national systems for vetting both potential gun owners and existing gun owners”. You mean like criminal Background check that already exist? Things that are done every time you purchase a gun. How far should said vetting go? Forced mental health check? I do not ignore well regulated … I simply have read things from far more intelligent people than myself that have outlined what that phrase meant in the time it was written . Well regulated meant at that time functioning properly . We the people are the militia. I am going to agree both civilians and military should be allowed the same arms with in a bit of reason.
Your main issue about guns is that criminals have them . Most if not all legal gun owners are fine people a small minority of them might snap one day and shoot up a place it horrible it happens but the solution to that issue is not to punish all other legal gun owners.
I am dropping my hyperbole for a bit. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” You miss the prat the right of the people in this clause We the People comprise the afore mentioned militia. We are well regulated via not being violent felons nor what at the time the founders would consider criminally insane /mentally defective.
You may well twist my words to say I am insulting people with mental illness no . Plenty of people with mental illness are non violent a small minority are violent same small minority that typically wish to harm others during a mass shooting. No sane normal person wakes up wanting to just shoot innocent people. That is crazy and violent. I can say most gun owners should get some sort of training ie gun safety class and some other training. I do not think that should be a law / further restriction. I have taken many classes . I retake a class on gun safety every time I have to get recertified for cpr ie every 2 years . What you do not know is this gun owner who always carries a means to take a life if I have to also carries a trauma kit to help a person who was shot or has other puncture type trauma until medics arrive . You are very free to hate guns and think owning guns is bad … What you do not have the right to do is demand others give up said rights to curb your fears of mass shooting. The solution to gun violence is not to make it harder for good people to arm themselves . You only want to highlight the bad that can be done with guns … What about the defensive uses of guns do they mean nothing. You can use the oh think of the kids or whatever as a way to push your anti gun views but they just will not work on me. Them dying to gun violence should not strip me of my right to bear arms
Ok this one is gonna start off with some personal stuff from my past …. I was a victim of both mental and Psyical by women in my life one was my mother the other was a hospital worker . As a man who has lived through abuse I know how hard it is to get help for such things as a man since we usually are just assumed the abusers and never anything else. Now onto the issue at hand Amber came out during the divorce claiming Dep abused her even posting images of marks on her face [Likely self inflicted or makeup ] Johnny was smeared by the media because we are supposed to believe all women no matter what ,Now this Audio comes out with her admitting to starting the fights / abuse and that Johnny was more than likely a victim of hers . She admits to hitting him several times and seemingly gives him Xanax and alcohol to get complance out of him . It alleged that her or one of her friends shit on his side of the bed. This woman is held up as a champion of woman and a figure head in the #Metoo Movement , Her action of throwing a glass bottle at him led to him losing part of one of his fingers . Yet still she is somehow portrayed as a victim in all this by the feminist media . If I had my way the proper justice in this case would be to Lock Amber up in a all male cell with some real Abusers for a day or so then Transfer her broken ass to a Female prison and lock her up with the worst of the worst female violent criminals for the rest of her life without any medical care.Johnny Depp X Amber Heard – FULL AUDIOS | AMBER CONFESSIONWonder if the Stunning and Brave male feminist will defend Ambers actions and false claims
Economic Left/Right: 5.13 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.23
I am a Nationalist but not a race supremacist I think the society / culture of America is best. I am pro legal immigration , Providing the immigrants have valuable skills to my country or society .
I am pro decriminalizing all drugs , Using that money to help with treatment for addicted people and education of young people to know real dangers of certain drugs.
I am also pro gun ownership for all non violent felons. I think all adults who wish to own / carry a firearm should take training classes in proper use and or gun safety. I am against national gun registries or license for ownership / carry.
I am not pro tax payer funded college nor healthcare. Neither are human rights in my opinion. 1 Currently college is more or less expensive adult daycare with ideological brainwashing . Most people do not need a college degree . Most people can go to technical schools and get well paying jobs. Also with how prolific the knowledge on the internet is one can learn most things on their own.
