USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Another month closer to the presidential election, and the media circus continues.
If we can set aside the media bias, the ever-increasing proof of lies and criminal activity that Hillary Clinton, the State Department, and the Clinton Foundation has been engaged in (and which has been ignored by the DOJ), and the rest of the racial and political issues that continue to surface every day for a minute, and enjoy this jewel.
A few days ago, Bill Weld (former Republican governor of Massachusetts and now Gary Johnson's running mate on the Libertarian ticket) summarized the anti-gun sentiment about as well as any of his peers could have:
“The five-shot rifle, that’s a standard military rifle; the problem is if you attach a clip to it so it can fire more shells and if you remove the pin so that it becomes an automatic weapon, and those are independent criminal offenses,” Weld said. “That is when they become, essentially, a weapon of mass destruction. The problem with handguns probably is even worse than the problem of the AR15.”
WTF?!?! Once again, the anti-gun “experts” publicly show the world a level of ignorance about a topic they want to pass laws against that is downright embarrassing.
We're not talking about Joe Blow on the street- these are career politicians who are looking to run the country! Weld was a U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts, then headed the Justice Department’s criminal division under the Reagan administration, and later served two terms as governor in Massachusetts! Now he's running for Vice President of the United States.
How is it that these “experts” can come to a conclusion about a topic they know nothing about, and by nothing I mean not enough to put together a sentence, and feel they must force it down the throats of their citizens?
Wouldn't the first thing you do if you wanted to speak about a topic, especially one you know people have such strong feelings about, be to educate yourself as much as possible so you don't sound like a complete moron when you open your mouth?
Not for democrats who pander to people's emotions. The facts don't matter. Common sense doesn't matter. They talk to hear themselves talk and make everyone feel like they're doing something to help the world.
They don't need facts to back up their positions. They don't need tools, or even guns to help the world because in fact they don't ever accomplish anything. They just talk.
It is up to others to do the hard work. To fight the battles that actually make a difference in the world.
And once they do, these politicians sit back and take the credit while criticizing the manner in which the job was done.
So how is anyone supposed to take anything else Weld says seriously after showing such ignorance? You can't. Ignorance is easily written off and he will not be taken seriously. That's fine.
Back to Hillary though, and the lies upon lies she's told to the American people. The lies she's told Congress. The lies she's told to the families of fallen soldiers, and all in pursuit of money and power. That, unlike the moronic comments by Weld cannot be ignored. Those are not based on ignorance, but on downright selfishness and a lack of concern for the welfare of others.
I'm confident the FBI investigations into the Clinton Foundation will turn up a mountain of evidence of criminal activity like we've never seen before in our history.
The question is what will happen when it does? Will the DOJ ignore it? Will the Obama administration wipe the slate clean, or will justice finally prevail?
A chief aim of the Constitution as drafted by the Constitutional Convention was to create a government with enough power to act on a national level, but without so much power that fundamental rights would be at risk. It is quite obvious that limit has been overstepped, and electing Hillary would essentially re-create the same greedy, selfish, tyrannical government that the King of England and Parliament had back in the 18th century. Then she could begin dismantling the Constitution piece by piece.
I hope the FBI does their job, and that the DOJ does theirs. I hope that the evidence that was purposely deleted from the private email server makes its way to the American people, and that the establishment and its corrupt politics are eliminated. I still have hope that all is not lost in our federal government, but I have no confidence.
AR15.Com originated in 1996 as a mailing list for firearm enthusiasts. As the years passed and interest grew, a website came into existence to present those same enthusiasts with a means to collect, share, and explore information. Shortly afterwards, a bulletin board was added to create a more interactive experience for the growing list of users. The site was still in it’s infancy, but was growing in popularity.
