    And what about any reasonably available training for the guy who purchases a car for any reason and knows nothing about cars and has little interest in learning even simple safety?

    More people are killed in America due to automotive accidents than gunshot wounds, after all.

    Now if you’re trying to say “That guy won’t seek such training on his own, so we have to make him,” consider the fact that the “Everytown for Gun Safety” folks don’t have any problem trying to shut down shooting ranges — the very places where that training would take place — using noise ordinances, environmental regulations and such (they’ve only been doing just that since the 1980s).

    If Bloomberg truly cared about gun safety training, he would be spending his billions on building new shooting ranges, instead of lobbying and agitating to wipe out the Second Amendment a little bit at a time.

  5. nmpolitics.net – Re: Gun-safety group was top spender among Roundhouse lobbyists in 2016

    “The biggest spender among lobbyists in New Mexico last year was not employed by an oil company or a tobacco company or a mining company. Instead, it was a New York-based advocacy group for gun safety that spent $219,500.

    “The reports, filed this week with the Secretary of State’s Office, show that Pedro Morillas, regional director for Everytown for Gun Safety,”

    If “Everytown for Gun Safety” was truly about promoting firearms safety, they would offer training where people could learn how to handle, use, carry and store firearms in a safe manner.

    Instead, that sort of training is offered by the outfit that “Everytown for Gun Safety” complains about on a regular basis as The Scourge Of America — the National Rifle Association of America.

    While “Everytown for Gun Safety” could be offering firearms training, all they do instead is lobby governmental bodies in the name of restricting the inherent individual, civil, Constitutional right of Americans to own and carry weapons. The Constitution doesn’t give anyone that right — the right is a pre-existing one, accorded to everyone at birth as a matter of being born as a sapient (self-aware) entity.

    “Libertarians are isolationists”

    This sort of slander and libel has been aimed at the LP since the LP was founded in December, 1971.

    Isolationism is the Great Wall of China, Hadrian’s Wall across Britain, Imperial China between 1757 and 1840, and the Japanese Shogunate between 1635 and 1853.

    Libertarians aren’t isolationists, but *non-interventionists* (there’s a difference — look it up, you can’t expect me to do your work for you), as in we don’t want America to run the lives of the 7,181,000,000 non-Americans around the world.

    Comments like these make me ashamed to be part Polish, and are a data point in support of the Polish jokes in the 15 or so volumes of the Truly Tasteless Jokes series.

    The answer to all three questions is that if you don’t like the responses you get from the charter school or private school in question, you’re free to pull your kid(s) out and enroll them with a competitor.

    So your answer is to keep taking from others and throwing their money and their kids into your preferred system, even if they object to that?

    Barbara Alvarez —

    Because all rich people do with their money is put it all in one big pile to roll around in, and never spend any of it, correct?

    So the utility companies provide them with water, electricity, gas, etc., gratis just because, correct?

    Those rich people never have to pay for food, gasoline for their cars, cell phone service, or internet service, because it’s all just given to them at no charge?

    “The rich don’t, as a rule, spend their money, thus allowing it to move down to lower economic groups. Instead, they invest it. Where it stays.”

    Last time I checked, it’s their money, not mine, not yours. Do Bill Gates or Warren Buffett send you letters or emails telling you demanding that you spend your money in ways that they approve of?

    I’m one of the “working poor” as well, and I haven’t yet received any such letter from any rich guy.

    As for the phrase “working poor,” poverty in the Third World is when flies are all over your kids on a regular basis due to lack of sanitation. Poverty in America, by contrast, is when you get that letter from the cable company with “FINAL NOTICE” across the top of the page in big red letters.

    IF this hypothetical 1/3 of the federal workforce actually does follow through on this, that will make Trump one of the better presidents in American history.

    The word “IF” is capitalized because there also have been plenty of collectivist, “liberal,” hoplophobic celebrities saying that they would leave the country if Trump was elected. Well, Trump won the election (or out-cheated Hillzabeast), and those celebrities seem to be staying put.

    I don’t, either. But as I said above, that’s a BIG “IF” — a bunch of egomaniacal clickbait types of the “left” variety have said that they’ll ship out, as well, which doesn’t seem to be happening.

    Or maybe they’re all hoping against hope that Trump will go on TV, say “OK, you got me,” and hand the presidency over to Hillary tomorrow afternoon.

    That, and the responses I get from the Hillzabeast worshippers are just golden.

    “You sure as hell didn’t object to such bills being passed specifically to allow the Utah war, by Democrats wherel iterally thousands of people who imprisoned without trial for years, and een killed, on accusation of a rebellion that never existed to begin with, . Or when federal level regulations, brought by Democrats allowed various ethnic minorities, the handicapped, ect to be forcibly sterilzied and incarcerated without trial, simply to appease eugenics advocates. Again, brought forth by Democrats. Or when the Democrats created the various war powers acts, which again, allow imprisonment of US citizens without trial. Brought forth by Democrats.”

