America’s Gun-Haters Are Only Biding Their Time

Opinion

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Paradigm Shift

We all know what they want, the gun-grabbers that is. They tell us, just not in so many words. Sometimes you have to dig a little deeper beneath the surface – but the truth is always in there somewhere, buried for us to unearth. Like many things in life, you just have to find it, and in this case, your greatest tool is logic. It’s also the worst enemy of the freedom haters, and they’re just too dumb to know it.

To my point, I’ll start (and end) with Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT). At 6:42 PM on March,16th 2019, just a few days ago, Murphy sent this target-rich tweet:

Nobody needs an AR-15 to hunt.

Nobody needs a semi-automatic rifle to defend their home.

But mass shooters NEED these weapons in order to murder as many people as efficiently as possible. And so nobody will miss them when they are illegal – except for the killers.

Stop laughing! While the tweet (can you believe we live in an age where the word “tweet” is even a word, let alone a form of mass communication? I digress) is hilarious on its surface, the most essential part of it isn’t noticeable unless we dig. So, let’s dig.

  • First, Chris Murphy is a lying politician, and no politician gets to tell me what I need. I don’t care if it’s healthcare, a food type or a choice of firearm. Oh, and while we’re digging, it can't be overlooked that the Second Amendment ain’t about hunting.
  • Second, I do in fact, need an AR-15 to defend my home. That’s why I own several of them. It’s my choice to decide what gun or guns work best for my home defense, not his, and I choose to need several AR-15’s.
  • Third, and this is where we get really close to unearthing the truth – mass shooters do NOT “NEED these weapons in order to murder as many people as efficiently as possible,” as the woefully ignorant Connecticut Senator states.

In his zeal to demonize the “weapon of war,” or as they also refer to it, the “weapon of choice” for mass murderers, Murphy forgot to mention that the Virginia Tech killer, as just one of many examples, used a plain old 9mm Glock 19 and a .22 caliber Walther P-22, (both handguns), to murder 32 human beings. Oh, and he did it “efficiently.” Of course, Murphy must know that handguns are used in the vast majority of “mass murders” and most other regular, run of the mill, Socialist-controlled, inner-city daily gang killings and robberies. He must know that right or can he be that dumb?

Assuming he does know that, then logic would dictate that Murphy is okay with a mass killer using a couple of plain old handguns “to murder as many people as efficiently as possible.” I mean, that is the logical conclusion of his tweet. But we can dig deeper. We can also conclude, because he tells us in no uncertain terms, that he wants to ban the AR-15. “Nobody will miss them when they are illegal – except the killers.” Again, Murphy makes it clear he is only targeting the AR-15. This seemingly confirms that I can safely assume that Murphy is just fine with mass murders as long as they are carried out by killers using Glock 19 and Walther P-22 handguns.

By doing so, he accomplishes, temporarily, the appearance of coming across as one of those, “Nobody wants to take away your guns” Socialists (except the AR is, in fact, a gun, but I digress, again). He has expertly provided himself some degree of plausible deniability by making it appear that it’s only the terrible black AR-15 that we need to ban. Like all gun-grabbers, (because of their allies in the mainstream media) Murphy gets away with this by the media’s repeated (calculated) failure to ask him why he is okay with anything other than an AR-15 being used “in order to murder as many people as efficiently as possible.

Of course, the Senator from (ironically) The Constitution State is merely leaving his hatred of other guns off the table for the time being. Unfortunately, he gets away with it because of a certain, and frankly, an astonishing degree of stupidity amongst the masses who fall for his deception. Murphy believes he can project his hatred of your gun rights onto the demonized AR-15 as it is currently politically expedient to do so on the heels of another mass killing, this time in New Zealand. By so doing he is hoping you won’t take notice of his hatred for all guns until the time is right.

In reality, Murphy and the rest of America’s gun-haters are only biding their time, waiting with the stealth of an apex predator before going for the kill. That pounce for the kill is the paradigm shift referred to in the title of this piece. It will occur when the Socialists (formerly known as Democrats) eventually get around to acting on the narrative they are slowly creating, with help from the media, that all semi-automatics are just as evil as an AR-15 and so too, are also worthy of a ban.

(The shift, will become more pronounced following New Zealand's expected upcoming announcement that it is banning all semi-automatics. This will be used as a tool for American lefties to begin the shift in earnest as they beg for the same outcome here while holding up New Zealand as a “common sense” approach to “gun violence” in The United States. No Socialist running for president will oppose this viewpoint).

