Statist and Anarchist #237: Due Process Second by BlameThe1st Statist and Anarchist #237: Due Process Second by BlameThe1st

When Trump isn’t busy blaming video games for school shootings, he’s busy being the most anti-gun president ever by banning bump stocks, pushing for comprehensive background checks, raising the age for buying an assault rifle, and worst of all, proposing the actual confiscation of weapons.

Say what you want about Obama (who wasn’t the best president either), but as much as MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters accused him of wanting to “terk away er guns”, at least he didn’t act like Trump and outright state that the government should “take the guns first, go through due process second.”

I’d feel sorry for every card-carrying member of the NRA who voted for Trump under the assumption that their guns would be safe from him, but…actually, no, I don’t feel sorry for them because they were stupid enough to vote for a blatantly lying former game show host. F*** their feelings!

Also, as much as I like Dinesh D’Souza and consider him to be one of the relatively “smarter” Republicans pundits out there, him laughing at young teenagers who survived a brutal massacre at their high school is the least smart thing he could have done. Like, that’s pretty low dude. Not cool!

#HotTake All of this mass shooting hysteria is essentially the so-called War on Terror all over again. The intent is to make people willing to give up their civil liberties for some false sense of security.
I'm not really pro-gun at all but I can't help but think that there is a strong intent to use this fearmongering to get us to "voluntarily" give up our civil liberties.

This goes a lot deeper than you can possibly fathom. In September 2016 I remember going to the Kern County Fair on opening day and since it was a little early I decided to rest in a bar and wait a while. On the TV I saw a blatant propaganda ad (obviously paid for by the NRA) suggesting that, if Hillary were elected, people (and women in particular) would either have difficulty obtaining guns to defend themselves with, or would have them outright taken away from them! Even Hillary never said anything about confiscating guns! It appears the NRA is getting bolder and bolder, even as they continue to send their operatives to carry out mass shootings at schools, churches, etc. and get people panicked into buying more guns. Trump is just another NRA shill; the NRA owns him, the government, and the media. And also the people who continue to ignore the most blatantly obvious problems with this country such as our obsession with guns.

Also as seen by what’s gping on in Canada and Europe, terrorists tend to improvise when there’s no guns. Like using a car to plow into a crowded park because Allah told you to or because you can’t get laid because you’re a shit person.
Culture is a problem as well. Also Japan’s low homicide rate also probably has at least something to do with their ultra conservative shame culture which thankfully we don’t have in America.
I have a lot of problems with America in practice but America in theory is good. I just disagree that capitalism is the best way to ensure the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

Please check out Esoteric Entity's and Postal Cat's videos on Youtube about the subject of capitalism, particularly anarcho-capitalism, and educate yourself.

I'm glad I voted third party in 2016, because I hated both candidates

It's quite depressing, really. Still holding out hope this was just an elaborate trolling.

*Really* glad I voted Gary Johnson, the other politicians are all scheming traitors whose loyalties are nothing but disgusting affectations.

And yet in my area, a school shooting plots were stopped in the past week. . .which is a bit nerve wracking because where I live is the 'middle of nowhere'.

Simple solution is simple - If the amount of a debit/credit can be instantly deducted when buying something, then why can't background checks be done just as fast. Granted a person can still steal or buy from the black-market but background checks that be done within a few minutes to a max of a half hour should be that easy.

One idea that was backed by even writers from the National Review suggested a gun restraining order. Basically close family can request a family member be prevented from owning a gun for a short period of time if their is fear of suicide, or endangerment to others and if it can be proven necessary the time can be extended. Basically instead of a broad all encompassing punishment like most gun control regulation entails this take is on an individual basis.

And what if Relative A doesn't like Relative B 'just because' and gets their right to own a gun out of spite?

Like I said the restraining order is only temporary and you have to provide substantial evidence to prove it needs to be extended. It's been instituted in California in 2014 and took effect in 2016 and the restraining order usually doesn't last more than a month. In 2016 only 86 were issued and only 10 were actually extended. Here is an article on it if you want to learn more.

The advantage it has is it isn't a collective punishment against all law abiding gun owners, but directed towards individuals that the people around them deem a threat to themselves, or others and needs to be proven in a court of law.

So California actually had a good idea? Is that a sign of the apocalypse or somethin'?

Let's see, the background check failed because law enforcement failed to follow up on the egregious amount of visits and the students themselves saying the guy needed help showing he threatened to kill people, and the deputies refused to do their job during the shooting by staying outside the school while people got killed, and yet we have to violate law-abiding citizens rights doing things that don't address the issues that lead to these kids getting killed. Yeah that sounds like a great idea.

And to think when Trump announced that, Dianne Feinstein enjoyed to that news and there's an animated gif posted on Imgur showing the moment when Dianne Feinstein heard that with the cliche of the "Happy Merchant". meme. imgur.com/a/LdYZe
