The Left is coming out of the woodwork for gun control. It’s like they’ve opened the doors to the asylum.
A fellow by the name of D. Watkins has a new article up at Salon. On his resume you’ll find a book titled, “The Beast Side: Living and Dying While Black in America,” a Master’s in Education, and he’s the winner of Baltimore magazine’s “Best Writer” award.
We note that for perspective, he starts off his screed with an old rant from Chris Rock.
As a teen I watched Chris Rock brilliantly address America’s gun problem during his Bigger and Blacker stand up. “We don’t need gun control,” Rock pleaded to a packed house, “We need bullet control––if bullets were $5000, people would think before they shot some one! You gotta really piss someone off for them to dump $50,000 worth of bullets in to you!” And just like the crowd, my brother, some friends and I erupted in laughter.
That very idea has been fronted more times than I can count. A big supporter of this is Barack Obama. He voiced strong support for a 500% tax on ammunition but never had the courage to actually propose it.
Watkins is so sure of his righteousness on this he gives us a guarantee: “If we could successfully implement this rule, I guarantee the mass shootings will stop.” He fails to realize that the same people engaging in “mass shootings” would simply move to mass knifings.
He carries on as you’d expect and praises Hillary and Bernie for fighting over who’s the toughest on gun control. He also takes a litany of cheap shots at Ben Carson because “if you want to win a Republican nomination, you must be a rifle-hugging Christian.” Nice.
Of course gun owners support slavery. Doesn’t everything?
Gun praisers are just like the people who were in favor of slavery back in the day–– the elite, lazy and ignorant who weren’t being beaten, raped or in the field doing the work, so they were perfectly okay with involuntary servitude, which is a problem and why I think gun owners need to feel more––they need a taste of the other side.
And finally we come to his Gotterdammerung …
So if you love guns, if they make you feel safe, if you hold and cuddle with them at night, then you need to be shot. You need to feel a bullet rip through your flesh, and if you survive and enjoy the feeling––then the right to bear arms will be all yours.
It’s time for the Democrats to take a real stand. Stand up for what we know they believe. Put it in black and white and be proud of it. Let’s hope that Democrats follow the logic put forth by Mr. Watkins. Let them add a plank to their platform calling for gun confiscation. Both Barack and Hillary have gone out of their way to praise the “Australian solution,” which led to grabbing up every gun in private hands.
So come on Democrats, it’s time to come out of the closet! Wear you gun control armband with pride.
Please. Stand up for a repeal of the 2nd Amendment. You know you want to.
