Korwin: Why Do You Support Background Checks? Questions the Kids Haven’t Had to Answer…

(Photo: March for Our Lives)

“The left is not in an all-out war against the Second Amendment,” say the people on the left who are in an all-out war against the right to keep and bear arms. “We’re not trying to take away all the guns. We understand you think this way, but it’s based upon a deception.”

No, it’s not. Read what retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens was granted space in The New York Times to say. Repeal the Second AmendmentDid democrats and the left attack him for this? No, they cheered. They paid for space to say it.

Socialists, politely called the left, are seeking to coalesce power into government hands. It’s what socialists have done since the communist manifesto was published. And they lie. They want all the guns. It’s the bottom line of the current debate, taken to its plain conclusion. Now they’ve got kids doing their bidding.

This is precisely why Americans are armed — to resist this, with force, if necessary. Unfortunately, Americans have become so wealthy and comfortable, the cold-dead-fingers motto has become just a slogan, no longer a policy. The NRA needs to wise up to this. So do you.

The left is unconscionably promoting children who have taken up their cause in complete ignorance of facts. The kids’ fears are real all right. Their desire for a solution to mass-murdering psychos and jihadis is real enough. Everyone shares their desire for a solution to that. Stop their psychotically lethal classmates, they cry. Their emotions are enormously real, and motivational and contagious. The left is banking on this.

What is not real are the facts, logic, and reasoning the kids are using, adopted in whole cloth from their left-wing puppeteers.

The same tired old rhetoric, which has been proven false time and again, the left has been spouting for decades — ever since the feckless Brady bill appeared and is now reappearing in new forms.

You remember:
— blood in the streets from carry permits!
— invisible guns!
— armed pilots shooting down their own planes!
— 30-day cooling-off periods for abusers, now trusted with guns for 30 years!

Sit down for it:
— educators (formerly teachers) will shoot themselves!
— and their students!
— and drop their guns
— which will go off!
— and forget them in bathrooms for kids to find!
— and shoot each other because they know nothing!
— And cops will shoot matronly old armed teachers
— because they can’t distinguish them from armed psychotic kids with ARs!
— if only they had to go through better background checks!

Who are these incompetent gunless boobs we’re paying to educate our kids? Teachers are incapable of handling firearms — or even teaching about them in a historical context? Toothless NRA gun bubbas can handle firearms but teachers can’t? Say what? Who starts these rumors? How do these people get dressed each day without help?

The abject stupidity of the arguments — with grade schoolers as ambassadors of irrational policy — is plainly evident by questions the media has avoided asking, and answers the children and their adult instigators obviously couldn’t answer if asked.

The lack of curiosity points out the poverty of leftist positions the kids are carrying for mind masters, the lack of grounding, and the dangerous, freedom-choking socialist stench that is a death knell for The American Way.

That may be a big hoorah for socialism, but it is not what America needs. God help us if a band of activated kids whines, nags and cajoles adults in Congress to placate them with reckless bills from which we may never be able to extricate ourselves. A few youngsters and malfeasants in Congress are especially sympathetic to the ignorant whining and thus extra dangerous.

This is not gimme-a-dollar-for-an-ice-cream ma, to a kid who is already packing too many pounds. This is a wild kid with no focus who’s demanding keys to dad’s ’Vette and broke into the liquor cabinet.

Reporters, get woke —

  • Questions you should be asking but aren’t, of the nation’s child-active anti-gun-rights commandos:
  • When you say assault weapons, what do you mean exactly? Get answers.
  • What specifically would be subject to confiscation, banned from sale, and how is this constitutionally permissible? Note: Reporters should estimate quantities involved and property values for well-researched articles.
  • What should the public then be allowed to have?
  • Who in your opinion should decide what firearms the public can have, and how is that power delegated?
  • You seek to limit magazine capacity. How many rounds should a magazine have?
  • How did you arrive at that number?
  • Experts say having less ammunition is dangerous in an emergency. How do you respond?
  • Would police accept reduced-capacity magazines, and why or why not?
  • A key purpose of the Second Amendment is to provide a balance of power between the public and the government. Are you aware of that, and does that matter?
  • Do the police and the public have any parity of arms?
  • Have you read any of the bills adults have proposed in response to your demands?
  • If it turns out the bills, which have only been proposed by democrats, do not match your demands, a) would you still support them, and b) Would you feel like you were being used for influence, but not for your goals?
  • Should background checks include gun registration?
  • What’s the difference?
  • Background checks have played no part in stopping the ongoing Muslim jihad mass murders, which have targeted the LGBTQ community and so-called “infidels.” How will your plan affect that?
  • Why are children becoming psychotic and willing to mass murder their classmates, when they never used to, even though guns used to be more available than they are today?
  • Will background checks address that problem (suddenly sociopathic children)?
  • Do drug companies have a role in that, as critics charge, which everyone is sweeping under the rug?
  • Are you or have you ever taken psychoactive prescription drugs and if so which ones, on whose recommendation?
  • Would you be willing to be permanently banned from ever owning a firearm yourself, for your own safety or the safety of others? Why or why not? If you’re underage, would you be willing to have an adult sign for you?
  • Is there any difference between the M1 rifle millions of soldiers brought back with them from World War II and Korea and the AR-15 rifle you want to ban, besides the wood vs. polymer stock?

