'Moms Demand Action' sounds like a great MILF porn series.
The TSA gets shot at and everyone thinks they need guns. Citizens get shot at and everyone thinks they don’t need guns.
Why do we just assume that California is a Democrat state?
I always found it weird that everyone just assumes that California is a Democrat state.
We JUST had a Republican governor. In fact, we’ve had many republican governors run California.
California has put three men in the white house (Hoover, Nixon, Reagan) and all three were Republican and that came over the span of almost 60 years.
We have one of the largest if not the largest population of libertarians.
We also have huge gun culture in California. It’s shockingly big. California is one of the top four in number of background checks for gun purchases per year. Our per capita gun ownership is estimated at about 22% (which I think is way underestimated), but we’re one of the most populated states out there with 38 million people living here. That means the 22% actually translates to 8.3 million gun owners.
That 8.3 million is so large that if it became it’s own state, it would be the 12th largest in terms of population. We have more gun owners in California that 39 other states have in terms of residents. Think about that.
With all of these numbers in mind, I don’t understand how we can’t overturn so of these asinine laws that prevent us from owning certain types of guns and accessories and how we’ve failed to block so many of these baseless new laws from passing.
Do we lack proper organization and leadership? Is the NRA failing or is it to large of a system for them to support? Is the GOofA too small? What’s up, Cali? How do we fix this?
“….after learning of the Obama administration’s involvement in the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups and its secret seizure of Associated Press phone records…I’ve had some of the pro-gun lobbyists on here, saying to me, ‘Well, the reason we need to be armed is because of tyranny from our own government,’ and I’ve always laughed at them,” Morgan said. “I said, ‘Don’t be ridiculous! Your government won’t turn itself on you…but, actually, this is vaguely tyrannical behavior by the American government.”
— Piers Morgan
the CNN host admitted to guest Penn Jillette that perhaps gun advocates were right about creeping tyranny after all (via thinksquad)
It’s the end of the world. Get to the shelter.
Piers Morgan finally sees the light…
The government spent millions of our tax dollars to tell us that we shouldn’t have things that we want to have. So glad this stupid gun bill is dead. Maybe these twats will finally fuck off.
Obama’s really pissed that he lost the gun control vote in the Senate. I feel bad for all the kids he’s going to drone tonight to blow some steam off.
The future looks… safe?
Politicians are starting to debate ‘Knife Control’. In a few years, we’re going to debate ‘Spoon Control’. Sooner or later, we’re all going to be wearing Styrofoam underwear and eating out of squeezy-bags. Ain’t the future grand?
I’d have no problem with Jim Carrey’s Cold Dead Hand video if it were actually funny instead of being a 6 minute ad hominem attack on gun owners, southern culture and penis capacity.
Opponents argue that gun control, by disarming potential victims, makes it more difficult for them to protect themselves. Supporters reply that since criminals are more experienced in violence than victims, the odds in an armed confrontation are with the criminal. This is probably true but almost entirely irrelevant to the argument.
Suppose one little old lady in ten carries a gun. Suppose that one in ten of those, if attacked by a mugger, succeeds in killing the mugger instead of being killed by him—or shooting herself in the foot. On average the mugger is more likely to win the encounter than the little old lady. But—also on average—every hundred muggings produces one dead mugger. At those odds, mugging is an unprofitable business—not many little old ladies carry enough money to justify one chance in a hundred of being killed getting it. The number of muggers declines drastically, not because they have all been killed but because they have, rationally, sought safer professions.— David Friedman, Hidden Order: The Economics of Everyday Life (via utilitymaximiser)
