(MSN)   Both Gov Ron DeSantis and Turning Point USA have repeatedly argued the gun free zones make people LESS safe because "the bad guy with a gun doesn't have to worry about return fire". Guess what all the upcoming TPUSA/DeSantis rallies are?   (msn.com) divider line

People complain that politicians are too old, not me. DeSantis is about my age. That means barring his untimely death or being caught with a dead girl or live boy, I'm going to have to hear from him for the rest of my life. It also means that his being President is inevitable, in this election or ten more from now.

The GQP is all about rules for thee, but not for me.
You have to live with gun toting maniacs everywhere - they don't.
Why? Because when push comes to shove, they don't trust the ammosexuals anymore than you - and very likely, Less.

What if he gets caught in flagrante delicto with a dead boy? I would hope that would be a deal breaker as well.

As to him being president... Sadly, unless something happens to crotchpunch all the states passing laws allowing voter intimidation and disenfranchisement (not to mention outright gerrymandering) you are likey right.

Gun free zones would make people safer if we had metal detectors before we went any place where people gathered.  Putting up a sign doesn't stop anyone from carrying a gun, well at least not the people you want to stop.

They "want" everybody armed to the teeth; except for where they work, live, and play.
They "want" small govt; except when it comes to abortion, gay rights, CRT...
They "want" to reduce the deficit; except when it comes to tax cuts for the very top earners.
They "want" personal freedom; unless it goes against their personal beliefs or involves drugs.
They "want" state's rights; except where they don't agree: abortion, gay marriage, gun laws...
They "want" capitalism; except when big banks/businesses fail and that impacts their investments.

Really I'm sure it's the policies of the venues to not allow guns. Even Four Seasons Landscaping probably doesn't allow firearms on the premises.
 
2022-08-09 5:06:52 PM  
There are nations with very high gun ownership that don't have nearly the problems we do.

They also have good mental health care, prisons that actually reform people, schools that teach empathy, don't glorify violence, etc etc,

And don't pass out military grade weapons like candy.

They also don't let you carry your guns into a football event where emotions run high.

Find a venue that allows it or hold the event on the politicians giant-ass property.

DeathSantis is important. You're not. That's why.

because unless your job requires it, people who open carry in public are in bear country or are crazy and should be avoided.

How to identify a Bad Guy With a Gun:

Gun-permitted zones: The Bad Guy With a Gun is the guy who brought a gun and killed someone with it.
Gun-free zones: The Bad Guy With a Gun is the guy who brought a gun.

Guess what all the upcoming TPUSA/DeSantis rallies are?

If they're outside probably a great place make money selling SPF70 sunscreen.

Alternatively;

-A great place outside of a t-shirt rack to find a bunch of wife beaters

-Where you can get advice on German war memorabilia

-Somewhere you could get drunk quickly if you take a shot every time you hear someone say woke

-A gathering of the marketing demographic for all recent and future Kevin Sorbo movies

They "want" a Christian Nation, but they don't want to follow any of Christ's actual teachings.

Wow, Republican hypocrisy. Surprised I am. Really.
 
2022-08-09 5:23:14 PM  
It's not about guns. Just like it's not about abortion. The GOP and Republicans don't actually believe in or care about the vast majority of bull that spills from their lips. It's all about playing with people's emotions and manipulating ideas in order to control people.

They talk about guns, protecting yourself, the danger of gun free zones, etc, because it instills fear. They seek to remind you that we live in a chaotic world where anything can happen. You might die! Criminals are everywhere! Only we can save you! And it's represented via guns. When they say "Democrats want to take your guns!" what they're really trying to do is plant Democrats = fear in the minds of their voters. They don't care about facts or reality. Forget that you're far more likely to kill a loved one with a gun than a home intruder. Forget that the more guns there are in the US the more gun homicides there will be through sheer statistical numbers. Forget that only very rarely does a good guy with a gun actually succeed in stopping anything. None of it matters because they're playing a psychological game.

No Subby you don't understand, they just count on their victims not being armed.

Because armed queers and armed minorities bash back.

"The bad guy with a gun doesn't have to worry about return fire."

Is this seriously the best argument they can come up with? Any "bad guy" running into a mob of gun toting lunatics is most likely suicidal anyway so wouldn't care.  Also, if every MF is running around with an AR-15 any one of them could just start blasting away whenever they feel like.  We're talking 10-20 dead in one minute before any "good guy" can even unholster. It's unbelievable the weird vigilante fantasies these dumbasses have floating around in their damaged brains.

If Democrats want to be savvy and play a solid game of politics that will effectively expose the hypocrisy, they should have a group of white people dressed up like they might be in a militia open carrying firearms try to enter the event. When denied entry have them start calling DeSantis "woke" and accuse him of violating their 2nd Amendment rights and cancelling them.

The political right does something similar when they have a right wing nut job schedule a speaking event at a traditionally liberal university. The second the campus liberal activists get wind and make a stink about it (as the right wing strategists want to happen), the right wing grabs hold of it and starts spreading the intolerant left narrative.

Time the left does something similar, and DeSantis's gun free zone rallies would be a perfect place to start.

I mean there's groups like Pink pistols (which are unfortunately very conservative leaning) and the socialist rifle association.

Yes but THESE gun free zones are to keep out the Antifa super soldiers. OTHER gun free zones target good, freedom loving Americans.

It's very simple, liberal snowflakemitter.

What's really sad is that I doubt that would be enough to ruin a Republican's career, nowadays. It's one of the reasons I can't watch "Dave" anymore, either.

Well, you can fix it by having everyone take their guns out and point them at everyone else all the time. That way, no one gets shot!

I've thought about getting it cerakoted urban camo or tiger, and putting a trans flag on the buttstock just to trigger Reddit
