The Washington Post blurted out in a supposed news story this week that California lawmakers “will open a new front in the fight against gun violence” in 2014 with even more anti-gun/ammunition legislation. What happened to reporting? None of the bills passed last year will do anything to stem gun violence, they are only infringements on law abiding gun owners who comply with the stupidity.
This is scientifically proven. The gun bans, the restrictions, the paperwork nightmares do NOTHING to stem gun violence. Yet, I don’t know a single reporter in newspaper or television today that has bothered to report the science on these laws. They simply spew the rhetoric as though gun control helps stem gun violence. It’s just not so.
Where is the most violent gun crime in the nation? Chicago. Where are the most draconian gun control laws? Chicago. Where has some of the best research been done proving gun control laws don’t work? Chicago.
One of California’s usual anti-gun legislators, Sen. Kevin de Leon (D-Loontown), along with other Democratic legislators, now wants to have the state conduct background checks on people who purchase ammunition.
Here’s the moronic quote from de Leon in the Post story:
“Anyone can walk into any gun store, a bait and tackle store, and purchase all the ammunition they want to, no questions asked. The ammunition is the fuel that feeds the violence. The gun itself, the hand gun or the long gun or the high-powered weapon is the delivery device. The gas, the fuel, is the ammunition, and no one knows who buys it,” said de Leon.
Please tell me, oh brilliant one, how keeping a list of everyone who buys ammunition is going to help prevent or solve one crime, stop one violent act? It will be impossible to trace back ammunition at a crime scene to anyone. So all you’re really doing is creating an inconvenience to people who will legally comply. Let’s take his position to the extreme. Is de Leon stupid enough to think that if we simply banned guns and ammunition that criminals who are responsible for gun violence wouldn’t get guns or ammunition? The ban for meth and cocaine has worked so well. Banning guns has worked so well in Washington, D.C. and Chicago, the two most violent cities in America.
It doesn’t do anything positive. In fact, it is fundamentally racist. The bill would require that you show an ID to buy ammunition, and we all know that forcing someone to show identification is racist.
