“I’d like to think about it. I mean nobody’s talking about silencers very much. I did talk about the bump stock and we had it banned and we’re looking at that. I’m going to seriously look at it. I don’t love the idea of it,”Like most everything else he does, there seems to be no intellectual nor moral underpinning to any of the garbage that dribbles audibly from his pie-hole. As if the 1934 NFA monstrosity doesn't do enough damage in what it requires for a private human on the tax plantation in America to get a suppressor... And then he nominates a mouth-breathing coproach from the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) to be the next commissar of the incompetent and fetid swamp directorate, the BATFE. This organization has always been hostile to all aspects of private weapons ownership. Like almost all badged Orc leadership in the US, the eradication of private weapons ownership as advocated by their political masters is the final goal. There is a reason why coproaches tend to shoot on sight any human with a gun America no matter the circumstances. The International Association of Chiefs of Police, the Major Cities Chiefs Association, and the National Sheriff’s Association all support weapons control, but, again, the leadership tends to come from large cities which haven’t grasped the connection between strict gun control and higher rates of violent crime. Here is John's guest post here at the Green Dragon Tavern... The second part of Andy's Glock series will be published on Monday. You now have 592 days of shopping until the next shambler-in-a-suit stumbles into the Offal Office and the Deep State slips their fist in their ass and meat puppets the march to communism. -BB
“Buy the best. Pay cash. Take delivery.” – Max Blumert “If you have a 10 dollar head, buy a 10 dollar helmet.” – Bill Buppert.My buddy Mosby over at Mountain Guerrilla has been writing quite a bit about gear lately and I’ve enjoyed it. It’s something different for a change. I have been following the articles not necessarily to learn about his opinions on gear per se, (largely because I pretty much already know what he is going to say) but more to witness the reactions from the Lumpen-Patriotariat on the blogosphere. Bitter polemics often ensue amongst folks without real world experience. These folks are no different than WorldNet Daily and Daily KOS readers who are flinging rhetorical Starbucks lattes and Chick Fil-a sandwiches at each other over identity politics and culture/social justice war hysterics without any conception of actual freedom or with any critique of power. There is a maxim that used to be tossed around the training industry. I first heard it from the late, great, Paul Gomez, but I believe Massad Ayoob is the originator of it. It’s the hierarchy of Mindset, Tactics, Skills, and Gear. In the Threeper milieu (but also in most of the general firearms culture as well) we see this flipped on its head. All people want to talk about is gear. They may talk about skills secondarily, but heaven forbid having to demonstrate those skills on demand. Whereas gear, can just be a show and tell. While most was praise, I did catch flack from the Budget Build article found here: https://backofbeyondsite.wordpress.com/2018/05/03/junk-budget-builds-and-gear-reviews/ I’ll attempt not to revisit the same material as best as I can. Let's get started.