His Supercilious views on guns or even self defense are Arsine but he is a UK bootlicker so he thinks only the state should have the means to protect its citizens . He thinks actual citizens have no right to protect themselves. By his failing logic Fire alarms Security systems or even Fire extinguishers should not be legal for private Citizens
—- Another Leftist Has an Epiphany on Guns I’m (unfortunately) not a rich person, but that doesn’t stop me from opposing punitive taxes on successful entrepreneurs, investors, and small business owners. Likewise, I’m not a gun aficionado, but that doesn’t stop me from opposing efforts to restrict the rights of law-abiding people to own and bear arms. In part, […]
The predictions are that if Biden does NOT win, and win by a large majority, the riots and looting we have seen so far will be far surpassed in numbers, violence, and area. That is truly frightening. Nineteen million gun purchases have occurred in the first six months of 2020, and 95 % of those […]
https://coalitionofthebrave.wordpress.com/2021/03/30/anti-freedom/ Darth the anti gun anti freedom leftist Who wants UK Germany and even Japan style gun laws forced upon the American gun owners . He also thinks like most far left clowns that shall not be infringed is meaningless because Well regulated Militia is in the Second Amendment despite being told by me at least 20 times that Well regulate at that time simply meant properly functioning. The Amendment verbatim The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The people are the militia meaning every able bodied non criminal or mentally defective man and now woman can and should be able to keep and bear arms if they so choose . I would say that every legal Us gun owner should spend one weekend a month and at least 2 total weeks a year training with their firearms . Ammo is hard to come by but products now exist to help train without wasting valuable ammo . With dems controlling all 3 branches right now do not expect ammo or guns / gun parts to be easy nor affordable to buy. American Gun owners from both sides of the aisle need to stand up and tell Joe Biden and his far left cohorts his EO’s on guns are unconstitutional and that we will fight like hell to preserve our rights as free Americans
Nice use of ableist slurs there Asher – shall we add that to the pile of examples of your woeful behaviour? You said to me once that an armed society is a polite society, yet as I have mentioned to you repeatedly, the USA has a much bigger problem with gun violence than the UK, Canada, Australia, Japan, Germany, France etc… you’ll probably reply with ‘um… Constitution!’, without stopping to wonder if there’s a way to safely have guns (ala Germany) and reduce the loss of life from gun crime. ….
My reply to Darth and his Sickophant friend who also hates guns and gun owners… You think just because some minority of people use guns to harm other who are innocent all must give up our Constitutional rights. There are ways to deal with gun violence that are not as extreme as the crap like confiscations bans and forced evaluations that the most radical of the gun control activists champion . To address the me calling the op a retard maybe I could have picked my words better . Woefully ignorant about guns and most gun owners. would have been better. Not all who own guns just wanna murder others like the OP will claim. Most of us own what we own for good reasons as well as because we are allowed to as free citizens. I own my guns for self defense first and foremost. Secondarily I own them because I like shooting targets as well as I hunt . Lastly I own historic weapons of all sorts be they guns like muskets, trapdoor rifles, henry repeaters, I even co own a og gatling on old wagon wheels as well a a functioning cannon If I could afford it I would own a functional WW2 Tank .. I also own historic recreations bladed weapons and crossbows . I have not shot nor killed anyone with any weapon I own I have had to draw down upon someone who meant me harm. I am glad that person choose a better option and just got arrested. I hope to never have to shoot another human but I am willing to if they mean me mine or my friends harm. People who would come to try and steal my guns would mean us harm . I am willing to die to preserve my rights are you anti gun people willing to sentence federal officers to death to achieve your dream of a gun and rights free society? Because I know your ilk is to cowardly to come and try and steal own guns yourselves
Okay thanks to our lovely Gun Hater Darth I was made Aware of this Gem of a turncoat Gun control activist . He would ban / confiscate all semi auto firearms if he had his way … Says so in his post he forgets that doing so would Shred our Bill of rights. Yes Guns are leathal and dangerous it is that very reason why most non criminal citizens should own them. A armed populist is a final check upon a tyrannical Government. Firearms are also one of the best defenses against criminal attack by more than one person. Let alone the Use of guns to protect ones self from bears or other wildlife if you live far outside a city. Expanding Gun control nor expanded background checks would do anything to stop any of the most recent gun violence. Fun Fact criminals who want to harm others do not follow laws. I am fine with a criminal background check … but data bases need to be updated more often to reflect changes. If you are a person who has a proven record of violent acts ie violent felony or violent misdemeanor it should bar you from most gun purchase for at least 5 to 10 years from conviction / after release from prison. Most Gun control Cultists fail to think about things like personal protect that guns can provide close to 3 million people were saved by use of guns . Mass shootings are an issue that can be tackled without taking away any other persons freedom. Public event places be it stadiums or alike metal detectors and armed security would be a fine compromise to help so called gun free zones or as Mass shooters call them target zones . I would also be fine with getting rid of all Gun free zones that are not Government buildings . Armed non criminal citizens tend to show much more control than our non armed citizens. Most Gun owners will rarely start a fight because we know that leathal force can be put into play that fast. Also most gun owners I know also refuse to carry or handle our guns while intoxicated .
