2nd Amendment gun nuts think someday they will be called on to put down tyranny. The problem is...

the average gun nut is more likely to become an accessory to tyranny than any other person, especially if they are the type of person who would follow someone like Trump and support democracy killing ideas such as "the big lie".

On January 6, 2021 we had a whole lot 2nd Amendment gun humpers show us just how willing they would be to follow the whim of one man so that he could remain in power contrary to our Constitution.

These people wouldn't know actual tyranny if it hit them in the face. To them "tyranny" is being told to wear a mask at the grocery store during a pandemic.



Supposing the Pukes get their way with arming teachers...

What kind of personal trauma is any "armed" teacher who fails to stop a shooter going to suffer?

Think of the potential guilt that will be carried by any teacher who fails for some reason to stop the threat.

Pukes usually don't like to put money toward education, so I'm pretty any therapy or counselling will be up to the individual.

Here's your gun, Teacher...

You'll need it to fend off all the sick people we're going to allow to buy guns.

I'll never be able to look at a 10 gallon hat the same ever again

I'm afraid after this week I will always associate them with incompetence.

I always think of that old definition of insanity quote when we have mass shootings

The one that says:

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Of course in the case of mass shootings the thing being done over and over is NOTHING.

Question for any Constitutional scholars out there

Many 2nd Amendment nuts have convinced themselves that the 2nd amendment is all about the general populous being ready to take over their own government if it gets tyrannical.

Why doesn't Article I, Section 8, Clause 15: put an end to this thinking since it states as powers of Congress:


"To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress." ?


Seems the Congress has constitutional power over the militia?

Republican pattern when you try to discuss gun safety measures with them

1) Claim falsely that Dems only want total confiscation

2) Claim every proposed measure takes away their rights

3) Claim again that Dems only want total confiscation

4) Threaten that if Dems want to confiscate all the guns, go ahead and try it.


Meanwhile the next mass shooter is easily getting a gun.

Let's do the math

The Texas school shooter purchased his guns on May 18th.
Six days later he used one of those guns to attack and kill on May 24th.
The students that were shot that day only had 2 or 3 days left before school would have been out for the summer.

6 days between gun purchase and shootings + 3 days until the school would have been empty = 9 days


Conclusion: in this case a waiting period for gun purchase of only 10 days would have saved the lives of those children.

One simple thing that would have definitely, without question prevented the school shooting in Texas

That something would have been a simple waiting period!

The shooter literally bought the guns mere days before the shootings.

The kids were 2 days away from being on summer break. Even a short waiting period of a week would have prevented those kids from being shot in that school.

Tell it to the gun humpers that always claim nothing could have prevented it.

What if republicans put as much effort into solving real problems as they do fake ones?

We could have a great country. Instead of wasting time on things like CRT we could be working on real problems like school shootings.
