Somewhere between screaming for gun control and then being called out for actually wanting gun confiscation, the anti-gunners decided to change the phrase “gun control” to “gun safety.” I wonder why they would do that. I mean, whether you call it 2G, 4G, or 9G, you’re still screwing me with the same slow ass Internet speeds, the same way anti-gunners are trying to force feed us the “gun safety” placebo.
All trained gun users learn that there are four rules of gun safety that will prevent any and all unintentional death, injury, or damage caused by improper possession, storage, or handling of firearms. They are:
One: Treat all guns as if they are always loaded.
Two: Never let point the muzzle at anything you are not willing to destroy.
Three: Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target.
And finally, four: Know your target, and know what’s beyond it.
So, now that we’ve gone through the four Founding Fathers of gun safety, someone please tell me how a universal background check, assault weapons ban, or high capacity magazine ban has anything to do with the rules of gun safety?
Unless they changed the gun safety rules, which are pretty much the Bible of the gun world – so I’m pretty sure they’re still the same – I don’t see how any of the proposed measures by anti-gunners will aid in the safety of gun use.
Think about it, what changed? When they were calling it gun control, they wanted universal background checks, an assault weapons ban, high capacity magazine ban, round limitations, and every other useless measure that would do nothing to stop criminals. Now they’re calling it gun safety like that somehow changed their intent, but nothing has changed. They still want the same things, and they’re still going to get the same ineffective results.
Do they think we’re so unintelligent that when their gun control measures were shot down that they could just try to pass the same BS under a different name and no one would notice? Their idea of gun safety is: “Here, give us all the guns and we will keep you safe because you can’t be trusted with an AR or a gun that has more than two rounds.” We already said no to these options. Try something else.
Talking to anti-gunners is like talking to a 12-year-old. They don’t expect any one to look below the surface of their proposed measures and see what they truly are, but we are. And we aren’t falling for it. For them to think that all they have to do is change the name of the same nonsense laws simply means they don’t respect us, the same way they don’t respect our Second Amendment right.
