“Guns Aren’t Necessary Anymore” – A One Sided Conversation With a Friends Mother

A friend recently told me a story about a conversation she had with her mother about gun control.

My friend is an intelligent young lady who fancies herself a libertarian and, as such, supports the second amendment irregardless of the gun control debate.

She understands there are certain inevitable consequences associated with eliminating such a freedom.

That said however, the conversation with her mother didn’t go so hot.

It ended with her mother saying something along the lines of, “The second amendment was written a long time ago. Times have changed. Guns just aren’t necessary in the hands of the public anymore.”

I know I laughed out loud too!

We will see if she feels the same way when she finds out the harsh truth about the police.

What’s that harsh truth you ask? POLICE DON’T STOP VIOLENT CRIMES FROM HAPPENING. They show up afterwords to write reports and identify bodies.

I imagine her opinion on such a matter would change real quick if a rapist broke into her house tonight and she found out that the police are 2 minutes out, all the while the rapist is upstairs with her  sorority-aged daughter.

All that aside, it is possible to prove her viewpoint one of ignorance without the spontaneous appearance of a rapist in my friend’s bedroom… Thank God…

We all know the stats. There is not a single study out there that truly supports gun control in America. Yes there may be one or two that show positive findings as a result of gun control, but dig a little deeper and you will find that they are conducted in a very Paul Krugman like manner.

However, my friend’s mother mentioned nothing of the end goal or statistics. She only mentioned that she believes the second amendment is no longer necessary.

So… Here is how I would approach such a statement… 😈

First off I would like to know what she (my friend’s mother) believes the second amendment is for. The Constitution I think is very clear about its purpose being to provide the citizens of the good old U.S.A. a means of overthrowing a tyrannical government.

I doubt my friend’s opinionated mother has ever read the Constitution, however if she acknowledges this to be the case then I say to her…

Now if that is not her understanding of the second amendment as I expect, then what is it?

Does she believe it to have been written so that hunting might be possible? In that case, I say to her…

Why do you believe recreational hunting is not necessary? Is it because you don’t partake in the sport? Is it because people die in hunting accidents? What about recreational drinking? People die doing that all the time. And it’s funny now that you mention it, if guns are off the table then alcohol should be too. NO MORE WINE FOR YOU MAMACITA!

Or…

Does she believe the second amendment was written to provide citizens with the means to protect themselves personally from general harm? If that is her understanding of the second amendment then I say to her…

What in the hell is your definition of necessary? Why is personal protection no longer necessary? Because we have the police!?

If she answered yes I would refer her to my earlier statements about rapists and reports.

So far we are still just wasting our time with this conversation.

The reason being is that we do not live in a democracy. We live in a constitutional republic. AND NO THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING. If they were people wouldn’t have a problem with the phrase constitutional republic, though that’s a discussion for another time.

In a constitutional republic mob rule does not dictate the outcome of every situation. A constitutional republic has a constitution (even more specifically a bill of rights) to lay down some ground rules. These ground rules touch on everything from gun control and slave labor, to women’s suffrage and freedom of speech.

The very purpose of our bill of rights (the first 10 amendments in case you didn’t know, Mrs. Friend’s Mom) is to protect inalienable human rights from those who disagree with them.

That said, if it’s a democracy you wish to live in rather than a constitutional republic that is fine…

Just know that if you come after my guns I am coming after your suffrage and right to open to your ignorant mouth.

Take a young commie under your wing!

Far to many old stuffy conservatives these days really don’t understand the problem at hand.

I  am always bitching about the problem at hand and thinking about ways to fix it on a large scale. These solutions usually involve a nuclear warhead or two and an undiscovered tropical paradise inhabited by beautiful capitalistic native women and an endless supply of fresh fish tacos.

What a guy can’t dream?

That in mind, one thing I have taken to all my life is becoming friends with my enemies (applies to my generation only.)

When I first started doing this it was primarily inspired by the passion that was exhibited by these people. Sure they stood against everything I stood for… but at least they gave a damn.

While this is still a primary factor in my friend selection I have realized over the years (mostly throughout high school) that the more I got to know these enemies of mine, the more I had in common with them.

See, it turns out pretty much everyone wants the same thing. Comfort, recreation and ease of living. The conversation takes a savage turn when any two opposing people discuss how to get there.

The problem with traditional Americans today is they don’t understand… AND I MEAN THEY REALLY HAVE NOT A FREAKIN CLUE! …as to how lost/indoctrinated/immature the younger generations are. And they have no one to blame but themselves. After all they did “raise” us.