"Eighteen years and 250,000 rounds later, after immersion in both fresh and salt water dozens of times; being tossed into the sand, dust, snow, mud and grit; being presented from a holster and fired constantly in temperatures ranging from sub-zero to over 100 degrees; and even being left on the bottom of the ocean for six months, my conclusion is that the test Glock 17 is without a doubt a heck of a pistol."My time with a 1911 when I was on a Pacific Regional Navy Rifle and Pistol team cured me of any ambition to ever own a 1911. We will not solve that fight here nor do I care to. If you have a reliable 1911 and that is your fighting sidearm, there are legions of blogs and books that will assuage and entertain that confirmation bias. Skip, our Village Armorer, has also been rocking the Glock nearly as long as me and has built several of the 80% Glock lower builds with terrific results. Enjoy. -BB For the past handful of years, I’ve been training with my Glock pistols several days every week, firing up to 40,000 rounds a year through Glock pistols alone. Almost all of that has been with my carry gun, a Gen 4 Glock 19. Today I own several G19s and a couple of other Glock models. These constitute the entirety of my pistol collection; save for a couple of curiosities I’ve picked up over the years. All other pistols I sold because they held no purpose for me. I did not start out owning and shooting Glocks, but I soon learned and amended the error of my ways. I’m not blind to other popular pistol models, however, as I have also spent the past few years putting a different pistol model through its paces every month in my capacity of writing firearms reviews for my local indoor gun range’s blog. In doing so, I’ve put hundreds and even thousands of rounds each through Walthers, Sig Sauers, Caniks, Tauruses, Kimbers, Rugers, Springfields, Smith & Wessons, CZs, FNs, Colts, Brownings, Sphinxes, Hudsons, H&Ks, Remingtons, and likely others; in most cases, several models from each of these manufacturers. All of that is to say that I’ve not lived my shooting life in a unidimensional Glock box. I’ve spent copious time with other models, often in extended use and always with careful examination and deliberate or unconscious comparison. With few exceptions, Glock pistols are superior in many discrete, substantive measures and always superior in the overall comparison of substantive measures. Note, however, that this evaluation is firmly couched in the context of a fighting gun. I do not care about a target gun or a competition gun or a range gun. I evaluate every feature and overall package exclusively in the context of a fighting tool that one carries all day every day in the course of normal, everyday activities in public and private. I have almost no regard for specialized pistols made for something other than the job of assuredly stopping violent people or animals so that I and those I love can escape their violent intent. My G19 is the pistol I carry in public and private, the one I use in at-least-thrice-weekly training, the one I used in target competition, and the one I use in run-and-gun competition. It is the only pistol to which I entrust my life. A little objectivity, please. Now, many intelligent and discriminating folks won’t simply rely on someone’s experience and hard-won insights and take them at face value. I’m a stranger with a stranger’s opinion. Fair enough. Luckily, there are a great many others in the world who extol the virtues of Glock pistols and there are several objective measures that qualify a Glock pistol’s quality and explain its widespread popularity among responsible folks and experienced warriors who get to choose their own tools. The primary reason that Glocks are the most popular choice among trained individuals whose lives depend on their guns is Glock’s incomparable reliability. There are no pistols on the planet that have taken as much abuse and grime and time between cleaning and lubing and still functioned perfectly as Glock pistols. In fact, they’re deliberately engineered to stay in the fight despite imperfect or even awful conditions. I’ve seen top-tier instructors who have deliberately not cleaned or lubed their Glocks for many thousands of rounds just to see where the failure point would be. The lowest round count I’ve seen documented was 7000 rounds without cleaning or lube for a Glock 19, by instructor Kyle Defoor. He said that at near 7000 rounds it began to cycle a bit more slowly and get the occasional stovepipe (tried and failed to find that Instagram post from a few years back). In my own near-170,000 rounds through Glock pistols, I have experienced zero—not one—malfunction in a G19, G17, G30, G30s, or G43 that was not due to a faulty aftermarket component or a part that I should have replaced thousands of rounds beforehand. The full extent of my Glocks’ malfunctions includes four instances:
