Remember the “Trayvon Amendment” that we posted a few days ago? You know, the one that “repealed” the Second Amendment, labeled the NRA as a terrorist organization and levied a tax against gun owners to pay reparations to black people? Well, they saw our post, read the replies in the comments section and decided to post a little something extra themselves. Make the jump for their response to our collective WTF . . .
Your movement is exactly that. Excrement. Bile. Bodies in the street due to your religion of carrying weapons of mass destruction to protect your truck and your tooth.
My measures would ELIMINATE gun violence. It would ELIMINATE poor black children being murdered by sociopaths (and then being aquited by a jury of racists like B37).
Nothing good has come from Florida. The dictator Bush, Trayvon’s death at the hands of a sociopath.
We will win this war.
So, quick rebuttal.
First, the claims of “blood in the streets” as a result of concealed carry have been thoroughly debunked. Gun owners are more law abiding than even the police, committing an order of magnitude fewer murders. And for those who are appalled at the level of “gun violence” in this country, one would think that they should look for a more effective way of reducing those numbers than blaming the 9.4 million people who are responsible for fewer than 55 murders a year* while looking past the other 15,000 annual firearms-related deaths.
Second, the measures listed wouldn’t eliminate “gun violence.” The exact same measures that this person is demanding are in place today in Venezuela and Mexico. How’s that working out for them? Those are two countries with the highest firearms-related murder rates in the world. Even Norway has similar measures, and that didn’t stop a guy named Anders Breivik from committing one of the worst mass shootings in the history of the world. Ever. The idea that a piece of paper will solve all the ills of the world is more than a little naive.
Basically, this person is wrong on all counts. Just FYI.
* This site lists a total of 9,430,810 licensed CHL holders. The VPC says that Florida has the most murders by CHL holders in the USA, at .583/100,000. Assuming worst case scenario, that’s 54.98 murders per year.
