Sadly, we are permeated with BULLSHIT throughout our society.  People killing in the name of religion, people spreading viruses and other malware, politicians defying our Constitution, pundits lying to the public, cannabis is illegal while countless harmful drugs– many endorsed by the FDA– are FAR more dangerous.  The list goes on.

This 6 minute video about gun crime/facts is a MUST WATCH if you are anti bullshit!

There is a lot of anti-gun propaganda being foist on us incessantly, touting how great it is in the U.K., because guns are illegal.  Well, they have THREE TIMES the number of assaults, rapes, and violent robberies than the U.S. does, maybe more.

This definitely belongs in the BULLSHIT category of misleading the public.  Remember– when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.  People– citizens, victims– are the first responders to a crime.  In Israel, 2 days ago, A Palestinian threw acid on a family and an armed passer-by shot the Palestinian and held him until police arrived.

Guns do not kill, but ANY weapon in a criminal’s hands, can and often do.  Law-abiding gun owners are RARELY a problem to anyone, yet the naive pass restrictions on the 99.9999% of gun owners who are NOT a problem to anyone, in a misguided attempt to thwart the 0.0001% of the criminals….who do NOT heed the new laws (or old ones) in the first place.  Folks, think rationally, vote rationally.

FFN#5 Gun Owners – Calling you out – YouTube.

This pro 2nd Amendment video epitomizes what is wrong with our country.  The 2nd Amendment explicitly states that our rights to bear arms “…shall not be infringed”.  Moreover, the 10th Amendment explicitly states that powers not granted to the federal government, belong to the states.  Yet, federal raids for cannabis continue in states that have legalized cannabis.  What makes the government– ANY government– think that it has the right to dictate what we can or cannot ingest?  I can understand regulating our public behavior— no one wants drunks or stoners staggering around in public, being obnoxious or dangerous, but I cannot imagine the justification for dictating what can or cannot be ingested in one’s home, let alone a plant that grows naturally.

Infringements on our right occurs because we LET them occur.  When police violate our Constitutional rights– when they harass, search, detain, with no probable cause– we cower and obey, whether they have the legal right or not.  We should create an uproar, like that in Ferguson (not violent, though), every time our government denies us our Constitutional rights, whether the subject is guns, drugs, cannabis, illegal spying, or other demands, and get widespread media attention.  If we don’t demand our rights, they will be removed.

You have all read about the frog in boiling water, but I will remind you, nevertheless.  If you put a frog into hot or boiling water, it will immediately jump out, but if you put in in cool water, then gradually raise the temperature, you will kill the frog, since it will die before it notices that the water is hot.  Well, this same analogy depicts what is happening to our Constitutional rights.  Little by little, the government ILLEGALLY usurps power, and if we don’t cry FOUL, they get away with it.  Just look at the seizure laws– cops can take everything you own, without charging you with a crime, and your life is ruined, in COMPLETE defiance of Constitutional rights!

I urge you to raise holy hell (non-violently) and get as much media attention as you can, every time a Constitutional right is denied.  It’s time to take back our government from this control freaks, and restore it to WE, THE PEOPLE!

Bloomberg Moms’ political spots relied on deceptive voter manipulation – National gun rights | Examiner.com.

I know that most readers are here for the cannabis info, but this is another one of my hot buttons– the LIES surrounding both cannabis and guns, that people unfamiliar with one or the other, believe when politicians and other LIE to us.

NONE of these feel-good, “common sense” laws would have prevented ANY of the mass shootings we’ve read about.  All these laws do is disarm law-abiding citizens WHO ARE NOT THE PROBLEM!  Do you REALLY believe a “NO GUNS” or “GUN FREE ZONE” sign would stop a criminal intent on harming others?  Seriously?  If it did, we could just put up “NO CRIME” signs and be done with it.  It’s political BULLSHIT, just like the BULLSHIT they try to spread about cannabis, and then use that BS to take people’s children away, because the parents have an ailment for which they use cannabis.  It’s ABSURD!

I urge my readers to use common sense in ALL these cases.  When allegations are made, determine if they are true, and more importantly, determine if any feel-good proposals will actually do anything to make us safer or healthier.

Gun Myths Gone in Five Minutes: ABC News 20/20 – YouTube.

Flood of CD 2 campaign ads inescapable.

 

“Two separate ads from the Americans for Responsible Solutions suggest McSally is opposed to closing the “gun show” loophole that allows individuals to buy guns without a background check, as well as online transactions.”

The Giffords ads are full of falsehoods. First, there isn’t any ‘gun show loophole.’ A loophole is something that occurs without the author of the law realizing it. The Congress specifically exempted private, person to person, father to son, father to daughter, uncle to nephew (you get the idea) sales, as they should have and should continue to do so.

Another huge falsehood : Those adjudicated mentally defective are entered in to the NICS in Arizona. They have been for years. It is the law. So a person who has been adjudicated as such, they will fail a background check today, tomorrow, next week, etc.

Yet another misleading claim in the Giffords ad is the implication that because a firearm is sold on line, there is no background check performed on the buyer. FALSE!

Any place a FFL sells a firearm, a gun show, their store, in a newspaper ad, Craigslist, or an on line auction like GunBroker.com, a background check must be performed on the buyer. Most on line sales listings are from FFLs.

That written, if a private, person to person sale takes place, again, between two, UNLICENSED individuals, then no, a background check does not have to take place on the buyer.

The Congress does not have the jurisdiction to require two consenting adults from transferring ones private property to another to take the firearm to a FFL, pay a $75 or more tax, before the firearm can be transferred to the purchaser.

Then, of course, there is the assertion that enacting a universal background check law, a law that would require EVERY transfer, including the shotgun bequeathed by Grandpa to his Grandson/daughter, to go through a FFL where a transfer tax will be charged (a fee the FFL will charge for their time and labor), will save lives. It can not and will not.