That in mind I have made an observation. Anyone who as ever spent much time watching an “SJW” spew their bullshit knows it comes with a fiery wrath. One of passion and determination.

That fire… That drive… That refusal to stand down is a beautiful thing. It’s a very American thing.

It’s just misguided.

Now if we could somehow harness that energy and set it on the right track for their sake (let alone our own) we would have a pretty badass generation if you ask me.

Now don’t get me wrong, their are a lot of thumbsuckers out there looking for a handout.

The true socialist/anti-white/anti-male/anti-heterosexual bigots are out there.

But just like the true racists on the right give the right a bad name, the bigots on the left give a bad name to all on the left (even if the vast majority are indeed bad 😂.)

If I was fed the same rhetoric most hipster SJW millennials were growing up I may not be much different. Half of these kids don’t even know what it means to be objective, they have never been made to.

Hell, the sources they use on their college essays are curated by the Goddamn college!

My point is that if you told me that I live in America the land of the free and the home of the brave…

and that I should be proud and thankful because I live in the greatest country on earth…

but then told me it was only made great by leading partial genocide on “The Redman”

I would tell you to go fornicate yourself (in the words of @scrowder)

And with Howard Zinn included in our schools and real history/education left out… thats exactly what these kids are doing.

So take a baby Bernie under your wing, show them what’s what… You may find out they are more intelligent than you had once thought and that they are just locked into the narrative to tightly.

and if they turn out to be unsalvageable you can always mock them for entertainment purposes 😉

So it turns out I’m black!

With the Bruce Jenner transsexual story headlining there is much discussion about gender versus sex.

Many feminists and many transsexuals believe that there is a distinct difference between gender and sex. They believe that gender is nothing more than a social construct, while sex is something that you are born into.

This got me thinking, if your physical form does not matter in regards to the way that you are treated by society, what does?

What criteria do transsexuals need to meet in order to be considered a transsexual?

As I pondered this question, I happened upon an interesting thought.

If the physical form of a transsexual does not define their gender, what other things in the physical realm do not define a person’s identity?

What about race? Is race different from ethnicity?

For example, though my skin color is white, perhaps I feel black on the inside so what does that make me? Am I now a black American?

According to the logic exhibited by transsexuals and their supporters… it does?

And so I leave you with this…

Are we really willing to go down this road. Where things of an objective of nature are up to interpretation by each and every individual. Does this not seem problematic to you?

Ponder that my cracka!

What his he truly?

I hate with a fiery passion all that is pop culture.

Not because it is unimportant… but because it should be.

Any mature adult will tell you that discussions about the economy, taxes, and foreign policy are truly some of the most important discussions we could be having.

Why? Because these things directly affect the livelihood of the American public.

And for the record, despite any anecdotal evidence you might have to the contrary….

When a grown ass adult talks about the importance of these discussions in regards to the American public’s livelihood, they are most certainly talking about the livelihood of their offspring.

Yes children, your parents do actually care about you.

But I digress…

Pop culture irritates the hell out of me because it is something that I wish I didn’t have to pay attention too. Growing up a poser punk rocker from HB I couldn’t tell you the first thing about the new Eminem album, or what Snooki named her kid.

In time however, as someone who fancies himself politically aware, I have learned to adapt.

Even though the young have literally no skin in the game, they still have a say in the direction the country is to move.

Indoctrination in the school system and destruction of the family structure aside, the young are at an extreme disadvantage when it comes to the fundamental truths of life.

Many people believe that this is the fault of technology. These people believe that since our youths are constantly connected to the world wide web they are consistently exposed to an unrelenting stream of hedonistic, fallacious nonsense.

youts

I contend that this is the fault of the previous generation. It would not matter how much hedonistic fallacious nonsense our children were exposed to if their parents had just engrained some shred of conviction into their developing brains… but unfortunately for both their offspring and the future of our nation they haven’t…

And so I am forced to discuss topics which I find to be distasteful and uninteresting…

So… Without further adieu

Bruce Jenner….

He was all over the TV yesterday.

Why? Because he slapped on a pair of fake tits, changed his name and is now the hero of our generation… at least until next month when someone else takes pride in something that is far from accomplishment.

Bruce Jenner is now a woman… or at least he is posing as one.

He even made the cover of Vanity Fair Magazine accompanied by the headline “Call me Caitlyn.”

Within hours of the cover being published, his new twitter account had 1.1 million followers (Getting all of this straight from the link above)

This showcases the importance of such an event. The kids are all about it.

Importance established… Let’s think for a second

Yesterday afternoon on twitter I happened upon a tweet by a young lady who I assume to be local based on her twitter following.

