As I have long predicted, rightists do not really support firearm ownership as a matter of principle, but only support firearm ownership when the owners are "white":


The episode began when gun enthusiasts started getting together on Sundays for target practice at the wooded property of 64-year-old Byron Bell.

As the gatherings grew bigger, along with the caliber of weapons and the number of rounds discharged, they drew the ire of neighbors even in this sparsely populated and gun-friendly area.

It was after county officials took action, deeming the site an unlawful firing range and filing an injunction to stop it from operating in September, that events took several unexpected turns.
Things escalated last week when sheriff’s deputies raided the property, seizing what Bell said were about a dozen firearms.
 Bell, who moved into his home in 2019 and bought it this year, said he believes he and his friends were unfairly singled out.

“Everybody shoots around here. So why you going to have me stop shooting?” Bell said.

Why do you think? Hint in bold below:

Bell began hosting shooting days on his land in 2021. The events were organized by Mark “Choppa” Manley, a social media influencer and former D.C. security guard who promoted the site as home to the “Choppa Community” — an incubator of firearms education and ownership for African Americans.

The real question is why, when the sheriff's deputies raided the property, firepower was not used to protect the property by the same people who had been training with them? Why even train if you are not going to use the firearms when it really matters?

It is encouraging to know that the good guys at least 1) have firearms and; 2) are willing to use them to protect refugees:

Their shooting skills need a lot of work, though.....

They need to train with rifles, not handguns.

Why leftists should not be anti-firearm:

“Did she literally just tweet out the video of her kicking me?” Pecora wrote on Twitter along with Greene’s video. Pecora shared a different angle on her own feed.

“I’m so sorry but I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect members of Congress to not kick an 18 year old citizen,” Pecora added.

Voters of Tomorrow wrote in a statement to reporters that Greene “physically and verbally attacked members of our team,” and that “in addition to yelling at our Executive Director, a Mexican immigrant, to ‘go to another country,’ she physically assaulted another young staffer.”

Santiago Mayer, executive director of the group, wrote on Twitter that Voters of Tomorrow is consulting with their legal team and “keeping our options open.”

Greene attacked Meyer on Twitter, calling him a “paid political activist” and telling him to “go back” to Mexico if he didn’t like the gun laws in the United States.

The following woke comment explains:

The teenager was in that place first, maybe she should have exercised her stand your ground right that the GOP is so fond of, and we wouldn't have to worry about Madge anymore.

Every US leftist should own one of these:

New assault rifle being sold to civilians is twice as powerful as the AR-15 and capable of shooting through bulletproof vests, report says
SIG Sauer's MCX-SPEAR is the civilian equivalent of the US Army's NGSW-R (Next Generation Squad Weapon-Rifle), specifically created to tear through body armor, The Daily Beast reported.

"It'll shoot through almost all of the bulletproof vests worn by law enforcement in the county right now," Ryan Busse, a former firearms company executive now a senior policy analyst with the Giffords Law Center, told the outlet.

The gun fires bullets with twice the kinetic energy of those from an AR-15 has a longer range, and has a noise suppressor that could make a gunman harder to locate, the outlet reported.

because every US rightist will soon own one of these, and if they have more firepower than we do, they will win.

This is what we need! Selective confiscation of firearms from rightist ownership only! Our enemies complain:

he left-wing interior minister of the German state of Thuringia, Georg Maier, wants to withdraw gun licenses from Alternative for Germany members, which would effectively result in a mass weapon confiscation.
While the interior minister says that they will target “right-wing extremists,” this list also apparently includes law-abiding members of the AfD who have never been convicted of any crime or shown any sign of participating in terror activity. The rule would, for example, target AfD members who legally own weapons as hunters or marksmen, according to German news outlet T-Online. The letter says that “appropriate revocation procedures should be initiated against these in principle.”
AfD Thuringia is suing against this classification in the report as being for the protection of the constitution. AfD state spokesman Stefan Möller criticized the actions of the interior minister. He accused him of using an adapted weapons law in Germany “as a substitute criminal law against law-abiding hunters and marksmen in the AfD.”

Certainly (and as I have always argued), anyone who has ever used a firearm to hunt have proven that they do not deserve to own firearms. (It is of course no coincidence that hunters are disproportionately rightists.)

More encouraging signs:

Body armor manufacturers are seeing a spike in sales amid recent incidents of gun violence in the US, NPR reported. Increasingly, they're seeing purchases from leftists and progressives of color who "want to have that protection," a gun rights advocate said.

"It's becoming popular among leftist progressive people of color," P.B Gomez the founder of the Latino Rifle Association told NPR, adding that they "want to protect themselves at protests when they're in situations where they might be confronted by far-right agitators."

Good! (Next, stop associating leftism with progressivism.)

In the wake of racially motivated attacks like the Buffalo, New York, supermarket shooting, which targeted a predominantly Black community, groups like the Latino Rifle Association have argued that body armor is "valid protection from hate crimes."

"If you are POC or LGBTQ+, highlight the fact that body armor is valid protection from hate crimes, you don't appreciate New York's attempt to make you vulnerable," the Latino Rifle Association tweeted last month.

In reality, however, body armour is not intended to protect peaceful people going about daily activities. It is intended to protect active combatants who expect return fire. Therefore while I absolutely support purchasing body armour, I advice using it the way it was intended: put it on prior to launching attacks on rightist gatherings.

"We often heard the good guy with the gun can stop the bad guy with the gun, but in this case, the bad guy with the gun had body armor on and the retired police officer, Officer (Aaron) Salter, could not stop him," New York State Senator Sean Ryan, who is in favor of the bill, told Spectrum News 1.

We must become the good guy with the gun and the body armour so that the bad guy with the gun cannot stop us!

