We’ll Fight You for Your Guns and We Will Win

courtesy Fox News

“The gun lobby sued me – twice – and they lost – twice.

“When we win, we are going to ban assault weapons in Florida.

“And if the gun lobby fights us – and they will – we’ll beat them again.” – Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, Democrat candidate for governor via Twitter. Gillum was recently endorsed by Everytown for Gun Safety.

          Actually, it is not. The proof? Nobody, not even in here, publicly agrees with you.

          The truth is that America is in that awkward stage of a nation’s lifecycle, when it’s too late to save/fix things by working within the system, but still too soon to start over by lining people up against walls.

        2. avatar BlazinTheAmazin says:

          You say yourself that it is too late to fix the current system so it sounds like the only thing left to do ius choose that “other” option.

          @Jonathan-Houston: Your point is well-taken: “America is in that awkward stage of a nation’s lifecycle, when it’s too late to save/fix things by working within the system, but still too soon to start over …”

          Here is the way I see it. So long as the protestors (as I will call them here) hold faith in the ballot-box they will refrain from starting over, i.e., “to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government”. The difficulty is that faith in the integrity of the ballot-box is eroding; talk of voter fraud is building. The worst aspect of this development is that the states are resisting efforts to investigate and reform; such common-sense measures as voter-ID. Democrats insist that there is “no evidence” of widespread fraud – while at the same time insisting that there is nothing to be investigated here.

          Eventually, faith in the ballot box will be lost. It’s not necessary to reach the point where there is proof-positive that too many elections have been won by fraudulent votes. All that is necessary is for the PERCEPTION to pass the tipping-point. What if the next elections for President, Senate and House are all won by legitimate votes but far too many protesters BELIEVE they were won by fraudulent votes? In the absence of investigations and safeguards to refute such a belief, perception will be the only “fact” that matters. The perception of the electoral legitimacy of the Federal government will be lost. The government will rule withOUT the consent of the governed (in the protesters’ view.) Then what?

          Will the Federal government cease to function? By ones and twos, Red states will refuse to acquiesce to Federal laws. This has already happened with pot; the first fully-successful defiance of Federal law is sweeping the nation. Thirty states – 60% – have passed at least medical marijuana laws in defiance of the Federal ban. With just a few more, they would have enough states to pass a Constitutional amendment. Through “nullification”.

          Will this occur with other laws; likely gun laws in some states, immigration law in other states? Will Congress withhold funds from some scoff-law states while keeping others on-the-dole? What if California gets Federal funds (despite its sanctuary immigration policy) but Kansas gets cut-off for its 2A protection law?

          Hopefully, the lesson of Ft. Sumpter has been learned. But then what? What will be the process “to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government”? Will it be by peaceful means (such as pot)? Or, will it be “up in arms” such as at the Bundy ranch?

          Somehow we need to discover and exploit opportunities to express our objections. By way of illustration, by buying 100 million new 80% receivers.

          MarkPA, The progressives argue that this country is a democracy and that rights can be voted out through majority opinion. For example, WA initiative No 1639, currently on the November ballot, “…would require increased background checks, training, age limitations, and waiting periods for sales or delivery of semiautomatic assault rifles; criminalize noncompliant storage upon unauthorized use; allow fees; and enact other provisions.” Of course, this “law” will pass in WA criminalizing constitutionally protected rights. Even the language “semiautomatic assault rifles” is propaganda to unhinge the constitution. The process to destroy the Republic is already underway with voted in ability to “enact other provisions” that not only remove rights from the law abiding, but set the constitutionalists apart as criminal.

        7. avatar MarkPA says:

          Well, clearly, this is a mis-statement. The USA is a constitutional republic. It’s voting franchise is relatively democratic (since Jackson and the Reconstruction amendments.) Congress can pass any laws they like in defiance of the Constitution. The judiciary has assumed the role of ruling laws unConstitutional. If they don’t do this job then we the voters have to reel-in the Congress-critters.

          Our problem is, voters aren’t doing their jobs. Who is to blame? We the People.

        8. Just for the record, that “awkward stage” comment comes from Claire Wolfe’s 101 Things to Do ‘Til the Revolution (1996), and here is its original form:

          America is at that awkward stage; it’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

          Someone else may have said it earlier, but some time ago I did a search and couldn’t find any prior comment similarly worded.

          https://libertyplanet.wordpress.com/2013/02/01/9-stages-of-civilization-by-sir-alex-fraser-tyler/
          Now for the big question, where is the current US on that scale, and how can we get off this circle jerk and stop making the same mistakes over and over and over again?
          Well, one thing is certain, pretending that this isn’t the way it always works is a KNOWN FAIL!
          Perhaps it is finally time for some deep thinking about it?