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.” ― Jeff Cooper, “To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.” ― Adolf HitlerPublisher’s Note: I had been on a tear to complete ProfCJ’s Dangerous History Podcast (stopped temporarily at #160) and got sidetracked by a recommendation to listen to Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History six-part series on World War [Part] One in six very long episodes. It is worth the slog to get through it. I have found it very compelling. His episodes can run three hours but it makes a commute to work useful. Highly recommended. My keynote speech at Porcfest in 2012 still resonates. Less than 650 shopping days until the next empty suit and its Deep State handlers slithers into the Offal Office. -BB As a weapons owner in America, you are a negro living in the politically violent Democrat-dominated south at the turn of the twentieth century and that is quickly metastasizing into a variant of the Jew [Slav, homosexual, gypsy, on and on] in National Socialist Germany or a Ukrainian farmer in the 1930s USSR. You are being targeted for wishing to peacefully practice the most fundamental right in human volition, armed self defense. The red flag laws are now allowing the badged Orcs to seize your weapons before you have committed a crime. Miss McConnell is gleefully crafting a national law that will do just that in the Grand Old Politburo dominated US Senate (an ambulatory wax museum for reanimated communists). They are, like the drug prohibition regime, a quick compromise of any existing rights one may have to be safe in your person and property from the depradations of the state. Thank the Gods that wood-chippers, carpentry tools (hammers and clubs have killed more people than rifles per annum according to the Uniform Crime Report, 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed were rifles in 2017. Vehicles haven’t been used in mass killings with frequency in the US ...yet. Of course, it would be fascinating to hear the indignant urinalists berating the penchant for hammer violence or woodchipper violence or car violence but that clunky phraseology is limited to the awkward notion of “gun violence”; does that mean that a rash of hangings by suicide is rope violence? As a matter of fact, almost ten times as many children die in buckets every year than rifles deaths across the board for all age groups. Much like the imperial conditioning for unlimited searches brought to you by the living dead in the TSA and the multi-billion dollar “drunk driving” pre-crime scam across the fetid plain. The list of malum prohibitum crimes in which the only victim is the state are legion and may be ninety percent of all laws on the Federal register. Billll’s Idle Mind ran a very interesting excerpt from a weapons rights newsletter in Colorado. The violence brokers there occupying the august halls of the CO State House (what a delicious turn of phrase, of course it is) have again passed a rather Orwellian pre-crime treasure trove posing as law and justice. Books have killed many more millions of people than guns have in the history of mankind especially in the last six generations since the Marxian software virus has liberated the communist dark passenger to build corpse piles to the stars. What if one were to substitute the term book or car or hairbrush or hammer in the legislation instead of gun? A man gets a divorce and has all his power tools or lawn implements seized so he doesn’t potentially harm someone. Most thinking humans (a minority in America, I know) would think that absurd and silly. There is one reason the government supremacists always go after weapons in private hands and it has nothing to do with private weapons violence. Power. You will note there are no impassioned clarion calls to disarm the largest existential murderer of all time, government. So here is the excerpt, my comments are not italicized: 1) Your status as a gun-owner/concealed-carrier needs to be a secret. Most relatives, co-workers, neighbors, even friends don’t need to know. Don’t talk about specific guns you may own, particularly military rifles. Maintain a low profile. Find other things to talk about! The first rule of gun club is don’t talk about gun club. I have to constantly remind myself of this little gem. 2) Guns you own need to be adequately secured, and always out of sight. Ammunition boxes, loose rounds of ammunition, gun magazines and other literature, holsters, rifle magazines, accessories, etc need also to be kept continuously out of sight. Casual visitors to your home, office, car should never see any of that! You should start spreading the wealth to different locations.
