Brady McDonald’s Analogy More Evidence of Desperate Gun-Grabber Lies

Brady McDonald’s Analogy More Evidence of Desperate Gun-Grabber Lies

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Let’s be clear, gun stores are NOT McDonald’s,” the Brady Campaign asserts in a transparently ridiculous attempt to deceive its low information Facebook followers. “You shouldn’t be able to buy an AR-15 like you do a burger and fries.”

Let’s be clear: You can’t. Just as first-time gun owners are finding out they can’t just “buy a gun online” and they’re not easier to get than “books” and “vegetables,” all state and federal infringements that the gun-grabbers have insisted on still apply.

The Bradys know that. They’re just counting on those uninformed enough to believe them staying ignorant and falling for increasingly desperate gun-grabber lies. That becomes even more apparent reading the “press release” their Facebook post links to that elaborates on what they’re whining about this time.

“Brady condemns new ATF guidance for gun stores, ‘unsafe and indulgent,’” the headline scolds. “The Administration has used broad interpretations of the federal Gun Control Act to suggest that FFLs conduct business at a drive-by or walk-up window as if they were a McDonalds, or at a temporary table or booth, as if they were a lemonade stand, removing the protective influence that responsible gun dealers can have on stopping the proliferation of crime guns and on educating gun owners about the risks of guns and how to mitigate them.”

You’d think an organization claiming to be about “safety” would approve of measures encouraging “social distancing” to protect customer and employee lives, but as we’ve seen time and again from the contempt gun-grabbers display, it’s clear gun owner safety is not a priority. That’s hardly a surprise to those who are on to their ways, as writer L. Neil Smith so brutally (and correctly) observed in his classic 2000 essay, “Murder by Gun Control”:

“Make no mistake: you victim disarmament types are sick, sick people, in the words of T.D. Melrose, who’d rather see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose than see her with a gun in her hand.”

That’s obvious from the McDonalds hysteria over what turns out to be a fairly tepid statement by ATF in its Friday letter to FFLs:

“Specifically, Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) have requested guidance regarding whether they may verify customer identity and permit the completion of paperwork, including for purposes of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System; accept payment; and deliver firearms or ammunition to customers (collectively, ‘the requested activities’) in the following settings: (1) a drive-up or walk-up window or doorway on the FFL’s property; (2) a temporary table or booth located in a parking lot on the FFL’s property…”

“[P]rovided, the activity … would not violate any State law or published ordinance applicable at the place of sale, delivery, or other disposition…,” the letter concedes, meaning don’t hold your breath if you think the feds are going to frog march a governor into a waiting van the same way they would if he were violating politically preferred civil rights.

“Guidance documents, like this industry letter, are not binding and lack the force and effect of law,” the letter acknowledges. It’s the same with the revised Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency “guidance” acknowledging “Workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges”:

“This list is advisory in nature. It is not, nor should it be considered, a federal directive or standard.”

So while ATF’s letter is “welcome” (as a “legal” self-defense measure as long as infringements are in place), it’s no “supreme Law of the Land” reset, and you can bet if a political sea change happens in November, they’ll reverse themselves quicker than you can say “bump stock.”

That’s just another reason why letting Democrats gain a majority in November will spell “Put up or shut up” time for gun owners who are quick to say “Molon Labe!” while simultaneously decrying the uselessness of voting. As maddening as that process is, one needs only return to the Brady Facebook post and read some of the comments by their useful idiot following to remove all doubt as to how their votes will be driven by ignorance and bias.

“I just bought a fried chicken dinner at a drive through,” one representative cud-chewer bleats. “Buying a gun should be a lot harder than buying lunch.”

“TWO HAPPY MEALS AND A 357 [sic] MAGNUM PLEASE!” bellows another ignoramus who sounds a few fries short of those meals.

The Brady’s job is done here. You can find plenty more idiotic assertions like these. Just realize: Like all cult members, the self-deluded are not inclined to have open minds and be approachable with anything as mundane as the truth. There is no point in trying to debate them.

And they vote.

