Never Let a Good Opportunity Go To Waste…

Never let a good opportunity go to waste, even if you’ve to be untruthful and misleading.

Snippets of the article:

The CNN story states that the Supreme Court Justices who dissented in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, INC. vs Bruen, cited data from the Gun Violence Archive, or GVA, which falsely claimed there have been 277 mass shootings since the beginning of 2022…an average of one mass shooting per day.

It is not until later in the story — much later — that CNN mentions the misleading definition the GVA uses to define a mass shooting, which the Second Amendment Foundation first exposed.

“When most Americans hear the term ‘mass shooting,’ they picture a crazed gunman stalking the halls of a school or a shopping mall, coldly and randomly executing innocent young victims,” CNN wrote, quoting from the Second Amendment Foundation’s July 2021 story. “What does not come to mind are rival drug crews shooting it out in Chicago or Detroit, or a madman murdering his entire family.”

Not included in the CNN story was a full explanation of the vast differences between the GVA’s definition of a mass shooting and how the FBI categorizes the crime, or the massive discrepancies the two definitions produce.

This type of deception is becoming an art form for the Liberal media organizations.

anti-gun news smart gun suicide

Here’s Another Failed Attempt at Creating a Smart Gun

I just saw the following article.

Company’s personalized ‘smart gun’ aims to make firearms safer – ABC News (go.com)

I’ll say the same things I said when I last posted about smart guns:

This solves nothing. If a person wants to kill themselves, they’ll find a way. Folks are so focused on making smart technology that doesn’t allow folks to commit suicide by gun. What of the various other quick suicide methods? A person can quickly jump off a bridge or out of a window or balcony or anything that is several stories upward. A person can cut themselves. A person can jump in front of a train, car, or bus. I’m saying that folks can do this but folks HAVE done those things and no one bats an eye, yet if they commit suicide by gun, people go apeshit.

Additionally, the last time I posted about this subject, the mentioned smart gun approximately $2,500 in price. WTF!?

What happens when the tech somehow glitches? If it has electronics, there will always be the chance of glitches and other electrical issues. If it malfunctions when needed (ie, emergencies such as self defense), the gun is useless.

All guns eventually need to be cleaned and oiled. How does the electrics within the smart guns withstand repeated cleaning and oiling over the life of the firearm? If it malfunctions because of cleaning and oiling, the gun is useless.

The gun can be activated via smartphone app…WTH?? There could be a crack/hack that could circumvent the “smart” aspect of the gun. Any app can be hacked. This would probably be one of the first things the hacker community does. Also, if an app is communicating with any module that’s installed within the gun, the gun could be susceptible to outside malicious attacks (the gun would probably be listening for any commands that the phone might send and it would probably do it over NFC, WiFi, or Bluetooth…all such things have been hacked in the past).

Smart guns with all that tech can probably also be traced. What’s to say that such a gun isn’t beaconing somewhere and sharing information (like location)? Most gun owners I know don’t want such information piped to Big Brother. Even if the government weren’t involved, an app means that the selling company is aware of who is using their app, which means they can track every user of the smart gun. Yeah, F that.

There are many aspects of smart guns that folks think solve a particular problem but, IMO, it causes more problems.

Let’s say I buy this particular handgun. What’s to stop me, the owner, from committing suicide with it? Nothing! Folks commit suicide with their own firearms all the time…they don’t typically use someone else’s.

This could solve the issue of folks leaving their guns where non-owners can find them, yes, but if folks locked up their non-smart handguns, that could lessen kids shooting themselves or prevent adult folks using the discovered gun to commit suicide, but again, such things could be lessened by locking up unused guns.

As well, when has a cook not been burned? I find it highly unreasonable to expect there to be no firearms mishaps ever, especially in a country where 2A and (millions of) firearms are prevalent. Shit will happen. That’s not an excuse for negligence but there are an awful lot of humans in the U.S. To think that folks will always follow laws and common sense is a very bad expectation.

There’s another problem. Guns in gun safes aren’t readily available. If someone breaks into your home and attacks you before you can get to the safe to obtain the gun, owning the gun is useless. At some point, you’ve to have a gun on standby (at the ready) to properly be prepared. A violent felon won’t stop to give you the time you need to get to your gun that you put in your safe for safety’s sake. Imagine if cops kept their guns in safes until ready to use…but wait, they don’t do that…they always have one readily available. I carry a gun 90% of the time, even in the house. If I’m asleep, the gun is in the nightstand drawer that is next to my bed. When I shower, it’s in the bathroom with me, on the counter next to the sink. While driving, it is either on me or in the console. I don’t typically go places that don’t allow guns, so I don’t normally leave it in my car unattended (for someone to steal). Any unused guns are locked in my large safe. All of this works for me. I’m not sure why it’s not working for other folks, but I won’t be forced into a smart gun just because some folks can’t get it right.