They promote the notion that death and taxes isn’t necessarily the right sequence if you stand up and refuse to be robbed. All government is based solely on hitting and stealing and rationalizing all forms of anti-social behavior and legalizing piracy and plunder and calling it an enterprise for your own good. I always find it hypocritical when the communist can view taxes as just while at the same time ranting about keeping the full product on one's labor [thanks DeFo]. Go figure.Governments are nothing more than sophisticated brigand bands with bad music, colored rags flapping in the breeze and large bands of armed thugs with a license to kill. We all pay at the peril of our children and grandchildren as we feed the beast that makes life more and more centralized, regulated and less than optimal. Just a note that I quote Reagan for one of his few sober thoughts on economics because while he talked a good game, he was no more fiscally conservative than any of the Offal Office vermin following Eisenhower and succeeding him in office in 1989. I will give Reagan his due for reducing income tax rates from a high of 70% to 28% but no closer to zero than my comfort zone for taxation. Eisenhower managed to reduce government spending per GDP by two percentage points, not Reagan who spent absurd amounts of other people’s money and popularized deficit spending for the voter mobs. I highly recommend The Great Deformation by former Reagan advisor David Stockman for a fairly thorough analysis of the fiat currency and bankster chaos that has consumed the American economy for the better part of a century. I don't agree with all of Stockman's conclusions and his continuing faith in the "right" statist regulatory regime is quaint but illusory in application. In the end, the coming Endarkenment demands an enthusiastic embrace of toxic masculinity. Get to the range. The Mango Mussolini is just a flimsy and paper-thin holding action against the communist hordes. Happy tax day, Helots. -BB
“You can’t tax business. Business doesn’t pay taxes. It collects taxes.” ― Ronald Reagan [...in a rare instance of economic literacy.] "The principle that the end justifies the means is in individualist ethics regarded as the denial of all morals. In collectivist ethics it becomes necessarily the supreme rule." Friedrich von Hayek, The Road to Serfdom (1944)Taxation is theft and the acquisition of other people’s resources with a velvet glove backed by a mailed fist. It is simply one of the many ways in which the state brutalizes and impoverishes its tax cattle on a daily basis. Despite the government-media complex insistence that the tax rate in America is tolerable if not fair, anything above zero is morally wrong if the robbed don’t agree implicitly and consensually to the mugging for whatever fantastic services the state proclaims it provides. The French aren't the only ones to achieve a 100 percent tax rate, they're just more blunt about it. So I want to destroy a myth, I want to show you through sheer numbers and data that the state in America has a tax rate that exceeds 100% to which the normal American having had a proper government education will insist that is impossible. I’d like to excise some of the population that is at this point already in brutally simple terms. Now the tax rate for incarcerated Americans is exactly 100% since their lives have been stolen in total. The tax rate on certain targeted marijuana businesses in the US under IRS code 280E are taxed in excess of 80% (some approaching 100%) in the aggregate. The government collected an estimated $4.7 billion in taxes from legal cannabis companies last year on nearly $13 billion in revenue. I believe the thieving feds extend the drug war through 280E. Apart from the sheer moral hazard and absolute immorality of the aforementioned cases, I would suggest that all Americans pay an effective tax rate that exceeds 100% even though that beggar’s belief and rational thought but we are talking about the government. Direct taxation in America on the Helots residing within and without the US and its territories is enormous and takes on many tangential impacts. “The United States is the only country that taxes its citizens’ worldwide income, even when those citizens live indefinitely abroad.” An ordinary US subject will pay Federal, state (43) and/or city income taxes, property taxes, excise taxes, sin taxes, sales taxes, Socialist Security, Medicare, unemployment and corporate income taxes. I have given a brief overview of most progressive taxes and there are regressive taxes like the gasoline tax that the Feds are gnashing their fangs over since prices have gone down (slight bump in the summer) and they were foolish enough to assign a percentage of price instead of flat fixed levy. In 2017, the California government vermin raised its excise taxes on motor fuels. The tax on gasoline increased from 34.7 cents per gallon to 46.7 cents per gallon (and it increased another 1 cent per gallon this year). The tax on diesel fuel increased from 34 cents to 67 cents per gallon. These communist low-lifes are a shining example of taxing anything that moves, literally in this case. Then there are the death taxes to pay a gratuity to the state(s) per the required death levy once the owner has assumed room temperature and you are taxed once again on monies that have already had taxes stolen from the whole. 