    I’m not moved by the picture above. I see a bunch of brain washed kids sermonizing what they have been instructed to say by radical liberal anti-gun activist. Liberals use children, or abuse, to rile up emotion in the masses of incapable and unproductive, much like themselves.

    “A gun, like any other source of power, is a force for either good or evil, being neither in itself, but dependent upon those who possess it.”

    Good liberals never focus on the criminal that used a fireman to commit a violent crime, instead they focus on the firearm. In the liberal dystopia, there no criminals, only crime. In order to consolidate power requires disarming the law-abiding citizenry.

    Background checks are a consumer fraud. Only 62 Federal prosecutions followed 76,142 denials (in 2010) of purchase applicants. For the data see, Regional Justice Information Service, “Enforcement of the Brady Act, 2010”, 2012, p. 7 https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/bjs/grants/239272.pdf .

    A Government Accountability Office (GAO) Report (No. 18-440, Sept., 2018) shows that of 112,090 denials by FBI screeners, only 12,710 were sent for “investigation”. Of that number only 12 resulted in prosecutions!!

    Plainly, far more than 12 denials were fully justified. It is a Federal felony for a “prohibited person” to possess or to try to acquire any firearm. Such a small number of prosecutions shows that Federal authorities do little about stopping those, who seek to abuse firearms.

    It is not “a little bit scary” it is dangerously alarming. The future of America and the American Way is under attack by a venomous and rabid enemy who call themselves liberals or democrats. Our so-called educational system teeming mentally corrupted and confused adults, the majority of whom are drowning in the cesspool of liberalism, who by self proclamation are dubbed “Educators”. Corruptors of the young and impressionable is a more accurate label for these purveyors of misinformation and disinformation. Coupled with an ever deepening corruption in media and a plethora of grotesquely corrupt politicians American youth are being brainwashed at an unprecedented rate. It is way past time for Patriots to Stand and fight this evil force attacking our youth and America’s future. 2020 will be the most critical presidential election in the entire history of America and good MUST prevail lest we could lose everything our founders gave their lives for. Think about it!

    Schools no longer educate but indoctrinate. We all know that it’s true but they are so entrenched.
    I don’t know about you, but I’m tired about always hearing “It’s for the children”.

  • John W. Raccasi January 31, 2020, 9:49 am

    Since one of their proposed bills is no one under 21, lets make 21 for everything, driver’s license, the draft, alcohol, tobacco, marriage, voting, work….no rights as an adult, a tax paying citizen until the age of 21. They want these kids to make adult decisions before the age of 18 but not allow them to make every decision that they have a right to at or after they reach legal age. So lets do it, nothing for the children until the age of 21, that is where we fight back is by hitting them in their revenue stream. No taxes on income, on vehicle registration, sales tax and no training in the armed services. It’s always about the bottom line, shrink that and they will shrink with it…..and some of these people could use a shrink.

      John, the commie pinkos abhor your rationality. Didn’t BarryCare increase the dependent age to 26? Maybe we need to raise those you mentioned to that age!

  • Tom Fraser January 31, 2020, 7:55 am

    More NRA propaganda. Goebbles would be proud.

    • Dick Butkiss January 31, 2020, 12:13 pm

      Tommy, Goebbels was a socialist. Hitler banned civilian gun ownership. Read history, son.

      • Jay E. Simkin February 3, 2020, 12:42 pm

        The Nazis did not ban civilian gun ownership. The Nazis did much evil.

        Germany enacted “gun control” on 12 April 1928, before the Nazis took power. The goal: to curb fights between Nazi Party and Communist Party thugs.

        When the Nazis lawfully took power in 1933, they found in police stations, lists of firearm-owners. Plainly the Nazis did not allow those whom they hated – of whom Jews were only one group – to hold onto firearms.

        Disarming Jews was not decisive: Jews were only one percent of Germans. The prompt disarming of the many other Germans, who hated the Nazis, quickly gave the Nazis an iron grip.

        The Nazis were not then wildly popular. They won 43.9% of the vote in an election held on 5 March 1933, even with Nazi party thugs having terrorized other parties’ candidates. Even so, the Nazis – short of a majority – had to form a coalition. It had a slim majority in the Reichstag (parliament). By at once disarming their foes, the Nazis stifled any resistance. By 1938, Nazi policy successes – e.g., the seizure of Austria and a revived economy – made the Nazis truly popular.

        The Nazis murdered some 13,000,000 of whom some 6,000,000 were Jews (of whom 1,500,000 were children) and 750,000 Gypsies (Roma).

        The Nazis revised many laws and enacted many new ones, to carry-out their programs. The 1928 Weapons law (Waffengesetz) was not revised until 18 March 1938. By then, most – whom they Nazis hated – had been disarmed. Those, who backed the Nazis were, of course, not affected by “gun control”.

      Those remarks must be facieses.

  • Chuck Matson January 31, 2020, 5:21 am

    It’s just a little bit scary how many young people have been duped into embracing socialism.

    • joefoam January 31, 2020, 7:23 am

      They are simply ignorant. Their indoctrinators will not expose them to the horrors of socialism which cost 100+ million deaths in the last centuty.