        10. avatar MarkPA says:

          I think we are transitioning from apathy to dependence. Nevertheless, several significant things are occurring.

          Interest on the national debt is approaching the budget for the Defense Department. Interest rates are at historically low levels. When interest rates rise, they will put such pressure on the Federal budget that discretionary spending will be squeezed out. Many populous and welfare-generous states are in grave financial difficulty. We are probably at the peak of the Laffer Curve, so raising taxes is counter-productive. Increasing dependence is coming to a grinding halt.

          Illegal immigration (primarily) and legal immigration (secondarily) are being recognized by the tax-paying middle-class. Likewise, the trade deficit and outsourcing of clerical labor via the internet. These voters are now being given a shot-in-the-arm with a sudden rise in the employment environment. Will they give-it-all-up in exchange for a promise of dependence?

          Crime control continues to be a problem which governments seem incapable of dealing with. Prisons are filled to capacity so the revolving-door is government’s answer. Prisons don’t re-habilitate; they provide Master’s degrees in criminology. The relationship is antagonistic between the police and the neighborhoods that are most need policing.

          Trust in traditional institutions of Church, State, organized-labor, celebrities, men-of-means, Masters-of-the-Universe and others is deteriorating.

          I see upheaval in our future, but not necessarily a disillusion of our republican form of government.

          We are already in a civil war and have been for several decades. The anti gun crowd didn’t pop-up over night and almost daily we are hearing or reading about some new or different slant to their false claims. At the same time and since the beginning of this present “civil war” the NRA and others have been on the front lines of defense. Think about all the friction that exist between the anti gun crowd and the 2A supporters. Just because shots are not being fired is no indication that we are NOT in a civil war! The battle rages! Call it civil or cold, but a war none the less………

        @Blazin

        It’s too late to work within this broken system, but I don’t subscribe to the notion that the only alternative is illegal violence. A Constitutional Convention could be another alternative, for example. As for anyone contemplating illegal actions, I’m only stating the obvious that virtually no one else is on board with that. I wouldn’t support that, either.

          If the elections process is corrupt, what makes you think a Con con wouldn’t also be corrupt? We could wind up with the Communist manifesto as our new constitution.

        2. avatar Kenneth says:

          That is the goal. The antis and Statists have been pushing for a con con since I was in High School, and I have a big gray beard now. Its their big brass ring, the way to rewrite everything he way they want it in one feel swoop. One can see why they so love the idea, once it is realized that they have zero knowledge of the real world, and so think that some words on a piece of paper have actual power in the real world.
          All my life they have been pushing the idea that this NEW Constitutional Convention idea they have can be limited to just one change, or just one subject, but OFC, upon close scrutiny that idea just falls apart, like all the other Statist lies and idiocy.

      1. avatar CZJay says:

        The government isn’t afraid of wimpy handguns. They have clothes that will stop such weak guns. They don’t want the people to have firepower that can defeat their easily wearable body armor. You know those so called “cop killer” bullets? They don’t want you to have any “government killer” calibers, if anything, they will allow you to have .22s or air guns. They know criminals will get whatever they want, but they are not afraid of those losers, they are afraid of righteous people overthrowing them.

        Even if you shoot someone in the head with a .22 they could survive:

        1. avatar MarkPA says:

          You make a good point distinguishing between handguns and rifles (and shotguns to a lesser extent).

          Gun suicides aren’t going to drop until they round-up the single-shots. Long time to achieve that goal. Homicides aren’t going to drop until they figure out a way to stop home-manufacture of Glock-a-likes and smuggling of parts.

          Congress needs to think about rifles (and shotguns). How do they put the genie back in the bottle? If they really try hard enough to make progress they will bring out all the gun-owners who heretofore were not voting or settling for the entrenched Democrat or RINO. They can NOT risk doing this.

          So, what is the game in Congress? I think Congress-critters will continue to play with gun control as the cat plays with the mouse. Will the mouse rise up and “roar”? Not until the cat pushes its luck one new gun-control too many. Then, finally, the 80-million complacent gun-owners finally show up at the polls.

          The “cat” can’t stop playing with the “mouse”. There is too much Progressive money pushing for one more gun-control law; and then another and another. Year after year one more law will pass. But, they won’t go after the rifles – except the black rifles of course. But, eventually, they will get to the deer rifles, the shotguns. Will that bring the voters out?

If they (the Republican Senate Judiciary Committee members) are looking for the media and Democrats to play fair at anything they are all way too naive to be sitting senators. They should just all go back to the farm or whatever.