12 states and the District of Columbia also have an estate tax, some with significantly smaller exemptions and as high as 20%. Then there’s the other death tax: the inheritance tax. The federal government doesn’t have one of these, but six states do. This tax is levied against those who inherit from you up to 18% if you happen to live in the state that practices this.. Of course, there are the beloved sales taxes. “As of January 1st, 2014, 5 states (Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon) do not levy a sales tax, while California has the highest state tax rate at 7.5%.” Now, the New York City local sales and use tax rate is 4.5 percent. City and state sales tax combined is 8.875 percent, so your mileage may vary. The five states with the highest average combined state-local sales tax rates are Tennessee (9.45 percent), Arkansas (9.19 percent), Louisiana (8.89 percent), Washington (8.88 percent), and Oklahoma (8.72 percent). These do not include the additional imposts added on by municipal and county predators, which make the total approach 10%. Then there is the widely reviled property taxes imposed on real estate which means that in America you never own your property, the King does. The top ten offenders offer tax theft as high as 1.89% (NJ) on the “assessed valuation” by the King’s assessors on your castle. You will note that your local serf-administrators play interesting games with valuation in a price downturn in the real estate market. Most of the loot derived from this scheme goes to the government education system to recycle the government supremacist nonsense that grows future homeowners convinced that the tax scheme is right and just. Did I mention the varied licensing and registration taxes for vehicles and boats? Investment taxes are another burden for those who think they can divine some income or wealth from pursuing capital. Peak on dividends is as high as 44%, capital gains as high as 24% and you must tax on interest rolled into gross income. The next layer of the grand theft scheme is the corporate income tax [21% effective 2018] is imposed at the federal level on all entities treated as corporations, and by 47 states and the District of Columbia. Generally, taxable income for a corporation is gross income (business and possibly non-business receipts less cost of goods sold) less allowable tax deductions. At the Federal level, this impost produces a flat 21% tax rate on incomes one dollar to infinity. “These include taxes on income, payroll, property, sales, capital gains, dividends, imports, estates and gifts, as well as various fees. In 2010 taxes collected by federal, state and municipal governments amounted to 24.8% of GDP. In the OECD, only Chile and Mexico taxed less as a share of GDP.” This does not include state predations on the corporate entities unfortunate enough to do business in America, which ranges in forty-four states that impose a corporate income tax. Rates range from 2.5 percent in North Carolina to 12 percent in Iowa in 2019. South Dakota and Wyoming are the only states that do not levy a corporate income or gross receipts tax. California and New York are now crafting devastating tax rates that will enter the double digits for corporations doing business in those states. “Media coverage of SB 37, by Comrade Sen. Nancy Skinner of Berkeley, has emphasized that the tax penalty would be based on a sliding scale of how much more the CEO makes than the firm’s average employee, with the corporate tax rate starting at 10.84 percent for any firm with a CEO that made between 0 to 50 times as much and rising to 14.84 percent.” So let’s disabuse one important point; corporations never pay taxes and not in the righteously indignant social protest nostrums of the economic illiterates in SJW circles or the other socialist apologist organs scattered across the fetid plain. They can’t pay them because they sell goods and services to consumers so every time you hear someone in the Keystone Keynesian moronathon talk about corporations paying their fair share, it is economically impossible. The consumer pays the income taxes in higher prices for goods and services. So in essence that is a 21% levy on consumers on top of everything else they have paid. We’re not finished. Not by a long shot.
"An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity." - Clint Smith Publisher’s Note: My youngest son has been reassigned to the west coast chapter of the cult known as the Marines. He rotates from his birthplace in Okinawa in August, we are counting the days and I am building his self-defense tools. I am on episode #154 of the Dangerous History Podcast (I started at #53) and it continues to amuse and bewitch this crusty historian. I took a brief pause to listen to Dan Carlin’s Celtic Holocaust and the first two parts of Supernova of the East. I recommend both and I will be starting his WWI series in two months on my commutes. I love Carlin’s history podcasts with minor disagreements, but I cannot bear his Common Sense podcasts because he tends to ask the right questions and wildly careens into the wrong answers. His political podcasts are like slow-motion multi-car collisions on icy roads. I attended a two-day Red Dot Pistol course with the Modern Samurai Project in Prescott, AZ this past weekend. Scott Jedlinksi is one of the best red dot pistol instructors in the world who puts tremendous insight and efforts into teaching his course. He is smart, humble and a hell of a weapons user. I shot nearly 750 rounds during two days with a variety of drills and scenarios all carefully building on blocks of skills. I did not attend his one-day AIWB course on Friday before this course and wish I had. I cannot...

“Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words. Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions. Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits. Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character.” – Chinese Proverb “…Thought is a means to the end of action, and most freedom activists have forsaken the cold, tough environment of action for the warm, safe bed of thought.” – Boston T. PartyThe State of the Empire is dismal. The irreversibility of the decline of Pax Americana is already set. Orange POTUS has stated in his State of the Union address that America will never become a socialist country on his watch. Sorry Mr. President, but given modern usage and understanding of the term, it’s too late. Everything from Social Security to using Eminent Domain for a wall building boondoggle along the southern part of the country that the State claims as its own property, and everything in between proves it. Not to mention, his proposed budget is the biggest in history. The Right still cheers. One thing I’ve noticed since the rise of Trump is the incessant defense of the man in all areas by those in the Patriot movement. Anything that the man does is seen as an edict handed down by the orange Yankee liberal even if it is at odds with their basic core principles. The ultimate act of irony to me is his appointment of William Barr to be Attorney General. Yes, the same guy who defended Lon Horiuchi, who shot Vicky Weaver in the head while holding a baby and defended blanket federal immunity for all law enforcement agents no matter their crime. Silent they remain. This phenomenon happens with every political faction when they take power, but it seems much worse this time than years past. Every 2 to 6 years the parties swap domination rights and the opposition acts as though they will resist the authoritarianism of the party in control. Neither dominant political party in these united States opposes dictators. They merely want to be the dictators. The fabricated Culture War is in reality just a war among factions of Power running fedgov, not any legitimate opposition to the status quo. It has become quite clear to me that the various Patriot factions not only lack principle, but broadly speaking they lack the will to act. In the Obama years, there was talk of armed conflict over spending, infringements on rights, gun control, and socialism. The same folks now openly embrace it as Trump takes it all to new levels and they even make excuses for it or worse, openly defend it. In recent years there has been a rise in discussions about Masculinity. This is undoubtedly due to the degradation of manliness in the general public. Large pluralities of modern men can’t put on a starter, frame a deck, or fell a tree. They work in cubicles. The growing trend of joining ‘tribes’ and looking for something more, is no surprise, because they didn’t grow up that way or weren’t exposed to it like previous generations. Frat boy type groups centering around political values even exist. But instead of spending all that time in the bar talking about manliness, why don’t they actually do legitimate ‘man things’ instead? Instead of talking about 9mm vs .45, why aren’t they on the range? Why aren’t they in the timber stand or working cattle instead of drinking in some urban center in a yuppie bar? One of my ideological mentors, Boston T. Party, used to talk quite a bit about action vs. rhetoric. In the introduction to Claire Wolfe’s brilliant work, 101 things to do until the Revolution, he spoke of action libertarians vs. egghead libertarians. Ms. Wolfe’s proposals in the book were action oriented, with Monkey Wrench Gang zeal, rooted in bedrock principles. The egghead libertarians are the think tank types, or the folks incessantly debating, as Boston put it, things such as the legitimacy of urban rat control funded by taxation in New York City. While I go through phases just like anyone and enjoy a good round table discussion about philosophical issues occasionally, it dwarfs daily action. For every smart-ass comment I make to a friend in passing about X political capers, I spend hours dry firing, or in the gym or working on living self reliantly. A full discourse on the political and humdrum activism can be found here: https://zerogov.com/against-humdrum-activism-a-critique-of-the-conventional-reaction-by-john-myers/ Let it serve as a corollary to this essay. Having just a cursory presence in the gun/liberty blogosphere, even I can see the obvious. Articles or blog postings about the latest piece of gear for someone’s next patrol against the communist legions headed by AOC get the hits, but articles about employing ones carbine quick and efficiently or techniques for the clinch range gun fight get nothing. A gear review or a caliber debate will get a million hits, but an article about what your practice routine looks like will get none. People like to talk and live vicariously through others. The reality is the philosophy has been written. It’s been debated and refined. It’s now time to do.