    This Saturday, I will not be attending the protest march on Washington, although I live only a few minutes away from that location.

    This march suggests that Donald J. Trump‘s inappropriateness is somehow worse than the government abuses under Barack Obama and George W. Bush. I won’t support that kind of value reversal. I will not engage in the fantasy that idiotic locker room humor is worse than bombing civilians, or hypocritically refusing to pardon people marijuana use after admitting to marijuana use. I will not pretend that Trump’s election antics are worse than warrantless wiretapping, or the Patriot Act, or the Wall Street bailout.

    If and when Trump bombs his first wedding or hospital, I will happily march in protest. If and when he refuses to scale back or end the drug war, I will march in protest. If and when he supports a Wall Street bailout, or a program as diseased as Common Core, I’ll gladly march. If he wastes money on a wall, I will march. If he refuses to pardon Snowden or dismantle the Patriot Act, I will march. If he creates a Muslim Watch List, I will march.

    But this protest is not about that. It is about people acting as if every kind of abuse is fine, except for social rudeness. These are the same people who refused to protest war, the war on drugs, the Patriot Act, or warrantless surveillance under Obama. They tacitly approved all of those things, and now are further extending that tacit approval in this march. They are saying that Trump’s rude humor is worse than all of that. After all, they didn’t life a finger to oppose those inexcusable actions, but they came in from all over the country to oppose Trump’s rudeness.

    For a political movement to be taken seriously, it must consider more important issues as . . . more important. Bill Clinton’s continuation of the War on Drugs and signing of the Defense of Marriage act was far worse than sexual infidelity. The fact that the media and public focused on the latter just made them look silly. This march is no different.

    I will not support a political ideology that suggests a whiff of sexism or racism is worse than the blatant abuses of government power over the last years. Because when you march against the former, but excuse the latter, that’s exactly what you are saying.

    I am keenly aware of the political and personal advantages in attending the march. But logic, sanity, and conscience will not permit me to support the fantasy that impolite behavior matters more than blatant government abuse.

    Respectfully,

    The very phrase “gun violence” is designed to make people think of firearms as only good for criminal activity.

    The statutory provisions that prohibit civilian possession of these (and the bigger M134 it was derived from) — the National Firearms Act of 1934, the Hughes Amendment of 1986, etc., — are completely contrary to the explicit written sentiments of the Founders who drafted the Second Amendment.

    So, Dirk, you really want to take away all of the firearms in the United States owned by private-sector civilians?

    Let’s take a look at what that would entail —

    CSM Paul Howe (the author of that article) was an assaulter with “Delta Force” during the “Blackhawk Down” incident in Somalia back in 1993. When he wasn’t blowing in doors with explosive charges and clearing rooms, he was either training to do it or training others to do it as his full-time occupation.

    Now let’s take a look at the current stats on the United States —

    1. America has 12,000 miles of basically unenforceable borders and coastlines. Law enforcement only stops about five percent of the drugs being smuggled into the country. And read your headlines for the GOP caterwauling about illegal immigrants — “they’re stealing our jobs! they’re all rapists and murderers!” Yet supposedly there’s 11 million of them already inside the country.

      When the powers that be outlaw a commodity that’s in demand, whether it’s unsanctioned drugs or unsanctioned labor, someone will find a way to make money in satisfying that demand. Outlawing guns will simply allow organized crime, whether it’s the Mafia that was supposedly wiped out, the biker gangs or the street gangs, to get further into the weapons market.

    2. America has the world’s largest amount of firearms already in the civilian sector. F-Troop estimates that number to be around 300-320 million. Other estimates push the number as much as twice or three times the official estimate.
    3. America has the world’s largest supply of precision machine tools. I read a comment posted to an article by a machinist that said it wouldn’t matter if guns were illegal — all he needed was time and metal, and he could make any weapon he wanted.
    4. 60-70 percent of American military and law enforcement personnel are supportive of the Second Amendment, and either libertarian or conservative leaning. These are the people you will insist conduct for you the confiscation raids that CSM Howe talked about in the article linked to above. Because we both know that you don’t have what it takes, right?
    5. In the states where restrictive laws have been implemented, compliance is spotty at best. Connecticut insisted that “assault weapon” owners register them after the Sandy Hook massacre — only five percent or so actually did, and state government there gave up insisting that everyone register them after it turned out that 68% of Connecticut’s cops would be among those required to register.
    6. Most of America’s food production areas (“Flyover Country” is what Frau Reichsecretary Hillary’s friends call it) is decidely pro-gun. Are you prepared and willing to raise your own vegetables, grain, beef, fish, pork, chickens?