This tweet caught my eye as it reminded me of an interview I listened to last week over at louderwithcrowder.com featuring Milow Yiannopoulos (known as @Nero on twitter) who is currently in the process of writing a book about “Gamer Gate.”

You see this misguided young lady’s tweet suggests that every person is born with a true identity. It is a narrative commonly found amongst those on the left who feel the need to justify what is clearly a mental illness… Transsexualism.

The idea is that even though you were born biologically a girl, your true identity (which they claim you are also born with) could be male (and vice versa.)

I thought this was very telling as the young lady who tweeted this also belongs to the “feminist” movement here in the local area.

Now this may not mean a whole hell of a lot to anyone who does not keep up on these cultural issues, however to those that do… Well, they should already see where I am going with this.

While listening to the afore mentioned interview last week I was intrigued by one bit of dialogue between Steven Crowder (the host) and Milo (the guest) on the topic of transsexualism.

Milo is a gay man, and as such one could only assume that he might have some insights into the LGBT community. So Steven asked him an interesting question regarding his position on transsexualism.

Milo proceeded to tell Steven that he had previously considered all those who claim to be “transexual” to be mentally ill. He then explained however that his opinion is slowly changing. Not because he has found new validity in the lack of scientific knowledge used to back transsexualism, but because he has found a very telling hole in the narrative of those who belong to the feminist/LGBT crowd.

You see feminists and other LGBT supporters who support things like “equality in the workplace” and  sexual identity, consistently claim that gender is nothing more than a social construct.

This helps them to promote behavior in females that is detrimental not only to their own well being, but society as a whole.

However…. If gender is nothing more than a social construct… how then can anyone be born with a “true identity?”

I continue to believe that transsexualism is a mental illness.

However, to those of you out there who disagree…

Take your pick.

Either transsexualism is a mental illness and gender is nothing more than a social construct…

Or gender is not a social construct and rather something you are born with, which supports the arguments of those who claim that transexuals are just seeking out their true identity.

You can’t have it both ways…

Thoughts: Consequences of conviction…

Almost every single one of us has dealt with some sort of discomfort on account of our convictions… Unless you are a leftist.

Whether it be religious or political conservative beliefs can make many situations difficult.

By now pretty much everybody has heard about the various Christian owned businesses that have been in some cases put out of business by the LGBT community and their blatant bigotry.

This is a very serious consequence of conviction. 

It takes great courage and tremendous amount of faith to stand up for something to a point of detriment to the livelihood of your family.

It is something that not many of us do. We make excuses for ourselves. We justify our denial of our beliefs by telling ourselves we had no other choice.

That “if I hadn’t complied theywould’ve  penalized my grade.”

“If I hadn’t complied they would’ve shut down my business.”

“If I hadn’t complied my friends might’ve unfriended me on Facebook”

“If I don’t comply, my reputation will be ruined.”

These statements allow us to justify out weakness.

These statements are a reflection of a sickness inside all of us.

It is said that the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing.

I think it’s safe to say we all at least try to be good people. So why then do we consistently fail our beliefs?

Hell, Peter himself denied Christ in the face of death. We are all guilty of it. 

But here’s the truly sick part…

We aren’t facing death. At most we face having to find a new job after a career is destroyed.

But there are those out there who are facing death. And they welcome it with open arms for the sake of there beliefs.

I leave you with this…

Who is truly a weaker human being?

The man or woman who’s loses his or her job and is forced to find new means of supporting his family for the sake of his values.

Or 

The man or woman who provides for his family with ease his whole life having abandoned his every conviction? 

What message do you want to pass down to your kids.

Thoughts: The conversation we should be having…

For a long time I have been a fan of Glenn Beck.

I grew up watching him on the TV long before The Blaze.

Even when The Blaze began, I remember the early days when he discussed policy and politics. He still does this today but the primary meat of his show has changed.

When he made the change I wasn’t ready to accept it.

I called him a fool and I diverted my eyes for a while out of anger. Anger because I felt abondoned by someone who shared my frustration with the freedom snatching left.

I have begun to watch him again purely out of depression. With all of the darkness in our world, his network offers a slightly more positive viewing experience. Something I need if I am to be happy as I am morally obligated.

However I still hadn’t accepted his message. The notion that we need to be having a conversation about culture and faith rather than one about politics and policy.

That is until Monday.

As I watched the riots take place on the streets of Baltimore I thought to myself “when did America become a third world country.” I chuckled a bit at the fact that the riots were a perfect illustration of why leftist policies fail.

But then I thought a little bit harder.

I realized that the riots were not a result of the policies, but that the policies were a result of the riots.

