#JaneGotAGun/@janegotagunfilm Trailer #Reaction And Discussion

I hate to get political when discussing or reacting to movies. Doesn’t mean I will shy away from it. Take for example, this upcoming movie Jane Got A Gun:

I first want to get the non-politics talk first, just because. My first reaction, is that of the cast list. On my goodness, this is a Star Wars prequel reunion (more or less)! Natalie Portman, Joel Edgerton, and Ewan McGregor were all in the prequels at one point or another. If you don’t know exactly what Joel Edgerton did, he played the young Owen Lars. Also of note, Ewan McGregor is replacing Bradley Cooper, who replaced Jude Law, who replaced Joel Edgerton, who replaced Michael Fassbender.

The trailer really doesn’t do the movie’s plot justice. It makes it seem like Jane (Natalie Portman) is an outlaw fighting the good guys and she needs help defending her home. That seems, interesting, to say the least. However that is not the case. Here is the synopses I got from the Wikipedia page:

Jane Hammond (Natalie Portman) has built a new life with her husband Bill “Ham” Hammond (Noah Emmerich) after being tormented by the Bishop Boys gang. She finds herself in the gang’s crosshairs once again when Ham stumbles home riddled with bullets after dueling with the Boys and their relentless leader, Colin (Ewan McGregor). With the vengeful crew hot on Ham’s trail, Jane has nowhere to turn but to her former fiancĂ© Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton) for help in defending her family against certain death. Haunted by old memories, Jane’s past meets the present in a heart-stopping battle for survival.

The trailer is setting us up for one thing and the movie is going in a different direction. Maybe the truth lies somewhere in between. This is why people don’t like trailers. The movie presented in the trailer seems a lot more interesting than the synopses. Just saying.

However my interest in the movie is more academic than anything. With “Gun Control” all the rage right now, I have to ask a couple questions to the left:

Would progressive/liberals take away Jane’s right to self defense and strip her of her gun? Does “Stand Your Ground” not apply here? Would they tell Jane to piss on herself when the bad guys comes to take her? Do you think a “Gun Free Zone” sign outside Jane’s house turn back the Bishop Boys?

I would really like to hear your answers.

Well, see ya’ later!

#GunSense: #GunControl = #PoliceState …Enough Said

The Left On Gun Control

I want to start off with that I have nothing against individual police officers in general. This is not about them. There may be bad apples within their ranks, but I respect your service.

No, this is about the left talking out their mouths and ass at the same time.

Look at the “Black Lives Matter” protests. Their main gripe is the police have too much power. They hate the police. In fact, one of their main chants “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon!” is well known. Once liberals got back in power in NYC, they stopped the Stop-And-Frisk policy over there.

They also hate guns. I do not have to link or quote much in order for you to get the picture. You can not throw a stone at Daily Kos without hitting a gun control article. They want to use the power of the state to take away your guns. In fact, they will need a huge police state to enforce gun control. Ross Douthat paints the picture:

The best analogue is Prohibition, which did have major public health benefits …but which came at a steep cost in terms of police powers, black markets and trampled liberties.

I suspect liberals imagine, at some level, that a Prohibition-style campaign against guns would mostly involve busting up gun shows and disarming Robert Dear-like trailer-park loners. But in practice it would probably look more like Michael Bloomberg’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy, with a counterterrorism component that ended up heavily targeting Muslim Americans. In areas where gun ownership is high but crime rates low, like Bernie Sanders’ Vermont, authorities would mostly turn a blind eye to illegal guns, while poor and minority communities bore the brunt of raids and fines and jail terms.

See, this is what gun control will look like. It will be a police state to enforce gun control. The left wants gun control because then they will then be the ones in control.

Now before you get all high and mighty on me about legalizing of marijuana, I want to point out a that there is a difference between getting high and self-defense. Getting stone is not a constitutional right. We have other non-additive anti-inflammatory and pain-killing drugs. I have seen people’s lives ruined using drugs. When the government gets out of control, I can’t throw marijuana at them in self-defense. I also find it morally repugnant to grow the government with taxes from additive marijuana. To keep and bear Arms, is a right. I have seen countless stories where armed people have saved their, or other people’s lives, with a gun.

Well, see ya’ later!

The Swamp #44

Gun Free Zones Kill

The Swamp #44: #GunControl, #SmartGuns, #GunFreeZones, @bandlersbanter Guest!

Today me and Kat talk about Gun Control. We also talk about mental health issues and, while it is a good debate to have, linking it with gun control is tricky business and warrants more debate. Then we discuss why those “Smart Guns” are really dumb. Then Aaron Bandler joins us and we all talk about those deadly Gun Free Zones. But before you listen, check out my Patreon Page!

#GunSense: New #WarOnChristianity Wants To Leave You Defenseless

“Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.” -Ian Fleming

Nine people are dead after an attacker opened fire in a historically black church in Charleston, S.C. Wednesday night. “This is an unfathomable and unspeakable act by someone filled with hate, and with a deranged mind,” Charleston Mayor Joseph Riley said in a press conference Thursday morning.

Okay, this is clearly happenstance. The Charleston church was a soft target and gun free zone (more on that later). So this could have been a one time deal. The asshole here was racist and this was a black church, so of course they are Christians.

A gunman singled out Christians, telling them they would see God in “one second,” during a rampage at an Oregon college Thursday that left at least nine innocent people dead and several more wounded, survivors and authorities said.

“[He started] asking people one by one what their religion was. ‘Are you a Christian?’ he would ask them, and if you’re a Christian, stand up. And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you are going to see God in just about one second.’ And then he shot and killed them,” Stacy Boylen, whose daughter was wounded at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore., told CNN.