My response 1 still no stated laws or further demand you would place on gun owners. I know you do not like the fact Americans can have the freedom to own and or use guns in any number of ways but lay out what laws would you impose that would solve any of the last few mass shootings. If a person is going to attack others they will find away to do it . Removing the ability/ putting massive road block on law abiding citizens obtaining firearms will only make it so law abiding people will just be target for both mad men or tyrannical leaders that currently run our Lovely Democrat / Socialist government. 2 Neither you nor I know that monster motives for what he did. But you want to blame Orange Hitler aka Trump for that mans actions that is gross and wreaks of far left political bias. Trump Did not tell anyone to attack Asians . He called it the China virus because that is were it was created and released then The Government of China lied about for months. Trump issued travel bans once more was know . People like you called that racist. Trump as much as yall want to claim he was , was not a Dictator he could not issue all State a 12 month lockdown like we had on a state by state Bases . Fun fact CDC and WHO both say lockdowns are a last resort and should not be used. 3 yes I am such a issue wanting people who just shot at and killed other to be put down. Now we have to waste millions and million on this guy with trial and prison time because nobody shot that scum bag. Hell the Shop owners where he shot up should have put him down . When a dog is rabid you end it that guy was rabid.
4 YOUR POSITIONS ARE THE BASIC FAR LEFT FEMINIST CAPITALISM IS EVIL CRAP. TIRED OF YOU
5 Asher doesn’t care that this is what feminism seeks to tackle, for he is incapable of being objective or rational on the subject of feminism. TACKLE IT HOW? Demonizing male sexuality demand male get genital mutilation aka become trans. Feminism only care about sexual assault if it happens to a woman by a man if that man can be made a example of. Hell Joe Biden aka Former vice President (Refuse to acknowledge him as anything more)Has a Sexual assaults claim made against him but the left burred that story because Trump evil must removed him by any means.
Darth I refuse to Say that monsters actions were fully inspired by the words of Trump . Until in open Court he makes that claim. For people like him really no trial is needed he was caught at the scene or something correct this not a innocent until proven guilty thing.
You will never see the gun issue from any position other than let make it nearly impossible to buy or continue to own them . Our Constitution outlines the need for and why we have civilians having the ability to own guns. Guns are not the biggest issue in the US mental health more over better mental health care for men (not the crap tainted by vile anti male feminism).
Feminism refuses to address male issues of suicide or issues of PTD from actual war . Most of our homeless are males a good portion of them are Veterans . Feminist will litterly spit on the calling them evil baby killing monster, say they are dangerous and should not be allowed in society. But let a female vet get so much as a hangnail after service then you folk will move heaven and earth in attempts to help her.
You nor I / pretty much any American gun owner will agree on the correct path to still preserve liberty while also curbing mass shooting or reduce non justified uses of firearms. You seem to want strict licensing by very left bias judges and or mandatory yearly or monthly psyche evaluations for every gun owner. I am sure you want round capacity restrictions on magazines or hell Id bet $1,400 you want all semi automatic weapons banned . I doubt you could tell the actual difference between a 308 hunting rifle vs a Ar Style rifle .
I will say again all laws on guns are infringements yes I am that absolutist on the issue . If you are not a violent felon if you want to own any kind of gun even scary full auto belt fed guns . Shooting is a skill I think all males above 13 yo should learn along with proper firearm safety. I am fine with those who do not wish to own guns . I am not fine with people like you saying I do not have any right to my dually purchased . property . I have historic guns I have modern guns I own modified guns . I have even with the issues I have not shot up any place … But by your logic I should have done so already since I am that evil white Southern male who also Supports Trump and a select few Reps . See the biggest Difference between me and most mass shooters is I do not want to harm others . I just want to be left alone by pretty much everybody . I do not like or Trust any person claiming authority over my life that goes for people like you Police / government officers.
Awesome thanks for calling me out. 1 What gun control measures are you demanding be put forth something as evil as hr127 ? 2 Do have to love how you turn this as political before any motives are known . 3 Personally cops should have put that evil guy down not arrest him. Your side keeps saying yall want unity but you do not you want 1000% bowing to your ideas of critical race theory feminist dogma and other nearly socialist things. Other peoples rights or thoughts be damn only the left should have power. If he was mad at Asians / Chinese people for a year of forced lockdowns then he is a damn fool . He should have been mad at both China’s government for lying at the Start of the shit show and also be mad at the America government for draconian lockdown measures forcing many business’s to close forever, But since darth hates anyone having a small business who also is pissed at a year of lockdowns he will say oh well government should just print more money and give it to people. If he was inspired by some sort of sexual frustration pal there are far smarter and much safer ways to vent that kind of frustration. But darth will likely say oh but sex dolls or prostitutes’ are wrong men do not deserve to have sexual release . The guy more than likely was mentally ill or had a break that allowed him to rationalize his actions . I do not condone any mass shooting or terror attack . Only reason to use your gun on another person is to either protect your life your property / the life or property of others. Idiots like that man today make all gun owners look bad . We have had over 100 years of gun control laws in America , What good has any of them done? They all are simply infringements upon the Second Amendment. That says shall not be infringed but hey radical ideas like following the bill of rights are to much for gun control Nazi’s LIKE DARTH AND PRETTY MUCH ANYONE IN THE POLITICAL ESTABLISMENT His name nor image should be posted he deserve no fame at all .