Because Murphy lacks any convictions, it’s the only logical conclusion that can be drawn from his tweet – unless he is okay with semi-automatic handguns being used by mass killers “in order to murder as many people as efficiently as possible.”

These folks make it too easy.

Checkmate.

Man has exactly four needs. Air, water, food and shelter. Everything else is a want, not a need.
DO NOT engage the leftists on “need.” It is a false premise, reject it outright. Otherwise you’re letting them set the template for the debate.

A Constitutional Right does not require expounding a need to anyone, especially a public servant, prior to the exercise thereof.

The gentleman from Connecticut is wrong about nobody will miss them except for the killers in that the killers won’t miss them at all as they will still have them because they care less about the law.

The law abiding, who are his intended party to punish, will miss them (so he is wrong again).

I have come to the conclusion, politicians are like meteorologist, they can be consistently wrong and still get a raise!

Does anyone know “Murphy’s Fundamental Laws”? There are at least 18 of them and they fit is idiot to a tee. I am not going to try to copy all of them but here is a few: 1. If anything can go wrong, it will 2. Enough research will support your conclusions. 3. It is the fundamental law of nature that nothing ever quite works out. 4. You can fool some of the people all the time and all the people some of the time and that is sufficient. The name Murphy must be a bad disease and not good… Read more »

I think you all missed the point – Mass killers dont care about gun laws- they will get an ILLEGAL AR15 on the street- BUT there will be no armed citizen to stop the mass killer- so more people will get killed I submit that the man who planned to kill a mass of people at the restaurants on the lakefront in Oklahoma City a few month ago would have succeeded had there not been two armed citizens in the area who handled the situation and sent his case to the highest court from which there is no appeal.

On the other hand, they WERE (per General Thomas W Gage, CinC of British Forces in North America) just “a bunch of stupid farmers with their SQUIRRELGUNS, upon whom he had heaped much scorn and derision prior to his fourth attempt to disarm the Colonials around the Boston area, where he was based. After learning, first hand and painfully, about “those stupid farmers with their squirrelguns”, (as he had previously informed his superior, King George Three) and how skilled, “well regulated”, and determined they were in defending their homes, he later reported back to his superior “there are men among… Read more »

We unfortunately have an “Attorney General” in Maryland named Brian Frosh who is ANTI-American, ANTI-Second Amendment, meaning the Constitution is only relevant when HE can use it to his advantage. He apparently does not believe the Constitution does not mean what it says. This DemocRAT communist/islamist/nwo member has stated he wants to TAKE ALL THE GUNS from We the People.

The senator would feel the need for an Ar 15 if he was dropped in a field full of feral hogs while armed with a single shot or bolt action rifle.

He would not need to be armed. He would be embraced by the hogs as a fellow pig. The same way as the pigs in D.C. do for each other.

Before one you regular Fudds comments about not caring if AR-15s go away, I remember recently seeing in another article that they are now starting to try to re-label bolt-action deer hunting rifles as “sniper rifles”. You Fudds are next on the chopping block! Keep that in mind the next time you say you don’t care if AR’s go away! Once they think they have killed off the threat of AR’s and “high capacity” semi-auto handguns, YOU will be labeled a “potential sniper” and they will come after your bolt-action! “We aren’t coming to take away your guns”, as long… Read more »

This asshole and Dicky “Da-Nang” Blumenthal are unfortunately (and I am truly ashamed to say) my two US Senators. They, along with the 5 House reps from Kommiecticut, hate firearms and the private ownership of them so much, that if they were being held prisoner by ISIS facing beheading and about to be rescued by armed American Patriot civilians, would probably decide to stay with their captors and wait for the military. BTW….how did that work out in Benghazi? Not too good. It is not for ANYONE, let alone a slimy politician, to determine the “needs” of another person. I… Read more »

No, there are no provisions for recall elections in Kommiecticut. They simply need to be captured and hung. Perhaps then, their “replacements” would think twice about violating their Oath of Office and the US Constitution.

In all cases, when a Dictator takes over, they take out the constituency that rose them to power. The reason is because they are the biggest threat to their power.

Think Hitler-“Night of Long Knives.” Butcher of Baghdad (Saddam Hussein)-Actually, called out names of people in his inner circle during an event and had them killed immediately. It happened with Stalin, Mao, and others throughout history…look it up, great historical lesson.