          This is an epic battle and most thinking folks can see it for what it is. A plan to de-rail any judicial nominee put forth by this President, plain and simple. The Trump hatred is so intense and their base is so unhinged that these Democrats are liable to do anything, nothing is off the table. Those engaged in politics on the Republican side should be aware and be ready to fight fire with fire if necessary. If you don’t have the stomach for the fight then retire already and give someone who actually gives a damn a chance.

      I don’t why any true conservative would hate De Santis. He’s a real conservative and far more true then weak Putnam ever would’ve been, and DeSantis beat Putnam by a LONG shot. The GOP primary generated more votes then the DNC one, so that’s good news.

    First off even if Gillum gets elected Republicans will still hold a majority in the state house & senate and he really won’t be able to ban much of anything unless a bunch of Republicans flip and vote on gun control which I highly doubt as I know as soon as this asshat proposses ANY new gun control legislation or any Dems do the phone lines and emails at the capitol will start blowing up like they did last time after Parkland but I suspect even more so as we got stuck with several new BS gun control laws. Additionally I suspect if Gillum does get elected and goes full on with his gun control agenda all he will accomplish is to REALLY energize the Republicans and gun owning independents in the state who may have become complacent over the past decade thinking nothing could happen here has FL has been so gun friendly (well many consider that it is) and that nothing can change that.

    1. avatar TheUnspoken says:

      Nah the Republicrats like Negron, Galvano, Aaron Bean, Rene Garcia, Anita Flores, etc will be happy to work with the Democrat Governor, and still be able to ban gun accessories they don’t like such as bump stocks, match triggers, maybe they will go after arm braces next… Body armor? Who needs that to hunt deer? Do not forget that Negron put a 2 year ban on AR sales up for a voice vote and claimed it passed, until a couple of senators demanded a roll call count. And he got the bump stock ban including possession in by voice vote as well.

      I will definitely vote for Desantis.

      1. avatar Docduracoat says:

        The unspoken has hit the nail on the head.
        I live in South Florida and I have been a single issue voter for gun rights for 18 years.
        Jose Negron was the Rebublican President of the Florida senate. Renee Garcia was ordered by him to block open carry and campus carry. And he did. He was replaced on the committee by Anitere Flores, who followed Negrons orders and blocked these bills in committee again. Now Negron has a new hand picked senate president who will also be a RINO on gun rights.
        Voting for Desantis will be easy, Rick Scott needs to be punished for signing the bump stock ban.

      … [Gillum] really won’t be able to ban much of anything unless a bunch of Republicans flip and vote on gun control which I highly doubt …

      You mean like several Florida Republicans did just after Parkland? And you think they would not flip again because, why exactly?

    Well we will see if Florida can fight for civil rights or will Florida be like California. The voters too busy engaging in other activities deep sea fishing, sexual liberation, marijuana intoxication, shooting up crystal meth to improve their sexual experience. All things more important than voting for civil rights.

    Or will self-hating white people feel the need to vote for a gun grabbing black man. Just like they voted for Obama. I believe the founder of TTAG openly admitted that he also voted for Obama.

        I don’t care what people do in the privacy of their own home or the privacy of their orgy ballroom. Most of these people want societies blessing. That they can’t have. But in California they demand the blessing of total strangers.

        High Bridge Arms, the last gun store in San Francisco, was forced to close by these same people, who claim they want their civil rights protected, because gun civil rights are not as valuable as sexual liberation. Or pot smoking in public.

        Because of the Mulford Act I view the Second Amendment differently than the sexually liberated or pot heads.

  26. avatar Slim says:

    I live in Florida and keep up with this guy’s nonsense. Gun’s are just the tip of the iceberg.
    He wants to be a sanctuary state, abolish ice, implement a 40% corporate tax and 15% state income tax and add a billion in state entitlements.

    If you want use the doom a gloom senario to stimulate desantis voters, so be it. Regardless, Gillum will lose by 15-20 points on the sheer economics of his campaign.

    Btw. Desantis had more votes than all of the major democrat candidates combined .

    Democrats have a track record of inflating their polls and most of their demographic doesn’t even pay attention to politics let alone vote…

  31. avatar Adam says:

    More proof that we need to continue to hold our noses and vote for Republicans. SCOTUS is far too important to lose and we need to absolutely crush progressives when it comes to judges. We need a 6-3 or even 7-2 conservative Supreme court and we absolutely need to stuff the lower courts with conservatives so we can live out the rest of our days knowing that all progressive laws will be declared unconstitutional even if they take back the presidency and senate within the coming decade.

  32. avatar Rex says:

    The Governor isn’t a king waving a royal wand to change laws. The Florida State congress is held by Republicans. If Gillum win ( which he won’t) the gop held state legislators will fight him on every issue.

