Preaching To The Choir

Once again the uproar about “gun control” is at a fever pitch. There are some changes I would like to see, starting with a dose of honesty.

 The gun grabbers are terrified by firearms and want them confiscated but lack the courage to come out and say it. Instead, they use death by a thousand cuts. I actually admire Sen. Feinstein for being upfront.

With her we know where we stand.

Random thoughts.

“You are entitled to your opinion. You are not entitled to your own facts.”  Daniel Patrick Moynihan

From a blog.

So. Just a Thought.

If you asked someone to give a detailed history of the geology of wherever you are, most people would have the honesty to say "I don't know" because most people don't study the details of geology.

But the same people, with the same level of knowledge of guns as they have of geology, will lecture you all day long about guns.

Something that can be done fairly easily.

HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that all the required physical, network, and process security measures are in place and followed.

Modify portions of this act to let health professionals report people they deem mentally unstable to a review by the judicial system. As in, if they are bat shit crazy, disarm them. Potential for abuse? Damn right, but that can be addressed.

Next, vigorously enforce the laws we already have on the books! Duh.

Last, be grateful for what we have received, the Constitution, and strive to preserve and protect it.

Change coffee to firearms, and my “feeling” are these.

I have a great idea - and maybe you can quit your day job eventually. Universities can increase tuition on the snotty prog children and THAT money can be used to induce firearms owners to turn in their weapons for fair market value. I see a business opportunity, of course. The cartels smuggle in AK-47's that they buy from China at a bulk discount rate of about $90 each into America where the Americans double their profit, paying $180 each. Americans then sell them to the progressive universities for $600 each. And maybe a buck a bullet?

I'm not greedy, WSF. I figure that two containers of AK-47's at a profit of $400 per weapon would buy me a LOT of toys. I'm sure that Harvard would be up for handing me a check for $1 million. You can pick out another sucker to sell your consignment to.

When you consider that Mexican drug cartels successfully smuggle containers full of cocaine into the US, smuggling a few dozen containers of AK's for us and fellow bloggers to trade in (a progressive move on our part) for fair market value wouldn't be much effort.

Wonderful idea! The Harvard MBA candidates can develop the business plan and either Feinstein or Pelosi's husbands can lease us distribution facilities.

Done right, we could make money selling tickets to watch (P)regressive's heads explode.
