Leftists, Guns and Fetid Dreams of Social Control.

Immediately in the wake of the latest firearms tragedy, this time at the Washington Navy Yard, we quite predictably get another wave of urban leftists and political hacks who want to blame conservative states for their gun violence problems.

Those other states haven't supplied anything.  INDIVIDUAL CRIMINALS made straw purchases (itself an illegal act) and then either themselves or in concert with other INDIVIDUAL CRIMINALS carried them into California and other states to supply them to another set of INDIVIDUAL CRIMINALS.  INDIVIDUALS committed these crimes, not the states of Virginia or North Carolina or any other, INDIVIDUALS.  It's not the states of Arizona or Oklahoma that are committing daily drive by shootings on the streets of Chicago or Detroit or Los Angles.  It's INDIVIDUALS.

It's exactly like as with prohibition. Where there is a will there is a way.  If the idiot left succeeds in imposing their utopian gun ban fantasy on an unwilling public They won't have to contend with semi-automatic AR15s and 9mm Glocks in the hands of registered owners, but fully automatic unregistered and illegal Sten Guns and Metral submachine guns that any competent machinist and sheet metal worker can make by the dozen.  All the plans are available on line and there a millions of surplus machine tools available for little more than a song.  Not to mention all the unemployed industrial workers that would love to make a few extra  bucks turning them out. 

Just as moonshine stills dotted the rural countryside during prohibition, the basement machine shop will dot the American landscape if the government bans personal firearms.  Ask the Israelis how it works.  A large percentage of the small arms they used to fight off the Arabs in their war of independence were produced, illegally, in underground workshops in the period between 1945 and 1948.

But then liberals and leftists are idiots, always have been and always will be.  Reality and human nature do not enter into their calculations of self-righteousness and fascist social control.  Unintended consequences are the last thing that crosses their mind.

Ban the legal and registered ownership of this.
And you will get an explosion of illegal ownership of this.
All it takes is one of these,
one of these. 
and one of these.

  1. Nah. The mexican cartels will sell military grade weapons to anybody with cash. If all guns are illegal, why not by full auto M4s, grenade launchers and RPGs?

    1. Stens are cheap and easy to make. M4s, ARs etc. would require CNC machines and programing and high tech materials. Not impossible certainly, just more complex and expensive.

      The government won't close the border to illegals but watch how quick they would do it in the arms traffic started coming in this direction.

  2. Most of the time I don’t make comments on websites, but I'd like to say that this article really forced me to do so. Really nice post!