Is this a coincidence? Another group of Christians murdered? Again, soft target and a gun free zone.

I am sensing a pattern here. Christians are being murdered in deadly “gun free zones” and the best answer that any liberal/progressive has to offer, is to-

vent righteous indignation, then look around for someone to blame for a problem that almost certainly has no legislative remedy. Congresses under control of both parties certainly haven’t found any, and none of the proposals that percolate out in the minutes after a publicized shooting incident turn out to apply when all of the facts finally come out.

The only hint of a policy from anyone came from Obama, who praised Australia for their reaction to a mass shooting, and that solution was a massive firearm confiscation program.

What a surprise. The guy who thinks most law abiding citizen clings to guns and religion, wants to confiscate your gun and leave you completely defenseless. Self-defense or the Second Amendment doesn’t matter to Obama. If it were up to him, Obama would confiscate your means of self-defense right now.

I find it paradoxical that those who want to cancel out the Second Amendment, are the loudest to complain about a police state when talking about our current law enforcement officers. If we confiscate all the guns from law abiding citizens, then we will demand a larger police presence. Or haul you into big cities against your will, for “your protection” of course.

Do we need Ian Fleming’s “enemy action” before we ourselves take action? Christians are now being targeted and others now want us to be easier targets. I am all for forgiveness and turning the other cheek, however I don’t think Christianity was supposed to be a suicide pack. If it is a suicide pack, then the first Christians would have died with Stephen than flee Jerusalem. I reject the idea that just because you are a Christian, you can’t fight back to save your life or another’s life.

Before I close this up, I want my fellow liberal/progressive to answer me this question honestly: You’re a criminal. Laws do not matter to you and have many guns yourself. Two towns lay before you. One town has a “shall issue” CCW permitting, no “gun free zones” anywhere, and at least one gun shop. The other town has a “may issue” CCW permitting, “gun free zones” in a couple places (churches, schools, and a movie theater), and no gun shops in sight. Which town do you moved to?

Well, see ya’ later!

#GunSense: You Don’t Need A Gun To #Murder People

First, I like to offer my prayers for the families and friends Alison Parker and Adam Ward, as well as my unending hope they had their peace with God before the end. I also hope for the quick recovery of the third victim. My prayers for her and all of her family as well.

Second, I have watched the video of the murder. I will not embed or link it here, but I will describe it as best I can. Alison Parker was all smiles and having a nice talk about tourism. Then the shots ring out. Adam Ward turns as he falls to the ground, catching a glimpse of the murderer. We might even see some of his blood. Adam Ward did not make a sound. The third victim also doesn’t make a sound. However Alison Parker does not stay quite, at all. Parker screams and screams and yells “Oh My God!” just as the feed is cut off. That was the real screams of woman being murdered.

This is why we have the Death Penalty, people. I really want someone to defend “Life Without Parole” for this guy. In fact, I’d like to see this guy get the firing squad. Wouldn’t that be poetic justice for this wonton death and destruction?

With that all out of the way, I already hear the calls for “gun control” spring up. You don’t need a gun to murder people. To blame the gun, would be like blaming the rope the KKK used to hang people. The 9/11 Hijackers also didn’t need guns. If this monster didn’t have a gun to commit the murder, the monster could have a knife to stab these people. Or a blunt object or his hands to beat them to death. Or a bomb to blow the TV station. Or a car to run a WDBJ van off the road.

Do I want to see a world without guns? Yes, absolutely! I look forward to the day when we no longer have them. However for every story I hear of someone being murdered with a gun, I hear two or three stories about an armed person defending themselves with a gun. Guns are not evil or good, they just are. To unilaterally disarm the law abiding good people of this world of their best means of self-defense is just wrong. The bad guys do not care about gun control or gun free zones.

Gun control isn’t about controlling guns, but about controlling people. It is about making people dependent on the government and/or police state for their safety.

Well, see ya’ later!

About That Funny As Hell @Explosm Video

Ok, nothing is going to make sense until you watch the video. Just as a warning, not safe for work or little ones:

Now I am only going to talk only about the Star Spangle Bastard segment, so I only embeded that part. If you want to watch the whole video, go here.

I want to first start out by saying that this is funny, REALLY funny. No Gun Rights activist with a sense of humor should honestly be offended by this video. I was laughing my ass off by the end. In fact, it showed a few things right about gun control:

  1. In Common Law, the Fleeing Felon Rule permits the use of force (including deadly force) against an individual who is suspected of a felony, poses a threat of serious physical harm, and is in clear flight. Force may be used by the victim, bystanders, or police officers. The bank robbers all came in with guns and the Star Spangle Bastard had every reason to believe that the fleeing criminal posed a physical threat to other people. Thus the Star Spangle Bastard was not arrested and the left-wing MSM vilified him, yet honored the criminal. Very subtle there.
  2. Getting rid of all guns won’t stop wars. To be brutally honest, there were wars before guns. We’ll just rediscover old ways of warfare.
  3. Even if guns are magically wisk away, it won’t stop criminals. Again, they committed crime long before guns. We still have strong-arm crime even to this day.
  4. Gun Control advocates will lose in the end, just like in this video.

What the video got wrong:

  1. Every Gun Rights advocate would be appalled by Star Spangle Bastard’s gun use. This is just a false characterization by the left of the avarage Gun Rights advocate.
  2. Every Gun Rights advocate knows the Second Amendment is there, for the people, to protect the rest of the Bill Of Rights.

The other stuff is open to interpretation, but very amusing video neverless. The only reason that we shouldn’t be angry over this video, is that the gun control arguments presented here are strawmen and can be easily dismissed in any debate. We should see this as the beginning of the conversation and not the end. Check out my podcast on the subject.

Well, see ya’ later!
