Yes, It Is Gun Control. Picking The Rope That Will Hang You

Recently the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act and “FixNICS”. When I first wrote about this, my comment was that the supposed gun rights advocates, like the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the National Rifle Association (NRA), were claiming a big victory.

The Senior Vice President and General Counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation shows us just how these types think who want to limit your right to keep and bear arms by saying they are not doing that. “…And, despite what some have falsely claimed, it [H.R. 38] will do so while not interfering with the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans.

“The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) was established 17 years ago with Congressional passage of the Brady Act. Today, it is generally not known that the instant criminal background check system itself was the recommendation of the firearms industry, long before there was a Brady Act. The operating principle then and now is to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens — and the lawful commerce in firearms — while denying access to firearms by those prohibited by current law from purchasing or possessing guns.”

I have pointed out before the hypocrisy of those who eagerly rave that making laws to restrict gun ownership only punishes law-abiding people, and yet, a group such as the NSSF wants to sell us on the idea that THEIR “FixNCIS” is “is not a ‘gun control’ measure” and somehow will only affect criminals and the mentally ill.

In addition, the General Counsel believes that simply because a gun control law has existed for 17 years, with age it loses its label as gun control. He also points out that it was the gun industry that introduced background check gun rights limitations. Again, I ask, just because a part-time Second Amendment supporter creates a law limiting the inalienable rights of a person to keep and bear arms and to protect themselves, their families and their property, it is not gun control?

I get sick and tired of the fake gun rights people laying claim that nobody in America wants criminals and the mentally ill to be able to buy guns and their willingness to give up their rights thinking this will accomplish that. When the narrative fits, these clowns state that no laws will keep a criminal from getting possession of a gun. They then turn around a promote legislation that they are trying to promote as one that will keep criminals from getting a gun. This makes absolutely no sense. Somehow there must be money in this, but from whom?

And then there’s the “mentally ill” side of this fascist law that nobody seems to want to talk about. It’s so tidy and clean how NSSF presents this: “…to ensure that the system has all the appropriate disqualifying criminal and adjudicated mental health records put into it. We have been successful through our direct efforts with 16 state legislatures to pass reforms to ensure that there are no statutory, regulatory, administrative or procedural impediments to entering all appropriate records into NICS.”

Did you get that? “…to ensure that there are no statutory, regulatory, administrative or procedural IMPEDIMENTS…” (emphasis added)

Are we supposed to rest comfortably in the fact that any “mentally ill” person has been “adjudicated” before they can be cast into the fascist, firey pit of government hell? We are subjects of a very corrupt manmade government. Evidently, despite all that the citizen-subjects have been exposed to, especially in recent years, we are going to allow these pagan sodomites make an “adjudicated” decision on who is mentally ill and who is not? Are you serious?

When we have “ensure[d] that the system has all the” names of anyone deemed by Satan himself to be mentally unfit to own or buy a gun, we have successfully hung ourselves and we picked out the rope we want to do it with. How can we be so ignorant and willfully blind?

The Second Amendment is very simple. Men and their fascist government and totalitarian, brainwashed citizens have bastardized the inalienable right and turned it into something it was never intended to be. That’s what men do. Government doesn’t want you or me to have inalienable rights. They want to be the giver of any kind of right in order that they can withdraw it at any time. This act is made that much easier. Organizations like the NSSF do the bidding for the fascists.

As the old saying goes, you can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig. Don’t be fooled by fancy words from lawyers that the new rope that is going to hang you won’t hurt a bit.
