4. Right Wing Conspiracy Machine Attacks Students From Parkland School Fighting For Non-Stupid Gun Laws
This is a walk through the Constitutional arguments for banning semi-automatics, high powered, rifles (and possibly handguns that are not revolvers and certainly restricting magazine size), followed by a look at the evil intent that MUST lie at the foundation of NRA & GOP antics (with proof of actions taken). This is my first attempt at a synthesis and is meant to be an introductory overview to the correct viewpoints on this issue.
AMERICA'S GUN PROBLEM 16/19/2017 Jordan Klepper points out that the gun violence epidemic is uniquely American -- just like apple pie.
USA isn't the only country awash with guns BUT it is the only country with astronomical deaths rates by guns and this can be directly connected to lack of regulations...
The country had one mass shooting in 2001, but a resulting anti-gun referendum failed to pass. The Swiss will not give up the gun. Can their system work in the U.S.?
BBC: is violent crime so rare in Iceland?
Iceland is awash in guns, yet it has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the world. US law student Andrew Clark asks why.
Stuff like safety training (& yes, even additional safety features on guns, like only responding to the owners fingerprints, would help) , individual training and restrictions on types of firearms would help tremendously here.
With the statistics making it clear that with guns heavily regulated gun deaths are lower (even in western countries awash with guns) we come to the question. "why has the GOP & NRA been pushing unlimited guns with no restrictions with its clear that regulations reduce gun deaths"?
As one Court Justice (and others since) have pointed out, the whole NRA argument about guns and the second amendment is a hoax....
No, there’s no 2nd Amendment right to AR-15s
Ari Melber’s special report reveals why the second amendment does not apply to AR-15s or any assault style weapons -- and it never has.
Notes: Everytime the issue of guns comes up, the NRA & GOP start talking about a misinterpreted version of the 2nd Amendment (to take the debate OFF of guns)...
Republican Justice notes, this is a fraud...
If we look JUST to our own court system for precedent we discover the Supreme COurt has NEVER said all types of guns are protected under the second amendment
Even Scalia agrees that peopel don't have a constitutional right to all weapons or as many as they want...
Scalia closes with 'as they clearly are' i.e. referring to types of guns that need to be banned
The problem seems to hinge around the fact that the GOP & NRA ALWAYS leave out the part of the 2nd Amendment that says "Well Regulated"...
Stephen Asks God's Stance On The NRA
Notes: Notice a religious rather than Constitutional argument is used by the NRA chief...
Colbert counters with a Constitutional argument...
i.e. : A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
In other words; WITHIN the regulations deemed necessary for security of free people living in a free State, the people can have firearms for self-defense. There is nothing about the people forming their own militias making Militia Making a State right (i.e. States can create their own little well regulated militias like police or state cops or national guard or just a little State militia/army... in fact, gun ownership could be limited JUST to State militia members if people focused on just the first half of the Amendment like the NRA & GP focus on the second half. The second half does say "the people" so it seems correct to assume that the people can have guns for self-defense or hunting within a well regulated State where war machines are not available to the people as its not part of the regulations deemed necessary for the security of the State... which is clearly the case nowadays. See it as militias within militias. The State is a militia and some basic firearms are allowed for hunting and self defense, then the State can have little a little army such as State militia or cops and then there is the army of the whole country... i.e. a structure that keeps the State safe and secure for ALL the people in all walks of life!) - Note: banning guns bad for society, while keeping within rules and arguments already specified, would ALSO fall under the General Welfare clause of the Constitution.
Then the question becomes, does having semi-automatic, high powered, rifles make society safe for people to bear arms? Not really. A person handling a firearm in a normal way would simply get sprayed by the bullets of a semi-automatic rifle as aiming is not a big requirement (as the number of bullets make up for not needing to aim). A person trying to aim bullets verses a person spraying bullets with ease creates a scenario where ONLY Deadpool could survive an "assault weapons" assault and survive....
If someone like deadpool has a problem with this sort of weapon how can you expect a teacher, with no expertise in weapons and no experience in combat operations, being able to successfully face down such a weapon?...