Those who trade in deception and who have as their goal your disarmament are counting on that.

Make no mistake. You should be able to buy ARs or any gun just like a burger and fries….”would you like ammo with that AR?”…..as we once did when America was free. Second Amendment says so…”…shall not be infringed.”

I hope that some of the (perhaps former) anti’s who went through the legal process to purchase a firearm are reading some of those Bloomberg (supported) posts.

Those remarks will prove to these “newbies” the falsehood of how easy it is to purchase a firearm & the lies that are being perpetuated.

Buying a gun as easily as a Big Mac used to be the norm; and what was wrong with that? All the laws since then haven’t really stopped the nuts from mass violence!!!

I’m not so sure putting the GOP in charge will get you what you want. Remember the last time they had both houses of Congress and the WH, all the great pro-gun laws they passed?

Brady, et al, are then atypical LIARS of the Communist Left (read: Communist Democrap Party) in America! They are supporters of the Communist Democrap Party whose plan is to destroy the Constitutional Republic in America and replace it with a Centrally Controlled Communist Police State Government with them in charge. If the Communist Democraps EVER win nationally, there will NEVER be another free election held in America. If anyone who reads this wants to see what a society based on the Communist Democrap model looks like just read “1984”!

Yup, the Brady organization is absolutely right in it’s assessment. It should be easier to buy guns as Mac’s kills far more with their food than guns.
Besides their missing the point, guns never have and never will kill.
Period.

The act of purchase of weapons has not changed, only the format. the gun control crowd, as noted in the article, depends on the ignorance of the people who support them.

They’d be A-Okay with drive up to the Border and be handed a voter card as well as a provisional citizenship, that would eventually be citizenship. Abortions have there benefit most are done by Liberals, but the uninformed do not realize that abortion is being used as a form of genocide against minorities.

Mr McDonald’s thinking is indicative of that of a communist dictatorship instead of a Democratic Republic. He is obviously devoid of the principles from which America was founded upon. Sadly, he is joined by millions of others equally ignorant.

Let’s be clear, you SHOULD be able to buy any gun as easily as you can buy a hammer, crow bar, knife, chainsaw OR a burger and fries. We already have laws on the books against murder, rape, robbery, assault and choking. Trying to make the inanimate object the scapegoat has always been the fools errand and there appears to be no shortage of fools vying for the coveted title of king.

@Vanns, And we should be able to buy any gun more easily and quickly, as a hammer or burger and fries, during times of emergency.
I hope that the line of people outside of Martin B. Retting’s gun store remember what the “gun control” laws (that they supported) did to them, during their hour of need.

what a bunch of scare mongering liars. their website lists a 12 step comprehensive plan to stop gun violence, although it does not list anything to restrict the behavior of criminals, who commit the vast majority of gun violence in America, just people who follow the law. I thought 12 step programs were to help people. how does any of this help us? if their home was being invaded or wife and daughter being raped, would they want to wait for the police to come or have a firearm for protection? also, I do not let people get away with… Read more »

Well, you do know what happened to Mark Kelly when he told everybody he was going to buy an “assault weapon” to show how easy it was? Three tries, three whiffs.

Dozap, I am a former Northerner, and still occasionally get reminded that I am a Yankee. However, if you go to the UK, even Southerners get called Yankees. I believe fully in our RKBA as enumerated in our Bill of Rights and in that it is a Natural Right not granted to us by our government, but is to be protected as the former said document attests. The 2A is unconditional; all laws infringing on that right are unconstitutional, as stated in Marbury, that a law repugnant to the Constitution is void.

@Heed – Southerners, even Texans can be a bit ignorant about the term as well. My cousin visiting from Denmark was called Yankee by an ignorant boy here.

Thought Yank the European term for Americans. Adding “ee” to end totally changes meaning of the word.

The escalating conflict, we are now in, is among citizens not separated by territorial boundaries. Yankee, is no longer an applicable term.

The LEFT, and Commies, while applicable terms, do not include all that are attacking our liberty. Our governing public servants, serve other masters not the public of private citizens.