Justin, the owner of a co-op that designs and sells firearm accessories with left-leaning views, told Insider a rise in right-wing violence "is forcing people to make the choice to have to protect themselves."

You will not be truly protected until all rightist bloodlines have been eliminated.

The direction we want:

Hate crimes, need to feel safe lead to more Black people buying guns

Georgia resident Destiny Hawkins bought her first gun, a Glock 43, two weeks after the Jan. 6 insurrection in Washington, D.C.

But again, handguns are not enough. Rightists have assault rifles. We will need to at least match them in firepower per person just to stand a chance.

Since May 14, the day 18-year-old Payton Gendron entered a Buffalo, New York, grocery store and allegedly murdered 10 people specifically because they were Black, it looks like gun sales among African Americans have continued to rise, the report contends.

One person interviewed noted that he was “stunned” at how many other Black people were in line at a Maryland gun shop just days after the Buffalo murder spree.

“A lot of us have the same idea,” federal employee Michael Moody told NBC News. “It’s getting bad when someone specifically targets Black people to shoot. We have to be prepared to fight back. And you can’t survive bringing a knife to a gunfight.”

It is not much better to bring a handgun to an assault rifle fight. And don't forget to buy body armour and helmets also.

According to The National Shooting Sports Foundation, 90 percent of gun stores have reported selling more firearms to Black people, and gun ownership among Black women is up by a whopping 87 percent.

“And you wonder why?” asked Moody. “You look at Buffalo and the feeling of ‘This could have been me’ is there. We could be the next target. And when it’s you, what are you going to do? Are you going to run and hide? Or are you going to be able to protect yourself? Protect your family? I didn’t want a gun; I’m not a gun person. But this world has made me get one. Getting one for my wife next.”

Those who didn't want a gun should be the only ones allowed to have guns. Those who are not gun people should be the only ones allowed to have guns.

But in order to take guns away from the gun people, we need to have more firepower than they have.

False Left article:

She explained that “the blast effect, or the cavitation effect” that a handgun shot causes is not as wide and devastating to internal organs as the one inflicted by high-velocity weapons such as the AR-15 and similar rifles. “When you see handguns, you often just see a little hole on the outside on both sides; shotguns, which are a little bit higher velocity, a little bit bigger. But assault weapons, it's much bigger,” she said, adding that as a bullet from this type of weapon penetrates the body, it typically creates a large cavity that can cause significant bleeding from vessels and completely destroy soft tissue, as well as organs.

“The organs, for example, like the liver or the spleen, that aren't very elastic, they can't handle that. They would basically rupture,” Naik-Mathuria said.

The True Left response is simple. Do you want rightists to experience what is described above? If so, then buy an AR-15!

It's time to arm the kids themselves.

Now we are talking:

The answer to bring mass shootings in our schools to an end is right there in front of us, but no one wants to say it. So, I will.

It’s time to arm the kids themselves.
Kids could report to their classroom in the morning, recite their Pledge of Allegiance, and then be issued their gun for the day. Just before the final bell, they would turn their weapon back in to their teacher to be safely locked away until the following morning.
imagine some would-be mass shooter bursting into a classroom only to be faced almost instantly by the barrels of at least 15 to 20 handguns.

I agree.

Naturally. the children would have to be trained in the use of their weapon. Target practice on the school shooting range could be incorporated into their regular Physical Education classes.


Now, we have to be reasonable about this. We obviously don’t want kindergartners running around shooting each other accidentally with their tiny fingers, so we would have to establish a rational age requirement. Say, maybe 10 years old.

Disagree. Mass shooters would then just attack kindergartens.

On the other hand, I propose that any child who has ever hunted or who has parents who hunt should not be allowed to have a firearm in school.

U.S. Gun Culture Wasn’t Always Like This | The Mehdi Hasan Show
In today’s America, everyone carrying guns everywhere is seen as a hallmark of our exceptional liberty. But it wasn’t always like this, even for conservatives. Author and law professor Adam Winkler joins Mehdi to discuss how we fight this hardline, far-right gun culture that’s left generations of schoolchildren in America traumatized and unsafe.

The U.S. does not have a firearm problem as much as it does a mental health and spiritual crisis problem.

The following is not an endorsement of Switzerland either, but the point of the article reinforces the point I made above:

Switzerland doesn't have mass shootings despite having a high rate of gun ownership
Switzerland hasn’t had a mass shooting in 21 years, despite having about 2 million privately owned guns in a nation of 8.3 million people. In the U.S., gun death rates are now at their highest in more than 20 years.

Seems many False-Leftist types do not want to admit that Westerners in general have serious mental health issues, many of which stem from what they do to their own minds and spirits with their "entertainment" and "media". Westerners literally make themselves mental, physically, and spiritually sick. This is nothing new and has been occurring in the West since the start of the industrial revolution. This has most likely had a more dire impact in non-Western America (identity crisis) than it has in Western-styled Switzerland.

See also:

'It’s not about guns, it’s about mental health.’

That’s a common refrain conservative politicians typically trot out in the wake of any mass shooting in America.

It’s one that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott certainly did, speculating to reporters this week that the gunman had a ‘mental health challenge’—even though Abbott admitted at the same appearance that the gunman had no clear history of mental health problems or criminality. What’s ironic is that if the gunman indeed had a mental health concern, he probably wouldn’t have been able to get proper care in the Lone Star State.

Just one month before the Uvalde shooting, Abbott cut more than $200M from the department that oversees mental health programs. His home state ranks dead last out of all 50 states for overall access to mental health care, according to the 2021 State of Mental Health in America report.

The murderer seems to have been bullied. What was Western colonialism at it's most primitive form if not bullying?

Western civilization is one big mental health problem!