The only folks that are going to buy such a gun are cucks or Liberal-minded folks that think that inanimate objects kill. You can own a gun and also teach your children to not play or touch the guns. We teach kids about how to avoid pedophiles and how to not play with fire (or how to avoid or not do anything else that can hurt/maim/kill), yet there are kids that still don’t pay heed. That’s not the fault of the kid, but that isn’t the fault of said inanimate object or the object’s owners, either. Sometimes kids will do stupid things…we ALL have done stupid things as kids. Kids aren’t infallible, but neither are parents (yes, some parents do some dumb shit, even smart ones, because most parents aren’t taught to be parents…they learn on the fly). At some point, we should stop blaming inanimate objects or even the parents of kids, since many kids WILL find ways to do things they’re not supposed to do.

Our society is always attempting to find solutions to problems that could be better solved by doing things that most folks think is the difficult way. When you see someone that’s having mental difficulty, speak with them and alert folks that can help. We also need to provide better mental health services. We always pretend that there’s an issue but never put the money aside that could assist in making mental health services better. It seems folks always want to avoid or ignore that aspect of things, but gravitate toward the seemingly easier and seemingly quicker solution to things: banning or restricting gun usage or creating “smart” weapons.

If we applied the same efforts and fortitude that we’ve been throwing at gun control to things such as finding cures for mental health issues, cancers, or dementias (examples of illnesses that tend to be ravaging us), I truly think we’d have found a cure or at least found several illness blockers. Look at how folks with HIV are now surviving for decades (and there’s recently been someone that received a stem cell treatment that apparently cured their HIV).

Until our society as a whole grows the backbone to face the issue of mental health and it’s related issues that currently affect this country, this problem will NOT go away. Don’t expect me to give up a right or buy a smart gun to “remedy” mental health issues when no one has tried to bolster our mental health system. There are enough laws and so-called solutions (in fact, there are too many). Biden and his cadaver supporters like Pelosi keep chanting that the 2A isn’t absolute. No shit…there’s been no other amendment that has so many conditions or qualifiers. This country would’ve burned to the ground if we’d ever done such things to any of the other rights within the Bill of Rights.

2A anti-gun Biden Colion Noir ghost guns POTUS UBC universal background checks

Video – Biden’s Anti-gun Tactics & Executive Orders

https://fb.watch/4NON83aGlz/

It’s a bold lie that the majority of the US favors background checks.  Colion Noir provided details to refute that awhile back (https://www.facebook.com/COLIONNOIR/posts/3791001044282958).

It’s also bad (and quite bold) for a standing US president to say that NO amendment is absolute when the 2nd affirms the inalienable right to bear arms.  That statement should be raising quite a few eyebrows.  2A doesn’t grant citizens the right.  2A isn’t the US government giving citizens permission to bear arms.  2A is the government acknowledging that the right exists and is beyond the US government to take away.  Some believe (as I do) that it is a God-given (or natural) right.

So he’s going to ban ghost guns.  Why?  A mass shooter has never used a ghost gun to commit atrocities, so why the focus on ghost guns?

He’s pushing universal background checks.  Why?  There have been mass shooters committing atrocities in states that require universal background checks.  UBCs don’t stop mass shootings.

The tactic of creating many laws to impede lawful abiding gun owners is ridiculous.

anti-gun blog firearms ownership politics stewardship

About those recent comments…

About the political aspect of this blog: please do not leave offensive comments and later say, “no offense.”  Please do not assume I’m a “Tea Bagger”.  I’m not.  Please do not bring any anti-gun mentality to this blog.  If you don’t like what you read, move on, because I probably didn’t have you in mind when I decided to create the blog…the internet is HUGE and you should be able to find something more to your liking than this blog.

What you think is radical may in fact not be as radical as you think.  It’s only radical because you don’t believe or understand the subject matter.  Radical Islamics…THEY’RE radical.  Fostering gun ownership in a nation that gives it’s citizens the right to bear arms…that’s not radical.  You also may think that some of what’s posted here is dramatic.  If you think so, this blog isn’t for you.

Gun topics tend to bring out the nastiness in people.  Guns are tools, just as anything tangible in today’s world is.  I speak of politics because of today’s stance against firearms (and stewardship means talking about ALL aspects..you don’t dodge subjects because people might not respond well to the subject matter).  I speak to educate those that are curious about firearms and the laws governing them (and there are a LOT, so you tend to see a lot of posts on this blog regarding politics — there’s no way around that).  I’m not waiting for someone who is against gun ownership to start a debate.  That’s not what this blog is about.

I’m trying to foster stewardship and education.  If you hate guns, this blog is NOT for you.  I’m not trying to appease those that are against gun ownership nor those that think “they’re not out to take your guns”.  I’m not trying to cooperate with anti-gun folk, so there’s no compromise when it comes to my posts on my blog.  I don’t need convincing, either.

anti-gun Chuck Grassley myths myths about guns Senator The Daily Signal

10 Myths About Guns – Commentary by Sen. Chuck Grassley

http://dailysignal.com/2016/01/07/10-myths-about-guns/

Every one of these myths are addressed and clarified in the article.  If every anti-gunner studied this, they’d have no leg to stand on, argument-wise.  Maybe that’s why they chose to stay ignorant…it takes away their arguments.  The kicker is that IT’S ALL TRUE.

This is good reading.  I urge everyone to read it, with an open mind.
