It's Easier to Buy Ammo Than it is to Vote

Jul 23 2012 Published by under Featured News

Creativity on the left seems to be lacking when it comes to gun control and voting. The latest mantra on our side is: It is easier to buy a firearm than it is to vote. Yes and no, not really. I bought an old WWII Soviet rifle called a Mosin Nagant 91/30 at Big Five a few years ago, shot it once and sold it. It was a pain to clean and because of the Bush economy, had to sell it (via an authorized Federal Firearm Licensed dealer) to pay for rent.

When I purchased the rifle, I had to show my I.D. answer a bunch of questions, voluntarily gave up my thumbprint and waited 14 days to get my rifle. On the other hand, I went to a gun show, bought an ammo can, bought 500 rounds of non-corrosive 7.62 X54r bullets, and went home. I then took my rifle to my friend’s gun shop, cleaned every thing, and when done, waited the next day to go shooting with my friend and his wife. Then I put the rifle in the trunk, locked the trunk and went back home

Every step of the way, I had to abide by every law and regulation in order to have a firearm. But for the bullets, I just had to show cash and buy the ammunition. Why? Why is it easier to buy ammunition for my rifle than it is for U.S. citizens to vote? How powerful is the NRA that the Koch Bros et al are willing to relax firearm laws, by keeping regulation lax on ammunition but not allow Democrats to vote?

I was having a conversation with a pro-gun right winger on Washington Times, and am waiting for a response. Here is how the conversation went:

Oh REALLY? You’ve heard the rhetoric from the sheep on the street to the Halls of Congress (and above)? Most Libitards are scared poop-less at the mere mention of “GUNS”! They want to GET RID of guns! Still, should they grit their teeth and drag themselves into a gun store they’ve a LONG way to go to out-gun Patriots, Tea Partiers and Conservatives in general.

Really? So most Republicans are cowards and need a sidearm in order to go: shopping, go to the movies, drive down the street, and ever since 9/11, you need to pack?

And now your panties are in a bind? Oh come on, what happened to your Jeebus and Sky-Spook protecting you from the evil terrorists? I thought your Cloud-being would throw bolts of lightning from heaven and protect his sheep? Are you that scared that you need a pistol (the bigger the better) for your protection? Or is it a Freud issue and it’s a phallic issue? No? You’re not gay? Fine, come to Los Angeles, without your pistol, walk with my Libtard friends to a market on 83rd and Hoover (8-trey Crips territory) at night and enjoy the night amongst fellow whiteys on the left. No? Scared? LOL.

And as for Libtards,

We’re NOT afraid of gun control. We’re not afraid of banning firearms to people who are convicted: felons, of domestic violence or forced by a judge to seek mental treatment. You RETARDicans are so paranoid, that I now why tigers eat their young. Grow up

Tim Fromla On the subject of “Gun Control” and affiliated issues, I commend you and “the Liberal Gun Club”!
But, it is eminently clear that you and yours DO NOT reflect the mainstream Liberal attitude on the Second Amendment! A few notable examples of the virulent anti-gun advocates are: the DNC in general, President Obama, VP Biden, Pers Morgan, Mayor Bloomberg, Janet Napolitano, Erik Holder, The Brady Campaign, Dianne Feinstein, Ed Perlmutter, Brian Malte, Saliman Rusdie, Brian Ross, most mainstream newscasters and commentators, a vast majority of the Hollywood “elite” and nearly EVERY Liberal person and organization of any significance! Now THESE I would have to consider Liberals who are so retarded in this area that they actually believe that a few more anti-gun Laws would have prevented this and other such incidents.

Robert R Compton Answer this question. What laws are there to prevent an illegal alien from purchasing bullets for a stolen firearm? A gun is only as good as the bullets it shoots. Would you go for regulating bullets? I.D. fingerprinting and so on? A firearm is a heavy paperweight without bullets

This is the mentality on the right when dissension is not taught. The GOP is their daddy (think phallic), the NRA is their mean uncle and combine firearms rights and “illegal Alien”, you have the makings of a calamitous disaster…if you know how to create one. I just did and not only is it fun, but it’s one step to shut the right down.

There needs to be a working consulting group for us to win. There needs to be a foundation where we too can create talking points against the right. We have the media, but we don’t have the centralized area in order to stand up to the right and their corporate masters. I mean arguably from 1932 to 1980, every Democratic and Republican president and Congress did the will of the people. As bad as Nixon and Ford were, we managed to make Nixon admit that we are all Keynesians, and Ford to not lower taxes for the 1%.

We need to make sure that by using our voices once more, we can make voting easier, a lot easier than buying ammunition. But unless we get our point across, we will remain where we are today. Paul Weyrich and Jude Wanniski’s legacy will always prosper. Voting will be impossible and buying ammunition will be easy.

Oh and even more hate from the right:

Tim U had me going until I got to the part of a judge forcing people to seek mental treatment……If that happened the Democratic (Libitard) Party would be nihl and void! Play with Your Gays if they don’t get You with Aids……maybe a law abiding gang member will get You! Sounds like Hell California……just wait till the Cloud-being has had enough…….hint learn to swim in boiling water!

Daniel Tempel First of all, a person CANNOT purchase a firearm if: They are a convicted felon, convicted misdemeanor domestic violence and if a judges orders a person to a mental hospital against their will.

“Tim U had me going until I got to the part of a judge forcing people to seek mental treatment……If that happened the Democratic (Libitard) Party would be nihl and void!

Second, what is nihl? You mean null and void? So much for English Only. And Daniel, and I’m assuming you’re a gun-totting Christian who loves America, right? Why don’t gun stores I.D. and fingerprint you for purchasing ammunition? No need? You are a U.S. Citizen? What about an illegal from say: Germany purchasing 9 m.m. for his stolen Beretta? 100s no thousands of rounds? If there were laws restricting bullets to these illegal aliens from Britain, even if the French person has a pistol, shotgun or rifle, would not the pistol be just a stolen paperweight?

Before you start spewing your rhetoric about not having gun control, think before you type. Oh and as for gays, guess what? There is an LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gays, Bisexual, Trangender and Queer) group called Pink Pistols who promote gun rights and safety, and many of them are conservatives…just like you. Oh and I’m straight. But just imagine, the guy next to you at the shooting range may be a homosexual? Imagine that. A gay shooter! Oh and I went shooting with a gay guy and his 357 Colt Python Blue Steel. We were having a shooting competition and guess what? He won.
