Peiper just posted a bit on the - guaranteed - lunacy in the UK over gun rights here in the USA. They simply don’t get it. Worse, their leftists are even more delusional than ours are, and that’s saying a lot.
The UK has a far, far worse amount of violent crime PER CAPITA than does the USA. Granted, for the most part they don’t use guns. They just cut each other, stab random strangers in the street, and stomp old people to death in the parks under their boots. This passes for fun and entertainment among their youth, who know that it’s unlikely that they will serve any significant jail time - if any - for their crimes, even if captured (which is also dismally unlikely). So it can be hell over there, but it’s America that’s the violent place. Yeah, right.
So, there you have it. Gun control does not work; worldwide it’s been shown an infinite number of times that people who want to kill or injure others will use the weapons at hand.
So, there you have it. Another example of how an armed citizenry - carrying concealed firearms - stopped another crazy person bent on mass murder. More proof antithetical to gun control: an armed populace limits or reduced violent crime.
So, there you have it. Nut cases allowed to run around loose in public are dangerous. Doesn’t matter where they are. When they snap, other people are going to get hurt. Or killed. So maybe the crazies shouldn’t be out in the first place?
The same day as the tragic Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting, a Chinese man stabbed 22 children in China’s central province of Henan. The attack yielded almost no news coverage in the United States.
Although no fatalities have been reported in this particular Chinese stabbing incident, China — which has strict gun control laws — has had a spate of school stabbing massacres in recent years with many fatalities. In September, an ax-wielding Chinese man killed three school children and wounded another 13. And NBC News reported December 15 that “there was a particular string of knife attacks against schoolchildren across the country in early 2010 that killed nearly 20 and wounded more than 50.”
Also largely unreported by the national press was a would-be massacre stopped in a Portland-area mall by an armed citizen with a concealed-carry permit. 22-year-old Nick Meli was carrying his Glock 22 at the Clackamas Town Center, a mall in a town outside of Portland, Oregon, on the same day as the Newtown massacre. The contrast between the unarmed victims in Newtown and the Clackamas shooting was stark. Meli, seeing suspect 22-year-old Jacob Tyler Roberts shooting random shoppers with his AR-15, pulled his gun as Roberts’ gun jammed. Meli never even had to fire his gun to stop the shooting spree, which ended in the death of two innocents and the shooter himself. Meli held his fire because of the risk of shooting an innocent person. “As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them,” Meli told the local television station. “I know that after he saw me, I think that the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself.”
So of course, the predictable bullshit from our own totalitarian communists is in high gear. In the latest, corruptocrat Rahn Emanuel, Black Jesus’s appointed Mayor of Chicago, a city with the 2nd or 3rd most draconian gun laws in the nation (and home to rampant “gun crime” killings among it’s Thug Nation underclass), is calling for a renewed and improved Assault Weapons Ban. Because the last Assault Weapons Ban didn’t do a damn thing to limit crime, and even had it been renewed it would not have applied to the rifle Lanza used in Newton. That one was not covered under the old AWB. Not that that fact has the slightest impact on this latest iteration.
I’m so sick of this shit.
PS - based on the design of the old Colt Lightning rifle and the Remington 760 rifle, both pump action repeaters, I have designed a very short stroke, carbine length, mid-power repeating rifle. Such a thing will be exempt from any kind of Assault Weapons Ban that could ever be. For magazine capacity, it uses a rolling star shaped multi-magazine: 6 magazines are attached to a roller on a frame at their base end, and the other end of the frame is mounted in the rifle. Thus any given magazine can be limited to 10 rounds, or 7, or 5, or whatever, but the shooter will be able to rotate a fresh magazine into battery with just one simple click to the right, just like advancing the cylinder on a revolver, thus being able to load and fire 30 to 60 rounds in less than half a minute, but complying with any limited capacity magazine law. I’m no gun designer, but it really is that easy. A “harmonica mount”, with several magazines attached side by side that slid sideways through the receiver would work just as well if not better.
PPS - I own a Winchester Model 94 Legacy rifle. It’s a “cowboy gun”, a lever action repeater, with a 14 round tubular magazine. With a bit of practice you can fire off all the shots in about 5 seconds. A “Henry” magazine tube modification and a couple plastic tubes full of cartridges would allow it to be reloaded in about 2 seconds. So you can see that “automatic” and “semi-automatic” bans aren’t going to do a thing, nor is banning “high capacity” magazines, whether detachable or not. It’s all bullshit. Simply claw devices already exist, called speed loaders, that let you reload a double action revolver in well under half a second. They’ve been around for decades now.
I have read that gun deaths per capita are higher in UK than USA cities! and they are not strict gun controls you have to jump through hoops to own a 22 rifle unless it a low powered air rifle! handguns are banned period but available in seedy pubs in most cities and as the death of 2 young women in Manchester testify automatic weapons are also easy to come by ! just how long did it take for the sub human turd bespoiling the whitehouse (is it still called that?) to try and farther his agenda using these dead children??
Don’t forget - during the evil booosh years of immoral, unfunded, endless wars - You had a better chance of being shot in Detroit than in Iraq.
But liberals never, ever let facts, the truth, history or reality get in the way of their agenda.