"Upon taking office, Wilson himself fired 15 out of 17 black supervisors in the federal service and replaced them with white people. After the Treasury and Post Office began segregating, many black workers were let go. The head of the Internal Revenue division in Georgia fired all his black employees, saying, "There are no government positions for Negroes in the South. A Negro's place in the corn field." To enable hiring discrimination going forward, in 1914 the federal government began requiring photographs on job applications."If you haven’t purchased one or ten of these, I suggest you buy one immediately. If these survive the year, I will be shocked. It’s not hard to get a table top mill and a jig and finish your own lower. I am on episode #141 of ProfCJ’s Dangerous History Podcast and thoroughly digging the journey, I started at #53. Please keep in mind that every political solution in the history of this country has made you less free and not more free. That is a feature and not a bug. For Praxis purposes, here is a handy guide to common bullet sizes at Gunforest.
Buppert's Law of Government: “Any government beyond self-government is naturally a delimiting affair for liberty as the population increases subject to the coercive nature of its institutional rules."I have been incommunicado on podcasts since 2015 and look forward to doing them again, here is one of the talks I think I enjoyed the most.-BB
“The balance of power is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside.… Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them; … the weak will become a prey to the strong.” ― Stephen P. Halbrook,Private weapons ownership and self defense are the most primal and unvarnished imperatives in the human condition, absent these, every man is subject to the whims and fancies of both government and private criminals. Private weapons owners are now discriminated against on a mass basis in schools, restaurants, government buildings and many other public places; segregation works. Democrats are going back to their roots as the creators of such diverse practices and groups as the KKK, segregation on buses and lunch counters, black disarmament laws, lynching and other such social niceties. The Republicans are playing along in their traditional role of willing Mensheviks to the Democrat Bolsheviks.
"Gun control advocates today are not so foolish as to openly promote racist laws, and so the question might be asked what relevance the racist past of gun control laws has. One concern is that the motivations for disarming blacks in the past are really not so different from the motivations for disarming law-abiding citizens today. In the last century, the official rhetoric in support of such laws was that "they" were too violent, too untrustworthy, to be allowed weapons. Today, the same elitist rhetoric regards law-abiding Americans in the same way, as child-like creatures in need of guidance from the government. In the last century, while never openly admitted, one of the goals of disarming blacks was to make them more willing to accept various forms of economic oppression, including the sharecropping system, in which free blacks were reduced to an economic state not dramatically superior to the conditions of slavery."Modern gun owners are the new Negro. Private weapons ownership and communism do not mix. There is no such thing as socialism. That’s just a polite way of saying fuck you. It is all just communism with a smiley face. The socialist hides the gun and the communist brandishes it. Mike is right, if you’re an individualist and don’t realize you are in a siege, you’ve been asleep. This isn't about the sophomoric groin tackle and pigmentation identity games played by both left and right and every collectivist malefactor in between. This diversity is superfluous and purposefully buries the individual identity in a tribal costume around the cannibal cooking pot. The actual bifurcation is dead simple: this is a clash between home sapient and homo Sovieticus. Communists aren't human beings. The logic is sound and unimpeachable apparently. Someone got shot trying to break into a house? Ban houses (or at least ban locks on houses so no one is “forced” to break in). But ultimately; someone got shot trying to steal private property, so eliminate private property. All use of government brandished weapons is exempt from the preceding lesson in logic... Now we see that the CPUSA v2.0 has passed a Universal Background Check diktat that will criminalize all private transfers of weapons in the USSA and subject them to scrutiny by the designated law imposement apparatchiks. The leadership vermin in the House know the Senate will most likely not pass it and the Mango Mussolini has vowed to oppose it but his trust level on firearms is exactly zero. As I have mentioned before, it is approximately 700 shopping days until the next collectivist meat puppet shambles into the Offal Office to drool and dissemble on the teleprompter with more bloviations of dezinformatsiya and civilian maskirovka. The weapons disarmament crowd has been after this since the ink was drying on the evil 1968 GCA. A linkage between a buyer and a firearm and the permanent relationship recorded by government authorities is an awesome tool for future confiscation. They don’t have it yet despite the 4473 requirements at your local unfunded BATFE field office, the nearest gun store, to maintain their FFL records for 20 years. I surrendered my BATF FFL in the early nineties and there was a requirement to turn in all my 4473s on file when I retired the license. They never made it when I tripped and dropped them in the shredder.