    It’s easy to get caught up in political Fear Mongering but in reality you have to step back, relax and look a things logically.

  38. avatar Cadeyrn says:

    They’re not going to win today or tomorrow or even next week.

    They’re going to win once the 30 million or so illegals who have entered the US primarily from Communist or near-Communist nations have natural born US children and raise them to be good government supporting Communists. If they have 4 each, in 18 years they’ll add 120 million new Commie voters. If they wait another 18 years with another 2 each there will be 240 million and the battle is over.

    They know this which is why they fight the Wall so hard. Demographics are like The Terminator. They can’t be bargained with or reasoned with. They Will Not Stop. Ever. Until you are dead.

    Isn’t it interesting how the most vociferous gun control advocates tend to have serious ethical and legal issues of their own? Pervy Weinstein said he’s making it his mission to destroy the NRA. GEE I WONDER WHY? The rampant sex abuse and child molestation in the sleazy world of show biz has been a poorly kept dirty little secret for 100 yrs. Now that it’s out, it’s abundantly clear why so many overpaid mannequins from Hollywood throw their star power behind the gun Grabbers. Looking pretty in front of the step and repeat backdrops spewing meaningless rhetoric about the “epidemic” of gun violence

  49. avatar MaddadySSA says:

    And it’s the same as it ever was. One of the first pieces of gun control legislation, the Sullivan laws of NY from 1911. What the gun grabers don’t tell you ids WHO those laws are named for. Big Tim Sullivan, a Tammany Hall kingpin even more corrupt than the Clintons. He wanted to make the streets of NYC safer, for him and his croonies as well as the muggers and gangsters in his back pocket. After all, victims who can shoot back are bad for business.

  50. avatar MaddadySSA says:

    A few more examples, Charles Rangel, never mind his tax evasion issues, that POS should’ve been arrested in 1972 for obstructing justice, if not aiding and abetting in the murder of NYPD Officer Phillip Cardillo. Here’s a doozy, fmr Cong Leeland Yee, a friend of Shannon Watts, aka Gun Control Barbie, who introduced legislation that would’ve effectively nullified the 2A. He was forced to resign from the House because he’s currently serving time in Fed prison for….wait for eeet…GUN RUNNING! Remember Bernie Ward, the anti gun liberal talk show host sensation who was gonna put Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity in their place. He’s spending the rest of his miserable life as a registered sex offender after dong time for kiddie porn. And speaking of pervs, fmr Seattle mayor and member of Everytown for Gun Sense Ed Murray declined to seek re election. Could it be because he’s under investigation for molesting a bunch of boys including his 9-yr old cousin? Then there’s the Gun Violence Death Clock put up near Times Sq back in 1990. It was funded by Robert Brennan, a junk bond dealing scam artist who makes Bernie Madoff look like Mother Theresa. He had just gotten out of the joint for securities fraud and other such niceties. I’m sure he had a pragmatic reason for performing this public service. Hey, if I scammed all those old folks out of their life savings I too would be scared out my wits if they, their kids or grandkids had easy access to firearms. Just sayin’

    1. Only Holocaust deniers exceed the anti-gun cult in sheer dishonesty, invincible ignorance, and malice.

  51. avatar MaddadySSA says:

    And the hits just keep on coming! Kenneth Glasgow, a gun control activist, and Al Sharpton’s half brother, is currently in the Dothan, AL lockup facing capital murder charges. Seems a few months ago, just hours after speaking at a March For our Lives Rally he hooked up with a bunch of thugs intent on robbing someone, when one o his accomplices shot a woman with an ILLEGALLY obtained handgun. These examples are just the tip of the iceberg. Most gun control advocates have personal vested interests not in “sensible” gun laws, but an outright repeal of the 2A, for obvious reasons.

    It is interesting. Perhaps if he took that same passion to fight and placed it in the right place he would make a true difference. Rifles are not by far the largest cause of firearm murder death, no where close.

    https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2017/crime-in-the-u.s.-2017/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-11.xls

    And most murder falls into the gang related category. So young men typically under 30 shooting and killing other similarly aged young men and far too many innocent folks with their misses. Almost everyone of these men is a felon and/or minor and cannot legally possess a gun. So they are committing a crime. Also murder is a crime. So none of this matters to them meaning more gun control and taking of guns will not matter to them. We have a GANG problem in this country with over 30000 gangs per law enforcement stats. https://www.fbi.gov/investigate/violent-crime/gangs

    He should spend his time and efforts is figuring out why these young men are behaving in such a manner. And he should take work with the police to take real actions to address and hopefully solve the issues and and provide real harsh consequences to those who act in such a manner. Then maybe he will make a real difference and we will see murders go down significantly.