Here’s how a handgun compares to an AR-15
Stephanie Ruhle takes a look at what teachers would be up against, if they were armed with a handgun and confronted with an AR-15. MSNBC Terrorism Analyst Malcolm Nance explains just how outgunned these teachers would be.
Notice how powerful this weapon is compared to a hand gun...
Basically, you are asking teachers - and other innocent citizens - to master these sorts of skills so murderers can buy their high powered - rapid fire - massive magazine weapons...
Clearly GOP & NRA Policy Positions & Actions Proves That Their INTENT Is Evil
I just want to show here, through an accumulation of evidence, that there is simply no way to see the right wings positions on guns as a result of rational and patriotic thought but the opposite. Since right wingers follow thier leaders without question, to find the source of evil intent around guns... thats how far we have to look and no more.
One of the first pieces of legislation passed by Congress and signed by Trump was SPECIFICALLY to get guns into the hands of the mentally ill... who but people with evil intent could possibly do such a thing? (Trump would sign anything, he's not a real man)
Trump words on gun tragedy ring hollow given past legislation
CNN did note that gutting this specific law to keep guns out of the mentally ill but didn't notice the criminality of the behavior...
Trump's one piece of gun-related legislation undid restrictions aimed at mental illness
But there is one important thing Trump has done on the issue of gun control during his time in office. A little less than a year ago, on February 28, 2017, he signed a measure nixing a regulation aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of some severely mentally ill people. It's critical to note that it's not at all clear it would have applied to the shooters in Florida nor Las Vegas, and there's no reason to believe it would have stopped the massacre.
This information certainly indicates that at no time was the GOP in any way trying to stop the epidemic of shootings but only to enhance it.
NRA has a pattern of supporting laws that are destructive and illogical in nature. This is a good example that most people can agree with (except NRA & ISIS)...
EXCLUSIVE - JORDAN KLEPPER - TERRORISTS ARE PIECES OF S**T - UNCENSORED 16/19/2017 Jordan Klepper thoughtfully points out that allowing ISIS members to buy guns without background checks is a bad idea.
Notes from screenshots:
Standard NRA/GOP argument i.e. its impossible to stop criminals from getting guns (I'm assuming they mean any kind of gun and thus any kind of weapon... in which case I point to the regulation of Uranium as a great example of a weapon a criminal can't just get thier hands on, i.e. regulations work)
Clearly laws to keep guns out of the hands of criminals is not a top priority of the NRA judging by the current laws after years of NRA lobbying.
NRATV host: It would be “simply unacceptable” to make it more difficult for Las Vegas gunman to get his firearms Grant Stinchfield on Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock: "So make it harder for him to get his firearms means make it harder for all of us to get our firearms"
Here we discover that the NRA actually actively seeks to REDUCE and END research into guns, i.e. this shows thier agenda is about something OTHER than facts and what is best for the citizens and welfare of society (read the Constitution where it mentions "General Welfare")...
SCARING THE GUN LOBBY 16/19/2017 As Jordan Klepper delves into firearm-related suicide statistics, he reveals what terrifies the gun lobby the most.
In other words, we have a statistic that less guns (i.e. less access to guns for everyone by more regulations) would probably lead to less deaths by suicide!
Here the NRA pushes and passes a law that helps criminals get thier guns past State lines where criminals may be allowed to have guns! (An attempt to make domestic abuse issues worse?);
JUST BETWEEN US - AMERICA IS GUNNY AS F**K A House panel is set to approve a bill allowing good guys with guns to carry concealed weapons across state lines, even if they happen to have violent criminal pasts.
More proof of evil intent...
On ABC’s This Week, NRA’s Dana Loesch pushes gun lobby lie that NRA created the background check system Loesch also misleads about lawsuit NRA supported that inhibited background check system
The NRA’s new talking point about background checks is bullshit
NRA national spokesperson Dana Loesch lied to Stoneman Douglas student Emma Gonzalez