In other words, the behavior seen in the streets of Baltimore last night is behavior that I personally do not believe would be seen anywhere that true Americans are present.

What I am about to tell you is a bit simplistic, and I realize that. Many of these issues are far more complicated than just culture v.s. policy. However for the sake of our efforts, as conservatives with an outreach mentality, maybe it would be beneficial to take a look at the simplistic concept.

I had a conversation earlier today with a fellow conservative. He’s a good friend of mine, and had responded to my last post via email.

We began to debate a little. This is something that we do often. However, usually one of us is playing devils advocate. Rarely ever do we actually disagree.

He believes that it is leftist policy that is solely responsible for the behavior of those in Baltimore. I believe it’s something deeper (and no it’s not skin color so don’t go calling Uncle Al just yet.)

Halfway through our debate I realized that the entire reason we disagreed lie in the fact that we had a miss communication due to the verbiage that I used in my post.

The verbiage you ask?

The word Americanism.

You see I believe that Americanism can be summed up by one simple compound word.

“Judeo-Christian”

The behavior seen in Baltimore lacks any Judeo-Christian backing. It’s as if those people do not have any values beyond hedonistic natural instinct.

Interestingly enough, leftist policy lacks a Judeo-Christian value backing as well.

And though us Judeo-Christians like to give the masses the benefit of the doubt so often in saying that “they just don’t get it!” I believe they do.

It does not take a rocket scientist or any deep level of thinking to see that leftist policies are not only ineffective, they are immoral.

I contend that the liberal masses know this, and do not care.

During our debate, my friend posed to me a question. First, he laid out a scenario that he believes to be a somewhat accurate representation of what life is like in Baltimore. He asked me if I honestly believed that I wouldn’t act violently towards the Gov. if put in a situation like this.

Now I have not given you all of the details that my friend provided me within his premise. I have given you one though, and if you have keen enough eyes you will see it.

I believe this to be a false analogy. And that one detail I provided is exactly the reason why.

He then described some of the circumstances that lead the people in that area to the mindset that they posses.

Things like horrifyingly bureaucratic public schools.

And fatherhood being crushed by government dependent.

I do not deny that any of these things exist. And I do believe that there is a case to be made in regards to these things perpetuating the sickness that is present in places like Baltimore.

However they did not cause the sickness.

In other words bad schools do not create bad/indoctrinated children.

Bad parents do.

Government dependency does not produce fatherless children.

Premarital sex and poor spouse selections do.

No-fault divorces do not produce evil women that screw their men over.

Evil women create things like no-fault divorces.

So while a case can be made in regards to the perpetuation of certain behaviors by government dependency and leftist policy, I wonder if this is the correct conversation to be having.

I find myself thinking that it is not.

Maybe GB is right. Maybe we don’t win this through elections or policy.

Maybe the the only way to win this is through evangelism (or things of that nature.)

I wrote last night about MLK’s intentions being made clear through his actions. I think that we can all agree, the action of those in Baltimore last night were made loud and clear.

Morality, and therefore Americanism were nowhere to be found.

Americanism, An Idea…

If you want to be treated like an American, act like an American.

Injustice is a characteristic of our imperfect world. It will never disappear. It is a symptom of a much more serious sickness that plagues humanity. Evil.

However, injustice is a symptom that can be fought when it shows it’s face. Through organization, identification of convictions, and a strict adherence to said conviction, injustice can be treated effectively.

America is and always has been a light in the darkness of the world. A symbol of how organization and strong values can extinguish some of the most sinister evils.

Rioting, looting, vandalism, and anarchy are not American. These are things that belong to the third world.

Let us not be mistaken.

These things do not belong to the third world because said countries are impoverished and oppressed. It is because these things belong to the third world that it is impoverished and oppressed. 

Americans know that it is in our actions that our motives can be made known to all. Even in our bloodiest of wars over injustice conviction, organization, and a respect for ones fellow man made our intentions clear.

Americanism is a mindset. It is a mindset that we Americans invite everyone to participate in, in the hopes of making our great country a better place.

Martin Luther King Jr. was an American. He had his values straight, he was organized and he respected his fellow man in his pursuit for justice.

Through his actions his intentions were made clear. Though MLK and his fellow black Americans faced great injustice during segregation he held true to his respect for mankind and the pursuit of happiness. This is an act of true Americanism.

Third world behavior is not just. And this message has been stated loud and clear to the American public.

Justice is no where to be found in Anarchy.

If you wish to participate in this great nation, this great idea…

If you wish to achieve the American dream…

Than stop identifying yourselves through your actions as third worlders, people of a diametrically opposed mindset.

If you wish to be an American… Then you best act like one.
