong. The Dick Act doesn’t say that. The Militia is defined in Title 18, USC, Ch 13, Sec 311, and isn’t what he claims. “Well regulated” had a definition then, and still has a legal definition, and the unorganized militia IS well-regulated. It doesn’t matter what Bob thinks about that process. He’s not in Congress, he’s not a SCOTUS Justice, and he’s an ignorant little fuck. I’m quite happy the facts offend him.
Now, apart from violating the Constitution he swore to uphold and defend, this has another problem: It is retarded. It’s also all crap we’ve heard before and laughed at. It’s like the guy in the parking lot telling you what a badass he is, and how he’s going to report you to the cops for taking his space.
That he had to give a lot of thought to this to come up with a retarded solution is not impressive.
What really gets me is that “Bob” spends a lot of time explaining how he’s an expert on violence, and leaning on his rank to bolster his nonexistent credibility on the issue, while oh-so-humbly claiming in a letter to someone who questioned his credentials on the Second Amendment issue, “LTC is not exactly such an exalted rank that one needs to stand upon it.”
Yeah? Then why are you using it, Bobby boy?
Mike excoriates this doucheweasel rather well, so go read.
