Liberals Are Super Upset About A Few People Killed With A Gun…

  • …but not over the others killed with a knife.
  • …but not over those hit with a car.
  • …but not the tens of millions killed and tortured by their favored communist/socialist rulers like Stalin, Mao, Chavez.
  • …but not over the tens of thousands killed in Syria by guns, bombs, and chemical weapons.
  • …but not the millions of children aborted each year because liberals are too lazy to use protection when they get drunk.
  • …but not the thousands killed by Islamic jihadis.
  • …but not the millions who die every year due to an what is effectively a DDT ban.
  • …but not about Iran getting the nuclear bomb.
  • …but not the millions who live in squalor thanks to “climate change” policies.
  • …but not all the illegals who kill, rape, assault, rob, and steal identities, effecting a huge amount of American citizens.
  • …but not the American citizens murdered in Benghazi.
  • …but not the 50 thousand children who died every year under Saddam Hussein, along with all the other Iraqi’s intentionally tortured, maimed, and killed under Hussein.
  • …and want to restrict Other Law Abiding Citizens from owning a gun to protect themselves from the fallout of Liberal soft-on-crime justice system policies.

I’m sure you have your own to add. Liberals have an interesting value system, one which excuses certain things for political expediency and beliefs. Let’s follow up with another Typical Liberal Nutjob Gun Grabber, The Daily Beast’s Cliff Schecter

“How the Gun Nuts Try to Excuse Away the Santa Barbara Slaughter—And Why They’re All Wrong”

Fortunately, the article title tells us right off the bat that it will be full of strawmen article and crazy.

The firearms fanboys have been more creative than usual, scrambling to defend their precious weapons in the wake of the massacre in Santa Barbara. It’s only made their excuses lamer.

Interesting. A Constitutional Right is now considered “fanboy” material. Also interesting, per the American Spectator, and something I’ve noted a few times since the event, California has the toughest gun laws in the country (which also means they are some of the toughest in the world).

They have their talking points at the ready for these, and they immediately got started: If we ban guns, they warned, then we have to ban knives and cars, because he used those to kill and injure people, too. California has liberal gun laws, and this proves they don’t work, they insisted. There is nothing we can do to stop gun violence, they recited; guns don’t kill people, people do.

Or, they can be fed into wood-chippers and ovens, much like was done by some of the Left’s favorite dictators.

Another favorite conservative retort to calls for stricter gun regulation has been to point to California’s “liberal” gun laws, which supposedly didn’t help Santa Barbara at all. However, the fact that the shooter possessed only 10-bullet magazines and no assault weapon–or what he could legally buy–clearly did help. As terrible as this was, it could have been much worse if the gun fetishists had their way, and any manner of weapon or magazine was for sale.

So, apparently the 10 bullet magazine restriction did not work. And notice Cliff mentioned “magazines”. People can carry more than 1 and switch them out when they go on a murderous rampage? Strange. In fact, as Cliff learned, Elliot Rodger had 41 ten round mags.

We believe in that part of the Constitution–the Preamble actually, which comes before the 2nd Amendment you don’t even understand–that promises us that our government will protect “the general Welfare” and “domestic tranquility.” I’d argue that with weekly mass shootings occurring–in the short time it has taken me to write this, there has been another gun massacre, this time in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina–Congress is directly disobeying the Constitution, as well as the Will of the People, to give special consideration to an interest group that funds its members’ campaigns.

Cliff and the other gun grabbers only believe in certain parts of the Constitution, and want to use those two phrases to support violating those other parts for their own political benefit. If Cliff, and the Daily Beast editors, are so concerned about guns in our society, perhaps they will call for The Government to disarm itself. Until then, that “interest group”, made up of at least 100 million American citizens, will continue to defend itself and their Constitutional rights from the gun grabbers who care little about the actual deaths, except as props for their political beliefs.

Life is not Utopia. Bad things are always – always – going to happen. But it is crystal clear that the problem in California isn’t guns. Liberals demanded – and got – the “toughest gun control laws in the nation.” They made not the slightest difference to a mentally ill young man, who should never have been on the streets of California in the first place.

That’s from the American Spectator article mentioned earlier. But, be careful in pushing for stronger mental health laws: when leftists are involved, you might just get more than you expect.
