Buppert’s Law of Military Topography
Too early to speculate on anything but one thing. Many of the injuries sustained in the aftermath of the shooter’s demise on a floor of a Vegas hotel will be non-gunshot wound related.
Is he a left wing nut-sack or a right wing nut-sack? Look at the demographic of the target and that will ready the clue-bat. Does anyone doubt that if any of the bipedal budgies in the MSM discovered a Republican affiliation, we’d know it by now?
Mass shootings are no worse here than in gun prohibitionist Europe:
“In fact, as figures from the Crime Prevention Research Center show, “there were 55 percent more casualties per capita from mass public shootings in [the European Union] than U.S. from 2009-15.”
Now the blood dancers of both wings of the Vampire Party will be gathering around their boiling kettles of Marxist to call for mass disarmament of one flavor or another. The usual invertebrates from the kabuki performers in the National Rifle Association will come to many agreements on the worst legislation possible.
The Second Amendment means nothing. Its tortured and twisted language construct has allowed the violence brokers in the political classes to institute massive volumes of rules and regulation restricting human defense activities across the board.
I’ve written about it before.
The Republican wing of the Marxist junta in America has been waging war on private ownership of firearms since Lincoln first squatted in the Offal Office.
The state is only opposed to the PRIVATE ownership of weapons.
As one can surmise, there is no political solution to weapons ownership. Self-defense predates every government solution ever devised. It’s written in the DNA.
Whatever political machination you see on the glass teat as human parrots squawk and play at arguing with each other, none will entertain the only moral solution: not a single gun law survives tomorrow morning.
Sometime back there was a brief flash in the pan to make contemporary taxpayers pay for the slavery imposed on blacks until the passage of the Constitutional amendment granting their freedom from chattel slavery but not releasing them from the tax and regulation plantation that is America. Hence the new era slave would be codified in the Fourteenth Amendment. The reparations movement sought to redistribute current wealth to any Americans who could prove their ancestors were in chains and they would be granted reparations or a payment for restoration into the original condition they were seeking.
I am always unsympathetic to any forcible wealth transfer and especially one that would be fraught with the peril of fraud and the creation of yet another nightmarish bureaucracy charged with imposing tolls on living and breathing human beings to be vacuumed out of their wallets and tucked into others’ coffers after the government takes its usual sizeable “maintenance fee” to administer such a program.
There was one laudatory effect of such a proposal though; nothing focuses people’s attention more than the potential hijacking of their wealth or rights for specious political reasons such as the latest economic illiteracy and fiscal cliff diving that characterized the wholesale takeover of healthcare by the government and the imposition of national socialist healthcare. The reparations movement did the same thing, nothing would have focused the national race conversation more than the shenanigans I just described.
The addition of yet another government theft scheme to rob from Paul to pay Peter. But then again, what else is government for besides filling mass graves with the unwilling and recalcitrant.
Now we are facing down The Amphibian and all of Trump’s apparatchiks in the fight to keep guns in the hands of private citizens (or subjects depending on your point of view). Oh, you haven’t heard? Wait for it.
The usual suspects in the media are clamoring to extinguish all such rights in the march toward turning America into a curious amalgam of modern Great Britain, the former USSR and more regrettable aspects of tin-pot dictatorships around the planet that are terminally frightened by well armed citizens.
So repeal the goddamned Second Amendment. Just do it.
