If there’s anything anti-gunners hate more than guns, it’s people who can use them safely.
One of the reasons it’s so much fun to write about gun rights and the Second Amendment is the anti-gunners’ complete and utter cluelessness about firearms and how they work. There’s just something so extra about an entire movement, backed by literal billions of dollars, purpose-built to dismantle the American Constitution…staffed entirely by people who think that there is such a thing as a double-barrel magazine extended clip. And there’s nothing funnier than watching them demonstrate their ignorance for all to see. Here are three classics that prove that if there’s anything anti-gunners hate more than guns, it’s people who can use them safely.
1. Moms Demand Hot Action; Gun Safety, Not So Much
Let’s start with the picture above, shall we? Yes, that’s a real photograph of a local Northwest US branch of Moms Demand Hot Action giving a “gun safety presentation.” Don’t get me wrong; I’m all for people learning how to handle firearms safely, regardless of who’s doing the teaching. Unless, that is, they’re teaching people that the palm of your hand makes for a fine backstop. According to the linked article, that’s actually a bb pistol that the…ahem…”instructor” is holding up. But here’s the thing, Moms Deprived of Action for Too Long: Real gun-safety instructors know that bb guns aren’t toys, they aren’t blue guns, and they need to be treated with the same respect as a real firearm. Especially in a classroom setting. If I were a more suspicious guy, I’d suggest they’re trying to get people to hurt themselves. After all, anti-gunners aren’t exactly famous for their emotional stability and they do seem to have some pretty violent fantasies…
2. Creepy Uncle Joe Will See You in Prison
Creepy Uncle Joe Biden remains one of the anti-gunners’ best bets for the 2020 election. He has name recognition, a long career including a vice presidency, and the gravitas that many people think of as “presidential.” He also has some hilariously ignorant ideas about armed self-defense. His “buy a shotgun, buy a shotgun” video is a classic, but for those who don’t feel like watching it, here’s the best part:
“If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barrelled shotgun, have the shells, a 12-gauge shotgun, and I promise you, as I told my wife — we live in an area that’s wooded and somewhat secluded — I said “Jill, if there’s ever a problem just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put that double-barrelled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house.” I promise you, whoever’s coming in is not — you don’t need an AR-15. It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use, and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun.”
Ah yes, firing indiscriminately into the air. What could possibly go wrong? How silly of the NRA, the NSSF, the CCRKBA, GOA, JPFO, and the Pink Pistols! All this time, they’ve been telling people to be sure of their target and what lies beyond it, when they could have just realized that scatterguns are magic and the fact that you’re dealing with shot pellets and not a bullet means that the Three Rules no longer matter. Furthermore, there’s no tactical strategy that can outdo Biden’s:
- Alert intruders to your location with extra-loud noise
- Ensure your firearm is completely empty
3. Dianne Feinstein’s Forbidden Black Sin
I did say these were classics, didn’t I? Yes, this photograph of Dianne Feinstein is 20 years old, originally taken in a 1999 news conference about gun control. Good ole Dianne has been in the anti-gun business since many of the people reading this article were in the filling-diapers business, and (as you can see), she means business. Let’s see, how many of the Three Rules (or Four Rules, if you’re a Jeff Cooper kinda guy) is she breaking here? We’ve got the muzzle pointed in an unsafe direction, check. We have a closed bolt with drum magazine inserted, check. Finally, we have a finger on the trigger–chickety-check! There’s just something about seeing an anti-gunner with their booger-hook firmly ensconced on the bang-switch that makes me feel all warm and bubbly inside, like two hours after a big Mexican dinner.
Other than the fact that she obviously has no idea what she’s trying to ban or why, she looks pretty comfy up there with that AK-47. One almost has to wonder if Feinstein’s opposition to the black gun is rooted in something a little deeper and more primal, hmm?
